Bill Maher Rubs Their Noses in It: Following a Stunning Verdict in the Oberlin Case, SJWs Learn ‘There’s a Price to Pay’

On Friday, Bill Maher said social justice warriors are discovering that dumbness has consequences.

Dumbness = so-called political correctness.

Bill was discussing the story of Oberlin College.

Here’s what happened in Ohio, as per The Atlantic:

On November 9, 2016, three black students at Oberlin College made a late-afternoon trip to Gibson’s Bakery, a small, family-owned business near campus that has been serving the community at its present location since 1905. Like countless undergraduates of all races, classes, genders, and generations, they hoped to leave with alcohol but weren’t yet of age to purchase it legally.

A fake ID was produced and rejected.

In the moments that followed, Allyn Gibson, the owner’s son, would try to keep the fake ID, pursue the male student who had used it as he fled to the back of the store, chase him into the street yelling “Shoplifter!,” and detain him, even as the other students, who were women, attempted to intervene on behalf of their friend.

From The Daily Wire:

When police arrived, Gibson was being physically attacked by (Jonathan) Aladin and the two other students who accompanied him to the store – Cecelia Whettstone and Endia Lawrence.

All three students pleaded guilty. Aladin acknowledged race was not a factor in his treatment.

Back to TA:

A police report accused them of trying to shoplift two bottles of wine. Many classmates jumped to the conclusion that they’d been mistreated and launched protests almost immediately.

“Chants of ‘No justice, no peace’ reverberated across campus from early morning into late last night as hundreds of protesters lined West College Street, calling for a boycott of Gibson’s Bakery,” the student newspaper reported. “According to a flyer distributed by protesters, this incident was far from Gibson’s first instance of alleged racial bias.”

The boycott reportedly caused sizable damage to the business.

Fast-forward to Thursday, when the school was hit with $33 million in punitive damages.

Way to go, SJW’s.

Back to Bill, who offered this:

“Social justice warriors … are finally finding that maybe there’s a price to pay [for political correctness].”

“Political correctness” is an ironic term, of course, because it represents a very particular point of view which supports some things and condemns others — and it’s one which prefers the few over the many…which is the opposite of political.

NeverTrump conservative pundit Charlie Sykes told Bill he’s tired of it:

“I’m tired of the term ‘political correctness’. It’s like ‘performative wokeness.’ In our mono-culture, we have to find a way to humiliate, to drive people out that we disagree with, and I will tell you that there’s a huge backlash. … The folks on the Right were bailing on liberalism. … They’re basically saying that, ‘The Left wants to destroy you, they hate you, they want to take away your rights, they want to destroy your business.’ Unfortunately, you have anecdotes like this that make it that plausible.”

The host asked a good question:

“How do we get mainstream liberals to stand up to that faction?”

Bill’s long spoken against political correctness, and consistently championed free — that would be, offensive — speech (like here).

There was a time when Bill Maher was a particular opponent to conservatives. But given the Democratic Party’s move away from liberalism and further into rights-ripping leftism, he sometimes stands as a shouter of liberty-soaked reality against a cacophony of fascistic insanity.

Might he be someone who eventually Walks Away?

From the Herald Sun:

Gay New York hairdresser Brandon Straka was of the Left. Now he says it is exactly what he once opposed – thuggish, intolerant, race-obsessed, oppressive. So in a video that’s gone viral he says: “Walk away.”

Check out one of my favorite guys who walked away — Dave Rubin.

Thanks to social justice warrior goofiness, Gibson’s Bakery is walking away…with $33 million.

And Bill’s right — social justice has consequences. In this situation, perhaps it was actual justice.

Ben Rhodes, CNN and Others Purposely Fuel Pro-Iranian “False Flag” Conspiracy Theories After Tanker Attacks

Westlake Legal Group pomeo-iran-oil-620x351 Ben Rhodes, CNN and Others Purposely Fuel Pro-Iranian “False Flag” Conspiracy Theories After Tanker Attacks the washington post The New York Times Tanker Attacks Shameful Pro-Iran Politics Obama Bro mullahs Mike Pompeo media bias Iran Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats conspiracy theory CNN ben rhodes

Screengrab from https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/c/embed/fd11b6ef-1b58-41f2-87b2-875b602f09fa

Yesterday, I covered a tweet sent out by The Washington Post’s Beirut Bureau Chief in which she seemingly blamed President Trump for Iran’s recent aggression.

