It was just another beautiful day of impending doom and gloom.
The evil Capitalist Industrial Complex pumped out trillions of pounds of carbon into the air, drilled mercilessly into the earth mothers crust to exploit her black blood of the earth and precious minerals. Meanwhile numerous cute, defenseless, furry, woodland creatures were slaughtered by backwoods, uneducated, rednecks without teeth and family genealogy problems. Earth was dying, and we were the cause. The beautiful summer flowers would soon wilt away and die. If Global Warming didn’t freeze them first, the acid rain from industrial pollution, or the rapidly depleting ozone layer from aerosol cans would eventually get them. Or the loss of the pink butt bullfrog’s natural habitat would destroy the fragile ecosystem that has remained unchanged for millions of years and kill us all. If only Al Gore had been elected back in 2000 instead of that dumb cowboy!
But instead of worrying about Earth and future generations, all the extreme right-wingers could think about was their precious jobs and tax cuts and border wall and stock market records. Fools. They elected Trump, and everyone knows the stock market is going to crash because of him. It’s just taking a little longer than CNN said it would.
But it’s too late now.
It was all stupid America’s fault, if only we hadn’t backed out of the Paris Accords. Then we could have reduced earths global warming by 0.00001 degrees per year. But instead America was pushing its imperialist will over everyone else and bullying them with undeserved might. Why couldn’t we be more like Europe or Canada? Prime Minister Trudeau was such a great man, at least he knew we could rehabilitate jihadists to be an extraordinarily powerful voice for the Muslim community. He was the beacon of hope that we no longer had.
Stepping past a large silver pickup, I intentionally dragged my keys down the side of it. Gas guzzlers were the bane of vehicular existence. Probably a stupid Trumpkin anyways. I huffed. He wasn’t my President. What a bozo. Obama was like, a gazillion times greater. He was a man of the people. He cared, he resonated, he even cried about things that he was passionate about.
I felt like we were very similar. I was passionate, and I cried a lot also. All the time.
Usually I wept for our future, where transgenders weren’t welcome in the military, where racist bigoted celebrities could be President, where Health Care wasn’t treated as a basic human right, where entire families of immigrants were deported behind an iron wall of hatred, where Radical Islam was considered the biggest threat instead of Russian Collusion or a Republican controlled Congress. Or where we couldn’t get rid of unwanted fetuses. They were just clumps of cells. Like removing a tumor or something. And if conservatives weren’t going to pay for them to be taken care of after they are born, who are they to act so high and mighty about killing them? They just wanted them to starve or not be able to read good or learn how to do other stuff really good too. Besides, they believe in corporal punishment. And everyone knows you should ask a child’s consent before you punish them, hold them, or hug them. Bunch of hypocritical child abusers is what they are.
There was always something to cry or be passionate about.
I kicked the trucks bumper for good measure, but my Birkenstocks didn’t do any damage. They just made my exposed toes hurt as I stubbed them.
I straightened my safety pin on my fashionable $40 Che Guevara T-shirt and reminded myself that I am a refuge of safety and dignity. There is strength in me, and I won’t be silenced or intimidated. The world was full of injustice, and I was a social justice warrior.
Then I saw it.
Someone had tried to peel it away, but I could still make out the large H and the “I’m With” lettering on the arrow that pointed to the side. The sticker was faded and torn, and Hillary’s name was almost unrecognizable. Yet, like her, it persisted.
Just like I also persisted.
I felt my lower chin begin to tremble, and my eyes start to water.
I forced myself to blink back the tears instead of giving in to them. I couldn’t break down now, I had to get to class. My Gender Studies in the Homosexual Community was my favorite class, my teacher inspired me. I copied her look with short purple hair, bright make-up, torn fish net stockings, and facial rings. I made sure I projected a strong feminist presence. I only wish I wasn’t a white male. I was the very thing that I hated so much. The archetype of racist and masculine evil. No wonder my parents didn’t understand me. They were white, heterosexual, and Christian. They were the absolute worst!
