    Americans Distracted By The Transgender Bathroom Argument While 3 Nuclear Disasters Unfold
    May 3, 2016

    The American people have been distracted to keep them from hearing about the 3 nuclear disasters occurring on the East Coast.

    The debate over which bathroom transgender people can use has been taking over the Internet and our social conversations for weeks now, and it’s getting a bit ridiculous. Transgender people have always used the bathroom that they feel comfortable with, whether it’s the bathroom that belongs to the sex they were born with or not, and there have been no problems.

    In the heat of this debate, Americans are not only divided on the issue but collectively distracted from bigger, more important issues, such as the fact that there are three nuclear disasters occurring throughout the nation that have been getting no media attention.

    One major disaster that will soon come to head all started with a fire at the Bridgeton Landfill in Missouri that has been burning for five years. Despite this extremely long length of time, authorities say that this fire is nowhere close to being contained. What’s more is that St. Louis County officials have reported that they have an emergency plan in place because the fire is closing in on nuclear waste dump.

    It’s been an entire year since the county first became concerned that the fire would reach the West Lake Landfill, which is home to piles of leftover nuclear waste from the Manhattan Project and the Cold War. Although the EPA has had control over the site since 1990, no significant effort has been made to clear the harmful waste.

    The EPA announced last December that it planned on building a wall to prevent the fire from ever reaching the hazardous materials, but the project was supposed to take a year to complete and residents are furious at this slow-moving “effort” to stop a natural disaster. The project has not yet begun and was just barely finalized last week.

    Meanwhile, another nuclear reactor in New York has been leaking ever since Americans greeted the new year, when workers accidentally spilled contaminated water that contained the radioactive hydrogen isotope tritium. The spill caused a massive spike in radiation in the groundwater wells, and one well even saw an increase in radioactivity of about 65,000%.

    Additionally, there are two nuclear reactors in the U.S. that have reportedly been leaking for months.

    One of the nuclear power plants in Turkey Point, which is in Florida, was found to have been leaking polluted water into Miami-Dade County’s Biscayne Bay. The pollution is affecting the bay’s surface waters and will likely have a damaging effect on the already-fragile ecosystem.

    This pollution is also said to be affecting the drinking water, as huge saltwater plumes coming from the power plants have invaded the groundwater.

    Laura Reynolds, an environmental consultant that is working towards filing a lawsuit against the Turkey Point power plants said,

    “WE NOW KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THE POLLUTION IS COMING FROM, AND WE HAVE A TRACER THAT SHOWS IT’S IN THE NATIONAL PARK. WE ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE MARINE LIFE THERE AND THE FUTURE OF BISCAYNE BAY.”

    This is extremely concerning, but when you consider that this is the ninth reported spill in the last year, four of which were so severe that the plant had to be closed, it becomes clear that something needs to change. The residents living close to these leaks and fires are alarmed to say the least, but utility companies and government agencies (whose hands are in the pockets of the utility companies) have continued to downplay the damaging effects of exposure to radiation.

    Some Americans have suspected that the passing of North Carolina’s “bathroom bill,” which prohibits transgender people from using the bathroom associated with the gender they identify with, has been a ploy to distract Americans from real issues and they may be right. While there are other important matters occurring daily throughout the world, these three nuclear disasters are being underreported on in an effort to keep the public from turning their attention to these dangerous problems.

    If Metta could shut the fuck up about bathrooms for a second and copy and paste about important issues with the same fervency, the whole world would be aware of things like this.

    Really?!? icon_eek.gif Get over yourself and YOU "shut the fuck up."

    Sorry guys. Last time I checked this was a GAY site. Thus, all news HERE ON THIS GAY SITE should really be about Gay issues. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Does anyone come on here to find out about the news other than Gay issues? I think not.
    There are many credible news sources out there. (Except faux news of course.)
    I think that the Gay community is a highly educated lot, and do not come to RealJock expecting to read about world events.

