What did the post referred to have to do with Trump? Well maybe the fact that, as you just did again, you mentioned him in it? You can't put him up as a counter-example and then say your post had nothing to do with him. Or, I suppose, given present company, I should say that you can, but you shouldn't.

Huh? Larry Elder was the frontrunner there, and I already commented on him in the appropriate thread. Is the implication that I don't like Levine partially because of political reasons? Not sure I get the point of your question.

Yes, that was why the medical field was willing to take those steps. However, I'd wanted those parts gone since I was fifteen and woke up at three in the morning flipping over every few seconds because turning over, stopped the pain for a second. My reproductive system was nothing but a drain on my body's resources and I didn't value them at all. You may consider the surgery mutilation, but I considered those organs harmful and unnecessary.

I'm sure most women would consider a penis harmful or unnecessary, especially as merely having one is enough to severely impact her life right down to the bathroom she takes a dump in.

LOL. Most "women" were not born with a pecker, luckily. If you are a biological male, and you have yours cut off, that doesn't make you a "woman", I'm afraid. Not any more than putting on a dress and lipstick does.

I think most rational individuals understand this (perhaps you may even agree). But, there are some who seemingly just want to squirm and squeal like a gerbil stuck in Richard Gere's ass, while waving their virtue flags. That is their right.

I stand by my position on Levine.

Of course we're all entitled to stand by whatever we stand by, but some of us might differ.

I am a decidedly heterosexual male, happily "cisgendered" as the newfangled term specifies, and would never in my wildest dreams wish to be separated from the junk that makes me a cisgendered male, nor to stop enjoying the relation between that and the stuff that makes some other people female. But apparently unlike some, my difficulty in imagining the transsexual impulse leads me to guess just how serious and deeply important it really is. I can easily imagine all sorts of perversions and transgressions a person might commit, some kind of nice and some nothing but nasty, but this is not one. I suspect it's an inescapable choice beyond what someone who does not face it can truly understand. Even if you, for whatever reason, believe it is a sin, or that the result is not true to some ideal of humanity, and even if you believe it is a mistake, I think it is at the very least brave, and those with minds too small to understand such difficult, existential choices would do better if they just shut up.

I think it's as weird as can be. I don't understand homosexuality either. But it doesn't matter what I think. It's not my life to live.

I have two dozen nephews and nieces and two of my nephews are gay and one niece is a lesbian. Does it make me love them any less? No. I have a friend from college who is a transgender female. (I think I have that right. She was a male in college.) He was a pretty good friend then. Am I supposed to give up our friendship because of something that is irrelevant to why we were friends?

I've seen parents disown their children because of these issues. I can't imagine doing that.

Who said you should give up your friendship? I would be hesitant to refer to that person as "well-adjusted" and appoint them to a lead position on national health, however. Especially if they dodged questions about gender experiments on children, and sent seniors to die of Covid. If they were fat and obviously physically unhealthy, that might also make me skeptical of their decision-making on health matters.

Then again, some might look past all of that and anoint them an "Admiral", I suppose. Maybe even celebrate what an incredible "woman" the person is. Maybe some could even chime in about how men are even better at being women than women are.

Nonsense. Rachel Levine is an accomplished doctor, You are so freaked out about the sex change, you can't see beyond that. This isn't about COVID deaths either This is because this person is transgendered and you think it matters to the point that this person should not be respected.

A person who considers "split-tail" a term of endearment would be quite in character to consider "self-mutilating freak" a pleasantry. The path of friendship between AC and DC is strewn with stones. Don't give it up. Scatter them while she's not looking.

I didn't ask you about Larry Elder, frontrunner or not. I asked you about Caitlyn Jenner. Surely you must have some opinions about this trans-gender candidate.

I dunno...are your opinions based on political/policy reasons? It seems to me, considering your post describing Levine as an ugly, fat and obviously physically unhealthy, and mentally ill, fat, self-mutilating freaks who have a history of basically endorsing child abuse, that it's not her policies you are affronted by...especially considering you have yet to actually quote what her policies are.

I just summed it up, yet again:

There isn't much more to say on the matter, imo.

They can "live their lives" however they want. That doesn't mean I have to endorse and embrace their choices when it comes to matters that might affect the nation, or me personally.

If someone wants to cut their balls off and stitch them to their forehead, go for it, I suppose. But don't expect my endorsement for a role in public office. And don't expect me to refer to that person as "well-adjusted".

Sorry for the digression, but that last remark just flashes me back to the good old hippy dippy days when the Fugs were strumming their stuff in Bryant Park, and love was all around, and I recall one of Ed Sanders's musico-doggerel digressions which included the line "penis-flesh grafted smooth and purple to faces of lesbian angels." Plus ša change....

Ok, back to our regularly scheduled 21'st century nonsense....

You seem *really* hung up about the fact that she felt a woman strongly enough to alter genitals that she did not need.

Are they that big a part of your identity Warp12?

And do you feel the same way about warrior cultures where real manly man mutilate themselves to prove their manhood? In some cases including their genitals.

No one is asking you to endorse or embrace their choices or even refer to them at all...least of all Levine. Yet you feel it necessary to insult, denigrate and belittle her and other trans-people (along with women in general).

Is Levine demanding YOU or anyone get a sex change? And we're STILL waiting for you to tell us exactly what about her POLICIES you don't approve.

Give me a break. It isn't about someone "demanding" I get a sex change. This person is supposed to be some degree of "guiding light" for what is acceptable when it comes to matters of health...for the nation...and that includes children. I have been over this, repeatedly, since the beginning. But for some reason, some people only seem to care about waving their virtue flags.

Some are really hung up on me calling this person fat and ugly...as though they think I would only call a fat and ugly trans person that. I call it like I see it. There are certainly a lot of fat and ugly people out there. Levine is a fat, ugly, self-mutilating freak. Not exactly the type we generally consider as a tome of wisdom on national health (mental or otherwise). My issues with this person's thought process and actions, I have already clearly stated, as well.

No, you give US a break. You have NOT presented LEVINE'S POLICIES that you stated you disagree with. You dance all around it with nonsense like "this person's thought process and actions" which have to do with her PERSONAL LIFE AND MEDICAL CHOICES. If you think you're pulling the wool over anyone's eyes here, you're sadly mistaken. We see it for what it is: bigotry and misogyny.

Be assured, I would never expect your application of prejudice to be so limited. We must all remember that under the garish icing the cake is always there.

All hail "Admiral" Levine. The liberal ideal. What a "woman"!

Are you really this needy for attention?

Apparently so.

StdacyHS remarks that Warp12's apparent malice against Levin is not policy related, and the response is... a picture and a rock video, and a re-re-repeat of his disparaging, quote-strewn, content-free summary .

I think it kind of Warp12 to confirm Stacy's statement with such economy and precision.

I've grown so tired of repeating myself In this thread, about issues with Levine and job-worthiness that I figure I might as well have fun with it, now. Nobody is listening to that stuff...they just want to express mock-outrage that anyone might not fawn of over a trans person.

To those types, I say..."suck it". I didn't chop mine off.

Of course.

You wanted to demonstrate your stance that substance should take a back seat to intolerance and hate.

We get it.

LOL. I presented the "substance". Nobody bothered to read or listen.

So, now I am happy to focus on the more humorous aspects of how liberals never avoid an opportunity to wave their virtue flags.

Shine on, you crazy diamonds.

Sometimes people reveal things they didn't intend.

No You didn't. You just let your hatred, ignorance and bigotry spew forth.

Good on you.

To prove how tired you are of repeating you do the only reasonable thing, which is to repeat. Right. Got it.
