June is a sort of holiday season for me in my creating of rage-rants against all things woke. In June...LGB TQ Pride Month...the most bizarre examples of woke thinking are encouraged to slither out from under their rocks with the promise that they'll be taken seriously.


In our house, we watch almost no TV and very little TV entertainment...and no TV entertainment from American sources. For both of us, the best entertainment TV has to offer in New Zealand's, THE BROKENWOOD MYSTERIES, which is, very roughly, MURDER, SHE WROTE. Lots of murder in a town of about 3,000 people.

The woke agenda has moved more slowly among kiwis than Americans. The people of New Zealand still give themselves permission to laugh. BROKENWOOD laughs at issues absolutely verboten here. How, as po'd say, EFFIN refreshing...although po don't laugh.

Our favorite episode of BROKENWOOD deals with former patients of, well, an insane asylum, all of whom are still bonkers. Can you imagine!!!!? One character thinks his late wife's soul resides in a horse, another carries a screwdriver with him because he's obsessed with dismantling anything he can and,...

...another thinks she's a mouse.

There's a line in the episode where the head cop notes, "they say species dysphoria is a real thing."

Species dysphoria is a real thing, exactly like gender dysphoria is real.

Check the video. I promise to 86 the Piers Morgan stuff but during Pride Month, he's relevant.

One reality of Pride Month 023 is that the most essential claims of the transgender crowd...and the demands...are being examined...no longer accepted without rational analysis by all the heads of pb's three-headed monster that is destroying the woke trans political agenda and trans ideology:

1. Old-school Title IX feminists.
2. Anti-TQ LGB groups and activists. And,
3. po's "fascistic and disgusting" "MAGA Republican" "Christian theocrats" i.e., the mommies and daddies and nannas and pappaps who merely want to raise their kids without government intrusion.

It's a truth that when people accept the thinking and the demands related to dysphoria they open themselves up to absurdity...as this video makes plain, with real life examples.


Donna has been saying that there's nothing new going on with Pride Month this year, but I think Donna's in pretty serious denial. In the US, we know that state legislatures are considering, heck passing!, bills designed to protect children and families and the entire female sex from excesses that trans and queer people want to inflict on them. And, in British media, more and more, the dysphoria gospel is being critiqued...and made to be the butt of jokes.

How far into the future can it be that, in the US, those "fascistic and disgusting" "MAGA Republican" "Christian theocrats" will be laughing, too?

Still, people don't despise or laugh at trans people. It's the woke thinking,...the trans political agenda and trans ideology that's the issue.

Gender dysphoria ain't a choice. Woke thinking, though, absolutely is.

    woke [ wohk ]

    verb

    1. a simple past tense of wake.

    adjective


    2. having or marked by an active awareness of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the treatment of ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities:
    In light of incidents of police brutality, it’s important to stay woke.
    He took one African American history class and now he thinks he’s woke.
    This generation of kids is trying to make woke choices in life.


    3. Disparaging. of or relating to a liberal progressive orthodoxy, especially promoting inclusive policies or ideologies that welcome or embrace ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities.

    Slang. aware of the facts, true situation, etc. (sometimes used facetiously):
    The moon landing was staged. Stay woke!



    "Gender dysphoria ain't a choice. Woke thinking, though, absolutely is." -Hate

    Well for once in your life, you are actually correct, Bill! Congratulations! It is absolutely a choice one must make to be "woke" or not. Quite unlike gender dysphoria.


    But the real choice, the important choice here is whether one wants to see "woke" as a good thing or a bad thing.

    That is the actual choice you are talking about, Bill. You want everyone to think it's a bad thing.


    To you, being aware "of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the treatment of ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities" is a bad thing. A very very bad thing. That's pretty much how bigots like you react to anything regarding race or ethnicity. You want to remain asleep to the injustices that have been and are being perpetrated upon minorities in this country. You do not want to have to be conscious "of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the treatment of ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities" in this country. Like HELL you'll be!

