Circus World

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods

Yes, because the modern/postmodern mythology is that race is a social construct and not biological - not about inherited potentials.
It's all about appearance and so if you alter appearance you alter reality...you can become whatever you want to become.
A male can become a female; a female can become male.
An Asia can become Caucasian; a Caucasian a Negro.
A human can become a fish...
Wait....that's taking it too far.
Animals are something else, because they cannot speak, so they cannot say what they want to become.
Logos....alogos - Greek for horse.
To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better

If 'transsexualism', why not 'transracialism', 'transageism' and so on?
If one form of mental illness, why not another?
People's mental illness doesn't bother me, live and let live/die, just don't demand society participate.

Illness is contagious.

I'm not saying ignore it, cut its public funding.
We shouldn't have to pay for its promotion and their surgery.
Repeal antidiscrimination laws, they deserve protection, but not special protection.
If you assault them it's a crime, but not a 'hate crime', there's no such thing.

Blog or vlog about it, if you have to interact with them, call a spade a a spade, publicly fund treatment centers so they can get some help, but I wouldn't stop anyone over the age of 18 from doing it to themselves or paying a plastic surgeon to do it, unless it reached epidemic proportions.

I think the problem is crap like this is being publicly funded, otherwise I don't think it'd be such a thing, so let's cut that and see what happens.
If it continues to grow exponentially without public funding, because NGOs are funding it, or because it is or has become a natural phenomenon, then dismantle these NGOs and resort to more aggressive forms of intervention.
I'm pretty liberal, there is a time to intervene, but only when necessary, when it becomes an epidemic.

This is a consequence of a ideology and a dogma that was based on a lie.
If you push its "logic" to its conclusion this is what you get.
They are following the "reasoning" underlying the ideology they were infected by.

Genital mutilation is an Afro-Asiatic practice, showing disdain for the human body, and for nature.
In some cases it is a form of ritualized self-castration signaling the individuals purification, idealization, or emasculation before an imagined - abstracted - dominant masculine power that holds dominion and monopolizes maleness.
Biological males become earthly representations of this divine male's essence.

The Christ story is a story of man sacrificing the body to be reborn as pure spirit, pure mind, disembodied consciousness.

Negate....deny....reject...revise history.

Postmoderns despise Rome and Hellas.
They want to erase both from history.
Hmmmmm.... I wonder why?

It's amazing....attacks on Asian are no longer discussed...as if they are no longer occurring.
I remembered because I just heard of one today...

I wonder why they no longer talk ab out white on Asian violence in the US?
Hmmmmmm.... :-k
