Why So Politically Correct?

Jan 8, 2019

It’s been a while since the last podcast folks. As you may have read on the Transmissions pages I’ve been on vacation and taking care of some family issues. New Year, New Resolve! We’re back in business and a regular schedule. Very excited to officially kick this off as a regular series.

Here’s my first podcast of 2019. Recorded during the break, all about political correctness.

The tragic reality is that as a society we’ve fallen so far compared to the 70s, 80s, and 90s. We’re offended by everything. Need safe spaces. We’re creating a child-proof society. I dig into it some, talk about a crazy wedding I went to years back, and some other bits. Enjoy!

Hey everybody. Welcome to UNHINGED with Steve Lichtman

So today man, what are we going to talk about today? Well, it’s something to me that I’ve probably always told the line of being on the wrong side of this. And that would be political correctness. Anybody who knows me and sees me in my usual day to day routine, probably wonders how I’m not locked away somewhere where they throw away the key with my Neanderthal viewpoints. And my I don’t know, my special way of delivering it. You know, one of the things that that I pride myself in is that I don’t bullshit people, no matter what the situation is, it could be wonderful and good. And I’ll tell you, everything’s wonderful and good. And they could totally hit the wall. And well, I look dead in the eyes and let you know that this was a fucking car crash. Because that’s the way you should be. Now the passive progressive bullshit of the world that we live in, everybody hides behind the internet, they hide behind their phones, everybody, text first, nobody talks, nobody meets each other in a room and just hangs out and shoot the shit anymore. It would say, not only is it a last practice of our society, but in many ways, it’s a lost art form. 

1:25
You know, think of the old days the roarin’ 40s and 50s and stuff when, you know, our grandparents were there were getting shit faced whiskey, right? They’re all drinking Tennessee whiskey.

1:29
No, limit it up in the high life going crazy sitting there in their crystal glasses in their shag carpeting. That’s three feet deep. And they’re standing there. They’re playing the old phonograph and they’re dancing, they get totally hammered. They’re all walking home. At the end of the day. That’s all gone. And what do people do now?

1:51
Nothing. They they sit around, and they text each other all day, all night. So you know, in those days, people would they be hanging out, they’d be playing that swing music and whatever they were doing, and they be drinking and having a good time and, and letting loose. They’d be talking about the different things they believed in. They wouldn’t always agree. But everybody would go home happy and everybody would come back the next weekend and start up all over again. Fast forward, 2018, and baby it’s cold outside becomes a bannable offense.

2:27
The play on the radio which Listen, I get it, people are super super sensitive. Nowadays. It’s it’s not what I grew up in. It’s not the 70s and we have to just accept it’s not that anymore. It’s not the 80s. It’s even not the beginning of the 90s. We live in a land of extremely sensitive people. how sensitive absurdly sensitive to the point where you have to think about everything you say, and everywhere you go in a person like me, Listen, I’m my own admission.

3:04
I’m a bit out there. I’m a bit of a wild cat. When it comes to opinions. I’m always glad to give mine always good to give my thought on something. I don’t care. Listen, if if it offend somebody? Well, you know, as they say, fuck them.

3:17
They can either live with it or make it hate my guts. Either way, doesn’t make a difference. Still going to give my opinion. I mean, that’s that’s why were people were people that say what we see around us into the antidote. goals that you have in life from existing are not meant to be kept in a text message or a tweet. It’s cool to do that occasionally. And you want to post online through social media, hey, we all do. To some extent I do as well. But I would much rather be in a room and talk to somebody then have 50 people in a room or texting each other where they look over at each other. And they said, Well, here’s a great story…

