We live in a world where all one has to do to be considered a woman is to add breasts and parade around in women's clothing. That's it. He's a she, now, and you're a horrible person if you still call him "he," because - well, she wants to be called a woman. Inside, there are all the man parts, and none of the women parts, but we are forced to do it because "she" wants it that way. OK then. That's a degradation of standards.
When you lose track of standards, anything passes for ... anything. That's how the ball starts rolling downhill, and this ball has been rolling downhill for decades. It didn't start with confusing sexual orientation, and it won't stop there either - but it isn't helped by it, and I chose to lead with it to demonstrate a point, such as it is.
We have elected a president who, by some standards, is the "people's choice." What Lyndon Johnson called "The Silent Majority" was heard loud and clear by our Electoral College, and we now have sitting in the White House a man who is best known for putting his name on buildings and telling people on a TV show, "You're fired."
Part of the problem is that our best and brightest don't want anything to do with the job, so people whom we would elect in a heartbeat prefer to sit on the sidelines and earn billions of dollars while they figure out ways to keep their fortunes intact while the government gives it away. That's capitalism.
You can put a suit and tie on an idiot businessman [slash] celebrity and call him "president," but that doesn't make him a presidential. It's a degradation of standards. But, we still have to call him the President.
It's like that.
