“dangerous ideology”

Dammit, I swear I could do MONTHS just on the Stupid I get from SmartNews.

Today it’s The National Review, somehow showing up in “Recommended For You”, with an article and audio from three young women who supposedly had thought they were transgender and now I guess realize they aren’t? Or some such.  It’s a festival of Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria i.e. bullshit, and we’ve seen this all before with the kids supposedly driven into transgenderism or Communism or Green New Deal or whatever by their peers or by the neglect of their peers, works either way I guess, but the NR finishes up their commentary by calling transgenderism “a dangerous ideology”.

Yes, that’s right, “a dangerous ideology”. As if these kids had joined ISIL or something. As if they were out demanding murder. As if, I DON’T KNOW, MAYYBEEE they had shot forty or so people because of a real goddamn dangerous ideology.

Who knows whether these kids are real or not? It’s not like the Right has a particularly good track record of that kind of trolling. But I can’t help but wonder how many kids are going to be shown this by their parents who’ll fall for this “ideology” crap. Which will be more “dangerous” than a discussion of transgender on Twitter.
