Postchristian, postmodern values

In 2002, a pedophile murders two ten-year-old girls.

In 2005, the pedophile murderer gets sentenced to jail.

In 2018, pedophile murderer claims he is a woman and wants to be moved to a woman’s prison.

According to social justice logic, he must therefore be a she.

So if anyone criticizes him by actually using his name, Twitter will ban you for “deadnaming”

One Story the Friendly Atheist Won’t Touch

Over a year ago, I highlighted the propagandistic essence of anti-religious blogs like The Friendly Atheist.

In other words, employ the propagandistic technique of cherry picking, which is not hard to do thanks to the internet’s ability to record every infraction or outrageous claim that occurs around the entire globe.

Mehta and his team of propagandists, of course, rely heavily on this technique as fodder for their popular activist atheist blog deceptively named, “The Friendly Atheist.”

I then noted,

To help us all understand how this propagandistic cherry picking works, imagine if this atheist activist approach was used against another large group of people – educators.What if I were to create a blog that sought to demonize educators?  Let’s call it, “Teacher! Leave Those Kids Alone!”  Would it be hard to follow Mehta’s advice and regularly find stories that put teachers in a bad light?  Not at all. 

And then easily illustrated my point.

Of course, I could have continued to illustrate that same point again and again over the many months that followed my blog entry.

For example, just recently a teacher was arrested for trying to traffick a minor child to multiple men online in Morocco.

Social Justice Atheists Continue to Fragment

Atheist feminist PZ Myers is now lashing out at atheist feminist Ophelia Benson.   It all started when Fiona Longmuir tweeted that people who are confused about trans rights need to “shut up and listen.” Benson carefully dissected this tweet on her blog and this got the attention of PZ Myers, who responded by labeling Benson a dreaded TERF. 

In all fairness, we should note that Myers doesn’t make a good faith effort to address Benson’s main points. So he loses big points there.  Instead, he chooses to focus solely on the second paragraph of Benson’s blog post.  She wrote:

Bad beginning, taking “cis” as 1) a meaningful and useful descriptive and 2) an obviously privileged and dominant group that needs to check itself. I don’t recognize “not thinking I’m the sex I’m not” as a form of privilege, any more than I recognize “not thinking I’m a bird” as a form of privilege. The word “cis” is pretty much designed to make people feel guilty and defensive simply for not having a bizarre delusion. Granted, it’s convenient not to have a bizarre delusion, but convenience isn’t exactly the same thing as privilege.

I don’t view the term “cis” as something that was designed “to make people feel guilty and defensive.”  That would only work on people who have the psychological need to virtue signal about this issue.  Instead, I think the term has a more widespread and mundane purpose – to simply facilitate the mainstreaming of transgenderism.  In other words, just as there are heterosexuals and homosexuals, there are cis and trans.

Anyway, PZ replies:

1) Cis does have a sensible meaning. It refers to someone whose gender identity matches the sex that they were assigned at birth. Even if you don’t like it, you have to acknowledge that there are people whose gender identity does not match their assigned sex, making this a meaningful and useful descriptor. Or do you think trans people are actually comfortable and identify with their assigned sex? Are they just making it all up? Why?

Y’gotta love how Myers’ post-modernist ideology has distorted his “pro-science” posturing.  Pay careful attention to the three times he refers to one’s sex as something that is “assigned.”  Really?  One’s sex doesn’t have anything to do with meiosis and fertilization?  This does raise a thorny question for the biologist.  If sex is merely a social construct that is assigned at birth, does this mean the fetus is neither male nor female just prior to birth?

But it gets even more weird.

New Year, Same Social Justice Authoritarianism

PinkNews, an LGBT website, excitedly reported, “Switzerland votes to send people to prison for homophobia and transphobia.”

Here are a few excerpts:

Switzerland has voted to make homophobic and transphobic crimes punishable with up to a three year prison sentence.

The council voted 118 for and 60 against to introduce a prison sentence for homophobia and transphobia.

A prison sentence for homophobia and transphobia?

And keep in mind this prison sentence can come from merely expressing an opinion.  For example, Mathias Reynard, who put forward motion, posted on Twitter on September 25:

“National Council accepts my parliamentary initiative against homophobia and transphobia! He added: “I tabled the motion after speaking to friends of mine who have personally been victims of verbal and physical homophobic violence.

Verbal violence?

Social Justice Temper Tantrums

 

Since these videos are viral, you’ve probably seen them.  But if not, enjoy the social justice ragieness.

First, we have an employee at a vape store going nuts because a customer walked in with a Trump shirt.  If nothing else, enjoy the employee’s woke scream at about 3 minutes in:

 

Next up, a trans women goes on a rage because the employee referred to this fine lady as “sir.”  Gotta love the ladylike request to “take it outside” around 0:25.

Ah yes, the superiority of the secular mindset.

Not Dating Trans People = Transphobia

You know this was coming.  According to this LGBTQ website, “New Research Shows a Vast Majority of Cis People Won’t Date Trans People.”

Virtually all heterosexuals excluded trans folks from their dating pool: only 1.8% of straight women and 3.3% of straight men chose a trans person of either binary gender. But most non-heterosexuals weren’t down for dating a trans person either, with only 11.5% of gay men and 29% of lesbians being trans-inclusive in their dating preferences.

