I'm not a Christian. I'm not conservative, either. I don't have any particular axe to grind against anyone for their self identification or orientation (excluding predators, obviously). I think I'm just of a certain age.

@Amiga4000

Don't mistake having an issue with virtue signalling / inclusivity washing with transphobia. She's a medically trained first responder and as long as she's competent at her job more power to her and it's all she should be judged on. People shouldn't be abusing her, but unfortunately our society has regressed to such a state that paramedics across the board face hostility every day from the very people they're trying to help.

Years ago, we used to have something called basic human decency and civility. As it bled out in the gutter of the 80's "me first" revolution, political correctness was introduced to try and contain the results. This eventually (d)evolved into the horrific empty saccharin substitute of wokeness. Rather than promote civility and decency, wokeness channels the seemingly endless wellspring of intolerance and entitlement into a politically useable form, provided you are in control of the narrative. You only have to look at the phenomenon of cancel culture today. When we had decency and civility we could have reasonable conversations about sensitive subjects. Not anymore, it seems. If you have a difference of opinion from the narrative, you aren't debated with, you are shut down. If you're or some notoriety and have particularly upset people on social media you can expect worse. Everything you've ever posted dredged up, taken out of context etc.

Not fussed about whatever people choose to identify as or do to their bodies.
Just don’t force it on me and my kids and you’ll have no problems.

Unfortunately, you can't take that position. If you are not openly for it (it being whatever the woke agenda of the moment is), you are against it. There's no subtlety or nuance because it's not a debate. It's an angry herd, constantly stampeding in whichever way the hashtags indicate.

“Just don’t force it on me and my kids and you’ll have no problems. “

Exactly… as long as it doesn’t affect YOU! However, the whole point of the thread is, this “woke” b*llsh!t is being forced on the entire population of the planet. I assume, this person is a fully qualified “first responder” (I hate that newly coined phrase - which seems to apply to half the population). This person is also a full grown adult, knowing damn well what the response to 98% of the population his/her behavior is going to solicit.

The BBC article was created to invoke sympathy towards this person and for “extra added value” present it as hatred towards a, so called, professional. It’s called “mind control”

By this person lending his/her likeness to the article, in my mind, makes this person a collaborator to the woke BS. If you see this same person in the news again, in the same context, he/she will be crying, in public, that he/she is receiving hate mail and or death threats. This person solicited the response!

I went to a tech site yesterday and our little friend “java script” displayed a an unsolicited small window of some tranny with a popup rubber penis that sprayed lady jazz at children in some sort of sick public parade.

I think it was “Fake Franko” that asked “where do these people get the MONEY? They get it from mega rich donators and advertisers like any other money making organization.

So, the next time you see some advertising image like the one above, remember, it was created to “normalize” this type of behavior and create revenue.

And don’t think for one iota that you or your children can escape it!

The algorithm only shows you what it thinks you want, from what it learns of your interests from tracking the URLs you follow, etc.

Maybe you should use a better ad blocker and be more careful what you search for.

As CISO for a financial services company with a 3+ decade career in software development and security and someone with high functioning autism who’s strong pattern recognition abilities have rewarded me well in the tech industry, this revelation can only lead me to ask one question…

What on earth have you been looking at for the algorithm to think you’d be interested in transsexuals squirting faux-semen from a prosthetic fallus over a crowd of small children?

Am I the only one here in the same line of work with the same skills that is asking the same question?

@Karlos and Bosanac...

That's hilarious! I go to so called "news" sites (the same ones that any normal person would think they could trust) which display this type of crap. Which then I assume are parlayed to "trusted" tech sites. I also know how these sites work. So, I can only presume that site software developers buy/build (simply copy code) these algorithms into their own javascript transports/windowed displays for revenue.

Like I said, there seems no escape from this crap, and it's more and more prevalent, unless I were to remove my being from the internet. Which is probably a good idea except I wouldn't know about the "next" scamdemic! As a matter of fact, I didn't really care what was in the news until O'bama came along. Since then, the media and liberals have scared damn near everyone into reading their "news" as a segway to push their lies. I suppose your going to deny that too? Javascript is the scourge of the internet.

BTW, this sh!t was on FOX NEWS! Which I deleted the bookmark yesterday when I saw that crap. IMO, FOX news has become a real POS since it was sold a few years ago.

@Amiga4000

The code that shows the ad is typically not part of the site itself.

I kind of like Javascript. The HTML DOM less so.

Going back to the topic of the "erasure of women" (as I'm referring to it). I mentioned this one some posts back in this thread but it's an example of the sort of thing that I think should be a cause for concern. Consider the discussion between Senator Marsha Jackson and Supreme Court nominee Katanji Jackson.

https://youtu.be/ed0nWrtXr-A

Just ruminate on this for a moment. Aside from the aforementioned point that she clearly alludes to the common sense notion that the definition of "woman" should have some basis in biology, she refuses to provide any such definition. Point blank. As I said before, it was a trap question but equally a trap of her own making.

All of which leads to the obvious question: if she, a biologically female supreme court nominee, can't give a legal definition for a woman, how the hell is she supposed to uphold the legal rights of women?

Exactly! However, she’s not there to assent or dissent, she’s there to dissuade!
And the Potatodent regime want's to pack the Supreme Court with as many Moktar Stealth Haze magicians as they can. RIGHT... OUTTA... LEFT... FIELD!
All Hail Hollywood! BTW, can't wait for the aliens from Alpha Centauri to arrive.

Anyone else here old enough to remember this?

Robert Reed (the dad on the Brady Bunch) made a "for TV" movie in 1975 as the 1st transgender on prime time TV.

I was 14 years old and my parents made me watch it. They called it "educational" and something that should be out in the open. 1975! I remember thinking "don't look at me!" I just wanted to watch Maryann & Ginger!
