  1. Proof positive supreme intersectional preeminence of trannies isn’t shared outside our sniffy cultural monasteries. The common folk ain’t buying it – even the cherished “marginalized.”

  2. I think a lot of the wind could be taken out of the USS Transmania’s sails if the links between autism and gender dysphoria were more openly discussed. It seems clear to me that a fairly high percentage of them are on the spectrum and are latching onto transgenderism as a way of normalizing the dissonance they experience as part of daily life.

    I have a neighbor with a son and daughter, both of whom are clearly on the spectrum a bit, which was annoying when they were younger and playing with my kids or others and just did really strange stuff and/or didn’t realize that it wasn’t appropriate. The daughter is now in high school, has transformed her look into the standard gender neutral haircut and clothes and frankly I cannot tell her apart from her brother at this point (they are both sort of pudgy and similar in size).

    Likewise, my only known high school classmate who is now identifying as a woman was very clearly on the spectrum when we were in school – he had all sorts of difficulty in picking up on social cues, etc. and now is apparently a transwoman married to an actual woman. Very into anime and demanding he not be erased by society on social media.

    Agree. I was blown away when I heard a tick too teachers “sales pitch” to middle school students: “ Do you feel uncomfortable in your body? Would you like to change anything about your body?” 99.9 percent of 12-14 year olds will say yes! It’s a totally absurd assumption that if you feel uncomfortable with your body, you may be trans. But it seems to work. And I’d say 100 of autistic people have felt or do feel uncomfortable with their body or with how they are viewed in society.

    It seems like there are two clades among the adolescent girls, BPD and autism. I think it leans much more towards BPD. They seem to have a lot of stories about sexual abuse and relatives who are clearly on the cluster B spectrum. And the septum piercings are clearly BPD.

    And it also seems to me that this cohort is very psychologically similar to the anorexia communities. We're supposed to believe that actually the link is because a lot of those former anorexics were actually trans but didn't have the language to articulate it and sought a more male body fat distribution. But it seems more reasonable to think the opposite.

    Both these phenoms are also displays a new trend of adolescent girls being able to organise on the internet without input from others and come up with group think cults and religions.

    I knew an Ex-Men type who was an early bloomer. Kid was 16 years old and a top pianist at his high school when he started dressing like his grandmother. The funny part was seeing how tall and big he got by his senior year. I don't know what the restroom arrangements were. This was a well-run school in an affluent district and he wasn't particularly asshole-ish about his preferences so things got quietly worked out somehow.

    His parents were mortified. They would not be seen with him.

    He had a well-done, elaborate piano solo for the senior concert. I'll never forget the tolerant and supportive band director with his mouth inadvertently gaping open at the spectacle of it all. Picture a 200 pound, 6'2" man with a 5 o'clock shadow wearing a black full-length dress, heels, makeup and pearls sitting down to play the piano to polite, bourgeois applause. Like an absurdist Monty Python sketch.

    At a home for mentally handicapped people where I once worked, a particularly mischievous handicapped fellow somehow got the idea to say he wanted a sex change. (Back then, before mass tranny hysteria, that's what people said, "sex change".) To this day, I'm not sure this guy understood what asking for "sex change" meant, but he certainly understood it got him a lot of attention and special treatment.

    If you've never been around mentally handicapped people, it is very common that they pick up random notions from the atmosphere, which then become idée fixe for them: endlessly repeating a particular random phrase, arranging objects in a certain order, demanding ice cream before bedtime, supporting Joe Biden, wanting a sex change, you know, whatever.

    If you've never been around the kind of people who worked in this home for the handicapped, they were overwhelming liberals of the virtue-signaling variety. So, unlike the ice cream or the random phrases, which could be summarily ignored, the sex-change request had to be treated with the utmost seriousness—a kind of reverence almost. And given that the people responsible for him could not possibly deny him such a brave and stunning (or is it stunning and brave?) request, the relentless wheels of the Therapeutic Industrial Complex ground into motion, and he was inexorably escalated up the steps of the welfare state ziggurat, passing through interviews, tests, examinations, and testimonials from this "carers", until he arrived at the ziggurat's apex where the surgeon/priest waited to cut the man out him and make him into a fauxmale.

    (By the way, the local region had plenty of hard up people in a bad way whom the state couldn't be bothered with, but the state would readily spend six or seven figures to mutilate this guy in service of a suddenly crystalized whim. Why yes, it was a blue state, how did you know?)

    Teetering on the brink of the irreversible, maybe he received a visit from the Angel of Common Sense, or maybe the imminent prospect of the incising scalpel induced a momentary IQ surge, or maybe he simply thought, okay this bit of mischief has gone far enough, but whatever the case, on the eve of surgery, he suddenly recanted. ... And the whole laboriously piled up intervention pyramid "to provide gender-affirmative care" collapsed in on itself. ... And then an eerie conspiracy of silence—never to discuss what they almost did—descended on everyone involved.

