From the New York Post:

Brett Favre makes the ESPYs uncomfortable for everyone
By Jaclyn Hendricks July 16, 2015 | 1:55pm

Wednesday may have been Caitlyn Jenner’s big night, but Brett Favre’s string of bizarre behavior may have unfortunately stolen the show.

The former NFL pro raised more than a few eyebrows during his appearance at the annual ESPY Awards. … He flips from happy-go-lucky to stone face just as Jenner makes her way to the stage to accept the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage. As the audience erupts with applause, the camera pans over to Favre as he claps slowly before rubbing his hands together.

Favre’s standing ovation for Jenner peters out at about the 0:26 mark.

For how to do it right, see:

ESPN should have provided the celebrities in attendance with a buzzer system to let them know when it’s safe to stop applauding:

This could be a popular iPhone app for the Modern Age: your phone vibrates silently in your pocket when it’s finally safe to stop clapping.

Another app could scan the cheering crowd for slackers. It would zoom in on the the first to tire of applauding and instantly post proof of his lack of dedication to Tumblr.

This app could have prevented the unfortunate incident that befell Comrade Ceaușescu in December 1989:

With enough technology, public life in our land of the free and home of the brave could be as comfortable and appropriate as this:

Who amongst you would be the first to say that Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t deserve a similar motorcade down Wilshire Boulevard? Remember, whatever you say goes on your Permanent Record.

    It's only a little discordant at this point. But then I live in Portland. Trans seems to be gaining in fashion along with all the recent attention. The last time I was creeped out, before my senses were sufficiently deadened, I think was when I noticed a weathered old, large forearm tattoo of a hot babe--a classic old sailor's tattoo of a pin-up girl-- on a very haggard older transvestite. I don't know. Just seemed weird.

    That's not a woman's body.

    What I find freakish is a man dressed as a woman having hundreds of people applaud him for being a woman when in reality he's still just a man--albeit a rather freakish man--dressed as a woman.

    It's not enough for him to live the fantasy, we're supposed to enter into it with him. But of course, only certain groups get to live their fantasies and impose them on the rest of us. Or else.

    I find that truly freakish.

    My reaction exactly as soon as I heard him speak. What a freak show. Why did Brett Favre agree to attend that event? What was he expecting? "There's Something About Caitlyn."
    , @Gunnar von Cowtown
    The gigantic man-hands are funnier/more freakish than the voice.

    Since you brought it up, the few trannys I've crossed paths with never really develop an "authentic" sounding female voice, but they usually get close. ""Caitlyn's"" voice sounds absolutely no different than Bruce's voice, so it makes me wonder if he's actually taking the hormones or only using make up, clothes and limited plastic surgery (jaw bone shaving/breast implants) to "transition"? If he's not taking the hormones, that just adds further evidence for autogynephilia.
    , @Sean the Neon Caucasian
    That ain't a woman. Apparently Mr. Jenner declined too go all the way with it and still has the equipment. So yeah, he's getting an award for choosing to be a cross-dresser.

    Dennis....Today's front page story, above the fold in the Buffalo News, is about the former Wheatfield, NY Town Attorney, who served 24 years as Robert James O'Toole and is now Roberta Jean O'Toole. He met his new law partner at Buffalo Queer Women....not making this up. O'Toole fathered four children with a wife he divorced in 2001. Waited until this year to transition so that he could accumulate 20 years toward a NY State public service pension. His pay was $90k per year and pension should be close to 75% of that. His psychologist, diagnosed him with "gender dysphoria", formerly gender identity disorder. Please note the elimination of the word "disorder."

    What a whackjob world we live in.

    Jenner got the Ashe award.

    Think about it.

    Jenner was the white male winner of decathlon. Image of normality and health.
    Look at him now. Look of age, decline, and decadence.

    Ashe was an odd Negro given the nature of mainstream Negro-ness. When most Negro athletes were dominant in boxing, basketball, football, and etc. Ashe was a star in Tennis, sports of the well-heeled. When most Negro athletes were dumb, childish, and/or loud-mouthed, Ashe was soft-spoken, mature, and serious. When colleges were filling up with big dumb black dummy athletes, Ashe spoke in favor of some standards for student-athletes. He was a sober, serious, and thoughtful Negro.

    Ashe died of HIV-related disease due to blood transfusion during an operation. In other words, he got sick cuz of blood infected by homos who buggered one another way too often.

