Autism In Right Wing Men

I've been stewing on this a long time, and it's getting to the point where I'm going to start trolling. As much as I agree with most of the stuff posted on right wing sites, there are a few things about some of the men that bug me. The biggest thing is the SEXISM. I get that feminism has caused a lot of damage to our culture, -what with no-fault divorce and one parent households- but maybe all the problems of the world shouldn't be blamed solely on women. Maybe it's not 100% the female's fault for why an unhygienic, Asperger-riddled incel neckbeard can't get a date. Some of them sound indistinguishable from radical Muslims. No, women aren't unclean in a religious sense or (this one makes me laugh the most) HYPERSEXUALISED.

Radical Muslims are the biggest hypocrites, btw. The same people who throw gays off roofs will think it's okay to go home and screw a boy chained to a bed, as if that's more morally-sound than two grown, consenting adults with penises choosing to have sexual relations. Women are not hypersexualized and don't need to be saved from themselves. Sex drive is tied to testosterone production. Sure, there might be a few insatiable whores with psychological issues out there, but I'd think that women are ninety nine out of a hundred times more likely to identify as ace-gray-demisexual and be into fanfiction than men. Women make better nuns than men make priests because women are better at being celibate.

Mouse Utopia

Was catching up on a blog I like to read called Anonymous Conservative, author of r/K Theory. Sometimes the best entertainment comes from reading the comment section. Someone posted a couple of articles about Mouse Utopia and how it compares to what has been happening in the west after the industrial revolution.



The short of it was that researchers created a paradise for mice where resources flowed freely, they didn't have to worry about predators, and they could live with absolute ease. At first their population exploded. Natural selection wasn't in play culling the less fit, so they started developing what they called 'spiteful mutations'. Males that were otherwise perfect specimens lost interest in sex and spent all day eating and grooming one another. Females became overly aggressive and either ate their own babies or threw them out of the nest too early. After a little less than two years, none of them were producing offspring, and after four years, every one of them had died off of old age.

The theory of how it affects humanity is that there are now so many people with spiteful mutations that they are pressuring the 'normies' into adopting their ideals, therefore causing a population decline in the west. One of the examples talked about in the first link was: “Spiteful mutations” undermine things like religion, which is little more than a way of promoting evolutionary imperatives. For example: go forth and multiply, cooperative with each other, repel the invader.

I've always wondered about this. When I first started participating in LJ communities in 2005, I was shocked at the amount of liberal vitriol toward certain issues. When the Duggars had their (15th, 16th, 17th?) child, the (mostly white) freetards acted like it was a personal affront to them. Of course, they wouldn't share the same amount of loathing toward welfare queens or Syrian refugees who popped out child after child, but make it a self-sufficient Christian family, and they go nuts.

The same pressure was seen in my own family. When my mom had her six and seventh children in her forties, her siblings with one or two children were whispering behind her back that she had no business having children at her age. The one drug-addled hippie said one of the rare sensible things she has ever said when she told them they really had no say in it. Then my mom's doctor had the nerve to lecture her about using birth control. My mom actually told him it was none of his business because she could afford children, and that did he give the same lecture to Medicaid recipients? My parents are the rare people who used to be atheists but decided to reject the empty, post modernistic bs dominating our society, cutting the cord and spending more time out of doors.

One thing I've always wondered about liberal women that I should ask Anon Conservative next time he posts about rabbity lack of child rearing urges. My mom used to tell me how never once in her childhood would Narcissistic Grandmother tell her she loved her, but she would dote over her little rat-dog like it was a child. What is it with cf people and their love for furbabies? -Like they think babies are gross because they poop in diapers and drool, yet they'll dote over something that will gulp down a pile of its own excrement, then lick their faces. Does it have to do with how much easier animals are to take care of?

UN speech: Trump says 'Rocket Man' Kim Jong Un on 'suicide mission,' in broadside at 'rogue regimes'
President Trump, in his first speech before the United Nations, launched a rhetorical broadside Tuesday at “rogue regimes” including North Korea, Iran and Syria – while pointedly warning Kim Jong Un that the United States will “totally destroy” his country if he does not turn back from the nuclear weapons path.

