What Have You Done to Affirm the Identity of a Transpecies Alien Today?

This is a minor article, but it highlights an important question:

How much is society expected to contort itself to accommodate very strange people?

The law usually says, of people with disabilities, that society must make "reasonable accommodations."

The "reasonable" seems to have been written out of that formulation in today's Woke ClownWorld, and now society is demanded to make any and all accommodations to those who demand it.

Twenty years ago it was generally expected that if a person suffered from gender dysphoria, well, that's a sad thing and we'll make reasonable accommodations for such people, but that's generally their burden to carry, not ours.

No longer. Now transgenderism is every person's burden. We all have to help hump the load for transgenders. It's no longer their gender dysphoria, it's all of society's: And we are now all compelled to join in Coerced Group Therapy for those with gender dysphoria, mandated to "affirm" their gender as if we were paid workers in a gender dysphoria clinic.

The Daily Mail reports on a guy who has had extreme -- extreme -- body modification surgery to realize his dream of becoming a "Black Alien."

And he's complaining that people give him funny looks in restaurant!


"I had my nostrils and ears removed, and my whole body, including my eyes, tattooed to look like a Black Alien (racist much?), and now the Normies act like I'm some kind of weirdo!"

blackalienprojectflex.jpg

I've tattooed my entire body and removed my ears, nostrils and fingers to look like a 'black alien' - and now restaurants won't serve me

* Anthony Loffredo, 33, from France, turned himself into an alien through surgery

* Known as the Black Alien Project, and has removed his nostrils, ears and more

* He has revealed he can't eat at restaurants anymore due to his appearance

He also had most of his upper lip removed to give him a permanent alien teeth-exposed snarl.

A man who had extreme body modification procedures to look like a 'black alien' revealed he can't eat in restaurants anymore.

Anthony Loffredo, 33, from France, dreams of becoming a 'black alien' and has put his body through several procedures to remove his ears, nostrils and some of his fingers in order to achieve the look.

Speaking to LadBible TV, the Frenchman has admitted that his extreme look has earned him some criticism, and that local restaurants won't serve him on the terrace anymore.

Anthony, who took up body modification because he felt he was born in a body he didn't belong in, said he has had to make his peace with people who are 'close minded.'

LOL.


'If I want to eat at a restaurant, sometimes the server says I can't eat on the terrace,' the Alien wannabe said.

Go on.

blackalienheadshot.jpg

He says that his mental illness has helped other people.


He added that changing his body to look more Alien-like has boosted his self-confidence, saying: 'There are people that said thanks to me as they feel more secure now. That now the looks they get from other people, don't bother them.'

Anthony has already covered his body - including his eyeballs - in tattoos and removed his nose and top lip in his bid to look like a 'black alien'.

...

Despite Loffredo undergoing a number of surgical procedures - not least to split his tongue in half and remove his ears - he revealed that he is still '44 per cent' of the way to his goal of becoming a 'black alien'.

In addition to having metal inserted into his head to change the shape of his skull, he's had two fingers removed from his left hand to make it into a "claw."

He's also added metal rings to his forearm. He says this is to give his arm a "gilled" look.

Does he know what gills are?


gills.jpg

He's considering genital surgery, too:



Loffredo has undergone surgery to have a hole cut through the skin below his bottom lip. He often posts images to Instagram of himself poking his forked tongue through the hole.

...

In a previous Instagram post, he had hinted at splitting his penis in two, prompting one social media user to reply: 'I knew you were stupid... but that much??'

...

The latest transformative procedure comes after Loffredo had his nose and top lip removed. He later confessed that he now struggles to speak.

He had his nose removed last year in Spain as the procedure is illegal in France.

Other than piercing and tattooing, body modifications that result in injury are illegal in many European countries.

He's just on a journey of self-actualization, he says.

When he was working as a security guard in his twenties, he realised he was not living in the way that he wanted to.

This is all about him feeling more like the Black Alien he knows he really is. It's not about scaring normal people or anything.


The striking-looking individual said he loved 'getting into the shoes of a scary character'.

'I often settle down somewhere and play a role, especially at night in the dark streets,' he said.

Well, okay, sometimes maybe it is.

Our nation has been providing reasonable accommodation to those who need it for decades.