3:54
I was at a wedding about 10 years ago. And I was the token white guy, right. So my wife was working in a job and it was somebody from the engineering department he was super nice, super nice guy, super nice fiance. We hung out with them before there’s a whole story I could tell you about the previous time we hung out I call it the I have diarrhea story so if you hear that and that makes you laugh you know let’s let’s do this. If you think that’s funny the idea of a story about somebody telling me that they have diarrhea you could post up to me on social media and let me know and I will just recount that entire story as a podcast because I that would probably be pretty funny I mean it was it was funny the limit so to to recount it I’m probably listen I’m laughing just thinking about it now because it was it was one of the most wild things that I was a part of that not wild like dangerous not wild like you know being in a gunfight the OK Corral. Just wild like holy fuck, this dude’s telling me this right now in the middle of you know, I’m not going to reveal where we work that would ruin the anticipation of the story but anyways, I met this guy’s wedding six months after the I have diarrhea incident happens. And, you know, on the token white guy, I’m six foot tall, 200 pound long haired rock and roll dude wearing. I don’t know what I was. I was more like a Steel Panther t shirt in a mint velvet jacket. I looked like Godzilla. And they’re feeding us all this crazy weird shit. You know, they’re they’re feeding us squid. They’re feeding us what I call as well. Funny enough diarrhea soup, which was the desert which was I don’t know what it was maybe prune. It was something other people were devouring it. I basically went hungry the entire night. But to the point of the way society had becoming even then you started to see it. They were they were texting in groups. So all the people from each table with group text all of the people at the next table, then they would all their phones would bring it the same time. And then the other table was all like, ah, and they were laughing and giggling it up. Nobody knew my numbers. So I didn’t get texted. I wasn’t privy to this. This internal mind. Fuck of a game of Look, I’m texting you when you’re eight feet away from me.

6:20
To me. It was ridiculous. It was just why would you bother. But they were having fun. But to me it was a sign of the times that we’re in a society where instead of like, nobody got up. Nobody was walking around. Nobody. Everybody literally just sat and ate the entire time. And the bride and groom came to every table paid tribute. And then everybody left. That was it. Maybe that’s a traditional traditional Asian wedding. I don’t know it’s the only one I’ve ever been to. I mean, I know that people that were there that uh. That new the food that was coming out and knew everything that was happening. They were telling me how incredible it was and and listen to it looked fantastic. Just culturally I’m you know, not a shark fin soup. And. And you know, shark fin soup to start and then diarrhea soup to end it kind of guy. I know that jellyfish the fuck what I used to jelly fish for. That doesn’t make sense. They sting you. I don’t want one inside my belly. I mean, I get it. It’s maybe cooked. I mean, it didn’t look cooked. But that’s not for me to judge because I didn’t need it. So who am I to talk?

7:23
I had lo mein, if I remember, right. It was something super basic. And they were like, I’ll look stupid white guy. He’s not going to eat anything. Let’s give him some food.

