Friends, this whole OP seems really pushing the boundaries....still it's game. But I don't think the intention was to land where it did later in. I have received adverse comment and have been requested to Moderate. Please my friends, One and All, Please rethink taking your topics to the edge...... PLOTUS

Years ago we have handled much more harder topics than this, so dont worry.
I have sayed many times before Freija is using standard  "left" systems to block and try and overwhelm people. Its an old system and not used by the better trained people, but it is a simple system that can be used by most people.
When she has her feet on the ground she is interesting and informative, but when on a rant I just find it boring and if honest I dont bother answering her. When a person starts ranting its best to just let them get on with it , the next think that will happen is the "trans" card will be played, but I hope she does not do that.

I've looked into some of these topics that Freija brought up in other forums, it's a complex issue and worthy of not only it's own thread, but I was actually serious about writing a book about this.

I had considered this thread to be about a specific incident and although the topic is involved, it shouldn't get hijacked for a personal crusade and plastered with huge posts filled with text.

To me, this is about the safety and integrity of "Drag Queen Story Hour" and how this incident illustrates the gravest concerns of straight parents being verified. IMO, this is a covered up, under reported story related to a nefarious agenda of the progressive liberals. If this story hour program were strictly about the children, there would be no emphasis on cross dressing or gender choices. In fact, I could handle a conservatively dressed drag queen that was dressed as a woman for story hour, but not some gay pride parade refugee that looks like a demonic peacock.

Relax, folks. This can be handled without coming to blows. I'm no stranger to public slug-fests, but this ain't one of them, or at least it doesn't need to be.

@"Michigan Swamp Buck" made a thread concerning "drag queens". As has been pointed out to me, not by MSB, and not by Freija, either, the general public does not understand there is a difference between them and genuine transsexuals, and tends to lump them together into the same wicker basket. Freija is acutely aware that there is a difference, and moreover realizes that most folks don't understand that difference. All she is doing is trying to educate the public on that, to help other folks from making asses of themselves in adult conversation.

So, while the posts ARE somewhat off-topic, they are at least peripheral, as well as enlightening and educational if one takes the time to read them. It's not everyone who has access to an individual "on the inside" of the issue, so to speak, and we are fortunate that we have such a person to enlighten us.

On the plus side, the fact that folks realize there IS a difference to even be upset about "off-topic" posts is a good sign that she at least left a mark, and made the point.

If you don't want to read the posts, scroll on by. Stay in the dark. no harm, no foul. You are clearly not the person to be educated.

In the meantime, while you are scrolling, I'll try to get this sorted out to everyone's satisfaction.

First of all, I only got involved in this thread about drag queen story hour because someone else took it off topic and started talking about puberty blockers for trans kids. Otherwise I wouldn't have even gotten involved.

Secondly I apologize for getting carried away. As noted, providing accurate information about trans youth is something I am very passionate about.

So for now, I will just shut the fuck up and make everyone happy.  tinybiggrin

Check your in box. I have a potential different solution. Just shutting the fuck up ain't gonna do anyone any good. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I'm going back to reading your previous post... so gimme about an hour or so to get anything done  tinylaughing

ETA: Your first video - it wasn't the fact she is transsexual, it was that Valley Girl accent I found offputting. I've not been able to withstand that accent since the early 80's without being out off my feed. That nasal, whiny speech pattern always makes me think the speaker is gonna need some bigger shoulder pads to avoid a brain aneurysm from speaking, regardless of her history or natal sex - did I use "sex" correctly that time? The same thing goes for Surfer Speech. Can't take it, brah. Probably just a function of my tragic case of Californiaphobia.

In this particular thread, it is about gay drag queens affiliated with the "Drag Queen Story Hour" program that are also pedos. An issue that has concerned straight parents since this program started.

Not every drag queen is gay or a pedo and sure there are all kinds of things to consider in regards to drag, but his is highly specific with regards to this incident related to an agenda.

This is not the only recent case of this type.


Quote:Did a Convicted Sex Offender Read to Children at a Houston Public Library?
Various websites accurately reported the basic facts surrounding the conviction of Albert Alfonso Garza, who performs as "Tatiana Mala Niña."  

