18 for tattoos. 18 for implants. Age 6 for sex change?

Lou Reed's mournful Walk on the Wild Side was about real people who were living an edgy -- and miserable -- life in Andy Warhol's New York. Recorded 50 years ago it was an insight into a depravity and decadence that was foreign to most Americans.

Five decades later, liberals are trying to mainstream that lifestyle into America. Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll meets deep dark depression, excessive misery.

In Florida, Republicans are fighting it. A great many Democrats side with them.

Yahoo reported to its disbelief, "Only 52% of Democrats oppose Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' policy."

Of course, Yahoo refuses to call the law by its name: Parental Rights In Education. The law stops teachers from discussing their sex lives to kindergarteners.

The media is losing the narrative.

The Yahoo story said, "What may be more unexpected is that the new survey of 1,618 U.S. adults, which was conducted from March 31 to April 4, found that nearly a quarter of Democrats (24%) also think it should be illegal for 'teachers or other school personnel to discuss sexual orientation or gender identity when teaching children in kindergarten through grade three,' despite weeks of objections and outrage from party leaders and activists."

By objections, Yahoo means misinformation. The law indeed makes it illegal for kindergarten teachers to discuss sex with kids.

Yahoo reported, "Overall, just 27% of Americans say discussions of sexual orientation or gender identity should be legal in K-3 classrooms — while nearly half (49% for sexual orientation, 48% for gender identity) say they should be illegal."

Now you know why Biden appointed pedophile-friendly Ketanji Jackson to the Supreme Court. Like gay marriage, the court will someday soon legislate the requirement that schools teach kindergarteners about transgendering, homosexuality and whatever other form of sex the LGBT crowd is pushing this week.

This is crazy.

An American political party wants to turn boys into girls and girls into boys for the fun of it.

Going after children is wrong. Holly can shave his legs and become a she if he wants. He's an adult.

But minors should not be given the choice. If you cannot consent to sex until age 18 -- if you cannot get a tattoo until you are 18 -- if you cannot get a boob job until you are 18 -- why are 6-year-olds allowed to begin transitioning sexes years before they hit puberty?

Those age limits vary from state to state. Florida allows tattoos at 16. But there seems to be no age limit on transgendering.

Enter Republican Randy Fine. He is a member of Florida's House of Representatives.

Fine tweeted, "I've had enough. Next session, I will shepherd legislation to make it illegal to provide drugs or surgery to a minor for 'gender assignment.' Will make it felony child abuse punishable by prison/loss of medical license. This legislation would not affect mental counseling.

"If an adult wants to self-mutilate in pursuit of the fiction they can defy G-d and science, more power to them -- as they don't expect me to pay for it. But no child should be put in the position of making life-altering decisions before they are of the age of majority.

"I can say I’m a porcupine, but that doesn't make it so. It is time to dispense with this fantasy making  women's sports a joke and our schools into a cesspool. I've taken on Common Core, university corruption, and school board lawbreaking. And won every time. This is next."

His proposal follows the same line of reasoning that won't let children get tattoos, get boob jobs or engage in intercourse: They are just too young to make these decisions.

Let kids be kids. 


  1. The law HAS to draw a line. Is 18 old enough to make the decisions you talked about? Probably not. But for Otto, this all comes back to VOTING AGE, DRINKING AGE, AND SOLDIER AGE.. Tie those three together - the AREN’T, now - and restore some sanity. The LibCommies will propose voting rights at 16. Mark my fooking words.

  2. “Let kids be kids”


  3. When Obamacare was passed kids were defined as being under 26 yrs old. Kids having their cake and eating it too won't last long I hope.

  4. Republican Utah Gov. Spencer Cox was caught on camera telling middle and high school students his “preferred pronouns” — a concept created by transgender activists to help convince people they can choose the sex they “identify” with.
    Cox recently vetoed a GOP-led measure that would ban males from playing in female sports, saying he tries to “err of the side of compassion.” However, the state legislature had enough votes to override Cox’s veto.

    Before and after his election, Cox has been rather vocal in his support for the LGBTQ+ community,

    1. cox is proof that the talent pool for Trump's next administration still needs to be careful drawing from the states.

    2. Cox is anti-woman.

      Here's a good video: What is a woman?

  5. When I was in grade school, I hated girls. Didn’t make me gay or want to be a girl. The liberals are SICK.

    Fine sounds fine. Maybe he can move up in Florida politics when DeSantis moves on to the national stage in the coming years.

    1. SL , you are too kind . Perverted is what I had in mind.

    2. I too when grade school hated girls and now an Curmudgeon Emeritus I hate girls again... There is a good reason women my age are single/divorced. Dating at my age is shopping at the local thrift store for the least dirty and smelly object you intend to buy.

  6. children should be allowed to stay in the Garden of Eden
    as long as possible. Instead the Dems want to nuke it..

    1. Nicely put.

      The child birth film in sixth grade traumatized me for life.

    2. Well said indeed Doug.

      We didn’t see that film til senior year in high school.

    3. Yes, SL, sixth grade was too young for that.

  7. On this off-the-charts subject, words fail.

  8. This is remarkably hard to believe. It appears that the media and many, if not most, leftists are approaching insanity. Is it possible that Trump Derangement Syndrome is a lifelong affliction for some, with no cure available??

    While Trump today is much less a target of this derangement, the insanity it produces continues to flourish. If Dems continue in this direction the party will implode by year end. The world would be a better place…..

  9. Somebody at Insty once said letting the Lefties turn the country into the Weimar Republic was the only way to get the people mad enough to change things, to which Glenn said remember how that turned out.

    I guess we're about to see. Not that many people have a homosexual relative or friend, but a lot of people have kids.

    Now you know why Biden appointed pedophile-friendly Ketanji Jackson to the Supreme Court.

    I thought it was for a vote to overturn his impeachment.

  10. What happened to all the Christian and Social Democrats in 1933 Germany?

    Be careful of that for which you wish, you may get it.

  11. Until you can demonstrate to my satisfaction that you are able and willing to teach my children reading, writing, and arithmetic -- which is not the case today -- don't you DARE try to convince me that telling them about your weird sex life is a good idea.

  12. At this point, age of consent for most anything should be raised to 25 due to the adult children living with or off their parents. I also support requiring proof of income before engaging in sex that may result in a child. If your not XX + XY, have an orgy.

  13. One thing that I didn't know until not long ago is that the weirdos in Walk on the wild side were real people, all acquantances of Lou Reed, in the Andy Warhol's entourage.
    A complex character, Lou Reed.
