A spot-on article that clearly identifies the hypocrisy of global companies who have boycotted the state of North Carolina whilst continuing to do business in countries where gays, lesbians and transgender persons are imprisoned.*
“Although many large businesses, including PayPal, Apple, Microsoft, and Coca-Cola, have criticized North Carolina’s new locker room and bathroom law as “discriminatory” to LGBT people, those same four corporations do business in Middle Eastern countries where homosexual conduct and cross-dressing are illegal.
In Saudi Arabia, for instance, homosexual conduct is “punishable by death or flogging,” according to the U.S. State Department. In Kuwait, practicing homosexuals can face prison terms up to 10 years; cross-dressers can go to prison for up to three years.
PayPal, Apple, Microsoft, and Coca-Cola do business in both Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
CNSNews.com contacted the press offices of PayPal, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, and Apple by e-mail and telephone asking them to explain their opposition to North Carolina’s bathroom bill while simultaneously conducting business with Saudi Arabia and Kuwait where homosexual behavior is illegal, and where gays and transgender people are imprisoned. None of the companies answered CNSNews.com’s questions.”

“The speech of military strategists and of politicians is characterised by a narcissistic finality. There can be no real reply to the careful and reasonable calculation of the balance of [INSERT THE DOMINANT TRANS-ACTIVIST IDEOLOGY HERE] mass killing in a nuclear war, because everything is so organised that you are persuaded not to notice what it is you are talking about. And when that happens, you cannot intelligently converse or argue: all there is is the definitive language imposed by those who have power. It is a natural extension of the language habitually used to describe the processes of other kinds of war.”
“The main point in all this is that creating a language that cannot be checked by or against any recognisable reality is the ultimate mark of power. What Merton characterises as “double-talk, tautology, ambiguous cliche, self-righteous and doctrinaire pomposity and pseudoscientific jargon” is not just an aesthetic problem: it renders dialogue impossible; and rendering dialogue impossible is the desired goal for those who want to exercise absolute power.”

Transwomen are no more immune to being crazy, violent and/or abusive than anyone else, much as transactivists would like us to believe otherwise, when they say there has not been a “single reported case” of transwomen assaulting women in bathrooms.
