The Other McCain provides the grim evidence that it probably can't be revived:
On Sunday night, Jill Soloway won an Emmy for directing the comedy series “Transparent,” and she made the most of her time onstage, advocating for the trans community and topping off her speech by saying “topple the patriarchy” not once, but twice.
After thanking Jeff Bezos for allowing her to make the showabout a transgender woman for Amazon Studios, she talked about what it has meant to her. “I’ve always wanted to be part of a movement ? civil rights movement, the feminist movement,” Soloway said. “This TV show allows me to take my dreams about unlikeable Jewish people, queer folk, trans folk, and make them the heroes.”
She then finished her speech with a clear message.
“Thank you to the trans community for your lived lives,” she said. “We need to stop violence against transgender women and topple the patriarchy. Topple the patriarchy!”So, a white male billionaire pays a lesbian feminist — whose father is, uh, now her mother, I guess — to direct a TV series and when she wins an award, her message is, “Topple the patriarchy.” Also, she compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. Meanwhile . . .Massachusetts will require that “churches must acknowledge transgender ideology or practice their doctrine on human sexuality in secret — putting Christianity in the closet” under their “Gender Identity Guidance” document.“Thou shalt not question my pronouns! And bake me a f–king cake!”Meanwhile, on the scientific front . . .The American College of Pediatricians (ACP) has released a position paper denouncing popular approaches to transgender, declaring that the current protocol is founded upon “unscientific gender ideology,” which lacks any basis in real evidence.
The physicians argue that the assumption that gender dysphoria (GD) — a psychological condition in which people experience a marked incongruence between their experienced gender and their biological sex — is innate contradicts all relevant data and is based on ideology rather than science.Liberals never let mere facts get in the way of their agenda.
Yes, I know the Emmy show had lackluster ratings. But remember that churches in post-America have lackluster attendance.
I don't care if we ratchet GDP up to record levels, a society in which this gets even the slightest kind of airing is terminally ill.
