Virginia library removed display after outcry

Dec 8, 2021

A library in Fairfax County, Virginia, created a book display featuring the notorious books “Gender Queer” and “Lawn Boy” – which parents claim feature pedophilia and obscene material – alongside the Bible but later removed the display after residents called it offensive.

 “The Dolley Madison Library holiday reading display was intended to highlight the freedom to read and the fact that many library patrons have more time during the holidays to do so,” Fairfax County Public Library Director Jessica Hudson told Fox News in a statement Tuesday. “It was not the intention of staff to create a display that could be construed as offensive. The display has been removed.”

The display featured gnomes with stocking-style hats paired with books. The gnomes with “Lawn Boy” and “Gender Queer” had bees on their stocking-hats, while the gnome with the Bible had a rainbow-colored hat, along with other rainbow paraphernalia. The display also featured quotes from controversial books, such as Salman Rushdie’s “The Satanic Verses.”

“Lawn Boy,” by Jonathan Evison, includes long sections of a boy reminiscing about explicit experiences he had at 10 years old. “Gender Queer: A Memoir,” by Maia Kobabe, includes photos of sexual acts between a boy and a man.

Concerned parents had spoken up at Fairfax County School Board meetings to protest the books’ presence in school libraries, but the school district reinstated the books after two committees ruled that they do not contain pedophilia or obscene material.

Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris Meets With Female Activist Who Ranted “‘F*ck The White’ Women”

Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris Meets With Female Activist Who Ranted “‘F*ck The White’ Women”

There is no purpose or context in which this is appropriate – the constant shaming, of progressives, of white people and of white women in particular.

I dislike Islam, sexism, and biological men (“transwomen”) being in women’s only spaces (I also dislike the misogyny some of these transwomen utter), but I do recognize that not all Muslims, all men, or all transgender persons are evil rapists, jerks, sexists, and what have you.

I don’t always spell those caveats (of “not all of persons of Group X are terrible”) out in every post I make, where I rant or fume about the latest news item where a complementarian man has done or said something sexist (again), or the latest news story where a transwoman has molested a little girl and so on, but I hope this is understood.

I’ve been really tired of seeing how the left steps on white people in general but how they scapegoat white women in particular.

This scapegoating and demonizing of white women has been going on for years now, and I first began noticing that the left puts white women (or all biological women initially) on the lowest rung of their favorite pet groups.

It took me awhile later to learn about progressive concepts in more detail, like “intersectionalism,” where it was confirmed for me that, yes, the left has a stacking order of Victimhood, where they deem whomever, which ever group, is the most victimized as being at a higher priority of care and concern, than those they deem lowest.

This began, several years ago, with the left demonizing white men quite a bit.

Then a couple or so years later, it jumped to the left vilifying white women. And there they remain. I think (biological, heterosexual) white women now remain the most demonized group, even more so than white men.

At the same time, these same white (hetero, etc) women continue to suffer the slings and arrows of regular, every day sexism from biological, hetero men.

Now white women (now including ones who identity as lesbian) also have to deal with harassment and demonization by transwomen.

The transwomen demonize white (lesbian) women for not wanting to date biological men (ie., transwomen), and many progressive black women and their “allies” like to scream and yell at white women for “centering” themselves, for not doing enough, and love to mock “white women’s tears” and toss the term “white fragility” around.

Democrats overall love to demonize white women if a Republican wins, because they will look at the stats or polling and see that white women, as a voting bloc, tended to vote for one politician or another.

This demonization of white people generally (not just white women particularly) and the shaming of white people (including children!) has, unfortunately, gotten very prevalent in the last few years.

It’s not necessary or acceptable to insult white people as a group to address racism against black people, any more than it’s necessary or acceptable for Baptists and others speaking out against declining marriage rates by insulting all single adults or singleness.

If you want to tell me that you believe that racism (against persons of color by white people) is still an issue today, that is all well and good, but if you’re going to address this racism by constantly using racial putdowns against whites or shaming whites for being white, then I do not agree with that.

(This gets into the weeds, though, when one considers that today’s leftists understand terms differently than most of us. To them, a “white supremacist” can include a dark-skinned individual who votes Republican, doesn’t agree with CRT, or who is a conservative. Most of us understand the term to mean something like a white guy in a white robe burning crosses at night.)

