A Question for our Age

Posted by V the K at 9:37 am - June 23, 2017.
Filed under: Transgender Issues

A Virtue Signaling Uber-Social Justice Wanker asks: “Why Can’t My Famous Gender Nonconforming Friends Get Laid?”

My guess: Because “gender non-conformity” is usually an outward sign of massive psychological issues and very few people are willing to date people with more baggage than Aretha Franklin on a European Tour unless there’s a lot of money involved.

Does Camille Paglia’s example prove or disprove a notion that women shouldn’t vote?

A commenter pointed us to this Weekly Standard interview with Camille Paglia. As in most of her work, she says true and fascinating things – on the way to wrong conclusions. As a sample, here she is on the election:

Hillary, with her supercilious, Marie Antoinette-style entitlement, was a disastrously wrong candidate for 2016 and that she secured the nomination only through overt chicanery by the Democratic National Committee, assisted by a corrupt national media who, for over a year, imposed a virtual blackout on potential primary rivals…

After Trump’s victory (for which there were abundant signs in the preceding months), both the Democratic party and the big-city media urgently needed to do a scathingly honest self-analysis, because the election results plainly demonstrated that Trump was speaking to vital concerns (jobs, immigration, and terrorism among them) for which the Democrats had few concrete solutions…

She has much more to say; RTWT. For example, she slams the transgender movement of today as dupes of Big Pharma:

…the pharmaceutical industry, having lost income when routine estrogen therapy for menopausal women was abandoned because of its health risks, has been promoting the relatively new idea of transgenderism in order to create a permanent class of customers…I condemn the escalating prescription of puberty blockers (whose long-term effects are unknown) for children. I regard this practice as a criminal violation of human rights.

And she covers President Trump’s recent “infrastructure” speech, which indeed was awesome.

But then, whom did Paglia support? (Disclosure: I supported no one; a registered Independent, I came close on Gary Johnson but even he wasn’t good enough for me.) As Paglia explains:

I am a registered Democrat who voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primary and for Jill Stein in the general election. Since last Fall, I’ve had my eye on Kamala Harris, the new senator from California, and I hope to vote for her in the next presidential primary.

Which is downright silly.

In travelling the “alt” opinion world, one occasionally comes across a strange theory that women shouldn’t vote. Here is an example from the vlogger Black Pigeon Speaks (who is center-Left on many issues, but right-ish on immigration, culture and terrorism). For the record: I disagree with the theory (that is, I think women should vote). But I’m going to describe it.

The essence of the theory (which again, I think is a broken theory) is that biology has wired men to take stands on issues and to initiate projects in the world; while it has wired women instead to be concerned with immediate safety and securing benefits from the group (and/or some patron). Because of that, says the theory, women voters over time will drag a country toward both appeasement (of its enemies) and socialism. Which is not good.

Is Camille Paglia evidence for that theory? Here we have a woman with a talent for grasping and expressing truth, yet she still can’t see through the people-destroying ruse of socialism.

Women-Only Spa Uncomfortable With Transgendered People Hanging Out

Posted by V the K at 8:49 am - June 15, 2017.
Filed under: Transgender Issues

There’s a spa in Toronto, America’s Hat, that had a strict ‘Women-Only’ policy. This has caused hurt feelings among pretend-women and their virtue-signaling friends who use them as social accessories.

Controversy over a female-only spa’s “no male genitals” policy has reignited debate over the rights of transgender people to access traditionally gender-exclusive spaces, even as the federal government pushes stronger protections prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity and gender expression.

The uproar over Toronto’s Body Blitz Spa prompted a flurry of complaints on social media, with longtime regular Shelley Marshall among those vowing to boycott the luxurious retreat.

Marshall says she tried to bring her transgender friend to the spa last year but was told she would only be welcome at the bathing suit-optional facility if she had undergone sex reassignment surgery.

“I didn’t want to embarrass my friend, I didn’t want to humiliate my friend, I didn’t want all this to happen,” Marshall says of not speaking out at the time. “I’m embarrassed I never stuck up for my friend.”

Toronto-based LGBTQ author Jia Qing Wilson-Yang tweeted last week that she was told not to visit the spa because they “won’t allow male genitalia.”

