Ivy League academic, continuing Big Left’s urge to appropriate and pervert every aspect of society no matter how innocuous or innocent, progsplains that the classic claymation Christmas special Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is actually classically “queer”, and that conservatives who object just don’t understand Christmas:
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” is a “queer” icon whether “conservatives” like it or not, according to one Ivy League professor.
Columbia University English professor Jennifer Finney Boylan, has offered a whole new take on the classic Christmas claymation “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” claiming that the film is “the queerest holiday special ever” in a recent New York Timesopinion piece.
But wait. There’s more.
Boylan began a gender transition to live as a woman at the age of 42. In her article, she compares her life experience to the Christmas classic, saying, “the subtext of this ridiculous story was the truth of my own improbable life. A fabulously blond elf who doesn’t like to make toys? A reindeer who is cast out by those who are supposed to love him, on account of an accident of birth?”
Of course “she” did.
For those moments when Avery Librelle seems just too realistic…
But forget what you know, because progsplain. Also shut up hater.
Boylan notes that she expects “conservatives” to be “infuriated by this suggestion,” adding that “conservatives seem to miss the point of a lot of things having to do with Christmas.” This supposedly includes that Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas’ employs a “fundamental critique of capitalism”
There are times I think a civil war may be the best thing that could happen to this country.
