David Bozell: Over the weekend, I saw a video on the Libs of TikTok account. Libs of TikTok goes and finds clips of liberals saying what otherwise would be, I mean, what's normal, what's abnormal nowadays, I don't know.
Now, there's this girl that she posted last night who considers herself to be cattix, right? C-A-T-T-I-X. Who she goes onto suggest that she may have been a cat in a former life or she has some sort of spiritual connection with cats. It's a little difficult to sort of follow and process. And I bring this up, I'm not trying to be judgy on her, I kind of feel bad for, she uses a ton of big words, so she's not dumb by any stretch. She thinks she's researched this through and through. And at the end of the day, she's just a kid. So, some sympathy is a little bit in order, but this is her explaining it. I'll let her do it.
Yeah, so look, I don't understand the obsessions going on social media and declaring all these things. And this seems to be real prevalent on TikTok.
So look, I only bring this up because I have a personal anecdote here. We have a family friend who has experience with this. She started high school earlier this year. And first day of freshman orientation, she gets introduced to two kids, a guy and a gal who identify as cats and they're just meowing back and forth and they kind of refuse to engage to anybody unless they meow back. And if you've never seen anything like that or experienced something like that, it's a little startling. I mean, this is normal every day interactions, this isn't some sort of stage crew or play or something like that. This is freshman orientation we're talking about here.
But almost immediately notices were sent out by the school to parents and students alike because what would happen, these kids were wearing tails just to prove a point. And immediately notices went out saying:
Don't mess with them. Don't pull their tails.
Pulling their tails would be almost considered like a hate crime. They would send you off to be dealt with by the state attorney general and whatever fines and charges might be associated with that, might come along if you pulled their tails.
And I guess what I'm trying to say is, if I can just convince any young, high school guy out there, look, I was you, the temptation's going to be to mess with them. You're walking around in school, walking around the hallways, and all of a sudden you get sort of whacked by a tail walking by, just for your own good, just ignore it. Just ignore it. I don't know why they do it. I'm not a clinical psychologist. I don't even want to speculate. But it's not worth it.
If you're a parent of a young man, a grandparent, just tell them to let it go. And say a prayer, but don't put yourself at risk because this is a little bit of a bait. They want you to mess with them. They want that attention and they want to turn you in. So, do yourself a favor, just ignore them. Avoid them and try to enjoy your high school.
Alright, take it easy.
