In this day and age I thought it was fine to identify as anything you want?

This is the stupidness eating itself in front of everybody and its not pretty.

You can identify as a man, woman, neither, gay, straight or anything on the "spectrum" but if you identify as black, suddenly that's black appropriation and its a problem and we get these weird, way too late, weepy confessions.

Cannot ...... have ..... cake ..... and ...... eat .... it.


But transexuals arent doing it for attention, they genuinely believe, and some science suggests they literally are, in the wrong body. And as for gay or straight, well people are either gay or straight or bi.

Its got no connection whatsoever with what this stupid woman has done


So the rules have changed now?
OK, so you can only identify as something you want to identify as if you are not doing it for attention. Got it.
Who decides if someone is identifying as - whatever - just for attention?


I dont personally give a toss. What I dont like is transexual people, who are often very vulnerable people, being lumped in with a bunch of other "groups" by people who just want to vent about how silly they think the world is

The right often speak of "cancel culture". Well this is an example of cancel culture by the right. They barely tolerate trans people and often portray them negatively.... and use any example they can to belittle or devalue them.


So you won't answer the question. I understand why. When these social rules are foisted on people, like you can identify as whatever you like, it's so full of holes that caveat after caveat has to be made... and the ones who keep making the rules up are often the same pople who foisted these social rules on society in the first place - every time a new inconsistency is introduced.

As for your views on transexual people, a notion that the right 'barely tolerate trans people' is complete horseshit. Bigots are in the minority are not represented by one political ideology.

It is, as long as you're not LARPing an immutable characteristic you're not.

It's hella weird to live your life pretending you're straight/gay/bi/asexual, white/black/Hispanic/Asian/Pacific Islander/mixed, tall/average/short, male/female/trans, etc. when you're not.

How do you know this woman was doing it for attention? she kept it secret for years by the looks of it.

What I'm saying is we've been pounded over the head in the last decade to respect how people feel and that they can be whatever they want.
If this woman feels she is black then we should respect that the same way Johnny feels like he's a girl then back to a guy the next day, pronouns and all.

Basically what I'm saying is if she wants to be black then we should all respect how she feels and address her as such, we're supposed to be tolerant after all.

But who are you to say what's weird? what about all those college kids who are stating on the spectrum they feel like their a girl but they're not Trans or anything?

What about those college kids asking to be called neither a girl or a boy? are they pretending as well?

This woman wasn't pretending, she believes she's black and so lived as a black person.

Who gets to choose which identity beliefs we respect and which we don't? again, sounds intolerant to me to do that.

It's simply my opinion that it's weird. Nothing more, nothing less, and doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. But that's not me saying people identifying as something they're not should be shipped off to the gulags to be reeducated.

I don't care if she wants to identify with black culture. But to me, it's odd to identify as a color you're not. I think it's weird some black and Indian people use skin lightening cream just like I think it's weird some white people use bronzer. I know not everyone is comfortable in their own skin, but that's another issue with society placing some standards of beauty above others.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

But the point remains, where's the line and who decides where the line is, you either let people re-write society or reality, or you don't.

The "right" as whole does not care either. You might be misrepresenting the fact that a majority of parents object to transgenders demanding latrine rights as in pissing alongside little girls. That and allowing biological men to complete withy women. (Now millions of religious folk from around the globe sure do more than devalue them.) If you are trans then deal with the cards you were dealt in life. Not ideal but that is the way it is.

The least "vulnerable" trans I ever saw was a huge black guy dressed up very pretty, full on hair do lipstick and a size 78 dress, full heels! Made him at least 6'9"! We were getting of the tube at Brixton and he was loud, proud and in everyone's face who looked at him. I could only laugh at his antics. :lol:

You see I don't want to be the one slagging off the Left again, but they just keep giving me ammo.

Lefty artsy types are defending borderline paedophillia with Netflix's Cuties which shows 11 yr olds touching themselves, grinding and twerking on all fours, wearing hot pants and scenes of exposing themselves online in the movie, while Republicans and Gabbard are calling for charges to be bought to Netflix.

Thankfully judging by the ratio of difference between Lefty journo's and the general public show that at least the public still have a sense of decency.

Lefty critics 88% approval vs 3% from the audience

.......... and no I didn't only read the Mail, this story is running across multiple outlets.

Serbia and Kosovo have normalized relations as part of the Trump foreign initiatives. After three years of talks. Some EU commentators have claimed that Kosovo being designated a "Muslim state" is a bad thing. They are indeed a Muslim state and yet another step forward for peace. Trump's methodology of opening talks, or even forcing talks is paying off IMO. Grinnell is a super star BTW.

Jedi...any opinion on this as I am sure you have more insight than most?

Completely mocked pageants and the judges.
