Don’t Know Much Biology

When Dr. Bhavik Kumar of Planned Parenthood testified before a Congressional committee, he was asked if men could become pregnant and give birth. He replied, “Men can have pregnancies, especially trans men.”

OK, if a women pretending to be a man (a “trans man”) were fertile, she could become pregnant. However, Kumar’s use of the qualifier especially implies that there are other “men” who could become pregnant in addition to those with XX chromosomes.

Martha’s Vineyard and Illegal Immigrants

Based on population, Martha’s Vineyard fair share of the illegal immigrants who have entered the United States since Joe Xiden was inaugurated would only be about 100 or so. However, given the amount of wealth held by the various property owners, several thousand might be an equitable share based on economic resources.

An online survey conducted by WPA Intelligence last month found 22% of Democrats agreed with the statement, “Some men can get pregnant.” 36% of white, college-educated female Democrats concurred.

Perhaps the fertility problems some “men” are having may be one of the sources of dissatisfaction some social and behavioral “science” graduates (especially, gender studies majors) feel about their degrees.Democracy Dies in Derpness™

No, Joe, They Won’t Need F-15s

Once again, Joe Xiden has threatened to use the regular forces of the U.S. military against citizens who might actively resist one or more of his unconstitutional or illegal acts. Speaking in Pennsylvania today, he called for a federal ban on so-called “assault weapons.” Of course, the Supreme Court has just reversed and remanded the appeals court decision upholding Maryland’s “assault weapons” ban, but that hasn’t dulled Xiden’s lust for unconstitutional federal legislation.

Xiden also said—

You can’t go out and buy an automatic weapon, you can’t go out and buy a cannon, and for those brave right wing Americans who say its all about keeping America independent and safe, if you want to fight against the country you need an F-15. You need something a little more than a gun.

There are so many false statements there. You can go out and buy and automatic weapon. It has to be one that’s in the current registry of such weapons (over 150,000 such weapons are registered), you have to pass a background check, and you have to pay for a $200 tax stamp, but you can buy one. It’s also legal to buy a cannon. The process is similar to buying a machine gun.

IIRC, the last time veteran’s took up arms against a government, it was a local government, and the trigger for that action was a stolen election. You can read about The Battle of Athens here.

And finally, Xiden might want to think about how ragtag group of peasants with small arms handled modern armies and air forces in Afghanistan during the last four decades.

Bullies

Fuzzy Slippers has a post over at Legal Insurrection headlined Trans Activists Shout Down 80-year-old Woman Who Spoke Out Against Biological Male In Women’s Changing Room. “Julie Jaman was banned from Port Townsend’s Mountain View Pool after complaining about a biological male ogling young girls in the changing room. Jaman was showering when she saw the man staring at little girls undressing. She said that she felt her and the children’s safety was threatened. When she later tried to give a speech about the incident, she was heckled. Trans activists ripped down the suffragette flags behind her and tried to sabotage her microphone.

I’m so old I remember when men who picked on women were considered bullies, and it may be that incidents such as this are beginning to remind others. The appearance of the #LGBDropTheT could be a sign that a sufficiently broad swath of the public have had enough and that women will have their safe space protected again.

One can hope.

Don’t Know Much Biology—Or English Vocabulary

Politico has a story up headlined Data brokers resist pressure to stop collecting info on pregnant people.

Perhaps someone should remind (or inform) the staff at Politico that only sexually mature human beings with XX chromosomes have the bodily organs required to gestate a baby, i.e., to be pregnant. In the English language such humans are called “women.”

But I Was Informed DC Was A Sanctuary City

The Hill reports DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has asked for the National Guard to be activated to help manage an influx of illegal aliens into the city. Bowser has sent a letter to the White House which says in part:

Our ability to assist people in need at this scale is very limited. Instead of rolling up their sleeves and working with the Biden/Harris Administration on a real solution, Governors Abbot and Ducey have decided to use desperate people to score political points. … With pledges from Texas and Arizona to continue these abhorrent operations indefinitely, the situation is dire, and we consider this a humanitarian crisis—one that could overwhelm our social support network without immediate and sustained federal intervention.

How do things which cannot go on come to an end?

Slowly. And then suddenly.

Sauces, Geese, and Ganders

This appeared on the Twitterz from a group that thinks that’s is OK for a private company to refuse to carry someone else’s disinformation but not theirs—BTW, over-the-air broadcasters who have a license to use the public radio spectrum do have certain requirements to accept political advertising as a condition of their licenses. However, Hulu is an unlicensed entity using the Internet and has no such legal obligation.

Not Everything Is About Your Sexual Orientation …

… but that hasn’t stopped outlets such as MSN from publishing this sort of thing.

NASA has shared the James Webb Space Telescope’s (JWST) first high-resolution images of deep space, including some galaxies pictured 13 billion years ago—not long after the Big Bang. But despite this remarkable achievement for science, the JWST continues to stand as a bitter reminder of our country’s willingness to tolerate and even memorialize queerphobia.

The JWST first came under controversy last year when it came to light that its namesake, James Webb, oversaw the Lavender Scare during his tenure as NASA’s second administrator. The Lavender Scare was a McCarthy-era moral panic in which suspected queer employees were exposed and purged from government positions.

Regardless of your vanity, this song really isn’t about you.
