About the newest CLOG[edit]

How does being cis relate to his claims about pansexuality? π”Šπ”¬π”žπ”±-π”ˆπ”ͺ𝔭𝔒𝔯𝔬𝔯 𝔅𝔦𝔀𝔰 (𝔴𝔬𝔯𝔑𝔰 𝔬𝔣 𝔴𝔦𝔰𝔑𝔬π”ͺ/π”žπ” π”₯𝔦𝔒𝔳𝔒π”ͺ𝔒𝔫𝔱𝔰) 03:43, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

A couple months late on this, but basically, when cis people who mostly only associate with other cis people mention pansexuality *in general*, it's usually far off the mark because not having the experience of questioning your gender makes you more likely to think of stuff in terms of the gender binary (so something like "I like men, women, *and* transes" or "I'm into *literally everyone*" or "I want to fuck kitchen implements" rather than the proper definition of "gender doesn't affect attraction"). So seeing that the person writing a description that is Not Even Wrong is cis is basically just bemused confirmation bias of the "why would they not be" variety, kinda like finding out that a conservative also is a chickenhawk, or that a trans woman is also a lesbian furry communist hacker who plays mtg and has like 20 girlfriends.

Pauline Hanson[edit]

isn't the Aussie PM. Scott Morrison is. Just sayin'. LondonGrump (talk) 16:12, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Don Juan here, not logged in on phone, I meant to write "MP" but due to a typo I wrote "PM" instead.--2607:FB90:B44B:177:2003:852E:B54F:C72F (talk) 15:53, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Climate Change Denial[edit]

Crazy conservative propagandists claim that climate change data is forged as part of (what else?) a Marxist plot to sap our precious bodily fluids.

Why are there 3 trillion different far right blogs laid out like news sites like this. Is it because all conservatives are gullible morons? ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 17:08, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
That's the best explanation. I wish comments were enabled on that link so that I could drop some truth bombs. But then again, that site seems very obscure and insignificant, so maybe there's no need.Phantom666 (talk) 17:18, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Phantom666
Actual fake news, perhaps?--Don Juan (talk) 17:42, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
Half-assed, obviously fake sites like this are exactly what the term was created for, yes. Propagandists and opportunists outright making shit up for clicks and ideology. The trumpification of the term was inevitable. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 17:51, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
So, does this link belong in the Clog main page, or should it be forgotten like yesterday's toilet flush? The fraud that wrote it doesn't make one substantial point, nor does he even attempt to provide evidence for any of his claims. Like every other conservative website I've visited, rhetoric is far more important than facts.— Unsigned, by: phantom666 / talk / contribs
General rule for WIGO is "post if you feel like it". The only real concerns are purposefully non-factual content in non-clog wigos, and trolling. If you're not doing that, go ahead and post. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 19:52, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

It says that I have "insufficient permissions to edit", so I guess it's a moot point.Phantom666 (talk) 21:07, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Phantom666

Alt Right troll targets RW[edit]

Found a rabbithole of rightwing conspiracy theory madness. Everything from chemtrails to Christian apologetics. This weirdo has over thirty blogs, including one that seems to focus heavily on kitten videos from Twitter.

OMG that's some serious crazy there. And you say he's got over 30 blogs of this? Someone has too much time on their lil' pink paws. Pere Ubu (talk) 19:47, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

"America's First Non-Binary Person" decides he's just had too much porn[edit]

Found this from the Android SmartNews app, which I'm beginning to decide is seriously mis-named. He used to be a trans woman, then decided he was "America's first non-binary", now says "it's all a sham" and explicitly calls out Autogynephilia as the "cause". And the story is featured on the "news" page of The Heritage Foundation. Pere Ubu (talk) 19:31, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

I feel like non-binary people will be quite surprised to find that the concept only dates to 2016, given that it had already surpassed the nearly synonymous(and much older) term "genderqueer" in 2014. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 20:16, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
