Exile in Happy Valley
Maybe you missed it, but there is a second terrifying virus spreading like spilt milk across the media zeitgeist. A hip new mental illness plaguing that precious resource known as teenage girls. All across the country our precious flowers are defiling themselves with butchy hairdos and weird pronouns. It’s called Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria and it’s coming to a town near you! Everything will be peachy fucking keen until bam! Suddenly all your daughters friends will start changing. They’ll stop wearing dresses and talking about Korean boybands, and just when you pick up on the signs of gender degeneration, zap! They’ve got your daughter too. Brenda will become Brandon and start juicing up on testosterone and standing up to pee. It’s a terrible disease in the form of a fad and it was all started by dangerous online faggots like me. And we would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for those meddling heroes on the Intellectual Dark Web.
This all started with a book and a misbegotten if well intentioned campaign to censor it. Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. The title reads like an early nineties episode of Donahue and the crap inside it is at least twice as vapid. The sad thing is nobody would have even heard of this intellectually shallow piece of tabloid psychology if it wasn’t briefly banned from Target.
That stupid move by the trigger happy Karens of cancel culture put this piece of crap and the imbecile who wrote it, a desperate Wall Street Journal opinion writer named Abigail Shrier, on the map, from Tucker Carlson to Joe Rogen, playing the role of free speech martyr while the conversation has completely shifted away from the quality of her argument that teenage girls are turning trans just to be cool. This is one of the many reasons I fucking hate censorship of any kind. It all too often achieves the goal of turning imbeciles into cause celebres.
A single 90 question survey. That is the basis of Shrier’s entire goddamn tirade. A single solitary 90 question survey of parents from three openly anti-trans blogs. That’s it! The survey wasn’t even properly pier reviewed. Just a bunch of frightened bigots bitching about their crazy kids. This thing shouldn’t be banned, it should be sold as toilet paper near gender neutral bathrooms at the airport. Like most transphobic tirades, it pretends to be all about protecting the children without so much as asking for their opinion, and like most transphobic tirades, it feeds into the historically lazy notion that third genders are some kind of modern anomaly.
If anything, the gender binary is the anomaly. The notion of only two genders defined purely by exterior genitalia is only a few hundred years old. Its “science” comes from the same well informed era that brought us leach therapy and cocaine soda. The recent awakening of transgender and non-binary identities isn’t a fad, it’s a return to nature before we were all pulverized stupid by Abrahamic dogma and progressive social engineering. Nearly every culture on the map had a place for genders that didn’t conform with gonads. This doesn’t mean we were all treated well, but our tribal elders were at least wise enough not to question our existence. Now the science is finally catching up to thousands of years of briefly subjugated culture and we’re the child mutilating heretics? Well pardon my French, ladies and gentlemen, but you can choke on my man-clit.
