If you were at all sanguine about the future, I beg you will watch this video.
Yes, there are actually parents who are dumbfounded and confused when their five-year-old children don’t take to wearing fake penises, or tucking their real ones.
A watchdog group called 4thWaveNow is raising awareness online about “the ever-accelerating medical and media fascination with the phenomenon of ‘transgender children.'” This week, the group released screenshots from a private Facebook group called Parents of Transgender Children, which expose multiple conversations surrounding the practices of “packing” and “tucking” for supposedly transgender children as young as five years old.
Some conversations involve parents expressing confusion at their child’s lack of interest in prosthetic penises.
“My kid doesn’t seem that miffed about not having a penis, which frankly throws me off a bit,” one reads.
Others simply ask for recommendations for the best “age appropriate” fake penises for their young children, as well as for “stand-to-pee” (STP) devices.
It should be no surprise that it is parents, and women especially, who are driving World War T (Steve Sailer’s coinage). This being so, it is not likely that homeschooling will be a general solution from escaping the madness. A better idea is to go back to the wisdom of the ancients, like St Paul. Women’s liberation (from Reality) is a failure.
Oh, you may not agree. But just wait until they come for your kid, or your grandchild.
Item Colleges Face a Barrage of Questions About How Much They Pay Diversity Officers (Thanks to Kent Clizbe for the tip.)
Last fall the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill received a public-records request for the salaries and benefits of the chief diversity officer and her staff from a man named Connor Kurtz…The records he sought revealed salaries totaling about $700,000…
The critics point to the total compensation bound up in diversity offices — which can run into the millions — and call that spending wasteful and ineffective. What’s more, they say it’s causing tuition costs to rise…
Some argue that colleges shouldn’t pay attention to the complaints of conservative ideologues, especially those who try to spin information solely to provoke outrage…
So last year UNC officials got to work, reviewing research and commissioning an outside firm to prepare a report. It found $16.6 million in total spending on equal opportunity and diversity across the 17 UNC campuses, including $14.7 million on salaries. About half of that money was going toward compliance with federal and state laws, the report estimated.
The article recalls this tweet (salaries at UM of all the god Diversity offices).
Sacrifices to lesser gods in Rome amounted to less than this. If Diversity is such a strength, why is it that it’s so expensive and must be enforced by the rod?
An article by Simon Demeulemeester and Jeroen de Preter published in The Knack last year concerns comments by euthanasia doctors Marc Cosyns and Wim Distelmans. In response to Ivo Poppe, a nurse who admitted to killing 10 — 20 people, including his mother, Cosyns told the Belgian media that each year there are 1000 assisted deaths without request.
Cosyns only restated the data from a study published in the NEJM (April 19, 2015) indicating that 1.7% of all deaths (more than 1000) in the Flanders region of Belgium, were hastened without explicit request in 2013.
An earlier study found that 1.8% of all deaths in the Flanders region of Belgium were hastened without explicit request, in 2007, meaning that the problem has been consistent.
Now you might be thinking, “What’s the big deal, Briggs. They’re only Belgians.” And you’d have a point. But let me remind you from whence comes some of the world’s greatest beers. We’d miss it if it were gone. And now we’re going to suspect cheaper Soylent-type ingredients will be used.
Anyway, once executioners in hospitals start killing the weak and infirm here in these once-United States, there will always be consent. No accidental or non-consensual killings for us, no, sir! Everybody that gets it will have it coming.
On Tuesday, Judy Maltz reported in Haaretz that the Israeli Rabbinate, which controls conversion, marriage and divorce in Israel, is using DNA testing to verify a person’s Jewishness. Since a person who isn’t Jewish can’t marry a Jew in Israel, which has no civil marriage, the rabbinate is using the DNA test to deny people they consider non-Jews the civil right of marriage…
But the revelations about rabbis using DNA testing have a political component, too. For this is also part and parcel of a rightward turn Israel has fostered under the leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a turn that has Israel increasingly embracing ethno-nationalist policies.
And where ethno-nationalism goes, there follows the policing of bloodlines, of who is in and who is out, who is us and who is them.
We talked before about how much Israel learned from Germany and Russia, but perhaps we forgot what good students some Jews can be. I wonder if the Semites are classed as Jews, but the Turkic blood line (the Khazar converts) aren’t? I’d hate to be the guy in charge of ethnic purity. Seems like a mess to sort out.

A devout Catholic and mother of five has been asked to attend a police interview after being accused of using the wrong pronoun to describe a transgender girl.
Caroline Farrow, was contacted by officers from the Surrey force to inform her they were investigating an allegation that she had made transphobic comments on Twitter.
Mrs Farrow is being investigated for a possible hate crime under the malicious communication act, an offence that carries a maximum two-year prison sentence.
By “wrong” pronoun, the debased police of course mean correct pronoun. You may scoff at the idea of Satan and demons, but any culture that makes calling somebody the “wrong” pronoun a criminal offence is demonic.
It makes you sort of glad England is welcoming its own invasion.
