The Compulsory Approval Doctrine: Sliding Down the Slippery Slope

Posted on | January 12, 2019 | No Comments

 

Pete Da Tech Guy this week noticed that Ford Motor Company fired a contractor at one of its Michigan plants for posting an online comment critical of transgender ideology. The contractor said he “was told to pack up my belongings immediately, to leave my badge and computer, then I was walked out of the building like a criminal,” Tyler O’Neill reported at PJMedia, because of an “intolerant” comment which, not coincidentally, was “a paraphrased version of a statement … from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops [USCCB].” Evidently, Catholics cannot express their religious beliefs if they work at Ford, and this reflects what in March 2015 I called the Compulsory Approval Doctrine:

This new dispensation . . . has the consequence of abolishing religious liberty. “Marriage equality” requires universal recognition of same-sex unions. Woe be unto the baker who, for religious reasons, refuses to provide a cake or the florist who refuses to provide flowers for a gay wedding.

Since the Supreme Court’s 2015 Obergefell decision, this doctrine has been used by advocates of transgenderism to bully into silence anyone who disagrees with their bizarre ideology. While almost no one wishes to interfere in the private lives of adults, the Compulsory Approval Doctrine has the effect of prohibiting the expression of any opinion that the most fanatical LGBTQ zealot might consider “offensive.” And, it would appear, there is no feasible limit to what they will do to promote their agenda:

On Monday, 10-year-old Canadian boy Nemis Quinn Mélançon-Golden was featured in a troubling Huck Magazine piece highlighting the life of a so-called “child drag queen.”
Young Nemis, whose drag name is “Queen Lactacia,” was shot by photographer Jonathan Frederick Turton for the spread. In one of the shots that did not make the magazine, Nemis, in full drag makeup and a black dress, is posing for a photo with the Season 7 winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Violet Chachki. In the shocking photo, Violet is wearing nothing but a pair of heels and a small piece of fabric covering his genitals . . . .
In the jarring Huck Magazine piece — which ironically bashes Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro for calling out parents for over-sexualizing their “drag kids” — Nemis’ mother, Jessica Melancon, conceded that drag has a sexual component and is unapologetic about her young son wearing sexually suggestive clothing if it “makes him feel beautiful” . . .
In 2017, Nemis appeared on stage with popular drag queen Bianca Del Rio at a drag show his mother brought him to. The clip of the two on stage together, wherein the drag queen repeatedly uses the word “b****” and drops an “f”-bomb, quickly went viral.
“That video happened and everyone went crazy,” Jessica recalled. “But we knew from the get-go we never wanted to lose control, or lose sight of it being fun for Nemis.”
According to Jessica, drag is “how Nemis chooses to express himself. He’s just a kid playing.” . . .
Nemis also appears to already be an LGBT advocate. “Choose Love. Be Proud. Smash the Patriarchy and be kind to one another, always! #pride #lovenothate#loveislove #nonbinary #thefutureisfluid,” reads a post on the boy’s Instagram account, which is said to be run by his mother.

You can read the rest at Daily Wire. It seems obvious that the child’s mother is engaged in a Munchausen-by-proxy manipulation of her son, encouraging his transvestite activity to gain attention for herself, but no one is allowed to say so, because that would be intolerant.
