The British Medical Association has said pregnant women should not be called “expectant mothers” as it could offend transgender people.
Instead, they should call them “pregnant people” so as not to upset intersex and transgender men, the union has said.
“A large majority of people that have been pregnant or have given birth identify as women. We can include intersex men and transmen who may get pregnant by saying ‘pregnant people’ instead of ‘expectant mothers’.”
Feminists can’t figure out why so few men want to participate in the ‘Women’s March on Washington.’ It is indeed baffling. Third-wave radical feminists are usually so welcoming toward the presence of men What could possibly make men feel like they are unwelcome at this event?
And maybe real men don’t want to end up like this sad little beta-male.
Gerald Dudley, 33, is attending a solidarity march in Austin, where he works for a company that hosts pub quizzes. He said he wants to be much more outspoken in his support for women’s rights. “It’s not enough to say, ‘I’m not a misogynist,’ ” he said. “This year I am trying to put my money where my mouth is.”
To him, that means donating to feminist causes, seeking out more women’s perspectives in his reading, and calling out sexism when he encounters it. “When I hear a joke where the butt of the joke is a woman . . . Maybe I could say, ‘I don’t get it: Why is that funny?’ ”
Yeah, because everybody wants to be the guy who says, “That’s not funny,” and delivers a lecture after a politically incorrect joke.
Inclusive: A word social justice wankers use to mean “Straight White Men Not Welcome.”
Unhappy that radical feminists and diversity scholars are relegated to panels, that fat-shaming sexy costumes haven’t been banned from convention floors, and that comic cons as a whole have not turned into celebrations of “inclusiveness,” social justice warriors now want to host their own comic book convention.
It will still have the trappings of a traditional convention, they say, but straight, white males simply won’t find a home among the attendees, panelists, and exhibitors. “We are focused on women, LGBTQ, people of color and the disabled and providing these groups opportunities to have a platform where they can be heard, as well as geek out with other like-minded nerds within their respective communities.”
Now, what if a biological female identifies as a straight, white male? Would xe also be unwelcome at this event?
A dingbat leftist attempted to defend Generation Snowflake, and ended up proving why the “snowflake” label fits them perfectly. The reason modern children (and these are “children” in their twenties and thirties) need “safe spaces” is because… this is her actual argument… they can’t cope with the ordinary realities of life (and if you tell them to just buck up and deal with it you are…. because this is the Go-To tactic of the social left for everything — going to cause teenagers to commit suicide).
There’s the pressure to look attractive, the pressure to succeed at school, the pressure to be popular, the pressure to get a job, to get a home. If I were growing up now, I’d be terrified. I was pretty terrified in the 1970s, when I’d no idea how much more demanding and complex life was going to get. Are children wrong to feel these pressures? Can any parent honestly tell them that none of it matters and that life has a way of turning out OK?
No other generation has felt pressure to be attractive, succeed, get a job, and find a home? Parents are wrong to tell their kids that things are going to work out? SRSLY? Not only did previous generations manage to do these things, they did them with “Safe Spaces” filled with coloring books, teddy bears, and Play-Doh. Previous generations could actually cope with hosting campus speakers whose opinions they disagreed with, or elections that didn’t turn out the way they wanted.
The reason we call them “snowflakes” is because they have been taught since they were tiny children that they were all unique and special. but the word also commutates something so delicate it is destroyed by the slight bit of heat or pressure. It fits the generation of participation trophies and safe space perfectly.
It’s also because we’re too nice to go around calling them “p*ssies.”
The Upsilon Alpha Chapter of the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity at The University of Arizona (AEPi Arizona) tried to organize a “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” event – an international march done by men wearing high heels that raises awareness for – and helps prevent – rape, sexual assault and gender violence.
But last Tuesday, just four days before the event, Kaplan was contacted by Krista Millay, the director of the Women’s Resource Center. He was referred to as a “Fratboy” and told that “what he was doing was homophobic, transphobic and sexist.” He was also told that the Center thought the event was “sarcastic” and will have “no positive impact on anybody in any community.”
There are no winners here.
Social-justice warriors worldwide have rushed to point out how the month-long event, regardless of its good intentions, is too gendered. In a nearly unintelligible sentence published by Sydney’s Daily Telegraph this month, one critic wrote: “It’s disappointing that what could’ve served as a much-needed dialogue about the many ways in which men, trans men included, can express their masculinity without resorting to chauvinist caricatures is in danger of devolving into at best a pissing contest between bros about who can grow the most facial hair to prove their manliness and at worst an implicit endorsement of 1950s-style gender norms, complete with transphobia.”
