At this point I think they're putting these things in the street knowing full well people are going to leave marks on purpose or not thus giving them something else to whine about.

Hoping this is someone sick idea of a sick joke but nowadays it's getting harder and harder to tell.

Trans "woman" wants a uterus transplant into him so that "she" can be the first trans "woman" to have an abortion.
Do you need any more proof these people are mentally ill?

Would it be any more of a joke than women claiming to be the victims of not being allowed to murder their kids?

These days, it seems my morning starts with some "What the hell?" story that I read, and then slowly escalates into greater madness. This morning I was reading about some cosmetologist getting raked over the coals because she wouldn't wax a "transgender woman's" wiener and nuts. She felt uncomfortable handling male genitalia, and that was too much for the wokes.

Now I've read the above, and I have to wonder how much more out there of a story I will read by the end of the day.

And I suppose they were yelling this is MAGA country too right?

But it gets better.

Guess they're going to start arresting every kid on a scooter within 100 yards of that thing
It's a street moron, people are going to leave marks

Update for the crime of the century

Quote
Three Washington teens could face ten years in jail after being arrested for making skid marks on an LGBT rainbow road mural while riding e-scooters.

Nineteen-year-old Ruslan V. V Turko and two unnamed minors were arrested on Wednesday for first-degree malicious mischief after vandalizing the rainbow Pride mural that sits in front of Riverfront Park located in Spokane, Washington.

Turko appeared in court on Thursday, alongside legal counsel. Prosecutors requested a $15,000 bond that would cover the approximate cost of re-painting the mural. The teen was later released on his own recognizance on the condition that he does not return to the crosswalk, or the other suspects.
10 years??? I doubt they would actually get sentenced to that but still and you never know nowadays.

and to make this even sillier
Quote
Lime, the company that creates the e-scooters, was appalled by the incident, and issued a statement on Friday, that shared their support for the LGBTQ community.
Trying to head off that assault scooter lawsuit?

I think 10 years is pretty light.  Should be crucifixion to discourage these minor insurrections. [/sarcasm]

I want someone to paint a large American flag in the same street and see how the city reacts if someone leaves skid marks on it.

Wouldn't it be a violation of the flag codes to paint the US flag on a street like that?

A top cancer charity has apologized for using the word 'cervix' instead of trans-friendly 'front hole.'

The Canadian Cancer Society, which is run by philanthropist Andrea Seale, acknowledged the LGBTQ+ community on a webpage dedicated to cervical cancer, under the page's 'words matter' section.

The non-profit said that 'many' non-binary people and transgender men have 'mixed feelings' or 'feel distanced' from the term cervix.

'We recognize that many trans men and non-binary people may have mixed feelings about or feel distanced from words like "cervix",' the statement said.

They SHOULD 'feel distanced' from the term cervix if they're a man in the real world.  :facepalm:

Quote
'You may prefer other words, such as “front hole.” We recognize the limitations of the words we’ve used while also acknowledging the need for simplicity. Another reason we use words like “cervix” is to normalize the reality that men can have these body parts too.'


Real world reality check! If they have a cervix then they are a woman NOT a man.

Most know I don't follow any sportsballs whatsoever, but this popped up in my newsfeed this morning. This Caitlin Clark gal is apparently being regularly abused by POC players, with zero repercussions.

https://www.outkick.com/sports/caitlin-clark-going-seriously-injured-racial-animus-continues-bobby-burack

Some are saying it's not only because she's white but straight as well.

Quote
Bill Maher believes Caitlin Clark is being picked on by WNBA rivals because she is heterosexual in a 'very lesbian' league.

The late-night TV host also claimed that both and sex race play their part after Clark was knocked to the ground by Chicago's Chennedy Carter.

'It’s (because) women are catty, the league is very lesbian and she’s not, and there’s race. There’s a lot going on,' Maher said following the incident, which sent shockwaves around the sporting world.

'There’s also a racial element to this... it’s not always racism when a white person succeeds.'

Sorry, should have been more clear:  Kimberly Parker Tamlin-Vesper has been suspended from X.  That was apparantly too racist for Elon and Co.
