Gender dysphoria among famous women

I read this morning that some wokester academics working for Shakespeare’s Globe theatre, have cast doubt on the gender identity of Queen Elizabeth I. Apparently her claiming to have the stomach and heart of a man was plain-speak for I’m non-binary before my time gimme some testosterone. And Joan of Arc was much too butch to be a genuine gal. Women with swords? Come on.

So here we are. The great movement to wipe women out of sport is extended to wipe women out of history. Margaret Thatcher was clearly intersex. “The Lady’s not for turning.” Pull the other one, so to speak.

Queen Boadicea, Indira Gandhi and Benazir Bhutto were clearly in the closet. Celts, Hindus and Muslims might not have taken kindly to them revealing their true mixed-up selves. Hilary Clinton and Kamala Harris? Surely there’s a clue in their pant-suitedness.

Anyway, we men have always known it. Women can’t hack it. When the going gets tough, they go to water. Hence, the wokesters have belled the famous cats, so to speak; they’re all toms in disguise. Liz Warren adds weight to this persuasive view by claiming that she would be president if she had a penis. (Linked to that one, in case you didn’t believe it.)

Pardon us Liz, but just say you’re a man, slip into a pair of jockeys, stuff a sausage down there, and, Bob’s your uncle, and you’re his nephew. It’s not like pretending to be Cherokee. That’s cultural appropriation; much harder. Feigning manhood is a bagatelle. Feted you’ll be. From Liz to Liam in a trice no need for drugs or cruel knife.

  1. This post would not be out of place on Babylon Bee.
    Unfortunately it is not satire.
    The world and the media would be a much saner place if they stopped listening to these academic nutcases that promote this BS.

  2. As I understand it – not having seen the production – there’s no mention of religion in the show, despite Joan actually being a, you know, Saint. So they slip in the pronouns and take out the pre-nominals. That’s some world class cherry picking.

  3. “Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” (Through the Looking Glass)

    Insisting on the announcing of pronouns warns us to assume nothing from the reality staring us in the face. No wonder activists are determined to normalise pronoun badges and email signatures. We even get help from Microsoft these days, with the latest Word algorithms now suggesting more inclusive language when you use certain words and phrases As Orwell wrote, “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”

  4. They’ve already turned Ann Boleyn into a black woman in the appalling Brigerton series.
    They just make it up.
    Truth is not true anymore.

  5. pronouns warns us to assume nothing from the reality staring us in the face.

    You might think that if the person looked enough like the gender they proclaim you wouldn’t need pronouns, you would just normalise them using the pronoun of their visibly chosen sex. But you would be wrong, firstly because you can always tell a bloke in a dress which is why they have to tell you what to use, and also because that person might be having a day of also being one of 56 different ‘genders’ in spite of all appearances. That’s because they separate ‘sex’ from ‘gender’, ignoring or dissolving ‘sex’, and end up with all sorts of nonsenses. It’s way beyond me to comprehend this NewSpeak.

    Truth is that which accords with reality.

    As such, truth will always be true, even if denied by human beings.

    All truth exists in the mind -so to speak -of God.

    Doubtless the Globe would be fully behind Othello played by Benedict Cumberbatch and Shylock played by Art Malik.

  8. They misheard that line in When Harry Met Sally and turned it into the catch phrase of feminist aspiration – “I’m having what he’s having”.

  9. There were whispers about Elizabeth’s sex when she was on the throne, the rumour being that the real Elizabeth died in the town of Bisley as a child and her retainers, fearing they were in all sorts of trouble, grabbed the first red-headed child of comparable age they could find. Alas, it turned out to be a boy, which was the ‘explanation’ in later life for her balding.

    Her dad’s syphilis probably had more to do with that.

    For those interested, the Bisley Boy

  10. “So here we are. The great movement to wipe women out of sport is extended to wipe women out of history. “

    It’s worse than that. The ultimate aim is to erase women from society. We have now reached the year 2022, and this progressive leftist ideology called “transgenderism”, a utterly sinister and perverted ideology, is now mainstream and is being promulgated in academia, in education, in entertainment, in business and in the MSM. “Transgenderism” is the pinnacle of pure unadulterated misogyny. And you want to know the joke, the big fucking joke, this pure unadulterated misogyny has been largely created, supported, nurtured, succoured and given oxygen by feminism, particularly third wave feminism. The joke is on women, because women are participating in their own annihilation by even tolerating one ounce of this perverted rubbish. But so many feminists still refuse to acknowledge that it isn’t the political right, it isn’t the Christians and it isn’t all the other traditionalists who are destroying women, it’s the progressive left, their left.

  11. The more honest term would be Penis Envy. It’s not so much the envy of the phallus itself, but the envy of the drive and innovation that God – the real one, not Allah – endowed us with.

    Maggie Thatch had apparently undergone some sort of speech therapy before her campaign to make her voice more masculine. Sad, really.

  12. These miserable wokesters have a very limited intellectual toolkit. The only way they can keep themselves ‘relevant’ is by recasting everything as gender identity – whether it readily lends itself to the transformation or not.

    Elizabeth’s speech has been remembered because of its power to stir the heart, now as it did then. These wankademics would strip away that poetic magic and reduce it to mere 2022 flat political ephemera.

    These morons may also be blind to the fact that while women were the gentler sex doesn’t mean they were invariably wilting – decorations draped around the place to make it look nicer. They would have had to have been ready to stand their ground and even be pushy on a daily basis. Just buying food from some burly oaf at the markets who had taken it into his own head to rip them off. To feed their family you bet these women would have stood up to him. They walked miles every day, carried every bucket of water they used, every bit of housework was done by hand, and all this even while pregnant. And they had to be the man while the man was away – protecting home and household from fire, animals, and bad men.

    We really need another word for people like these woke-education poseurs. To many the word ‘academic’ still conjures up an image of a venerable old soul under a mortarboard who seems more than a little out of place in our everyday world, but young and alive in their own domain. They appear as visitors from the world of Homer or Caesar, or Wordsworth, or even that twilight realm on the very border of existence where neutrinos and photons and quarks flash and whiz in mind bending chaos.

    The word ‘dickhead’ is already taken.

  13. @ Roger:

    “Truth is that which accords with reality.”

    And, as they say in the classics:

    “Reality is that, which, when you stop believing in it, does NOT go away.” (Philip K. Dick, author of “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”, the inspiration for “Blade Runner”).

  14. ” “Transgenderism” is the pinnacle of pure unadulterated misogyny”

    Is it? Or is it a way to sterilise a large proportion of the population? Which would be why they are going hard on allowing kids to have puberty blockers, surgery etc.
    Gotta keep that population growth down, you know…
