Militant Sexual Ideology and Mindless Emotivism

May 11, 2019

The sexual militants are doing an absolutely terrific job of destroying Western culture. The radical sexual anarchists have been working overtime to dismantle everything that once made the West great. All that we value is in their sights: marriage, family, children, morality, biology and reality are all being crushed under the jackboots of the activists.

And it seems that the more this ugly agenda is being promoted, the more brainless and senseless things become. The other side has long ago renounced the use of reason, rationality and common sense – the militants just emote, shout a lot, and hate on everyone who dares to differ.

If you think their goals and policies are utterly nuts, you would be right – but it is no use trying to tell them that. They are convinced that they occupy the high moral ground, and they think their rabid sexual crusade trumps everything and everyone else.

Trying to get them to stop emoting and start thinking seems to be futile. And the sad part about all this is how many folks who should know better have jumped on board this sexual wrecking crew. How many leaders, politicians, media folks, academics and others have happily signed up to this militant agenda?

They may claim to be our elites, but they are really just fools, and we are much better off listening to the average Joe on the street than these deluded wonders. Indeed, give me the common man’s take on all these matters any day of the week.

Such folks have far more sense and sensibility than all these big-cheese leaders and intellectuals who are clearly lost in space. And at the risk of being accused of nepotism here, let me bring into this discussion one commoner who is far more reasonable and reliable than most of our brainless leaders.

I refer to my wife – who of course I regard as being much more than common – but she is simply a humble housewife for the most part, and not some paid professional, public commentator, or big-time leader. But she continually comes up to me with great words of wisdom on these and other issues of the day.

So I am more than happy to draw upon her insights and intelligent analysis. Let me mention just two recent items she shared some sharp commentary on with me – both concerning the toxic trans agenda. The first has to do with some recent news reports of how our schools – and others – have declared war on the binary.

Now, if you have no idea what that means, let me explain: it seems our eggheads and fruit loop politicians really hate the concept of binary in human sexuality – the idea that there are only two sexes: male and female. That is just too much for these militants, so they have declared an all-out assault on this evil binary.

Don’t believe me? Well, simply get a load of this left-wing lunacy from an activist Victorian academic. (Hmm, why are they always academics, and always from Victoria?) Check out this recent news item. It is a short piece, so I quote it in full:

Australian schools should adopt a non-binary approach to gender in a bid to support and educate “genderfluid” and “genderqueer” students, a new guide for teachers says. Even schools without students who identify as non-binary should “shift focus away from binary gender segregation because it is useful for all students”, said leading gender expert Professor Damien Riggs, of Flinders University.

This may include flying “genderqueer flags”, including non-binary examples in teaching and becoming non-binary advocates for students in relation to their parents and carers. It is used by teachers nationally and internationally and is widely promoted to teachers via social media, seminars and conferences. It suggests teachers should avoid dividing children on the basis of gender and let students use their preferred pronouns, which may include ze, hou and thon. Even the currently accepted “they/them” pronoun may not be favoured by non-binary students, the guide says.

Rather, teachers should “check in with people about their pronouns, and do this in a sensitive and confidential way”. Many non-binary people will first disclose their non-binary gender during their school years. A clip in the online resource quotes a non-binary student calling for teachers to become “allies for trans youth”, more “out” teachers and principals, more comprehensive sex education and more teaching about LGBTI issues.

Prof Riggs said “schools can be a positive education force in sharing knowledge and non-binary people”. He said many non-binary people will first disclose their non-binary gender during their school years. Prof Riggs has contributed to more than 150 publications about gender, sexuality and mental health. He is also a psychotherapist working with transgender children under 12, which informed the contents of the guide.

When my wife heard about this and related madness on the radio, she came up to me and rightly said this: ‘So, are they going to throw out all their computers then? Are they going to get rid of all the other technology which is solidly based on – wait for it – the binary system?’

That is, in the name of inclusion and diversity, they really need to start cleaning things out – after all, we don’t want this narrow-minded and intolerant binary business found anywhere in our schools. And if you still don’t get the connection, recall how computers and the like work. This from a “geek site”:

Computers don’t understand words or numbers the way humans do. Modern software allows the end user to ignore this, but at the lowest levels of your computer, everything is represented by a binary electrical signal that registers in one of two states: on or off. To make sense of complicated data, your computer has to encode it in binary.

