At first blush I would have thought 'queerplatonic' would describe the relationship I have with my best friend, who is a lesbian. I am a gay man, she is a lesbian, we are 'queer' (but neither of us refer to ourselves in that way) and we're total homosexual besties.

Alas, it was not to be. You're quite right that the obsession with labels is bizarre and hypocritical. I think it's narcissism, pure and simple. These people don't want to have 'friends' like normal, well-adjusted adults, they have to be in 'queerplatonic' relationships. They don't like casual sex, but they don't just dislike casual sex, they dislike it in a special, sparkly, demisexual way.

How much of it is 'real' (in as much as these trans identities can be 'real') is unclear.

It seems that, on Reddit at least, a trans identity is carte blanche for saying and doing basically whatever you want. Threatening to rape someone is unacceptable when you're a straight man, but when you're a stunning and brave trans woman you can do and say what you like.

Why wouldn't you choose to be marginalised if it means you can act with impunity on a platform that used to be known for defending free speech? They know Reddit is going down the toilet, but they can't beat them, so they join them.

And if you'll all wear your tinfoil hats please, ladies and gentlemen, you'll find that trans kiddy diddlers are all friends who look after their own, so the QAnon cabal of paedophiles mightn't be at the highest levels of American government, but there's plenty of reason to think that they might be on the board of Reddit.

First off, thank you for taking the time to screenshot and preserve all of this, it must have taken you a while.

Second, I'm disappointed to see The Times shut down debate in such a blunt way. I don't read The Times because all of their articles are behind a paywall (in the UK at least) but I still hold them in my mind as being a fairly sensible, 'grown up' paper. To me, they have always been to the UK what the NYT is used to be to the United States. I wouldn't be surprised if there were some trananigans going on the comment section and the editors had no choice.

I can't now remember which book it was in (might have been Irreversible Damage) but there was a story of an trans-identifying female ballerina who had found a ballet company that allowed her to train as a male.

Obviously, male and female ballerinas have very different roles, males doing lifting and other 'heavy' work (not a ballet expert so not sure if there's terminology) and female ballerinas are famously light and waifish. Our trans identified ballerina wouldn't have had the strength to perform a male role in a ballet (no shade, I absolutely wouldn't either) but the poor choreographer had to redo the choreography several times to allow for this and then I think she left the company anyway because, unsurprisingly, she couldn't perform male roles.

You'd think the arts would be absolutely in thrall to this nonsense but apparently not.

NHS “gaslighting” patients over trans women in female only wards by DiveBarDiva in LGBDropTheT

Certain companies and government agencies have distanced themselves from Stonewall, but it's worth noting that the NHS isn't one monolithic organisation, but split into different regional 'trusts', meaning one group of local hospitals may well have different policies from a different group of hospitals a few miles away. Clearly some trusts are still in thrall to the Stonewall menace while others may have distanced themselves from it.

It's the same with the government. The Treasury, the Foreign Office, the Home Office, the Cabinet Office, the House of Commons... etc. are all more or less independent, and while Liz Truss (Foreign Secretary) has been outspoken in her criticism of Stonewall, other senior politicians in charge of those departments have been a little more reticent. I don't know what Rishi Sunak (Chancellor of the Exchequer) thinks about anything, for instance.

DC's new Superman comes out as bisexual - has pink-haired xefriend by Chunkeeguy in LGBDropTheT

I have no interest in comics and never have done, I think they're much more popular across the pond than they are here, but I think this is just the latest instance of a popular trend of 'diversifying' beloved or long-standing characters in popular culture as an attempt at virtue signalling.

In-world intricacies explaining how it's not actually Superman who's bisexual now, it's not actually Spiderman who's a black kid now, it's not actually James Bond who's a woman now are lost on the vast majority of people who simply read the headline and think 'Oh, I guess Superman is panromantic aro demiqueer now'.

There's nothing wrong with having 'diverse' characters, as long as that's not the most interesting thing about them. If you want a female superspy or a panromantic genderqueer superhero, create one. From scratch. Then they can be exactly how you envisage them, without any of the 'baggage' that comes with their predecessors.

It's like vegan food. There are plenty of ingredients in the world that are animal free. Make good vegan dishes that stand on their own, not poor imitations of things that already exist. Enjoy the pizza by accepting that it has meat and cheese on it (or simply don't eat it) and enjoy James Bond by accepting that's he's a bit of a misogynist prick.

The BBC hasn't been impartial since 2016. Bias and slant are to be expected in the media these days, these cretins are just upset that this particular outlet will be less biased in their favour from now on. This move away from Stonewall, if anything, makes the BBC more impartial.

