A free red state is an oxymoron. The only free speech allowed is speech that agrees with the state government. Victim of rape? Want to terminate your pregnancy? Sorry no freedom for you. Want to travel to another state to terminate your pregnancy? Like a free blue state? Sorry no freedom for you.

If you run a corporation and you cricize the governor's policy? Sorry no free speech for you. The Governor will make sure you are punished with revenge legislation..


There is just no freedom in red states.

No one if forcing you to get pregnant. Personally I am in favor of "Democrats" destroying their young, mutilating their offspring's sexual organs etc

Funny how leftists are only “pro democracy“ when they perceive mob rule favoring their degenerate cult practices.

Well victims of rape are indeed being forced by their rapists to get pregnant.

Even if they are not forced, their freedom. to terminate their pregnancy is gone.

I don't know anything about sucking corporate asshole. That's your area.

You may like Disney. You may hate them. I really don't care.

The point is. they, and the residents of Reedy Creek are the victims revenge legislation, solely because they cricized a state government policy.

You continue to parrot Russian propaganda with the constant WWIII nonsense.

You started an entire thread on the subject with a quote from a well-known Russian propagandist. You are immersed in it, because your right wing masters have taught you to be.

Sorry, supporting Ukraine does not equal cheerleading WWIII. ONLY Russian propagandists say that. Something that you have become.

Democracy can mean mob rule, but here in the US, we have this thing called The Constitution, which protects minorities from that. All minorities. Regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, socio-economics, or any way a person could be "othered". The American experience has evolved since our country's brith, but that document is the reason why it can. Peacefully.

Some arguments from the left or the right are dead in the water because of the Constitution, and all of its Amendments. That doesn't mean there's no issue, it just means we can't fix it the way that person wants us to, because we've learned that some things are just too important to give up.

So, nonconsensual sexual violence isn't legal in this country, even if it seems some crimes aren't properly handled. But neither is the governor removing the elected prosecutor because the governor doesn't like the way that prosecutor does the job. There will always be those on the left and those on the right, but sometimes, things are a lot more about right & wrong. Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should. And this has to apply to our elected officials at all times, possibly with more teeth than it has currently.

There is no Constitutional Amendment specifically regarding abortion. We don't seem to have enough of a consensus in this country to make one now either, so the existing document is all we can go by. If anything, the argument points out every other flaw in our country's founding & guiding document. And arguments we've had as a country many times in the past that have once again rearered their ugly heads.

States rights vs federal rights is a big one. It needs to be decided which decisions can be made by the states, and which are made by the feds. This would also dictate what trials go through state courts, and which have to be federal because of the laws that apply. States should not all be the same. We aren't. We can't be. We don't wanna be. But we do have enough in common in all 50 states to act as a single unit when we need to.

Immigration is a federal issue, but felt moreso in border states. Does a state have the authority to authorize a medication, or is that a federal thing? I'm pretty sure it should be federal, so that all 50 States in the Union are on the same page on that.

Some places are just better for some people, but that should never mean that anywhere is completely dangerous for these same people. Gun ownership rights should also be decided on a federal level, so that states & cities know what defies the Second Amendment and what doesn't and can't use not knowing as an excuse to deny citizens basic rights that the Constitution guarantees.

And there really needs to be a legal organization to enforce the Constitution, as both sides seem to think it only applies when it suits their needs. It doesn't. The Constitution is for us people, to limit our government's (and each other's) agency over all of us.

Soros prosecutors aside (yes they suck and need to be removed from office).

Red states lead the way in rapes as a % of population
https://worldpopulationreview.com/state-rankings/rape-statistics-by-state

As for the will of the voters, as usual... You have no idea what you are talking about...Show me a single ballot initiative in the last 5 years where abortion itself was a votable referuendum, and the voters voted to remove their own freedom to terminate their pregnancies.

When voters get to actually vote on these things like they did in Kansas (an ASS RED state). They voted overwhelmingly NO.
But the gerrymandered Republican legislatures always block abortion legislation from becoming a votable referundum, because they know it would lose handily.
They were not democratically elected and they want to keep it that way. Yes I am very much for democracy.

