“Too butch” tweeted trans advocates about USMC plans to update Iwo Jima statue. “That’s so 2013! It’s the current year …”

From Marine Corps Times:

Here are the new rules for transgender troops
Andrew Tilghman, Military Times 5:18 p.m. EDT June 30, 2016

Transgender people can serve openly in the U.S. military, effective immediately.

In an historic and controversial move, the Pentagon on Thursday lifted its longstanding ban on transgender troops and began outlining how the military will begin allowing — and paying for — service members to transition, medically and officially, from one gender to another.

Now transgender troops will no longer be considered “medically unfit” for military service. By October, transgender troops may begin an official process to change gender in the military personnel management systems.

The Pentagon will pay for health care support related to gender transition in cases where a military medical doctor determines that is necessary, according to the new policy.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced the new policy after a year of contentious debate inside the Pentagon as some senior military leaders questioned the impact on readiness.

Carter firmly rejected those readiness concerns and said the change will ultimately improve the quality of the force.

“The policies we’re issuing today will allow us to access talent of transgender service members to strengthen accomplishment of our mission,” Carter said at a Pentagon press briefing.

“We have to have access to 100 percent of America’s population for our all-volunteer force to be able to recruit from among them the most highly qualified — and to retain them,” Carter said.

Many details remain unclear. …

Many transgender individuals choose not to seek gender reassignment surgery so there is no requirement that official gender and physical genitalia match for troops or recruits.

In related news, America’s oldest serving enlisted person, Corporal Klinger, announced that he’d finally given up all hope of ever getting out of the goddam Army.

    You're exactly right about the conservative attitude towards "our" military. They can't or won't accept that the U.S. military is as compromised an institution as any other, replete with lesbian feminist "officers," globalist lickspittles, and now members of the LGBTxxx freak parade, whose primary preoccupation beyond servings as a jobs program and social science laboratory is to spread the selfsame social cancer abroad at gunpoint. And I say this as a current "member" (because naturally we can't say "serviceman" anymore).

    Why? Is someone going to raise, train, equip, train, motivate, and lead a foreign army to invade and conquer the USA in the last 6 months of Obama's presidency? Are the Marines such pusillanimous little crybabies that they're all going to lay down their arms or desert to the enemy because a tiny handful of their comrades might avail themselves of an elective surgery?

    "Humiliate" Get some perspective. We have the most expensive and useless armed forces in the world, incapable of beating illiterate Afgan tribesmen after 15+ years now and trillions of dollars spent. The officers in charge, or at least the generals, could use some humiliation.

  3. Tranny shock troops! US Marines will be invincible, like general Buttnaked’s elite Liberian soldiers!

  4. I have to laugh to keep from crying.

  5. It’s gotten to the point where every time I hear the national anthem play or see people saluting the flag, I get very uncomfortable. There’s too much of a disconnect between the tradition and the healthy instincts reverence for the military represents and the insanity of what it’s actually become.

    Speaking of which, there’s a reality show on TLC called I am Jazz about this high school aged boy who thinks she’s a girl and her family. I’ll use the “she” pronoun because this one can actually pass as a girl, and seems to be an actual case of the condition. The whole family swears that Jazz was adamant that she was a girl as long as she could talk.

    It’s incredible watching it and seeing what is being presented as healthy and normal.

    For example, Jazz is pumped full of testosterone blockers and estrogen stimulants so that she doesn’t go through male puberty. She’s talking to her doctor about how she hoped to grow breasts, but unfortunately the shape wasn’t right. In other words, she just ended up with “man boobs” instead of actual girl breasts, which she expected to get from some hormone treatments.

    Jazz has been recoiling at getting “bottom surgery,” but recently has come around to accepting the idea so that people won’t be able to say she has a penis so she’s not a girl. Nobody in the family would dare discourage this.

    Throughout the show there are ridiculous examples of what the family perceives as oppression. At one point she goes through another surgery to have a hormonal blocker implant and sees that on her hospital bracelet it says “Sex: M.” They complain about this, but one would think that biological reality would trump feelings in a surgical setting in case something goes wrong.

    The backdrop of this is an intact family with a mom, dad, and four kids including Jazz. They all seem well adjusted and healthy, except for the fact that they’re all ok with the mutilation of one member of the family.

    Watching the show, even I’m convinced that Jazz might be a real case of the transsexual condition. I’d draw the line at bottom surgery though, which should not be allowed.

    While Jazz may be happier as a girl, you see the broader effects of her activism. She goes around befriending people who are obviously insane. One character on the show mentions that at her child’s school like 10-15 kids had recently come out as transgender. Everyone of course celebrates how wonderful this is.

    The whole thing is quite surreal and fascinating.

    It reminds me that I read in the NYT today that the latest estimate is that 0.6% of the population is now transgender, or about 1 in 150 people. Amazing that such a sizable minority was missed for all of human history up to this point.

    Agree, but I go beyond that. I have refused to fly the flag or say the Pledge since Obama's re-election. In 2008, I thought the country made a very, very stupid mistake.... in 2012 I realized that it got exactly what it wanted.

    I've got to the point where I simply hate this country -- just like all the radical hippies did back in the Sixties. Back then, they hated it because they had absolutely no common values with "The Establishment" that controlled it.

    Now, the Counterculture has become The Establishment, and I'm the guy who has nothing in common with them.

    I refuse to have any sort of patriotic loyalty whatsoever. I have no respect for anyone in any of the institutions of society. I laugh bitterly when I hear stupid, flag-waving, patriotic conservatives repeating platitudes like "The troops are fighting for our freedom." Freedom to do what? Hack babies to pieces and have anal sex?