This comes in the wake of Iran attacking two tankers in the Strait of Hormuz.

There’s a lot wrong with that description, starting with the idea that we should “heed” warnings from a rogue state. You can read the full story is here.

Today, more media outlets decided to shame their profession with their coverage of the incident.

One of the things we’ve seen in response to what happened is liberals pushing “false flag” conspiracy theories, i.e. the suggestion that the U.S. and/or Saudi Arabia set this attack up to falsely blame the innocent Mullahs in Iran. You know, because famously isolationist Donald Trump wants to go to war with Iran or something. Makes sense, right?

Here’s Obama Bro Ben Rhodes doing that song and dance.

Wait just a second.

I thought we must always trust our intelligence agencies? I remember a time when any question of an intel assessment was tantamount to an “attack on our institutions,” yet here’s Rhodes saying we need an “international investigation” to determine what really happened. Does he not trust the honorable rank and file at the CIA? I’m getting whiplash from all the rule changes lately. Funny how things seem to shift depending on what partisan narrative is being pushed.

Rhodes is probably going to tell us fire can’t melt steel next. Of course, he’ll no doubt be given his usual space in The Washington Post over the coming days to bloviate instead of being called out for pushing conspiratorial nonsense.

It wasn’t just Rhodes though. Supposed “hard news” outlets also tacitly pushed the false flag narrative with headlines like these.

This is a game that the media only play with the Trump administration. Never in a million years would they have questioned an intelligence briefing from Hillary Clinton by describing her as “offering no evidence” for a claim. CNN does it here though for obvious reasons and you can read the comments to see just how whipped up they’ve got the crazies.

Notably, the U.S. government did release pictures and video showing Iranian boats removing a mine from the ship after CNN sent that tweet. So they did in fact provide evidence.

Not to be outdone, The New York Times got in on the act too.

Notice the language here. They say it “differed from the explanation of American officials who blamed Iran.” The clear insinuation there is that the U.S. government is lying and trying to falsely blame the Mullahs.

The problem is that nothing the ship’s operator says really “differs” as much as it simply provides a different context from a different vantage point. The operator, for example, says that the damage was above the waterline and that things were flying through the air. That’s not inconsistent with what Pompeo said. We have pictures of the mines placed above the waterline. It’s also likely that what was “flying through the air” was shrapnel from the explosion. Nothing else really makes sense as gunshots would have been heard if they were bullets.

The entire description that we are “blaming Iran” is typical pro-Mullah propaganda. We aren’t “blaming” them. We are saying they did it because they did it. That’s just reality. The video shows an Iranian gunboat along side the ship. The pictures show the mines on the boat in the exact position we see the Iranian gunboat removing an object from the side.

Here’s an idea. Instead of shilling for Iran non-stop, maybe these outlets could just accept the fact that Iran is a terrorist state? This is the kind of stuff they do regularly. They’ve been attacking boats in the gulf for a while now with little fanfare, never mind their escapades throughout the rest of the Middle East. This time, the flames got a little too big and it caught our attention.

We know what Iran is and it’s completely irresponsible for supposed journalistic outfits to purposely fuel “false flag” conspiracy theories just because they want to slap at Trump. Whoever wrote those tweets for CNN and the Times knew exactly what they were doing.

Another Pinhole In The Dike

Previously (here and here) I’ve opined that a move away from China by U.S. businesses might be in the offing. It looks like more pieces might be coming together for such a move. In a recent article over at American Thinker, Chriss Street writes

Just hours after Simon Rabinovitch, Asia editor for the Economist, claimed damage to global supply chains from the Sino-U.S. Trade War may be “irreversible” and push the world into recession, Bloomberg reported that an executive of Foxconn, Apple’s Taiwan-based primary assembly partner, has enough non-China capacity for all iPhone production.

This is huge. Although an interruption in avocados from Mexico is tolerable, stopping the flow of the latest iPhones to market would be seen as horrific in some quarters. Although Apple has not publicly indicated that a move away from China is in the works, the very idea that Apple has enough capacity elsewhere, puts paid to the cacophony of voices predicting catastrophic and irreversible damage to the markets.

