Probably.  Good luck getting them withdrawn.
Super easy, barely an inconvenience.

Just say that unless they feature the new progressive pride flag they are fascistic holdovers from the patriarchy and insufficiently transdemisensitive.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

How about madness of a different sort as in a woman beaten and set on fire "reportedly" by a group of teenagers.  :mad:

Damn, that sounds pretty bad. 

I hope they catch the ones who did it.

On the Kroger thing, no link, but I just heard on Fox Business that this one rando was not exactly a rando. She is a North Carolina lawmaker. They just said "lawmaker" so I don't know where she is in the scheme of things there, but it was her tweet that made them tremble.

That's been a thing among the trans community for ages: any dissent is crushed hard.

Kinda funny: most of the LGBTQ crowd that I know are actually fairly conservative otherwise

New Rule: I Want My Lawyer! | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdJvEGokuAk

I heard about these comments on another video.  He makes some comments on why Democrats are losing support with some people.  Makes some good points.  Seems to be saying radical Democrats are ignoring a number of traditional constituent groups or actively insulting them.  When he talked about Asian Americans, he didn't mention the hate crimes against them in some areas which local Democrats are doing nothing about.

Jordan Peterson has been locked out of Twitter for "hateful conduct":

https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2022/06/29/remember-when-pride-was-a-sin-jordan-peterson-locked-out-of-twitter-for-hateful-conduct-deadnaming/

The offending tweet:

[img width=400]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FWYYUjjXEAAhpbj?format=jpg&name=large

So it apparently wasn't even because of the comment per se, but because he called her "Ellen" instead of whatever name she is using now. "Deadnaming" is one of the stupider things these weirdos come up with as a punishable sin.

Just wait.  One day "deadnaming", or whatever it's called then, will become a criminal offense.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

"extremist Supreme Court"

Apparently they're really upset over not letting men in women's sports among other things

    As we witness an extremist Supreme Court and state legislatures across the country attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people and target trans communities with hateful and bigoted attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough.https://t.co/ZepueykOUk

The Hill reports:

    The proposal, dubbed the “Transgender Bill of Rights,” would codify the Supreme Court’s 2020 Bostock v. Clayton County decision that protects employees against discrimination for being gay or transgender.

    The proposal would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to explicitly include protections for gender identity and sex characteristics, expand access to gender-affirming care and ban conversion therapy.

Neopronouns Explained
https://intercultural.uncg.edu/wp-content/uploads/Neopronouns-Explained-UNCG-Intercultural-Engagement.pdf

What the *expletive deleted*ck is a "spivak"?

They make it impossible to keep up with this *expletive deleted*it. Which makes it that much easier to ignore it. Whether I learn what it is or not, I will never call someone "spivak" or any of the other dumbass senseless names.

I don't know what it is but as soon as someone asks me my preferred pronoun that's the one I am using. :)

Got curious and apparently it goes back a ways
According to wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spivak_pronoun

Quote
The Spivak pronouns are a set of gender-neutral pronouns in English promulgated on the virtual community LambdaMOO based on pronouns used by American mathematician Michael Spivak. Though not in widespread use, they have been employed in writing for gender-neutral language by those who wish to avoid the standard terms "he/she" or singular they.

Three variants of the Spivak pronouns are in use, Rogers (1890), Elverson (1975), and LambdaMOO (1991), highlighted in the declension table below.

Quite a bit more in the article.
