The Golden Showers State

divine

Title stolen from Regular Right Guy, who always beats me to these stories.

Here’s a little known fact: Jerry Brown has been dead since 2007. I don’t mean that in some weird metaphorical way, either. He keeled over at a cocktail party in San Leandro from a massive brain hemorrhage. Now, dead people vote all the time in California elections, but running them for statewide election is a bit more problematic, so at the request of Anne Gust Brown her husband’s body was quickly embalmed and turned into a gruesome life-sized puppet.

Usually it’s unions holding the strings, but yesterday the Hollywood/Academic Left got the chance to control the executive pen for a moment and scrawled Jerry Brown’s signature across AB 1266, allowing transgendered students to use the restroom of their choice and play on the sports teams of their choosing. It’s a damn shame that Pete Wilson would never have signed a bill like this, because I think I would have liked high school PE a whole lot more if this had been in effect.

The transgender thing was the new moronic academic fad at around the time when I was contemplating dropping out of grad school, and now it’s making its way into official policy. It was annoying having to hear about transgender rights and “transphobia” from PC academics, but when California’s government puts the business of a fraction of a percentage point of the population over the many other problems in the state, it becomes downright offensive. High unemployment? Transgender elementary students. State is broke? Transgender elementary students. Rising gas prices? Transgender elementary students.

Now I’m about to write the most goddam patriotic thing ever written in history, so brace yourselves. America is the greatest country in the history of this planet, and if a man (for example) wants to go to a doctor to get pumped full of hormones and have his gennies cut off and replaced with an ersatz vagina, that person is still my fellow American and entitled to the same legal protections as everyone else. If a transgender person is assaulted, the person who carried out the attack should go to jail. At the same time, I have problems of my own, and it’s not my obligation, morally, professionally or otherwise, to worry about the sensitivities of people who actually think that God or nature made some sort of colossal mistake with their bodies. See? That’s tolerance.

And it’s not transphobic to think that the whole thing is weird.

    Really sad what depths my former home state has fallen to. Reckon the summer of 1975 was the proper time to evacuate, eh? Ol’ Pete was mayor of my home town when we left after my junior year of HS.