Once again, a single data point isn’t indicative of any trend. However, it looks like the data points are starting to accumulate. How long before this pinhole is joined by others sufficient to collapse the dam? Stay tuned.

Dan Crenshaw Attacks Media Driven Myth That Trump Is Sending Kids to Interment Camps

Westlake Legal Group dan-crenshaw-capitol-SCREENSHOT-620x333 Dan Crenshaw Attacks Media Driven Myth That Trump Is Sending Kids to Interment Camps World war 2 republicans Politics military base Media Japanese immigrant children Front Page Stories Featured Story False Narrative donald trump democrats Dan Crenshaw concentration camps Allow Media Exception

I covered on Wednesday a headline from The Hill that featured news that President Donald Trump was sending kids to the same place Japanese people were sent for internment during World War 2.

This was an obviously false narrative to anyone remotely paying attention. The location is actually a military base where people live. You learn that’s happening because the migrant crisis that hte media likes to pretend doesn’t exist has seen an overflow of children who need a place to stay.

You also learn that Obama used this location for the same exact thing during his time a President.

Sadly, The Hill wasn’t the only one to use this narrative. The Daily Beast, Washington Post, and Time all jumped on the bandwagon to make it seem like Trump was the heartless migrant child-hating racist they’ve been telling us he was.

When Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw appeared on Fox News, he was asked about this ridiculously blatant attempt to drive a narrative and Crenshaw appropriately collapsed it on their heads.

Crenshaw was asked to respond to a Democrat lawmaker Judy Chu who carried the media’s narrative to Twitter and making it seem as if Trump was doing what was done to the Japanese decades ago. Crenshaw didn’t hold back.

“This might be one one of the dumbest comments we’ve ever seen,” said Crenshaw.

Crenshaw noted all the mainstream media outlets who jumped on the opportunity to sell a lie, including The Hill.

“The implication, of course, that they’re going for is that we’re putting people in concentration camps,” said Crenshaw. “Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. This is a military base.”

Crenshaw compared it to people saying that we can no longer have kids at Alcatraz because it used to be a place we put hardened criminals. It’s now a popular tourist attraction.

“It’s nonsense,” continued Crenshaw. “It’s used for something different now. It is not a concentration camp. It’s not even close to that.”

Crenshaw took aim directly at the media.

“Ya know, you can make your arguemnts without being so unbelievably dishonest, but they just can’t help themselves,” added Crenshaw. “How are we supposed to trust members of the media when they put out stories like this?”

Hong Kong Protests: China’s Kobayashi Maru

Hong Kong Protests: China’s Kobayashi Maru

On it’s face, the protests currently disrupting government operations in Hong Kong would seem to be a single issue event—extradition of “Hong Kongers,” to Mainland China for trials. There’s a lot more to it than that. The BBC has produced a nicely done explainer for those of us unfamiliar or not up to date on Hong Kong and its relationship with the People’s Republic of China. I highly recommend a quick scan before proceeding further.

By many accounts, it appears the local government in Hong Kong is losing or has outright lost control. Several days of protests, some violent have forced the legislature to temporarily stay proposed legislation that would allow the PRC government on the mainland to extradite. An online acquaintance and Red State plank owner gives some interesting perspective

Undergirding it all is real citizen and civil-society resistance.

The array of Hong Kong institutions giving ordinary citizens time and inspiration to take to the streets are the small businesses, the local bureaucracies, and the unions. The teachers union is supporting a strike. The transit union is supporting bus drivers who deliberately slow service in protest. The municipal subway is operating for free, allowing protesting citizens to shuttle away from arrest and toward confrontation with power as needed. Shopkeepers are giving out free water and aid to protestors and the injured. Local entrepreneurs are turning out with their employees and staff to defend their rights. 

The Communist Mandarins in Beijing can’t allow this to go on for long.

It will give the tottering authority of Carrie Lam and her government a short while longer to act. Then, when they fail, it will be time for the People’s Liberation Army garrison in Hong Kong to execute the core mission of the PLA since its founding: attacking its fellow Chinese.

