Not In Fact An Optimal Situation

It was, like, so awesome.” 

Or, “Woman with mental health problems craves validation from other people’s eight-year-olds, whom she manipulates, seemingly with impunity.”

Readers may wish to devise captions of their own. 

Update

Via the comments, and somewhat related, this illustration of ideological capture.  

And so, a woman who has been raped and is understandably uneasy about cross-dressing men venturing into female-only intimate spaces, including changing rooms, showers, and rape support groups, is patronised and scolded – at length, on her own doorstep, by a female police officer - for not believing that “trans women are women.” And the police officer, this rambling fool, the one doing the patronising, is the one who claims to be offended. On behalf of dysmorphic and autogynephile men. “You’ve got in your head that a trans woman is not a woman. You need to educate yourself,” says she.

In another context, it could pass for black comedy.

Also, open thread. Share ye links and bicker.

That. How the hell did we get here so quickly?

You sort of have to wonder at what point, precisely, parents agreed to have their children treated in this way and subjected to such demands. Were I a parent, I’m not sure I’d appreciate my eight-year-old child being used, daily, as a prop in someone else’s needy and irresolvable psychodrama. I think I’d regard it as a serious overstepping of boundaries.

And remember, kiddies, you must tell the bearded man he looks like a princess.

It's the triple pig rings (or so it appears) in her nose that's so awesome.

It is still relatively early over here and sometimes it takes a spell to take in the overnight idiocy from around the globe (not just the theatre).

BTW, the fluff gives the Jaffa Cake a certain je ne sais quoi* not found with the store bought ones.

The last vestige of sanity at the Atlantic died with editor Michael Kelly. After he was killed in Iraq, the leftists finished transforming the magazine into just another propaganda organ.

That.

David

I thought the “teacher” was a child.

Well, in terms of the implied adult-child dynamic - and specifically, a teacher-pupil dynamic - it’s not, I think, ideal, though as seen in the links upthread, it’s pretty much a default, a signature of the type. And the kind of neediness on display – from the supposed adult in the room - doesn’t fill one with great confidence. In much the same way that if a teacher of small children were dysmorphic in some other regard – say, in terms of their weight – and insisted that the class refer to them, continually, as being too fat, when in reality they are worryingly thin - and directed them to “correct” any children who noticed otherwise - one might find this a little… odd. And rather inapt.

Some good stuff there, thanks. Especially a video on NetZero bs via TRIGGERnometry, which looks interesting.

Akshullly...it really wasn't all that quick. Some of us have tried to bring attention to this sort of nonsense and similar related for decades but were dismissed as needing psychological help. Who's crazy now?

Bah...meant to say, unfortunately the original video you linked was "oopsed" when I tried to play it. Thus I weant down that interesting rabbit hole.

Indeed. The thing is, she's at base not unattractive. I could not sit through much of that because at base, take out the pig rings and slim her down to her appropriate, God-intended size..ok even leave a few extra pounds for the...uh...well she looks, especially in the eyes, like an ex-girlfriend I once had. It is incredibly sad what we are doing to a generation. And have done to a less extent to a previous generation as well.

Well, OK, it is nice, but I've been to Edinburgh and wouldn't call it the "best".

Something I've noticed about these twits (like this teacher) is way too much facial movement. Compare to anyone ever interviewed on a news show (even the women) or anyone you know. The twit's faces are wildly gyrating. If the face was arms, it would be not merely talking with their hands it would be wild gesticulating, arm waving, fist pumping. WTF is going on there. I think it indicates something about their internal state.

Alex

ccscientist: if I had to hazard a guess, it would be because at least subconsciously they’re expecting at any moment that someone comes in, tells them that they desperately need help, and takes them for a badly-needed psych evaluation.

pst314

Become? When have they not been?

As far as I know it is only recently that the police have become monitors and enforcers of ideological conformity.

way too much facial movement

It's the cognitive dissonance. Like microexpressions. Remember all this trans stuff is just a self-destructive coping mechanism for deeper-rooted trauma and on some level they know that. They know what they're saying is a lie and they can't hide it.

David

That is actually blood-boiling and creepy.

It’s quite remarkable. As I said somewhere on Twitter, it has a through-the-looking-glass quality.

A woman who has been raped and is, understandably, uneasy about cross-dressing men venturing into female-only intimate spaces, including changing rooms, showers, and rape support groups, is patronised and scolded – at length, on her own doorstep, by a female police officer - for not believing that “trans women are women.” And the police officer, this rambling fool, the one doing the patronising, is the one who claims to be offended. On behalf of dysmorphic and autogynephile men.

“You’ve got in your head that a trans woman is not a woman. You need to educate yourself,” says she.

In another context, it could pass for black comedy.

Daniel: yes, and when every word from your mouth is a lie, your face can't keep up. ahahahaha

pst314

That is actually blood-boiling and creepy.

I'm curious: Would it have been an arrestable offense for me to tell the officer that she was a fascist goon, that I didn't want to hear any more of her lies, and that she should f*** off while I got on with my day, and then shut the door in her face?

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Farnsworth M Muldoon

I think it is just because they are poor mimics they exaggerate what they think they see in real women, same phenomenon as the generally grotesque apparel, hair, and makeup.

I have to think this guy is a piss take, though. He has to know, not to stereotype, but if he comes on to a 'Bama football player or drunken frat guy he is likely to wind up dealt with not unlike a tent peg. I don't think the Flowers of the South in the sororities are going to put up with that crap either other than as a joke.

Hong Kong administration has a covid vaccination booking website which is, apart from anything else, incredibly badly designed and verbose. However, this example of bureaucratic joined-up thinking caught my eye:

It is not mandatory for registrant(s) to provide the personal data as required in this registration. However, if registrant(s) do not provide such personal data, OGCIO will be unable to process the booking request.
