Your oppressive cisgendered heteronormative patriarchy is making your transgendered dog crazy

Academics claim SEXISM is turning dogs crazy – because pooches struggle to meet ‘gender stereotypes’

Sexism is apparently bad for dogs.

Academics Paul McGreevy, from the University of Sydney, and the University of Wollongong’s Fiona Probyn-Rapsey have blamed gender stereotypes for harming the mental health of pooches.

‘While we know how damaging stereotypes can be for humans, dog owners may not consider just how their conceptual baggage of gender stereotypes affects the animals they live with,’ they said in an article published on The Conversation.

Dr McGreevy, a professor of animal behaviour, and Professor Probyn-Rapsey, a humanities academic, said many dog owners were forcing their ‘own gender identities’ on to their pets.

‘The lives of dogs depend upon how they conform to gender expectations,’ they said.

    “Professor” has become synonymous with “idiot.” How long will customers of this shit pay for it?

    • Slowly slowly it will happen.

        And like going into bankruptcy, it will progress very slowly and then it will happen very fast. And then people will be out of a job and some students will find a degree in Grievance Studies is less than worthless as it might prevent you ever getting a good job but also might come with an unplayable debt because of the types of jobs you can get with that degree.

        We have a (now retired) friend who spent the last two decades of career in Education working on “literacy models” for use in Ontario public schools. When we last saw this person, my wife reflected upon how Ontario literacy results continue their decades-long downwards slide. “Does that make you feel like you failed in your efforts?” my wife quite reasonably asked. Our friend took great exception to my wife’s inquiry. Our friend’s spouse admitted to posing the same question in the past and receiving a similar reaction. I piped in with my usual “Sometimes the Truth can pinch a bit, just like new shoes.” That did nothing to alleviate the moment. 😉

          Did he ever answer the question?

          • Justin St.Denis

            I carefully did not specify our friend’s gender, which is female. Why did you presume otherwise, I wonder.

            No, our friend responded very negatively to the suggestion. I tried to soften the blow, pointing out how my side constantly points out how I ignore my “many” talents and focused on only one (which, I always add, provided us with the pretty damned good lifestyle over the decades).

            Women, like millennials and Hindustanis, need constant positive feedback that they are smart, valued and appreciated. Being an employer sometimes brings a few things into sharp focus. 😉

            Darn good question. Not sure actually why I assumed “he”.

  • J. C.

    When are we going to start killing these people??? They’re dangerous to themselves and everyone around them…

    • canminuteman

      Unfortunately I think we will have to wait until they start killing us. Then we can go all Genghis Khan on them.

  • canminuteman

    It must be doubly hard for my dog who I routinely refer to as “she” despite the fact that I so heartlessly had de sexed!

    • H8tr!

    • Watchman

      You would think differently if you bothered to complete the process and paid for the building of a phallus (‘phalloplasty’) and implantation of fake testicles along with appropriate male hormones. After this, I’m sure you would start referring to this dog as a ‘he’. /sarc

    Another [m]academia nut from [m]academia land.

    Seriously, time to defund universities. Universities have morphed in one generation from institutions of reason to train professionals – engineers, medicine, law – into diversities that train idiots. Not even our pets are immune from these boneheads.

    • It’s only going to get worse.

      The natural check on these things – as with business in general – was that if an idea was bad or nonsense, it wouldn’t work or would lose money. And therefore be discarded. But by subsidizing businesses, universities and the like, an artificial environment is created in which stupidity can flourish. As long as our societies tilt to socialism then such stupidity will continue.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Because socialism itself is a form of Stupidity.

      • Thomas Henderson

        Agree. Until recently, universities were self-funding. Students’ own tuition and successful Alumni benefactors paid the bills. There was little incentive to suffer fools gladly. And numbers were limited to the benefit and profit of the professions.
        Cut the universities from the public teat. Either you’re smart enough to win a scholarship or you follow in your daddy’s shoes. The egalitarian gravy train approach is a failure. It gives us what we got now: make work projects for layabouts and leeches.

    Studying the photo, there is a very close resemblance to Bruce/”Caitlyn”.
    Poor dog.

    A fair amount of leftists are upset that dogs haven’t bought into the agenda. Male dogs are still raising their legs and spraying trees (pseudo substitute for antifa members, cultural marxists, feminists, rabid liberals?) Female dogs still squat to shit and role their eyes whenever muslims say they are a religion of peace, dogs know shit even when its spoken. This transgender thing is just another turd, that male and female dogs can spray and squat over.
    Maybe leftists are secretly cat souls?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Leftists cannot possibly be “cat souls”. Leftists are followers (sheeple). Ever try to train cats to perform a coordinated routine? Try it and discover that cats are NOT followers (sheeple). Each puss marches to his/her own drum. That’s just the way it is.

      You should be more respectful of cats when posting on Blazing CAT Fur. Sheesh! 😉

    How many levels of stupid are there?
