Buzzfeed and Their Little Privileges

Today I read a four day old article that was complete shallow bullshit. Actually the real shit is should be compared to is chickenshit, since chicken shitting is for cowards who amplify everyone else’s downfalls to make their own selves look grand. Go ask a big cisgendered male military veteran about chicken shit and the kind of cowards who are guilty of it.

Which brings me to the chickenshitter at hand. It is cowardly to write an exhaustive cultural commentary on the supposed insulting oppression of Tom Hank’s whiteness and post it in the millennial version of huffpost; which is the cesspool of narcissism gone to hell and resurrected. Especially when once again the one holding the bullhorn is a WHITE female, who must have like some aggravation towards her own dad that she is taking out on Mr. Hanks. Yes, I’m the other side of the coin..there are many things I could be writing about. Things like Syria, Russia, impending apocalypse. The ever growing mountain of crimes and dead bodies associated with the Clinton family and how the Bush family hates Donald Trump and no one seems to be making that connection. I could be writing about the large gathering of Native Americans that the media didn’t cover, who collectively forgave this nation and how this is a spiritual awakening and  we could really be making true progress in interracial relations. I could be writing about how I only just discovered that the story about Trump making fun of a disabled reporter was a complete fabrication, and how I felt “took” and made a fool of by the media.

But I’m not. I’m writing about my disgust for the kind of writers who write ten page blogs about “white dadness” and supposed “white privilege”. Call me triggered.

eye roll krysten ritter eyeroll bitch please kill me

I sent the article to a liberal friend who was also shocked. And angered. He defended Hanks “Tom Hanks is one of the most progressive people in the busniess, Buzzfeed will hurt for writing this”.
No.No, actually. No they wont. Even though the majority of comments on the article are confused and wondering what the point of the author was. Even though they are defensive for the their love of the beloved “dad” of actors. Buzzfeed wont suffer or take heat for their stupidity. Just like huffpost has never suffered for their stupidity and hypocrisy. Because this is what we have now. These are the “legit” arguments we are up against. Constantly. You see them in comment wars on youtube and sighing eye rolling offensive arguments against the slightest joke. It is the reason we have documentaries like “Can We Take A Joke” and institutions like FIRE. We are trying to preserve what little bit of free thought is left. I hear it every time I hear the kids at the table next to me in Starbucks talking in puffs of impassioned nothingness. I see it’s result and the uphill fight it causes  when a progressive lesbian professors ask me if I can explain to them the term “cisgender” because they heard their students using it and as educators they think it is the stupidest word to ever pollute the English language. I hear it when I hear actual arguments against the nineties television series “Friends” for its lack of diversity and unrealistic representation of New York City …since all the main characters were white. Never mind the show is called “Friends” and is based on five people and not entire college dorm or the entire city of New York. Never mind it was one of the first shows to feature lesbian relationships on prime time. Never mind that Ross was involved in more than one interracial relationship. Even the racially diverse shows of the past are accused of only being made “for white people”(Cosby /Different World). If millennials had their way all books would be banned and all past television shows and possibly music (except for Pink Floyd and Zepplin) would be trashed. We would all have to sign forms acknowledging our oppressive whiteness just to express any and every view. It never ends. We are guilty when we try to atone for our sins and we are guilty when we don’t. Guilty when we bathe in our guilt and guilty when we don’t. Tom Hanks is white. And a legend. Damn him and the fellow white people who went to watch his movies. AH-And the DADNESS of him. Screw all white dads and those of us who loved our white dads. It just goes on and on.

shut up sex and the city carrie bradshaw satc shaddup

These are the actual cultural issues that today’s cultural/social/political studies majors worry about. Seriously. And there is no safe room for any of us from the ilk. Liberals of old are not safe. The progressives born of the sixties and inspiring generations till the nineties are just as disrespected and spat upon as any middle aged conservative. Believe me, I have a very diverse group of friends or associations. When I say diverse I mean of various cultures and ethnic backgrounds. I mean of various age groups. I mean of differing sexual orientation. The gay republican, the libertarian female, the black Trump supporter, and the classically liberal non voting male who just wants everyone to think critically and objectively, will all get the same vile vitriol of speeches that has no life experience to back it up. Because everyone with an opinion that is different ( diverse) is “an outlier” and is shunned or ignored and made not to exist, while everyone else is up for scrutiny and long posts about privilege and comfort. That kind of post comes from the exact same “safe and privileged” place …yeah it’s called chickenshit.

