Creepy. Whatever is happening in the neovagina is not what is happening during menses. I guess I’ve never asked men what men think of women’s periods. I’m curious now given this TiM describes menstruation as a mystical and special thing (but with obstacles). Normally, I think women consider menstruation as a burden or an irritation? Personally I see menstruation as another part of who I am. Not that it’s a burden or an annoyance, but a fact of my life.

I think you’re overreacting or trying to mind read Carlson’s intentions? I generally don’t like Tucker Carlson. He does fight back on the Woke issue, so we’re aligned in that sense. He’s not my “ally” and I don’t use the language of war.

I don’t trust anyone on the corporate media. I think you might have bought the narrative that Carlson is a white supremacist? Do you know this of your own personal knowledge and research of the facts?

I’m not scared of some Tucker Carlson segment. We can share in common our resistance of trans. No one needs to be a loyal fan of Carlson.

It's a distraction from the mass surveillance isn't it? As the govt. strips us of our liberties, maybe they think fewer people will notice if they're too bogged down in trans madness.

Regardless, we won't get information on mass surveillance or the military industrial complex on the mainstream media. If that is your jam, I recommend the GrayZone. The GrayZone does great work.

I also don't think the Culture Wars are a distraction anymore. I think the Culture Wars were certainly a distraction before, but at this point, we have useful idiot soldiers mindlessly destroying everything.

"Has anyone called Harry (Mermaid supporter!) and Meghan (Mermaid!) transphobic yet for assuming their new baby is female before she’s announced her pronouns?" by BEB in GenderCritical

[–]Rationalmind 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Diana dove right in and was a workhorse, who had some remarkable achievements, such as changing the public's attitude towards people with AIDs. She saved lives and exuded glamor, humor and charm while doing it. Kate seems limp and lazy in contrast.

Is there a job expectation that Kate do this? I know Kate does have a charity focusing on children and women. I tend to think it's not fair to hold Kate to Diana's standard (I am indifferent about Diana) and also Diana can immediately jump in when she's been born into the same aristocratic world. Kate, while bourgeoise, was not born and bred aristocracy.

I think she does love William in her own way, but if he'd been an accountant she wouldn't have looked at him. William seems petulant and arrogant, so she probably doesn't have an easy life with him.

Personally, I think that William and Kate have a good marriage and seem to love each other. I don't consider William to be petulant nor arrogant but tend to ascribe those traits to Harry. Because this is subjective, it is a matter of interpretation.

I largely do not care about the interpersonal drama of the royals but because I'm American, I have disdain for Meghan and her behavior when it badly reflects on Americans.

Interesting. I don’t know much about Kate’s parents. I don’t think Kate is all that conniving, and I wouldn’t call her useless. I definitely wouldn’t prefer Meghan’s Californian sjw stereotype. I don’t want the shallow, self-absorbed, attention seeking superficial personality. Maybe the Middleton’s wanted the title to anoint their bourgeois status, but I don’t think Diana loved Charles either. I think there will always be a fatal flaw when looking at a woman who married royal because of jealously. I personally am not jealous and don’t want to be royal and think Kate performs her job well. I like that Kate keeps quiet, is classy and knows how to perform— that’s the job and she performs to expectations. Meghan is off script and disrespectful. I don’t give Meghan deference because of it.

I like Kate, she’s a commoner, fits in, and is classy. No commoner who marries a royal did not want that or pine for that. Whether Kate had an image of William at 13 or Meghan stalked famous British people to marry them, it doesn’t matter to me.

I don’t believe her on the suicide bit. She wants attention. That’s what I know from my personal knowledge. Your situation is not the same and mine may not be either.

In a Senate compromise, Samuels was appointed for a 6 mos term, but I think she can extend that term for an additional 6 months. I won’t get into the details of how that extension works, but consider her there for a year.

The president is the one who appoints the head of agencies. The agencies are considered a part of the executive branch. Biden's move is not aytypical. If the vice chair is a pro-trans lobbyist, then there is a problem. The people within the agencies are usually non-partisan and care about the agency.

Eh, this was one of my first thoughts, too, but the EEOC is ultra-liberal and may even sweep these types of legitimate complaints under the rug using "administrative discretion" (that they don't have).

Can't know until someone tries. I don't think the EEOC is all that biased because the law itself is not biased. They don't really have administrative discretion unless you mean whether to prosecute or not. They'll investigate and warn at least. But hostile workplace lawsuits from private attorneys would work too.

