Big difference between tranny and queer. I can tolerate either in the world just don’t force me to call it normal because 3% of something is not a norm.

Bigot.

Victor Davis Hanson on the new reality ushered in with a new administration.

Quote
After Nov. 3, the meaning of some words and concepts abruptly changed. Have you noticed how new realities have replaced old ones?

Media cross-examination of the president is now an out-of-date idea. The time for gotcha questions has come and gone. Why ask a president whether he is a traitor or a crook when you can focus on his favorite flavor of milkshake or compliment him on his socks?...

    The IT department at U of Michigan has released a list of inclusive terms, to replace problematic ones.

    For example, rather than the harmful term "picnic," it recommends "gathering." And why engage in violent word violence like "brown bag," when you can use "lunch and learn"? pic.twitter.com/ifh7qMV7wq

    The picnic thing is particularly bizarre; some email meme long past claimed its etymology was racist (it's not), and now we all have to stop saying it because some jerk got bored on the internet in 2001 and made crazy, ahistorical claims? https://t.co/l4lT1W9CKY https://t.co/oAe8trAEcw

So antlers matter but plumbing doesn't? Got it. Oh, and what about the flying part?

Quote
   Santa doesn’t know Zoology:

    Both male & female Reindeer grow antlers. But all male Reindeer lose their antlers in the late fall, well-before Christmas.

    So Santa’s reindeer, which all sport antlers, are therefore all female, which means Rudolf has been misgendered. pic.twitter.com/fkHqhJM7dY

H-6's have limited capacity and depending on demand this could prove problematic for expeditious solutions.  It was due to this heightened popularity of the needed service that Pinochet Rotor Tours utilized spacious H-47's which also allowed for additional flight attendants to handle the passenger load.

Top level insanity. The intelectual corruption is absolute in "academia". In other news, ignorance is strength  :police:
"Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own governors, must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives. A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy or perhaps both"

Replying to @chasestrangio
The foundation of these arguments are based on two dangerous and faulty premises. First, that men and boys are always better, stronger, faster and more skilled than women and girls. Second, that sex categories are binary, fixed and easily identifiable at birth.

Both of these premises are rooted in misogyny and white supremacy. The interest behind these narratives is not in "protecting women" but rather protecting the power of the state to control people's bodies and constrain people's identities.

'We love him so much. We're so proud of him and the choice that he's made.'

At the age of two, Stormy told his family, 'I'm not a girl, I think I'm a boy'. We speak to his parents, Matthew and Klara, who hope that their story helps raise awareness for other families.

Parents are so proud of the choice their child made — at age two — that he’s transgender

These people are screwing up little kids for life to prove how woke they (the parents) are and the the media instead of pointing that out celebrates it.

I never heard that Jenner got breast implants (or any surgery at all).  I assume that is photo shopped.

You'd think if the 4 year old could make such choices, he/she would be the one explaining it on national tv...not the parents.
I gotta agree with that.

I just thought it was a funny (or sad) meme.

The last time I saw him on TV was at Ma's, it was a blurb about dreamers path to citizenship. I didn't notice whether there has been any unnatural enhancement.

The only attention I pay to Jenner is disqualifying anyone in politics or the media that refers to him as a her... Hannity and the rest of FOX, the Republican Party and I think even Trump, I'm looking at you.

Biological sex is not a social construct, so referring to him as a her is propagating a lie.

Google would seem to say that the surgery was completed in 2017.