 
Claim - Albert Alfonso Garza was convicted of sexually assaulting a boy in 2006, before taking part in "Drag Queen Storytime" in a Houston public library in 2017 and 2018.

Origin - In October 2019 we received multiple inquiries from readers about the accuracy of reports claiming that a drag queen who performed at a public library in Houston, Texas, was a registered sex offender who had been convicted of sexually assaulting an eight year-old boy.

Back in March 2019, The New American website posted an article with the headline “Drag Queen Who Read to Kids at Houston Library is Convicted Pedophile,” which reported that “A drag queen who read stories to children at a Houston public library last year is a convicted pedophile considered to be at risk of repeating his offense — a fact uncovered by parents opposed to ‘Drag Queen Storytime,’ not by library officials, law enforcement, or the supposed watchdog news media.”

Hello! 

First, you got involved in this thread because of my posts, and I for one appreciated your response - I simply felt we may have needed a new topic for the discussion overall. 

I have nothing against rational, reasoned discussion of the important social topics of our day, of which this is most definitely one, and we need to have these discussions, regardless of others feelings - this affects us as a society, and we can't make informed decisions going forward without discussion such as we began here. 

As a human being, I feel there's absolutely nothing for you to apologize, and if you STFU I will see it as my fault for having caused offense right after I decided to post again, and I don't feel that's right because neither of us did anything "wrong", or offensive (well perhaps I caused offense, but I had no intention of doing such)

It's good you speak your mind and share your experiences, information and thoughts... :) don't apologize for that! We all to the same...

Read what Ninurta messaged you, and let's take it forward in a positive manner from here... let's do it! :)

I think that's another difference - between "Drag Queens" and "cross dressers". I have never in my life met a drag queen who is conservatively dressed. They ALL seem to be pretty... flamboyant. I think it's part of the persona. Cross dressers seem to be a different breed, and most seem to just want to wear women's clothes and try to pass unnoticed, which flamboyance is anathema to.

I've had several gay friends - this is how I know you can't catch the gay - and at least one of them is all about the drag queens. Had his office festooned with images of drag queens that he had painted himself. He is pretty artistic, in the grand scheme of things. But even he didn't go all flamboyant when he entered the office "Miss (insert company name here) Pageant. He won, by the way. that's office politics for ya, I reckon. Made him so proud that he kept the winner's banner, or bandoleer, or ribbon, or whatever those things are called, draped across his desk until the office closed down. And the tiara. Kept that damned tiara on a place of honor on his immaculate desk.

Hell, even I wore a dress to work once, and I'm not a cross dresser. A bunch of us managers got together and had a "Managers in dresses" day to improve office morale. There was betting going on about whether we would actually do it or not, and all but one of us did. One guy chickened out, even though the Boss went so far as to bring one of her own dresses in for him to wear. Grace looked at me pretty crooked when I asked if I could borrow one of her dresses... and if I can survive that, I can survive anything! I didn't shave off my beard, and I still wore my tactical boots, but dayum I have nice legs! I've not had the urge to wear women's clothes before, nor since. It DID raise office morale - especially among the winners in the betting pool - and there was much mirth to be had over it for weeks after.

The women managers did not wear dresses that day. Wimps.

My point is, you cannot catch the gay, you cannot catch being a cross dresser, and I'm pretty sure you can't catch the transgender. I doubt it will damage any kids to that point, it's just a bunch of flamboyant drag queens trying to make a statement. If the kids have learned anything at home, then seeing one ain't gonna be a shock to their system. 

The matter of this particular individual being a pedophile is more serious. Those types are, generally, banned from being around children - potential new victims - for the rest of their days upon conviction. They cannot, for example, live within a certain distance of a schoolyard, and have to register in most jurisdictions on a public registry. So I have to wonder how this ever happened I the first place, regardless of the lifestyle choices of the individual. I also wonder if they are back in prison now on a second or third strike stemming from this incident.

Oh wait! Me STFU? Hardly but I will address the topic here more directly.

