RE: No Country for Old Men...
I see no reason to celebrate mysogyny, racism, bigotry, etc. Ideas? yes. Worth celebrating? no.

Celebrate the cornucopia of thought and ideas, absolutely ... whether contentious or not. Free speech only allows us to express them. Does Freedom contribute to the rise of good thought and ideas? maybe

Not folks in the "trans community"

But rather the self-appointed guardians of acceptable thought and speech.

Ohhhhhhhh, so you were just sharing a trans-phobic article to own the libs, and then you were pumped when someone replied and said that the article was trans-phobic and the ideas it propagated hurt people because it meant you'd hit your mark. Now I get it. Good one!

Not quite.

As explained previously

The original post was (only) about my amusement when thinking about how the older generation must view some of today's news.

There was no intent to make any statement about trans folks

I didn't read the article close enough to pay attention to the author's views on trans people. And I didn't care

My summary was:

"Woman" didn't get her peni$ waxed by an ethnic "biologic women".
Felt her human rights were violated.
Went to the government.
Low income asian women punished/lost her business for her decision.

But

I should have known better.

You came running

So

My subsequent posts were directed at the self-appointed arbiters who take it upon themselves tell us (all) which speech and thoughts are acceptable.

Whose actions are Jerry Falwell - esque.

The "moral" majority.

Y'all ever considered using persuasion as a tactic?

IMHO....what you're doing now, and people like you have done for the last decade strongly contributed to Donald Trump getting elected.

Assinine perspective. Persuasion seldom works even with reasonable people much less people married to an ideology. Realistically people seldom give up long held beliefs no matter the evidence. If a face can be put to it close to home then there is chance for change.

This it true, and a good point.

But persuasion and this strategy aren't mutually exclusive.

BTW

How exactly are your insults, name calling, labeling, and (self) righteous indignation promoting this strategy?

I can ask the same. I've learned that others generally don't care to be treated the way they treat others.

Here is a Democrat who gets it:

Not gonna beat Trump with Socialist, alt-left, positions, regardless of merits or lack-there-of.

Get back to the bread-n-butter!

I agree that in order for the Dems to win they need a moderate not named HRH. They also need a message other than never tRump.

However seeing the local success of some of the far left candidates one wonders who would pull the independent and moderate vote ... tRump or a lefty?

Mr. Whinny, having now reached the age of four score, would like some reassurance that this is still the country for old women. What do you say, ess?
