The Asch conformity experiments of the 1950s demonstrated that peer pressure, ridicule and ostracism are powerful enough forces to make people conform to the group, even contrary to their own cognition. Today’s transgender movement, which has turned into a kind of fascism (no, that’s not a right-leaning ideology at all) puts the lessons of those experiments into practice – the dissenting subject is singled out and demonized. Some will crack under the pressure, and some won’t.
Nothing exemplifies this as well as Ben Shapiro’s exchanges on a panel discussion with Dr. Drew a few years ago. It started as a conversation about “Caitlyn” Jenner winning the Arthur Ashe Courage Award…
…and then, these virtue-signaling trans-fascist zombies started competing for what we could call the Solomon Asch Conformity Award. Everyone in there was against him, including Dr. Drew, who is acting as the moderate voice of reason and authority in that forum – It’s the classic good-cop-bad-cop conditioning.
But who was being conditioned? Certainly not Ben Shapiro – they know he’s a lost cause. No, it is the viewers who are being conditioned into thinking that this demonstration of pack mentality, and punishment for wrong-think, is normal and how things ought to be. It’s not just letting mental illness out of the institution, but giving it a gun and a badge as well. Trans-fascists flush out anything less than total acceptance of and participation in transgender delusion, and conflate it with with gay bashing and bigotry of all kinds (intersectionality). They want there to be no middle ground where anyone can hide – either you sign their dotted line of trans-validation, or you’ll be on the run like a fugitive.
Do not be deceived. We outnumber these brainwashed assholes. And we have basic logic and facts on our side.
One of main ways that they’re bringing this fight to your front door is through pronouns: either you kiss the ring of trans-fascism and call a man, who thinks he’s a woman, she, or you’ll be unmasked by the social justice squad as a one of those irredeemable deplorables who must be stopped. Shapiro’s stance on transgenderism at large is libertarian (surprising, considering that he’s a neocon) in that he is fine with addressing someone by a name that they changed to, or letting people do whatever freakish things they want with their own body, but compelling others to use the biologically incorrect pronoun is forcing society to validate it. The good news is that, if the goal of trans-fascists is to give the naysayers no way out, someone in their ranks blew it for them, by their acceptance of the pronoun they as an alternative. I’ve held for a long time that this pronoun was the acceptable compromise because it’s correct, but doesn’t force me to divine something that is not consonant with basic biology. If use of they becomes mainstream, it’s going to be awkward to use, but the trans-fascists who are intent on antagonizing dissenters will find that they’ve painted themselves into a corner with it, and missed the spot they were going for.
Another way they have weaponized the lexicon is gender vs. sex, the former being redefined as a social construct, and the latter being designated as the term to use in place of the former. Well, what can we say? They hijacked other previously innocuous terms, e.g. gay, which use to mean happy, lesbian, which used to be a demonym for people from the Greek island of Lesbos, and confirmed bachelor, which use to apply to most people who read this blog…so why not hijack more of the lexicon? It’s easy to get blindsided the first time you hear a SJW, fresh out of the college gender-chaos centrifuge, spit this idea out at you. It sounds so novel and unheard of, yet they speak with such authority about it (remind me to do a blog on false/bluff authority), that you may find yourself looking the terms up, just to make sure that you aren’t the crazy or ignorant one… Yep, sorry to say it, but you’ve just been gaslit.
This video is required viewing – Steven Crowder hosts a debate between a transsexual/transvestite/idunno guy, and a politically conservative lesbian, who calls the trans-fascist movement out for exactly what they are doing: gaslighting. They try to make you feel like you are the crazy one, the backwards one, the bigot and the fascist – they’ll call you all of that and worse.
They start talking about that part of it about halfway through the video.
On a side note…yes, I noticed – she’s still a woman, and doesn’t want to give up her entitlements in spite of all of her perks…but she’s absolutely right on this one, so we’ll let it go this time.
Live and let live? Of course. MGTOW and incels have to live by this principle – their safety and peace depend on it. Transgenderism would not be an issue worth talking about if it followed that creed as well, but that is not what’s happening here. Transgenderism is on the offense, not defense. It has turned into an in-your-face, fascist movement (one of many in our day) and the way you fight it is by recognizing their tactics.
Always remember the Asch Conformity Experiments, when the issues of transgenderism and trans-acceptance come up. Make that your starting point, and don’t fall prey to the gaslighting. Your sanity and your soul depend on it.
