Are You Now or Have You Ever Been a Believer in Biological Sex? How the left shares the blame for neo-McCarthyism

Bruce Lesnick

In the 1940s and 50s, advocating Karl Marx’s critique of capitalism could get you fired from your job, blacklisted, deplatformed and even imprisoned. Though communists and socialists were instrumental in the struggles of the 1930s and 40s that built the industrial labor movement in the U.S., by the late 1940s those radical ideas were vilified and virtually outlawed.

Communism was purposely conflated with the crimes of Stalin. Communists and socialists were driven out of the unions. A layer of union bureaucrats that supported the witch-hunt was promoted. For fear of reprisals, many radicals kept quiet and self-censored. Some “recanted” socialist beliefs. Some fingered others to save themselves.

The poison unleashed by that witch-hunt dealt a body blow to the labor movement and its devastating effects are felt to this day. It’s no coincidence that the U.S. is the only major capitalist country with no independent labor party, no universal healthcare, no federally mandated vacation and no parental leave.

After a time, the leader of the anti-communist witch-hunt, Joseph McCarthy, was discredited and the formal apparatus for pursuing the campaign was dismantled. But the damage had already been done.

Moreover, McCarthyism was so effective in house-breaking the labor movement that the tool would never be permanently abandoned by the powers that be. It was merely set aside, to be resurrected again once the need arose and memory of its corrosive cost faded.

Two key features of McCarthyism are thought control and guilt-by-association. Certain ideas are ruled out of bounds. Anyone who defends the censored ideas or questions the censorship regime itself is harshly dealt with.

Anyone defending or associating with someone accused of running afoul of the thought police is dealt with just has harshly. The net result is generalized fear, self-censorship and compliance.

Fast forward to 2016. The Democratic Party manipulated its own presidential primary process to ensure that neoliberal warmonger and Wall Street servant Hillary Clinton ran against odious billionaire Donald Trump. And the Democrats lost!

Rather than engage in any self-examination to determine why a career Democratic politician lost to a Republican gameshow host, the Democrats concocted the Russiagate conspiracy.

Trump, we were told, colluded with Russia to steal the election. The evidence for this was razor-thin, but anyone who questions the narrative is smeared as a Russian agent or Putin apologist. Anyone associated with or speaking in defense of someone smeared as a Russian collaborator is denounced and attacked as well. A new McCarthyism blossomed.

Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s multi-year investigation into the affair concluded that “…the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government…” But the smears, evidence-free charges and witch-hunt associated with Russiagate persist to this day. Many on the liberal “left” – from Democracy Now! to the New York Times – bought into and continue to promote this baseless conspiracy.

Meanwhile, another McCarthyite witch-hunt has spread like wildfire. This one proclaims that people can be born into the “wrong” body and denounces anyone who questions this belief as a reactionary bigot. Sadly, in this case, the socialist, as well as the liberal left, has jumped onto the McCarthyite bandwagon.

Trans identified males are biological males who think of themselves as females. Trans identified females are biological females who think of themselves as males. No democratic-minded person questions the right of everyone, including transgender individuals, to their own beliefs, behaviors and lifestyle preferences, free from bigotry or discrimination.

But extreme transgender ideology goes a step further.

It demands not only support for the civil rights of trans people but insists that everyone must also embrace the beliefs of trans extremists.

Not only is the imposition of the belief of one group a violation of the democratic rights of others, this particular belief has negative implications for the rights of women, gays, lesbians and children:

To question extreme trans ideology today is to be denounced, de-platformed, fired, face death threats and physical attack. As with all McCarthyite campaigns, thoughts which question the orthodoxy are ruled out of order. Anyone raising censored thoughts is persecuted and isolated.

In this way, facts and material reality are jettisoned. In this manner, those promoting extreme transgender ideology avoid having to make their case; they simply rule any contrary facts and opinions out of bounds. So, the following facts are deemed heretical, bigoted and in need of suppression:

  1. Sex and gender are not synonyms.
  2. Biological sex is objective and real, while gender is a subjective social construct.
  3. There is no such thing as a distinctly male or female brain.
  4. There are only two sexes because there are only two gametes. One sex (male) is optimized to produce small, mobile gametes. The other sex (female) is optimized to produce large, immobile gametes.
  5. 99.98% of all humans are unambiguously identifiable as male or female at birth.
  6. One can change their appearance, but no one can chemically or surgically change their biological sex.
  7. A tiny percentage of people are born with Disorders of Sexual Development (DSDs, or Intersex conditions.) The vast majority of intersex people are not transgender, and the vast majority of transgender people are not intersex.
  8. Homosexuality and transgenderism are not analogous. Homosexuality is a sexual orientation, but extreme trans ideology is based on the denial of biological sex.
  9. There are as many gender expressions as there are human individuals.
  10. Transwomen (i.e. trans identified males) are not literally female.
  11. Transmen (i.e., trans identified females) are not literally male.
  12. Transgender extremists do not speak for all trans people.