Here’s a suggestion; the spa should declare that it is only trying to be “Sharia Compliant.” That should shut them up.

Radicalized by a Culture of Hate

Transgender person murdered co-workers because xe hated men.

Pennsylvania supermarket shooter Randy Stair left behind a trove of material explaining his motivations for gunning down three of his co-workers. In his recorded suicide notes, released just hours before Thursday’s rampage, the 24-year-old talked extensively about his depression and about who he was as a person—a transgender woman who hated men and toxic masculinity.

“And I just started hating guys more than anything. I hate guys, I think they’re [expletive] disgusting—the facial hair they have, the body hair, the muscle build, and all that [expletive] body structure [expletive]. I hate. Everything about guys I hate,” continued Stair.

I’d like to say the dude had some serious mental issues, but that would be transphobic.

The sentiments that men are disgusting, that masculinity is toxic, and that all men should be put to death are not uncommon in radical feminist circles.  The idea that masculinity is toxic has wide credence on the left, to the degree that  some universities now indoctrinate male students that they should be ashamed of maleness and strive to be more feminine.

But the anti-masculinity left need not worry about censorship. No one is going to ask them to tone down their rhetoric. It’s not like they’re white southerners or some other animals who are less equal than other animals.

That awkward moment when Lou Reed is doubleplusungood crimethinkful

Old and busted: Lou Reed is so cool. He did a song about trannies that makes the squares uptight!

New hotness: Lou Reed is so bigoted. He did a song about trannies that makes us SJWs uptight!

A student group at the University of Guelph in Canada has apologized for including the Lou Reed song “Walk on the Wild Side” on a playlist at a campus event…

The Guelph Central Student Association wrote “We now know the lyrics to this song are hurtful to our friends in the trans community and we’d like to unreservedly apologize for this error in judgement.”…

In a further statement a spokesperson said: “The lyrics, ‘and then he was a she,’ devalues the experiences and identities of trans folks.

Huh? How?

Points to Ponder

Camille Paglia to genderbending social activists who have anointed themselves the Pronoun Police Gestapo:

“But this political agitation to change everyday, common speech, are you kidding me? People shouldn’t be putting up with this for one second. What kind of nonsense is this? Absolute nonsense.”

“These people who are searching for their own identity, and want to impose on others. That is not my philosophy as a libertarian; that is an invasion, an intrusion into other peoples’ personal rights. The English language is owned by everyone. It was created by great artists. Shakespeare and Chaucer. Wordsworth and Joyce and so on. How dare you, you sniveling little maniac, tell us how we’re going to use pronouns. Go take a hike!”

And a blogger called the Z-Man wonders whether the Social Left’s Gender-bending theatrics isn’t a massive Orwellian game of forcing people to profess that 2+2=5. Either as a means of expanding authoritarian control of society as the natural end-state of progressivism.

A society in which no one knows the rules, except the rulers, is a society that cannot self-organize. It must fall into authoritarianism. In fact, it must embrace authoritarianism, because there must be order. Even the madness of North Korea beats anarchy, where it is a war of all against all. To no small degree, the people pushing the denial of biological reality are doing so in order to expand their authority over the rest of us.

There’s another angle here though, one that is not reductionist. Progressives have been in control of America since the Civil War. The great industrial wars of the early 20th century, then the long Cold War, worked to restrain some of the worst impulses that are let loose when a person or group has unchecked power. Those restraints are gone so all of the reckless tendencies of Progressives can be indulged, seemingly without consequence.

In other words, this reality denying madness we see going on with Progressives, has a late phase degeneracy vibe to it. Most of this nonsense is happening in well insulated compounds like the college campus. The Progs have total control so all of their worst instincts are free to run riot. It’s not some new phase in the long civil war, but the final burst of maniacal lunacy before there is the knock on the door and reality bursts in.

… The Transgendered are angry because feminist p*ssy hats imply that one can only be a woman if one has a vajayjay.

I am not making this up.

Signs at the Women’s March reading “Pussy power” and “Pussy grabs back” deliver “a clear and oppressive message to trans women.” That oppressive message is: “having a vagina is essential to womanhood.”

Solis goes on to quote a transgender woman who was offended by feminists holding “signs that equate womanhood with having a vagina” — and even more offended by a subset of feminists who point out that “trans women are actually men in disguise trying to infiltrate their spaces.”

