An Infinite Rainbow of Oppression

Posted on | February 18, 2015 | 39 Comments

Sarah Deragon (@identityproj) is a feminist and a lesbian, but I repeat myself. Tuesday, I posted a series of “Queer Feminism” headlines from to illustrate the extent to which the feminist movement has become obsessed with perverse sexuality. One of the headlines I included was this:

Powerful Photos Fearlessly Redefine
What It Means to Be LGBTQIA+

Because I was just linking headlines, I didn’t click to see the “Powerful Photos” until after I’d posted the article and commenters began pointing out what a weird series of photographs Sarah Deragon (who labels herself “Queer Femme”) had compiled there. A few of the labels:

“Fat Fierce Queer Femme”
“Queer Femme Jock”
“Trans Femme Genderqueer”
“Plus Sized Polyamorous Pansexual”
“Old School Dyke Leather Butch”
“Fat Queer Indigenous Femme”
“Poly Fag Queermo”
“Sassy Switch Femmeboi”
“Fierce Queer Xicana Femme”
“Queer Femme Psychic”

Go take a look at this collection of weirdness, which inspires the question, Is “Carnival Sideshow Freak” a gender identity yet?

This is “Everyday Feminism” in 2015. Welcome to the Obama Age, where “normal” is the problem and “queer”  is the solution.

    I’m homophobic against poly fag queermos and I want to patriarchically oppress sassy switch femmebois. But I actually have no beef with fierce queer xicana femmes. Some of my best friends are fierce queer xicana femmes.

    See. I told you in the last post, I wasn’t going to click those headlines. Rather, I relied upon you to do it. You did. I don’t have to, and there’s nothing you can do to make me.

    You’re welcome.

    Is “Carnival Sideshow Freak” a gender identity yet? I guess this means that the LGBTQIA+ crowd may define Oedipal Troll as a gender identity. Elkridge may consider gendercide at point.

    That is the direction the English language will take in about 40 years if the progressives have their way…

    The Old Testament was written by people who had lived through the madness of Sodom and Gomorrah, child sacrifice, etc.

    The New Testament was written by people who had lived through the perversion of Rome.

    They knew: When you open the door to one weirdness, they all come barging in (in sort of an unfunny version of the Marx Brothers’ crowded stateroom scene). But we’re, of course, told that they were just “afraid of sexuality,” due to “superstition.” No. They saw the lunacy firsthand.

    I am not afraid of their sex lives (most of them are probably not having much sex at all and what they are engaging in is probably pretty boring and pathetic). I am afraid of their twisted politics and what comes with it and how it impacts me.

    Way O/T, so don’t bother replying. Just an interesting article to which TOM fans can relate:

    Reminds me of Stacy’s columns on the Washington Times and other journalistic ventures.

    Just wait, “otherkin” is coming. Where people identify as part animal of some kind…

    I guess a lot of these people did not have a strong father. Even after mine died, I still “seek” his advice, the best of which is many times as simple as “don’t be an idiot”

    You hand in your ticket
    And you go watch the geek
    Who immediately walks up to you
    When he hears you speak
    And says, “How does it feel
    To be such a freak?”
    And you say, “Impossible”
    As he hands you a bone

    They’re a tiny minority. The only reason we hear so much about them is they are currently useful to the left.

    Which box do you check for “Barking batshit nuts?”

    Or is that implied with any or all of them?

    See, I don’t care if somebody is running off the rails deranged so long as they pose no threat. What I object to is their insistence that I pretend to hear the voices in their heads, much less agree with them.

    No. You are not a sparkly rainbow flying giraffe. Now stop bothering me or I’ll shoot.
