Boambee John:

Someone (Crossie??) mentioned a Lieboral from western Sydney (Penrith??) who lost his seat after proposing to impose something like a “15 minute city” on the locals.

It’s the Digital Currency aspect of this that has me worried.
Imagine the government being consulted every time you make a purchase, and being the final arbiter of it?
And what the Hell happens to my Amazon purchases?

As I said over at C.L.’s, if these are genuine medical interventions then they can’t properly be restricted to adults simply because children can’t consent to a procedure; we don’t deny children access to medical interventions like chemotherapy or amputation in cases of gangrene or the like simply because they are children.

Calls to mind the Beagle Conundrum.

Posited at Old Cat by yours truly, the challenge was for a libertarian supporter of gay ‘marriage’ to explain why a man couldn’t marry a beagle.

Neil Oliver has been throttled by GB News says Steyn. It’s time for him to tell the joint to piss off and do his own thing, too.

Like several other Conservative commentators, his sound track on GB News is dreadful. I’ve stopped listening to his monologues. However, on You Tube it’s as clear as a bell.
I don’t know if anyone else has this problem, but I’m switching to the You Tube channel now. GB News can go shove it – there’s too many cases of sly, dodgy shit happening with their Conservative broadcasts.

Agatha – down the menoryhole for you…

But hey – Monty wants to know why the “right” are engaging in culture wars.

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2023/mar/26/agatha-christie-novels-reworked-to-remove-potentially-offensive-language

Several Agatha Christie novels have been edited to remove potentially offensive language, including insults and references to ethnicity.

Poirot and Miss Marple mysteries written between 1920 and 1976 have had passages reworked or removed in new editions published by HarperCollins to strip them of language and descriptions that modern audiences find offensive, especially those involving the characters Christie’s protagonists encounter outside the UK.

Sensitivity readers had made the edits, which were evident in digital versions of the new editions, including the entire Miss Marple run and selected Poirot novels set to be released or that have been released since 2020, the Telegraph reported.

NSW’s high profile former treasurer, Matt Kean, has ruled out a tilt at being the opposition leader, filling a vacuum left by Dominic Perrottet, saying he has a young family who he wants to spend more time with.

Anthony Albanese welcomes former US president Barack Obama to Sydney

Anthony Albanese has welcomed Barack Obama to Sydney as the former US president kicks off his Australian speaking tour.

Anthony Albanese has welcomed Barack Obama to Sydney after the former US president touched down to begin his Australian speaking tour.

The Prime Minister hosted Mr Obama at Kirribilli House on Monday morning, where the two leaders posed for photographs grinning and holding black umbrellas against a backdrop of a rainy Sydney Harbour.

“Honoured to welcome President Barack Obama to Sydney,” Mr Albanese said on Twitter.

The 44th president of the United States and his wife Michelle landed in Sydney overnight after travelling via private jet.

Mr Obama has speaking events in Sydney and Melbourne on Tuesday and Wednesday evening respectively.

He will discuss global challenges with moderator and former Australian foreign minister Julie Bishop.

The Growth Faculty, which organised the tour, has said on its website Mr Obama and Ms Bishop will discuss “strength in leadership” and “explore techniques for navigating an unpredictable future”.

“In times of great challenge and change, President Obama’s leadership ushered in a stronger economy, a more equal society, a nation more secure at home and more respected around the world,” the event description reads.

The price of the tickets ranged from $195 for a standard seat to nearly $900 for a “platinum” booking.

Staggering archaeological find in Egypt exposes cult

Researchers have uncovered thousands of ancient mummified sheep heads in a part of southern Egypt, indicating the presence of a cult.

Archaeologists in Egypt have discovered more than 2000 ancient mummified sheep heads left as offerings in a temple to the pharaoh Ramses II, the tourism and antiquities ministry said Sunday.

Mummies of dogs, goats, cows, gazelles and mongooses were also exhumed by a team of US archaeologists from New York University at Abydos, a site in southern Egypt famous for its temples and tombs.

Sameh Iskandar, head of the American mission, said the ram heads were “offerings” indicating “a cult to Ramses II celebrated 1000 years after his death”.

The Bradley carries an enormous machine gun able to fire up to 300 rounds a minute and destroy a Russian T-72 tank from over a mile away.

Bollocks! The Bradley has a 25mm main gun, which *might* defeat an MBT with a point blank up the clacker rear end shot, but would be hard pressed to penetrate MBT front, side or turret armour at 1600m.

