Now, I don't want to read too much into Time magazine, but I do think there is some significance to this. And I keep saying to myself, "When is this gonna end? When are we going to reach the point where people say 'I can't take this shit anymore'?" Are Americans simply going to put up with being boiled to death by degrees until they have been boiled?

Steve,

I just finished reading this from a link on Drudge, and you again define the word prescient.

I just watched the video trailer, "Accepting Cassidy", and I need to go for a walk and clear my head. It's funny, despite the meme of being the first transgender homecoming queen, Cassidy accidentally goes off script and uses the term gay on two or three occasions to describe herself/himself and her/his friend.

Gosh I'm tired.

The thing is that while I'm sure there'll be future Important Causes, with same-sex marriage/transgender stuff they're successful because of the whole innate state argument, even though they're obviously a little more ambiguous in that regard compared to race. Contrast with something like polyamory that might be pushed more from some corners in the coming years, when that's obviously a choice + duh, guys want multiple women & we already have that with the whole "friends with benefits" thing.

Transgenderism is the exact opposite of gay liberation. This will become apparent in the coming generation. Once all the effeminate boys who want to be queen are out of the closet, wither gay liberation?

IIRC The New Yorker published an article on this subject that did express some degree of skepticism on how early certain kids were "transitioning." Pretty soon those'll go the way of your occasional pre-mid '00s liberal mild unease over homosexuality though, bank it

Cassidy the homecoming "queen" reminds me of the whole "Is there anything white guys can't do?" thing that Steve has commented on before.

Now a queen can be homecoming queen!

You can't make this stuff up.

The saddest, and sickest, part is that the high school kids were so brainwashed that they actually voted the queen for homecoming queen. Is it me or is this another slam against feminine females? First feminism comes along and tears down women for being chaste and mothers etc and demands they be more like men, then the trannies come along and take women's natural place.

I see feminism and trannies as attacks against the kind of women men generally want. It is anti woman. It is trading natural relations for unnatural.

SFG said...

There have always been people whose brains' gender didn't fit their bodies' gender, probably due to some hormonal problems in utero. Societies have done different things with them--the ancient Greeks, for example, would let you sleep with men if you were a guy but you still had to father kids for the polis.

Demanding that we all treat them as the gender they think they are strikes me as silly and requiring some nasty surgery...and you will never be able to fool most people. No matter what you tell them, most guys don't want to bonk a girl who used to be a guy.

Malaysia is spending most of their time becoming more nutty-Islam (the current panic is because some Cadbury's chocolate has trace amounts of lard) and freaking out that the Chinese minority, which is by far and away the most productive group, are leaving in droves. Of course, they aren't worried enough to actually change any of their policies.

Malaysia is a great illustrative example of the majority benefiting from AA. A glimpse of our future, if you will. Google the New Economic Policy if you're curious.

No. The world intellectual class is pretty homogenized, everyone reads the same founding "texts" and tries to apply the same formulas. The only difference is that large parts of non-Western societies either live in areas almost untouched directly by "modernity" (as of now), or do not get to imbibe it with universal schooling or the mass media, because the reach of both is weak.

The result is that the intellectual class of, say, Ghana, Lebanon, Pakistan, etc. is a clone of its Western model - but doesn't have that much clout, because it is much smaller, and because "unreconstructed bigots" are a large part of population and keep the Overton window way to its (culturally-based) right as compared to the West. There, too, the Overton window only moves leftward, each year a little bit, but the pace is much slower than in the West.

It's picking up though. Besides mass culture, which is overwhelmingly produced in America, the problem is that the United States is the richest and most powerful nation in the world. So, when anyone with half a brain asks asks, "what should we do?", the answer "emulate the U.S." is the most obvious. The current U.S., not the U.S. that rose to greatness. Once America is down, it will serve as a model to no one, but it'll take time for the decline to become so obvious to outsiders.

Trannies are some real old fashioned types. They want men to let them go first, to have doors opened for them, all the courtly behavior long ago denounced as regressive by those claiming to speak on behalf of those who were born female. They want the special treatment previously accorded to women and they want plenty of it. No women's libber type rhetoric for them. Every one wants to be a princess.

Not when modern bleeding hearts have a say in the matter. Mind you, I have more sympathy for those handicapped by medical conditions than those handicapped by a dysfunctional ethnic culture. Anyone can walk away from an culture, especially if they can see right in front of them that it ain't workin' out.

