Skip to comments.The 'Transgender Tipping Point' to Censorship
Posted on 06/13/2014 4:27:51 PM PDT by Kaslin
Now that our cultural elites feel they have sufficiently educated the public on the virtues of gays and lesbians, it's time to drill down to the next level. Here comes transgenderism. Time magazine placed "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox (born Charles Cox) on the cover as the face of "The Transgender Tipping Point: America's Next Civil Rights Frontier."
Cox wrote on Facebook that the Time cover was a wonderful present on her birthday, and "I realize this is way bigger than me and about a tipping point in our nation's history where it is no longer acceptable for trans lives to be stigmatized, ridiculed, criminalized and disregarded."
Beware of the words "tipping point." That means Americans will no longer be allowed to express dissent, moral or otherwise, about the choice to discard the oppressive "gender binary" and be whichever blend of genders you choose. Disagree, and you "stigmatize" and "dehumanize" people. You deny them "civil rights." You "criminalize" the innocent.
Washington Post culture blogger Alyssa Rosenberg celebrated this just like Time's helpful 1997 "Yep, I'm Gay" cover for Ellen DeGeneres. "Cox is helping viewers connect a set of issues that might have been abstract to them with the lived experience of someone they admire."
Or as NPR reporter Neda Ulaby instructed in a glowing profile of Cox, her women's-prison drama "'Orange Is the New Black' has won a Peabody for illuminating people too-often dehumanized by their incarceration or their perceived gender difference."
Once again, the show laughably calling itself "All Things Considered" kept its LGBT propaganda unfettered by any consideration of a socially conservative critique.
In response to Time magazine, National Review's Kevin Williamson wrote a column with the apparently inflammatory title "Laverne Cox Is Not a Woman."
Not only did Williamson strike a blow for reality, he dared to write, "The mass delusion that we are inculcating on the question of transgendered people ... would impose on society at large an obligation -- possibly a legal obligation under civil-rights law, one that already is emerging -- to treat delusion as fact, or at the very least to agree to make subjective impressions superordinate to biological fact in matters both public and private."
The Chicago Sun-Times reprinted this, and then the censorship group with the Orwellian name GLAAD cranked up its outrage. The intolerants forced the Sun-Times to banish the article from its website and confess obsequiously, "Upon further consideration, we concluded the essay did not include some key facts and its overall tone was not consistent with what we seek to publish."
GLAAD's chief whip-cracker Sarah Kate Ellis insisted that stating Cox was not a woman was "ugly and insulting propaganda," and "dangerous to readers' understanding of who transgender people are." Biologically sound dissent is not to be allowed. "These harmful messages about the validity of transgender identity have no place in a credible mainstream publication."
For the full nuttiness of today's gender-bending left, consider GLAAD's conclusion: "Kevin D. Williamson is not the arbiter of who is a woman, nor is the Chicago Sun-Times. It is beneath any reputable national journalistic outlet to reprint such dangerous and false rhetoric."
Don't look at your genitals. Truth is falsehood, and falsehood truth.
GLAAD also forced the firing of a Rochester, New York, radio-show duo who mocked that city's decision to use tax dollars to fund "gender reassignment surgery" for its transgender bureaucrats. The station owners at Entercom Communications apologized profusely: "Their hateful comments against the transgender community do not represent our station or our company."
GLAAD is rising, and freedom of speech in America is dying. Everyone must promote only the glorious fluidity of gender narrative.
I admit I am lost. I need re education camp. In a world in which Facebook has 56 different gender identities, I only know a handful. I know about straight and gay and lesbian and bisexual and trans whatever. Then I am lost after that.
I’m also too binary in my thinking. Focus on male and female is binary thinking and does not celebrate diversity. So I got to go to camp and learn the joys of 56 genders.
Unfortunately the radicalism of the degenerate left will inevitably bring about a radical response.
And when it happens I will not shed a tear for these people and I will not let my children fight or die to protect them from reaping the whirlwind they have sown.
I sense a colossal strategic error here -- on their part.
Hides the hands . . . they always hide the hands.
In the UK they’ve moved past homotranswhatever and are pushing to normalize pedophilia. See the influential leftwing the Guardian magazine— http://www.theguardian.com/society/2013/jan/03/paedophilia-bringing-dark-desires-light
The hands are probably man hands.
