Don't worry, most people know we're not trans

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

I rode with a man once many years ago, we glanced over at a statue of a little girl playing a fiddle. The man commented sarcastically, "wonder how long before they tear down that statue?"

I told him, "John, I really don't care, tear it down, let it stand, it makes no difference to me..."

He replied "one day they're going to destroy something you believe in..."

"John, they already destroyed everything I believed in."


Now I conclude, there is no good, there is no bad, there just is.

I believe in the woke agenda! How about that? Before you get cross and turn away, hear me out. "Woke" just means "awake". I would rather be awake than asleep.
A friend said "you know there was a tribe that fell asleep as soon as they were attacked. They are extinct now".
There are things wrong with wokiness but it's a necessary part of change.
What is "our way of life?" Where do MIS fit in with that way of life? Will the the woke agenda make our lives better or worse?

No, in this context "woke" means that you've drunk the politically-correct Kool-Aid. It has precisely nothing to do with a state of consciousness.

"Woke" is just a political word used to invalidate opinions of those on the left, similar to how words like "bigot", "racist", "sexist", etc are used to invalidate the opinions of those on the right. It's a growing list of words that when I see crop up... I change the channel.

More tribal nonsense from those who close their ears but never their mouths.

Sometimes I think about setting up a Kool-aid stand on election say, where I will serve red and blue Kool-aid drinks.

The blue Kool-aid is 95% sugar (yes you'd eat it with a spoon).

The red Kool-aid has no sugar at all.

The blue will likely send you to the hospital... maybe the grave.

The red won't kill you but it taste like crap.

Such as it is with politics.

Woke'ness seems to be evolving and growing legs for sure. I'm going back to the original intent of the word.
My eyes are wide open. No kool-aid for me.
