Coming across melodic death metal has been one of my favorite memories. It started out with At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity and In Flames. There are some great stuff in the genre and this is among one of the first songs i have been exposed to, sometime in 2002 or 2003,

Hours Passed In Exile Lyrics

As i got more involved in the metal subgenres the more i really enjoy the intense but melodic music, here’s a few youtube videos of that example (pretty rough/raw folk metal which has some symphonic, melodic black/death in it as well, pretty heavy insane stuff though so listen at your own risk there)
As I Die… – Lemuria (you could skip to 3:24 if you wish)
A Day of Reckoning by Lemuria (the amazing melodic solo comes around 4 minutes) though the rest of (both songs) it was pretty good at first, but gets pretty monotonous or tiring so those may not be the best examples, but every once in a while listening to those 2 songs are pretty epic in it’s own way but not meant to be overplayed unless of course you just go for the solos.

I actually find that listening to the more melodic, but intense stuff is better and still has some good solos in it as well…

And there are some pretty insane long songs too that are really good.

Folk music mixed with melodic death metal, and then there’s progressive melodic death metal,

(lyrics in video)

Other than some repeating lyrics throughout this song (which gets a little tedious at times) clocks around 16 minutes! If you hear it the first few times it’s amazing and even when writing this i’m playing back this song and it’s still epic. Yeah, so anyway along with my last post, My Introduction (as a Christian and metalhead) i decided to post something like this because, well i felt like it.

Or because i don’t want to be talking about controversial stuff all the time like i have been doing for the past 8 months, or a year…

Also, if you are interested, i have a last.fm profile, http://www.last.fm/user/spineshank155

Interesting enough, i wouldn’t call myself a Christian by any means. Even though on a rare occasion i might end up in church and despite me growing up as a Christian i wouldn’t really consider myself as one, since i don’t really go to church all the time or i really follow Jesus. Well really hard to put it into words really, but bottom line is i’m a major introvert. Like literally i prefer to be alone. I of course talk to some people but i’m not as social as i used to be, well at least outside of the internet, but even on the internet i have been feeling a bit reserved for quite awhile (which is another subject).

It could be because i like a lot of metal but i was introverted before i even heard the first Metallica album. But well as i (sorta) present myself as a Christian but a very introverted one at that (i don’t really come off as a Christian or really tell people this either), and neither i do with listening to metal. Now you probably may wonder, some people may still live in the dark ages when rock and roll was considered satanic in the religious sector and i’m sure some people still do. But now there’s metal with mindless screaming. Yahoo!!

(Before you go clicky on all the youtube videos, be warned there is satanic stuff going on in there….)

(..not really)

Anyway enough of the jokes with metal and…

Ok, that one was really bad.. but it’s supposed to be a Friday the 13th parody (along with Friday by Rebecca Black). I thought it was funny, but some people might not think so. Too much violence there.. so here is a realistic serious metal song.

One of my favorites, Mors Principium Est (description of the band name may come soon as i’m interested in what it means, never bothered to look it up) so in all seriousness, the reason i did this blog is i’m genuinely curious of what Christians think of metal music (pay no attention to the first 2 videos as they were most likely bad jokes). Oh here are the lyrics to the song, Monster In Me.

I know there are some Christian bands like Living Sacrifice, Antester (sp?), and there’s a Christian rock band, Skillet which has gained a lot of media attention. I told myself i would only post 3 videos to avoid any lagging but here’s two more tracks, i’ve been on a melodic death metal frenzy lately.

So in hopes of getting some feedback on this one i wonder how many Christians out there like metal, i know of a few that has.. i was on a forum site dedicated to Christians who like metal, but it got too complicated and too much drama ensued from the site. So i left the site. Also if this post is laggy, let me know because it’s probably because there’s too many videos on it. I get email notifications when someone comments too but it may take a day or two to accept the comments (mostly due to the fact this blog thingy is posting controversial stuff that makes people foam at the mouth).

no-transgenders

Like a snowball effect the hatred against transgenders continue to rise among Americans. It’s really not that surprising considering the amount of backlash goes on during the daily basis such as what is going on with these kids, 4 convicted of kidnapping and torturing a special needs man which has received death threats already.

