The Ides of Pride

Can you believe we're halfway through Pride Month already? I haven't even begun my toddler-tuck-swimsuit shopping yet!

David Strom highlights this telling poll finding from Pew: leftwingers are largely anti-family and anti-human-childbirth.


Even the NYT admits that the "success narratives" pushed by the left do not include childbirth as win or even something to wish for.

For young, secular, politically progressive men and women, having children has become something of an afterthought. Liberal conventional wisdom encourages people to spend their 20s on journeys of personal and professional self-discovery and self-fulfillment. Children are treated as a bonus round, something to get to only after completing a long list of achievements: getting a degree, forging a satisfying and well-established career, buying a house, cultivating the ideal romantic partnership.

The standards of readiness for family are at once so high and so vague that it's hardly a surprise when people fail to reach them. Indeed, the data suggest that people are having children later than they used to and are having fewer than they'd like.

For progressives, waiting to have children has also become a kind of ethical imperative. Gender equality and female empowerment demand that women's self-advancement not be sacrificed on the altar of motherhood. Securing female autonomy means that under no circumstances should a woman be rushed into a reproductive decision -- whether by an eager partner or tone-deaf chatter about ticking biological clocks. Unreserved enthusiasm for having children can come across as essentially reactionary.

Over the past four years, we've conducted interviews and surveys with hundreds of young Americans about their attitudes toward having children. These conversations revealed that the success narratives of modern liberal life leave little room for having a family. Women who want kids often come to that realization belatedly, at some point in their early 30s -- the so-called panic years. If they are lucky, their partner (if they have one) will fall in line. If they are not, they face a choice of returning to the dating pool, freezing their eggs (if they haven't done so already), single parenting or giving up their hope of having kids of their own.

In this way, the logic of postponement that has been promoted by liberals and progressives -- and bolstered by overblown optimism about reproductive technologies -- robs young people of their agency. How many children they have, and even whether they have them at all, is increasingly a decision made for them by circumstance and cultural convention.

This is not just a recipe for unhappiness; it also reflects a deep confusion.

Leftwingers confused about the good? Surely you can't be serious (and yes I will call you Shirley).

A doctor blew the whistle on surgeons cutting off little girl's breasts at Texas Children's Hospital.

The completely non-weaponized DOJ has indicted him for it, spuriously claiming he violated HIPPA.

The Department of Justice has indicted Dr. Eithan Haim, a little-known surgeon who exposed Texas Children's Hospital for secretly conducting transgender surgeries and treatments on minors, on four felony counts related to his alleged violation of a medical-records law.

Last year, Haim anonymously leaked evidence of the child sex-change procedures to conservative journalist Christopher Rufo. The documents revealed that Texas Children's Hospital had continued running its transgender program, despite announcing that the program had been discontinued in accordance with Governor Greg Abbott's 2022 directive equating such medical interventions with child abuse.

The Houston-based hospital was ultimately forced to stop its trans-medical practices after a state law took effect in September 2023, prohibiting drug and surgical "gender-affirming" interventions for minors.

U.S. marshals notified Haim of the indictment at his home this week and summoned him to court for violating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Haim and his legal team, who don't yet know the full nature of the charges, are set to appear in court on June 17.

"My client is anxious to get to trial to get his side of the story told," Haim's attorney Marcella Burke told National Review. "I am confident this will result in the correct decision being made."

In January, Haim publicly identified himself as the whistleblower in an effort to protect himself from retaliation by the DOJ and the Department of Health and Human Services. Greeted by federal officials at his doorstep last June, the general surgeon discovered that he was a potential target in a criminal investigation regarding his leaking of medical records. The prosecutor claims he failed to redact sensitive patient information.

Meanwhile, the Biden DOJ targets a 75-year-old grandmother in deteriorting health for a 2-year prison sentence for protesting abortion. Jule Kelly has the transcript, and the bloodthirstiness of the Biden prosecutor, and the cavalier attitude of the leftwing judge are repulsive.

But don't you dare say the DOJ is weaponized against the left's enemies, and civilization itself.

Matt Walsh has more excerpts from the Trans Terrorists' journals. See the link for the excerpts. I'll just quote part of his commentary:

Matt Walsh @MattWalshBlog

1/ EXCLUSIVE: The Daily Wire has obtained materials written by the trans shooter who killed six people at a Christian school in Nashville. The writings -- concealed for over a year -- reveal the shooter's anti-Christian, pro-trans, and perverse ideas in the weeks before the attack.

2/ In one passage, the shooter rails against "Christian friends" that her parents have encouraged her to make. She writes, "Parents actually believe religion can change nature. That could explain why I don't practice religion anymore. Let kids think for themselves."

Religion can't change nature, but surgery and pills can. Got it.

This isn't just the ravings of a murderous lunatic -- this is core Trans Doctrine.

3/ The shooter, a cognitively impaired and mentally ill 28-year-old woman, at times still frames herself as a child in her writing, saying "kids are not robots, we are the future!"

4/ Separately, she writes: "F*ck parents like them [who oppose trans ideology] who think of themselves first, and their preference of conservative religion..." and how she'd "kill to have had parents" who'd have given her so-called "puberty blockers" as a child.

5/ This is despite admitting that her own natural female puberty "didn't bother me too much." She confesses that it wasn't until her early 20s that she first encountered gender ideology. "I finally found the answer -- that changing ones gender is possible."

6/ That's one of the many problems with radical gender ideology. The people least able to navigate their own care -- children and cognitively impaired adults -- are not just unintentional casualties. They are the targets. They seek answers, and gender ideology comes knocking.

And no one treats their untreated mental illnesses. The Chop is supposed to fix all of their mental illnesses.

7/ Far from an answer, it apparently emboldened this lifelong mental patient to commit an act of horrific violence. If the shooter was a white supremacist, her manifesto would be released. But, over a year on, the White House and FBI continue to block it.

8/ Recall that, in the wake of this shooting, the White House claimed that trans people -- not the murdered Christians -- were "under attack." They didn't want you to realize that, in her own words, the shooter had described her disdain for Christians very clearly.

9/ The White House seems to want to hide the shooter's detailed descriptions of her gender dysphoria, and its link to her interest in pornography and acting out of graphic sexual fantasies with dolls, one of whom she performed "plastic surgery" on to give him a pretend penis.

10/ The writings are distressing and highly emotional. At one point, she states, "Puberty = life sentence. The people in this world adds more bullets to shoot violent thoughts into my head on full-auto. I hate parental views; how my mom sees me as a daughter."

11/ The shooter adopted anti-parent, anti-Christian, pro-trans views, and, according to Crowder's previous leak, also railed against "white privilege." Authorities are claiming no apparent political motivation while what we've seen reads like an homage to radical leftism.

Claiming that she's a "kid" at age 28, railing about puberty -- this suggests that her mental illness was anger about no longer being a child. She tried to remain in a state of arrested development, and was angry that she couldn't live forever as a child with no responsibility.

Of course, no one treated her for that. Here are your pills, drive through, have a nice day.

A new front for Fat Liberation: "Fatties for a Free Palestine."

Don't worry, everyone. We're almost through "PrIdE Month."
