I don’t find that. I’m not far-left myself but the far-left people

You are very left.

I know tend to have high intelligence.

Many of us do.

The far-right tend to act like a flock of sheep.

That is not true, the right never encourages thinking, that is one of its strongest points, and that is the reason why they believe in "live and let live", because they are not monolithic in thinking they sometimes are a little disorganized compared to the left that does more or less fall in line with the group-think crowd.

They regurgitate a set of beliefs they were told ranging from climate to election integrity to EVs to issues like this.

Which are all true and are all concerning issues, the left says, "This is not true, don't listen to the facts, listen to me because I am smarter than you." Extremely condescending and explains why the right is less trusting of the left.

Extraordinary conformity and lack of free-thinking. 

Another debunked myth, more and more people are switching to the right BECAUSE they value free-thinkers and frown upon personal attacks because of it.

I suppose it’s better that they are led given their inadequacy but like the politician I quoted, they are absolutely useless in discussions. Just not up to it .

Well, that sentiment goes both ways.

Why do all far-left types sound so alike? We know they usually have low intelligence but they are so predictable.

Must have a deep, dark problem

Well, that is correct, you try and engage with them, and the moment you have a different point of view when it comes to the environment, gender, and race. EV, COVID, and politics, they either call you names or chastise you, mock you, and "claim" that they are better than you in every capacity, that prompts conservatives to not even want to engage with them because their conversations tend to be more of a bully-type nature, "I'm right and don't dispute it."

Exactly, they are "TRANS"... not women, they are trans women.

Or, in other words, men.

If an archaeologist of the future digs up “their” bones they will positively, and correctly, identify them as male.

French far-right politician Marion Marechal after her win posted on X: "So a man has won Best Actress. Progress for the left means the erasure of women and mothers."

It’s the changing rooms. It’s always the changing rooms. And toilets. They must want to get in there themselves.

A bit of bodywork and a paint job doesn't transform a Beetle into a 911 either. The bones of the thing remain as the DNA determines. Believing otherwise is delusional.

Bones are a secondary sex characteristic, so yes, there are people that will be able to fool you on even this.

A trans person is someone going through a transition.

No. Cosmetic changes to mask a deeper, darker problem.

When an event becomes irrelevant, they lead to fame whoring as a last resort. There is no prestige in Cannes anymore. Anyone with millions of Instagram followers can walk the red carpet regardless of their cinematic contributions.

the 52-year-old Spanish actor -- who lived as a man until she was 46 -- plays a Mexican drug trafficker

Edit: "until he was 46."

Fixed it for you.

Truth.

French far-right politician Marion Marechal after her win posted on X: "So a man has won Best Actress. Progress for the left means the erasure of women and mothers."

Gascon, through her lawyer, told AFP: "We need to stop such comments."

Read that again.

"We need to stop such comments."

If that's not a call for dictatorial and tyrannical censorship, I don't know what is.

Marechal is right. The Best Actress award was given to a man. There is nothing wrong with stating that undeniable truth. There is everything wrong with trying to censor it and "filing a complaint" over it.

It's bad enough that the "trans movement" is all about men barging into women's spaces, and mocking and demeaning womanhood and motherhood.

Even worse that they're so dictatorial and tyrannical about it -- and then have the nerve to claim that THEY are the ones who (according to this "actress") are "suffering."

Enough of this deranged nonsense. If you're a man who thinks he's a woman or wants to pretend to be one, then fine -- go do it in your own private life.

But stop trying to force the rest of the world to buy into your delusion!

When will this nonsense stop? Enough already.

"Being trans is unimportant. A trans person is someone going through a transition. Once they have transitioned, that's it. They are what they are," she said.

Exactly, they are "TRANS"... not women, they are trans women.