“Movember irritates me because it’s not so much about cancer awareness as masculinity awareness. … Movember says that we protect men by celebrating masculinity. And that’s ridiculous,” wrote Jacob Brogan in Slate last November.
Jacob Brogan irritates me because he’s a Trump-grab-target who probably pees sitting down.
According to a popular meme in the gay left, Vice-President Elect Mike Pence supports forcing gay teenagers to undergo electrocution as part of conversion therapy.
I won’t use the best word to describe what this claim is, but here’s a picture.
The entire basis for this claim comes from a website that Pence created to support his 2000 bid for a congressional seat. Under “Strengthening the American Family,” there was, among other things, this sentence.
Congress should support the reauthorization of the Ryan White Care Act only after completion of an audit to ensure that federal dollars were no longer being given to organizations that celebrate and encourage the types of behaviors that facilitate the spreading of the HIV virus. Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior.
There is nothing in there about electrocution, or even “conversion therapy.” It’s about AIDS, and not encouraging people to spread it.
Hell, even the left wants to “change people’s sexual behavior,” what do you think those stupid “Affirmative consent” laws are about? What is indoctrination about safe sex and contraception if not an effort to change people’s sexual behavior?
There is more evidence to support the proposition that Barack Obama is a closet Muslim than there is in support of the proposition that Mike Pence wants to “electrocute the gay out of teenagers.” (Nowhere, for example, will you find an account of Mike Pence describing the screams of an electrocuted gay teenager as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”)
Since the Democrat Media Complex is all up in arms about “fake news,” why doesn’t this phony meme qualify?
Fake news that riles up part of the Democrat base is okay; always has been.
I shouldn’t have to explain this; I will probably have to explain this.
Below the jump, someone went out and got even more stupid than the gawdam #DiaperPin. It’s down there because leftists are incapable of expressing themselves without the F-word.
Social Justice Wankers have adopted the Diaper Pin as their latest symbol; I have no objection to this.
Stockholm had over a foot of Global Warming dumped on it last week; a record for the month of November. You would think Scandinavian countries located in what PJ O’Rourke once called “The Unheated Attic of Europe” would be able to handle a little snow. However, the socialist government of Stockholm decided … I am not making this up … that snow removal should take into account gender inequities and… yadda, yadda, yadda… big f–king mess.
Stockholm’s center-left government introduced a new “gender equal” approach to clearing the roads of snow last year. The policy states that sidewalks, public transport and bicycle lanes should be cleared before turning attention to the roads. The reason is that women are more likely to use sidewalks while men are overrepresented among commuters driving to work.
When the first major snow storm swept the capital last week, traffic went into a standstill as no one cleared the streets. People couldn’t get to work, schools had to close and commuters were stuck in traffic for hours without moving.

I’ve been sobbing for the past hour because who was just elected of president. I’m gay, a woman, and a pagan, and Donald Trump is extremely rude to women, and says that he wants gays and anyone other than people who believe in one god to go to correction camps.
Tell you what, pumpkin. If Donald Trump really does institute Death Camps for gay people, foreigners, and people who don’t “believe in one god,” then come 2020… I owe you a Coke.
Katy Perry — a woman with standards so low she had Russell Brand as a boyfriend at one time — calling for ‘Revolution’ (I don’t think she even knows what that word means and I’m equally sure someone had to spell it for her) because her candidate lost.
The NAACP… (which maybe should be renamed the NAADQ, Nation of African-American Drama Queens.)
“Even as we extend our congratulations to President-Elect Donald J. Trump, the NAACP, as America’s oldest and largest civil rights organization, must bluntly note that the 2016 campaign has regularized racism, standardized anti-Semitism, de-exceptionalized xenophobia and mainstreamed misogyny. Voter suppression, as the courts have declared, has too become rampant and routine.”
All the people in this video, but especially the chubby snowflake at 1:07 in. And all the college snowflakes who are so traumatized because their candidate lost that they can’t take their Midterms.
I haven’t checked in at any of the gay left websites… because, why bother?… but I can guess the fainting couches are soaked in tears.
All the left-wingers on Facebook replacing their personal pics with black squares.
Gosh… who else… I’m sure you can think of someone.
Update: We have a late entry from emotionally insecure California Senator Barbara “Don’t Call Me Ma’am, Soldier Boy” Boxer and someone named Chelsea Handler. I had to look up Chelsea Handler on Wikipedia to figure out who she was. Apparently, she’s sort of a Clearance Rack Amy Schumer.