Now we are being demanded to provide all of the most unreasonable of accommodations, too.

The most intimate of accommodations: F*** a transgender on demand, or you're Literally Killing them.

transdating.jfif

We don't accept transwomen as "real women." The people saying that are either being nice, virtue signalling, or doing the minimum necessary to not get cancelled by the deranged, hateful, lunatic trans extremist enforcement battalions. Someone just saying "yeah transwomen are women" to shut you up is not going to take your Feminine D!ck in his mouth to prove he really means it.

Well, I mean: Some will.

But leave the rest of us alone.

I think it was Tim Pool -- maybe -- who said something like, if a straight, normal man began talking about who he thought he had the "right" to date, and aggressively insulted those who denied his "right" to date them, we would call him a toxic incel and keep our eyes on him for potential future violence against the people "oppressing" him by denying him his "rights."

But when a trans dude claims you have to date him, it's just... what? Fighting for freedom?

Here's another case of the trans community demanding the most unreasonable of unreasonable accommodations: a two-time r@pist decides, as he's on his way to jail, that he identifies as a woman now, and would like to go to a women's prison.

'You're on the wrong side of history.' So squeal the trans ideologues, in response to anyone who dares raise concerns about the new gender ideology and the threat it poses to reason, women's safety and sex-based rights. I wonder how it's feeling over there today, on the 'right side of history', with the chilling case of 'Isla Bryson', the male rapist who now claims to 'identify' as a woman, plastered across the newspapers.

Bryson -- real name Adam Graham -- was found guilty of raping two women this week. The High Court in Glasgow heard that Bryson raped one woman in Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire, and another in Drumchapel, Glasgow. Prosecutors say he 'preyed' on the two 'vulnerable' women, who he met online. The judge said he should expect a 'significant sentence'.

The coverage, as is so often the way with cases like this, has been downright insane. This male rapist has been routinely referred to as 'her'. That most maddening phrase, 'her penis', has been ubiquitous, even in the more conservative outlets. That rape is a crime that can only be committed by a man apparently has no bearing on these newspapers' oh-so-inclusive style guides.

Such credulity isn't limited to the media. The justice system, as case after case has shown, is also inclined to prioritise rapists' hurt feelings over common decency. Bryson is reportedly being held in a women's prison. There are fears he could be housed in one permanently, despite the obvious threat he poses to female inmates.

Some people are arguing that this particular man shouldn't be housed in a women's prison, because, unlike the case with other "transwomen" seeking entree into women's intimate spaces, he's not really a woman.

Um, real talk? None of them are real women. None of them should be permitted in women's prisoners or women's shower rooms.


Speaking of viral mental illness: This girl claims she has dissociative identity disorder. She has about fifteen "alters," all of whom have their own designer pronouns.

She also says that two of her alters are birds, and she's annoyed that you dummies can't understand this.

This is sad but also hilarious. Ryan Long and Danny Poluschuk marvel at how condescending she is as she explains that she's really a couple of birds. No big deal! What is it about her being two birds with human-hybrid half-bird alternate forms that you midwits can't understand?

It also includes a clause that teachers aren't bound by the child's new identity and so can use whatever pronouns they want. If it makes it, it will be promptly vetoed by Hobbs. Good grief.

To be honest, SoCal where I was was a great place to live - in the 90s. Early aughts it started to change and then in the 20-teens you could tell things were getting worse. There was no longer a shine to the place. In the 2020s intolerable. So I didn't continue to tolerate it.

16 Our nation has been providing reasonable accommodation to those who need it for decades.

As always, it comes down to who gets to define reasonable. I can't stand these kinds of arguments - but it always assume that those in power will subscribe to the same definition of "reasonable".

The current regime in power DOES think that today's expanded accommodations are reasonable. Hence the problem.

It would be better if everyone made up their own mind, acted accordingly, and allowing some consensus to emerge out of everyone's individual choices. But we pissed that away back beginning with the Civil Rights Act.

Same with the trans on trans. The trans-women wanting women to date them is driven by desire to take over the lucrative jobs feminists hold all over plus abuse actual women of all kinds. But aside from some sports girls, its just downgrading the earlier generation of left extremists.