    For thirty years I was a flag-waving, ultra-patriotic, right-wing, Republican-voting, Reaganite conservative rah-rah patriot.

    Not any more. Frankly, this country has become positively Satanic -- and I say that despite the fact that I'm not exactly a Bible-thumpin' holy roller. This country can't collapse soon enough as far as I'm concerned. There's nothing in it for me.

  8. All I can say is that I am little bit skeptical of these new rules for Marines. My father, who also served in the USMC during WW2 and Korea, would probably also be skeptical. It’s not that weird or off the wall people cannot serve, it’s more that when you are in the service it’s not supposed to be “about you”, so any oddities you may entertain, as for example Marine Ed Wood, who is said to have landed at Tarawa in silk undies, should be kept to yourself. That’s why I didn’t have a problem with “don’t ask, don’t tell” because it more less matched my own service experience.

    However, the new layout for the services is more about acceptance, which means openness, and full integration, so that not only do you face the prospect of dealing with open gays, but you also are going to have mixed gender combat units (and we have had mixed gender navy crews for a long time now), and, with the new legislation, mixed gender setups with transmen and transwomen.

    It’s a good thing that I am an old dinosaur and will probably be dead soon enough, because to me to speak of a man with a vagina, or a woman with a penis, is definitely getting into Hans Christian Andersen Emperor’s New Clothes / Chicken with Lips territory. In other words, I don’t believe it and luckily I don’t have to.

    I wish the the armed services good luck, I have my doubts that very many straight men are going to really want to make a career out of promoting this nonsense, but if I’m wrong, that’s fine, and if I’m right, then soon enough our defense establishment will be comprised of like minded individuals in the LGBTQIA of America.

    PS: The same issue of Marine Times had an article about a whole lot of people in trouble because a recruit died at the Recruit Depot at Parris Island. You may ask: Was he beaten to death? Led into the Big Muddy? Neither. He killed himself. Not only that, he killed himself after he had threatened to kill himself a week earlier, because he didn’t want to do the training. So he spoke to a counselor and changed his mind. That is, until he killed himself. So my first question is: Why should anyone at Parris Island be blamed because a recruit killed himself? Second question: Why wasn’t this guy immediately discharged, and what does it say about the current standards in the armed services that they would even bother to continue with this character in boot camp? (Full disclosure: I think the kid was Muslim, but I’m sure that is relevant.)

    Star ranks don't count. Neither do enlisted ranks or lieutenants. The ranks that actually control the troops and earn their loyalty through competent and decent leadership are the career field ranks, captains, majors, lieutenant colonels, and colonels in the army and equivalent ranks in the other services. Historically it is these ranks that have most often formed the nucleus of successful military coup d'etats, putschs, rebellions, etc. Think of Franco, Nasser, the Greek and Argentine Colonels, Gaddafi, etc. Today a successful military takeover would also require the participation of specialist ratings that fall outside of traditional military ranking systems, e.g., nuclear, computer, and logistics specialties.

    BO and his wrecking crew have had to tread carefully pruning these ranks of patriotic, non-ass-licking officers. These men are essential to the functioning of the military. Many are intensely troubled by what they see as the destruction of a once proud American institution. It won't take much more to set some of these men off. I wouldn't care to predict the results should this happen.

If “transgender” individuals can demand that their elective and cosmetic use of sex hormones be not only celebrated but also socially financed and passed on to all insurance premium payers as well as taxpayers, I expect steroid craving men should sue for equal protection to demand access and funding for their own elective and cosmetic hormone use.

    It's incredible watching it and seeing what is being presented as healthy and normal.

She's talking to her doctor about how she hoped to grow breasts, but unfortunately the shape wasn't right. In other words, she just ended up with "man boobs" instead of actual girl breasts, which she expected to get from some hormone treatments.

    Jazz has been recoiling at getting "bottom surgery," but recently has come around to accepting the idea so that people won't be able to say she has a penis so she's not a girl. Nobody in the family would dare discourage this.

    Throughout the show there are ridiculous examples of what the family perceives as oppression. At one point she goes through another surgery to have a hormonal blocker implant and sees that on her hospital bracelet it says "Sex: M." They complain about this, but one would think that biological reality would trump feelings in a surgical setting in case something goes wrong.

    The backdrop of this is an intact family with a mom, dad, and four kids including Jazz. They all seem well adjusted and healthy, except for the fact that they're all ok with the mutilation of one member of the family.

    Watching the show, even I'm convinced that Jazz might be a real case of the transsexual condition. I'd draw the line at bottom surgery though, which should not be allowed.

    While Jazz may be happier as a girl, you see the broader effects of her activism. She goes around befriending people who are obviously insane. One character on the show mentions that at her child's school like 10-15 kids had recently come out as transgender. Everyone of course celebrates how wonderful this is.

The costs would be incredibly steep, of course, but the delusional incompetence of Western leaders at this precise moment means those costs might be lower right now than at any other time in history. Strike while the iron is hot, and all.

    Star ranks don’t count. Neither do enlisted ranks or lieutenants. The ranks that actually control the troops and earn their loyalty through competent and decent leadership are the career field ranks, captains, majors, lieutenant colonels, and colonels in the army and equivalent ranks in the other services. Historically it is these ranks that have most often formed the nucleus of successful military coup d’etats, putschs, rebellions, etc. Think of Franco, Nasser, the Greek and Argentine Colonels, Gaddafi, etc. Today a successful military takeover would also require the participation of specialist ratings that fall outside of traditional military ranking systems, e.g., nuclear, computer, and logistics specialties.