The U2 frontman, famed for slipping into other people’s spaces without invitation, has been named the first-ever man on [Glamour] magazine’s annual list of notable women. It’s a decision that—although reminiscent of both a Parks And Recreation episode about a man being named “Woman of the Year” and a South Park episode about Bono winning everything—Glamour insists it did not take lightly.
So, first Caitlyn Jenner was Woman of the Year. Then, the new Cover Girl girl was a boy. And now this. It’s like men are just better at everything.
The picture in question shows a soldier “blacked up” – i.e. wearing standard camouflage paint – during a military training exercise. Anyone with any knowledge of the military knows this is a standard technique used by soldiers around the world to help disguise themselves in challenging combat situations, particularly when operating at night. In this particular instance the soldier was taking part in a jungle warfare exercise.
Yet no sooner had the picture been published on the MoD’s website – as part of a package of pictures marking the Army’s annual photography competition – than a brigade of politically correct zealots launched a tirade of abuse on twitter against the MoD, essentially accusing the Army of racism.
And yet, these are the people who are running our academic, media, and Government organs.
I am pretty sure (kinda guessing but pretty sure) that this song was the anthem for a whole generation of drag queens. And I’m also not sure the term “drag queen” is PC, but who cares? Not me.
Seen from the perspective of 21st Century “Completely Bat-Guano Crazy Social Justice Culture,” this song is, um… problematic.
First of all, the song is a celebration of what the left calls “Toxic Masculinity.” Note, the left does not mean to differentiate between toxic masculinity and good masculinity; to the left, masculinity in all of its forms is toxic and men must be indoctrinated to feel shame for their manhood.
There’s also an awful lot of heternormative gender-norming going on in it. That line, “There’s just one thing that I’m looking for and he don’t wear a dress” is enough to send transgendered transvestites scurrying for their Safe Spaces while speed-dialing the Diversity Office.
Proving that 1980′s drag queens were tougher than 21st Century Generation Snowflake.
Even the title is problematic. “I Need A Man.” Unless that’s followed by “Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle,” that isn’t going to fly with the Cult of Misandry that is Third Wave Feminism. A strong, independent third wave feminist don’t need no man.
Remember those guys I mentioned from the locker room yesterday? I didn’t convey all of the overheard conversation. After the shower, as three of them were getting dressed, I heard a conversation that went something like this:
Guy 1: “My ancestors came from Russia.”
Guy 2: “My ancestors came from Germany; we kicked your ass in World War 2.”
Guy 1: “My Russian ancestors kicked your ass right back1″
Guy 3: “My ancestors were Eastern European Jews and Roma; both of your ancestors kicked our asses in World War II.”
Who do you think would be more fun to hang out with? Those guys? Or the mewling Wankers at the University of Florida counseling students to dress as melting icebergs and endangered honeybees for Halloween; because dressing in actual fun costumes might be offensive.
“The only message we have is that if you feel like your costume could potentially be offensive to multiple people, don’t wear it,” Cochrane says. “If you have to question it, it’s probably not the best idea.”
Good Lord, we actually live in an era where people can’t handle the sight of a Halloween costume; and we’re supposed to cater to them.
I’m kind of a traditionalist when it comes to Halloween, BTW. IMHO, Halloween costumes that are just superheroes, or sexified occupational drag, and especially the ones that are bad puns…. just aren’t in keeping with the spirit of Samhain. If you’re going to be a freakin’ Ballerina Princess for Halloween, you better damn well be a horrifying monster ballerina princess with your eyes gouged out or a horrible mouth-face. Be something horrifying or gruesome; Michael Moore as a leather daddy, for example.
The winner of this week’s “Leftist Takes Offense on Behalf of Other People for Something Normal People Would Never in a Million Years Find Offensive in Order to Demonstrate a Superior Sense of Moral Authority” — The coveted LTOOBOOPFSNPWNIAMYFOIOTDASSOFMA Award — goes to Senior Editor Bill O’Sullivan of the Washingtonian Magazine, who says the phrase “To
State Start a Family” is a cisnormative microaggression trigger against those who can’t or choose not to have families.
“Start a family devalues any couple who doesn’t happen to have kids, for whatever reason. It even sells single people short, who may not have children but do have ‘chosen’ families of friends,” he argues.
It offends *him* because it might hypothetically hurt the feelings of some other group of people; thus he claims moral authority on their behalf and gets to call anyone who uses the phrase “start a family” a hate-filled bigot.
