A Wyoming man who identifies as a transgender woman is on trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in a bathroom.

The trial for Miguel Martinez, who goes by the name Michelle, began on Monday, the Billings Gazette reported. Martinez allegedly invited the young girl into the bathroom with him where he allegedly fondled the girl’s breasts and genitalia, before penetrating her.

Progressive Academics Against Science

A researcher has been barred form studying the after-effects of sex-reaasignment surgery, because the university was afraid the results of the study might contradict the Settled Narrative on transgenderism.

A researcher has been refused permission to study cases of people who have surgery to reverse gender reassignment by a university that said it risked generating controversy on social media sites.

The proposal was rejected with an explanation noting that it was a potentially “politically incorrect” piece of research and could lead to material being posted online that “may be detrimental to the reputation of the institution”.

Because it would be just awful for the Settled Narrative if it were discovered there were detrimental effects to treating gender dysphoria through chemical and surgical mutilation.

In other news of the confused, Chelsea Manning has been barred from entering Canada because of xer multiple convictions for treasonish offenses, or as they say in America’s hat, offences. I’m sure Justin Trudeau’s hair will grant xer an exerption.

This Is Not the Way We Have Been Told It Was Supposed to Work

A twelve year old boy in Australia told his parents he was “transgendered” and wanted to be a girl. So, doing what enlightened progressive parents are supposed to do, they started him on hormone therapy to begin chemically mutilating his body into a crude facsimile of the opposite sex. What happened next was not supposed to happen.

An Australian schoolboy who decided to transition into a female has changed his mind two years later.

At just 12-years-old, Patrick Mitchell, begged with his mother to begin taking oestrogen hormones after doctors diagnosed him with gender dysphoria — a condition where a person experiences distress because there is a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity.

After heeding advice from professionals who suggested that it was right choice, his mother was fully supportive and Mitchell began to transition.

He grew out his hair and started to take the hormones, which caused his body to grow breasts. But two years on, Mitchell had a change of heart.

In the beginning of 2017, teachers at school began to refer to him as a girl which triggered Mitchell to question if he had made the right decision.

“I began to realise I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” he told Now To Love.

Maybe the caring adults in this kid’s life should have sought out mental health resources to help learn to love and accept his physical body. Gender dysphoria is, after all, a condition of the mind, not the body.

Especially among children, whom adults don’t trust to make any serious life choices unless there is a sexual proclivity attached to them. Adults don’t trust children to take an Ibuprofen tablet when they have a headache; but they are allowed unrestricted access to abortions and body altering hormones.

Transgenderism, uniquely among identity disorders, is treated by indulging the delusions of the person that their body is something other than it really is. We don’t treat people who feel they should be disabled by disabling them. We don’t treat anorexic people by helping them starve. We don’t treat people who think they’re Joan of Arc by burning them at the stake.

I think the  reason… the reason no one will admit to… is because unlike those other disorders, transgenderism is considered sexy and kinky. I have no proof, it’s just a feeling. Progressives identify with transsexuals because it seems like a kinky fetish. They’re into that.

And there are real world consequences to treating transgender dysmorphia like a disorder of the body instead of the mind. Suicide rates among post-operative transgendered people attest to this. But the point is, progressive societies are less concerned with helping people with body identity disorders than they are about feeling good about their feelings… and getting turned on.

Death by Misplaced Compassion

A British transgender teen killed herself, supposedly because the school wouldn’t let her change her name.

A transgender teenager who killed himself “was angry with [his] school” after it refused to grant him permission to officially change his name, an inquest into his death has heard.
Leo Etherington had come out at home and at school – but teachers at Wycombe high school, an all-girls grammar school, told the 15-year-old that he could not change his name on the register for another year.
Giving evidence at an inquest into his son’s death, Martin Etherington said: “The school told him he had to be 16 to change his name. He said he was angry with the school.

I’m sorry, but if the kid offed herself over that… for that matter… couldn’t wait a few months … I don’t think you can call this a case of “bigotry-caused suicide.” That is, apparently, what you are supposed to think it is.

I wonder if the adults in this teenager’s life recognized the profound psychological problems she was obviously struggling with? Were they afraid to confront her for fear of being called bigots or H8Rs? Perhaps, losing their jobs and being publicly stigmatized for their ‘Hate Crime?” Or, were they merely blinded by the glow of their own virtue signaling as they praised Louise for her ‘courage’ and added ‘Transgender Teen’ to their collection of human Pokémon?

