Bully! for the Bossy

by Brad Nelson2/27/19

Kira Davis has an article at Townhall.com that is instructional: Misbehaving Women: How the Transgender Movement Is Silencing Women

One of the girls who recently lost a race to a boy who was pretending to be a girl said:

I fully support and am happy for these athletes for being true to themselves. They should have the right to express themselves in school

One commenter cuts through the clutter with a “can’t have your cake and eat it too” comment:

Spare us, toots. As long as this girl, and you, are “perfectly fine” letting this preposterous nonsense define who and what you are. Who and what those boys preposterously “identify” as, you are part of the problem and deserve no sympathy. You need to stand astride liberalism and yell “stop”. Your willingness to tolerate it emboldens it. You know how it works:

That’s the issue in a nutshell. Yet another columnist writing “What a crazy world it is!” while never opposing the craziness (and actually being a part of it).

And here’s why I support men-pretending-to-be-women competing in women’s sports. Another commenter writes:

Transgender Movement Is Silencing (Bossy Feministic) Women?
The enemy of my enemy is my friend?

So….if you support the normalizing (or at least “the tolerated”) of the abnormal, how can you ever be against the latest abnormal nonsense that is being pushed as normal (and to be tolerated)? You’ve already conceded the argument to the squeaky wheels who need only squeak.

As for Davis’ notion that once again men are defining women, another commenter shows the vacuousness of this argument:

“They [women] were expected to behave themselves.”

I remember when that statement was true not only of women, but of everybody in this country (including kids). The fact that the democrats didn’t like that expectation is not only what’s been empowering the transgenders (and the entire LGBTQ “community”), but has led us to all kinds of societal division and cultural rot (“Black Lies Matter” and “Antifa” and snowflakes in general).

As a man, I have never had anyone put me down for being a man. LOL

Let alone for being white. LOL

Or for believing that being heterosexual is natural genetics. LOL

Or for being a Christian, for believing right and wrong are not determined by myself or by people who don’t even know what gender they are or should behave as. LOL

It’s so politically fashionable on the left to hate white, male, heterosexual Christians that women don’t have to worry … soon enough, it’ll be illegal to be a white, male, heterosexual Christian.

The problem with the left is that everything they think, do and say is seen from a one sided perspective: “It’s us nuts against everybody else! and other nuts, too!”

Conclusion: It’s not the transgender movement that’s silencing women. That’s just a symptom. The cause is leftist (democrat party) lunacy (mind rot), which is working hard overtime to silence everyone who isn’t a politico/moral nutcase.

