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.

Thee are so many links to choose from that make me want to scream. So glad my children are grown so they don't have to face the absurdity and filth described in the articles. Unfortunately our grandkids are facing the mental imbalance of our country today. Trying to change our culture by changing definitions and morals is difficult to take in old age. I know, that many with the new ideas can't wait for those of us who are old to be firmly planted in the ground. Well see how you like your new world with the absurdities you are putting forward when you your utopia hits you in the face. Extreme crime is just an example that you will have to face.
"No, the female impersonators reading stories to children aren’t ‘groomers.’ They’re just needy gay men desperate for validation from straight society."
And what better reason, than to have them do this in a sexually-themed, highly graphic way, in front of children as their audience? Stay away from my kids, pervert. You are far less important than they are.
No there are more than two sexes and yes the drag queens are groomers. What has happened is wokeness which is just another name for fear of being called a bigot, has allowed and encouraged the craziest among us to speak out and insist that their form of craziness dominate the thoughts of everyone. The "normal" people have to grow a pair and stop bowing down to the alter of neo racist/heterophobia.
All lives matter and saying "black lives matter is racist and beating up anyone who doesn't agree with your racist slogan is a hate crime. Just as firing people who speak truth to power is illegal and I hope the colleges and governments get sued.
They can have as many genders as they want.
But there are still only two sexes.
My legislature in Tennessee has thankfully banned public drag shows, but that shouldn't even be necessary. We already have laws against indecent exposure. We already have elections for school boards. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing."

The statute language bars "male or female impersonators who provide entertainment that appeals to a prurient interest". Performances of Mrs. Doubtfire or Mulan would presumably still be allowable, but the language is vague enough as to chill free expression.
Quibble-DickZ have made it quite clear that they are pro-grooming.
It figures that you can’t make the distinction between fiction and grooming reality. Keep bringing in the straw and pretty soon you’ll have a man.
B. Hammer: It figures that you can’t make the distinction between fiction and grooming reality.
As the statute refers to entertainment, performances are directly relevant. As Frank noted, there were already laws against indecent exposure and for the protection of minors from obscene content.
In the 2020 election there were 133 million registered voters but 159 million votes were cast and Biden got a record number of votes, never mind that he hid in his basement. And we still call anyone who questions the math election deniers. Since Biden took office almost everything he has done has favored China and non-citizens and harmed America and it's citizens. So who do you think got Biden elected and who do you think is pulling his strings?
Anon: In the 2020 election there were 133 million registered voters but 159 million votes were cast and Biden got a record number of votes, never mind that he hid in his basement.
There are more than 200 million registered voters in the United States.
Believe Anon was referring to legal voters in 2020 but Quibble-DickZ gotta quibble.
Government still bowing down to BLM. That payout reads like something out of a George Orwell novel. Now the business that were destroyed by the looting law breakers get to pay for the damages out of their own pockets. They also must pay - through their taxes - the salaries of the looters. Wow, isn’t America great. Lefty crime really pays. America, the only country in the history of civilization that payed for its self destruction. Heck, we’ll even borrow trillions of dollars to destroy ourselves.
The city of Portland Oregon has lost 2600 small businesses mostly from the city center area. Why would you stay?
The Long March to burn it all down better won't be voted on as part of muh democracy.
Sadly a few eggs will have to get broken on the road to the glorious egalitarian everyone is equal and the same workers utopia.
The goes great with fweedom fwies Jonestown Democracy doesn't work unless we all take a big gulp.
Finally, the ones that we have been waiting for from the faculty lounge, the enlightened ones, the Ubermensch!
