And now multigender

625px-Whitehead-link-alternative-sexuality-symbol.svgHow many genders are there?  Jenny Crofton says an infinite number.  And that each person has a unique gender.  (That doesn’t add up to infinity, but let that pass.)  She goes on to describe the phenomenon of “multigender.”  She says that individuals can have change their genders, inhabit more than one gender at the same time, switch genders according to one’s company, and on and on.  She lists 12 specific types of multigender.

You can be any combination of genders you want and change them at will.  BUT, she says, you must NOT commit the sin of cultural appropriation.  You can’t be a “two-spirit” gender, as in some native American cultures, because only native Americans can be that.

Also, if you are multigender, as I guess everyone is, you are to be considered “trans.”  And you are oppressed and should be on the lookout for microaggressions.  Crofton goes on to give the answers to 10 questions you may have. [Read more…]

Conform to reality or subdue reality?

Justin Taylor quotes from C. S. Lewis’s The Abolition of Man.  Peter Kreeft calls these lines “the single most illuminating three sentences I have ever read about our civilization.”

Read those three sentences after the jump.

Then consider what Kreeft says about them and my point about how one of these ways of thinking can now be found virtually everywhere in contemporary life.

“Pregnant people”

14985289434_e16abb6239_zThe British Medical Association has issued guidelines saying that to avoid offending the transgendered,  health workers should not refer to “pregnant women.”  Rather, say, “pregnant people.”

After all, a biological female–no, that wording is forbidden too; we must say “assigned female”–who identifies as a man can have a baby.  And since we must go by self-identification, that means that men can be pregnant.

The Transgender movement has at least destroyed feminism.  Now that men can claim the identity of women, and vice versa, among the radically correct, it makes no sense to so much as refer to “women.”  Or “men.”  Thus, the feminist-inspired March for Women also proved offensive to the transgendered.

Now a human/pig hybrid

4376553184_a40a8d9055_zScientists have combined the cells of a pig with the cells of a human, resulting in an embryo that has been implanted into a sow.
From Human-pig HYBRID? Scientists hoping to create part man, part pig organs | Science | News | Daily Express:

Scientists from the Salk Institute – a biological research organisation in California – have taken cells from pigs and people to create an embryo that was then inserted into a female pig.

As part of initial experiments, several different types of human cells were inserted into pig embryos in petri dishes to determine which cells were the best match for the pig embryo. [Read more…]

The superiority of the left-handed

512px-Linkshaender_01People who are left-handed constitute 10-15% of the population.  The other 85-90% have often given them a hard time.  But new research suggests that lefties are wired in a way that makes them, among other things, quicker thinkers and more creative.  And, judging from my left-handed wife, I know it’s true.
