    I'll admit that this is what worries me...the quality of people that we're electing. AOC and her psychotic ilk and then the Marjorie Taylor Greenes and the other whacky conspiracy theorists. The left may be playing a long game (although I think that's giving them too much credit), but don't take your eyes off of the other side either.

    Can't afford to just say "it's not a big deal"

    It is to the Left.
    When the people shining a light on it are louder than the actual people who are pushing for it and 95% of the country doesn’t give a shit.

    It proves it’s really a non-issue.

    There is no “war” on the word Mother.
    There is no “war” on Christmas.

    No matter how much idiots on both sides want there to be.

    A Congresswoman actually believing that Jewish space lasers cause forest fires is simply more dangerous than a politician who believes the word Mother is exclusionary.

At least not in my experiences. Same with the pronouns...eh, whatever "they" want to do. From now on I'll just say "person" and "hey you." Aunt Jemimah? Haven't even noticed. Is it still syrup? Fine.

    Those who want to notice, will notice.

    Those who go about their lives won’t.

    Sometimes I just want good syrup for my fucking pancakes. I don’t give a tuppenny fuck who or what is on the bottle.

    Aunt Jemima. Uncle Clarance. Bill Walton. Her/He. They.

    Just give me the fucking syrup.

    Yeah you would hope but (and I know you don't believe in slippery slopes) but think of the culture war just maybe 5 years ago. It was gay rights, marriage, etc. That was the dominant conversation then the whole Target would have unisex bathrooms or ones that trans would go into. Sparked a conversation and from that to now we have 20000 pronouns, giving kids hormonal treatment, have women competing against biological men in sports, etc.

    So the discussion point shifted about 50 points to the left. Gay Marriage is as taboo as lets say women working in the workforce or wearing jeans. Its like watching Leave it to Beaver and comparing it to Sunny in Philadelphia.

    Plus it doesn't matter if a subset believes in it. They have power and intimidate. Look at cancel culture and tell me who is winning it. Who has the momentum? Who can influence peoples careers or end them? Big tech is on its side. The dominant party in power is on its side and its only getting worse. When you own media, you can influence the masses even with a minority of people who are in lock step with your beliefs.

    I do think the woke are not as numerous as one thinks but they have the power. They have Big Tech.

    How can anybody deny anything you just said? Gay marriage seems tame in comparison to now.

    If that wasn't a slippery slope then I don't what is or is it "progress"?

    Big tech. The media. Washington.

    Not even a level playing field.

    But what are the major policies that have changed. Not the cancel culture thing, what material thing is changing that impacts your life? The gay marriage thing is a good prior example. So many made it sound like it would be the end of the world. Was it?

    Does it have to impact one's personal life?

    Can I not love my country or hate to see the road it's going down? Doing drugs is bad for ones health. It leads to bad shit. This bullshit that's going on today is bad for the country's health imo.

    Ok Mr Pedantic. You do this quite often btw. I think gay marriage is immoral.

    It's bad for the health of a country and what should be the ideal. Man and woman.

    Is that better? Does every example one uses have to correlate to the topic at hand? Is that OK Mike?

    I wasn't being pedantic. I didn't know you thought that gay marriage was immoral and that you compared it to drug use hence my confusion to your post. I don't think we've ever discussed the topic.

    I could see now what happened here.

    I only said that gay marriage was tame in comparison. That wasn't on my mind when I said "Does it have to affect one's personal life"?

    It was more the transgendered bathroom stuff and wokeness etc. I really wasn't thinking about gay marriage.

    But since thats what you brought up then yeah. I think from a religious standpoint which I consider myself somewhat...I think it's bad but I can't do anything about it.

    I don't care who you are... I'm here to pee so get out of my way with your choices. I gotta pee behind the door with a dick on it. If there is no line for the vagina room... I might pee there too & put the seat down after.
