    This is exactly what I alluded to in another thread. Use racism as an excuse to fail and it builds a barrier to solving real racism issues.

    I once had to listen to Achey Breaky Heart about 50 times in a long night while I was desperately trying to sleep in a cheap hotel in rural Mexico; played by a really bad Mexican kicker band that only knew one kicker song and a few norteno pieces. So I despise her and her old man regardless of her opinions about genitalia

    All of this reminds me when my kids were playing (separately) make believe games in their heads, and then starting a fight about which make believe game was being played correctly. It’s an absurdity to believe there is one way to play a make believe game. Same with gender, etc. These people are so stupid and/or mentally unwell.

    Wish I hadn’t read that. Guess I expected more from 03’s posting - no offense 03 - but I found it disgusting. My fault cause she generally is disgusting to me anyway.

    Lol sorry next time I'll try to be even more shocking with my outrage. Was hoping the heads exploding and disturbing description would suffice. Yeah the article is graphic.

    @mb227 , get ready to go on dates and start hearing and expected to accept, "oh, don't mind that. That's just my dick. I'm still a girl and still a lesbian." Twenty years ago, I'll bet you didn't think the big push to make you like penises would come from the Left. I definitely didn't see it coming.

    What is frustrating is that lesbians have been pointing this out for the past decade or so on various social media and getting banned or suspended for speaking out over that nonsense...just like we are being the subject of shouting down over the EO that allows intact males to compete in women's events.

    I wonder how long before the vets speak out over ending the prohibition on VA funding of surgeries for the delusional...

    To me, it's the most obvious thing. The idea that we would permit subjective perceptions and claims about one's gender to legally override that person's objective sex and require society to treat people and reorder itself according to those perceptions and claims is utter lunacy. I never thought I'd see the day and see supposedly erudite and intelligent people taking that approach. It's stupid beyond measure.

    Furthermore, the idea that we would try to stimulate cultural pressure for people to tailor their sexual practices and preferences around those subjective perceptions and claims rather than biological sex is even nuttier. And I wonder why this seems to get put on lesbians more than it's put on straight dudes, even though the dynamic is the same. Is there a perception that lesbians are less certain about their attraction to women than straight men are and therefore more willing to overlook the whole penis issue? Or do these people think it'll be easier in the short term to shame lesbians and build momentum with them, because they are a sexual minority and therefore should more readily empathize with the "transwoman lesbian" (or whatever you'd call a guy who claims to be a woman but wants to get with women)? It's bizarre all the way around.

    I'm learning all sorts of interesting lingo in bizarro world. Probably as good as time as any to brush up on the vocabulary of the "woke."

    There are "TERFs" (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists)--these are feminist women who maintain that transgender men-to-women are not really women (the position held by most civilizations for some 6,000 + years). The woke scene has turned strongly against them.

    And apparently, your haircut now is used to identify your position on this issue...

    Surely, this stuff should be the subject for an upper division seminar course at The University.

    They are playing make believe games in their head. It’s the logical end point to pushing social changes (regardless of it’s worth) that bump against hard biological facts like men can’t have periods, etc.

    There is an interesting concept as to what is the limit as to defining oneself. On a less extreme level, take the person born in Country X, but who really likes the people and culture of Country Y, to the point he dresses, talks, and acts like Country Y citizens, perhaps even moving to Country Y. He declares himself a Y person--even though most would say he's not, he's not a Y citizen, and is from a different race/ethnic group than the Y people. He defines himself, and identifies, as a Y person. There is something free about allowing people to be who they want to be and identify as who they think they are.


    I think there were plenty of Caucasians, and part-Caucasians, who became Comanches after being kidnapped (or their mothers kidnapped), including their greatest war chief (greatest in recorded history anyway). But I think that culture (Comanche) valued fighting ability above all else, so they didn't really care whether you were fair skinned, brown, or black. (as far as I know) If you could fight, and adopted their ways, you could become one of them, and they would accept you.