I don’t understand how these people think the dating pool will be larger if they sex transition. Common sense, when applied, would mean that this would make your dating pool smaller.

Saw on Twitter: “My brother pulled my three-year-old nephew from *daycare* after my nephew told me he could choose to be a boy or a girl.

I don't know about that. It's not professional or responsible of a daycare teacher or worker to talk to kids or toddlers about a medical transition to the opposite sex. I agree on the part of the parents and that you can't protect your kids from everything, but that doesn't mean people in certain roles should not be the gatekeepers. They are the gatekeepers and their sole job is to protect children. Telling unproven nonesense to children is irresponsible.

You simply can't change your gender. You will always be a girl or boy that got a sex change.

Agree. This is almost like modern Cartesian dualism, which is stupid because the mind and body are one. I don't understand why people's heads feel divorced from their body and visa versa. Maybe I'm lucky to have never had this problem. We are many things that makeup the one, single person who we are. People need to recognize that or they will always be running away, searching for a holy grail, or wishing for something external that probably will not manifest to bring them validation. People need to learn acceptance of their body and then focus on growing their mind and becoming better people.

It makes them look like wannabes. Being a man trapped in a woman's body makes you look like a loser.

Totally. It's performative and based on stereotypes. It makes me cringe. If people want to pretend and act that they are something else, that's a sign of someone insecure. You don't want to play pretend if you are happy and comfortable with who you are as a person. I wish people would get comfortable in their own skin, but I guess it's easier nowadays to look for an escape. It's really sad if you think about it.

Here's better advice (not legal advice and adopt as pertinent): Yep, you can ask your employee to remove his pronouns from his email signature if this involves a private company and not a public institution. Crafting a signature policy standard and adding this to the employee handbook where employees sign off on the changes to that handbook would be a good idea to prevent this from happening in the future.

Are you talking about gcwomen? I think it's hard because there are so few of us and we also have responsibilities in our lives. There should be a lot more women on the left pushing back against this ideology, but I have no idea how to even start to unbrainwash the women on the left. The women on the left legitimately do not see the trans problem because they are largely wealthy and elitist, and so do not identify or see the threat of a battered woman in a womens shelter being housed with TiMs. The majority of young women have not participated in a sport that involved a transwoman and they've been brainwashed by the school system to believe this is a civil rights issue. I wish we could wake the left, but I don't see how. I've been working on people in my life very slowly and it's a lot of planting seeds.

I mean yea, but the thing is that universities, for years, have been brainwashing their students to believe that social loafers or deviants are not a big issue because most people are honest. I was taught this in the context of the "welfare queen" and the university disputing it. Professors tell students this situation is so rare, but used by conservatives to scapegoat people that you start to believe that there are only a few bad apples in any given situation and that social loafers or predators are not as big of an issue as some politicians make them seem. I think what universities are pushing is a dangerous redefinition of personal boundaries in favor of some propaganda agenda.

Agree about the culture bit that you pointed out. It’s a good point. I wonder, however, whether then men could argue that women should not wear pants because we typically wore dresses? It should be fair in terms of drawing a line around our boundaries. Personally, I do not care whether men wear dresses. I care when men try to pretend they are women. Drag is an exaggeration on womanhood and I am fairly conflicted about this. I find it offensive when they use “fishy” or the b or c-words because they are jokes at the expense of women.

Sorry that others are invalidating your perspective because they are speaking up for others (some black feminists) offensiveness and not speaking from their own viewpoint. Reasonable minds can differ, and those minds can speak up directly if they feel offended for themselves.

Well yes, drag is appropriating womanhood and femininity and making fun of women. It is the same as blackface. Although, I disagree that women are the only ones permitted to wear dresses. To me, anyone can participate in femininity, however, only women can participate in womanhood.

The press is still insane. The NYT went and ruined a young girl for making comments “anti-Asian” social media posts when she was even younger. A biracial boy was painted as a hero for speaking out against her.

Yeah, I considered that but can’t decide what’s more dangerous. It’s easier to fight back against people individually than it is to go and reverse damaging laws on the world. Women and girls will suffer under this. Now, CRT and intersectional training will infect our government.

Yep. Although, I didn't and don't like Trump, he was a good stopgap on the woke influence. To be honest, I was hoping we'd have a stopgap for another four years and could somehow squelch the Woke's influence during that time. Trump wasn't making our lives materially worse, like Biden did yesterday with that Equality Act EO.

