Where Is My Safe Space?

I know that this will most likely turn into a rant, but so be it.  I’m a little more than just annoyed at the state of intolerance people have for anything that is not in their belief system, and not understanding the concept of people not having the same thoughts or beliefs as they do.

For instance…

This past weekend, there were multiple reports of Veteran Memorials being defaced, and flag displays being vandalized.  Reasons ranged from sheer indifference to hating the military.  I never fails to amaze me that these moronic geniuses owe their very freedom to the people who gave their lives for the people of this country, which includes their clueless asses as they don’t give it a second thought.

Moving on…

I keep hearing about the gun control crowd still wants to “compromise” with gun owners in forming “common-sense” legislation to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals.  Considering that the gun industry is highly regulated to begin with, further restrictions on the legal acquisition of firearms by law-abiding people doesn’t seem to make a whole lot of sense.  If that was the case, Chicago, with a near ban on people owning firearms, should be one of the safest cities in the world.  Instead, the murder rate by criminal gangs with illegal weapons is one of the worst with innocent bystanders getting caught in the carnage.

Here’s my compromise for the gun control freaks:  Make it easier for the law-abiding citizenry to acquire firearms for their self defense & allow Constitutional carry, enforce the current gun laws (such as criminals arrested with a firearm are jailed instead of tickled & released), and stop believing that firearms are the problem when the people committing the crimes are the real problem.  Last, remove the human hunting preserves (aka, gun free zones).

Next…

The bathroom debate is absolute insanity.  Policies that address only 0.3% of the population is fraught with danger for those perverts wishing to take advantage of this stupidity. 

At this time, I would like to point out that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) used by psychologists still list transgenderism as a mental disorder.  I would also like to point out that people who have sex-change operations do not change their genetic makeup, and are at a higher risk of suicide.

How making a policy to allow people with a mental condition to feel comfortable while risking the rest of the population with potential mental stress and physical harm just doesn’t make sense to me.  While I would like the people with this mental illness to receive treatment, I certainly do not want others to be harmed because of a pervert taking advantage of this situation to commit sexual assault or invade the privacy of a person needing to relieve themselves.

Last (for now)…

There has been a great deal made by college students, aka “snowflakes”, that apparently cannot take hearing concepts and opinions that are counter to their own, upsetting their fragile egos and sending them into a fetal position.  They, with their faculty mentors, demand “safe spaces” in which to retreat and isolate themselves from the “bad thoughts and words” that other people have, and often this would include entire college or university campuses.

To which I say to these “snowflakes” –

Grow the **** up, and do it now.  The world will not cater to your whims – in fact, the people in it will take every advantage of your naivety, and walk all over your whimpering body while doing it.  There is a very big difference between school and real life.  Those that learn this lesson quicker will have an advantage.

I need to ask the following in closing this post…

Where the hell is my safe space from all the Liberal nuts that want to say the sky is green, right is wrong, and gender doesn’t matter?

To be continued…