7:33
My wife did eat some of the food about. Yeah, it was all a lazy Susan. So the other people at our table where they were thrilled. They’re like, Oh, look, we have the guy Jen. We’re going to get bonus food. Because I just kept telling people, hey, whoever wants the extra days, you’re welcome to it. I’m not going to eat it. And they were like, Oh, this is a delicacy. But you know, at the end of the day, it was the whole social aspect of it. You know, besides the two or three people you spoke to eat your table, nobody engaged each other. Everybody was just kind of sitting around thing. They’re all texting in each other’s groups. And giggling and, and I, I didn’t get it. I just didn’t get it. You know, it’s, it’s part of, I think this whole thing you look at, you look at this is the predecessor to the political correctness is so much easier to institute on people when you’re not engaged. When you’re not in front of people. If you put me in a room with a couple of people, we’re going to have a good time. I guarantee it. It’s like the guy from the old men’s warehouse commercials, right? You’re gonna love the way you look? Well, I promise you. We all hang out in a room together. You’re gonna laugh and have a good time because that’s what that’s what I try to make happen. When I’m in a room with people. I want them to be jovial, tell stories, have some fun, you know, let their hair down. You know me included and just enjoy it. Enjoy the moment of being around other people that standing in a room full of other people than looking down at your fucking phone. Like a zombie texting people. What’s the point? Why be anywhere just go sit in your house and never leave. You know, lock make a closet. Make yourself a texting chamber. That has would be great idea. You take a closet, we put charging ports on all the walls. So no matter whatever fucking retarded angle that you’re sitting in that closet hanging from it like a bat, whenever you’re doing who gives a fuck. You can hang there. You could sit there, you could take a dump in a five gallon bucket for all I kept. But you’d be able to charge your phone plugin. Sit there with just a glow of your phone inside that closet the whole time and text until the fucking eyeballs fall out of your head or your thumb. Stop moving. I bet you some people would love it. I would be in hell other people. They’d be in heaven. So you know, it is what it is. It’s it’s our society man where we’re all texting, texting, texting, texting, texting. And that’s it. We’re not actually doing anything. We’re texting. You know, people are sitting on internet groups. And they’re they’re talking and they’re bitching and moaning. And they’re doing what they’re doing. But they’re not getting anything done. They’re just complaining, complaining for the sake of complaining. And that doesn’t really provide any value. Because then it’s just more noise. You You’re more of the fodder for what’s around there. And it’s bringing it all down. So now you get the political correctness machine. Yeah, the political correctness world What are you going to do? So you’ll sit there and text and at the end of the day you being wrangled in, right and this all comes back to baby it’s cold outside, right this is what everybody’s talking about people and making parodies online people to go and just fucking bonkers at the end of the day. Frankel Loeser lost her I don’t know how to say it properly. He wrote a song in 1944 to sing a duet with his wife. It wasn’t a Bill Cosby date rape song. It wasn’t an anthem to to abusing women. It wasn’t something intended to be bad. It was back in that time of those crazy 40s and 50s where people were getting shit faced drunk while wearing suits and ties and and standing there all elegantly and doing their thing it was an different era that we live in. So the song was a back and forth a lot of the comments about the lyrics that people were upset about those were common terms in those days that were known as light hearted terms of new things people would say well well out together and drinking together and having a good time together wasn’t this nefarious I’m going to drug you and fuck you mentality that people are trying to make it sound like now and you know even the dude and listen this is I’m not a radio station reviewer by any means. I’m not a radio personality I’m just me right I’m just another guy in your planet that has his own thoughts opinions and views on the world. 

12:00
But when the guy from Cleveland w do k which come on man, it should probably be w Ei k. Now because they’re known as w dick radio after this little stunt, it will be the whole thing that guy said was the fellow that was that was the host, Glenn Anderson.

12:07
He said that I’ve got the quote up here, so I’m going to read it directly. The world we live in is extra sensitive now and people get easily offended.

12:18
But in a world where lb to me to has finally given women the voice they deserve. The song has no place.

12:29
Glenn, you’re a fucking idiot.

12:33
That’s it. Man. I don’t know what else to tell you. You’re completely missing the point that this was a song from 1944. So let’s do this. Then. Let’s take it another step. Right? If you want to be politically correct, well, then, let’s go all in. Go balls deep in it, man. Let’s go Steel Panther style. Let’s just take this son of a bitch and go balls deep ban every movie that has that song in it. There’s probably hundreds. Hell, it was the main song at the end of the month, alpha Will Ferrell. So why don’t you take that off the Christmas shelves. Let’s see how the movie companies like it when they lose hundreds of millions of dollars. As opposed to a song on the radio that you know the ancestor of it is like in her 60s. Anyway. So there’s, you know that you’re talking about a song from so long ago. Who knows what the royalties are? I doubt it’s hundreds of millions of dollars. I doubt it will ferrell elf kind of money. So why don’t we take that movie off the shelves? Why don’t we take every movie that has that song off the shelves. So every single iteration of baby it’s cold outside. Remove every Christmas album off the shelves. Remove every movie that has it in off the shelves. And listen, if if you’re still listening, and you’re hearing this you have to be laughing and thinking Holy fuck. You know, this would be so stupid.