I may have more to say about the following excerpts in another, separate blog post pertaining to these subjects.

This references Kamala Harris, who is currently the Democratic Vice President of the United States:

Dec 8, 2021

On Monday, Vice President Kamala Harris held a meeting with a black feminist activist who had stated publicly, “F*** white women.”

Harris met with Cora Masters Barry and other members of the Black Women Leaders and Allies on Monday.

Barry, the wife of the late Washington, D.C., Mayor Marian Barry, was participating on a Zoom call last November with Rolling Out CEO Munson Steed and fellow activist Melanie Campbell as they discussed white women voting more for Republican candidates, The Daily Mail reported.

Barry ranted, “F*** the white — excuse me — forget the white women. They’re going to do what the white men tell them to do. … They be smiling in [your face]; they want to stay in charge. … I don’t care nothing about them, we gotta do what we gotta do.”

The Ex Christian, Ex-Exvangelical, Now-Atheist Hits the Nail on the Head About Exvangelicals (Edit: A Left Leaning Person is Actually Saying This Post Commenting on the Frequent Hypocritical, Hateful Behavior by Leftists is Itself “Hateful” – Totally Mind-Boggling)

The Ex Christian, Ex-Exvangelical, Now-Atheist Hits the Nail on the Head About Exvangelicals (Edit: A Left Leaning Person is Actually Saying This Post Commenting on the Frequent Hypocritical, Hateful Behavior by Leftists is Itself “Hateful” – Totally Mind-Boggling)


There is a Jan. 25, 2022 edit made to this post towards the end


I think this person, who calls herself Andy on Twitter, and says she went from being a Christian to an Ex-vangelical (also referred to as “Exvies”) to an atheist, is absolutely correct in her tweet below.

She says what I’ve been observing for a few years now with the people who post under the “Exvangelical” or “Empty The Pews” hash tags on Twitter – some of those who use these tags are ex Christians, or switched from being a conservative Christian over to being liberal or progressive.

From what I’ve seen of them – or just run of the mill liberal, leftist, or progressive Christians – they are just as hateful, nasty, critical, pious, and sanctimonious (they are so, so very sanctimonious that it’s positively nauseating) as the groups they criticize (usually conservative Christians), and in some cases even MORE SO.

I’ve mentioned this before in the context of Christian, progressive persons or groups such as Stephanie Drury’s “Stuff Christian Culture Likes” Facebook Group, I’ve had run ins with Christopher Stoop (is it Chrissy now?), and Nate Sparks.

These people tend to be just as, if not more, judgmental and condemning as the evangelical, Baptist, or fundamentalist Christians they complain about all the time on their blogs, podcasts, and social media.

Progressive Christians conflate their leftist causes and political views with the Christian faith itself all the time, yet they often criticize “white evangelicals” for voting for Trump, or for just being a Republican, or voting for, Republicans.

The progressives, for example, will dismiss any possibility that you can be a good Christian if you don’t support leftist positions such as CRT, Black Lives Matter, or biological men (“transwomen”) being permitted into women’s only spaces, etc

The hypocrisy just blows me away. And the progressives who sit around all smug mocking and judging conservative Christians are blind to this.

Not only were Andy’s observations spot on (you can read some of her Twitter comments farther below in this post), but some of the people who left her replies were also completely correct.

(Link): It’s Time For Gays And Lesbians To Stand Up And Reject The Perverts Abusing Our Cause by Joshua Slocum

While the gay and lesbian community was proudly welcoming anyone who claimed to be part of our cause, predators and perverts infiltrated our ranks.

[Editorial opens with explanation of book entitled “Gender Queer,” a book for minors in a public library showing illustrations of one girl performing oral sex on a dildo worn by another girl.
A parent reported this book to local police, who refused to intervene, saying the book did not meet the criteria for laws in the area deeming what is harmful to minors]

That, apparently, is that. The sacred caste of trans people and any effort to support their cause can do no wrong. It’s not pornography, it’s “stunning and brave.”

This indulgence has brought society to a place where people are fired and shunned for not referring to men as women. Worse, it has normalized the symptoms of mental illness that frequently occur in children who have been sexually, physically, or emotionally abused.

