Odds are, “trans” means “odd”

Interesting commentary on the whole “trans” “epidemic” that got bounced from Medium.  Well, fuck that, let’s Streisand Effect it.

 

You’re Not Trans. You’re Just Weird.

Hmm. Skipping down in the article, I see:

But then, in middle school, things started to change. By 7th grade, school finally started to require some effort, and it turned out you were pretty disorganized. People kept calling you smart, but the teachers were annoyed at your humor, and frustrated that you wouldn’t or couldn’t follow the guidelines for assignments. Classmates didn’t appreciate your frank (if accurate) descriptions of their efforts. I’ll admit, we got pretty frustrated with you, too.

☑ I’m in this picture and I don’t like it.

Naw, kidding. It just was what it was.

But somehow I never for a moment wanted to be anything but a hetero male. Not because society frowned on it. Because I knew it was stupid and wrong for me to be any other way.

What the author is really trying to describe is what Sarah Hoyt calls an “Odd”. Which is what I’ve been for as long as I can remember. And what the kid being described in the article is, too.

Injecting hormones and destroying the child’s body isn’t how you deal with that. Thankfully, the author is on top of that, too.

Status update

People need to stop being afraid, throw off the masks, stop worrying about congregating, and basically tell the government to go fuck itself with a grenade launcher.

Give me liberty, or you can die for it.

Just as Sleepy Joe Biden will never be my president, the incoming Congress will never be my Congress.

It’s nothing but congresscritters all the way down, with a few notable exceptions like Paul, Cruz and Hawley — but they aren’t enough to stem the tide.

Conservatives — real conservatives, the kind who consider themselves libertarians but not necessarily Libertarians — need to dig in for the duration. It’s going to be a real fight, and we might have to resort to the Fourth Box before it’s over.

G-d help us if it comes to that. We already had a taste of it from 1861-1865, and the 600K casualties we suffered in that contretemps will pale in the wake of any similar upcoming conflict. Yet, as Abraham Lincoln told us,

The fiery trial through which we pass, will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation. We say we are for the Union. The world will not forget that we say this. We know how to save the Union. The world knows we do know how to save it. We — even we here — hold the power, and bear the responsibility. In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free — honorable alike in what we give, and what we preserve. We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth.

I don’t want my grandchildren growing up under Chinese hegemony. I hereby pledge my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor to doing everything I can to prevent that.

Fuck China. China is asshole. And so are the traitor Democrats.

Elon Musk is a hero.

How To End The Covid-19 Threat, Right Now

Well **** you Fauci, Birx, Lightfoot, Cuomo and the rest.  You just got ****ed up the ass by Elon Musk who was willing to drop a grand for the purpose of disproving your bull**** — with irrefutable results displayed to the public — and your little scam that destroyed income and lives has been blown to bits.

Seems legit.  You may want to read the whole thing…but I recommend having a nice whiskey available while you do, because this is going to raise your blood pressure.  A further sample:

Elon Musk conclusively proved that the test is nothing more than a coin toss that has no relationship to the actual state of a person being tested. It is purely a scare-mongering tool to return big numbers and thus drive more $100 million day collections of money by the testing companies for a literal worthless test that is not diagnostic of anything.

In any reasonable legal environment such a result would lead to the instant revocation of authorization by the FDA for all such testing as Elon has now proved that said testing is literally worthless.  It doesn’t have an error band it is nothing more than a criminal racket exactly as would be some preacher collecting money in exchange for prayers that, he says, will make someone’s “Gay” go away.

Not that we didn’t pretty much all suspect this.  Well, those of us with any fucking brains, that is.  Not prog Demo Biden voters who believe everything Fauci says as if it were the Pope speaking ex cathedra from his belly button.

Well, like I said, read the whole thing.

There is no cause to split the country.

I’ve seen a lot of red state folks, lately, talking about how maybe it’s time to simply let the blue states go their own way.

I disagree.  I don’t see any call for that at all.  Here is the current House of Representatives electoral map as posted at Real Clear Politics, right now (1053, 11/11/2020):

Most of the land mass is red.  Doesn’t mean most of the population is, but if you cut out those blue areas and let them become their own country (or probably “countries”), where do they get their food?  Where is their industry?  How do the interior blue areas get goods shipped to them?  (By air?  Too expensive in the long run.)

Not even California is fully blue.  Most of the area away from the coast is red.  And that’s where most of the food comes from.  Not to mention the water.

And look at most of the two land borders.  Mostly red.

There’s a map Brad Torgeson (the science fiction writer) likes to point out regarding the 2016 election.  He calls it the “Clinton Archipelago.”  I believe it’s based on the county-level returns, not for the House of Representatives, but no matter:

I say “no matter”, because it looks pretty much the same, doesn’t it?

Then there’s TrumpLand (again, based on 2016 numbers), with all the food, industry, and resources, and no areas cut off from other areas:

So, really, you’re talking about something that’s pretty impractical when you talk about dividing up the country between the blues and the reds.

Like it or not, we’re all Americans, and we’re going to have to (re-)learn how to live together — even if that means a bunch of people are going to have to suddenly find out what a civil war is really like.  I mean, I live in a blue city with a blue wife, but if the blue cities suddenly get cut off, we’re not so far from a red county that we couldn’t quickly relocate.  And we would.

But I don’t want to live in Friday’s world.  And neither should you.

