This Is Pretty Horrible If It’s True

David French wonders if the left’s transgender zeal is victimizing the mentally ill.

I ran across this heartbreaking interview of a University of Michigan-Flint social work professor whose 19 year-old daughter is “transitioning.” She’s autistic, and she’s been influenced by everything from pop culture to support group meetings to believe that she’s really a man. The story is tragic:

She started attending a local PFLAG meeting, where she met many trans people, including a number of FtoM trans teenagers who were raving about a certain “gender therapist.” Although the APA recommends a minimum of one year of “gender counseling” before surgery, this gender therapist (whom I consented to, before really understanding what I was doing) gave my daughter the go-ahead to have a bilateral mastectomy after only two sessions. This gender specialist never reviewed any of the Special Ed records or spoke to my daughter’s previous therapist, who had known her for a decade. And, crucially, she never asked my daughter, “Might you be a lesbian?”

It gets worse. As you might expect, her daughter wasn’t mentally equipped to understand the true consequences of her decision:

To give you some sense of my daughter’s level of understanding of what it means to transition, she told me recently that she believes that the testosterone “will grow her a penis.” I had to break the news to her that, although this is the mythology in the PFLAG meetings (where a number of the other young trans people are also autistic), this is not the case.

She has been taken advantage of. Healthy organs were amputated. This is insurance fraud, poor clinical practice, a violation of APA standards, unethical and unjust. It is a crime not just against women, but particularly against disabled women. So many of these young women who are “transitioning” are also autistic.

Despite stories like this, many states and professional associations are doing their dead-level best to render it not just unethical but also illegal to counsel teens away from such life-altering mutilations.

It is impossible to have an honest debate about the link between mental illness and transgenderism because to even suggest that a person who feels trapped in the wrong sex body would benefit from psychotherapy will result in accusations of bigotry and “transphobia.”

Obviously, the only “compassionate” thing to do to such people are to chemically and surgically mutilate them.

People in the Real World Less Insane than Feminists

You may recall some months ago when the Feminist Left threw a collective hissy-fit-tantrum-storm-PMS-overcharge because a scientist who had just landed a space probe on a comet shamelessly wore a shirt with a pattern of attractive women on it. Suddenly, a bunch of women who lack the technical competence to parallel park were attacking a guy who just landed a freakin’ space probe on a freakin’ comet over a fashion choice they disagreed with.

To the feminist and the Progressive Left Media Complex, his shirt was an outrageous attack on women and would somehow discourage young girls from ever pursuing a career in the sciences; because someday a penis-bearer might wear such a shirt to the lab at which point the strong capable feminist scientist would be triggered and reduced to a sobbing wreck.

Anyway, fast forward to now, and a guy who wondered “What would happen if I wore such a shirt in an environment populated by normal people?”

I wore the shirt to the family-friendly Food & Wine Festival at Busch Gardens, a Tampa-area theme park. I was hoping to get a rise out of people, to see offended scowls, muttering tones of disapproval, or even outright confrontation. I saw none of this. There wasn’t a single scowl, muttered remark, or disapproving glance. The shirt did, however, receive a number of compliments, an enthusiastic vote of approval from a few tattooed bikers, and joy from one of the park workers who actually recognized Elly Prizeman’s work for what it was and was thrilled to see the shirt that launched the shirtstorm in person.

The lesson from this little social experiment is that radical feminism, while it controls media, college campuses, and has a strong voice in government, has little impact on the sensibilities of the common man.

The other lesson is that radical feminists are nucking futs.

Trees Are Racists, Single Sex Bathrooms Are Vestiges of White Privilege

Posted by V the K at 7:32 pm - May 19, 2016.

The National Park Service is concerned that trees are racist symbols.

I am not making this up.

The origin of the bizarre racist lynching theory of national parks appears to be Carolyn Finney. Finney was an actress noted for, apparently, little more than an appearance in The Nutt House. Then she became a cause célèbre for race activists when she was denied tenure by Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management because her work didn’t meet academic standards.

Her supporters blamed racism, rather than her academic shortcomings, and protested vocally.

These days she’s a diversity advisor to the U.S. National Parks Advisory Board. What wasn’t good enough for UC Berkeley is good enough for national parks. She is also the author of Black Faces, White Spaces. In it she claims that “oppression and violence against black people in forests and other green spaces can translate into contemporary understandings that constrain African-American environmental understandings.”

Finney cites the work of Joy DeGruy Leary who invented a Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome that she claims black people suffer from. Affected by PTSS, black people experience “fear and mistrust of forests and other green spaces.” According to Finney, the tree is a racist symbol to black people.

“Black people also wanted to go out in the woods and eat apples from the trees,” Finney explains.” But black people were lynched on the trees. The tree became a big symbol.” Black people are triggered by trees and suffer Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome flashbacks. You can’t expect them to go to on a hike.

This is the intellectual caliber of the current ruling class; and this is how abolishing single-sex bathrooms has become the civil rights struggle of a very stupid age.

Speaking of which, the whole idea of Men and Ladies Rooms is also white male patriarchal privilege.

So, the Left contends that race and gender are just social constructs created by an oppressive society to coerce everyone to conform to roles. And so the left… creates an oppressive society designed to coerce everyone into conforming to their predetermined roles.

Crazy Australian Woman Artist stages and films her own rape, in order to smash the Patriarchy or something.

An Australian artist who filmed herself having sex with a stranger in a ‘mock rape’ says she wants the video artwork to challenge how society views sexual assault.

Sophia Hewson shot the project – titled ‘are you ok bob?’ – in her New York home, and is unveiling it in a Melbourne gallery this week.

The 31-year-old artist described her latest work as a ‘militant feminist’ piece, and said she hopes it helps ‘dismantle male power’.

Let me see if I figure out how this works.

  1. Film fake rape
  2. ???
  3. Patriarchy is dismantled.

Apparently, this woman has won some awards and grants for her artistic achievements. Which leads me to believe a person of the appropriate sex/gender/racial identification could win a grant by submitting an application consisting of nothing but the word “Patriarchy” repeated five os six hundred time.

Her piece reminds me of some of Democrat-Socialist Bernie Sanders’s failed attempt to write erotic fiction.

A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

The gay pastor who claimed someone at Whole Foods put the word ‘Fag’ on his cake has issued an apology (without actually admitting “It was me. I did it to get attention and money. I thought it would work because social leftists are gullible patsies with overwhelming vulnerability to bias confirmation.”)

Today I am dismissing my lawsuit against Whole Foods Market. The company did nothing wrong. I was wrong to pursue this matter and use the media to perpetuate this story. I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values, and especially the bakery associate who I understand was put in a terrible position because of my actions. I apologize to the LGBT community for diverting attention from real issues. I also want to apologize to my partner, my family, my church family, and my attorney.

I am left wondering if there was anyone who ever believed this was legit.

Furry Rights

Posted by V the K at 9:30 am - April 22, 2016.

There are people who identify as fuzzy cartoon animals; should businesses be required by law to provide them with litter boxes.

Though the media tends to cover furries, people who participate in the subculture interested in fictional anthropomorphic animal characters, with a detached sense of amusement, the actual community is as diverse and complex as any other. A new documentary “Fursonas” examines the subculture by exploring the various participants and factions within the community, as well as the public’s perception of them and various attempts to control their image. Part of the film follows Boomer, an androgynous furry who sought to legally change his name to Boomer The Dog and disgruntled much of the community for giving them a bad image. The film tells a universal story of identity and community by turning its eye at specific fandom, approaching it with respect and gentle humor.

Truthishly, even though I appear to be a cis-gendered male, I actually identify as a Lockheed L-1011. I demand that businesses be required to build hangars to accommodate my maintenance needs; and you’re a hater if you disagree.

Do Leftists Know They’re Insane?

Let’s start at the very top. The party that represents the American Left is choosing between two candidates for president. One is a thoroughly corrupt woman of no discernible accomplishments who represents the cronyism they claim to despise; all of which is forgiven because she is a woman which is very VERY important for some reason. And in order to remain competitive with the other candidate, she has been forced to adopt (or pretend to adopt) positions of ever-increasing detachment from reality in order to align with her party’s base.  This insane.

The other is an avowed adherent to a murderous philosophy of human subjugation that has brought economic ruin in every country where it has been tried; his supporters are passionate with insanity. One of the reasons his supporters are so insane with passion is that he is promising — in a nation where there is already a huge surplus of people with useless degrees in Humanities, Gender Studies, and Journalism — to make college “free.” Thereby producing even more people with useless degrees to enter an economy where the ruinous tax rates required to support such a scheme will depress economic activity even further.

Not to mention, in a nation where the working class is in decline for lack of jobs, the left is hellbent on importing as many unskilled workers as possible. This is insane.

The left is absolutely obsessed with brainwashing children.

A Tampa, Florida, mother was livid after her seventh grade daughter brought home an assignment – from her Spanish class – asking about students’ so-called privilege.

Apparently, being a white-skinned child automatically means you’re “privileged” and by implication guilty. The teacher in question also felt that the 12-year-old children should announce whether they were intersex or “genderqueer.”

Norwegian Leftist Feels Guilty For Being Raped by Immigrant

A left-wing Norwegian politician was raped by a Somalian immigrant. Now, *he* feels guilty for… I don’t know… being European and stuff.

“I got a strong feeling of guilt and responsibility,” Hauken wrote. “I was the reason he wouldn’t be in Norway, and instead be sent to an unknown future in Somalia. He had already done his time in prison. Would he get punished again, and this time much harder?”

Kind of the Eurotopian left in a nutshell: “We feel so much guilt because our ancestors had colonies and because we have money that we’re going to bring in uncivilized people to rape us and take our welfare; because we deserve it.”

“In his culture, sexual abuse is about power, not lust,” Hauken said. “And it’s not considered a gay action to be the one who engages in power and violence.”

“I don’t feel anger against my rapist, because I look at him as a product of an unjust world. A product of an upbringing full of war,” Hauken said.

What this all means, according to Hauken, is that refugees need our help more than ever.

I can’t even.

 A Quebec aboriginal man who repeatedly burned a five-year-old girl with a cigarette, leaving permanent scars on her face, arms, legs and genitalia, has been given a lenient sentence after a judge determined he is a “collateral victim” of residential school abuse.

Eurotopian Medical Ethicists: Live Organ Donations Should Be a Thing

In Eurotopia, it’s become common practice for doctors to end the lives of people who are disabled, terminally ill, or depressed. So, why let all those juicy red organs go to waste.

An article written by a gaggle of Netherlander doctors and medical professors in the Journal of Medical Ethics, now suggests taking the next step of directly harvesting-to-death sick, disabled, and mentally ill suicidal people (all eligible for euthanasia in both countries) without bothering with the lethal injection beforehand.

Post-Christian Eurotopia is like one gigantic Washington DC of elites thinking they know what’s best and shut up; they are as utterly devoid of morals, ethics, and scruples as a prototype AI put out on Twitter. And we all know how that worked out.

“Peace Activists” (a.k.a. Left-Wing Moonbats completely detached from reality) in Ann Arbor, Michigan (Berserkley-on-Huron) held a “peaceful Memorial service” (self-righteous posing opportunity) for 63 deer (wood rats) that were killed as part of a culling operation.

I am not making this up.

“We are doing a public call to peace,” said Ann Arbor resident Shunahsii Rose, memorial rally organizer and founder of In Sacred Balance.

Standing in a circle on the Library Lot next to the downtown library, they offered prayers, sang songs and passed a heart-shaped memento featuring an image of a deer as they shared their thoughts and reflected.

“In a universal capacity, we’re asking Ann Arbor to return to a path of peace, and this particular day we are offering a memorial to the deer that have been shot as a result of the Ann Arbor deer cull,” she said.

“Deer lives matter.”

I swear to Ra they actually said that.

Michael Moore Is a Fat, Washed Up, Drama Queen

Michael Moore’s value to the left has faded since his anti-Bush propaganda film Fahrenheit 911. In the Obama Era, with socialists in charge of the Government, the responsibility for creating propaganda has passed to the mainstream media; who have happily taken up the cause. But it’s really tough for drama queens to deal with being out of the spotlight.

Once way for a faded has-been to get attention is to attach oneself to someone whose star is rising. So, Michael Moore held up a protest sign outside one of Donald Trump’s building and begged the news media to pay attention to him.

Social Justice Warriors are spoiled brats, Science says so.

The president of Oklahoma Wesleyan blames the current campus tantrums on students who are taught to be “self-absorbed and narcissistic.” He’s on to something, according to Jean Twenge, who has reported an increase in narcissism among young people.  Narcissists have inflated conceptions of themselves and feel entitled to special privileges, while at the same time they’re quite brittle — if anyone questions their wonderfulness, they quickly take offense and turn extremely aggressive. (Remind you of anyone?)

The article goes on to note that the majority of these narcissistic brats are females; princesses spoiled by a lifetime of being told they were special and wonderful and superior to boys in every way.

As more Millennial women enter their thirties, I recommend investing in cat food companies.

Alas, success:

OK, so maybe the jihadists want us to make war on them. That’s only a problem if we lack the will to win, which is a topic for another discussion. Contrary to what the bubbleheaded bleach blond at Obama’s State Department thinks, ISIS and Al Qaeda are not motivated by a “lack of jobs.” They want to kill infidels. There are only two options; kill them or submit to them.

Her preferred response – Ignore terrorism and invite as many Mohammadans into Western Civilization as want to come here. because peace love and understanding – will only allow the jihadists opportunities to kill more infidels.

Her stance makes almost as much sense as the idea that you can stop criminals from shooting each other by taking guns away from responsible, law-abiding people. Which she also supports. Because guns are like toys, or something.

Milo Yiannopoulus has almost overtaken Lenore Skenazy as my most favorite difficult-to-spell social pundit.

Meet Professor Melissa Click: Fascist Brownshirt

Posted by V the K at 8:55 am - November 10, 2015.
Filed under: Leftist Nutjobs

People used to think I was being hyperbolic when I spoke of ‘the Fascist Left.’ I was not. The bullies at the University of Missouri have not only succeeded in removing the President and the Chancellor for being insufficiently radical, they have also blocked the press from speaking to the protesters. The reason for this should be fairly obvious; every time the public is exposed to the real hatred and radicalism that underlies the #BlackLivesMatter movement, they lose support. They cannot control their members, so they attempt to control access to them.

During the angry protests at the University of Missouri (“The President is insufficiently anti-racist, and this hurts our FEELINGS!”) a professor of mass media communication named Melissa Click threatened a student reporter for trying to cover the protest.  The Daily Caller has dug a little bit into Professor Click’s background.

Her biography at the University of Missouri’s website describes her as an assistant professor with a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Her research interests center on popular culture texts and audiences, particularly texts and audiences disdained in mainstream culture.

On Facebook, Click’s likes include Bitch Media, Everyday Feminism, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Indiana and Kentucky, MU LGBTQ Resource Center, MU Department of Black Studies, NPR and The New York Times.

Her current research includes studying readers of the tour de smut 50 [sic] Shades of Grey. She also studies Lady Gaga.The last time Click was published in any serious academic publication was in 2013. The topic was Lady Gaga.

Aside from the whole fascism aspect, the fact that publishing papers about Lady Gaga is considered a sound academic pursuit goes a long way toward explaining why people increasingly feel that higher education is a waste of time and money.

Trump 3; Sissyfag 0

Luke Montgomery (f.k.a. “Luke Sissyfag”) is a radical left gay activist attention whore with a penchant for making fetish videos of children using the f-word repeatedly. (Using the f-word a lot is a technique much embraced by people who think of themselves as brilliant but haven’t much talent.)  He did a pro-feminist video of little girls using the f-word, and more recently, made a video of Hispanic children cursing at Donald Trump using the f-word. He and a lot of other radical activists were pressuring NBC to cancel Donald Trump’s hosting slot on Saturday Night Live Should Have Been Cancelled 20 Years Ago. His group even offered $5,000 to anyone who would disrupt the show and call Donald Trump a racist. Like every Obama domestic and foreign policy, he failed three times over.

Alas, I am certain we have not seen the last of Mr. Sissyfag. His style of putting gutter language in the mouths of children is just exactly the level of discourse the Modern Left prefers.
