Charlottesville

Will this be the opening shot of a war that goes down in history? One against the vile ideas of another time that these hateful people that Donald Trump’s america has rebranded as the alt-right. The ‘alt-right’ because it sells better than the former brand ‘White Supremacist’. Trump knows all about branding. I don’t care…… Continue reading Charlottesville

Common Cause

Well, this will be short I think. Who would have predicted common cause between some conservative Republican Senators, especially with Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) as one of them. A conservative for conservatives. It is not hard to see why virtually all Democratic senators delivered a big thumbs down to one of the singularly most politically stupid,…… Continue reading Common Cause

TERF partie le deuxième

Getting a rant off my chest. I made the mistake of interacting with some of these misanthropic, unconfident excuses for educated human beings and found myself quite disturbed.

All these communities really are marginalized, victimized, and vilified by the general populace or even just the majority. They feel justifiable outrage, but sometimes that slips over into things that…… Continue reading Lose that Chip

How to think about LGBTIQ people

I look at Quora. I look at it quite a lot and I often write answers to the questions. I noticed a particular question today asking how LGBT contributes to society. There were already people making a bunch of reasonable points, but I don’t think they did a good job making the main one: LGBTIQ,…… Continue reading How to think about LGBTIQ people

Biological Sex – a political landmine

There re those, and for awhile I was one, who say biological sex doesn’t exist. Supporting this is the reality that most of your body couldn’t care one fig what your chromosomes say. The exception was the development of your ovaries or testes or possibly the ovo-testes that form in the development of some intersex…… Continue reading Biological Sex – a political landmine