To go along with “Liars figure”

The 2020 Election:  Fuckery Is Afoot

I am more offended by how ham fisted, clumsy, and audacious the fraud to elect him is than the idea of Joe Biden being president. I think Joe Biden is a corrupt idiot, however, I think America would survive him like we’ve survived previous idiot administrations. However, what is potentially fatal for America is half the populace believing that their elections are hopelessly rigged and they’re eternally fucked. And now, however this shakes out in court, that’s exactly what half the country is going to think.

People are pissed off, and rightfully so.

Kindly go and read the whole thing.  Damn it.

Six weeks out and falling fast

When your governor is too stupid to realize why his polling numbers are dropping like a stone, only six weeks out from the election:

of course he extends the useless, illegal, and unconstitutional mask mandate once again.  (Chart from Wikipedia.)

I keep hearing that outside of Indianapolis, stores are removing the directional arrows, opening closed entrances, and aren’t stopping people without masks from entering. Sooner or later, everyone in Indianapolis will be ignoring the governor, too. And looking to vote for one of his two opponents.

I will not cast a vote for this clown again. He will not be missed. And who knows, we might end up with a Libertarian governor. Rainwater is trending up faster than Myers is. I think we’ve got ourselves a real three-way contest, for once, and all because our sitting governor is a statist moron.

You would think the state GOP would have warned him off doing this.  But they’re morons, too.

This fucking country has gone fucking bugnuts.

Exhibit A:

On Wednesday, Chicago-based Quaker Foods announced it would eliminate the Aunt Jemima brand of pancake mix and syrup in response to civil unrest and protests calling for racial equity across America sparked by the killing of George Floyd, a black man who died with his neck under the knee of a white Minnesota police officer.

Who the fuck actually becomes a racist because they eat Aunt Jemima pancakes with Aunt Jemima syrup on them?

Exhibit B:

B&G Foods, the maker of Cream of Wheat, announced Thursday that it would be reviewing the packaging of the longtime breakfast brand, the latest food company to do so after Quaker announced earlier in the week that it was retiring its Aunt Jemima logo because of its racist origins.

Again, who was prompted to become a racist because Cream of Wheat has a smiling black chef on the box?

I was going to add Exhibit C, the contretemps over Rice Crispies/Cocoa Puffs, but that got started by some idiot BLM activist who used to be a UK MP before she lost her seat over lying about a speeding ticket (see at bottom of the article), so technically not “this country”:

Onsanya was expelled from the Labour Party and lost her seat in 2019 after lying about a speeding ticket. She was jailed for the offence for three months.

Which is all you really need to know about that.

We’re down to complaints about how black people are portrayed (or not portrayed) on breakfast products.

Time to start treating these things with the derision they deserve.

Thoughts and prayers

I have not listened to Rush Limbaugh for literally years, ever since I got tired of the constant “inline” ad breaks and frankly what I considered to be an alarming trend in his love of his own voice resulting in fewer and fewer minutes of caller input.  And in general, three hours of political yak yak in the middle of the day during the Obama misAdministration didn’t sit well on my stomach, most days.  Bottom line, the signal to noise ratio had dropped considerably, and I had better things to do.  (Maybe this has changed but it’s too late for me to go back to find out.)

So despite the fact that I know he’s long been a connoisseur of fine cigars, it nevertheless came as a shock to hear that he had announced his diagnosis of advanced lung cancer.

Naturally, this announcement brought out the usual gleeful left-wing suspects talking about, for instance, what a great world it would be without Rush Limbaugh in it, and so forth.  But at least one person on the left took the high road, instead:

Now, I don’t care for her politics, but damn, the lady is a class act. If the rest of the Democrats had half her grace and honesty, this primary season might be bearable. They could (and will) do a lot worse than nominate Ms. Gabbard.

All the best to Rush. Cancer is apolitical and indiscriminate. We should support its sufferers ditto.

The next pandemic

We get so up in arms about the stupidity of anti-vaxxers that sometimes we overlook the fact that the next pandemic might not have anything to do with anti-vaxxers at all.  H7N9 flu virus may be next on the agenda. China is refusing to provide samples to the CDC, in violation of WHO protocols.  Shades of SARS in 2002.

This might help explain why doctors are advising that children receive this year’s flu vaccine as soon as it’s available.  (H/T:  Instapundit.)  Even though the current vaccine isn’t tailored for H7N9, it still might provide some limited immunity.

Anyway, John Ringo, call your office:

In a town called Jungbao, a lot of people suddenly got sick. Really, really incredibly sick. Dying sick. There’s all sorts of estimates. Jungbao is about the only place that people are starting to open up the mass graves to get a count. And what exactly happened might never be known. Currently, the best estimates I’ve found go like this:

A lot of people got sick. The local medical boss, who was a WHO reporter, contacted Beijing with his estimate that H5N1 had become human to human transmissible and had, possibly, become more lethal. He wanted to report it to the WHO. He was told to hold the fuck on.

Just sayin’.  True, it’s probably more that China is in a snit over Trump tariffs than anything else at this point…but in the world of viral pandemics, things could go pear-shaped in a hurry, and a snit over economic inconvenience is no reason for China to be withholding flu samples from analysis.  Virus don’t care if you’re Chinese or American, when all is said and done.

This is, for what it’s worth, just another pressing reason for humans to get the fuck off this rock and out, at minimum, into the rest of the solar system.

UPDATE:  Perhaps I wrote too soon.  “Emirates plane carrying sick passengers lands at JFK airport, officials say.”  The flight originated in Dubai.  “The [Emirates] spokesman also initially tweeted that the flight from Dubai stopped in Mecca, where there’s a flu outbreak. He later clarified that some of the passengers came from Mecca and the flight was a direct one from Dubai to New York City.”

Great.
