Apparently white people own dogs because they miss owning slaves.

Holy smokes.

Of course this is just the logical next step after forcing bakers and flower arrangers to participate in weddings. Forced ball shaving! It's like eHarmony being forced to make homosexual matches, even though the decades of research the guy did was only into heterosexual relationships.

Laws like this are big hammers, and completely unnecessary in these situations. There's no shortage of bakers or flower arrangers happy to work whatever event, and there are plenty of ways to find matches, as well as to have your balls shaved.

But now some little Vietnamese hair & nail lady is going to be forced to shave guys' balls. Well great.

I don't know if there as an official name for this sort of bigotry yet but apparently you can get in a lot of trouble for denying that a man can get pregnant, as the doctor who was the leader of Planned Parenthood just found out.

Maybe somebody should come up with a registry of terms so people on the left will know exactly what to accuse someone of. Or maybe Communist China already has one they can borrow and translate into English.

Sometimes I wonder if this sort of nuttiness is as widespread as it seems to be or is it just something that makes headlines in the news? I only hope it's the latter.

Edit: I think maybe the word is "transphobic" but I don't want to offend anybody by using the wrong word.

OMG. I had always thought of Planned Parenthood as serving a useful role for underinsured or uninsured women, but this latest move is beyond ridiculous. It would be hilarious if it weren't so sad!!!

So is the next step to throw the cast of Monty Python in jail for this?

As a donor, my dad complained years ago that Planned Parenthood was too politicized. When they called he told them so and said why don’t you focus on health services? Seems like the new president was doing just that. Of course,she got fired for it!

English usage: are we still allowed to talk about segregated storage? O0

I think they'll get a pass for now, at least, but I can hardly imagine them not being drummed off of TV with howls of outrage for this kind of skit nowadays.

I'm sure I could think of a few more examples but one that comes to mind is the "I'm a Lumberjack" song.

Whenever there's a debate about whether or not "men" can get pregnant, it's worth asking what the definition of "man" is. One side of the debate will have a very clear definition, and the other side will be totally unable to define the word "man".

Without being able to define "man", they really can't say what it means for a "man" to be pregnant.

This exchange between Matt Walsh and a doctor illustrated this quite well:
https://www.dailywire.com/news/49589/wa ... matt-walsh
left-wing gender theory can be entirely dismantled and debunked with one simple question: What is a man? All of the talking points, all of the sermonizing, all of the stuff about "transgenderism" and "gender fluidity" and "gender spectrums" — all of it is blown to pieces by a question that my six-year-old could answer. No leftist who espouses gender theory can provide a coherent answer to this question. Few will even attempt it.

Via Tim Pool, Bernie Sanders' campaign workers complain that he isn't paying them the $15/hr he champions. He cuts their hours instead. He also laments that they went public with that information.

On the ball-shaving news front, apparently this guy is obsessed with children's tampons, and tried to organize a "parents-free" pool party for children. Color me surprised.

Perhaps it’s unfair to put this item in this thread as it’s more “world gone crazy.” I’m tempted to put it here because of the left’s obsession with race, and because of their anti-white slant (my personal perception).
