‘Twas No Fluke

First, mandatory contraception coverage. Next, mandatory sex reassignment surgery coverage.

And you will comply. Or so help us, you’ll be forever stained with the charge of being a “heterosexist.”

  1. (Fluke) also, apparently, believes that it is discrimination deserving of legal action if “gender reassignment” surgeries are not covered by employer provided health insurance. She makes these views clear in an article she co-edited with Karen Hu in the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law.

    Hmm. Almost like she whored herself out to Congressional Democrats to advance her left-wing agenda.

    We know what Fluke is, now we’re just haggling over the price.

  2. Heterosexist or natalsexist?

    Wait. They’ve already got a neologism for someone who identifies with the sex they were born with, but I don’t care enough to look it up. Sadly, I’d prolly find it most easily at David Thompson’s place.

    In the same news, Obama is fixin’ to give seven oil-rich Alaskan islands to the Ruskies.

    Obama: EVABODY DRILL FOR OIL ON OUR DIME. We’ll just sit over here and depend on ya.

  3. Also, “Secretive nationwide network gives SEIU new organizing muscle.”

    The politically aggressive Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has quietly created a national network of at least eight community-organizing groups, some of which function alongside the Occupy Wall Street movement, a Daily Caller investigation shows.

    Incorporated by the SEIU as local non-profits, the groups are waging concerted local political campaigns to publicly attack conservative political figures, banks, energy companies and other corporations.

    Each local group has portrayed itself as an independent community organization not tied to any special interest. But they were founded, incorporated, and led by SEIU personnel.

    The individual activist groups use benign-sounding names including This Is Our DC; Good Jobs, Great Houston; Good Jobs, Better Baltimore; Good Jobs Now in Detroit; Fight for Philly; One Pittsburgh; Good Jobs LA; and Minnesotans for a Fair Economy.

    In reality, they are creations of the wealthy and influential labor union, amounting to a secret network of new SEIU front groups.

    No surprise, of course, but always good to name names.

    Honestly, does anyone know why these people keep winning? Even their nomenclature is transparent as a trollop’s panties. Peek into any “non-profit” group with a name that begins with or includes “Better X” or “X Now” or “People for Fair X” or “Good X.” You know what you’ll find.

    They drape themselves with the cheapest approbative adjectives like a mantle of purity.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is charged with implementing the nation’s immigration laws and part of that responsibility includes detaining and deporting those who break the law. However, the Obama Administration, ICE Director, John Morton, and DHS Secretary, Janet Napolitano made changes to the process and will provide a litany of “special perks” for those who break the law.

    The 355-page detainee manual includes benefits like special meals, female hormone treatment for transgender detainees, abortions, undisclosed medical treatment, “ethnically appropriate” meals, unfettered access to interpreters and legal services, access to preferred-religious materials, and mental health services. The extensive manual provides many perks that American citizen prisoners do not receive, according to Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX).

  6. “Next, mandatory sex reassignment surgery coverage.”

    YAAAY! These man-boobs have begun to be an embarrassment. Now I can turn them into an asset!

  7. reason #8,777,654 to get rid of dept of edu

    Department of Education officials met with a group of principals last week to explain changes in Progress Reports coming out this fall. Schools that send more kids to community or baccalaureate colleges within six to 18 months will get extra credit.

    When a principal asked about points for grads who choose to enlist in the armed forces, he was shot down.

    “The military isn’t college. It doesn’t count,” the group was told.

  8. In the same news, Obama is fixin’ to give seven oil-rich Alaskan islands to the Ruskies.

    Can we saw him down the middle and give half back to Hawaii, half back to Kenya?

  9. The 355-page detainee manual includes benefits like special meals, female hormone treatment for transgender detainees, abortions, undisclosed medical treatment, “ethnically appropriate” meals, unfettered access to interpreters and legal services, access to preferred-religious materials, and mental health services.

    Holy crap. Even the Congressional Health Club and Cafeteria doesn’t offer that much.

  10. SEIU is learning from Gamaliel which always gives an individual name to every local group they organize and do not tell the locals except for the leaders that there is any larger organization.

