‘Gender’ Madness: How Far It’s Gone

Posted on | April 17, 2016 | 42 Comments

Michael Walsh at PJ Media calls attention to this video in which Joseph Backholm of the conservative Family Policy Institute interviewed students at the University of Washington about gender-neutral restrooms:

Generally speaking, I don’t watch YouTube videos and seldom recommend them, but you definitely need to watch that one.

At about 0:45, he interviews a girl who says, “You know, whether you identify as male or female and whether your sex at birth is matching to that, you should be able to utilize the resources.” Next, Backholm asks a girl: “So if I told you that I was a woman, what would you respond to that?” She answers, “Good for you! Like, OK, yeah!”


What part of “crazy” do I need to explain here? When did our nation’s universities cease to teach biology and instead begin indoctrinating young people in what can only be described as sexual Lysenkoism?

The University of Washington’s Q Center (“Queering a World Class Education: Centering Trans/Formational Space”) describes itself as “a fierce primarily student run resource center dedicated to serving anyone with or without a gender or sexuality.” While the center claims to celebrate “all sexual and gender orientation, identities, and expressions,” it ignores anyone at the university who might happen to be normal.

Being normal means you are privileged, whereas the crowd of weirdos at the university’s Q Center are oppressed by virtue of their weirdness. One’s location within the privilege/oppression dynamic is all that matters for young people in social-justice indoctrination centers like the University of Washington, where parents send their children to undergo taxpayer-funding training for their future careers as progressive activists.

Transgender madness is “strong delusion” (II Thessalonians 2:11), which flourishes in 21st-century academia because it is now impermissible to speak truth on university campuses. You will be condemned as a bigot is you assert that men and women are different, and that these differences are a matter of biology. This was why Lawrence Summers was purged from the presidency of Harvard University a decade ago after he asserted that there are “innate differences” between men and women.

Feminist gender theory — the social construction of the gender binary within the heterosexual matrix — has become Official Truth in academia, and no criticism of these lunatic ideas is permitted on campus. Everyone in the administration and faculty of the 21st-century university is required to embrace this ideology, and speech-code policies are enforced to ensure that students are never exposed to any other concepts. Feminism Is Queer, as Eastern Washington University Professor Mimi Marinucci declared in the title of her 2010 Women’s Studies textbook, and the queering of feminism has had predictable consequences. In fact, Professor Marinucci recently announced a new edition of her textbook:

In the years since Feminism Is Queer was first published in 2010, feminist and LGBTQ activism has increased and evolved at an incredible rate. With the current third wave of feminism and gay rights issues steadily dominating mainstream media, Mimi Marinucci’s innovative concept of queer feminism that unites natural allies, queer and feminist theory, is more vital than ever before.
This updated and expanded edition explores with the relevancy of queer feminism to a new generation of feminist activists and offers a way to both understand gender, sex, and sexuality while fostering solidarity between allies for women’s and LGBTQ rights. Bringing this comprehensive introduction to gender and queer theory up to date are examinations of the latest developments in feminism and queer theory, including new forms of both feminism and antifeminism developing out of online communities, as well as the growing significance of transgender experiences in mainstream media. An essential guide for anyone with an interest in gender or sexuality, this new edition will be indispensable to those wanting to stay current on the vital role that these intersecting disciplines play in contemporary LGBTQ and feminist movements.

Considering what is taught in classrooms, is anyone surprised to learn that the University of Washington offers a “Queer Mentoring Program,” which “provides a safe, affirming, and exciting environment” where the student’s “sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression is supported and celebrated by an educated and experienced mentor”?