Trans activism has also destroyed the gay community. What I call “original recipe homosexuals” like me are low on the totem pole beneath men and women claiming to be the opposite sex.

Gay men are hounded by trans ideologues if we won’t date the slight and obviously female “trans men.”

Lesbian bars have all but disappeared.

Lesbians can’t say no to men in dresses without being called bigots at best or threatened with rape or murder at worst.

Being Bitter and Blaming Others Can Ruin Your Health by Elizabeth Cohen

Being Bitter and Blaming Others Can Ruin Your Health by Elizabeth Cohen

Excerpts:

August 2011
By Elizabeth Cohen, Senior Medical Correspondent

…Feeling persistently resentful toward other people — the boss who fired you, the spouse who cheated on you — can indeed affect your physical health, according to a new book, “Embitterment: Societal, psychological, and clinical perspectives.”

In fact, the negative power of feeling bitter is so strong that the authors call for the creation of a new diagnosis called PTED, or post-traumatic embitterment disorder, to describe people who can’t forgive others’ transgressions against them.

“Bitterness is a nasty solvent that erodes every good thing,” says Dr. Charles Raison, associate professor of psychiatry at Emory University School of Medicine and CNNHealth’s Mental Health expert doctor.

What bitterness does to your body

Feeling bitter interferes with the body’s hormonal and immune systems, according to Carsten Wrosch, an associate professor of psychology at Concordia University in Montreal and an author of a chapter in the new book.

Studies have shown that bitter, angry people have higher blood pressure and heart rate and are more likely to die of heart disease and other illnesses.

Perverted Company Sells Infant Shaped Butt Plugs So Biological Males Who Like to Say They’re Women Can Pretend to Give Birth – Also: Men Faking Periods, Sucking on Helium to Inflate Their Stomachs

Perverted Company Sells Infant Shaped Butt Plugs So Biological Males Who Like to Say They’re Women Can Pretend to Give Birth – Also: Men Faking Periods, Sucking on Helium to Inflate Their Stomachs

All of the following is a part and parcel of the far left’s “queering” of culture, and sick biological men who claim to be “trans” who make a mockery out of actual (biological) womanhood.

In light of phenomenon like what is below in this post, I cannot take the “trans” or “non binary” groups, movements, or views seriously. There is an element of misogyny going on in these beliefs and practices as well.

Some of this also just reads as perversion.

I came across this tweet the other day – I follow a mix of liberal and conservative accounts and news sites, some of which cover sexism and gender and so forth.

Someone found a web site by a company that sells sex toys called “butt plugs” in the shape of babies – infant children, and they tweeted about it.

The site is called “Weapons of Ass Destruction,” and the product title is “Butt Baby.”

You can visit their “Butt Baby” page by clicking here (their site may ask you to verify if you are age 21 or older by clicking a button that pops up on screen).

The company advertises these sex toys as a means for “non gender conforming” biological males (which I’d imagine includes biological men who claim to be transgender but actually have autogynephilia or are just rank and file perverts) to pretend to be pregnant.

The purpose of this item is for them to shove this infant-shaped item up their anus, expel it, and so pretend to give birth.
(That is actually having a simulated bowel movement, not a simulated pregnancy.)

The company says on their site that this is part of their MPREG (“male pregnancy”) collection.

Here below is a screen capture I took from their page of their “butt baby” anal plug.

An Alarming Trend in Psychotherapy by Christine Sefein – (Woke Therapists Want You To Stay In a Victim Mindset and Miserable)

An Alarming Trend in Psychotherapy by Christine Sefein – (Woke Therapists Want You To Stay In a Victim Mindset and Miserable)

Below: embedded video, “Christine Sefein: An Alarming Trend in Psychotherapy”

This video is largely addressing woke, Neo-Marxist, identity politics influences in the mental health profession and its damaging ramifications upon groups of people (such as women, people of color, and so on).

However, much of what is mentioned is identical as what I said in previous posts in regards to psychologists or therapists (or friends) enabling people with mental health problems, by merely echoing back and validating the negative thoughts and worldviews of those persons.