Like aspiring the aspiring Star Fleet Officers undergoing “the Kobayashi Maru—no win simulation, the PRC leadership really has no good options. Hong Kong is a huge economic driver for them. The island is supposed to by treaty, have limited autonomy. Treaties are nice, but the real reason Beijing allows any autonomy at all, is to keep that revenue flowing.
Allowing too much autonomy abdicates government control.

If tanks show up in the streets, there will be an unintended consequence for the PRC government. Americans who are currently on the fence about tariffs will likely now come down on the President’s side. Even staunch opponents will likely stand mute on the issue to avoid the appearance of siding with a Government busily engaged in running its citizens over with tanks.

I have no doubt that this will accelerate the current trickle of business moves away from China. If it goes too far, President Trump will in all likelihood, direct punitive sanctions. If China’s Most Favored Nation trade status goes away, it’s game over for them.

AOC’s Spoxdude Tweets F-Bomb at Potential GOP Challenger Who Had the Audacity to Ask Her Highness a Question

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14). Screen grab via: @RealSaavedra.

Earlier this week, Red State‘s Brandon Morse wrote about an odd incident that happened this past Sunday involving Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14) and a potential Republican challenger for her Congressional seat.

A quick recap, via the NY Post:

US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez turned tail on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue to avoid a potential Republican challenger as they both marched in the National Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday, her political opponent said.

Talk-radio producer Rich Valdes told The Post that he tried to challenge the freshman Democratic congresswoman to a debate on the merits of capitalism versus socialism when he spotted her near West 47th Street.

But Ocasio-Cortez “cut her handshaking short, jerked her hand back and jetted to the other side of the street,” Valdes said.

“She literally ran!” he said.

“I thought this was a good time to try and get a response but I honestly only saw the back of her head as she trotted across the street.”

Valdes is an associate producer for Mark Levin’s show.

As it turns out, AOC’s spoxdude slammed Valdes for having the nerve to ask his boss a question. In a tweet he ended up deleting, Corbin Trent wrote:

The nerve! The “stalking” bit was a nice touch, too, and is right out of the AOC “sexissssm!” playbook. Remember this gem from 2018 (h/t: Brandon)?

AOC’s Justice Dems comrade Waleed Shahid tweeted out a show of support for Trent after reports surfaced of his meltdown:

For what it’s worth, Trent explained to the NY Post on Thursday why he deleted the tweet:

“I did indeed send that,” Trent admitted to The Post in a telephone interview Thursday.

“I did indeed delete it. It didn’t seem that helpful,” he said.

Trent said he didn’t regret the move, but rather “regrets that people chase people around.”

“I regret that so many people right from presidential candidates to right-wing commentators to random people that start organizations think that they’re entitled to people’s time. I think she’s spending a ton of time in the district talking about what she’s doing, talking about why she’s doing it and making a case for her policies,” Trent said.

Watch the video below, where Valdes crosses the street to get in line to talk to AOC. She runs almost immediately after to the other side.

Mark Levin DESTROYS Democrats and the Media Over Reaction To Trump’s Remarks

Westlake Legal Group mark-levin-620x349 Mark Levin DESTROYS Democrats and the Media Over Reaction To Trump’s Remarks President Trump Mark Levin Mainstream Media Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress Bill Clinton's reelection Bernie Sanders Allow Media Exception 2020

Yesterday, I posted about the hypocrisy and faux outrage from the mainstream media after Trump told George Stephanopoulos that he would listen to a foreigner who called with information about an opponent here.

Trump replied, “I think maybe you do both. I think you might want to listen. There’s nothing wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country, Norway, ‘Oh, we have information on your opponent,’ I think I’d want to hear it.”

His remarks ignited a firestorm. The media, and amazingly, even some Republicans, went after his remarks like sharks after chum while, of course, ignoring the irony of the situation.

Mark Levin joined Hannity on Thursday night to discuss the media’s hysterical, but completely predictable, response in only the way he can.

“Have you ever seen a dumber media in your life? I mean truly, a dumber media?” he began. “How would the president even know to turn something over to the FBI unless he accepted it and then read it? Accepted it and listened to it … and that is basically what he said.” He continued in his trademark fashion.

I would take a look at it. If it should go to the FBI, it should go to the FBI.

