Looks like there are a few nutters on the other side of the spectrum too.

Another one bites the dust! :lol: Putin’s buddy, Rex!

When Obama was elected in 2008, people were weeping with joy in the streets!

When DT leaves, people will again be weeping with joy in the streets and popping champagne corks!

Hope the one/s responsible for the letters will be found. I'm glad nobody was injured by the substance.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for the Parkland shooter.

I never met him as such but I’ve been in his presence a handful of times, and held a door open for him once.

Today I predict lots of pro-NHS and anti-Trump memes relating to Hawking quotes.

What exactly are "Labour's all-women short lists"?

I guess I'm trying to find out if that just means regarding trans women as women....


No idea. And, no, it is not about treating trans women as equals; he actually stated that as long as a man identifies as a woman (trans or not) then that is fine. It is absolutely ridiculous...but quite, quite typical of the logic of the extreme leftie.

OK, I looked it up myself, it's a practice by certain parties in the UK where only women are allowed to run for office in some constituencies. Political affirmative action, basically. I don't think that would ever fly in the US, though I'd like to see it at least proposed, only so I could watch some right-wing types' heads explode.

I guess the question is what (and who!) defines if someone is "trans or not". I mean, if it's obvious that some man is just saying he identifies a woman only to get on the list to run for office, yeah, I'm not for that at all....but is that actually happening? It kinda reminds me of the whole "bathroom bill" thing in the US, how some people were saying that if trans people are allowed to use the bathroom they want to, then any pervert who says identifies as a woman is going to be able to walk in and molest little girls or something.....except the places that DO let trans people use their preferred bathroom haven't had problems related to that.

So Stephen Hawking (RIP), who was born on the anniversary of Galileo's death, dies on Albert Einstein's birthday/Pi Day. Now that's some coincidence right there.

I have always supported and defended the trans population (it must be hell to be born in the wrong body); but this proposed action wants to include any man who identifies as a woman - which is, quite frankly, absolutely ridiculous. Owen Jones (he of the extreme leftie mentality) is forever coming out with such nonsense - I am just so glad that now some of those feminists he claims to speak for here and there are now slating him...karma is a fantastic thing.

Big loss to the world this one. Although I do not buy his theories at all. Seemed like a nice chap too. I just hope there is an afterplace - he could now finally be free of his physical prison.

Good on May for sticking to her guns concerning Russia. This type of evil should never be tolerated. Putin is a misogynistic, homophobic little man who just wants to drag Russia back to the Dark Ages...hope karma kicks his sorry little arse.