According to the largest socialist groups in the US – Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), Socialist Alternative and the International Socialist Organization (ISO before it imploded) – accepting or even debating the above assertions cannot be allowed because that would somehow “deny the existence” of trans people.

The same holds for the British Labor Party (which currently has a trans-identified male as its Constituency Women’s Officer) and for many smaller socialist groups in the US and around the world.

Of course, those on the liberal “left,” like Democracy Now!, the ACLU, the Democratic Party and others, march in lockstep with extreme trans ideology and vigorously pile on anyone who might suggest that the emperor has no clothes.

A perfect example is provided by the February 1, 2020 meeting held at the Seattle Public Library entitled Fighting the New Misogyny: A Feminist Critique of Gender Identity which explored many of the above points.

The event was protested by trans activists who slanderously claimed the gathering was a “fundraising event for transphobic hate speakers,” and that “These speakers include professional anti-trans hate writer Meghan Murphy, and a WoLF [Women’s Liberation Front] board member.”

They continued:

We, as a city, must rally against this event to tell transphobic hate groups that they are not welcome here, that transphobia has no place in feminism, and that Seattle Public Library must make major changes to make our libraries safe for trans employees and patrons.

These same activists tried unsuccessfully to have the Library ban the event outright. If they had their way, the important ideas outlined above would be forever censored.

Unfortunately, among those opposing the meeting and siding with the McCarthyites was Socialist Alternative City Councilperson Kshama Sawant, whose office sent representatives to the anti-meeting protest.

Marxism, the philosophical underpinning for the socialist left, relies heavily on historical materialism. That is, the idea that there are tangible, physical reasons for what we observe in the development and interaction of societies and classes of people within those societies.

This makes it all the more astonishing when some socialists so thoroughly reject biology and material reality in their analysis of transgender ideology and its effect on other oppressed groups.

The left’s abdication on this issue – especially the misdirection of the socialist left – is a gift to the right, as it allows those on the right to pose as the sane ones. The socialist left bears particular responsibility because it presents itself as a collection of thoughtful, considered leaders.

All the more tragic, then, is the fact that this new McCarthyism, which disingenuously wraps itself in the mantle of “woke” leftism, could never have taken hold if the real left had spoken out clearly and forcefully from the start.

At this point, it remains to be seen whether the left will correct its error or be bypassed by the multitudes who will surely punish those who tried to gaslight them into rejecting material reality.

Great post Bruce – spot on, except for a small detail…

“The same holds for the British Labor Party (which currently has a trans-identified male as its Constituency Women’s Officer)”

There are 600+ constituencies (CLPs) and I think currently there is no TIM Women’s Officer. Women’s Officers are party members elected by members of each CLP – voluntary role.

The Party itself does not have anyone currently in a paid job to promote women’s role in the party. Just when it’s REALLY needed.

Meanwhile the Party has pretyy much lost its marbles…

Almost all the candidates for Leader and Deputy leader of the party have signed up to the ‘Labour Campaign for Trans Rights’ Pledges, which include

“9. Organise and fight against transphobic organisations such as Woman’s Place UK, LGB Alliance and other trans-exclusionist hate groups. (they’re not transphobic)

10. Support the expulsion from the Labour Party of those who express bigoted, transphobic views.
(that means anyone who defends sex-based rights)”

But the issues are getting into the mainstream media a bit more recently. It’s been a long battle.

It’s not a local problem to the USA and it’s even worse than described. Nobody is allowed even to choose (with certainty) a husband or a wife based on biological sex rather than so-called “gender” in the UK. The Gender Recognition Act makes it impossible to check the birth sex of a legally transitioned fiance or fiancee before entering into a marriage. This applies to those who would choose to marry a member of the opposite sex.

I know this, because I took the British government to court to try to stop this as long ago as 2005.

Stop gender fraud!

Thanks for this article about the obvious bullying, silencing and hateful tactics used against people (mostly women) who dare to speak out against transgenderism. Have you heard of my case in Madison? It is relevant because I was a prominent leftist organizer and activist plus a singer/songwriter until trans activists took me out of the scene, and recently, one of them even incited violence against me at a local anti-war coalition meeting.

