right wing warriors

Social conservatives are all about finding fault with progress. They decry social justice warriors (SWJs), political correctness, the LGBT agenda and any other movements that threaten their world view. I have written about them here: people like Ben Shapiro, Tomi Lahren, Faith Goldy, Spiro Yannopoulos and Matt Crowder. They are aggressive and insulting and make conclusions about things they know little about.

They have also gained a small but loyal following of angry millenials who want to find fault with the world and all that ails it.

These pundits are shrill and painfully annoying and are armed with the kind of smugness that youth is particularly blessed with. Their interest in truth takes a back seat to criticising what they see as an overabundance of political correctness behind which they conceal their disdain for people they do not comprehend. They are the next wave of Ann Coulters armed with an even healthier dose of chutzpah.

Basic psychology would suggest that their aggression comes from deep seated fear that things aren’t quite the way you imagine them. A well adjusted and happy person has nothing to be aggressive about and doesn’t interfere with the happiness of others unless it collides with dogmas that threaten a tidy and imagined world order.

This youth core differs from the geriatric Fox News curmudgeon but they are cut from much the same cloth. The way things are supposed to be are not to be tampered with and you risk facing their wrath on radio, social media or some college campus talk which draws no shortage of protestors. They aren’t dumb but not nearly as intelligent as they think they are since experience is what encourages doubt that not all is as it appears.

Let’s see where they are in twenty years shall we?

  1. In 20 years? Being paid to do more of what they're doing. Right wing lunacy is the last remaining career with job security. It's actually a great gig. The right wing takes are of those willing to say anything for it. And these talkers know they're auditioning for people in charge. They'll be shifted around in think tanks and appointed to positions for which they are eminently unqualified. They'll be fine. The poor saps that support them and vote for them? Not so much. In 20 years there won't be a recognizable America.

    1. extreme punditry seems to be the new form of entertainment. A pretty sad state of affairs. I also forgot to mention that dolt Tucker Carlson who always has that stupid and befuddled expression when he interviews...

another coming out

Recently I had lunch with one of the young estimators who occasionally works with me here in Toronto. We were chatting about work and our respective lives when she queried about my love life:

“So how is it going on that front. Meet anyone interesting lately?”

I reflected for a moment and then said:

“My situation is a little particular and if you don’t mind I can share something about myself”

She leaned in a bit and told me to please go ahead.

“I am trans” I said matter of factly.

She looked at me and smiled and said:

“Really? That’s so neat”

She is 35 years old and a lovely person which is why I knew I could confide in her. I then added that I had been reflecting on whether I would switch companies and begin working as Joanna and although she is totally open she also knows how conservative our business can be. So I told her that if I did decide to it would definitely be under a different umbrella.

Then yesterday I was coming back to my place and the lady who rents it to me, who is abo…

feeling sexy

Here are the results of a recent survey of genetic women:

“A new hairdo, walking in heels and a glowing tan are among the things that make a woman feel sexy. Freshly applied lipstick, newly-shaved legs and a little black dress also have a positive effect on the psyche”

Are you surprised? I’m not because it is exactly the same list that makes transgender women feel sexy.

For a long time the idea was pandered about that transsexualism was rooted exclusively in aberrant sexuality. But of course you cannot separate the sexuality from the individual because that forms part of their overall makeup and the fact that genetic and transsexual women overlap here surprises no one.

We should also add here that women aren't always thinking about sex and neither are transgender women.

Pre transition transsexuals would not readily admit they found these things sexy because they were afraid to be seen as perverted men in front of gatekeepers who understood nothing about their condition.

Today we kn…

Being transgender isn't exclusively a problem of aberrant sexuality

If being transgender were exclusively a problem of aberrant sexuality, then I would seem to be an exception to the rule.

To date I have lived my life like a choir boy and have had low libido throughout. I have yet to ever see a porn film and both my ex-wife and ex-girlfriend complained about my lack of sex drive. I also knew I was different from a very young age.

This is why the accusation that male to female transgender persons attracted to women are perverts doesn’t hold much water with me. I was mortified when I hit puberty and realized that my desire to be female had taken on sexual overtones and I ended up, like most of you, repeatedly throwing things in the bin as a repudiation. In fact, accepting that my sexuality has been permanently impacted was the hardest pill to swallow in my journey to become a fully realized transgender person.

That is why I say to those who are still concerned about what outsiders who haven’t lived your personal experience have to say about you should l…