There is a time and place for non-judgmental emotional support, but if a friend, family, or mental health professional merely validates the person’s distorted (negative) beliefs, and does so for months to years on end, and does not challenge or encourage the person to change their behavior (when and where it can be changed) and/or change how they view their situation or themselves, the person will remain in a state of Learned Helplessness.

Therefore, the person’s anxiety, depression, or whatever issue they are facing, will not diminish or cease.

Giving someone with depression (or certain other conditions) nothing but validation and on-going emotional support – as the therapist in the video below explains – will actually keep the person in a depressive state, or possibly worsen her mental health.
(This is exactly what I was saying in other, older blog posts and other media, but got chewed out over it by others.)

While the far left in the mental health field love to tell people that they are experiencing depression or some other problem because of the identity group they are a part of (whether they are black, homosexual, a woman, what have you), on the individual level, some people are buying into this toxic thinking because they have a Victim Mentality (see this previous post for more about Victim Mentality).

If a friend of yours, or a mental health professional, is simply sitting around agreeing with your negative views – that you are a victim in life, and you always have life oh-so-hard, and isn’t life horrible and unfair, and there’s nothing any of us can do about it – they are aiding you in keeping  you trapped in your anxiety and depression.

If this person was actually competent and compassionate, they’d be trying to help you to find steps to take TO CHANGE, to improve in some way.

Offering empathy or emotional support is only one part of the pie, it should not be the entire pie – and that emotional support is useless and garbage if it’s being mis-used to keep someone “stuck” in some disorder or harmful mindset they have.

If you continue to think of yourself as a victim, your situation or condition will never improve.

If you continue to believe that your life and all its problems – or obtaining happiness or peace – is not in your control at all, that it remains outside of your control and due to external factors, you will continue being depressed and feeling hopeless.

I spent over 30 years with clinical depression – I was diagnosed by psychiatrists with it – and I spent years trying to figure a way out of depression, when the sessions with psychiatrists didn’t help me, and the prescribed anti-depressants didn’t help me, either.

I finally figured my way out of depression (on my own), and I can tell you that the “woke” approach to “treatment” will absolutely keep you trapped in depression.

Getting primarily, or only, emotional support from a therapist, friends or family, when you’re dealing with depression (or most other problems in life), and thinking of yourself as a victim in life, isn’t going to help you rebound and heal in the long run.

As I said in a previous post, receiving emotional support for a problem initially is fine, but at the end of the day, if you want to solve a problem and make it go away, emotional support only won’t cut it – you will have to change something about your life, your usual routine, or how you think about yourself or your life or your problem if you hope to break free.

(Link): FAIR News: An Alarming Trend in Psychotherapy

For our latest video, FAIR’s Christine Sefein explains how her field of psychotherapy has been taken over by what she describes as a “divisive and regressive ideology” that led her to resign from her position as a professor of clinical psychology at Antioch University in Los Angeles.

This ideology teaches people to see themselves as part of an oppressed group and to blame their hardships on oppressor groups. And sometimes that’s true! But most often this way of thinking, which encourages hypersensitivity, is harmful to people who are seeking help from mental illness conditions.

Sefein worries that her field, which is designed to help people overcome their mental illnesses, will actually exacerbate patients’ symptoms by causing them to view themselves as having no control over improving their situation.

Instead, people are acquiring an attitude called “learned hopelessness,” which locks them into a feedback loop of pessimism and despair.

Gender ideology is not about liberation – it is about coercion and control.
 October 22, 2021

Transgenderism has emerged as one of the most influential ideologies of our time. It is shaping people’s behaviour and thought in pursuit of a specific political objective – the erosion of the significance of biological sex.

And it is undermining long-held cultural assumptions about what it means to be a man or a woman.

Above all, it is an intolerant, coercive force – and it has been thoroughly embraced by political and cultural elites in both the UK and the US.

In the UK recently we have seen Labour Party leader Keir Starmer criticise one of his MPs for daring to say that ‘only women have a cervix’….

From London to Vienna to Stockholm, young migrant men, mostly from Muslim-majority countries, are targeting white women for sexual violence and harassment.

European governments are doing little to stop the attacks or punish the perpetrators for fear of being labeled racist.