Scott Pruitt Leads Opposition Against Transgender People in America
Family Rejection Leaves Too Many Transgender Americans Homeless
Transgender people skip food and drink to avoid using public bathrooms
Transgender Rights Are Under Attack in These 11 States
In Mass., transgender patients decry hostility over medical care
Detroit man accused of shooting transgender woman in the face
former town councilor and father-of-two, 46, is found dead alongside 21-year-old transgender woman
Transgender girl, 11, ‘shot in the head with BB gun at school after five-month bullying campaign’
Transgender woman sentenced to prison for sex acts with teen boys in Torrance

And a couple of my favorites,

Transgender Killer Moved from Female Prison after Sex with Inmates
A Parent’s Guide To Not Transing The Kids

In those sea of links (yes i often get this in my newsfeeds) and it’s just a bit disconcerting to say the least. Mostly the fact that there is fight between whether or not it’s ok to let kids transition or not. Transgender visibility in the media is definitely increasing and it has not changed my perception. There’s a lot of hate against transgenders and a few links above including the trans killer having sex with female inmates and sure, if you read the article carefully and do the research they are not transgender at all. But the general public doesn’t care. All it takes is the fact the guy claimed he was transgender to take advantage of the situation and he was pretty successful at it too, to get people riled up.

Many people do not trust transgenders for these reasons and already there’s a lot of hate and violence against transgenders. If they are not driven to suicide someone will try to murder them. But like anything, transgender activists will put the blame on the media and the public for having such an irrational fear or hate for transgenders. Not only that transgender activism continues to lump intersex people as transgender. Parents know this and that should be the only medical intervention for children to decide, with adult supervision of course. More than likely this is where it all started and broadened to include children who exhibit gender dysphoria. Whatever the case is the other link, a parent’s guide to not transing the kids shows that people are growing impatient that someone like Kenneth Zucker will come around to help raise their kids so they do not have to fear their life. Such as the link where an 11 year old transgender kid got shot in the head with a BB gun. The insanity of allowing a child to transition and then is subjected to constant bullying which leads to destructive harm. It just won’t end either, even though that article may have a happy ending it just ends with a bunch of people supporting the kid through the grief which gives the kid a moment of relief. But it won’t stop. It will get worse for these people when they get involved in relationships and while you can do background checks on people, just because they are nice and not dangerous to be around doesn’t mean something bad will happen.

When i was a young Christian, i’ve seen other Christians do harmful things to others and couldn’t understand it. Later on in life i have noticed that like with anything else, Christianity is just a label. I have seen Christians listen to satanic music such as Deicide (though i know many that are too afraid to even touch that subject) and later on came to the conclusion that it really doesn’t matter who you are, what religion you have you still have to just watch out for everyone. Nowadays not much does surprise me, as a metalhead who happens to be a Christian, i see that others are similar. But that’s another subject altogether (which may end up in the next blog, metal music and Christianity).

Back to the subject at hand, in reality the transgender activism is self destructing, take a look at this article, (I am Jazz) Doll based on transgender teen to debut at New York Toy Fair and already the comments are flooding in on this topic (on Facebook mostly) ranging from transgenders are mentally ill to commenting on the doll, “is the private parts detachable?”. I have even seen a couple that mention if the doll commits suicide. This is how people see transgenders. And still the transgender activists insist that children be allowed to choose their gender (or live as the gender they feel that they are, because they are born that way). These people do not really have the best interest in our children’s future and continue to force feed American parents that transing your kids is the only way to prevent the suicide risk. Which has been proven time and again that is just false. Sure, parents who support their trans kids are more likely to have a lower suicide risk but in order to avoid the outside interference you have to find a location that largely supports transgenders and then move. That isn’t an option for many people and including parents with children, battling the finances and keeping the job they are happy with already.

But what the transgender activism wants is to change society. They most likely don’t think that parents should move. The parents should be ‘educating the neighbors and schools’. And well, trying to convince people of intersex people (which should be a different story) is difficult enough, people still consider intersex to be ‘freaks of nature’. The hate continues but again this damages the ability for intersex people to live normally because while the gender dysphoria gets all the attention, the intersex subject gets tucked away quietly but they too are being discriminated against due to the transgender label. Again as always, it’s recommended that parents learn the dangers of allowing their children to transition and to find another way. As parents are coming together to compare notes on how to help their kids, there is already another way and there may just be other people like Kenneth Zucker out there who actively helps children overcome their confusion about gender.

You Should Watch the BBC’s Controversial Documentary on the Gender-Dysphoria Researcher Kenneth Zucker (Updated)

States Stand in Line to Enact Anti-Transgender Bathroom Bills

With Kenneth Zucker’s documentary it really should be easier for parents to understand the dangers of transgender ideology is, especially with anti-transgender bathroom bills popping up everywhere (even though that some in that list has already been shut down). However it doesn’t stop the states from trying and North Carolina shows that it can happen. In which besides in the previous post about transgender violence skyrocketing it’s especially dangerous for children. Already parents are standing up to, Time for parents to resist transgender activism all this is doing for transgenders is making it worse for them. As i have posted before, Men hunt transgender woman through streets of New Orleans.