As for howling, I have never done that. It hurts my vocal chords. I have always said, if you don't agree with a corporation, don't patronize them. In this case, if you disagree with Disney's criticism of DeSantis "Don't Say Gay" bill, boycott Disney! It's your right.

But DeSantis didn't boycott Disney, he got his rubber stamp legislature to pass revenge legislation to punish DIsney and all the Reedy Creek residents. JUST because Disney criticized him. Because..... FREEDOM!!!!!

Freedom is a joke in red states, unless you are a party member. Just like Stalin and Kim Jong Un.

Will of the voters! - LMAO!

Oh, the Disney/DeSantis thing may need its own thread.

But yeah, the truth about they Disney/DeSantis feud is easily found on the internet and already has too much political spin for me too add more. I'm not sure how it could have been prevented though, aside for the whole not being evil thing all legislatures should strive for, but aside from that.

Any minority group in the US that is targeted by governmental action will defend themselves, whatever it takes. The internet makes it so much easier to do that, as we all have more access to like-minded people.

DeSantis miscalculated greatly, I think. This may end up costing Central Florida billions of dollars in Disney investment over the next few decades. Disney will still grow, mind you, it just may not be here in Florida.

Yeah, you really don't need to quote a post to respond to it. Just makes for so much needless scrolling.

And it doesn't matter to me why you brought it up, you did bring it up. And I had stuff to say. It's really ok if you don't respond to it. Not like you added anything insightful anyway.

It looks like this thread has gone off the rails. I will attempt to steer it back.

I posted a ways back a clip from a young conservative author who had written about the evils of wokeness. Later, when she was asked on a live interview to define wokeness, she froze.

The left mocked her mercilessly. She did finally come up with a wonderful definition. (paraphrasing) "The building of more and more hierarchies of oppression"

I think there is a huge societal problem the left is creating with this "Wokeness". Here is what I see:

1. The degrading of our society as a whole, by obliterating common understanding of gender.
2. Constantly creating new ways to divide us (every day there is a new alphabet soup of communities, who are automatically oppressed by anyone NOT in that community)
3. The immensely divisive and destructive concept of "privilege" No one is considered as an individual. Everyone is labelled as part of a group. If one is a part of a group called "white", one is automatically privleged and there fore guilty of oppressing everyone else.

These 3 items take on several sub items.

1, Gender. I understand that people don't want to be forced into a rigid idea of gender. I also understand that there are individuals who refuse to conform to any accepted idea of gender. I am stating my own opinion. I will state, I am NOT a Sociologist or an Anthropologist. I am stating an opinion, that with out some definition of gender roles that actually align with human biology and the strengths and weaknesses therein, our society will crumble. Masculinity and Femininity (aligned with males and females) are a cornerstone of how we build our families, work together, innovate, and generally exist. (My opinion) (Feminists will throw rocks at me for supporting the evil Patriarchy)

2. Trans genderism. - I am not a doctor or a scientist. Here is what I am observing: I do understand that there are people who, for what ever reason experience gender dysphoria. I understand that these people sometimes make the choice to alter their gender in some way (sometimes physically). Gender dysphoria is a disease. And no, I don't say this to denigrate Trans people I support the sufferers of this ailment to make the appropriate choices in their own lives to remedy it.
I REALLY worry about this new phenomenon (at least new to me). "Trans Kids". I know that children, especially teenagers go through all kinds of emotional crisis. I have a great concern that schools are going out of their way to normalize trans genderism, encourage it, and facilitate it, all without their parents' knowledge. I do understand that children are suffering from depression, and believe changing genders is the cure. I think it is fair to ask the question.. Is there a Behavioral Health solution that would be a better avenue to take?
Children should NEVER be making these decisions without parental supervision. And schools have NO place making these decisions at all.

The way leftists teachers talk, they describe trans genderism as just as normal as (I believe the woke folks call) CIS-genderism. It is not normal. It is a tragedy when it happens. And of course the person afflicted deserves dignity and respect and support.
I think that all behavioral Health options need to be fully considered before any medial alteration of a child's gender occurs. I think this should be very rare.

