Big Fat Greeks, and Weddings

Kathy Shaidle had a short but ingenious post the other day, headlined “If we’re crazy, they made us that way“:

The same people who told us 30 years ago that “marriage is just a stupid piece of paper” now insist that it’s a “human right.”

The same people who told us that “a flag is just a meaningless piece of material” now want certain flags banned and others raised — or else.

The same people who say you can’t change who you want to f*ck tell us you CAN change the bits you f*ck them with…

The same people who used to tell us to “lighten up” and “learn to take a joke” now fire people who make them.

It’s always a mistake to expect first principles from the left. In Turkey President Erdogan famously explained that democracy is a train you ride until the stop you want to get to – and then you get off. That’s how the left feels about “rights”. There are no principles, only accretions of power.

    Yeah, I’m stealing the whole damn thing! 🙂
    That entire post needs to be spray-painted in every public space, and then commercial PSAs made from it.
    So much obvious truth that we collectively “forgot” about.
    We “forgot” because the left suddenly stopped using these canards.

    I have a great fear about this new sexual revolution. I am just making this post so that I can try and understand it myself. I don’t even know if this is the right place.

    I was raised in a time when homos were considered to be sick. Ok-so times have changed and they are born that way. Fine and dandy. I agree and can accept that. Now they can marry and have kids– don’t ask me how .

    Fine it is the new NORMAL.

    My daughter , the Mother of My new Grandchild and a new Teacher can totally not understand my views to this new SEX curriculum that is being foisted upon everybody in Ontario. I think that it is wrong. It makes too many assumptions. She thinks that I am a total homophobe. Not true. Doesn’t matter.

    I have been attempting to think of how to word this to my Daughter. Perhaps you can all help.

    My first Daughter was pretty much with me the the first six years. There was 4 years before the next one. I was young and enjoying being a Daddy. I taught her how to shoot a gun, raise ducks, kill the predators and eviscerate a chicken. It was second nature to her.
    When she went to school she hung around with boys and played all their games.

    At some point the boys rejected her and she had a couple of lonely years and was also not accepted by the girls. She didn’t know how to act around rich little girls. My heart was strung out—as I watched her contend with this stuff.

    Now she is happily married.

    BUT— What would happen in todays’ enlightened world? She is not a Lesbian–but what would the teachers have been telling her if that was NOW.

    This is my FEAR—

    She would have been totally vulnerable at that time to any type of indoctrination.

    Is what I am attempting to say crazy—-? because I want to explain to my Daughter the teacher—where I think this will Lead.
