Radical Madness: @ZJemptv and the Transgender War Against Women

Posted on | June 13, 2016 | 30 Comments


Sitting on my shelf, amid scores of radical feminist books I’ve gathered over the past two years, is Women’s Rites, Women’s Mysteries: Creating Ritual in the Dianic Wiccan Tradition by Ruth Barrett, a neopagan high priestess initiated by Z. Budapest, the founder of feminist witchcraft. Ruth Barrett divorced her husband and became a lesbian, so that she is the epitome of a famous anti-feminist quote by Pat Robertson.

There has been a strange battle fought within feminism in recent years between radical feminists and transgender activists, and Ruth Barrett has now become a target of the implacable hatred for which the transgender movement is rapidly becoming notorious. Barrett has announced plans to publish an anthology entitled Female Erasure: What You Need To Know About Gender Politics’ War On Women, the Female Sex and Human Rights, with an introduction by Germaine Greer. This collection of 46 essays includes a lot of anti-Christian feminism of the kind that I consider pure satanic evil (e.g., Monika Sjöö and Barbara Mor), however, neither I nor any other right-wing Christian is trying to prevent publication of this book. Guess who is? Transgender activists like Zinnia Jones.

Gallus Mag at the radical feminist site Gender Trender reports:

Less than 48 hours since the announcement of the upcoming Female Erasure anthology and the anti-women, anti-lesbian, anti-speech activists are already swarming with efforts to stop its publication. . . .
Needless to say, the individuals who are invested in forcibly imposing “gender” on women and girls wish to censor female speech about the worldwide, violent, reproductive sex-based oppression of women and girls which transcends all cultures and eras. . . .
Anti-feminist and anti-gay activists — mainly of the transgender variety — are already waging a campaign of harassment against the editor, the contributors, and the fundraising website being used to crowdfund the project.

Is there anyone who is not transgender who is “waging a campaign of harassment” against so-called “TERFs” (trans-exclusive radical feminists)? Not to my knowledge. My preferred “harassment” toward feminists is to quote them, and how am I to quote the crazy things feminists say, if they are not allowed to publish? My warnings about the consequences of feminism (see “Jacobins, Bolsheviks and Feminists”) are based on in-depth research, and I dare yet hope that some of these fools will see the errors of their folly. How can truth contend with error, however, if we are denied the freedom to speak?

Why do transgender activists fear the truth? Why do they try to shut down criticism of their agenda? What are they trying to hide?

Heather McNamara, “Miss Robo” and Zinnia Jones.

You may recall that Zinnia Jones is the partner of Heather McNamara, a self-described “feminist, marxist, queer theorist, lesbian” who in October 2015 deliberately humiliated her son by forcing him to write an essay about “misogyny.” That anyone could be so cruel to their own child is shocking, and we should not be surprised that Zinnia Jones is supporting the war against Ruth Barrett’s book.

Ask yourself: Why do transgender activists care so much about a book by a lesbian feminist witch that they would seek to prevent its publication? Why is it so important to Zinnia Jones to prevent feminists from criticizing the transgender agenda? Why would Zinnia Jones and other transgender activists erupt with a barrage of sexualized slurs against me when I called them out about their efforts to suppress free speech?

“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

My advice to feminists is to remember the fate of Trotsky. And you should probably also read The Road to Serfdom, especially Chapter 10.

    “Shared hatred of trans people.”

    She’s projecting. Only the left know how to hate. While over on the right we may dislike behaviors and life choices and advocate against some particularly harmful practices, hate never enters into it.

    Zinnia Jones is a species of wickedness that is seldom encountered outside prison walls.

    About the fate of Trotzky: do the people in the village cared when the magic piper carried all children off a Cliff? It is a shame that we have closed mental asylums.

    Hatred involved an emotional investment. The apathy until it touches some of us is unknown to many of them.