The vibe I get from this author is as follows:

Grew up and was probably into Dr Who, got really weirdly into Americans-Who-Like-British-Things Tumblr (I drink tea, I'm so quirky! #SherlockedInsideTheTardis) and probably wasn't part of the popular clique at high school. American, so I'm relying on American popular culture stereotypes here, but he was definitely a 'theatre kid'. Goes to some liberal arts college in the East of the US and ZOMG gets to study abroad in England for a semester?! dream. come. true.

Arrives on this sceptred isle, this other Eden and studies at some university like Anglia Ruskin or Lincoln, maybe a slightly more prestigious one like Bath or Bristol depending on the calibre of the college back in the States, but definitely not a university in London. One in the regions. One where people aren't used to seeing Americans and roll their eyes when they hear his loud, brash hear-him-before-you-see-him voice echoing in the corridors, or on his phone in the library. 'Oh hey Moooooooom'.

Realises quite quickly that Britain isn't the land of stereotypes that American popular culture has made it out to be and nobody is going to find him as interesting as he find them because actually it turns out that Britain, like the rest of the English-speaking world, has been saturated with American popular culture and politics for decades now, and nothing happens in America that isn't reported on here. Several sexual partners probably reject him too.

And so after a few damp, chilly months studying in a university town with nothing more exciting than a parade of betting shops and takeaways, he leaves this fortress built by Nature for herself, with few friends, not much in the way of academic progress, and a bitter, jaded view of the United Kingdom and everyone therein. No longer able to cash in on being the 'quirky guy who loves all things English' he finds a new home in identity politics, and shits out vitriolic waffle like this.


Absolutely, 100% untrue, all of it (probably? I guess I could check but who cares tbh, my version is better), but I had fun writing that.

despite being a civilization in terminal decline

The Empire is gone, and it's time we all accept that. I have to fish my own tea out of the harbour and nobody will ever call me memsahib, but it has to be said that the imperious attitude that comes with, well, imperialism is often a great comfort when the colonists get a little restive.

JK? Maya? Which cisgender woman? You can't make a claim like that and then not back it up (a theme we see throughout this 'article').

The UK’s high rate of homelessness amongst LGBT youth, the risk of deportation faced by gay asylum seekers, or the fact that homophobic hate crime has soared since 2015

Hard to find things to dispute about these points, really, except that the first two are not issues exclusive to homosexuals. There are plenty of straight homeless people too, and I imagine any number of straight people get their asylum claims rejected too. These issues, I think, need to be sorted out in totality, rather than doing the (what I feel is quite an American thing, to be honest) thing of asking 'But what about the gay homeless?' This is very much a case of all lives mattering.

Having successfully persuaded polite society that “TERF” is a slur, the British anti-trans movement now organizes under the banner of “gender critical” — a euphemistic moniker made considerably funnier by the fact that nobody is more critical of gender than someone who transitions.

That's funny, I always thought that transitioners were the ones who were most in favour of maintaining oppressive gender stereotypes, because without them their whole shtick evaporates into nonsense.

There's a certain kind of gay man who embodies the gender-critical vibe. He’s white, middle class and exactly 45 years old, and even though he works as a corporate lawyer, he thinks teenagers with dyed blue hair are an oppressor class. His Twitter Bio reads something like, “snarky prick taking aim at the tyranny of twaddle” or “why drink the Kool-Aid when you can have a lovely G&T?” His pronouns are “sod/off” or “jog/on.” He’s not especially interested in gay culture, and instead prefers the standard fare of middle-brow English liberals: George Orwell and The Great British Bake-Off; Solzhenitsyn and Strictly Come Dancing; comedy panel shows called “I’m Afraid I Haven’t the Foggiest!” and popular history books titled Bothersome Broads: A Feminist History Told Through 12 Grating Gals (which he “inhaled in a single glorious afternoon.”) His aesthetic crimes are gruesome and, more to the point, he is dedicated to making things harder on already vulnerable people.

This is gold, and I'm posting it in its entirety because I want to keep it forever. Also it's called I'm sorry I haven't a clue! and there's nothing wrong with Bake Off and Alexander Solzhenitsyn won the fucking Nobel Prize, and George Orwell is an important author who we all study at school, you can do a lot worse than their books. Would you be similarly blasé about Mark Twain or John Steinbeck? Probably, because they were straight white men and that makes your tiny American brain quiver.

There seems to be the concern that if gay men lump ourselves together with trans people — a group subject to greater discrimination — we risk being damned by association.

Stopped clocks and all that...

“GC gay men in the U.S. tend to be part of what I'd call a kind of anti-identitarian scene where everyone sees identity as a kind of red herring of politics — a distraction from things that actually matter,”

Perhaps you Yankees aren't so bad after all.

These men are spiteful and staggeringly unchic; they’re wasting their lives in the worst possible way— luckily, as a gay man, I am allowed to say so.

