The chronically fragile have been working overtime in Canada as of late (thanks to the National Post for the article).  Apparently respecting the material reality we all share can get you in trouble with the authorities as Josh Alexander found out.

“That Canada is becoming less tolerant comes as no surprise, but even so a Catholic high school getting one of their 16-year-old students arrested is a bit of a shock, especially when the heart of the issue is his religious beliefs.

Josh Alexander was arrested by police Monday afternoon for breaching an exclusion order, but the real crime that the student is being punished for is upholding his Catholic beliefs and doing so in what some would no doubt think is a defiant and troublesome manner.”

Stating the factual reality of our existence in some circumstances is a crime. Let that sink in for a bit.

Josh, a Christian, believes there are only two genders, that people can’t switch genders, and that male students shouldn’t use girls’ washrooms. But expressing those views in a classroom discussion on gender at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew, Ont., got him suspended.

“I got suspended for comments made during a class discussion,” said Josh in an interview. “It was about male students using female washrooms, gender dysphoria and male breastfeeding. Everyone was sharing their opinions on it, any student who wanted to was participating, including the teacher

“I said there were only two genders and you were born either a male or a female and that got me into trouble. And then I said that gender doesn’t trump biology.”

Nothing unreasonable been stated so far.  My quibble would be that using ‘gender’ instead of ‘sex’ when discussing these issues already concedes too much to ground to the gender ideologues.

Gender is the set of the prescribed stereotypes society has for members of the male and female sex classes.  Like most stereotypes, gender is usually quite unhelpful and toxic when it comes to humans flourishing within society.  So, gender = (usually negative) sex stereotypes.

““Freedom once taken for granted is lost,” the Grade 11 student added. “Freedom of religion is probably one of our most important freedoms so I’m not going to surrender it in the face of persecution.

“It just goes to show how little freedom of expression we have in our country.”

James Kitchen, a lawyer from the Liberty Defense Fund which is representing Josh, said in a statement that the student was told he could only return to school “if he agreed not to use the ‘dead name’ of any transgender student and agreed to exclude himself from his two afternoon classes because those classes are attended by two transgender students who disapprove of Josh’s religious beliefs.””

Another person cannot attend class because they disapprove of someone’s religious beliefs?  This is in a Catholic School for heaven’s sake!  It would seem that the new gender-religion has replaced the old religion but has turned back the dial to when it wasn’t socially acceptable to criticize religious belief.  As an Atheist, I find this juxtaposition both perplexing and ironic.

There are no beliefs in a free society that should be beyond reproach.  This includes transgender ideology and its unfounded (and completely risible) beliefs of a gendered soul, being born in the wrong body, humans can change sex et cetera.  Different religion – same bullshit.

“Josh said he had never “dead named” anyone, that is referred to their previous name before transitioning.

“Compelling Josh to utter falsehoods regarding gender contrary to his beliefs and segregating him from classes are repugnant manifestations of religious discrimination,” said Kitchen.

Matters escalated when Josh was later served with an exclusion order.

On Monday, when he tried to go school, the cops were called and he got arrested.

“I walked into one of my classes. I sat down and everyone looked pretty surprised to see me there. Within two minutes the vice-principal was in the classroom asking me to leave,” Josh said.

He left the class and “almost immediately I was met with the police.” Josh was put in the back of a cruiser, driven off property and later released and charged with trespassing.”

Speaking the truth should not be a crime.

“But is that the society we want to become? Arresting 16-year-old kids for turning up at school when they’ve been suspended for their religious beliefs? Was there no other way? Could the school not have tried harder to find a solution? Was calling the police really the only option?

It appears we are now so intolerant that we cannot stand people defending their religious beliefs in a classroom at a supposedly religious school.

Josh doesn’t appear to be a shrinking violet. He obviously holds strong beliefs and is passionate about them.”

I have opposed organized religions for most of my adult life and I have never once felt threatened by my opponents.  Nor have I had faced possibly severe social repercussions for stating my (decidedly untoward) views on religion.  Gender ideology here in Canada though, seems to be the unquestionable religion of choice , and it demands utter obedience and compliance with its diktats.

Christianity and Islam once held this special status.  Fuck that.  I am not going back to not being able to criticize a self appointed sacred caste within Canadian society.  Gender bullshit stinks just as bad as religious bullshit.

“According to its website, St Joseph’s works to promote “education within a framework of a Catholic Christian environment.”

It adds, “We truly believe in the enhancement of the spiritual, moral, and emotional well-being of those belonging to our community.”Kitchen, Josh’s lawyer, would disagree.

“Under the guise of ‘safety’, as that term has been revised by woke gender activists now pervasive in public institutions, Josh has been penalized for expressing his Christian beliefs regarding gender and modesty, beliefs which also happen to align with both objective truth and actual safety,” he said in a statement. “Josh not only has a right to express himself during class discussions and through public forums, he also has a right not to be discriminated against by his school for his sincere religious beliefs. Being suspended and excluded from attending classes is the height of discrimination.”

The activist Left or Woke have twisted the language.  It is what they do.  How does excluding someone = an inclusive learning environment.  A brief detour on what they’ve done to the language:


Yeah.  So, being inclusive is actually being ‘exclusive’ and encouraging the erosion of free speech and thought in society.

“The board said on human rights issues, it takes its guidance from the policies issued by the Ontario Human Rights (OHR) Commission and directives issued by the Ministry of Education.

Its washroom practices follow the OHR guidelines that state that trans people “have the right to access these facilities based on their lived gender identity.”

Do Catholics at a religious school have the right to access the facility based on their lived religious identity?  The OHR is huffing gasoline on this issue.  The idea that somehow ‘gender identity’ trumps material reality is a completely foolish and wrong headed notion.  Facilities in the above statement refers to bathrooms – so if a boy ‘feels’ like a girl he can use the girls bathroom.  No problems (other than the destruction of female only spaces and female boundaries) there, right?

The new transgender religion, like the old traditional religions are steeped in the hatred of women and seek to roll back their rights, boundaries, and safety in society.

The opposition to this new persecution of women is stirring in Canada (we sadly, are still far behind the UK in this area).  Once the language obfuscation is stripped away and more cases are brought court perhaps we can start rolling back this pernicious transgender ideology and all the harm it is causing in society.



Religious belief was declining in the West. Then the new-left decided to make up a new gender religion and here we are.
