We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
This in via Gwynnie: The Penn Gazette, the Univ. of Pennsylvania’s alumni magazine, has the following bit:
According to Phil Nichols, associate professor of legal studies and the faculty director of College Houses and Academic Services [at the University of Pennsylvania], the new guidelines for accommodating “mixed-gender,” or “gender-neutral” housing have been under consideration for a couple of years: “we want to make some progress toward effectuating change in [Penn’s] non-discrimination policy, which includes gender identification and would encompass transgender students.” Nichols added, “I’m sure there are students at Penn who are transgender who don’t necessarily feel comfortable with everything being classified [as male or female]. If we can make them feel more comfortable, that’s another wonderful goal the college houses can accomplish.”
Gwynnie is afraid that the reason that there are so many transgendered people seeking transgender housing is the fact that they have been utterly emasculated by militant feminism. The new “metrosexual” male is only interested in feminist-approved pursuits (or else he won’t ‘get any tonight’). Soon, she says, football viewership will collapse; at present, the loser is hunting and wild game management and preservation. See News Day Story