13:50
Your ‘Why would you go so extreme?’ Well, if a radio station which is supposed to be playing music can’t play music because some douche bag is too much worried about offending somebody from a song that was written there. What, 74 years ago. Remember, 74 years ago? Not last week. This didn’t come out yesterday. And not for nothing. We’re you know, we’re worried about baby it’s cold outside when you’ve got you know, rappers out there talking about you know, getting high and fucking every bitch inside and we’re cool with that. Like a you know, listen to Jay Z’s got 99 problems. But a big chain one. But baby it’s cold outside of that. And I play that song. Fuck me. I mean, right? You don’t play baby. It’s cold outside. But hey, we’ve got the new rappers talking about fucking and sucking everything in sight and shoving their asses in your face. And was it I don’t know, is it cardi B or C i don’t know who it is. But I saw the Q Park video. If you know q Park is he’s a hilarious internet celebrity on YouTube. And he really creates videos from I mean music I would never listen to any other way. But he recreates them in the streets of Manhattan. And he’s fucking amazing. You’ll go Google him on your YouTube me typing q Park. Q pa rk and don’t tell me this guy’s not funny as fuck because he’s amazing. He’s absolutely hilarious. And he was doing inappropriate songs with a guitar doing acoustic versions. I think it was cardi B and it was heat my ass like a cupcake that listen. I think that’s hilarious. I was laughing my ass off. When I saw it. It was it was amazing. You know, I had tears in my eyes. laughing so hard. I thought it was just the reactions of the people while he’s sitting there in a subway. strumming his acoustic guitar second eat my ass like a cupcake. I mean, it was great. The people that don’t know the song naked. The ones that do just smile and be like, all right, they know you could tell. I don’t even know the fucking music. And I can tell which people know the music. It’s the ones that look at him. Like, what are you from? Am I safe? Those are the ones that make you laugh. And we live in a world where that song is cool. Eat my ass like a cupcake. But baby it’s cold outside. Fuck. No, no, you stupid dirty animals. You can’t play that on the radio anymore. No more baby. It’s cold outside, double down on eating my ass like a cupcake. So that’s how I feel about political correctness. It’s bullshit. We pick and choose where we want it to be. You know, look at George Carlin and the seven dirty words he can’t say on TV. It’s high time for an updated version of that about political correctness. And it’s it’s something I’m actually working on in the back end, which is kind of cool. It’s, it’s a it’s like a bit it’s going to be its own show its own podcast, it’s all about that. It’s going to be a non stop, you know, un-pc tirade of chaos. I’ve got dozens of examples lined up already of just how ridiculous our societies become. You know, it’s, it’s sad to me, because people deserve better. You know, we’re raising children in a sanitized environment. So then when they get older, you get the kids that we have now that need safe spaces that can’t protect themselves. You know, you don’t have men that can protect women anymore. Men don’t lay their coat down in the rain to let a woman step over and anymore, right? Because they say, oh, we’re all equal. So you could do it too. And eat my ass. Like a cupcake? Yeah, okay. Listen, I’m going to lay this out to you. really clear and really simple. Men need to be men.

17:34
That’s it. I don’t care. It doesn’t make a difference to me. Listen, women, you could be strong as fuck. And that’s cool. And there are so many awesome strong women. I’m raising my daughter to be one that I know plenty of them that I consider, you know, great role models for my kid of all different kinds. Whether it’s the one that could kick everybody’s ass, and you’ll be john Claude Van Damme is I guess, john, john Claude, john Claude Van Jane, I don’t know what you would call it. But whatever you would call but that type of person I wanted. And then the wildly intellectual one that’s going to go and take the business and science world by storm. So many wonderful examples out there doesn’t mean that the women can be strong and can’t be incredible and be 28 to be all about that 2018 work, you know, get your shit on and make it happen and do what’s best for you. On the same note, it doesn’t mean that men have to dress up like a feminine lumberjacks like they do today, where you see fellas with these full beards with more lotion and oil in their beard than their girlfriends and wives use on their bodies with flannel shirts and lumberjack attire yet they can’t change a car tire so what value is that if we flip our society to a complete 180 because a lot of these women that they want their space they want their time but they still want a man we haven’t become a society of feel autonomy where nobody needs to be connected to anybody anymore we could just exist and keep creating more humans in laboratories and nobody has to talk to each other’s each other anymore that’s not the direction hopefully that we’re going I mean listen I am beyond the procreation years at this point I’m not any more kids at 45 I’m done so I won’t be adding to the society but at the same note I want to make sure that my as she gets older as a society with good values to live in and if we’re living in a society that’s that’s telling you baby it’s cold outside is a horrible raping song but all these rappers out there and I’m not counting the comedian system that a funny that comedian bands out there that talk dirty shit all the time. Look at Steel Panther they made a living there amazing live band on top and not to mention there are also musicians really talented ones and they made a living off of being crass and dirty. And it’s a it’s funny they are literally the one last stand of non political correctness right so if you’re going to let people eat their ass like a cupcake then you should let baby be called that side and just leave her out there until she comes back in because it’s just to me it’s insane I I’ll never I’ll never understand why people get so bent about so many things and they’re so worried about everything else and everybody else and then at the end of the day and this is what I’ll leave you with at the end of the day the one thing they don’t look at is themselves