The most liberal and progressive and politically outspoken man in Hollywood is guilty of nothing more than being a white man, and according to the little child of privilege that wrote the piece, he is only famous because he makes white people comfortable. Wow.

 

slay flip the bird i slay middle fingers beyonce

Millennials. Can we just send them on a permanent field trip to Mosul? Or Venezuela? See what kind of naval lint they can find to get on about there, when all their own privileges of speech and dedication mean absolutely nothing.

My Second published effort.

A few months ago I published on Elephant Journal . After a few futile attempts from me, I struck a chord with them again and they have published another one of my opinions. I like this site. Please check it out.

Remember the Past or Repeat it in November

Recently I started a new job..actually ninety two days ago I started a new job. Because it was a new job and my pay was not as consistent as it was with my previous job and the insurance was slightly more than my previous job, I procrastinated on enrolling in said benefits. I knew the time was near, and finally called them today. I missed the enrollment by two days. BUT I was told (because it is the law to inform your employees about the Marketplace even if they already know) if I needed health insurance before open enrollment, I could always go to the Marketplace under the Affordable Care Act… it might be a little more expensive than what we have but at least I would be covered”. Yes I already know the maze of insanity and expense that is the ACA but I think its hilarious every time it said JUST LIKE THAT. Given that I do make less than before I decided to swallow my pride and check it out…but the enrollment for them was up on Jan 31st..unless I’m pregnant or getting married.

And that is how the Government makes things easier for it’s citizens. And all the little Bernie Comrades want to implement that model in everything. They just don’t remember or have not experienced what we all did once the  ACA passed..nothing is free.

It was my fault and ill planning that caused me to call my providers two days late, but I shouldn’t be fined for it come tax season. Neither should anyone else.

Let the markets compete and prices will go down.

And that’s my two cents.

Illogic 

In the past few weeks I have seen some things that seriously defy any kind of logic. I really feel intellectually assaulted every time I see headlines on my iPhone, or take a scroll through my newsfeed. I unsubscribed to many new sites over the last year. I had too much personal grief to have to view and wear everyone’s personal offenses by technological default. But the reality is none of us have a safe space all the time. None of us, if we want live and engage. I’m not going into a long tirade about things, norms pointing out the obvious with long descriptive definitions to try to make people see things, I’m done with that if anyone wants it then go read The Matt Walsh blog. I’m done with the anger, I’m just tired.

I read this week that some mall in Los Angelas has banned champion boxer, Manny Pacquiao, a philanthropist and now a  a hopeful statesman to the Philippines for his ” hateful” opinion on marriage. So mom and pop bakeries have to make cakes, agree to potentially cater a gay wedding or they are shut down, sued and publicly shamed..but a huge mall in California can publicly shame and ban someone for their beliefs? I would say it is an aussault on small business, and hey maybe it is… I mean it’s the big corporations that are banning entire states now anyway and no one really cares what Muslim bakeries do and they have to be used for other narratives. (Oh and how about America trying to derail someone’s political campaign in the Phillipines ? I won’t go there…)

There was a college age white dude that got sentenced in North Korea for trying to take a piece of political propaganda out of the state – I forget the details about it but I do remember the whole write up on huffpost about white privilege and how the writer of said article said she didn’t feel sorry for the kid because you know it was retribution  for all the sins of white male privilege. To be sentenced … In North Korea with fifteen years hard labor…while she , in America, can writhe in anger writing about it. Wow. That makes as much sense as banning Israel in the name of women’s rights while Syria, Iraq and Iran whip, bludgeon, stone and forbid to divorce or drive, yeah women. Let that make your mind spin.

Today I read a headline ” by opposing Obama, the republicans created Trump”. Oh lord here we go again. By opposing and or disagreeing with Obama – we created all sins done in the past eight years. It was never the administration creating really bad karma because according to most news media, only white people disagree with the president. Other dissendents don’t exist, just like pro life women don’t exist to Gloria Steinhem ( or Hillary Clinton until ten minutes ago).

I mean I could say ” oh but opposing Bush created the muse of hope and change” but you see that would be one of those circular arguments based on emotion. See what I did there?