    Given the kind of life that Ashe led and how he died–due to complications arising from decadent and excessive homo lifestyle among the homos who donated infected blood–, the last thing you wanna do is trivialize the man’s life by handing an award in his name to a trashy narcissistic freak, the New Jenner, who is now the darling of the homo community that NEVER took responsibility for the HIV epidemic and blamed it all on Reagan’s ‘indifference’.

    Chris Hedges is a shithead, but he spoke a kernel of truth in EMPIRE OF ILLUSION when he said we can’t tell reality from fiction anymore. At Michael Jackson’s funeral celebration, a series of images were shown that juxtaposed Jackson with Kermity the frog with Jackson with Mandela.

    It’s all so silly. But this is what happens when the culture of a nation is handed over to a bunch of out-of-closet pansy freaks.

    At the point, the real culture is less about left vs right than about serious vs frivolous or mature vs childish.

    Look at leftist or liberal intellectuals and cultural figures of the past. Whether it was Dwight MacDonald, Kirk Douglas, Paul Newman, Hannah Arendt, Mary McCarthy, Susan Sontag, or Edmund Wilson, at least they were serious adults(even if some of them were a bit nutty and neurotic).

    But look at the clowns today in arts, culture, and letters. Childish and frivolous. Europe has the bearded lady, America has ‘Caitlyn’.

    This is culture?

    “Wednesday may have been Caitlyn Jenner’s big night, but Brett Favre’s string of bizarre behavior may have unfortunately stolen the show.”

    Well, if ‘Caitlyn’ is the New Normal, I suppose a normal reaction is the New Bizarre.

    When a people are addicted to the cult of fashion, Right or Wrong is no longer a matter of deep or serious sense of morality but whatever happens to be ‘hip’ and ‘hot’ at the moment as deigned by the Powers-that-be. The New Morality is not about serious values but all about the Buzz.

    In a way, our society is under a Popular Kids Syndrome. In high school, the so-called Popular Kids set the trend for everyone. Our Popular Culture works the same way. It sets the fashions and trends through TV, and morons just go along.

    Oddly enough, the New Popular was created and imposed by those who were traditionally not popular in high school: funny-looking Jews and fruity homos. They were least popular in school but gained control of Hollywood, academia, media, and government. And they used their power to spread the New Popular that must always sing hosannas to homos and Jews.

    The New Popular: When a man puts a dress and pretends to be a woman, that is NOT bizarre but so very wonderful.
    When a real man finds that sort of behavior to be bizarre, HE is the one is ‘bizarre’.

    For the most part, you're on target, but let's not forget that Favre is his own brand of bizarre....sent pics of his privates, wagging back and forth, to a young woman who worked in the office of the Jets. Someone shoulda told him she'd think, "EWWW!" After all, 1) most bright women aren't going to be impressed by that; 2) most ATTRACTIVE, YOUNG women aren't going to be impressed by that-- an aging, wrinkled guy whose private area was graying right along with his head hairand his beard; most BRIGHT and ATTRACTIVE and YOUNG women wouldn't be impressed by that. In fact, not only would these women not be attracted by that, they'd be creeped out by that...which, in turns out, she was.

    Bizarre, indeed, although not as bizarre as Jenner, true. Evolutionarily, we can at least understand Favre, the creep.

    That's typical of trannies. They are generally giant assholes, and violent people. I wrote about gender issues for some time on the side of reason, and the only threats I took seriously came from trannies.

    Well, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is already in trouble (Mickey Rooney as a Japanese), and you can't even mention "Gone with the Wind" in an SJW crowd anymore.

    But, yes, all the great cross-dressing movies, "Some Like it Hot", "Doubtfire", "Charley's Aunt" (which was a Broadway show: that's done on two levels) and many others can be expected to bite the dust.

    I expect they will go after Asian depictions as inauthentic next. The "Mikado" was already harrassed in Seattle, and I can't believe anyone can watch "Kung Fu" anymore.

    I remember a thread Ta Nehisi had going where he was talking about how uncomfortable he was with Raymond Chandler, because Chandler made occasional homophobic remarks. Well, at least he didn't punch out the book he was reading.

