I hate with a fiery passion all that is pop culture.
Not because it is unimportant… but because it should be.
Any mature adult will tell you that discussions about the economy, taxes, and foreign policy are truly some of the most important discussions we could be having.
Why? Because these things directly affect the livelihood of the American public.
And for the record, despite any anecdotal evidence you might have to the contrary….
When a grown ass adult talks about the importance of these discussions in regards to the American public’s livelihood, they are most certainly talking about the livelihood of their offspring.
Yes children, your parents do actually care about you.
But I digress…
Pop culture irritates the hell out of me because it is something that I wish I didn’t have to pay attention too. Growing up a poser punk rocker from HB I couldn’t tell you the first thing about the new Eminem album, or what Snooki named her kid.
In time however, as someone who fancies himself politically aware, I have learned to adapt.
Even though the young have literally no skin in the game, they still have a say in the direction the country is to move.
Indoctrination in the school system and destruction of the family structure aside, the young are at an extreme disadvantage when it comes to the fundamental truths of life.
Many people believe that this is the fault of technology. These people believe that since our youths are constantly connected to the world wide web they are consistently exposed to an unrelenting stream of hedonistic, fallacious nonsense.
I contend that this is the fault of the previous generation. It would not matter how much hedonistic fallacious nonsense our children were exposed to if their parents had just engrained some shred of conviction into their developing brains… but unfortunately for both their offspring and the future of our nation they haven’t…
And so I am forced to discuss topics which I find to be distasteful and uninteresting…
So… Without further adieu
He was all over the TV yesterday.
Why? Because he slapped on a pair of fake tits, changed his name and is now the hero of our generation… at least until next month when someone else takes pride in something that is far from accomplishment.
Bruce Jenner is now a woman… or at least he is posing as one.
He even made the cover of Vanity Fair Magazine accompanied by the headline “Call me Caitlyn.”
Within hours of the cover being published, his new twitter account had 1.1 million followers (Getting all of this straight from the link above)
This showcases the importance of such an event. The kids are all about it.
Importance established… Let’s think for a second
Yesterday afternoon on twitter I happened upon a tweet by a young lady who I assume to be local based on her twitter following.
This tweet caught my eye as it reminded me of an interview I listened to last week over at louderwithcrowder.com featuring Milow Yiannopoulos (known as @Nero on twitter) who is currently in the process of writing a book about “Gamer Gate.”
You see this misguided young lady’s tweet suggests that every person is born with a true identity. It is a narrative commonly found amongst those on the left who feel the need to justify what is clearly a mental illness… Transsexualism.
The idea is that even though you were born biologically a girl, your true identity (which they claim you are also born with) could be male (and vice versa.)
I thought this was very telling as the young lady who tweeted this also belongs to the “feminist” movement here in the local area.
Now this may not mean a whole hell of a lot to anyone who does not keep up on these cultural issues, however to those that do… Well, they should already see where I am going with this.
While listening to the afore mentioned interview last week I was intrigued by one bit of dialogue between Steven Crowder (the host) and Milo (the guest) on the topic of transsexualism.
Milo is a gay man, and as such one could only assume that he might have some insights into the LGBT community. So Steven asked him an interesting question regarding his position on transsexualism.
Milo proceeded to tell Steven that he had previously considered all those who claim to be “transexual” to be mentally ill. He then explained however that his opinion is slowly changing. Not because he has found new validity in the lack of scientific knowledge used to back transsexualism, but because he has found a very telling hole in the narrative of those who belong to the feminist/LGBT crowd.
You see feminists and other LGBT supporters who support things like “equality in the workplace” and sexual identity, consistently claim that gender is nothing more than a social construct.
This helps them to promote behavior in females that is detrimental not only to their own well being, but society as a whole.
However…. If gender is nothing more than a social construct… how then can anyone be born with a “true identity?”
I continue to believe that transsexualism is a mental illness.
However, to those of you out there who disagree…
Take your pick.
Either transsexualism is a mental illness and gender is nothing more than a social construct…
Or gender is not a social construct and rather something you are born with, which supports the arguments of those who claim that transexuals are just seeking out their true identity.
You can’t have it both ways…
