Queering the Census

     Civil liberties to the Left, much like democracy, is but a tram ride to travel upon until they arrive at their immanetized eschaton destination. No clearer example of that can be seen then when it comes to sexuality and gender, specifically the demand that the government breaches privacy to get involved “in the bedroom”: To wit, the demand by some, including Sens. Tom Carper (D-DE) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) who want the Federal government to query every person in the country about their sexual orientation and gender identity (i.e. “SOGI).

     How dare the government violate people’s privacy, it was decried, by forcing itself “into people’s bedroom” by having any say over anyone’s sexuality (or at least to the degree that can be gotten away with), even if it is public and involves government sanction! From this initial excuse for a “right of privacy”, old laws reflecting old values were swept aside by hook or crook to the point where “the right of privacy” has become an anchor to the transformative Left, who now desire to eschew privacy because that now stands in their way of immanetizing their eschaton destination, and thus desire to leave the tram of civil liberties in order to prevent anyone else from gaining freedom from them.

     This is standard operating procedure for the Left, and increasingly one that they are willing to openly embrace.

An Evergreen Madness

     There was a time when normal people could delude themselves that the hardcore madness of the Left was concentrated in a few self-segregating colonies of madness. Even in higher education, one could delude themselves that most departments and majors as most colleges were still teaching things of academic worth, with the Progressive insanity limited to the odd social studies department or a some oddball colleges or universities.

     Such a time is over. It is clear the cancer has metathesized throughout all departments, and throughout higher education. The perfect poster-child for this madness has stepped forth. It isn’t some small private liberal arts college, or some infamous campus such as U.C. Berkeley. It is Evergreen State College in Washington state.

     While in the past, faculty, the community, and the police would be willing to stand up to disorder, let alone overt violence, today hardcore Leftists have made the campus a no-go zone for non-indoctrinated students who have not (yet) received the holy revelation of “Social Justice”. The adults have lost control, and the grown children (complete with “Rainbow Fort” safe-spaced) are violently running rampant.

Just When You Thought That Western Civilization Couldn’t Die Even More Stupidly

     This happens…

     Yes, hobby horses have exits for ages, not only used by children pretending, but also by adults for a lark, pantomime, or religious symbolism. But people haven’t seriously competed with hobby horses as a sport with winners and losers… probably because in reality they are all losers once they’ve gotten over kindergarten.

     It gets worse:

“This phenomenon has some kind of strange feminist undercurrent, where the participants have been indoctrinated to say things like, ‘There are no boys here bossing you around, telling you what to do.’ Is that a thing? Because in my experience with my girls and their boy playmates, it’s the girls doing all the bossing.”

Quick Takes – Privileging Queerness: No Straight Chicks; Pedophiles; Secrets with Kids

     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: Shut up, breeder!

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     The Left like to whine about “systems of oppression” that gives “unearned privilege and power” to someone based on their race… or sexuality. Looks like they are just projecting:

“Wiggins, a four-time All-American at Stanford, asserts she was targeted for harassment from the time she was drafted by Minnesota because she is heterosexual and a nationally popular figure, of whom many other players were jealous.

“‘Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge,’ Wiggins said. ‘I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place. There was a whole different set of rules they (the other players) could apply.

“‘There was a lot of jealousy and competition, and we’re all fighting for crumbs,’ Wiggins said. ‘The way I looked, the way I played – those things contributed to the tension.

“‘People were deliberately trying to hurt me all of the time. I had never been called the B-word so many times in my life than I was in my rookie season. I’d never been thrown to the ground so much. The message was: “We want you to know we don’t like you.”‘”

Happy Flag Day, 2017

     Happy Flag Day!

     There are many historical flags associated with the United States, particularly during the War of Independence.

     One such flag is the Moultrie Flag:

“The Liberty flag was designed, by commission, in 1775 by Colonel William Moultrie, to prepare for war with Great Britain.

“It was flown by his troops in the successful defense of Sullivan’s Island against the British fleet in June 1776.

“Fighting back stridently during a ten-hour bombardment and siege, Moultrie’s forces (primarily the 2nd South Carolina Regiment) eventually led the British to withdraw entirely, saving Charleston.

“During the battle, the flag was actually shot away, but Sergeant William Jasper ran out in the open and hoisted it again, apparently rallying the troops until a new stand could be provided. This dramatic event, along with the pivotal role of the battle itself, earned the flag a place in the hearts of the people of South Carolina, as well as cementing it as a symbol of liberty in the South, and the new nation in general.

“It therefore became the standard of the South Carolina militia, and when the war officially ended with the liberation of Charleston, on December 14, 1782, it was presented by General Nathanael Greene’s ‘Southern Continental & Militia Army’, as the first American flag to be displayed in the South.”

Death Cult Diversity

     When a person hears about a terrorist attack, one of the normal reactions is to think of those who were killed, be it by putting them and the survivors in one’s thoughts and prayers, be outraged over their deaths, or—if one were a terrorist sympathizer—revel in their deaths.

     The Left are anything but normal, or even sane.

     The Commissioner of the London Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, thought it fit to mention that the death of so many has demonstrated something wonderful: The dead weren’t dominated by White people, but was racially and nationally diverse!

“‘In terms of our witnesses that we’ve spoken to so far, out of the 300-odd people, there are about 20 different countries of origin. And the London British population comes from all kinds of backgrounds and every kind of faith and ethnicity,’ she continued.

“But it was her next statement made by the 56-year-old, who became the first female police chief of the city in April, that made her the target of scorn on social media.

“‘We believe of course that that’s what makes our city so great,’ Dick aid. “It’s a place where the vast majority of time it’s incredibly integrated and that diversity gives us strength.'”

     So not to worry, o politically correct obsessive, it is acceptable to mourn the dead because they were not just a bunch of icky White people!

Mandatory Trans in Canada

     In the United States we have already seen many states ban s-called “conversion therapy” whereby a medical professional is not allowed to suggest that maybe, juuust maybe, a “gender confused” boy is actually a boy, or an actual girl a girl—despite this being but a transient phase that the kids get over.

     However, parents can still try to help, either themselves or with religious advisors. The 1st Amendment protection of religious freedom, and more broadly parental right (give or take an abortion or million), unfortunately does not exist in Canada, where the province of Ottawa has made it illegal for parents to not enthusiastically embrace a child’s (likely cajoled or manipulated) fancy that they are “trans”:

“The Canadian province of Ontario has passed a legislation that has been described by critics as ‘totalitarian’ as it allows the government to seize children from families who do not accept gender ideology.

“Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, was passed by a vote of 63–23 on June 1, the last day before Queen’s Park adjourns for the summer, Life Site News reported.

“The measure repeals and replaces the Child and Family Services Act, which governs child protection services, as well as adoption and foster care services.

“Under the legislation, ‘gender identity’ and ‘gender expression’ are included as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.” However, the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child is removed from consideration in assessing the child’s bests interest.”

     Of course, it’ll still be perfectly legal to pressure a child to “go trans” since that would be seen as just “encouraging” them to come out of their cis-normative shackles. In contrast, if a child decides that they really aren’t transgendered, parents and authorities will pressure them to go back to being “trans” in order to fight cis-normative oppression and whatnot.

     Though they haven’t gone as far as Scotland, the new law provides for “early intervention services and community support services”.