Averting my eyes from the peeling bumper sticker, I hurried. Holding the strap to my environmentally friendly hemp backpack tighter, I skirted around the homeless baby-murdering vet sleeping in a cardboard box as I made my way down the street. He was curled in a ball, sleeping, with an American Flag folded neatly beside a small donation can. I kicked it out of spite and it skittered into a puddle. I sniffed in righteous indignation, it served him right, he fought for oil. That meant he was just another one of George Bush’s peaceful Muslim murdering savages. Weapons of Mass Destruction, I harrumphed, G. Dumb. Bush was a weapon of mass destruction to the Iraqi People. He should be executed for War Crimes against Human Decency.
A man was walking the other way, swaying with toxic masculinity while texting on his phone. He was dressed casually, in jeans and black t-shirt. His hair was cut and slicked back, with slight stubble covering his chin. He was looking down at his phone when our shoulders grazed slightly as I tried to dodge out of the way. I squealed, and he muttered an apology before glancing up at me. We locked eyes for a moment. His mouth dropped open slightly before he squinted in confusion and quickly turned to walk away. It must be my exposed man breast and nipple pasty, of course he wouldn’t get it. He looked like the typical cis-gendered male, all arrogance and cockiness. I was gender fluid, so today I chose to show solidarity with feminists. I was especially proud of my eye liner, I watched a dozen YouTube videos on how to apply it perfectly.
I sneered after him before pulling out my brand new Iphone-X. It was the latest model and cost me over a thousand dollars. I used my Student Loans to pay for it. That’s what they are for anyways, to cover necessities. It was such a shame these weren’t free from the Government, stupid greedy Capitalists. Cell Phones were a basic human right.
I pulled up the app and quickly sent out a tweet:
Men are such pigs. #metoo #Oprah4POTUS #CheetoPrez
That would get plenty of attention. I couldn’t wait to see how many of my online friends liked it. I hoped it would go viral. Maybe Ellen DeGeneres would interview me, and I could talk about how I was nearly assaulted and disrespected on the street in the broad daylight. I started day dreaming about how I would make it sound more confrontational when I told the story and what I would have said to put that creep in his place and draw attention to our cause. I needed to practice my dance moves tonight just in case. She always danced on her show.
Then my phone pinged, and I saw I had an email from one of my professors.
It was an invitation to protest the latest conservative speaker on campus. Anyone who signed the attendance sheet being passed around would get extra credit! I don’t know why they kept trying to speak, no one wanted to hear what they had to say. They just came here to cause trouble. Bunch of ignorant mouth breathers. Last time I made sure that I stood at the front of the protest, so everyone could see me. I even hit a police officer with a dildo. That showed him. But then I got a rubber bullet to the groin, and while I considered myself a female that day, it still hurt. I threw up on my pink vagina hat. It still smelled bad. But I would be there, because I persisted!
As I passed one of the dorms, I inadvertently saw the poster through the window and it hit me like an emotional pile of bricks.
The familiar red, white, and blue poster with HOPE in bold words at the bottom. Obama, gazing towards the future with his strong and fearless gaze. I thought of the clown in office, his orange skin and clownish hair swept back, and his foul mouth and disrespectful attitude towards my African-American, Transgendered, Homosexual, Mexican-Islamic family. The internment camps he was probably having built right now, to round them up and deport them. His law enforcement thugs preparing lists of innocent children to deport. His cronies stacking their gold like Scrooge McDuck while I made $7.25 an hour flipping burgers. How was I supposed to survive on that? How dare they not pay me $15, or even $20 an hour! A wage you can live on is another basic human right! I have $40,000 in student loans I must pay back! Bernie Sanders would have forgiven them!
I couldn’t hold it in anymore. I started running for the nearest Safe Space. But it was so far away! Why weren’t they everywhere?
The unfairness of it all overwhelmed me and dropping to my knees, I bawled. The hot, salty tears rolled down my face and I could feel my mascara running into my mustache.
But I felt no shame, I was a refuge of strength and dignity against the injustice of America. My safety pin protest proved that. Expressing emotion just meant I was more ‘woke’ than everyone else.
Turning my face upwards, I clenched my fists and screamed my social justice warrior rage at the sky.
