The Rape of the Language

Once again journalists have carried off our means of communication like so many Sabine women or girls of Shiloh. Except, the Sabine women and girls of Shiloh actually were women. What journalists have carried off is the actual meaning of our words. It is hard to determine if the journalists are merely useful idiots being used to promote and foster the sad homosexual agenda or if they are willing propagandists for the cause. I am inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they are not idiots, but willing propagandists, masquerading as journalists.

Oxymoronic Media Mantra — Look! A Pregnant Man!

Like so many carnival barkers standing in front of the freak show tent, media outlets from the homosexual magazine The Advocate, to Oprah, to ABC TV News, pitch the gullible public on the newest weird wonder — the pregnant man!

“Step right up folks! See the AMAZING PREGNANT MAN! I know it sounds
impossible, but it’s true: A PREGNANT MAN! Just check you brain at the door and you too will have to admit that it REALLY IS A PREGNANT MAN! Even the TV and major newspapers have written about and intervened this wonder!

“See his pet jackalope, which he captured while on a snipe hunt with reporters.”

Except she isn’t a man, just a woman who wishes she were a man, masquerading as a man and the reporters writing about it seem to be related to jackalopes on the equine side of the family.

Why Can’t a Woman Be More Like a Man?

Because, Henry, you twit, she’s a woman! And all the wishing and hoping and surgery in the world cannot change that fact, even if some appearances may be altered. In this case the woman in question, Tracy LaGondino, AKA Thomas Beatie, had a double radical mastectomy and took injections of male hormones, which explains the facial hair and flat chest, until she decided to get pregnant via at-home artificial insemination, at which time she stopped taking the male hormones and began ovulating and menstruating again until she became pregnant, since all her female reproductive organs are still in place.

What to Expect in the Next Few Weeks — Father Gives Birth to Baby!

I can’t resist scooping the headlines we will see in a few weeks, when “dad” is expected to give birth. And after a period of post-partum recovery we can expect a new round of interviews, and articles, complete with cooing over the poor misbegotten baby. Pity the child.

As H.L. Mencken once observed: “No one in this world has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.” The American media and political class are cashing in. How much stranger can it get? I am calling my local country music radio station and asking them to play that old song, “I Am My Own Grandpa.” Maybe that will make things seem more normal, whatever normal is. One thing is sure. What seems “normal” lately sure isn’t natural.

  • Although it isn’t fair to blame the journalists – we’ve all had our role to play in this breakdown of our society. I am reminded of G.K. Chesterton’s famous observation, when asked to submit an article to a prominent newspaper concerning what was wrong with the world. Other writers had submitted long essays about poverty, war, and moral depravity – but what was Chesterton’s famous response? “What is wrong with the world? I am.”

    I pray that this WOMAN realizes the beauty and gift of her femininity now having carried a child in her womb. I pray the kicks of her baby and the changes of her body help her realize that being a woman is a beautiful thing. And I pray after she has the baby that she nurses her child and is fully able to understand the mystery of life. More than anything though, I pray for her child.

    Dear Traugs, she CAN’T “nurse” the baby: she had a double radical mastectomy! So anxious to become the man she isn’t, she has become an “it”. I feel sorry for her, not having a clue who and what she was meant to be (which, I think, was your point). I feel sorrier for her “wife” who, I believe, brought her own children into this “family”. I feel sorriest for the baby who starts life with three strikes against it. Will the poor little lamb ever know what “normal” and “natural” are?

    Further and further down the slippery slope. Down is up and up is over there. The people have NO self esteem or sense of decency. I WILL NOT GIVE UP(OR OVER OR WHATEVER).

    1. The restoration of unity among all Christians is one of the principal concerns of the Second Vatican Council. Christ the Lord founded one Church and one Church only. However, many Christian communions present themselves to men as the true inheritors of Jesus Christ; all indeed profess to be followers of the Lord but differ in mind and go their different ways, as if Christ Himself were divided.(1) Such division openly contradicts the will of Christ, scandalizes the world, and damages the holy cause of preaching the Gospel to every creature.