We don’t have news. We have instigating headlines that place emotions, angers and new definitions of what hate, crimes and sex are at top priority.

No Regard for Human Life part 2

A couple of years ago I wrote a blog post titled “No Regard for Human Life”. It wasn’t about police brutality be it real brutality, provoked brutality or imagined or set up brutality. It wasn’t about ISIS and their mass beheading, stoning or other heinous acts. None of those things were major headlines at the time. It was my expressed frustration over America’s public who would rise up for cats, dogs and other animal cruelties, yet the same people generally stayed silent over every day news stories about injustices and abuses to children. At the time there was a kidnapped autistic child being held hostage with an insane maniac underground. Some had told me the silent reaction to the story was because “we can’t do anything about it”.
Much has changed in the past couple of years. Now the attitude of “We cant do anything about it” has shifted to almost anything and everything being a trigger warning, a reason for protest, and if we are offended or an injustice has been done we feel the right to cause harm to others. What has not changed though is the core of my old post. A general disregard for human life. While we make hashtags and protest every time we feel injustice has been done, whether or not we know an injustice has been done, we still will ignore many other facets of society and ignore the homeless person on the street. Maybe on a psychological level we have to find one sector to champion so that we can deal with some guilt. As long as there are media fed protest and cities burning, white people will continue to put themselves on a cross that reads “privilege”. It’s fashionable these days. That might be another write up though, asking the psychological questions about our current culture…I read an interview yesterday with Camille Paglia and she said described today’s culture as “boring” because “no one is asking psychological questions”. Truly, the new political correctness, with its protection against trigger warnings and it’s blaming everything from eating meat to to getting a bus pass when you have forgotten your wallet on white privilege, is a different form of the old world puritanical system-without the God of course. This makes sense on psychological level, if you don’t regard human life on a high level, then you also don’t regard humanity and it’s virtues highly and you also won’t think that anyone is capable of giving without being guilted into it… or that the person receiving must have a “privilege”. You also may march for certain rights but ignore the basic biology of what is a human, and in your blind righteousness ignore life in front of you. 
When I heard about the Dentist and the lion, I heard it at work. I then read a petition email from an activist organization. The details given implied there was money given and the slaughter of the protected animal was premeditated. I was upset about it. Really. If this was premeditated, the hunter is evil and I have no sympathy for him. If it was accidental that he killed a loved and protected lion, then he is a moron. Either way he should be prosecuted. Fined. Maybe jailed. Should people be on twitter wishing and plotting his death? Is that even logical? What does that solve? It doesn’t matter, this is the new normal. Every time something happens-death upon that person is proclaimed. I think there is even a hashtag that says #killallmen. Bloggers both conservative and liberal get death threats or wishes through emails. It would be harmless but it also is a new normal to shut down peoples businesses and because social media reaches so far, global movements can harass a single person for a short time (because our attention span is short here in America). If anyone ever paid attention they would notice that usually, while circuses are circling about an issue, an outrage, or anything that captures our need to be needed or entertained, there are other more important outrages happening. Things that could use all that passion we are using up. Most of the time we don’t want to know though, because it requires much more thought, consideration and maybe even changing how we look at things. Was I upset about the lion-hell yes I was upset. I was enraged. A few weeks ago, I was upset and almost cried over a man I didn’t even know who I heard was killed and hidden in cement by his family for lottery money he won. When I expressed how disturbing that story was, someone said “why?…you weren’t the one killed and put in cement” and so goes how many see themselves and others “it ain’t you so dont worry about it”. “It ain’t your people” “It’s not YOUR body” etc. etc. etc.
Let’s get real for a few minutes and look at some hard things. Planned Parenthood is under some serious investigation, for what many people have been trying to tell others for years. When I was little, there was the constant debate about the “glob of cells” and how abortion was not killing an actual baby. Then there was the debate about “when life began”. Now nobody really talks about those things. Since I became an adult I hear women my age and significantly younger defend abortion rights vehemently and angrily. They repeat everything that has been imprinted on  them by their feminist teachers who were imprinted on by Gloria Steinhem. The only way I have learned to have these conversations is to not have them. Ask a question, ask one that makes the rhetoric stop and uncomfortable reality set in. Once, on Tumblr, there was some reblogged images of embryos and partially formed human babies on plates and a man seemed to be eating them. In social media fashion, the young users reblogged over and over virtually screaming for the mans demise, for him to be turned in, the disgusting atrocity of it all! A simple google search and link back from the pictures revealed this was an Asian artist and these were not actual unborn human infants. I made a post about the reality and that this artist was actually a genius-he made people react to the vision of a partially formed baby -outside the womb- being desecrated. It’s only a desecration or an abuse, or bloodthirsty or callous, if we can SEE it. See what they did there.
The videos being uncovered about Planned Parenthood answer every question we ever really had about the caring nature of this organization should make us inquire as to why it funding from multi million dollar corporations, we could even go as far as to question  why a cure for breast cancer is not acknowledged and the Susan G Komen foundation has a full monopoly on the month of October ( Pink October is in bed with PP if you didn’t know). While we are at it, let us repeat over and over the history of PP and how Margaret Sanger was a white supremacist whose religion was eugenics. This is what PP was birthed in, so while we are all debating about the confederate flag (or watching others debate about it) we ignore that the whole premise of PP was to eradicate the black race, and the Jewish race, and poor soldiers and probably anyone else that did not fit the quota of perfection that Margaret Sanger envisioned. I guess we can ignore that not so hidden history because Sanger was a woman. Women can do anything as long as they aren’t conservative or don’t sleep with Republicans (according to Jessica Valenti). I mean really, women can get men fired from their jobs by accusation. We can get free birth control most of the time. Being a women in America IS a privilege, the white feminist just aren’t in the least bit grateful for it-they are too busy demonizing Camille Paglia, Christina Hoff Somers, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Look at the diversity of those three women and see the blind hypocrisy of third wave feminism.
We get on major movements for as long as the talking heads are spinning it, but this is one they do not want to spin, they don’t want to talk about it except to talk about if it is reflective of the entire organization. My questions are still the same because it is not really about PP to me, it is about the desensitization to images of death, it is about the desensitization of women to their own biological instincts. It is about a society that would rather debate about who is privileged, who is entitled yet agree that the right of abortion is fundamental and will still campaign their little hearts out for the candidate that promises their right and their daughters right…all while they continue the desensitization. It is about our short termed shock about these things, as if it were just a new episode on Game of Thrones and next week we will be over it and waiting on the next shock. It’s peoples willingness to get angry about grey areas that aren’t obvious, yet their generic and biased answers to very clear and bold stories. An autistic child is locked in a room by himself for “Acting out” , shrug and argue about “these problem children”. We’ve all heard these apathetic answers to atrocities. A child is shot in the stomach because he was playing with a toy gun? Ban toy guns and have that conversation about gun control again. A little Native American girl got tazed by police? Well…you know how rough those people are out there… ISIS drowned men in a cage, threw homosexuals from a roof and stoned women adn beheaded thier husbands….well you know those videos probably aren’t real and look at Westboro Baptist…. Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts? Baby body parts? Well…what else are they going to do with them… Forget all of what this actually means-we don’t want to know that. It means in all our “freedom of choice” we were actually getting took and used and abused. It means in all our marches for black lives matter, we were part of keeping black lives at a spiritual and economic devastation and our support for the abortion industry and our ideological shifting of the definition of life was part of that plan, devastating all of our senses. It means we ignore any woman that doesn’t espouse the “right to choose” and then we cover up the stories of emotional devastation after these “procedures”. It means we have to face the fact that the real possibility that if this heinous of a thing has been going on, then it is most likely that every other thing that has been “suspected” is also true. Such as sterilization. Yeah they used to do it in secret now they make women think its a good idea.

