The banning of gender-critical feminism. Calling anything that isn’t pro-trans-ideology “hate speech” … because OMG if you hurt their precious feelings, it’s so HATEFUL!!!! It’s VIOLENCE!
If these people think that telling the truth is VIOLENCE, they obviously have never taken a beating. Which I have. More than once. At the hands of a man. & I will be in physical pain the rest of my life because of this. Don’t tell me that WORDS ARE VIOLENCE. Because they aren’t.
Take your precious hurt feelings & grow the fuck up already.
These are really dangerous times we women … BIOLOGICAL WOMEN … are living in.

As a survivor of cervical cancer, I find this really infuriating.
As reported by Angus Chen in STAT:
“A decade ago, a London cancer prevention researcher predicted that the United Kingdom’s national HPV vaccination campaign would take more than 15 years to prevent a majority of cervical cancers. So when he analyzed the data this year, he was stunned to find that the vaccine may already have nearly eliminated cervical cancer in the U.K. among young women.
“If this is right,” Peter Sasieni of King’s College London said of his findings, cervical cancers “could be reduced to about 50 – just 50 cancers in the whole of the U.K. for women under 30. It’s really quite exciting to see that day come – excitement and just joy.”
That joy was tempered with envy in the United States, where some of Sasieni’s peers lamented that the HPV vaccination rate for teenage girls lags far behind — about 59% in the U.S. vs. more than 85% in the U.K. The analysis, published last week in the Lancet, suggests the U.K. has notched a major public health victory against cancer through vaccinating the vast majority of young women against HPV, said Allison Kempe, a pediatrics professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine who did not work on the study.”

I am too old to have gotten this vaccination. I was diagnosed with cancer of the cervix many years before anyone ever heard about a vaccination. Coming from a strict Roman Catholic family, I doubt I would have been allowed to be given the vaccination anyway … I would have had to waited until I was eighteen & out of the house. But at least, I would have been saved going through cancer treatments. This summer, I had to have biopsies again. & I’ve been in remission for over twenty years. Luckily, the nodes were benign but you never know.
We talk of the separation of church & state in America but that’s a myth. People are so hung up on their “religious rights” that their sense of religious identity trumps everything else, including common sense.
I would love to live in a country where people … even religious people … think logically.
The local new media in Buffalo was TOTALLY against India Walton’s mayoral campaign FROM THE START.
I almost watch any of the local news broadcasts … maybe to catch the weather report, but even that’s barely accurate & it’s usually a commercial for one of the “events” going on around town … I just want to know what’s going to happen today! Not if it’s a good day to go spend money for some corporate sponsor!
As for the Buffalo News, I lost all respect for that newspaper YEARS ago. The only reason I get a print copy delivered to my doorstep is because so I have something to wrap the cat poop & urine clumps in … it’s perfect for that. Once in a while, I might clip a poem that a friend wrote & put it on my fridge. I might do the crossword puzzles if I have a spare moment.
I also cut out obituaries of friends & save those … in the past few years, I’ve done that WAY too many times.
But it was great to read this in a national internet ezine.
In the sixteen years that Byron Brown has been mayor of Buffalo, this town has gone from bad to worse. It’s popular to blame Buffalo’s current woes on the pandemic, but most of its problems are from long before the pandemic. The trouble with Buffalo is that it was always a blue-collar town that loved to party & now that the heavy industry is gone, there’s no money left for partying …. but the attitude is still, PARTY ON! Nobody in charge seems to notice that you can’t have a party without money to finance it. & you can’t have a healthy city without a healthy workforce to support it … without jobs, without affordable housing, without infrastructure … forget about it.
Yeah, there’s been “great” improvements but do we really need another hotel? Another office building? Another bunch of luxury housing units with rents well over 2K? Another entertainment complex?
India Walton had ideas for EVERYONE at EVERY economic level. She wasn’t out just for the corporate donors, the rich people of Buffalo, the rich neighborhoods. She was one of US.