    CPUSA and it’s boss the Soviet original did the same for all those front groups. The little people don’t need to know, ya know.

  11. And you will comply. Or so help us, you’ll be forever stained with the charge of being a “heterosexist.””

    Isn’t a heterosexist the same as a homophobe?

    How about genderist?

    Anyway, I just now finished reading “The Origins of Political Correctness” from here, and read:

    Fromm and Marcuse introduce an element which is central to Political Correctness, and that’s the sexual element. And particularly Marcuse, who in his own writings calls for a society of “polymorphous perversity,” that is his definition of the future of the world that they want to create. Marcuse in particular by the 1930s is writing some very extreme stuff on the need for sexual liberation, but this runs through the whole Institute. So do most of the themes we see in Political Correctness, again in the early 30s. In Fromm’s view, masculinity and femininity were not reflections of ‘essential’ sexual differences, as the Romantics had thought. They were derived instead from differences in life functions, which were in part socially determined.” Sex is a construct; sexual differences are a construct.

  12. They’ve already got a neologism for someone who identifies with the sex they were born with,

    called cis gendered

    Read any Left-feminist blogs and it comes up all the time, in the manner of an apology

    e.g. “I know I’m just a white, cis gendered female, but I really do understand …”

  14. The Stupak stupidity.

    Some journalists have wrongly reported that the ObamaCare law contains language prohibiting the federal government from mandating that health plans cover abortions. This is erroneous. The law prevents the Secretary of Health and Human Services from including abortion in a list of federally mandated “essential health benefits.” But the birth control mandate is based on an entirely different provision of the law, which allows the Secretary to mandate that all health plans cover any service that the Secretary places on a list of “preventive” services. There is nothing in the law to prevent the Secretary from placing abortion, assisted suicide, or any other additional services on the preventive services list,nor does the Secretary require the agreement of any other authority in the government to do so — except, perhaps, the president.

    Just think how many creatively crafted “diseases” can be totally prevented with just a stroke of the pen and a new definition. Genius!

  15. A savvy Republican would seize on this as evidence that the entire Democrat Party supports mandatory gender reassignment insurance coverage, and let them see how it feels to be on defense for once. Of course, this would assume there is such a thing as a savvy Republican.

  16. Didn’t realize that WS piece was from 3 weeks ago.

  17. What like cislunar ? As in ‘nearest side of’ ?

    LOL. No way! I suppose the default is nullgendered?

  18. What if I want my gender to be a hyper-man with two wongs and four dangle-bits? Am I covered if I need to double down on my crotchial man-ness with surgery so I can be on the outside as I am in my mind ?

  19. Cis is a medical term for a duplication of the alleles in the genetic code of an individual, often resulting birth defects. It is the opposite of trans.

    So, they are not using the term correctly. Big surprise.

  20. I’m beginning to suspect that Ms. Fluke’s law school career and Congressional subcommittee testimony was all an elaborate scheme to get the Catholic Church, through Georgetown University, to pay to remove her penis.

  21. it’s also the latin preposition for “on this side” as in Cisalpine Gaul.

  22. Makes sense. I wish I knew more latin, it would have helped a lot when I was taking all of those medical classes.

  23. ms. fluke testimony raises the question of: why the eff are taxpayer dollars going to planned parenthood? is that billions fail?

  24. Just to recap:

    If two students in a public school meet and say the word “Jesus” without the intent to denigrate and without irony, a Religion has been established in abrogation of the United States Constitution. One, singular person, aggrieved by the uttering of the word “Jesus” in a public school may exercise his or her conscience and prohibit any further mention of this “Jesus,” and in the process shift his or her attorney’s fees to be paid by the school district. This, we are told, is required by the First Amendment.

