Insanity & Doom Update XVI

Item When we remove the labels that we give each other, we find that our connections outweigh our divisions.

The British Military has gone from Trafalgar and Roark’s Drift to this. Probably inevitable when they rely on the the US Army to be their fighting force.

Item How taming cows and horses sparked inequality across the ancient world (thanks to Brian Bushen for the tip):

…This rise of the superrich has economists, politicians, and citizens alike wondering how much inequality societies can—or should—accept. But economic inequality has deep roots. A study published this week in Nature concludes that its ancient hotbed was the Old World: Societies there tended to be less equal than those in the New World, likely because of the use of draft animals….

The team worked with archaeologists around the world to collect data from 62 sites in North America and Eurasia dating from before 8000 B.C.E. to about 1750 C.E. (They also included one modern hunter-gatherer group, the !Kung San in Africa.) From the distribution of house sizes, they calculated each site’s Gini coefficient, a standard measure of inequality. Gini coefficients range from zero, indicating that each person has exactly the same amount of wealth, to one, representing a society in which a single person has all the wealth

Lord spare us from the scientism of false quantifications. And from the obsessions over inequality.

Item Canada rejects Christian couple for adoption

During the home study, the social worker who managed their case asked them about their beliefs regarding homosexuality. The couple said they held Biblical views on marriage and sexuality but would unconditionally love and respect a child questioning his or her sexuality or gender…

But in March, Catholic Social Services told the couple that Child and Family Services had additional questions for them about homosexuality based on their answers during the home study.

“Biblical principles are the foundation of our home,” wrote the couple in reply to the social worker, according to an affidavit submitted to the court. “As such we believe that homosexuality is wrong. …[this ellipsis original] Gender and sexuality are determined at birth, and God has given parameters for people to enjoy the gift of sex—within the confines of marriage between a man and a woman.”

They were rejected, as the headline says. Maybe it slipped by too quickly, but they were rejected by Catholic Social Services. Catholic. How many bishops have surrendered to the world, only God knows.

There’s a bonus item in the link! Follow to the end of the story to…

Item Military operation

The Pentagon paid for a sex change surgery for a transgender military member this week.

The head of the Defense Health Agency signed a waiver for the surgery on Monday, and it took place on Tuesday, according to Defense Department spokeswoman Dana White. She said the surgery was approved because the service member had already begun a “sex-reassignment course of treatment,” and so the surgery was deemed medically necessary. The surgery was done in a private hospital and paid for by the military’s health coverage.

You cannot change your sex; therefore, it is impossible for there to be such a thing as “sex change surgery”. There can be maiming and intentional wounding by greedy ghouls, but that’s it. It cannot ever be “medically necessary” for a maiming. Our culture’s “experts” have lost their minds.

Item On November 28, the Government will offer a formal apology to LGBTQ2 Canadians in the House – for the persecution & injustices they have suffered, and to advance together on the path to equality & inclusion.

The link is a tweet from Canada’s own Justine Trudeau.

It’s only partly illegal now, but I predict it will soon be fully illegal in Canada to say things like “sodomy is a sin”. Merely quoting the Bible could land you a jail sentence.

Item Girl Scouts warn parents about forcing kids to hug relatives for the holidays

Girl Scouts of the USA issued a warning to parents this holiday season, asking them to think twice before forcing their daughters to hug relatives at gatherings.

“Think of it this way, telling your child that she owes someone a hug either just because she hasn’t seen this person in a while or because they gave her a gift can set the stage for her questioning whether she ‘owes’ another person any type of physical affection when they have bought her dinner or done something else seemingly nice for her later in life,” reads the post on the Girl Scouts’ website.

Hug a government employee instead.


  1. Feminism is cancer. Progressivism is brain cancer. Radical corrective surgery is called for, before the cancer spreads to a terminal degree. Followed, of course, by a course of radiation therapy. They do wonders with “cyber knife” treatments these days. The patient will afterwards require extensive physical therapy to recover functions impaired by both the cancer and the treatments.

    As groups and governments continue to allow the dilution or elimination of Christian thought, you have to ask, “Cui bono?”. What group(s) gains with the loss of Christian morals?

    The British army link doesn’t work.

  4. Gary

    If the Gini Coefficient tells us anything, it’s that inequality is a fact of nature. Attempts to legislate against nature always fail. The bad news, of course, is that reality doesn’t stop the few people in power (oh, the irony) from trying to foist their schemes on the many not in power and causing much damage in the process.

  5. Ye Olde Statistician

    It must be a comfort to the tormented slaves of the Comanches or the prisoners of the Aztecs whose beating hearts were torn from their living chests that at least their domiciles were not that much smaller than their conquerors’.

  6. One more from the “Military Operation” source which conservatives–and my allies among the TERFs (transgender-exclusionary radical feminists)–will appreciate:

    All aboard the politically correct trainNew York City’s Metro Transportation Authority (MTA) is… bowing to activists who are intent on removing binary gender references from modern language…the MTA no longer allows announcers or conductors to address passengers as “ladies and gentlemen.” A memo sent in early November directed staff to use words like “passengers,” “riders,” or “everyone.” In July, Transport for London announced it had scrapped “ladies and gentlemen” in favor of gender-neutral language to make everyone feel welcome.

    We are approaching peak trans but have not yet arrived; the insanity continues, unabated.
