Anonymous asked:Here's the million-dollar question: What do you think about non-binary/transgender folk?
Since I’ve got no clue what the first is, I’ll comment only on transgender. I think it’s a fairly well documented scientific issue that they literally have a brain that is wired for the opposite gender than their body is. I don’t think it’s a mental illness, they literally feel like a woman or man stuck in the wrong body.
Of course that’s based off research I read a couple of years ago, but I don’t see how that conclusion could have changed much in a year or two.
What I don’t get is the people who are all obsessed with trans people being a “3rd gender” or some crap like that. Most of the trans people I’ve known in my lifetime (not a huge number, but still) didn’t refer to themselves as trans or make a big deal out of it…they were just the gender they wanted to be. They didn’t draw attention to the fact that they were born a different gender, because it didn’t matter to them at all. They switched genders and that was that.
Anonymous asked:pro-life, pro-choice, or pro-both with caveats?
I’d say I’m closer to pro-life with a few caveats.
Anonymous asked:Can you explain how you're a lesbian and a conservative?
It’s really pretty simple.
I have conservative ideals, like wanting small government and low taxes and fewer regulations and a strong military etc. etc. etc.
I am attracted to women, not men.

Anonymous asked:You can rid of them with some borax. Mix equal parts borax, sugar, and flour then leave them in areas they'd like to hide at behind the stove or dishwasher and fridge. Then you can put some more borax around the perimeter of the house in a thin line so if they want in they have to cross it. Borax/Boric acid is the best defense against the little buggers.
YOU ARE MY HERO!
I can deal with death threats and obnoxious anons (not you obviously) but roaches freak the SHIT out of me. When my car is back from being borrowed by mom I will do this.
Anonymous asked:Are you familiar with the site thinkprogress? I am wondering your opinion on it because my friend often sends me unsolicited emails with links from there.
Oh yes, the Soros funded. I laugh at people that use it as a source to prove anything.
Anonymous asked:I heard the idea somewhere and found it true on an anecdotal (yeah >_<) level, just based on my observations of those who sympathized with or belonged to either party. I guess it depends how you define cohesive/infighting, but as someone with more practical political experience, what do you think? (feel free to ignore, long answer, I know)
Take a look at our primary season. In 2008 there were a TON of Republicans in our primary…for Democrats there were really only 2 front runners and the absolute second that a candidate was chosen the party was lock step in supporting him. In 2012 we had a huge field again (because, hey, why not do the Democrats work for them and attack each other and drag up controversies to be used in the election) and even after Romney was picked as the candidate we had pundits and prominent members of the party who did not come out to support him. They were still claiming he wasn’t conservative enough and doing half the job of the Democrats for them.
Democrats know how to take marching orders, Republicans are really bad at that.
Right now we certainly have more infighting as we have numerous Republicans being primaried by Tea Party candidates who are bound and determined to take as much attention and money as they can…which only ends up hamstringing us in trying to get more Republicans in the senate.
Anonymous asked:Thoughts on the idea that the Republican Party is hierarchical and more cohesive, while the Democratic Party is prone to infighting and disorganization?
Good lord do you have that backwards.

These are sweet ones so hopefully they will remain sweet when they get older.
Anonymous asked:What are some good smart right-leaning tumblrs to follow, in your opinion? (Sorry, I have to admit that the conservative tumblr list is a trainwreck)
Hmm, I hate doing this because I always forgot some of the best ones. If I don’t list you it’s not because I don’t think you are smart or cool or whatevs…it’s just late and I just took a sleeping pill.
Anonymous asked:my friend thinks requiring an id to vote infringes on someone's rights, and prohibits some from voting. But aside from needing id to register, how can you live a normal life and do, well, anything without any form of identification?
Not legally anyway.
Anonymous asked:You down with OPP?
I have no idea what that even means…
Anonymous asked:I'd love to follow more conservative tumblrs, but unlike you, they tend to be conservative for, well, the wrong reasons. :/ Haha, I'm right-of-center in the bluest state out there so this makes it even harder to find friends :p
There are a lot of more logical conservative blogs on here than you’d think though. Mostly I follow a bunch of conservative blogs and then wait to see what kind of argument/content they are putting out to see if I need to stop or continue following.
Anonymous asked:How do you feel about people who are conservative by temperament (aka conservative for the sole sake of upholding tradition / dislike or distrust of new things), as opposed to conservative because they've analyzed the other options and find that the system makes the most sense to them?
I’m glad that they vote the way they do, but I have little time or respect for them. They are the sort who will vote based on tradition or emotion, rather than logic…which means that they have their opinion set one way (whether based on incorrect or illogical data) it’s nearly impossible to change it.
For instance, I’ve argued often (and sometimes loudly) with one of my family members about the fact that their is no difference between a company refusing service to someone for being gay and a company that has a policy that prevents women from nursing their child in the store. In both cases this is simply a case of a business having the right to set their own policies…however she thinks the first is fine and the second should be illegal. This isn’t based on law or logic, just emotion.
This frustrates me because it’s not consistent.
Anonymous asked:Aw was it politics that drove you apart or is he just a dickhead in general?
A combination of things really. Part of it was politics, part was religion, party was just his maturity level. I don’t want to badmouth him, mostly because that would be hypocritical considering how I reacted to him badmouthing me.
Anonymous asked:Does your brother give you shit for being gay and conservative?
He has in the past, I don’t speak to him much anymore. I’ve seen him maybe 3 times in the last 2 years.
