#abolish

This appeared in the National Post, a Canadian online rag. It applies to US government just as much as it does in Canada.


Now that they are rich

As the story goes Craig’s List was at the Neaderthal days of the internet, a champion of freedom to post personal ads with explicit images, details, raunchy descriptions, etc.

Today, such freedoms online die a sad death. The owners of such websites have gotten fabulously wealthy, the businesses themselves the same, but because of fears of being sued as US governing bodies passed out of their asses a new law removing limitations of liability for online personals because of the intent to stop human trafficking, the personals are gone.

As it always goes, government created a sweeping bill to fix something that is minimally broken.

They used a massive earth mover to fix a few stones that got into a flower bed.

U.S. Congress just passed HR 1865, FOSTA

Craigslist.com used to be a model of internet freedom of speech, now it’s got the Good Hauskeeping seal of approval and June Cleaver is the spokesperson Wally.

Gender reclusive

The subway system authority of New York City called the Metropolitan Transit Authority – which should be acronymized for ease of speech as SSA/MTA/NYC – is replacing “ladies and gentlemen” announcements on it’s PA (Prince Albert or public addressers not sure which) with so called “gender neutral” statements.

I guess genders are offensive.

“The Metropolitan Transportation Authority wants to nix the phrase “ladies and gentlemen” in New York City subway and bus announcements and replace it with gender-inclusive language.”[1]

This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard.

There are two genders, female, male, how does one include any others by using different terms?

There are not any other genders in the entire world, well maybe one, those who are both male and female, which is one. In that case that rider can be referred to as either appropriately. Even if that rider prefers to be referred to as one of the genders, saying “ladies and gentlemen” is appropriate.

For those who HNG (Have No Gender) let them pick one. Let us be democratic instead of neurotic and go with the majority of how biology works.

So the terms the MTA will “appropriately” use instead are: “passengers”, “riders”, and “everyone”.[1]

Passenger viruses ride on subways.

I am not like everyone. I do not want to be associated with those neutered terms.

I do not consider myself a “passenger” or an “everyone”.

I am offended by neutral language.

Feature image of the initial construction of the London subway system where they would have laughed at such changes in how we refer to ladies and gentlemen is in the public domain is by Percy William Justyne living from 1812 to 1883, and was published February 2 1861.

HIV/NLAF*

Breath of fresh HIV.

Governer Gerry Brown in California signed a bill that lowers “knowingly transmitting HIV to someone” from a felony to a misdemeanor. [1]

How does one “know” such a thing (transmission)?

Testing confirms it? Testing is a SHAM.

The bill is SB 239.

They hope more people get tested with crappy tests in order to solve this problem once and for all.

ROFL**

G, maybe someone in the California Legislature is reading IMGAY.com blog pages.