Maybe they should just take a Midol or something.

Tranny activist says, “Some women have penises, deal with it.”

“If you’re a woman who only likes women, go ahead, identify as a lesbian,” Dennis says, “but some women have penises. And if the fact that some lesbians might be attracted to those women offends you, it’s because you don’t think trans women are real women.”

“I’m trying to show that preferences for women with vaginas over women with penises might be partially informed by the influence of a cissexist society,” Dennis explains.

I am now convinced that CIS stands for “Cognizant – Intelligent – Sensible.”

In the Transgendered Community, it’s apparently ‘Achievement Unlocked’ if you can get someone fired for not using your preferred pronoun.

I learned it’s illegal in my state to refuse to use someone’s preferred pronoun. Almost every presenter had a story of a time they got a coworker, employee, or boss fired. A speaker (pronouns xe, xyr, xemself) passionately told us of a time when xe had an older coworker who referred to xem as “ma’am.” When xe repeatedly told him xe preferred to be referred to as xem, he responded that he couldn’t, because he had been brought up to be polite and use sir and ma’am.

A quick visit to the supervisor resulted in the coworker being fired. There was standing ovation in the conference hall, with one member of the audience saying how “brave” xe was to enact change. Xe publicly responded that xe “needed to go above his head to get what I needed.”

The left has succeeded in creating a system that punishes people for refusing to deny reality.

George Orwell said, “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.” I bet he never imagined the boot would be pink with sequins and high heels. 

There’s a nutty “scientist” out there who claims that Earth is a prison planet for aliens. If he had gone with ‘Asylum,’ I might be inclined to agree.

Letting Kids Be Kids

Posted by V the K at 7:56 am - March 14, 2017.
Filed under: Transgender Issues

What do you think happens when parents don’t turn their kids into props to support a political agenda; don’t use them as symbols of virtue-signaling their support for the latest trendy group of deviants claiming oppression; don’t parade them out in hopes that Ellen DeGeneres, Katie Couric, or their local afternoon-TV equivalents will put them on TV; don’t haul them to therapists who’ve consumed the latest ‘peer review’ literature and determined that every little boy who picks up a Barbie doll is ‘transgender’; and don’t flood their bodies with dangerous levels of hormones and toxic chemicals to subvert their young bodies’ natural processes.

Most of the time, they turn into healthy, well-adjusted adults. (i.e. The villains in the social left’s Passion Play.)

I wanted to be a boy. Desperately wanted to be a boy. I thought boys had more fun. I felt like a boy in the way that our society views genders. I liked blue and green more than pink and purple. I remember sitting up as high as I could climb in our huge mulberry tree, bow & arrow in hand, trying to kiss my elbow (a neighbor lady had told me that if I could accomplish this, that I would turn into a boy, which was what I wanted in that moment, as a child, more than anything.)[…]

In this day and age, I probably could have been labled as transgender. They would cut my hair off short (because, all boys have short hair, right?) I would be given “boy” clothes to wear, blue walls in my room rather than pink, and be told to pretend to have a penis, at least until I could have one surgically added. Had this happened, I can not even imagine how traumatic puberty would have been for me.

Fast forward to age 14/15 (late bloomer here) and I finally started going through puberty. I had never really thought of the opposite sex in a sexual manner before. My attraction was immediately, and is to this day, towards men. At the risk of going all Shania on you, I “feel” like a woman. Had my parents decided, at age 5, that I was a boy, I can not imagine the confusion that I would have experienced during my teen years.

Oh, I think I can.

Has anyone noticed that in the Left’s Push to transgenderize everything, they actually end up emphasizing and highlighting stereotypical gender roles? “Oh, little Emma likes to play with trucks. Emma must a be a transgender boy. Little Chad wants to grow his hair long and wear pink; xe must be a Transgender girl.” It’s kind of like how, by insisting that the phrase “Islamic Terrorism” offends all Mohammedans, they are almost tacitly making the case that all Mohammedans support terrorism.

Shapiro My Hero

Ben Shapiro lays some harsh truth on a precious little snowflake.

Shapiro — after arguing with a young woman about how “gender is not disconnected from sex” — decided to pick a comparable category to prove his point.