    So yeah, as AnotherDad said, catering to every oddball impulse, it's an illness.

    Generally speaking mainline American churches and synagogues are as corrupted by globohomo as the rest of American society.

    But the fact that American places of worship are as corrupted as the rest of society is not a defect of the religions. It is a fundamental defect of American society.

    And if you are careful, and for some people willing and able to relocate, you can find Christian churches that are actually practice traditional Christianity, without those defects.

    Bingo. Although not necessarily cynical: the mainline churches, like the Republicans, are convinced that their salvation (as it were) lies with replacing declining stale pale Whites with these vibrant Hispanix.

    Of course, the only way for the Episcopal Church to survive is not to pander to gays and Hispanics, which drives away their remaining WASP gentry, but to go in the other direction, and operate as a WASP theme park, appealing to the Jane Austen/Downton Abbey/Princess Diana market.

    I thought the same thing about the V of G.

    My explanation is mainline liberal Lutherans who go to church have disappeared from the Central Valley, and an opportunistic macho Mexican guy decided to become a liberal Lutheran to get a really nice church building, a subsidy from the mother church, and the waiver of the Catholic rule for clerical celibacy. But he and his people are still mystical folk Catholics who adore the saints and the Catholic pageantry and ritual.

  6. Surely there is no enchantment…. neither is there any divination …..according to this time it shall be said …. What hath Martin Luther wrought!

  7. Jon says:

    Higher-ups in the Lutheran church send a transgender bishop, who was “was unknown to the congregation” according to the article, to fire the Puerto Rican pastor of a Mexican (illegal) immigrant congregation for his years long harrasment and retaliation against congregants that had accused him of sexual misconduct (because Puerto Rican), this is happening during the all-important (Catholic) festival honoring the Virgin of Guadalupe, and to make matters worse, ‘they’ smirked (autistically) during the announcement of the firing, exposing they’s bullet proof vest, leaving they with no other choice but to resign, because, as they stated: “I believe I would be a poor role model for my black trans children if I continued in this position.” It’s unclear where to go from here, except that everyone agrees on “the need for anti-racism and cultural sensitivity training.” (I agree)

    Did I get that right? And here I thought living through the fall of the West was going to be depressing.

    To the extent that any of this is genetic, it's all good in that these people will organize themselves right out of the gene pool.

    OTOH, I think that anorexia is clustered among upper middle class girls who want to please their parents by becoming "perfect". Just when they become "perfectly" thin, they die. So maybe becoming trans and having your breasts surgically removed instead of starving yourself to death is the better alternative.

    Taniqua isn't concerned about making herself "perfect" for her parents. In fact, her self esteem, all 230 lbs. of it, is very high. And her baby daddy loves her just the way she is.

    Perhaps it starts as a means to please, and perhaps lots of girls restrict their caloric intake and remain thin but are medically healthy and don't cross over into a true psychological pathology. This is a sort of mean between 230 lbs and 7o lbs that is fine if not ideal (because most Americans of both sexes eat much more than their bodies require - these girls aren't starving themselves but rather eating enough to be an optimally healthy weight).

    Some fraction seem to be unable to regulate the restrictions and become enamored of the control of their bodies by restricting food intake and perhaps it then becomes a means to wrest some control back from the kinds of UMC parents who expect to be pleased by their children at all times. It's the dysphoria that is really weird - objectively the emaciated girls who have that thin, pallid skin with absolutely no subcutaneous fat and dull, thin hair look positively awful - like they're already dead in some sense. So at some point between being vigilant to remain thin and an outright skin-draped skeleton these girls clearly lose the ability to please their parents by being thin and elicit negative attention. But maybe at that point the have turned the tables and not only control themselves by restricting their eating, but invert the control hierarchy on those demanding parents who have to beg them to eat something so they don't die while they can decide to do so or not thereby holding the family in their thrall (until they get too close to the sun and expire).

    I think a lot of the wind could be taken out of the USS Transmania's sails if the links between autism and gender dysphoria were more openly discussed. It seems clear to me that a fairly high percentage of them are on the spectrum and are latching onto transgenderism as a way of normalizing the dissonance they experience as part of daily life.

    I have a neighbor with a son and daughter, both of whom are clearly on the spectrum a bit, which was annoying when they were younger and playing with my kids or others and just did really strange stuff and/or didn't realize that it wasn't appropriate. The daughter is now in high school, has transformed her look into the standard gender neutral haircut and clothes and frankly I cannot tell her apart from her brother at this point (they are both sort of pudgy and similar in size).