Binary is a base 2 number system. Base 2 means there are only two digits—1 and 0—which correspond to the on and off states your computer can understand. You’re probably familiar with base 10—the decimal system. Decimal makes use of ten digits that range from 0 to 9, and then wraps around to form two-digit numbers, with each digit being worth ten times more than the last (1, 10, 100, etc.). Binary is similar, with each digit being worth two times more than the last.
www.howtogeek.com/367621/what-is-binary-and-why-do-computers-use-it/

Just how bigoted is that?! How intolerant! Free us from the binary! Liberation now! Now, if all that sounds a bit stupid, hey, it is no less stupid than the idiocy being promoted by these leftist academics. To claim that we can and should eliminate male and female is just as stupid as saying we should scrap the very basis of our computer technology.

Consider another moronic bit of trans nonsense which my wife also made some sensible remarks about. This one I actually wrote about in my previous article. It has to do with parents losing their own children to the trans behemoth. One appalling example of this goes as follows:

Canada’s Ontario province has passed legislation that allows the government to seize children from families that refuse to accept their child’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression.” The so-called Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, or Bill 89, was approved by a vote of 63 to 23, according to The Christian Times.

It requires child protection, foster, adoption service providers, and judges to take into account and respect a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

“I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, was quoted as saying. “If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”
www.christianpost.com/news/ontario-passes-law-government-seize-children-parents-oppose-gender-transition-186332/?fbclid=IwAR3rezwdPJtqXXb8Wo9WA3RtX_DjdQR-VSPvunbNnOxCOs60Q4mZmbStqlE

When my wife read this she said words to this effect: ‘Children identify as all sorts of things – always have and always will. So, do we bend over backwards to accommodate to their every identification? Many a child identifies as being a fire fighter – so will they be allowed to join a fire fighting unit and head out to the next fire and endeavour to save lives? If not, why not?

If a child identifies as an airline pilot, in the name of inclusion and diversity and non-judgmental tolerance, will Qantas for example allow them to fly their airlines? If not, why not? Why all the bigotry and intolerance and lack of diversity?

After all, if reality is now determined solely by how and what someone identifies as, then there can be no limits. If a kid who still struggles in deciding what socks to put on in the morning can decide what sex they will be, then all these other identities must also be acknowledged and bowed down to.

End all the discrimination now! And while we are at it, I identify as a snooty, arrogant, big-deal academic, and I expect my pronouncements here to be taken seriously by the Victorian education department, by the Canadian government, and by the lamestream media.

I expect that I will be fully respected in all that I have written here, and that my remarks will get widespread coverage in all the usual media outlets. If not, why all the hatred and bigotry? If all these other elites can get away with saying stuff, why not me?

Madness is killing the West. And it is being spearheaded by the radical crazies pushing their sexual tsunami. We simply will not last much longer as a culture if all this madness is not stopped – and soon.

  • Bill,
    When I was at high school, we had to label the female and male parts of a plant, animal and human, but these days students are confused about the male and female body parts (gonads), characteristics and gametes. Teachers are now educating students that boys can have a period, but they don’t ask the students to draw and label a boy having a period because the drawing would be the same as a girl having a period. The only difference between a boy and girl having a period is the title boy and girl, and this means that the words “boy” and “girl” now mean legal person.

  • I have a very recent example of emotion versus fact. I was working at a pre-polling booth yesterday and as there were not many voters I decided to talk with the other party representatives. I started with Labour. I discovered that we could agree on a lot especially the lunacy of transgender athletes as she was a former Olympic athlete. However she had never heard of agenda 21 (labelling it as a conspiracy theory) the basis of the new left lunacy and thought that the Labour party was all about human rights. I left the Liberal party representatives till last as I thought we would have a lot in common. Was I wrong! They were very anti Australian Conservatives as we didn’t believe in SSM. The fact that we both theoretically believed in freedom of speech and small government appeared to be irrelevant to the two young people. When I presented some facts on the homosexual lifestyle they were completely flummoxed eg the existence of ex-homosexuals and the known causes of homosexuality. In other words their decisions were formed from emotion not fact. The Labour rep was going home to check Agenda 21 so hopefully she will be enlightened. Talking with others respectfully is very powerful. It is a way to heal the divisions which the hard left is pushing.

