I know that "intelligent liberal" sounds like an oxymoron, but believe it or not there are some out there. Professor Paglia is a shining example:

She is reasonable.   She is interesting.  Her books although intellectual are enjoyable reads.   Do you know the story about a dinner event that she was a guest as was rush Limbaugh.   They were put at the same table in the hopes they would lock horns to the detriment of Mr Limbaugh.  They got along wonderfully and became friends much to the dismay of leftists.

I know that "intelligent liberal" sounds like an oxymoron, but believe it or not there are some out there. Professor Paglia is a shining example:


Because she’s as confused about the issue as you are?

I guess I’ll say this one more time, even though it never dies any good.  Idiots continue on as if it was never pointed out.  In the US at least, and in most of the rest of the world as well, there are no permanent physical alterations made to children. 

You can believe it or not believe it, but it is a fact.

My daughter was so severely stressed about her body, that we would have gotten her surgery at age 16 if we could, because she had been living with the condition since at least age 7 and was clearly not going to change.  But there is no surgeon, at least no reputable surgeon, in the country who will do it before age 18.  So my daughter had a social life in high school, but was restricted from having a dating life.

In addition, even for adults, most doctors will not surgically alter adults until they’ve undergone a lengthy protocol to help ensure it is right for them.  That is the standard of care that every responsible doc follows.

I do, however, think there is some truth in the idea that you’re not allowed to question.  Part of that is a reaction to the bigotry that trans people are subjected to, but part of it is just the enforcement of politeness on the clueless, the bigots, and those who are simply mean.  To question the validity of transgenderism in general is akin to questioning whether or not blacks are actually fully human.  Do so in polite society, and you will rightly get some strong reactions.

--I remember Rush telling that story (must have been at least 20 years ago). He mentioned that after dinner he was about to light up a cigar and he offered her one. She graciously accepted and the after-dinner conversation went very well.

Mothers in shock as daughters come home from college with mustaches, breasts removed

JENNIFER KABBANY
JANUARY 10, 2019

‘She went from hating white males to now wanting to become one’

For years, college officials have told students gender is a choice. They’ve pressured all students to announce their preferred pronouns on name tags and in emails as gender fluidity is normalized. They’ve celebrated students who choose to transition as brave warriors. They’ve provided the medical tools necessary for students to “transition.”

In fact, a recent column in The Wall Street Journal reports that “health plans at 86 colleges—including those of nearly every Ivy League school—cover not only cross-sex hormones but surgery as well.”

The piece featured the phenomenon of “rapid onset gender dysphoria,” described as overwhelmingly afflicting girls who then receive the full support of the medical community.

Many of these cases can be traced to colleges that are just as affirming.

“I am writing to you on behalf of parents who have lost their kids at college to the transgender craze,” one mother, Katherine Cave, recently told The College Fix.

“Many liberal colleges have significant percentages of students suddenly identifying as transgender. And as you may know, all it takes is a simple visit to an informed consent clinic where girls get testosterone injections to help them look like males.”

Cave is among a support-group of mothers who have found each other through the website 4thWaveNow, a left-of-center online community concerned about rapid-onset gender dysphoria and related issues.

Among the issues it covers, 4thWaveNow chronicles the same trend The Wall Street Journal recently reported on as well: “When Your Daughter Defies Biology.”

It led with an anecdote: “The young woman went off to college—which began, as it often does these days, with an invitation to state her name, sexual orientation and ‘pronouns.’ When her anxiety flared during her first semester, she and several of her friends decided their angst had a fashionable cause: ‘gender dysphoria.’ Within a year, the lawyer’s daughter had begun a course of testosterone. Her real drug—the one that hooked her—was the promise of a new identity. A shaved head, boys’ clothes and a new name formed the baptismal waters of a female-to-male rebirth.”

Rapid-onset gender dysphoria, which has been described as a “contagion,” has caught up with more and more mothers who are shocked when their formerly feminine daughters suddenly come from home college with mustaches, acne, different demeanors — even their breasts removed.

Cave said these examples are all too common. She reached out to other moms who have found support, advice and information on 4thWaveNow, and asked them to share their experiences with The College Fix.

In emails to The College Fix, several moms described their ordeals. They asked that their full names and the colleges be concealed to protect their daughters’ (sons?) identities.

Pam’s story
Our daughter went off to the college of her dreams. She seemed to do well her first year away. During her second year at college, she experienced a mental health breakdown. We received sketchy details of her struggles from her and a couple of her friends. There was no outreach from her college—due to privacy concerns.

