    As my 86 year old father in law said, "If you got a dick, then you're not a chick!" If they haven't chopped the knob, i'll refer to them as "he/him." If they have chopped the knob, i'll refer to them as "Limitles."

    I feel reassured that conservatives like Druff will support rightwing fascists dismantling our democratic institutions to prevent us from having to use other people’s preferred pronouns.

    Yea everyone should be very respectful of Pronouns


    My understanding is the whole point of pronouns is to make trannies freaks and weirdos feel welcomed. If we're honest besides white people they're the only group in America that's really marginalized and routinely discriminated against.

    I’m going to call them “he” if it looks like a guy to me, or “she” if it looks like a girl to me. If they want to “correct me”, fine I’ll call them that. In Utah last winter, I worked with a Latino trans. I called him/her “dude” all the whole season. He/she didn’t care, because I treated he/she no differently than anyone else, and he/she was comfortable with him/herself.

    I don't know what you're talking about, but I do believe in supporting candidates who won't foster or normalize this nonsense.

    The West is destroying itself battling over absurd issues like this. Basically you have the insane left attempting to push shit like this, and then the right's choice is either to quietly concede it or battle back and expend energy/resources/airtime fighting back against it. In the end, nobody wins and society weakens itself, while hostile countries such as China and Russia enjoy every minute of it.

    Someone waking up from a 20-year coma would think the world has gone absolutely nuts.

    Yo, boomer

    As we stare at the face of the demographic crash and the disruption it is creating in first world countries we are simultaneously experiencing gender fluidity. What does this mean? I’ve never really thought about it but it can hardly be just coincidence. I cannot nuke that out on my own and I’ve never seen anyone try to tie the two together. They are related though.

    I really give no fucks as a libertarian what you do with your dick and scissors. I call everyone male and female “kid” anyway. “Yo kid, what’s up?” It is the privilege of being older and aloof.

    The kid serving your coffee will make $30/hr cause there are no kids or millenials or Gen X’ers frankly. Wage inflation will be a thing for at least a decade.

    Boomers are just about to take their economic ball and go home. Enjoy

    I usually type first and think about what I wrote after hitting submit.

    I started to think about you joking about learning how to text msg and my demographic riff

    I was on a road trip the other day. I was fighting sleep and knew I needed coffee. I remembered liking McDonalds coffee quite a bit in the hierarchy of fast food choices

    I wander in and there are no employees. I never go to,fast food joints so it’s been a while. I am met with a “kiosk” which is giant touch screen on which I’m supposed to enter my order and get a ticket. It took me several minutes to navigate this fucking thing. Would have taken me 10 seconds to ask a clerk for a medium coffee with 2 creams.

    Note to self: McDonalds is on the banned list.

    I also refuse to sit in my car in the drive thru for 10 minutes.

    This is like free therapy. Thanks

    Gotta wonder how long Republicans can run on this and this alone to ignore the fascism, election stealing, voter suppression etc.

    Been longer than I thought.

    To put a finer point on it. The concern ought to be the demographic cliff - the failure to procreate as a society. The question needs to be asked “why” the male/female reproductive thing is becoming passé.

    It really is too late in terms of our population. There are going to be yuge consequences. In 10 or 20 years there will be another kind of opportunity, I suppose. I don’t know what but out of chaos and failure something usually arises.

    If there are fewer people you sell fewer Chevrolets. There are fewer consumers. Lower GDP. That is just the entrance ramp for your issues.

    When Druff’s kid has a child at 45 (and that’s not terribly likely) that child will have his choice of three empty houses.

    The trans thing is the nadir of whatever it is that happened the last 60 years.

    Worry less about pronouns

    How is that for being "considerate and polite"?

    And we know you don't have any "MAGA" friends, nor would they ever do what you claim. Stop making shit up.
    You wouldn't do any of that though; stone cold lock you're a fucking simp with a shitty job with little to no chance at ever being a relevant person.

    I am 44, 5'11, 11.8% bodyfat, , in extremely good shape, own many pieces of real estate and vehicles, and have a smoking hot girl.

    Nothing you could ever relate to. You are just projecting. Faggot.

    You play the hand you're dealt.

    Republicans have to focus upon the issues which win elections, and when the opposition is acting incredibly insane, you can't just ignore it. On one hand, I'm glad the left serves up these underhanded softballs to my side in order to make it easy to crush midterm elections, but on the other, it saddens me to think about today's kids only knowing a world full of gender bullshit and increasing racial distrust/resentment.

    For a society, it would be much better for everyone if the wokes were laughed off the stage by both sides, and the same thing with the idiotic part of the right, and we could go back to focusing on actual problems.

    However, at the same time, ignoring it isn't the answer, either, because then it gets normalized in society. We're actually at the point where women are called "birthing persons", dudes are dominating women's sports, lesbians are called "transphobic" for not having sex with dudes, and men up are up for "woman of the year" awards. You can't just close your eyes and quietly accept this as life from now on.
