Social media strips away some of the filters we have, sometimes allowing one’s learned attitudes and dispositions to show through. Women name the problem and men consciously or unconsciously defend the patriarchal status quo. Ironically the male defenders in this piece threaten the woman with rape for act of bringing attention the societal problem of the rape culture we live in.

This ‘normal’ disposition that these dudes are showing is a learned behaviour. If men can learn to treat women as second class, they can learn to treat women as actual human beings. The process starts with one interaction at a time – the question is can males that know better stop this shit at the root – because your silence is complicity to the status quo and all of the misery it visits on females and males.

Oh, hey there kinksters. Your progressive nature is showing…

It is anyone’s guess what proportion of trans activism involves deliberate gaslighting and what proportion involves vulnerable people with certain personality profiles employing immature defence mechanisms. Nonetheless, there’s a flavour to their illogical and abusive behaviour that could be described as “psychological strategies brought into play by the unconscious mind to manipulate, deny, or distort reality in order to defend against feelings of anxiety and unacceptable impulses and to maintain one’s self-schema or other schemas”.

This intrigues me so in this post I aim to list examples.

PROJECTION

“A defense mechanism, operating unconsciously, whereby that which is emotionally unacceptable in the self is rejected and attributed (projected) to others.”

So, when trans activists say:

“Our existence isn’t for debate” they mean “We are debating existance of women”.

“Feminists are committing literal violence against us” they mean “We are committing literal violence against feminists”.

“You are trying to erase us”…

If the light-show actually happened, it *might* be worth it.
