Through the magic of the YouTube algorithm, last night I came across feminist Isabella Malbin’s “Whose Body Is It?” channel. As I’ve been chronicling since 2014, radical feminists are waging war against what can fairly be described as the Transgender-Industrial Complex. Of course my readers know me as a staunch opponent of feminism, per se — the concept of “group rights” is at the heart of the radicalism destroying our civilization. Nevertheless, “truth is great and will prevail,” and radical feminists have tenaciously grabbed hold of an important truth — men and women are different, in ways that are socially significant.
Aharon is addressing something very important: Social media is fueling this “dangerous dichotomy” in which young girls receive the message that the ideal is to be a hypersexualized bimbo — aspiring to become a “Real Housewives” cast member, basically — or else they must reject womanhood altogether, chasing the transgender fantasy, getting their breasts amputated, injecting themselves with testosterone, etc.
Every conservative understands what it’s like to be smeared this way. If you advocate for limited government, fiscal sanity and maintenance of the Constitution — just basic common-sense traditionalism — you will inevitably find yourself depicted by the media as some kind of “extremist,” lumped in with neo-Nazis, etc. And this is what is happening now to feminists. Whenever liberals have an agenda, everyone who is against must be Hitler, according to the media. If liberals want war, anyone who wants peace will be labelled a “right-wing extremist.”
First Amendment freedom of speech is under attack.
What is happening is that opposition to the liberal agenda — regarding transgenderism or anything else — is categorized as “hate,” and thereby made subject to “de-platforming,” so that you can’t use common online communications channels (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.) to express dissent. Activists collaborate with Silicon Valley insiders to suppress opposition, to block opponents from fundraising sites, which means that while any liberal can use PayPal, Google Adsense or whatever to fund their activism (e.g., pro-transgenderism), opponents of the liberal agenda do not have the same freedom (because “hate”).