Man that lion though, he was innocent in a protected environment-where he thought he was safe. Someone came in, cut off his head and skinned him. Maybe it is an imprinting from our youth. Animal cartoons. Movies. The Lion King. The environmental and endangered species messages we got growing up. While babies usually were the aggravating noise -cute but in the way, hard to love. Love for a child takes sacrifice-we saw it all the time. A child melts a heart. Some angel for a hardened soul. Special but for someone else. Animals though…everyone loves animals. Animals are innocent and helpless and love unconditionally. That is the hidden message. Children no one has time for, cause problems, take more time and I’ve even heard it said “it would be selfish to bring one into this world”. So maybe that is what it all is about-we think we are all better off dead, but we won’t kill ourselves-just our future. Yeah I was upset over the lion…I was shocked and silent and fuming for probably half and hour. I was upset because I am a human being and it is natural to be upset, but I was already upset over the many shared posts about the Planned Parenthood scandal that no one wants to talk about and when they do they don’t talk about it as a reality but a conspiracy. I was already upset about the indifferent view about this now “non issue” that people pretend to not have an opinion on because they are ” not into politics”.  I was blindsided with glaring reality that every issue right now that has been drummed into our sights is ever present in Planned Parenthood and yet it is dressed up and sold as “reproductive FREEDOM” but if we go outside the womb none of these mentalities are acceptable. Out of sight , out of mind. It’s not out of sight anymore.