Of course, this a huge problem from a social justice viewpoint, as all this trans exclusion is harmful:

Romantic relationships are one of the most important sources of social support for adults. The fact that most cis people would not consider trans people as potential dating partners is yet another serious risk factor for increased psychological and physical health problems among the trans population.

and

The high rates of trans exclusion from potential dating pools are undoubtedly due in part to cisnormativity, cissexism, and transphobia — all of which lead to lack of knowledge about transgender people and their bodies, discomfort with these unknowns, and fear of being discriminated against by proxy of one’s romantic partner.

So all you heterosexual men and lesbian women who won’t date a trans women are transphobic and partially responsible for “increased psychological and physical health problems among the trans population.”

If you encounter a self-righteous social justice activist who is shaking their finger at you, don’t forget to ask how many trans people they have dated.   If social justice activists are serious about social justice, isn’t it time for them to start dating trans people?

Witchcraft Atheism

We have seen that the type of atheism advocated by the New Atheists has become Dinosaur Atheism – a dying breed of atheism embraced mostly by old white men.  The new generation of woke atheists are instead embracing the occult – satanism, witchcraft, and paganism.  Here’s another news article, this one from Yahoo News,  that helps illustrate this:

Dakota Bracciale, a 29-year-old transgender/queer witch and co-owner of Catland Books and witch shop in Brooklyn,

There is a picture of Dakota in the Yahoo News story.

Bracciale

is pleased with the outcome of the ritual hex placed on US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in October. The curse, carried out from Catland Books, was well attended by witches, atheists ad humanists – and was followed around the country on social media.

Atheists and humanists participating in a “ritual hex.”  It figures.

Bracciale makes clear the atheistic undertone of the hex:

“The hex centres on the notion that we live in a universe of chaos, entropy, destruction, death, decay with a final ending of oblivion – scientists are telling us. So the witch does everything for themselves – there is no other help in this universe of decay and chaos.

That’s a new twist on an old New Atheist talking point.  But notice just how mean and nasty the atheist witches are:

Bracciale is “absolutely” willing to cause physical harm through a hex – “no issue with that”.

Wow.

Bracciale would have been just as pleased with the new Supreme Court Justice’s death, resignation or physical disfigurement,

Well, I can say for sure that I have never prayed for someone else to be harmed.  Engaging in a religious ritual to wish serious harm on another human being must be an atheist witch thing.

And remember how the New Atheists struggled to define what an atheist was?  Well, here they can’t seem to make up their mind as to whether witchcraft is a religion.

Social Justice Rhetoric – Another example of wild-eyed extremism

Here is a link to a public township meeting video from Canada.

Starting at about 55 seconds in, you can watch a transgender activist give a short speech that drips with the over-the-top extremism.  Here’s the relevant excerpt:

The city can also liaise with the RCMP to ensure hate crimes and homophobia related discrimination and harassment are effectively identified and prosecuted. For example, in the news recently, a trans-exclusionary radical feminist named Meghan Murphy violated the Canadian Criminal Code by inciting hate against the LGBTQ and trans community, stating, “Men are not women and trans women are not women.” In doing this… inciting this speech, I personally got her twitter account suspended, which got a lot of (pause) attention, ah, haha, and created global outcry for feminist rights and created global policy changes for social networks such as twitter and wordpress, um, and such.

However, Meghan Murphy, a Vancouver resident, still has not been prosecuted by VPD for her hate crimes. In the meantime, she has booked a hate rally at the VPL geared toward hate and transphobia.

First of all, note what is supposed to qualify as “hate speech” – “Men are not women and trans women are not women.”  Next thing you know, 2+2 =4 will be deemed hate speech by the postmodernists.

And the consequences for publicly observing reality?  She needs to be “prosecuted.”  Throw her in jail.

In the meantime, she’s “booked a hate rally.”  But in reality, she’s giving a talk at a public library.

Keep in mind that if the social activists got their way, all of this trans extremism would be mainstreamed.  If you gave a small, public talk that argued men are not women, you would be accused of spreading hate speech at a hate rally and prosecuted.  Social justice ideology so easily and quickly blends into totalitarianism.

There are many lessons here, but I’ll just go for the low hanging fruit.

So now boys have periods

One of the most amusing accusations coming from atheists and secularists is that Christians are delusional and anti-science.  It’s not that these accusations are so easily defeated; it’s that our post-Christian, secular/pagan culture increasingly embraces pseudoscientic insanity.  Ready for this?

There is now a school that teaches boys have periods as part of their sex ed:

Primary school pupils as young as eight are to be taught that ‘all genders’ have periods, according to new sex education guidance. Brighton and Hove City Council’s advice for teachers states ‘trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods’. The guidance goes on to state that education about periods should be inclusive of ‘all genders’ and ‘bins for used period products are provided in all toilets.’

Imagine sending your kid to school to have them indoctrinated like this.  And if you object?  Then you must be an eevil, alt.right, bigot.

Dawkins vs. Harris

What explains this?

harris and dawkins

Dawkins has always been the heart of New Atheism, meaning its decline and his decline are linked at the hip.

Harris, probably because of his Hollywood background/connections, is much more media savvy and branched out from New Atheism, first with meditation related stuff and now, with the “Intellectual Dark Web” stuff.  His most recent public decision to break with Patreon was a stroke of media savvy brilliance.