    BO and his wrecking crew have had to tread carefully pruning these ranks of patriotic, non-ass-licking officers. These men are essential to the functioning of the military. Many are intensely troubled by what they see as the destruction of a once proud American institution. It won’t take much more to set some of these men off. I wouldn’t care to predict the results should this happen.

    If I were Russia or China right now, I'd be at least gaming out the possible aftermath of an unprovoked, no-warning decapitation strike on Washington, D.C., and a few other Western capitals. The costs would be incredibly steep, of course, but the delusional incompetence of Western leaders at this precise moment means those costs might be lower right now than at any other time in history.

    Settle down. The Left has continuously sought to degrade, humiliate, and embarrass our military since the collapse of the Red Hunts of the 1950s. Spitting on returning troops, highlighting failures in Vietnam, burning American flags, and, more recently, forcing diversity, women, homosexuality, and trannies into the ranks. Obama has accelerated it, and the Dems are fully behind it. Don't think that it will all be forgotten by the troops after his presidency.

    Forcing the military to pretend that diversity is a strength, women are the equal of men, gays are perfectly normal, and trannism is perfectly ok is humiliation. Forcing people to say that a lie is a truth is a form of psychological manipulation and degradation. As Theodore Darymple has pointed out, this is precisely the point of Communist propaganda: to humiliate you by making saying that something is true which you know to be false.

    A military handcuffed by rules that prevent the full out offensive that would rid us of these terrorists for at least two generations. If we'd handled the conquest of North America this way, we'd have never expanded outside the thirteen colonies and the south would have been successful in seceding.

    Quite frankly, the military has for fifty to eighty years been bubbling over in resentment over the restrictions on their warfare the post-WW2 rules imposed on them. Humiliating them with this garbage is only adding fuel to their fire.

    But "humiliate" is *exactly* right. Maybe you're not a man. Men--civilized men--will throw in with a project they believe in, give their time, energy, effort and maybe even their life. But when you make it a joke, then you make them, their efforts and sacrifice a joke. That's exactly what the left is doing with this crap, it's seeking precisely to *humiliate* normal American men serving their nation, make it a big fricking joke, strip them of any pride and hence any feeling and willingness to sacrifice or defend their nation.

    As to being incapable of beating Afghan tribesmen--please. They could brush them aside, destroy them completely in about a month, and open up Afghanistan for American men to come settle ... *if* that was the mission. But it's not. They are trying to "nation build" some sort of stable and democratic Afghanistan. And yes, in that they are not succeeding. Big surprise.

    One aspect of the multiculti lunacy is that all this prior history--especially the military sacrifice--had *no* point. Those folks *thought* they were suffering and dying for their nation, to ensure national arrangements beneficial to themselves and their posterity. It was all for naught. Utterly and completely pointless. The left has taken their sacrifice and shredded it made it absolutely meaningless.

    The history of the West now:
    -- a bunch of quarreling peoples, always fighting with each other
    -- created silly things called "nations" and kept fighting with each other
    -- realized that these "nations" were all silly, as well as realized the error of their religion
    -- capitulated and surrendered to us
    -- accepted the Caliphate

    Obviously the Chinese historians will have a slightly different take.

    But in either case, knowing about these various wars and decisive (or as in the Somme indecisive) battles ... irrelevancies. Simply the foolishness of Western man before he perished.

    It's gotten to the point where every time I hear the national anthem play or see people saluting the flag, I get very uncomfortable. There's too much of a disconnect between the tradition and the healthy instincts reverence for the military represents and the insanity of what it's actually become.

    Speaking of which, there's a reality show on TLC called I am Jazz about this high school aged boy who thinks she's a girl and her family. I'll use the "she" pronoun because this one can actually pass as a girl, and seems to be an actual case of the condition. The whole family swears that Jazz was adamant that she was a girl as long as she could talk.

    It's incredible watching it and seeing what is being presented as healthy and normal.

    For example, Jazz is pumped full of testosterone blockers and estrogen stimulants so that she doesn't go through male puberty. She's talking to her doctor about how she hoped to grow breasts, but unfortunately the shape wasn't right. In other words, she just ended up with "man boobs" instead of actual girl breasts, which she expected to get from some hormone treatments.

    Jazz has been recoiling at getting "bottom surgery," but recently has come around to accepting the idea so that people won't be able to say she has a penis so she's not a girl. Nobody in the family would dare discourage this.

    Throughout the show there are ridiculous examples of what the family perceives as oppression. At one point she goes through another surgery to have a hormonal blocker implant and sees that on her hospital bracelet it says "Sex: M." They complain about this, but one would think that biological reality would trump feelings in a surgical setting in case something goes wrong.

    The backdrop of this is an intact family with a mom, dad, and four kids including Jazz. They all seem well adjusted and healthy, except for the fact that they're all ok with the mutilation of one member of the family.

    Watching the show, even I'm convinced that Jazz might be a real case of the transsexual condition. I'd draw the line at bottom surgery though, which should not be allowed.

    While Jazz may be happier as a girl, you see the broader effects of her activism. She goes around befriending people who are obviously insane. One character on the show mentions that at her child's school like 10-15 kids had recently come out as transgender. Everyone of course celebrates how wonderful this is.

    The whole thing is quite surreal and fascinating.

    It reminds me that I read in the NYT today that the latest estimate is that 0.6% of the population is now transgender, or about 1 in 150 people. Amazing that such a sizable minority was missed for all of human history up to this point.