If it could, why build MBTs at all? Bradley style IFVs, of which Russia has a zillion, are smaller and lighter to transport, less fuel hungry to operate, and cheaper and build than MBTs.

By the time the regular houses were repaired, the demountables were wrecked – remonstrating with the tribal elders elicited the excuse that “the young fellas were bored.”

The elders response is true. If you give somebody everything and require nothing in return then the young people full of energy and nothing to do will destroy what they were given, particularly when it will be replaced without question.

It also proves true the old saying that devil finds work for idle hands.

“Spend more time with the family” excuse is code for “I will use my spare time to undermine a nearby Federal Member of Parliament so I can get his seat”.
Leaving Mad Kean aside, no man who seriously values time with his young family should be in politics, which is all consuming, including weeknights and weekends. Perrottet should grasp the opportunity to disappear into private life.

On Saturday night some Lib female claiming a win in her North electorate was crowing how she worked hard and therefore won, on top of being a mother of small children. She preened how women can do everything. It made me wonder whether she paid the nanny out of her salary or were we paying for it.

It also made me think that if she really loved her children and didn’t need to work to put food on the table and a roof over their heads she would have spent the early, formative years with them. Once they were older she could have indulged her ambitions. I never regretted being at home with my kids when they were little but the trade off was that we only had one smallish car and took modest holidays.

Which Countries Hold the Most U.S. Debt?

Today, America owes foreign investors of its national debt $7.3 trillion.

These are in the form of Treasury securities, some of the most liquid assets worldwide. Central banks use them for foreign exchange reserves and private investors flock to them during flights to safety thanks to their perceived low default risk.

Beyond these reasons, foreign investors may buy Treasuries as a store of value. They are often used as collateral during certain international trade transactions, or countries can use them to help manage exchange rate policy. For example, countries may buy Treasuries to protect their currency’s exchange rate from speculation.

In the above graphic, we show the foreign holders of the U.S. national debt using data from the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Top Foreign Holders of U.S. Debt

With $1.1 trillion in Treasury holdings, Japan is the largest foreign holder of U.S. debt.

Japan surpassed China as the top holder in 2019 as China shed over $250 billion, or 30% of its holdings in four years.

This bond offloading by China is the one way the country can manage the yuan’s exchange rate. This is because if it sells dollars, it can buy the yuan when the currency falls. At the same time, China doesn’t solely use the dollar to manage its currency—it now uses a basket of currencies.

Here are the countries that hold the most U.S. debt:

Not a rebuttal

I never said it was. I prefer a discussion, not a school debate.

The problem is why is the union of the sexes aspect is able to be denied by legislation but the other aspects not?

In Australia explicitly and specifically because John Howard changed the law.

I have changed my mind on this. I think Taiwan got it right with civil unions, at least as a compromise.

I still think more religious people (but effectively anyone) should be able to specify that they want a fault based divorce and pre nuptial agreements.

I still think marriage shouldn’t be public law.

The criticism of that is that children are involved so it is existential and involves externalities. How well has Family Law actually worked? Has any conservative body like the ACL or even the Australian Catholic Church ever made a statement on what Family Law ought to entail? It is more than the Marriage Act. State law has detailed rules on property, succession and equity in general anyway.

I’ve been considering m0nty’s accusation that the trans thing is the latest moral panic created by conservatives in a long stream of such issues. The assumption is that we need something to focus our innate bigotry on from time to time to give our lives meaning.

This can’t be further from the truth. Most of us mooch around our lives, earning an income to support our families and to pay our bills. We don’t have the leisure time to think up weird and wonderful diversions, and at the end of the day we tumble into bed exhausted. The trans issue has been foisted upon us, with outrageous demands not only of acceptance but outright promotion. This isn’t something that has been simmering under the surface for years. It’s a confected “crisis” designed to punish and wedge conservatives. Another divisive brickbat to hurl at people who want none of it.

The ones promoting child grooming and mutilation seem to think it’s a game, another sector on the progressive chocolate wheel. What will the next spin be? What new abomination will be vociferously promoted and eagerly forced upon an unwilling populace?

I couldn’t care less if the occasional fruitcake marries a beagle. Unless the beagle is traumatized by the event! Using such rare examples is fraught with peril. We may as well argue children should never be left alone with adults, especially adults held in high esteem because they are among the most frequent perpetrators of pedophilia. Weird behaviors are inevitable and are at the margins. It is not as if the occasional account of marrying a beagle will lead to a wave of bestiality. We can’t promote freedom and then demand that freedom be constrained by our moral imperatives. If no harm done let it be.