20:37
think about that one guys put that in your pipe and smoke it right I’m out of here I’ve got places to go got a mandate about to happen so I’m going to be killing what my bros hanging out a I don’t know what a diner some other place to go have a good time and I’m going to be on politically correct as humanly possible and potentially offend everybody in the room and be banned from a local eatery we can only hope right alright guys sat it out. And don’t forget go to unhinge pod calm if you want to see here this and other episodes you could also check out the blog I call it my transmissions page so you can see my transmissions I’ve been much more regular posting there and you can follow me on the old inner webs because go look for at I am a Lichtman and you’ll find me on Instagram you’ll find me on Twitter and Facebook we have a page but it’s just a broadcast page where all the other shit gets sent out to if you want to actually converse Instagrams good and so his Twitter on occasion but a man mostly Instagram right that’s the world we live in that would post pictures and talk about them. So that that’s that and I will be recording the podcast soon and bringing on guests. So you know this is it’s a growing process. This is episode number three technically. I mean, I’m not recording it as episode names. Everything is one of these and we just keep on rolling. But yeah, that’s number three in the cabin guys and I look forward to the next one. I will chat with you soon. Take care and be good to yourselves and to each other.

It’s been a while since the last podcast folks. As you may have read on the Transmissions pages I’ve been on vacation and taking care of some family issues. New Year, New Resolve! We’re back in business and a regular schedule. Very excited to officially kick this off as a regular series.

When you’re not in front of people. If you put me in a room with a couple of people, we’re going to have a good time. I guarantee it. It’s like the guy from the old men’s warehouse commercials, right? You’re gonna love the way you look? Well, I promise you. We all hang out in a room together. You’re gonna laugh and have a good time because that’s what that’s what I try to make happen. When I’m in a room with people. I want them to be jovial, tell stories, have some fun, you know, let their hair down. You know me included and just enjoy it. Enjoy the moment of being around other people that standing in a room full of other people than looking down at your fucking phone. Like a zombie texting people. What’s the point? Why be anywhere just go sit in your house and never leave. You know, lock make a closet. Make yourself a texting chamber. That has would be great idea. You take a closet, we put charging ports on all the walls. So no matter whatever fucking retarded angle that you’re sitting in that closet hanging from it like a bat, whenever you’re doing who gives a fuck. You can hang there. You could sit there, you could take a dump in a five gallon bucket for all I kept. But you’d be able to charge your phone plugin. Sit there with just a glow of your phone inside that closet the whole time and text until the fucking eyeballs fall out of your head or your thumb. Stop moving. I bet you some people would love it. I would be in hell other people. They’d be in heaven. So you know, it is what it is. It’s it’s our society man where we’re all texting, texting, texting, texting, texting. And that’s it. We’re not actually doing anything. We’re texting. You know, people are sitting on internet groups. And they’re they’re talking and they’re bitching and moaning. And they’re doing what they’re doing. But they’re not getting anything done. They’re just complaining, complaining for the sake of complaining. And that doesn’t really provide any value. Because then it’s just more noise. You You’re more of the fodder for what’s around there. And it’s bringing it all down. So now you get the political correctness machine. Yeah, the political correctness world What are you going to do? So you’ll sit there and text and at the end of the day you being wrangled in, right and this all comes back to baby it’s cold outside, right this is what everybody’s talking about people and making parodies online people to go and just fucking bonkers at the end of the day. Frankel Loeser lost her I don’t know how to say it properly. He wrote a song in 1944 to sing a duet with his wife. It wasn’t a Bill Cosby date rape song. It wasn’t an anthem to to abusing women. It wasn’t something intended to be bad. It was back in that time of those crazy 40s and 50s where people were getting shit faced drunk while wearing suits and ties and and standing there all elegantly and doing their thing it was an different era that we live in. So the song was a back and forth a lot of the comments about the lyrics that people were upset about those were common terms in those days that were known as light hearted terms of new things people would say well well out together and drinking together and having a good time together wasn’t this nefarious I’m going to drug you and fuck you mentality that people are trying to make it sound like now and you know even the dude and listen this is I’m not a radio station reviewer by any means. I’m not a radio personality I’m just me right I’m just another guy in your planet that has his own thoughts opinions and views on the world. 

