Oh, hey another good Sunday post! The gender religion, like traditional religions is founded on bullshit.

Back in June, I read an blog post by Diana Shaw on the “Women are Human” blog that interested me but at the time, I was too busy to write a blog about it myself. I simply copied & pasted it into a Word document & saved it.

Going through my Word files, I found it & thought that it would be appropriate to post it today … being a Sunday & all, when so many people are listening to one kind of sermon or another.

Diana Shaw writes: “Transactivists say what they say for religious reasons. The idea that there is a female within a male body requires faith to believe, as there is no evidence of this phenomenon. The belief that a person’s soul can transcend their body by faith, mantras (“trans women are women, trans men are men”) or works (hormones and/or surgery) is a faith. We…

I am ashamed of my province.  There so much stupid going on around the pandemic and getting vaccinated.  The stupid people, of course, are now clogging up the ICU’s province wide bumping other life saving procedures and surgeries off the table.  We face a nursing shortage and devastating work attrition within the profession.

Then we have MLA’s who have stuff like this posted on their Facebook.

“David Shepherd, the NDP critic for health, is calling for Pitt’s removal from the government caucus for “undermining Alberta’s vaccination efforts on social media.”

Pitt is not the lone Airdrie-area UCP MLA to make social media posts that appear to be at odds with government policy.

Earlier this week, Airdrie-Cochrane MLA Peter Guthrie issued an apology letter to his constituents where he apologized for the province’s reintroduction of public health restrictions after the provincial government declared earlier this summer that Alberta would be ‘Open for Summer’ and ‘Open for Good’.”

Let’s make Intubation Great Again is the new UCP slogan.

 

I’m getting dizzy for the amount I’ve been shaking my head in disbelief and amazement. :(

Another example of the colonization of female space in society with progressive support. Progressives must be all a flutter as they have enabled the beating of a woman by a man in a supposed ‘fair’ fight.

This is so WRONG.

Transgender Alana McLaughlin “won” “her” debut in Mixed Marshal Arts. “She” is not the first transgender pretending to be a woman so HE can beat up women, but expect “her” to become a star in this …. sport.

Gimme a break already! That’s a man!

Not only is Alana a man, but he is a Veteran of the United States Army Special Forces & he didn’t start to transition until after he left the Army. So all that muscle mass & bulk & physical training hasn’t gone away. It doesn’t disappear when a man starts taking hormones & declares that he’s a she.

F*ng cheater.

How long before a WOMAN (& no, I won’t say “ciswoman” because that frames women on THEIR terms) is killed in a sporting event by one of these cheating bullies? `

SAY IT AGAIN: TRANSWOMEN ARE MEN.

Women deserve their own…

But women-only spaces in Rape Crisis Centres, refuges, women’s centres or women-only buildings or events, etc are spaces where women are not required to make all the mental self-adjustments to function in the presence of men. Women survivors and feminists (many of us both) created these spaces because we know how important this is.

For many women and girls, the boundaries between domestic and sexual violence and abuse, are very much blurred. For some this abuse includes prostitution and other forms of sexual exploitation too.

It’s not unusual for women who’ve been subjected to men’s violence to develop a trauma response. These sometimes develop after a single incident of violence, particularly with regards to sexual violence, though sometimes it can develop after years or months of living in fear, walking on egg-shells, recognising that tone of voice, that look in the eyes, that sigh, that pause, that silence, that change in his breathing. Some women have lived this, with a succession of perpetrators starting from their dad – who may have been physically, sexually or emotionally violent, abusive and controlling or a mixture of them all – all their lives.

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can develop in response to trauma that may have occurred…

Some decades ago on a daytime TV talk show – I’ll never find it – the African-American public intellectual, Cornel West, was seated next to some Ku Klux Klan members, and the host said something about the KKK representing white people. West gestured at the white supremacists next to him on the stage and replied, “These people don’t represent white people; they represent morons.” That encapsulated the norm in anti-racist discourse in the post-1960s trajectory (post-MLK/post-hippies). It was not black vs white but, as Dr. King called it, a “coalition of conscience” on one side and racists on the other, “for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny . . . that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom” (“I Have a Dream,” 1963).

How times have changed. Many in the…
