I know many of you are scared of guns, but just think of them like fire extinguishers, but for murderers.
What’s behind the transgender movement, a cultural tsunami so powerful it can tear apart even so traditional an institution as Nova Classical Academy? Transgender ideology advances under the banner of progress and enlightened thinking. Yet its fundamental claim—that a human being can change his or her sex—“is starkly, nakedly false,” according to Dr. Paul McHugh, who served for twenty-six years as psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Johns Hopkins pioneered sex-change surgery, but abandoned it in the 1970s after research revealed that it did not improve the mental health of patients.
Cognitive behavioral therapy tries to teach people to short-circuit/disrupt/desensitize that triggering circumstance until it no longer triggers them (or at least triggers them less) and thus they keep the cascade of bad brain chemicals from gushing too much.
Lukianov’s amazing insight was that just as cognitive behavioral techniques could be used to desensitize someone to an emotional trigger, so could an evil form of the techniques be used to hypersenisitize someone to an emotional trigger.
What you’re seeing on college campuses, on social media, and in society generally is the triumph of these evil forms of malevolent cognitive behavioral conditioning to encourage people not to keep their wits about them and stand strong in the face of adversity, but to collapse into a twitchy puddle of panic and mental disarray if they so much as see a word they don’t like.
And thus colleges which once produced some of the boys who stormed Normandy are now producing Adult Babies who need Play-Doh recovery rooms if they hear that American Sniper is being screened at the rec center.

Childhood itself has changed greatly during the past generation. Many Baby Boomers and Gen Xers can remember riding their bicycles around their hometowns, unchaperoned by adults, by the time they were 8 or 9 years old. In the hours after school, kids were expected to occupy themselves, getting into minor scrapes and learning from their experiences. But “free range” childhood became less common in the 1980s.
For example, if the childanimal you are speaking with declares:
“You’re micro-aggressing me.”
…then be sure to respond,
“Ah, then please sincerely accept my most micro apologies.”

The ECRI report establishes a direct causal link between some tough headlines in British tabloids and the security of the Muslims in the UK. In other words, the British press is allegedly inciting readers to commit “Islamophobic” acts against Muslims:
I don’t see the problem…
The determination of our rulers to stamp out large parts of observable reality is what is eroding their legitimacy.
And then it’s also interesting to list the things parents have trouble preventing their kids from doing:
1) Getting an abortion.
2) Cutting off their genitals and taking hormones to grow lady breasts, perhaps in the eventual hope of landing a job in Hollywood, on Broadway, or at the State Department.
As another invaluable service to evolutionary biology, this column will follow the evolution of Donald Trump into Hillary Clinton (as begins to seem likely). I expect no evidence of intelligent design, but will keep my eye out. We will likely find that a new and mutant organism,when exposed to selective pressures in an extant ecosystem, will evolve to resemble it.
