The argument that transactivism is homophobic as well as misogynistic.

 

Catch the rest of the article here.

“In the past several years ‘gender’ has been radically re-defined by a reactionary movement that has transformed it from a set of conventions and constraints on what men and women can be or do, to an interior mental state. Chrissie Daz is right in saying that something fundamental has changed in the way in which gender is understood in the twenty first century, with the new transgender warriors representing a major paradigm shift in gender thinking over the last forty years. An idea once wielded by the liberal left against conservative sexist and heterosexist social norms, gender has now been retooled as a weapon in the armoury of a regressive politics that is not only sexist but homophobic. Today’s transgender movement reinforces the myth that ‘men’ and ‘women’ are altogether different species of human beings, not just reproductively, but mentally — with different desires, different needs, different aptitudes, and different minds. Now transgender spokespersons support the traditionally conservative naturalisation of ‘masculinity’ and ‘femininity’ as innate psychological states, intrinsic in the human subject from birth and arising from brain chemistry or other hormonal interactions of the body. The progressive idea that there is no uniform way that all boys as such (or all girls as such) necessarily ‘feel’ or ‘think’ has been scrapped.
Instead of railing against a rigid heterosexist gender binary (as their rhetoric would suggest) the new Trans warriors assume that their innate sense of self (‘identity’) is inherently ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’ prior to any socialisation. Apparently, the influence of cultural indoctrination is negligible. Gender has been de-politicised, naturalised and medicalised in the same stroke.”

 

The take away is that trans-ideology is sexist and homophobic excluding it from any reasonable sort of feminism. :)

 

 

“Transgender is an anti-gay, anti-lesbian, homophobic and sexist movement. Their aims are to roll back the visibility and pride of homosexuals and undo the scant gains made for women in the female equality movement. The Kennebunk High School administration is perfectly clear: Gay Pride should go back in the closet.”

Fascinating stuff.  I’m wondering how long the LGB community will cater to the whims of these individuals.  I mean it’s okay for females (obviously) to be marginalized, claims about their bodies and realities erased, and their boundaries ignored – par for the course.  But really LGB community, what now?

Well let’s take a look at the issue of sexual orientation and sexual preferences when it meets with some of the gender ideology that is popular today.  It would seem, at least according to Ms.Berns, that it just homophobia dressed up to look and sound like its progressive and inclusive.

Highlights gleaned from ‘never-obey‘.

Riley: If you met someone who was extremely attractive, had a great personality, but didn’t have the genitals that you wanted, you might be surprised to find that it isn’t a deal breaker.

Magdalen: Yeah I’d be surprised! BECAUSE IT IS A DEAL BREAKER. […]

Riley: Gay conversion therapy has been proven not to work, but you can unlearn your own prejudices. It just takes time and conscious effort.[…] The more you work at unlearning your own prejudices, the more you’ll be able to see people from these groups as people rather than as tired stereotypes.

These people are positioning not having sex with males as an act of discrimination against a marginalized group. Point blank. We need to be vigilant about calling this out as we see it for what it is.

Every generation men come up with yet another cockamamie scheme to try to convince women that they must not ever say no to being fucked by men.

 

Did you need another reason to be critical of christianity? Let’s take a look at what can happen when you preach hate and intolerance in your holy house of risible stupidity. You see, I’m all for the idea of having a meeting place in the community because people need to interact with people. Interactivity breeds empathy and respect for others on a general level – keeping in touch with your community is not only good for the neighbourhood, but it is good for you and your health as well. If we could dispense with all the fantastical bullshite that religions bring to the table I would be all over going to church.

Let’s try for a little more community building and a little less condemnation, otherwise we risk what happens in the video.

samesexmarriage_02The last week or so my view of humanity world over has been severely soured. I’ve often expressed an attitude that Alberta is the ‘Texas of Canada’ when it comes to issues of equality and progressive society. Hidden in that stance is the inference that other places aren’t as backward, that in other civilized areas these issues are all but resolved. This inference, it turns out, is ill-founded. Hillbilly homophobia is running rampant even in “high culture” nations.

The French government in pushing through a bill that will legalize same sex marriage and allow same sex couples to adopt. It was one of the issues that got them voted in and, in a refreshing change of pace, they are taking steps to quickly make good on their campaign promise. Sounds great! Let’s celebr…what’s that going on outside?

On March 24th, hundreds of thousands of hateful French bigots (that’s pronounced bee-jo, the ‘t’ is silent) marched in protest of this bill. Police had to resort to using tear gas to keep the mob in control. Since then, things have not gotten better. Violence is rising. Notably a gay bar was attacked, windows smashed and patrons injured. Absolutely disgusting behaviour, a French red-neck horde branding monumental levels of idiocy and malevolence.

But surely, this is only the uneducated rabble, right? No such luck. In parliament, members of the opposition say this bill threatens children, one going so far as to say “You are assassinating children”. I would hope, even in our own ‘Texas of Canada’, such a disgustingly hateful statement would result in the immediate resignation/termination/ruination of any deplorable MLA that dared utter it.

Words failed me in the face of this level of soul crushing mindless hate. I was aghast. I started writing this article a week ago but could not finish.

The other day, however, I found a brilliant ray of hope from across the globe. On April 17th New Zealand passed a Marriage Amendment Bill which that defines marriage as a union between two people. This made New Zealand the thirteenth nation in the world to legalize same sex marriage. And how was this legislation toward equality met by onlookers? Unfounded hate, violent riots and tear gas? Nope. Instead the Parliament House erupted in applause. Then, in a fantastic display of humanity affirming beauty, the spectators in the house broke into song. A Maori song of love.

If you’ve ever witnessed the cut-throat farce that is question period in our own parliament, you may well appreciate my amazement that such a thing could happen. My heart swelled and my eyes got misty.

Props, respect, accolades, honour, acclaim and kudos to New Zealand for its monumental step forward and to New Zealanders for their wondrously appropriate reaction. May your shining example wake up a few French hate mongers to just how full of vile depravity their despicable conduct truly is.

I do love what the commitment to mythology does to people.  Religion distorts empathy and reason and allows bigots like the pastor featured in this clip to get away with spewing more than a few spitefully atrocious statements.  It is funny though for a religion that often claims to represent absolute morality we observe that claims are presented such as:  love thy neighbour.  Note closely there is no “but only if they are heterosexual…” is not included anywhere in that phrase.

The heinous nature of christianity continues to stain our history with its bigotry and hate.  We should do ourselves a favour and opt out as soon as possible.