    The basic problem with SJW's is that they have no historical or cultural perspective: because they have decided all history and all past culture was odious. So the only history or culture they ingest is self-marinating, and that just makes them -- I dunno -- incredibly stupid, shallow, and self-centered. They pride themselves on their lack of cultural and historical awareness, because it is righteous, but I think they just do it because they are lazy. And self righteous. And ignorant.

    Oh well.

  34. “Brett Favre makes the ESPYs uncomfortable for everyone”

    In a sane world, Jenner would have made the ESPY’s uncomfortable for everyone. How superficial. So Brett didn’t clap like he meant it. Did the camera catch anyone else who didn’t look as though they were sincere in their applause for….I’m sorry but this is just pathetic.

    Makes me wish for more lighthearted fare, such as stories on Trump’s candidacy and who else will attempt to boycott him in the coming weeks, especially if he happens to be holding a Confederate Battle Flag.

    You just know that the cultural commissars will insist the Donald better clap hard enough should he ever be in the same room as Jenner! And probably at least for a few whole minutes, since he’s naturally suspect for not having enough care and support for diversity. Everyone knows that diversity and WWT go hand in hand just like that.

    Accounts of the Titanic sinking often feature references to men who dressed as women in order to get onto lifeboats. Snopes has an entry on the subject which mentions some of those so accused and dismisses the charges as myth. An excerpt:

    To cast a man — especially a "gentleman," which is why this tale so often specifically references a "First Class passenger" — as a coward who would clothe himself in women's garb to save himself ahead of others was to stigmatize him for life, a fate that befell several of the Titanic's survivors, all falsely accused. The man most victimized by this rumor was William T. Sloper of New Britain, Connecticut, who was publicly identified in a New York newspaper as "the man who got off in woman's clothing."
     
    I'm sure we all agree that a man has a right to transition to woman at any time of her choosing, and it is disgraceful that anyone would stigmatize her for doing so.

    Well, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is already in trouble (Mickey Rooney as a Japanese), and you can’t even mention “Gone with the Wind” in an SJW crowd anymore.

    But, yes, all the great cross-dressing movies, “Some Like it Hot”, “Doubtfire”, “Charley’s Aunt” (which was a Broadway show: that’s done on two levels) and many others can be expected to bite the dust.

    I expect they will go after Asian depictions as inauthentic next. The “Mikado” was already harrassed in Seattle, and I can’t believe anyone can watch “Kung Fu” anymore.

    I remember a thread Ta Nehisi had going where he was talking about how uncomfortable he was with Raymond Chandler, because Chandler made occasional homophobic remarks. Well, at least he didn’t punch out the book he was reading.

    The basic problem with SJW’s is that they have no historical or cultural perspective: because they have decided all history and all past culture was odious. So the only history or culture they ingest is self-marinating, and that just makes them — I dunno — incredibly stupid, shallow, and self-centered. They pride themselves on their lack of cultural and historical awareness, because it is righteous, but I think they just do it because they are lazy. And self righteous. And ignorant.

    "Wednesday may have been Caitlyn Jenner’s big night, but Brett Favre’s string of bizarre behavior may have unfortunately stolen the show."

    Well, if 'Caitlyn' is the New Normal, I suppose a normal reaction is the New Bizarre.

    When a people are addicted to the cult of fashion, Right or Wrong is no longer a matter of deep or serious sense of morality but whatever happens to be 'hip' and 'hot' at the moment as deigned by the Powers-that-be. The New Morality is not about serious values but all about the Buzz.

    In a way, our society is under a Popular Kids Syndrome. In high school, the so-called Popular Kids set the trend for everyone. Our Popular Culture works the same way. It sets the fashions and trends through TV, and morons just go along.

    Oddly enough, the New Popular was created and imposed by those who were traditionally not popular in high school: funny-looking Jews and fruity homos. They were least popular in school but gained control of Hollywood, academia, media, and government. And they used their power to spread the New Popular that must always sing hosannas to homos and Jews.

    The New Popular: When a man puts a dress and pretends to be a woman, that is NOT bizarre but so very wonderful.
    When a real man finds that sort of behavior to be bizarre, HE is the one is 'bizarre'.

