    Is it just me being an old dinosaur, or is this just getting out of control to the point of ridiculousness? The eye can see around 7,000,000 colors but don’t feel the need to give a unique name to each and every single one do we? 2SLGBTQQIA (two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual)... End of rant!

    You know life is too f***ing easy when we’ve got the luxury of obsessing over the ridiculous.

    How do they not see the absurdity in this? This is like the concept that you should translate every public document to every language possibly...

    In 1000 years people will read about this alphabet soup in the history books as another example of post-truth thinking that led to our society's collapse.

    Well, Brussels is doing a pretty good job of that now. Backside of the ident page from my passport:

    (BTW that thing that looks like my head is - they have my portrait microperfed through the ident page itself.)

    I'm going up against a militant high school teacher right now who keeps working this stuff into assignments. Lots of parents are complaining about her to the school, but it isn't getting anywhere and she's going waaayyy of syllabus.

    Another thread about how old conversative men on gun forums are obsessed with anything LGBT. WGAF what they want to call themselves?

    It's just f'ing stupid. I try to ignore all this noise, but know when my youngest starts school in a few years, it will probably be hard to ignore.[thinking]

    It’s not what they think or choose to call themselves — it’s that they demand you accommodate. “Live and let live” is no longer the rule. “Validate and applaud my feelings” is becoming law of the land and violating those feelings is now effectively a hate crime.

    “I identify as X and so you must Y, or else my lawyer will make an example of you. Excuse me while I file an ERPO.”

    What the hell is 2 spirit? 99.99999% of the time I don't care. I just tried reading the wiki page on it and it's written with English words. But it's not English in meaning. I think it means their ancestors werent born here. Which is f***ing everyone so what the f*** and what does that have to do with the rest of it.

    Its not that anyone really GAF what they call themselves, its the hoops they demand that normal society jump through to accomodate their endless whining.

    In my world, it a man or a woman.....no other options.

    They were given an inch and now trying to take a hundred miles.

    Wow - I think it's literally this, an American Indian man who's accepted as a woman by the tribe. So he gets his own room in the dorm, is my guess. June is LGBT month apparently, so this stuff will be in the MSM every day.

    Don't forget auto sexual.

    That is when you get aroused by looking at yourself.

    I did have some, I thought it was overly complex gobbledegook. I thought it could be simplified to one sentence. Just treat your coworkers with kindness and respect...IMHO.