The whole idea of the words "Trans" and "Kids" together makes me shudder.

3. Homosexuality. I have argued for decades that homosexuality IS indeed natural and occurs in nature among many species. I also understand that children at a certain age realize that they are homosexual. I also acknowledge that very young children who do not and should not be aware of their sexuality, are being raised by homosexual parents.

First of all EVERY child is entitled to dignity and respect. I believe it is harmful and confusing to discuss homosexuality or any sexuality for that matter to K-3 children. Homosexuality is natural and should be addressed as such. However, encouraging children to be homosexual is very damaging IMO. (Don't know for sure if that is happening, but some clips that I have seen from leftist teachers indicate to me that it might be)

4. The divisive labelling and grouping of people. When I grew up, a "Community" was a group of neighbors, who laughed together, helped each other out, and supported each other in good times and bad. These communities were made up of people of both genders, various sexual orientations, various races and ethnicities. NONE of these parameters defined them as human beings. They were just part of a real community. The community was not organized to claim oppression.

5. One more note on gender. I understand this desire to avoid conforming to accepted ideas of gender. However, I dislike the bastardization of the English language to create custom "pronouns". I object to being coerced into using someone else's pronouns, and ostracized and ridiculed if I refuse. I especially object to misusing the word "They" (a PLURAL pronoun) to represent a singular neuter gender. Elementary school kids used to do that erroneously when I was growing up when referring to a hypothetical person whose gender was unknown.

6. This idea of "White Privlege" is divisive, destructive, and generally disgusting. First of all, the theory that a particular unjust and unfair set of circumstances largely impacted one group of people, automatically makes everyone not of that group "Privledged" is ridiculous. People are human beings and are individuals. No one can automatically claim to know the exact circumstances of any individual's life and therefore label a whole group of people as "Privleged" This is bad enough/
Doing it to young children is unforgivable.


All of this seems like wokeness to me. So what do we do about it? The answer is:

Identify the specific issues (as I have done above) and have a conversation and alignment on them. Call out what is truly harmful and work to remedy it.
NOT pass poorly worded legislation just to "OWN the libs" - DeSantis style.

Once again. I am expressing an opinion. You can agree or disagree. But let's have a conversation.

Oh, so much to unpack there. I will try to stick with the number format you've used, MJ.

1. Gender
Yeah, bullshit on that. "Normal" or traditional gender roles weaken us all as individuals. There really isn't much that is truly masculine or feminine, regardless of what we're taught is "normal". There's just shit that we have to do, and shit we can do. There's a funny meme about homos & lesbians. The homos are asking "Who will make us sandwiches", while the lesbians are asking "What do we do with all these sandwiches?". Yeah, it's kinda like that. A man can do pretty much anything a woman can, and vice-versa. We've had to since time began. Anyone living alone has certain things to do, like EVERYTHING. So we should all be prepared to make our own damn sandwiches. Or we go to Subway and let them do it. Everyone needs to learn how to be utterly reliant only upon themselves to know what a blessing it is to have a partner take on some of your burden, as you take on some of theirs. Dudes can cook. Chicks can hunt. Teach the basics to the children, then glass-ceilings won't even matter, much less be as big a deal as they are now.

2. New ways to divide us.
Yeah. Bullshit again. We're already divided. There aren't new communities being oppressed. But just like us kinksters have found one another, so too does every other community that feels "othered" in some way. And sometimes, we've been oppressing them without even realizing it.

Let's use smokers as the example. It used to be you could just smoke whereever you liked, then there were nonsmoking sections at restaurants, then smoking was forbidden (at least here in FL) completely at most places. Employers refuse to hire workers that smoke. Entire buildings, even apartment buildings, are now completely smoke-free. It's much more difficult for a smoker to get health or life insurance, and usually more expensive when they do.

Now, change smokers to being a different minority. Race, gender, sexuality, gender-identity, disability, whatever. Then maybe you'll understand how some of us feel oppressed. Maybe 'oppressed' isn't the right word. Just "othered", not included in the conversation, not considered or treated as equals, not given the same opportunities as someone else. Maybe 'oppressed' is the right word.

