Gender Ideology is a Thought Disorder
Victoria Fielding's masterclass in making no sense
This week, communications PhD-holder Victoria Fielding has been amusing me with her basic failure to, well, communicate. It has been a testament to the way that gender ideology can cause serious disturbance to simple cognition.
It all started with Fielding trying to call out Kellie-Jay Keen and positioning herself as a Good Person™ compared to the mean women’s rights campaigner because, you see, she is comfortable sharing female spaces with anyone who does not identify as a man.
The fantastic Maya Forstater tried to make some sense of how a man’s self-declaration of non-manness makes him suddenly completely unthreatening in women’s spaces, to which Fielding insisted that she simply accepts that self-declared identity and welcomes him right in.
Sall Grover decided to put Fielding’s values to the test with bearded male mosque-bomber, “Emily.”
Without hesitation, Fielding declared “Emily” to be a woman—which I supposed must mean that any woman who would object to “her” in female spaces would face Fielding’s wrath and judgment.
Later, Fielding reiterated that she is afraid of men—unless, I guess, those men bomb mosques and call themselves Emily.
Somehow, Fielding lives in constant fear of men sneaking into female spaces, but she welcomes with open arms the men that are actually bold enough to put on a wig and waltz right in.
As these things always go, Feilding eventually started comparing women who don’t want to share female spaces with men like Emily to Nazis. Because of course.
She pulls out all the stops, moralizing, telling other women that their words are not acceptable, and even invoking suicide as a manipulation tactic.
Fielding feels perfectly comfortable expressing her fear and distrust of people she considers to be men, implying that, as a group, they are potentially dangerous to women. At the same time, she chastises other women for their own fear of men, no matter how they identify. Because she is a hypocrite, this irony is completely lost on her.
She also spent a great deal of time calling other women bigots, and she felt comfortable doing so because she appointed herself as the final authority on whose views were worthy of tolerance or not.
(Hint: bigotry is usually defined as intolerance towards the views of others, particularly on the basis of their group membership.)
But the pièce de résistance came when Kellie-Jay Keen herself chimed in to comment on the size of Fielding’s hands.
Fielding instantly remembered what a woman is and was incredibly offended by the thought that Keen implied she wasn’t one.
You see this kind of thing with many women who swear up and down that trans women are women. If that were true, then why would this be such an “unhinged” suggestion?
Because she doesn’t actually believe it, of course. Claiming she would accept a man as a woman the second he declares he is one is just a way for Fielding to make herself appear better than others.
But suggest that she might be a man like dear Emily, and she instantly shows her true colors.