Drag queens – 99% of the time are campy flamboyant gay men who consider drag as a performance art. Look at that TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race. It’s very popular and has been on for like 10 years. I’ve watched about 5 minutes of it and don’t understand the attraction or how drag has escaped the bounds of seedy gay clubs to hit the mainstream?

If I put my pink pussy hat on for a minute and fail to recognize the art form, the parody that is drag or “womanface” if you will isn’t a whole lot different than blackface. Being outrageous and over the top is its only saving grace of not being offensive and degrading to women, which I still kind of think it is but a lot women still seem to like it.

Cross-dressers – Cross-dresser is a politically correct and inoffensive woke de-sexualized, non-fetishistic way to say transvestite. Yes technically, doing drag is men wearing women’s clothing and a few drag queens may be transvestic or even pre-trans but they generally are not. Cross-dresser and transvestite are synonymous but not all of them take their fetishistic behavior so far as to be considered an actual disorder.  

Read more:
Transvestic Disorder DSM-5 302.3 (F65.1): Symptoms, Treatments

Transvestic Disorder DSM-5 302.3 (F65.1)

Quote:Transvestic disorder is categorized as a paraphilic disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), and characterized by the sexual excitement individuals experience when they cross-dress or think about cross-dressing. Men with transvestic disorder typically have autogynephilia as well, or the tendency to become sexually aroused when imagining himself as a woman. The fantasies that accompany autogynephilia can focus on either the idea of having female physiological functions (e.g., menstruation), engaging in stereotypical feminine behavior (e.g., wearing pink, sewing, etc.), or having female anatomy (e.g., breasts).

Most transvestites or to play nice, cross-dressers are heterosexual men, often married, that get turned on playing dress up and then masturbate in their frilly knickers. Autogynephilia (AGP) in these men, that I previously briefly mentioned, often leads to developing full blown gender dysphoria which I should point out may result in the same desired outcome but is completely different from gender dysphoria experienced in androphilic trans children and adolescents. One form of GD is innate and in-born, the other is acquired for other, usually paraphilic reasons and why I think distinctions between the two “types” is important to understand because you certainly won’t hear it from the trans mafia.

How or why or whoever thought it was a good idea for drag queens to read to kids completely escapes me? I think kids see drag queens like modern day clowns or something but I still think it is dumb and as far as the pedophilia thing goes, straight men are just as likely to be pedos as gay men and the majority of the victims of pedophilia are female.

@Michigan Swamp Buck On topic enough for you? I really am sorry for throwing things so off track. Enough so that I won’t even mention most consider “tranny” to be a pejorative or if you’ve tried to educate yourself about the trans topic from that other place that starts with an A, you could really do better.

@Grace and @Ninurta
Thank you for recognizing I am only trying to have an intelligent and informative discussion about things that are very complex. I haven’t read my messages yet but will do that now and don’t worry, I am not offended in the least and am not likely to be nor am I trying to be offensive, just educational and you might just have to admit, some of those that have managed to wade through my walls of text might have learned a teeny bit or thought more deeply about the subject? That is my only intent.

Look at the words you use, look at the formation of the text. What you write drips of arrogance and superiority. Why do you think people need to be "educated", and why do you think you are the one who can do it ?
Your writings have the flavor of desperation , its as if when you are "educating" people you are trying to confirm something to yourself.
To me and I stress to me you seem very insecure in your life and who you are, unhappy but trapped in the need to present something you are no longer sure about and have not been for a long time.
I have said this to you before, be who you are, be happy.
Could it be that you have surrounded yourself with people who have molded you into what they want not what you want, not who you are and fear they will walk away from you if you start to show doubt in what they want you to be, perhaps you fear they will turn on you.
Its a hard life living and trying to justified a life others want you to be when you want to be something else.
What I want for you and for every one including myself is not to face the horror of when one is dieing , when a person is thinking of the life they have had, that the last thing they think is "I wish I had "
I am not going to get into a war of words with you, I see no reason why I should, I have a life to live

my husband (whoever that is tinylaughing) and I each have different hobbys which have some measure of importance to our future survival, particularly as we aren't in the well off category. 

His is pretty much anything to do with firearms, and mine vaping. 

I started vaping to quit smoking, but got into the DIY aspects after seeing the potential for it to become cost prohibive for us in our reasonably near future. 

