Four Stories that make me shake my head

I was hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion with a friend recently who told me he was not opti­mistic about soci­ety, while I said we would both live to see things get better.

How­ever here are a few sto­ries on the web that sup­port his view:

Item, How dare you not want a woman with a penis (via Ace of Spades):

So here’s the ques­tion, what is the cra­zi­est thing you’ve seen or heard?

At first I thought it might be this story, which ace cov­ered a month or three ago, about some con­fused and/​or men­tally ill British boys who like to put on dresses, pre­tend that they’re girls, and then are dis­mayed to dis­cover that nor­mal teenaged boys don’t want to get into rela­tion­ships with them when they are found out that they’re boys wear­ing dresses.

What makes it such a strong con­tender for the title is that it’s such a multi-​layer cake of crazy:

1. British par­ents, schools, the med­ical pro­fes­sion are encour­ag­ing boys in their delu­sions rather than pro­vid­ing ther­apy.
2. The confused/​mentally ill boys seem to be shocked at their lack of suc­cess with nor­mal boys.
3. The BBC is actu­ally mak­ing a series about all of this
4. …and por­tray­ing this fes­ti­val of per­ver­sity as just another specie of teen angst. You know, like pim­ples, school pres­sures, or find­ing a prom date.

But crazy as that is, I actu­ally man­aged to find some­thing even crazier:

What kills me about this post is back in the days when the left was all about sci­ence and evo­lu­tion the idea that evo­lu­tion and nat­ural selec­tion would cause a man to want a spouse capa­ble of pass­ing on their genetic mate­r­ial, now such a move is con­sid­ered racism by our “betters”

Item: I’m old enough to remem­ber when Women’s Shel­ters were about pro­tect­ing vul­ner­a­ble women (via Breitbart)

Two women were kicked out of a home­less shel­ter to make room for a man because he said he is a trans­gen­der woman, accord­ing to a Cana­dian news report. The women objected when they were told they would have to share a bed­room and live in the shel­ter with the man, and so “both were asked to leave the shel­ter for good,” said the TV reporter.

But remem­ber for the left ide­ol­ogy trumps all else and if this means more women on the street and unsafe, well at least the shel­ter own­ers won’t be called big­ots by Hollywood.

Item: Every­one will be Nazi’s for 15 min­utes (via PJ Media):

Prince­ton University’s class of 2012 planned its five-​year reunion party around a Star Wars theme, call­ing it “Revenge of the Fifth.” Accord­ing to Heat­Street, the alumni planned to dress in cos­tume and many pur­chased stormtrooper cos­tumes for the event. In late Feb­ru­ary, how­ever, the Reunion Com­mit­tee sent an email ban­ning this par­tic­u­lar cos­tume — because it might remind some peo­ple of Nazis.

Who knew that when you bought your kids those stormtrooper toys you were prepar­ing them to be the next Hitler’s of the world. I guess George Lucas should be sued.

Item, Gay scan­dals in the church? What Gay Scan­dals?: (via the local​.es)

Juan Car­los Martínez, 40, pro­voked more than raised eye­brows when he joined the town’s car­ni­val fes­tiv­i­ties last week and posed on a float dressed as the leg­endary lothario, com­plete with dress­ing gown, captain’s cap and cigar.

At his sides were two rather delec­table com­pan­ions: Two men decked in black leo­tards over stock­ings and a barely-​there net­ting skirt and topped off with bunny ears over colour­ful wigs. Pre­sum­ably they also had white cot­ton­tails pinned to their backsides.

In fair­ness Fr. Martínez story while a very pub­lic dis­grace is less scan­dalous than this one

In the south­ern city of Naples, for exam­ple, a priest was recently sus­pended from the parish of Santa Maria degli Angeli over claims he held gay orgies and used Inter­net sites to recruit poten­tial part­ners whom he paid for sex.

The alle­ga­tions con­cern­ing the Rev. Mario D’Orlando were brought to the atten­tion of the dio­cese when an anony­mous let­ter was sent to a Naples bishop. D’Orlando denied the charges when he was sum­moned by the city’s arch­bishop, Car­di­nal Crescen­zio Sepe, but is now fac­ing a for­mal inquiry con­ducted by local church officials.

which at least didn’t involve alter boys and may I say the turn­ing of the child sex scan­dals in the church which over­whelm­ing involved homo­sex­ual acts from a “Gay Catholic Priest” scan­dal to just a “Catholic Priest” scan­dal is one of the great pro­pa­ganda tri­umphs of the MSM/​Left, in fact I still encounter peo­ple who argue that man want­ing sex from boys has noth­ing to do with homosexuality.

