Raw Thoughts 4-21-23
I hope Chris Webby hasn’t trademarked the title. I want to write on Substack more and Twitter less. But sometimes the formalities of doing a “piece” here push me away. I even have like 4 or 5 open and half-written or all ‘written’, but they just don’t look good enough to me. Lol I’ve been drawn to audio more lately than writing, even though I still push out way too much text on the Bird. So along the lines of “Unscripted” I’m doing on the audio side here, I’ll use Raw Thoughts to just share things on the mind without worrying about making it look nice.
I was intrigued to see my gender thread get such activity today. Known names across the pond were even boosting it. And damn near everyone who read it had the same reaction. Because it presents so clearly. I can’t imagine you’d find 1 person in any cross-section of 1,000 who think a man should be standing on a female championship podium. It defies not just logic but everything. And the commentary I sound around that today was furious! Cuts across all demos too. It’s bizarre (and very Truman Show) that opposition to this is painted as right-wing, or conservatives, or GOP. Again, not 1/1000. I truly think this is what’s going to sink the left, the Democratic party in America as we know it. I wrote a thread about that in February… of 2021. It was obvious back then, and Team Biden signaled it hard back then. Remember, BLM mania quickly turned to LBGTQ+ mania. “Black Trans Lives Matter!” Biden promised his first day in office that he’d move on LGBTQ+ rights. Referenced adding it to the Equality Act. There weren’t any such moves on the BLM front. The black community got emotionally abused and scammed. By our media and politicians. It’s horrific, really. But the signaling could not have been any clearer. Because, see, it’s not really about gender. It’s not about LGBTQ+ either. It’s much bigger than that and those are just cogs. There is a high-level design to what this apparatus is doing. It’s not hard to see once you know what to look for.
But the tensions here are just profound! What’s fueling the rabid left right now is abortion. “GOP’s War Against Women!” But what staggering imagery my thread is in contrast to that. It’s tension so heavy it has to snap. What is a “War Against Women”? The man in Canada who claimed womanface at a women’s shelter (without even trying to look it) and was allowed in then sexually assaulted a real woman? Is it letting men come in female spaces and boys in girls spaces, penises instead of privacy, and calling it righteous? Titles and awards and Woman Of The Years and “First Women To…”s and podiums handed to men as women clap for them in second? No longer even having ownership of the word “woman”; no, it’s “person with a uterus” or “person who bleeds”. Ask your doctor, they might say the same. Or is it only abortion? Are women’s rights only important when they’re terminating their own babies? And I don’t mean to put someone ardently pro-choice in that tough spot, but you’re already in that tough spot! Turning away from it doesn’t change reality. I’m not here to tell people what to do with their lives or how to vote. But if I had to call either side having a “War Against Women”, it’s not those fighting against this wicked ideology that is literally erasing them.
And back to politics, I don’t see how this doesn’t eventually consume all. I’m surprised it hasn’t already. Team Biden is codifying this into federal law. Men will soon be able to claim protections under Title IX at will. Literally, at will. “I am a woman today!”, and then can make a mockery of it like that Dylan asshole, and we are now going to grant them the same protections women fought decades for. This law made it so women had fair competition; so that sports on campus weren’t dominated by men. Now the very same law is going to empower men to dominate those same sports. It’s hard to wrap your mind around. It’s The Twilight Zone. But it’s now our real-world. Twitter IS real-life! I don’t see how they can straddle these pools. I’ve pointed out how they do daily, how the media assists and makes it work, how dirty tricks are run by dirty people like Laura Kelly. But inevitably it has to crash. And that action around my thread today showed the lava that is brewing on this issue. I think if we weren’t all forced under this Truman Show façade, that gender theory/the advancing and codification of transactivism would be over. It would have failed. Hell, we don’t get here in the first place, but that’s another story. And yet, having said that all, the engines are revving back up again. Abortion will be emotionally cranked to the max (and I recognize there is genuine emotion there, that this isn’t a front of fabricated Truman Show mania like so many others), combined with all the maniacal stuff like racism which they cranked massively this week, fascism, MAGA and election denial, Trump and January 6 charges, Stormy charges, end of democracy, trans genocide, my goodness it is a toxic smorgasbord! Can all of that come together in crazy 2020-style and prevent a red wave again? I wouldn’t bet against it.
But I’ll leave you with this blunt line, because I like blunt. If the American people and especially women elevate the ability to terminate babies over all of that above, I will view it as a sign of a very sick society. If D+37 is able to storm through another conservative values-based backlash, I will be deeply concerned for this country.

This is that thread, by the way…
