By the time I heard about the cancelation of the BreadTuber known as Socialism Done Left, the controversy was already a few days old. I had never heard of the guy, but when I stumbled upon the Vice article “Leaked Racist Messages Shows “Leftist” Youtuber Isn’t” written by affirmative action hire Gita Jackson, I initially wanted to defend him.

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…)
Transsexuality vs. Feminism vs. the Radical Right
Norman Bates has been created, a mentally deranged man dressing up as mother. There are many like Robert Bloch’s character; some like Liam Suleman/Lucy Edwards, William/Gillian Jaggs, and Kayleigh-Louise Woods/Kyle Lockwood have all murdered women exactly like the character; others behave in other violent and depraved ways, like Miguel/Michelle Martinez, Kim Leverton, and Gary/Carys Cooper, who have all sexually assaulted children; still others are non-violent, but equally psychologically damaged.

We were told that the Left’s concern over gay marriage was about wanting to expand specific, concrete benefits entailed by the marriage certificate to homosexuals. Foremost amongst these benefits, at least as far as rhetoric was concerned, was hospital visitation rights. (more…)

Part 2 of 2
An Unexpected Party
The Fortean Society was founded on January 26, 1931, with a great fanfare of sounding brasses, tinkling cymbals, after-dinner speeches, and press releases. Thereafter the Society did practically nothing for six years.
English original here
Drama, auto-mutilación, y suicidio son normales para la trayectoria con los transexuales, así que la muerte de la chica-trans en potencia Joshua “Leelah” Alcorn, que se tiró delante de un camión, es menos historia que las subsecuentes reacciones de la Izquierda, que han tomado el desafío de cambiar la sociedad para que nadie como él vuelva a derramar otra lágrima-emo.
Spanish translation here
Drama, self-mutilation, and suicide are par for the course with transsexuals, so the recent death of would-be transgirl Joshua “Leelah” Alcorn, who threw himself in front of a semi truck, is less of a news story than the subsequent reactions of the Left, who have taken up his challenge to change society so nobody like him will ever shed another emo-tear.
I never had a chance to read Gavin McInnes’ article “Transphobia is Perfectly Natural,” since Thought Catalog has taken it down. (But we can read outraged reactions from around the web.) McInnes has apparently been hounded out of his job as chief creative officer of something called Rooster, which I am too unhip to have heard of.
