Genderqueers, dickgirls, and science pussies — oh my!
For today’s episode, I’m joined by outspoken political prisoner Christopher Cantwell for his take on a viral “Trans Awareness” post which details the account of an adult male who voluntarily castrated himself for attention on social media. The castration itself apparently didn’t make him feel any better about his gender dysmorphia, hence his attempt to seek affirmation from strangers online. Once the dopamine high of that wears off, there’s a 50% likelihood that he will kill himself.
The post is equal parts funny and disgusting, but it’s also a stark reminder that the mentally ill are being held up as role models for our children, which is no laughing matter.
I mistakenly thought the post was part of “Trans Awareness Month”, which is actually in November. My misconception was borne of the fact that the post was published by the “Trans Awareness” Facebook page, the proprietors of which make every day “Trans Awareness Day.”
We’ve also got a small geopolitical update.
Listener discretion is advised.
