It’s less relevant but I like to think there’s also a good amount of overlap with people who use “I Will Always Love You” for their first dance at their weddings.

28

u/ReverendDizzle May 17 '24

I was at a wedding a few years ago and the first-dance song was "Betterman" by Pearl Jam.

I was like what in the actual fuck is going on here. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the song, it's essentially about a woman in a shitty abusive relationship who has lost her sense of self, doesn't leave because things are familiar and she (feels) she can't do any better than what she has, etc. etc.

But like the other songs we're talking about here, people only hear the refrain. Which is "Can't find a better man" over and over again.

But fuck sake, your first dance in front of a whole hall of your friends and family to that song? It was pretty awkward.

13

u/one-man-circlejerk May 17 '24

I've also been at one where they chose this song! It's like guys... didn't you listen to the rest of the song??

13

u/ReverendDizzle May 17 '24

Right? I was legitimately shocked by it. What would possess someone use the song? The opening lines are:

Waitin', watchin' the clock

It's four o'clock, it's got to stop

Tell him, "Take no more"

She practices her speech

As he opens the door, she rolls over

Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

But sure, let's play that as our first dance song. Nothing foreboding about that at all.

14

u/one-man-circlejerk May 17 '24

And the next line...

She lies and says she's in love with him

Yep great wedding material there lol

She lacks basic self awareness.

If she had it she would realize that she is a walking PSA on wealth and white privilege.

She was considered the defacto spokesperson for trans people in the United States despite the fact that no one wanted her and she has no frame of reference through which to relate to other trans people. When she came out as trans she was already filthy rich and above the struggles of the average trans citizen.

Then she turns around and stabs the very community she proports to speak for right in the fucking back.

u/confusedandworried76 May 17 '24

What bothers me most about her is I've seen her do some TV where she is just literally explaining what being trans is, and how she made that decision about herself, and her whole story like how she picked her new name and stuff, and I've seen it with other people who were clearly learning a lot they didn't know before because this person was just really frank about what was happening, had happened, what it was like, and just honestly answering questions about her experience and past and present.

But she doesn't use that power for good, for other people like her. And I got upset because it was like "you have so much power to do good in this world and it fell into your lap and it seems like you really know that, but also you're a hateful bigot who doesn't even realize how self-hating you also are, and you hitched your horse to the worst possible post."

Also she got away with murder so there's that part too.

u/dollop_of_curious May 17 '24

It really frustrates me that the discussion around Jenner always ENDS with the murder. As if taking the life of an innocent person shouldn't be the FIRST red flag about a person.

I don't think you're wrong or bad for formulating your thoughts in the order that you presented it, but it drives me crazy that all of society does it.

Caitlin Jenner THE KILLER, happens to be a highly visible trans person. She says bat-shit crazy things, does bat-shit crazy things, and fraternizes with bat-shit crazy people. Her trans identity is honestly the most acceptable part of her personality.

I sometimes hate teaching and patient care. People don’t appreciate these things. Tbh, I feel like I’ve been to enough districts to say this: people who think reducing history and social studies to stop “wokeness” or whatever are doing their kids a great disservice.

It’s why I like teaching in urban areas. Despite that people say the suburbs are stronger in terms of math and science, history and social studies are stronger in the city. You get less people trying to alter curriculums to suit their political goals. As a result, a lot of the city kids are more open and accepting than what I see way out in the sticks.

I’ve seen less bullying, more kids being safe with their identities, etc. I’ve also seen a lot of kids safe in their identities too. Nobody getting kicked out for wearing suits or being trans at prom. Pronouns being respected. All kinds of nice things in the city lol

You hit on something that I never considered. Christians think trans people, gays, etc are grooming or recruiting others because it’s what they do themselves. Christians primarily want to make other people Christian. They can’t imagine others living without the sense of having to proselytize as a way to demonstrate their worth.

Yes, it is always projection.

u/Late_Entrance106 May 17 '24 edited May 17 '24

Now that you’ve noticed, you’ll never not notice this is their modus operandi.

They think the opposition is guilty of all the propaganda/indoctrination stuff they do. The level of projection is insane.

Edit: grammar check on the correct use of there/their and italicized ‘modus operandi.’

Welcome to the problem. The key to denial of wrong doing is to blame the others of the same.

