It’s the holidays, and holidays mean seeing family. One of the family members I managed to see was my niece. Talking to her is always instructive, as I think that it’s important to peer into the minds of young people. The niece I am talking about? The same one from this post, where we talked about economics.
This conversation involved her announcement that she is a lesbian. I asked her why she thought she was a lesbian. Her reply was that a lesbian is someone who likes girls more than boys, and since she likes girls and isn’t too fond of boys, that means she is a lesbian. I asked her if she had ever kissed a girl, and she replied that no, she hadn’t. See, there is the confusion. Adults in her life are telling her that she must be a lesbian because she doesn’t like boys.
I have news for those on the left- many children at that age don’t like the opposite sex. Girls and boys like different things at that age, and for the most part don’t have many common interests. As a preteen, I was playing baseball and roughhousing. The girls were boring because they played with dolls makeup. I remember at summer camp, we chanted “2, 4, 6, 8, all the girls evaporate.” That didn’t make us gay. We didn’t develop sexual interests for several more years. I wasn’t interested in girls until I was 14 or so.
The same thing happened with my 21 year old niece- she said she was a lesbian and a vegetarian, until she wasn’t. Now she lives with her boyfriend and eats meat. OK, not all meat. She doesn’t like red meat, but I see her eat seafood and chicken on the regular.
For all of these issues, I blame my sister. She is a moron, a welfare queen, and a Democrat. I think the one is a precondition for the other. First, she believed that they drill wells, and if they hit water, they build a house. If they hit oil, they build a gas station. This wasn’t when she was a kid, either. She believed that in her 30s. Anyhow, she was a waitress until her child support for her oldest daughter came to a halt. Her welfare benefits went way down at the same time, so she married a guy who actually makes decent money, so that made the welfare and food stamps go away. That was when she had to get a real job, so she became an elementary school teacher (third grade).
Earlier this year, she told me that she didn’t like Ron DeSantis because he was against teachers, pushed through the “don’t say gay” law, and wanted to outlaw women having abortions.
I pointed out to her that DeSantis pushed through large raises for teachers in 2019, again in 2020, again in 2021, and yet again in 2022. The so-called “don’t say gay law” says nothing of the sort and merely prevents teachers from discussing sex with 8 year old children, and asked her why abortions are so important to her, seeing as how she is in her 40s and isn’t likely to get pregnant anyhow.
Her reply was that her pay hadn’t gone up. I said well, isn’t that your school board and union’s fault? She said “Well, that isn’t what the union tells me.”
This is the voting base for the Democrats. Uninformed morons.
