Quick Takes – Boycotting Gays, Segregating Gays, and Gaslighting Gays

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: Gay thoughtcriminals are still thoughtcriminals.

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     Just as there is no one more equal than others than those who associate with LGBTQ&c. crowd than LGBTQ&c., there is no one who is more less than equal who dare tolerate thoughcriminals, and even – gaspspeak with them?

“The Left’s fascist rampage against anyone who holds the same opinion on same sex marriage Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama did less than two years ago, marches on. Not content to steal a man’s livelihood or a near-successful attempt to destroy a small business owner, the venomous Gaystapo is now sending a chilling warning to apostates by calling for the boycott of two gay hoteliers who hold the unapproved opinion of not-hating Republican Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner are two openly gay, Manhattan-based hoteliers who own a gay-oriented hotel in the city and other commercial properties in the area. Both men are proof that the Big Gay Hate Machine does not represent all gays. These two men are obviously tolerant of opposing ideas and of the Christian lifestyle, which is why they held an event for Cruz this week in their New York penthouse.”

     Can’t have that, it’d destroy the narrative.

Queering the Child

     Boys are not girls nor girls boys.  This differentiation doesn’t really kick in until puberty, and doesn’t fully finish until full adulthood is reached.  Yet somehow pre-pubescent children, who don’t even know what being an man or a woman means, are increasingly being treated as sexual beings with unchangeable orientations and any gender they want.

     There was the infamous example of a little boy twerking at a Brazilian gay pride shindig:

     Or perhaps a child who was encouraged and praised for dressing up in a campy outfit at a New York city gay pride parade:

     Many people are fine with Gay Marriage because they believe that gay couples are superior parents (due to junk “science”) because they are portrayed as a normal middle class couple who are always great parents unlike straight fathers who tend to be portrayed as at best bumbling idjits.  Any suggestion that not all gay parents are paragons of perfect parenting are met with cried of “homophobe”.

     A person who is homosexual may very well be an excellent parent, though a same-sex couple can never provide both a mother and a father to a child.

     In this gender-bending world, a pre-pubescent child somehow knows that they will grow up to be transgendered:

     A child fancies his or herself to be a myriad number of things, and a child saying they are the opposite gender is no different than this.  But in a world where transgendered kids are celebrated, and told they are special and deserving of praise for being transgendered, the kids will naturally act in a way that keeps the approval going.  There are even those who consider “gendering” a child according to biological reality is child abuse.

Learning Your ABCs the Feminist Way

     Not content to share an “educational” book that “teaches” children their ABCs chock full of radical Progressive propaganda, Feminists now have their own ABC book!

“Why just learn your ABCs when you can be empowered by them? A new illustrated children’s book from iconic City Lights press, Rad American Women A-Z, offers kids the chance to educate themselves on women’s history and the alphabet at the same time. Written by Kate Schatz and illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl, the book was inspired by Schatz’s two-year-old daughter.”

     And who kicks off this Feminist alphabet?

     Communist and terrorist Angela Davis

Tampons & Trannies: A Bruin Fisking

     In yet another display of the decline and fall of higher education in America, UCLA special little snowflake Zoey Freedman has written a whine fest entitled: “Free tampons would slow flow of gender inequality.”

     Her article has gone viral, not just because of the idiocy of the writer, but for the hyper-PC insanity that  apologizes for making the assumption that biological reality is really real:

“Editor’s note: This blog post refers to individuals who menstruate as women because the author wanted to highlight gender inequality in health care. We acknowledge that not all individuals who menstruate identify as women and that not all individuals who identify as women menstruate, but feel this generalization is appropriate considering the gendered nature of most health care policies. “

     The article proper is so FacePalm inducing that it deserves a fisking.

“To most government officials, feminine hygiene products are a luxury item. But, every day, women are being poisoned by their own bodies because they lack access to even the most essential health products.”

     Yet women since time immemorial have been able to avoid self-poisoning despite not getting subsidized hygiene products…

“Meanwhile, most men have no problem getting covered for pills that will help them get a boner.”

     Aside from the veracity of that statement, the parallel is a silly one: Menses is normal, while impotence is a medical disorder.

“Although still greatly outnumbered and underpaid compared to their male counterparts, women have made so much progress. Yet inequality still lies in the most basic areas of human well-being. Women are still facing unequal treatment when it comes to health care and are paying out of pocket for necessary female health products, particularly tampons and pads.”

     Certainly not outnumbered on college campuses!  The wage gap is practically non-existent overall, with younger generations actually have women earning more.

     The reason for the different treatment here is due to the fact that men are biologically different from women.  Women normally go through menses between puberty and menopause.  Men never will.

“It’s about time that the federal government recognizes that even the most basic health care needs to start subsidizing the cost of tampons and pads for women, or covering the cost completely. This is only fair, since health insurance is supposed to cover the major aspects of a person’s health. But more importantly, cutting the cost of these products is a crucial step in normalizing menstruation within society, and it provides women who may not have access to these resources the opportunity to feel clean and comfortable during their period.”

     Insurance is meant to cover unexpected medical emergencies and conditions.  A woman going through menses is expected.  If the author doesn’t know this by the time she gets to college, Oy!

