From the WP: What I Wish I’d Known When I was 19

A very thoughtful op-ed written by a person who transitioned when s/he was 19 years old & now wishes s/he had waited. A must-read for all the liberals who insist that children are OK to be indoctrinated with transgender ideology in grade school & puberty blockers & A-OK & nobody is ever harmed by any of this BS.

A Childhood is not Reversible

A Great post from Transgender Trend, refuting the common trope that transing children is easily “reversible” (I’ve noticed that this is often put forth by people who don’t have children).

Children believe what they are told & what they see. What we experience in our childhood will affect us for the rest of our lives.

This is why the transing of children is the front line of the trans “war” right now.

No parent wants to think that they are abusing their child but they are definitely fucking up their child’s life & there’s no argument with that. They’re just doing it in a different way than parents did in the past.

Pronouns are Rohypnol

I was gang raped by four guys after Rohypnol was put into my drink & was only saved by this dude, who took on all four of them with a baseball bat & got me out of there. He then nursed me all night as I cried & puked & tried to deal with what had happened to me … & what could have happened. I believe this man saved my life. That was sixteen years ago. I wonder what happened to him.

So when I saw this article, written by Barra Kerr, about how pronouns are Rohypnol, I had to read it. & I agree, I totally agree. Too many people (mostly men but many women) have insisted that it’s only “polite” to call people by their preferred pronouns & even in elementary schools now, they are asking children what their “preferred” pronouns are … like a child has or even should have any notion of gender stupidity.

It isn’t about being polite. There are no good manners about this kind of bullshit. It’s about reimagining culture so that women & girls are not safe at all … much less safe than we already are.

Once again, a man claims to be the “first woman” to accomplish something fab

I haven’t watched Jeopardy in years. I used to watch in in the mornings, with my grandparents, when Art Fleming was the host. I watched it for many years … I loved Alex Trebek … & I love those kinds of answer & question game shows. But I haven’t watched in several years, honestly. I’m usually writing in the evenings.

I’m not surprised that everyone in MSM is on the woke train & the trans train. But it’s really getting old. AT LEAST say it’s the first transwoman to win a million dollars. When a REAL woman (one with XX chromosomes) wins a million dollars, then she’ll be the FIRST WOMAN to win a million dollars.

TELL THE FUCKING TRUTH ALREADY.

The WP says that “Democracy dies in darkness” … well, not only democracy dies. The truth dies. Tell the truth!

SO FUCKING WRONG

I used to want to live in Canada. I live in Buffalo, NY, & Canada is right across the Niagara River from me. I have relatives on both sides of my family who are Canadian. I have spent so much time in Canada that I *feel* like I am Canadian but of course, I am NOT Canadian, I am a citizen of the United States & my *feelings* have no true reality … because feelings come & go. That’s the reality of *feelings*. They’re like the weather.

I was born in Buffalo, NY, & I have no Canadian nationality. I do know plenty of people with dual nationality but I am not one of these people, as much as I wish I was. I am only a citizen of the United States, for better or worse. Nowadays, it’s for worse … but that’s another subject.

But the way things are going in Canada right now … I guess I’ll stay here in the US. At my age & with my financial status, I couldn’t immigrate to Canada anyway. & let’s face it … I’m a Buffalo girl.

Anyway, I couldn’t believe when I read this today … A MAN was speaking for the murdered women at the École Polytechnique, which happened in 1989. OH … he *identifies* as a women … he *feels* like a woman … so I guess that makes it OK. BUT IT DOESN’T …

THEY COULDN’T HAVE FOUND A REAL WOMAN TO SPEAK ON THE BEHALF OF THESE MASSACRED WOMEN? REALLY?

Coming soon to Canada … & maybe to the US?

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.

Another reason we are the United States of Stupid

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.

Wow! FAIR called this one!

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.

Meghan Murphy does it again

Her newest opinion piece, posted yesterday at Feminist Current, says it quite succinctly: only women get pregnant & only women need abortions. & if you don’t know what a woman is, you’re totally lost. In today’s world, with the total Orwellian breakdown of language, it seems that not even dictionaries have a clue what women are anymore.

Please don’t argue about the “evolution” of language. Every language, since the beginning of time, had precise words for men & women … & they still do. Most languages are gendered … there are masculine words, feminine words, & neutral words & they all have their precise case endings. This can be confusing for the native English speaker, but it’s really easy once you have it down. I prefer that system to English language system. But of course … if you only took two years of basic Spanish back in high school & you’ve forgotten everything you ever learned, then I suppose you won’t know what I’m talking about. I took four years of Latin & then six years of German. I can read French & Spanish with the aid of a dictionary. & I was learning Russian before my teacher died last year.

But now … here in the United States, Canada & Great Britain, English language is being so horribly deconstructed that that singular “you” is being replaced with the plural “they”. Because it’s “nonbinary” or some bullshit reason like that.

Anyway, I’m getting off the point. Here’s the link to Meghan’s great op-ed ~~~~> https://www.feministcurrent.com/2021/10/05/you-cant-support-abortion-rights-if-you-dont-know-what-a-woman-is/
