This blog received a comment last night to a past post that needed comment approval. Because its lazy assumptions and lack of critical thinking figure greatly in the tidal wave of continued Trans Trenders, I'm releasing it here:
- She's a she, as her trans name implies (ethan) and the fact she's commenting here.
- A teacher or professor just discussed the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis which she failed to understand. Ethan honey, you'd do better to read your Barthes and filter transgenderism through Barthes myths, utilizing the gay/lesbian history/philology/narratives etc transgenderism stole, then drained the blood and guts from-."Myth is a second-order semiotic system. It takes an already constituted sign and turns it into a signifier"...."Myth is a metalanguage. It turns language into a means to speak about itself. However, it does this in a repressive way, concealing the construction of signs"...."Myths differ from other kinds of signifiers. For one thing, they are never arbitrary. They always contain some kind of analogy which motivates them. In contrast to ideas of false consciousness, myths don’t hide anything. Instead, myths inflect or distort particular images or signs to carry a particular meaning. Myth doesn’t hide things, it distorts them. It alienates the history of the sign".
- She's lazy. Two minutes on here (30 seconds if actively seeking) and my female sex would be determined.
- She's REALLY lazy, 2 seconds and without even fully typing my name and she could have determined my name:
When fear deafens you to the voice of reason till your ears bleed, turning knowledge into your enemy and truth your foe, the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