Secondly, international trade doesn’t work the way you think it does, you ignorant buffoon.

If there’s a letter of credit backing the shipment of a decent quantity of goods or raw materials a third party will always authenticate what has been purchased at the last port. No half decent importer would allow goods to go through without evidence what they are buying is what they paid for.

I’d bet those people raising issues were domestic producers without an ounce of evidence backing them up.

I’m currently gazing over the channel at Port Macquarie. The brilliant morning has turned into an overcast afternoon, with the jewelled sparkle of the water transformed to a soft, milky grey.

Went out to the winery adjacent to the M1 – it has been there since forever, I think it was there 47 years ago when we came here for our honeymoon. The town itself bears little resemblance to those days though. There is massive development everywhere, including new housing estates. Where are all the people coming from?

We had lunch yesterday in the old Royal Hotel. Now a pub/restaurant, and very popular. It was very down at heel all those years ago when the place was a relatively sleepy little coastal town off the beaten track. And the pub was definitely a front bar/ladies’ lounge type of establishment. 😀

Hungary Not Sure if it Wants to Support Finland and Sweden Joining NATO While U.S. State Dept Tries to Overthrow Hungarian Government

March 26, 2023 – Sundance

One of many things to like about Hungary is their brutal honesty when it comes to the United States meddling in their domestic affairs. {Background}

Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó gave an interview recently where he said it is more challenging to support the NATO objective, when the United States is so committed to overthrowing the Hungarian government. He has a good point.

Hungary has been in the crosshairs of the Biden/Obama administration ever since Prime Minister Viktor Orban refused to align with the WEF Western Democracies in their quest for regime change in Russia. As the NATO led western alliance assembled to use Ukraine as a proxy war against Russia, Hungarian Prime Minister Orban would not join.

In early April 2022, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban was overwhelmingly reelected {LINK}, despite the massive efforts against him by the European Union, western and euro-centric multinational globalists.

As a result of the victory, Brussels was furious at the Hungarian people. Associated Press – […] “Orban — a fierce critic of immigration, LGBTQ rights and “EU bureaucrats” — has garnered the admiration of right-wing nationalists across Europe and North America.” (link)

Within the statements reported from his 2022 victory speech, Prime Minister Orban warned citizens of the NATO and western allied countries about the manipulation of Ukraine and how he views the Zelenskyy regime: […] “while speaking to supporters on Sunday, Orban singled out Zelenskyy as part of the “overwhelming force” that he said his party had struggled against in the election — “the left at home, the international left, the Brussels bureaucrats, the Soros empire with all its money, the international mainstream media, and in the end, even the Ukrainian president.” (link)

This put Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban in the crosshairs of the western alliance, specifically the EU and U.S. bureaucrats who use their power, position and intelligence apparatus to manipulate foreign nations.

A year later and now we see USAID Administrator Samantha Power in Hungary openly discussing her seeding of the NGO’s and political activist systems in order to generate yet another color revolution. {Direct Rumble Link} – WATCH:

Samantha Power, the wife of Cass Sunstein, is well known as the Obama/Biden administration’s advance operative who uses her position in U.S. government to influence activism in targeted nations. Hungary is now a target.

POSTED ON MARCH 26, 2023 BY JOHN HINDERAKER IN FBI, JANUARY 6
THE FBI AND THE PROUD BOYS

I haven’t followed the January 6 prosecutions as closely as I probably should have.

I thought it was obvious that the Capitol riot was the most overblown story of modern times. The idea that the protesters who entered the Capitol (mostly peacefully, as far as I could see, more or less invited in by Capitol guards) were mounting an “insurrection” was and is absurd, given that not a single one of them brought a firearm, and they made no attempt to harm anyone inside the Capitol. Some insurrection!

A big trial is now going on in Washington–the biggest, as I understand it, of the post-January 6 trials. Five Proud Boys are the defendants. Like Donald Trump, when asked about this group in a presidential debate, I don’t know a damn thing about the Proud Boys, except that, unlike Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters, they have never burned down a big chunk of a city.

Julie Kelly has been following the trial, and you should read her report at American Greatness.

