Identity Politics in Identity Dysphoria

Last week, as ISIS continues to behead its way across the Middle East, Russian Troops massed along the current Ukraine border, and China continued to build its island aircraft carrier in the South China Sea while hacking into US Government sites, the big news that drew big attention was Bruce Jenner's transition to Caitlyn Jenner

I really didn't want to waste any blogspace on this story.  But there is one aspect of this social feeding frenzy I find fascinating:   And that is how the revolution is starting on the appetizer portion towards feasting on it's own.  Many of Jenner's critics come from the left, playing fast & loose with the issue of gender identity.

Mark Steyn covers this at length in Deathbed Eurocentrism, and Rampant Ciscentrism.

But this whole affair has opened a can of trans-worms:  Once again, Mark Steyn details the birth pains of the "new."

Michael Brown warns of more trans-sanity coming down the pike.

This is another reason why I chose to post about this topic, it's the first I've heard of "transabled."  That is, people wanting to disabled by choice.

Anyway, while leftists engage in "American Narcissism", the rest of us will try to go back to minimizing our exposure to trash TV/News, and focus on more important issues...