The Socialist Snowflake Party of America (SSPA!) loves to vilify the rich, it’s like the ultimate boogeyman.
“Better eat your peas or the 1% will come and take them!”
“If you don’t graduate college with a degree in Gender Fluidity from Unwashed Hippy University, you’re going to wash dishes for the Top 1%!”
“The Top 1% has more than we, so we musts hates them! Hssssss…..” (In Gollum’s voice.)
Of course the leaders of SSPA are all part of the 1%. Every Liberal/Progressive/Celebrity/Media Talking Head buffoon/Race Baiting cretin who champions the notion of Income Redistribution and pushes Class Warfare is living the rich and famous lifestyle they bash.
What I mean by Income Redistribution is usually framed as taking from the rich and giving to the poor. That’s how they like to spin it, like it’s a noble Robin Hood type action. To get the support of the masses, they push Class Warfare, which is pitting different socioeconomic segments of the population against each other. Essentially turning all the low and middle classes against the supposedly ‘super’ wealthy. (Who are bad)
First off – Who are the EVIL 1%? Usually you think of billionaires and super mega millionaires. Snobs who wreck Lambo’s, fly on private airplanes to their own islands, and creepy Harvey Weinstein looking goons who marry a twenty year old for ‘love’.
Meh. Not really – The Top 1%, are people who make above $390,000 a year. That’s not a lofty goal by any means. Sure, probably more than you or I make, but not out of reach for smart/capable/driven folks who are willing to work hard, take risks, lose often, and grab life by the blueberries until they eventually prevail or die broke and penniless trying. By the way, If you’re a college kid – it also helps to not rack up $50,000 in student loans on a worthless progressive degree like Feminism or Gay Culture. (Your future will consist facial rings, pink hair, and asking me if I want fries with that.)
But 400k a year can be done. I’ve mentioned Ben Carson before, he’s my favorite example of rags to riches. Mother was a single mom, illiterate house cleaner, with a third grade education, living in the slums of Detroit. Using a public library, she pushed her son to become one of the greatest brain surgeons in history, the first to perform a neurosurgical operation on a baby in the womb, and separate brain-joined twins. Worth a cool 30 million now. (Did I mention he was black? No? That’s because it doesn’t freaking matter!)
Also, Debt/Income ratio is more important than just Income. $400k a year ain’t worth squat if you bills rack up to $350+k a year. (Kind of like those people who live in a single wide trailer but have a $50,000+ Dodge Hellcat in their parking spot. Priorities, right?) But 100k a year is pretty sweet if you’re bills are only 20k a year. Debt/Income ratio – Learn it, live it, and love it. Because even if you can’t make it to the Top 1%, you can actually live pretty well if you aren’t fiscally dumb.
Would I like to be in the Top 1%? Darn tootin’. Will I? Well let’s see, a writer typically makes about 68 cents per paperback book. Soo.. even with my day job… Probably not. Unless I start writing about sparkly romantic vampires or little orphan nerds with wizardry abilities. But I digress…
Ultimately – the concept of Class Warfare against the ‘EVIL’ Top 1% is stupid. It’s petty jealously, based on greed and envy that politicians push to get votes and power. There is nothing wrong with people making more money than you. (Income is no guarantee of happiness anyways)
Now lets look at taxes real quick and who pays how much.
Top 1% – Pay 45.7% of ALL income Taxes.
Top 20% – Pay 84% of ALL income Taxes(This includes the Top 1% above)
Bottom 80% – Pay 15% of ALL income Taxes(This includes the Bottom 60% below)
Bottom 60% – Pay 2% of ALL income Taxes.
The notion that ‘the Top 1% don’t day their fair share’ is a bunch of crap. You just saw the figures. They pay more than YOU! They practically fund half of the government and half of the welfare recipients.
But these goobers are always out there, trying to turn people against the rich. “They are OPPRESSORS of the people!” “You work HARD so they can line THEIR POCKETS with the fruits of YOUR LABOR!” “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that, someone else did!”(Obama – 2012) “You make minimum wage while the CEO makes millions!” (Well – YOU flip burgers while he runs a massive business and has stock holders/chairmen/employees to please and support. Not to mention, if he fails you won’t have a job. Soo….)