That is a start - make it taboo for any legit tattoo shop.
Again, I lean libertarian, but these people get face tattoos and then go on the dole because they can't get a job. Either make face tattoo illegal, or eliminate all social programs (76 according to Rand Paul) for anyone who is able bodied *before* they mutilated themselves with drugs or stupid shit.

85 Another great podcast. One quibble: Joe Mannix was wrong on the tank question. America has about 6600 main battle tanks, of which 4500 are early Abrams models. Of those, about 3000 (at last check) are prepositioned in three locations, but mostly in Europe (where the country east of Germany is tank battle space.

So we have something like 2000 tanks in Germany. Germany has about 325 tanks. German tanks aren't more available to Ukraine, as you said, and nor is the German supply chain for tank parts more robust than our own, in Germany.

The opposite is true: we have many more tanks in Germany, and many more parts and supplies. We also have a recently deployed mechanized division in Poland and Germany, available for transport and training. Germany has spent so little on its armed forces that they didn't want to send 10% of their tank inventory to Ukraine (probably more like 20% of their fully operational force!). They want America to do it, because that's their default position on everything.

122 Republican Rollan Roberts II, a West Virginia state senator who was announcing a longshot bid for the presidency, hesitated as his wife collapsed during his speech.

Footage showed an aide standing nearby trying to stop her from falling, but she dropped to the floor along with an American flag. Meanwhile, the candidate glanced over at his sprawled wife – and did nothing as several people walk over to her. After what seemed like an interminable five seconds, Roberts finally heads to her side. Not surprisingly, he has been mocked mercilessly on social media for his feeble response to his wife in her moment of distress.

Posted by: I-IV-V at January 27, 2023 06:08 PM (U93OM)

Power doesn't work like that. It is as a general rule not precedent-based but instead whatever you can scrounge up at the moment. Refusal to use power grants no defense against those who would.

We have had for laws against theft in much of the country for a long time for example. When they get rolled back, people steal, as expected. This is an example of morality (thou shalt not steal) being enforced on a population and then the cessation of that force. The cause and effect are transparent.

The USSR, Nazis, and French Revolution depended on no precedent or grant of power to commit atrocity. They just went out and did it. It wasn't due to the existence of laws or police forces that they were able to do what they did, they created new entities as needed. Just because you want to "ban guns" metaphorically, doesn't mean everyone else will refuse to have them.

The problem isn't live and let live. It's that the vast majority of America simply won't agree to live and let suffer.

I remember an old SF story where psychologists had run amuck by using tech to "cure" psych problems in the underclass - fear of falling - wear a suit that can grab all about you to keep you upright. Walls crushing in - super strong metal shell you can hide in, etc. Guy was concerned it was ruining society by not curing problems but enhancing them, as people were now getting more than 1.

"Live and let live" leaves you open to being conquered. Which is what happened to us. The left successfully used naive and pacifist theories to overthrow the culture. Calling for truces and preaching peace does precious little good against violence.

It's basically the same assumption anarchists operate with. Hence the joke that the problem with anarchy is no one will follow the rules (that of non-aggression).

208 There's no power in live and let live.

There's certainly plenty in our current society of "live and prevent all suffering". And there is absolutely no way to have "live and let live" if that premise doesn't include "live and let suffer" as part of it.

But imagine if we tried it. If we actually let people simply suffer for their own mistakes. I assume a small minority of those folks would change their own ways, to something that made them at least suffer less. Most would continue right on, and I assume eventually perish. Leaving the rest of us to "live and let prosper". Government compulsion wouldn't be necessary. Those that could prosper - would. Those that couldn't - would not.

As you said, there's no power in that.

There's certainly plenty in our current society of "live and prevent all suffering". And there is absolutely no way to have "live and let live" if that premise doesn't include "live and let suffer" as part of it.

But imagine if we tried it. If we actually let people simply suffer for their own mistakes. I assume a small minority of those folks would change their own ways, to something that made them at least suffer less. Most would continue right on, and I assume eventually perish. Leaving the rest of us to "live and let prosper". Government compulsion wouldn't be necessary. Those that could prosper - would. Those that couldn't - would not.

As you said, there's no power in that.
Posted by: I-IV-V at January 27, 2023 06:35 PM (U93OM)

We did live and let live! That's how we got here! It's humorous that you can't see it.