Matt Walsh responds to this as well, If your lifestyle is none of my business, stop demanding that I celebrate it in which, if you look at Matt Walsh’s FaceBook page you may run into a transgender activist somewhere on the road. It would be that easy to tell transgender activists, if your private parts are none of my business then why are you making it my business by continuing to call males, women and demanding people call them women? It’s really a conundrum of sorts, basically much of what transgender activists do to try to push their agenda affects others. Transgender activists do not want anyone with gender dysphoria cured so naturally they would disregard Kenneth Zucker’s treatment of curing kids who presumably have gender dysphoria. Now if most of these people who genuinely have gender dysphoria has a genetic anomaly, like if males are XX and females are XY. Any other deviation would be considered an anomaly. Intersex is considered a genetic anomaly. So if people with gender dysphoria has a genetic anomaly, wouldn’t they be considered as intersex? Not as transgender. Anyone with genetic anomalies should be treated with respect of course like anyone else who identifies as transgender, even though you never have to support the lifestyle surrounding it, which includes calling males, women. And that shouldn’t be considered mean or hateful, but with transgender activism with their one tracked mind, “males can be women too” is confusion and continue to be shown that transgenders are being shown as mentally ill.

Most people are brought up to understand that males are men and females are women. This is where transgender violence and suicide rates skyrockets. Besides discrimination, rejection and constant hatred against transgenders, the often response from transgender activism is, “well if you were not so hateful, transgenders would not be as suicidal, but you continue to mock and murder our brothers and sisters” which is the often response. As if it was easy as turning on a lightswitch we wouldn’t be having this discussion. Some people are against transgender ideology because, well of the violence and suicide risks. Another is, misgendering males and females. You wouldn’t look at a cat and say, that’s a dog, nor the cat would be a dog although animals have been known to mimic other animals. It doesn’t mean they really are that animal they are mimicking in which is the reason some people have gender dysphoria is because they are closely mimicking the opposite gender and then, think they are that gender. That is what is so dangerous about transgender ideology is that if one thinks they are the opposite gender, therefore they are one. Transgender activism not only tries to shut down Kenneth Zucker’s ideas on how gender dysphoria should be addressed, but totally disregard and even disrespect detransitioners. They claim that 0.4% of transgenders detransition (that percentage may be lower, according to the transgender activists) although i do not believe that it’s only 0.4% as there are plenty of people with gender dysphoria who choose to not transition, Desperate for help. Transgender looking for alternatives. yet you can see in this quote,

I’ve been desperate for help with the transgender thing but the places I’ve been to aren’t helping.

I tried asking /r/asktransgender for help but I feel like they’re trying to keep me in transition like this is going to solve everything.

The transgender activism is forcing anyone with gender dysphoria to go through transitioning. They do not care whether these people are suicidal, it’s like they want them to transition and if they attempt suicide, get beaten or killed it’s their fuel to try to gain more transgender rights. This is a constant struggle when the transgender activism won’t even listen to the wishes of people. I have even seen a transgender activist mention that children are not the parents property. The parents are legal guardians that wants what is best for the child so if they do not want their child to grow up as a transgender, they will do what they can to avoid that. It would be far more simple if professionals offer a treatment, similar to Kenneth Zucker that works with the children in order to cure them or alleviate their gender dysphoria. Another transgender activist mentioned that Kenneth Zucker is a fraud, all the children he cured never had gender dysphoria. Typical, with the detransitoners in the same, they were never transgender. Or they once had gender dysphoria or misdiagnosed as gender dysphoric. It’s really any excuse that these activists can dish out in order to validate their cause. Bottom line, if it’s anyone with gender dysphoria that is mentally ill, it’s the activists and professionals that blindly think that transitioning is the answer (and THE ONLY ANSWER) for gender dysphoria. Transgender activism does not know right from wrong, most likely because they either lived in a dysfunctional family, orphans or rejected from family, in whatever case.. they did not get effective parental guidance.

It’s really not right to force a lifestyle onto people who do not agree with it. Transgenders may be born with gender dysphoria, but it is not an excuse or justifies being forced into a mindset that transitioning is the only answer and people need to stop looking for them and accept that people are ‘born in the wrong body’ and that ‘males are women too’. It’s coercion and manipulation. Oh, and more transgender ideology forced on children, Damaging Trangender Curriculum it never ends.