A perfect example is ‘Philanthropist’ Bernie Sanders:
“A nation will not survive morally or economically when so few have so much and so many have so little!” – Bernie Sanders
(While slamming his fist on the podium, screaming in rage, spittle flying from is mouth, to the cheers of millions of fiscal fools – Like the Clip from The Office below)
(I had to put this in – If you aren’t an Office fan, shame on you. But Dwight has a fear of public speaking and was given a speech made up of various Dictator quotes for his ‘Salesman of the Year’ acceptance speech as a prank.)
Back on subject – DOOM! We are all DOOMED because people have different amounts of STUFF!
…Say’s the Senator whose base pay starts at $174,000 plus all the expensive free perks that comes with the job. And here’s the kicker, on average he works THREE DAYS A WEEK.
Tell me more, oh Great Supreme Leader Of the Socialist Masses, about Income Inequality. You don’t even work 40 hours a week but own THREE houses.
Then we have these ‘Patriotic Millionaires’ who put together a video ad crying out against the GOP Tax Cuts, because they think they don’t deserve more of their own money. I’m gonna catalog this under the same file as ‘Dumb White People who Ask For Forgiveness For Being White’. It’s self-loathing to the Nth degree. It’s pathetic. “Ooohhh look at me, I’m a bad rich guy whose gonna put my tax cut money into the stock market and hurt poor people.” Ugh! I’m fine with you saying that, but it had better be with an evil cackle at the end of it. I’ll respect that, but this? It’s just… undignified.
I guess no one has told them that Taxes are simply a legally mandated MINIMUM. Since you guys are so socially conscious(I think the cool kids call it ‘woke’), feel free to send more in. But we all know you won’t.
But take heart folks – that video above is simply proof that anyone can make it into the Top 1%, even if you are stupid.
In case you aren’t up to speed. Congress passed a law in 1995 to move the American Embassy to the capital of Israel. Which is Jerusalem. Since then, every President since has promised on the campaign trail to move it. I suppose to cater to the Jewish/Israel Supporting Vote, then has signed a waiver every six months preventing it from being moved. Because they are afraid of ticking off the Muslim Countries and especially the Palestinians. This is Clinton, Bush, and Obama, so no single party is to blame for the gutlessness of it. Well, the Democrats had control for 2/3rds of the time, so maybe they have more blame. And Obama hated Israel(the only Democracy in the entire Middle East), and preferred to pander to the angry Muslim who hate America, so there’s that too.
Now first off, Palestine as a country doesn’t exist. It’s a group of people who say that Israel is theirs, and they live inside of Israel, and they cause angry terroristic havok constantly. They like to kill school kids, blow up cars, take hostages, hijack planes, stabbings, and suicide bombings. Oh, and let’s not forget stoning people to death. They mainly live in the West Bank and Gaza, thus – the constant conflict we keep hearing about regarding those two areas. And the Palestinians are supported by Hamas – another Terrorist Organization. They ain’t good people.
For the past 60 years, everyone wants to keep trying to broker a peace deal between the two sides. Obviously, that hasn’t worked out well and is probably impossible. Every time, Israel gives concessions(at American’s request) to the Palestinians, only to have them go on terror waves afterwards.
But no one likes the idea of forced eviction at bayonet point, even if it would solve the majority of Israel’s internal problems and just tick off it’s neighbors who hate them anyway.
Second off, moving the Embassy to Jerusalem legitimizes it’s capital of Israel. (Because the Palestinians say it’s theirs) Refusing to move the Embassy to the capital is an insult to our only solid ally in the Middle East. We have embassies in 136 countries, 135 of those, the embassy is in the Capital. Guess who the outlier is? (Not no more!)