I saw Biden was taking credit for lowering student loans to 0% and deferring payments. His administrtion stole that credit. While, I was told that Betsy DeVos is an evil evangelist (which I haven't looked into but have reset my opinion on her to indifferent), she's the one that deserves credit for the 0% interest on loans and deferred payments during Covid. I don't want a man to take her credit even if I may have a [possibly misinformed] presumption against DeVos.

Biden also announced he's thinking of putting troops back in Iraq. I am so over the waste of money that is foreign wars abroad because it wastes our dollars that should be spent here while also creating enemies who then use America as a scapegoat. Like I wish they'd just tell Big Pharma to buy the damn poppy from Afghanistan and don't steal it in the new Opium War.

I'm glad I'm not the only that finds the Democrat cultism and apologists on Ovarit to be irritating. I wish the moderators would remove the downvote button and start everyone off with 1 upvote. The platform, as structured with the ranking levels, results in towing the mainstream talking points up to a certain level. It's bad for productive dialogue when the dem mob can go and downvote an opinion that deviates from their mainstream dem and Biden-approved narrative. It doesn't give others a chance to see the opinion that differs from the groupthink or mainstream narrative before it gets downvoted into oblivion. I do like the platform, but I think it could be improved by removing the ranking system, removing the downvote button, and automatically allocating one upvote to each comment/post.

Totally agree about Nancy Pelosi and that politicians are not our friends. As long as we believe or live under a delusion that politicians are our friends or that the Democratic Party is going to help us at some future point is just moving the goalpost toward something that will never manifest. Meanwhile, the dem cult is voting for the very Party that created, endorsed, and perpetuates our current TRAs issues. If we keep supporting the DNC, then we'll never escape this vicious cycle. We can't fix the trans issue if we're loyal to the Party over our radical feminist goals.

It doesn't matter how you vote anyway. Elections are rigged. You can't vote the Woke Dictatorship away.

Agree, this was shocking for me. I knew the DNC rigged it against Bernie in 2016 and then again in 2020, but I was naive in that I didn't think they'd rig it during the general. I was wrong I see that now. There is no ethical line the political ruling class will not cross. Frankly, I'm wondering if they ever changed the system from voting only being among wealthy male propertied owners. At this point, I think the parties vie for their respective, low-informed political caste voters and keep them in line using fear tactics. The media keeps voters complacent and running on low/ zero information and emotionally manipulative propaganda. It's brilliant in a psychopathic, maniacal, Machiavellian way. Reminds me of the FDR quote, “Presidents are selected, not elected.” I just don't get why they even pretend the people have a vote if this is the case? It's just an illusion of democracy and makes people angry. I wish they'd be upfront about this.

Thanks for letting me rant.

Certainly! I'm glad I'm not alone. It's validating for me, so I hope it is for you too. And thanks for letting me rant too. :)

The bottom line is that people in DC did not like Trump first and foremost b/c he didn't do what they said and the media was going all in with whatever they could to discredit him, and anyone could get away with just about anything as long as it was anti trump.

Yeah, the media is corrupt. Note, it's "media" and not "news." That word alone should tell you what they do. Media implies entertainment. People are under a mistaken belief from these con institutions that they provide facts. Some secondary outlets are no better. I realized in 2016 if we had any hope, we'd have to reform the media as a top priority because key to a democratic institution (or if you nitpick this then a "constitutional republic") is freedom of the press. We haven't had freedom of the press since Clinton allowed the media corporations to merge and the legislation waived the fairness doctrine and couldn't talk about the military industrial complex. Make no mistake, however, Fox is no better. Fox created the tactics that CNN and MSNBC adopted. Fox's manipulation tactics were most evident under Bush-Cheney.

Secondly, yea, I agree, the ruling class didn't like the white trash Trump clown that they (NBC) created. Hollywood is modern day clowns and court jesters and Trump was one of their jesters. Trump did not and does not fit in with the DC media and ruling political class. Trump was crude, eats fast food, and wanted attention from the proles. That said, Trump was a con and failed to bring his promises during his 2016 campaign. He never fixed healthcare or drained the swamp, and was frankly lazy and needed to spend more time listening to the presidential briefs and not tools on Twitter or Fox. I did like his EOs banning CRT and rescinding the trans takeover of womens spaces, but Biden nuked those yesterday. I think Trump's greatest achievement was that he's been the least interventionist president involving foreign wars in my lifetime. I think Trump got his lobbying-- now rescinded-- EO ban post-office exactly wrong, but it was better than nothing (the ban should be before taking a position in a presidential administration, not after they've served a position). I don't think you can bring an outsider in to fix the problems in Washington. It needs to be someone from within who has integrity and who knows the ropes. Trump wasn't ever going to make an impact longterm without that experience.

