... might not be such a good idea for anyone.
Rachel Dolezal is a white woman who "self-identifies" as a black. She's clearly a loon. Her race is objective reality and she refuses to accept that. She's like the drunk lunatic I once met in a bus depot who told me he was Mario Andretti's test driver.
The difference between her and the drunk is that she's delusional about race. Dittos for Bruce Jenner. The difference between Bruce and the drunk is that he's delusional about sex. Sex and race are magic somehow and all judgment is thrown out the window where they're concerned. Both Rachel and Bruce can find a large number of people who will cater to their delusions because Rachel and Bruce serve the causes of racialism and sexual libertinism.
Rachel is on Twitter. The notoriety she's gained from the racialist crowd has led her to have plenty of followers - she's got a decent sized megaphone. Yesterday, she wailed, "I AM BLACK!" as a tweet in reply to people who were making fun of her. She has since restricted her Twitter stream, so I can't embed it here.
Because she's such a cause célèbre and because she's mad, there's no lack of people snarkily pointing out reality. Poor Rachel has got enough problems without this. The drunk at the bus depot was able to struggle with his delusions in relative peace and quiet, but Rachel is out there on display. Her "allies" in the racialist movement don't care about her, they just love the turmoil and conflict. That she is tormented by her insanity and the insults piled on her doesn't matter to them. They're cashing in on all of this in the form of attention from the press.
Meanwhile, a very sick woman is screaming out on Twitter.
