right wing warriors

Social conservatives are all about finding fault with progress. They decry social justice warriors (SWJs), political correctness, the LGBT agenda and any other movements that threaten their world view. I have written about them here: people like Ben Shapiro, Tomi Lahren, Faith Goldy, Spiro Yannopoulos and Matt Crowder. They are aggressive and insulting and make conclusions about things they know little about.

They have also gained a small but loyal following of angry millenials who want to find fault with the world and all that ails it.

These pundits are shrill and painfully annoying and are armed with the kind of smugness that youth is particularly blessed with. Their interest in truth takes a back seat to criticising what they see as an overabundance of political correctness behind which they conceal their disdain for people they do not comprehend. They are the next wave of Ann Coulters armed with an even healthier dose of chutzpah.

Basic psychology would suggest that their aggression comes from deep seated fear that things aren’t quite the way you imagine them. A well adjusted and happy person has nothing to be aggressive about and doesn’t interfere with the happiness of others unless it collides with dogmas that threaten a tidy and imagined world order.

This youth core differs from the geriatric Fox News curmudgeon but they are cut from much the same cloth. The way things are supposed to be are not to be tampered with and you risk facing their wrath on radio, social media or some college campus talk which draws no shortage of protestors. They aren’t dumb but not nearly as intelligent as they think they are since experience is what encourages doubt that not all is as it appears.

Let’s see where they are in twenty years shall we?

  1. In 20 years? Being paid to do more of what they're doing. Right wing lunacy is the last remaining career with job security. It's actually a great gig. The right wing takes are of those willing to say anything for it. And these talkers know they're auditioning for people in charge. They'll be shifted around in think tanks and appointed to positions for which they are eminently unqualified. They'll be fine. The poor saps that support them and vote for them? Not so much. In 20 years there won't be a recognizable America.

    1. extreme punditry seems to be the new form of entertainment. A pretty sad state of affairs. I also forgot to mention that dolt Tucker Carlson who always has that stupid and befuddled expression when he interviews...

How times have changed.

Whereas transition was something not to even contemplate for us, here is a young trans person who felt the opposite pressure. She looks and sounds extremely passable but decided it wasn't for her despite the social media presence of young transitioners potentially inspiring her to.

We are all different and I happen to think she's rather a smart cookie as well...


indoctrination

As transgender people, organized religion hasn't really been our friend however on the other hand it has often had little to do with true spirituality. I needed to learn this over time and much of what I was taught growing up was steeped in the judgmental superstition of society instead of what some creator would demand of me.

Regardless of your belief system, you are a child of the universe and have been endowed with uniqueness and goodness of spirit. You have probably never wished anyone ill will and you have tried your best to live within the absurd coordinate system of humanity. Yet somehow belonging to the LGBT community was entirely your fault.

As I have grown older this inherent irrationality became increasingly evident to me. I knew I was a fundamentally good person and yet I was different in a way which was not of my choosing. Hence with this comprehension my self appreciation and esteem grew in proportion.

Religion for me today seems forever trapped in the misinterpretat…

let's please read carefully

This post is prompted by a recent comment I received to one of my older posts and I wanted to address it.

I used to wonder why some transgender people accepted Blanchard’s work until I think I figured out why: they may not have examined it closely enough. They would experience cross gender arousal and then accept it was Autogynephilia without properly understanding what the term meant and what the theory said: it is an invented sexual “illness” which makes people transition. In other words, it is the arousal itself which causes this desire and not a pre-existing gender identity which does not align with birth sex. Of course, Blanchard has no explanation for the origin of his proposed “illness” only that it is a form of sexual deviance.

My counter proposal? we transition despite this arousal. In other words, the transgender identity is pre-existing and the arousal is the result of the mismatching of burgeoning sexual feelings towards females and this misaligned identity; it is not per…
