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.

The lesbian couple story exposes the gay activists real agenda. They enjoy their anger and ability to accuse everyone else of being homophobic. It is more important to them than their gayness or their happiness. They are mean little people who live to make pothers suffer for what they think.
If you're a man and a woman doin' what comes naturally, you are 'straight' or that word has no meaning at all in that context. You might be able to argue the biological female is bisexual but she's certainly not lesbian in the ordinary definition of the word. Either that or you're admitting that trans-genders are something different from biological genders which is another no-go as far as the alphabet-sexuality crowd is concerned.
They want the rest of us to join in their delusions, and get really really upset when we refuse to do it.
I'm afraid you have no place in our brave new world if you can't accept that men can be lesbians and lesbians can be women who enjoy having sex with men and that words can mean whatever we say they mean. You're probably going to be confused about who "we" is and get to thinking that maybe you and I are "we". You and I are never "we", "we" is always them.
"We" is always them.
You hit it right on the nail.
There were 752 acid attacks in 2018. Why are we just hearing about this? The reason is that the MSM doesn't want to publish this. If 2 or 3 people had been shot by the same shooter it would be wall to wall coverage for weeks. But 752 acid attacks; meh! The reason they won't cover it is simply that the attackers are all recent immigrants, most from Arab countries and a few from Africa. Gotta love that forced diversity.
I get it. We need female police officers because male police officers cannot arrest and search female criminals. I also get that 99% of women will not be as physically strong as 99% of men so that women police simply cannot do the physical things that male police are often called upon to do. It becomes problematic though when you insist on making believe that female officers can physically be equal to the men. Why not simply acknowledge that they need female police and they will necessarily be enrolled using a different standard.
Why not...they have lowered the standards for determining what is a women so why not the rest of the standards. Hell, they destroyed the standards for what is life decades ago and still double down on that stupid decision.
It seems to me that the Eco Warriors have become a weird sort of reverse Cassandras: destined to be always believed but never right.
Reverse Cassandras. Great concept. I am stealing it. If you stole it from someone previously, let him or her know it's gaining popularity. It fits so many other things as well.
The Brits have a phrase for it, usually applied to younger, less seasoned officers or managers:
"Often wrong, but never uncertain"
The government has always had lower standards for women so they can meet their diversity requirements. That's why the male fire fighters derisively call the female firefighters fire watchers.
"Lesbian couple share their dilemma after one transitions to a man, leaving people assuming they are a straight couple when they are proudly gay"
But. But. But . . . they are straight now. According to the orthodoxy, if you transition you are now the sex and gender you transitioned to. So that woman is now a man. They are now a cis-het couple. They are ex-gay.
Apostasy among Young Christian Leaders:
You don't really need to stray from the source to find this addressed:
Matt 13:3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.
On the police standards article: this will kill people. I saw a video from Sweden I believe where 3 female officers were trying to arrest a male drunk on the street. He just swatted them away like flies. 3. Only when a male officer arrived could they arrest him. On TV the female cops are able to handle criminals, but not in real life. Same problem with firemen. Female firemen are not able to handle a fire hose or carry someone out of a building.