Following much pleading on our part, she came home for a visit. We were met with a very different visage upon picking her up at the airport. Her face was covered in acne, she sprouted an obvious mustache, her entire appearance was disheveled.

After allowing her to settle in at home, we expressed concern about her appearance and demeanor. This was met with hostility. Her voice was somewhat deeper, I might note here. She seemed very disturbed—not at all her old self.

What was she like before this? No, not a tomboy as a child. She was an ambitious student, an animal lover, she loved to spend time in the kitchen baking. As for gender, she was typical (whatever that means). For her high school prom, she had her hair and makeup professionally styled. She wore an elegant gown which revealed ample cleavage. As for her friend group in high school, she aligned herself with social activists.

While our daughter was visiting, we asked her what was wrong. I inquired about the acne and mustache—that is not natural, I said. She insisted that she had always had a mustache. Not true.

Before we knew what had hit us, she returned to her college. We discovered that she had obtained testosterone in the student clinic. And, she refused all contact with her family.

Her college was complicit in all of this.

Emma’s story
Our daughter, who is 19, went off the college last year. Over the next few months, her look began to change toward more masculine, and we made a guess she may be experimenting with sexuality. Little did we know, there was a much bigger bomb she was about to drop. It turned out that during her freshman year, she “socially transitioned’ (going by a boy name and “he” pronouns) and she announced she is ready to start counseling to get hormones followed by top surgery. We are working very hard to hold off the hormones, putting tuition on the line.

Our daughter fits the typical description of a young woman affected by this craze. Very bright, extreme social justice warrior, highly creative, socially awkward/ADHD/Asperger spectrum, OCD/obsessive interests. Never fit in with peers, preferred company of other non-neuro-typical girls and boys, whom she found a lot easier to get along with. While she was not a super girly-girl, she had never any masculine interests (not one) and has all the stereotypical feminine interests and traits (cooking, knitting, babysitting little kids, etc). She went from being a feminist / pro women’s rights to hating white males to now wanting to become one and wanting to chemically and surgically mutilate her body.

'She went from ... hating white males to now wanting to become one and wanting to chemically and surgically mutilate her body.'

And the professionals have no advice other than to support her in making her transition. And of course this is insanity. It makes no sense-other than it started after a close friend transitioned at the end of high school, and she entered college and began to hang out in the dedicated “queer dorm.”

Dorothy’s story
My daughter had met a transperson (female to male, one year younger) online when she was about 14 on the social media site DevientArt. By 16, my daughter declared that she was trans. I didn’t allow her to go on testosterone, change her name or have any surgeries. As soon as she turned 18, she officially changed her name and by the end of her first year in college she was able to get onto testosterone and have both of her healthy breasts removed. It’s very tragic. If she continues to take the testosterone, after some years her internal female organs will deteriorate to a point that they, too, will have to be surgically removed.

Kathy’s story
I have been asked to write and tell you a disturbing story about my own daughter at college. She left for college in the fall of 2016 as a National Merit Scholar, all AP classes, involved in countless activities including bands, orchestra, theater, dance, literary magazine editor, starting women’s studies club, part time job …. She honestly was on top of the world with so much potential. She also happened to be gender conforming. She had a significant merit scholarship at a well respected east coast university in a large city.

Sometime the second semester sophomore year things went horribly wrong. Perhaps there was some build up but since she went away to college we did not notice anything. She called us in a deep voice stating she was transgender and had changed her name. She was unable to even think clearly around this issue and was obviously horribly confused. Within a week she completely severed ties in an email to us. No one in her immediate or extended family can believe what has happened. Within a year she had a double mastectomy. Our family is absolutely devastated by all of this. I wish I could share details (what college in particular) but as you are aware we have to be careful. I also wish none of this were true.

Mornac,
What the hell has happened to our
American society ?
--It's celebrating diversity and inclusiveness, hook. The problem for professed Catholics like myself, is that their diversity and inclusiveness stops at our Church's door. The same goes for other sects Christians and some sects of Jews. We're the only ones who risk ending up in jail for holding our beliefs (Mind you, the same beliefs we've held for centuries). Oddly, pagans and miscreant Muslims can pretty much say or do any offensive thing they want and be protected by the heathen liberals.

Construction workers arrested, fined, fired for laughing at men dressed as women

May 24, 2019

May 24, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – While the transgender ideology may have swept the upper echelons of society within a mere half-decade, most ordinary men and women are still not buying into its premises. As I noted in this space last year, the transgender ideology is being imposed from the top-down, and the backlash to elitist demands that we believe in the fantasy of so-called “pregnant men” and “female penises” is growing, especially in the ranks of feminists and other unlikely allies. I’ve often said that one easy way to prove that most people have not yet managed to swallow the absurdities of transgenderism is a simple litmus test: Go onto any construction site and begin asking the workers there if they think that men can get pregnant. It is wildly unlikely that you will find a single one.