3. Privilege
Yup. Bullshit again. You are guilty of the same knee-jerk reaction as Bosco, because you fundamentally don't get it. "White privilege" is probably a bad name for it. Truthfully, it's majority privilege, and can apply in any environment and can shift with the majority in that environment.

I once went into a barbershop and was refused service by a Black barber with him saying "I don't know how to cut white people hair." The owner (also Black) cut my hair, luckily. I was in my early 20's and really just needed a trim anyway, and didn't think it was that damn hard. But, because of my race, I was the minority. If it shouldn't matter to me what race my barber is, I didn't think it should matter what race I was as a customer. Mind you, I hadn't even done anything but walked in, checked in, and sat down in the waiting area at that point.

Discrimination. Based on my race. In the late 1990's. Ouch. I wasn't ready for that. And as minor as it may have seemed, that's what has been done to a multitude of people in this country. For some stupid ass reasons.

But it was white privilege that had kept me from being discriminated against because of my race prior to that. I had gone to mostly white schools, and EPCOT lets you drink all around the world. I had been exposed to Italians, Indians, Mexicans, Cubans, Spaniards, Japanese, so many different cultures of the world. But I was totally ignorant of cultures other than my own that are completely American. I didn't know there was a difference, there didn't seem like much of a difference to me on any of the TV shows I watched. And if there was a difference, I explained it away mentally because of the geographic location, not realizing there are cultural differences due to the racial makeups of families. I was somehow totally ignorant that Black America was even a thing. I knew economics mattered. One set of grandparents were dirt poor, while the other was happily middle-class. I knew the struggles of disabilities, and divorce. But I hadn't realized that there could be something as mundane as skin colour that would separate us.

Should a person's skin color matter? Nope. But sometimes it does. The saying "birds of a feather..." is probably the best way I can make this understandable, unless I start singing the theme song from Cheers (were there any minorities in that show at all?). Because it really is that simple. Similar people find each other, associate with each other, and are generally more comfortable in an environment where people seem to be like them. Mostly, because we all have a need to feel safe, to find those connections, to find our tribe. For some of us, that's a lot easier than for others. And the more people are made to feel uncomfortable about who they are, the more they seek a place they can feel comfortable in.

Ok, back to your numbers again.

1. Don't confuse sex (male and female) with gender. They wouldn't make size 15EE heels unless there was a market for them. Aretha's Natural Woman or Shania's Man, I Feel Like A Woman can both take on a different meaning when you were born with a penis but still long to feel that way. I'm sure Kermit's It Ain't Easy Being Green would have a different meaning if I thought I should be green.

2. A disease is a virus or bacteria that can cause illness. Something you can catch. Gender-dysphoria isn't that. It may be an illness for some, but for most, it's just a thing. I do recommend seeing a counselor, a therapist, or a shrink, but I'd do that for everybody. Some children may need someone better than their school guidance counselor, and someone better suited for the child's exact issue. I too worry about this new phenomenon we're seeing, because I worry about the children in general. Kids have so many people in their lives that can screw their heads up. And it wasn't so long ago that so many kids were diagnosed with ADHD, so shrinks, teachers, and big pharma could all smile. We shoulda made laws then to prevent possible child abuse by the medical community, but we didn't. So we know that it could be a new kind of abuse. That's what scares the hell out of me.

A little boy that wants a Disney princess dress to play in doesn't mean he's trans. It might just be that he's seen Frozen too many times. Buy some new DVD's. I don't even know how you could tell if a little girl is trans. Maybe she just likes pants better than whatever frufru dresses she has?

I don't think transgenderism should be normalized, but I don't think it should be that big a deal to anyone other than the person going through it. I don't think anyone should use it as a reason to put somebody else down. But kids are fucking evil to each other.

3. Homosexuality. Oh, I'm gonna like this one.

Public schools teach what students need to know, but sometimes, they have to teach what the student should already know, because the parent(s) didn't, for whatever reason. More and more children come from families with two dads, two moms, single parents, divorced parents, anything different than the traditional nuclear household. None of that has anything to do with the child at all, but the child must cope with whatever situation fate dealt to them, and accept it.

