Ohio idiot wants to remove Buckeye tree because it’s “bisexual” June 20, 2012

There are idiots out there in spades. The vast majority of the U.S. Population falls into this category and the latest is from Ohio, the Buckeye State. Seems a gentleman, and I use the term loosely, wants the state to ditch the Buckeye because he’s discovered the tree is, well I’ll let him say it himself:

“The buckeye is our state tree and most of us gladly wear the nickname, “buckeyes.” But it is shameful and unacceptable that a bisexual tree should represent us! We are flaunting the Holy Bible!

I urge everyone to contact their state representative and demand legislation removing the buckeye as our state tree and condemning the use of the term “buckeye” as a nickname for residents of Ohio.”

The guy in question is one Jim Flechtner.

I need to school Flechtner a bit. There are a number of tree and plant species that are in fact bisexual. Rose, Lilly, and other large flowered plants, Birch, Pine, Oak – all of them have both the male and female equivalent sex organs on the same tree or plant.

I wonder about the state of education in this country when idiots like Flechtner spout such ridiculous nonsense.

Doing a little digging on Flechtner I don’t find much other than the fact that he said something so ridiculous. But one hit does allude to his Christian beliefs.

And there I have the answer – Christianity is not itself education. It is dogma. True education teaches one critical thinking skills to be able to tell when someone is full of shit, and when they’re not.

They include

I am so glad I’m moving the hell out of this backwards state.

This can’t be serious! If it is, it is one of the best pieces of ammunition against the religious right I’ve ever heard.

I think hell will freeze over – or the GOP will have its first openly gay candidate – before Ohio gives up “Buckeye’. This I gotta see.
