"Think about it," he (Sorbo) said. "We give ‘pride’ an entire month in this country — yet we give our veterans one day. This is really weird to me."

May is Military Appreciation Month. November is Veterans/Military Families Month. Then there's Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Armed Forces Day, each service's birthday (June 14 being the most significant one 😉).....

Kevin's either failed to do basic research or he's lying.

Of course you don't. You just want to indiscriminately superimpose your values onto kids who may barely understand who they are or who they want to be. You want to breed a bunch of "manly men" who probably don't cry, hide their emotions, and whose basis is likely found in Father Knows Best and Ozzie and Harriet. If the cliche were any more blatant, it would be laughable.

Problem is: Sorbo is serious, which means we have to be just as serious in opposing him and his bullshit.

The religious right loves their stereotypes, and tries to hammer everyone into the molds they approve of, whether they fit or not. Absolutely nothing qualifies Sorbo to pontificate on the trans-gendered, or any other subject I know of. He's just one more fool who conflates his religion and politics with actual expertise. Ever the professional victim, Sorbo wonders why he can't find work in Hollywood.

It's a shame Kevin didn't do even a cursory bit of research on lions.

"A female lion is called a lioness. Lionesses are super females, performing the majority of duties in their pride (group), from catching most of the food to protecting the territory from intruders and raising cubs. These intruders are typically other female lions living nearby, looking to expand their territories."

I agree! If your boy kid wants a pretty pretty princess toy or cake, let them. If you take your kid to a library or bookstore story time (I hope you do), and suddenly find out the adult reading the story is a guy in a dress, but your kid wants to stay, let them stay. That's letting kids be kids. My kid's story time readers included gay guys, straight women, and someone in a giant llama costume. The one he didn't want to stay for was the giant llama costume, because it scared him. So we didn't make him stay. That is how you let kids be kids. The gay guy? With little kids it doesn't even register, with big kids they don't care unless you care. Soooo...don't care.

I don't think anyone is teaching that. At an early stage, what you are teaching is that if the kid wants to play with a 'different gender' toy, that's perfectly fine. If they want 'different gender' clothing or jewelry, that's fine too. No four year old doomed themselves to be a bad adult provider for their family because they wore a beret in their hair.

I agree, that's the danger. The one doing it is you dude, not us.

I will tell this B-list idjit what bravery is.

Bravery is standing up and being yourself when the world is telling you to be someone else,

Or else.

Sorebuns whines how veterans only get one day a year (a lie).

Wonder if he supports gay veterans. Atheist veterans. We've had both in this country since the American Revolution, where we fought to escape a Christian theocracy and a king who believed he could rule by divine right.

Lucy Lawless likely hurt her back when she carried Sorbo in "Zena, Warrior Princess."

Sorbo said it's dangerous to teach children that men and women can swap sexes at will or that children can be whichever gender they choose.


Literally, no one teaches this. You are born who you are. Your understanding of this topic is non-existent.

As a woman I have a lot to say about this book. None of it good.

“The 64-year-old actor, best known for his starring role in “Hercules” chronicles the journey of a lion cub named Lucas who endures numerous obstacles on a tricky route to find the cure to a deadly illness that has plagued his sister in the new children’s book, The Test of Lionhood.”

Wow, this sounds great! I didn’t read the book, but I can guess the outcome of the journey.

Lucas, after so many travails, comes upon a group of Eagle Scouts, ends up sexual abused by the Scoutmaster and finally gains enough strength and courage to move along.

He then encounters, a radical democratic liberal, and must fight his way, against all odds, because the democrats has weaponized the DOJ and FBI against him.

After finally surviving his grueling journey, Lucas gets his hands on the magical cure that will save his sister cub. However, after speaking with Joe Rogan and JRK Jr. (the poor man’s JFK Jr.), Lucas is convinced the cure (using MRNA technology), has not been adequately tested, and therefore is given a treatment of Hydroxychloroquine; a cure all approved at the highest levels of the evangelical church and Joe Rogan.

Lucas, galvanized by his new friends, and only after doing his own research, accepts the Hydroxychloroquine, and sets off to save his sister cub.

Lucas eventually makes his way back to his sister cub, and administers the Hydroxychloroquine. Unfortunately, his sister cub would die a miserable death a few days later.

What were you expecting? A miracle? It’s hydroxychloroquine, people? Unless, you have malaria, it’s useless!!!!!

That said, it’s still a true, feel good story of triumph, courage and overall stupidity, which only a bunch of morons like Sorbo could appreciate...:)

But the book IS transphobic.

Are we also going to ignore his recent comments about men in Hollywood not being manly? Poor Timothee Chalamet, what did he ever do to Sorebut?

One of the right’s favorite manly characters, Ron Swanson is supposed to be a joke on their ideas of masculinity. We’re making fun of you. And how masculine is it to cry about how other people act when they have no bearing on your life whatsoever.

““This takes nothing away from women's equality … women just have a different role in the family, and I think you need both a man and a woman raising a family."“

Then why do so many traditional values men dump wives and pregnant girlfriends so often?

This “women have different roles” is some fucking bs to give man an excuse not to have to do undesirable work in the home. Cleaning up after yourself isn’t a woman’s job, it’s basic human decency. Change your baby’s diapers ferchrissake. Play with your children, teach them stuff, pick up after them, take them to the doctor, pack their diaper bag, none of that is so special that only a woman can manage to do it.

Let’s not also ignore the lack of empathy for families that have faced the death of one of the parents. And a great deal of other situations where there is only one parent.

Having loving, supportive, involved parents is all that is needed, whether it’s a single pattern, or two moms or two dads or a village of aunts and uncles. These are far superior to many religious mom and dad families where the children are used as tokens of piousness or are abused or neglected. The two parent nuclear family is far too modern and has far too many drawbacks to be what Sorbo thinks it is, a paragon of virtue.

Sorbo is trash. I can’t help but wonder how much he really believes and how much is a desperate attempt to claw his way back up to c-list status.