Whatever the choose to call themselves, all 56 varieties have one thing in common: mental illness. Pray for them.
Anybody who posts a picture of a freak like this should be required to post five pictures of real Women.
I’m sick of the fixation on the “virtues” of the alphabet soup of abnormal sexual behaviors.
I’ve noticed in recent years, we’re hearing much more about “LGBT” peoples. And particularly more about the “T” or trans-gendered of the LGBT peoples.
It’s all about pushing the envelope. We’re on the way to institutionalizing same-sex marriage. What next, but to deal more with the “T” issues.
Can’t get my mind around marriage for the “T” group. Can’t imagine how things will go, depending on whether the “T” partners have had their sex change operations yet....Sheesh.... I don’t want to think about any of this......
He should be a link to the fact that you can’t change sex.
Get wit da times. Now it be.
‘LGBTQIA is a more inclusive term than LGBT for people with non-mainstream sexual orientation or gender identity.’
“Don’t you dare call me Bob...”
Okay, how about just “ugly freak”, then?
Don’t know some of those faces, but I do know that Megan Kelly is just fine with the homosexual agenda, so I suspect she is on board with this sex change stuff.
It flat out looks SILLY.
FGS, Milton Berle used to do it every show.
Nowadays, you'd get a severe frowning if not ostracized if you found that funny.
Sorry, but I think it looks preposterous when some guy thinks he's "fooling" everyone, but is clearly male.
I hereby plead guilty to laughing.
“She” has nicer legs than I do and I’m a biological female!
*Stomping foot* It just isn’t fair!
LMAO! Barney Frank is there.
One wonders why these people do not just stay quiet and get on with their lives?.
Really. I’m sure Perfect Strangers is set to be flushed down the memory hole, if it hasn’t been already. Oh, and Tootsie. When will Tom Hanks and Dustin Hoffman commence with the self-flagilation?
Reality = truth. These people want to stomp it out. Darkness hates the light.
This has got to be the end result of worship of self and the delusion that men can be their own gods. This transgenderism abomination is yet another example of man attempting to play god - fashioning creations in his own image and likeness. The creation attempt is one contorted perverted mess. Do not want.
Our tenant in one of the most conservative cities in one of the most conservative states has gone from being Jerry to being Elizabeth. I’m so confused.
You expressed the situation perfectly!
we now have a tower of Trouble
This is a very serious matter. You can lose your job if you don’t agree that a man can turn into a woman (or vice versa) simply by an act of will. When you do, a significant part of the public will cheer, because of course you should have known better than to be so mean as to oppose her (his? her? his?) sincere self-identification.
I don’t know what the next step is, but now that “we” have declared the existence of objective reality to be socially unacceptable, I predict that it will be a doozy.
-phobia is a suffix.
A pre-op trans and a black female at work got into an argument on civil rights, and the black female brought up the legacy of oppression through the 1960s and how the trans had a choice. The trans countered, “There are a lot more like you than like me.”
The black female lost her job shortly thereafter.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Interesting point though, how far do we have to bend to go along with another person’s delusion legally?
Why should be care?
I think you actually meant "Bosom Buddies" with Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari ...
Now that it's been established that there is no such thing as a delusion, only varying perceptions, the penalties for those who insist a reality exists will be determined on a case-by-base basis.
Why are transgendered people welcomed in the homosexual community? They aren’t even gay.
Ask your employer.
Weirdos have to stick together.
If you’re a man who dresses like a woman, maybe even has some hormone treatment/surgery to look more like a woman, and you’re doing sex acts with men, you’re homosexual.
I’m in CA, so everyone here claims to be a cosmic muffin, or some such victim.
Being employed works agaisnt you for benefits unless your employment is government.
Good points. However, in order to claim to be a lesbian, you’d have to persuade ... whoever’s in charge of these things ... that you believe you’re a woman.
No, I am a MALE lesbian. My delusion would be way beyond trying to convince someone I am a woman. I am a man who likes women, so obviously I am a male lesbian according to the delusion of the day.
Well, good luck with that. If a man can say he’s a woman, he can say he’s a lesbian with equal sincerity. It’s not like words mean anything.
Now they merely have to convince GOD!
