It is so amazing to me that people are allowing politicians to scare them into dumb decisions.


Right now, two of the big issues are the Presidents supposed anti-terror travel ban, and which bathrooms transgendered people go to.  Now you have to lose a lot of empathy and be cruel to a large group of people if you believe in the travel ban, or even that a bathroom bill. So, that's what we're after here, what is the cost to your soul for a chance to increase your "safety"?

Right now, your odds of being killed in a terrorist attack are about 1 in 20 million.  There's no word if those odds will go down if fewer persons are allowed in the U.S., but it seems pretty unlikely.

So let's compare that 1 in 20 million to something.  According to the linked chart, you have about a 1 in 18 million chance of being killed by a dog.  So should we ban dogs from the U.S.?  It doesn't make much sense, does it?

Sadly, the chart also says that 11 out of every 100,000 women in the U.S. will die after childbirth.  Are you going to stop having kids, or even having sex?

Now all of this was comparing stuff to the threat of dying in a terrorist attack. So let's look at the issue of you being attacked by a Transgendered Person in a restroom. So far, it HAS NEVER HAPPENED. So your chances of being attacked are less than 1 in eleventy bazillion.

Don't live your life being afraid. Let's bring back those "NO FEAR" stickers and quit living like a bunch of scared babies. Let's love people and give them a chance to love us back.