The Puppet is Possessed

I’ve been really nice. For what seems like an entire reign. The elections of 2012 really shocked everyone didn’t it? I remember the gasps of disbelief, like how did this happen?? REALLY…how did this happen? I had been very active in posting voter fraud stories, stories about voting machines that were rigged, the hijacking of Ron Paul’s efforts and even the way Fox News undermined Paul’s campaign. So I wasn’t really shocked. Only people not paying attention could be shocked. What shocks me is that there is still people not paying attention, and more and more people are paying attention and quite frankly they are scared to death. Politician have always lied, that is an old joke. President’s have always had their public smiles and secret lives. Nothing new there. There is usually something that can be found to at least redeem their efforts though (unless it is Andrew Jackson or Jimmy Carter). I mean, Bill was a funny guy. Bush visited broken soldiers. Some have even attempted to change the system, or save the people from that system (see conspiracy theories about JFK assassination and the Federal Reserve, and the repeated attempts on Reagan’s life). I think we have had some men, that even with their faults had some kind of scruples that didn’t allow them to completely sell us out. Like we used to have upper military men who “knew” things, and most likely had plans to thwart evil plans…until they were purged from the military or died mysterious deaths. But interesting about the President’s.. notice anytime they try to go against “what they are supposed to do” they get shot at. In the past we usually see a lame second term, like they don’t even try. Not this time baby. This second term /siege has been overwhelmingly productive. Every day it is something isn’t it. First it was the various czars and government programs, and government regulations. The biggest of course being ObamaCare. I have not met one person who has said “Gee that ObamaCare really made my life easier”. Not one. The businesses that are having to implement the thing (which no one even wants, we like our Blue Cross thank you) say it is a racket, so much red tape and paper work that they HAVE to give out in a proposal packet. Then they have to assure the workers that no they are not being forced to take it, they just to be given the packet…which then goes in the garbage. Ironic, considering this President also is supposed to all about the environment. I got really tired of hearing things like “oh but Obama is just cleaning up the mess that Bush made”…”oh he has to work with what he has got”…”oh but nobody is helping him they just want to fight him”. Gag me with a spoon. I’m done. Let’s all be done with the preschool narrative of “let’s all be nice and allow others to take out toys because we are trying to share and that kid makes us feel guilty when we don’t”. It is stupid and we look like idiots who are saying we really don’t know when we are being assaulted, because someone has not given us permission to feel abused. Like a spouse that manipulates and controls and lies like they were drinking water, and we think we deserve it because well in the past we have been so bad and you know “he just doesn’t understand ..he has some issues he needs to work out”. Clearly. The puppet is possessed.

