Kevin Williamson has a sprightly article up this morning titled Delusions of Gender. I was a bit surprised because Williamson often lets his libertarian side give the benefit of the doubt to some of these nuts and flakes.
Not this time. Kevin tears the transgendered crowd a new one (as if they needed one). I would even say that this is a manly article by him as he puts common sense and good judgment above the usual sloppy “feelings” or mindless “respect” that so infect people’s attitudes these days, often of conservative as well.
Again, not this time. Kevin is giving no quarter to the nuts-and-flakes of the “I feel like a woman in a man’s body” crowd. He suggests that we call this what it is: mental illness. I couldn’t agree more, although I hold out the theoretical possibility that developmental issues during the embryonic state could have played a trick on some people and shot their brains full of female hormones even though they have the Y chromosome of a male.
That said, this “gender” BS has always been a social or cultural phenomenon for the most part, not a biological one. It’s all ultimately wrapped up in the Utopian/wuss vision which states that everyone is a victim and that it is cruel to just tell people “deal with it.” We’re all now conceived to be such fragile and precious snowflakes that the very idea of bucking up and dealing with one’s inadequacies is unheard of. It may be true that “We’re now all socialists” as some proclaim. But without a doubt it is true that “We all are now girly-men.”
A splendid accompaniment to Kevin’s article is the one by Charles Cooke: The Subtlest Racism. Charles has fun looking at the nuts and flakes who invent instances of racism or sexism out of thin air when they can’t find any in real life.
His whole article struck me as supporting the idea of Michael Savage that liberalism is a mental disorder. Savage says a lot of intentionally outrageous things (he is, to my mind, somewhat of the P.T. Barnum of commentators), but I think he’s right about that.
Picture all these truly pathetic yutes (and more than a few adults) who gain their life’s meaning from savaging America. Like the spoiled lunatics that they are, they gain for themselves the superficial glow of sainthood by trashing others, even if they have to make up the trash.
At some point I hope businesses all bond together and simply refuse to hire these college-age nitwits, although Obama and his statist policies are doing a fine job of that already.
You see from these liberal nitwits that the price you pay for Utopia is first and foremost self-respect. These people are pathetic. If only more people would get in their face (as Cooke has) and tell them so. • (2879 views)
