"Without the conviction to go through transition"

Of course you don't have the conviction; they chop your cock off!

enough conviction to bully a gay man, though

Expand full comment

That's not conviction.

Conviction would be to stand up for a gay man who is having old school conversion therapy foisted on him because his sexual preferences are "transphobic".

This is just straight-up cowardice.

Why is he even considering 'transition' anyway? If being a woman is down to feelings rather than biology, he can easily 'become a woman' simply by thinking it, surely? Clearly they don't really believe this asinine bucket of dog's bollocks. No-one could. Could they? Really? Like, black is white, end of? Day is night, end of? Is this what evolution has culminated in? Men with male bodies, fully-functioning penises, claiming to be women? #believingsiximpossiblethingsbeforebreakfast

Jack Turban apparently agrees with you.

You know that amongst those who claim to transition only a tiny number have surgery. Mostly they just take hormones so they can grow a pair to fondle while they w**k. It's all BS.

I adore the simplicity of your statement, because yes it's the truth. All this talk of "feeling you're a woman" is a load of cock. The only feeling of a woman they have is when groping their own tits. Actually, there should be no shame in autogynephilia, but it should be kept to the bedroom/home and private. I wouldn't mind cross dressing in public either, if they didn't come into women's spaces with their "girl-dick". I don't need it rammed down my throat..........

No no no no no. What is Pride for now? Just a tourist, marketing, money-making opportunity? Fluxating femme euphoria (demigirl)? This word salad means nothing. You are a deluded man, accept it. And removing your penis does not make you a woman. It makes you a man without your penis.

Why is this attracting such unhinged people? What fresh hell is being unleashed in the name of diversity? It feels like society and reality are imploding.

But that's how some women are, clearly! Remember, womanhood is a spectrum: imagine someone looking like a young Brigitte Bardot at one end and someone looking like Brian Blessed at the other. #siximpossiblethingsbeforebreakfast

I honestly think that the only way the vast majority of people in this country will wake up out of their trans-enabling coma is if a male 'national treasure' such as Blessed feigns womanhood and declares that women's spaces are no longer cock-free zones. That would bring the disgusting trans-house-of-cards crashing down with ignominy in less time than it would take to yell, FRESH HORSES!!! But I doubt anything like this is going to happen anytime soon, more's the pity.

Eddie Izzard! Yet it didn't bring down the house of cards. Sadly, the only this is coming down is if they media grows a spine and starts to properly report what is going on without bias but with a nod to reality. So, no using opposite sex pronouns for actual male rapists; no "glitter" articles for how a 3 year old is really the opposite sex (instead an article pointing out the utter lunacy of a parent, doctors, hospitals, schools following that mantra) and probably some horrific situation like the Pride one but where a group of women are actually severely injured, maybe children too.

To really make house of cards fall, something very tragic will need to happen. I feel like a storm of that kind is brewing...it terrifies me.

As someone over 60, I've joined the old gits' 'in my day' brigade, but yes, when I was young, if you wanted to be interesting and make friends, you learnt to play guitar or took up painting, writing or even politics, to give you something to talk about. You didn't spend your free time sending hate messages and taking selfies showing off your hairy flat tits peeking out of a cheap dress, essentially because you usually needed at least one friend to take a picture of you. There's something so lonely about those blokes, however, I can't feel sorry for them. I hate them every bit as much as they hate women.

Oh God! Well that sent me down a very dark wormhole: https://youtu.be/FHQB0glDTCg

Chris has spent way too much time online and has diagnosed himself with numerous conditions.

There are so many of these frankly crazy people now and I would include incels in that list. They don’t seem to have outer lives, they exist in a weird virtual space, so when they’re confronted by reality they truly think they’re being victimised.

I’ve never felt more grateful to not have had the internet during my formative years. Thank god I was going out and having fun!

In some ways it offers insight into what’s going on, in others it’s bloody terrifying! Social media is toxic enough for adults, children don’t stand a chance.

