It's a Fowl Tale



In New London, CT, an accomplished woman who is, among other things, a cookbook author, keeps two hens as pets. They strayed into the neighbor's yard. Somehow the zoning officer became involved, and has issued an order the chickens must be gone.

The woman is now in court with a letter from a doctor supporting her position that the chickens are support animals. This would possibly allow her to keep the chickens if she were a tenant, but because she owns the house, it is not clear.

Meanwhile, she is about to make her annual move to Maine for the summer, and, as usual, is taking the chickens with her.

The Hill: Oregon counties vote to secede to Idaho | TheHill.

They join two other rural counties - Jefferson and Union - whose voters approved measures promoting a move to Idaho last year.

Union County? 🤨

Does Idaho want them?

The Idaho Legislature is intrigued but skeptical. I doubt that Congress would go along with the idea, as it would open a can of worms, with a discussion of D.C. statehood being something that Mitch McConnell wanting to avoid.

It's a five-bedroom, five-bath detached house with a two-car garage in a desirable neighborhood, and those are Canadian dollars. You couldn't find anything comparable for that price (U.S. $2.39 million) that close to downtown in San Francisco.

As J.K.Rowling put it: "War Is Peace/ Freedom Is Slavery/ Ignorance Is Strength/ The Penised Individual Who Raped You Is A Woman". Scottish Law will soon go completely woke, and make the law treat criminals in accordance to how they 'identify' themselves. New Scottish Law

What does it matter what category she is put in as long as the rapist gets prosecuted?

You do realize that JK and other TERFs object to trans women because they believe the completely ridiculous idea that ALL gay men are deviants and threats to society?

It matters because of the nature of male and female criminals. Men commit more crimes than women in general; Men commit vastly more crimes of violence than women; the crime of rape is almost exclusively committed by men. Allowing men charged to 'identify' as female obscures this, and puts women at risk. Also, if a man commits a rape, chooses to 'identify' as a woman, by law 'she' will have to be charged as a woman ! Where would 'she', penis-and-all, be sent to for punishment? Doesn't that put actual female prisoners at risk? Don't women in general get lighter jail sentences than men for the same crime?

And when did Rowling ever assert that 'all gay men are deviants and threats to society'?

You put identity in quotes. So that means you believe that trans woman are fake women, which they are not.

How many men have pretended to be women in order to get into women's spaces and hurt them? This is really not a thing. A trans woman is much more likely to be the victim of violence than to commit it. And men who want to hurt women don't have to pretend to be women to do that. They just do it.