This is what it all boils down to, isn't it? Nasty British gay men rejected you because you're an American prick, you clearly don't like that some Americans like Doctor Who and Bake Off and decided to write a pissy, bitter article that paints you as the restive colonial we all know you are at heart.

What a cockwomble. Or is that too Anglophile-Tumblr for you?

I have several problems with this:

First, the horrible neologism 'thrupple' or 'throuple' sets my teeth on edge. It's an ugly word, and I hate how acceptable its use has become, especially when describing homosexual relationships.

Secondly, I don't get the idea of polygamy / 'open' relationships / whatever you want to call what's going on here. I was always under the impression that in any kind of love triangle, partner A wants to be in an 'open' relationship because I guess they struggle with commitment / are kind of a slut and partner B always agrees because they don't want to lose partner A, and then partner B just ends up jealous and unhappy.

How does one supposed to improve straight man's experience of not getting lesbian matches? by DickFreeBacon in LGBDropTheT

Only the insane and the rapey want to match with people who don't want them.

Therein lies the rub, my friend. Some people wouldn't opt in, and that would be unacceptably trabsphobic.

Yes, that's the general idea. Profiles are organised by distance. You can apply filters (age, height, 'position' etc. [Race was removed some time ago]) so you only see profiles that you are interested in, but that doesn't make you invisible to those you aren't, and they can still send you messages.

While it would be unfair of me to launch into an ad hominem his voice is really irritating. I have heard several people with similarly irritating whiney American accents. Is it a regional thing? Where is this man from and remind me never to go there.

As to the content of his argument, however, much can be said.

This is very disconcerting and confusing to women when they find this out

Your misogyny is showing, sir. Women are icky TERFs aren't they, who just don't get things!? The notion that a 'straight' man who is attracted to a 'trans woman who hasn't had bottom surgery' but is not bi- or homosexual is confusing to me too, and I am a man.

Trans women are women. They are female.

No.

These men are attracted to her femininity and see her as the woman she is.

That's not how any of this works.

The attraction to her is from the waist up, but it can also be from the waist down.

Sure, I guess they're attracted to her broad, manly shoulders, big man hands, big man jaw and big ol' Adam's apple.

That act doesn't indicate a sexual orientation it indicates an attraction to the person.

I see, so now my sexuality depends on the other person. I didn't have sex with a child, my lady, because he identified as an adult. The act doesn't constitute a crime.

Quite apart from nutters wielding road flares, what bothers me most about this is the absolute fucking butchering of the French language in the name of inclusivity.

racisé.e.s

travailleur.e.s

Not for the first time I find myself agreeing with the Académie on this issue:

La multiplication des marques orthographiques et syntaxiques qu’elle induit aboutit à une langue désunie, disparate dans son expression, créant une confusion qui confine à l’illisibilité. On voit mal quel est l’objectif poursuivi et comment il pourrait surmonter les obstacles pratiques d’écriture, de lecture – visuelle ou à voix haute – et de prononciation. Cela alourdirait la tâche des pédagogues. Cela compliquerait plus encore celle des lecteurs.

The multiplication of orthographic and syntactic marks that it ['inclusive' writing] creates results in a discordant language, disparate in its expression and confused to the point of illegibility. It is difficult to see what the point is and how it will overcome the practical difficulties of writing, reading - both visually and aloud - and pronunciation. This will increase the burden on teachers, not to mention readers.

Teacher asked to remove Pride Flag from his classroom and resigns instead. Story posted by a GC account. Comments praise it. Keep noticing subtle homophobia from some of these accounts. by Criticallacitirc in LGBDropTheT

[–]ArthnoldManacatsaman 10 insightful - 2 fun10 insightful - 1 fun11 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

  1. Thank you for explaining the context. I know very little about the state of Missouri (one of the square ones in the middle?) but the Portland 'All Lives Matter' analogy was very clear and I see now why the controversy erupted.

  2. Hard agree. Flags are never politically neutral, however ubiquitous they may appear to be, and wherever they may be displayed. I know in the United States displaying the Stars and Stripes on one's car and outside one's home is more of 'a thing' than it is in the UK, but there are still very much stereotypes around the kind of person who would do so, and what other political beliefs such people might possess (which is to say, the wrong ones). An MP resigned from her shadow cabinet position after tweeting a snide picture of a house bedecked with England flags (🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿) and a white van on the driveway. In the wake of Brexit, too, anyone or anything with Union Jack (🇬🇧) or England flag branding is seen to be pandering to racist, xenophobic Brexit voters, and such people are often called 'flag-shaggers'. It is an irony lost on most people that those who throw the term 'flag-shagger' around with most relish often have an EU (🇪🇺) or pride flag in their Twitter Bio.