    To you, even people simply being aware of the institutional injustices foisted upon minorities in this country for many decades is a very bad thing. In fact, others being aware of or expressing racial anything anymore is enough to pull a knee-jerk, rage-inducing hair trigger for you bigots. That's how far overboard you've gone with it. You just want everyone to remain asleep to all the injustice so you can ease your conscience to what you are allowing to go on and what went on in the past. You want others to even ignore their own ethnicity and just shut the hell up about it because it's a blaring reminder to you racist bigots of all the injustices that the White Conservatives have imposed on ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities in our history and presently. I'll warrant that you are even seething with panic and reflexive rage right now just from me bringing it all to your attention.

    Because you don't really want it to stop.

    You are perfectly content with the racial injustice and inequality in this country. Heck, it doesn't affect you at all so what's the big deal? But geez, if all these minorities get the same treatment under the law as you do, why then your rights become less special to you. Less meaningful. Even less sacred. And you can't have that! You simple-minded bigots used the same stupid logic to fight against same sex marriage.

    Racist white bigots lacking anything resembling basic human empathy like you, Bill, absolutely despise being reminded of the racial and minority injustices being done to others. It's something you want to ignore. To deny. To downplay. To gas light. To erase from history even if you can pull it off.

    And it's a reality that you bigots believe our precious young white minds must be protected from even knowing about at all costs! You don't want them learning from the mistakes of the past, because you want those mistakes to continue on their merry way well into the future. You want children to be as clueless and racist and bigoted as their clueless, racist, and bigoted parents are. You want nothing to change. You conservatives never want anything to change.

    Staying asleep and easing your consciences is a full time job for you bigots in this country nowadays. So naturally, you are cranky as hell right about now. You've already got your fingers stuffed into your ears as far as they will go, but you can still hear and see the guilt-inducing "wokeness" happening all around you. OH MY GOD... IT'S EVEN ON YOUR BEER CAN!!!!! AAAAAHHH!!!!!!! GET IT AWAY!!! GET IT AWAY...!!!


    So yes, Bill. You have made the choice to fight against anything "relating to a liberal progressive orthodoxy, especially promoting inclusive policies or ideologies that welcome or embrace ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities". You have made the choice to be as anti-woke as possible. You have chosen to attack anything you are told by right wing, racist propagandists to attack by labeling it as "woke". You throw the word around now like it can pertain to anything anyone to the left of you ever does that you want to disparage. Because the whole "woke" movement in our society today is nothing but an alarm clock going off right in your face reminding you of what you so dearly want to stay asleep about. You have made the choice to stay asleep and all our "woke" fuss is keeping you awake. You keep trying to hit the snooze button, but the buzzer just keeps on buzzing.

    You have chosen to see any "active awareness of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the treatment of ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities" as the most abominable thing in America right now.

    While I and others in their respective minority communities have made the choice "to have an active awareness of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the treatment of ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities" in America today. So you'll have to excuse me if I don't join you in the cultural lobotomy that the right is trying to foist on this country

    No one on our side intends to ever go back to sleep.



    Anyway, again, I want to congratulate you on this rare occasion that you actually got something right, Bill. Great work!

    Jesus of Nazareth was very woke for his time.

    The thing is, wokeness is always controversial and requires years, decades, or even millenia to become fully accepted by most.


  3. by HatetheSwamp on June 28, 2023 10:11 am

    3. Disparaging. of or relating to a liberal progressive orthodoxy, especially promoting inclusive policies or ideologies that welcome or embrace ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities.

    That's a defensive acknowledgment, by a wokester, that there are many of us who have appropriated your adjective, used to vaunt yourselves, and turned it against you. Baha baha!

    It, very simply, refers to progressive sanctimonious political correctness on EFFIN steroids.

    As I posted previously, the Ron DeSantis speech at the Faith and Freedom Coalition meeting gives a good, comprehensive working definition of how we use the word. See link.

    Donna,

    Jesus of Nazareth was very woke for his time.

    You mean when He physically ejected people from the temple?


  5. by Donna on June 28, 2023 10:36 am

    I mean about his entire ministry.


  6. by HatetheSwamp on June 28, 2023 11:05 am

    During all my years as a minister in institutionalized Christianity, I was amazed, and disturbed, by the incredible number of people who'd concluded: Jesus was just like me...as you are doing.

    My guess? Jesus was much more than woke.

    People who congratulate themselves because, like them, Jesus was liberal, or conservative, or woke, or Democrat or GOP are all, as far as I can tell, all wrong. But, all of them, I believe, are very very wrong.