In the video in which he self-diagnoses as someone with alexithymia, he comes across as someone of a rather diffident demeanour who simply needs a therapist who is not ready to fall over backwards to indulge him in his fantasies or enable his perversions. Superficially, he seems as though he would be amenable to constructive suggestions re: the insanity of his gender beliefs, albeit given a softly-softly approach on the part of the therapist. I think what all gender-conflicted individuals need is a long course of talking therapy - but from a therapist who has no compunction about bursting the gender identity bubble. Such professionals are conspicuous by their absence, unfortunately, since most therapists are enablers rather than true, conscientious healers of minds.

He also discusses being 'age dysphoric'. Life is not just a picknmix of what you wish you were or experience it as. No, you are not a teenager 'trapped' in a middle-aged man's body. Is that what all the paedophiles are? That he thinks he is these 'identities' 'trapped' 'inside' suggests he has too much Reddit in his life and is desperately trying to make himself feel better after his breakdown. He needs help and support, not this chasm of madness. Others seem to be encouraging him in these delusions.

There's a host of 'oh I always felt a bit different' people leaping on to this bandwagon, but it's anything and everything they are demanding to be embraced. The manner in which things get into the diagnostic manuals is dodgy - it's inventing things to put labels on and goes in fashions. Then people are rushing to self-diagnose themselves as special and high-functioning nitwits and any fantasy is indulged.

Have we just absented ourselves from providing any mental health care at all for people struggling? I see a connection between this and the defunding and 'go online and fix yourself with self-help' that UK mental health services now are. People in droves went 'online' and look what they found.

Expand full comment

Yes... he does need help and support.

There is an epidemic of mental health problems...they need to be addressed.

Sounds like he has low self esteem and is making up for it … by 'I am so super different and special with my minority group'.

It is pitiable.

I don’t think he had a breakdown, I honestly think he’s got a low IQ.

I like your phrase about how they collide. He clearly seems to have lots of difficulties, or thinks he does. It might be both, I'm not diagnosing him and how would I know.

To give unstable people a platform on YouTube is odd. It exposes him even more so it looks a bit naive. Who is that helping? I get a bit sick of the 'be kind' mantra about mental health, when it's selfishness and attention-seeking behaviours hyped up as mental ill health. Much of this is the same old misogyny and privileging a man's demands, or just those of either sex that shout loudest and use intimidation and threats to get their way. Sure we all want love and support, but when did it become acceptable to demand 'validation' for feelings. And using this quasi psychobabble and terms that don't mean what they think they mean to give it some air of legitimacy.

When I saw the video - there is a slim build feminine looking person (woman?) with light purpley grey hair chasing after the man escorted off, pointing, jabbing her arm and yelling. Being so unbelievably aggressive, clearly thinking she is safe to be so violent. Seeing that unalloyed rage makes my blood run cold.

He claims to have alexithymia, which is not a discrete condition, rather a word to describe a difficulty in processing information.

He claims not to have feelings, but then goes on to describe his feelings.

When low IQ and social media collide then seep out into the real world, it really is genuinely frightening.

Yes ,apart from people like James Esses who was expelled from his Uni course and sacked from his volounteering job with the NSPCC for disagreeing with affirmative therapy ! He's honest ,brave and caring ,which is what all therapists should be ,if they had any integrity at all .

There used to be a range of terms, like 'touched' that maybe are more accurate.

At a minimum it negates the whole purpose of calling yourself non-binary.

How is one both aplatonic AND aromantic/asexual? Leaving aside it is impossible for a member of a sexually reproducing species to be asexual, that is. I would think they cancel each other out.

So many of these dudes don't even make halfway decent-looking men! I have gotten very sensitive as I have aged to how ugly most males are; it literally makes me recoil in horror. Remember that old crap about how women age and men just get better? Huh? Older women mostly look quite good except for the ones who smoked and drank too much, then they end up looking like men.

Not happy with some of the language being used here but I understand why. When you read the guy's description of himself you have to do a double take. Just where do these weird and outlandish terms come from. It sounds like the sort of thing a satirist would write for a character to get a laugh. Are we sure he isn't really Andrew Doyle's new character to replace Titania McGrath?
