I’m a blond bimbo girl, in a fantasy world
Dress me up, make it tight, I’m your dolly!
We live in an era of apparently rampant transsexualism. The media insist upon spotlighting various gender-benders and forcing them down the throat of a captive audience, at which point vinegar-drinking moral guardians insist that the captive audience reiterates the lies (more…)
Gender Reveal Parties: The Real Domestic Terrorism
I’d been vaguely and reluctantly aware of the term “gender reveal party” for years, and without bothering to look into it, I always presumed it was some wacky sort of shindig that trannies threw when they wanted to expose their shiny new $100,000 surgical cybernetic genitals to their friends, family, clergy, therapists, nieces, nephews, probation officers, and meth dealers. (more…)
Gender Psychosis: Insanity and Sexual Identity
Pine Lake, Georgia: Obnoxious Books, 2020
One of the strengths of this new collection of short pieces about today’s sexual confusions is that the author has no qualifications for writing them. Qualifications for writing about sex go mainly to the sources of our confusion. Thanks to an overabundance of experts, (more…)
I was at one of my Twelve Step meetings the other day, and as happens to all such groups sooner or later, they are going through their “God is sexist” moment.
In case you don’t know, all the Twelve Step groups – Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous, and a host of others – are “God-based” programs. (more…)
What would politics be without sex scandals? Everyone knows lawmakers often engage in lurid affairs and try to keep their private lives out of the public eye. When they get caught, it’s front-page news and red meat for late-night comedy.
The latest political sex scandal is different from the past ones, however. It doesn’t feature a powerful man frequenting high-end hookers or jet-setting off with a hot young staffer. (more…)
The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race and Identity
New York: Bloomsbury Publishing, 2019
I discovered Douglas Murray when he was interviewed by the Hoover Institute’s Peter Robinson. What struck me about Murray was that he used phrases found in Counter-Currents articles. (more…)
Ten Questions for Radical Environmentalist Derrick Jensen, Part I
Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)
Derrick Jensen, the hardcore and prolific Green activist, is easily one of the most interesting public intellectuals of our time. His willingness to take ideas to their logical end point – and make no apology for it – keeps him from being easily categorized. (more…)

2. A Will to Nothingness: The Essence of Leftist Metaphysics
We are now in a position to step back from these observations and draw some general conclusions about the metaphysics of Leftist ideology. I trust the reader understands, however, that I am identifying the metaphysics that underlies Leftist ideology. (more…)
Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)
Metaphysics is the science of what is real. It is the most fundamental branch of philosophy; other philosophical ideas are derived from or based upon metaphysical convictions. For example, the Epicurean principle that pleasure is the highest good follows from its materialism and rejection of belief in an afterlife. However, it is also possible to speak of metaphysics outside of the context of philosophical systems. (more…)
You’re probably all too aware that June is Pride Month.
Everywhere you go, every time you log into social media, and certainly any time you watch TV, you’re browbeaten to celebrate Pride Month. Rainbow flags adorn bars, hotels, and government buildings. The flag may even adorn the products you buy at the store. Every corporate entity makes sure to wish its customers a happy Pride Month. (more…)
The Left’s Cardboard Castle
Ryan T. Anderson
When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment
New York: Encounter Books, 2018
“At the heart of the transgender moment are radical ideas about the human person – in particular, that people are what they claim to be, regardless of contrary evidence.” — Ryan T. Anderson
TERF is an acronym for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.” It is also a slur. Unlike most political slurs, it is an accurate description of the people that the acronym describes.
TERF names the subset of radical feminists that opposes the inclusion of transsexual men (aka “transwomen”) in the category “woman.” Some radical feminists welcome men who believe they are women, and many others do not. TERF names the latter and contrasts them to the former. (more…)
The Adults Left the Room a Long Time Ago:
The Transsexual Issue
A week ago, I flew from my West Coast abode to a gym equipment and fitness symposium in Washington, DC. My lodging was provided by my older half-brother, who is raising a batch of teenage girls attending high school in northern Virginia’s expensive ‘burbs. After dinner, in his study, he explained that he was starting to become aware of transsexuals. In the current high school social scene, there are a great many. (more…)
