From the BBC:

‘We’re being pressured into sex by some trans women’

By Caroline Lowbridge
BBC News

Is a lesbian transphobic if she does not want to have sex with trans women? Some lesbians say they are increasingly being pressured and coerced into accepting trans women as partners – then shunned and even threatened for speaking out. Several have spoken to the BBC, along with trans women who are concerned about the issue too.

Personally, I can never remember what terms like “trans women” and “trans men” mean since they could equally likely have opposite meanings. Instead, I use the comic-book redolent term “ex-men” for heterosexual dudes, often highly aggressive high IQ ones, who have a sex fetish about dressing up as a woman while still having sex with women. (The ex-men are different from the drag queen types who have highly effeminate since childhood and who are sexually oriented toward catching a man.)

Getting hit on by men in dresses with a line of politically correct patter has been a problem for lesbians for decades. Back in the 20th Century, the Michigan Womyn’s Music festival banned ex-men from its premises so that lesbians could just sit in folding chairs and listen to the Indigo Girls without getting pestered by men in frocks insinuating that if they were really good feminists they’d tear down the “cotton ceiling.”

That worked okay for 40 years, until the Michigan Womyn’s Musical festival got steamrolled by Trans Power during the Great Awokening. From Wikipedia:

Michfest’s stated intention of admitting only “womyn-born womyn”[6] and excluding transgender women led LGBT advocacy group Equality Michigan to boycott the event in 2014 and drew criticism from the Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and the National LGBTQ Task Force. The festival held its final event in August 2015.

Back to BBC:

Warning: Story contains strong language

“I’ve had someone saying they would rather kill me than Hitler,” says 24-year-old Jennie*.

“They said they would strangle me with a belt if they were in a room with me and Hitler. That was so bizarrely violent, just because I won’t have sex with trans women.”

Jennie is a lesbian woman. She says she is only sexually attracted to women who are biologically female and have vaginas. She therefore only has sex and relationships with women who are biologically female.

Jennie doesn’t think this should be controversial, but not everyone agrees. She has been described as transphobic, a genital fetishist, a pervert and a “terf” – a trans exclusionary radical feminist.

“There’s a common argument that they try and use that goes ‘What if you met a woman in a bar and she’s really beautiful and you got on really well and you went home and you discovered that she has a penis? Would you just not be interested?'” says Jennie, who lives in London and works in fashion.

“Yes, because even if someone seems attractive at first you can go off them. I just don’t possess the capacity to be sexually attracted to people who are biologically male, regardless of how they identify.”

…. Ultimately, it has been difficult to determine the true scale of the problem because there has been little research on this topic – only one survey to my knowledge. However, those affected have told me the pressure comes from a minority of trans women, as well as activists who are not necessarily trans themselves.

They described being harassed and silenced if they tried to discuss the issue openly. I received online abuse myself when I tried to find interviewees using social media.

How many ex-men have a good laugh after their ridiculous arguments work on confused young women? Or do ex-men tend to be so self-righteous, narcissistic, and entitled that they think they deserve to dress up like a woman and have sex with women?

    “Transvestite” has a clinical definition, viz. heterosexual men with a paraphilic fetish for compulsive cross-dressing, from which they derive sexual excitement. Dressing in womens' clothing causes sexual arousal in the transvestite—a fetish, not an identity issue. (Nor to be confused with “drag queens”, who dress up for entertainment purposes.)
    In DSM-III, the disorder is called Transvestism. In DSM-III-R, DSM-IV, DSM-IV-TR, it's called Transvestic Fetishism. DSM-5 re-names it Transvestic Disorder; adds specifier with Autogynephilia—a transvestite is an autogynephile who doesn't seek to live as a woman full-time. “Transvestite” does not mean those with persistent identity issues who desire to live as the opposite sex (Transsexualism/Gender Identity Disorder/Gender Dysphoria), although it may progress to that. From Psychosexual Disorders/Paraphilias in DSM-III:


    302.30 Transvestism
    The essential feature is recurrent and persistent cross-dressing by a heterosexual male that during at least the initial phase of the illness is for the purpose of sexual excitement. Interference with the cross-dressing results in intense frustration. This diagnosis is not made in those rare instances in which the disturbance has evolved into Transsexualism.
    Differential diagnosis. In Transsexualism there is a persistent wish to be rid of one's own genitals and to live as a member of the other sex...when Transvestism evolves into Transsexualism, the diagnosis of Transvestism is changed to Transsexualism.
    Diagnostic criteria for Transvestism:
    A. Recurrent and persistent cross-dressing by a heterosexual male.
    B. Use of cross-dressing for the purpose of sexual excitement, at least initially in the course of the disorder.
    C. Intense frustration when the cross-dressing is interfered with.
    D. Does not meet the criteria for Transsexualism.
     
    Further clinical description of a transvestite:

    The average compulsive transvestite, to all appearances, is leading a normal life. Often he is married, has children, and is a good family man and provider. He may seem moody, and in some cases he drinks too much. His vita sexualis is adequate, but his libidinal interest is lukewarm.
    Occasionally—perhaps once a week, perhaps only a few times a year—his inner tension mounts until it seems to be no longer bearable. If he cannot relieve it by drinking himself into a stupor—milder degrees of intoxication may only increase his urge or make him incautious—he may contrive to send his family away for an evening or a Sunday. He then dresses in his wife's clothes, either a few specific articles—panties, bra, hose or/and shoes...Often he adds heavy makeup. He may sit quietly enjoying the feeling of exhilaration, or he stands or parades before a mirror, sometimes for hours. His sexual excitement leads him to masturbate, occasionally more than once. Some men afflicted with transvestism have used their offices after hours, dressing up in clothes they kept locked away...the compulsive transvestite remains a male, derives sexual gratification through use of his penis, and wishes to remain a male.

  2. I think the endgame of all this shaming (and the root cause for accusations of “homo/trans/fat/etc-phobia”) is to level the playing field for the unattractive.

    ... hilarious, but not exactly new;
    the Weathermen tried it half a century ago. Black or White, male, female or whatever, attractive or yucky, refusing to boink it just because you find it physically repulsive is divisive and therefore bad for the struggle (and makes you a baaad communist).
    Of course this kind of rape (let´s call a spade a spade) greatly contributed to their demise (but the survivors are back on the holier-than-thou trip again).

    I think it´s less the reign of terror of the ugly than that only the repellent are drawn to these ideas.

  3. You guys talking about intimate relationships is hilarious.

    Like any of you bigots have seen a real live naked woman….

    The LBGBQTXYZ ad infinitum CuntMenOddities are an issue onto themselves. Confused, debauched, perpetually lashing out at Society and declaring there is no such thing as Normal, they are bound to turn on each other just like the degenerate, hodgepodge of vile excuses for Humanity that comprised the Chaz/Chop fiasco. Let alone, they disintegrate further into self centered and mutually exclusive micro-factions.

    Sexual Deviants are far more likely to die from suicide than homicide. In North Dallas, the Fags were getting beaten and robbed by Negroes regularly, but the media refused to report the race of the perpetrators, and, instead, asked for the public's assistance by broadcasting either a very generic description of the suspect's vehicle or no details at all. Near as I know, none of those who were apprehended turned out to be devout Christian missionaries. Just opportunistic Negroids looking for the Easy Money from Soft Targets.

