The State of Debate Today

The State of Debate Today

Let it be known that I have just interrupted the watching of one of the most infuriating videos in my life to write this rant. Dr Michael Davidson, gay cure therapist, sits calmly on Good Morning Britain and tries to explain his point of view to three blistering, blithering morons drowning in their own bile at having to stomach alternative views.

Firstly, the gay cure guy elucidates the difference between the words “aberration”, which he used to describe homosexuality, and “abomination”, a misquotation from the presenters – which trash-talking idiot #1 blatantly disregards and, unforgivably to his journalistic career, reduces to the same meaning. No one listens to the unpopular doctor for longer than ten seconds and he is doomed to the role of dog shit under Pier Morgan’s shoe, of which he is repetitively reminded whenever he tries, surprisingly calmly, to get a word in edgeways.

Now the only reason they permit themselves to act thus is because he is expressing an opinion entirely prohibited by the Western world’s latest gospel. They claim secularity, but every people needs a deity. Victimhood is the new religion – victimhood and its very select categories of people. (Whatever happened to “you can’t put me in a box, man!”?) The reign of the underdog has finally arrived, and they are relishing in it by abandoning all semblance of human reason and barking like hounds at any noise that dare go against their righteous commandments:

The recent “epidemic” of “depression” is one of my biggest beefs with society today. People are actually gaining exposure from making whiny, longwinded articles for massive media outlets talking about their PTSD induced by overly strict parenting and schoolyard bullying. How can this be happening? When did our culture turn around and show its underbelly to the big mean world? Moaning and whimpering we flock in droves to our underpaid doctors and leech antidepressant pills out of an NHS in crisis, and then feel even more sorry for ourselves as a result because our “needs” and “desires” were not “met appropriately”.

When I myself was a moody teen, I used to wish I’d had a rougher life just so’s I could complain more legitimately. Today I see that such fantasies are no longer necessary, because now everyone’s complaint is valid and worthy not only of consideration, but thorough compensation, too. Hooray! What a shame (read: thank God) I outgrew that stage before I could exploit it.

Our middle-class first world has officially become overly comfortable. Far too full of humourless, well-off, middle-class babies are getting showered with attention for describing their “symptoms” in a semipoetic and fully public way. I think maybe this little epidemic is maybe a little touch overhyped. In fact, calling it “depression” only became fashionable about 40 years ago.

Why LGBT Pride Month is (mostly) Bullshit.

Why are you proud of your sexuality?

It seems this is the guise the LGBT movement uses to hide their real ulterior motives. Before moving on to what the movement is really trying to accomplish, allow me to go along with its poor alibi. I can agree that no one should be ashamed of anything in their identity which they have no control over (although that is apparently still up for debate, just ask my favourite person), but pushing that we should actually be proud of our sexuality or gender is a bit too much of a stretch, even for me, with my extremely socially liberal tendencies (ha, ha).

Allow me to break this down using homosexuality as an example. You are proud of being gay. If you are a man, you are proud of the fact that the chemicals in your brain react to external stimuli, let’s say an attractive man, and subsequently send blood to your penis, causing an erection. You’re essentially proud of a perfectly natural human bodily function. You may as well be proud of taking a shit.

Why I’m Pro-Choice (Within Reason)

Why I’m Pro-Choice (Within Reason)

As a steadfast pro-choicer since as long as I can remember, I have recently made myself read and listen to as many pro-life arguments as possible. Let me cover these arguments and my rebuttals here and if anyone has anything to add or subtract, make yourself heard.

Now, I’m probably not going to say anything new here. Let’s not beat around the bush. I’m pro-choice firstly because I’m a young woman who realises that with one small mistake, I might bring my already unstable life to crash down all around me like the wrath of God. All because of a moment’s blindness to reality. I’m lucky to live in an era where I can fix that mistake relatively painlessly, few questions asked.

Why I’m Pro-Life

Why I’m Pro-Life

The first thing I feel needs to be addressed, is that this discussion dwells as a small controversy within a much larger topic. I believe that before we ask the question “should I have an abortion?”, we should ask “how did it get to this stage in the first place?” This is a broader discussion that would be of great benefit to those on both sides of the abortion debate. If we could all agree that every step should be taken to avoid the situation in which an abortion is to be considered, and work together to make it easier to avoid, both parties would be much happier, and more productive.

My main argument is that abortion is always immoral, regardless of circumstance. Killing an innocent human being is always immoral. Because I assume that most (if not all) people would agree with that statement, and that a great way to hammer home my points is to deconstruct the arguments of my opposition, I will go through and deconstruct the best arguments in favour of killing babies, for your own convenience.

Notice that I always refer to the life inside the womb as a baby, the same as the NHS. I always use language that doesn’t deheumanise a baby.

The Problems with Diversity

The Problems with Diversity

One of the most frustrating things that our society now values is diversity, something I have never seen as an inherently good or bad thing. Speaking as an individual that would be labelled a radical 60 years ago, a classical liberal 30 years ago, and a bigot today, I declare I could not care less about your race, your gender, your sexuality or your religion. I only care about your actions and your values.

According to my set of values, I would not hold a group of diverse criminals in higher esteem than a group of homogenous criminals. Because diversity has been so unanimously accepted as a positive in mainstream British culture, my position is an unpopular one. Call me old-fashioned, but I am yet to be convinced that any protected characteristic provides an individual, or indeed a collective, with more or less virtue.

MSM on Putin: Lies, Slander and Propaganda

MSM on Putin: Lies, Slander and Propaganda

Surely humanity has now encountered the world’s second best personification of ultimate evil: Vladimir Putin. You must have heard of his unforgivable crimes against humanity; vicious tales of corruption during the Sochi games; “damning” tales of the murder of political dissidents and journalists; the spreading of Kremlin propaganda through government owned press (but who owns the American media?); the unlawful taking of Crimea; supporting Assad’s murderous regime. Surely all this suffices to identify him as a dictator with fascist tendencies – no room for redemption with wickedness this profound. Continue reading “MSM on Putin: Lies, Slander and Propaganda”
