The wave of gender self-assignation continues unabated, that is, continues in countries that aren’t, at this moment, fighting back. And what are they fighting against? The most ardent followers of gender ID, nearly all young or middle aged men, would have us believe they are the most vulnerable group on the planet. Persecuted beyond any other group. Which isn’t true. Women are the most persecuted group on the planet, to such a degree, that any other from of persecution is a distant second, and they have been persecuted since we as a species learned to stand up on our hind legs. To protest on behalf of women is to be immediately subjected to a tsunami of vitriol, and physical and legal threats from those in the gender ID movement, who, like any autocratic group in human history, seek to silence those that disagree with them. Why? Because they have no biological or physiological evidence to backup their self determination. Much like religion, they encourage folk to believe without evidence.
An example. As recently as this week on Twitter, along with many other weeks and months, we are expected to believe men have a cervix. As women and men who know their own bodies will know, this is a physiological impossibility, not only for our species, but damn near every other species on the planet. Females have a cervix, males do not. Females menstruate, males do not. Females have children, males do not. Outside of the occasional case in the animal kingdom, all of these FACTS are true. And it’s these truths that drive the hatred, and the thrust to silence dissenting voices, with Scotland currently being the poster child for making it illegal to present these physiological facts as evidence. Young men are in the majority of the group seeking to legally silence dissent against their philosophy. And philosophy is all it is. More akin to the behaviour of a cult that says “Black is White, and you will accept this, OUR truth, no matter if it’s true or not.”
We are in a battle of who’s right or wrong. A battle for supremacy of ideology over biology. A new, she/he/it made tradition, over science. We are fighting what seems like a new battle where it’s really the same old battle of misogyny, where women, and girls are under threat from an ideology that not only seeks to diminish them as people, but remove any safe spaces they may have left. Far from accepting a third safe space, alongside female and male, the gender ID ideological cult has two missions. To diminish women, and remove the safety net they have, which is already precarious, and to sexualize children, by, in effect, removing their childhood, and the journey of maturation in adulthood, with chemical and surgical butchery of children’s bodies, with puberty blockers, and removal of breasts and other body parts. Just think about that for a moment. There is profit in convincing your daughters and sisters to agree to be mutilated for the pleasure of those who seek to satisfy their sexual cravings and paedophilial urge for child shaped bodies.
Why do I associate this with gender ID? Social Evolution. The normalization of new behaviour that crosses the current lines we have that protect children from those who would damage them physically, mentally and emotionally to satisfy a sexual craving. We already read of those who have self-ID’d as women, have entered women’s spaces, and exposed themselves to female children, then threatened to touch them, just to get a reaction, at least for the moment. Ask any woman who has been harrassed by men where this leads. “I was just kidding.” “I didn’t really mean to frighten you.” “It’s just a game, where’s your sense of humour.” “Maybe we could go a little further next time.” “Now that we’ve got to know each other……” These and a myriad of other comments, and worse, physical intrusions and sexual abuse are the lot of a large percentage of women in our society. It’s an unpleasant truth that hasn’t got better, no matter how many predominately male politicians tell you it has. Women are under siege, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And now the gender self-ID cultists have arrived, there’s even more for women to fear and distrust, to defend against, and to recover from.
The current gender self ID movement is predicated on the assumption that the general public just don’t care enough about these things to immediately react and stop this terrible rot before the stench of horror at what’s happening to their own children, or sisters, wives, girlfriends goads them into action. It’s not enough that men and women stand outside female safe spaces, and get arrested for preventing a man pretending to be a woman from entering and emotionally or physically harming those we’re supposed to protect as a society.
As a man who has defended women all his life, often being derided for doing so, I can tell you bluntly and truthfully, this sucks. It really fucking sucks.
So how can start to solve this?
We can rise up, protest in our millions, march every day until the lawmakers back off, and restore women’s rights and safe spaces, for fear of losing their fat salaries and even fatter pensions and expense accounts. That’ll partially work. At least for the moment. The problem using only this method is the corporations selling the puberty blockers, and other pharmaceuticals designed to inhibit the natural evolution of bodies from childhood into adulthood will lose money, but only temporarily. They’ll continues to lobby their pet politicians and sneak new laws in, or opaque exceptions to current laws, until once again they’re making new and increased profits from the misery of the public. And then there’s the gender doctors and medical staff, who push to mutilate children, forcing them to have surgery under the illusion that mutilation will fix their gender dysphoria, depression, acne, or other feelings of inadequacy about themselves and their bodies.
We could install a third space, called Open, that all folk can use, including those who simply self-ID as female or male, that goes alongside Female and Male safe spaces. This one’s a no brainer, except it’ll cost a bit of money, and it’s fairly certain local and state governments might hesitate at the idea of protecting female safe spaces, by building new open spaces, because the bulk of local and state government politicians are men, and the bulk of them just don’t seem to give a shit how safe or unsafe women feel. I wonder how many of them have asked their own female loved ones who’ve endured a situation just what they think.
So what else can we do? It’s quite simple.
Start teaching our kids, male and female to respect one another, particularly young boys. Start the wave of anti-mysogination, and anti-misandrination in every aspect of our lives from infancy onwards. Gender self-ID is a symptom of a social deficiency, not a social evolution. Removing female rights is not evolving, it’s the opposite. Men dressed up and made up as women, exposing themselves in women’s spaces to elicit a reaction is not an expressing of freedom, it’s stalking and indecent exposure. Let’s call it what it is, and was, before the gender ID cult tried to legitimize that behaviour, as an “expression of their rights.” That’s just horseshit being sold as freedom. Push for laws that prevent corporations, organizations, and individuals from approaching our children in schools and public spaces and pressing sexualized leaflets and propaganda on them, or seeking to persuade them to keep secrets from their parents in the pursuit of normalizing the sexualization of our young.
Starting boys out with a mindset that respects and supports the equality of females and their rights will have a much longer positive effect on our society and the safety of women and girls, than just legislation that is all too often sidestepped in often mysoginistic courts as some sort of “mischief” with a slap on the wrist and don’t do it again. The hormonal imbalances of puberty are oft said to the cause of abusive behaviour. Maybe to a small degree, but those youngsters who have been fortunate enough to be raised in homes and communities where mistreatment including sexual assault and abuse of anybody is unacceptable, and is accepted as being unacceptable, and who don’t commit these crimes, seem to have it figured out. Where is the awareness courses in our kindergartens and schools that give boys and girls enough of the right start to set a different emotional, physiological, and socially responsible direction in their lives? Where is the parental guidance to reinforces that start? Or the public awareness campaigns that seek to inform everyone of the consequences to individuals in our communities that result from any form of personal intrusion that has sexual aggression, bullying and intimidation of some sort at its base? When do we start to teach young boys in particular that it’s more than ok to be empathic and compassionate throughout their lives? When will we rid our kids of the terrible drive to cruelty that takes a child from caring for animals when they’re infants, to brutalizing the vulnerable in our society when they’re older?
Our society will gain the greatest benefit from starting from scratch, at infancy, to nurture compassion, empathy, and respect, and continuing that journey of support into adulthood. It’s from that position and mutual social acknowledgement, that we will be able to start taking apart the worst excesses of abuse against folk in our society. As this perspective gains strength in numbers, and the resulting change in behaviour, so we will be able to more definitively, and promptly, see off the cultists, who have no one’s interest but their own, at heart.
