The most important book I have read about use of media and public relations to manipulate public opinion is Toxic Sludge Is Good for You. If you are not familiar with this book, trust me, it is worth the read. Essentially, the book details how powerful interests manipulate the media to get you to smoke cigarettes even though they kill you, get unhealthy cosmetic surgery, and support fracking. It’s about how to Jedi Mind Trick a populace into thinking porn is awesome, women are objects, and Real Women have penises.
The Transgender Movement has done a remarkable job to convincing you that Toxic Sludge is Good for You. They’ve done an amazing job in 20 years, by coattailing on the movement for gay and lesbian rights and spinning a woman’s reticence to share private intimate space like a locker room with a man with a penis as bigoted and hateful. In Maryland, the latest Toxic Sludge we are being force-fed comes in the form of Senate Bill 449, the Fairness for All Marylanders (Except Women) Act.
Here is the Toxic Sludge: “GENDER IDENTITY” MEANS A GENDER–RELATED IDENTITY, APPEARANCE, EXPRESSION, OR BEHAVIOR OF AN INDIVIDUAL REGARDLESS OF THE INDIVIDUAL’S ASSIGNED SEX AT BIRTH.”
Mmmmmmm, that’s some tasty circular definition!
Many of us have talked ad nauseum for years about how this definition is sexist and anti-feminist. Indeed, I and others have personally communicated our concerns to anti-feminist activists Dana Beyer and Sharon Brackett, as well as Senator Rich Madaleno, for years. However, these transwomen and men chose to ignore the input of Feminist activists, deciding instead to brand Women as bigots for our resistance to the idea that gender – an oppressive social construct – is in any way connected to one’s sex.
Funnily enough, I have heard from multiple sources that Transgender Advocates now have to offer an amendment to accommodate concerns around sex-segregated facilities – because, it turns out, Women aren’t bigots for not wanting to undress in front of bepenised people at the gym.
If you live in Maryland and are inclined, the Senate Judicial Proceedings will hear testimony on this bill on Tuesday, February 26. Tell your Senator that you don’t have a gender, and demanding “equality” for a fictional class of humans at the expense of an oppressed group (hello Women) is wrong.
Just Say No To Gender!
Or eat the Toxic Sludge.
