An Assult on Language Brutalizes us All

Follow up to An Experiment Gone too Far or Child Abuse...

I posted this piece in a few different places and the over all opinion was a majority who felt what these parents did was a form a child abuse, but more than that was almost an anger at how dare these parents and the school subject their child via association to assassination's of linguistic pragmatism. The other dominant, was the question of whether or not the story was true. You tell me:

True or false?

True or false?

True or false?

True or false?

True or false?



  1. So then are you saying that the language thing didn't happen, but you are making a point about messing with kids' minds?

  2. The "transitioning" of 5 and 6 year old kids IS CHILD ABUSE.

  3. It is an assault on language because we are forced to live in an Orwellian fantasy world not of our own making. Males really aren't female, and we intuitively know this. Still, people are harassed for calling males "she" instead of "he".

    This is an excellent article by an insightful writer. Having to toe the politically correct line that the "gender" police force on us feels like I have to disconnect from my rational mind.

    We Are All Winston Smith Now

    "Among the most important themes explored in Orwell’s 1984 is that of language and its relation to oppression.

    One of the most compelling moments in that book describes the protagonist, Winston Smith, realizing that the most valuable freedom of all is the freedom to tell the truth.

    Later on, he is tortured for the thought he had—the idea that freedom means the ability to tell the truth, to be able to say that two plus two equals four. His torturer, hired by the state to break his will, seizes upon this idea:

    “Only the disciplined mind can see reality, Winston. You believe that reality is something objective, external, existing in its own right. You also believe that the nature of reality is self-evident. When you delude yourself into thinking that you see something, you assume that everyone else sees the same thing as you. But I tell you, Winston, that reality is not external. Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else. Not in the individual mind, which can make mistakes, and in any case soon perishes: only in the mind of the Party, which is collective and immortal. Whatever the Party holds to be the truth, is truth. It is impossible to see reality except by looking through the eyes of the Party. That is the fact that you have got to relearn, Winston. It needs an act of self-destruction, an effort of the will. You must humble yourself before you can become sane.’

    He paused for a few moments, as though to allow what he had been saying to sink in.

    ‘Do you remember,’ he went on, ‘writing in your diary, “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four”?’

    ‘Yes,’ said Winston.

    O’Brien held up his left hand, its back towards Winston, with the thumb hidden and the four fingers extended.

    ‘How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?’


    ‘And if the party says that it is not four but five–then how many?’


    The word ended in a gasp of pain. The needle of the dial had shot up to fifty-five. The sweat had sprung out all over Winston’s body. The air tore into his lungs and issued again in deep groans which even by clenching his teeth he could not stop. O’Brien watched him, the four fingers still extended. He drew back the lever. This time the pain was only slightly eased.

    ‘How many fingers, Winston?’


    The needle went up to sixty.

    ‘How many fingers, Winston?’

    ‘Four! Four! What else can I say? Four!’

    - 1984, George Orwell

  4. "I’ve now asked a number of people making it to talk to me about what it means. Specifically, I’ve asked them what “woman” means, in this sentence. I’ve gotten the same answer repeatedly from trans advocates:

    “A woman is a person who identifies as a woman.”

    This is a statement that is literally devoid of content; a semantic nothing. When one identifies “as a woman,” what is one identifying with?

    When I have asked this question, the answers change drastically depending on the person I am speaking to. Sometimes, I am told of boys who longed to have “the feeling of a hole between my thighs being filled” and who insist on surgery to correct their feelings of bodily wrongness (even when told that girls don’t feel a “hole” where their vaginas are), or who believed that a vagina, being cleft, would enable them to do the splits in a way their scrotum would not (just in case you’re reading this, V, splits are easier for girls because of their ligaments–not their vulvas).

    Other times, I’ve heard of people feeling forced out by imposed sex roles. “I always empathized more with women.” “I have a softer side and abhor violence.” “I think I was supposed to be a dad, not a mom, because of the way I interact with my child.” Many of these people profess to have little or no actual genital dysphoria, and are upset at the idea that such dysphoria is considered necessary to change sex on government forms and so forth.

    In other words, when someone says “trans women are women,” they may be saying one of several things. It can be, for instance, a statement that means “trans women have female brains.” In this instance, “trans women are women” is being used cover for a much more controversial statement, one that forces the person saying it to agree with the notion that there is “brain sex,” a badly outmoded and anti-feminist idea.

    Other times, “trans women are women” means “trans women feel they fit in better with women’s social roles.” Again, this uses a deceptively simple four-word sentence to cover a much more problematic truth.

    “Trans women are women” is a statement that means a hundred different things to a hundred different people, and it all hinges on this question: what does it mean to identify as a woman? Simply saying that there is only one answer to this question (no matter what that answer is) will yield accusations of transphobia and cause in-fighting. So the only safe statement—since more clear and unambiguous statements will lead to disagreement and strife—is the four-word mantra, “trans women are women.”

  5. Transgender activists have mastered double think.

    And therein lies the real lesson of all three works. The goal of the torturers, in all cases, was not simply to urge the profession of belief. The ideal party member, in Orwell’s 1984, is capable of a rather neat mental trick known as doublethink.

    When a person doublethinks, they simultaneously believe something to be true and not true. The government in 1984 tells its citizens, over and over, that “war is peace,” and “freedom is slavery.” This enables editors like Winston to more readily change history, since people are more likely to accept being at war with a nation one day and at peace the next, for instance, if they believe that the two concepts aren’t really all that different.

    Double think is the acceptance of or mental capacity to accept contrary opinions or beliefs at the same time, especially as a result of political indoctrination.

    This is another excellent article,

  6. "Still, people are harassed for calling males "she" instead of "he"."

    That's backwards. People are harassed for rightly calling males he and not she.

  7. anon 12:57 but the party would refer to collective society saying one's gender can not be opposite one's sex. Winston Smith would be transgender people standing up and saying- hey, we exist no matter how much you deny it.'

  8. The reason some trans folk go all postal is because of doublethink.
    If they scream loud and violently enough,we'll be forced to believe they've...snap...changed their birth gender.

    And really, you might think you're passing but most people can tell something is off. Way off.

  9. Cole Jacob Davis: you can not "be" the opposite gender (socially constructed acceptable behavior that ultimately oppresses females) because you were never indoctrinated as par of that gender you passionately "identify" as. All you have is some vague third-person view, evidenced by the gender caricatures that transgender/transsexual people become.

    Existing does no make the every word of transgender/transsexual people infallible nor does it grant them protection from criticism, not when they are obsessed with gaslighting and obfuscating basic human biological realities.

  10. That's backwards. People are harassed for rightly calling males he and not she.

    Yes, thanks for pointing it out..

    Silly mistake and was late..

  11. RE: All you have is some vague third-person view, evidenced by the gender caricatures that transgender/transsexual people become.

    Right on. Trans males/females merely ape the characteristics of whatever gender they've never been, going over the edge.

  12. We all chose how to be, and I chose to be a kind, gentle, quiet, studious, gentleman who loves the arts, theatre, design, helping those in need, loves God, bringing people to Christ, and teaching people diversity to accept trans guys as trans guys without demanding we take horrible hormones that will kill us. We are still trans guys- not men- trans- I don't believe the hype. My caricature is classy gentleman. Also Saint Francis

    1. Precisely. "My caricature." You are attempting to be a caricature of what you think a man is. Why don't you teach people to accept that females don't need to take hormones to behave in ways designated by society for males? That would be progressive.