The media could not praise this liar enough.

Marie Yovanovitch should be prosecuted for perjury, but I don't even know if Congress has them take an oath about lying or not lying to them. That said, the Russia hoax was just to assuage Hillary Clinton and the DC lobbying class's ego. They failed in 2016 to win over voters but they couldn't admit their own responsibility that led to Trump. There are a variety of media darlings who are pathological, manipulative, warmongers who are passed off as credible, like John Brennan (retired CIA) and Adam Schiff (D-CA).

If we actually want substantive policies we need to:

  1. Amend the Constitution to overturn Citizen's United and every single piece of bad jurisprudence since Buckley v. Valeo (which incorrectly said money is speech), because money is expression.

Once we have this amendment, then we can move to:

  1. Reforming the media;

  2. Reform and require the ruling class to serve constituents; and

  3. Other actual policies that benefit the people.

The lengths the ruling class went to fuck over Trump was diabolically evil. The ruling class sacrificed Americans (our sanity, our futures, our livelihoods) and the economy just to make sure that white trash orange man didn't stay in power. Pure, selfish evil ruling class.

I imagine that the children are still there.

I don't think they are. There are a certain amount of children where the government can't find their parents, but I hope you are not under a false impression of the facts.

My first act would be to free the children

Considering the Obama administration intentionally built the cages to separate children, assuming this were still happening (which it's not), I don't think Biden would change that policy anytime soon.

From the AP:

THE FACTS: The reference to cages is misleading and a matter that Democrats have persistently distorted.

Trump used facilities that were built during the Obama-Biden administration to house children at the border. They are chain-link enclosures inside border facilities where migrants were temporarily housed, separated by sex and age.

At the height of the controversy over Trump’s zero-tolerance policy at the border, photos that circulated online of children in the enclosures generated great anger. But those photos — by The Associated Press — were taken in 2014 and depicted some of the thousands of unaccompanied children held by President Barack Obama.

When that fact came to light, some Democrats and activists who had tweeted the photos deleted their tweets. But prominent Democrats have continued to cite cages for children as a distinctive cruelty of Trump.

. . .

The Obama administration separated migrant children from families under certain limited circumstances, like when the child’s safety appeared at risk or when the parent had a serious criminal history.

Yes, I feel the same way. Kamala had pronouns in her Twitter bio and introduced herself in a debate as she/her/hers. Joe has been pro-trans the whole time and promised to bring back the Obama executive order interpreting sex to mean gender identity. The dems on Ovarit doesn’t make sense to me.

It’s a joke over the all matching blue-green color and both being wives.

I read an interview of Melania saying she wore that jacket because the media hounds her. It was poor planning on her part.

I wasn’t criticizing what Jill Biden is wearing, I’m just saying it’s a coincidence that she’s dressed like a wife from The Handmaid‘s Tale and the left with the trans are going to erase women.

Agree, but I like the other poster, was relieved it’s not legislation. An EO still sucks but it is easily reversible. I am still upset, but we knew this was coming. Speaking of getting together to protest, how did ovarit collect multiple illiberal dem sycophants? Is ovarit being astroturfed? Why do we get left alone on saidit? I like saidit better because I don’t have to deal with the deranged blue MAGA types that would rather play partisan games than make progress for women as a whole.

Yeah, the media really lost credibility. I knew it was rigged in 2016 from Bernie’s campaign, but I thought we were aligned in our anti-Trump disdain. Until I learned of the Russia hoax and then the Fine People hoax. The whole media institution is just false, misleading and harmful propaganda. Then I learned magic is real because my whole family fell under the media spell. Having core values and critical thinking skills and reading primary documents is key to freedom.

As for the second, supposedly, the neo-cons and RINOs colluded with the Dems to oust Trump. I wager those'll be the Republican candidates offered at Midterm elections.

I would support a classical, anti-war conservative but I think the establishment rigs the elections. See here.