12:00
But when the guy from Cleveland w do k which come on man, it should probably be w Ei k. Now because they’re known as w dick radio after this little stunt, it will be the whole thing that guy said was the fellow that was that was the host, Glenn Anderson.

12:07
He said that I’ve got the quote up here, so I’m going to read it directly. The world we live in is extra sensitive now and people get easily offended.

12:18
But in a world where lb to me to has finally given women the voice they deserve. The song has no place.

12:29
Glenn, you’re a fucking idiot.

12:33
That’s it. Man. I don’t know what else to tell you. You’re completely missing the point that this was a song from 1944. So let’s do this. Then. Let’s take it another step. Right? If you want to be politically correct, well, then, let’s go all in. Go balls deep in it, man. Let’s go Steel Panther style. Let’s just take this son of a bitch and go balls deep ban every movie that has that song in it. There’s probably hundreds. Hell, it was the main song at the end of the month, alpha Will Ferrell. So why don’t you take that off the Christmas shelves. Let’s see how the movie companies like it when they lose hundreds of millions of dollars. As opposed to a song on the radio that you know the ancestor of it is like in her 60s. Anyway. So there’s, you know that you’re talking about a song from so long ago. Who knows what the royalties are? I doubt it’s hundreds of millions of dollars. I doubt it will ferrell elf kind of money. So why don’t we take that movie off the shelves? Why don’t we take every movie that has that song off the shelves. So every single iteration of baby it’s cold outside. Remove every Christmas album off the shelves. Remove every movie that has it in off the shelves. And listen, if if you’re still listening, and you’re hearing this you have to be laughing and thinking Holy fuck. You know, this would be so stupid.

13:50
Your ‘Why would you go so extreme?’ Well, if a radio station which is supposed to be playing music can’t play music because some douche bag is too much worried about offending somebody from a song that was written there. What, 74 years ago. Remember, 74 years ago? Not last week. This didn’t come out yesterday. And not for nothing. We’re you know, we’re worried about baby it’s cold outside when you’ve got you know, rappers out there talking about you know, getting high and fucking every bitch inside and we’re cool with that. Like a you know, listen to Jay Z’s got 99 problems. But a big chain one. But baby it’s cold outside of that. And I play that song. Fuck me. I mean, right? You don’t play baby. It’s cold outside. But hey, we’ve got the new rappers talking about fucking and sucking everything in sight and shoving their asses in your face. And was it I don’t know, is it cardi B or C i don’t know who it is. But I saw the Q Park video. If you know q Park is he’s a hilarious internet celebrity on YouTube. And he really creates videos from I mean music I would never listen to any other way. But he recreates them in the streets of Manhattan. And he’s fucking amazing. You’ll go Google him on your YouTube me typing q Park. Q pa rk and don’t tell me this guy’s not funny as fuck because he’s amazing. He’s absolutely hilarious. And he was doing inappropriate songs with a guitar doing acoustic versions. I think it was cardi B and it was heat my ass like a cupcake that listen. I think that’s hilarious. I was laughing my ass off. When I saw it. It was it was amazing. You know, I had tears in my eyes. laughing so hard. I thought it was just the reactions of the people while he’s sitting there in a subway. strumming his acoustic guitar second eat my ass like a cupcake. I mean, it was great. The people that don’t know the song naked. The ones that do just smile and be like, all right, they know you could tell. I don’t even know the fucking music. And I can tell which people know the music. It’s the ones that look at him. Like, what are you from? Am I safe? Those are the ones that make you laugh. And we live in a world where that song is cool. Eat my ass like a cupcake. But baby it’s cold outside. Fuck. No, no, you stupid dirty animals. You can’t play that on the radio anymore. No more baby. It’s cold outside, double down on eating my ass like a cupcake. So that’s how I feel about political correctness. It’s bullshit. We pick and choose where we want it to be. You know, look at George Carlin and the seven dirty words he can’t say on TV. It’s high time for an updated version of that about political correctness. And it’s it’s something I’m actually working on in the back end, which is kind of cool. It’s, it’s a it’s like a bit it’s going to be its own show its own podcast, it’s all about that. It’s going to be a non stop, you know, un-pc tirade of chaos. I’ve got dozens of examples lined up already of just how ridiculous our societies become. You know, it’s, it’s sad to me, because people deserve better. You know, we’re raising children in a sanitized environment. So then when they get older, you get the kids that we have now that need safe spaces that can’t protect themselves. You know, you don’t have men that can protect women anymore. Men don’t lay their coat down in the rain to let a woman step over and anymore, right? Because they say, oh, we’re all equal. So you could do it too. And eat my ass. Like a cupcake? Yeah, okay. Listen, I’m going to lay this out to you. really clear and really simple. Men need to be men.

