Transgender ‘Students’ Defend Gulags

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, author of The Gulag Archipelago, is spinning in his grave.

As part of their feud with feminists, “transgender rights campaigners”–a euphemism for seriously disturbed college students–at Goldsmith Looniversity, London, have argued that the infamous Soviet gulags were really nice places for “education” and “rehabilitation” (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/09/11/soviet-labour-camps-compassionate-educational-institutions-say/). Not forced labor concentration camps in Siberia.

Feminists resented screwed-up males trying to hijack women’s privileges by claiming themselves to be women. Well, that got the trannies going, and one of them tweeted that  the objecting feminists ought to be sent to a gulag for “re-education.” And that got the feminists going.

In support of their recommendation to send those who disagree with them to the gulag–there aren’t any gulags, yet, in Britain: but give it time–the trannies, er, “defended” their preposterous comments. Like so:

“The ideas of TERFS–” I don’t know what a TERF is, and I prefer to leave it that way for as long as possible–“and anti-trans bigots literally kill and ought to be eradicated through re-education.” And “Sending a bigot to one [a gulag] is actually a compassionate non-violent course of action.”

No, there wasn’t any violence at the gulags! Just a lot of classroom time, partying, cross-country skiing in that bracing Siberian winter, and maybe some amateur theatrics. Sort of a summer camp for adults, plus unendurable cold. Oh, and the food was really good, too!

Go ahead, build a bunch of gulags and send your rivals there; and then, once they get into power, they can send you there. Plenty of relaxing gulag time for all.

It is probably unnecessary to comment further on the deranged wickedness that now constitutes a college education.

    My favorite sage, a Jewish carpenter who lived roughly 2,000 years ago, once said that no house divided against itself can stand. I find this exchange quite interesting, because it reveals that selfishness and self-centered thinking are part and parcel of many of these movements.

    Gulags were no fun and if they educated anyone it was only learning to hate the people that put them in the gulags. If people really believe such tripe, they are in for a rude awakening.

    Because violence and hate judging a whole group of people you know nothing about is the only answer of Christ’s Love?

      When people prattle on about the gulags being nice places, you just naturally conclude they’re moral imbeciles.
      As a revolt against God’s created order, transgenderism is evil per se.
      And why you have to thrown in an unsupported and false accusation of “violence”–well, leftists always do that, don’t they?

        That’s a great point, Lee. Violence seems to be a word that the Left likes to use in a very nuanced manner.

        Because violence is more than just physical. It’s emotional violence as well as economical, mental and intellectual violence. All of are used to destroy a person’s self value. That’s what.

          We are all expected to dance to the tune of the transgender delusion, and be branded as Haters if we don’t.
          Well, I’m not dancing, and my “self-value” certainly does not depend on your opinion of me.

            Well stated, Lee.

            It is not my place to tell others what to do and I will not force my personal standards on anyone else, but I will not allow someone else to force their personal standards on me. Not agreeing with someone else’s behavior is not, in and of itself, a form of violence. If someone seekers to redefine the word “violence” to their ends I am not bound by their new definition.

            If I decide that the word “thief” now applies to anyone that doesn’t give me free money, I can throw the word thief around, but that doesn’t make my new definition valid. In all honesty, if someone has to redefine words to make their point, it only serves to illuminate the weakness of their position.

            And… what happens if everybody does the transgender thing? The human race dies out. Q.E.D.

            I don’t think that choice will ever approach becoming preponderant.

            Democrats believe they become the majority by cobbling together a mosaic of weird micro-minorities.

            Are any normal people Democrats anymore? And if so–why?