    I love the fact that Metta post links to many Gay issues that I would have missed. icon_idea.gif

    Radd is a closet republican who shits on trans people on multiple threads, no surprise he wants to snuff out the next human rights frontier. Since we have more important nuclear disaster issues to worry about, why even bother with gay rights while we're at it... apparently we can only talk about one issue at a time... icon_question.gif

    At last, someone who has their priorities straight, who gives a damn about the bathrooms, its typical of the US government to cover up something, there was nearly a nuclear meltdown a few years ago in Nebraska because of flooding, Obama put a media silence on it, all that happened was a few miles around the site where aircraft weren't allowed near.
    When Chernobyl had its meltdown, the whole of Europe was affected with the radiation which in turn as I expect had an affect on the cancer rates, there seems to have been a sharp increase in the last few years with people getting it.
    The japanese meltdown has been covered up by their government, its still emitting radiation the same as it was the day it all blew up apparently, in the UK, our government had an increase in radiation readings over the country after it blew up and they reported in the papers saying we don't know where its coming from, HELLO !!!, its the same planet, are they that dumb.
    Our governments do not have our interests at heart which is what their job actually is for, we have to find green ways for energy and also get rid of all governments, that would stop most of the trouble around the world.

    It doesn't really matter. Even if these particular sites are completely contained, the fact is we are being fed bullshit "news" to distract us from REAL problems we all should be concerned about.

    I'm not a "closet" anything (unlike you....if you get my drift.) I'm one of the few people here who actually speaks what's on my mind so if I were a Republican I'd scream it from the rooftops, but I am not. Just because I don't blindly follow every fucking thing the Democratic party supports does not make me a Republican. And shallow your victimhood before you choke on it. You already have the right to use the bathroom. Just go piss or shit and go on with your life. And apparently we cannot talk about more than one issue at a time because all that's in the news for months is where trans people take a shit.

    Why don't you make me shut my mouth you hypersensitive retard. Ever notice how we have different forum categories? That's because not everyone takes their whole identity from being gay. Maybe being gay is all you have but most healthy adults have other concerns other than "would you rim the guy above you" threads.

    ^^But you're always on those "guy above you" threads, right up there with mybud and other desperate lonely old men icon_lol.gif

    If you were straight in 1969 you'd be making angry threads about those stonewall faggots "distracting" others from the "real" issues.

    No I am not always on those threads. I occasionally participate if I see a hot guy because it's a great way to express mutual interest. But why are you "always" clicking on those threads anyway if they're so beneath you oh faceless profile? Hmmmm?

    I happen to appreciate Metta's contributions here and appreciate many of the links he posts. If one of his links references something I'm not interested in, guess what? I don't click the link!

    ALL threads clearly show who has started them. So if you don't like Metta's postings, then just don't click the link for any thread started by him. Problem solved (unless you're just wanting something to bitch about).

    I used to bitch about Southbeach and Metta but have given up my bitchery. Now i bitch about people bitching about things, it's easier to hide the fact that i am a bitch bitching. icon_wink.gif

    I wholly agree with "you_know_its_true". You'd be as dismissive and damning about "gays" as you are about racial groups you do not presently find attractive if you were only "into women", Radd.

    LOL....ooh, ahhh, you're such a tough guy. Listen, whether you could kick my arse or not, I would say the EXACT same thing to your face. icon_mad.gif
    Saying that Metta should "shut the fuck up" is absolutely inexcusable. He posts links to both serious and non-serious stories that are about the Gay community. Maybe I need to spell it out phonetically for you. LOL. icon_rolleyes.gif
    This is a GAY SITE!

    And I'm not hypersensitive at all. LOL!! (Just hate bullies.) Be them online trolls like you are acting, or in person. My whole identity is not about me being Gay. But I am Gay, and it's a part of my daily life/identity. Especially in a country where the law making majority are bigoted right wing repukes. So for many Gay people on this site, we come here for Gay issues and as just a getaway from the bigoted world we have to share.

    Anyone whom reads the news does know about these nuclear travesties that have happened/occurring.

    Maybe you're right that there is room for this news on this Gay site. But instead of being an loud-mouth arsehole and criticising Metta in your diatribe. Simply post your thread and "shut the fuck up" about what Metta does. icon_idea.gificon_wink.gif
