Good news; Kansas passes anti-groomer laws over Gov's veto; thoughts about how politeness is killing us; baffling brain infection breakout; Ukraine tries Putin takeout; legislative updates; and more.
Anyway, the point is that the shaming technique that stops society from pushing back on these ludicrous tactics only works because we have all been terrified into not calling it out, to be polite. The psy-operators deploy the same “bad person” accusations against us, over and over, rinse and repeat, and fight most fiercely at the questioning stage.
For example, if you question the Proxy War, then of course you are a heartless maniac who doesn’t care about poor, downtrodden Ukrainians, just like that fascist Putin. If you wonder whether that’s really a chick or maybe it’s actually a boy, then you are a shameful, intolerant transphobe, a disrespecter, who enjoys mentally torturing defenseless dysphorics. Or, if you question mask science, you are LITERALLY killing grandma, how dare you.
And so on. They’re using our fear of being called ‘impolite’ against us.
But sooner or later, this kind of psychological warfare eventually runs up against an unyielding social or emotional bulwark. For example, straight guys have stubbornly refused to be shamed into dating lipsticked cross-dressers. Just this week, Kansas — joining several other states — outlawed boys playing on the girls’ soccer team. Angry dads (not just moms, finally) are yelling at school boards. Matt Walsh has trolled the psy-operators by repeatedly asking so-called experts the apparently baffling question, “what is a woman?”
Even lots of light-beer drinkers have put a lid on Bud Light.
My sense is the trans movement’s days are, mercifully, numbered. That particular operation is petering out faster than Ukraine’s artillery supply. But I wonder: what if we had immediately taken a strong position against all this gender-bending, and called it out as the mental illness that it clearly is, instead of allowing those irrational ideas to get traction just because we were afraid of hurting somebody’s feelings?
We need a word for being painfully honest, something like blunt, but more proactive. And that word needs to become a rallying cry against whatever these maniacs come up with next.
I’ll just say it: some people’s feelings NEED to get hurt, for their own good, and for our collective sanity. If weak men produced these hard times, then it might be time for some strong men to start calling a cross-dresser a transvestite.