    Likewise, my only known high school classmate who is now identifying as a woman was very clearly on the spectrum when we were in school - he had all sorts of difficulty in picking up on social cues, etc. and now is apparently a transwoman married to an actual woman. Very into anime and demanding he not be erased by society on social media.

    To the extent that any of this is genetic, it's all good in that these people will organize themselves right out of the gene pool.

    OTOH, I think that anorexia is clustered among upper middle class girls who want to please their parents by becoming "perfect". Just when they become "perfectly" thin, they die. So maybe becoming trans and having your breasts surgically removed instead of starving yourself to death is the better alternative.

    Taniqua isn't concerned about making herself "perfect" for her parents. In fact, her self esteem, all 230 lbs. of it, is very high. And her baby daddy loves her just the way she is.

    It seems like there are two clades among the adolescent girls, BPD and autism. I think it leans much more towards BPD. They seem to have a lot of stories about sexual abuse and relatives who are clearly on the cluster B spectrum. And the septum piercings are clearly BPD.

    And it also seems to me that this cohort is very psychologically similar to the anorexia communities. We're supposed to believe that actually the link is because a lot of those former anorexics were actually trans but didn't have the language to articulate it and sought a more male body fat distribution. But it seems more reasonable to think the opposite.

    Both these phenoms are also displays a new trend of adolescent girls being able to organise on the internet without input from others and come up with group think cults and religions.

    I knew an Ex-Men type who was an early bloomer. Kid was 16 years old and a top pianist at his high school when he started dressing like his grandmother. The funny part was seeing how tall and big he got by his senior year. I don't know what the restroom arrangements were. This was a well-run school in an affluent district and he wasn't particularly asshole-ish about his preferences so things got quietly worked out somehow.

    His parents were mortified. They would not be seen with him.

    He had a well-done, elaborate piano solo for the senior concert. I'll never forget the tolerant and supportive band director with his mouth inadvertently gaping open at the spectacle of it all. Picture a 200 pound, 6'2" man with a 5 o'clock shadow wearing a black full-length dress, heels, makeup and pearls sitting down to play the piano to polite, bourgeois applause.

    Higher-ups in the Lutheran church send a transgender bishop, who was "was unknown to the congregation" according to the article, to fire the Puerto Rican pastor of a Mexican (illegal) immigrant congregation for his years long harrasment and retaliation against congregants that had accused him of sexual misconduct (because Puerto Rican), this is happening during the all-important (Catholic) festival honoring the Virgin of Guadalupe, and to make matters worse, 'they' smirked (autistically) during the announcement of the firing, exposing they's bullet proof vest, leaving they with no other choice but to resign, because, as they stated: "I believe I would be a poor role model for my black trans children if I continued in this position." It’s unclear where to go from here, except that everyone agrees on "the need for anti-racism and cultural sensitivity training." (I agree)

    Yeah freaks are usually ugly. Lia Thomas is a sad exception, she/he was a tall handsome young elite athlete from a wealthy family and in the Ivy League.

    Even if he didn’t get surgery, he permanently disfigured himself by growing manboobs with the hormones he took. He’s likely an autogyn, but will end up with an insane ugly woman when he might have had a demure upper class beauty.

    "Demure upper class beauties" are rare on the ground at UPenn. You'll find loads of study Asians and Jewish daughters of lawyers and doctors. If you proposed to a UPenn coed that what you're looking for is a suitable wife to help support your career and make a life I don't imagine that would go over quite so well. Of course, with pickings so spare a UPenn man can always go a few miles West to that other traditional connubial hunting ground for UPenn men - the formerly WASP stronghold Bryn Mawr - in search of an upper class womyn who is, at best for his purposes, going to be a LUG (Lesbian Until Graduation). This would seem to me to be an exploitable niche for pickup artist coaching services - Your Bang Guide to LUGS of the Seven Sisters.

    Thomas is almost assuredly an autogynephile. It's been reported several times that he still dates women. It's also been reported through anonymous sources (women on the team who fear reprisals for speaking) that he readily walks around the locker room with his intact female penis proudly exposed, perhaps the worse for wear after cross-hormone therapy but still there all the same.

    I think a lot of the wind could be taken out of the USS Transmania's sails if the links between autism and gender dysphoria were more openly discussed. It seems clear to me that a fairly high percentage of them are on the spectrum and are latching onto transgenderism as a way of normalizing the dissonance they experience as part of daily life.

    I have a neighbor with a son and daughter, both of whom are clearly on the spectrum a bit, which was annoying when they were younger and playing with my kids or others and just did really strange stuff and/or didn't realize that it wasn't appropriate. The daughter is now in high school, has transformed her look into the standard gender neutral haircut and clothes and frankly I cannot tell her apart from her brother at this point (they are both sort of pudgy and similar in size).