Some ideas are so absurd that the only rational response is mockery. So:

Come let us mock at the faux left
That had such oppressions on the mind
And toiled so hard and late
To create their totalitarianism
No thought of blowback.
Come let us mock the all-knowing
Who prove by logical fallacies
They are right and good and moral
And everyone else must be:
Silenced.

So, only when the madness spins completely out of control, do (some!) in the Establishment Left finally say, “Enough is enough!”

My craw got stuck on…

First, the idea that there are “facts”, and they are always knowable and settled, and that the credentialed, or merely the self-selected blowhards, possess them. Or at least that one is not conscious of major problems with those pretensions.

Then:

2. Biological sex is objective and real, while gender is a subjective social construct.
3. There is no such thing as a distinctly male or female brain.

In other words — while clearly recognizing (physically obvious) biological sex, and seeing the madness of some of the “woke” — Lesnick still refuses to acknowledge that mind characteristics can have origins in the brain (and the rest of the body). For him, the jury has come back, the case is closed, and the science is settled. Out of sight, out of mind.

Maybe he needs to review the turbulence in psychiatry over the last half-century… Or, the simple fact that, for millenia, we have known that ingestion of substances (alchohol, drugs) causes changes in mental states; moreover, changes that no amount of self-discipline can undo.

This failure to acknowledge that there are, at least practically speaking, immutable mind characteristics (of all kinds) is at the heart of a lot of the Establishment Left’s out-of-control psychological manipulation.

The claim that male and female minds are different is central to the claims made by Trans Rights Activists, they claim that transwomen (for example) have female brains (or soles or essence or whatever, they’re not always clear about which) trapped in a male body. This is exactly why TRAs represent a deeply conservative and reactionary strand of thought and exactly why leftists like myself oppose them as reactionaries.

There is no solid evidence of there being any meaningful difference whatsoever between female and male brains. Traditionally it was said that male brains are larger, heavier and contain more grey matter, while women’s brains are smaller and contain more white (interconnective) matter, but these differences can be explained simply by body size, larger bodies require larger brains, tall women also have larger brains, smaller men have more white matter, meanwhile no difference has ever been found in performance like between male and female IQ levels. Gina Rippon is a leading neuroscientist writting on male and female differences in the brain.

Traditional socially conservative essentialism is no different from transgender ideology in that they both consider males/men and females/women to be psychologically different from conception, this is why very conservative countries like Iran facilitate state funding for transgender surgery, Iran performs the most transition surgeries after Thailand.

Gender Critical leftists like myself consider gender to be a social construct, but bodies are not, therefore from a gender critical perspective nobody can ever be born in the “wrong body” and if you happen to have been born with a male body but like playing with dolls, dressing up and flower arranging and don’t like football, then you should be free to do what you like without harrasment, but it simply does not make you a woman. Gender is bullshit, a set of signs and associations we learn and perform and which we should be free to use as each individual sees fit, but bodies are real and we shouldn’t mess with healthy flesh to make it conform to our ideas.

If everybody’s brain is the same then how do you explain differences in sexual preference, gay vs heterosexual? Are you saying that is also just a social construct?

Carnyx
Carnyx

There is no physical difference between gay and heterosexual brains, sexual orientation is brought about by a complex interaction of biology, psychological development and socialisation. There maybe some genetic or chromosomal factors that increase the likelyhood someone will be gay, but the pressence of these factors do not by themselves absolutely determine if someone is homosexual.

Gay men are not women in male bodies, lesbians aren’t men in female bodies. People with similiar brains can develop all sorts of different tastes, abilities or fetishes and orientations as a result of their individual development combined with socialisation.

george

You mention biology and genetic or chromosomal factors. That would indicate there are differences in the brain. (It has to be in the brain, where else?)

If not that would indicate it would be possible to “cure” somebody who is gay into heterosexual (or the other way around). It seems clear however that this is impossible, you can’t turn a gay person into heterosexual or the other way around, again indicating there are differences that go beyond “psychological development and socialization”.

People are born gay or hetero, isn’t this clear? You seem to suggest this is not true.
(I will agree that it’s a spectrum, and some people are in the middle of this spectrum, but for the very vast majority they are very clearly on one side or the other.)

Carnyx
Carnyx

Saying homosexuality is subject to psychology and socialisation doesn’t imply it’s possible to convert. The interactions of biology, psychology and socialisation are so complex and random it would not be possible to create or convert a homosexual. People make all sorts of personal associations as they grow and develop, you couldn’t for example create or convert even a shoe fetishist either, and fetishism is of a lower order of associations than orientations like homosexuality.