    A solo entity, though I may currently be, I am certainly no stranger to the female anatomy. Not only that, but lithe and limber feminine forms with attractive visages. As I've grown older, my ability to date such ladies has been reduced, but I still manage to make friends and go out with the occasional pretty, young Vixen. I refuse to settle for a Woman that I don't find physically alluring, and I am hesitant about females that I believe to be promiscuous or socially incompatible. Unlike the majority of Queers and Lesbians, I believe that Sex should be shared between two people who love each other, rather than just coupling like dogs in heat.

    Bullies? Being Bullied as a Minority in every school that I attended was what made me strong and resilient. I've often referred to my graduation from "Punk Ass White Boy" in Elementary School to "Crazy Ass White Boy" by the time I reached High School. I thank God, everyday, for the education that I received in The School of Hard Knocks. You can't obtain a degree in Advanced Negro Reality at Harvard.

    I'd be happy to give you a break! What would you prefer to have broken? How about I shatter your Ebony Obelisk with my big, bad, black boot?

    > Quit being bullies. The LGBTQ community has enough issues as it is with homicide and Christian persecution without jerkholes like you guys harassing them for existing and making fun of them.

    Right, let's talk about issues of homicide and persecution. The BBC article and Steve's post are specifically about Transgender women harassing inviting lesbians to have sex with them, so let's ditch the LGBQ and stick with the T. Fair?

    Luckily, the esteemed and impartial Human Rights Campaign released "A National Epidemic: Fatal Anti-Transgender Violence in the United States in 2019" in November of that year, "honoring the at least 22 transgender people and gender non-conforming people killed in 2019 and detailing the contributing factors that lead to this tragic violence." Rod Dreher read the report and googled each incident, I summarized that here.

    For the folks with marquee roles in the HRC report, living the Transgender dream meant having friends and acquaintances who were also in and around this lifestyle. Turns out that hanging out with users, pimps, johns, the violence-prone, and the mentally unstable isn't a recipe for a long and fulfilling life.

    Who knew?

    Ebony Obelisk, you have a problem. But it's not Christian jerkhole bully persecutors. Some free advice: stop projecting.

    "The LGBTQ community has enough issues as it is with homicide and Christian persecution without jerkholes like you guys harassing them for existing and making fun of them."

    Cry me a river.

    Black Hard Erect Pillar, the mere lack of subtlety in your obviously unironic and very silly username predisposes me to refuse your whiny plea.

    I don't give a flip what issues they have. I have a real issue with their very existence as a "community". I dislike on principle the notion of what Another Dad calls "minoritianism" and what I call " the tail wagging the dog". These sexual oddities want to be noticed and lauded for their differences rather than making any effort to fit in with the majority. That's not how it works in a rational, functioning society. Our is neither at the moment but I still have hope. I may not harass and bully them but I certainly won't make any effort to stop those who do.

  5. Male sexual desire may be the most powerful force among humans. Autogynephiles get the most pleasure from the belief they are actually women. What could be more arousing to them then than having a lesbian suck your female penis.
    If only Feminism Inc. was interested in helping actual women instead of just being a clan of upper class hags demanding a higher share of elite jobs.

    They flatter themselves.

    Anyway, the trans movement is clearly anti-woman in all its variants.

    Transmen, like little Elliott Page, lose the intrinsic power of womanhood and instead become dickless, sexless man-equins. Transwomen are either the aggro former Navy seal/CEO type Steve talks about or twee misfits like the singer from Against Me.

    In “Transgender Dysphoria Blues,” Laura Jane Grace (formerly Tom Gabel, born in Fort Benning and son of a US Army major) sings “You want them to see you / Like they see every other girl/ They just see a faggot / They’ll hold their breath not to catch the sick.”

    The obsession with how “you want them to see you” is the fundamental issue with this mental disorder, as it is with many mental problems. They are tasked with convincing everyone else that not only are trannies not delusional, it is everyone else with the problem recognizing reality.

    Misfit? More like attention hungry, perverted little scumbag. Gabel's pathology is rooted in fetish and off the charts narcissism, just like the troon CEOs' and Navy Seals'. Nothing else.

    And "they just see a faggot"? Rich coming from a man with a wife (now former), a kid, a successful career and a bunch of (braindead) fans, and who was and is part of the then culturally ascendant (now flat out dominant) woke circles. Sure, he's a ratty, worthless little whiner, but hardly a "misfit" in our world, sadly.

    If it weren’t for the fact that most lesbians are unattractive this would be an even bigger issue. But even so, trannies are essentially Nietzschean monsters who will impose their memetic fantasies on the rest of us whether we like it or not.

    I was thinking about trannies and intersectionality while working in the countryside the other day. I have a lot of time to ponder things while out in the valley among the crops and cattle.

    Trannies have the most potent combination of grievance and aggression of anyone in America. This is why they have been embraced as the shock troops/special forces of the democrats. Not only do they despise legacy America; they are physically intimidating, filled with (often homicidal) rage, politically fanatical and fully willing to break norms and engage in violence to get what they want.

    I've noticed a paradox about lesbians: the feminine ones tend to be the most averse to having anything to do with men while the butch ones often don't have much discomfort with being "one of the guys." Again, the former have to deal with unwanted sexual attention, the latter generally don't. There's also supposedly a "steel over velvet vs. velvet over steel" paradox that describes butch vs. femme lesbians in their own world, or so I have heard.

    There does seem to be a significant overlap with various personality disorders primarily if not exclusively associated with "high-functioning" autistic spectrum traits.
    Including the inability to "read" social signals, meltdown rages, extreme solipsism, obsessions, delusions about one's body and so on (Charles "the Mad", VI of France went one regal step further and was convinced he was made of glass, not merely a woman).

  9. So trannies, who I remind all are less than a percent (and probably declining) of our population, are now divided among
    A) Asexual high achieving nerds who want to be able to correct and lord over people (“Steve’s Girls”),
    B) Really really really thirsty homosexuals who want to bag straight guys and are gambling it all on ambient light (“almost all trannies through all of history”),
    C) Straight guys, especially rapists, who want to force sex onto women (“Alden’s boys”), and
    D) British and Canadian entertainers.
    And Hollywood celebrities who killed somebody and needed an alibi quick.

    Once again, the thing I find so convincing about the “ex-men” is how much they in no way consistently act like aggressively horny men hard up for willing partners to play along with their little fetish.

    Some butch lesbians would look good enough if they dressed up and put on some makeup. Some femmes are pretty dumpy. The thing is that they don't put much effort into looking good for men.

    I've worked with quite a few butch lesbians in blue collar jobs. They're not bad at work. They don't take advantage of their femininity as much as other women, e.g. they don't call in sick as much and they don't always ask men to do their job for them. But they still do abuse it somewhat, just less.

    My beef with lesbians is their involvement with family law, i.e. straight people's business. They should GTFO, but they can't resist the vulnerable easy pickings that young single moms are. In the 80s/90s they were all over that, and it has had disastrous consequences.

    They also have no business teaching young men, and should be purged from universities when they seize control of them. They migrate to places that provide sexual opportunities and can fly under the radar because they are female.

    I'm ambivalent about the tranny attack on lesbians, but ultimately the trannies are the bigger threat because of their fanaticism and hatred of truth. Institutional lesbians are just kind of seedy opportunists who are content with having some status in the preexisting system. Trannies are never going to be satisfied until the world literally trembles in their presence.

    Some butch lesbians would look good enough if they dressed up and put on some makeup. Some femmes are pretty dumpy. The thing is that they don't put much effort into looking good for men.