It turns out that there may have been more FBI agents than Proud Boys involved in the “plot” that has these defendants facing long prison terms:

Most of the evidence is nothing more than inflammatory, braggadocious chatter in group texts; [Proud Boy leader Enrique] Tarrio wasn’t even present at the Capitol on January 6. Another defendant, Ethan Nordean, can be seen on surveillance video walking through an open door as Capitol police stood nearby.

Similar to other so-called “militia” groups tied to January 6, no one brought weapons to the Capitol that day; no one was charged with assaulting police officers or lawmakers. A key piece of evidence that prosecutors claimed was a road map for the “attack” on the Capitol wasn’t produced by any Proud Boy but by a former intelligence asset who himself sent the plan to Tarrio through a third party.

The document represented just one more instance of how a government agent helped shape the government’s narrative that the Proud Boys plotted in advance to carry out an “insurrection” on January 6. In fact, much like the FBI-engineered plan to “kidnap” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020, court proceedings confirm that FBI assets might outnumber criminal defendants.

It also turns out that one FBI informant stayed in touch with the Boys after the demonstration and even talked to their defense counsel while trial strategy was being planned. Only within the last few days have defendants and their lawyers been told that a woman whom they considered a friend and who participated, to some degree, in discussions of how the case should be defended, was in fact an FBI informer.

The government and the trial judge are maneuvering furiously to prevent the public from learning how deeply the FBI had penetrated the Proud Boys, and from learning what role FBI agents and informers played in the demonstration:

There is much more at the link. I won’t try to summarize it all here. Suffice it to say that the real scandal arising from the January 6 protest was not the fact that a handful of demonstrators broke into the Capitol, while many more were freely admitted by guards.

Rather, the principal scandal is the manner in which pro-Donald Trump demonstrators have been treated by law enforcement: held without trial in solitary confinement, ridiculously over-charged (e.g., insurrection vs. trespassing), forced to plead guilty to imaginary or over-hyped offenses by the prospect of long jail terms for offenses they never committed, and set up by FBI agents and informants loyal to the Democratic Party who, it seems, may have played key roles in encouraging the demonstration to get out of hand.

If the January 6 protesters had been treated the same as the BLM/Antifa rioters who did more than 100,000 times as much damage, and killed somewhere between 30 and 50 people, they would have been showered with tens of billions of dollars by corporate America as encouragement to keep it up. Instead, they were condemned to solitary confinement.

We may never know what really happened on January 6, 2021, particularly with regard to the involvement of federal agents and informers.

But one thing we can say for sure is that the FBI, in anything like its present form, has to go.

Black Lives Matter Activists Executed A Shocking $83 Billion Shakedown Of American Corporations

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots of 2020 were the largest and most successful shakedown in American history. These “mostly peaceful protests” — which burned more than 200 American cities and wreaked more than $2 billion in damages — achieved more than anyone could have predicted: changes in laws, private sector policies, and perhaps most importantly, a historic transfer of wealth to racial and leftwing causes.

As a result, American corporations gave or pledged more than $83 billion to either BLM or BLM-related causes.

We created a database tracking contributions and pledges made to the BLM movement and related causes, which we define as organizations and initiatives that advance one or more aspects of BLM’s agenda, and which were made in the wake of the BLM riots of 2020. To date, our data spans more than 400 companies and $83 billion in pledges and contributions.

The famed consulting firm McKinsey and Company thinks the number is far larger. They calculated that from May 2020 to October 2022 companies pledged about $340 billion “to racial equity, specifically for Black Americans after the murder of George Floyd in May 2020.” Our number is conservative by comparison. But unlike McKinsey, we provide details about the pledges and contributions of specific companies.

We are surprised at some of the incredulity in our calculations. So too is BLM, which suggests that objections to wealth transfers of this scale are rooted in “white supremacy,” and “a pathology that Black organizations don’t deserve to be funded.”

BLM called for reparations. In a sense, they succeeded, as these reparations were paid out to BLM itself (approximately $122 million) and to its vast NGO archipelago and other racialized causes and schemes under various names.

While the money was given or pledged in different ways, it was unmistakable for so-called “racial justice.” Sometimes this meant cash transfers to partners of BLM, like the Color of Change, the NAACP, the Equal Justice Initiative, and the ACLU.

Sometimes it meant cash or pledges to other “reparative” initiatives including race-based, discriminatory hiring programs; race-based, sub-prime lending; race-based scholarships; and partisan voter initiatives. Sometimes it meant Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives, which are the polite versions of BLM calibrated to middle-class, middle-management tastes. The DEI ideology disagrees with BLM in few ways, if any.

