World of Transwarcraft

I find the Sisterhood of Transsexual Purity every single bit as messed up as I find the Transgender Borg.

Obsessive Trolls in want of lives.  They seem to have nothing better to do than crawl endlessly through everything from the Usenet to mailing list and now through blogs looking for nits to pick.  They are like zombies looking for brains to eat and people to draw into their troll world where the endless game of Transwarcraft gives meaning to their pointless and empty existence.

Perish the though that the coiners of WBT might not share their obsessions nor their politics.

We might think that Christan Williams, Autumn Sandeen, Dyssonance and Monica Roberts are too crazy to take seriously, but are they  any more fucked up than the trolls of HBS/Classic transsexualdom?

The World of Transwarcraft is kind like George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones books, only without the occasional sexual titillation.

Endless fucking war over the meaning of words that no one really gives a damn about.

I stuck my head up, looked around and saw that most of these wars seem to be perpetuated by a relative handful of people, many of whom seem to be on line for 18 or more hours a day which suggests both a lack of sleep and an addiction to stimulants such as cocaine or meth.

I actually remember when I bottoming out with drinking, how I would binge and go on an Internet tear, lashing out full of rage.

That didn’t improve my life.

Sobriety did…

An Acquaintance of mine, Andrea James was curious about a bunch of the players in this World of Transwarcraft. When it comes to the awarding of points for honestly claiming their own words the crazies on the Transgender Borg side win hands down.  They are out there putting their name on their words and often their pictures.  As a result they take the heat.

The Sisters of Transsexual Purity, on the other hand often hide behind aliases.  The ones who don’t tend to be far less dogmatic.

Their attacks come off as though they are right wing operators being paid to follow a script.

They are dogmatic in the same way as the Dominionists who are exposed by Southern Poverty Law Center and People for the American Way.  They use virtually the same scripts.

They hide behind numerous aliases, create different e-mail accounts and even go so far as to put up dummy blogs with zero posts.

In some ways they are very much like Denise Tree aka Kiira Tirea and others.

Refuse to take their bullshit or call them on it and immediately they slip into ad homenim attacks.

It’s easy to dismiss these people as cranks, failures and  nut jobs.

But along with being a general pain in the ass, and annoying they destroy people’s ability to work together for similar purposes even when those purposes aren’t the same.

Lately rather than fighting with people I’ve found myself wondering, Cui bono.  Who benefits?

What if these trolls aren’t just attention whores getting their jollies by stirring shit.

What if stirring shit is how they earn a living?

I wonder because I’ve discovered there are people out there who will pay for people to write reviews for businesses.  But there is even a darker side there are people who get paid to go on the sites of other business and write negative reviews.

Weird and nasty.

Not to mention extremely boring that people are still pushing the same BS they were pushing ten years ago.

The ramblings of a poor, obsessed homophobe for your enjoyment and pity

Far be it from me to put someone in a spotlight as a subject of derision to be made fun of, but this child deserves it.

He kept sending me messages on the Signorile video until I blocked him, so he took the time to send me this long rambling message. This is sad homophobia defined.

Just read and understand the ignorant mindset behind some people’s reasonings of why they treat us lgbtqs like freaks:

.. you blocked my responses to your post Alvin in YouTube, but I am not surprised, people like you want to block the Truth, to silence it like Chris Mathews even said in his video.

No matter, here it is anyway…

Do you know what it will take for a t-r-u-l-y better world to happen? Brutal honesty, and then Responsible Behavior from everyone! It will take for every single person to look at their lives, identify what they are doing wrong, and correct it, no excuses, …none!

And what is correct and what is wrong behavior? Easy, look at the outcomes of the action, and then it becomes clear as daylight. And we all have flaws, things we need to work on, we assume too much, we care too much about our own selves and not enough for others, we pursue material things when we should we working more on our own selves, we consume too much, we rape the land too much, we neglect one another, we indulge on physical pleasures too much, when we should be more spiritual and protect and not abuse our bodies, and on and on.