    I've worked with quite a few butch lesbians in blue collar jobs. They're not bad at work. They don't take advantage of their femininity as much as other women, e.g. they don't call in sick as much and they don't always ask men to do their job for them. But they still do abuse it somewhat, just less.

    Now that I think about it, it's even more inexplicable that the hammer on the pistol was cocked. As a single action weapon, pulling the trigger does NOT fire the gun unless you first manually cock the hammer. "Cold" or not, what reason was there to have the hammer cocked in a rehearsal?

    You'll note in the linked video, the narrator uses the traditional "cowboy load" - he leaves 1 chamber empty and LOWERS the hammer onto the empty chamber. This way you were much less likely to accidentally shoot yourself (or anyone else). When you were ready to fire the gun, you would cock the hammer with your thumb, which would rotate the cylinder to the next (live) chamber and then you could pull the trigger and shoot.

    Unless maybe Baldwin cocked the hammer and pulled the trigger as part of his practice pantomime?

    I strongly suspected it would be a revolver with a non top break, non swing out cylinder. Typical of those from the bulk of the 19th century.

    You have to load them one at a time and unload them one chamber at a time with the push rod under the barrel. I suspect the crew who were apparently plinking with it earlier in the day left a cartridge in one of the 6 chambers and it was just never checked.

    Additionally, I'm pretty sure this is a single action revolver and the hammer would have had to be pulled back to cock it, rotating the cylinder as it's cocked. Anyone in front of the revolver would be able to see the .45 bullet sitting there through the open front of the cylinder, in the cylinder before the barrel quite easily waiting to rotate into line with the barrel as the hammer was pulled back.

    These accidents, a bit like most aviation accidents, are as Swiss cheese where all the holes in a block line up.

    There's definitely a big payout coming up.

    Now if the trannies then claim to be biological men and hit on them, there is always “metoo” and accusations of sexual harassment. And that’s in addition to exposing the fake women act in the first place.

    That was the normal practice before transfer bars were invented and used to block the hammer from striking the firing pin in revolvers.

    Older revolvers had nothing blocking the hammer from striking the firing pin, which meant that even an uncocked hammer could hit the firing pin hard enough to detonate a round if the revolver, esp. the back of the hammer, was struck by something else (or if the gun was dropped, etc.). Or the pin was on the hammer itself, with the same end result if the hammer was struck.

    Modern revolvers have a transfer bar. There is a piece of metal blocking the hammer from the separate firing pin, that will only drop below if the trigger is pulled. As the trigger is pulled, the metal block drops down, allowing the hammer to strike the firing pin, which in turn hits the rear of the cartridge. It’s a great safety system, but it does make the trigger a bit on the gritty side - not an issue on a self-defense gun, but a bit of a drag on a target or a hunting gun.

    1. Thanks for that article

    2. Glad to see you've chosen to join Team Reality, although you go even further than I would. He should be booked for manslaughter.

    3. Baldwin had to perform two separate & discrete actions to get the gun to shoot, from your description. He pointed the gun at a person (well, a camera with two people in close proximity behind it, good enough); he performed these two separate and discrete actions, knowing that there was live ammo on the set... Why was there ammo? Any ammo?

    4. The article states that the gun had been locked up (putting paid to the nonsense about it being on a cart) but the ammo was on the cart....

    5. Article also states that the armorer should have been the person to hand the gun to the actor. AD should not have been involved. This is another interesting fact that was not covered in any of the previous articles I read. I don't see how this is Covid-related. That makes zero sense to me.

    I think that Baldwin's PR team is trying to hang this on Covid rules. They are stupid, but this is a flimsy ruse. There is zero reason why Covid rules dictated why the AD had to be a step between armorer and actor. The opposite, in fact. More people, more chances for virus to spread.

    Apparently the armorer was on set, and showed the weapon to the AD before the AD handed it to Baldwin. But they appear to be trying to shift most of the blame onto the [white middle aged male] AD instead of the [semi-Hispanic female] armorer who had the primary job of ensuring the weapon's safety.

    At this point Baldwin appears to probably be off the hook, at least in his capacity as an actor. It appears to have been loaded with a mix of dummy rounds, there to give the appearance of a loaded weapon for a close-up shot, and the unfortunate live round. Baldwin may not have been expected to know how to tell the difference.

    OTOH, Ray Liotta, who has certainly been in a lot more movies involving firearms than Baldwin, says that it is standard practice in the film industry to inspect the firarm in front of both the actor, as well as anyone he may be pointing it at. Under those rules the gun should have been inspected in front of Baldwin, and probably Souza, Hutchins, and the cameraman. So perhaps as many as six people, including the decedent, failed to do their jobs properly.

    I'm sure that in both the civil and criminal trials a lot will turn on whether actor's inspections are considered suggestions or requirements by the Screen Actors' Guild.

    In Baldwin's capacity as a producer a lot is still in doubt. Hiring incompetent employees and allowing live rounds anywhere near a set is definitely a huge no-no.

    I’ve never consented to being called an “anglo”*, a “gentile”, or “White-with-a-capital-Wh”. Goy and gringo are acceptable because at least they’re honest.

    “White trash” is more… problematical. It’s something we might embrace, but it better fits the Newsoms, Pelosis, McAuliffes, and those creatures who vote for them.

    Cotton Ceiling
    A term used by some trans MtF people to present lesbians' lack of attraction to them as prejudice. Often, it is used to shame them into relationships, completely ignoring the fact that lesbians are same-sex attracted.

    This same concept, except involving transmen and gay men, is referred to as the boxer ceiling.
    A transgirl on a lesbian dating app blamed the cotton ceiling after my friend Leila decided not to go on a date with her. I don't think Leila is in the wrong because her same-sex attraction is valid, plus she is not obliged to date anyone.

    Apparently the armorer was on set, and showed the weapon to the AD before the AD handed it to Baldwin. But they appear to be trying to shift most of the blame onto the [white middle aged male] AD instead of the [semi-Hispanic female] armorer who had the primary job of ensuring the weapon’s safety.

    At this point Baldwin appears to probably be off the hook, at least in his capacity as an actor. It appears to have been loaded with a mix of dummy rounds, there to give the appearance of a loaded weapon for a close-up shot, and the unfortunate live round. Baldwin may not have been expected to know how to tell the difference.

    OTOH, Ray Liotta, who has certainly been in a lot more movies involving firearms than Baldwin, says that it is standard practice in the film industry to inspect the firarm in front of both the actor, as well as anyone he may be pointing it at. Under those rules the gun should have been inspected in front of Baldwin, and probably Souza, Hutchins, and the cameraman. So perhaps as many as six people, including the decedent, failed to do their jobs properly.

    I’m sure that in both the civil and criminal trials a lot will turn on whether actor’s inspections are considered suggestions or requirements by the Screen Actors’ Guild.

    In Baldwin’s capacity as a producer a lot is still in doubt. Hiring incompetent employees and allowing live rounds anywhere near a set is definitely a huge no-no.

    Of course, while the .45 Colt is a one-shot man stopper, the .22LR might stop a squirrel, on a good day*.

  47. The BBC oscillating wildly on the trans issue since the Nolan investigates show is something to behold.

    But the trans have a perfect point. If trans women are women then ‘Lesbian’ can’t mean a cis women who is only attracted to cis women. These Lesbians who aren’t into trans women are really people who are attracted to cis women and aren’t really Lesbians in current year anymore than one is allowed to suggest ‘British’ can’t include Idris Elba. So which is it? Are trans women really women or are they trans women, something objectively different, are they really male?

