Let The Ladies Swim In Peace

Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!

This morning, I woke up before the sun. I try to. It is the only peace and quiet to be had.

A cup of Black Silk Folgers, bitter as Jeptha Berengar was wonderful, but the illusion of quiet was disrupted by deafening reality; we have a pet rat.

Claire knows my schedule better than I do and began gnawing on her cage. She wanted last night’s leftovers.


YouTube shorts do not embed in my site for some reason, but the link is above if you would like to listen to how much racket she is capable of.

I would have edited the short clip with Inshot.com so I could post to my blog effectively, but they took my 9.99 and ran with it.

Anyways, Claire can see better in the dark than me and she intuitively knew I was recording. I had to act like I was reading to trick her into doing what she does.

It was too dark and too frozen to get any work done, so I scrolled through what they call news.

I discovered that Lia Thomas, some dude that competes with girls at swimming only tied for fifth place against them. That is embarrassing stuff.


This is a rare turn of events. Perhaps he is not in shape or he was trying to be a gentleman.

Women need thier own sports and it is important to complete with the gender you were born with.

Pound for pound, men are born with more muscle mass and it is a no-brainer who will win for most things physical.

100 years ago, women had to fight for the right to vote in this country and there are all sorts of discussions had since then about women’s rights.

I suppose when men compete in sports against women, all things are equal, but it sure enough isn’t equitable. It seems we are going back a few steps in women’s rights to have males dominating their competitions. Can you imagine if women played football or boxed against men? There would be fatalities.

This is America, where you are free to choose your abomination, but good grief, let the ladies swim in peace for crying out loud.

    To be fair, swimming is one of the only sports women have a fighting chance at beating men. Or so I’ve read. But there it is, a man came in 5th.

    1. Benjamin says:

      I did some quick Google research, and you have a point.

      What are your thoughts on men competing in women’s sports?

      1. jilldomschot says:

        They shouldn’t compete in women’s sports, even though there are exceptions here and there, like with this case. Young women train for years and shouldn’t have their hopes and dreams destroyed by a man whose musculature was built by testosterone.

    If men wish to transition into women, I wish they could experience menstrual cramps and bleeding, the presence of mammary glans and the pain of lactating and the fear of breast cancer every time they have an examination in a machine that flattens your breasts like pancakes. Experience all that pain and tell me how tough playing football is. I think Betty White said it best, though I won’t repeat it here. I’m beginning to think all this transitioning is another case of the grass looking greener on the other side.
    P.S., Nice video. My guinea pig did the same thing in the morning. Gotta love their little hearts.

    You’re absolutely right, Ben! This has definitely set women back a century or so and I believe this gender ID is an undercover way for the Evil-lites to snatch away the rights women have fought for decades for, and won. I can’t believe more women’s rights groups haven’t seen through this sham! Thank you so much for addressing this issue.

      1. cheriewhite says:

        😂🤣😂🤣 I certainly wouldn’t call them “Elites.” Heck, that’s too good for them.

        1. mattsnyder1970 says:

          Oh it was a play on elite, gotcha. They are what they are. I can’t stoop to the level of calling anyone a derogatory name, no matter who you are. Ya know whether I agree with anyone and who they are, what they believe or what they do.

          1. cheriewhite says:

            I get that. But these people are evil. And to keep from calling them “elites,” I call them “Evil-lites” or “E-lites.” If the show fits, let them wear that puppy. 😁😁😁

          2. mattsnyder1970 says:

            In what way are they evil ? Misunderstood or confused yes, but evil. I can’t grasp that Cherie.

          3. cheriewhite says:

            I’ve done the research and found some solid evidence of their psychopaths and meanness. I don’t make comments like this until I know I gotten the facts, Matt. These people are also into child trafficking and they’re trying to take away our freedoms. You don’t have to agree with me. That’s okay.

          4. mattsnyder1970 says:

            You’re right I don’t. I respect your opinion. Because everyone should have that right.

          5. Benjamin says:

            I think Putin is evil. He kills people. That is pretty evil. 🤠🔥☕

          6. mattsnyder1970 says:

            100% agree with you there 👍 Although, I’d all. I think you have to be a snake Tobe a politician. You wear one skin shed it and underneath is another.

          7. mattsnyder1970 says:

            Are you referring specifically to the transgendered people as elite ? Or anyone that you define as elite ? As a monogamous happily married bisexual, liberal, anti bully, Polytheistic partially Agnostic human being, I sure as hell don’t consider myself an elitist.

          8. cheriewhite says:

            Bye, Matt. Stop with the word salad. Did I even mention transgenders or any other group you threw out there? No I didn’t. Do not put words in my mouth or I’ll have no choice but to shut this conversation down.

          9. Benjamin says:

            While ambiguous, I believe Cherie is stating that there are people in power that would like to take away women’s rights. I cannot speak for her though. 🤠🔥☕

          10. cheriewhite says:

            You’re right. And I believe they should have a division strictly for transgender. Women and girls are getting the shaft and it’s not right. Transgender may not have the sexual equipment but they still have the muscle mass and bone density. And I believe this is a ploy to set women back. It also puts women and girls in danger because many have been raped by men who ID as women. And I stand by everything I say. As a woman, I’m pissed. No, transgender should never be mistreated, but when you take away from women to give to transgender, that’s wrong!

          11. mattsnyder1970 says:

            And I agree with everything you said 100%. I honestly wasn’t trying to start an argument Cherie. So I apologize to you for any miscommunication.

          12. mattsnyder1970 says:

            ❤️ to you as well…we might not be exactly the same in every way but we definitely think to some extent on the same path.

          13. cheriewhite says:

            Absolutely and that’s okay. No two people are exactly the same. If we were, this world would be boring as hell. 😁

          14. mattsnyder1970 says:

            I’m not arguing, I’m conversing. I’m just trying to understand where you’re coming from ?

          15. cheriewhite says:

            I’m coming from the fact that biological women are getting shafted because no one wants to consider that, although transgenders may or may no longer have the genitalia, they still have the muscle mass and body composition of a male and this puts women at a severe disadvantage.

          16. mattsnyder1970 says:

            And that is completely wrong, they in turn have an advantage which to me, is cheating. They should have their own division and leave it at that, or quite frankly get help and accept what God has given them.

    I have major issues with people of both genders that transition (nor do I think they should be included with those of us in the LGB) Sexuality and Gender are not equal. I personally see transitioning as a degree of mental illness. I don’t think there is incompetent Quality Assurance in heaven on the Soul production line.

    As for the swimmer, absolutely wrong on multiple levels, whether they consider themselves female, unless you full on transition your soul (think Frankenstein) you will never be fully female.

    In regards to Lolalia, not all men are created equal. I have suffered from Klinefelter Syndrome. I have an extra chromosome in my DNA and pretty much experience pretty close to female issues. I think I will illustrate that in the next comic Ben.

    1. Benjamin says:

      Thank you for your perspective. I believe women should compete with women in sports.

        1. Benjamin says:

          I believe men and women are created as such. I do not believe a man can become a woman.
