Word Worth® has never
been interested in the transgender question and hasn’t written about
it. Then here come the bathroom legislators forcing us to. Wow! What
a hang-up! All a rapist or pedophile has to do in bathroom law states
now is claim that he was born a woman and has to use the women’s
bathroom. Way to go! bringing the wolves into the lambs’ fold.
The sadism on the part of the principal and her assistant is
shockingly abhorrent. Again and again, they torment the five-year-old telling him that he’s getting a spanking as they bring out a huge
wood paddle, and the traumatized child screams begging them not to spank
him and crying to his helpless mother to stop them. He puts his tiny hand behind him trying
to block the paddle from his backside.
Word Worth’s mission
is to publish Editorials and
Columns on subjects as diverse as xeriscaping, travel,
archaeology, and many others, and to present fine poetry, stories,
novels, and photography in the Arts section. The opinions presented are
those of the individual writers, and not necessarily those of WordWorth.
We do not shy away from controversial subjects, but we believe in
dealing with them respectfully and rationally. In one of his relatively
more recent concerts, Arlo Guthrie said that over the years he had made
friends that he might not have expected to make initially. He concluded
that there are two kinds of people: those who care and those who don’t.
He came to realize that you can find both of those kinds on every side
of every issue. We concur with that sentiment, and hope to present
ideas in the spirit of enlightened searching.
