'This stuff makes my head hurt'
In the world of the politically correct, where Associated Press news-style gurus say a man who calls himself a woman is a woman and woman who calls herself a man is a man, it’s easy to see how mistakes could happen.
As AP found this week when it had to delete a tweet promoting a gender story because it misgendered a transgender.
“We’ve deleted a Wednesday tweet about two transgender city council members elected in Minneapolis because it misidentified one of them as a woman. A replacement tweet is upcoming,” the wire service said.

So was a man mistakenly identified as a woman?
Or a woman who thinks she’s a man “misidentified” as a woman?
“There wouldn’t be so much danger of misgendering people if their stories weren’t blown up nationally just because of their gender,” commented a blogger on the Twitter news aggregator Twitchy.
“Take for example the Associated Press, which was anxious to promote a story on Minneapolis electing two black transgender city council members Tuesday.”
The report continued, “The thing is, the AP can’t explain why what it wrote initially is incorrect without breaking more of its own rules.”
The sarcasm bloomed like a rose under the summer sun:
“Didn’t they just commit a crime according to California state law.”
“Will AP be going to jail in California then?”

It is getting real silly.
“AP cant explain why what it wrote initially is incorrect without breaking more of its own rules.”
Didnt they just commit a crime according to California state law.
Will AP be going to jail in California then?
Misgendering = Twilight Zone word.
The elevation of the mentally deranged clearly demonstrates the unmatched power of enemy #1, the old media. Forget about the demrats, the RINOs, and the Islamic swine, they pale in comparison to the power of the old media.
I've been saying this for years and it just gets more and more accurate.
They try to be so serious. LOL
Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls.
It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world.
Doesn’t even the word transgender define a person. It is not neutral in its meaning. Find us a world where boys can be boys and girls can be girls.
The poster admitted it was a movie prop.
Save for the weight throwing off the balance, I could have used it in Doom3 to save on weapon changes.
A friend of mine told me when that song came out her father, not knowing what it meant, liked the song. So she explained to him what the song was about.
His answer: “Oh, you kids today see messages in everything”. He did not believe her.
We laughed so hard over that one.
Too bad it wasnt the era of karaoke or you could have gotten him on stage to perform it! Whyre all these sissy boys wanting my number? :-p
In old days, it was cowboys and indians: ‘Now the Indians are dressing up like cowboys and the cowboys are putting leather and turquoise on”.
Good ones there. Don’t underestimate the influence of this enemy. They are going to defeat Trump’s agenda by dividing his support.
Detachable blame thrower.