    The vast majority of people who have a type or who aren’t attracted to a type aren’t dogmatic about it, it isn’t like religious endogamy. It actually means that they find people who fit that type are so overwhelmingly unattractive to them that they may as well not. That this may be natural rather than a social proscription is why they’re so concerned and mentioned ‘writing off’ other races in the article. The implications are significant.

    Transmen, like little Elliott Page, lose the intrinsic power of womanhood and instead become dickless, sexless man-equins. Transwomen are either the aggro former Navy seal/CEO type Steve talks about or twee misfits like the singer from Against Me.

    In “Transgender Dysphoria Blues,” Laura Jane Grace (formerly Tom Gabel, born in Fort Benning and son of a US Army major) sings “You want them to see you / Like they see every other girl/ They just see a faggot / They'll hold their breath not to catch the sick.”

    The obsession with how "you want them to see you" is the fundamental issue with this mental disorder, as it is with many mental problems. They are tasked with convincing everyone else that not only are trannies not delusional, it is everyone else with the problem recognizing reality.

    Now that I think about it, it's even more inexplicable that the hammer on the pistol was cocked. As a single action weapon, pulling the trigger does NOT fire the gun unless you first manually cock the hammer. "Cold" or not, what reason was there to have the hammer cocked in a rehearsal?

    You'll note in the linked video, the narrator uses the traditional "cowboy load" - he leaves 1 chamber empty and LOWERS the hammer onto the empty chamber. This way you were much less likely to accidentally shoot yourself (or anyone else). When you were ready to fire the gun, you would cock the hammer with your thumb, which would rotate the cylinder to the next (live) chamber and then you could pull the trigger and shoot.

    Unless maybe Baldwin cocked the hammer and pulled the trigger as part of his practice pantomime?

    Replies: @Twinkie, @Paperback Writer

    the narrator uses the traditional “cowboy load” – he leaves 1 chamber empty and LOWERS the hammer onto the empty chamber. This way you were much less likely to accidentally shoot yourself (or anyone else).

    That was the normal practice before transfer bars were invented and used to block the hammer from striking the firing pin in revolvers.

    Older revolvers had nothing blocking the hammer from striking the firing pin, which meant that even an uncocked hammer could hit the firing pin hard enough to detonate a round if the revolver, esp. the back of the hammer, was struck by something else (or if the gun was dropped, etc.). Or the pin was on the hammer itself, with the same end result if the hammer was struck.

    Modern revolvers have a transfer bar. There is a piece of metal blocking the hammer from the separate firing pin, that will only drop below if the trigger is pulled. As the trigger is pulled, the metal block drops down, allowing the hammer to strike the firing pin, which in turn hits the rear of the cartridge. It’s a great safety system, but it does make the trigger a bit on the gritty side – not an issue on a self-defense gun, but a bit of a drag on a target or a hunting gun.

    Apparently the armorer was on set, and showed the weapon to the AD before the AD handed it to Baldwin. But they appear to be trying to shift most of the blame onto the [white middle aged male] AD instead of the [semi-Hispanic female] armorer who had the primary job of ensuring the weapon's safety.

    At this point Baldwin appears to probably be off the hook, at least in his capacity as an actor. It appears to have been loaded with a mix of dummy rounds, there to give the appearance of a loaded weapon for a close-up shot, and the unfortunate live round. Baldwin may not have been expected to know how to tell the difference.

    OTOH, Ray Liotta, who has certainly been in a lot more movies involving firearms than Baldwin, says that it is standard practice in the film industry to inspect the firarm in front of both the actor, as well as anyone he may be pointing it at. Under those rules the gun should have been inspected in front of Baldwin, and probably Souza, Hutchins, and the cameraman. So perhaps as many as six people, including the decedent, failed to do their jobs properly.

    I'm sure that in both the civil and criminal trials a lot will turn on whether actor's inspections are considered suggestions or requirements by the Screen Actors' Guild.

    In Baldwin's capacity as a producer a lot is still in doubt. Hiring incompetent employees and allowing live rounds anywhere near a set is definitely a huge no-no.

    The LBGBQTXYZ ad infinitum CuntMenOddities are an issue onto themselves. Confused, debauched, perpetually lashing out at Society and declaring there is no such thing as Normal, they are bound to turn on each other just like the degenerate, hodgepodge of vile excuses for Humanity that comprised the Chaz/Chop fiasco. Let alone, they disintegrate further into self centered and mutually exclusive micro-factions.

    Sexual Deviants are far more likely to die from suicide than homicide. In North Dallas, the Fags were getting beaten and robbed by Negroes regularly, but the media refused to report the race of the perpetrators, and, instead, asked for the public’s assistance by broadcasting either a very generic description of the suspect’s vehicle or no details at all. Near as I know, none of those who were apprehended turned out to be devout Christian missionaries. Just opportunistic Negroids looking for the Easy Money from Soft Targets.

    A solo entity, though I may currently be, I am certainly no stranger to the female anatomy. Not only that, but lithe and limber feminine forms with attractive visages. As I’ve grown older, my ability to date such ladies has been reduced, but I still manage to make friends and go out with the occasional pretty, young Vixen. I refuse to settle for a Woman that I don’t find physically alluring, and I am hesitant about females that I believe to be promiscuous or socially incompatible. Unlike the majority of Queers and Lesbians, I believe that Sex should be shared between two people who love each other, rather than just coupling like dogs in heat.

    Now that I think about it, it's even more inexplicable that the hammer on the pistol was cocked. As a single action weapon, pulling the trigger does NOT fire the gun unless you first manually cock the hammer. "Cold" or not, what reason was there to have the hammer cocked in a rehearsal?

    You'll note in the linked video, the narrator uses the traditional "cowboy load" - he leaves 1 chamber empty and LOWERS the hammer onto the empty chamber. This way you were much less likely to accidentally shoot yourself (or anyone else). When you were ready to fire the gun, you would cock the hammer with your thumb, which would rotate the cylinder to the next (live) chamber and then you could pull the trigger and shoot.

    Unless maybe Baldwin cocked the hammer and pulled the trigger as part of his practice pantomime?

    1. Thanks for that article

    2. Glad to see you’ve chosen to join Team Reality, although you go even further than I would. He should be booked for manslaughter.

    3. Baldwin had to perform two separate & discrete actions to get the gun to shoot, from your description. He pointed the gun at a person (well, a camera with two people in close proximity behind it, good enough); he performed these two separate and discrete actions, knowing that there was live ammo on the set… Why was there ammo? Any ammo?

    4. The article states that the gun had been locked up (putting paid to the nonsense about it being on a cart) but the ammo was on the cart….

    5. Article also states that the armorer should have been the person to hand the gun to the actor. AD should not have been involved. This is another interesting fact that was not covered in any of the previous articles I read. I don’t see how this is Covid-related. That makes zero sense to me.

    I think that Baldwin’s PR team is trying to hang this on Covid rules. They are stupid, but this is a flimsy ruse. There is zero reason why Covid rules dictated why the AD had to be a step between armorer and actor. The opposite, in fact. More people, more chances for virus to spread.

    This is a pack of lies.

    The armorer and others would have good reason to lie about this, so I'm not sure we should take it on faith that the affidavit is correct. I'm sure this is what the Detective has been told but whether it is true is a different question.