A shoe fetishist has at some point associated shoes with the object of desire and sexual excitement, but bringing up a child in a shoe shop won’t nessiserily give them such a fetish, they may equally find shoes utterly boring because they never made the same association at the same stage of development. Likewise you cannot cure a shoe fetishist once someone has become one, fetishes are a source of pleasure and satisfaction so why would anyone give that up?

There is also a problem with the terminology of “homosexuality” because it inherantly implies an exclusive identity that has not always existed, homoeroticism has always existed but homoeroticism is wider than homosexuality, there are people who can be aroused by homoerotic elements who aren’t homosexual, strongly heterosexual identified men in prison for example or ancient Greeks. Therefore I’d suggest that hetero and homo orientations are not exclusively different types but a bi continuum upon which various factors act to arrive at a preference which once arrived at cannot be changed, the very catagories of hetero and homo then impose an exclusive identity upon that preference, as part of that people start looking for essential differences to justify current catagories. This is quite unlike male and female which have always existed and are based on clear physical differences and abilities.

There is no such thing as ‘the male brain’ as opposed to ‘the female brain’. This is not the same thing as saying that ‘everybody’s brain is the same’. Obviously, all brains are subject to individual differences.

It serves a deconstructing of identity and society by corporately framed state mandate in order to manually effect alignment under systemic global control.
Belief and identity is to be centrally managed.

Identity crisis or conflict, is the attempt to become who we are not in escape from what we hate or fear to be. The split between masking persona and being can be deeply concealed or unconscious, or manifesting as a breakdown of one’s ‘reality’ to a chaos that until complete, operates the attempt to regain ‘control’ via the adjustment of the masking defences.

Identity politics as a manipulative leverage of the fears and wishes of others, uses selected ‘victim identities’ as proxies to polarise and leverage narrative identity, by framing resistance to coercion as ‘hate crime’.
Breaking down traditional and relational structures of some alignment with our being, so as to bring permitted and perhaps demanded identity expression under state control – while the apparatus of government is effectively aligned to corporate agenda such that market share became mindshare – and the capture and control of mind via narrative framing via propaganda and behavioural incentives.

The attempt to Do Life manually is the error.
This is the attempt ‘to be as gods’ rather than extend the God Given.
We not only get in our own way, but interpret the blockage as flagged to anyone whose non support for our way associates with loss of face. And so attack our hate or shadows of self-denial in the ‘othered’ or unpersoned and invalidated – as the way to protect face and the wished power to be as gods against a shadow enemy that seems intent on ripping such power away from us in pain and loss.

What else could arise from a self-conflicting predicate than a whole world of fragmentation and entanglement in which each seeks to regain what was lost – or stolen and denied – from the ‘othered’ world OF denial.

Sex is the nature of the expression of the phenomenal world. Charge separations of energy potentials unfold as self organising pathways of expression, including biological unfoldment within the energetic support of what we (largely) define as dead matter and (until very recently) empty Space or vacuous Nothing.

Sex is functionally procreative and is being moved by the life-desire as a synchrony of two facets coming together to create the context of new life through union. This is not only biological, but a result of two or more joining together in life, as the context through which new life reveals and unfolds to a realm of change – as of the releasing of life’s forms to recognition arising anew.

Loss of wholeness and synchrony is also loss of intimacy and fear of loss of possession and control – and results in reaction of the attempt to regain a past or restore what was lost – as an identity set by such a fixation on the past. And so the seeking of intimacy, power or possession through sex, brought all the psychic conflicts of the ‘separation trauma’ into the realm of sharing life.

Sex is a polarised expression of a higher or inclusive power that is un-manifest – excepting through the ‘two and the many’. The zero-point or balance point is not merely neutral, but is the centre of which all else is an energetic expression of – regardless of polarised and exclusive identification under a past-fixation or mind-set of reaction.

The attempt to DO love substitutes a mind and mask of coercion for the spontaneous expression of recognition, appreciation and gratitude. No matter how ingeniously the mask is repackaged, it sells death under promise of life under false premises.

The term God – and similar terms – have been degraded in usage by being masked in and used for coercive or manipulative vanities of self struggle, but the true of ANY word is written in the heart of recognition – whatever the mind of the mask asserts. The complete lack of coercion and resultant dissonance is the quality of unadulterated being, simply presence as edgeless Communication.

When life moves us directly, there is no Other – and identity of freedom and wholeness extends automatically as recognition of the living where ‘othered’ world seemed before.

