You can't handle Pat Robertson's truth.

We are very serious with the journalism question we are asking here. Pat Robertson told his "viewers" on The 700 Club that "so much" of the time, transgender people are big fakers who just want to sneak into the wrong bathrooms so they can see everybody nakey, even though most people do not get nakey in public restrooms. They DO poop though.

Check out this statement, then we have a bone to pick with Pat Robertson:

I think it's just perfectly reasonable to say look, we don't want men going into women's bathrooms. We don't want predators going out where little girls are. We don't want voyeurs having free access to the women's locker rooms during games when they're changing clothes. [...]

I said on this program several years ago that if somebody, honest to goodness, feels that she is a woman trapped in a man's body, then she has a perfect right to take hormones and have surgery and change to what she really feels, and think somewhere along the way there was a biological mistake. But people like that are relatively rare. So much of this other stuff is put up, it’s put on and it’s just a fraud. And it’s one more opportunity for the left to demonstrate against some aggrievement they claim to have that doesn’t exist.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]What the fuck is Pat Robertson talking about? He did indeed say on his show that transgender people are very real and that sex changes are A-OK with him if a person for real feels like they were born in the wrong body. And, uh, that is what this whole story is about. Like, the WHOLE FUCKING CONTROVERSY is about people like that.

Perhaps Pat is under the impression that there is a marauding horde of fake transgenders out there, who are suddenly pretending to be a different gender because it's the cool thing the Kids These Days are doing, like Snapchat.

Or maybe he has some secret Grandpa Pat magic knowledge where he can tell whether a trans person is real and legitimately a "woman trapped in a man's body," or if it's a pervy trickster who just wants to watch ladies poop.

Or alternately, maybe he's had the harrowing experience of a real live lady following him in to the bathroom with her finger over her mouth like this ... they can try to see what Pat's face looks like when he's pinching loaves. DID THE FAKE-GENDERS DO THAT TO YOU, PAT?

Spoiler alert, it looks like this:

Oh Pat.

OK in all seriousness, the point is that Pat is correct on one point. Transgender people are not all that common! They are a very tiny minority, and laws like North Carolina HB 2 discriminate against them directly. As in, the people being hurt by these laws are the people who legit know they were born in the wrong body and are taking whatever steps they choose to live in accordance with their gender identities, INCLUDING doing number one's and number two's in the bathroom that feels more comfortable.

These laws have jackshit to do with men in the ladies' room, predators going after little girls, or voyeurs in lady locker rooms during WNBA games or whatever else Pat Robertson is afeared of. HOW MANY TIMES MUST WE SAY IT OMG?

Unless Pat knows something we don't know. Please tell us your secrets, Pat Robertson, we promise not to tell anybody!

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.

Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
