He does. He just doesn't realize it yet. The top star of my grad program (white male) went on the tenure-track job market for two years in a row and got no offers. He gave up and went to law school, and he's done very well. I assume that he realized that the system was rigged against him.

It's ironic that 20 years ago, in academia, I knew better than to say anything about Israel/Palestine because there were a lot of Jewish people in academia and you never knew who might be a Zionist. One friend of mine said something critical of Zionism in front of a professor he didn't know was Jewish (last name doesn't sound like it at all), and the guy went apeshit and started shouting at him. Now, the shouting is from the other side.

I wonder if this white guy posting about how he can't get a job realizes that his distress is probably music to their ears. A lot of these revolutionaries don't want equality or equity; they want revenge.

No surprise. UCLA is one of the epicenters of woke ideology. It's one of the places Kimberlé Crenshaw teaches. (The other place she teaches? Columbia. No surprise there, either.) A few years ago, students in the Education Department went on a campaign against one of their own Education professors because he enforced grammar standards in papers.

And there have been numerous accounts over the years of admissions offices in the UC system covertly continuing to accept applicants based on race, looking at things like their names as clues to their race.

A big problem with therapy is that the psychotherapist only sees the slice of the client's life that the client wants to present, so the client can lie or distort the truth, and the therapist has no way of independently verifying any of it. Thus, a therapist can actually end up making someone worse by validating their narcissistic delusions.

I have a family member who I know has lied to therapists, and they, of course, encourage her in her strange vendettas.

James Lindsay investigates the origins of gender in queer theory by xoenix in TumblrInAction

[–]JulienMayfair 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm glad Lindsay found this, but I also think he's being a bit obtuse in looking for a smoking gun. The idea of "sexual inversion" had been around since before John Money. I will lazily grab a general description of it from Wikipedia for the sake of convenience:

Sexual inversion is a theory of homosexuality popular primarily in the late 19th and early 20th century. Sexual inversion was believed to be an inborn reversal of gender traits: male inverts were, to a greater or lesser degree, inclined to traditionally female pursuits and dress and vice versa. The sexologist Richard von Krafft-Ebing described female sexual inversion as "the masculine soul, heaving in the female bosom".

There you have it: "the masculine soul." That's the smoking gun. This is the invention of gender identity as a way to try to account for homosexuality. Even though it ends up being discredited as an explanation for sexual orientation, it gets resurrected by Queer Theory in the 1980s when they go back and re-read all the German sexologists.

It's not some obscure idea that had to be narrowly funneled through John Money and/or Gayle Rubin. John Money took the idea and turned it into a medical procedure.

Modern Communists: SDS & RCA by xoenix in TumblrInAction

Well, the fact remains that modern gay identity appeared at around the same time as modern industrial capitalism and urbanization, in contrast to a more rural, agrarian way of life. And it was the same transformation of work and family that allowed women to live independently, as opposed to being bound to the family by childbearing and child-rearing responsibilities.

And, of course, capitalism created the smartphones that, in turn, created (or warped) the minds of Gen Z. I don't see too many of them wanting to go live off-grid in the wilderness. That would be too scary.

Like it or not gay couplings do not produce children. It stands to reason that any centralized planning will only value such relationships when they have a situation where they don't need more children.

Gay people are really too small a percentage of the population to have a great impact on the birth rate, and lesbian couples can easily produce children with a minimal sperm donation. If a government really wanted to increase the birth rate by any means, one step would be to outlaw contraception for heterosexual couples.

Gay rights is a football that's been tossed around all over the place. I've seen arguments to the effect that capitalism is fundamental to gay identity because wage labor makes it possible for individuals to live outside the structure of the traditional family.

I also heard that China is now doubling-down on family values because they see the patriarchal family as a tool for social order.

American Communists have never really lived under Communism, so I think they tend to see it as some sort of benign anarchy, bless their naive little hearts.

I've gotten into arguments on Reddit with people who claim gender ideology is some kind of bogeyman that doesn't exist -- when you can easily and clearly point to a body of academic work from the 1990s to the present that codifies it and informs social policy. It's so strange when people are trying to push an ideology while simultaneously claiming that it doesn't even exist.

While interesting, this is hardly surprising. Who else are you going to find at Columbia? I went to an expensive private college, so I know what it gets you.

What it gets you is the opportunity to network with the children of the rich and powerful so that you, too, can become rich and powerful down the line. I doubt these kids really care that much about Palestine. What they are doing is putting themselves out there as edgy or cool, in the pursuit of social status.

If you've ever personally dealt with a pathological narcissist, you'll know that there is really no way to remind them that they are delusional that would be perceived by them as "polite."

It causes them that much distress. It's one of the reasons they are so angry all the time. Reality already chews at them all day long.

