‘The Enormity of the Crime’

One of the things I’ve always understood about what is now generally called “the LGBTQ movement” (once known more simply as “gay rights”) was that it really wasn’t about fighting oppression, and that the claims of victimhood involved were largely fictitious. And I knew this because I actually knew gay people, none of whom were […]

The Internet Is Making Kids Crazy

Saturday was Detrans Awareness Day, calling attention to cases of people who formerly identified as transgender before “detransitioning” and re-identifying with their biological sex. Ed Driscoll at Instapundit called attention to the case of Helena Kerschner, now 23, who began testosterone injections at age 18 and continued for more than a year before the mental […]

Exposing Gender, Inc.

Through the magic of the YouTube algorithm, last night I came across feminist Isabella Malbin’s “Whose Body Is It?” channel. As I’ve been chronicling since 2014, radical feminists are waging war against what can fairly be described as the Transgender-Industrial Complex. Of course my readers know me as a staunch opponent of feminism, per se […]

‘Bioessentialist Concepts of Gender’

My journalistic skepticism kicked in when I saw this tweet screencapped by Ace. Surely, this can’t be real? But then I checked, and indeed this is a real tweet by a real person — well, a Canadian, anyway. I’ve never considered Canadians fully human, but let’s not digress . . . Here is the full […]

More Bisexual Tumblrina Craziness (and Other Random Insanity Updates)

The phrase “crazy Tumblrina” is wrong, because it’s redundant. No sane person is on Tumblr, and if you add bisexual to the descriptor (i.e., “crazy bisexual Tumblrina”), you’ve just wasted two words, because basically everyone on Tumblr is bisexual, or at least somewhere on the LGBTQ spectrum. But mostly, yeah, they’re bisexual. Let us parse […]

British Court Rules It’s OK to Call ‘Stephanie Hayden’ a ‘Pig in a Wig’

Not a woman: Anthony Halliday (left) as ‘Stephanie Hayden’ (right). Last year I described this menace to society: Anthony Halliday changed his name to “Stephanie Hayden” and became a transgender activist in England who “regularly threatens gender identity disbelievers with civil or criminal lawsuits, or attempts to have them ousted from their careers.” Now a British […]

Warning: You Can Never Unsee This

Usually, I celebrate “Pride” Month by ignoring it. One of our greatest liberties as Americans is the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, i.e., “you have the right to remain silent.” In an age of militant “social justice” activism, you can engage in a sort of protest simply by keeping your mouth shut, resisting the temptation […]

Parenting Against ‘The Village’

Many readers will recall that in 1996 Hillary Clinton published a book — I won’t say she wrote it — called It Takes a Village, the title of which was supposedly inspired by an African proverb. Whether or not this actually is a proverb among Africans, or whether it was merely attributed to them to […]