Cooper meant at the time. Now I do. If I had a son, I would fine myself in the uncomfortable position of advising him to dodge the draft (if it existed).

    I agree with your earlier sentiments, but "stress of modern life"? What stress? No one is going to starve if the rains don't come. Scarlet fever or influenza isn't going to carry you children away. People in the west lead *incredibly* comfortable lives--heck they are ridiculously comfortable even compared to when i was a kid. (They'd have considered everything i had to endure--i.e. 60s suburban comfort--growing up as "triggering" and ask for a safe space.)

    The only stress i have is the feeling of being buried under the onslaught of leftist multiculti stupidity.... seeing my my nation die. That is stressful. But that stress can't be the *cause* of this lunacy it is the result of it.

    1. We all know this isn't about "accessing more capable Americans as potential recruits" it's about further politicizing the military. The left hates the military - it represents one of the vehicles of western ascendacy and its ranks typical schew politically conservative. So they picked up where they left off in the Clinton admin with socially re-engineering the military into another liberal jobs program.

    2. Keeping with the "liberal government jobs program" re-engineering of the military, that they will lose wars is probably seen a a feature, not a bug.

    3. How many people will flood the military to take advantage of the free sex change operation, and then get out? So just that much more deadweight in the ranks.

    But keep heart, dropping the "don't ask" policy really just revealed that many career females were lesbians, while dissapointingly few males have come out. I am curious how many transexuals actually are either already in the ranks or will now seek to join. I suspect not many.

    It's gotten to the point where every time I hear the national anthem play or see people saluting the flag, I get very uncomfortable. There's too much of a disconnect between the tradition and the healthy instincts reverence for the military represents and the insanity of what it's actually become.

    Speaking of which, there's a reality show on TLC called I am Jazz about this high school aged boy who thinks she's a girl and her family. I'll use the "she" pronoun because this one can actually pass as a girl, and seems to be an actual case of the condition. The whole family swears that Jazz was adamant that she was a girl as long as she could talk.

    It's incredible watching it and seeing what is being presented as healthy and normal.

    For example, Jazz is pumped full of testosterone blockers and estrogen stimulants so that she doesn't go through male puberty. She's talking to her doctor about how she hoped to grow breasts, but unfortunately the shape wasn't right. In other words, she just ended up with "man boobs" instead of actual girl breasts, which she expected to get from some hormone treatments.

    Jazz has been recoiling at getting "bottom surgery," but recently has come around to accepting the idea so that people won't be able to say she has a penis so she's not a girl. Nobody in the family would dare discourage this.

    Agree, but I go beyond that. I have refused to fly the flag or say the Pledge since Obama’s re-election. In 2008, I thought the country made a very, very stupid mistake…. in 2012 I realized that it got exactly what it wanted.

    I’ve got to the point where I simply hate this country — just like all the radical hippies did back in the Sixties. Back then, they hated it because they had absolutely no common values with “The Establishment” that controlled it.

    Now, the Counterculture has become The Establishment, and I’m the guy who has nothing in common with them.

    I refuse to have any sort of patriotic loyalty whatsoever. I have no respect for anyone in any of the institutions of society. I laugh bitterly when I hear stupid, flag-waving, patriotic conservatives repeating platitudes like “The troops are fighting for our freedom.” Freedom to do what? Hack babies to pieces and have anal sex?

    For thirty years I was a flag-waving, ultra-patriotic, right-wing, Republican-voting, Reaganite conservative rah-rah patriot.

    Not any more. Frankly, this country has become positively Satanic — and I say that despite the fact that I’m not exactly a Bible-thumpin’ holy roller. This country can’t collapse soon enough as far as I’m concerned. There’s nothing in it for me.

And they have no intention to serve.

    The only good thing about today's Appomattox in World War T is that it's over. And it looks like there will be no more wars. I mean, what's left? I can't think of anything.

    I know at this point people start to talk about polygamy, or incest, or pederasty, or child molesting, or bestiality. I suppose necrophilia and cannibalism are also on the table. But no one can claim genetic necessity or essential quality for these things, excepting for those who were "born" attracted to children, and we already know that sort of thing is just never going to be normalized. So maybe the Sex Wars are over. Or maybe not, they'll find something else to be persecuted about.

    Same goes for incest and bestiality. I mean, we have reached peak kink as far as this stuff goes.

    The other problem however is that feminists are surely to be opposed to polygamy. Because the vast majority of feminists are just negotiating -- in public -- what kind of terms they want in their own heterosexual marriages. And the vast majority of women do not want to share.

A few of the American-born kids I see are joining after working a few dead-end retail or labor jobs.

At his office they can only hire vets.

    Star ranks don't count. Neither do enlisted ranks or lieutenants. The ranks that actually control the troops and earn their loyalty through competent and decent leadership are the career field ranks, captains, majors, lieutenant colonels, and colonels in the army and equivalent ranks in the other services. Historically it is these ranks that have most often formed the nucleus of successful military coup d'etats, putschs, rebellions, etc. Think of Franco, Nasser, the Greek and Argentine Colonels, Gaddafi, etc. Today a successful military takeover would also require the participation of specialist ratings that fall outside of traditional military ranking systems, e.g., nuclear, computer, and logistics specialties.

    BO and his wrecking crew have had to tread carefully pruning these ranks of patriotic, non-ass-licking officers. These men are essential to the functioning of the military. Many are intensely troubled by what they see as the destruction of a once proud American institution. It won't take much more to set some of these men off.