DEI and BLM share one mission: to punish white America, through different means. The latter through riots and pressure campaigns, the former through preferential hiring and promotion of members of protected groups. Both aim to redistribute honor, privileges, and money to black Americans. Both are extorting special privileges and money by using white guilt.

Moreover, both are attempting to do so by cultural revolution, and both stand openly against meritocracy, the rule of law, freedom of speech, and individual rights. Correctly understood, DEI is an expression of BLM’s broader agenda.

We already know the exorbitant amount of money given or pledged by large banks like JPMorgan ($30 billion), Bank of America ($18 billion), and Silicon Valley Bank ($70 million) in the wake of the 2020 BLM riots to subsidized and sub-prime race-based lending, race-based investment targeting, supply chain diversity initiatives, and nonprofits advancing racial justice.

But BLM was so effective that even seemingly middle-America companies shelled out big.

For example, Cargill, the Minnesota-based food producer, launched its “Black Farmer Equity Initiative,” a redistributive program that attributes declining numbers of black farmers to “the legacy of systemic racism” and seeks to “dismantle Anti-Black racism” and “operationalize equity across the food and agriculture system.” Cargill pledged $11 billion to the initiative through 2030.

That is just not true, calli. Trans people have not forced you to do anything. They were struggling to live their lives as quietly as they could for decades before this current moral panic. Castor Semenya first appeared in 2009, this thing has been going on for a long time at a relatively low level before it became a big front in your culture wars.

Women are not losing their rights. I happen to agree with swimming and athletics when they banned trans people who went through male puberty from competing in women’s competition, and that means no women’s rights are being trampled there.

If you start faffing on about toilets, that’s just stupid. There’s nothing to stop cis men or anyone else with a penis from entering women’s toilets to assault women. Cis men do this regularly as it is. This is really a non-issue with no application to real world situations except to make trans people feel bad. Which is what you’re really on about, isn’t it? You want trans people to feel ostracised and unwanted.

As adults, and law abiding citizens in a free country, we’re not farken allowed to buy a particular example of an auto, because a quarter century previous, the same vehicle type was sold locally.

In FARK can that possibly make sense, and in FARK don’t it apply to all other consumer goods?

We will never ever deal with the Greens!

‘We need to act on climate change’: Government receives support from the Greens on Safeguard Mechanism reforms (Sky News, 27 Mar)

In exchange for support, the Greens had previously demanded that the government commit to not opening any new coal or gas projects, which Labor repeatedly ruled out.

However leader Adam Bandt said his party had “negotiated significant changes” to the legislation which included a hard cap on pollution which he claimed would make it difficult for new projects to advance.

“Coal and gas have taken a huge hit,” Mr Bandt said on Monday.

“The Greens have stopped many of the 116 new coal and gas projects in the pipeline from going ahead, pollution will actually go down, and we’ve derailed the Beetaloo and Barossa gas fields.”

I hope they didn’t ban portable generators. They’re going to get very popular.

“we don’t deny children access to medical interventions like chemotherapy or amputation in cases of gangrene or the like simply because they are children. “

Show me the child who is “confirmed” in:

* their desire to be thinner, even when grossly underweight (anorexic)
* their desire to have a perfectly healthy arm/hand/leg/foot removed because it doesn’t “feel right” (“body disphoria”)

You can’t because we DON’T DO THIS! We provide psychological counseling because such actions as above would dangerous to the individual and/or are permanent and life altering. A minor does not have a sufficiently mature brain to make such choices, and they will most likely “grow out of it”.

I know plenty of women who are happily married and have children, yet were certainly “tom-boys” when younger. There is nothing wrong with this – it is a normal part of the “spectrum” for a woman to experience, some to a greater degree, some to a lesser. Without exception, those I know like this have ended up very happy with their life, despite not expecting to have what they got, and despite not fitting the preferred “mold” of being a (young) woman. They accepted their lot and got on with life – and are without exception very glad they did.

If those who have reached their majority wish to have plastic surgery, and are prepared to pay for it, they can have it – face lift or sex change makes no difference to me; they pay for it, they can have it and they can pay for the consequences of it too.
However, to give irreversible surgery or body altering drugs to a minor because they “feel like” it is very wrong – most especially when it usually results in lifelong sterility or other issues! Frankly, even adults who want such surgery should be OBLIGED to go through a long and arduous process in order to get it if you ask me.

