Here's a portion of a recent post though.
So, some claimed 34% of Americans already have to bow to the will of a "self-identified" minority so small it is statistically irrelevant. There is nothing even remotely good about that, IMO. I've refrained from commenting on these threads but I've read enough. I didn't want to offend anyone but you know what, who gives a f.ck about offending these people? They obviously have zero respect for the rest of society so the feeling is mutual. What kind of nerve does someone have who gets their dick cut off, takes hormones and has tits installed to tell me something is wrong with me because I think that is just insane?I don't think he knew that one of "these people" was posting on that thread. So I called him out on it.
Nobody has lied to me and nobody has duped me. I would say that it was quite the opposite. Somehow supposedly 1/3 of the American people have been duped into tacit approval of people's messed up, mentally disturbed sex-fetishes.
The tits came naturally, and I didn't have a "dick" to cut off (not that that's done anyway...). But I'm one of "these people".As for the title of this post? It's from an old joke, with many variants. Here's one:
May I refer you to the DC University threads on the subject? Please read Transsexuality and Intersex and then Transsexuality Q&A
Then please get back to me, and we can discuss this rationally. By all means give any evidence you have that contradicts what I've written.
You have accused me of having no respect for society, and even said that's obvious. Well if so, proving that should be easy for you, and I invite you to try.
You've also said that you think gender reassignment is insane. Here the onus is on me to prove otherwise, as there's an excellent prima facie case that you're right. Hence the DC University threads.
One more thing. Yes, I do take what you've said personally.
If, after reviewing the evidence I've given, you still think that I am, and I quote, some one who is "messed up" with a "mentally disturbed sex-fetish" and with "zero respect for the rest of society " then I invite you to argue your case, and no apology would be appropriate for an honestly-held opinion with a rational basis, no matter how much I might disagree with it.
Just don't hide behind "I have no wish to give offense but..." and have the guts to say it to my face, rather than to a group not present here to defend themselves against your insults. I won't call you an ignorant and irrational bigot until you've proven that's what you are - I doubt that you're either. All I have now is evidence for a pardonable lack of knowledge on your part, a strongly held opinion based on a very limited grasp of the facts, and thinking that you could hide behind anonymity and not be confronted by one of "those people" you have no respect for to force you to justify your assertions about them. Well, I'm calling you out on it.
There's a lot in those threads, so I don't expect an answer soon. I do expect either a rational argument justifying your personal attack on me, or an apology. If I get neither, I won't let the matter drop, and will take it up with the moderators. Is a week long enough, or would you like more time? It doesn't have to be an ironclad justification, just a rational one.
Boss: Johnson, we are giving you a promotion but you have to move to Montreal.I believe that the answer, the antidote, to false, misleading or hateful "free speech" is not censorship, but more "free speech". I also agree with Woodrow Wilson -
Johnson: Montreal! "Nothing comes from there except hookers and hockey players!"
Boss: Listen pal, my wife comes from there!
Johnson, without missing a beat replies, "No kidding! What position does she play?"
I have always been among those who believed that the greatest freedom of speech was the greatest safety, because if a man is a fool the best thing to do is to encourage him to advertise the fact by speaking.I need no encouragement of course. Er, wait, that didn't turn out right....
When passions are high, and matters are worth getting passionate about, sometimes a little humour can provide the social lubricant needed to ensure we treat others with the respect they deserve. And sometimes it just shows to anyone monitoring the debate just exactly what a humourless, ignorant and bigoted anal sphinctre one of the sides is. A win either way.
