Trust me, I don’t like politics. In fact, I hate it and I don’t know a single person who doesn’t get a bad taste in his mouth just by hearing the word itself. But unfortunately, we can’t deny that it’s everywhere.
Bullying and politics go hand in hand- it’s all about who’s in, who’s out, who gets the goldmine and who gets the shaft. Politics is also about who can lie the best- who can talk a good game and make others believe it. It’s about influence, persuasion, false charm, and charisma- and bullies who are good at what they do ooze all four!
As we know, most bullies, especially the narcissistic and psychopathic types, are notorious con artists, and they are experts at lying, smear campaigns, and spin. So, let’s not kid ourselves by saying that politics has nothing to do with bullying. Politics has everything to do with bullying.
We have school politics and office politics as well as local, state, and national politics. Only school and office politics are child’s play, local politics is the middleweights, and state, and national politics are the Big Leagues! Big politicians always get their start in school and office politics then move their way up.
We now have identity politics, which is like a festering disease, in my opinion. And it’s this type of politics that is dangerous for the female of the human species, regardless of her race, ethnicity, orientation, or age.
As I mentioned in my blog post entitled, “How the Left Killed the Goals and Dreams of Female Athletes,” biological women and girls are getting the shaft in sports all in the name of transgender equality. If they want real transgender equality, they should create a third division- the transgender division in sports. There should be a men’s division, a women’s’ division, and a transgender division. It would certainly solve the issue of inclusiveness. Right?
Yet, biological men who identify as women are being placed on women’s teams, and, because they still have the muscle mass and body composition of a men, they are destroying the chances for biological females. How is that fair? Moreover, how is it not a form of bullying?
No all transgender people are bad, so in no way am I implying that they are. There are great people in every group just as there are bad. And they too should be treated with dignity like everyone else.
But the issue remains that, once again, women and girls are getting the short end, yet you don’t hear a peep from the pink vagina hats and other feminist groups. I wonder why.
And it’s not just in sports, but also in the area of public bathrooms, public showers, and the penal system! Now this is dangerous!
The Left wants to grant transgender females (biological men) the freedom to use the women’s and girl’s bathrooms. And they don’t necessarily have to be transgender. All they must do is identify as a woman! Hell, anyone can do that- including serial rapists, perverts, and killers!
All it takes is for a rapist to claim he is a woman, and he gets to enter the women’s room. He can then lie in wait for the next unsuspecting female to come in, and, preferably for the rapist, come into the bathroom alone! Then, he can attack! And, because of his muscle mass and body strength, most females would be at his mercy.
The Radical Left is basically asking for our mothers, daughters, sisters, nieces, aunts, and grandmothers to be more easily victimized by wolves in sheep’s clothing who have evil intentions, all for the sake of transgender equality and identity politics.
And don’t think they haven’t thought of that because, although the Radical Left is crazy, they aren’t stupid- not by any stretch of the imagination. Believe me, they know exactly what the risks are, they just don’t care. Their “cause” is more important than the lives of innocent women and girls. Excuse me if I “offend” anyone here, but I see the right and wrong of it. I also see reality and am not afraid to tell it like it is.
The penal system. In states like California, not only transgender women (biological men) but any men who identify as women, are being transferred to women’s prisons. This is a recipe for disaster and independent news pieces are already coming out with reports of biological women being raped, impregnated, physically assaulted, even killed by biological men in these prisons!
The hypocrisy is glaring, and it has been for a while now.
The Radical Left claims to be for women’s rights, yet they endanger the lives and well-beings of biological females by these ridiculous ideologies in the name of “transgender equality.”
They claim to be for women’s rights, yet they back countries like Iran, where it is customary to beat females in the street for such tiny mistakes as walking too loud, speaking out of turn, or walking beside her husband instead of behind him.
The Radical Left also claims that there are what? Fifty-something different genders of people in the world? But! For there to be fifty different genders, wouldn’t there have to be fifty different sets of chromosomes instead of only two (XX and XY)?
After all, we must “follow the science.” Right?
And how can they claim to be for women’s rights when they back groups like the Taliban- who are notorious for chopping off the feet of women and girls who defy their standards, past or present, and ransacking villages and family dwellings to take girls as young as 7 and 8 as child brides?
I’m all for for women’s rights, don’t get me wrong. But if we’re for women’s rights then we’re for it 100 percent, across the board, and there’s no straddling the fence.
Now, do you see the hypocrisy?
As a woman, these ridiculous ideologies infuriate me to no end. Anytime I get ready to go shopping or run any errands, I always go to the bathroom before I leave the house because I no longer wish to use the public bathrooms. It’s not as safe as it once was. But you can bet that if an emergency arises and I have to use them, I’ll always be alert and aware of my surroundings, and I urge every other woman and girl to do the same.
And if any creep comes in and tries to harm me, you can bet that I’m going to fight. I’m going to punch, kick, pull, claw, stab- do everything I must do to get him off me. And I’ll fight until I either kill him or he kills me first! That’s a solemn promise. And I’d also fight to protect another female being attacked, especially if she’s a child!
And I would expect no less from any other biological female who finds herself in the same situation.
Most biological females (and I say most because I realize there are exceptions to every rule) do not have the physical power and strength of a biological male (transgender or not). And little girls most certainly don’t have it. Hence, the imbalance of power that constitutes any form of bullying.