“Let me ask you this. I won’t ask you how old – I will ask you how old you are, because you’re young enough that it’s probably not insulting to ask you,” he posed to the young woman, who responded, “I’m 22, so I’m probably a little bit naive, right?”

“No,” he continued. “Why aren’t you 60? Why aren’t you 60? Why can’t you identify as 60? What is the problem with you identifying as 60?”

“It’s not the same as gender,” the young woman countered. “You can’t just…”

“You’re right!” Shapiro shot back. “You can’t magically change your gender. You can’t magically change your sex. You can’t magically change your age.”

Technically there are three — masculine, feminine, and neuter — in languages that have gendered nouns like French, Spanish, and German. (At least until Throbert shows up and corrects me.) There are two biological sexes — male and female. Everything else is delusional.

In related news, the president of the West Virginia University “Gender Equality Movement” went nanners and assaulted conservative students.

During the course of the 42-second video, Denham is able to get out at least twelve f-bombs, and seems to commit at least three physical assaults.

The trans-women don’t like the cis-women and the cis-women don’t like the trans-women. Pass the popcorn.

Transgender activists are upset that the womens march over the weekend was not inclusive to biological men who identify as women, as the protest presented an oppressive message that having a vagina is essential to womanhood.

Saturday’s event to oppose the inauguration of Donald Trump was largely a white cis women march, with too many pictures of female reproductive organs and pink hats, according to trans women and nonbinary individuals

The womens march had an over-reliance on slogans and posters depicting gender norms, like using pink to represent women and girls, said some transgender activists who boycotted the march.

Sorry, trannies, but until you can have abortions, the feminist movement isn’t that interested in you.

Boy Scouts Discover the Left Can Never Be Appeased

Posted by V the K at 11:17 am - December 30, 2016.
Filed under: Transgender Issues

The Boy Scouts of America caved to the pressure of people who hate them and everything they stand for and decided to admit overtly gay people into their ranks. If they thought this would make the people who hate them and everything they stand for leave them alone… they were badly mistaken.

Kristie Maldonado said she was stunned because her son had been a member of Cub Scout Pack 87 in Secaucus for about a month and his transgender status had not been a secret. But some parents complained, an official from the Northern New Jersey Council of Boy Scouts told her — even though her son had been living as a boy for more than a year and was accepted as a boy at school, she said

“Not one of the kids said, ‘You don’t belong here,’” Maldonado said of the Scouts in the pack.

“It made me mad,” Joe, said. “I had a sad face, but I wasn’t crying. I’m way more angry than sad. My identity is a boy. If I was them, I would let every person in the world go in. It’s right to do.”

Gee, I wonder who coached that particular line to come out of the mouth of an eight-year-old.

So, here we have… most likely a publicity-hound white mother jumping on the trendy transgender bandwagon … claiming that her little girl “identifies as a boy and therefore is a boy” (because leftists are insane like that), and normal, mentally healthy people who just want to be left alone to live their lives in peace have to put up with this bullsh. Because “You will be made to care.”

I just see stuff like this and give Thanks to Almighty God that I was born normal and not progressive-left.

As I see it, I really don’t care about anyone else’s business as long as they keep it their business. But when activists try to make their dysfunction something I’m supposed to accommodate or celebrate, that opens up my right to say, “No, dude. You’re effed up, and I don’t want any part of it.”

Activists Are Horrid People

This is what happens when you ally yourself to the Social Left.

The students hurled a litany of insults at [Boys Don’t Cry director Kimberly] Peirce, putting up posters that read “fuck your transphobia” and “you don’t fucking get it” among other things. Worse, when Peirce ascended to her podium, students had placed a sign there. It read “fuck this cis white bitch.” That Peirce is actually gender-fluid is quite beside the point.

The students’ unbelievable rudeness crossed the line into a kind of censorship when Peirce tried to speak: the students simply shouted over her. Eventually they let her talk, but some students continued to yell things like “fuck your respectability politics” and “fuck you scared bitch.”

You’re probably [] wondering why the social justice left hates Peirce so much. Well, the film was ahead of its time in 1999, but in 2016 it’s problematic. That’s because the main character, Brandon, was played by Hilary Swank, a non-trans person. Students were also incensed at the idea of Peirce having profited from violence against trans people, which isn’t a remotely accurate way to characterize things, but there it is.