    For the most part, you’re on target, but let’s not forget that Favre is his own brand of bizarre….sent pics of his privates, wagging back and forth, to a young woman who worked in the office of the Jets. Someone shoulda told him she’d think, “EWWW!” After all, 1) most bright women aren’t going to be impressed by that; 2) most ATTRACTIVE, YOUNG women aren’t going to be impressed by that– an aging, wrinkled guy whose private area was graying right along with his head hairand his beard; most BRIGHT and ATTRACTIVE and YOUNG women wouldn’t be impressed by that. In fact, not only would these women not be attracted by that, they’d be creeped out by that…which, in turns out, she was.

    Bizarre, indeed, although not as bizarre as Jenner, true. Evolutionarily, we can at least understand Favre, the creep.

Those sitting near Favre gave his behavior tacit acceptance, and should at least issue apologies of their own for not confronting him. The NFL, of course, must denounce Favre and consider revocation of his Hall of Fame status. Favre’s endorsement deals should be terminated immediately.

    ESPN must denounce Favre. Somebody else pointed out here also any invitee not showing up is suspect. I have a hard time believing there weren't others. ESPN has an obligation to review (and release) all footage it has of the event for more evidence of trans phobia. Those sitting near Favre gave his behavior tacit acceptance, and should at least issue apologies of their own for not confronting him. The NFL, of course, must denounce Favre and consider revocation of his Hall of Fame status. Favre's endorsement deals should be terminated immediately. Manufacturer of the watch he's wearing--what's that a G shock?--must denounce Favre. I, of course, denounce Favre.

    Someone here mused ESPN might be risking its brand with its diversicult enthusiasm, but it presents an interesting case study in how the Narrative advances despite no real enthusiasm among the masses. ESPN and its competitors are gateway providers--you want your NFL, your NASCAR, whatever, you go through them, you take the relatively small portion of pc moralizing that comes with the real product (football, basketball, etc) like a hobo endures a sermon for a bowl of soup. No one has a monopoly on broadcast sports, but pc has a monopoly on everything, so whaddaya whaddaya?

    Average Joe's still too hooked on this sports to, say, abandon such as ESPN, and if they want to offer a freak-awards show that nobody watches, what does he care?

    But something must be wrong with them because they radically try to ‘fix’ the problem.

    What’s worse is that teams of SJWs were looking through the BBC’s back catalogue and came across some cases of pre-wrecking where filthy decadent bourgeois haters at the show Little Britain created the character “Emily Howard” in order to sow doubt and disaccord about how to react to Caitlyn Jenner with respect and dignity.

    Here is Emily at a swimming pool:

    And here is Emily as a model at a nude figure drawing class (kinda sorta NSFW).

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHcsCcX57As

    Authorities are currently searching Bret Farve's browsers to see if these videos are the reason for his very public wrecking of Caitlyn Jenner's big moment.

    From the other side of the Atlantic as I am I have no idea who Favre is, yet I applaude him, sincerely.

    Also if you look at the black guys in they audience they are struggling not to look disgusted.

    Agree about the voice, they might be showing this on Donbass TV right now to show what their opponents are all about, might make them fight harder and with even greater confidence.

    I gotta think at least 75% of the male athletes in that audience were disgusted with Bruce Jenner and the award he received. It was interesting to watch the ones who were trying hardest to hide their disgust. Religious NBA champion Stephen Curry was one I noticed.

    Favre, a good ole boy from Mississippi, had to be thinking “what in the hell has happened to my country”? Like most of us watching were.

    Well, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is already in trouble (Mickey Rooney as a Japanese), and you can't even mention "Gone with the Wind" in an SJW crowd anymore.

    But, yes, all the great cross-dressing movies, "Some Like it Hot", "Doubtfire", "Charley's Aunt" (which was a Broadway show: that's done on two levels) and many others can be expected to bite the dust.

    I expect they will go after Asian depictions as inauthentic next. The "Mikado" was already harrassed in Seattle, and I can't believe anyone can watch "Kung Fu" anymore.

    I remember a thread Ta Nehisi had going where he was talking about how uncomfortable he was with Raymond Chandler, because Chandler made occasional homophobic remarks. Well, at least he didn't punch out the book he was reading.

    The basic problem with SJW's is that they have no historical or cultural perspective: because they have decided all history and all past culture was odious. So the only history or culture they ingest is self-marinating, and that just makes them -- I dunno -- incredibly stupid, shallow, and self-centered. They pride themselves on their lack of cultural and historical awareness, because it is righteous, but I think they just do it because they are lazy. And self righteous. And ignorant.

It’s not even enough to clap for Jenner- you must cheer as loudly as possible for as long as possible.