By constantly commenting on Dutton’s requests for more information the PM is just giving him airtime. Time to call this out: Dutton’s position is irrelevant to the will of the Australian people. This is not the ALP’s referendum or even the government’s referendum, it is a referendum sponsored by the people.

In years to come, historians will be astonished to find that, in the early decades of the third millennium, legislators, teachers, doctors – in fact, a significant percentage of the population – suffered a mass psychogenic illness event which saw science, evidence and truth over-ruled by feelings. They will marvel at the stupidity and the depth of depravity condoned and encouraged by politicians and the judiciary of the times.

“Trans people have not forced you to do anything. “

How long do you think before we are like Canada – where “dead naming” or refusing to use a “preferred pronoun” is a criminal offense?
They can REQUEST me to use their new name/pronoun, and frankly if they ask, it makes no odds to me, so why not?
But if they tell me I MUST, that is compelled speech – and that I will not tolerate.
Not because of this specific circumstance – although any circumstance is bad enough – but because once we start down that path, we are agreeing that the government can control what I say and punish me for saying the “wrong” thing.
Not talking about lying to create a bank run or a stampede, or destroying someones good name, but what I can call you? Go to hell – if I want to call you a cross-dressing moron, I will. Justified in your eyes or not, I don’t care. If I have slandered you, then by all means take me to court for a civil tort. But as a criminal offense? No effing way!

My preferred pronoun is “Your Highness”, but that doesn’t mean I can force you to use it, does it? And yes, I do have links to the British monarchy, like no doubt many millions of others do too. Hardly close, but so what – I am related, it’s real, use my preferred pronoun or you’re a BIGOT and you might cause me to commit suicide if you won’t call me it!

It took less than a month for Sharri Markson’s new 5pm hour on Sky News to draw level in the ratings with the host she replaced, Chris Kenny, who has moved to the 8pm hour, and Paul Murray, who follows Kenny at 9pm.

So Markson’s show – the only hour at Sky News devoted to breaking news stories – is becoming Sky’s No.3 show in the ratings behind Blot and Credlin.

This is an interesting test for the idea of breaking news on a show that, until now under Kenny, was simply an opinion show rehashing the news of the day.

I predict that, within a year, Markson’s show will be breaking new ground and challenging Blot and Credin’s dominance of Sky’s evening ratings.

Barbarians censoring the Divine Agatha, like those twentysomething scriptwriters who inserted lesbian love scenes and even new lesbian and gay characters into her stories.

Instead of regarding her work as a depiction of contemporary attitudes and language, these idiots seek to erase literary and social history. Thank goodness I have hard copies, and I urge everyone to do the same for their favourite books. The digital and later printed versions may well be a woke and censored travesty.

As for the ‘victim’ Aboriginal woman in Darwin who was not only evicted but barred from re-applying for public housing for a few years, we are not talking about failure to pay rent, or letting the grass grow too long. We are talking about trashing the property, neighbours being threatened and harassed, loud and frequent fights, all night parties on a regular basis – to name a few of the likely causes. A family member lived next to a crowd who did all of this and didn’t get evicted (in NSW). Hand-patters turned up in droves, while my family member let the frightened and tired children sleep on her couch and gave them breakfast.

WRT the ‘father’ of the guy who murdered the bottle shop attendant, he said that the kid was hungry and deprived throughout his childhood. So, where were you, champ? His mother was allegedly a hopeless pisswreck, and you did … what?

Why, you came out of the woodwork when it was too late and blamed ‘racism’ – and that you left a knife lying around.

The issue is: which person features highest on the woke totem pole.

Tranny, black, muslim. Millennial rock paper scissors.

If a bloke wants to “marry” his beagle, I’m ok with that. Same as free speech for antisemites. I don’t buy into the belief systems of either, but it tells us who the loonies are.

Why is it hateful or bigoted to want women’s spaces (loos, change rooms) reserved for women? And women only? This was once such a reasonable “given” that no one thought about it much at all. It is now some sort of pathetic progressive battleground.

Bizarre doesn’t begin to describe it.

If it wasn’t, the ‘sad buggers’ wouldn’t make sense.

Bold of you to assume I can support civil unions for gays but can’t think “marrying yourself” is dumb, and I have some moral obligation to stop people from doing something dumb.

If you work in the corporate sector and ‘misgender’ someone cosplaying a fe/male you will be disciplined or lose your job.

