Bruce wants you to remember, Donald J Trump is the first American President to have been pro-gay marriage right from the start.
An Argentinian judge found … among the penumbras and emanations of the Argentine Constitution… a “right to happiness.” (Much like Anthony Kennedy found a “Right to Dignity” in the Constitution of the United States.) And therefore is allowing a woman to marry her own stepdaughter.
After her husband’s death in 2010, just four months after their wedding, the stepmom got closer with the daughter, and the two eventually started a romantic relationship, El Pais newspaper reported. However, when last month the couple decided to formalize their relationship, they were denied a marriage license based on portion of the Civil Code, which has allowed same-sex marriage since 2010 but prohibits any kind of parent-child unions, even if the couple isn’t related by blood. Both women are now in their early 30s, and they sued claiming that the rule violated their constitutional rights. And family judge Ricardo Dutto agreed, declaring the article unconstitutional and ruling that the constitution guarantees every citizen “the right to be happy.”
The Social Left used to make fun of inbreeding; but now that Teh Gheys do it, it’s almost as trendy as transgenderism.
According to The Hill, Suicide hotlines receive record number of calls after Trump win.
Phones have been ringing off the hook at suicide hotlines since Donald Trump was named president-elect Tuesday.
According to multiple reports, many of those calling or texting into hotlines are members of the LGBTQ community, minorities and victims of sexual assault who are worried about Trump’s victory…
The article, to its credit, at least attempts to mention real-world facts that could be relevant:
On the campaign trail, Trump told Fox News that he hoped to put Supreme Court judges on the bench who could “change things” in regards to current rulings on same-sex marriage, adding that he wished the ruling “was done by state.”
Trump’s multiple accusations of sexual assault have also been triggers for women, as well as the lewd 2005 tape recording of Trump in which he makes light of sexual assault saying, “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
But notice the bad job it does: the hysterical framing. For example, the repeated and vague use of the term “sexual assault” to imply great danger to women.
Fact: Trump does not condone rape and, unlike Bill Clinton, Trump has never been credibly accused of rape. From what I remember of Trump’s comments, at worst, he condoned locker-room talk and leaning in for a kiss or proposition after the other party had signaled her interest. And yes, that could be bad – because mistakes could be made; advances could be unwanted; cheating or diseases or painful regrets could happen if things did consensually go farther. Even so, sane people must admit that Trump does not rise to the level of “Bill Clinton bad”.
So, why this hysteria of feeling unsafe or “triggered” with Trump elected and not, say, with Bill Clinton around? Or with a prospect of Hillary Clinton being elected – given that she allegedly devastated the lives of women in helping to cover up her husband’s alleged raping? By any objective standard, the Clintons endanger women more than Trump does.
As to the gay-marriage aspect: The Supreme Court decision to make it nationwide was only last year. For thousands of years, gay men, women and teenagers have survived without that particular U.S. court decision. Believing that gay marriage should be decided by the States is hardly a dangerous position. Again, why the hysteria – among some people?
I believe the answer is this. Leftism harms you. As a philosophy, leftism discourages personal responsibility – and is objectively unrealistic. Therefore, it makes you less able to think clearly about your life; more mentally and emotionally vulnerable. Plus, in the specific case of 2016 and the Hillary Clinton campaign, leftism exposes you to manipulation via many untruths and exaggerations.
To anyone who may be genuinely suicidal over Trump’s election victory: You have my pity. Yes, that’s the correct word.
1. the feeling of sorrow and compassion caused by the suffering and misfortunes of others.
Because your suffering, at least in regard to Trump, is unnecessary.
To be clear: I did not support Trump for President. And I have my doubts about what will happen now, with him. But I’m not suicidal about him. Neither was I suicidal about Obama. Why not? Because, at a fairly young age, I made a conscious choice to value my own life, to make it better no matter what, and to develop common sense and my ability to think about reality clearly.
To all sufferers of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome): There is still time for you to make good choices to improve your mental health and your life. I hope and pray that you will.
A mother and son whose forbidden love affair could land them each a lengthy jail sentence have declared they are ‘madly in love’ and nothing will tear them apart.
Monica Mares, 36, and her son Caleb Peterson, 19, face up to 18 months in prison if found guilty of incest at a trial later this year in New Mexico.
