Social media has given us a wealth of bullsh*t that enters into our political system…..some are outrageous to the point of being moronic.
This is one of those ‘myths’ that social media has given us and that was picked up in our political discourse.
It seems that there is a rally around litter boxes in schools…..
You read that correctly….litter boxes…..
At a luncheon for Republican women in Mesa County, Colorado, last week, Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., warned that educators “are putting litter boxes in schools for people who identify as cats.”
To a person not steeped in the culture war battles over gender identity that have engulfed school districts nationwide, it’s the kind of claim that would sound bizarre and confusing — and, from high-profile GOP members, authoritative.
The week before, on Sept. 29, Minnesota GOP gubernatorial nominee Scott Jensen asked during a campaign stop, “Why do we have litter boxes in some of the school districts so kids can pee in them, because they identify as a furry?”
And during a legislative hearing last month in Tennessee, two Republican state lawmakers discussed the “growing crisis” of public schools providing litter boxes for children who identify as cats, and claimed it’s happening across the state.
At least 20 conservative candidates and elected officials have claimed this year that K-12 schools are placing litter boxes on campus or making other accommodations for students who identify as cats, according to an NBC News review of public statements.
Every school district that has been named by those 20 politicians said either to NBC News or in public statements that these claims are untrue. There is no evidence that any school has deployed litter boxes for students to use because they identify as cats.
Seriously? Litter boxes in schools?
Just how far can these morons take total bullsh*t?
Worse yet there are those mental midgets that will believe this stuff….and will vote accordingly.
What kind of mental midget believes this crap?
Social media is ruining this country and our political process…..at what point is enough enough?
This puts those that believe this crap into the “Can’t Fix Stupid Files”
I weep for their stupidity.

I reached the age of 70 before I had ‘heard it all’!
Litter boxes for kids who identify as cats? Society is doomed, no doubt about that. I am so pleased I will die soon.
(I avoided swearing!)
Best wishes, Pete.
THis is one that makes me think just how stupid our society has become. chuq
There are also some public venues who are putting mirrors on walls, near the floor, so that Conservative idiots can practice finding their own asses in the mirrors but so far the experiment has not produced any identifiable results because of the enormous amount of failures by those right wingers participating in the exercise. The failure rate is currently around 99.99 percent. The individual who managed to accomplish the task did it by accident.