    Settle down. The Left has continuously sought to degrade, humiliate, and embarrass our military since the collapse of the Red Hunts of the 1950s. Spitting on returning troops, highlighting failures in Vietnam, burning American flags, and, more recently, forcing diversity, women, homosexuality, and trannies into the ranks. Obama has accelerated it, and the Dems are fully behind it. Don’t think that it will all be forgotten by the troops after his presidency. The Left is setting itself up for a righteous reckoning from the U.S. military.

    Are the Marines such pusillanimous little crybabies that they’re all going to lay down their arms or desert to the enemy because a tiny handful of their comrades might avail themselves of an elective surgery?

    Let’s put it this way: it decreases morale. Which will engender either desertion from duty, or else rebellion. Neither are a good thing for the Left—as the Left is the group in power.

    “Humiliate” Get some perspective.

    Forcing the military to pretend that diversity is a strength, women are the equal of men, gays are perfectly normal, and trannism is perfectly ok is humiliation. Forcing people to say that a lie is a truth is a form of psychological manipulation and degradation. As Theodore Darymple has pointed out, this is precisely the point of Communist propaganda: to humiliate you by making saying that something is true which you know to be false.

    We have the most expensive and useless armed forces in the world, incapable of beating illiterate Afgan tribesmen after 15+ years now and trillions of dollars spent. The officers in charge, or at least the generals, could use some humiliation.

    A military handcuffed by rules that prevent the full out offensive that would rid us of these terrorists for at least two generations. If we’d handled the conquest of North America this way, we’d have never expanded outside the thirteen colonies and the south would have been successful in seceding.

    Quite frankly, the military has for fifty to eighty years been bubbling over in resentment over the restrictions on their warfare the post-WW2 rules imposed on them. Humiliating them with this garbage is only adding fuel to their fire.

    Polygamy won’t be a big deal. Polygamists can serve in the armed forces. They don’t have to show they only have one wife to pee in a public rest room. They can already marry: once, anyway. The only impact it will have is on the rising debt for social security and medical coverage.

    Same goes for incest and bestiality. I mean, we have reached peak kink as far as this stuff goes.

    The other problem however is that feminists are surely to be opposed to polygamy. Because the vast majority of feminists are just negotiating — in public — what kind of terms they want in their own heterosexual marriages. And the vast majority of women do not want to share.

    In fact we've hardly even started. The war will be over when every single sexual perversion has been normalised. And celebrated. How can you say we have marriage equality while we still have this absurd prejudice against inter-species marriage?

    You might object that the wilder sexual perversions only appeal to a tiny minority. You'd be wrong. In the celebrity-worshipping attention-seeking porn-obsessed cesspit that is modern western civilisation people will do anything, absolutely anything, in order to be cool and hip. Within ten years there'll be hordes of every kind of pervert you can imagine and many you can't imagine.

    And within a decade or two marriage will be recognised for every possible combination regardless of age or even species.

Our traditional cultural norms were unable to stand against the propaganda coming through the media and academia because there was no strong leader to rally the “norms” and lead a counterattack.

    Yes, but from the progressive perspective, transgenderism is supposed to be, you know, a real thing.

    Based on what I've seen over the last decade, I don't think it's gay men driving this recent rise. Sure, gay men are often extremely jealous of women and the scarcity of tops is a commonly discussed issue. But most transexuals never actually get the gruesome (and in MtFs' case extremely laborious to maintain) genital modifications. And there aren't all that many men around who want a gal with a "ladypenis" (I wish I was joking with the "ladypenis" part).

    The real boom seems to be with transexuals looking for women. Women are much more likely to overlook matters of sexual attraction and much easier to guilt trip into it if necessary. Most such trannies are successful in convincing their wives or girlfriends to stay with them, or in finding some other woman desperate or brainwashed enough to go with it. I see a lot of new transexuals of all kinds around, but autogynephiles and lesbians seem to be more and more overrepresented among these new generations as time goes by. Butch lesbians are pretty much going extinct.

    The real mystery, though, are straight girls who transition wanting to become gay men. I think Warren Beatty's daughter is one. At least with MtFs, there's some demand for shemales. Well, Stephen Ira Beatty is at least rich. God knows what the hell the rest of these girls are thinking their lives are gonna be like.

    It's gotten to the point where every time I hear the national anthem play or see people saluting the flag, I get very uncomfortable. There's too much of a disconnect between the tradition and the healthy instincts reverence for the military represents and the insanity of what it's actually become.

    Speaking of which, there's a reality show on TLC called I am Jazz about this high school aged boy who thinks she's a girl and her family. I'll use the "she" pronoun because this one can actually pass as a girl, and seems to be an actual case of the condition. The whole family swears that Jazz was adamant that she was a girl as long as she could talk.

    It's incredible watching it and seeing what is being presented as healthy and normal.

    For example, Jazz is pumped full of testosterone blockers and estrogen stimulants so that she doesn't go through male puberty. She's talking to her doctor about how she hoped to grow breasts, but unfortunately the shape wasn't right. In other words, she just ended up with "man boobs" instead of actual girl breasts, which she expected to get from some hormone treatments.

    Jazz has been recoiling at getting "bottom surgery," but recently has come around to accepting the idea so that people won't be able to say she has a penis so she's not a girl. Nobody in the family would dare discourage this.

    Throughout the show there are ridiculous examples of what the family perceives as oppression. At one point she goes through another surgery to have a hormonal blocker implant and sees that on her hospital bracelet it says "Sex: M." They complain about this, but one would think that biological reality would trump feelings in a surgical setting in case something goes wrong.

    The backdrop of this is an intact family with a mom, dad, and four kids including Jazz. They all seem well adjusted and healthy, except for the fact that they're all ok with the mutilation of one member of the family.

