    Firefighters. Get out your notebooks and #2 pencils

    You probably remember how we told you awhile back that NYC was going to start fining people for not referring to transgendered people with the right pronoun.
    That was just one of the many strange stories we have seen over the past few months highlighted by Target’s backwards decision to let people use whichever bathroom or changing room that they feel most comfortable in.
    Now, New York City is back at it again.
    This time, they are forcing firefighters to take sensitivity training courses on the subject.

    From The Daily Caller:
    New York City firefighters must take a “Trans 101” course aimed at teaching employees the best ways to treat transgender employees and coworkers.

    A city official said the Tuesday course teaches city employees how to be courteous to their transgender coworkers and explains what LGBTQI stands for, according to the New York Post. The city Commission for Human Rights started the two-hour course back in March.

    In the course, firefighters learn about using correct pronouns when addressing a transgender and what words are not acceptable to use. The course also teaches what “gender identity” and “gender expression” are and how to tell the difference between the two. “Trans 101″ encourages attendees to ask transgenders what pronoun they want to be addressed with.
    You think that maybe firefighters have some more important things to worry about than using the right pronoun to identify transgendered people?

    Like I don’t know, fighting fires and saving lives?

    Let’s also not forget that we are talking about less than half of one percent of the population.

    This is just another example of how PC culture and red tape can get in the way of common sense.

    'Sir! I'm here to save you from the fire!'

    'I'll have you know I'm not a man!'

    'Whatever you are, do you want to be rescued or not? It's getting hot!'

    'Only if you address me by a proper title!'

    'Fine! Lady please come with me!'

    'I do not identify as a lady! I'm not budging until I am addressed the right way!'

    'OK, let me try this: zir, zie, hir, hier, ve, vier, please come with me!'

    'NO still wrong!'

    'LISTEN YOU MISERABLE TWAT, THIS PLACE IS GOING TO BURN DOWN AND YOU WITH IT IF YOU DON'T COME WITH ME!'

    'OK, I'll come...'

    'You identify as a twat?'

    'yes...'

          Speaking of asswipes controlling information to control the peasants, is that why trump revoked the press credentials from several major news outlets?

          and I have to thank you for that (misspelled) reference to that obscure Saul Alinsky, whom I have never heard of. I had to go look him up. He's been dead over 40 years, I guess that's how I missed it. The tea party values his ideas so much that it gives his book on organizing to its leaders. They must be trying to control the peasants also. You must be a bit older than me, or a teabagger. I will try to download his book and check it out.

            I'm offended, because I'm not transgender I don't get to pick my pronoun?

              Indeed. I will be attending this 8/18, and expect that to be my forced retirement date as well. From the feedback I've gotten from guys who have attended already, this article barely even touches on the absurdity of it.

                Just wait until a body has to be identified by physical structure and DNA and they call a she a he or visa-versa!
                I am not armed out of fear of who's in front of me.
                I am armed out of love of those behind me.

                  How could a liberal socialist like you not know who saul alinsky was?
                  Seriously? My misspelling his name( which i couldn't care less about) is a big deal? At least I know who that liberal douche radical was .
                  You don't even know who wrote the book that liberals have used to achieve their socialistic goals for decades.
                  You are even ignorant in not knowing who your poltical mentors follow.
                  Comparing the tea party, who are so radical as to believe in the GASP, Constitution is hysterical.
                  He's been admired by modern Democrats, like Hillary and Obama and helped form their strategies.
                  You really need to learn something from somewhere other than Steven Colbert.
                  Here's another name to look up. Another wonderful leader of the liberal douchery. He's still alive so that makes him more relevant to you i guess.
                  I hope i spell his name right so you can wiki him more easily.
                  Bill Ayers.

                  I'm sure I'm older than you. I know I'm much wiser, educated, experience and honest than you, because you really are an ignoramus loud mouthed douche, but it's not saying much.
                  I've enjoyed schooling you. even if it's just to help others here laugh at you more.
                  You do realize that now most here that have bothered reading your socilist dribble think you're a tool right?
                  Or are you too delusional to realize it?

                  Tell me again how daddy reacted when you voted for Ronald Reagan!
                  When you were growing up did you call Sheldon Silver Uncle Shelly, and sit on his knee as he taught your Daddy how to extort money from people and sell political favors?
                  After all, it's the Socialist way

                    Guys i would appreciate if we could refocus on the downward spiral a once great department is in. Plenty of time to settle your debate in the parking lot of Freeport at 20 paces.

                    (FYI dueling at freeport is only good to go if there is an RO there to supervisor)

                    On second thought, your argument is slightly less depressing, carry on.

                      Cool!
                      Dueling is okay by me. I seriously doubt Bernie owns a gun.

                        Can I just come right out and call someone an asshole here without being banned?

                        Not that I have anyone in particular in mind at the moment, just asking.

                            I never heard of him. He is a bit obscure, but i did find a few interviews on youtube to listen to. he had very noble motives, helping folks who were not as well off as he was. And he found out how to accomplish his goals, which is more than i can say for all the folks on this board always crying about the unSAFE act. You might not like Alinsky, although i cant see why, but you have to admit he knew how to get what he went about getting.

                            Seriously, could you share what it is about him that gets you so riled up?

                            As i said, the teaparty gives out his book to their leaders, so evidently they admire him also.

                            Ah, where to begin, with this stream of consciousness rant...

                            You might be older than me, but I have been around long enough to observe that most folks who go around bragging about how educated, wise, and experienced they are, are most likely none of those things. Brothers who possess those qualities project them with their demeanor and actions, they need no self promotion. And if you dont have a proper rebuttal of facts to statements posted by other folks, you can always just insult them and call them names. I wouldnt be going out on much of a limb to venture a guess that you are a Trump supporter.

                            I have enjoyed the "schooling" and have indeed learned quite a bit about the false notions, misconceptions, and myopic, xenophobic views that my neighbors can hold. For example, I grew up in queens and practically everyone i ever met, as well as all my relatives, know the value of a union job. They would always strive to make some connection or ask for a word to be put in for them to get joined up and hired. I never encountered an anti-union sentiment before coming to LIF, and we know the same crew is here. I get an education about human nature in general and long island brothers specifically everyday reading these posts.

                            My father thought i was crazy when i voted for Reagan. When he fired all those air traffic controllers, especially after being a shop steward for SAG in Hollywood years before, my father said "see, i told you about that asshole, he doesnt give a shit about families". Remember, at that time, nobody thought that he would pull that draconian, anti-worker shit.
                            I didnt know Shelly Silver, he was from the jewish lower east side, and i was from an italian neighborhood in queens.
                            That "selling political favors" is how politics worked for two centuries now. Dont be so naive. Preet just criminalized what has been going on since the days of Tammany and Boss Tweed.

                            Mine for yours. Post up a photo and i will reply in kind, rifle, pistol, shotgun, your choice. Give me a three digit number and i will write it on a paper in the photo to prove its not from anywhere online.
