When I first saw this article, I saw it as an example of how Big Left approaches dating and the courtship process,. I figured that if this was their approach to coupling, they will stop reproducing completely within a generation.
The article is about what “intersectional feminists” should ask on first dates. And the writer establishes their authority with a bang:
As a queer femme of color…
Among “intersectional” theory buffs, calling oneself a “queer femme of color” is similar to walking into a room and saying “I am Amazon’s vice president of development”, or “I am a lieutenant general “.; It’s an exceptionally high rank within the “intersectional” hierarchy. It’s the trifecta of injury sectionalism; gay, female (or at least identifying as such) and some form of “color”.
And I thought – “What prime fisking material”.
And I almost got started with exactly that – until it occurred to me:
- This stuff fisks itself.
- I trust you, the audience, to read this and fisk it to a fine sheen all on your own.
- It brought something else to mind.
And that’s this: as unlikely as it is that many children will be produced by couples who meet the requirements the author above details, it’s a big country and a bigger world; somewhere, somehow, children will be born and/or adopted.
And then raised in households run by “couples” – I hesitate to call them that, really, since those who start a “relationship” with a lecture on intersectionalism are likely emotional bullies, and those whio’d form couples with them are people who are just fine being bullied.
And then, those offspring will enter their teenage years, and encounter a real world outside the academic identity-mongering victomology-focused bubble their “parents” will raise them in.
And like any teenager, they’ll rebel. They’ll cast about for their own identity.
All by way of saying, in about 2035 through 2040, I see a wave of popularity for Ted Nugent, for “Playboy” (the vintage ones, not the post-Hef PC variety), and fraternity drinking and hazing like we haven’t seen since the eighties.