But the mother and son couple have vowed to fight for their right to have a sexual relationship and are appealing to the public to donate to their legal fund.
Can you believe that The Patriarchy actually wants to put them in jail for being in love? Probably because of Thoecracy and stuff. “Government everywhere but in our bedrooms, yo!”
By the way, First cousin marriage is common and encouraged in Islam (which explains a lot about the Middle East), and since Mohammedans are the Democrats new favorite demo, it’s just a matter of time before all of those silly laws against incest will have to be struck down anyway.
Joe Biden officiated at a gay wedding. Seems appropriate, left-wing gays worship The State, and so that would sort of make Biden like the Vice Pope or something.
As for the real Pope, he says Capitalism causes terrorism.
“Terrorism grows when there is no other option, and to the extent the world economy has at its center the god of money and not the person.”
“This,” the Pope stressed, “is fundamental terrorism, it is against all humanity.”
So, the left should be like super-happy about that, but OTOH, he also says that brainwashing children into Androgyny because it’s trendy right now is wrong. So, the Pope’s kind of a mixed bag for the left right now.
So, capitalism is the root of terrorism and not Crazy Radical Muslims Trying to Provoke Israeli Soldiers into Killing Their Children so they can get a propaganda video. (And, BTW, failing).
Sometimes, I feel like all I do is chronicle the insanity of a dying world.
“He’s taking in kind of kid media. And he has this great book that’s like, just pictures and words. But when you open it up, it’s like, a picture of a girl and a picture of a boy, and it’s like, ‘Girl,’ ‘Boy,’ and I’m just like, ‘Child,’ ‘Child.’”
“This is where he starts learning what things are. And so I hate the idea that he’s getting it imprinted on him that people who look like this are boys, and people who look like that are girls.”
They are also teaching him to hate ‘Sesame Street’ because it reinforces traditional gender roles.
From the Telegraph.
A heterosexual couple who want to enter into a civil partnership rather than marry have urged a judge to rule that they are being discriminated against.
Rebecca Steinfeld and Charles Keidan, who are both academics and live in Hammersmith, west London, argue that the Government’s position on civil partnerships is “incompatible with equality law”.
Dr Steinfeld, 34, and Mr Keidan, 39, who have been in a committed relationship since November 2010 and have an eight-month-old baby, want to secure legal recognition of that relationship through a civil partnership.
Some of us think that a Civil Partnership should be the only thing The State acknowledges.
Do I think they have a point? Yes.
Do I think they are mostly doing this to get attention and media? Also, yes.
Speaking of marriage, Pakistan recently tried to make it illegal for creepy old guys to marry pre-pubescent girls. It was blocked by Islamic clerics who said the law would be an affront to Islam.
Remember how Justice Anthony Kennedy decided to impose gay marriage nationally because gay couples had a right to “dignity?”
If Reddit user mopeia is to be believed, he is a 24-year-old straight male who is currently engaged to a wealthy 51-year-old man purely for the money, and his husband to be knows it. I couldn’t tell you how the old guy feels about their “relationship” outside of the fact that he knows its a complete sham and doesn’t care.
Sure, it’s no different than a bimbo with fake t-ts marrying an older guy for his money, but it does sort of give lie to this false aura of nobility the gay left has wrapped around gay marriage.
Q: Do you have sex with each other?
Do you engage in one night stands with women?
What’s the point of getting married without a romantic connection?
A: Yes, we have sex.
Yeah, I can still hook up with women just so long as I don’t bring any home with me. So either at their place or a hotel or something.
You’d have to ask him I guess, since I’d ask what’s the point of a romantic connection in the first place. FWIW I kind of fake one for him, although he knows I’m faking.
As far as the left is concerned, this “marriage” is exactly equal to everybody else’s.
This is the gay left’s idea of outreach: A snotty, insulting, and condescending billboard. (Warning — obnoxious autoplay at link that never ever stops This is the billboard).
It took a comment by Craig Smith to remind me, there really is a Win-Win solution to the culture war.
Yet another good reason for government to get OUT of the marriage license business.
Exactly so. There is no need for the Government to be in the marriage business in the first place. Getting them out means there is no discrimination against Teh Gheys or Christians.
Unfortunately, the Social Left is getting far too much gratification from using Government to force their social views on society to give up this power willingly.