The irony is that most of the AGP cross dressers were heterosexual men with a fetish who wanted NOTHING to do with gay rights from the 1960s through the 1990s. Then, once gay rights started making strides in the 2000s, they decided to hijack it for their own ends. And they decided the way to do it was to rewrite the history of gay rights, putting themselves at the center. That's really a big part of what peaked me, the overwhelming, deliberate dishonesty of it all.

You know what else is becoming more and more common, to the point where it's ubiquitous? Pornography. It's everywhere. You need to get out of this strange mindset of a sharp distinction between psychiatric issues and "free will." Pornography is a technology, and technology creates feedback loops in its users. It conditions them and changes the reward systems in their brains. And lots of AGP men have self-reported "discovering" their trans identity through the consumption of pornography. Their presentation of their new-found identity tends to be in the form of the most clichéd porn caricatures of women. They want to become the object of their own desire.

Trust me. You are reinventing the wheel here.

ACLU suing Children’s Hospital Colorado for refusing to perform top surgery on 18 year-old by xoenix in TumblrInAction

Are they referring to breast reductions or mastectomies for cancer patients?

I'd assume the latter. I knew a woman with a small frame and very large breasts who got reduction surgery because they were causing her chronic back pain.

Maybe the hospital can respond that they'd be happy to treat this patient's mental illness without chopping her breasts off.

This is what happened to a friend and classmate of mine who transitioned FtM in the 1990s, and that was back when they actually still carefully vetted people. "He" didn't try to foist any of the gender ideology stuff on us. He just told friends that he was changing his name. Fast-forward 20 years, and his(her) body developed bad reactions to testosterone, so he had to stop it. He told me that he thought transition had been a mistake and that he was still dealing with the same issues he had before. But he was known academically as a trans-male and knew he would be hated if he detransitioned, so he ended up committing suicide.

Gay voice: Learned or innate? by xandit in LGBDropTheT

[–]JulienMayfair 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

"Gay voice" is an accent, and accents are learned, period. Any sane linguist would tell you that. Now, learning accents is mostly subconscious, but it can also be conscious, as in the case of actors or people who decide to change their native accent for various reasons.

If you listen to what we call "gay voice," it's a mixture of Valley Girl California and African-American Vernacular English, with some likely additions from the speech patterns of female Golden Era movie stars, like Bette Davis, Judy Garland, or Rosalind Russell. Stage voices feature those peculiar exaggerations. It's possible that a subculture of gay men in metropolitan areas acquired those vocal mannerisms from theater or film, aping their favorite stars.

I know plenty of gay men who don't speak with the gay accent at all, so, to me, the idea that it's innate is absurd/ridiculous.

What's going with straight men and trans people? by Lovebirds_fury in LGBDropTheT

I think it's more about the porn than necessarily about the sexuality. We know that things like porn provide a neurotransmitter reward to the brain, but with repeated use of the same kind, the reward dwindles. The brain wants novelty. So these guys start to look at trans porn. And maybe these guys haven't tried man-on-man sex at all. It's just a fantasy to them. Or maybe this is a gradual way for men to discover their bisexuality.

Think of what Marsha P. Johnson said -- that he dressed in drag as a prostitute because it attracted more clients.

But AskGayBros is the wrong place to ask about stuff like that. There are a lot of guys on there for whom sexuality is purely binary. They have no patience with someone who's in a process of discovery. You're either gay or straight or maybe bi, but there's a contingent there that barely believes in bisexuality.

We also know that for many AGP transwomen, sissy porn has been a kind of gateway drug into their "becoming a woman."

It's just another reiteration of the Garden of Eden, filtered through Jean Jacques Rousseau. It's an overall narrative that surged in popularity in academia in the 1990s. It was all perfect until [insert oppressor's name here] arrived.

I honestly thought that the mafia angle was pushed a bit too hard in the article. The real story of Rivera is how a narcissistic self-promoter's aims ended up dovetailing with the needs of people trying to push a particular identity politics narrative, resulting in Rivera's accomplishments getting amplified, while the work of others who did more is muted.

she was too ugly to rape

It is vile, but it's also hilarious to me how much feminists talk about "body positivity," but then, when the gloves come off, it's right back to junior high school level hierarchies of female status based on who's the prettiest.

It's the paradox of feminism. They all talk about "sisterhood," but then they're as vicious as possible to one another.

I spent 20 years working in academia. The nastiest fights, by far, I ever witnessed in person were between female professors around feminist topics. They would rip each other to shreds. You'd go to a talk, and after the talk, during the question and answer session, one of them would stand up in the audience and go after the speaker. They'd start yelling at each other. I never saw two male professors behave this way.

A friend of mine used to joke about the bullshit feminist fantasy that "magic peace rays" would shoot out of women's vaginas and turn the world into a matriarchal paradise.

