If you follow me on Instagram then maybe you saw my update on Trump’s 1 year anniversary. I decided to google what on earth people really mean when they write about so-called “Toxic Masculinity” and what I found is nothing short of hilarious….
My favourite headline is this one: How to Keep Donald Trump from Spreading His Toxic Masculinity to Future Generations
This quote is of particular interest, as this expert clearly doesn’t know anything about the rest of the world:
“Not in Europe or Mexico or South America or Canada do young people, college-age people, get together and socialize by getting shit-faced. That’s not how it’s done in other countries. I think the reason why our young people socialize through extreme intoxication is because they have trouble relating to each other and they have difficulty knowing how to be with each other without getting smashed. They learn over time. Millennials are a mixed bag. I have great faith in the millennials. They will take over, and that Trumpian masculinity will decline when they do.”
A while back I decided to google a little about Transgenderism and what activists for Trans-rights are really saying … what I found astounded me….Apparently I should do this whenever I shake someone’s hand:
“Relearning Politeness, Part 2: Cis Privilege and Trans Safety
In an ideal world, asking for people’s pronouns will be as straightforward as asking someone’s name, and the answer will be as safe and nonchalant – and respected.”
Who else used to put symbols on people’s clothes? I wonder…..
“Or you could introduce yourself with your name and your pronouns: “Hi, my name is Adrian, and I use they/them/their pronouns. What’s your name and, if you use them, pronouns?”
Put your name and your pronouns on nametags. Basically, whenever you are using your name in a new setting, make sure your pronouns (if you use them) are glued to it. This will help set the standard.”
Make us all safer? How? Am I unsafe if I just use he/she/it????
“We need to toss the idea that you can decide someone else’s identity without asking them. Because we can’t.
Why do so many people want to know other people’s a/gender identities?
A lot of this has to do with them wanting to know how to treat others. But apart from consensually affirming other people’s identities, deciding how to treat others based on their a/gender identity is sexist.
So, for the love of trans people, and for the love of feminism, let’s make this happen.
It will make us all safer.”
Before Halloween I also found several articles about how one needs to choose ones costume with the greatest care in order to be politically correct …
“…there are a host of costumes that might not go down a treat in 2017. That’s as well as the usual ‘sexy’ options available to women.”
I bet dressing up in a niqab would have been appropriate enough……
I’m wondering when South Park and comedy will be verboten. Can’t be that long now….
This is an interesting read actually: When Knights Surrender Their Swords, Beasts Shall Devour Maidens. Knights are dead and gone I think, the only culture keeping a strange version of it alive is the whole “online-Sugar-Daddy-culture” which resembles prostitution more than anything. Maybe the whole “Knight-culture” can be found within ailing Christian communities, but I doubt that too … more than anything it can probably be found within foreign cultures, where women are still seen as in need of protection. I think cynicism and indifference is what can be more clearly observed over here … but … who knows? Maybe it isn’t that appealing to be a Knight in shining armour when women have become so vulgar? But then again , vulgarity is King in a post-modern environment, so who knows?