What do gorillas have to do with any of this? Gorillas are not dysfunctional. They are superbly adapted to their environment, which happens to be the tropics of Africa. Can arctic musk-oxen transported to central Africa survive as well?

Deep inside a tranny is a man who hates his manhood, and want the unearned power and privilege of women in a post-feminist society. Modern feminism is nothing more than effortless "princess ideology". Gone are the earlier generations of women's libbers and suffragettes, who at least were willing to pay the price for "male" power and prestige.

Not quite, Anon 7:19. It's only the radical feminists who hate trannies (and trannies hate them back, complete with murder fantasies and rape threats and similar ladylike behaviour). Mainstream feminist reactions are divided: the fanatically pro-tranny, the somewhat cautious, and the utterly confused. In a couple of years most of the latter two will either become fanatically pro-tranny, or at least pretend to be so as to avoid losing cred.

Lesbians though do seem to be turning on trannies, mostly because of the cotton ceiling ladypenis nonsense "lesbian" trannies keep pulling. Not that it makes much difference in the wider context of tranny movement progression, but it is pretty interesting to observe.

One thing I forgot to mention on the trannies-intruding-in-bathrooms issue is that lately there have been several incidents with grown men ("transwomen") exposing themselves to little girls in pool changing rooms and such, scandals in schools because of little supposedlly-trans kids being encouraged to use the bathrooms of the other sex, etc. Some of these incidents have been so surreal, I really do wonder is the US really so far gone as to accept them? Is this really going to be the new normal?

Not that I underestimate the power of media brainwashing, but some of this stuff really is gonna be some of the most absurd, surreal crap the American public has ever been expected to swallow. We'll see, I guess.

wow. just...wow.

it is simply not possible that i grew up in the united states in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. that has to have been a dream. it cannot possibly have been the same planet. it was all a mirage, a fantasy. i imagined the united states as it was in 1985. certainly such a place did not actually exist.

also goes to show that you simply cannot trust open homosexuals as politicians or in positions of authority. as i posted before, maybe you could trust 2 or 3, but in general, not a chance. they simply cannot be counted on to act on behalf of their constituents. they simply will not do what is best for heterosexuals with children, because they are not heterosexuals with children.

2014 will go down as the year things officially started to go crazy. may 29 in particular is a landmark day!

look at the headlines on zerohedge, drudgereport, vdare. the economy contracts 1% and in response the stock market in goes to all time highs. what, how, what the? does this mean...the federal reserve completely owns the entire US financial market?

interest rates are going DOWN. what? how? wages are not moving up, so stagflation seems likely. the US economy contracts but the price of oil stays at 104 for WTI.

civil war in ukraine, that the US started. civil war in iraq. in syria. in libya. the US is arming and training al-qaeda in syria! china is moving on oil fields in vietnam waters. russia and china are beginning a global trade strategy to get out of using the dollar as the reserve currency.

and to ensure there was no mistake that in one single day we crossed the rubicon into sheer insanity, an offer has been made on the los angeles clippers for...2 BILLION dollars? may 29 2014. mark it down. all it will take now is for amnesty to pass and this will be the most significant year in decades. the government is already openly setting up aid stations for illegal aliens...

Contra what others are saying, yes, actually, there is. None of them talk specifically about transsexuals to my knowledge, except to point in slack jawed horror. I think the writers for the Asia times, including "Spengler" have some interesting ideas, written in easily accessible English. Ditto the Singapura thinkers (including and perhaps especially LKY), though Kishore Mahbubani occasionally quotes Thomas Friedman for some reason. I'm quite certain the Chinese also think about this in inner party discussions we'll never read, and the Russians have a deep back bench. Islamic nations almost certainly have thinkers who interpret our decadence in the same way as any other sensible person would.

Without taking sides here, I think the root of the problem is that homos and heteros have no common ground, no mutual understanding. They will always do what's best for their kind. It's not a moral failing, rather an intellectual and empathic one. As a married-but-childless hetero man, I can see some of the other side of the coin, and it is very alien.

David, the cotton ceiling is what trannies call lesbians not wanting to have sex with them. The claim is that the lesbians not wanting to have sex with them because they have penises is transphobic, because their penises are not male, they're female penises. Yep. "Ladypenises" or "ladysticks" as they call them. Google it, there are tons of essays dedicated to the injustice of it all, it's pretty hilarious. The struggle for transgender civil rights, indeed.

There was a Canadian boy who had a botched circumcision so the docs decided to operate on him to make him a girl and in a study conducted by child molestor John Money it was deemed a success so the media and academia deeemed it a success.