    Likewise, my only known high school classmate who is now identifying as a woman was very clearly on the spectrum when we were in school - he had all sorts of difficulty in picking up on social cues, etc. and now is apparently a transwoman married to an actual woman.

    At a home for mentally handicapped people where I once worked, a particularly mischievous handicapped fellow somehow got the idea to say he wanted a sex change. (Back then, before mass tranny hysteria, that’s what people said, “sex change”.) To this day, I’m not sure this guy understood what asking for “sex change” meant, but he certainly understood it got him a lot of attention and special treatment.

    If you’ve never been around mentally handicapped people, it is very common that they pick up random notions from the atmosphere, which then become idée fixe for them: endlessly repeating a particular random phrase, arranging objects in a certain order, demanding ice cream before bedtime, supporting Joe Biden, wanting a sex change, you know, whatever.

    If you’ve never been around the kind of people who worked in this home for the handicapped, they were overwhelming liberals of the virtue-signaling variety. So, unlike the ice cream or the random phrases, which could be summarily ignored, the sex-change request had to be treated with the utmost seriousness—a kind of reverence almost. And given that the people responsible for him could not possibly deny him such a brave and stunning (or is it stunning and brave?) request, the relentless wheels of the Therapeutic Industrial Complex ground into motion, and he was inexorably escalated up the steps of the welfare state ziggurat, passing through interviews, tests, examinations, and testimonials from this “carers”, until he arrived at the ziggurat’s apex where the surgeon/priest waited to cut the man out him and make him into a fauxmale.

    (By the way, the local region had plenty of hard up people in a bad way whom the state couldn’t be bothered with, but the state would readily spend six or seven figures to mutilate this guy in service of a suddenly crystalized whim. Why yes, it was a blue state, how did you know?)

    Teetering on the brink of the irreversible, maybe he received a visit from the Angel of Common Sense, or maybe the imminent prospect of the incising scalpel induced a momentary IQ surge, or maybe he simply thought, okay this bit of mischief has gone far enough, but whatever the case, on the eve of surgery, he suddenly recanted. … And the whole laboriously piled up intervention pyramid “to provide gender-affirmative care” collapsed in on itself. … And then an eerie conspiracy of silence—never to discuss what they almost did—descended on everyone involved.

    To the extent that any of this is genetic, it's all good in that these people will organize themselves right out of the gene pool.

    OTOH, I think that anorexia is clustered among upper middle class girls who want to please their parents by becoming "perfect". Just when they become "perfectly" thin, they die. So maybe becoming trans and having your breasts surgically removed instead of starving yourself to death is the better alternative.

    Taniqua isn't concerned about making herself "perfect" for her parents. In fact, her self esteem, all 230 lbs. of it, is very high. And her baby daddy loves her just the way she is.

    So while we are breeding the neurotic genes out of the gene pool, maybe we are also breeding out the high functioning genes too.

    Perhaps it starts as a means to please, and perhaps lots of girls restrict their caloric intake and remain thin but are medically healthy and don’t cross over into a true psychological pathology. This is a sort of mean between 230 lbs and 7o lbs that is fine if not ideal (because most Americans of both sexes eat much more than their bodies require – these girls aren’t starving themselves but rather eating enough to be an optimally healthy weight).

    Some fraction seem to be unable to regulate the restrictions and become enamored of the control of their bodies by restricting food intake and perhaps it then becomes a means to wrest some control back from the kinds of UMC parents who expect to be pleased by their children at all times. It’s the dysphoria that is really weird – objectively the emaciated girls who have that thin, pallid skin with absolutely no subcutaneous fat and dull, thin hair look positively awful – like they’re already dead in some sense. So at some point between being vigilant to remain thin and an outright skin-draped skeleton these girls clearly lose the ability to please their parents by being thin and elicit negative attention. But maybe at that point the have turned the tables and not only control themselves by restricting their eating, but invert the control hierarchy on those demanding parents who have to beg them to eat something so they don’t die while they can decide to do so or not thereby holding the family in their thrall (until they get too close to the sun and expire).

    Bingo. Although not necessarily cynical: the mainline churches, like the Republicans, are convinced that their salvation (as it were) lies with replacing declining stale pale Whites with these vibrant Hispanix.

    Of course, the only way for the Episcopal Church to survive is not to pander to gays and Hispanics, which drives away their remaining WASP gentry, but to go in the other direction, and operate as a WASP theme park, appealing to the Jane Austen/Downton Abbey/Princess Diana market.

    “worshiping a virgin who gave birth to God and became Queen of the Angels but we’re not at all idolaters”

    It’s amazing how some very sophisticated people (or at least people who think they are) have trouble understanding the difference between veneration and worship. Also, denial of the Virgin Birth is a heresy which has gotten Protestant clergy defrocked.
