    Because I have the freedom of speech to do so. Right?

    Just as how my opinion is insignificant in this matter, you say that Vogue's is too because no one reads it anyway right?

    There are no laws that I am aware of against running extended propaganda campaigns, but people don't have to like it.

    It's pretty obvious the trans mania is primarily agenda driven, although of course there is also the spin-off factor of people picking it up and running with it because it is trendy. It can be difficult to separate those two things.

    I didn't say any of those things. If you can't engage my actual argument, maybe throw in the towel? That's what you're doing by falling back on freedom of speech, though, isn't it? Since nobody is censoring you, just arguing with you?

    My actual argument is that your message is empty absent a subtext which you deny exists. Every time anyone says anything they are sending a message. Pointing that out is about as meaningful as the observation that a particular circle is a round circle.

    It is my opinion that they trying too hard here. They are promoting transgenderism and trying to push it on everyone. Yes, they have the right to do so and I have the right to call them out on it. I think that people should dress and call themselves whatever they want, that's their right. But when you have a publication trying to capitalize on Manning by whoring out an agenda for shock value, I think it's bit sad.

    You don't agree with my opinion, or think it's stupid to point out....too bad. Throw in what towel? For what? I wasn't trying to win an argument over it. It is what it is.

    Now.. we're arguing about arguing. Neat.

    They should make a separate subforum in here for all the crybaby alt-right threads about Vogue, Slate, CNN, celebrity tweets, etc.

    I'm not sure where you live, but here in Atlanta the Vogue was covered by a little plastic screen at the checkout so you could only see the name. This is typical for all the sorts of mags in the store.

    I specifically had a problem with "shoving down our throats." Pushing an agenda perhaps, but I actually don't give them that much credit. They are trying to sell magazines. They will put whatever sells on the cover. Last week Breitbart lost it's shit because the Vogue cover was a picture of Jennifer Lawrence standing in front of the State of Liberty in a red dress.

    I can name many magazines that are pushing actual agendas - The Atlantic, The Nation, Mother Jones, National Review, New Republic, American Spectator etc. that nobody get's upset over.

    Lmao at the War Room. People are overly aggressive assholes here over nothing. Maybe more so than the old OT even, or maybe it just seems that way because it's so humorless and these people actually take it so seriously.

    It has always been a little hot in here, but when the Trump campaign started it got worse and never cooled out.
