Quick Takes – Cisnormativity: In Anime; In Preschool; In Human Behavior

     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: It’s like we’re a sexually dimorphic species that perpetuates itself through dudes and chicks screwing…

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     One of the woke views of the future of humanity is a post-humanist view where gender/biological sex are outdated things to be liberated from… especially that entire icky “reproduction” thing. Little surprise, then, that when hardcore Leftists of the most woke bent suddenly realize that they can be identified as the villains in a futuristic science-fiction mecha anime from Japan, where the heroes rediscover how a male and female having a child together is natural and normal, is somehow now “rightwing propaganda“.

     The full meltdown is both inane and worthy of belittling.

     It’s not just the dastardly cis-normative foreigners… it’s domestic preschools that are perpetuating normalcy!

“A University of Michigan instructor recently claimed that preschool classrooms are rife with ‘heteronormativity’ that perpetuates ‘inequalities related to gender.’

“Heidi M. Gansen, a Ph.D. student who teaches sociology at UMich, advanced these claims in a July 14 article that examines the prevalence of ‘heteronormativity’ in a set of nine Michigan preschool classrooms she visited.”

“Defining ‘heteronormativity’ as a culture in which ‘heterosexuality is always assumed, expected, ordinary, and privileged,’ Gansen then argues that the issue is especially important to her research because preschools contribute to the ‘reproduction of inequalities pertaining to gender and sexuality,’ such as gender roles and gendered feelings.

“‘Preschool is a good place to begin this examination, because practices that facilitate heteronormativity in classrooms become more engrained in later years of schooling,’ she explains.

“Accordingly, Gansen spent ten months observing childhood behavior at a set of nine Michigan preschools, finding numerous ways in which heterosexuality is ‘produced’ and ‘enforced’ by students and teachers.”

     Ummm, actually nature is what produces and enforces cisnormativity.

     Perhaps it is this denial of reality that leads to many of today’s social problems?

“Researchers at the University of Bath found severe antisocial behavior known as conduct disorder may be different between boys and girls.

“The study, published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, utilized magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, to map the brains of more than 200 teenagers age 14 to 18.

“Researchers identified 96 teens with conduct disorder, which is a severe antisocial behavior with symptoms ranging from lying and truancy to physical violence and weapon use, and 104 healthy teenagers.

“Conduct disorder is believed to affect at least 5 percent of school age children and it is three times more common in boys than girls.

“The study showed that specific areas of the brain differ in structure between boys and girls with conduct disorder, such as lower cortical thickness in boys with conduct disorder but higher thickness in girls with conduct disorder.”

    The thing that amused me more about the DarliFra incident than having people lose it on seeing an outright Tumblr squad as antagonists, was that they were saying that a series where the main couple were race*-mixing was right wing.

    *Actually, in strict Linnaean terms, that would be class-mixing.