13-kenneth-zucker-w190-h190

Back in about 2015, Kenneth Zucker’s clinic was falsely accused and shut down, A False Accusation Helped Bring Down Kenneth Zucker, a Controversial Sex Researcher recently came out with a documentary, BBC’s Controversial Documentary on the Gender-Dysphoria Researcher Kenneth Zucker

Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best? (video only works in the UK)

If you can find the documentary, by torrent or by any other way get your hands on it because it shows there is again, a cure for gender dysphoria. It is a very good alternative to allowing your child to become transgender. Activists are upset that, Transgender activists concerned about film this film could increase discrimination against transgender people which is most likely true, but they are already facing high rates of discrimination overall. Even in the documentary, transgender activists do not like alternative therapy. In their mindset transitioning is the only cure/treatment and people need to live with it. They are also headstrung on allowing children to be transgender. But, it is not the best course of action. In the video, and by transgender activism it’s, let your child be transition or they die. Already people are scared to really speak up and really debate the transgender issue, more importantly transgender children. Recently Nat Geo showed a photo and released a magazine dedicated to transgender children. Already ACP, Pediatricians condemn National Geographic over 9-year-old ‘trans’ child on January cover has stated, College of Pediatricians Calls Transgender Ideology ‘Child Abuse’ is child abuse

With the constant negativity surrounding transgenders (only 22% support transgender rights in America) and transgender children we need people like Kenneth Zucker treating gender dysphoria in children properly. He takes a non invasive approach, “developmentally-informed therapy” and none of the kids hated going to see Dr. Zucker, in fact they thought it was quite pleasant. Nothing reparative or electroshocking here like so many transgenders fear. Those days are generally in the past although there may be some people who still practice conversion therapy today, just not in clinics. More like in a parents basement. Whatever the case is, conversion therapy doesn’t work. Transitioning doesn’t work either seeing how high the suicide rates are for transgenders. And the sad part is the transgender activism thinks they are actually helping out those with gender dysphoria but really it’s just a means to an end. In the documentary, 90% of those who went to Dr. Zucker for treatment came out cured. That’s really a big difference from say 50-60% success rate for transitioning treatments. Those that would not be, if going by the 1.4 million transgender statistics that would be, 140,000 Americans who will continue to struggle with gender dysphoria. But, if these 140,000 Americans were analyzed.. better treatments could work. But this greatly depends if any of them are intersex (which is a completely different condition and should not be associated with transgenders) and whether the survey is accurate.

So that 140,000 number could be different and could be very less or more depending on the circumstances. Whatever the case is 90% would not have to worry about being discriminated against. They would live out as their assigned birth gender and not have to worry about additional dating issues and having the proper documentation along with housing, job and family rejection. But the transgender activism won’t have it. We have to watch out for these types of people who are constantly one track minded telling people if they do not transition or if they do not let their children transition they will die. They will feel hopeless, deserted, depressed, anxiety and suicidal. As proven time and time again, transgenders will be depressed and suicidal regardless if they were allowed to be transgender. So the best method we have at this point is Kenneth Zucker’s form of treatment. With a 90% success rate over a 50-60%, that’s a 30-40% better chance with far better results. Already children have 90% chance of growing out of their gender dysphoria with Kenneth Zucker, that success rate will be higher. However, with the transgender activism running rampant (especially in Canada) that 90% chance of growing out will be reduced. By indulging in the child’s fantasy of being the wrong gender, they will grow up thinking that is their actual gender and go through with being transgender with hormone therapy.

As mentioned by others, transgender ideology is child abuse and it’s a mental illness that should be treated, not encouraged. However, transgender activists will continue to try to stop that and continue to fight for transgender rights, however it is the expense of children who have gender dysphoria that have a 40% suicide risk. Kenneth Zucker’s treatment is the most idealistic, ethical and logical method. We need more ethical doctors like Kenneth who is not afraid to stand up for what is right and moral. He does not willingly put children through harm and has a 90% success rate of curing gender dysphoria. Others like Walt Heyer and other ex-transgender people share a similar story that children should not be subjected to being transgender. Sorry transgender activists, but you do not have the right to meddle with children and force parents into accepting that their child is transgender. Transgender activists limit any alternative methods in gender dysphoria treatments and claim that transitioning is the only solution. That is called manipulation. I pray that more doctors such as Kenneth Zucker will continue to properly treat children who have gender dysphoria and we need better methods so that 100% of those that experience gender dysphoria can be treated and will eliminate or reduce discrimination.