This is also where we started to lose the ethos of principled disagreement and rational discussion of controversial ideas at universities. It was a male intellectual tradition that you could argue things out while still abiding by rules of conduct and mutual respect. The more women, especially feminists, that entered academia, the more anyone who disagreed with you became evil. Women have a lot to do with how we lost freedom of speech on campuses.

One thing I've learned over the last 30+ years about civil rights work is that the people who do the work and the people who claim to have done the work are often two quite different sets of people. For example, in college, I and three others co-founded the first public Gay & Lesbian organization on campus. We advertised our meetings, and a successor to that organization still exists (although now taken over by TQ+). I had my picture on the front of the school newspaper protesting ROTC's policy of kicking out students if they found out they were gay.

But when the school started doing an LGBT history project ten years ago, no one knew our names at all. All the paperwork related to us had been lost.

One thing that Sargeant fails to mention is the story that when Rivera learned that people like Duberman and Carter were rigorously researching Stonewall, he tried to get others who'd been there when it started to lie and say he'd been there -- because it was Rivera who'd gradually been inflating his own activist résumé over the intervening decades. He knew he'd be caught.

Rivera does deserve some credit for trying to help gay street kids, but, as Sargeant points out, it was a short-lived shit-show. And there were other people in the gay community helping street kids at the time who don't get any credit.

Add to that the fact that Rivera was obviously mentally-ill. He couldn't even take care of himself. Anyone who's seen any film footage of interviews with him should be able to suss that out pretty easily. All the relatively normal, average people with jobs who worked for Gay Rights . . . we're just not interesting enough.

But Rivera checks the right boxes, so the current generation will give him credit. It's the story they've been told is the right kind of story.

consider backing off.

When your whole project is to be "transgressive," where do you stop? You can't admit to having gone too far because that would mean that there is such a thing as going too far.

I read Queer Theory in the 1990s. I attended two Judith Butler lectures. I had a flirtation with it in my own scholarship, but then I began to see that there was something wrong with it.

Queer Theory has always been fundamentally oppositional, opposing all taboos and boundaries. As such, there's nothing built into it as a way to signal going too far. It's no surprise that age of consent laws became a target for them. They don't care about what it means to live a good, rewarding life; they simply want to smash anything that gets in the way of their appetites. And I say that as a gay man.

The unwritten rule for a long time in academia has been that you are not allowed to question the conclusions of a person of color without opening yourself up to charges of racism, but we seem to have reached a tipping point where the sacred protected status of people like Claudine Gay is starting to crumble. The thing is that there are a LOT more Claudine Gays out there in academia.

If you're a DEI professional, there's no reason to try to reduce racial tensions since that would eliminate the need for your job. It's generally a mistake to allow a profession to proliferate that depends on the existence of an ongoing problem that they are employed to "solve." If they solve it, they put themselves out of business. Much better to make it worse.

protest foreign policy

Yeah, but college students have been protesting U.S. foreign policy for decades with minimal reaction from the government. And if those college presidents had been able to defend their actions on principle instead of giving non-answers to direct questions, it wouldn't have gone so badly for them. Everyone watching could tell that they were being evasive. They embarrassed themselves by being so clumsy about it, and we expect better from presidents of prestigious universities.

Rufo will now expose a whole international network of grifters

Rufo hardly needs to "expose" any of these people. James Lindsay and his cohorts have been doing it for years. The problem is not so much plagiarism as shoddy scholarship and a system of hiring professors whereby existing faculty will ONLY hire people who check the right boxes and who already agree with them. The takeover of academia by the woke was not so much planned as a conspiracy as it was a natural consequence of the way the tenure-track professor hiring process works. At this point, at most universities, if you don't explicitly endorse woke principles, you'd have to be very good at hiding it until you get tenure, or you might as well burn your CV.

Congress is hauling university presidents in to demand they shut down free speech.

More broadly, it's become a tit-for-tat game. It was leftist academics who started calling for safe spaces and speech codes in the 1990s. (I know because I was in graduate school with them.) What's become rather glaringly obvious is that speech codes and their applications have become extremely biased in favor of some groups and against others. The point behind Stefanik's questioning was really that the decision has been made that Jews aren't the right kind of minority they would need to be to qualify for the same protections as "BIPOC" and TQ+.

The best outcome would be for universities to have a reset back to the less restrictive campus speech rules of the 1980s, and that's where the university presidents fell into the trap set for them. They were deliberately placed in a position where they couldn't both defend freedom of expression and defend restrictive campus speech codes. And we could all seem them trapped and stuttering, unable to articulate principled, coherent answers.

From what I've seen, Gay's failure to cite some sources is probably minor, so they got her on technicalities. The bigger problem is how campuses privilege the sensitivities of some students over others in an attempt to perform social justice while stifling freedom of speech.