“The scourge our planet today is a small group of rogue regimes that violate every principle on which the United Nations is based,” Trump told the U.N. General Assembly. “They respect neither their own citizens, nor the sovereign rights of their countries. If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph.”

Using his new nickname for North Korea’s dictator, Trump said: "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime."

Trump said North Korea’s “reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life.”

North Korea conducted its longest-ever test flight of a ballistic missile Friday, sending an intermediate-range weapon hurtling over U.S. ally Japan into the northern Pacific Ocean in a launch that signals both defiance of its rivals and a big technological advance.

“The United States has great strength and patience,” the president told the U.N. “But if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

Trump also singled out Iran, calling it “another reckless regime, one that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing death to America, destruction to Israel and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room.”

The president lambasted the Obama administration’s 2015 Iran nuclear deal, in which Iran agreed to curtail its nuclear weapons program in exchange for the easing of economic sanctions.

“The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one sided transactions the United States has ever entered into,” he said. “Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it, believe me.”

The president called for the de-escalation of the Syrian conflict and a “political solution that honors the will of the Syrian people.”

“The actions of the criminal regime of Bashar al-Assad, including the use of chemical weapons, against his own citizens, even innocent children, shock the conscience of every decent person,” he said.

Addressing Islamic extremism, Trump said the United States has made “big gains” toward the lasting defeat of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

“We will stop radical Islamic terrorism because we cannot allow it to tear up our nation and indeed to tear up the entire world,” Trump said. “We must deny the terrorists safe haven, transit funding and any form of support for the vile and sinister ideology.”

As a candidate, Trump labeled the U.N. as weak and incompetent, and suggested that the body did not act as a friend of either the United States or Israel, but has since softened his tone.

“Just as the founders as this body intended, we must work together and confront together those who threaten us with chaos, turmoil and terror,” he said.

But Trump reiterated his “America first” foreign policy pledge from the presidential campaign during his speech on Tuesday.

“As president of the United States, I will always put America first,” the president said. “Just like you, as the leaders of your countries, will always and should always, put your countries first.”

He added: “The United States will forever be a great friend to the world and especially to its allies. But we can no longer be taken advantage of or enter into a one-sided deal where the United States gets nothing in return.”

Compassion, liberal and conservative

While I was putting my baby to bed, I was thinking about the difference between liberals and conservatives when it comes to that hot button topic: who is compassionate, really?

I think liberals and conservatives honestly define the word differently. For a liberal, compassion is about guilt. You should 'check your privilege' (ie, feel guilty), and act out of acknowledging that. And yet, that makes compassion about you, not the person/people you're supposed to be helping. Your attention is, by the nature of guilt, split between making yourself feel good and actually doing good. (General you, here.) Only by doing good or appealing so some social pressure can you alleviate your guilt, which compromises your actions to help others. Therefore, guilt is useless in helping others.

Yes, I am saying we shouldn't feel bad/guilted for the people we help. It's not necessary. It's not helpful. And frankly, it can be condescending.

In the conservative definition, compassion is defined as action. It is doing the most good in the most effective way possible. It sounds cold. It's not about your feelings. And we certainly do live in the age of feelings! But you can actually do people a wonderful, amazing amount of good by looking at a situation objectively, rather than with guilt, which clouds your judgment into making it about you, and how you feel.

Liberals think, "What feels good? How bad does this make me feel, and what does that say about me?" and conservatives think, "What will work?"

So what is compassion then? I'd say it's love. Love isn't just a feeling, an emotional reaction. Love is choices made and actions done. Think about your relationship with your family and peers. It's love that makes you kind to them, not guilt. Why should anyone else have less?

TL;DR: Compassion is love, not guilt.

Thoughts? Criticisms?

Transgender people in the military

I've seen a lot of argument over this, including a lot of stupid liberal 'gotcha' arguments about transgender people being dangerous in bathrooms but not in war, which only goes to prove liberals have no idea what their opponents' argument was. *rolls eyes*

Anyway, the thing I see least in the outrage over this is the emphasis on the correct thing: the military is not about fairness, equality, or either of those in the presence of disability. The military has one purpose, and one purpose only - to enact war and win it successfully. Anything and anyone that doesn't serve that goal needs to be put by the wayside. This, in my opinion, was the best argument about keeping women out of the military, and is why I believe women should never be in combat. It's a matter of effectiveness.