Now I’ll grant that all of these sto­ries advance my friend’s pes­simism but I still pre­fer to remain opti­mistic and remem­ber, the future belongs to those who show up.

I was having a conversation with a friend recently who told me he was not optimistic about society, while I said we would both live to see things get better.

However here are a few stories on the web that support his view:

Item, How dare you not want a woman with a penis (via Ace of Spades):

So here’s the question, what is the craziest thing you’ve seen or heard?

At first I thought it might be this story, which ace covered a month or three ago, about some confused and/or mentally ill British boys who like to put on dresses, pretend that they’re girls, and then are dismayed to discover that normal teenaged boys don’t want to get into relationships with them when they are found out that they’re boys wearing dresses.

What makes it such a strong contender for the title is that it’s such a multi-layer cake of crazy:

1. British parents, schools, the medical profession are encouraging boys in their delusions rather than providing therapy.
2. The confused/mentally ill boys seem to be shocked at their lack of success with normal boys.
3. The BBC is actually making a series about all of this
4. …and portraying this festival of perversity as just another specie of teen angst. You know, like pimples, school pressures, or finding a prom date.

But crazy as that is, I actually managed to find something even crazier:

What kills me about this post is back in the days when the left was all about science and evolution the idea that evolution and natural selection would cause a man to want a spouse capable of passing on their genetic material, now such a move is considered racism by our “betters”

Item:  I’m old enough to remember when Women’s Shelters were about protecting vulnerable women (via Breitbart)

Two women were kicked out of a homeless shelter to make room for a man because he said he is a transgender woman, according to a Canadian news report. The women objected when they were told they would have to share a bedroom and live in the shelter with the man, and so “both were asked to leave the shelter for good,” said the TV reporter.

But remember for the left ideology trumps all else and if this means more women on the street and unsafe, well at least the shelter owners won’t be called bigots by Hollywood.

Item:  Everyone will be Nazi’s for 15 minutes (via PJ Media):

Princeton University’s class of 2012 planned its five-year reunion party around a Star Wars theme, calling it “Revenge of the Fifth.” According to HeatStreet, the alumni planned to dress in costume and many purchased stormtrooper costumes for the event. In late February, however, the Reunion Committee sent an email banning this particular costume — because it might remind some people of Nazis.

Who knew that when you bought your kids those stormtrooper toys you were preparing them to be the next Hitler’s of the world.  I guess George Lucas should be sued.

Item, Gay scandals in the church?  What Gay Scandals?: (via the local.es)

Juan Carlos Martínez, 40, provoked more than raised eyebrows when he joined the town’s carnival festivities last week and posed on a float dressed as the legendary lothario, complete with dressing gown, captain’s cap and cigar.

At his sides were two rather delectable companions: Two men decked in black leotards over stockings and a barely-there netting skirt and topped off with bunny ears over colourful wigs. Presumably they also had white cottontails pinned to their backsides.

In fairness Fr. Martínez story while a very public disgrace is less scandalous than this one

In the southern city of Naples, for example, a priest was recently suspended from the parish of Santa Maria degli Angeli over claims he held gay orgies and used Internet sites to recruit potential partners whom he paid for sex.

The allegations concerning the Rev. Mario D’Orlando were brought to the attention of the diocese when an anonymous letter was sent to a Naples bishop. D’Orlando denied the charges when he was summoned by the city’s archbishop, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, but is now facing a formal inquiry conducted by local church officials.

which at least didn’t involve alter boys and may I say the turning of the child sex scandals in the church which overwhelming involved homosexual acts from a “Gay Catholic Priest” scandal to just a “Catholic Priest” scandal is one of the great propaganda triumphs of the MSM/Left, in fact I still encounter people who argue that man wanting sex from boys has nothing to do with homosexuality.

Now I’ll grant that all of these stories advance my friend’s pessimism but I still prefer to remain optimistic and remember, the future belongs to those who show up.