    Watching the show, even I'm convinced that Jazz might be a real case of the transsexual condition. I'd draw the line at bottom surgery though, which should not be allowed.

    While Jazz may be happier as a girl, you see the broader effects of her activism. She goes around befriending people who are obviously insane. One character on the show mentions that at her child's school like 10-15 kids had recently come out as transgender. Everyone of course celebrates how wonderful this is.

    The whole thing is quite surreal and fascinating.

    It reminds me that I read in the NYT today that the latest estimate is that 0.6% of the population is now transgender, or about 1 in 150 people. Amazing that such a sizable minority was missed for all of human history up to this point.

    Perhaps, but women are pretty clearly at the bottom of the faux-victim hierarchy. The precepts of feminism will be betrayed without fanfare should the interests of another component of the left-wing coalition demand it. See the coddling of Muslims and every other group more patriarchal than white men (i.e., nearly all of them) for proof. Indeed, feminism itself has arguably been little but a profound own-goal for everyone except crypto-lesbians and ultra high status males.

    I really agree.

    Like immigration, it seems to really have paid off for the first generation and doomed all later ones to misery.

    The boomer women got college degrees, good jobs & nice husbands, whom they could divorce & replace.

    Now, men have gotten gun shy on marriage & remarriage while schools are flooded with other female students. Too much competition for jobs and fewer willing husbands.

    Starting at 16 or so we staring hearing this drum beat in our head “find a husband, have a baby” over and over. The longer it goes unanswered the crazier we become.

  92. There used to be something called an “approved pattern of service” for military officers who wanted higher rank. For example, in the Navy you needed to command different kinds of ships, have postings in different parts of the world, have combat experience, etc.

    Now, of course, it’s different.

    1) Graduate from academy (white male).
    2) Discover self to be black; get promoted. Now you have valuable minority experience.
    3) Discover self to be female; get promoted. Now you have valuable female experience.
    4) Discover self to be “non-binary queer over-Trans”; get promoted. Now you have highly prestigious “First of your kind” experience.
    5) As a general officer, you reassert your white male identity, complete your service, and then get hired as a CNN analyst.

    Ronald Blythe's The View in Winter has the recollections of a few of those WWI veterans. They are very moving in their matter-of-fact recounting of unimaginable horrors and suffering.

    The hour when earth's foundations fled,
    Followed their mercenary calling,
    And took their wages, and are dead.

    Their shoulders held the sky suspended;

    And saved the sum of things for pay.

    Neither can they for homosexuality or transgenderism. Or, if they can, I don’t see why they can’t for the other stuff. I’ve yet to hear a convincing argument for the genetic basis or “essential quality” (whatever that is) of either. You could just as easily assert pedophiles are “born that way.”

    I don’t know that. In fact, pedophilia, or at least the post-pubescent version of it, has been seen as normal before. Ancient Greece is the obvious example.

    As to being incapable of beating Afghan tribesmen–please. They could brush them aside, destroy them completely in about a month, and open up Afghanistan for American men to come settle … *if* that was the mission. But it’s not. They are trying to “nation build” some sort of stable and democratic Afghanistan. And yes, in that they are not succeeding. Big surprise.

    Based on what I’ve seen over the last decade, I don’t think it’s gay men driving this recent rise. Sure, gay men are often extremely jealous of women and the scarcity of tops is a commonly discussed issue. But most transexuals never actually get the gruesome (and in MtFs’ case extremely laborious to maintain) genital modifications. And there aren’t all that many men around who want a gal with a “ladypenis” (I wish I was joking with the “ladypenis” part).

    The real boom seems to be with transexuals looking for women. Women are much more likely to overlook matters of sexual attraction and much easier to guilt trip into it if necessary. Most such trannies are successful in convincing their wives or girlfriends to stay with them, or in finding some other woman desperate or brainwashed enough to go with it. I see a lot of new transexuals of all kinds around, but autogynephiles and lesbians seem to be more and more overrepresented among these new generations as time goes by. Butch lesbians are pretty much going extinct.

    The real mystery, though, are straight girls who transition wanting to become gay men. I think Warren Beatty’s daughter is one. At least with MtFs, there’s some demand for shemales. Well, Stephen Ira Beatty is at least rich. God knows what the hell the rest of these girls are thinking their lives are gonna be like.

    It's gotten to the point where every time I hear the national anthem play or see people saluting the flag, I get very uncomfortable. There's too much of a disconnect between the tradition and the healthy instincts reverence for the military represents and the insanity of what it's actually become.

    Speaking of which, there's a reality show on TLC called I am Jazz about this high school aged boy who thinks she's a girl and her family. I'll use the "she" pronoun because this one can actually pass as a girl, and seems to be an actual case of the condition. The whole family swears that Jazz was adamant that she was a girl as long as she could talk.

    It's incredible watching it and seeing what is being presented as healthy and normal.

    For example, Jazz is pumped full of testosterone blockers and estrogen stimulants so that she doesn't go through male puberty. She's talking to her doctor about how she hoped to grow breasts, but unfortunately the shape wasn't right. In other words, she just ended up with "man boobs" instead of actual girl breasts, which she expected to get from some hormone treatments.

    Jazz has been recoiling at getting "bottom surgery," but recently has come around to accepting the idea so that people won't be able to say she has a penis so she's not a girl. Nobody in the family would dare discourage this.

    Throughout the show there are ridiculous examples of what the family perceives as oppression. At one point she goes through another surgery to have a hormonal blocker implant and sees that on her hospital bracelet it says "Sex: M." They complain about this, but one would think that biological reality would trump feelings in a surgical setting in case something goes wrong.