A transgender person at best is going to be expensive and complicated. What if a trans-man wants to be in combat? What if he's pre-op? What standards does the military judge him by - male or female? Where does he go to the bathroom? Do we have to make special accommodations across the entire military and in military vessels for him? What if he wants 'transition' surgery, which is cosmetic, and cannot serve for a year out of his term? Why should we be paying for that, for when we don't allow others in the military if they have medical problems? Who is transgender - those who have physically changed themselves, or those who are just 'mentally' trans?

At worst, you have a dangerously unstable individual being responsible for his/her life and others. Almost 50% of transgender people have a co-existing mental disorder, and around the same percentage will attempt suicide. Gender disphoria is still, technically, a disorder, it's just that they treat it with mutilation now instead of therapy. Wouldn't that medically disqualify them, logically speaking?

Personally, I think Trump should not have announced this over Twitter, and a lot of the actual policy is unknown at this point. I believe that transgenders currently in the military should probably be allowed to serve out their term and then be kicked out, with benefits. It should be possible for an exception to be made for a transgender person entering the military if said individual had a very, VERY useful skill, like speaking Arabic or building rockets. (As long as they are otherwise mentally stable, as determined by a psychiatrist.) But it should not be the norm.

What do you guys think?

Stupid, liberal 'gotcha' arguments.

They drive me crazy!

The latest is the 'dress like a handmaiden from the Handmaid's Tale' craze, with women in red with white bonnets going to political meetings. So clever! So timely! And yet, it makes no fucking sense. Repealing the ACA is not about rape. Even making abortion illegal is not about rape. No one is actually saying we should make rape or slavery legal. Just like wanting abortion to be illegal does not mean we will criminalize women having their periods, or men masturbating. Do I need to personally explain what an EGG is to all these dumbasses?

I just saw on my facebook feed one of my liberal friends liking a post about someone who put a tiny border around Trump's walk of fame star. Like that's clever somehow? I think Trump might like a border around it considering how many people regularly try to deface the thing. You know ... the way people have fences and locks around their houses FULL of things like they'd like to keep and protect?

I want to scream out to the world, "LIBERALS, YOU ARE NOT BEING CLEVER. Clever requires an actual connection or sensible analogy to be made. STOP IT."

Comey replacements: First four candidates to begin interviews to head FBI

The four candidates meeting with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein are:

Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher, who used to work in the Justice Department's Criminal Divsion; the acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who recently testified before Congress about the agency's Russia collusion investigation; Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the current Senate Majority Whip and former attorney general of Texas who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee; Judge Michael J. Garcia of the New York Court of Appeals, who previously served as Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York.

The administration is considering nearly a dozen candidates -- a list that includes top current and former lawmakers as well as law enforcement figures -- to replace fired FBI Director James Comey, a White House official briefed on the matter told Fox News on Friday.

The roster of contenders is extensive, including some names already reported such as former Rep. Mike Rogers and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly as well as lesser-known law enforcement officials.

The list also includes several lawmakers on key law enforcement oversight panels. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., led the congressional probe into Benghazi; Rogers is an ex-Michigan congressman who led the House Intelligence Committee and served as an FBI agent.

Others being considered to fill Comey’s job are seasoned DOJ professionals. Thompson was deputy attorney general for President George W. Bush. John Suthers, now mayor of Colorado Springs, was a federal prosecutor, as was Mike Garcia. Garcia was appointed by Bush as a U.S. attorney and now serves as an associate judge on the New York Court of Appeals.

Those on the list with FBI-specific experience include Rogers and Paul Abbate, now assistant director in charge of the FBI.

The White House official told Fox News that the candidate list is fluid, and names could be added or removed as the process moves forward.

Comey firing: Trump team refutes explosive media claims
Trump administration officials have flatly denied two key allegations surrounding the James Comey firing – that the decision came after he asked for more resources for the FBI’s Russia probe, and that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein later threatened to resign – after the claims gained traction among Trump critics.
