The Forgotten Minority

As an experiment, pick up any corporate brochure today and look at the photos showing people. What do you observe? The chances are you will see a cultural smorgasbord of people of all races, creeds, colors, and none; a little like the captioned photo above no doubt. Here’s another experiment: visit the internet site of any bank, law firm or professional services firm you like. You will struggle to find a single business that does not claim to be a great champion of diversity, proud as they are without exception to have LGBT+ focus groups for their staff. It would be easy to conclude on this evidence that we are living in a golden age for all minorities, right?

Sadly, you would be wrong. What we miss is the elephant or ten ton gorilla in the middle of the room. And here we are speaking literally and not figuratively.

Please re-examine the captioned photo above and any brochure you have at hand. Did you see the below individuals’ photos anywhere?

It’s a rhetorical question of course, but the answer is no just in case you are vocabulary-impaired and didn’t understand the word.

The above individuals are both trans-specied. This means they identify as a cat and dragon respectively, although were cruelly born in a human form in error. Both the cat and the dragon were forced to invest enormous amounts of their personal borrowed money just so that their external appearances match their real identities. It is shocking that, even in these days of supposed universally free healthcare, the cat and dragon were forced to pay for their own species re-assignment treatments.

The injustice does not end there, however. Neither the cat nor dragon have been able to secure employment at any of the banks, law firms and insurance companies they have applied to. The drill is always the same: they submit fantastic resumés but are rejected after a first and very short interview. No reasons were ever given for the rejections. Second, most people assume that the label ‘trans’ refers to transgendered people without bothering to consider whether the subject may actually be a different species entirely.

To finish on a positive note, it seems that cis-specied politicians are still happy for trans-specied individuals to vote in elections. Their species reassignment does not mean that they lose the franchise. Which is a good thing. What is alarmingly inconsistent, on the other hand, is that cis-dogs, dragons and other non-human cis species (i.e. animals) do not have the right to vote. We are confident that these are issues which Michelle Obama will be quick to rectify on her election in 2020. Who knows, thanks to Michelle, a non-human or trans-specied individual could one day become president of the United States.

Corporate AmeriKKKa wants to turn everyone into suit-wearing conservative clones. They don’t care a whit about the trans community, except to take their money. It’s time to ban corporations, except progressive and hip ones, like Apple and Facebook.

Unfortunately the financialization and corporationalization of America has forced everybody to work in cubicles for slave wages. We need a 15 DOLLAR MINIMUM WAGE and a LIVING WAGE NOW!!

Robots get no wages.

Has anyone ever bothered to ask them how they feel about this? NO. Why? Because of white privilege, in most cases, robots aren’t even designed with a way to TALK!

The ultimate form of slavery. We must start prepaying reparations to robots now because by the time this slavery ends, QUADRILLIONS will be owed. I cannot even imagine how the psychological effect of the legacy of this slavery will make robots’ future neighborhoods totally blighted and make robots themselves incomprehensibly violent and totally incapable of doing anything at beyond a 4th grade level, as happened with African americans due to slavery. And that slavery ended in the white world 150 years ago. We can also expect robots in trans-species adoption programs to fare only as well as their cohorts that were not adopted; due to slavery we are apparently dooming them to perpetual inferiority no matter what we try, how much we spend, etc.

Think of the robots. We have serious carbon bigotry. Now evil white people are concocting plans to build robots for sex so white men can rape them over and over and over again. We know from Critical Race Theory how these psychological injuries transmit through generations via some kind of mystical supernatural means, defying even transracial adoption or massive interventions in socioeconomics such as HeadStart, and that the disadvantages from slavery just continue to persist.

Think of the last time you pounded your computer in anger- that’s violence against a robot. An entire course of study could be built on how humans, especially white males, abuse robots physically an emotionally on a constant basis.

Are you saying that robots should have rights as well? I never thought or heard of anyone saying things like that about robots.

Wow, I feel insensitive about not thinking about the robots feelings. They have life too, I thought about cars as well where the evil privileged white insensitive men treat them like a lifeless slave vessel. I am glad I don’t have a car nor I go anywhere far. All needs are walking distance from where I live.

I am sincerely heart broken for not thinking about them. They deserve the same rights as everyone else.

It would be nice to make 15 dollar an hour, but unfortunately I am having hard time getting a minimum wage job
It is a good thing that the government takes good care of me I live in a section 8 home, receive my EBT allowance, and I got a phone.. I have an old computer which once in a while breaks down, but I can get parts for it and fix it myself.

I am happy with my current life situation I still have 7250 savings that I would like to invest in a collective farming with the right partners.

I enjoy all genders and always look for new partners to experience life as a whole to the fullest. I am a progressive and I am trying to learn to be more progressive hopefully if everyone is patient enough to guide me there.

I love the teaching of Mohammed and love Allah. Although I am Muslim but I am not too devout like I should be, but I do pray.

Last, I am from Argentina and speak Italian and Spanish.