  • Brad Nelson : Good article: Life on Mars but Not in the Womb: https://townhall.com/columnists/brennalewis/2019/04/13/life-on-mars-but-not-in-the-womb-n2544697
  • Timothy Lane : This is similar to the idea that leftists would punish anyone who killed an unborn pet (or wild animal). Of course, vegans don't eat eggs.
  • Brad Nelson : Notre Dame is burning.
  • Timothy Lane : KFZ and I have discussed this under the "Breaking News", which it certainly is. Indeed, heartbreaking news.
  • Brad Nelson : Worth a read: https://www.redstate.com/brandon_morse/2019/04/16/monty-python-actors-come-attack-bbc-head-righteously-return-fire/
  • Kung Fu Zu : At least a couple of the Monty Python crew fought back. What needs to be said is all this diversity crap has its origin in racial resentment. It is a fact that white guys have, by far, been the most successful group over the last several hundred years and the non-white racists resent it. Sadly, the white guys have been conditioned to feel guilt for their success and too many have fallen for the diversity rubbish.
  • Timothy Lane : Too bad Gilliam's comments weren't made by Eric Idle, who played "Stanley called Loretta" in Life of Brian, a comedy that like so many could never be done today as originally written. No doubt that's where he got the idea. This isn't the first time the Monty Python crowd have fought back against political correctness.
  • Brad Nelson : Funny thing is, most of their comedy was fairly left-of-center. And we know, for instance, that Terry Jones is a liberal flake. Cleese is probably the most reasonable amongst them. But when they are outside the mainstream of liberalism, that shows you how nutty things have become. But even people such as Monty Python share some blame for greasing the skids in this direction.
  • Kung Fu Zu : Funny that they don't have a "Muhammed Python" comedy group anywhere in the Middle East or elsewhere making a film titled, "The Life of Mo."
  • Timothy Lane : Islam used to have a reputation for scholarship, though how much was by Muslims rather than resident kafirs is a interesting question. Little of it dealt with the outside world. But for centuries the maxim of the final (Arab Muslim) destroyer of the library at Alexandria has become the Muslim attitude. Whatever reflects the Koran is superfluous, whatever conflicts with it is pernicious. Best not to take any chances.
  • Brad Nelson : Great minds think alike, Mr. Kung.
  • Brad Nelson : God bless Jack Fowler . It’s not often you find a writer at NRO with a pulse: https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/screw-york-yankees/
  • Timothy Lane : I hadn't heard about that, but I suppose it's no surprise for a New York team. It's pretty sad given that I've been a fan since 1960 (I started rooting for the Houston Astros in 1964). I recall that MAD, in doing an article on singers at prisons after Johnny Cash did so, features Kate Smith at a Georgie chain gang.
  • Brad Nelson : All I know is that I've had that tune in my head all morning. === Yankees fans, if they object, must make their protest heard via withholding dollars.
  • Brad Nelson : Best Mayor Pete comment that I’ve run across so far: “Stand behind Pete. You know he will stand behind you.”
  • Kung Fu Zu : I find Mayor Pete's last name unfortunate. It sounds like "Butt Gig" which is appropriate given his inclinations.
  • Brad Nelson : Rimshot
  • Timothy Lane : I call him Battygeek. Perhaps his "stand behind you" shows what his particular preferred sexual act is. But interpreting it can be messy. Does he prefer fellatio (and thus didn't see the implications) or anal sodomy (and thus meant the double entendre)? For that matter, does he (as a professed Christian) prefer to give or to receive?
  • Kung Fu Zu : Aaahhh! Now I have some very ugly pictures impressed upon my mind.
  • Brad Nelson : All of you would have been fired from National Review Online by now. As for here, I'm considering promotions.
  • Kung Fu Zu : I love it when a Christian minister stands by the Bible.
  • Kung Fu Zu : https://www.wnd.com/2019/04/franklin-graham-schools-mayor-pete-on-homosexuality/
  • Kung Fu Zu : Phony Christians often say something like what Butt Gig did e.g. the core of Christianity is love for one another or regard for others, but this is a lie and obfuscation. The core of Christianity is the belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and mankind's redeemer.
  • Timothy Lane : Perhaps this is the time to repeat the joke that ended Mark Steyn's NR/NRO career. How do you make a fruit cordial? Be nice to him -- or else. The last 2 words were his addition.
  • Brad Nelson : Yes, full credit to Graham. The point of Christianity is not to embolden and embellish people’s appetites. It’s to prune man’s many base desires to fit a higher calling.
  • Kung Fu Zu : A Takimag article on Mayor Buttplug, as the writer calls him. More proof that the left is insane.
  • Kung Fu Zu : https://www.takimag.com/article/can-mayor-buttplug-save-the-democrats/
  • Timothy Lane : I don't see how someone who campaigns on the basis of an invented feud with Mike Pence over his homosexuality can be "not gay enough". No doubt he'd use the full power of the Behemoth to punish Masterpiece Cakeshop and Chick-fil-A for heresy.
  • Brad Nelson : LOL. Mayor Buttplug. Gotta hand it to Jim Goad at Taki’s Magazine for coining that one. They used to talk of “the great white hope.” Is this the “great sodomy hope”? Great article — like Ann Coulter with a little more cheek.
  • Timothy Lane : Well, they already had the Great Black Hope (Barry Zero) and the Great Female Hope (the Fire Witch, who of course didn't work out too well), so I guess the Great Sodomite Hope is next. Or the Great Illegal Alien Hope, maybe. One of the Jihadettes could be the Great Islamist Hope.
  • Kung Fu Zu : Yes, I find Jim Goad and a couple other writers at TakiMag are excellent. They are not afraid to call a spade a spade.
  • Brad Nelson : There were some political branders Not of Biden or Beto or Sanders “Don’t kiss all the babies Or play to old ladies. Tell ‘em at other men’s bottoms he ganders”
  • Kung Fu Zu : There once was a mayor named Pete; who had a small fetish for feet, and parts of boys' anatomy, exploring where he shouldn't be, but for brain-dead left wingers that's neat.
  • Timothy Lane : Nice poems. Meanwhile, there has been further news on the Boeing 737 Max. It turns out there was some warning light that they made optional, and some airlines (such as Southwest) thought was included automatically. This could be an embarrassment for the FAA for approving it -- and a much larger one for Boeing. The link is:https://hotair.com/archives/2019/04/29/wsj-boeing-turned-off-malfunction-alerts-737-max-didnt-tell-airlines-faa/
  • Brad Nelson : LOL, Mr. Kung. I'm a particularly favorite of almost-rhymes. I love the "anatomy" and "he shouldn't be."
  • Brad Nelson : Pay extra for a system that would alert you for when that system effed up. And, by the way, we’re deactivating that system that you thought you’d already paid for. A human and public relations nightmare. Girl power behind this? Or men with too many slide rules and not enough sense?
  • Timothy Lane : No doubt we'll find out, if nothing else when Boeing faces civil suits over the 2 crashes, which is well night a certainty now. Unless they just pay out whatever is asked, since I doubt any jury will ever acquit them.
  • Kung Fu Zu : The Boeing situation is possibly a classic case of inspectors being too close to those they inspect. If the article can be believed, not only did Boeing's actions border on a cover-up, but the FAA's actions display either incredible laxity or collusion. Either way, this incident has caused great damage to the American aviation industry. The damage will be long lasting. I personally don't believe a civil cause against Boeing will be very effective. The company can afford the millions it will hav
  • Brad Nelson : My guess is that structural faults or bad maintenance (or no maintenance) has been the fault of most airline crashes. We have clearly entered the realm of software fatalities. People will want to know if their plane is Mac or PC.
  • Brad Nelson : Give. Crap: https://www.takimag.com/article/the-soiled-streets-of-san-francisco/
  • Timothy Lane : So now San Francisco has become the Brown City. Though the same can be said about Seattle, I suppose, and most likely Portland as well. That's the price people pay for living in Ecotopia.
  • Kung Fu Zu : If those expensive condos and apartments would open their lobbies to the S.F. homeless just think how more comfortable life would be for the poor. Of course, the rich lefties who live in such places might not appreciate this.
  • Timothy Lane : Especially having to walk through piles of literal crap to reach their rooms. It makes me think of a scene from John Brunner's The Squares of the City.
  • Brad Nelson : It’s interesting that so many of the piles are either right in the street and even on the doorstep of City Hall and the police department. It would seem this could be the vagrant equivalent of making a political statement. What they are protesting no one seems to know.
  • Timothy Lane : Perhaps they're "rebels without a cause". Who really needs a reason to be angry today? Outrage is so delicious that any excuse will do -- or none at all. And when you have drug-addled homeless people, who knows, anyway?
  • Brad Nelson : At least they give a crap.
  • David Ray : Lord Nelson,
  • David Ray : I'll have my PC soon & would like to post another article. Be about a month from now.
  • Timothy Lane : We'll be looking forward to it.
  • Brad Nelson : David. I'm very much looking forward to it. Keep those little grey cells churning!