It seems as if this topic does not have an end and already the transgender activism has been misinforming people causing a battle on both sides with no resolving the issue, is it ok for a male to become a woman? The answer, logically would be no and you would go in that particular direction. We have seen how much can happen for those who decide to live in a transgender lifestyle, Coroner: Transgender woman shot multiple times
Transgender Community Faces ‘Attacks on Humanity’ in Six More States and despite them thinking that this would cause Texas’s economy to dwindle, people can only ban so much before it messes with their lifestyle. If you take away too many jobs, especially if you are a business you start losing money. Case in point, say Target closes shop in NC, they would lose all that money that they could have been making had they didn’t close their stores. Musicians that refuse to play in a certain state will lose any money it could have made in that state. While certainly closing stores down or concerts, it would damage the economy in that area for a time being but at the sake of petty talk, this is what is happening when people support transgender ideology.

Already transgender activism has destroyed lives and now is bent on destroying our way of living. And people are giving them the ammo to do further damage. Before Caitlyn Jenner and the bathroom issue, there was no harm done other than destroyed families. Everything was ok for the most part. But now with the transgender limelight which has sparked transgender rights and also now anti-transgender laws it is now damaging the economy. Sure you “could” blame the conservatives for writing such inane laws, but the only ones destroying the economy are those who are ‘boycotting’ said states or cities writing such anti-transgender laws. And in some cases, it’s the entire LGBT community and it’s because there is too much “i’ll sue you for not respecting the LGBT and baking that cake or endorsing same sex laws”. Most gay people i know don’t care about marriage, it’s a pointless way of showing how much you love someone and i tend to agree with that. Marriage is a sacred oath and unless you can’t live without that person in which i never experienced so my views on marriage is, i don’t need to get married.

Recently a transgender is trying to sue a Catholic hospital, Trans Woman Sues To Force Catholic Hospital To Remove Her Healthy Uterus
Despite having a religious belief to not accommodate transgenders, the hospital is not equipped to deal with transgenders. Meaning they do not provide adequate services to effectively work on transgenders. It’s like going to an auto part store and asking for a computer mouse. You go to the correct place and nowadays there is Google. It’s pretty simple to find what you are looking for and it sounds like this transgender purposely went to a Catholic Hospital knowing well enough that they do not provide services for transgenders. But it doesn’t stop the woman from trying. By the way the man is really a woman, so the article’s headline is wrong it’s “transgender man”. The lawsuit won’t stick, and even if it does and the Hospital gets sued, it shows there is either an agenda at work or the lawsuit is staged to scare other hospitals to get ‘educated on transgenders’ so they can provide treatment for them. So keep an eye on this story, because logically and legally it can only go one way, there isn’t a chance that this lawsuit will go through to the courts. IF it does make its way to the courts, something isn’t right… but a slight chance it may happen but it’ll end with the Catholic Hospital wining, if not yes.. something is amiss and that’s not a good sign.

Here’s some more links about the transgender insanity.

‘Damaging’ transgender curriculum is about to invade 7-year-olds’ classrooms in the UK
Govt Study Says Male And Female Toilet Signs ‘Discriminate’ Against Transgender People

This one is particularly disturbing,
FOX COMEDY FEATURES 6YO ‘TRANS’ BOY WEARING BONDAGE GAG

Chances are that the transgender community will deny this and maybe they will because if this doesn’t upset people, i don’t think anything will. Most who are already against the transgender movement will most likely be upset over this as it’ll just fuel more to the fire and additional anti-transgender laws will come up. Eventually it will be illegal for children to transition (i had probably mentioned this before) but just wait until this show will have everyone talking about more than The Walking Dead. It’s only going to work one way and it won’t be what the transgender activism thinks.

Oh and if you live in California, you probably had your tax dollars going to this, California murder convict becomes first U.S. inmate to have state-funded sex reassignment surgery

car-coldShould you warm up your car Part I

I recently posted about whether you should warm up your car and i have found a few additional things, a few of them actually prove that warming it up will not damage it. (warning, contains explicit language)

But also too, modern cars don’t have oil problems like what some people say (your oil is like maple syrup). It may be true if you are not using the recommended oil for your car (where the oil is thicker) in which case you already may be doing damage to it if the car isn’t designed for the oil you are using.