Surrender Your Freedom or Go Homeless

     The totalitarian punishment of Oregon bakers who didn’t want to use their personal creative abilities to promote and endorse a same-sex ceremony continues to destroy religious liberty and free speech, by threatening the very home of the bakers:

“[T]he fascist state of Oregon  is ramping up its persecution campaign against Christian bakers who declined to bake a wedding cake for a same sex lesbian couple. Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, have been told that if they don’t pay the $135,000 awarded to the lesbian couple who sued them, a lien will be placed against their home next week.”

     They can not speak out against the state’s ruling and now may lose their home… all for not wanting to participate in a ceremony that they disagreed with… and wasn’t even legally binding at the time!  The left continues to lie about this being all about denying service to two people because they were homosexual, but then the Left needs to lie.

Queering the Bank

     Not to be undone by Chase bank’s mandatory employee survey that demanded that employees admit if they were thoughtcriminals who aren’t “allies” of the “LGBT community,” JP Morgan is asking employees to publicly display an “ally” placard, thus outing “H8rz.”

“Employees are being told ‘to help create an environment for open and honest dialogue.’ The document notes descriptors such as ‘wife’ and ‘boyfriend’ are frowned upon, and ‘partner’ is preferred. Not referring to your wife as your wife ‘offers up the opportunity for more inclusive conversations.’

“…

“JP Morgan urges employees to ‘print and display your ally placard,’ which implies the recalcitrant will be noticed.

“…

“A surprise to JP Morgan clients may be its call for putting ‘your money where your mouth is! If you know of stores or companies that practice discrimination, don’t buy their products or patronize their locations.’ It is entirely possible that some of JP Morgan’s clients are on the LGBT Human Rights Campaigns list of gay-unfriendly companies.”

     It’s not just enough to be tolerant; one must celebrate and do so enthusiatically.

Quick Takes – Reeducated Rape, Reeducated History, Reeducated Professors

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: Reeducation

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     The “yes means yes” insanity being imposed on college campuses “effectively defines every sexual encounter as rape unless you follow the law’s specific requirements” is now being taught as gospel truth to underaged children:

“Now [California state Senator] de Leon is moving on to round two: Teaching high school students the ‘correct’ way to have sex. Human nature is no longer the correct way. De Leon knows the correct way — and it involves a lot of questions.

“The California state senate just passed S.B. 695, which adds affirmative consent instruction to high school health courses. The bill passed by a vote of 39-0 and had bipartisan support.”

     It’s almost as if the Junior Anti-Sex League is about to be formed for real…

The Gatekeepers of Free Speech

     We have ceded our free speech to private businesses that are controlled by Leftists.  They are the gatekeepers.  In the name of “free speech” we are allowing an elite few to destroy free speech, and more generally America.

     Reddit is but one exampleGoogle is going to rank results based on their idea of the “truth”.  Amazon, eBay, &c. can quash any reference to anything they want.

     You can be fired for stating politically incorrect ideas that are uttered outside of work, or even just expressing the support for people to say such utterances.

     America used to be about pluralism and tolerance.  Yes there was a common bond that embodied American Exceptionalism, but it wasn’t regimented or limited, but liberating.  We would put up with idiocy, and not go out of our way to punish people for wrongthink if it didn’t effect us.  This was necessary when you have people who disagree but want to live as civilized human beings.

     As Daniel Hannan noted:

You tolerate objectionable behavior up to the point of incitement.

You tolerate eccentricity up to the point of madness.

You tolerate offensiveness up to the point of harassment.

Toleration means you tolerate.  It means you tolerate what you find utterly appalling.

     Now, a select few rich Leftists can control and shape debate (via the Gramscian march).  Truth can be memoryholed to be replaced by “the truth”, and minority opinions can be made to seem like an overwhelming majority.

     The internet, once, was a way of side-stepping the gatekeepers of speech in the press, radio, or television.  Now, with the concession of communication handed over to a far Left elite, the gatekeepers have arisen yet again.

An Opportunity to Reclaim “Husband & Wife”

     Democrat members of Congress want to eliminate the words “husband” and “wife” from Federal law, and replace those terms with  gender neutral ones.

     Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA) has introduced the “Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act” and ironically declared that the “words in our laws have meaning” and that gendered terms perpetuate the until-recently idea that marriage was a union of a husband and wife.  Unsurprisingly about half of the bills sponsors are from California, which is purging the terms “mother” and “father” for its lawbooks.

     This isn’t providing “equality”, but an Orwellian attempt to destroy an institution sub rosa by keeping the word as a Humpty Dumpty plaything:

“Marriage is not just a religious institution. It is a fundamental building block of our society.

“The consequence of changing definitions can’t be ignored. Many bad laws come into being to take care of a special situation and then are enforced in a way never intended or envisioned by the writers.

“Remember, the unintended consequences not the intended consequences are the problem. Allowing naked men to parade around a girls locker room because they claim to be transgender is not the intent of laws trying to protect gay students from the very real bullying they experience, but it is an inexcusable, unintended consequence. –that actually happened!”

     However, severing “husband” and “wife” from the modern definition of “marriage” is actually a good thing.

     Marriage used to be the union of a husband and a wife in order to provide a stable environment for children in a family.

     Now “marriage” is about using the government to force others to celebrate the “love” of two people (but not all two people).

     Now, with the words “husband” and “wife” separated from this new definition of “marriage”, it can be reclaimed and be re-associated with what the institution really is.