And then SJW moms and dads would find themselves saying, “Of course you’re not trans!” to a six year old, but then they’d feel bad about it, and they’d be miserable about whether or not they should be facilitating their child’s transition: transition to happiness, I guess.

    The gigantic man-hands are funnier/more freakish than the voice.

    Since you brought it up, the few trannys I’ve crossed paths with never really develop an “authentic” sounding female voice, but they usually get close. “”Caitlyn’s”” voice sounds absolutely no different than Bruce’s voice, so it makes me wonder if he’s actually taking the hormones or only using make up, clothes and limited plastic surgery (jaw bone shaving/breast implants) to “transition”? If he’s not taking the hormones, that just adds further evidence for autogynephilia.

    Well, the thing about religion is that it respects the past, and integrates the past. Even if religion will recognize the limited truth value of the past (say, no Red Sea parting) or the transgressions in the past (say, David and Bathsheba) it not only values that past, and expects a knowledge and appreciation of that past, but it also expects the serious person to know all the intermediate exegesis. I don't mean just Talmud either (or equivalent non-Jewish writings).
    For example, with history you not only need to know the general shape, but also how that general shape was considered at past times. Same with any form of culture.

    The passage from “The Gulag Archipelago”:

    At the conclusion of the conference, a tribute to Comrade Stalin was called for. Of course, everyone stood up (just as everyone had leaped to his feet during the conference at every mention of his name). … For three minutes, four minutes, five minutes, the stormy applause, rising to an ovation, continued. But palms were getting sore and raised arms were already aching. And the older people were panting from exhaustion. It was becoming insufferably silly even to those who really adored Stalin.

    However, who would dare to be the first to stop? … After all, NKVD men were standing in the hall applauding and watching to see who would quit first! And in the obscure, small hall, unknown to the leader, the applause went on – six, seven, eight minutes! They were done for! Their goose was cooked! They couldn’t stop now till they collapsed with heart attacks! At the rear of the hall, which was crowded, they could of course cheat a bit, clap less frequently, less vigorously, not so eagerly – but up there with the presidium where everyone could see them?

    The director of the local paper factory, an independent and strong-minded man, stood with the presidium. Aware of all the falsity and all the impossibility of the situation, he still kept on applauding! Nine minutes! Ten! In anguish he watched the secretary of the District Party Committee, but the latter dared not stop. Insanity! To the last man! With make-believe enthusiasm on their faces, looking at each other with faint hope, the district leaders were just going to go on and on applauding till they fell where they stood, till they were carried out of the hall on stretchers! And even then those who were left would not falter…

    Then, after eleven minutes, the director of the paper factory assumed a businesslike expression and sat down in his seat. And, oh, a miracle took place! Where had the universal, uninhibited, indescribable enthusiasm gone? To a man, everyone else stopped dead and sat down. They had been saved!

    The squirrel had been smart enough to jump off his revolving wheel. That, however, was how they discovered who the independent people were. And that was how they went about eliminating them. That same night the factory director was arrested. They easily pasted ten years on him on the pretext of something quite different. But after he had signed Form 206, the final document of the interrogation, his interrogator reminded him:

    “Don’t ever be the first to stop applauding.”

    I find it only a little discordant at this point. But then I live in Portland. Trans seems to be gaining in fashion along with all the recent attention. The last time I was creeped out, before my senses were sufficiently deadened, I think, was when I noticed a very old and weathered tattoo of a pin-up girl--the classic sailor's tattoo--covering the gray forearm a very haggard older transvestite. I don't know. Just seemed weird.

    Dennis….Today’s front page story, above the fold in the Buffalo News, is about the former Wheatfield, NY Town Attorney, who served 24 years as Robert James O’Toole and is now Roberta Jean O’Toole. He met his new law partner at Buffalo Queer Women….not making this up. O’Toole fathered four children with a wife he divorced in 2001. Waited until this year to transition so that he could accumulate 20 years toward a NY State public service pension. His pay was $90k per year and pension should be close to 75% of that. His psychologist, diagnosed him with “gender dysphoria”, formerly gender identity disorder. Please note the elimination of the word “disorder.”

    I can see Mrs. Doubtfire being banned from ever being shown on television again just like what recently happened with The Dukes Of Hazzard.

