I have been blogging online since before there were blogs. I continue blogging from time to time on various subjects here and as much of my past blogging as I've been able to recover is found here as well.
How is “non-binary trans person” not a redundancy? Wouldn’t all non-binary people be trans people, as they have a gender that does not correspond to either the gender of people who share their sex or the gender of people of the opposite sex?
“You didn’t used to see them out in public like five years ago,” he told me. “But last time I’m out at a Trader’s Joe” (that’s how he said it) “and you see these women dressed up in beekeeper suits,” he said referring to the traditional Muslim garb known as the niqab.
“L.B. wants to wear a dress and heeled shoes at her graduation ceremony, consistent with the gender that she lives every day. However, just days before her graduation, Defendants made the sudden decision to force L.B. to dress according to the male sex that she was assigned at birth at the ceremony—even though L.B. entered HCHS as a girl and has lived every aspect of her high school career as a girl,” the ACLU said.
Everything I wrote between 2003 and 2007 will be imported into my new site. You can enjoy twenty years of my ranting on George W. Bush, the Iraq War, the proliferation of anti-gay marriage initiatives and the lead up to my winning The Search For The Next Great Progressive Talk Radio Star.
The nature of the transgender issue is like service animals (“it is so if I say so”) and medical marijuana (financially-motivated doctors, subjects with ulterior motives) combined. Alexis’ explanation of her transition to the women’s bathroom is one of graciousness and gratitude, where we can feel the legitimacy of her need, like the Parkinsons patient whose tremors are foretold by her service dog and she makes them cease with a puff of pot.
This week the Grim Reaper took a liking to opera, taking three singers from America, Germany, and the Czech Republic. Our Main Stage this week is an all-British lineup, while our Festival Stage focuses on Brazil. You’ll also hear from our headliner, Chieftain’s fiddler Sean Keane.
Cops ought to cherish their authority and position so much that any other cops who goes bad like this ought to be treated worse by the cops that bust them, just for tarnishing the badge. It ought to be next to impossible for there to be bad cops, because the good ones would never stand for malfeasance in their ranks.
Pot shops don’t form massive hedge funds to buy up residential properties to jack up rents for more shareholder profits. Cannabis fields don’t kick mental patients out of hospitals and onto the streets. Legal reefer doesn’t bankrupt people when they get sick or injured in the only first world country lacking universal health insurance.
Wise men, these Founders, to be able to see three centuries into the future and understand that the need for Minutemen to be instantly ready to grab their muskets, powder, and shot to repel a Redcoat invasion of their Colonial hamlet is justification enough for someone to secretly stockpile modern assault rifles capable of wiping out an entire British platoon in a minute at 300 yards in their city of a million people today.
Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is proposing that the U.S. raise the voting age to 25, with exceptions for those 18 and older who serve in the military, work as emergency responders or take a naturalization test.
I guess it’s all about equality, but the trans athlete gets to be more equal than others. While men and women are restricted to sports of their own sex, the trans athlete gets to choose whichever one feels right.
This week the Grim Reaper brings us Croatian, Moroccan, Brazilian, & Greek artists on the Festival Stage, four American and Australian acts for the Jazz Cellar and the Country Bunker, an American and a Swede on our Main Stage, and, of course, our headliner, Canadian folk legend Gordon Lightfoot.