  7. by Indy! on June 28, 2023 11:13 am

    Peebs...

    1. You are obsessed with something that (imho) probably affects your actual life in ZERO ways... not at all.

    2. Only wingnutty legislatures are passing laws against whatever it is you're railing about here.


  8. by HatetheSwamp on June 28, 2023 11:31 am

    pb is also HatewhatsWoke. It's his schtick. No doubt. I think that what's woke does affect us all.

    Those "wingnutty" legislators are doing what they're supposed to do in a republic, i.e., representing the people who elected them.

    It's seemed obvious to me, in the past, that po and isle HATE living in a constitutional representative republic. I've never picked that up from you, though.

    "Of the people, by the people and for the people," eh?

    -Hate

    Actually, that was just part of the dictionary definition of the word. You are certainly welcome to your own opinion, Bill. You and all the other sociopathic conservative bigots are free to make up whatever definition that suits your purposes. It's not like anyone could stop you.

    But that doesn't mean that what you want it to mean is actually what it means. It still truly means what those who originally coined the term intended it to mean. You'll have to be satisfied by the fact that anything even close to your propagandist interpretation of the word is even included in the dictionary definition at all. But unfortunately for you and all the other racist bigots in this country, it's always going to mean what the prime definition of it is.

    And of course you appropriated it. That's the automatic, main line defense of the bigoted, racist right wing. Attack any movement or anything you don't like or what you ludicrously think threatens your existential existence by trying to make it into something that it isn't. You take something good and wholesome that you don't like and you demonize it by trying to turn it into a disparaging thing with endless baseless lies and putrid propaganda. You strive to mendaciously attach things to it that have nothing at all to do with what it was intended to mean or be about. You try to poison whatever makes you feel uncomfortable when your bigoted racism is shoved in your face.

    Bill, as you are a racist bigot, it's absolutely understandable why the very idea of choosing to be "aware of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the treatment of ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities" in this country would set your hair on fire. It's something that you and other bigoted racists have no intention of ever being intentionally aware of. Being "woke", as it was intended to mean, is the last thing you would ever allow yourself to be. Everyone gets that. Racists gotta be racists. Bigots are gonna bigot.

    I am perfectly happy to be woke as it is described in the dictionary. The "woke" I am operating under has nothing whatsoever to do with the insane, pig-ignorant, fictional bullshit that you assholes pulled directly out of your collective asses and are trying to smear the term with. It has everything to do with what it was intended to mean and be about.

    So 🖕.



  10. by HatetheSwamp on June 28, 2023 11:58 am

    Actually, that was just part of the dictionary definition of the word.

    There you go with your dictionaries again. It seems as if all you woke limousine lib progressives are subservient to your dictionaries in a way that'd put fundamentalist Bible-thumpers to shame.

    "When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

    ’The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

    ’The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all."
    -Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

    What makes you all so anal about dictionary definitions? You'd guess that self-proclaimed freethinkers such as yourself wouldn't be so rigid...but, obviously, not.

    I am perfectly happy to be woke as it is described in the dictionary.

    pb's content to be moderately anti-woke as it is effin LIVED by Ron DeSantis and his crew, including the anti-TQ LGB GAG gang et.al..


  11. by Ponderer on June 28, 2023 12:57 pm

    "What makes you all so anal about dictionary definitions?" -Hate


    Well, maybe because if we don't have an established, learned source for what words mean to the vast majority of the linguistic population, flaming asshole propagandists like you can turn words into meaning whatever you want them to mean.

    And boy howdy, woke is a dang good example of what you always try to do in that regard.



  12. by HatetheSwamp on June 28, 2023 1:05 pm

    po,

    Over the years of my long life, I've had to learn to read four languages besides my own. I know this: Words mean what the people who use them determine them to mean. Dictionaries are artificial. They are an attempt to determine how people use words. You have this bass-ackward. Humpty Dumpty is bang on right.

    You progressive limousine lib wokesters use that word to congratulate yourselves for being evolved, enlightened...just, well, better than people who think differently than you do...which you ain't.

    We? We used to make light of your delusions of superiority.

    Watch the effin DeSantis speech.