    On the other hand, decades if not centuries ago, the Catholic Church, through its religious orders of priests, brothers, and nuns, established hospitals in fulfillment of their religious injunction and as part of their ministry to care for the sick and infirm, often directing their services to the impoverished and providing these services for reduced fee and no fee to persons who may or may not have been Catholic themselves. (In fact and as an aside, the traditional nurse’s uniform is patterned after a nun’s habit.) They gave these institutions names like “St. Mary’s” or “St. Luke’s.” But these are not religious institutions or organs of the greater Church, according to our betters – these are mere employers, and they have no rights of conscience or protection against the interference of the Federal Government in the affairs of their belief and mission. The First Amendment does not have anything of moment to say in this case.

    Understood?

  25. really this should raise the issue of what the fed gov’t is already doing/not with contraception. this should be the issue where cons can beat the proggs with their own programs. but no we have idiots on “our” side.

  26. we should be nailing pp for the failure to cover sandra fluke’s make believe victims.

  27. Nurses are still called “sisters” in the UK.

  28. And Planned Parenthood is supported by my tax dollars under what Article of the Constitution?

  29. And Planned Parenthood is supported by my tax dollars under what Article of the Constitution?

    It’s in there between the abortion clause and the gay marriage amendment.

  30. Got it, Alec. I can feel the emanations from the penumbra.

  31. I wish I knew more latin, it would have helped a lot when I was taking all of those medical classes.

    That’s why they invented dictionaries.

  32. I have one, weisenheimer. I just wish I had total recall like I did when I was in my 20s.

  33. Lemme guess

    Bantam’s Latin-English/English-Latin.

    Amongst the congnoscenti, there’s only one Latin dictionary, and that ain’t it.

    he said haughtily

  34. I’m amazed no one has landed on the obvious [headline] pun yet.

  35. Now that you pointed it out, sdferr, that’s pretty funny.

    Ernst, it’s a medical terminology dictionary. Medicine and law like to use the eternal language.

  36. Ah-ha! Not even a real Latin dictionary

    he sniffed superciliously.

  37. For real, huh?

    I do have an OED, though. So there.

  38. I’m just a teeny tiny bit jealous about that one.

    Do you have the twenty volume set or the two volume one you that need to read with a magnifying glass?

  39. The latter. It resides on a shelf just so I can say I have it.

    I use the Oxford American Dictionary (in papyrus back) for everyday usage.

  40. I still reach for the Random House College Dictionary (revised edition) that I got as a h.s. graduation gift, along with stapler, a 3-hole punch, a box full of staples (that I still haven’t finished off 2o years later) a scissors and a couple of rulers. (Gee, thanks Dad).

    The Frau has an unabridged Webster’s floating around somewhere. And there’s also a 3 volume unabridge Webster’s that I scored, along with a Britannica atlas, from the idiot husband of one of her friends.

  41. Are Addadicktomies and Lopitoffamies now included in the
    (reputable) medical dictionaries?

  42. The actual “-ism” associated with believing people should remain with whatever bits they were given on birth or somehow favoring those who do is cissexism, not to be confused with transphobia, which is specifically singling out transgendered individuals for persecution (for the same range of “persecution” included under homophobia).

  43. Can’t we have placebos that can be tried out for an appropriate amount of time that could include actual hormone replacement therapy so the affected individual would be able to make a more informed choice about the course of the rest of (its) entire life?

  44. I have an aging but result-proven pair of testicles that I really don’t need any more. However, before I agree to donate these to someone who I do nor know do I know anything about, I want some assurances that they will be used in the way that nature and natures God intended for them.

    Before my wife had her hysterectomy, we had seven children. All were of average or better than average intelligence, and with the exception of Factor Five Leiden (a hyper blood clotting disorder) our children were very fine physical specimens with exceptional good looks, though not too tall.

    Basically, what I am trying to say is that I want some reasonable insurance that the spermatazoa produced from my donated gonads will not end up in the anus of another male or in the gullet of a slut where they will have zero chance of continuing the human race, which is , after all, the reason that I agreed to donate my gonads in the first place, not to let someone experiment with their sexuality or to experience the “other side of life.”

  45. They don’t have to be real biological transplants bergerbilder.

    As with all gender modification a mere cosmetic resemblance is fine. I just want my shorts to be even MORE uncomfortable one a really hot day. My inner gender has extra junk. And webbed toes. I want those too.
