The Wellcome Collection – one of Britain’s leading medical museums – has upset many women by demeaning their sex with the unpronounceable, politically correct, trans-inclusive euphemism “womxn”.
The “x” where the “e” should be is, of course, there to accommodate all those hordes of transgender activists who want to identify as women, even though biologically they remain as male as ever they were when they emerged from their mother’s womb with a set of boys’ dangly bits.
Quite understandably a lot of real women are unhappy about this invasion of their territory.
If the trans rights movement were a zombie aimed at destroying Western Civilisation – and it is – then it wouldn’t be one of the stumbling, shambling ones you see on Walking Dead. It would be one of those zombies-on-speed you see haring over the walls of Jerusalem in World War Z.
Which is to say no other identity politics movement has suborned our culture with such terrifying rapidity as trans rights.
Read this excellent summary in the Spectator by James Kirkup to realise how dire things have become.
According to Michael Biggs, an Oxford University sociologist, the speed at which transgender rights advocates have advanced their cause is unprecedented in western history. In less than a decade, he suggests, the movement has embedded itself in public and corporate life and often succeeded in changing policy and practice without significant scrutiny or question.
But how, exactly, did it embed itself in public and corporate life?
Those familiar with Vox Day’s SJWs Always Lie or SJWs Always Double Down will know the modus operandi. Sooner or later, every institution gets “converged” by SJW values – usually enforced by entryists in one of its less relevant departments like Human Resources or Diversity or Sustainability. These people – often fresh from “Uni” where they have imbibed all the worst idiocies of post-modernism and neo-Marxist identity politics – make no contribution to the institution’s core business. But like a mutant parasite, they use their leverage within the company to take control and shift its agenda.
