Podcast – Transgenders vs Feminism

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

You may have heard that a couple of transgender students, boys who think they’re girls, were allowed to compete at a girls track meet recently in Connecticut. It didn’t go well for the girls as the fake girls kicked their butts.

Now there’s a debate about whether this is fair for the girls who have given up much to workout, train and compete, all for nothing – to lose to boys playing dress up.

Well, it’s not fair – it’s absurd, but this is the disease of radical leftism. They will keep on pushing ridiculous agenda items as this until the system just collapses or enough people of common sense declare that enough is enough. And that time has come.

Students Disagree, then Agree on Wedding Cake Ruling

Campus Reform recently sent one of their people out to troll the streets of Washington DC. He asked college-aged passers-by their thoughts on the supreme Court decision allowing the Colorado baker to refuse to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual couple. Should the baker be forced to bake the cake. He asked: “Do you agree or disagree with that ruling?”

The responses started out as we would expect. They all disagreed. But then he threw in a couple of curve ball questions and things got a bit more muddled. Shockingly, the responses were not all bad.

Is Ocean’s 8 a Women’s Empowerment Statement or just Another Failed Reboot

The movie “Ocean’s 8” debuted last night. I wrote this article last night, as movie-goers no doubt thronged to their local theaters, so I don’t yet know of the first night box office tally. But I’m certain the much anticipated all-female thriller/crime film raked it in. Or maybe it didn’t.

UPDATE: Well, it’s starting well. The movie took in $44 million in its opening.

Considering it only cost $70 million to make, I’m sure it will do fine. I mean, the first Ocean’s movie, “11,” cost $85 million and it was made 17 years ago, in 2001. Its box office take was almost a half a billion dollars worldwide. And that was a reboot of the 1960 original starring the Rat-Pack. Even with the 2001 star power, the reboot couldn’t match the cool of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Peter Lawford.

But why make this in the first place? Did the industry not learn anything from the disastrous female reboot of the all-Male Ghost Busters franchise? That bomb lost almost $75 million.

Although Ocean’s 8 may not lose money, I doubt it will be the surprise box office smash of the summer. I may end up being wrong, but I think that relatively few movie goers want to plunk down their cash to see a bunch of “empowered” women play at being men. read more

Teacher Gets the Ax over a Name

A school teacher has recently been fired because he refused to call students by the name they prefer rather than their given names.

No, it wasn’t a case of Robert wanting to be called Bob, or Juliet wanting to be called Julie. That would have been simple. But it seems life in the public school system never is these days, even in a State like Indiana, which isn’t exactly considered as a hot-bed of leftism.

Yet, now Former Brownsburg High School orchestra teacher John Kluge, is without employment because he believes it’s wrong to call transgendered students by their “preferred” names, rather than the name which was given them at birth.

Yes – this is the soul reason why Kluge is unemployed, and now probably black-balled as a hater from seeking employment at any public school. read more

Narratives and Facts Often Don’t Mix

What took them so darn long? We’re rapidly approaching the two year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, yet we’re just now discovering some facts about the case that are kind of important. Facts that actually set the record straight. Pardon the pun.

For almost two years, Omar Mateen, the Pulse Nightclub shooter, was thought to be a reticent homosexual. A few of the patrons even swore they had seen him at the club, trolling for homosexual hook-ups, or whatever they’re called.

It was said he specifically picked this nightclub because of his repressed homosexual feelings. Even his ex-wife from several years ago, Sitora Yusufiy, said that she had noticed behavior that made her wonder if Omar was straight. Of course she didn’t say this, and probably never noticed it until the media began running with the narrative that Mateen was a closet homosexual. Once suggested to Yusufiy, her mind picked up, and ran with it. It’s like the old: “You know – now that you mention it – he was acting a little strange,” or something like that. It’s also why the practice of attorney’s “leading” witnesses is frowned upon. The power of suggestion can be very powerful indeed.

I mean – after all – it was a gay nightclub. What other motivation could there have been. read more

NWA has a New Meaning on College Campus

NWA used to mean something else.