The director of this taxpayer-funded program at the University of Washington is Jen Self, “a renaissance queer . . . and anti-oppression educator” who describes her career as “queer activism.” Among the accomplishments listed on Professor Self’s curriculum vitae is a 2011 conference presentation entitled, “Queering Queer Space: Making the case for Critical Feminist & Queer Methodologies in Social Work via Discourse and Spatial Analysis of Homonormative Whiteness.” This was actually the topic of her Ph.D. dissertation:

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (lgbtq) college centers emerged in the early 1970’s in response to student, faculty, and staff activism and demands for safe and protective spaces from heterosexism and homophobia. Despite 40 years of practice, however, little research has been conducted about these spaces. Recognizing the importance of lgbtq campus centers and the political and identity struggles within the movement that created them; this dissertation addressed this gap in research knowledge. Specifically, the study aimed to: (1) interrogate the power and influence of the leadership of lgbtq centers (directors and other primary leaders) via the exploration of the ways in which dominance in the form of “homonormative whiteness” is interrupted, disrupted, resisted, and (re)produced discursively and spatially through lgbtq campus-based centers; and (2) examine tensions that arised as directors and programs operationalize social transformation praxis models while maintaining their core purpose of safety and respite from heterosexism and homophobia. To explore these issues, I undertook a modified extended case study of six campus centers. The case study data included in-depth interviews with directors and center leaders, researcher observations, photographs, and hand-drawn maps produced by center leaders. The methodological approach was broadly critical and interpretive: specific analytic strategies included critical discourse analysis (spatial and dialogic). By examining the role of lgbtq center leadership discourse and center space in the (re)production and resistance of homonormative whiteness, this study contributes to several bodies of literature: (1) center development and practice; (2) intersectionality and praxis within student and community centers; and (3) social justice within higher education.

When I say that Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, this is what I mean: Anyone can examine the “queer activism” Jen Self conducts at the University of Washington and see that it is insane, but no one on campus can say so.

This Official Truth is imposed on students at taxpayer expense, and dissent is effectively criminalized by laws and policies that treat disagreement as illegal “discrimination” or “harassment.” Under the totalitarian campus regime enforced by feminist hegemony in academia, the Official Truth of gender theory can never be criticized or questioned.

“Feminism is about redefining our social value system.”
Anita Sarkeesian, 2015

“Feminism is about change. It challenges the existing pattern of relations between the sexes. . . . In doing so, it necessarily takes issue with the customs and practices of existing societies.”
Anne Phillips, Gender and Culture (2010)

“Sexism is the belief system that supports patriarchy: the rule of men over women. . . .
“Sexism relies on heterosexism. . .
“Political strategy must be based on a clear analysis and the goal of eliminating heteropatriarchy if we are to eliminate heterosexism.”

Joy A. Livingston, “Individual Action and Political Strategies: Creating a Future Free of Heterosexism,” in Preventing Heterosexism and Homophobia, edited by Esther D. Rothblum and Lynne A. Bond (1996)

Perhaps the reader perceives how current controversies are the result of policies implemented over the course of decades by activists whose credentials, motives and methods no one dared to criticize, for fear of being accused of sexism, homophobia or other prejudices.

Criticism of feminist gender theory has been effectively prohibited on most university campuses for more than a decade, and very few college-educated Americans under 30 have ever encountered any informed opposition to the “queer activism” that is now conducted at taxpayer expense on most campuses. No professor at the University of Washington would ever describe male and female as biological categories that typically produce “innate differences” in appearance and behavior, differences that are recognized (not “constructed”) by society because this normal pattern of difference is beneficial to men and women alike.

It is quite literally insane to pass laws or enforce policies imposing a “gender-neutral” policy for public toilets and gymnasium locker rooms in order to accommodate the delusions of transvestite weirdos. Men are not oppressed by being excluded from using the women’s restroom, and men who want to engage in a masquerade of womanhood are mentally ill perverts whose deviant fetishism poses a danger to society.

“Truth is great and will prevail if left to herself . . . she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them.”
Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, 1786

Truth is “the proper and sufficient antagonist to error,” but feminists now exercise such authority in higher education that truth has been “disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate,” and no one is “permitted freely to contradict” feminism’s dangerous errors.

