Creepy gov’t obsession with kids’ underpants, by Patrice Lewis. An opinion piece tying together some of the latest trends in political correctness. First, the old socialist thought that upbringing can erase natural instincts and abilities:
Boys can no longer be boys. They can’t be rough and tumble; they can’t like cars and planes and guns; they are considered evil if they scuffle and fight.
A little girl can never want to be a housewife (possibly the most loathed profession in the country, with the arguable exception of IRS employees). She must want to be a firefighter, or a lawyer, or a doctor, or an engineer, or a soldier. (Well, maybe not a soldier. Today’s social justice warriors frown on anyone being a soldier.) She is urged to “empower” herself at a young age by “exploring” her sexuality. Rather than treating her body as something special, she is urged to let herself be used by as many randy boys as she can accommodate (since, after all, Planned Murderhood stands on the sideline, eager to get rid of any “issues” that result).
Second, the gender-fluidity campaign:
In the interests of protecting the “privacy” of kids, especially from the horrible knuckle-dragging troglodytes doing the raising, parents are being kept “in the dark about the gender identity struggles of their children.”
Progressives do not want boys to be boys or girls to be girls. They want androgyny, where boys and girls are both the same in their interests, tastes, sexual exploits, mannerisms, chosen careers, physical abilities and any other standard you can think of.
Leading to a nasty side-effect of importing Muslims and third-worlders:
I don’t know why this is so trendy, but I’ll leave you with yet another creepy, eerie thought: Europe, and to a lesser extent America, is being flooded with a primitive, warrior people who aren’t interested in androgyny … but would welcome coming into an androgynous population.
Why? Because in a place where feeeeelings overcome logic and rational thought, nothing can prevent primitive warriors from killing androgynous men, and raping and subjugating androgynous women.