Now we have the Obamanet, and anyone that thinks that won’t go through-after nearly two terms of shock and disbelief, well I have ocean front property in Utah for you. Everyone should watch “The Internets Own Boy” Aaron Schwartz, the genius who was the reason SOPA didn’t go through…apparently someone passionate about politics and change, and a technological genius “killed himself”. Yeah that property is waiting for you.. All you Ayn Rand haters, we are living in Atlas Shrugged.
All over the world, Christian people are being killed. Slaughtered. Lined up and beheaded.This is not new, those of us who keep up and care about people have known this, it is just reaching its full evil. And this time no one seems to want to stop it or even use it as an excuse to do something else. Remember a few years ago when you could look through the new healthcare insurance on what type of accidental death was covered? They may have taken that down now, but in it listed under “not covered” was beheading. Not decapitation, as in a car wreck, but beheading. Obama stands up there and acts like this is no big deal. ISIS also throws homosexuals off roofs, and stones women. But we can’t call it Islam extremism and we can’t call it terrorism, hell we can’t even call it ISIS anymore. Don’t react, don’t react, don’t get upset and don’t you dare get on your high horse… because of the crusades and colonization. You know what I hear in all that? I see our President basically snickering and saying “yeah you’re gonna get yours” and tsk tsk on you for not seeing you deserve it, you selfish righteous nation.. welcome to the new colonization. That is what I hear and that is what I see. I also see it in silly youtube trolls, and commentators all over the internet who are so desensitized by their video games, and tv shows and empty academic conditioning that they have no respect or empathy for life. They will say things like “oh the holy wars…people killing each over an imaginary friend”. When it happens here, it really is not going to matter to the killer what you believe or what you think, anyone paying attention can see this. Even the libertarians have begun to shut me out, with their big write ups about how the way to handle all  this is to eradicate all religion. Ok. And then the bad guys still win,see North Korea, China, past Russia. There is a lot of things that a lot of people do not know. For instance. Muhammad did indeed behead people, have multiple child wives as young as six years old, he did mandate that Jews and Christians be killed. This is not an ugly distortion it is a fact. I have even read it like this “any Muslim who denies this is blaspheming”.. which is probably why the only Arabs who are going nuts and saying the President is aiding and abetting the situation, are secular Muslims, atheist or Christian Arabs. This is not an excuse for any empirical wrong done by Christianity, all of us who actually know God know there is a difference in political Christianity, and knowing God. This has been through throughout history, people just don’t talk about those Christians because they didn’t make an empirical name for themselves. Missionaries who came before empire were story tellers, who assimilated with people wherever they went. They didn’t go for government or wealth, and the people they went to worshiped and lived God in their own cultures ways. This always happened after many widespread prophecies would come to these people predicting it. This is interesting because this is exactly the way things happen in the Bible.The ones who came with the empire aided the”convert or die and its Gods will” themes for the purpose of Roman rule, or British rule or whoever rule.No one ever talks about the in between mission times. I think they don’t want us to know. We are either for the empire or we hate it so much we deny everything and wait on the next take over. All of that is a different blog and discussion though and this is simply a statement that our discomfort is normal. It is not normal to act like if someone is intent upon your demise that you can give them a job and throw up a peace sign and all will be well. All is not well. All is not fine. From the inside we are being gutted. Primed for the outside attack. It may be some kind of domestic street war brought on by economic or racial manipulation, or religious triggers. I think personally, that ISIS cells are probably here. Hey they were leaving Paris to join the jihad, we probably have them here this is just reality…and since we cannot be worried about this we can assume no one in the government cares nor will stop them. We have messed with outside nations for so long, participating in chess games and they are all about to call check mate. Figure that out. So everyone who has always thought, while in the comfort of living here, that we would be better off if we were like other countries..welcome because you are not in America anymore. She is gone, it’s over and she isn’t coming back. Our time is over, and those who recognize this get your spirit ready, know who you are and who God is. Know that in the end, whenever the end is everything will be reconciled to the creator. The insane who build empires and make wars and try to take the place of God, cannot last forever. The President is and has been a puppet for years….but this one is a willing puppet and he is possessed.

How the non ISIS deal with apostasy 

Transgender….Children….

   Don’t you love it when you go to youtube to watch that new video from Luke Bryan and in the side bar you see a title “Living a Transgender Childhood”. Because you know, childhood is a time of learning and exploring, so if you have “always known” you were actually born in the wrong body…you know, for the last EIGHT years of your life, then it should be chiseled in stone and you should therefore and henceforth be raised as your opposite peers.

   Now that I have that intro off my chest, let me say, that yes I have heard about this “phenomenon” for a couple of years now. When Chaz Bono, renamed herself both in name and in her gender identity (no longer living as a lesbian, she is now considered a straight man…she was simply born in the wrong body) there was a special on tv about transgender “children”…children. I heard about it, from a friend at work. Who are we to judge? Well…I wont judge a full blown adult who wants to shoot themselves up with hormones of either gender or who wants to severe parts of their body-that’s between you and your spouse and your eternal well being…(unless you are one of those people who feels you were “born” to live as a partially paralytic and you want to have your spinal cord clipped, cause I’m judging the hell out of you )

