Let More People Fail
Nobody told me they were giving away unicorns 🦄. I want one.
Amen! Consequence for bad and good. I’ve been preaching this for a long while. It would solve a huge amount of our problems. Remember when the team that won in little league got a free hotdog and coke? Consequence. Now, win or lose, same result. It’s all BS and if we have to go back to tough times this will be the first thing to go out the window. See how consequences work when people start staring to death. Which is how humanity lived for most of recorded history. Don’t want to wake up and work? Die from starvation.
And I don’t believe that there are that many people out there who really believe in the shit that’s being shoved down societies throat. No man I’ve ever encountered think “pronouns” are a good idea. Yet the Air Force just came out with a policy letter on proper use. It’s nonsense, I just can’t quite figure out why it’s allowed.
To whom you are attracted sexually is purely subiective and therefore cannot reasonably be contested by an outside observer. Where you decide to live your life on a spectrum of superficial, stereotypical male to female attributes (and we all do) is also purely subjective and similarly cannot be questioned. However, your biological sex reflects an objective reality which cannot be changed by your subjective personal view and futile attempts to do so can result in serious health impacts to you as well as actual harms to members of the sex you are impersonating (especially women). Finally, others who are grounded in objective reality should never be forced to accept your subjective version of your actual biological sex.
"No offense, but I just don't think I'd ever feel comfortable dating someone like you." Umm, in real life, lots of people hear such statements. I'm old, overweight, and balding. I have no illusions that women are fighting for the privilege of dating me. I've seen plenty of dating app profiles that say "no one under 6 feet", "must make at least 6 figures", hey, even "must love dogs". I wonder if the man who complained about this has any preferences. Would he date literally ANYONE? Or would he exclude, say, Trump supporters, or born-again Christians, or lepers, or people who never bathe? If there is anyone in the world who would not meet his standards, then he is a hypocrite for criticizing others for also having standards.
Natural consequences is a great concept to teach children when they’re young. Then these things won’t happen, hopefully. Protecting kids from their bad decisions leads to immature adults.
We have way too many childish, narcissistic adults.
Well said. There’s a big push in the “gentle parenting” sphere about not having consequences or punishments because it “teaches kids to do things because someone else expects them to.” And this is why we have so many entitled Gen Z and millenials that don’t know how to deal with real life consequences - whether it be work, family, relationships, the law...
And I will never understand those who say a straight person should be perfectly fine with dating a trans-identified person. It’s bizarre that people are even asking if they are transphobe for that. I’ve never seen a group so demanding and mean as the “loving and accepting” far left.
“How much sympathy do these people deserve if something bad happens to them? Not much. Not much at all.”
was my choice to not take the covid vaccine a "bad" choice? it was the right choice for me (and would probably have been the better choice for most people) but it had consequences that i will live with for the rest of my life. i was fired from a job i loved- 40 years as the costume director of the Spoleto Arts Festival- and now will never attend an event there or support them again. i learned that many people i considered friends weren't worth the paper they were printed on.
or did their "bad" choice- dumping me- result in them losing the very best, most passionate, most inspired creative staff member they were lucky enough to have? or maybe they haven't even noticed.
as for the people of Gaza, where can they go?
