Steve Sailer's United Field Theory of Transies

You'll note that I don't say "trannies," because I think "tranny" has a more specific meaning. Anyhow, Wiktionary says:

(slang, chiefly pejorative and offensive) A transsexual, transgender or transvestite person, usually a transwoman.

So I needed a word that would also include the cutting-edge popular new transracial category. And who knows what next? Transchronal? (lies about one's age) Transelevational? (wears lifts) Transspeciesal? (is some sort of nonhuman at heart) and on and on and on. If anybody has a better word than "transy," let me know.

Anyhow, as far as the sexual categories and racial thing is concerned, the dependable Steve Sailer has come up with a sort of unified field theory that explains them all, and places them in the social construction area, as opposed to the real area, which consists of pretty basic biological definitions instead of the groovy fantasy world area so beloved of our leftist pals, who plan to change the world not with revolution any more, but with wishful thinking and everybody who believes in fairies clap their hands.

And do notice as you read this, that Steve invokes Darwin. Not in the usual leftist manner of using Darwin to bash Christians, but in the manner of applying what Darwin actually said and thought to the controversy, a thing leftists would rather die than do.

The Flight From White

As you may have noticed, the more denunciations we hear of Cisgender Straight White Male Privilege, the more the evidence mounts that, all else being equal, the rewards in 2015 tend to lie on the other side.

If you want to know which side is more powerful at present, just observe who is wielding the rhetorical whip hand. It’s human nature to fear, respect, and even admire those with the power to harm you. Hence, it’s popular to side with the strong to denounce the weak. As Mencius Moldbug observed in 2013:

The logic of the witch hunter is simple…. The first requirement is to invert the reality of power…. In a country where anyone who speaks out against the witches is soon found dangling by his heels from an oak at midnight with his head shrunk to the size of a baseball, we won’t see a lot of witch-hunting and we know there’s a serious witch problem. In a country where witch-hunting is a stable and lucrative career, and also an amateur pastime enjoyed by millions of hobbyists on the weekend, we know there are no real witches worth a damn.

Of course, the more our society obsesses over the Looming Witch Menace, the more absurd becomes the daily news, and the harder it is to refrain from breaking out laughing. Perhaps June 2015 will go down in history as the month the reigning pieties jumped the shark.

For example, white male has-been Bruce Jenner is now superstarette Caitlyn Jenner, a Good Witch in the war upon male dignity, whose courage is lauded by both the president and millions of Kardashian fans.

And don’t you dare act as if Jenner having threatened to unman himself on the E! network might be a little funny. Clint Eastwood, for example, made the slightest verbal gesture that he found something amusing about it all (“Caitlyn somebody”) and had his heresy censored by the Spike network.

Shortly after Jenner’s transubstantiation, we learned that a social-justice warriorette named Rachel Dolezal had moved to the big city of Spokane, Wash., tanned her skin, permed her hair, and built herself a nice little career as a black activist witch-hunting white racists. And when there weren’t enough white witches to be found, she would (apparently) gin up a few of the usual Hate Crime Hoaxes. Life was good, until her mother and father pointed out to the press that they were white.

Many media outlets were baffled that anybody in 21st-century America would find it advantageous to give up all that White Privilege to be perceived as black. After all, we know that vicious white racists lie in wait to victimize black bodies by murdering them, raping them, and not letting them use the swimming pool.

But that raised the uncomfortable (or amusing) question: Weren’t the liberals denouncing Dolezal being transphobic?

Among non-SJWs, Ms. Dolezal’s embarrassment proved a welcome relief to many who had been baffled by how sanctimoniously the dispensers of conventional wisdom had greeted Jenner’s transparent ploy to make millions off an upcoming reality TV show about whether or not in the season finale he’d finally have himself castrated.
It just keeps getting better. Read the rest here:

Quibcag: This is a two-quibcag article. Deserves them. But the first isn't technically a quibcag, because we have a scene from Star Trek TOS instead of the usual Cute Anime Girl. But we make up for that in the second quibcag, which includes three Cute Anime Girls, from Little Witch Academia (リトルウィッチアカデミアRitoru Witchi Akademia).
