Here comes your slippery slope, compliments of Sandra Fluke. Ms. Fluke is, incomprehensively, still garnering media attention which says more about the media than about Sandra. Sandra is a self described Radical Feminist and strategist who feels; “it’s important, as an advocacy strategy, to pick the right battle at the right time.”
So, which battle does Sandra see as the right battle for the time?
We’ve removed barriers to openly gay folks serving in the military. Not enough. We’ve removed the barriers to women in combat. Not enough; at least not enough for Sandra. Sandra, picking the right battle at the right time, is campaigning for inclusion of transsexual individuals in the military. Feels like a slippery slope to me. Could the next issue for Sandra be getting the military to pay for sex change operations? Or, perhaps free Cosmopolitans!
But Sandra’s contribution does not stop there. To the Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community (LGBT) she adds the ‘questioning community’. I’m not exactly sure what that is, I may actually be part of that community as I’m questioning where this all ends. I can, however, take some comfort in the fact that Sandra is on the case campaigning for about 5 tenths of 1 percent of the population. Of the 5 tenths of 1 percent, my experience tells me that there is not going to be a lot of interest in military service from the transgender community. And…………media outlets pay attention? We can only hope they continue to do so, who better to expose moronic priorities than morons.
Of course I have a bit of spittle on myself here as well, as I’m writing about it, or her, or some combination of the two; I’ll have to question myself on that.
Sandra ‘call me’!!