About Brad Nelson

I like books, nature, politics, old movies, Ronald Reagan (you get sort of a three-fer with that one), and the founding ideals of this country. We are the Shining City on the Hill — or ought to be. However, our land has been poisoned by Utopian aspirations and feel-good bromides. Both have replaced wisdom and facts.

    In essence, if you play the gender-bending game, it may not always bend your way.

  2. Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

    It would be hilarious if it weren’t so damaging to our culture and society. As it is, it is simply the manifestation of the moral and mental rot which has spread throughout the West.

      For once, Mr. Kung — no…make that twice…maybe three times….okay, almost always — I agree with you.

      Still, if you can’t beat them, join them. Believe you me, I’d be standing up, cheering, getting mustard all over my jacket, in sportsman-like (sportsperson-like?) enthusiasm for the men-pretending-to-be-women athletes. You go, girl!

      That one chick writer almost had a point when she said that, once again, men were defining what women could do. But she was just not smart enough to see her own biases. This one is precisely about liberal women deciding what fake men can do (although surely there are some beta-males in the food chain who don’t stand up against this stuff either). Women could put a stop to this in a heartbeat simply by saying “no” and/or refusing to compete against these fake women.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        Beta males indeed. Note that the article mentioned that the various fake women dominating these contests competed until recently as men — with mediocre results. Then they figured out the easiest way to win a trophy was to pretend to be a women and compete against the physically weaker sex.

        • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

          There once was a fleet-footed man
          Who would run just as fast as he can
          But amongst all his peers
          He was far in the rear
          So he altered his first name to Jan

          • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

            That was good for a belly laugh.

          • Timothy Lane says:

            Excellent, though I think “ran” provides better scansion than “would run”. (I also would use “among” rather than “amongst”, but that’s a matter of word choice, not poetry)

            • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

              Some sacrifices must be made to the English language in order for these things to work out. Get into the spirit of things. Instead of nitpicking mine, do something creative and post it here.

  3. Timothy Lane says:

    It was an interesting article, but it’s true that Davis’s open objection was to the female victims of transgender competition was to their being silenced. The proper objection — to men claiming to be women competing against actual women — was implicit.

    Incidentally, I wonder what would happen if female gymnasts claimed to be men and then competed against them. Would they take all the awards? Would the men be as mum about it as the women? (Of course they would. Objecting would be even more politically incorrect than it would be for women.)

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      Incidentally, I wonder what would happen if female gymnasts claimed to be men and then competed against them. Would they take all the awards?

      You know, that’s an interesting idea. That is the one area where the events aren’t based upon brute strength. Find me one man who could do what Mary Lou Retton could do on the balance beam, parallel bars, or floor exercise. (On the rings, a woman could indeed not compete.)

      Maybe the inevitable solution is just to have men’s, women’s, and weird0 divisions.

  4. Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

    I read the article and it is truly a stupid one. The first and last paragraphs are the type of nonsense one hears from the left, but I don’t know why anyone with half a brain would write such rubbish.

    In the first paragraph, the writer states:

    There was a time in this nation not too long ago when girls and women had no public voice. When they spoke about inequity or abuse they were told to shut up. They were publicly shamed into submission. They were called b*tches, nags, over-dramatic scolds. Women were what men said they were and were expected to act, dress and think accordingly. They were expected to behave themselves.

    I find that to be something of a typical strawman argument, the type of which leftists often use. Men and women have called each other names for a long time and most of the time this had nothing to do with one’s “voice.” But the writer did unconsciously(?) tell the truth in the last sentence. Behaving oneself is something leftists and libertarians have a great deal of trouble with.
    Of course, for a society to function half-way decently, “behaving oneself” is important. But don’t let facts get in the way of polemics.

    I thought the last paragraph was particularly stupid.

    Everyone should feel free to live as they choose and as who they choose, but not at the expense of the freedom of another. Women have fought too hard for too long for the ability to excel on our own terms. It is inconceivable that in 2019 we are once again in a place where that right is being threatened.

    I find the assertion of the first sentence to be questionable, but let’s stipulate it as true. They still do not have the right to expect anyone else should agree with said lifestyle, much less pamper and give way to the (often) insane lifestyle choices made by many mentally unbalanced people.

    This fits as good here as anywhere. Gillette has doubled-down on stupid: Dear Gillette: Morbid Obesity Is Not Beautiful And Only 0.6% Of American Adults Identify As Transgender

    This was the only article worth reading on my morning skim. The really funny parts are the comments and tweets about this, including:

    “Slay the day? If she don’t get her weight under control it’s only a matter of time before the day slays her. It is incredibly irresponsible to promote such a unhealthy lifestyle.”

    “Gillette: The best a tran can get…”

    “All those damn “rules” (heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, osteoporosis, low life expectancy and quality) who are they to determine what’s right? I’m sure she self-identifies as slim.”

    “Maybe she’s slender neutral.”

    “99% sure the woman in the photo is on an anti-depressant and/or statins. I have several loved ones that are obese . . . It is NOT healthy. Supportive is fine. Encouragement is cruel.”

    “It’s ok to be fat but it’s not ok to leave natural hair growth on your skin so do remember to shave that off with Gillette Venus.”

    “Slender neutral.” “The best a tran can get.” Pure gold. And great point about “Okay to be fat but you must cut the hair off your legs.”

    Meanwhile, I did find a way to wipe more Proctor & Gamble out of my life. I’ve settled on Jergens unscented soap (love it…this is by no means a downgrade) instead of Ivory bath soap. And Palmolive instead of Ivory dish soap. Anything I can find with P&G on it will never be bought again. Ever. If I can help it. They have long tentacles, of course.