So Trump fulfilled another Campaign Promise. He’s declared we are moving the Embassy. Now, the liberals/Anti-Trumpers/whoever are throwing a freaking hissy fit. But technically here, Trump is implementing Congressional Rule. Which is part of his job. Some of the same Democrats who are whining about this, voted for it back in 1995. And this was an overwhelming vote, Senate: 93 to 5, House: 347 to 37. AND six months ago, the Senate voted unanimously to reaffirm the 1995 Act of moving the Embassy to Jerusalem. Now we got brainless dolts like Bernie Sanders, who just voted to reaffirm the act, coming out and saying:
“There’s a reason why all past U.S. administrations have not made this move, and why leaders around the world have warned Trump against it: It would undermine the prospects for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement and severely, perhaps irreparably, damage our ability to broker it.” – Sen. Bernie Sanders
Of course he’s a Politician, and a Democrat, so par the course – he flip flops depending on whats politically useful at the time. He’s also a colossal moron who thinks Venezuela is a great example of Socialism that we should mimic. (They are eating pets right now and selling children)
Then there’s Feinstein, Good Lord, can someone vote her out of office already? She voted to reaffirm the 1995 act also.
“Recognizing Jerusalem as Israels Capital – or relocating our embassy to Jerusalem – will spark violence and embolden extremists on both sides of this debate…. Recall that the Second Intifada, which killed thousands, was sparked by Ariel Sharon’s visit to Temple Mount. This act was perceived by many Palestinians as an act of Israeli provocation and incursion on land they claimed as Palestinian…. For 50 years, Democrat and Republican Presidents alike have chosen not to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital in order to remain impartial. . – Sen. Feinstein
Perfect example of gutless people cowering before the threat of violence by extremists. Seriously. Four thousand were killed, almost 70% of them were civilians, because Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon visited a freaking holy site inside of Israel, that Muslim’s won’t allow Jews to visit. The Temple Mount is where King Solomon, first son of King David, built the first Temple.
But Muslims claim it as their holy site. Because like most things Islamic, their wrong and ridiculous.
The proof is in the fact that Judaism predates Islam. So suck on that losers. It ain’t yours.
But Bravo Trump. He put his foot down, refused to capitulate to the threat of violence for doing the right thing. That’s leadership, that’s courage, that’s America.
And his selected UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, is awesome. Like most people, when he selected her, I kind of scratched my head and figured it was a political move. Promote her from her Governorship of SC and replace her with a political ally who is more supportive.
But hot damn. She rocks. I can’t think of a braver human being, who will stand before the sucky United Nations – and all the Tyrants, Dictators, Human Rights Abusers, Socialists, Communists, and spineless cowards, and tell them to their face that America will not be ruled by a World Government un-elected by American voters who constantly berates and insults us while taking our money.
We give them 8 BILLION dollars of TAX PAYER money. There are 193 members of the UN, we pay more than 176 countries combined for the regular budget and 185 countries combined for the peacekeeping budget.
If you recall, Trump hammered them on the Campaign trail for other countries not paying their share. Only 5 of the 28 NATO countries are meeting their mandatory payments of 2% of their GDP. Without us the UN would collapse, and rightfully so.
Because it sucks. Big time.
“You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars)
For example – NINE members of the Human Rights Council are accused of violating Human Rights. Burundi, Egypt, Rwanda, Cuba, Venezuela, China, India, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Gee, does that say enough right there? HAHA! Oh I forgot, that same Human Rights Council declared ISRAEL to be the number 1 Human Rights Abuser in the entire world! LOL.
Good heavens, I guess it’s because they shoot back when Palestinians start stabbing them. And power hungry politicians hate the freedom and spirit of resistance that is embodied by self-defense.
Obviously, it’s much better to have cast systems like India with an entire segment of the population as actual ‘untouchables’, and where they average 4 people per day dying in police custody . Or like Saudia Arabia, where sex slavery/human trafficking is common place, they behead citizens for crimes like adultery or witchcraft, and allow torture confessions to show guilt. Or the UAE, who follows Sharia law, and flogs or stones people to death for adultery or homosexuality. Why continue the listing – you can see where I’m going. It’s a sham.
And the ‘Peace Keeping Missions’ they perform? Here: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/06/16/america-pay-way-too-much-for-united-nations.html
· An independent academic study assessing best and worst practices among aid agencies ranked U.N. organizations among the worst.
