Good morning, Clown World!
What’s going on today in liberal democracy which we all know is the greatest and most glorious form of government ever devised by the genius of man?
Hermione Granger of the Harry Potter movies is all grown up now. The West is being transformed by a whole generation of spoiled, self-absorbed Millennial White women.
“(CNN)Emma Watson has said she prefers to call herself “self-partnered” rather than single as she approaches her 30th birthday.
The actor and activist, whose birthday is in April, said she initially did not understand the “fuss” that surrounded the milestone. …
She told British Vogue: “If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you’re not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you’re still figuring things out… There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety.
“Speaking of how she had never believed the “‘I’m happy single’ spiel,” she added: “It took me a long time, but I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered.”
It’s a safe bet that a civilization with Emma Watson’s values is going to run into problems. After all, feminism is an unproven experiment. It remains to be seen how that model of society will pan out in the long run as women cast aside the duties and responsibilities of family life in favor of self expression and flexing their rights through social justice activism.
The same is true of mass immigration, political correctness and multiculturalism, which were also a product of the social revolutions of the late 20th century, and which have declared that our nations and their founding stock are as antiquated as the patriarchy and white supremacy and need to be remedied by an endless tidal wave of Third World immigration.
Meanwhile in the Netherlands, progressive liberals are creating transgender crosswalks to accommodate all the thousands of new genders which were created a few years ago:
“A Dutch town has become the first in Europe to set up a multicoloured zebra crossing dedicated to transgender people.
The pink, blue and white coloured zebra crossing is located in the town of Almere, in the province of Flevoland in the Netherlands.
The pink stands for girls, blue for boys and white for people, who do not align themselves to either sex. Next to it there is also a rainbow zebra crossing dedicated to the gay community.
Social Democrat politician Jerzy Soetekouw said: ‘In Almere, everyone is free to be who they want to be. This is reinforced by the zebra crossings.’
One user posted: ‘It is a joke, I thought they wanted to be treated like everyone else.’
Another said: ‘In this case, I want a new zebra crossing for heterosexuals.’ “
Cisgendered heteronormative White males are not allowed in the white space in the crosswalk which is reserved for gender non-conforming people.
The pink stands for girls, blue for boys and white for people, who do not align themselves to either sex.
Unfortunately, I don’t think this crosswalk in the Netherlands has properly taken into account the race dynamics of how whiteness works between White trans women and trans women of color who occupy a higher rank in the social hierarchy of the progressive stack:
Literally cannot believe I got shoved out of the way by a white trans woman telling ne how we need to amplify the voices of trans women of color.— Generic Soy Milk (@EmilyGorcenski) November 5, 2019
Wait yes I can, because that’s literally how whiteness works every day.
As a trans woman of color, getting stiffarmed by a white trans person going off about how we need to elevate trans voices of color is basically the sine qua non of modern trans activism. Now they’ll engage in some performative learning.— Generic Soy Milk (@EmilyGorcenski) November 5, 2019
Ugh and now they’ve account deleted so I’m going to look like the bad guy for gently suggesting to be more mindful of race dynamics.— Generic Soy Milk (@EmilyGorcenski) November 5, 2019
In the UK, movie theaters are banning “ladies and gentlemen” which are offensive terms now to trans activists and replacing them with “gender neutral terminology.”
“U.K. theaters will soon be safe spaces from phrases such as ‘ladies and gentlemen’ and a variety of appearance-based compliments under new guidelines published by the Equity actor’s union, according to reports.
Policies are being implemented to foster a more welcoming environment for LGBT performers or audience members who may not identify as male or female.
Venues are being urged to introduce “gender neutral terminology for collective calls, both front of house and backstage,” according to the Sunday Times.
“Last night the National Theatre, which supported Equity in producing the guide, said that it was still using ‘ladies and gentlemen’ in some of its announcements but would make it a priority to phase the words out.”
“Audiences will no longer hear the words, ‘ladies and gentlemen’, while performers should not have ‘backhanded compliments’ or be described as ‘brave’, under new gender-neutral guidelines from actors’ union, Equity.
Published last week, the advice is aimed at people and venues working with LGBT performers.
Campaigners for LGBT rights say that such phrases as ‘ladies and gentlemen’ exclude people who do not identify as male or female, but rather as non-binary, such as singer Sam Smith.
Following the publication of the guide, the National Theatre pledged to phase out ‘ladies and gentlemen’, while the Royal Shakespeare Company said it would, ‘strive to create environments which welcome and support trans people and people who identify their gender as fluid’.
Meanwhile Nica Burns, co-owner of Nimax Theatre, said: ‘Coming to the theatre is a shared and communal experience in one single auditorium and we want to please our audience and give them a great evening. We wouldn’t want anyone to feel offended or annoyed.’
It wouldn’t be nice to offend anyone.
Therefore, we should offend the majority of the population by deconstructing the very idea that men and women exist. It’s not like the opinions of those people matter anyway.