    If it IS true, it creates the question of when and how and why did the prop gun come to contain a live cartridge with a bullet? "Someone was out plinking with the gun at lunchtime" answers all of these questions but if that is not true then you are back at square one.

    Also, given that this was a rehearsal, why was there ANY ammunition on the cart? Even if only blanks are in use, there is supposed to be, at a minimum, a plexiglass shield between the gun and the camera.

    Here is a alternate scenario - the gun was supposed to be loaded (for some reason) with blanks or dummy cartridges and it appeared to be loaded with such, but Spider Girl either neglected to check or did not WANT to check because checking would require her to eject each cartridge and she was afraid to do this because she perceived this as unsafe (to her).

    A term used by some trans MtF people to present lesbians' lack of attraction to them as prejudice. Often, it is used to shame them into relationships, completely ignoring the fact that lesbians are same-sex attracted.

    This same concept, except involving transmen and gay men, is referred to as the boxer ceiling.
    A transgirl on a lesbian dating app blamed the cotton ceiling after my friend Leila decided not to go on a date with her. I don't think Leila is in the wrong because her same-sex attraction is valid, plus she is not obliged to date anyone.

It describes in graphic detail the absolute horrors perpetrated upon the Elderly Caucasian residents of the Polytechnic Heights section of Fort Worth by the Negroes that moved into the once, stable and inviting middle class neighborhood. To this day, it remains a place that most people either quickly drive through or around. (not me, mind you. I earned the title of "Crazy Ass White Boy," and I proudly retain it. Though, it may eventually be my undoing).

    Depreciation of property values paled in comparison to the horrendous rapes, beatings and murders that the Old White People endured in the homes that they had worked hard all of their lives for; where they had raised their families and hoped to enjoy their retirements in. Nobody cared then, and nobody cares today. I tried in vain to bring about a remembrance service for them at the local university during a clock tower dedication. I was told that I could stay for the celebration, but that I was prohibited from discussing the past atrocities that had occurred in the streets surrounding the school. I was told that it was neither the time or place. When I inquired as to when would be the proper time to address the issue, I was met with shrugs and silence.

    Right, let’s talk about issues of homicide and persecution. The BBC article and Steve’s post are specifically about Transgender women harassing inviting lesbians to have sex with them, so let’s ditch the LGBQ and stick with the T. Fair?

    Luckily, the esteemed and impartial Human Rights Campaign released “A National Epidemic: Fatal Anti-Transgender Violence in the United States in 2019” in November of that year, “honoring the at least 22 transgender people and gender non-conforming people killed in 2019 and detailing the contributing factors that lead to this tragic violence.” Rod Dreher read the report and googled each incident, I summarized that here.

    For the folks with marquee roles in the HRC report, living the Transgender dream meant having friends and acquaintances who were also in and around this lifestyle. Turns out that hanging out with users, pimps, johns, the violence-prone, and the mentally unstable isn’t a recipe for a long and fulfilling life.

    100% the latter.

    If it weren't for the fact that most lesbians are unattractive this would be an even bigger issue. But even so, trannies are essentially Nietzschean monsters who will impose their memetic fantasies on the rest of us whether we like it or not.

    There does seem to be a significant overlap with various personality disorders primarily if not exclusively associated with “high-functioning” autistic spectrum traits.
    Including the inability to “read” social signals, meltdown rages, extreme solipsism, obsessions, delusions about one’s body and so on (Charles “the Mad”, VI of France went one regal step further and was convinced he was made of glass, not merely a woman).

  79. “There’s a common argument that they try and use that goes ‘What if you met a woman in a bar and she’s really beautiful and you got on really well and you went home and you discovered that she has a penis? Would you just not be interested?’”

    If this ‘argument’ was directed towards a heterosexual man, the answer would always be, “Yes, I would not be interested.”

    Funny story:

    Forty years ago a friend was hitch hiking and got a ride from a woman who pulled over and got frisky, engaging him in oral sex. Before completion, she told him she was on her way to get a sex change operation to fully become a woman, her transformation at that point having only been chemical. My buddy said that ruined it for him and he was no longer able to continue. “Wish she hadn’t told me until after,” he said.

  80. The old male joke about being a lesbian trapped in a man’s body seems to have been brought to life by these ex-men ‘lesbians’, most of whom I think are still ‘carrying’, if not openly.

    At least the guys who cut off their tackle have some skin in the game, so to speak. A man who puts on a dress and immediately demands to bed lesbians is just trying to discover how many ridiculous things you can get a girl to believe by closing time.

    “Another lesbian woman, 26-year-old Chloe*, said she felt so pressured she ended up having penetrative sex with a trans woman at university after repeatedly explaining she was not interested.

    They lived near each other in halls of residence. Chloe had been drinking alcohol and does not think she could have given proper consent.”

    That was the normal practice before transfer bars were invented and used to block the hammer from striking the firing pin in revolvers.

    Older revolvers had nothing blocking the hammer from striking the firing pin, which meant that even an uncocked hammer could hit the firing pin hard enough to detonate a round if the revolver, esp. the back of the hammer, was struck by something else (or if the gun was dropped, etc.). Or the pin was on the hammer itself, with the same end result if the hammer was struck.

    Modern revolvers have a transfer bar. There is a piece of metal blocking the hammer from the separate firing pin, that will only drop below if the trigger is pulled. As the trigger is pulled, the metal block drops down, allowing the hammer to strike the firing pin, which in turn hits the rear of the cartridge. It’s a great safety system, but it does make the trigger a bit on the gritty side - not an issue on a self-defense gun, but a bit of a drag on a target or a hunting gun.

    This is not a cap and ball gun, it is not a Dragoon ( from the year 1848). It take .45 cal. “Long Colt” cartridges, which was the current technology by 1873.
     
    As pointed out earlier, someone looking to get, on the cheap, a replica of the Peacemaker (a facsimile of which was fired by Baldwin), should consider taking a look at the Heritage Rough Rider, which fires a .22LR, but costs 1/10 of the Italian replica:



    Of course, while the .45 Colt is a one-shot man stopper, the .22LR might stop a squirrel, on a good day*.

    * For John Hinckley, it's debatable whether his success in putting someone in the emergency room was a good day for him. However, it's clear that the .22LR isn't just an oversized BB pellet.

    Thanks.

    I spent a few minutes of my life that I'll want back on my deathbed researching whether there's a tampon connection, and found this. It's a veritable stew of the current crazy, but with an interesting nugget buried in the middle:


    My best friend once told me that his parents, in 1970s Brooklyn, were dismayed that black folks were moving in. Not because they believed Black people were bad, but because it was driving depreciation of real estate on their street. Racism? Or simply a legit concern about savings? Or both?

    There are a lot of nuances to such issues. And just to be very, very clear to anyone who might accuse me of promoting rape culture:

    I strongly suggest that you read “Left Behind In Rosedale: Race Relations and The Collapse of Community Institutions” by Scott Cummings. It describes in graphic detail the absolute horrors perpetrated upon the Elderly Caucasian residents of the Polytechnic Heights section of Fort Worth by the Negroes that moved into the once, stable and inviting middle class neighborhood. To this day, it remains a place that most people either quickly drive through or around. (not me, mind you. I earned the title of “Crazy Ass White Boy,” and I proudly retain it. Though, it may eventually be my undoing).

