Anyone else feel like this? I don’t seek out transgender ideology because I don’t agree with it in its current form whatsoever but I feel like it’s inescapable. As a life long left leaning person most of the media I consume is along those lines (and let’s face it, entertainment is very left wing in general) but I’m rapidly becoming alienated from lots of the things I used to enjoy because even though it should have absolutely nothing to do with transgenderism, it gets snuck in all the time. Of course, because now trans women are women, anything to do with women has to include them. But it’s not just that. I wince every time someone lists their pronouns for no goddamned reason in the My Favorite Murder minisodes (episodes where people write in with their personal stories). Thank you, Elizabeth, for adding your pronouns are she/her, no one would ever have bloody guessed. They also started saying “pregnant people” at one point and I nearly threw my phone in the toilet. The worst offender is Page 7 from LPOTL, I have had to officially stop listening to that as one of the hosts, a woman named Molly with two children and “a personality” has decided she is trans - but she’s keeping “she/her” but she’s changing her name to MJ. I can’t listen any more. Her smug rejection of her own female body - which birthed and breastfed her two children (at least one of which is a girl, good luck kiddo) - seems to be down to her opinion that “she’s not like the other girls” and likes wearing boy’s clothes and “is weird”. I’m so tired of women like this who pigeonhole every other woman and think they are so unique and wonderful so they must be different. I also don’t understand how she is trans when she’s clearly non-binary... JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. (Seriously, we’re all non-binary because gender is made up.) I should have given up when they slammed JK Rowling without understanding a word she said and it’s so clear that “MJ” has been the driving force of deplatforming women on that podcast for years. (But sexualising them is fine apparently)
Anyone else have this problem? Why does this nonsense infect everything so readily?! Does anyone have any no-nonsense podcasts they can recommend?