It is possible to enact fantasy upon the body and be-live its result – but in giving such function to the world of form as something to GET from, is its primary function of communion and communication lost. The idea that life can unfold its own purpose through our conscious willingness and acceptance, is both receptive and projective, but giving only as we in truth receive. While we ‘receive’ the result of mind-filtering of a past sought after, or a past from which we flee, we are not fully present, but fragmented in recurring dreams of past and future that seem to find proof, support and reinforcement in the behaviours and reactions of the world around us – which we think is as we think it to be.

The right to be who we are is inviolate – because we need do nothing to claim it – but extend our acceptance as our presence in whatever our lives are the unfolding and experiencing of. The attempt to be what we are not is a complex and self-contradictory attempt to put Humpty together again.

Now if All the king’s horses and all the king’s men are consolidated under global controls locally enforced, life will not be allowed to move – and if you paid attention above, life IS movement – or knows Itself as the movement of its own unfolding.

So what happens to energy that is denied expression, contained and compressed?
There is a new world order in the seeding – but not as the mind thinks to get control of.
The state of compression is one of no longer having space or time to tolerate or hold unworkable divergencies of conflicted purpose.

‘Evolution’ is an idea or work in progress, but workability or tensegrity is integral to what is, and the unworkable is that which has no current fitting or place to the expression of the whole in all its parts. But this is not destruction, but release. Our current sense of life is set under power of destruction – even if masked in appeals and rituals of appeasement by sacrifice.

‘Coming out’ as a living one is releasing the identity in the mask to a willingness of sharing recognition with others – as willingness is found. The realm of identity IN and AS the mask is predicated to deny you by design, and taking this personally is taking the personality such denial frames you in as true – instead of abiding in and as the living.

Whatever we may seem to be or think or believe – what we live to each other is our primary communication. Self-inclusion to relational communication is ‘risking’ that there is an underlying basis of common purpose and shared worth. But forced inclusion does violence to the freedom to accept – which MUST be the freedom to say no, desist or dis-associate.

There is no law that says you SHOULD be loving – excepting the hate of the failure or rejection of love to support an illusion of love. The attempt to DO love is its parody in hate. While willingness for love’s awareness will undo the conditions of support for fakery and its implicit hate of life, by withdrawal of support. It is necessary to actively choose to inhibit the expression and propagation of hate, for the movement of life to embrace or willingness for self-inclusion.

Seeking and finding the movement of our being is recognised as primary need. No one can do this for another – but anyone ‘coming out’ is already joined in purpose with all who turn from a judgemental self-specialness, to freedom within a wholeness of being that IS already moving – but the mind seeks a fix from fear of lack. The heart’s desire is the support and alignment of thought. Wishful thinking cannot stand. And the attempt to enforce it will bring the whole house down. (This was where we came in).

How you identify is a personal matter. How you impact others is not. What I find irksome about modern genderisms is that its totally self-centered, all that matters is how the world responds to you and how it makes you feel. If that doesn’t match your expectations then its because everyone’s a transphobe or whatever, they’re actively discriminating and need to be “dealt with”.

Personally, I blame all this on the “There Is No Such Thing As Society” mindset. Although the original quote is much mis-quoted the general sense of what was meant is well understood, it was one of the goals of the neoconservative revolution to fracture society into competing individuals and interest groups, the better to control it.

This will solve itself. Sperm counts are dropping at alarming rates. Soon the entire male population will be sterile. No more need for balls. Let’s chop them off. It’s for the best. So no more males. Everybody transgender. And we can all finally stop bitching about the transgender agenda.

Trans identified males are biological males who think of themselves as females. Trans identified females are biological females who think of themselves as males. No democratic-minded person questions the right of everyone, including transgender individuals, to their own beliefs, behaviors and lifestyle preferences, free from bigotry or discrimination.

Democratic minded person? You perfectly described fascism and promote it.

Your little listicle is deranged, as it does nowhere explain that there is NOBODY that knows what constitutes a ‘human being’. In your obvious hate-rooted piece you aim at the victims of a fascist concerted action to exterminate everything ‘Trans’ – wheras you have no fucking clue what that actually means. Instead you blame the Nazi policies and practices of regimes the world over on the people who have a target painted on them.

