    Its the tight wing jerks who want to start a civil war.

    ‘We want to get dirty’: Young Republicans Club founder doubles down on call for ‘war’ with American liberals

    Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Republicans Club, doubled down on Wednesday on his call to wage a “war” against American liberals. Appearing on Steve Bannon’s podcast, Wax rehashed many of the same themes in his weekend speech in which he threw out violent rhetoric to denounce his political opponents.

    Actually I can’t see the fatuous soft right wing liars getting their hands dirty.

    Right wingers groom people to hate and then provide them with guns.

    Cisgender is a term used to describe a person whose gender identity corresponds to their sex assigned at birth.

    Cis people will call a car ‘she’ and then insist pronouns must have biological reality.

    Once again for the christians in the room,

    Just like your genitals and your brain are not the same thing, Natal sex and Gender identity are not the same thing. It is your brain that determines who you are, not what is in your pants. People who don’t share your perspective identity are not a threat to you or anyone else. Try acting like Christ instead of acting like a christian.

    I love the hypocrisy of Republicans with this “Woke” issue. It’s as if they don’t do the same thing. I would bet a dollar that every politician calling masking “virtue signaling” wears a an American flag pin to signal their patriotism.

    Texas attorney general tried to compile list of transgender people in the state: report

    On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that officials working for Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton tried to get employees at the Texas Department of Public Safety to compile them a list of transgender people in Texas, by cross-referencing the people who had changed their sex on their driver’s license. “‘Need total number of changes from male to female and female to male for the last 24 months, broken down by month,’ the chief of the DPS’s driver license division emailed colleagues in the department on June 30, according to a copy of a message obtained by The Washington Post through a public records request,” reported Molly Hennessy-Fiske. “‘We won’t need DL/ID numbers at first but may need to have them later if we are required to manually look up documents.’ After more than 16,000 such instances were identified, DPS officials determined that a manual search would be needed to determine the reason for the changes, DPS spokesman Travis Considine told The Post in response to questions.”

    For roughly half a millennium the words sex and gender were interchangeable. There were only two sexes/genders – male/female; the terms sex/gender were both used for legal definition of a person. A century ago the split between the sexes was confirmed when it was discovered that females have X chromosomes and males all had at least one Y chromosome. In recent decades the gender term has been redefined. While the science still shows there are only two sexes, gender became a social construct which has impacted the legal definition. However, there is a simple solution.

    Both science and the law should stop using the gender term and only refer to sex. Science can easily make the change; changing the law will allow people to say they are male, female or “prefer not to state”. Gender would be exclusively a social construct; the phraseology places the law and science on the same page. [Next: Climate Changed Solved]

    What is it with the RW obsession with sex and gender? In terms of marriage, there is a legal contract made between two people recognized by the state. If you aren’t one of those two people in that contract, it isn’t your concern. If you’re talking about gender, if you aren’t that person, why is it any concern of yours?

    Becky got one part right, likely without intent, in portraying the guys as Neanderthal.

    Conservatives… can’t handle any change whatsoever. The world – and all that are in it – has never evolved or changed or learned. Stuck in the muck of patriarchal history. Bless their hearts.

    For conservatives the future must seem like a foreign country that they don’t feel welcome to visit…and they don’t know how to apply for a passport. I would pity them if they didn’t respond to everything with anger, fear and hatred.

    Right wingers are proud to be unwoke, totally disconnected from reality, how else can they tolerate all the right wing liars.

    “Woke” part of the phantasm smoke and mirrors the sleazy politicians use to distract you from the important issues of the day. It has no bearing on your life whatsoever, but be afraid of it anyway!

    Looks like the extremist, right wing, bible inspired war against all that does not conform to their narrow view on freedom and life in general has officially begun. Such a weak and obnoxious attitude to adopt to endear yourself to anyone except other bigoted thinkers. Anti-American intolerance has no place in our modern society of true freedom.

    “Woke” means being aware of the racism and other forms of prejudice still remaining in our society, systemic and otherwise.

    The opposite of “woke” is “ignorant.” You choose.
