  • Chicken Little

    The Economist’s series on trans issues (I think they’re in week two of a two-week series) has included some interesting stuff. Not surprisingly, the weakest stuff comes from the camp trying to push the whole trans agenda.

    The author of the piece linked to above highlights the fact that the vitriol directed at those who don’t fully accept the trans weirdos’ every outlandish claim is aimed at women only. He (the author) has not received any threats of violence while his female peers have. Duh.

    I feel like the world has fallen down a rabbit hole. Up is down. Left is right — like the brocialists mentioned in the article, the lefty men who bandy about their claims of being feminists as if they were swinging their dicks while happily denying women any right to define what womanhood actually is…

    I can’t believe I find myself agreeing (emphatically) with anything Milo Yianiwhatshisnuts says, but when it comes to seeing trans morons for what they really are, he actually nails it.

    Males might accept fully transitioned transsexuals as partners, but they will not accept trans-identified males as partners because the latter have been socialized as males and will not engage in the domestic, emotional, sexual, and other duties females have been trained to do. Gay male couples in my experience have plenty of trouble getting along neither man has been trained to acquiesce); I don’t think anyone could get along with these narcissistic, totally entitled TIMs.