So oil circulating through the engine is definitely not an issue, as the guy explained in this video, if you don’t have oil circulating through your engine by that time your engine is in trouble. But what he doesn’t explain is what the cold oil is doing to the engine. The oil needs to circulate (among other engine components, like the power steering, coolant) all these things need to work and for me to be able to drive and accelerate at a decent pace, i need at least 1.7x (1,700 RPMs) rpms. Most of the time it’s around 2x rpms. So waiting 30 seconds or waiting until the engine rpms settle isn’t enough for me. He doesn’t really exceed 1.5x (2x at the most) and most others will say don’t exceed 3x. Not only that he has a turbocharged engine. It may be best to just drive it cold and it won’t hurt it anyway.

One of the more major problems is that being in 32°F or below your defroster doesn’t work very well in the cold. It works much better when it’s warmed up, but it’ll take longer for it to work if you are driving the car and sometimes it won’t work right at all because all the air that is coming out of the vents can’t counteract the fog/frost forming on the windshield. I believe someone has said in a comment in a video or article somewhere to hold your breath while driving or breathe slowly. Why would anyone do this for the convenience of having a warm defroster is beyond me. While it’s true, less idling cars in the winter will reduce emissions and gas waste as the first video i linked proves, it only takes around 40 seconds to warm the car up so it’s not running too rich, driving off prematurely isn’t always the best. Some cars do not work right when they are cold and especially a critical component like the brakes or being able to accelerate moderately to get onto the highway is ideal. You need to get the car up to the speed traffic is moving on the highway and more times than not i see people not accelerating fast enough which causes either a slowdown in traffic or it causes the people on the on ramp to slow down and then it makes it more difficult to get onto the highway or tollway. In some driver ed courses they want you to gun it, at least 3-4x on the tachometer. I only need like i said 1.7x to 2x and on the highway i need at least 2.5x (up to 3x) but most of the time i can deal with 2-2.2x early in the morning as there is less traffic.

Much of the more common reasons why you shouldn’t warm up your car, is that people will start their car, with the key in the ignition and need to leave the doors unlocked so they can get back in,

which can invite thieves. Which is very true, which is why near the end of that video they recommend that you get a remote start. I do have one on mine, one that allows you to monitor whether someone is attempting to get into the car which then would signal to the remote and shut it down, causing the alarm to go off. This may be because my remote start is basically a feature of my alarm system. So if anyone is messing with my car, either kicking the tires or trying to push the car (rocking it) it may set off the alarm sensor and that includes trying opening the car door when it’s locked (which will automatically set off the alarm and the car will shut off). Also you need to have the key otherwise the car will shut off if you attempt to put it in gear.

It’s generally best to wait with the car, but as long as you can see it out your window to see if something is going on that’s ok too (and this is with the remote start). If you don’t have a remote start, then it’s best to wait with the car, it’ll be cold but again if you at least wait until the defrosters are working which is generally 2-4 minutes depending on the temp outside you may be better to drive off at this point. Some people won’t wait and just drive off despite there is no heat which will generally help the car warm up faster. If you don’t think your car is worth a remote start (or an alarm system), it’s definitely a good idea to consider getting a different car (and it’s not worth putting a remote start in if the car is on it’s last legs or you constantly run into engine issues) because you need to have the defroster working and everything mechanically sound before taking off. Some cars do not shift properly in the cold or they shift harder putting more wear and tear on the transmission and also it gives a chance for belts and other engine components to warm up adequately before putting a load on it. So bottom line, warming your car up is ideal in the winter so you are safer when on the road. Stuff breaks when they are at their most extreme so if something were to break it would most likely break when you are pulling out of the driveway with an engine that has only warmed up for 30 seconds.

..really what were these parents expecting when they put their child on a magazine cover?

‘They’ve started a thread about me, (describing me) as a horrible and abusive parent who is using my child for fame and fortune, and obviously I have a twisted sexual deviancy issues to make my boy act like a girl,’ Debi said.

‘They found information (about our family) and put it out there. People later commented, “Yeah, she’s definitely one who needs to be cyberbullied until she commits suicide”.

‘It’s gone from, “You’re an abusive mom and people should call child protective services,” to “You should be killed immediately — the only way your kids will be safe is if you are exterminated”.’

Death threats is not new when it comes to transgender topics. Some parents who have transgender children may never speak of it, generally have to move to a different area to avoid neighbors or classmates from finding out (if they already haven’t  been found out and receiving death threats), even then once this child becomes a teen and we all know how some teens are sexuality active, so the secret will come out eventually. And seeing how people reacted to the National Geographic article, one has to wonder this story is not about a brave transgender but one asking for trouble. Other organizations such as American Family Association has spoken about it and even has a petition. This is the same story, with Target and generally any other article supporting transgender ideology in children.

