And having good taste and good manners has nothing to do with being PC.

This has nothing to do with me being "offended".

 

SURE it does, ham!

 

This news offended your sense of "traditional values".

 

Ya see dude, that whole thing works BOTH ways, and NOT only just to those who YOU think are motivated to be "offended" by their "political correctness".

 

(...but of course as usual, you folks who lean right are unable to see that within yourselves, and believe this sort of thing is only the domain of those who lean left)

In your world good taste and manners are people accepting this progressive ideology!

Well, evidently some you "traditionalists" around here were "offended" by this pretty much insignificant bit of news here, ham ol' boy!

 

And so there was THAT anyway, dude!

How Sweet It Is!

Evidently Jackie Gleason was not offended by diversity because his was the first TV musical variety show to have an integrated tap dance chorus line.

And with the June Taylor Dancers--Away we go....

In the waning days of my service as a cub scout, we had two teenage

girls from the neighborhood who acted as assistants to the den mother.

They were hotter than any fire the scouts could have built. And remember,

blue lives matter.

Once again, the Boy and Girl Scouts are not merging...only the Cub scouts. And why is it so upsetting to have them together for you guys? Are you afraid someone will get cooties? 

I remember from my Boy Scout days that we often referred to ourselves as "girl scouts."

Maybe it is time we got past these organizations for males and females.  My God, the USMC has female infantry officers.  The Army branch that I served in in Vietnam had 20% female officers in 2011.  Back then it was 100% male.  Probably higher now.

As a former Girl Scout, whose mother devoted herself to being a Girl Scout leader to teach and Lead young girls to a better life, I find your post not only insulting but just downright crude, vulgar and Un-American.

Also I find a number of posts that I've seen from you over the months to be demeaning and showing a lack of respect for girls and women, particularly ridiculing mature women.

You have a right to your opinions, and I also have a right to uphold respect for myself and all women.

Eventually they will have the little boys who are unsure of themselves go into the Girl Scouts for training.

 

Nah, they got the progressive school system for that.