The invisible hand of the market!

You betcha!
When I turn up for work in the corporate sector appearing in my new ID, having ‘transitioned’ during the night, & appear in my new identity, expressed via boot-polished blackface, striped trousers, red waistcoat, & frizzy afro hair, I expect not one word to be said.
…. except to discipline or fire anyone who doesn’t act like I’m the normal & well adjusted one.

Say “Transwomen are Women” to yourself. Say it six times and it becomes true. Well known fact.

Biological women prisoners have been raped and impregnated by male criminals …
Sources required for that claim.
Otherwise, you’re lying …

“You didn’t give a crap about women’s spaces back then and you don’t give a crap about it now. You just want to spread hatred for trans people. You’re not even being subtle about it. You don’t deserve to be argued with in good faith.”

The issue is SUPPOSED to be about EQUALITY.
But it has always and ever been about getting the “weaker” ones to have their own way, while denying the same to the “stronger” ones – whether that be race, sex or sexuality.

To whit:
* we must all celebrate “International Womens Day”, but there is hardly anyone who even notices “International Mens Day” (Nov 17 this year, in case you didn’t know);

* we must have “pride month” for LGBQWERTY people, but no mention of “Straight Pride Marches” for even a single day, let alone a month of celebrating the 90+%;

* you can, apparently, discriminate against a person for their race, but ONLY if that person is part of the majority;

* you can’t disparage or denigrate a minority, even where they have done it to you, and even where they clearly deserve it, but there is no excuse required to denigrate the majority.

This is total crap – I thought we were supposed to all be equal before the law? That is all I ask, and I am happy to give it as well. But the perverts, weirdos and racist “victims” are not prepared to give it to me. So screw them.

You know how hard it is to watch what is clearly a man walk into a women’s change room and NOT drag them out? You know how depressing it is to know that despite most likely being cheered by the legitimate patrons of that space, I am likely to be arrested and fined or even gaoled for doing it? I can recall the time where not only would I be cheered for doing this, I would have been able to snot the offender and not face any charges for it – more like others would have joined in, including the police!

So no, M0nty, they don’t get an exception in my book. If they have the cut and get turned from an “outie” to an “innie”, then they can go in there, but not before. And regardless of said “cut”, you don’t get to compete against real women in sport – as a male, you have a higher centre of gravity, more muscle mass, higher bone density and more fast-twitch muscle fibre, as well as being statistically taller and heavier. You think this isn’t a real thing? Try this: stand up straight with your back against the wall, then touch your toes. A man cannot do this without falling over, a woman has no problem doing it and won’t fall over. We are different, and no amount of hormones after puberty changes that.

You can have all the plastic surgery you want and can afford to pay for, as well as take all the drugs you want, some things are set at a certain point in development and cannot be changed. We created womens sports in recognition that men are generally taller, faster and stronger as a part of their physiology, this putting women on an unequal footing against them. I have no issue with that. I have the issue where a person who has the advantages of being male gets to compete against those who do not – that’s called “cheating” if you ask me.

“Bizarre doesn’t begin to describe it.”

It’s worse than sinister, it’s creepy. Almost all of these males are fetishists, perverts and autogynephiles, males who get sexually aroused imagining themselves as women, who get sexually aroused putting on women’s clothes, particularly underwear, and who get sexually aroused in women’s private spaces where there are women and children about.

Such men are very dangerous.

Had a gander over at the Discord Cat Collectives..
The Nilk and Zippster-initiated channels are basically defunct, unused, bereft of sentient life.
Dover’s channel still stands, but with low traffic, when compared to this.

In Kiwi Land for a few weeks…so which country is the most woke?

I would think NZ, but on flying down to Melbourne via Virgin of course we got the acknowledgement or whatever it’s called of being on aboriginal land.

But then again, nothing at all at landing in Queenstown, where they were giving away free date-expired RATs tests in a box on the way out of the airport.

I shall keep score.

You didn’t give a crap about women’s spaces back then and you don’t give a crap about it now

I beg to differ. I cared so much about “women’s spaces” that I shelled out a shed load to have my daughters educated in a girls’ school. I had no intention of having them used to “socialise” unruly boys.

And now I have two grand daughters. I do not want them worrying about some random pervert invading a loo or change room. They can do that right now, of course, but then right now they would be regarded as a pervert and suffer the righteous consequences. You want me to think of them as something else because they decided to be a “woman” today. No dice.