The moment he could he got himself changed back to being male.

@jody, thank you for the link. I read it aghast. The racial aspect is interesting - the only organized group against this abomination was a group of black pastors who played the race card in frustration. Normally I am opposed on principle to any playing of the race card I loathe it so, but perhaps in this case the pastor who complained of being 'sent to the back of the bus' had a point.

The only situation where whites stand up to blacks is on behalf of gay rights. I wonder if it isn't a proxy war of sorts.

Weird. Race realists such as myself stand with blacks on this. Politics really does make strange bedfellows.

Speaking of strange bedfellows was lesbians and gays. Is WWT going to cause a gay and lesbian divorce?

Yes, and you can read all about it in "As Nature Made Him," an excellent and very well-written book about this sad story -- the author doesn't try to make us feel anything; he just tells the story bluntly and with minimal adjectives or adverbs; and because the author doesn't try to manipulate our emotions, the prose hits hard. The disfigured boy, who they tried to raise as a girl, went on to marry and have children.

Someone was saying in another comment that the intellectual classes were thinking the same
ideas everywhere.

Uniformisation might be a trend that's accelerating at the moment but it seems to me that there are regions of the world where there still are prominent intellectuals, writers and artists who don't buy into the rootless cosmopolitan worldview.

In a lot of African countries, a fair number of local intellectuals have strongly come out against what they actually call "western endorsed gayISM".

There was an article here a few weeks ago about Anne Applebaum visiting Georgia and reporting that in the mind of some of the local thinkers, the west was the LGBT-West.

Yes, I know who Spengler is. He's the most intelligent, honest and original Neocon there is. As a result, he had to write his Spengler pieces for the Asia Times until recent years. His pieces were taken quite seriously in Singapore at least. They were deep, and pretty weird by most Western Standards. The pap he writes for First Things and PJ Media don't compare to it. Pity, really.

You're wrong about foreign intellectuals not being horrified at what is going on in the US. LKY, who I mentioned already, is quite explicit about it, as are the Russians. I mean, Solzhenitsyn has been criticizing the direction America is going in since he got here in the 1970s (read his Harvard address from the time). Of course, nobody ever listened to him, unless he was criticizing the Soviets. He really became an unperson when he went back to Russia a patriot. Dugin, Limonov, even the modestly western favored Nalvany -all are horrified at what is going in in Western Culture and want no part of it. Neither do their common people. Neither do the physicists or data scientists I have met, with very few very Westernized exceptions. Just because you haven't read these guys in Western media doesn't mean they do not exist. It just means, like Steve Sailer, they are ignored as thought criminals by Western media.

A lot of Africans think that the Western push for LGBT 'rights (along with Western gays using Africa as a pedo sex tourism destination) is a Western attempt to fracture and undermine their societies, so that Africans can be more easily dominated and exploited (and so liberal Western intellectuals will support the domination and exploitation -- see how our best minds talk about Uganda).

WWT and Rodgers

It's funny that a society that endlessly promotes self-esteem should be complaining about narcissism.

And what is the homosexual agenda if not narcissistic? If men who indulge in anal penetration or opt to their penises cut off to become 'women' should deserve to feel so great about themselves, it appears narcissism is our national cult.

Look at the current Time mag cover.

http://timedotcom.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/transgender-cover.jpg?w=560

It's a major adventure in narcissism. Not just physical but moral narcissism. It says even freaks should feel like gods and goddesses. It's not about civil or human rights but the right to feel as gods. Even silly freaks should feel as the most beautiful and sanctimonious deities.

There is a 'gay' sensibility behind this since homos are the most aesthetically obsessed and bitchy people on Earth. Rodgers wasn't a homo but he was feeding on 'gay sensibility' of aestheto-narcissism that is all over the media.

When homos apply it to art, they can create remarkable stuff. When applied to life, it causes problems since reality doesn't conform to fantasies and ideals.

Or take Oprah. Just some frumpy fat black woman. But she's been promoted and hailed as someone almost divine. And she teamed up with Dr. Phil the shrink.
Funny, aint it?
A 'no-nonsense' therapist in cahoots with some charlatan woman who peddles fantasies.

And take a look at this.

If Rodgers didn't kill, he'd be just another specimen of the 'new norm'.

I don't agree. When it comes to economic policy non-Western intellectuals have very real and very strong disagreements with the American consensus.

When it comes to social issues, they mostly just keep quiet. You won't find very many Pakistani college professors arguing for gay marriage and allowing men into girls locker rooms.