Ni**az Wit Attitudes

Now:

from Campus Reform:

Texas students launch ‘No Whites Allowed’ magazine

  • A group of students at the University of Texas, San Antonio plans to start publishing a “No Whites Allowed” (NWA) magazine.
  • White people are welcome to attend the launch party Thursday night, but while their support is “appreciated,” the founders insist that “it’s a zine for QPOC and by QPOC [queer persons of color].”

VA Votes to Remain Gender Specific

The Episcopal Church votes to make God gender neutral, but the VA opts for their motto to remain. Good for the New VA.

U.S. Veterans Affairs headquarters refuses request to make its motto ‘gender neutral’

The Department of Veterans Affairs has denied a request to make its motto “gender neutral,” reports Stars and Stripes, a military newspaper.

For 59 years, the VA’s motto has read: “To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan.” The quote comes from Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address in 1865, the same year Lincoln created the government’s institution for volunteer soldiers. read more

California History Textbooks Celebrate the LGBT Movement

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

It is being reported that, “the California board of education brought to an end a decades-long campaign to emphasize lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender historical figures in state social-studies / history textbooks, approving K-8 volumes that make identity politics of all kinds the core of the subject.”

So grades K-8 will now be learning alternative history, of all the significant achievements of America’s homosexuals and cross-dressers. As a parent, I can think of nothing more enlightening than to teach my five year old that Ralph down the street, who dresses like a woman, is historically significant.

California State Senator Mark Leno, who represents San Francisco (where else) says that, “Most textbooks don’t include any historical information about the LGBT movement, which has great significance to both California and U.S. history. We are censoring the history lessons,” denying students “the facts of the struggle for equal rights.” Really – name three. And the annual gay-pride parade doesn’t count as being historically significant.

Coincidently, Leno is running for Mayor of San Francisco, but I’m sure this has nothing to do with his most recent push for LGBT significance. And last I checked, everyone in this country already has equal rights. Not special rights – just equal rights. read more

Be Prepared to be Peppered with Questions on Your Next Date

On Monday, Jeff Fisher, Jeffy, was filling in for Pat Gray on his Blaze Radio program. He spoke on many topics. One that interested me, because of the absurdity, was an article written by a radical feminist and posted on the website, “Wear Your Voice.”

The article was entitled, “10 THINGS EVERY INTERSECTIONAL FEMINIST SHOULD ASK ON A FIRST DATE.”

This person, who describes herself as a, “queer femme of color,” made an actual list of the 10 things everyone, or every radical leftist, should ask of a prospective friend, date or suitor, whether they be heterosexual, homosexual, or any of a dozen or so other classifications.

She says that she keeps, “close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; they’re true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia and misogyny. If you’re not going to support marginalized folks, then we can’t be friends, let alone date. The personal is political.”

Well I give her credit for one thing. She, unlike many leftists, at least admits that everything boils down to politics for those on the left. They seem to have nothing else. But what do I know. I’m a heterosexual Christian White guy who’s never been oppressed. Everything I am screams oppressor. read more

LGBTTQQIP2SAATRSQ

What if someday, I decide I’m sick of the grind. I’m tried of working and earning a living. I just want to be taken care of. Heck, at this point I’m even too lazy to go to the welfare office and fill out all that paperwork in order to collect free stuff. I’m just done with all the responsibility of being a societal human.

May I then self identify as some sort of unique zoo animal? What animal? I don’t know – I’m questioning. But I will get a place to sleep, three squares a day, and my very own habitat to stretch my legs, should I desire. I mean – why the heck not? Of course this sounds completely ridiculous, or it would have maybe a decade or so ago. Now, I’m thinking it doesn’t sound that far-fetched.

After all, we humans are now able to run the gamut of self-identification. It started simply enough. We were male or female. But that was too simplistic. Then we expanded to heterosexual and homosexual. Still not good enough. If you are a homosexual female you’re not just homosexual, but lesbian. And because homosexual developed a negative connotation, it was changed to gay. I guess because homosexual men are also happy people. I don’t know.

Still, this did not define us all, so the acronym LGBT was coined. A person could comfortably identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. However, some in our society still felt left out – and we sure can’t have that. So the letter scramble continues, giving us the most inclusive acronym to date – LGBTTQQIP2SAA. read more
