The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

And I’m a Russian Wolfhound

Posted on | February 14, 2014 | 34 Comments

Just call me Borzoi. And I know what you’re thinking: “Borzoi? But you don’t look anything like a Russian wolfhound! As a matter of fact, on closer inspection, you seem to be a golden retriever.”


Yes, I am aware that those documents from the American Kennel Club — a notorious group of hatemongering breedists —  identify me as a so-called “pure bred” golden retriever, but in my heart, ever since I was a little puppy, I always knew I was different.

Finally, after years of struggle against oppression, I found the courage to be the dog I really was, and “came out” as a Russian wolfhound.

My brave struggle has continued and, while I know how much you admire my courageous trans-breed activism, it’s important that you not offend me like Piers Morgan offended Janet Mock:

There were several problems with the language Morgan used. For starters, he repeatedly asserted that Mock had formerly been a boy. He also said that Mock had surgery to become a woman. Mock was a woman long before she had the surgery she felt she needed to reflect that. Part of the fight for transgender rights and justice is a fight for self-determination: to be able to proclaim who you are without anyone else adding caveats.

Sure, I know what you’re thinking: “What’s wrong with stating a simple fact? Janet Mock was, indeed, born as a boy named Charles with XY chromosomes and Charles did, in fact, undergo surgery to remove his testicles and rearrange his genitalia to create a simulacrum of a vagina. Actually, the whole point of Janet Mock’s celebrity activism — the book contract, the TV interviews — is the experience of having undergone this transition process. Why, then, is Piers Morgan a transphobic bigot for making reference to these facts?”

You don’t understand. You’ll never understand our struggle for acceptance, our fight against discrimination and bigotry. While you can’t possibly understand, you are permitted to admire us for our heroic courage — but only in language we approve.

Janet Mock is a woman. And I’m a Russian wolfhound.

Get over it, haters.

    And you left out the part that you will have to pay for the expensive re-constructionist surgery to make that dog a Russian Wolf Hound.

    But be glad he just wants to be a Russian Wolf Hound. It can get way crazier…

    I think and REAL psychologist (and not some PC quack) would notice what’s going on when a transgender doesn’t like hearing about the actual gender he was born with.

    I feel sorry for you. There’s another layer of this that you just don’t understand. That fact that you’re a dog, with a collar, slavishly licking kibble off the floor and fetching the paper means simply that you’re trauma-bound to McCain.

    What? You say you like kibble? Bullshit! False Consciousness resulting from years of abuse. Fly! Be free!

    My wife’s 16-year-old Honda Civic has declared itself a Ferrari Testarossa. All those 10-year-old Nissans that refuse to lose drag races to it are marquist h8rs.

    It’s important to note that, once you pierce the h8erist agenda, and ignore the Don’t-Judge-Me-By-The-Genitalia-I-was-born-with crowd, Piers Morgan simply offends everyone.

    And this is the sort of mental derangement that the left applauds. Not surprising, since leftism is itself a mental disorder.

    For the transsexual party line, it is not enough that cisgender (normal) people humor the transsexual demand to be treated as their purported gender, with their preferred names, pronouns, lavatories, or whatever jail or prison section they want to be in, etc.
    Transsexuals demand that society retcon and revise the past so as to ratify their claimed “gender identity.” It’s not enough to say “she” or “her” in the present day. We have to retroactively edit birth certificates and official documents and go around pretending that whoever was always a girl and always had whatever genitals since time immemorial. They say “I’ve always been a girl” and everyone else must repeat it under pain of denunciation (and maybe even prosecution).
    It’s the principle of “We have always been at war with Eastasia” being applied to the realm of sick sexual gender identity politics.

    why the surgery if she wasn’t male? but not allowed by her to say/tell the truth if she doesn’t like it. she makes the rules, controls the language and all will obey. NARCISSISTIC WACKO BITCH

    Amazing that people will pay good money for surgery to get a simulacrum of a vagina when others are simply born one. Like Piers.

    The fact is that Mock is STILL biologically male. No amount of surgery, make-up, dress, or mannerism can EVER change that. Take a DNA sample from Mock before the surgery, after the surgery, after the hormone treatments, or whenever you wish, it will forever and always come back MALE.

    I don’t deny Mock has serious issues. But to say he is anything but a male is just a lie.

    Bad dog. No biscuit.

    I can understand males not wanting to be men. That explains at least three fourths of Congress and most of Nancy Pelosi’s male voters. Also every single rapist and wife beater, but I digress.

    I just wonder why go through the pain of pretending to be female? Surgery won’t make a male into a woman, any more than being barack’s errand boy will make John Boenher a man.

    I’m surprised the girls aren’t also dressed up like anime characters.

    Oh, and by the way a public-service announcement: don’t do an image search on “furry” with safe-search turned off.

    (If you thought it would return dogs, cats, and the occasional genitalia pic, you’d be totally, incredibly wrong.)

    Curious that the same people who push this “gender identity” nonsense laugh at the Doctrine of Transubstantiation.

    I still say that if the Republic survives another century, people 100 years from now will look on our time as one of mass hysteria.

    “War on fossil fuels, gay marriage, transsexual males play on women’s teams, transgenders use whatever restroom they want, Barack Obama – what the hell were they thinking?”

    I was tempted to do that search until I read the parenthetical. Given the depravity floating around these days, the better part of valor demands I not do that search.

    There’s an episode of CSI you could watch that is PG-13, doesn’t get too gross in explaining it, and it will tell you everything you want [and need] to know about this phenomenon.
