Tossing Salt Presents:
Pop Culture Fact or Fiction
Drag Queens, The View & More
May 5, 2023
For many years now, I’ve been doing a thing called Wrestling Fact or Fiction, where I look at a statement, agree or not agree, and then explain why. Well, it’s not just for wrestling anymore. It’s pop culture and current events. Yeah, this one is going to ruffle some feathers and make some people hot. It should be fun. So are you ready? Let’s do this.
Trans-women should be allowed to compete in women’s sports.
FICTION: What is a trans-woman but a physical man wearing make-up, a dress, and playing make-believe? A man is not a woman and men should not be competing in Women’s sports. There is an unfair physical advantage that men have, being generally stronger and wired differently, that makes any physical competition unfair and unequal. It’s like a bicycle race, but the man tans-woman drives a Harley Davidson while the natural women drive a tricycle with a flat wheel. I have nothing against people wanting to play make-believe and dress up if that’s their thing but don’t use that delusion to take away from everyone else who is playing by the rules. Men should compete against men and women against women where sports are concerned and just because Joseph and Billy Bob feel extra pretty, that does not make them women. ‘Nuff said!
It’s perfectly fine for children to be around drag queens.
FICTION: I have no problems with men doing drag or being entertainers. Hell, I’ve even done it myself several years ago on Halloween and to be honest, I looked freaking awesome! But that’s an adult thing and for adults only. Children should not be at drag shows, around drag queens, or exposed to all the sexually exploitative crap that can cause confusion and force them to grow up way too fast. Would you let a five-year-old play with sex toys like a dildo or vibrator? Nope! So why let them be around men wearing skimpy women’s clothes, simulating sexual activities onstage, and promoting what some would consider perverse behavior? Once a person is of legal age, go to the shows and watch the drag queens. Have fun. But until a child is grown and an adult, that should be off-limits and out of bounds.
The View is essentially just a left-wing propaganda machine and should be canceled.
FACT: They don’t even pretend in the slightest way to be fair or unbiased anymore. I remember when Barbara Walters started the show, it was to be about different women with DIFFERENT points of view. Now, four out of five all have the same view, promoting the Democratic agenda, and the one dissenting opinion allowed is talked over and talked down to, and rarely allowed to speak. Walters is probably spinning in her grave at what her show has become. It became unwatchable several years ago and just continues to get worse and worse. It deserves to be canceled and those cackling old hens, put out to pasture for good.
Trump versus Biden in 2024 is a Presidential election rematch that no one wants.
FACT: While it could be amusing to watch Biden and Trump both do their thing and drag each other into the mud, having those two as our candidates will hurt our nation far more than it could ever help. Biden is losing it more and more every single day and he’s gone from just being a lying, plagiaristic, pedophile, crooked idiot to something even worse if that’s possible. And Trump, though he did a great job as President and has our nation growing and improving by leaps & bounds until the pandemic bullshit and the stolen election, is too polarizing and lacks the people skills to bring our country back together as it needs to be. Trump was an excellent President and his methods of running the nation as a business instead of an entitlement distribution center work. Just imagine how much better things would have been if everyone in Washington, from both parties, had worked with the President instead of fighting him every step of the way.
But the bottom line is this. Biden, for another four years, would destroy our nation, possibly beyond any chance of salvation or repair. And if he was to win and then something happen to him, we get Kamala Harris as President. Is anyone willing to risk that? And Trump would be excellent as President, but all it would do is polarize the left again and we’d have four years of nothing getting done and total BS because the left would be too busy trying to fight Trump and protect their lifestyles and power to allow anything positive to happen.
We don’t need either man back in the White House. If Trump is the nominee for his party, I’ll gladly vote for him because the Dems have proven that they can’t be trusted with or allowed power. I’d rather see a Trump-aligned GOPer, like Governor Haley perhaps, against a middle-of-the-road Democrat, like Robert Kennedy though. Our country needs change and not the kind we’ve been getting over the past two years. We need new blood and new people. And Trump and Biden just aren’t it for me.
Prosecutors were right to drop all criminal charges against Alec Baldwin for the shooting of Halyna Hutchins.
FICTION: Baldwin was holding the gun and pulled the trigger that caused a young woman to die. Maybe it wasn’t intentional, but a person is still dead and Baldwin is to blame. He should be charged, prosecuted, and face consequences for his actions. Instead, he’s getting off scot-free. That’s not justice and it’s wrong. Very wrong.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. Let me know what you think and if you agree or disagree with my thoughts. I do want to know. And with that, let’s wrap things up. Take care and be well, my friends. I’ll see you again very soon.