It is equally disturbing that you give room for identity politics – without even knowing what ‘identity’ actually means. And that, what you and your fascist fellows consider NON-Beings, are killed, tortured on mutilated based on the condition called ‘Gender Dysphoria’. Known to Humanity SINCE ITS BEGINNINGS, but only now a problem and only for an exclusive group of religious fascists. It is the braindead christians that have a problem with a person that is GOD – as IF god is ‘everything’, than Everything is God. But the christian, jewish, hindu and muslim gods are fascists. Evil spirited fucks that torture and kill millions of people for profits and fun.

The Hawai’ian Culture and mythology does not provide for history, or evidence to the contrary fact that ‘Mahu’ always existed. They come with all other varieties of human conditions. And there lies the real issue. Assholes that have a problem to afford one human condition what it takes to cope with it and another one is punished with fucking discrimination, fucking insults and fucking physical assaults. Why are you not recommending to save tax payers the expense and remove all wheel chair ramps? After all, these people chose to have this human condition.

To make that unmistakebly clear. What you call ‘Trans’ human beings, have been around as long as Homo Sapiens Sapiens (you wish) has been around. It is inseparable part of the being. Do you really fucking think that Bonobos would write pieces of hate about other members because of who they are? They are on a higher evolutionary level than Homo Sapiens Sapiens (you wish), since they have TRANS cended hate, aggression and violence and replaced it with MAKING LOVE.

And here we go on off on off-guardian. A match. But for ANYBODY that has one brain cell left, this piece reveals how the christians, jews and muslims are getting riled up against a part of Homo Sapiens Sapiens that runs counter current to the fucking fairy tales called judaism, christianity and islam. ANd to write about ‘biological’ is the greatest lame joke ever. Number one is, that ‘bio-logical’ is concocted bullshit by people who KNOW that the Earth and everything SURROUNDING it was MADE in SEVEN days.

Because Mother Nature does not grow LOGICAL. LOGOS is not GROWTH. The Universe grows and with it everything it constitutes. Species come and go like diarrhea. And without the understanding about who and what oneself actually constitutes, one can equally not comprehend what the Universe actually is. And NO, without understanding, or desiring to understand that, one remains a primitive species that nobody will remember in a million years.

A solution would have been to say (and I say that, knowing about the REAL American Spirit):

“Okay, can somebody fill me in what that discussion about ‘Trans’ people is about? Is that like in ‘Trans’portation, or ‘Trans’mission? What’s the problem here people are getting all riled up for what?”

“‘Trans’ Humans are Humans that are in a state of ‘Trans’formation based on their Identity.”

“What is Identity?”

“‘Identity’ is what is left when you take everything else away.”

“What is that supposed to mean?”

“It means, that everything you proclaim to know came from an ‘outside’ source. You have always been told ‘how things are’. Or, how they have to be. Therfore, you don’t know WHO you ACTUALLY are – without ‘OTHER’ telling you constantly who you are. You don’t know who you are until you remove everything else. What’s remains – is your Identity. Your Identity could significantly differ from the one you were given. You could say to ignore one’s true Identity is akin to make a Vegetarian participate in a meat eating contest.”

“But what about the bathroom issue? What’s that all about?”

“The majority of people live in a mental straightjacket. Religious people take the point that you can’t change anything after ‘birth’. They argue that, based on their BELIEF, “If god would have wanted for you to be a girl, HE would HAVE MADE YOU a girl.” Those who hide behind ‘science’ and cite BIOLOGICAL as the determining factor for the Identity of a Human Being, are again mistaken in regard to the ‘logical’ part. Religious people see no reason to review their disney tale mythology. Instead, they double down on the discrimination of other Human Beings for not matching their disney mythology. Therefore, they cannot allow for a bathroom that is Unisex. Christians/jews/muslims/hindu need their ‘Boys’ and ‘Girls’ bathrooms, but do not accept that there are Human Beings that do NOT identify with ‘the boys’, or ‘the girls’ either. IF you can’t stand it to go to the bathroom with males, you can’t go anywhere else. If you can’t stand it to go to the bathroom with females, you can’t go anywhere else. And there are always the hypocrites who talk about how dangerous it would be to allow ‘Trans’ in whatever toilet. They would rape, molest and kill others. Just like the soldiers in THEIR name in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.”

“That’s a bit far fetched, isn’t it?”

“Why? Because you can’t see the hypocrisy of a dying species, that is succumbing to greed, hypocrisy, gullibility, indifference and religious delusions? This is just part of it. Religion does not allow for the Truth. It would mean that its intentional deception methods would reveal themselves. It’s like the catholic church being the number one child molester of society. Factually. That’s okay though, because if you get molested by a saint, it’s a blessing anyways. Plus, religious folks are really into the sex thing. They love PORN. So, when a Human Being in transition uses the bathroom of her true Identity, religious people switch to the PORN channel and project their own perversions onto others. They cannot but apply their PORN world to the real world. But the real world is not a porn world.”