This article or the response to National Geographic’s cover is really showing how parents really need to stop and think about what they are doing to their family and children. It is not recommended to allow your child to choose their gender or, Gender Ideology Harms Children

“Rates of suicide are 20 times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBQT–affirming countries.”

Which shows, despite transgender acceptance anyone transgender is still likely to commit suicide. This is exactly why it is extremely dangerous for parents to allow experts to experiment on children, transitioning is an experiment. It is still a debate in the medical field, even though they don’t really tell you that. But for most parents, they know all this already so they prevent transgender ideology on their children which is why articles and magazines (such as the recent National Geographic magazine) is getting the transgender spot light. There has already been reports on transgender children, including special needs children who identify as transgender successfully committing suicide. It would be wise to discontinue transitioning as a form of treatment and for the most part let the kids be kids. They don’t know any better and teaching them right from wrong is the parent’s job, not the job of experts or the transgender community. Transgender children has not existed since the 1990s and it’s only now that there is an apparent problem and it’s the adults that are deciding the fate of these children.

With the recent National Geographic magazine and the response from the public, some of it is very harsh shows that it is dangerous to be transgender and children should not be subjected to this, but some people is allowing transitioning in children to continue.

Snowed car.jpg

The long tired debate of whether you should warm up your car in frigid weather continues and there’s many articles saying you shouldn’t including this youtube video,

Articles and videos such as that saying you only have to wait 30 seconds if you have a car that has fuel injection (not ones with carburetors), but you only have to wait 30 seconds in any climate, according to some of these people.In the youtube video, it shows how a cold engine behaves, it’s running too rich and the excess gas is removing oil from the cylinder walls. Now i’m not claiming that they are wrong, but it seems counterintuitive that they would recommend you put on a load while extra fuel is being dumped into the cylinder chambers. They do not address that everything is spinning faster when you are accelerating (like belts, the engine components and transmission), so what is going on when you are driving off in a car that hasn’t been warmed up for a bit? It can’t be good. If you are driving off in a cold car the cold air would also keep the engine colder and it would be difficult to get the car up to a decent temperature.

It’s the same with these people that think that 3,000 mile oil changes are too soon. While it’s true that some modern cars don’t need it, not every car has an oil life monitor to give the owner an idea when to get an oil change. But that’s a different topic all together.

The best recommendation is to see what the manual states. Not only that you do need to have the defroster working so allowing the car to warm up 2-5 minutes is ideal. Even if you remove the snow or ice from the windows, they can still fog up or some additional snow may form if it’s already snowing outside. So having a properly working defroster is a must when driving. If it takes your car longer for the defroster to work, perhaps let the car warm up longer if needed. Allowing your car to warm up in cold weather is much safer. Engine components work better and if there is a problem, it’ll usually display on the dashboard, like the battery won’t charge or there is a problem with the ABS and other factors that the cold would impact on. It wouldn’t be good if you are taking a semi lengthy trip (like 30 minutes or more) only to find out the alternator crapped out upon the car starting up and the car is using the reserves in the battery as the alternator is the primary source of the vehicle’s power. Though the alternator or some other component could fail at any point, if the car needs oil or brake fluid you need to allow the car to warm up to detect whether there is a vital fluid in need of replenishment.

There are also engine block heaters, at least for those who do not own a garage, and storing the car in the garage during cold climates. Doesn’t do much when you are at work but the same applies as if you do not have a garage. Some people say that warming up your car is a waste of gas, you really shouldn’t need more than 7 minutes but some people like to be able to jump into a warm car (like having a remote start), but it is no way detrimental to the engine life unless of course the engine was poorly maintained, leaking or burning oil. According to these people that only take 30 seconds to warm up a car in cold weather it doesn’t harm the engine by driving off that soon and if that’s the case, warming it up won’t hurt it either. Most people who warm up their cars to get the heater working won’t change their habits, let alone those who are dead set that if you drive off 30 seconds after startup will have engine failures. With more car manufactures putting in remote starts, you might as well let it warm up for a few minutes, hop in.. get everything set up for the drive like the radio, seat and mirror settings and drive off.

Obviously warming up a car for 15+ minutes is a waste of gas and doesn’t really do anything, it’s not going to change those who wants to be in a hot car when they get in though, but seriously.. anything over 7 minutes to me is just overkill. Sometimes if i am driving and giving someone a ride and they are not ready in 5 minutes (after 5 minutes of warm up time, or whenever the engine temp gauge starts moving), i’ll shut the car off and wait until they are ready.

ng-sexualizing-children

(Edit: I didn’t notice this before but notice how this child is holding their crotch. Whatever the intention is, most people are going to think that transgender activism are sexualizing children. Besides the fact that pose is very inappropriate.)