    Depreciation of property values paled in comparison to the horrendous rapes, beatings and murders that the Old White People endured in the homes that they had worked hard all of their lives for; where they had raised their families and hoped to enjoy their retirements in. Nobody cared then, and nobody cares today. I tried in vain to bring about a remembrance service for them at the local university during a clock tower dedication. I was told that I could stay for the celebration, but that I was prohibited from discussing the past atrocities that had occurred in the streets surrounding the school. I was told that it was neither the time or place. When I inquired as to when would be the proper time to address the issue, I was met with shrugs and silence.

    Check Urban Dictionary.


    Cotton Ceiling
    A term used by some trans MtF people to present lesbians' lack of attraction to them as prejudice. Often, it is used to shame them into relationships, completely ignoring the fact that lesbians are same-sex attracted.

    This same concept, except involving transmen and gay men, is referred to as the boxer ceiling.
    A transgirl on a lesbian dating app blamed the cotton ceiling after my friend Leila decided not to go on a date with her. I don't think Leila is in the wrong because her same-sex attraction is valid, plus she is not obliged to date anyone.

    What do you call a woman who pretends to be a man?

    Replies: @Reg Cæsar, @Boomthorkell, @Captain Tripps

    An actor? (I’d say actress, but I believe the prevailing cultural zeitgeist insists that both men and women stage/screen performers be called “actors”)

    Or, confused?

  91. There have been a number of small changes to the lexicon that have gone almost unnoticed, but which change the frame of the discussion.

    40 years ago, a few people were “transsexual”. Such people would undergo a “sex change operation”, after first living in their new gender role for a year to test that they would be comfortable with the change. During that year, they would be termed “pre-op transsexuals”; afterwards, “post-op transsexuals”.

    The first change is that we no longer have “transsexuals”, instead we have “transgender”; and sociologists insist that sex and gender are different things, the latter being defined to be whatever the sociologists want.

    Second, trans of course means “across”, implying a change from one state to another. Most of the problems like the ones in the BBC article would not exist if transgender people actually had the sex-change operation. Instead, we have a lot of “no-op” transsexuals, and also ones who have had the “top half” done but not the “bottom half”. Sorry guys, trans means trans. If a M2F transsexual’s bottom half is still cis, he will not get any action with either lesbians or straight men – and his sense of entitlement, and his rage at rejection, are characteristically male.

    Another change is the renaming of “sex-change operation”, first to “gender reassignment surgery” and then to “gender confirmation surgery”. Also, “transvestites” and “female impersonators” have ceased to exist – we are now expected to believe that these individuals are literally women.

    Terms like “men who menstruate”, or “women with penises” are pure cant: these are people who have chosen to stop halfway in their transition, or to change their legal documents without transitioning at all.

    This is not a cap and ball gun, it is not a Dragoon ( from the year 1848). It take .45 cal. "Long Colt" cartridges, which was the current technology by 1873.

    Replies: @Jack D, @Almost Missouri, @AnotherDad, @Johann Ricke, @Johann Ricke, @NickG

    I strongly suspected it would be a revolver with a non top break, non swing out cylinder. Typical of those from the bulk of the 19th century.

    You have to load them one at a time and unload them one chamber at a time with the push rod under the barrel. I suspect the crew who were apparently plinking with it earlier in the day left a cartridge in one of the 6 chambers and it was just never checked.

    Additionally, I’m pretty sure this is a single action revolver and the hammer would have had to be pulled back to cock it, rotating the cylinder as it’s cocked. Anyone in front of the revolver would be able to see the .45 bullet sitting there through the open front of the cylinder, in the cylinder before the barrel quite easily waiting to rotate into line with the barrel as the hammer was pulled back.

    These accidents, a bit like most aviation accidents, are as Swiss cheese where all the holes in a block line up.

    There’s definitely a big payout coming up.

    I think MTF and FTM is probably the clearest way to classify them. I think you should also use AGP for the MTFs who want sex from lesbians.

AGPs are the most powerful and toxic element in the trans movement and more people need to hear about them to understand the trans movement and it's agenda.

    2. Glad to see you've chosen to join Team Reality, although you go even further than I would. He should be booked for manslaughter.

    3. Baldwin had to perform two separate & discrete actions to get the gun to shoot, from your description. He pointed the gun at a person (well, a camera with two people in close proximity behind it, good enough); he performed these two separate and discrete actions, knowing that there was live ammo on the set... Why was there ammo? Any ammo?

    4. The article states that the gun had been locked up (putting paid to the nonsense about it being on a cart) but the ammo was on the cart....

    5. Article also states that the armorer should have been the person to hand the gun to the actor. AD should not have been involved. This is another interesting fact that was not covered in any of the previous articles I read. I don't see how this is Covid-related. That makes zero sense to me.

    I think that Baldwin's PR team is trying to hang this on Covid rules. They are stupid, but this is a flimsy ruse. There is zero reason why Covid rules dictated why the AD had to be a step between armorer and actor. The opposite, in fact. More people, more chances for virus to spread.

    The armorer and others would have good reason to lie about this, so I’m not sure we should take it on faith that the affidavit is correct. I’m sure this is what the Detective has been told but whether it is true is a different question.

    If it IS true, it creates the question of when and how and why did the prop gun come to contain a live cartridge with a bullet? “Someone was out plinking with the gun at lunchtime” answers all of these questions but if that is not true then you are back at square one.

    Also, given that this was a rehearsal, why was there ANY ammunition on the cart? Even if only blanks are in use, there is supposed to be, at a minimum, a plexiglass shield between the gun and the camera.

    Here is a alternate scenario – the gun was supposed to be loaded (for some reason) with blanks or dummy cartridges and it appeared to be loaded with such, but Spider Girl either neglected to check or did not WANT to check because checking would require her to eject each cartridge and she was afraid to do this because she perceived this as unsafe (to her).

  104. Personally, I can never remember what terms like “trans women” and “trans men” mean since they could equally likely have opposite meanings.

    I always remember this just by knowing they’re making up whatever they’re saying – so if I read “trans men”, I just mentally cross out “trans” and replace it with “not”. So it becomes “not men”, meaning trans men are actually women. And “trans” women are “not” women. “Trans” can just be read as a shortcut for “in reality the opposite”.

  105. Part of the problem seems to be the (intentional) ambiguity and/or misuse of the language by these bogus ‘trans-women’ …

    As with this whole T-bone(less) crowd, merely thinking of or wanting to be the opposite of one’s chromosomal gender seems to get the appellation of that desired gender.

    In the absence of (a) full-on hormonal changes and (b) full-on physiological re-memberment — the person should still be required to identify according to their chromosomal gender … none of this wanna-be nonsense.

    Especially when men want to be admitted to women’s prisons, maybe it’s time the women took matters into their own hands and tattooed these men as such … right on their foreheads … and that’s just for propositioning the women. If one of them sexually abuses a woman — well, then, all bets just might be off – maybe Lorena Bobbitt can make a guest appearance at the women’s prison and teach a class in surgical procedures or some such thing.

