A friendly, periodic, prophylactic reminder

 Our right to petition for a redress of grievances has NEVER been and is not contingent upon the exercise of the franchise. So, when you parrot, "If you don't vote, you can't bitch," you are just telling everyone within earshot or who has access to your feed that you flunked civics class. Got that? Good.

Sexual Assault?

A legal definition of a sexual act is necessary for there to be a classification of sexual assault, and I don’t see how such a classification is possible if sex is now to be understood as the Department of Justice wants us to understand it, as an internal sense of gender and, hence, an incorporeal identity. One could respond that the premise of modern sexual assault law has nothing to do with sexual or gender identity but simply that the victim feels sexual assault to be more heinous than other kinds of assault. But doesn’t this just beg the question of what constitutes sexual assault? If nothing bodily picks out a person’s sex--and according to the DOJ Dear Colleague Letter to say otherwise constitutes constitutionally impermissible gender stereotyping--then how can any bodily assault be ‘sexual’?  Why should assaults involving penises and vaginas be considered "sexual" while those involving hands and faces are not when the former have been deemed to be as asexual as the latter?

There’s another problem with classifying assault as sexual. There are just too many fetishes, and if we included them all in the definition of sexual assault, then we would have to acknowledge such things as foot and hand fetishes, which would make unwanted handshakes or stepping on another’s toes sexual assault. This is obviously absurd, but doesn’t the principle of equality that underpins the legal recognition of same-sex “marriage” demand equal treatment under the law of the sexual preferences of all consenting adults?   This would require the recognition of all fetishes under the rubric of "sexual assault", but doing so would criminalize normal everyday human interaction. Ignoring all fetishes would mean ignoring all the hand and foot fetishes along with the penis and vagina fetishes and thereby abolish the concept of 'sexual assault' altogether.   But how can there be any middle ground? If you define sexual acts as coitus, that’s heterosexist bigotry. Define them to include various penetrations of the vagina or by the penis, you are trivializing the sexual choices of foot fetishists, hand fetishists, and so on and so on, and thereby denying the dignity of their sexual lives and choices. You are also implicitly singling out some parts of the anatomy as sexual, and that, once again, runs afoul of the DOJ’s New Doctrine of Gender Identity.

Yes, I know that all this sounds quite silly, but silliness is no longer an objection. Thirty years ago most people regarded the idea of same-sex “marriage” to be silly. Most people now would think classifying anatomical expectations of sex as gender stereotyping to be silly. And yet both these ideas now have the force of law behind them.

Locker room banter among Neo-cons

"Hey, you just start bombing 'em. You don't have to wait."

"Yeah, and give the kids Tic-Tacs so they'll smile for the cameras."

Progressives apparently require lobotomies

A guy named Bill Mitchell tweeted: "The same Liberals passing laws saying our daughters can be forced to shower naked with boys are now upset Trump entered a dressing room?"

To which the LGBT Section Editor of ThinkProgress, Zack Ford, responded:

"Trump is a cisgender man, not a transgender woman. I don't know why conservatives are struggling with this so much today."

When people undress or are naked, 'gender identity' is not the first thing that people notice. It is not even the second, third, or fourth thing. It never ceases to amaze me how lobotomized LGBT Apologists such as Zack Ford require us to be so that we can accept their raving, barking nonsense without question.

Spelling is crucial

I shall not eat at that Turkish Restaurant because I am xenophobic.

I shall not even try to walk across the floor because I am Zenophobic.

See the difference?

And, yes, another letter to the Editor written umsonst

Donald J. Trump has loudly and proudly endorsed the targeting of the families of terrorists, but this advocacy of the Nazi Policy of collective punishment was not enough to doom his candidacy. His decade old jokes about sexual assault apparently are enough to doom his candidacy. How is it that the promise to implement a bloody policy of the most evil political movement of the last century is not enough to disqualify one for the highest office in the land, but crass, offhand jokes caught on tape are? This worries me. As bad as jokes about sexual assault are, surely such jokes are not nearly as dangerous as the obstreperous championing of the stuff that Hitler’s goons did.

All this talk about sexual assault, though, does have me wondering how there can even be such a thing in the light of the Letter issued by Department of Justice regarding the rights of transgender students. That Letter, as you know, rules that denying transgender students access to facilities that match their gender identity constitutes discrimination based upon sex and thereby violates Title IX. The DOJ Letter does indeed explicitly state that sex encompasses the concept of "gender identity”. This inclusion requires that sex be re-defined as something that has nothing to do with anatomy. Otherwise, "gender identity" could not be included in the category of sex. Therefore, the DOJ Letter has re-defined sex to mean something that is incorporeal. If sex, then, is incorporeal, how can any bodily assault be classified as “sexual”?

Where's the outrage?

Calling Trump's pussy grab comment misogynistic eclipses the many men with vaginas and is therefore transphobic.

I am out! I am free!

It's been a long and rocky road, but I can now finally admit the truth to you and, more importantly, myself. I am gay. It’s such a relief to be out. Finally! After so many years of deceit! Mr. Southern, would you please marry me?
