Trans-men can be mothers, too…
In case you hadn’t heard, men can give birth, too! Well, “trans-men” anyway. Such is the case with Trystan Reese who, along with husband Biff Chaplow, has announced that he will be giving birth to a son this summer. This isn’t the first time the Portland, Oregon couple has been expecting a child as Trystan suffered a miscarriage last year.
Trystan is, of course, biologically female and says he felt contacting the OBGYN prior to the 6 week ultrasound was a necessary precaution to determine how a “trans-dad” might be treated at a prenatal visit.
‘I can feel someone looking at my face and searching for the remnants of womanhood, he said. ‘
‘They kind of squint their eyes a little bit and I can tell they’re trying to take away my beard, they’re trying to de-transition me in their heads.’
However, he says he hasn’t been treated differently by the staff at the clinic.
‘Every person wouldn’t even bat an eye that there was a dude with a beard claiming to be pregnant who is here to get blood-work done – and I have been trans long enough to know that doesn’t come magically.’
Trystan is right. This sort of acceptance of the absurd doesn’t come magically. It comes from years of propaganda pushed out by every conceivable social, political, and cultural outlet. It comes from decades of decadence, moral relativism, and the endless exchange of virtues for virtue signaling.
The fact that no one “bats an eye” at a pregnant “dude with a beard” is not something to be celebrated. Rather, it is a sign of a society placing the feelings of certain groups above objective facts simply to virtue signal or avoid criticism from their peers. It is a sign that our society is ethically weak and morally bankrupt, and would see itself dissolved before it would endure the risks of telling the truth.
The truth is, no matter how much or loudly a female “trans-man” proclaims themselves to literally be a man, biology dictates otherwise; And men cannot bear children. Trystan and Biff prove this fact, no matter how much they may feel to the contrary. There are two sexes, and reproduction requires one of each. I don’t care what you feel about your sex, gender, etc., your feelings will never change reality. Two males will never produce offspring, and neither will two females. This is the nature of sexual reproduction. It is objective, scientific fact, and such realities don’t care about your feelings.
A beef over burritos…
White women will not be permitted to make burritos if social justice warriors online have anything to say about it.
They said plenty when two Portland, Oregon women, Kali Waligus and Liz “LC” Connelly, opened a burrito pop-up shop after returning from a trip to Mexico. The two fell in love with the burritos they enjoyed on their road trip and decided to try to crack the tortilla recipe so they could make their own. This ultimately lead them to open “Kooks” earlier this year. However, their small-business dreams were dashed when SJWs and virtue-signalers took to Yelp and social media screaming “cultural appropriation” and accusing the women of stealing Mexican food and jobs.
Never mind that they took the initiative to learn a craft. Never mind that they spent their own time and resources to create a business. Never mind that these “stolen” jobs wouldn’t have existed were it not for their idea to start this particular business. Never mind all of that because these women are white.
White people are evidently not permitted to value, consume, produce, or participate in anything non-European in origin. If they do embrace anything deemed non-European, they will be labeled as a racist thief whose very existence is oppressing minority groups.
As a result of the controversy, Kooks closed ten days after opening.
Yet again, an online social justice mob manages to shame and harass people into bending to their authoritarian will. I wonder if the mob will turn their ire onto Taco Bell next? After all it’s founder was a white man named Glenn Bell who learned to make tacos from proprietors of a Mexican restaurant who voluntarily showed him their craft. Is that any different than what Wilgus and Connelly did to attain the culinary skills to open Kooks? If not, then why aren’t SJWs demanding Taco Bell shut its doors as well?
Personally, I think it’s because they’re generally basement-dwelling bullies and, like most bullies, they’re fearful of real confrontation so they go after those they view as easy targets while actively avoiding any potentially strong adversary. This in turn allows them to feel powerful without having faced any real opposition; and the more empowered the online social justice mobs feel, the more they will seek out and destroy people like Kali Wilgus and Liz Connelly.
People have to get over being labeled “phobic” or one of the dreaded “isms” and push back by not giving in to these hysterics. You cannot appease SJWs by acquiescing to their insane demands.
And speaking of insane demands…
Georgia county commissioner demands Civil War museum remove Confederate flags. Museum closes.
Due to this stunningly stupid request by Henry County Georgia district 2 commissioner Dee Clemmons, the Nash Farm Battlefield and Museum closed it’s doors June 1.
In a statement on their Facebook page regarding the decision to close, The Board of the Friends of Nash Farm Battlefield, Inc. said that Clemmons, “requested that ALL Confederate flags be removed from the museum, in addition to the gift shop, in an effort not to offend anyone.” The museum has refused to honor this request because doing so would essentially cause their exhibits to lose historical context and value.
“To exclude any Confederate flag would mean the historical value has been taken from our exhibits, and a fair interpretation could not be presented to each guest. Confederate flags were on this hallowed ground, as were the Union flags. To remove either of them would be a dishonor.”
According to the Facebook post, this is not the first time Clemmons has targeted the museum as, soon after taking office, she requested that the entrenchments be removed from the property. Next, “she had the Second National Confederate Flag removed from the flag pole where it has been flying since Henry County purchased the property”. But her order that the Confederate flags be removed from the museum is one the museum says it “cannot and will not comply with”.
It is absurd that this museum felt compelled by a member of county government to close their doors for the crime of accurately portraying American history. Sad as it is, the museum had no choice, because giving in would mean altering the truth of the past simply to appease ignorance and irrationality in the present.
History is what it is, and it should never be subject to change simply because certain things are upsetting or offensive to some people. To permit someone to alter history is to, in effect, permit them to alter reality. No one on earth is deserving of such a power, let alone some idiot county official from Georgia.
