Quote of the day—Ann Tinkham

If Freud were alive today, he just might contend that gun-obsessed guys in America never made it out of the phallic stage. With such a fun plaything, who would want to—right? If you substitute “penis” for “gun” in our national discourse, you’ll understand the gun thing. The right to bear a “gun.” Obama’s not going to take away my “gun.”

Gun owners contend that they should have the right to a concealed carry and should be able to stand their ground, in other words, whip it out whenever they feel threatened or whenever they feel like it period. Whip it. Whip it good.

If you’re reading this and you’re filled with indignation, you may just need a high-capacity gun to make up for your shortcomings. In the meantime, I’d recommend some good old fashioned Freudian analysis to move past the phallic stage.

[It’s another Markley’s Law Monday!

Amazingly enough there is a lot more in her blog post. What isn’t amazing is that my friendly comment congratulating her on becoming QOTD for a Markley’s Law Monday was in moderation for a while then deleted (Reasoned Discoursetm!). Anti-gun people are so predictable. It’s no wonder we have names for their behavior. I’ll bet evidence of Peterson Syndrome would be easy to find too.

She really gets into the gun equals penis thing. I started wondering if it was penis/gun envy or simple deprivation. It doesn’t really matter though. Dr. Joe’s cure for everything should solve her problems.—Joe]

  1. Odd, I never feel more vulnerable than when my penis is out, and my hogan is the last thing on my mind when I’m in danger.

    Do they even attempt to make sense?

  2. Waiting to see if my:

    Gun = Penis! Outstanding! Now I understand why feminists hate the 2nd Amendment.

    comment survives Reasoned Discourse.

  3. It started when I was a small child. I knew I was somehow different from many of the other children I played with. As I grew older, I sensed the difference – while other boys played football or dreamed about their first car, I’d collect my .22 and some ammo and stroll down to the rifle range on our farm to go plinking. When I became a teenager, my Dad’s gift of a .30-06 triggered a familiar tugging sensation. On my 21st birthday, when I received a Colt Trooper for a birthday present, I knew.

    Like many millions of similar unfortunate Americans, I suffer from Ballistically Induced Penis Enlargement Syndrome (BIPES). Endowed with small penises (or in some cases, no penis at all) sufferers of this malady feel a psychological imperative to compensate for penis size by the acquisition of firearms.

    Unfortunately, in a liberal world that enthusiastically embraces other sexual identity crises, those with BIPES find themselves the butt of ridicule and mockery. None would dare mock a member of the TGLB community – in fact, there are special hate speech laws that provide extra protections in this area. Taxpayer monies are spent to surgically correct the physical configurations of women who want a penis, or men who want to discard a penis.

    Yet, within this liberal Utopia of sexual identity empathy, victims of BIPES – a group that outnumbers the TGLB community manyfold – and even intersects it in some cases – are outcasts. How can liberals be so unfeeling? Why does this bigotry against such a widespread, yet innocuous medical condition prevail? No protections exist for hate speech against gun owners, who ironically have the skills and means to act upon violent threats efficiently and effectively, but patiently endure the threats and epithets. The treatment for BIPES victims is heavily taxed, restricted, and constantly threatened with eradication. And if, by some chance, a gun is used in a crime, the entire community is threatened with extinction. If a lesbian commits a sex crime, is there a liberal outcry to ban dildos?

    It’s time for the tide to turn. BIPES sufferers need to embrace our affliction and demand our due. With gender-change operations costing tens of thousands of dollars, and the cost for AIDS treatments spiraling upwards, is it too much to ask for BIPES patients to also receive the treatment we so desperately require? With quarterly to yearly treatments, BIPES can be controlled. Many BIPES patients struggle to find funds for treatment. Some go without. In a nation where every other sexual malady has become a matter of public health concern, with funding available for treatment, the relatively low cost of treating BIPES should not be a concern.

    Help treat BIPES, provide us with the treatment we need. Cease the mocking. End the embarrassment and embrace us in your liberal fold.

    A Barrett .50 is worth a year of compensation – please help.

  4. It is interesting that the left, which preaches tolerance, acceptance, and being non-judgmental (particularly when it comes to sexual things) is also so hung up on ridicule, hatred, pathologizing, and derision of those they disagree with in such a way. I think perhaps the fact that guns represent action, a choice that can’t be walked back when used (and therefore a total commitment) that scares those that live in a place where all the really counts are words. Maybe http://www.americanthinker.com/printpage/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.americanthinker.com%2F2007%2F08%2Fcourage_cowardice_and_the_word.html has it right.

  5. What’s with the whole Code-Pink Vagina obsession and the fixation about rendering men with penises impotent? It it a Title-IX thing?

  6. She’s absolutely wrong on Freud. In women, the phallic stage manifests as penis envy, which she is showing TONS of. She’s still blaming her mother for her symbolic castration, and in return, she wants to symbolically castrate the entire country.
    She’s the one hung up on penises, and her Electra complex has made her a hoplophobe. She’s displaced her sexual desire for her father to a loathing of guns.

    • Oh, I LIKE this response. Reply to stupid penis-jokes with high-caliber Freudian psycho-babel in the same vein.

  7. Actually, Freud opined that anyone who was afraid of guns was psychologically and sexually immature. Two of his sons were army officers so he was acquainted with firearms.

    • It’s crazy talk. Don’t try to make sense of it or expect a rational engagement to affect her beliefs.

  8. Your comment vanished because she thinks you are a crackpot and she has no desire to play your game with you.

  9. Freud was a disturbed man, and fond of projecting his own issues into his work. Honestly I give him very little consideration when it comes to anything psychological, unless its is the psychology of projecting your issues onto others. Why any normal person would give him any weight at all is beyond me, but in this case the antis are also fond of projecting, so I guess it makes sense. . . .