    While I can certainly agree with the TERFs philosophically, i.e. that a female is a female and a male is a male, I can also marvel at how oblivious they are to the facts. Their battle with the trans-community was a perfectly foreseeable outcome of their own attempts to destroy the social institutions which formed the backbone of civilization, regardless of how those institutions originated. Once you create a reality where everything is “socially constructed” for purposes of exerting power and control over others, you shouldn’t be surprised when people begin to use that theory offensively in ways of which you do not approve. To borrow a catchphrase from Glenn Reynolds and the original Ghostbusters, they have chosen the form of their own “destructer.”

    What the left read history? Trotsky….. isn’t that what horses do? The day any of those self-absorbed groups get over themselves isn’t coming any time soon. They get too much mileage out of pushing their agenda to satisify their spotlight grabbing addiction.

    What IS it with the mind set of SOME folks that even believe that
    “Banning publication” of criticism is a viable jumping off point ?
    I blame Michael Mann, and Al Gore.
    see: “Banned in Boston”, Samizdat, Streisand Effect.
    Can the APA SandD version ONE be reprinted, or is that “illegal”

    Where does this insistence on everybody hating everyone else? Truly, are we all walking around seething and about to explode like defective pressure cookers? Because the world turns right on, and most of us are so busy that we don’t even think about transgenders at all.

    These people need to spend time doing something productive.

    “Great. Let them eat each other.”

    You know, Steve, this was my reaction in January 2014 when I first began writing about the conflict between trannies and radical feminists. However, as I looked further into the dispute, I began to see that as crazy as the radical feminists may be, they are not always wrong. And one of the things they have right is this: “Woman” describes a biological condition, a matter of scientific fact, and the transgender activists are trying to obscure this.

    So, while I have no sympathy for lesbian witches like Ruth Barrett, there comes a point at which we have to decide between truth and error, and the irony here is not lost on me. By rather strange turns, we have arrived at a situation where those who believe in scientific fact must defend the lesbian witch.

    “Their battle with the trans-community was a perfectly foreseeable outcome of their own attempts to destroy the social institutions which formed the backbone of civilization . . .”

    Indeed, radical feminists have been hoisted by their own petard, but this does not change the significance of the fact that, in this conflict, it is radical feminists who are on the side of science.

    There will be time enough to settle other quarrels once we have exposed to public scrutiny the issues at stake in the transgender agenda. Let us not worry now about what we will do after this battle is won, but consider instead what results would ensue were we to lose this battle.

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    To deny the truth of a proposition solely because of the speaker’s identity is the classic ad hominem fallacy.

    It is quite rare that any sort of advocate will ever admit that something they advocated early on is the first step on the journey they should have been able to see the end of. The proprietor at Cdr. Salamander has this problem with PC in the Navy and the ending of the WAVEs. It matters not that his opponents are those who advocated for it in the first place.

    No one is so blind as he who will not see.

    You and I agree that there is such thing as objective truth. Certain wavelengths of light define specific colors. The acceleration of a body in Earth’s gravity is 33 fps squared. One’s biology defines one’s sex.

    It is progressives – all of them – who pretend that truth is relative. Now some of them are discovering there are perhaps some truths they prefer to retain. Just as some gays are coming to the uncomfortable conclusion that there’s a difference between Christian bakers and Muslim ISIS sympathizers.

    All I have to say is “Welcome to reality. Try to learn how it works, because it doesn’t care how you feel.”

    The old saying “I disagree completely with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it” has gone in our lifetimes from a liberal principle to a conservative one.

    To simply disagree is to hate, in their vocabulary. It’s the redefinition of common words that is so maddening with these people.

    What’s also funny (to me, anyway) is that the kiwis themselves are pathological by their own admission, and yet they call out the rabidly psychotic for lulz. Gotta give ’em props for helpful research, too.

    This is a battle that has to happen. And it needs to happen among feminists. I’m glad to see it. And He-Zinnia better be careful: Ruth Barrett has been practicing a long time.