He's always enjoyed firearms as a hobbyist but is likewise boning up on some DIY aspects as well, as he sees potential need there. 

When he starts talking about all things firearms, there are times I wonder how I managed to fall right in the middle of that conversation, and I'm very certain I have heard his eyes roll when I likewise start talking about the ins and outs of coil building and wicking...  

While we appreciate that the other has knowledge we will or may need in the future (or do already need now) what the other knows is just not always that riveting to the other of us. . 

And that's topics that are necessary just to survive in a manner we find acceptable as people without means. (I value nicotine, he appears to value the safety of my nicotine stash... lol)

I said all that just to illustrate this point:

Just because someone is knowledgeable about something doesn't mean they are arrogant, and just because you don't care to learn about a topic doesn't mean that topic isn't useful to know about, especially those which affect us societally.

@Wallfire Aww c’mon man, knock it off! This will be off topic but this needs to end now!

Look, I should deal with this privately but with practically every post I make, you chime in publicly with some paranoid schizophrenic nonsense about how I am a bot or programmed agent of the “left/Islam” or Russia working from a scripted playbook or some other such bullshit because of my verbiage or writing style with an attacking pseudo-psychological analysis of my behavior, personality and character. I have politely asked you to please stop this before but you persist therefore it is only fair that I respond to you publicly. My apologies to the rest of the board.

What you mistake for arrogance is confidence and knowledge and the combined result of many years of study, research and direct personal experience. What I see happening here is like a committee of stuffy old white straight conservative men sitting around a table discussing black or women’s or LGBT issues with having nary a clue what you’re talking about or the input or experiences of those being discussed and circle-jerks like this rarely produce productive or meaningful results or conclusions. Many here don’t even understand what they’re discussing or what these things are and if I can help with that or bring some clarity into the discussion, then that’s what I’m going to do. I’m sorry if you don’t like it.

ENOUGH!

This ends, right now, right here. If I want to watch a pissing contest, I'll go to a bar.

I've tried to handle this privately, but since it keeps on going public, here it is. If you don't slap someone upside the head, they have no reason to slap back. The slapping in this thread stops, right now. Everyone has had their say in the pissing contest, no need to just keep on saying it. It adds nothing to the discussion.

The topic of this thread is "Former President of Drag Queen Story Hour Foundation Arrested on Child Porn", not each other. From this point forward, I will start deleting any further off topic posts here that do not comport with that topic.

Oh boy, guess the Hot Button Issues Forum was the right place for this! I am going off topic here, and you might just delete this, however . . .

I got a less heated exchange going from the Neo-Nazi group I accidentally walked into on Gab when I questioned their eugenics thread. They were so polite explaining how pure races were superior, how the Jews were behind the communist take over of America and how Hitler was not really such a bad guy, they even shared an interesting video on their hero.

Obviously, after figuring out what was going on, I stopped following them. But it was a logical and intelligent thread and no one was reduced to this.

As off topic as this post is, it relates to this thread in that everyone provided logical arguments with source material to back it and they didn't take anything personally. At first, they believed I was trolling them, but after explaining my position better, the conversation went smoothly. I told them that their group wasn't my thing and went on my way, they still follow me though (I should be careful now I guess).

Obviously, after figuring out what was going on, I stopped following them. But it was a logical and intelligent thread and no one was reduced to this.

As off topic as this post is, it relates to this thread in that everyone provided logical arguments with source material to back it and they didn't take anything personally. At first, they believed I was trolling them, but after explaining my position better, the conversation went smoothly. I told them that their group wasn't my thing and went on my way, they still follow me though (I should be careful now I guess).

Well, it IS your thread, soooo ...  tinylaughing

But seriously, personal attacks against other members rather than the topic at hand, and just pure bickering about unrelated stuff, are what I consider "off topic", and it is those that will be dealt with by post deletion.

Be thankful the NeoNazis didn't try to show you "Birth of a Nation" by DW Griffith. That one is a long silent film from 1915 or so, and it takes a lot of card reading to try to keep up with it, but it's still a favorite among Klannish types!  tinybigeyes

“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”

-Aldous Huxley
