ridiculous theories about her death, as they do. A lot of it centers around a dude with the unfortunate Youtube handle of ZippyThe Pinheadj (guess a-i was taken) who “prophesied” her death with a story that is as convincing as his comb-over.
To be serious for a moment, there are too many things wrong with the statement Rivers made (and folks like Alex Jones repeated) to even count without even getting to the word “tranny”. It reinforces a lot of the negative ways white people sexualize black bodies (and especially black women’s bodies, constantly robbing them of their femininity). It reinforces how entitled folks feel to define other’s sexual orientations. It directly correlates transgender identity as inherently fraudulent.
But no, the “pro-tranny” crowd thinks that politically correct folks that are bothered with the term can cast killing spells. Because something about a “Baphomet Hand Gesture”, whatever that is.
This in and of itself is so Crazytown it’s singing awful rap metal about butterflies, but it gets weirder.
See, most of the vandalism as of late has been regarding transgender related articles. And some of it sounds strangely… focused. Arguments about phrasing on articles about Chelsea Manning and Laverne Cox and the show Orange Is The New Black make sense because they are high-profile mainstream topics. But like, how many people that aren’t trans women or people that are deliberately antagonistic towards trans women even know what Camp Trans is? There was also some calculated attempts to insert misleading and false links between gender dysphoria and body dysmorphic disorder (a particular pet peeve of mine), insistence on referencing that godawful Gavin McInnes article everywhere, as well as complete gibberish about “species disorder” which is pretty much par for the course from the kind of folks that think Gender Hurts makes some good points.
The spree of vandalism came to a head with the anonymous Congressional staffer insisting they were there on “official business” of an unnamed Representative. They insisted the necessity of their mission to counter support for ENDA and rabid conspiracy theories about “the EU using neocolonialist methods to impose transgenderism on the nation of Georgia” (an obvious reference to response to a Georgia prison’s refusal of access of healthcare to a trans woman inmate). Thankfully they were finally just banned.
So in just a moment we will be discussing one of my favorite internet forum threads ever, but first lets talk about a terrible board game. Let’s take a moment to watch the corniest white people in the world play and pretend to enjoy it:
Basically, the whole point of Scruples is to out your friends as the morally-inferior weaselly dirtbags they are. You have cards with moral dilemmas and a card with a yes, no, or maybe response. You pick the friend that is most likely to give the reply on your card. So… which one of your friends is most likely to pick up a lost wallet and not try to find the owner? Which one takes the money from the Nielson people without filling out the survey?
How much fun does that sound? None?
So it turns out that the creator of said game, Henry Makow, is a hardcore homophobic, anti-Semitic men’s rights activist conspiracy theorist, and boy is he way out there. The logic of his now defunct “Save The Males” MRA site goes something like this: 1) Gay men have sex with each other because they hate women 2) Feminists hate men and want to destroy them all 3) Since both hate heterosexuality (naturally), they’ve joined forces to create porn to poison the spirits of manly men. And you can bet your sweet bippie that he has some rambling jackass opinion on where trans women use the restroom.
Which brings us to this amazing 380 post thread from the David Icke forums on Freemasonry’s Hidden Transgender Agenda. Only four posts in folks are claiming the Illuminati’s ultimate goal is “ to confuse humanity and subject them to a transgender master race” which frankly would be AWESOME (sorry cis folks).
The bombing of Hiroshima was part of the Trans-Gay Agenda because Enola is Alone spelled backwards and the names of the bombs imply a pregnant man.
A reminder to myself to struggle through this dreadfully boring video to see if there’s anything that would make cool samples:
Trans women are a part of a Jewish Conspiracy to make cishet white dudes confused and feel guilty.
Obligatory Holocaust Denier post because this is the David Icke forums.
I AM THE TRUEST TRANS THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE.
The truth behind Barack Obama’s birth certificate is that he was born a woman.
So like, I’m a transsexual/transgender whatever and I find this whole speech laughable. Fuck your right-wing HBS BS.
Seriously, trans separatists are just so fucking awful.
“…they want you to mate with negroes and produce hybrid slaves for the Jews”
The Illuminati are known masters of forum thread-jacking.
“Apart from false-flag 9-11, nothing better demonstrates society Illuminati subversion than their attempt to make us behave like homosexuals.”
Biochemically engineered gay and trans folks to dilute real men for the Androgeny Agenda.
Okay this person GETS IT.
Obligatory post of someone doing a Google Image Search for “Gay Pride” to make some stupid point (surprised it took this long to show up).
The “gay voice” is created from too much TV and microchips.
Gay jeans and CIA planted counterfeit lesbians.
“Conspiracy nuts” is a slur.
A symbolic deconstruction of the Michael Jackson album Dangerous for some reason.
And then, sadly, the thread drifts off and ends.
(Trigger Warning: Neo-Nazi fuckery all over the place).
So earlier this week some friends/fellow members of the elite race traitor Transqueerluminati were discussing far right wing sites and bloggers that drift so far out that they’re almost funny (when you desperately try to forget the truly awful people that agree with them).
At one point someone mentioned a gathering where someone had done an absurd dramatic reading of this piece of happy horseshit, I mean critique of anarcho-capitalism. Now, I’m no fan of anarcho-capitalism (or capitalism) or Ayn Rand or objectivism by even the remotest stretch of the imagination, but nowhere in my critique would you find me accusing it of being a “Jewish Conspiracy” (which I’ll go into more detail momentarily).
Most laughably, he claims AnCaps are universally pro LGBT rights (has he even MET any AnCaps? Jesus fuck.)
Lemme just break this whole image down; one that is unsurprisingly similar to image diptychs you’ll see all across the social conservative spectrum. On the surface it’s a pretty typical social conservative “I did a Google Image Search for ‘gay pride’ to distinguish from socially respectable people” piece of tired-ass crap. They dig up a picture of a colorful (usually DMAB) person and hold it in everyone’s faces all like THIS IS WHAT YOU SUPPORT THIS IS THE FUTURE BE TERRIFIED. And anyone with any sort of sense is like… what? That’s not scary at all, that person seems fun and probably takes themselves a lot less seriously than you do, grow the fuck up. Frankly I find the creepy Teutonic sepia-tone pic of the homogenized milk-white family shadowed with their patriarchal Reichsadler Eagle overlord way the fuck more terrifying.
That said, from here on out whenever a white person makes up an imaginary African name and pretends to speak in AAVE, or whenever I hear a white person dismiss cultural appropriation, this article is what will immediately come to mind.
But then, whenever I see someone argue that parents being supportive of their trans* children is abuse, I’ll be thinking of this article. TERFs, MRAs, religious right, Nazi assclowns, it’s all the exact same white heteronormative patriarchy to me.
And like, sure people like this dude think everything is a “Jewish Conspiracy”, but this dude think’s EVERYTHING is a “Jewish Conspiracy”. He thinks feminism is a Jewish Conspiracy. He thinks transgender kids are a Jewish Conspiracy. He thinks criticism of gay conversion therapy is a Jewish Conspiracy. He thinks cursing is a Jewish Conspiracy. He even thinks Alex Jones is a Jewish Conspiracy.
Ah, I guess obesity is also a “Jewish Conspiracy” too. He also uses the phrase “emotion-based” so often on his site I’m pretty sure he believes emotions are a “Jewish Conspiracy” as well.
And like, I personally think Alex Jones is a joke and have no qualms mocking him and his fans relentlessly. But when I hear a Neo-Nazi sob incoherently about how hurt he is by Jones saying mean things about Hitler, I’m like “Fuck. Yes.”.
Because Nazis and other anti-semites are barely human trash and I want them to cry more.