Julia Stiles, as Kat, glare look gif

But if you are a child and your parents are choosing to raise you as you see fit..well I’m still not judging you I am judging the society that we live in. The one that removes a child from parents who smoked weed one night while the child was asleep..and the child died in foster care. The one that removes kids all the time and they die in foster care. The one that wont let kids pray in school and is less and less “tolerant” of religion at home but the same one that fosters pumping kids with synthetic drugs when they are three and telling them they have things like “gender identity disorder” at eight years ol

   This special was on nine year old “Josie” who was born as Joey. When Joey was three (let the age sink in) he was diagnosed as depressed and ADHD. He was put on fourteen different medications…fourteen…including PROZAC. A couple of years into this troubled child’s life his doctor noticed the way he was playing with some toys, he was playing as a girl would play. The doctor said he thought Joey had “gender identity disorder”. GID is a disorder among many identity disorders, however these disorders generally arise when points of life during growth are not met or developments are not made. I think this couple should have gotten another get go from the start of fourteen different depression medications. They were on a military base though, and there was limited options. Still. 

   They raised Joey as a girl and had his name changed legally to Josie. Josie came off medications, slept well at night and was happy. Now Josie is nine and she is eager to change completely. Sex change operations are illegal before the age of eighteen, but there can be blockers to slow puberty and certain specialists will inject her with estrogen so that she will “be like the other girls” as much as possible. This is irreversible and could render her (him) sterile, should he ever decide that he wants to be male again. The doctor in Tuscon who says that transgender children are not mentally ill, they are legitimate alignment issues between their body and their real self. However, it does take time to determine who is and who is not truly a transgender. It was too early to put poor Josie on estrogen…she is not even yet maturing as a boy. In other words, nature has not taken its course, so we cannot screw around with it.

   In response to arguments from other pediatric specialists who say that a nine-twelve year olds are not mature enough to make these medical decisions, the transgender specialists says “well they are making the decision to kill themselves, their suicide rate is rising, and we have to look at that”. The mother who has dressed her little girl and fought ridicule for her sons right to be a little girl, agrees. “Whatever it takes for her to have peace, I would rather have a healthy little girl than a dead son”. 

    Well….I have to sympathize, but the fact that this mother was absolutely surprised when Josie said “maybe I’m a boy on the inside and a girl on the outside”…”would you be OK with that mom”. Mom was shocked, and almost cried “of course honey, I’ll love you no matter who you are,only you know who you are”. She could not believe her child may alter their life in order to please her…..

     SHE/HE IS NOT EVEN TEN YEARS OLD!!!! ( and is biologically a SON so you know there is always that maternal/son bond going on underneath). After it all is said and done though, Josie still wants to be Josie. She wants to be beautiful and have all the pains of girlhood… and as long as she has peace that is what matters to her parents. She has a psychologist and doctors mostly on her side and there is a whole community of other transgender children for her support. Or its the parents of transgender children.

    You know, I come from a huge family. I am oldest of six, and four of those are boys. FOUR. I can attest that most children, if not all children play with the opposite genders’ toys. Some very macho men take issue with this, and make a huge deal, and giving their sons complexes before they even know what the word complex means. I had a lunch box full of matchbox metal cars. My brothers all played with my Barbies, much to my dads chagrin. After a point they are kidnapping Barbie and GI JOE has gotta save her. Then they start drawing on Barbie, what Mattel didn’t give her-and that’s when they are taken away. Every toddler wants their mom to paint their nails, but that ends pretty much at three. When I was a little girl we all played like we were getting married, and we married each other-because hey the boys weren’t gonna play that. We said things like “when I grow up and am a man I want to be a fire fighter”, but today, when kids say things like that the adults take them seriously and ask probing questions that they cannot understand and the answers CAN be led. If we make an issue out of these silly things, is it not imposing one or other extreme? Extreme #1″YOU ARE NOT A GIRL!!” so boy thinks something must be wrong with him and continues to think so if he grows up and doesn’t like sports. 

Extreme #2 “Oh honey, do you want to be a girl? OKAY, you are now a girl!”

And for issues like this there are all kids of yes men…

Like those idiot psychologist who stand behind “Body Integrity Disorder” (there is a blog on that for those who like to read my rants).

   I hope Josie lives a happy life and when she/he gets out into the world they continue to do so. I really do. It is not easy being a girl, baby doll-believe me.
