No one is trying to join the DAR, okay?
What makes them so sure they don't already have trans women in their club?
SIGH.........why? Just fucking why? What the hell does your pronounced bigotry accomplish? Who gives a rat's ass about what a bunch of old, wrinkled, white, insecure bitches are getting their panties in a bunch about?
Maybe worry about how to cope with, what I'm SURE is, your husbands infidelity.........probably with a trans female, or gay male (looking at you Matt Schlapp's wife).....
Life is short. We get maybe 80 years or so, if we are lucky. Who has time to waste on fretting over a policy in your special club that fails to ban trans people? It’s sad.
Being an inactive SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) I do have to say to those old biddies, BITE ME!
How many DAR ladies are also MAGA and celebrate their Confederate heritage?
The only other thing I knew about DAR was that Tammy Duckworth was/could be a member and this made people mad, so I already assumed that they were also TERFY in addition to (theoretically formerly) racist.
I was kinda squicked out that they have a chapter way the fuck out here, and the two women I know who are members are ardent fans of tfg. Fuck 'em.
If this is the thing that destroys DAR, then that's just one more way that trans women make the world a better place. Thank you, ladies!
I briefly looked into DAR because technically I'd qualify as a descendant of someone who fought and died in the American Revolution, and I noped out immediately. Looks like I made the right choice.
If I knew their motto was “God, Home, and Country,” I wouldn't have bother looking into it at all.
DAR transpanic is so far down on my list of shit-inducing freakouts I don't think there's even a bingo square for it.
We toyed with the idea of signing our daughter up for the DAR. She's eligible thanks to her Greatx5 grandpa Solomon Hairbold, who donated two beef cattle to the correct George in the winter of his discontent (and kept the receipts). You don't have to have served, you could just support the cause.
It would have been more of a fuck-you-very-much because she's Chinese but they haven't made a rule against adoption, and they have great scholarships. But then it turned out that you couldn't just show up and take the cash-- you had to show up and be nice to the white ladies and drink the damn tea and we don't believe in indoctrination like that. So we're just paying for her tuition our own selves.
The only DAR member I ever knew was a much older teacher colleague of mine.
She got no more respect from the kids than the rest of the faculty did. Her nickname among the 8th graders was "chicken legs". Happily I never did find out mine.
I've read that something like 30 million people are descended from the Mayflower folks.
My sister's daughters could qualify for the DAR via their dad's mom) yet I have never even seen an inkling of interest in the DAR by anyone.
All those eyerolls about that done by my sister and me (all our grandparents passed through Eliis Island in the 1880s or so) about that shit has had the desired result.
Isn't the DAR's only claim to fame is that in order to become a member you have to be a white woman, not a witch and have a direct relative that served in the Revolutionary War?
What purpose other than living off a dead relatives heritage, does this Coven serve the general public?
Why do I have to log-in every other day?
Genesis doesn't talk about America, a Revolution or daughters.