    In the end, though — as always — it’s almost fun to watch these folks eat their own kind …

    Replies: @Cato, @Paperback Writer, @Stan d Mute, @Lisboa anon, @Truth, @Juvenalis

    “Transvestite” has a clinical definition, viz. heterosexual men with a paraphilic fetish for compulsive cross-dressing, from which they derive sexual excitement. Dressing in womens’ clothing causes sexual arousal in the transvestite—a fetish, not an identity issue. (Nor to be confused with “drag queens”, who dress up for entertainment purposes.)
    In DSM-III, the disorder is called Transvestism. In DSM-III-R, DSM-IV, DSM-IV-TR, it’s called Transvestic Fetishism. DSM-5 re-names it Transvestic Disorder; adds specifier with Autogynephilia—a transvestite is an autogynephile who doesn’t seek to live as a woman full-time. “Transvestite” does not mean those with persistent identity issues who desire to live as the opposite sex (Transsexualism/Gender Identity Disorder/Gender Dysphoria), although it may progress to that. From Psychosexual Disorders/Paraphilias in DSM-III:

    302.30 Transvestism
    The essential feature is recurrent and persistent cross-dressing by a heterosexual male that during at least the initial phase of the illness is for the purpose of sexual excitement. Interference with the cross-dressing results in intense frustration. This diagnosis is not made in those rare instances in which the disturbance has evolved into Transsexualism.
    Differential diagnosis. In Transsexualism there is a persistent wish to be rid of one’s own genitals and to live as a member of the other sex…when Transvestism evolves into Transsexualism, the diagnosis of Transvestism is changed to Transsexualism.
    Diagnostic criteria for Transvestism:
    A. Recurrent and persistent cross-dressing by a heterosexual male.
    B. Use of cross-dressing for the purpose of sexual excitement, at least initially in the course of the disorder.
    C. Intense frustration when the cross-dressing is interfered with.
    D. Does not meet the criteria for Transsexualism.

    Further clinical description of a transvestite:

    The average compulsive transvestite, to all appearances, is leading a normal life. Often he is married, has children, and is a good family man and provider. He may seem moody, and in some cases he drinks too much. His vita sexualis is adequate, but his libidinal interest is lukewarm.
    Occasionally—perhaps once a week, perhaps only a few times a year—his inner tension mounts until it seems to be no longer bearable. If he cannot relieve it by drinking himself into a stupor—milder degrees of intoxication may only increase his urge or make him incautious—he may contrive to send his family away for an evening or a Sunday. He then dresses in his wife’s clothes, either a few specific articles—panties, bra, hose or/and shoes…Often he adds heavy makeup. He may sit quietly enjoying the feeling of exhilaration, or he stands or parades before a mirror, sometimes for hours. His sexual excitement leads him to masturbate, occasionally more than once. Some men afflicted with transvestism have used their offices after hours, dressing up in clothes they kept locked away…the compulsive transvestite remains a male, derives sexual gratification through use of his penis, and wishes to remain a male.

    Some butch lesbians would look good enough if they dressed up and put on some makeup. Some femmes are pretty dumpy. The thing is that they don't put much effort into looking good for men.

    I've worked with quite a few butch lesbians in blue collar jobs. They're not bad at work. They don't take advantage of their femininity as much as other women, e.g. they don't call in sick as much and they don't always ask men to do their job for them. But they still do abuse it somewhat, just less.

    My beef with lesbians is their involvement with family law, i.e. straight people's business. They should GTFO, but they can't resist the vulnerable easy pickings that young single moms are. In the 80s/90s they were all over that, and it has had disastrous consequences.

    They also have no business teaching young men, and should be purged from universities when they seize control of them. They migrate to places that provide sexual opportunities and can fly under the radar because they are female.

    I'm ambivalent about the tranny attack on lesbians, but ultimately the trannies are the bigger threat because of their fanaticism and hatred of truth. Institutional lesbians are just kind of seedy opportunists who are content with having some status in the preexisting system. Trannies are never going to be satisfied until the world literally trembles in their presence.

    I can understand why you might not want to rekindle unpleasant memories. The book, hitting so close to home, and reminding me of my own experiences, really affected me. I spent a considerable amount of time in the library researching the news items that were featured in the book, and driving around the neighborhood; stopping in front of some of the places where the murders occurred.

    The real sob-story surrounding Reconstruction has to do with the disenfranchisement and dispossession of so many of the Southern people. That, coupled with insolent Negroes permitted to run amok and placed into positions of authority to punish and humiliate the South for merely following through on the threats to secede that the North had repeatedly made, but could never bring themselves to do. The economic dependence that the Federal Government and Northern Industry had on tariffs derived from the South was what prevented them from taking the initiative, and why they could not permit the South to leave of its own accord. It's complicated, and obviously, not everyone agrees about the causes of the War, but for the better part of the 20th Century, the North's heavy handed treatment of the South postbellum was considered a National disgrace.

    This was the original, and once nearly universally acknowledged, stance on Reconstruction, before the grievance industry began to make it all about po' Niggaz being strung up by the Klan.

    What the parties told to the affiant may well untrue, but the affidavit itself stands as a legal document.

    In court a prosecuting attorney can compare their sworn statements to what really happened. These affidavits are just the very beginning of a long process and when the truth comes out, if they lied, it won't look good in court.

    The armorer is probably lying.

    But then, they all are.

There are many ways to point a "gun" at someone and still not kill them.

    To start with, by not using real guns. There are a million Colt 1873 replicas out there that are non-firing or fire only blanks, so why did they need a working weapon in a rehearsal?

    2nd, if for some reason you need a real gun and need to point it at someone (or at the camera(man)) for purposes of the movie, there are well established protocols for verifying that a gun is not loaded - these vary according to the design of the weapon. That is why the armorer is supposed to be a person who is familiar with guns. If you've checked the gun and double checked it and you know for sure that the gun is empty or has only dummy rounds in it, you can point it all day with perfect safety.

    I strongly suspected it would be a revolver with a non top break, non swing out cylinder. Typical of those from the bulk of the 19th century.

    You have to load them one at a time and unload them one chamber at a time with the push rod under the barrel. I suspect the crew who were apparently plinking with it earlier in the day left a cartridge in one of the 6 chambers and it was just never checked.

    Additionally, I'm pretty sure this is a single action revolver and the hammer would have had to be pulled back to cock it, rotating the cylinder as it's cocked. Anyone in front of the revolver would be able to see the .45 bullet sitting there through the open front of the cylinder, in the cylinder before the barrel quite easily waiting to rotate into line with the barrel as the hammer was pulled back.

    These accidents, a bit like most aviation accidents, are as Swiss cheese where all the holes in a block line up.

    Well, Mr. Paperback Reader, maybe if you read a little more about Men like Jefferson Davis, instead of Dime Store Novels, then you might have a far different estimation of him and the South.

    Slavery? There again, if you read a little more about the subject, you might find that the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade originated in the North and continued to operate for 23 years after The War to Prevent Southern Independence had ended. The last two regions in the New World to outlaw Slavery were Brazil and Cuba, which ceased the practice in 1888. Until then, ships sailing out of Northern ports continued to supply their labor needs. In fact, the South was a backwater for the trade. Only 6% of the Africans transported to the New World were unloaded in the English Colonies or the United States, the vast majority, 94%, were brought to South America and the Caribbean.

    As far as "an argument for another day" is concerned, this post deviated from the subject of Lesbians and Transvestites long ago, with many posts being about Alec Baldwin and the "Rusty" blunderbuss.

    The thing is, I don't really care if you like me, my ancestors, the South, or the Confederacy. Mutual animosity or indifference, whatever, if you are up North and you like it there, then fine. All the South ever wanted was to be left alone. Yankee Zealots are still Hell Bent on demeaning us and destroying every last remnant of our past. As Charles Dickens so accurately observed, "The Northern onslaught on Slavery was no more than a piece of species humbug designed to conceal its desire for economic control of the Southern States." Or, as William Howard Russell wrote in the London Times, "The New Englander must have something to persecute, and as he has hunted down all his Indians, burnt all his witches, and persecuted all his opponents to death, he invented Abolitionism as the sole resource left to him for the gratification of his favoured passion. Next to this motive principle is his desire to make money dishonestly, trickily, meanly and shabbily. He has acted on it in all his relations with the South, and has cheated and plundered her in all his dealings by villainous tariffs."

