TWEETS OF NOTE

  • (@MelissaTweets) When this transgender trend ends, there will be so many mutilated men and women who lost their childhoods and life experiences. That will never be reported. It will just fade into obsolescence like so many other failed progressive ideas. Tweet.
  • (@McAllisterDen) Men are told that their sexual feelings are abusive, that their aggressive impulses are a threat to all women, that they shouldn’t have men-only spaces. They live under the tyranny of feminism and it’s wrong. Men need to be set free to be masculine, to be themselves, to be happy. Tweet.