And of course, out of those many flawed lives, many negative “side-effects” blossom, like children raised in neglectful environmental/dysfunctional/abusive environments, hell… some of the people having children are themselves children! Many children (like the case of homosexuals) are atrophied by those bad environments, and make the incorrect Gender Identification, or what is called Gender Identity Disorder in Philology, which later blossoms into full homosexuality. Remember, there is no “gay gene”.

My problem with people like you is that the dysfunction you have you seem to try justify it, to excuse it, when in reality if you look at it… A-L-L of it, it is clearly a bad behavior. High disease rates, high mortality rates, high cost to the individual and society, unstable relationships, physical damage to the body due to the erroneous sexual acts, and on and on… and on! It is all here: (Editor’s note - the poor child supplied his page but I refuse to give it out. I’ve seen it and it’s the same cherry-picked or discredited junk science we have seen repeatedly but ths time grouped together in one sad package. The young man obviously took so much work in gathering together his statistics that he didn’t read them thoroughly or derive where they came from. A little note, my friend. There is no such thing as “gay bowel syndrome.” Dumb ass.)

You tell the doctors that have to deal with the many diseases being spread in the population more and more by highly sexually promiscuous homosexuals, since many of homosexuals happen to be asymptomatic, carrying disease most are not even aware of, but are spreading it on to others thanks to your reckless sexual behaviors that homosexuality is good… go on and tell them…

You go on and tell the taxpayer that the health care cost going higher and higher every year due to more and more homosexuals (and other liberals as well) doing reckless sexual behaviors, causing more people to get sick with preventable disease it is a good thing… you go ahead… you tell them (just look at the HIV cost numbers in Canada in that webpage)…go ahead tell them…

Wrongs are wrong, no matter how much you make like doing it, no matter how much you may “feel” you have no choice but to do it! The same thing has happen to other groups like the alcoholics and smokers, people that would say they had “no control over their actions”… “they couldn’t help it”… And just because others may be doing other things wrong still does not make a wrong right… that is the mentality of a child.

In the end, humanity will never achieve a better world as long as groups like the homosexuals stay in denial and keep pushing their dysfunction upon society as an “OK” thing”, as a “harmless thing”, ignoring and even blocking the data again and again that point and says, hey you have a problem…

I leave you with this thought by the great Greek philosopher Socrates (469–399 B.C.E.) that said that the biggest endeavor for a person in life is to “TRULY know thyself” or what he called, to have an Analyzed Life, he wrote: “…The unexamined life is not worth living…”

And please note that I have refuted his claims in a myriad of past posts, including this one which addresses in particularly the lies of “shortened mortality rate,” the “unstable relationships,” and the “promiscuity argument.”

My prime objective for posting this child’s pathetic ramble is for you see the folks who have dived  headfirst into the pool of lies pushed by the religious right.

But with this posting comes a caveat. Not everyone believes this mess and the wilder these folks gets, the more mainstream we are becoming.

So in essence, you are witnessing death throes of archaic ignorance.

But I’m feeling a little guilty about it. Who knew watching the death throes of archaic ignorance would be so much fun to watch?

One more thing that someone just pointed out to me. What’s the definition of stupid irony? Using a quote from a gay man (Socrates) to end a ramble criticizing gays.

Activists Breathe New Life Into May Day

From The Nation:  http://www.thenation.com/article/167611/activists-breathe-new-life-may-day

