More Silliness

From Peter, we see this story about a man who is taking hormones to be a woman and is now claiming that he is having menstrual cramps. Impossible. Menstrual cramps are caused by the female reproductive organs responding to hormone changes: thickening endometrial tissue, then shedding that thickening tissue as a part of the monthly reproductive cycle.

Even ignoring the absence of endometrial tissue, the hormone changes that cause this cycle aren’t there. The hormones responsible for driving this cycle are the Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Estradiol, the Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), and Progesterone. It’s a complex dance of hormones that work to control the menstrual cycle.

A gland in a woman’s brain (the pituitary gland) produces Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). FSH is carried by your blood to her ovaries. FSH stimulates follicles to grow. As she approaches ovulation, one of these follicles will start growing bigger and faster than all the others. It’s known as the dominant follicle. It is this follicle that contains the mature egg that will be released when she ovulates.

While FSH is encouraging lots of follicles to grow, LH, luteinising hormone, is also produced in small amounts (by the same gland in the brain that produces FSH, the pituitary gland) throughout the follicular phase. LH encourages the follicles already growing to produce estradiol (estrogen). As a woman approaches ovulation, a surge in LH will help to ripen the dominant follicle and rupture it for the egg to be released. (This surge in LH is what the ovulation test kits try and pick up on.)

When the dominant follicle ruptures, it is now called the corpus luteum. LH stimulates the corpus luteum to produce progesterone. The corpus luteum produces both progesterone and estradiol, with the primary role of these two hormones ensuring that the lining of the uterus is fully prepared for implantation by making it thicker, so that it is ready in the event that fertilization occurs. If the woman doesn’t get pregnant, the corpus luteum breaks down, progesterone production decreases and the next menstrual cycle begins when follicle stimulating hormone starts to rise again.

He isn’t taking any female hormone except for Estradiol. Even though men produce many of these hormones, they do so in a steady level. LH and FSH order testes to produce sperm, progesterone is key in the production of testosterone, and estradiol is produced when men have an excess of testosterone, so it is converted into estradiol by an enzyme called aromatase. You can see that, even though men have all of those hormones, they are not cycling up and down from the actions of the pituitary gland and cannot produce a menstrual cycle.

So even if he DID have a uterus and other female reproductive organs, he doesn’t have the necessary hormone cycles to be having menstrual cramps. He is a delusional, mentally disturbed male who needs counseling, not pills.

Shut ’em Down

I don’t care if a man is interested in having another man push a penis in his rectum. That’s his business. I don’t care if a man wants to dress up like a woman and introduce himself as a woman. Just don’t expect me to go along with any of it, and don’t parade it around in front of kids. The problem is that the left just can’t let it stay there. They have to use is to groom kids, they have to parade around and demand that we accept it, too. It’s like they are trying to use this as a lever to relive the civil rights marches of the 60’s. This isn’t that.

The Orlando Philharmonic has been advertising a “family friendly” drag show and have been allowing kids inside. The state warned them that they had better not have the show in front of kids. The Philharmonic went ahead and performed the show with children in the audience any way. Look at the content of the show for yourself and tell me that this is OK for children.

That was one of the milder parts of the show. If you want to see more, you can check out this link, where there are more videos embedded. One of the performed songs was “Screwdolf the Red Nippled Reindeer.” Aimed at kids, but not kid appropriate, in my opinion. That apparently doesn’t matter, because the website was advertising for “all ages” yesterday.

Children were there, so they have raised and called.

Well, the Governor of Florida says he isn’t going to put up with it, but the process takes time. They were warned, and did it anyway. I am going to wait and see if DeSantis is going to actually take action, or if this is simply a stunt to gain publicity. The “drag brunch” that DeSantis threatened to shut down six months ago is still in operation, so I am not holding my breath. This event from last night is supposedly “under investigation.”

There are a number of laws that can be used here. Chapter 847 of the Florida statutes makes it illegal to have sexual performances in front of persons under 18 years of age. Chapter 823 states that anywhere that performs these acts for minors may be declared a place of public nuisance. Once that happens, all sorts of state laws and regulations come into play. No one can carry a concealed weapon there, no liquor license, no business license, no children allowed inside, and all sorts of other legal headaches.

One of the legitimate functions of government is the protection of those who cannot protect themselves, especially including children. This venue, the parents who brought their kids, and the performers all need to be prosecuted.

The Orlando Philharmonic has called the Governor’s hand. I look forward to seeing what the Governor will do about this- is he holding a full house, or is he bluffing with a pair of fives? Governor DeSantis needs to prove that he isn’t all talk- do something to protect those kids, our kids, and our state.

As for the Drag Show? The last event of the tour will be held in Clearwater on Thursday (tonight).

Preferred Pronouns

Read this story about the Colorado gay nightclub shooter. What jumps out at me is that the article uses everyone’s preferred pronouns. It makes for a very hard read because it sounds like more than one person did the shooting.

Appearing in person at court Tuesday morning for the first time since being arrested, Aldrich, 22, sat alongside their public defender as the state prosecution presented their case…

Aldrich, who identifies as non-binary, allegedly opened fire at Club Q in Colorado Springs on the night of Nov. 19. They continued shooting for six minutes, at which point they were tackled and beaten by patrons.

emphasis added

Since, in this case, ‘they’ refers to a single person and is not the plural pronoun, the last sentence should read: “They continued shooting for six minutes, at which point they was tackled and beaten by patrons.” Or perhaps we can revert to the rules of the English language and use the proper ‘he’ instead of ‘they’.

The English language is dead.