    With sex/gender, it's a stickier situation, as modesty concerns make having a person with a **** in a female locker room problematic. It also goes to the very definition of male and female.

    The more traditional approach is to call such a person a man with a kinky* habit of dressing up and acting like a woman.

    To intellectuals for 300 years, logic doesn't matter and there is no objective standard for values and reality. Transgenderism is totally in line with their prevailing beliefs. It has just taken decades for their ideas to be applied to human biology.

    I was surprised too earlier. But from what I have been reading, this was inevitable.

    This is from 2015 . If facts actually were paid attention to it would destroy the woke and MSM rant that whitey is the only one killing blacks

    They do. Macau makes a killing. Chinese government is aware of this problem and limits casinos on the mainland. USA could get every nickel back from China if we could open a casino in every city.

    The idea of wearing sneakers and pearls is also one of the dumbest looks you could come up with. It’s what a homeless person would do, wearing everything of value they own to keep the next bum from stealing it from their shopping cart.

    I swear, when Slow Joe soils his diapers with such a liquid load that it runs down his pants and crap pools up on his shoes, the media will say how environmentally conscious he is for using a waterless toilet.

    The Pai Gow tables at the casinos do seem to be dominated by folks from the other side of the international date line.

    So do the high limit tables.

    You used to have to walk through a giant MGM Lion's mouth to get into the MGM casino in Vegas. I've heard that MGM totally revamped the entrance to the hotel, removing the giant lion's mouth and replacing it with a smaller lion statue over to the side, because Asian gamblers thought walking through the lion's mouth was unlucky somehow. Vegas bends over backwards for our Eastern visitors, so yes, I believe that they do love to gamble.

    Speaking of the cancel culture, according to Fox News, the San Francisco school board is renaming schools name after the following people:

    Washington and Jefferson because they were slave owners.
    Lincoln because he was mean to indigenous people.
    Diane Feinstein gets the ax because she replaced a damaged Confederate Flag in 1986 as mayor of San Fran.

    Others bad actors to be removed include: Francis Scott Key, William McKinley, James Garfield, James Monroe, Herbert Hoover, Paul Revere, and Robert Louis Stevenson.

    Why don't they just go with the Critical Race Theory axiom that anybody white is a racist and therefore, shouldn't have a school named after them?

    Heard a report this morning that the Board did not know which Roosevelt the school had been named after...irionical coming from the Board that wants to waste money to rename schools that they don't even KNOW the names of the schools.

    Wow, they will have to dig deep to find someone perfect enough to use their name. Mother Teresa was too much of a pro lifer so I’m thinking they’ll have to go with school #1, #2, etc.

    If San Fran actually had a real press corps, it should investigate the school board members to see what it could dig up on them. I'll be there's a yearbook picture posed in blackface or something of that ilk around out there. The people who scream the loudest always have the most to hide.

    California unemployment scams are about to blow up in the Labor appointee Biden is pushing. Seems they insisted on shoveling funds at claimants without the slightest effort being made to confirm eligibility. One enterprising thief even got ~$20K on a debit card in the name of...Diane Feinstein LOL!

    Of course, the State is trying to figure out how to blame Trump, but the funds are a State-level distribution. Cali isn't the only State hit by fraud, but it sure seemed to run more rampant in the State's that believe in allowing people to suckle at the government teet...

    EDD fraud: 27% of unemployment payments could be fraudulent

    California unemployment fraud scandal grows to $11 billion, with another $20 billion under scrutiny

    There are other reports as well, including from December when some of the problems apparently were just coming to light at the State level. But when someone like Julie Su is hitting the national stage, it becomes a bigger story.

    Year Zero was supposed to be a frightening part of Man in the High Castle, where all American monuments and history were destroyed to make way for the glorious new future, not a blueprint for the Democrat party.

    I assume they'll name all their schools after Obama, with maybe a few Mao schools in there as well, in return for a bribe from the Chinese Communist Party.

    Uh oh...

    San Francisco is named for Saint Francis--who founded a religious order that did not admit women. Better change the name of that town.