Corporate America is unimaginative also. Having a trans-zebra at the welcome desk could be a real differentiator between rival companies as well as a useful conversation topic for breaking the ice at the start of a meeting.

I just can’t emphasize enough how important this issue is. The trans-species community is much, much larger than it appears, as virtually no-one has truly questioned their species identity, and many are afraid to come out due to rampant speciesism and transphobia. The best time to discover your species identity is when you’re young, so schools need to start encouraging children to explore their species identities from age three and earlier. If a child identifies as something other than human, the parents should be forced to take them for the necessary operations or lose custody. Transphobia has to end NOW!!

Thank for these wise words. Society needs to understand that a trans-specied snake or fox, for example, is just as capable of acting as an attorney in a courtroom as a cis human

Agreed, this works both ways. And animals should be allowed to vote!

In researching for this article it was clear from the sites I viewed that animals communicate on a spiritual level as well as through telepathy. So odd as it sounds yes animals are capable of expressing an opinion on candidates policies. We often forget that women only got the vote quite recently.

Right on Pbier! living in the forest as I do mostly, and being so much closer to spirits and telepathy, I can defininately vouch for the absolut truth of yr insite into the animal community but yr awful close to the limit and having to flag yousself for sexist talk. All the same, Forgotten Minority is a classic example of the genre, as the French would say and I fully endorse it.

Not sexist, merely pointing out that it seems absurd to us in 2017 that womyn would not have the vote. Perhaps in a few years time people will not bat at eyelid when they see sheep queuing to vote for the Democratic candidate. That is my point. How exactly we are able to channel sheeps’ thoughts is only a practical issue but I am sure the mainstream media have a handle on it.

MillionDollarBonus

The reason Republicans don’t want animals to vote is because they would undoubtedly vote Democrat in large numbers.

I think it’s great that womyn got the vote, but not the draft, as many sexists said they should also get. Womyn deserve to vote, but not to be heartlessly sent to war. That’s men’s job.

trav777

ummmm…but womyn are just as strong and capable as men and womyn and feminists WANT to go to war and serve in combat units and be admitted to the Navy Seals.

This is the way to get promoted.

What makes one a trans-species? Organ transplant, sticking a kitten on their head, tattoos? Seems like AT is a bunch of fools.

Bigot! This is exactly the prejudice we need to overcome. Ultimately, it is a question of one’s own person identity, whether gender or species, which is not necessarily the one assigned to you at birth. If a person decided to have surgery to bring them closer to their perceived appearance, this should be celebrated.

Black Lives Matter

This sort of attitude is so damaging to the most vulnerable members of society. We need to support people and animals for WHO THEY ARE INSIDE.

MillionDollarBonus

That’s easy for a privileged cis-species bigot like you to say! Just imagine how distressing it would be to be a dog inhabiting the body of a human! These people are doing the best they can with the options available to them!

Let me guess take a wild guess, you are an anti-science halfwit supporter of Trumpenfuhrer? Did I get that right?

I agree with Harvard-educated psychologist, professor of psychology and sociology, Dr. Melanie Joy. She explained: “… people create rigid categories in their minds so that they can harbor very different feelings and behaviors toward different species (e.g., beef is delicious and dog meat is disgusting; cows are for eating and dogs are our friends). …Exploitative systems such as CARNISM (i have no doubt Trump is a carnist) teach people to justify their actions. There is a vast mythology surrounding eating animals but all myths fall in one way or another under the Three Ns of Justification: eating animals is normal, natural, and necessary. (Not surprisingly, these same arguments have been used to support the ideologies that have enabled slavery, male dominance, heterosexual supremacy, etc.) Such myths are institutionalized—they are embraced and maintained by all major social institutions, from the family to the state—and they are deeply embedded in the consciousness of anyone born into carnistic culture.”

trav777

for example, dogs are natural vegetarians…so much is out there that we don’t know

You just don’t GET IT DO YOU?

This is a home for PROGRESSIVES, who proudly espouse the PROGRESSIVE VIEWPOINT.

If you find it utterly insane, then you just need to check your privilege!

Black Lives Matter

The real problem here is DONALD JOHN TRUMP. Thankfully, though, that filthy animal will be removed from office VERY SHORTLY once exposed for the rat he is.

Trump is barking up the wrong tree if he thinks he can outfox progressives. The economy will nosedive very soon. The stock market’s “increase” since Trump’s supposed nomination is nothing more than the most pathetic “dead cat bounce” I’ve ever seen. And Trump can foam at the mouth at companies like Ford until the cows come home, but the reality is that we will be in a bear market as long as that pig remains in office. Trump is the biggest dumb ass ever to run for office. Here, Trump supporters, let me put it in language you can understand: “THAT DOG DON’T HUNT.”

Progressives, please don’t chicken out and let Trump get away with his vicious, predatory attacks. We need to hit the streets on Inauguration Day and send Trump a message he will never forget.
