    These lunatic perversions are not as accepted, as we've been lead to believe... At least not according my 26 year old, Infantry Officer son & his buddies in the Army.

    Probably not as many with an agenda would put it ... but based on what I observe, it isn't as stigmatized as it would have been when I first entered the military 28 years ago; my point being ... we are all 'around' the same age ... what we in our teens / young 20s would have scoffed at, most of the young service members don't. It happens.

    Something I noticed when I transitioned from regular infantry to Recon / Special Operations etc. was a lot less talk & concern (BS) over the color of someones skin, where or if they went to church, if they were male or female, who they slept with etc. ... most important was if they could do the job. Professionals can recognize that they may have a personal bias, but that isn't the job ... and set it aside to get things done.

    The son of the man who refers to them as "lunatic perversions" doesn't accept them? Wow, you don't say! I wonder why that is? lol

    And imo that is down somewhat, to the indoctrination they get at schooling, from K to college, to 'be accepting or be a bigot'..

    A politically incorrect cartoon...

    As Libertarians, we seek a world of liberty; a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values for the benefit of others

    I would agree that allowing genetic males who have transitioned / are transition to a female Stu’s compete athletically against genetic females presents an unfair situation.

    I've seen similar stories, where girls at schools, complained about having to compete against guys who 'claimed to be women', and were beating them. AND they were told to shut up/stop whining, or get kicked off the squad..!

    I'm not sure how this issue will ultimately pan out, as it runs in the very face of 'equality' and will only create more resentment from the parents and kids who've worked so hard for so long to be competitive, only to have all training efforts negated when they're told to either compete against a biological male, or drop out of the sport altogether. To complain about it is to be labeled a "bigot," because otherwise the transgender 'equality' proponents will be forced to admit that a transgender female is, well, not really a female.
