This is a bit oddDecember 19, 2019 Tim WorstallFeminism18 CommentsCarrie Marshall is a bloke. That at least, is the insistence from the judge in Maya Forstater’s employment tribunal thingie. Odd, but there we are. previousOK, so we’re not exactly Trumpists herenextAnother excellent hack 18 thoughts on “This is a bit odd” Rob December 19, 2019 at 9:54 am If I have a legal certificate saying I am a rabbit, then it is not part of a democratic society to point out that, despite a ludicrous piece of paper, I am not actually a rabbit. This judge needs to be fired immediately. She (of course, had to be female) is basically enforcing a totalitarian view of what the State believes can and cannot be said, merely through State power. Jussi December 19, 2019 at 10:17 am In a democratic society, if many deranged nutters insist calling a dog a cat and even have a official government document saying that is how it is now, a dog is actually a cat, then I will still tell them to fuck off you’re wrong and deluded. Mr Ecks December 19, 2019 at 10:42 am I would bet that if the point –that what is happening is Marxist scum trying to enshrine their subjectivist evil into law–was used in Court that would have a very good chance of overturning the trannies and their Marxist masters applecart. Arguing against “feelings” needs something unbeatable–like being used to further the evil aims of a mass-murdering cult–to stop it in its tracks. Jollygreenman December 19, 2019 at 10:50 am Oh, well That lays the ground for the commentators of the next Olympics. Nobody will be allowed to comment on all the trannies standing their collecting all the womens medals. Karma is a bitch! MC December 19, 2019 at 11:02 am Fuck you reality! says the law. The nonsense of gender trumps the actuality of sex. Offence is real, biology is not. A timely reminder that a Tory government and the prospect of Brexit does not mean the war is over… Steve December 19, 2019 at 12:09 pm Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to. BraveFart December 19, 2019 at 12:24 pm The judge needs to suffer the fate of alleged witches tied to a ducking stool to test her understanding of the truth. Instructive that this is an employment case. It’s generally accepted in legal circles that employment judges are the thickest in the legal profession dearieme December 19, 2019 at 2:15 pm I’ve just stumbled across “French Minister of Ecological and Inclusive Transition, Élisabeth Borne”. Is she in charge of hacking off goolies? Ironman December 19, 2019 at 2:43 pm I self-identity as Chris Hemsworth. And if any fucker here says I’m not I’ll have him, sorry, THEM, right out of a job. Flubber December 19, 2019 at 3:01 pm Steve, that Dalrymple quote is absolutely spot on. So much of what the modern left does is simply to demoralise us. Steve December 19, 2019 at 3:30 pm Flubber – the Enemy wants you to believe the situation is hopeless, but if it was, they wouldn’t need to spend so much time and effort on propaganda Pcar December 19, 2019 at 10:28 pm @BraveFart Thicker than immigration “judges”? Bloke in North Dorset December 19, 2019 at 10:44 pm JK Rowling is currently getting it on Twitter for this: See new Tweets Conversation J.K. Rowling @jk_rowling Dress however you please. Call yourself whatever you like. Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you. Live your best life in peace and security. But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill 12:57 PM · Dec 19, 2019· My emotions are suffering cognitive dissonance. PF December 20, 2019 at 12:21 am BiND I don’t normally like reading Kirkup, but he was possibly on the right track with this: https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2019/12/in-just-a-few-words-jk-rowling-has-changed-the-transgender-debate/ PF December 20, 2019 at 12:39 am That twitter feed is presumably “typical”? In that, most of those having a crack at her appear to have completely failed to understand that she was talking about sex rather than gender. As a platform, it does seem to be one of the lowest common denominators. wat dabney December 20, 2019 at 8:38 am Do you remember when we used to laugh at the Yanks with their Scopes Monkey Trial. Pingback: So Much For Science – Longrider Bloke in North Dorset December 20, 2019 at 9:36 am PF, I don’t normally like reading Kirkup, but he was possibly on the right track with this: Agreed. The issue isn’t trans women, its trans activists, you can’t discuss and debate with those who have a political agenda. I’ve said it before, there’s lots of trans women out there who just get on with their lives. They were treated sympathetically and politely, they are the ones who have lost out by this political action. Here’s one that’s worth listening to: Canadian editor Jonathan Kay talks to Corinna Cohn, a trans woman and Indianapolis-based software developer who disagrees with Twitter’s policy of banning users who “deadname” trans people and, more generally, doesn’t believe she is obliged to support the causes associated with the Social Justice movement just because Social Justice Warriors support trans rights. And this is in my Triggernometery podcast feed, though I haven’t listened you and probably won’t, I’ve heard enough of this debate to have made up my mind: Rose of Dawn: Trans Activists Don’t Speak for Me 15 Dec, 19:10 Rose of Dawn (@Rose_Of_Dawn) is a YouTuber who explores and critiques the modern trans community and trans activism.
