It’s Okay, She’s Got You Babe

cher-and-chastity

Keep in mind that Babe is not only an endearing name to call someone, but it’s also the name of a famous actor pig from a movie. Did you know that Babe the pig was raised by sheepdogs?

Even though her only daughter is seeking to have a complete sex change by transitioning from a female to a male, Cher says she supports Chaz, and will always love her no matter what:

“Chaz is embarking on a difficult journey, but one that I will support,” Cher tells Usmagazine.com in a statement. “I respect the courage it takes to go through this transition in the glare of public scrutiny, and although I may not understand, I will strive to be understanding. The one thing that will never change is my abiding love for my child.”

The first 30 times I read that I cried like a baby. You see, something similar happened to me a few years back, something that changed my life and the life of my youngest legitimate child forever…

When my boy, let’s just call him *What’s his face, or WHF* came to me 8 years ago and said that he wanted to transition from a beautiful little boy into a kangaroo, I was, to put it mildly, shocked. I’ve only heard of things like this, I’ve only met two, maybe three people who have children that are now kangaroos. But after a while when the news sank in, and knowing the prejudice that marsupial-Canadians face every day, I decided that I would stand behind WHF 100%.

I said, “Kanga, although I may not understand, I will strive to be understanding.” That’s what us progressives do, we never question or judge someone or something, we just accept, love and then love some more.

It was hard at first, watching my beautiful son slowly morph into a kangaroo. I always had to keep my good eye on him when he was near Australians, as they always tried to shoot him or skin him for a pelt. But after a while, my acceptance grew, and now I can say with certainty that Kanga made the right decision, he was meant to be a marsupial.

Plus having that extra pouch around really comes in handy when we go camping. That’s kind of a bonus I guess you could say.

    Mr. Mayor, the LOL gets thrown around a LO Lot. But seriously man. I. AM. HURTING!…thanks for the morning chuckle.

    Personally, if it was my son, I’d call him,”Roo”, after a favourite child’s story. “Kanga” sounds kind of tribal, like “Kunta Kinte” or some such, which is okay if you’re African, but as a little white boy, it’s kind of,well, pretentious.

    Like when I named my boys Muhammad Ali Morris, and Kareem Abdul Morris.

    Cher needs to ship Chaz off to a good psychiatrist where she/he can get therapy for about the next ten years. There was a British study done on sex change operations a couple of years back, and their conclusion was that the person wanting the sex change was suffering a severe mental illness, and were most assuredly NOT a person born into the wrong body.

    And, as you brought it up, my youngest, Kareem, wants a change to a salt water crocodile, as he admires their ferocity, power, and the fact they eat people whole.

    I think the kid has issues.

    Well, let’s think about this. Although it will be difficult finding shoes for Kanga, he could have a great career in boxing. On the other hand, I would discourage Crocodile boy, for will be the subject of children’s mocking little ditties.

    My first husband (RIP) met a young fellow who always wanted to be an alligator, in fact he was called “Gator”.
    After a night of drinking and rowdiness, Gator bit FH’s ear off.

    Florida had a cracker named Gator,
    he came from down the west coast.
    He bit Mick’s ears off for the funnin’,
    Then he ate them with his grits and toast.

    okay, I made that up and sang it to/at FH, but you see what can happen?
    Be happy with what you are.

    Mr. Mayor, The Mrs. read this story of your personal travail, and did not laugh at all!

    She said, “male Kangaroos don’t have pouches. So, I’m assuming that not only did WHF change species, but also gender.”

    She’s real good on animal/human sexuality characteristic junk.

    Just kidding…she did laugh like a hyena before pointing out the “pouch” deal.

  5. dmorris Says:

    Andy, just HOW does your wife know what equipment kangaroos have?!

    She may have some “splainin’” to do!

  6. dmorris Says:

    nancy, that ditty of yours, sung to “Oh,Canada” makes a lot of sense.

    Well done.

  7. nancy Says:

    aw, you flatter me :)

  8. Andy Says:

    dmorris, she definitely has a lot of ’splaining to do…but not when it comes to animal sexuality traits.

    She is a nature girl. She knows everything about everything when it comes to critters. And for some odd reason the first thing she picked out about The Mayor’s son, WHF, was that he must have also had a sex-change in order to have a pouch. No offense intended to The Mayor, or WHF…

    She has Animal Planet on “speed remote,” and drives me freakin’ nuts with junk like that.

    She is ONE HOT CHICK at 48…but as far as I know, kangaroos, opossums, and koalas have pretty well kept their distance.

    Andy, I enjoyed watching the nature shows, like Wild Discovery, that used to be on a few years back.

    One rather horrifying show was about male lions fighting for the rights to the Pride. I was astonished to see that when a new male took over by defeating the former King, he immediately murdered all the other guy’s cubs!

    And of course they had to show this great big male killing those cute little cubs! I was so pissed off,I was ready to go on safari!

    And once the cubs were all dead, the females immediately went into heat and bred with the new King.

    There’s a lesson there somewhere. ;-)