The politically correct belief is that the way to treat gender dysphoria is by indulging the sufferer’s delusion that they should be the opposite sex; that surgical and chemical mutilation of their body into a crude facsimile of the other sex will reconcile mind and body and resolve the disorder. What if this thinking is wrong? What if gender dysphoria is just a symptom or manifestation of more profound psychological issues that a sex-change merely papers over?

Land of Confusion

The mister and I were in Home Depot the other day looking at light fixtures, and an HD employee came up and did the old, “Can I help you find something?”

Said employee had long lustrous hair, a build like a high school middle linebacker, tiny boobs and a deep voice. We both thought (as we discussed in the car later) “Tranny,” but what-to-what we weren’t quite sure. So, what pronoun were we to use, should it come up? Fortunately it didn’t come up.

But I also wonder what if this person wasn’t even a Transgenderina? What if it was just a woman who had been genetically sideswiped? Or what if she was like someone I knew in college who, although female and straight, had a deep voice and a masculine build as a result of steroid treatments she had been given in puberty to fight cancer. If so, would she be offended if I assumed she was a Transgenderina?

This California “Use the Wrong Pronoun, Go to Prison” thing is a minefield. How is anyone supposed to read someone else’s mind and know how to offend them; when even asking them could potentially offend them.

A California school decided to celebrate when one its students “bravely” decided to go transgender. In fact, the teachers and administrators arranged a class party, where the dressed as a little girl, and teachers explained that all of his classmates had to indulge his transgender cosplay and treat “her” as a girl from then on.

It was a kindergarten class.

It. Was. A. Kindergarten. Class.
No one notified parents. And apparently some of the little rugrats came home terrified that their own sexes can suddenly change without notice.

The teacher defended her decision to read two children’s books about transgenderism including one titled “I am Jazz.” She says the books were given to her by a transgender child going through a transition.

“The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl,” said England.

Parents say besides the books, the transgender student at some point during class also changed clothes and was revealed as her true gender.

All this to satisfy the egos of some virtue-signaling progressive dimwit adults.

Friday night odds and ends

It amazes me how many legit stories I have to skip over each day, for brevity or lack of time. As I made the following list, I skipped over many other worthwhile items.

  • 53 House Democrats told Defense Secretary Mattis to not comply with the transgender ban.

    “We write to not only express our strong opposition to President Trump’s recent tweets seeking to ban transgender individuals from the military, but to remind you not to comply with any unconstitutional directive which may ultimately be issued,” according to the letter, which was signed by Armed Services ranking member Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., and Judiciary ranking member Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich.

  • Attorney General Sessions is finally going to look into all those leaks.

    Session said criminals who have leaked classified information are “being investigated and will be prosecuted.” He added that four people have already been charged with leaking classified material and related counts, and investigations have tripled.

    Sessions said he has directed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and new FBI Director Christopher Wray to oversee all classified leak investigations and actively monitor the progress.

    He said a new counterintelligence unit has been created to manage cases, and he has directed the National Security Division and U.S. attorneys to prioritize cases involving unauthorized disclosures.

    There’s some brouhaha over more aggressive subpoenas on reporters, but they’re still mainly going after the actual leakers. Which is right.

  • AG Sessions is finally going to look at Obama’s government slush fund for left-wing groups.

    …[The DOJ’s] “cy pres” payments were a long-standing policy of having mostly corporate defendants, for example in a civil rights suit, agree to pay into charities as part of their settlement with the government to avoid further prosecution.

    In recent years, especially during the Obama administration, the practice increasingly funneled funds to left-wing “community organizing” groups…

    …Sessions…put a stop to the payments unilaterally in June…The new memo, dated July 28, goes further, commanding DOJ attorneys to look back into the history of these settlements and report back every payment that would not meet the new standards laid down in June.

  • The rumors of NSA McMaster having a ‘purge list’ have made it into the White House staff, rattling them.
  • Alex Jones and Mike Cernovich got wild today with talk of the Deep State planning to outright-assassinate Trump, which could seem like irresponsible speculation, until you see stories like this one: Maxine Waters says ‘When We Finish With Trump, We Have to Go and Get’ Pence.

    A coup isn’t being planned, could never happen here, that’s ridiculous, don’t spread horrible rumors you liars…..Folks, should we go with that idea? Or: leading Democrats are telling the military to disobey President Trump (see first item, above) and already looking forward to phase 2 of the coup, ‘Get Pence’? Which is it?

I hope to do a post later on the week’s Awan Scandal news.

This is one perspective, and I know of no reason it should be considered illegitimate. I tend to agree that the reason for forcing the military to accept transgendered people is an emotional one. “It’s not fair!” is the tantrum-cry of a spoiled child, not a reason-based argument. To me, the question is whether the military will be better at its primary mission if transgendered people are in it. That should be the only question in consideration of what the rules ought to be.

