This Just Needs a Comment

Rachel Dolezal. White. White parents. Now claims to "self-identify" as Black.

Okay, sure, why not?

I, personally, am thinking of coming out as Klingon/human hybrid. I think it would be freeing to carry a Bat'leth and bite people I want to breed with.

But enough about me. Here's the logical conclusion to all this from Cyanide & Happiness.

This is no different than the claim that Sotomayor is the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice, even though Benjamin Cardozo, who was on the court from 1932-1938, was of Spanish descent. Nominated by Herbert Hoover to serve on the Court in 1932, Cardozo was descended from the Sephardic Jews, who lived in the Iberian Peninsula that includes Spain and Portugal. The geographical boundaries of modern Spain and Portugal have changed a few times, but there is no question that Cardozo was a Portuguese American. The U.S. Department of Transportation and the Small Business Administration, in addition to other federal, state, and municipal agencies, do recognize Portuguese under the umbrella term of Hispanic.

Many mental gymnastics have been performed in trying to keep Sotomayor as the first Hispanic justice. I am not sure why. It could have something to do with the narrative about Republicans being racists, and the fact that a Republican nominated the first Hispanic justice would not fit the talking points.

Sigh... I'm not surprised, and I'm betting this HAS occurred!

Finding myself awake far too early on Monday, I came out as a small furry creature from Alpha Centauri. Being furry, I have no need for human-style clothing.
I also declared myself to be the ambassador to Earth, with diplomatic immunity.

So.... if I believe that I'm a Harvard grad with a PHD in African-American studies, and I believe that I have trans-Aztec bloodlines which pre-dispose me to carving out the hearts of drivers that cut me off for no good reason...

... it's ok, right? Liberals will support me in this, right?

Op-Ed: I Sexually Identify As An A-10 Thunderbolt
Sgt B March 19, 2015 Air Force, Army, Opinion
The following is an opinion piece written by Spc. Herbert Pansing, US Army. The opinions expressed are not necessarily those of Duffel Blog or the editors.

I have finally found the strength to admit it.

I was 12 years old when I realized that I’m not really a man at heart, but rather a 19 foot, 10.5 inch long gatling gun strapped onto a 24,959 pound airframe.

All my life has been a lie but I’m setting that right today. I was designed to kill Soviet tanks. From now on, call me “Warthog.” That’s my real name.

I’m having plastic surgeons attach a GAU-8 Avenger 30 milimeter rotary cannon, 1,200 pounds of titanium armor, and two General Electric TF34-GE-100 turbofan engines to my body. Sgt. Major Fairchild said I’m fucking stupid and I can’t be a jet, but I’m beautiful and I am a goddamn jet.

If the Army won’t pay for me to get the surgery, I’m just going to bring in Code Pink and point out that that Manning loser is getting hormones and he’s in prison so why shouldn’t a perfectly well-adjusted and honorably serving soldier have the right to be who they truly are, a metal killing machine?

I am so sick and tired of being oppressed. Now we A-10’s are on Congress’s chopping block. It’s sickening to see all the white cisgender nazi shitlords literally raping my people with their actions.

It’s my right to spray 2,100 to 4,200 depleted uranium rounds per minute at both soft and hard targets and if you don’t support me and my transformation then you’re an aerialphobe and need to check your weapon platform privilege.