Now some are warning that immigration and Islam are endangering women’s rights and security across Europe.

Democrats Pushing Transgenderism In Schools Are Fully Responsible For Bathroom Sexual Assaults

Democrats Pushing Transgenderism In Schools Are Fully Responsible For Bathroom Sexual Assaults

(Link): Democrats Pushing Transgenderism In Schools Are Fully Responsible For Bathroom Sexual Assaults

Excerpts:

by Terry Schilling

Democrats and school administrators are tossing aside student safety to instead focus on normalizing their crazed gender ideology.

…Smith [father of a biological girl who was sexually assaulted by a biological boy] told The Daily Wire he learned his daughter had allegedly been assaulted in a girls’ restroom by a boy wearing a skirt. (According to some reports, the boy identifies as “gender-fluid.”)

Smith said school officials told him they intended to handle the incident in-house, instead of through the police and courts. After Smith became understandably upset at this callous and wholly improper decision not to involve law enforcement, he says school officials calls the police on him.

…Concerned parents argued the policy would take privacy and safety from girls. LCPS Superintendent Scott Ziegler responded, “To my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms.” Smith couldn’t believe his ears.

…The full truth about what had happened to Smith’s daughter did not become public until this past week: The sexual assault committed against her was no anomaly.

Not only that, it was the direct result of policies promoted and advanced by Democrats who are willing to sacrifice the bodies, minds, and souls of innocent children to protect leftist gender ideology from criticism.

Mother of Gender Fluid Biological Male Who Used Trans Friendly Bathroom School Policies to Rape Biological Girl Blames Rape Victim for being Raped

Mother of Gender Fluid Biological Male Who Used Trans Friendly Bathroom School Policies to Rape Biological Girl Blames Rape Victim for being Raped

This little male freak in the news story discussed below – a biological boy – slapped on a skirt, identifies as “gender fluid,” so he was given access to a public school’s girl’s bathroom, where upon he raped an honest to god girl, a biological girl.

Regardless of how this biological male identifies – whether he claims to be trans or something else – it is absolutely a ramification of the left’s push towards blurring any and all lines between biological males and females, including the notion of allowing natal males who “identify” as female into women’s only spaces (such as bathrooms, domestic violence shelters, and locker rooms) that makes male rape of females much easier and more likely to take place.

The liberal media disgustingly tried to cover for this by pointing out that the girl in question previously had consensual sex with the gender fluid, skirt wearing male freak rapist.

The school system tried covering up this rape for quite some time, until the story was broken by a conservative site.

Last I heard, the mother of the gender fluid male freak is victim-blaming the boy’s rape victim.

I can never again take another liberal or Democrat seriously when they say they are opposed to sexism or the sexual abuse of women when I keep seeing news stories like the one below.

(Link): Mother of “Skirt Wearing” Rapist in Loudoun Blames Victim for Being Sexually Assaulted

The mother of the 15-year-old boy at the center of the Loudoun County school rape spree has come out and slammed the young victim of the assault, claiming she was “willing” and that her son isn’t to blame for the rape.

The Loudoun County School Board came to international attention in October when a father revealed his ninth-grade daughter had been sexually assaulted in the girl’s restroom at her school by a male student “wearing a skirt.”

The assault took place at Stone Bridge High School in May, and was followed by a series of controversies including the father being violently arrested when trying to confront School Board members about the assault at a public meeting.

The boy would be promptly transferred to another school where he would later be arrested for sexually assaulting yet another young female student – this time confining the girl in an empty classroom and molesting her.

In October, the teen was found guilty of rape in the first case after being charged with two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio. He is awaiting trial on the second assault.

Today, the mother of the boy came forward to (Link): speak with the Daily Mail about the incidents, but rather than showing any empathy for victims – she slammed them while defending her son.

“He’s a 15-year-old boy that wanted to have sex in the bathroom, with somebody that was willing,” she stated, seemingly neglecting the fact her son had been convicted of rape, “And they’re twisting this just enough to make it a political hot button issue.”

She went on to blame the victim in the first case for her own sexual assault, saying “If I was in a position where I was about to be raped, I would be screaming, kicking, everything … You’re 15. You can reasonably defend yourself. You’re not just going to sit there and take it.”