But children also ask the most random questions. They deserve honest answers, even if the answer is made kid-friendly. No, little Johnny doesn't need to know that his kindergarten teacher gets barebacked at a leather club every Friday by seventeen different guys, but that doesn't mean the child wouldn't ask who the man with his teacher, in a wedding picture.

Don't Ask, Don't Tell is over. In the military, and everywhere. The sexuality of adults doesn't need to be explicitly explained to children, but reality does. Some dudes have sex with other dudes. Get over it already. The Florida Don't Say Gay law is just stupid for that entire reason.

Worse, it forces teachers to out their students to what may not always be supportive parents. A child should not be endangered by their teacher, but that's what this law requires.


4. The divisive labelling & grouping of people.

Even when I grew up, we didn't have as many outlets for people like me. I didn't even know what being me meant, much less how to explain it to my parents.

Community. So many of us long for that. We have that here. I may not always agree with you, and usually don't agree with Bosco at all, but there is still something that connects us. Each of us continues to show up and talk about the goings-on of the day. But we can't share everything. I don't think any of us are completely honest with everyone at all times. That doesn't mean we lie by omission, we just don't need to make ourselves so vulnerable. The biggest danger possible with each of us finding our own communities is the echo chamber. It can be so easy to listen to people that agree with us that we completely shut our brains down and ONLY interact with people like us, or to disregard someone else's views, because we know the truth.

But we're discussing politics on a KINK site. We've chosen that community. We could just as easily post on Twitter, or Facebook, or some news articles we see. And maybe we do, but we come here too. Because we have chosen this community to belong to.

5 Gender again
I don't quite understand this whole trans thing now, or the non-binary thing. I think there should be child safety locks in the kitchen for these 'pansexuals'. But I don't see that it matters what a person wears, or who they fuck (unless it's me). I don't understand the whole gender fluid thing either, but I'm of the mind that you either piss standing up or sitting down. And I didn't understand the metrosexual thing, because basic grooming for dudes should just always be a thing. And lesbians wearing wife-beaters, looking like Eminem or Bieber just really confuse me.

Pronouns? Yeah, idk. I went through a decade or so calling everybody darlin. Got some strange looks from the construction guys, but whatever. I don't see the pronoun thing as a big issue. He/him or she/her pretty much fits. If they don't fit, the person will correct you, and you can readjust. Your attitude will likely be responded to in kind, if they need to correct you, and it isn't the 17th time they've had to do it today. Although, some people are just assholes, and some people are really just tired of people's shit, so they feel they have to be assholes.

Just like some people prefer the term African-American, while others prefer the term Black. And idk why we're supposed to capitalize it now, but it's a thing.

Maybe just don't talk about people. Or use their names when you do. And yeah, "they"s just make me think they're bipolar, demonically possessed, or have multiple personality disorder. It's fucking stupid. Bad grammar is a hard limit for me anyway, so I'm totally ok with making the they's go away. But it's not my thing, so idk.

6. "White Privilege". Back to that again.

No, I don't feel responsible for the sins of the past, and I don't think any child should be made to. I do think we have to take a hard look at EVERYTHING that has been called racist, and everything we KNOW is racist, and put an end to it. Redlining, Confederate statues, the rebel flag, whatever.

I think we owe it to one another and to future Americans to get rid of all laws & policies that were born in hate, for any reason. And yeah, that's gonna mean writing new legislation that doesn't stem from hate. Legislation that protects people from real issues, not imaginary.

Lol. Autocorrect changed kinksters to ministers.

Yup. Big cities have a homeless issue. Always have. It's not really shocking that someone with Chappelle's money doesn't like that sorta thing.

But he could use some of his money to do something about it. Probably get tax write offs for it too.

I don't know what's wrong with you. Delusional, chronic liar, mindwashed zombie....

Because San Francisco was a real nice place, just a few years back.

The federal government budget is trillions and trillions

California is also spending mind-boggling amounts of money that the citizens don't have. Same with San Francisco...

But Dave Chappelle needs to personally pay to fix the crisis situations that those very governments create