But you’ve made the point, let me underscore it. But look how upset they are. Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid for information. They paid for Russian information. It didn’t come to them. They had to manufacture it and pay for it.

And then contact the FBI? Would that be the FBI that sent spies into the Trump campaign and was leaking to the media?

You know, a little bit of history here. I seem to remember in the 1990s, the Red Chinese military poured millions into Bill Clinton’s reelection. Remember that, the Riady group and Johnny Chung and the rest? They were bringing bags of money into the DNC. Does anybody remember the media getting all worked up other than the L.A. Times? I don’t remember Nancy Pelosi getting worked up. They didn’t even appoint a special counsel to investigate.

Now that’s real interference. and we American people, we’re so stupid, we’re such plebes. We’re really supposed to believe that China wants Trump to win. So they’re going to give Trump information on Bernie Sanders. They would love Bernie Sanders to win. He’s a kindred spirit.

Or that Russia is really happy with the way Trump is treating them, so they’re going to give him information to defeat Kamala Harris or the Iranians or the North Koreans?

How stupid is that?

Or how about the Great Lion of the Senate, Ted Kennedy, who used surrogates to contact the KGB to try to defeat Ronald Reagan in his reelection in 1984.

And Nancy Pelosi. Who can forget Nancy Pelosi in 2007 undermining the Bush administration, running off to meet with the genocidal dictator, the father of the current genocidal dictator in Syria, undermining our national security? Who can remember the Democrat Speaker before that, Jim Wright, running off to Nicaragua to meet Ortega, another genocidal communist?

But for the praetorian guard media that protects the left, that protects big government, big centralized government, the American people can’t stand you and I’m going to tell you why. You are destroying freedom of the press. You make a mockery of yourselves.

Every time Donald Trump says something, you say it’s the end of the world. We’ve never seen anything like it.

You operate in a bubble in Washington, you operate in a bubble in New York. You have no comprehension of what is going on in the country.

The Iranians are taking out oil tankers. Not ours, but others. The Iranians are looking for war and what do we hear from the Code Pink left in the media?

That it’s John Bolton’s fault!

And that it’s the Secretary of State’s fault!

That it is the President of the United States’ fault! You’re pathetic, it’s a joke.

I can’t add to that, except to say I completely understand why Sean Hannity calls him “The Great One.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-12) had some choice words for Sen. Maj. Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) at her weekly press conference on Thursday. During the presser, she displayed a colorized “McConnell’s Graveyard” chart that displayed some of the bills that passed the House but had gotten little to no action in the Senate.

The Hill reports:

“Leader McConnell seems to take great pride in calling himself the ‘Grim Reaper,’ it’s part of his political campaign,” Pelosi said at the press conference. “It’s part of the pride he takes as leader of the Senate.”

“None of these things are going to pass,” she continued. “They’re not even going to be voted on.”

The poster depicted more than a dozen bills currently stalled in the Senate, including the Equality Act, which would codify nondiscrimination language protecting Americans on the basis of sex and gender identity in federal law, as well as the Violence Against Women Act.

Here’s video of Pelosi talking about the legislation below as well as the tweet version of the chart:

In an interview with Fox News‘s Laura Ingraham that evening, McConnell proudly embraced the “Grim Reaper” label, and explained why:

“She’s got it right,” McConnell said, referring to Pelosi. “She’s got it absolutely right. For the first time in my memory, I agree with Nancy Pelosi.”

“I am indeed the ‘Grim Reaper’ when it comes to the socialist agenda that they have been ginning up over the House with overwhelming Democratic support, and sending it over to America,” he added. “Things that would turn us into a country we have never been.”

[…]

McConnell told Ingraham he does not plan to approve any items that would move the country in a left-wing direction.

“This is full-bore socialism on the march in the House. As long as I’m the majority leader of the Senate, none of that stuff is going anywhere,” he said.

Watch McConnell’s response to Pelosi in the video clip below:

McConnell’s re-election campaign team got in on the act, too – by offering t-shirts of McConnell’s socialism graveyard:

The troll game is strong with the McConnell crew, y’all. Very strong.