In February, the Edinburgh News reported a story that seems to confirm my hunch. Bizarrely, a construction worker named Graham Spiers was actually arrested and given an enormous fine for allegedly “pointing and laughing” at a biological male attempting to present as a woman. Because Spiers was rude to a transgender person, he was chewed out both in court and by law enforcement and informed that his children should be ashamed of him. Not only was Spiers required to believe that the biological male that walked past him and his buddies was a female, he was also required not to snicker. Society is moving fast, and Neanderthals like Spiers need to get in line – or else.

A similar story cropped up again this week, this time in Indianapolis. A biological male – dutifully described by the media as a “transgender woman” – alleged that “she was harassed by a construction worker…while waiting for the bus. Violet Salas, 36, said the worker mocked her by holding a plastic drop cloth around his waist and ‘parading’ in front of her with a makeshift skirt. The incident made her feel insulted and threatened on her own street, Salas told News 8 in an exclusive interview. ‘I just want to feel safe,’ she said. ‘One day someone’s teasing you. What’s it going to take for them to be attacking you next?’”

This story – which is apparently a big “exclusive” these days – is a joke. The difference between “teasing” (as rude as it might be) and “attacking” is obvious, especially in legal terms. This is simply an attempt by both the complainant and the media to pretend that a construction worker cracking up at the sight of a very male-looking dude in a skirt (seriously, just watch the interview – this guy is fooling nobody) is somehow a hate crime, verging on violence. In reality, it is just a trans activist making use of the elitists in the media to crack down on some average guy who laughed when he noticed that the Emperor is wearing no clothes. Everyone has to play along, you see, or the ruse fails.

Of course, the corporations have to play along now, too, for fear of being accused of encouraging a “climate of transphobia” or some such nonsense: “A spokesperson for Rieth-Riley Construction, the unidentified worker's employer, said they were aware of the allegations and investigating Salas' complaint. ‘We have talked to the worker in question,’ area manager David Dankert told News 8. ‘We take this matter very seriously.’” What allegation? That a construction worker wasn’t sufficiently sensitive to the rules of the transgender movement, which now require him to solemnly believe that a biological man dressed as a woman is a woman? Of course, the company had to play along, too, or the media simply would have shifted the bullseye.

The media was so intent on getting the construction worker with the wrong sense of humor punished that they pushed representatives of Rieth-Riley Construction to say if he would be rebuked, but noted disapprovingly that they were “unable to confirm…if the workers would face disciplinary action” at first. The plural comes from a subsequent discovery that “three other workers at the…construction site witnessed the incident and laughed at their colleague’s ‘derogatory’ antics.” Such laughter, it goes without saying, is now forbidden. Again: Play along, or else. Salas, however, graciously said he would simply accept an apology. A follow-up to the news story noted that the worker had been fired in a statement released by IndyGo, the municipal corporation that had contracted Rieth-Riley:

IndyGo staff were appalled to learn of the incident involving this individual's outward display of intolerance. We have been informed that Rieth Riley's management has removed the worker from the Red Line project, and will conduct sensitivity training immediately. Rieth- Riley leadership will meet directly with Ms. Salas.

IndyGo staff have reached out directly to Violet to confirm that the situation has been sufficiently addressed.

These actions of a single individual on a Red Line work site do not match the dignity and respect that IndyGo believes each individual deserves.

We stand with Violet, and we commend the response from Rieth-Riley.

So there you have it. A construction worker teases a biological man dressed as a woman, the transgender person calls on the media to investigate, the media calls the construction company to demand disciplinary action, virtue-signalling municipal politicians unused to people caring what they have to say virtue-signal furiously, and the construction worker gets fired. He laughed, so he lost his job. Justice is done, and so the trans activist and the reporters and the politicians can go home happy, while the construction worker goes home to file for unemployment or hunt for a new job. It could have been worse, after all: They could have published his name and ruined his life.

This is why it is so essential to track the insidious cultural changes being perpetrated from the top-down: Because the transgender activists and their allies are not satisfied with being able to do whatever they want. They want to force you to agree with it, too. They want you to somberly agree that a biological man is a woman if he says so, and that a biological woman is a man if she says so. And if you laugh, there will be consequences. You could be arrested or fined in the United Kingdom, and in the United States you might be luckier. You might just lose your job.