    Accounts of the Titanic sinking often feature references to men who dressed as women in order to get onto lifeboats. Snopes has an entry on the subject which mentions some of those so accused and dismisses the charges as myth. An excerpt:

    To cast a man — especially a "gentleman," which is why this tale so often specifically references a "First Class passenger" — as a coward who would clothe himself in women's garb to save himself ahead of others was to stigmatize him for life, a fate that befell several of the Titanic's survivors, all falsely accused. The man most victimized by this rumor was William T. Sloper of New Britain, Connecticut, who was publicly identified in a New York newspaper as "the man who got off in woman's clothing."
     
    I'm sure we all agree that a man has a right to transition to woman at any time of her choosing, and it is disgraceful that anyone would stigmatize her for doing so.

    The same for Jefferson Davis attempting to avoid Union capture.

    Not just Jefferson Davis--Lincoln himself was accused of dressing as a woman to pass through hostile Baltimore in February 1861 on the way to his inauguration.

    For the rest of his presidency, the story of his sneaking like a coward through Baltimore would be told and retold by his enemies, with particular effect by cartoonists of the day. He was drawn with many variations of Scottish headwear, which eventually morphed into a Scottish balmoral cap and very short kilt. The absurd disguise was often accompanied by a terrified expression on the President-elect's face, to further undermine the public's image of his courage and manliness. Images such as a comic strip in Harper's Weekly plagued Lincoln throughout his presidency.

    Newspapers of all parties mocked Lincoln's actions. In a Vanity Fair cartoon, the kilt was traded for a dress the president had borrowed from his wife. By the time Abraham Lincoln arrived in Washington, he was the laughing stock of the entire country.

    Funny how everybody in the cult stresses not only Jenner’s courage, but also his supposedly good looks. In the video the butch lesbian introduces her as the ” courageous, stunning, Caitlyn Jenner”.
    Not only are we supposed to accept he’s a woman now, who made the bold move to “transition”, we’re also supposed to find him stunning, well- dressed, faaabulous, young-looking, etc.

    One wonders about guilt by association, as well:

    “Caitlyn Jenner is gorgeous.”
    “Blacks are just as smart as anyone else.”
    “Jews are patriotic.”

    You would have expected more from someone who won a gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Olympic games, especially someone who competed against and defeated men when the person was actually a woman. Since we have separate games for men and women (and the Olympics administers strict tests to assure complete separation) and we now know that it was "Caitlyn Jenner" and not "Bruce Jenner" who won that medal (as I have heard several talking heads state on TV), I wonder if the Olympics organization has given any thought to revoking Jenner's decathlon gold medal won when she posing as a male.

    What if everyone in the audience "spontaneously" just decided to stop applauding Jenner at the same time?

    Wonder what would've happened if the Russians in the audience had simultaneously stopped applauding Stalin's speech? I mean, he couldn't have the entire audience killed, right?

    Or would he have done that?

    I think something like that happened in Romania toward the very end of the Caeucescu regime.

    This sets an interesting precedent. If using the wrong pronoun is an affront to one’s sexual identity so serious as to deserve being met with deadly force, what amount of violence would be acceptable if a man took a woman home only to discover a sausage and meatballs when she pulled up her skirt? One is just words; the other is just about the most emasculating thing you can do to a man, a primal violation of his performative identity. Besides, don’t feminists say that obtaining sex under false pretenses is rape? Isn’t that how most trans people get killed?

    Yes, but I wanted to emphasize incidents like the one in the opening of this Gore Vidal-narrated documentary, the kind of murder that Caitlyn Jenner was so worried about in her ESPY speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWGRi99cVHo

    "Hate kills, and it killed my daughter" -- no, it wasn't hate, it was narcissistic injury. It's one thing to be defeated in combat by a stronger man, it's one thing to be cuckolded, it's one thing to be raped in prison. But to be robbed of your masculinity by a man who has already discarded his own masculinity for a sham femininity -- that's a very low form of bitchdom and, it goes without saying, much more humiliating than having a skinny little Jew call you "sir".

    That was a woman playing dress-up pretending to be a man. Yes the ESPY award was handed out by a woman dressed as a man to an old man playing dress-up as a woman. I can’t wrap my head around any of this nor do I want to. This country has become a vile, filthy den of iniquity with a huge portion of our society watching lovingly as the LGBT community tries to outdo each other with acts of depravity. God help us.