Amazon Hits Back Hard at Joe Biden After he Criticizes Their Tax Payments

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-8-620x317 Amazon Hits Back Hard at Joe Biden After he Criticizes Their Tax Payments tax rates Reinvestment rebuttal Politics New York misleading Joe Biden Jeff Bezos Hit Hard Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story False Narrative democrats AOC amazon Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

I’m not sure what it is about Amazon and Democrat politicians, but perhaps Jeff Bezos should reconsider shamelessly shilling for left given their general distain for him and his company.

Most notably, the fresh faced Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ran Amazon out of New York, costing her constituents 25,000 new jobs and tens of billions in economic development. Why? Well, no one really knows given that Amazon already voluntarily bows to many of the left’s demands, i.e. a $15 minimum wage.

It’s never enough though.

Take this shot Joe Biden took at Amazon, for example.

While Trump is often called “economically” illiterate by the chattering class because he favors tariffs as leverage in negotiations, the Democrat party position on corporate taxes is truly economically stupid. It completely ignores the value of reinvestment.

Amazon spells that out in a hard hitting rebuke of Biden’s comments.

It’s not really a good look to get on the bad side of one of the left’s major boosters. Biden would have done well to think before sending out that tweet.

You see, there’s not actually any magic “big business” tax break that allows these companies to not pay taxes. They also aren’t actually paying less taxes than “firefighters and teachers.” Major corporations pay billions upon billions in payroll taxes no matter what, but in many cases, it makes more sense to reinvest money in new operations vs. hoarding that cash and paying taxes on it.

That’s what Amazon has done as they’ve rapidly expanded the last decade. Some might say that’s unfair but it’d be stupid and short sighted to eliminate such tax incentives. Reinvestments of this type are the major driver of economic growth in this country. They also lead directly to better jobs and higher wages as the market for employees becomes more competitive as a result.

There needs to be a return to common sense in our discussion of economics in this country. We can not continue to be the most prosperous nation on earth if we kowtow to false notions of “fairness” and the harmful calls of punishment pushed by the left. Biden deserved this slap down but he’s no different than Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, or Kamala Harris.

In the end, these corporations that spend most of their time donating to Democrats and fluffing liberal policies are going to learn a hard lesson if they don’t change course. The alligator is absolutely looking to eat them and they won’t be spared the public shaming.

You may have caught the viral video of Dion Cini’s skirmish with activist, writer, and thespian Indya Moore earlier this month.

Indya’s a man identifying as a woman.

Dion’s a man identifying as a Trump supporter.

Here’s what went down: Dion had his bicycle and a custom-made $250 Trump 2020 sign set up on the sidewalk across the street from Trump Tower. Indya’s not a fan, so when he walked by, he decided to stomp on Dion’s bendable sign and folded bike.

The dude then looked as if he was just gonna take off with the sign.

Apparently referencing the television show in which he acts — FX’s Pose — Indya strangely remarked something to the effect of, “You guys are fans of my show and we don’t want you to be fans.”

Dion sprung into action to retrieve his property, but Indya wouldn’t let go.

People got between ’em before things got too out of hand, but for a bit, there was a serious physical fight escalating. Dion got in some major shoves, and Indya knocked off the Trump man’s red MAGA visor.

Cops got involved.

Some online observers framed the incident as an assault on Indya by a — say it ain’t so — white man. A “deranged” one, that is:

JustJared called it an attack, despite acknowledging that Indya tried to commit theft.

Others thought JJ needed some correcting:

If you missed the melee, check it out now:



In the aftermath, Dion filed larceny charges.

Indya tweeted from the disposition of a persecuted minority:

“Thank you for loving my community, fighting for us, supporting us fight for ourselves and others who are experiencing an increase of oppression and violence under this current administration.”

Now Dion — who’s been regularly demonstrating in favor of Trump for the past two years — is speaking out about the dustup.

Enjoy his interview with The Daily Caller below. In it, he expresses his thoughts about the framing of the altercation and standing up for oneself.

As a point of interest, Indya’s been featured at RedState before. I covered his comments on gender and sex in February.

The article’s titled “Transgender TV Star: ‘If A Woman Has A Penis, Her Penis Is A Biologically Female Penis.’”

Biology, identity, and attraction appear to be a particular topic of interest on his part. For your education, here’s a January Twitter exchange including Indya and Grey’s Anatomy actress Sara Ramirez spotlighted by Pride.com for the purpose of sexual enlightenment:
