A Transgender Activist in San Francisco is marketing child-sized dildos to “transgender” children; to create the illusion that there is a “bulge” in the child’s pants. Because that is very important, apparently.
I sincerely hope this is some kind of hoax. But it seems to be a real thing.
This issue does have a lighthearted side, though. Reflecting on her search to find her son appropriate products, Ellie describes her situation as “tragicomic.”
“I’m an adult, married heterosexual woman who doesn’t have a child with a penis,” she says, “I don’t really know what children’s penises look like and yet I’ve had really explicit conversations with strangers about children’s penises.”
I always wonder how much of the left’s obsession with “LGBT Youth” is thinly veiled … you know what.
Thank you, Protein Wisdom.
Question: It’s concerning to me that you’re telling lesbians they are bigoted/transphobic/vile for being exclusively attracted to females (referring to the female sex, to clarify), and accusing lesbians of contributing to the deaths of trans women by not having sex with them. Is it very difficult to understand that people have reasons for not wanting to have sex with male bodied individuals including previous experiences and also just the fact that their sexuality is inherent? Requiring sex as a form of validation from females comes across as worryingly entitled and very coercive.
Answer: There is no “female sex”.
Coercively gendering biology is violence.
Trans women are not “male bodied”. You’re assuming you know a trans woman’s biological features, for a start. Some trans women have penises, some have vaginas, some have other genitals. Some trans women have oestrogen dominant hormone profiles, some have testosterone dominant, some have other hormonal makeups. Some have boobs, some don’t. But in all cases, they are women, they are female, and therefore – as long as they choose to define themselves as such – they are female bodied.
This is why it’s so hard to distinguish parodies of progressive thought from actual progressive thought.
Britain’s answer to Bernie Sanders — Jeremy Corbyn — was just elected leader of Her Majesty’s Most Loyal Opposition. The less fanatically insane members of the Labour Party are beginning to regret that their party has descended into lunacy.
I come from a left-wing family, marched against Margaret Thatcher and was one of the first journalists to denounce New Labour’s embrace of corporate capitalism — and I don’t regret any of it. But slowly, too slowly I am ashamed to say, I began to notice that left-wing politics had turned rancid.
‘Tory, Tory, Tory. You’re a Tory.’ The level of hatred directed by the Corbyn left at Labour people who have fought Tories all their lives is as menacing as it is ridiculous. If you are a woman, you face misogyny. Kate Godfrey, the centrist Labour candidate in Stafford, told the Times she had received death threats and pornographic hate mail after challenging her local left. If you are a man, you are condemned in language not heard since the fall of Marxist Leninism. ‘This pathetic small-minded jealousy of the anti-democratic bourgeois shows them up for the reactionary neocons they really are,’ a Guardian commenter told its columnist Rafael Behr after he had criticised Corbyn.
Sounds terribly familiar, does it not?
Feminist (of course) says billionaires are building rocket-ships so they can destroy the Earth and sip Cognac and smoke cigars in their outer space palaces.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is the latest tech billionaire to invest his money in spaceships: on Tuesday, he debuted his space travel company Blue Origin’s newest rocket. Now, those who want to cruise the galaxy can choose between the sleek new rocket and the stubbier model Bezos announced in April – or they can opt to ride with Tesla founder Elon Musk on a SpaceX ship, or hop on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic.
Which raises the question: are they just gearing up to wash their hands of the planet and leave the rest of us to clean up? By pushing outward while ignoring the problems it causes back on the home turf, are they effectively creating a galactic upper class that rests on the backs of the earthbound? Even if that’s not literally the plan, it may be the ultimate outcome.
I guess this is why we need to elect Bernie Sanders; so we can take their money away from them before they can spend it on rocket-ships.
An SJW at Oberlin college is angry at white people for appropriating soccer.
Your (sic) not latino, call it soccer. You don’t play futbol. Futbol is played with people (LATINO) who know how to engage in community soccer, as somebody who grew up on the cancha (soccer field) I know what playing futbol is, and the way you take up space, steal the ball, don’t pass, is far from how my culture plays ball.
So, I guess in order to keep all sports racially pure, we now must ban non-Europeans from playing tennis, polo, baseball, basketball…
Also, no playing lacrosse unless you’re an American Indian, and no playing hockey unless you’re French Canadian.
Remind me again how there’s a “War on Women?”
At a congressional hearing on campus sexual assault, Colorado Rep. Jared Polis (D) suggested that expelling students based solely on the idea that they might have committed a crime is an acceptable standard. And the hearing audience applauded him.
“I mean, if there’s 10 people that have been accused and under a reasonable likelihood standard maybe one or two did it, seems better to get rid of all 10 people,” Polis said. “We’re not talking about depriving them of life or liberty, we’re talking about their transfer to another university.”
“I mean, if I was running one I might say ‘well, you know, even if there’s a 20 or 30 percent chance that it happened I wouldn’t want … I would want to remove this individual,’” Polis said. “Why shouldn’t a private institution, in the interest in promoting a safe environment, use an even lower standard than a preponderance of evidence, like even a reasonable likeliness standard?”
[Trigger Warning for Highly Uncivil but Completely Accurate Language] Deranged, paranoid, homosexual David Brock (of the George Soros-funded anti-conservative “watchdog” group Media Matters for America) has declared that the New York Times is a “megaphone for conservative propaganda” because it has been mildly critical of corrupt, incompetent Democrat Hillary Rodham Abedin Clinton.
In the book, titled “Killing the Messenger: The Right-Wing Plot to Derail Hillary Clinton and Hijack Your Government,” Brock accuses senior politics editor and former Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan of helping to turn the paper into a “megaphone for conservative propaganda” by unfairly targeting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. …
“As it concerns Clinton coverage, the Times will have a special place in hell,” he writes, claiming that interviews with current Times employees prove his case.
Now the question is, does Brock really believe this nonsense? Probably not, any more than he believes any of the other crap MMFA puts out every day. This most recent hissy-fit is all about propping up the Hillary campaign, of which Brock is an avowed supporter. Perhaps because Brock and Hillary share in common a deep paranoia about the “right wing,” a fondness for large checks from foreigners, and a penchant for skirting laws that would restrict their political and financial ambitions.
MMFA retains its status as a tax-exempt “non-partisan” organization, despite Brock’s open admission that the group will advocate for and support the campaign of Hillary Rodham Abedin Clinton. But then, in this new, wonderful progressive age where the party rules and not the law, it is of little surprise because Obama’s IRS only targets conservative groups for enforcement of the law.
Apparently, The Walking Dead is racist. Partly because black characters die a lot. But mostly because EVERYTHING is racist.
We–people of color, and black people in particular–are this country’s zombies. We are the horrifying shadow suburbia is afraid will slip through the window at night. We are the reason for the U.S. history of stockpiling guns, dating back to fears of slave rebellions. Terror over the nation’s “browning” make us the shambling masses who drive people to lock their doors and fantasize about barricades and sudden flight. It’s not true for all of us who love zombies, obviously, and it’s usually not conscious–but it’s the simmering social subtext.
Social Justice Wankers are mad at Apple because at a product demonstration they used an app to make a woman smile. I am not making this up.
While telling women to “calm down” is problematic [smdh–EAP], so is demanding that they smile. Many a woman has heard this when she dares to appear emotionless or, perish the thought, angry or upset. Maybe she’s walking down the street, sitting on the subway, or simply concentrating on any given routine activity — whatever it is, if a woman is doing it without smiling, she’s apparently failing to live up to her feminine duty to pleasantly please all who encounter her.
Oh, also, there’s this woman who loathes her body so much that she has had her ladyparts surgically removed. She’s not becoming a tranny, she wants to be neither sex. The Tyranny of the Mentally Ill demands that we celebrate her mental illness and make no attempt to address with psychological therapy; because that would be barbaric. Surgical mutilation of a healthy human body, on the other hand, is the height of tolerance and enlightenment.
FWIW, she looks like a cross between Rachel Maddow and Pajama Boy.
A prominent and well-respected mainstream Lesbian feminist (founder of the group Justice for Women and research fellow at the University of Lincoln) reveals her solution to ‘Rape Culture’ and ‘Smashing the Patriarchy.‘
I would actually put [all men] in some kind of camp where they can all drive around in quad bikes, or bicycles, or white vans. I would give them a choice of vehicles to drive around with, give them no porn, they wouldn’t be able to fight – we would have wardens, of course! Women who want to see their sons or male loved ones would be able to go and visit, or take them out like a library book, and then bring them back.
OK, sweetie, we get it. You HATE Men.
Read the article; she isn’t joking. And while “putting all of them” into camp seems a bit extreme, consider that feminists are already demanding, and receiving, that college men be deprived of due process when women accuse them of any kind of unwanted sexual attention. And this position is supported and encourage by the current Democrat Administration.
And, by the way, can we set aside this Utopian feminist fairy-tale that when women are in charge, everything is perfect, because women are all about sisterhood, mutual support, and building cultures of cooperation not competition? Because anybody who has ever worked in an office with actual women knows that is load of crap.
And as for Ms. Julie Bindel and her vision of a feminist Amazonian utopia, I have literally seen this movie and I know how it ends.
Bureaucrats at the University of Tennessee have issued new speech guidelines to prevent Special Transgender Snowflakes from being traumatized by correct use of the English Language.
We should not assume someone’s gender by their appearance, nor by what is listed on a roster or in student information systems. Transgender people and people who do not identity within the gender binary may use a different name than their legal name and pronouns of their gender identity, rather than the pronouns of the sex they were assigned at birth.
… We are familiar with the singular pronouns she, her, hers and he, him, his, but those are not the only singular pronouns. In fact, there are dozens of gender-neutral pronouns. A few of the most common singular gender-neutral pronouns are they, them, their (used as singular), ze, hir, hirs, and xe, xem, xyr.
How do you know what pronoun someone uses? If you cannot use the methods mentioned above, you can always politely ask. “Oh, nice to meet you, [insert name]. What pronouns should I use?
If anyone were to ask me that, I would be likely to respond with the use of an imperative verb coupled with a second-person singular pronoun.
Meanwhile, at Washington State University.
Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” “male,” and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students.

At its heart, the Gamergate controversy is about the Social Left insisting on injecting… nay, saturating… everything with social left politics, and getting really snitty when people say “leave your politics out of our games, please.”
Anyway, apparently this happened.
A video game journalist from Vancouver recently took to Twitter to draw attention to a Tweet sent by a gamer: The gamer had tweeted: “I fucking swear—they get rid of Huge Boobs, I’m gone.” For this journalist those 11 words captured the essence of the gamer crusade. The hypermasculine dudebro attitude–— the crude objectification of women. It’s all there. Or so it seemed to him. As he put it: “#Gamergate summarized in one impossibly perfect tweet.”
But as is often the case with media accounts of GamerGate– the facts don’t really fit the narrative. First of all, the author was not talking about video games, but rather efforts to censor images of buxom ladies on Reddit. But more importantly—the author of the tweet is a young woman named Alison. Alison is a lesbian gamer who apparently enjoys gazing at images of busty women.
It would be nice to live in a society where we could play our video games, go to our sporting events, watch our entertainment programs and not be assaulted by the dogma of Social Justice Warriors. It would be just as nice to live in a society where journalists reported facts accurately, instead of molding them to fit a narrative.
Feminists, proving, once again, that every trivial slight is a Plot Against Womyn.(TM)
Air conditioning is another big, sexist plot.
“It’s been going on for years, every building I’ve been in. It’s awful,” said Marshall, who has worked in Washington since 1973. “Everything is set at 70 degrees for those testosterone-toting people.”
…And then there are the men, stalwart in their business armor, manipulating their environment for their own comfort
…So there you have it: the gender divide, thermostat edition. All these women who actually dress for the season — linens, sundresses, flowy silk shirts, short-sleeve tops — changing their wardrobes to fit the sweltering temperatures around them.
Previously, leftists have advanced the claim that air conditioning was “torture.” Because they’re nuts.
A Progressive Democrat who was once Jimmy Carter’s deputy campaign manager in California offers his vision for achieving political change in the USA.
In my view, the animals need a massive depopulation of the human race.
It may come in revolution, in climate disasters, in pandemics. But it must come.
The Earth cannot survive the human race, which for all practical purposes is a parasitic life form which annihilates other species, pollutes the air and oceans, and is responsible for climate change and the next mass extinction of hundreds of thousands of species.
If it were up to me, we’d start by eliminating Republicans.
Hey, at least he’s not talking about cutting the Federal budget; that kind of talk would be radical and extreme.

This liberal/progressive vision of sex is simply bizarre. It reveals a male-female (or male-male, or female-female, or transgender-male, or whatever– you get the drift) relationship that is barren of feelings, of intimacy, or even basic friendship. It is a mirror into the liberal/progressive mindset that trusts no one and sees trauma, offense, and microaggressions lurking around every corner.”
The Faustian Bargain of the Left (“The Government will let you do whatever you want in the bedroom without consequences, so long as you submit to complete Government control out of the bedroom.”) has come full circle. If leftists were more familiar with the Parable of the Scorpion, they would have seen this coming.

Do you want to fight the Islamic State and the forces of Islamic extremist terrorism? I’ll tell you the best way to send a message to those masked gunmen in Iraq and Syria and to everyone else who gains power by sowing violence and fear. Just keep posting that second set of images [of gay people celebrating the gay marriage order]. Post them on Facebook and Twitter and Reddit and in comments all over the Internet. Send them to your friends and your family. Send them to your pen pal in France and your old roommate in Tunisia. Send them to strangers.
That’s the lesson of history: Brutality and fear can keep people down for only so long. The Nazis learned this; the Soviets learned it; the Ku Klux Klan learned it; Pol Pot learned it; the Rwandan génocidaires learned it.
I had no idea that the Nazis and Soviets were defeated by hashtags and idiot transparent rainbows on facebook profile pics. This must be from the “Underwater Gay Sailor” school of strategic thinking.

A Social Justice Warrior has decided not to reproduce because it would pass her
mental illness white privilege to the next generation.
“There was a time in my 20s when everything I learned about the history of racism made me hate myself, my Whiteness, my ancestors… and my descendants. I remember deciding that I couldn’t have biological children because I didn’t want to propagate my privilege biologically.”
“If I was going to pass on my privilege, I wanted to pass it on to someone who doesn’t have racial privilege; so I planned to adopt. I disliked my Whiteness, but I disliked the Whiteness of other White people more,” she writes.
“I felt like the way to really end racism was to feel guilty for it, and to make other White people feel guilty for it too.”
If only we could get them all to take vows of non-reproduction.