Try this analogy. "I won't own a gun because it could be grabbed and used against me. I won't defend myself because that'd provoke a greater reaction".

How do you see that playing out? Refusal to have weapon or refusal to use them doesn't really accomplish anything.

All laws are force in action. Laws against murder are enforced morality.

The drama unfolded as Caroline Biden, then 31, pleaded guilty on July 26 of that year to racking up over $100,000 in charges on a stolen credit card. She was sentenced to two years of probation, which she wanted to serve in California near her beloved cousin Hunter.||

For any skywatchers here, there's a nice parade of planets going on right. Look to the West a little after sundown, and Venus will be bright above the horizon, with Saturn pretty low below. Jupiter, Moon, and Mars will be higher following the arc of the ecliptic across the sky.

Venus is now in the role of the "evening star". Sometimes it's the morning star, othertimes the evening.

Mercury will be at it's maximum eastern elongation around Feb 1st, and there will be opportunities to see it in the early morning before sunrise. With the treelines as they are here, I've never been able to spot Mercury. It's too bright before it gets above the trees.

I worked in a place that did code reviews to the max. 4 person review, in a meeting, with a design document. The document couldn't include any *actual* code to explain what it did since that might change and require the document to be modified. Review had to be scheduled a week ahead.

Then you would implement the change in the code base in about half an hour.

Well a relativist can be consistent as long as they don't appeal to external moral standards when it comes to the behavior of others. Like "don't murder me" is obviously not a justifiable moral demand under the system. The only argument they can make is force. And obviously there's no moral reason they shouldn't enforce whatever they please on others, there are only practical ones.

Everyone could make that choice for themselves. And what is the "decent" way to treat him would arise from the relative consensus of the free market of ideas.

Or we could cede that individual power of choice to either those of the current regime - or those here who advocate for a different, yet equally powered, regime. I'll make my own decisions, thank you very much.

The whole idea of requiring businesses to make "reasonable accommodations" is bullshit. Bad enough if the government wants to stick its nose in and require this specific thing or that. But, using an amorphous like 'reasonable', with no definition is, well, unreasonable. People should be able to look at a law and know what is required of them.

That's called believing in objective morality. Which is common across time and space.

Half-relativists don't usually last too long because tolerating someone raising an army and then shouting for a truce when they try to kill you doesn't generally work you.

Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Laptop at January 27, 2023 06:42 PM (zZu0s)

The refusal was localized and not usually followed. Suicide is a mortal sin, but only if there was knowledge that it was a sin, sufficient time for reflection, and conscious choice to do so. Most suicides are committed by people who are mentally incapable of those three things, so, no mortal sin.

In most cases, unless the person stated up front that they freely chose to commit suicide, the person was assumed to have been not capable of mortal sin and so was buried in consecrated ground.

Pol Pot was an environmentalist just like Greta. When he took over the big city, he wanted "improve" them by making them peasants, the moral standard of eastern Communism.

So he gathered up the entire population and marched them the hell out. Sick or infirm? Not supporting the revolution, lets shoot you now. Can't keep up? the same.

Of course, as not being detail men, there were no supplies issues on the march or waitnig when these people were dumped on a subsistence farming village with no house, land to farm or knowledge of what to do.

It's really the form of government that, despite all the coughs and bluster from his proponents, Nietzsche ultimately ends up endorsing.

He didn't like populism. Because throwing things out to the masses guaranteed a decline in quality. And: what does not kill you makes you stronger.

And not even Nietzsche can sustain his own relativism as he becomes quite a supremacist on a number of his criticisms. After saying everything is interpretation, he settles with screaming at the world for avoiding what he saw as the right hierarchy.

A false choice. You don't get to define the choices. That's always been your problem.

If the majority chooses to not freely associate with Mr. Tattoo - that's the same as killing the Jews according to the current regime. And on the contrary, I've seen quite clearly that most everyone has their own version of objective morality that they demand the rest of the world follow. Your biggest problem is that you believe your personal version is the one true version.

Your game is that you always present two choices - absolute chaos or subscribe to The World According to Red Turbine Someguy. Which is completely full of shit.

So you confess to believing in objective morality. I don't care what it is, it's just important for you to acknowledge you have it.

