As Rod Dreher observes in his recent book Live Not By Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents, perverse ideologies can conquer entire civilizations simply because most people choose to live by lies even if they don’t believe them simply because it is easier. Hate threatens societies—apathy destroys them. Thus, while a loud and very powerful minority in the United States is on board with the transgender agenda, the vast majority of the population simply can’t be bothered to protest. This is largely because these movements don’t impact our daily lives—until, suddenly, they do.
It is obvious to anyone with eyeballs and a functioning frontal cortex that the trans movement is making a mockery of us all. But most specifically, it is making a mockery of women. It is women who are being forced to share locker rooms and showers with their penis-packing sisters; it is women getting trounced in sporting events; and, insanely, it is women who are essentially being told that biological men are better at being women than they are.
For example, a man identifying as a woman—Kataluna Enriquez—was just crowned Miss Nevada, beating out 21 female contestants in the beauty pageant. And how do you think the mainstream media reacted to this new patriarchy-in-drag? NBC called it a “historic win.” The Courier Mail called him a “remarkable beauty queen.” Entertainment Weekly gushed that “history was made.” LGBT groups celebrated wildly at this leap forward for their cultural long-con, and it is easy to say why. I think beauty pageants are generally exploitative soft-core porn shows, but it turns out that even this bastion of female objectification can be colonized by guys—not as gawkers, but as girls.
It’s going to get crazier, too. A fellow named Oli London, a British influencer who is obsessed with K-pop star Park Jimin, decided to get a series of grotesque plastic surgeries in order to turn himself into Jimin’s doppelganger.