    The backdrop of this is an intact family with a mom, dad, and four kids including Jazz. They all seem well adjusted and healthy, except for the fact that they're all ok with the mutilation of one member of the family.

    Watching the show, even I'm convinced that Jazz might be a real case of the transsexual condition. I'd draw the line at bottom surgery though, which should not be allowed.

    While Jazz may be happier as a girl, you see the broader effects of her activism. She goes around befriending people who are obviously insane. One character on the show mentions that at her child's school like 10-15 kids had recently come out as transgender. Everyone of course celebrates how wonderful this is.

    The whole thing is quite surreal and fascinating.

    It reminds me that I read in the NYT today that the latest estimate is that 0.6% of the population is now transgender, or about 1 in 150 people. Amazing that such a sizable minority was missed for all of human history up to this point.

    I think there is something in the amazing rise of TG numbers. Bailey and others have noted that 80% of gay men are bottoms. TG becoming legit means that sissies can leapfrog the whole gay man thing.
     
    Yes, but from the progressive perspective, transgenderism is supposed to be, you know, a real thing. Based on Science, Rationality, Logic, and all that stuff that reactionary Badwhites supposedly dislike. Its not supposed to merely be an alternate erotic strategy for procuring access to straight dudes' weenies. I'm not saying you're wrong by any means, but some guy dolling himself up for the explicit purpose of getting drilled by a more compelling breed of man, ain't exactly what we're told is supposed to constitute so-called "transgenderism." Even among people who take this sort of thing seriously, I think they might (disdainfully?) term that sort of thing as "transvestism."

    Real motivation doesn’t matter as long as one says they’re a transexual. You could proclaim yourself transexual today, no dolling up necessary.

    There used to be something called an "approved pattern of service" for military officers who wanted higher rank. For example, in the Navy you needed to command different kinds of ships, have postings in different parts of the world, have combat experience, etc.

    Now, of course, it's different.

    1) Graduate from academy (white male).
    2) Discover self to be black; get promoted. Now you have valuable minority experience.
    3) Discover self to be female; get promoted. Now you have valuable female experience.
    4) Discover self to be "non-binary queer over-Trans"; get promoted. Now you have highly prestigious "First of your kind" experience.

    “Humiliate” Get some perspective. We have the most expensive and useless armed forces in the world, incapable of beating illiterate Afgan tribesmen after 15+ years now and trillions of dollars spent. The officers in charge, or at least the generals, could use some humiliation.
     
    Agree on expense of our armed forces.

    But "humiliate" is *exactly* right. Maybe you're not a man. Men--civilized men--will throw in with a project they believe in, give their time, energy, effort and maybe even their life. But when you make it a joke, then you make them, their efforts and sacrifice a joke. That's exactly what the left is doing with this crap, it's seeking precisely to *humiliate* normal American men serving their nation, make it a big fricking joke, strip them of any pride and hence any feeling and willingness to sacrifice or defend their nation.

    As to being incapable of beating Afghan tribesmen--please. They could brush them aside, destroy them completely in about a month, and open up Afghanistan for American men to come settle ... *if* that was the mission. But it's not. They are trying to "nation build" some sort of stable and democratic Afghanistan. And yes, in that they are not succeeding. Big surprise. The left has had a "war on poverty" for 50+, spent trillions ... and never seems to be able to win. My school district has a mission to "close the racial achievement gap". I can guarantee you that come 15 or 50 years the racial achievement gap will still be there--and won't go away without genetic engineering sufficient to actually eliminate what the races are.

    I think it's fair to say that 99% of the people clamoring for acceptance of TG's in the armed forces, just as with women on ships, subs, and combat units, and as with open gays and lesbians, have never served in the armed forces of the United States of America. And they have no intention to serve.

    The only good thing about today's Appomattox in World War T is that it's over. And it looks like there will be no more wars. I mean, what's left? I can't think of anything.

    I know at this point people start to talk about polygamy, or incest, or pederasty, or child molesting, or bestiality. I suppose necrophilia and cannibalism are also on the table. But no one can claim genetic necessity or essential quality for these things, excepting for those who were "born" attracted to children, and we already know that sort of thing is just never going to be normalized. So maybe the Sex Wars are over. Or maybe not, they'll find something else to be persecuted about.

    Why? What’s the point?

    One aspect of the multiculti lunacy is that all this prior history–especially the military sacrifice–had *no* point. Those folks *thought* they were suffering and dying for their nation, to ensure national arrangements beneficial to themselves and their posterity. It was all for naught. Utterly and completely pointless. The left has taken their sacrifice and shredded it made it absolutely meaningless.

    The history of the West now:
    — a bunch of quarreling peoples, always fighting with each other
    — created silly things called “nations” and kept fighting with each other
    — realized that these “nations” were all silly, as well as realized the error of their religion
    — capitulated and surrendered to us
    — accepted the Caliphate

    Obviously the Chinese historians will have a slightly different take.

    But in either case, knowing about these various wars and decisive (or as in the Somme indecisive) battles … irrelevancies. Simply the foolishness of Western man before he perished.

    Based on what I've seen over the last decade, I don't think it's gay men driving this recent rise. Sure, gay men are often extremely jealous of women and the scarcity of tops is a commonly discussed issue. But most transexuals never actually get the gruesome (and in MtFs' case extremely laborious to maintain) genital modifications. And there aren't all that many men around who want a gal with a "ladypenis" (I wish I was joking with the "ladypenis" part).