You may think that  lashing out with obscenities at someone who shares your viewpoint is pretty deranged. Yes, it totally is. Good for you, picking up on that.

“Cis” is a made-up prefix meaning, “normal and mentally healthy,” is considered an epithet on the Social Left.

Ponder that.

Transgender Showboating Destroys a Good School

Posted by V the K at 4:27 pm - November 21, 2016.
Filed under: Transgender Issues

Nova Classical Academy is a charter school in St. Paul Minnesota that emphasizes classical studies and academic rigor. It was renowned for the quality of its academic programs, and well-regarded by parents and students alike.

Then, two parents moved in; the husband a doctoral a PhD candidate in educational psychology at the University of Minnesota, where his research focuses on “the creation and implementation of gender inclusive policies and practices in K–12 public schools.” And… by amazing coincidence… the daddy who intends to make a career in the expanding field of Transgender Diversity… had a transgender five-year-old sondaughter. (And the mother knew their child was transgender because, despite being biologically male, he enjoys dancing and lip-synching to Beyoncé. Absolute proof-positive of transgenderism among five-year olds).

The school was eager to accommodate them, and they were eager to be accommodated.

In January 2016, Nova’s board of directors approved a comprehensive, interim “gender inclusion” policy. The policy later became permanent. Under the new policy, a student can choose his or her own gender without medical approval. The school must work with transgender students to “create a tailored gender transition plan.” Students are entitled to use the bathrooms, locker rooms, and overnight-trip sleeping facilities of the opposite sex. They also have a right to demand that others address them using their “preferred name” and pronouns. After the policy’s adoption, a committee recommended converting some school bathrooms to “gender neutral” status, while retaining others as “gender binary . . . (traditionally known as Boys/Girls bathroom).”

However, in the opinion of the “transgender” five-year-old parents, they were not quite accommodated enough, and so lawyers and the media got involved. The parents got to bask in the glow of media and social approval, while those who questioned whether changing the curriculum and culture of a school to accommodate a single (dubiously) transgender five-year-old was a good idea were attacked as deplorables.

And at the end of it… another progressive left success story.

Before October 14, 2015, the school was a thriving educational institution where families of widely differing beliefs coexisted happily in a common enterprise. Now bitterness and distrust are rampant. Friendships have been destroyed, and a significant number of families have left the school, which lost ninety-four students from last year to this year.

Like I said, a progressive success story.

Read the whole thing.

Transgender Brainwashing Is Child Abuse

So this mom tried to jump on the trendy transgendered band-wagon, claiming her little boy identified as a girl. You get a lot of high-fives and social kudos in left-wing social circles for this.

Then, the court put the little boy back in dad’s custody. You won’t believe what happened next. (See, I can be a master clickbaiter) 

A seven-year-old boy has been removed from his mother’s care by the high court, after he was found to be suffering “significant emotional harm” due to his mother raising him as a girl.

The judge in the case slammed social services who had simply accepted that the boy should be treated as a girl.

The woman had told him that the boy “expressed disdain for his penis”, he said, adding: “I consider that [the mother] has caused significant emotional harm to [her son] in her active determination that he should be a girl.”

“I have been told that [the father] and his partner were shocked when they first saw [the boy] by the extent to which he appeared to be a girl, both in appearance and in mannerism,” said the judge. “However, what is striking is how well [the boy] has settled down.

“I have noted from reports that [the boy] has become interested in Power Rangers, SpongeBob, superheroes and is constantly finding new interests … It is striking that most of [the boy’s] interests are male-oriented.

You gotta feel sorry for kids who become just tokens of their parents desire to embrace social justice culture. I keep thinking of that poor little boy raised by the two man-hating lesbian couple* who, surprise surprise, despises himself and also identifies as transgendered because it’s probably the only way to get his parents to accept him. He’s due for quite a shock later on when he finds out how many lesbians hate trannies. Poor kid.

Hat Tip Craig

*PS. Strange, when I did the search “lesbian couple son transgender” on Google to find that story, all the links that came up were on the order “How to Raise your transgender child” and “Transgender Teens face bullying at school.” I switched to Bing, did the same search, and it went right to the story.
