I refer to a 2/19/2017 commentary from the Libertarian blogger Willis V. Hart.
|Willis Hart: On the Fact that I Now "Identify" as an Attack-Helicopter|
So, am I catching on? P.S. And, yes, you can rest assure that we will be discussing restrooms (along with a few other accommodations) in the not-to distant future. Big time. (2/19/2017 at 4:30pm).
No, asshole, you are NOT "catching on". You're mocking transgendered people. And not for the first time! Which is why I call BULLSHIT on the statement Willis Hart makes underneath the title of his blog (specifically the 2nd claim).
Socially tolerant? Bullshit! A socially tolerant person doesn't mock transgendered people. A socially tolerant person also doesn't defend a business owner's "right" to discriminate against gay people. Something Willis Hart does. Via some Libertarian BULLSHIT known as the "non-aggression principle".
The valid criticism of this "principle" (as per Wikipedia).
|Critics argue that the non-aggression principle is not ethical because it opposes the initiation of force even when they would consider the results of such initiation to be morally superior to the alternatives that they have identified.|
Under this application, gay people are denied their public accommodation rights in favor of protecting the "right" of a bigoted business ower to discriminate. Proof (IMO) that Willis is an anti-gay bigot in addition to being a transphobic bigot.
BTW, yes, we are going to be talking about this big time in the not too distant future. The "not too distant future" being this past Wednesday. 2/22/2017 being the day Trump "rescinded protections for transgender students that had allowed them to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender identity, overruling his own education secretary and placing his administration firmly in the middle of the culture wars that many Republicans have tried to leave behind" (source).
But I guess the Hartster has nothing to say on that matter. Except to mock transgendered people. No, wait. He actually did write something on this subject before.
|Willis Hart: On the 52 Year-Old Man Who's Transgendered Into a 6 Year-Old Female (Those Are His New Parents in the Picture). Can we all at least agree that this guy's bonkers? P.S. And do you really want YOUR female kindergartner peeing and pooping in the stall next to him? (2/19/2017 at 4:30pm).|
WHY should anyone care who is in another stall in a bathroom? Is Willis saying his worry is rape? That is the lie that conservatives like to repeat. You're different from the norm (transgendered or gay) and you're more likely to rape. Even though it's completely false. BTW, I don't think you can transition to a younger age. So yes, the individual in question probably has some mental problems.
Anyway, by highlighting this individual, is what Willis saying is that all transgender people are "bonkers"? Yeah, I think that could be inferred. I mean, he writes "can we all at least agree"... implying that he thinks ALL transgendered people are "bonkers" - but that everyone who doesn't agree with him on that can AT LEAST agree with him in regards to an adult transgendered person who thinks they are a child.
More proof he's bigoted against transgendered people.