And yes, what I stated quite explicitly earlier was that people commonly believe in objective morality and it doesn't align. I even explained in a prior post that republics are a conflict mediation system to handle that. Violence is another means of handling it. Laws are their own form of violence.

I never presented my moral system to you!

The left believes in their morality, the right believes in ours, we are first voting and eventually fighting about it. Unilateral disarmament as you call for is dumb though.

I would add that those who are debating this issue all benefit from Judeo-Christian morals and ethics.

Without God, there are no reasons whatsoever to even have this discussion, since without God there is no "good" to even discuss.

I've outlined a system, more than once, where we each can express our own preferences - and out of that - a consensus will arise, while we all may yet somewhat enjoy the benefits or problems of our own choices. And that irritates you. Because at the end of the day, you don't ascribe to A objective morality. You ascribe to an objective morality that you believe is the One True Objective Morality.

Do us a favor. Start detailing it out. Because pretty soon - everyone who just assumes yours will align with theirs will figure out that's simply not the case. In which case - yours won't be the one that gets adopted. Not even in a little online exchange of ideas. I'm pretty sure of that.

And in your mind this is the only way to avoid being a tyrant?

You can't attain some level of human decency of not being a tyrant unless you are an absolutist in letting people hurt themselves?

You've made yourself an absolutist in terms of human self-determination, but you're not an absolutist about the value of human life. Funny thing is that tyranny is often known for it's tendency to devalue human life, without always chiming in on whether to let people jump off a bridge or not.

Here's the rub, you have already discounted the self-determination of people who want to build a society that will rub the corners off of human self-determination for the value of human life.

You've already expressed that you cannot respect that decision, despite that may be the decision made by myriads of social groups through history. And you don't respect that.

This is why libertarianism is doomed to failure, and collapse into hedonism.

Claims to objective morality inherently assert them to be true and others to be false. That's what makes them objective as opposed to subjective or relative.

You adhere to an objective morality that calls for a certain level of tolerance towards different behavior and views, which is true for basically everyone's system.

We can get to debating which is more practical, but yours does not adhere to some fictional non-assertion of power. You must still assert power for the system to prevail.

I assert that at a certain level of tolerance, the other guy just knifes you.

505 Here's the rub, you have already discounted the self-determination of people who want to build a society that will rub the corners off of human self-determination for the value of human life.

You've already expressed that you cannot respect that decision, despite that may be the decision made by myriads of social groups through history. And you don't respect that.

This is why libertarianism is doomed to failure, and collapse into hedonism.

This is the contradiction of an appeal to non-intervention as an absolute moral standard. Non-intervention means you can't keep people from intervening.

Which is a real danger. That's not the same as saying we should let a bunch of people form a murderous cult in the name of liberty. Sometimes, like would've been good with the 9-11 hijackers, you have to act pre-emptively. Recognize danger signs and deal with them.

Just like the Marxist idealist, you've let the perfect expression of self-determination become the enemy of the good-enough respect for self-determination by calling that compromise "tyranny".

That's no better than the shame rhetoric of the progs. And no more honest.

Let's start off with a simple assumption: It might not be an easy "solution".

You're talking about a Darwinistic approach which isn't even the crux of the argument, that is the claim that you put forth that the objective morality of others was tyrannical by virtue of enforcing morality while you doing the same thing wasn't.

Most of us here aren't invested in saving the cities. I'm not. Most of a debate about the merits of a particular law come down to cost-benefit, not underlying principles here.

Your particular cost-benefit analysis, of course, will be the only correct one. As always. Per usual.

People want to jump off a bridge. I wouldn't - but don't care if they do. You do, however, care quite a bit. I'll let them do whatever, as long as they're not jumping off a bridge onto somebody else's car or such. But you know better, for them

538 This guy's only complaint is that sometimes restaurants won't serve him? I mean, look at him. People definitely cross the street to avoid him. But his only complaint is that he can't eat on the terrace? Did he actually complain about this, or did a reporter just ask him what adverse reaction he had gotten, and then turned his response into a headline?

"He previously told the Club 113 podcast: I can't find a job, there's lots of negative stuff. It could be positive because you feel better, but you have to know there's also a dark side."