17:34
That’s it. I don’t care. It doesn’t make a difference to me. Listen, women, you could be strong as fuck. And that’s cool. And there are so many awesome strong women. I’m raising my daughter to be one that I know plenty of them that I consider, you know, great role models for my kid of all different kinds. Whether it’s the one that could kick everybody’s ass, and you’ll be john Claude Van Damme is I guess, john, john Claude, john Claude Van Jane, I don’t know what you would call it. But whatever you would call but that type of person I wanted. And then the wildly intellectual one that’s going to go and take the business and science world by storm. So many wonderful examples out there doesn’t mean that the women can be strong and can’t be incredible and be 28 to be all about that 2018 work, you know, get your shit on and make it happen and do what’s best for you. On the same note, it doesn’t mean that men have to dress up like a feminine lumberjacks like they do today, where you see fellas with these full beards with more lotion and oil in their beard than their girlfriends and wives use on their bodies with flannel shirts and lumberjack attire yet they can’t change a car tire so what value is that if we flip our society to a complete 180 because a lot of these women that they want their space they want their time but they still want a man we haven’t become a society of feel autonomy where nobody needs to be connected to anybody anymore we could just exist and keep creating more humans in laboratories and nobody has to talk to each other’s each other anymore that’s not the direction hopefully that we’re going I mean listen I am beyond the procreation years at this point I’m not any more kids at 45 I’m done so I won’t be adding to the society but at the same note I want to make sure that my as she gets older as a society with good values to live in and if we’re living in a society that’s that’s telling you baby it’s cold outside is a horrible raping song but all these rappers out there and I’m not counting the comedian system that a funny that comedian bands out there that talk dirty shit all the time. Look at Steel Panther they made a living there amazing live band on top and not to mention there are also musicians really talented ones and they made a living off of being crass and dirty. And it’s a it’s funny they are literally the one last stand of non political correctness right so if you’re going to let people eat their ass like a cupcake then you should let baby be called that side and just leave her out there until she comes back in because it’s just to me it’s insane I I’ll never I’ll never understand why people get so bent about so many things and they’re so worried about everything else and everybody else and then at the end of the day and this is what I’ll leave you with at the end of the day the one thing they don’t look at is themselves

20:37
think about that one guys put that in your pipe and smoke it right I’m out of here I’ve got places to go got a mandate about to happen so I’m going to be killing what my bros hanging out a I don’t know what a diner some other place to go have a good time and I’m going to be on politically correct as humanly possible and potentially offend everybody in the room and be banned from a local eatery we can only hope right alright guys sat it out. And don’t forget go to unhinge pod calm if you want to see here this and other episodes you could also check out the blog I call it my transmissions page so you can see my transmissions I’ve been much more regular posting there and you can follow me on the old inner webs because go look for at I am a Lichtman and you’ll find me on Instagram you’ll find me on Twitter and Facebook we have a page but it’s just a broadcast page where all the other shit gets sent out to if you want to actually converse Instagrams good and so his Twitter on occasion but a man mostly Instagram right that’s the world we live in that would post pictures and talk about them.