· Numerous reports, audits, and investigations have revealed mismanagement, fraud and corruption in procurement for U.N. peacekeeping.
· Studies and reports have identified U.N. peacekeepers as the source of the cholera outbreak that ravaged Haiti starting in 2010, leaving more than 8,000 dead and more than 600,000 seriously sickened.
· A 2014 study of eight of the nine U.N. peacekeeping operations with a mandate to protect civilians found that peacekeepers “did not report responding to 406 (80 per cent) of [the 570] incidents where civilians were attacked.”
· U.N. personnel have been accused of sexual exploitation and abuse in Bosnia, Burundi, Cambodia, Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, Kosovo, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Sudan. Recent news stories from the Central African Republic and Haiti indicate the problem is still far too common and the U.N. is more interested in concealing the issue than in confronting it
To sum it up,tThe UN sucks. There’s the background.
After Nikki Haley’s speech, the UN held their vote and it ended up something ridiculous like 128 ‘condemning’ our move, 9 supporting it, and 35 abstaining. Those who abstained include our allies like Australia, Mexico, and Canada. (Canada’s no surprise, PM Trudeau is every bit as gutless and clueless as Obama. Currently he wants to ‘rehabilite’ Islamic Jihadists. I think they are planning on play therapy.)
Thankfully, she told them to pound sand and promptly invited everyone who sided with us to an after-vote party where they celebrated American awesomeness.
And this isn’t the first time she’s stood up for America and reflected Trump’s bravado with her bravery.
When the UN adopted a resolution for us to end our economic embargo on Cuba, she responded:
“Let’s be honest about what we really see going on here. This assembly does not have the power to end the U.S. embargo. It is based in U.S. law, which only the United States Congress can change…. Each year, this Assembly’s time is wasted considering this resolution. And the United States is subjected to all manner of ridiculous claims – anything to deflect attention from the regime that is actually responsible for the suffering of the Cuban people.” – Nikki Haley
“The situation unfolding in Venezuela is more than a human tragedy. The crisis in Venezuela today poses a direct threat to international peace and security. Venezuela is an increasingly violent narco-state that threatens the region, the hemisphere, and the world…. We received pressure from regional partners not to have this meeting. This goal is not to degrade anyone. This is not to humiliate a region. This is only to lift up the region.” – Nikki Haley
On North Korea(and calling out China!):
“Through sanctions we have cut off 90 percent of North Korean trade and 30 percent of its oil. But the crude oil remains. The major supplier of that oil is China…. We are once again at a time of reckoning. North Korea’s behavior has become more intolerable…. The dictator of North Korea made a choice yesterday that brings the world closer to war, not farther from it. We have never sought war with North Korea, and still today we do not seek it. If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday. And if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed.” – Nikki Haley
The future is bright for America at the UN table, where we are no longer cowed by an apologetic President with no spine!
Rock on, good lady!
The military exists to kill people and break their things. What possible benefit does allowing Transgenders to enlist, have towards our ability to wage war? Serving is not a RIGHT. It is a privilege, and it is by necessity, highly selective. There are a myriad of reasons you can’t or shouldn’t be allowed to serve. Having a mental disorder is a pretty good one.
Civilian courts ruled yesterday that we have to allow people who think their chromosomes don’t matter and have a high rate of depression, self harm, and suicide… into the military. And then they’ll have access to millions of dollars of military equipment that spreads death and destruction on our enemies.
They actually ruled against the Military, who says they don’t want them. Because a bunch of civilians in robes know SO MUCH more about the Military than those who have spent a lifetime serving and now command it.
Oh heck, let’s just admit it. The courts have become so politicized these days, that they would overturn the ‘ban’ just to thumb their noses at Trump without caring about the ramifications of their decisions. I’ll point to the Bowe Bergdhal and Kate Steine Trials as my examples of highly politicized cases and Trumps involvement.
