And Then, Old...

First-up, I had an E-mail from a friend – I was going to say an old friend, but aren’t we all? Anyhoo, he informed me he’d been less than well for the past year and this culminated in a hip replacement operation. He didn’t elaborate on what his hip was replaced with but it must be something along the same lines as he mentioned he was getting better but still walking with a pronounced limp. That’s L.I.M.P. pronounced limp. Can’t beat the old ones eh?

Now for some serious{?} stuff. A K Haart has the lowdown on the back-down of a shoe manufacturer relating to their naming of a girls and boys range of footwear.  However, all is now well in the world of shoe names according to Nanny Knows Best as, allegedly, they’ve renamed the line snappily thus;
Dolly Babe shoe has been renamed: CGNS1067386/2017B (Clark's Gender Neutral Shoe No: 1067386/2017 season, in black)

Finally, though I believe this will be far from ‘finally', I was surfing the news and crashed onto the rocky shore of wot’s below. Worryingly, they walk amongst us:

   A couple are raising Britain's first gender-fluid family, bringing up their four-year-old son as a 'person' and not a 'boy'.
   Nikki and Louise Draven from Middlesbrough do not believe in imposing a gender on Star Cloud, especially as neither of his parents gets 'hung up' on the gender they were born with.
   Louise, was born a man but is transitioning to be a woman while Nikki was born a woman but identifies as both male and female and dresses as a man on some days and wears high heels, lipstick and padded bras on others.
   Star views Louise as her mother, although she is her biological father, while Nikki – who Star calls Daddy – is his birth mother.
   The Dravens, who married in a pagan ceremony in 2012, are believed to be Britain's first entirely gender fluid family.

You may believe this is just a sad hippy couple living their own dream – or having a giraffe at our expense. Click on this link, view the pictures and have that belief shattered and then have a weep for the future.

Now correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t a couple recently have child fostering refused on the grounds of their politics as they were UKIP voters? Hello!! Where are the Child Protection Services relating to this sad storey? UKIP bad - Pagan good? After this attention seeking{?} media exposure you’d think that, in a normal world, this  couple would’ve  been quietly sectioned and secured by now, for their own good, and the poor kid, that would be Star Cloud, offered up for fostering to some evil UKIP voting couple.

You think we’re going to hell in a handcart? I believe we’re heading there in a V8 powered handcart...

Whatever your belief system, if there is someone, something, somewhere out there, they must be close to despair by now and considering calling it a day. And if we’re just part of a computer sim game being played by some kid in his bedroom in another dimension, even he must be thinking he’s lost the plot and be close to turning his computer off and back on so’s the game will boot back to the big bang and he can have another run at it. After supper of course. Just in case he does reboot – bu-by.

Thanks for the link. Somehow I knew before I clicked that the couple in your link would not be physically attractive. You are right - it should be a child protection issue.

A K Haart,
In these ‘enlightened’ times it seems we have police departments inspecting and ‘advising’ shops on toilet signage and yet, in a case like this, if it’s to be believed, they would appear to be totally uninterested and silent.

So there we all are, being pushed to the dump by those who know so much better than us. Just another barrow load of rags an’ bones.