At the link, Caitlyn Jenner defends President Trump and expresses a belief in limited government and making the U.S. a better place to do business.

Of course I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I’m glad to see Jenner saying sensible political things to a left-leaning audience. On the other hand, I know that Jenner has willingly served as either a source, or at least a mascot, for some of the rather foolish Transgender Fever that has swept America in the last year or two.

As to transgenders in general: I’m glad when they stand up for their legitimate rights as any human should – for example, practicing self-defense skills with Pink Pistols – and, I’m not glad when adult biological men think they have a right to impose their brand of political correctness on others, take over girls’ bathrooms, etc.

Overall, file this one under “People Are Complex”.

99 Problems But a Glitch in My Sexual Identity Ain’t One

Pity the lesbian whose partner decided to jump on the trendier Transgender train.

What does an almost forty-year-old, out and proud lesbian do when her partner comes out as a transgender male? I don’t really know. I can only tell you what this lesbian chose to do: I chose to stay. I chose to stay because, when I really got honest, if Simon was a boy, he’d always been a boy, whether I’d acknowledged it or not.

I chose to stay because Simon is brave, kind, honest and loving ways in ways that Amy could never quite muster up the openness, the transparency, to be. I chose to stay to honor the family that we created together. I chose to stay because I can’t imagine my life without him.

When I begin to overanalyze what staying with Simon means for my lesbian identity, I get a little panicked. Losing the lesbian label feels a bit like losing part of myself.

Hey, you got attention out of it, and accolades for being “so brave.” Count it as a win.

Sane People Not Welcome

Rush Limbaugh did a piece this week on how the impetus of the Democrat Left is to force society to accept dysfunction as normal. He has a point.

A transgender activist (oh, boy, you see those two words together and you know you’re about to hit high Octane crazy)  named Zinnia Jones went on a Twitter tear attacking straight men who don’t want to date chicks with dicks.

“I don’t see a problem with telling straight guys who are exclusionary of trans women partners that they should try to work through that.

Being exclusionary of trans women partners should be an outlier and marginal position for straight men, not some commonplace expectation.

I also don’t believe the blanket claim of ‘straight men don’t want to be with someone who has a dick!’

There’s some baseline rate for that as an actual true preference. But it’s artificially inflated by social stigma and biases.

It’s subject to the effect of *incredible* numbers of straight men who want us but refuse to ever admit to it, and cover it with transphobia.

Do the majority straight men really secretly lust for chicks with dicks, and its only society’s stigma that keeps them from dating “trans women?” Because Zinnia Jones really believes that.

Question for you homos: Would any of you be into dating a “Trans Man?” Do you agree with Zinnia Jones that “All genitals are sort of funny looking. It’s just flesh. You can probably deal with it.”? (Thus reducing all the complexities of sexuality to matters of genital anatomy.)

It this type of pure deranged, completely-out-of-touch with reality, delusional rant that is now the norm on the left. And the 21st Century Democrat Party would rather align itself with Zinnia Jones than with the working class normal people of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, or Ohio (the “bitter clingers, as Barack Obama called them). The Democrat Party has become obsessed with social justice virtue signaling to the exclusion of the practical functions of Government. It’s a fairly easy thesis to demonstrate. Democrat-run Illinois is losing population and jobs, but just initiated a massive tax increase. Democrat-Run California, too, just enacted a massive tax increase and is continuing to pour billions into a railroad project that is neither needed nor wanted by the public, but Party Elites need to signal their virtue with regard to the (increasingly discredited) theory of human-caused global warmening.  Democrats insist that the tax increases are necessary, but the low tax states of Texas and Florida seem to be doing OK. Oh, and New York City’s Democrat mayor skipped out on his mayoral duties in order to join Antifa in protesting Donald Trump at the G-20 because that kind of empty symbolism and common cause with violent hate groups is what the party is all about. Democrat policies seem to be designed particularly to drive normal, reasonable people out of the jurisdictions they control.

Indeed, Democrat strategist Mark Penn wrote an Op-Ed suggesting that the Democrat Party might want to maybe refocus on the economic and practical concerns of the middle and working class, and was promptly slammed for it by the party’s virtue-signaling activist base. (Mostly, middle-aged divorced women, or women that never found a man in the first place and are super bitter about it and the type of beta males drawn to leftist politics.)

Donald Trump made a speech in Poland defending the west’s values of pluralistic democracy and basic human rights. The Democrat Left attacked him as a fascist. And then they pushed a fake news story that the first lady of Poland refused to shake hands with him.

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.

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.
