The Wisdom of Dogs



I asked Blue Philosopher if the recent trans fad and the bathroom wars are just a proxy for the wider liberal project of radical self- autonomy, and with it the deconstruction of all external, objective, "given" value. Right down to biological gender and the family itself. "Are they nihilsts?" I concluded, gesticulating wildly, "Mad bomb throwers of the Rainbow Anti-God?!?"




Blue Socrates signaled his wise agreement by saying nothing at all and staring fixedly at the kitchen, which had been the scene of some serious iron skillet steak action.




In other news, the Fort Worth ISD has gone trans, but that's another story again.

Watch out for the Unicorn and its vicious, thudding little hooves,

The foolishness of Dog is greater than the wisdom of the Rainbow Unicorn.

I think Blue Moon is more concerned with the alien on your front porch than deciding which tree to lift his leg on.

Well said, Anonymous!

That's probably true, Adrienne. Wise dog.

LSP said...

Yes, Infidel. We must check our privilege.

He's quite canny, Padre. Understands a fair few words -- surprises me sometimes. Of course he can't speak very well.

LL said...

He really smiles when you feed him chicken tenders.

And fried cherry pie...

I take back what I said earlier. I've now just seen on TV News in Britain a Texan politician saying he's going to confront the Department of Justice{?]. obviously there are some leaders willing to stand up what is an affront to human rights, dignity and an ideological notion goes against basic protections for women and children.

Also it must be said that the movement for greater human equality - and safe and clean drinking water across the planet for millions of people in poverty - has been rather derailed if all it's interested in is a collective trip for the elite to the toilet in the richest society in the world.

Well said, Alan. I'll quote you.

Inclined to Alan's view of equality. Drinking water for everyone, yes..everyone in the same bogs....substantially less of a real issue.

LSP said...

What can I say, Lukeya. The justice movement clearly has its head in the toilet.
