The Cult of Caitlyn confirms that there is nothing progressive in transgender politics

“The photo is indeed iconic. And not just in the shallow celeb meaning of that word. It’s iconic in the traditional sense, too, in that it’s being venerated as an actual icon, a devotional image of an apparently holy human. It’s an image we’re all expected to bow down to, whose essential truth we must imbibe; an image you question or ridicule at your peril, with those who refuse to genuflect before it facing excommunication from polite society. Yesterday’s Jennermania confirms how weirdly authoritarian, even idolatrous, trans politics has become.”


h/t Scaramouche who has a good round up of all things sickening.

    That Salon article Scaramouche links to is particularly funny. Oh of course, the occasional right wing tweet that is not fully supportive of this is pushing an agenda, but none of those showing support are. The left never cease to amaze me with their level of hypocrisy.

    • Salon is now the official site of the lunatic left.

  • ProgNorth

    It has truly been a gag-inducing couple of days, on social media.
    This is what we offer the rest of the world now…A one way ticket, to a socially engineered celebration of western moral decline.
    Enjoy if you must.

    “Above all else do no harm.”

    • Uncle_Waspy

      Hey, you can’t say “witch doctor” — that’s racist!

  • Dana Garcia

    Left wing steps to expanding morality consist of going from a sensible position to a ridiculous one. How better to show your superior liberal virtue than by being more extreme than the next guy?

    1. Beating up trannies is bad. Live and let live.

    2. Trannies are actually nice people. Take one to lunch.

    3. The tranny experience is an example of courageous human expression and should be celebrated — or else!

    • Sexual mutilation in the name of diversity and acceptance.

    • It has become a game, and one they will ultimately lose.

      • Exile1981

        I see transexuals the same way i see people with phantom limb syndrome. They believe a part of their body is not theirs and needs to be removed. Encouraging either group just feeds into their insanity and justifies self mutilation.

      • Speaksvolumes

        Only after the total collapse of everything.

        • Exile1981

          That is what the left wants.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    I am starting to see it as a duty to restore our faith and the equilibrium of our stomachs with a real woman we can all appreciate.

    • I needed that.

      • andycanuck

        That’s what she said!!!

    • andycanuck

      And are they all IDF?

      • Norman_In_New_York

        Yes, either on active duty or recently discharged. With a stalwart military like this, how can Israel lose?

  • Waffle

    Why do the lyrics to Cohen’s “The Future” keep running through my head?

  • Frau Katze

    Sorry, I just woke up and can’t bear to look at that photo again or read about it.

    Maybe I can fortify myself later and check it out.

    • Exile1981

      can we use the term “it” or the less offensive term “inmate”?

  • Kim Hanson

    Another liberal “tempest in a teapot”.

  • The Butterfly

    Ever since I can remember, deep inside, I’ve always felt like a beautiful butterfly. I can’t live this lie any more. I’m finally coming out. Goat no more.

    • Exile1981

      So when do you pupate?

      • The Butterfly


        • Exile1981

          i’m sorry is that the wrong term for coming out as a butterfly?

  • Speaksvolumes

    How is it that people who amputate their arms or legs in order to feel ‘whole’ is rightly seen as a severe (sever?) mental disorder, but people who cut off their genitals is seen as courageous?

    • Clink9

      Courage, in the olden days meant putting it all out there for others.

      Now it’s doing all you can for yourself. All that matters is me now.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Sometimes the truth hurts.

  • Minicapt

    “It” suffices for me.