  • Hi Bill and Culturewatch 11 May 2019
    Enjoyed reading your article as always but there is one element missing as to the madness of the west – remember the saying – ‘there is a method to madness’ – in the case of the madness of the west, the equation that will complete the numbers is the element of the globalists – that is, those who subscribe to the new world order – one world- one government and peace for all. This is not a new idea and if history is read carefully, it is ongoing with identities such as Pharaoh; Caesar; Cleopatra; Alexander the great; Ghenkis Khan; Hitler and so on. Each of these identities shared the ideal that the world can only find true peace and prosperity if there is one head to one body.
    If we add this equation to the lunatic left ideals we can see that they are not so loony but have a true heart to their ideals as they will argue that the madness of the world needs to be put to an end and if it takes madness to achieve it then so be it – very much like the saying ‘if you need to break a few eggs to make an om let then so be it.
    The loony left is so involved in this globalist agenda that they needed to target every aspect of western democracy and its strong holds that they needed to cancel or equalize those strong holds such as the family (family law Act 1975) Christianity (Islam) the Biblical dicta of God created men and women (gender neutral) mineral wealth (global warming/ climate change) and so on.

  • It seems we have definitely crossed over the line between sanity and madness. All logic has gone out the door, along with those basic definitions of gender, moral absolutes and concepts of right and wrong. It seems, in fact, that we have already exceeded what was described in books such as 1984 and Brave New World. And where has it taken us? Certainly it has not caused us to become closer to the God who created us and gave us fundamental rules to live by. In ignoring these out of arrogance and pride, we have planned our own demise. Congratulations, oh brave new world, for elevating yourselves above your Creator. You have only yourselves to blame when faced with the end results of your rebellion – utter moral depravity.

  • Thanks Bill. And thanks Mrs Muehlenberg.
    I agree, the common person usually has the common sense.
    Dennis Prager has said when he talks to people and they give illogical answers, he knows they have probably gone to university.

  • Excellent article Bill.

    Your last line sums it all up:

    Madness is killing the West.

    Yet again we see more examples of what “absolute power” does to society when a government/MSM has complete control of it. Shocking.

  • Oh, the morass of weirdness and absurdity that we are being submerged in! I now laugh hysterically when I read your columns, Bill… wait… there are some people approaching me with what looks like a straitjacket… hee! hee! ha! ha! they’re coming to take me away, away!…

  • Thanks for this article, Bill.
    Perhaps these “sexual militants” should drug themselves into an induced coma — then they could pretend to exist somewhere apart from the binary reality of life and death.

    Their lies are refuted by very fact of their existence. Existence itself is binary — you either exist, or you don’t.

    The concept of “non-binary” is self-refuting. Non-binary activists reject the binary division of true and false; thus, according to themselves, what they are saying cannot be true. They need to rely on the existence of that which they deny, in order to deny it.

    I wonder if LGBTIQ activists eat fruit? A plant can bear fruit, only if its female ova have been fertilised by male pollen. Will we see anti-binary protesters trying to disrupt orchardists and greengrocers?

    Will anti-binary cyberpunks hack into every Linux and UNIX server around the world, to remove all binaries from the system, with a command like rm -rf /bin? Let’s not forget binaries lurking in /sbin and each user’s personal ~/bin as well. Never mind that rm is a binary too!

    (Just out of interest, unless there’s a file called “rm” in the current directory, the command rm rm will simply report “rm: cannot remove ‘rm’: No such file or directory”.)

    Seriously though Bill, surely you can see that the binary concept of left and right is a huge problem. Current road rules are discriminatory. Keeping to the left-hand side of the road is bigoted and dangerous. Australians of diverse directionality should have the legal right to drive on the right-hand side of the road, free from the bigotry and hatred of their fellow motorists.

    We also need to support children of diverse textual orientation, to free themselves from the bigoted constraints of reading and writing from left to right. As the UN Universal Declaration of Human Writes says, everyone has the right to write from right to left. The new Wrestpectful Writing program will stamp out dextrophobia, by teaching right-to-left writing as the safest option for achieving textual pleasure.