    Someone once said, "If you are Magnanimous toward Women and Minorities, you will be Rewarded with Insolence." I have been unable to relocate the source of that wise quote, but it certainly rings true.

    Walking on eggshells is what has caused White Men to lose ground, not speaking directly and succinctly. I have no desire, and I have no need, to soften my approach. Gangsta Rappers are "respected" because of their militancy, not because they exercise their decorum and mind their manners. Have you seen the huge numbers of people, White, Black, Brown, Red, Yellow, that want to be associated with them? People of all races dress, talk and act like them because they exude strength and they have uncompromising attitudes.

    People like you don't want to be associated with people like me because they are afraid... afraid someone will call them a racist... afraid they will lose their jobs... afraid someone will beat them up... etc... Fear is what keeps them in their place and fear is what ensures that they don't stand up for themselves. Growing up with threats being leveled at me on a daily basis, I became all but immune to intimidation. Saying no one wants to be associated with people like me is painting with a very broad brush, and is basically implying that I don't have any friends. You might be surprised at who I am friends with. As you, yourself, stated, the opposition is full of guys like me.

    I'm no loser. I'm playing to win and winning takes effort, winning requires determination, and winning doesn't need an apology. That's how we got into this spot to begin with, the White Man began to express remorse for winning the West, and everyone else, Mexicans, Asians, Indians, etc... who failed in their attempts to conquer the land, were quite eager and happy to take more than full advantage of our desire to make amends.

    Why is any effective opposition to neoliberalism so ineffective? Because it's made up of losers who want to lose.

    Someone once said, “If you are Magnanimous toward Women and Minorities, you will be Rewarded with Insolence.” I have been unable to relocate the source of that wise quote, but it certainly rings true.

    Walking on eggshells is what has caused White Men to lose ground, not speaking directly and succinctly. I have no desire, and I have no need, to soften my approach. Gangsta Rappers are “respected” because of their militancy, not because they exercise their decorum and mind their manners. Have you seen the huge numbers of people, White, Black, Brown, Red, Yellow, that want to be associated with them? People of all races dress, talk and act like them because they exude strength and they have uncompromising attitudes.

    People like you don’t want to be associated with people like me because they are afraid… afraid someone will call them a racist… afraid they will lose their jobs… afraid someone will beat them up… etc… Fear is what keeps them in their place and fear is what ensures that they don’t stand up for themselves. Growing up with threats being leveled at me on a daily basis, I became all but immune to intimidation. Saying no one wants to be associated with people like me is painting with a very broad brush, and is basically implying that I don’t have any friends. You might be surprised at who I am friends with. As you, yourself, stated, the opposition is full of guys like me.

    I’m no loser. I’m playing to win and winning takes effort, winning requires determination, and winning doesn’t need an apology. That’s how we got into this spot to begin with, the White Man began to express remorse for winning the West, and everyone else, Mexicans, Asians, Indians, etc… who failed in their attempts to conquer the land, were quite eager and happy to take more than full advantage of our desire to make amends. In other words, “Nice Guys Finish Last.”

    Agree. But you don't have to walk on eggshells. I advise using blunt, honest speech. That doesn't mean using charged language such as "insolent Negroes." Saying that "blacks" or "freedmen" ran wild after the CW isn't walking on eggshells.

    Yeah, I see all the winning. /sarcasm/

    I hear a lot of whining on the right: "Conservatives have conserved nothing." There's more than a grain of truth to that. But maybe the same people can look at the mote in their own eye and clean up their own act.

    "Insolent Negroes" is guaranteed to get every normie to run to the door & slam it shut. You're welcome to your padded cell.

    following through on the threats to secede that the North had repeatedly made,

     

    Another part of the past that's been memory-holed.

    I'm not a huge fan of the Confederacy. I don't see them as the innocent victims of Northern aggression. The Cotton Kings were also "insolent" and power mad.

    But that's an argument for another day. Not going into that here.

    But the fact is, aging, poor white people paid for the establishment of slavery in the US, and we are all paying for it, every day.

    It'll never end. Even when the Empire falls, we'll be paying.

    Well, Mr. Paperback Reader, maybe if you read a little more about Men like Jefferson Davis, instead of Dime Store Novels, then you might have a far different estimation of him and the South.

    Slavery? There again, if you read a little more about the subject, you might find that the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade originated in the North and continued to operate for 23 years after The War to Prevent Southern Independence had ended. The last two regions in the New World to outlaw Slavery were Brazil and Cuba, which ceased the practice in 1888. Until then, ships sailing out of Northern ports continued to supply their labor needs. In fact, the South was a backwater for the trade. Only 6% of the Africans transported to the New World were unloaded in the English Colonies or the United States, the vast majority, 94%, were brought to South America and the Caribbean.

    As far as “an argument for another day” is concerned, this post deviated from the subject of Lesbians and Transvestites long ago, with many posts being about Alec Baldwin and the “Rusty” blunderbuss.

    The thing is, I don’t really care if you like me, my ancestors, the South, or the Confederacy. Mutual animosity or indifference, whatever, if you are up North and you like it there, then fine. All the South ever wanted was to be left alone. Yankee Zealots are still Hell Bent on demeaning us and destroying every last remnant of our past. As Charles Dickens so accurately observed, “The Northern onslaught on Slavery was no more than a piece of species humbug designed to conceal its desire for economic control of the Southern States.” Or, as William Howard Russell wrote in the London Times, “The New Englander must have something to persecute, and as he has hunted down all his Indians, burnt all his witches, and persecuted all his opponents to death, he invented Abolitionism as the sole resource left to him for the gratification of his favoured passion. Next to this motive principle is his desire to make money dishonestly, trickily, meanly and shabbily. He has acted on it in all his relations with the South, and has cheated and plundered her in all his dealings by villainous tariffs.”

    Any criticism of blacks as a group will send the normies running for the door. (You may get away with criticizing "criminals, some of whom are black" but even that's pushing it)

    And of course nowadays saying "the blacks" is barely less offensive than saying "the negroes". (I remember Justice Scalia getting in trouble for using the phrase.)

    This is what happens when you allow the left to define the boundaries of acceptable speech.

    Well, if I'm the only Paleface playing Hardball, then, Yeah, our team is going to lose when all of the other members insist on Nerf ball. As an individual, I win, because I am not cowed into watching my words, while Sambo is applying every vile appellation, that comes to his simian mind, to me.

    Normies run, because that's what Normies do. That's what they've been doing for decades, Running. Fleeing to the suburbs, to the "safe neighborhoods" and "good schools," slamming their doors and locking them tight, investing in security alarms and surveillance systems. Paying to install monitors throughout their homes and having a 24 hour vigil conducted by strangers peering into their bedrooms. Yet, they still aren't safe and they are quickly "running" out of places to hide. I recently saw a news report where hackers had accessed a home security system and were taunting and frightening a little girl in her own room.

    If anyone is locked in padded cells, it is the perpetually timid, and paralyzed by fear, Normies. They are "safely" secluded within their own little cocoons, praying that the big, bad, Black Boogeyman doesn't come for them. Though, they will never admit it, even to themselves. That's insanity.