    The real boom seems to be with transexuals looking for women. Women are much more likely to overlook matters of sexual attraction and much easier to guilt trip into it if necessary. Most such trannies are successful in convincing their wives or girlfriends to stay with them, or in finding some other woman desperate or brainwashed enough to go with it. I see a lot of new transexuals of all kinds around, but autogynephiles and lesbians seem to be more and more overrepresented among these new generations as time goes by. Butch lesbians are pretty much going extinct.

    The real mystery, though, are straight girls who transition wanting to become gay men. I think Warren Beatty's daughter is one. At least with MtFs, there's some demand for shemales. Well, Stephen Ira Beatty is at least rich. God knows what the hell the rest of these girls are thinking their lives are gonna be like.

    Polygamy won't be a big deal. Polygamists can serve in the armed forces. They don't have to show they only have one wife to pee in a public rest room. They can already marry: once, anyway. The only impact it will have is on the rising debt for social security and medical coverage.

    Same goes for incest and bestiality. I mean, we have reached peak kink as far as this stuff goes.

They love playing the Ancient Greece trump card to demonstrate that civilization and homosexuality have gone together. It can be done. But gay Greek culture was specifically about youths going through a right of passage with young adults. You were a pervert if you continued your relationship into older age.

    Could you have characters with names like Dago Red and Spearchucker Jones today?

    No, the deafening silence over World War One is something of a surprise to me. I haven't seen so many war anniversaries passed over in silence since the centennial of the Spanish American War. Remember the Maine!

    I agree. Given the enormous impact of WWI on western civilization, it’s anniversary seems very little noticed.

    Pedophilia will take too long
     
    But there are lots and lots of homosexuals who'd love to see pederasty normalised. It's probably a long-term goal though.

    In the short-term I think incest could be next. I'd expect that to take five years to be fully legalised and maybe another five years before incestuous marriages are recognised.

    “there are lots and lots of homosexuals who’d love to see pederasty normalized”

    What is the term for attraction to pubescent kids? Hebephilia? I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that a majority of homos are more hebephilic than attracted to men in general, judging by the body types they promote. See: high fashion and “twinks.” They love playing the Ancient Greece trump card to demonstrate that civilization and homosexuality have gone together. It can be done. But gay Greek culture was specifically about youths going through a right of passage with young adults. You were a pervert if you continued your relationship into older age.

    Sex with adolescents will be much quicker to normalize than pedophilia proper, especially considering the leverage possessed by youth-obsessed homos.

    Agreed. There's no way they're going to be crazy enough to propose lowering the age of consent to 12, even though they'd love to. So they'll aim to lower it by a couple of years at first. Hollywood will be in the vanguard with saccharine-drenched love stories about the tragic results of our crazy prejudice against people who just want the right to love whomever they choose. On this issue they'll be careful to boil the frog very slowly. But I can't see any way they won't push for it gradually and carefully, one step at a time. It's what a large number of male homosexuals want, and in our society what male homosexuals want, male homosexuals get.

    Lesbians will be strongly in favour of it as well. Not because of any great interest on their part in adolescents as sex objects but because it would make their recruiting drives so much easier. They do like to recruit the confused and the vulnerable.

    I don't see lesbians as drivers of this, because women already have plenty of free, unencumbered access to children. Society doesn't look askance at them for choosing to hang out with kids. Gays will get their way without them. Lesbians, whom I might as well call feminists, have been lagging behind gays for quite some time. WWT was a hundred times more about male-to-females than the other way around.

    As in most other fields, men excel.

    Star ranks don't count. Neither do enlisted ranks or lieutenants. The ranks that actually control the troops and earn their loyalty through competent and decent leadership are the career field ranks, captains, majors, lieutenant colonels, and colonels in the army and equivalent ranks in the other services. Historically it is these ranks that have most often formed the nucleus of successful military coup d'etats, putschs, rebellions, etc. Think of Franco, Nasser, the Greek and Argentine Colonels, Gaddafi, etc. Today a successful military takeover would also require the participation of specialist ratings that fall outside of traditional military ranking systems, e.g., nuclear, computer, and logistics specialties.

    BO and his wrecking crew have had to tread carefully pruning these ranks of patriotic, non-ass-licking officers. These men are essential to the functioning of the military. Many are intensely troubled by what they see as the destruction of a once proud American institution. It won't take much more to set some of these men off. I wouldn't care to predict the results should this happen.

    The dynamics of the USMC would also include staff NCO’s, as well as sergeants. USMC small unit command, especially specialized infantry operations(snipers, recon, CSO’s, etc), is the near exclusive domain of NCO’s.

    These roles are often performed in 3rd world .mils by the company and field grade officers you list.

    But when you make it a joke, then you make them, their efforts and sacrifice a joke. That’s exactly what the left is doing with this crap, it’s seeking precisely to *humiliate* normal American men serving their nation, make it a big fricking joke, strip them of any pride and hence any feeling and willingness to sacrifice or defend their nation.
     
    How on earth does offering an elective surgery, which 99.9% or so of Marines will never once consider, "make their efforts a joke"? Do you honestly believe the Marines are so weak and pathetic? I for one think the institution and the men that won at Iwo Jima can survive the horror-show of having to say "no" to an elective surgical procedure. But hey, I'm a leftist. I guess you have to be on the right to truly know that our armed forces can be humiliated more easily than a third-grade child.

    Have you ever served, let alone in the Corps?

    Nonsense like this is further reinforcement for Heinleinian citizenship. That’s hopefully what we’ll do on the other side of the coming break down.