    Perhaps the non-binary activists will saw themselves in half vertically, so they don’t have to suffer the ignominy of having left and right sides?

  • IMHO it is body dysmorphia, esp with minors. Not to mention anymore it is made to seem “cool” to be “non binary” or whatever. Just like an anorexic or bulimic teen that weighs 80 lbs and sees themselves as “fat”. Are we supposed to give into them now and let them starve themselves?!

  • The rage against the binary understanding of human gender and sexuality may have roots in the monism and pantheism of philosophical Hinduism and Buddhism where all characteristics of people and other entities in the “phenomenal world” – and indeed the very existence of opposites – are declared to be temporary illusions that hide an alleged ultimate universal soul which has no characteristics at all.

    Could it be that “identity politics” will one day create so many new “identities” that shared meaning in human language will itself implode in a catastrophic new Tower of Babel phenomenon, where even those who think they are “on the same page” ideologically turn out to be talking at cross purposes to each other?

  • All of this adds new weight and understanding to God’s word e.g. Roman 1:18-32. In particular “because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools”.

    Yes and as your dear wife, I thought the same binary example. And as with a computer if you play with the binary it will crash and so with man.

  • John C. Wigg,

    I cannot agree with your suggestion. It is more logical to me that the rage against the binary understanding of gender and sexuality comes from Marxism‘s radical egalitarianism.

    At the time World War I broke out, whilst the majority of working-class men in Europe were in favour of the revolution that Marx had predicted, women – very few of whom then worked outside the home – were almost universally opposed to it. Although I will not name names, this contrast between atheist, socialist men and highly religious women reveals itself time and time again in biographies of people born during the decade before World War One. After the world revolution failed, Marxists realised that the social conservatism of the female population was a major factor behind this failure: many male workers who desired the overthrow of capitalism were tied to women who feared chaos from overthrowing the system.

    Consequently the new generation of Marxists realised it had to focus on changing the conservatism of women. Marxism had already campaigned – with some exceptions where it though they would lose support, as in France – for the political and economic rights of women. Marxists ultimately recognised masculinisation of women as the only way to eliminate this severe social obstacle to the acceptance of Marxism’s secular agenda, so by the 1980s it became intensely promoted, and perhaps aided by businesses who saw in working women the potential for lower real wages in countries increasingly specialising in skill-intensive manufacturing.

  • Dear John,

    The largest group of migrants nowadays are the Indians who are all Hindu or Muslim.

    Unlike the Chinese that before made up the biggest group of migrants, Hindu Indians are almost totally impossible to reach with the Gospel.

    If this immigration trend continues within a generation we will have a huge group of New Australians who hold religious beliefs fundamentally hostile to Australia’s Christian majority.

    What can we do to stop this?

  • Dear Michael,

    Not all South Asian migrants are Hindu or Muslim. There are both Roman Catholics and Protestants as well as Buddhists and Sikhs amongst those who emigrate to the Western countries from South Asia. God is still calling people to Christ from Hindu backgrounds: A certain convert to Christ from a high-caste Hindu Brahmin family happens to be my wife… Is anything too hard for the Lord?

  • Forgive me for having a second comment on this article, but I wonder, will the non-binary activists be voting in the election? Parliament is binary: the House and the Senate. A member of one cannot be a member of the other at the same time.

    Elections are binary: in each lower house electorate, one candidate will be elected, and the rest won’t be. Even though each State will elect six Senators, Senate elections are still binary, because each candidate either wins a seat, or doesn’t. And a Senator for one State can’t be a Senator for another State at the same time. And with a half-Senate election, it is true for each current Senator, that their either their seat is vacant, or it isn’t.

    Come Saturday, voters have either voted, or they haven’t. Each vote is either valid or invalid; formal or informal.

    I wonder, do non-binary activists still drink tea or coffee? To escape the tyranny of all things binary, they should mix them both together!

    P.S. In my previous comment, I totally forgot about all the binaries in /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin, d’oh!

  • G’day Bill
    Mate I get dizzy listening to the new sexual ethic getting espoused here. It’s enough to give you vertigo. Thanks again for the article and the insights from your wife. Keep soldiering on for truth as you are and prayers. Have you been released from FB confinement. I’m happy to get this out amongst my FB friends. Blessings brother.