In last week’s column I wrote about cross-dressing former Olympic US athlete Bruce Jenner. Regrettably, this upset some people.
SBS comedy writer Rebecca Shaw was particularly infuriated. “In the very first sentence [Blair] does everything you are not meant to do if you are a person who cares about the lives of transgender people. Or if you are just a decent person,” she wrote.
“He refers to Caitlyn as Bruce, says that Caitlyn ‘is’ a man, and misgenders her over and over. This is not satire, it is not funny, and it is disgraceful.”
All fair points. I would only offer in my defence that Jenner is technically still male. Then again, he was involved in a fatal car crash just a few weeks after deciding he’s now a woman, which at least demonstrates an impressive commitment to his new gender. Following many decades of competent driving, Jenner can no longer reverse park.
There’s more, but you get the idea.
Remember when the left used to chant “Keep the Government Out of Our Bedrooms?” Ancient History. The modern Social Left is all in on Government Regulation of Intimate Human Relations.
The American Law Institute (ALI) will vote at its convention this coming week on whether to adopt a model penal code that would make “affirmative consent” when it come to sexual relations its official policy. Affirmative consent — or “yes means yes” — policies have already been adopted by many colleges and universities, and have become law in California and New York.
“Such a definition would shift the burden of proof onto the accused, something not currently permitted in the U.S. criminal justice system. The accused would have to prove that they received “communicated willingness.” This would mean that any time someone engages in sexual activity, they not only have to make sure they obtain this specific form of consent, but also proof of this consent. “
Consent forms for sex; brought to you by the Tranny Bathroom/Gay Marriage coalition.
[Don’t expect much posting from me today tomorrow; I’m off to North Carolina for a business meeting. So help me, if one more person says “Make sure to use the right bathroom, har-de-har-har,” I’m going to kirk.
A Special Snowflake of the “Non-Binary” variety whined to Preezy Obama that it and people like it “literally have no rights.” Jazz Shaw responds.
Wait… you “literally have no rights?” I realize this took place in England and we have no control over that, but the parallel to America is being widely cited in the media and she specifically referenced North Carolina. So at least in our country, exactly what rights are you being denied as a “non-binary” person? Our rights in this country are not gender specific, just as they aren’t race specific or bound to your religion, your height, your weight or anything else. The only ones I can think of where there’s even a question are marriage (which isn’t a “right” but has already been taken care of in the Supreme Court) and bathrooms, which do not fall under the Bill of Rights, but rather common decency.
Is someone beating you up or otherwise harming or threatening to harm you because of your “non-binary” status? That’s already against the law, and it’s equally illegal to beat up all of the boring old “binary” citizens as well. Are you being silenced by the government or barred from attending the church you belong to? Is someone telling you that you can’t own and carry a gun? (Okay, that last one is probably true depending where you live, but trust me… it’s not just you.) So what are these “rights” that you are being denied on the basis of your “non-binary” or “transgender” status or whichever of the rest of the 58 new gender definitions Facebook offers that you picked?
Derek Hunter at Townhall suggests that the reason there is a massive social obsession with whether people who are confused about their sexual identity should be allowed to barge into whatever bathroom they feel like is because having solved all the major problems of society… nobody is going hungry, nobody is really impoverished, nobody has to go without some sort of shelter … all we’re left is fights over triggers and microaggressions. There is some truth in that, but I think the other half is that our real problems… crushing national debt, fiscal unsustainability, economic decline, triumphalist Mohammedanism… are problems whose solutions are difficult and politically incorrect. It’s more advantageous for politicians to gin up phony baloney problems like transgender bathrooms, or the wage gap, or “climate change” that are easier to manipulate.
An LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarian) social justice wanker decided to make some sort of point about gay suicides or something by hanging nooses in rainbow colors from a tree at an Asylum of Higher Learning in Tennessee. However, some of the other inmates got all scared and offended and stuff.
“At Austin Peay University in Tennessee, the campus erupted in outrage when rainbow nooses were discovered hanging from a tree. Social media exploded and every social justice warrior on campus felt the need to express their displeasure. But later, it was discovered that the nooses were an art project by a student looking to draw attention to the high number of suicides in the LGBT community.”
Yeah, not even the wankers can understand each others’ points any more. Besides, isn’t it cultural appropriation for an LGBTQAA69IAXXXYZ artist to use nooses in a display?
Would the nooses have been okay if Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz had been hanging from them?
I’m not really sure how hanging rainbow colored nooses in a tree was supposed to help suicidal gay folk, but whatever.