But let’s go on…
Transgenders have a 41% rate of suicide compared to the national average of 4.6%. But sure, let’s drop them into a job where you WILL be bullied and hazed upon entry to the fraternity. It’s part of the Spirit De Corp. If you make it through basic training or boot camp and still suck, you will be hazed even more. Relentlessly. Until you leave or fix yourself. Besides, it’s a well known fact that “Pain Retains” and “Through Pain comes Discipline”.
Even if you don’t suck, you will still be hazed. Until you ‘level up'(promoted) and get to haze others – it’s a vicious circle like that. I was never much good at it, and I liked almost all my guys.
But if you want to bring up bullying(hazing) leading to a higher rate of Suicide, you are supporting people joining a culture with a high rate of suicide already. The Military suicide rate is twice as Civilians. And Transgenders are TEN TIMES higher than Civilians. So what does that make it? Like an 82% rate? I dunno. It’s math. But frankly, you are aiding transgender suicides by supporting this instead of supporting them getting mental health help.
Then there is the highly stressful rigors of combat and pre-deployment or just regular training and field ops or plain ole home life. It’s a life full of stress, misery, divorce, midget strippers, alcohol abuse, violence, money problems, and poor personnel decision making. It’s hard enough being a rational heterosexual male in the military as it is.
You’re gonna be bored, miserable, hot, cold, wet, and pissed off. You’re gonna argue, harass, and brawl with each other. It’s going to happen. And if you don’t buck up, you’re gonna get it even worse. Because the emotionally, physically, and mentally weak need to be weeded out.
And then there is showering. I showered with 70 other guys in Boot Camp. Then another six years with sometimes less, sometimes more. I saw a lot of wieners. You get used to it. Ironically, penis size jokes are rarely told. It’s hard to lie to someone when everyone knows what your packing.
So don’t think women acting like men, and men acting like women, will somehow go unnoticed. If you’re a transgender, you’d better get used to being naked in front of the opposite sex. But you probably want ‘safe spaces’ and private toilets and showers eh? Sadly, the military will probably be FORCED into creating these. Because why spend money on bullets and body armor when we can buy extra crap for a handful of people who feel different.
And I’m going to be straight up. Transgender Sexual Assault rates are 50% in the Civilian world. You’re going to be a woman (pretending to be a man) tossed into a group of horny, alpha males, with a high libido and love for drinking, fighting, and fornicating. I don’t believe the military has a Rape Culture, but there are plenty of dirt bags in it. The military does a good job with hammering these people into Leavensworth Prison. But they are out there.
(By the way, in the Marine Corps Boot Camp we were constantly instructed on morals and values…as well as symptoms of Pregnancy. Heh.. But they didn’t want us to be a bunch of mindless baby killers using flame throwers on huts because someone said so. They wanted us to do the right thing, all the time.)
So now we’ve a mess of issues that the military is forced to address now. And this opens the door to constant complaints like, “He hazed me because I’m a woman with a penis.” When really, you probably suck and deserve it.
But yeah, sometimes it’s gonna be because your transgender. Not saying it’s right, but it’s gonna happen.
Because people who stand out, get hazed the most.
Like Kylo Ren, I bet he got hazed to no end because of his goofy looks and giant ears. But now he’s a Marine Corps hero with a Lightsaber.
In my arguments against supporting the “Transgender Revolution”, this is the example I often use:
How is anyone looking in the mirror and thinking they are a man trapped in a woman’s body any different from someone suffering from Anorexia? They look into the mirror, and think that their 5’7″ frame at 82lbs is FAT. Both of you’re perceptions of reality is distorted, and it can be helped. But it only hurts you more when we tell you, yes – you are FAT or you are the opposite gender of what your Chromosomes say. Simply because we want to be ‘inclusive’ and ‘accepting’ and don’t like hurting people with truth that may save their lives.
Ultimately, pushing for acceptance and inclusion of Transgenders into society, instead of helping them overcome their problems, is morally and biologically wrong. But fools tend to think themselves wise so they shout us down as bigots and hate mongers and what nots.
So good job. Bravo. Thanks for weakening our military with your progressive ideology of ‘acceptance’.
If I could reach through the internet and slap you, I would.
And for those of you who would like to argue, I’ll point you in this direction first.