“But what about the bathrooms?”

“What about bathrooms? Well, simply spoken, mankind will have to say goodbye to flat Earth and join those Minds for whom this is a NON-ISSUE. Just build Unisex bathrooms. Flat Earthers were also very angry when their convictions were rounded up. But the fact is, that religious people are responsible for the fucked up state of the Earth today. It was never the ‘Transition’ people that were given impoirtant positions to fleece, terrorize, exploit, oppress and abuse Mother Nature. Transition people are also not among the war criminals – since they can’t be in the christo-fascist forces. It is therefore only fair to end the discussion by having Unisex bathrooms everywhere. And by the way, the place where your taxes go to has removes all public bathrooms but a few and everybody else has a sign ‘Bathroom for patrons only’. Once more, the religious people are the easiest to get fucked over. Let’s just build the Unisex bathrooms and the story is settled.”

“Let’s do it. Let’s have everybody have the same bathrooms. That’ll help them to grow up. Because you go to the bathroom to have a dump, or empty your bladder, correct? It’s not like you’re moving in there. Where are yo going?”

“I am going to build some Unisex bathrooms and put them everywhere. A quarter to use. Problem solved.”

The whole ‘Trans’ discussion has only come about, because the HATE of the x-tians towards MtF Humans. FtM Humans are not really a problem, since it’s an upgrade of a female into a male. Like a great mysogynist once stated: “Why would any man want to become a stupid bitch?”

Grow the fuck up, for the sake of all Life on Earth.

Well sure notty – and next week some ad man in an executive office – in league with various intelligence agencies, will come up with yet another buzz word – not “Trans” but maybe “Glans” or “Bioquans” and this too will be discovered to have been part of the very fabric of humanity since the dawn of time. And there will be yet another oportunity to go off on encyclopediac rants for at least another couple of months. Not to mention the lucrative media spin offs.

congratulations, you’ve provided a live example of the delusional insanity and logical incoherence* of transgenderism.

* logical incoherence: in the context of the statement “transwomen are women”, what is the relevant definition of the word “women”? — since it’s claimed that biology has nothing to do with it.

Hate? There was no hate, only a call for reasoned thought and reasoned debate.

I have noticed that when other people have also bravely swam against the liberal – for want of a better word – tide on this matter, they too have been smeared as haters. I was informed that I hate trans women, which was a bit of a surprise to me, for the most anodyne comment calling for a bit of common sense.

I could not give one flying fuck what anyone wishes to do with their life or calls or identifies themself, but please stop insisting that EVERYONE has to agree that a man becomes a woman (or vice versa) because they say they are. They may truly believe that, although I doubt many do. I do not. That does not make me transphobic.

SO.
SO.

XY: Male, XX:Female, (Normally functional) XXY: Male Expression, XXY: Female Expression, (Klinefelter syndrome, developmental abnormalities) XXXX: Female. (Tetra-x, developmental disorders, delayed onset puperty, infertility, neurocognitive disorders) XXYY (XXYY syndrome, possibility of developmental and neurological disorders)… and on and on they go.

Biology does not give a single shit what people call themselves or claim to be.

A fascinating characteristic of our age, which will have… consequences, is the chasm that’s opened between the ruling elites and huge swathes of ordinary people. Put very simply, the elites are loosing their legitimate ‘right’ to rule. In the UK the Guardian mostly looks like a parody of all that’s most ridiculous on the comfortable liberal/left.

The state’s ‘media church’ and the journalist ‘clergy’ have completely lost the plot and the ‘gospel’ they are selling people no longer has real traction. Entertainment still has some tawdry life in it, but really ‘the news’ is dead. The reason the news and journalism are failing, like in the Guardian, is that, increasingly it’s becoming close to impossible to report honestly and tell the truth about what’s going on, because ‘what’s going on’ is so awful and close to criminal. This brutal disconnect with ‘reality’ only makes the chasm between people’s real lives and the political/media narrative, grow wider and deeper, which is becoming increasingly destabilising for society as a whole.

So, we have a fabulously wealthy and isolated ‘aristocracy’ with lifestyles close to those of the French aristocracy prior to the Revolution, and at the same time their storytellers, their ‘media church’ is no longer followed and people don’t believe a word they say.