+ + + + +

The Sex Trouble project began in 2014 and reader support is vital to this research into radical feminism. Contrary to what feminists claim, patriarchy is usually just another word for “paying the bills.” And remember the Five Most Important Words in the English Language:


Never doubt God answers prayers. Thanks in advance.

    Black rapper Azealia Banks fresh off of telling the world she wants Sarah Palin raped by “big, veiny” black cocks has informed us that Jack Dorsey, CEO of two publicly listed companies relies, on black magic (or is it magic of color?) to beef his stock price and protect him.

    It would be interesting to pinpoint the time when the word “discriminate,” and its progeny began to have an exclusively negative connotation. it originally connoted the ability to choose or select based upon discernment or judgment of Truth versus Falsity, Good versus Evil, Right versus Wrong, etc. A “discriminating palate,” for example, was a good thing.

    It’s use now is so negative that modern Man has forgotten how to make those (correct) choices, leading to the lunacy we see in the video above and across society today. Again, we are drawn to Orwell’s essay on language and its relation to thought. When the appropriate language disappears, the ability to think quickly follows because the mind has no tools with which to work.

    We’re seeing it happen in real time.

    Let me suggest again that you may wish to watch “Frida” a biopic of Frida Kahlo played by Salma Hayek. Frida was a communist in early 20th century Mexico who just happens to swing both ways. Well perhaps this sort of lifestyle just naturally fits in with the godlessness of communism. I found it to be very well done but it’s not for the kids.

    The only way to win this “Game” the liberals are playing is to NOT PLAY.

    Conservatives need to understand exactly what that means. It means you don’t use their vocabulary. You don’t let their assumptions pass without scrutiny. In the institutions we will require to find places of learning that does not indoctrinate.

    Home school right now is probably the only place that can be assured. I know of no, Secondary school that isn’t infested but then they’re driven the value of a degree to such a point that it is like throwing money down a rathole and could be spent more wisely.

    Until some majority sanity arrives on college campuses, the Right needs to step away from and reunite somewhere else where the comparisons can be made and the education produced by liberals can be compared to the education produced by conservatives.

    Until we stop playing their game, we’ll never over come.

    I think you’re seeing some examples of extreme naivete. It is actually nothing new when it comes to people that age. People who find their own cultures boring tend to fethishize any underdog culture they see as rebellious and therefore cutting edge. You saw an awful lot of that from Brit musicians of the Cream/RStones/Beatles generation who fetishized black blues musicians.

    But that’s where the problem of naivete comes in. Unless you’ve actually lived the life of the underground world of petty larceny and drug dealing, you’re going to tend to swallow whole all the bullshit snow jobs thrown at naive whites by everyone from Ice Cube of NWA to B. Lives Matter without any critical thought or challenge whatsoever. How could you if you’ve never lived that street life?

    The number one thing you need to know about such people is that they are consummate bullshit artists. They are well aware of how their identity, e.g. black leather jackets, tattoos, etc. intimidates naive morons. That’s how naive morons end up getting sold oregano or even mugged or raped when they think biker gangs are cool to hang out with. They are not.

    The world of the street is a world of morons, failures and loose cannons who sell a stereotype that the REAL life is the thug life and that all those 9 to Fivers with a home, steady income and swimming pool are losers. The truth is far different.

    And that myth is why you see hashtags like #JustListen. Basically anything a non-white, gay or woman says is to be taken at face value, because these are people dazzled by identity.

    In the real world, I know of a white guy who supplied the leader of a black band based in an all-black illegal after-hours night club. That white guy would be the only white n that place. For four years, that black guy – with access to his entire culture – didn’t trust it enough to stop going to the white guy. That’s reality. You listen to reality, not skin and sex. If the black guy had just listened, he’d have been shorted, ripped off or even robbed. Why be surprised our white social justice fops are being conned?