Not the Right, After All

The shooting at the fag club in Colorado was blamed upon the right. Come to find out, it wasn’t anyone on the right after all. It was a tranny, proving again that the trannies are, by definition, delusional.

OK, I will play your silly game.

The ACLU claims that college students in California have a legal and constitutional right to be called the names and pronouns of their chosen gender identity. They claim that this right exists even if you have not legally changed your name. It isn’t just the ACLU in California- the organization’s national policy mirrors it. Interesting that they invent this “right” out of thin air while simultaneously ignoring the Second Amendment and SCOTUS on that issue.

In June 2020, the Supreme Court of the United States in Bostock v. Clayton County concluded that discrimination on the basis of sex encompasses both discrimination based on sexual orientation and discrimination based on gender identity.

In 2016, one college student made a game out of it and declared to his school that his pronoun was “His Majesty” and used official school policy to force staff members to use it. The left went apoplectic, claiming that he fundamentally doesn’t understand gender identity—or pronouns. I think that it is the left that doesn’t get it.

Total Frat Move wrote that gender-neutral pronouns just make “everyday a fun game of ‘let’s solve the puzzle in my pants,’” and that “when you inconvenience the entire world because you learned a hip new word you insist on being called, then you’re just an asshole.”

I agree, but in the spirit of this, we must acknowledge that the law requires that I be called whatever name or pronoun corresponds to my gender identity. If I ever find myself in an environment that insists I follow such a silly and arbitrary rule, I will find in necessary to prove just how silly and arbitrary it is. So let’s refer to the US Department of Labor to see how we can do this. Here are the definitions that they are using:

Names and Pronouns. Refer to each person by the name and the pronoun(s) by which the person wants to be referred. If you don’t know, ask in a tactful and respectful way. For example, you can say, “what pronouns do you use?” or you can introduce yourself with the pronouns you use, which may prompt someone to share the pronouns they use. Continued intentional misuse of a person’s name and pronouns – also known as misgendering – may breach the person’s privacy, may put them at risk of harm, and in some circumstances, may be considered harassment.

Gender identity: A person’s internal sense of being male, female, or something else such as agender, binary, gender fluid, gender nonconforming, genderqueer, or nonbinary. Since gender identity is internal, one’s gender identity is not necessarily visible to others. All people have a gender identity.

So let’s choose something to illustrate the absurdity of this, and then use the law to bludgeon them over the head with it. I choose to identify as Schrodegender. That is, I simultaneously exist in a quantum state of all genders, and only resolve into one specific gender once the observer makes an attempt to measure my specific gender. Each person will be required to look in my pants to observe whatever genitalia I am expressing at that moment before using that pronoun.

Or you can just call me “Assmaster,” either will be acceptable. To refuse to do so is to violate my constitutional rights.

They Want to Kill You

A Rhode Island School district is now claiming that using the wrong pronoun for a tranny is violence and people should “respond accordingly.” It seems to me that they are saying that the use of force should be authorized to stop someone from using the wrong pronouns.

“I absolutely believe in First Amendment speech protections, both as an elected official and an individual,” Lima added, “I do not believe that post suggests that using incorrect pronouns should be met with violence.”

The left claims that riots are “mostly peaceful,” that the J6 protest was an insurrection, and Kyle Rittenhouse deserved to be attacked because he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Now they claim that a call to use the force of government to “investigate and discipline such occurrences in the same way as any other biased-based assault” is not violence.

War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.

Fine. Bring it on. Let’s get this party started.

Antifa Photo Intel

Just in case you were wondering what Antifa is up to- here is a picture of them in Denton, TX, where the Antifa insurgents were providing armed protection for a drag show performance aimed at children. Note that the police and Antifa were working together at this event. At this point, residents of Denton, TX can assume that local LE are allied with Antifa. For this reason, Denton (a suburb on the NW side of Dallas) is now added to Zone 2.

The guy on the right is carrying an AR made from an 80 percent lower. His kit is rather sparse. No TQ, no FA kit, nothing but weapon, some ammo, and a radio. In fact, both of them look light on ammo. Less than 100 rounds tells me that they are there more for photo ops on social media and intimidation than they are for fighting, but then again, no one has really offered any fight, so I guess that doesn’t matter. I would also take careful notice that the guy on the right is wearing a body camera. So is the one behind him (mostly hidden by the Fag Flag) you can see the camera between the rainbow flag and the red one.

Looks like both have plates, but they don’t have helmets or pelvic coverage. I bet 62 grains moving at a couple of thousand feet per second through their pelvis would make them combat ineffective.

The idiot dressed like a cat is in the way of me getting a good look at the guy on the left, so we need to take a look at a different photo to see his kit a bit better.

Taking a look at his AR, it looks like an 80 percent lower as well. That bag marked as a FA kit doesn’t look large enough to be serious.

The third guy I want to take a look at may or may not be a skinny chick (on the left).

A couple of interesting things here. The boots are well worn. The only ammo carried is the mag that is loaded into the mag well of the (again) 80 percent AR. One odd thing is that the gas block has a plastic thread on it that looks like it secured the price tag to it at one point.

Another interesting thing about the ARs- they are all 80 percent lowers, but the similarity in parts ends there. That would seem to indicate that each of them made their own weapon. The thing is, every one of the ARs in these photos look like they are brand new. Not single flaw in the bluing. No wear, no scratches. Not anywhere. It’s like they have never been fired or even handled all that often. I am wondering if they have even been zeroed.

Anyway, if you see anything interesting in these photos, let me know in comments.