I am sure you have seen or experienced when a partner says "your cheating on me" to cover there own.

Now consider thing, with all the cheating on the election, with the "stop the steal", the 1st amendment stuff, so on and so on.

just remember DJT called someone and asked them to find 30k votes...

and now consider the fact they were claiming white genocide.... Uh that would be weird if they planned on killing minorities...

I grew up in “the church”, never was around anyone openly gay/trans etc, it wasn’t mentioned to me anywhere other than how awful gay people are. Still turned out bisexual which I didn’t even know was a thing

I was homeschooled by my parents for the sole purpose of them never telling me that lgbt people exist and so that I wouldn’t have a sex ed class. So I never knew about lgbt people until I was in my early to mid teens. But I still dreamt of being a girl every single night. I’m still trans despite their effort to keep that information away from me. All that happened as a result was a lot of self hate because I thought “if they aren’t telling me about this, it must be disgusting and wrong. I want this, so I’m disgusting and wrong.” Keeping me away from knowing about trans people never changed my gender identity, just like being around queer people isn’t going to suddenly make someone gay. I wish people could understand this.

Same here, I have gay and trans friends, but have never once felt like they were trying to recruit me. My suspicion is that the people vocally upset about “being converted” are having feelings of attraction that they don’t know how to deal with. If they weren’t hateful bigots, I’d feel bad for them.

28

u/HighSideSurvivor May 17 '24

It’s projection, and it’s also nonsense.

I am 1 of 4 siblings. 2 straight, 2 gay. Same parents, same schools, often the same teachers. Yet totally different outcomes.

If some “woke” teachers made my brother gay, why not me? And why did the non-woke teachers apparently allow me to be straight, but not “fix” my gay brother?

Meanwhile, a dear friend who is CLEARLY gay remains closeted to this day, ensconced in a traditional Christian family, and married to a very conservative woman. That guy has been conflicted and unhappy HIS ENTIRE LIFE.

It’s really tragic.

My wife is a teacher and this year some poor kid had a goofy dad that made him make a video of the classroom so he could make sure there was no “woke stuff hanging up”.

Social media has really opened my eyes to how many dumb/gullible people are out there

u/GryphonOsiris May 17 '24

The dad could try not being a dead-beat and maybe go to their parent teacher conferences once and a while.

The drain of irrelevance is right. Being she is in her 70’s at this point I assume and really hasn’t had a career in 40 years this is the only way to keep in the limelight. Honestly if it wasn’t for her very public transitioning and that stupid show nobody under the age of 60 would have a fricken clue who she was.

This meme is not the roast they think, “woke” teacher didn’t give the kids LGBT ideology, just like how rainbow colour was inherently the composition of white light, LGBT kids are inherently such, and they are no less normal to cishet kid

16

u/No-Maybe-7084 May 17 '24

Exactly this! The true implication of this meme is, the “woke teacher” is helping kids to express their true selves, instead of teaching them to conform.

Obviously this is the true threat to society. /s

I see this as saying, woke teachers make the world a more beautiful place. What’s the problem here?

Best example how someone wants to be part of the patriarchy even though themselves are the targets of all their lies.

Happened also in Germany. Jewish citizens, who helped the Nazis finding jews, got labeled as "Honorary Aryan". But it didn't help them, the Nazis still took them later.

I legitimately do not understand.

I've taught a trans student. She was brilliant in my class and had straight As. None of us knew she wanted to transition, it was never hinted at by her, nor did any of us ever discuss the topic broadly if ever at all.

Yet 2 years post grad, she chose to transition. And I'm proud that she had the courage to do so when she grew up in as small and conservative of a town as she did.

We in education do have an agenda. To produce capable students who hopefully upon graduation can go out and be successful in the world. Everything beyond that is on the parents and the community.

Just because you identify with a group doesn't mean that you belong with them, or can't contribute to the oppression of that group.

This is what wealth does to minorities. They surround themselves with luxury, privilege, and become spoiled brats. They also isolate themselves from the people they identify with and surround themselves by old rich white men who they idolize and start to emulate their bullshit.

As a semi-wealthy trans woman myself, I have to be very cautious of falling down this rabbit hole. Especially since I've been a transphobic, misogynist, racist Gamergate piece of shit in the past, before my transition. It takes a lot of humility and level-headedness.
