Dude looks like a dude.

A couple of months ago I wrote, “Please tell me he’s not going to be on the cover in a bustier.”

Nope. Expensive swimsuit.

Sincerely, it’s too late to worry about America “becoming” weird. If you want to cut your wang off and pretend you’re a woman, I won’t break your legs trying to prevent it. Your life, your problem. But don’t expect me to pretend it’s some great victory for human rights, okay? MLK wore a guy suit. Gandhi wore a dhoti and William Wallace presumably wore a kilt, but they weren’t cross-dressing. I honor what Bradley Manning did, but that doesn’t obligate me to look at Chelsea Manning in a lady’s swimsuit.

ETA: Because I just re-read what I wrote a few hours ago and I’m not sure it’s clear: There’s exercising the freedom to do what you will, and then there’s mental illness. It behooves individuals, as they go through their lives, to understand the difference. To my grief, since I really do honor what Bradley Manning did, I don’t think he has done so.

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    I see no reason to accede to Bradley’s demand that I address him as “Chelsea” just because he says I should. To carry that principal to extremes: In the unlikely event that Joel had that surgery it might make him into a very confused desert hermit, but it wouldn’t make him into Joline.

    Even Beer Goggles will not help.

    He can do what he wants, and call himself whatever, but what grinds my gears is the fact that all this nonsense tinkering was done with stolen money. GRRR

    Since I don’t give a flying crap about Manning, I’m actually more offended by the idea of a $300 bathing suit……

    If he earned that $300. – no problem to me. I don’t care what anyone else wastes their money buying. :)

    Last swim suit I bought was about 10 years ago. $20. at WalMart. I was going to the high school here once a week (for a little while) to swim for exercise. It was always a bit too tight. Hadn’t had it out of the drawer since, and went to try it on recently. No good. I’ve lost 125 pounds, and 12 inches off my waist, so it essentially falls off of me now. Not buying another one. :) A size 16 old woman in a size 24 skin does not look good… not even in a full length dress. LOL By comparison, Manning doesn’t look half bad… if you can ignore the obvious. :)

    Dude looks like a dude… Ya kinda like putting lipstick on a steer, no matter how much is put on the steer it’s still a steer. On the plus side at least he’s out of the gene pool or at least I hope he is.

    Wallace never wore a kilt. Kilts weren’t worn for about 100 years after he was dead. That is absolutely the only thing I remember from an hour long presentation on Scottish history.

    “Wallace never wore a kilt.”

    Geeze, that sorta ruins a certain scene in a certain movie.

To the stake with the heretic!
