Check out the rest of Peter Boghossian’s Channel for more demonstrations of how ‘woke-reasoning’ works.

The “Agree” participants in this debate are a case in point for what the gender ideology brainwashing does to your ability to make a coherent reasonable decision based on facts. What they do demonstrate is a new word, let’s take a look:

Bigoterring is precisely what is going on here in the later half of the video.  Because gender ideology has no arguments other than hurt feelings and class antagonisms biogterring is almost always the card they play.

Pay particular attention when it comes to the part when Peter asks the Agree crowd to define their terms.  Spoiler alert: They do not.  Instead, they substitute personal attacks and bluster for arguments.  It’s chilling to see supposedly educated adults engaging in such ruthless anti-intellectual behaviour.

Expect this though when you make a stand (and you must make a stand otherwise these confabulators win) for freedom of thought and freedom of speech in our society.

 

I’m thinking that activities that celebrate regressive stereotypes of female behaviour are not particularly progressive or useful in society.  I fully support practitioners of Drag who want to practice their rituals in the appropriate societal context. However, there is a trend put Drag into contexts that are most definitely not appropriate for instance, elementary schools.  Children are not equipped intellectually or emotionally to properly understand what is going on during “Drag story book hour” or “dance celebration.  Nor should they have to be.

 

Ostensibly the purpose – “Drag Queen Story Hour, Drag Queen Storytime, and Drag Story Time are children’s events first started in 2015 by author and activist Michelle Tea in San Francisco with the goals to “inspire a love of reading, while teaching deeper lessons on diversity, self-love and an appreciation of others.” The events, usually geared for children aged 3–11, are hosted by drag queens who read children’s books, and engage in other learning activities in public libraries.“.

Sure.

But then we run up against this:

“Blomme, 38, was taken into custody “following an investigation into multiple uploads of child pornography through a Kik messaging application account in October and November 2020,” according to a statement.

A 44-page search warrant filed Friday by a Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) special agent said investigators found Blomme, using the name “dommasterbb,” uploaded 27 videos and images containing child pornography. Two of the files were uploaded at a Milwaukee County government building, the search warrant said,” a summary notes.

Blomme formerly served as the President of the Cream City Foundation from 2017 to 2020, which describes itself as “mobilizing philanthropic resources by harnessing the pride, passion, and commitment of LGBTQ+.”

The foundation also runs a Drag Queen Story Hour program, an event that “captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”

“In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real” a description adds.”

Children do not need gender fluidity or queer role models that destabilize their identity and worldview.  More pertinently, they should not be exposed to grooming by pedophiles who happily take the queer label in exchange for access to their child victims.

Let’s keep what Queer Theory is front and centre in our minds – https://youtu.be/n-NseFg2kno

 

The framework of the world we live in has been set.

How Not to Resolve the Paradox of Tolerance

Definitional clarity is usually hard to come by with the social justice crowd. Thankfully others have taken up the mantle and done the work necessary to add form to the formless.

 

This is what we are going up against.  The primacy of stand-point epistemology(1) versus the common reality we all share is huge barrier to overcome as any sort of argument of discussion can be had.  I think this is the situation that we have to prepare for when dealing with people who have been knowingly or unknowingly indoctrinated into a Critical Theory (2) mind-set.

 

The ‘social workers’ failed on every level to even engage in a substantive dialogue with Peter Boghossian. What was demonstrated in their failure to engage with Dr.Boghossian was an unwillingness to think outside their ideological box – they had the right answers – just count how many times the words “triggered” was used. These are proto-professionals who cannot engage with ideas that do not match their own. It’s completely fucking scary.

(1) – In summary, standpoint epistemology (and related identity-based epistemologies) are a complicated and widely discredited way to create and justify a kind of gnosticism around critical conceptions of identity and the relevant power dynamics in society. In practice, this typically means it is yet another justification within Theory for only people who agree with Theory to be considered knowledgeable authorities, which is then used to silence opposition and install “professionals” in positions of authority and power based on group identity alone—or, almost alone, as such people tend to have to present a critical consciousness, i.e., be woke Critical Social Justice activists, as well (see also, diversity and inclusion).

(2) – Max Horkheimer defined a “Critical Theory” in direct opposition to a “Traditional Theory” in a 1937 piece called Traditional and Critical Theory. Whereas a Traditional Theory is meant to be descriptive of some phenomenon, usually social, and aims to understand how it works and why it works that way, a Critical Theory should proceed from a prescriptive normative moral vision for society, describe how the item being critiqued fails that vision (usually in a systemic sense), and prescribe activism to subvert, dismantle, disrupt, overthrow, or change it—that is, generally, to break and then remake society in accordance with the particular critical theory’s prescribed vision. This use of the word “critical” is drawn from Marx’s insistence that everything be “ruthlessly” criticized and from his admonition that the point of studying society is to change it. Of note, then, a Critical Theory is only tangentially concerned with understanding or truth and has, as Hume might have it, abandoned descriptions of what is in favor of pushing for what the particular critical theory holds ought to be. The critical methodology, then, is the central object of concern, and it is the tool by which Social Justice scholarship and activism proceed.