  3. It's tricky. While I believe that teachers shouldn't have to be closeted about their sexuality, I firmly believe that teachers' personal lives should be left at the school gates, whatever form they might take. I don't need to hear about Miss White's divorce, or Mr Lewis's problems with his son, any more than I need to hear about Mr Wallis's woke credentials. Shut up and tell me about Churchill. (Or Robert E Lee or whoever)

  4. I haven't really seen much homophobia within the GC 'movement' but outside this forum I don't really engage with the 'movement' or use social media. I don't use Reddit or Twitter or Instagram of what have you, but I have no doubt that there are homophobes lurking.

  5. I was looking for the pride flag emoji to include in a devastatingly witty comment on here, and my usual place for such things is Emojipedia (owned by the same people who own dictionary.com and, consequently, super woke). I typed 'pride' into the search bar, and the trans flag (which is called simply 'Transgender Flag') appears before the pride ('Rainbow Flag') in the list. I won't get my tinfoil hat out just yet but I doubt that was a coincidence.

Edit: Missouri isn't a square one in the middle, but those states are nearby. So, half a point I think.

I didn't get involved because Jesus Christ, no. But if I had, I would have said something like you did:

I first heard of 'manifesting' at work the other day. Somebody said (slightly in jest, to their credit)

If you manifest hard enough miracles can happen.

Other team members sagely nodded their agreement.

I had never heard the word 'manifest' used in this sense before. If you manifest... what, exactly? If you manifest signs of COVID? If you manifest the cargo on your plane? So being the pedant I am I asked what it means and was told

It's just like... putting something out there in the universe?

That's something that always struck me about detransitioners. They were the helpless victims who were misled by Big Pharma and Big Trans and nobody tried hard enough to stop them.

This is a convenient narrative and I can definitely see the appeal. I have no doubt that a certain proportion of detransitioners were indeed helpless victims subject to perfidious doctors in the pocket of Big Pharma.

But then I reflect on how, especially in the United States, the doctor-patient relationship has become so transactional, and some of these TRAs are so militant that nothing anyone could have said could have diverted them from this path. We all remember how we were as teenagers and how It'S noT a PhAsE MuM ThIS iS wHO I Am, and this is, I suppose, the logical conclusion of that mindset.

I guess my point is the detransitions-as-helpless-victims narrative robs them of their agency. Ultimately, they chose.

All correct, unfortunately.

What really stuck in my craw about the police was their unequal treatment of protesters during the height of the pandemic in the summer of 2020. People who were protesting against lockdowns were arrested and manhandled, as were women attending a vigil for Sarah Everard (who was herself murdered by a police officer), but when BLM activists filled Trafalgar Square to protest about a murder 4000 miles away the police stood by, took the knee and did nothing.

Since the murder of Stephen Lawrence the police have been terrified of doing anything that might incur the label 'racist', which is why investigations into the grooming gangs and paedophile rings in Rotherham and Rochdale were sat on for decades.

Add to that the introduction of Non-crime hate incidents that leave a black mark against your name in a criminal record check, and you leave British policing in a very sorry state indeed.

It's tricky.

Islamic theocracy (or, indeed, any kind of theocracy) is incompatible with human rights, the rights of women and girls, and LGB people, you're certainly right there.

But I think a lot of people in the West, and other places besides, are hoping that they can leverage the Taliban's desire for legitimacy as a way of 'improving' the lot of the people still in Afghanistan.

The Taliban don't want to be seen as the pariah failed state they once were. When they controlled the country before, the only other countries that officially recognised them were Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Pakistan, and things quickly soured after 9/11. Now, things seem to be different.

Both Russia and China have kept their embassies in Kabul open with Taliban protection, and both Moscow and Beijing received Taliban delegations over the summer. Iran, Pakistan and Turkey have all also been enjoying America's discomfiture.

All this seems to suggest that it will be difficult for countries in the West to prevent the Taliban from achieving diplomatic recognition. Boris Johnson and Joe Biden are both clearly against this, and Boris has urged the other G7 countries to avoid bilateral recognition.

So I think some people can tentatively take the Taliban at their word, by exchanging recognition and legitimacy for moderation when it comes to human rights etc.

But as the attacks on the airport and the article OP linked suggest, things aren't off to a particularly promising start.

While it's certainly a ridiculous thing to say, the part that stood out to me was 'with compliments'. I'm assuming she's not using that term in the same way a hotel uses it when they put a bottle of water on the coffee table 'with our compliments' - I'm assuming that she just wants people to say nice things about her.

My response would be that, since she wants to rigidly enforce gender conformity across the board, as a man she needs to get used to not being complimented. Sorry love. Also bottle those feelings of dysphoria up and take it on the chin, like a man, eh?
