Apple’s Tim Cook signaled his virtue in a tweet: “We are indebted to all who serve. Discrimination against anyone holds everyone back. #LetThemServe”.
The debt is real, but the rest if false. Discrimination does not hold “everyone back.” It only holds back the person discriminated against. Indeed, “holding back” is a definition of discrimination.
Discrimination is a good. People used to know this. They have been made to forget it.
When I served in the early 1980s, men who could not pass the fitness test were discriminated against and not allowed to join. Marginal men who made it later washed out for various reasons, some physical, some mental. These too were discriminated against. And thank God for that.
Even back then, the mandatory “Diversity” quotas driven by Equality were coming into being. The military cheated for the women. And then lied about the cheating. Persons entering the service had to do so many push-ups. I can’t recall the number; it wasn’t large. Unless you were fat, sick, or grossly out of shape, you could do them.
The men had to do push-ups the normal way. The women were allowed to do them from their knees. These non-push-ups were called push-ups because, as is obvious, otherwise the number of women passing would be too small to meet the quotas.
This cheating happened. It happened routinely. It never stopped happening. It happens today. Women are nowhere near as physically capable as men. The performance margin is not small. It requires no sophisticated statistical tools to see. It is common knowledge, and used to be encapsulated in the homey phrase “the weaker sex.”
Because they are the weaker sex, and because quotas must be met, standards must be weakened. Thus, standards are weakened. And when they are weakened, those deluded by Equality but still retaining some notion of Reality, people who are thus at least vaguely aware that a non-push-up is not a push-up, say the standards were not needed or were too harsh. Or they lie. And require others to lie, too.
To meet modern-day quotas, recruiters lie to women about “disproportionate health risks“.
(This happens everywhere Equality insinuates itself, not just in matters physical and not just in the military.)
Well, that’s women. What about trannies? These are largely men who pretend or who actually believe they are women, and to a lesser extent it is women who pretend or who actually believe they are men. Psychiatrists say these folks suffer from “gender dysphoria”, which is only a label, after all, for a certain mental illness. And another name for mental illness is insanity.
So trannies are insane. Perhaps it is a mild insanity, or perhaps it is more devastating, but it is not sanity. You do not want to arm the insane. You do not want to be in a fight next to a man who is trying to fix his lipstick and who calls himself Sue.
Johnny Cash’s Boy Named Sue knew he was a man, and the men who fought Sue knew Sue was a man. “This world is rough, and if a man’s gonna make it he’s gotta be tough.” A man who thinks he really is a Sue is not going to be tough.
Cash’s Sue knew the label did not make a woman. He never slipped on a skirt and begged some quack with a knife, “Cut me!” And Sue never insisted the United States Army give him a lifetime supply of expensive drugs to alter his mental state and weaken his body.
The insane ought to and must be discriminated against. They must also be helped. And help does not mean encouraging them to indulge in their insane fantasies. If we would have allowed trannies to serve, the same weakening of standards as happened with women would have occurred, only more so, because trannies are unsound in body and in mind.
An idiotic statement. Are we to have brigades of infants armed with explosive pacifiers? Or should we discriminate against babies? Or should we give the keys of the M1 Abrams tank to a group of men who think they are infants and who wear diapers? These men exist.
By Zuckerberg’s logic, we shouldn’t discriminate against them. Jack Dorsey of Twitter agrees. He signaled his virtue, “Discrimination in any form is wrong for all of us #LetThemServe”. This was from a man (who as far as I know isn’t yet pretending to be a woman) who on his platform routinely discriminates by banning and shadow banning non-leftists.
What this culture needs is more discrimination, not less.
Addendum After writing the main article, I saw Drudge, which linked to “Transgender Navy SEAL slams Trump for banning servicemembers: ‘Let’s meet face to face and you tell me I’m not worthy’“.
Trump is probably busy, so I’ll tell him. Brother Beck, you’re not up to the job.
Beck is a retired Navy SEAL who won various medals, and God bless him for it, during which “[he] kept [his] gender identity a secret”. Meaning, he was a man acting and fighting as a man.
After retiring, he became insane, or at least became outwardly insane. Now I have no information on the status of his pertinents or what drugs he may be taking, but even assuming the only manifestations of his insanity are long hair and lipstick (as per the newspaper photo), and thus allowing he still may be in terrific physical shape, his mind has clearly blown a gasket.
He is not worthy to fight under these conditions. We don’t need men who think they are women engaging in hand-to-hand combat worrying if they have a tear in their nylons. Even stronger, we don’t need the men fighting beside the insane worrying if the insane are worried about tears in their nylons.
Beck, who became a voice for transgender servicemembers to several media outlets Wednesday, added that [he] does not approve of the flippant way that Trump announced his decision on social media.
“There are a hundred different ways to make an announcement that are better than a tweet. It blindsided millions of people. It’s disrespectful,” [he] told CNN.
I don’t know the status of his “transition”, but at least he has sounding like a (social justice) woman down pat.