But sadly, it seems no one wants to have this discussion.

I agree with you on a lot of your posts but I don’t necessarily agree with you on this one. There were some transgenders who competed in the Olympics and they did not dominate and in terms of track, wrestling, and other sports there are several girls who have defeated males. The press makes a big deal when a transgender wins a competition but they never mention all the times they lose which is more often than not. I just think we are going nuts over what is less than 1 percent of the population. There are not enough transgenders to form another league. Some states don’t have a single transgender competing in athletic competition. Now what I would be in favor of is a male, female, and “other’ division where transgenders and any females that want to compete against males can be in (some women do like mixed gender competition). I also want to mention there is a boxer who is a biological female not labels themself a male that has beaten several males boxing, but that never gets mentioned.
Here is my point. We need to remember that people have rights. Do I personally agree with the lifestyle? No, because I think God makes people male or female but I think we are going nuts over something that is a non-issue. If people disagree with me, then what about the military? Some of the best soldiers in the world are female and in many countries they have the same physical expectations as males. We are a little slow here in the United States but as women have been given more opportunities, more and more have proven they can more than handle the physical and mental expectations.
If we are truly a free society where people can be what they want to be then as much as I don’t particularly like it, I think people have a right to identify what who and what they identify with.
You’re right, they do have a right to identify however they wish. I don’t question that. However, what about the incidences where rapists identify as women to have access to public ladies’ rooms and women’s prisons in order to find target-rich environments to find potential victims. I posted news links below that confirm this.
That does happen but unfortunately there is no way you can stop that. Rape occurs every day regardless of those situations including occasionally women raping men. I am not saying it is good but are you going to check every female that goes into a bathroom? I have seen transgender women you would have sworn were biological women (and some that obviously weren’t) but how do you check that are transgender men for that matter?
The biggest thing is to be aware of your surroundings, carry mace, know self-defense, work out regularly, etc. To me if someone is going to argue against common sense gun control, with the argument that criminals are going to be able to get guns anyway, well that would apply here too. If a rapist wants to rape, they are going to find a way. To me it is the same argument. Just my two cents.
No one’s saying anything about checking them. However, I don’t think they should use the bathroom, take showers, or be cellmates with women. That’s just my belief. Transgender should have their own public bathrooms, their own public showers, and their own prisons. That’s the point I make here. Men have their own facilities, women have theirs, Transgender females should have theirs, and Transgender males, theirs. Problem solved, everybody’s happy. And that’s my opinion.
I don’t necessarily disagree with that but the problem lies in there aren’t that many. No business is going to spend the money to build a bathroom that maybe 3 people use the entire year.
Hey, btw, I emailed you my survey last night. I only forgot to tell you. Let me know when you read it.
And yes, I stressed the importance of being aware of your surroundings and self-defense should the unthinkable happen. And yes, rapists will find a way to rape. But let’s make darn sure they have tomwork harder to find that way. Just saying.
Thank you, Debby. 💖🙂
To me the responses here, underlie the problem. It is strictly political theater. Cherie, and she has that right is obviously far right as the times politics are mentioned it is always an attack on the left not the right. And that’s okay! I am very in the center on most issues personally. And Goodvibes response cokes across as center but leaning left. I just think though and this is not intended as a slam against either side but when discussing bullying, you have to be careful not to let your political tilt become obvious or you annoy half your audience. I am going to post my views on this issue separately.
Actually, I’m not far right. I’m Independent. I don’t like either party because both wings belong to the same bird. However, when people are put in danger and getting a crappy deal, I pull no punches.
I was not offended. Good article.
Thank you so much, Texas Jack! 🙂
Okay here is my take. I agree with Goodvibes that there aren’t enough Transgenders for this to even become a political discussion. I also agree there aren’t enough to have a separate league, bathrooms, etc. At the end of the day it is about money. And issues like this are a diversion for real problems this country faces.
I have only met one transgender I knew about. And they were a very sweet person that acted very much like the gender they transitioned to be. And they weren’t very athletic so they had no physical advantage over women. There are exceptions to the rule on everything.
Now I agree with Cherie there needs to be self-defense classes for everyone etc. Yes there are some dangers for some girls and some women and there are dangers for some boys and men as many male boys are sex trafficked too. Yes some rapists will use transgenderism to their advantage but most won’t. I just don’t think passing laws for exceptions to the rule is good politics and that’s all this issue is..politics
I agree. There shouldn’t be any need for passing laws on this to begin with as I believe in the old saying, if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. However, we’re in this mess now and females are getting hit hard with it.
Hmmmm, A lot of horrible things are going on. May God have mercy on this generation and our erroneous acts.
I totally agree! May God have mercy on them and may He protect the innocent who will no doubt fall pray.
Again, a great post! We HAVE to speak up and tell the truth or the liars, cheaters, and maniacs win!
Absolutely, Dawn! Blessings to you, hon! <3
Thanks, Cherie, same to you!
Brilliant post, a breath or fresh air indeed.
Thank you so much, Amber! I felt in my heart I had to speak out about this injustice in the disguise of justice.
Absolutely, your voice is needed at this time for sure. 🙏🏻♥️
We appreciate your honesty and obvious expertise. Good article.
Thank you so much, Jack. You don’t know how much this means. 🙂