April 27, 2012  
Unlike the rest of the world’s democracies, the United States doesn’t use the metric system, doesn’t require employers to provide workers with paid vacations, hasn’t abolished the death penalty, and doesn’t celebrate May Day as an official national holiday.Outside the US, May 1 is international workers’ day, observed with speeches, rallies, and demonstrations. Ironically, this celebration of working-class solidarity originated in the US labor movement in the United States and soon spread around the world, but it never earned official recognition in this country. Since 2006, however, American unions and immigrant rights activists have resurrected May 1 as a day of protest. And this year, in the wake of Occupy Wall Street and the rebirth of a national movement for social justice, a wide spectrum of activist groups will be out in the streets to give voice to the growing crusade for democracy and equality.The original May Day was born of the movement for an eight-hour workday. After the Civil War, unregulated capitalism ran rampant in America. It was the Gilded Age, a time of merger mania, increasing concentration of wealth, and growing political influence by corporate power brokers known as Robber Barons. New technologies made possible new industries, which generated great riches for the fortunate few, but at the expense of workers, many of them immigrants, who worked long hours, under dangerous conditions, for little pay.As the gap between the rich and other Americans widened dramatically, workers began to resist in a variety of ways. The first major wave of labor unions pushed employers to limit the workday to ten, then eight, hours. The 1877 strike by tens of thousands of railroad, factory and mine workers—which shut down the nation’s major industries and was brutally suppressed by the corporations and their friends in government—was the first of many mass actions to demand living wages and humane working conditions. By 1884, the campaign had gained enough momentum that the predecessor to the American Federation of Labor adopted a resolution at its annual meeting, “that eight hours shall constitute legal day’s labor from and after May 1, 1886.”

Let’s just say it: The Republicans are the problem.

From The Washington Post:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/lets-just-say-it-the-republicans-are-the-problem/2012/04/27/gIQAxCVUlT_story.html

By Thomas E. Mann and Norman J. Ornstein

Rep. Allen West, a Florida Republican, was recently captured on video asserting that there are “78 to 81” Democrats in Congress who are members of the Communist Party. Of course, it’s not unusual for some renegade lawmaker from either side of the aisle to say something outrageous. What made West’s comment — right out of the McCarthyite playbook of the 1950s — so striking was the almost complete lack of condemnation from Republican congressional leaders or other major party figures, including the remaining presidential candidates.

It’s not that the GOP leadership agrees with West; it is that such extreme remarks and views are now taken for granted.

We have been studying Washington politics and Congress for more than 40 years, and never have we seen them this dysfunctional. In our past writings, we have criticized both parties when we believed it was warranted. Today, however, we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

When one party moves this far from the mainstream, it makes it nearly impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the country’s challenges.

Bishops Play Church Queens as Pawns

From The New York Times:  http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/29/opinion/sunday/dowd-bishops-play-church-queens-as-pawns.html?_r=1

IT is an astonishing thing that historians will look back and puzzle over, that in the 21st century, American women were such hunted creatures.

Even as Republicans try to wrestle women into chastity belts, the Vatican is trying to muzzle American nuns.

Who thinks it’s cool to bully nuns? While continuing to heal and educate, the community of sisters is aging and dying out because few younger women are willing to make such sacrifices for a church determined to bring women to heel.

Yet the nuns must be yanked into line by the crepuscular, medieval men who run the Catholic Church.

“It’s not terribly unlike the days of yore when they singled out people in the rough days of the Inquisition,” said Kenneth Briggs, the author of “Double Crossed: Uncovering the Catholic Church’s Betrayal of American Nuns.”

Student protests force Quebec’s Liberal Party convention out of Montreal

From Raw Story:  http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/04/29/student-protests-force-quebecs-liberal-party-convention-out-of-montreal/

By Agence France-Presse
Sunday, April 29, 2012

MONTREAL — The Liberal Party of Quebec Premier Jean Charest, faced with a student protest movement that has turned violent, said Sunday it was relocating its annual convention to a city outside Montreal.

The party, which has been in power for nine years in the French-speaking Canadian province that is home to eight million people, had been scheduled to hold its party meeting at the Centre Mont-Royal in Montreal May 4-6.

Instead, it will hold the convention in Victoriaville, 170 kilometers (105 miles) to the east of Montreal, the party said in a statement.

Since mid-February, the provincial government has faced a stiff challenge from students angry over plans to raise school fees as part of an effort to rein in the budget deficit.

Tuition in Quebec had been frozen since the province’s “Quiet Revolution” of the 1960s in a bid to boost access to post-secondary education, but it began to creep up in the 1990s.