  13. by Indy! on June 28, 2023 1:07 pm
    The LIttle Mermaid thing is the perfect example of that. Wingdings pretending like they're offended that Disney changed the fictional race of a fictional cartoon character of a fictional creature. 🙄


  14. by Ponderer on June 28, 2023 1:42 pm

    Thank you, Indy!. They've been nitpicking at and then blowing into an attack on our country any little mass media expression of social awareness that doesn't involve them for ages now. Buncha whining crybabies. They can't always have everything their way, so someone else must suffer for it.



  15. by Donna on June 28, 2023 2:36 pm

    "During all my years as a minister in institutionalized Christianity, I was amazed, and disturbed, by the incredible number of people who'd concluded: Jesus was just like me...as you are doing." - Hts

    I know lots of people who are what you would call "woke", but none of them are "just like me".


  16. by Indy! on June 28, 2023 4:50 pm

    You're welcome, Pondy.

    Notice how the GOP is not snowflaking on the fact the fictional race of another famous fictional character was also changed?

    .


  17. by Donna on June 28, 2023 4:53 pm

    I'm watching Pride Night at Camden Yards now. Orioles vs Reds. Big rainbow flag on the outfield grass. Rainbows everywhere. They were even passing out little rainbow flags as people entered. No rainbows on the players' uniforms, though. Right now in the broadcasting booth they're talking to the only openly gay member of the Maryland legiskature. Nice discussion.


  18. by Indy! on June 28, 2023 5:03 pm

    When DeSantis is president he'll be putting an end to that. 🤨


  19. by HatetheSwamp on June 28, 2023 5:09 pm

    I know lots of people who are what you would call "woke", but none of them are "just like me"

    Except for Jesus, of course.


  20. by Ponderer on June 28, 2023 5:25 pm

    Who in Blazes ever said anything about us thinking we were like Jesus...?

    My God, Bill. You'll even use Jesus to lie with???




  21. by Donna on June 28, 2023 5:30 pm

    He might try, Indy, but he'd be unsuccessful. IF he were ever elected.

    They just had one of the groundskeepers up in the booth. He also plays independent league baseball. He was talking about how he came out to his teammates. He said that during Pride Month, he laced his baseball spikes with rainbow laces. When asked why, he said he was celebrating Pride Month and that he's gay. He said his teammates were all supportive and several of them laced up their spikes with rainbow laces in support.

    He's been advocating for LGBTQ athletes to come out. There has to be lots of them who are in the closet. I think we're going to be seeing some of them coming out publicly in the coming years.


  22. by Ponderer on June 28, 2023 5:35 pm

    Bill, were you and The Woke Patrol aware of this heinous situation in Baltimore that Donna speaks of??? You should see it! Rainbows all the hell over the place. In front of CHILDREN!!!!!

    You better get on the horn and get your handlers to deal with this. The Orioles need to be CANCELLED! And QUICK!

    The worst thing about Pride Night at Camden Yards was that the O's lost. It was festive, upbeat and of course supportive of the LGBTQ community.

    I enjoyed the conversations in the booth with LGBTQ community leaders. Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer who frequently does color along with the play-by-play guy seemed particularly supportive of the LGBTQ community.

    MLB clubs hold LGBTQ Pride events because they're good for the sport. The relative few fans they lose is more than made up for by the number of new fans they're attracting, especially young people, through these events.


  29. by HatetheSwamp on June 29, 2023 10:06 am

    Generally, Donna. Would you agree that the Dodgers did themselves more harm than good with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence debacle?


  30. by Donna on June 29, 2023 10:10 am

    I'm unfamiliar with that.

    Disney has had Gay Week for decades and it hasn't hurt them, peebs.


  32. by Ponderer on June 29, 2023 10:28 am

    If it was any other year than this one where drag is in the right wing's propagandist crosshairs, it wouldn't have raised a peep.


  33. by Indy! on June 29, 2023 10:36 am

    There was like 5 minutes of wingnut backlash when they first announced it - after that, nothing. I'm fully convinced the wingnuts got together and decided it was actually a good thing because then they wouldn't have to worry about their kids catching the gay disease when they took them to Disney during the other 51 non-Gay Weeks. 😉


  34. by Donna on June 29, 2023 10:41 am

    I was hoping that O's announcers Kevin Brown and Jim Palmer would invite a transperson to the booth. Maybe next year.