The people are no longer ‘under control’ and it’s getting worse. No wonder the ‘aristocrats’ are concerned and no wonder the media is clamping down on critics and dissent. Once this was actually encouraged, because it wasn’t really a threat or dangerous to the established order. Now things are different.

The crucial question politically, is, how are the elites going to re-establish their ‘right to rule’ and stop/reverse the ‘revolt’ that’s occurring among huge swathes of the population, in a society that, for various reasons, is falling apart.

Frank

‘What is going on is CLOSE TO criminal’? Really? So it isn’t quite criminal?

As succinctly as you’ve summed up the situation, part of you is still in denial, as is the case with the rest of us civilised, indoctrinated types. We describe things in terms of other things in an attempt to appreciate their full enormity, but the consequence is that we’re not looking at things squarely, but sideways.
They’ve got us where they want us.

The powers that be couldn’t care less about gays, or trannies, or wimmin, although much of the current trannie nonsense is peddled by Jewish billionaires.
They would happily throw all these people under the bus in an instant if it served globalist and corporatist interests to do so.
The trannie circus, like the global warming hoax, is just a distraction, a diversion, a rabbit hole for people to charge down and dissipate their time, effort and energy, instead of asking more awkward questions.
Why three US plutocrats own more than 170 million Americans.
Or why Amazon doesn’t pay a cent in tax on $11.2 billion in profits.
Or why tens of millions of Americans have no health care.
Or where the $21 trillion “missing” from the military budget has gone.
Or why the Fed and US gold reserves have not been audited for decades.
Or any number of other unsolved mysteries.
Just paint your face, get out your bongo drum, and fall into line behind Little Greta.
Or put on your best pink outfit and tag along with the latest Freak Show Witches’ Sabbath as it oozes its way through the city centre.

It’s more than just a distraction. There’s an underlying satanic philosophy. Baphomet is both male and female.

And global warming is being exploited but it’s not a hoax.

You destroy any credibility with the nonsense about global warming being a hoax. You can say that the science attested to by all the Academies of Science and scientific societies on Earth and 99% of actively researching climate scientists is mistaken, and produce your own, or other’s, research to prove it, but you cannot call it a ‘hoax’ ie a vast conspiracy, without evidence. That evidence would have to show how tens of thousands of scientists and others are mobilised to lie and misrepresent, and why they do it. And you would need to show how they ‘fake’ melting glaciers, melting Arctic Sea ice, melting permafrost, warming and acidifying oceans, changes in animal behaviour and plant growth, leaf burst, flower budding, leaf fall etc, and the myriad other examples of evidence of rapid change in the Earth system.

‘Transgender mania’ is a sign of cultural collapse according Camille Paglia.

Judging by the tone of the debate throughout ‘Genders, Rights and Freedom of Speech’ which discusses Bill C-16 in Canada (available on Youtube, and featuring Jordan Peterson) it appears that many of the assumptions characterised in the OP are pretty accurate.

In fact we may have reached a stage where questioning such beliefs has become a form of ‘hate speech’ which nowadays can get you de-platformed or sacked quicker than you can say cisnormative.

Of course framing this controversial issues in polemical terms was a given now that identity politics has become judge, jury and executioner should any cultural dispute emerge.

As an example, ever since Peterson challenged PC orthodoxy on transgenderism it is impossible to find any MSM reference to him that is not prefixed by the pejorative ‘right wing’ ……… in other words the usual drip, drip, drip effect the MSM are so fond of, in order to create in the minds of the readership a certain kind of persona that invalidates any subsequent views he/she/they might hold.

It’s rather depressing, though not unexpected, that the brief Corbyn ‘era’ lacked any real ideological subtance to speak of that had the power to survive his, almost inevitable, dreadful defeat.

What’s stunning was Corbyn and his supporters, almost total lack of political, strategic, ideologicl, ability. That they couldn’t find a way to capitalise on the splits in the Tory Party more effectively and buggled the Brexit fiasco, and allowed the absurd ‘anti-semitism’ narrative to seemingly castrate the leadership and Corbyn too; is unforegivable.

The Party now seems intent on destroying what’s left of it, committing suicide. They seem to actually prefer to be steered by outside forces, like the media and pro-Israeli groups and bizarre ‘identity cults’ determined to wage crusades.

The “Labour” Party provides no impediment to the progress of the ruling-class neoliberal agenda; its real function is to ensure that nobody else does, either. So good riddance to bad rubbish.

The ‘debate’ between the Labour pretenders was truly hilarious as each tried to outdo the others in groveling to the Zionassties. They should just appoint whoever Bibi and the Chief Rabbi decree, and get it over with.