Children should not be considering what gender they should or think they should be. As already mentioned in my previous post that 54% of transgenders are likely to attempt suicide. And already children who identify as transgender are suicidal already. Some have already committed suicide.

But that doesn’t stop National Geographic from jumping on the gender bandwagon. http://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2017/01/editors-note-gender/

And if that’s not already enough you can already tell that the child is male. Transgender activism is already backfiring, especially with the most recent survey (in my last post) that transgender violence is worse with the media attention. Putting transgenders on the National Geographic is going to continue ramping up the violence against transgenders, more suicides and the sad part is that they feel that they could change societies minds on the subject if more children come out as transgender. It doesn’t work. Many people i have talked to on the subject either are completely unaware, don’t seem to have an opinion/don’t care or is extremely hateful towards transgenders. And that’s one reason the violence against transgenders is so high.

Not to mention anti-transgender people are now coordinating attacks against transgender suicides such as this one, Trump Trolls Cheer Trans Woman’s Suicide Note
A transgender woman just committed suicide. Trump supporters respond in the worst way possible

If you think transgender children are safe from this, parents with transgender children are often under this sort of attack from people. Here’s another article on the transgender survey, Here’s a Huge New Survey of Transgender Americans and more info on the transgender children subject, The Link Between Autism and Trans Identity , Daily Mail columnist says ‘powerful transgender lobby’ is threatening ‘normal children’ which shows that autistic children who identify as transgender is not protected and despite the parents being supportive, the end result was the same, suicide by cop.

The way professionals is handling this problem is unacceptable. They know well that transgenders are widely being discriminated against and that the lifespan of transgenders is short, average is about 30 years. Yet they continue to tell parents that their children is transgender and they should accept that. That is not the answer. Parents would not allow their child to walk into a forest with dangerous animals so why would they allow their child to choose their gender? But the transgender activism doesn’t care. If they did, they wouldn’t stand for children to choose their own gender but they are the ones pushing the ideal, even though society actively targets transgenders. They just will not quit and that continues to increase the violence against transgenders. If it was 4% of transgenders only being discriminated it would be understandable that people be properly educated. But this is a huge huge mess. This is shoveling snow with a spoon. Transgender violence will not vanish overnight, in a few years or even in 10 years. This is not like black equality whatsoever. Black people had a chance because they were physically born that way. People are not trusting that transgenders are telling the truth they are actually transgender nor believe whatever science is shown by professionals. That’s not going to change for a long time.

The overwhelming support of transgender people (for them to live as the gender/sex they wish) will not help. It may help to a certain extent like the survey says but reality shows otherwise that transgenders are targeted. It’s only going to get worse the more transgender activism tries to push. It’s like the lyrics to a Machine Head song,

The more the sense of ignorance
The more intense is the pain

Block – Machine Head

Transgender activism and professionals do not simply understand what they are doing and that is their greatest downfall, they know people do not like transgenders, they know that transgenders are suicidal, they know the high violence of transgenders but it doesn’t seem like they care much. They seem to use that to try to force more people to accept their lifestyle (oh and then claim it’s not a lifestyle, they’re born that way), but that’s not stopping the violence much and has actually increased the suicide risk. It’s going to get a whole lot worse for transgenders in the near future. Transgenders have a big problem and since they put their faith into professionals so much that they really need to challenge professionals in the treatment they are providing. But i talked to a few of these people and transgenders would still want to be transgender even if there was a magic pill.

There’s really no helping these people unless professionals get their act together but as for transgender children. This should not exist. Professionals are harming children by doing so and the recent article on National Geographic shows that these people have little regard for child safety. Just let the kids be kids and listen to ex transgenders. They already went through the whole ordeal and they are the people parents should be listening to. Not a transgender activist who wants to see the transgender population increase in hopes to create more safe spaces with transgenders. But that’s not going to happen for a long time. I will repeat, it will get a whole lot worse for transgenders in the future. Statistics is proving that to be a reality that it won’t get any better, no matter what transgender activists say. Often times what they say isn’t proof of reality. If reading comments on various articles on transgender topics doesn’t get the idea that there is a lot of hate and total rejection towards transgenders then there is really no going forward here in dealing with this problem.

Not only that, transgender activists flip out over articles such as this. Especially the ones on Twitter. But there needs to be another option here and not the selfish acts by the activism.
