Insanity & Doom Update XVII

Item Science proves kids are bad for Earth. Morality suggests we stop having them.

If you buy this view of responsibility, you might eventually admit that having many children is wrong, or at least morally suspect, for standard environmental reasons: Having a child imposes high emissions on the world, while the parents get the benefit. So like with any high-cost luxury, we should limit our indulgence.

The argument is so idiotic that there is no reason to risk carpal tunnel to refute it. But because there is always some cheeseball who will claim we couldn’t really refute it, this. If there were no people, there’d be no reason to “protect” the earth, a conclusion premised on the belief people are better than any other thing on the planet.

We can also have fun imagining the author, the class A nitwit Travis Rieder, in a fit of consistency berating his poor parents over their temerity in producing tiny Travis.

Item An Ex-Google Exec Is Founding a Religion Where People Worship an AI God

Anthony Levandowski, the former Google and Uber executive currently at the centre of a bombshell lawsuit filed by Waymo, says he’s serious about starting a religion centred around super-smart artificial intelligence…

Levandowski is not the only tech luminary to worry about an super-intelligent AI, which others refer to as “strong AI” or the Singularity, although he prefers the term “Transition.”

This item proves, if it wasn’t already obvious, that intelligence is more, and even much more, than IQ. As the old saying has it, you have to be smart to be this stupid.

Item Hardcore porn at school? Calls for sex education to get more graphic

The internet has given teenagers access to so much porn, fetish and experimental sex that schools may have to get a lot more graphic when addressing classes, a study has found.

Teenagers are becoming more adventurous and are moving away from ‘traditional’ intercourse, according to researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine(LSHTM) and University College London. By monitoring sexual habits, the team found the number of 16-24s moving away from traditional sexual intercourse had doubled. Access to porn online was blamed as one of the problems.

There was never any reason for sex “education”, proved by the obvious fact that people managed to reproduce fine before there was “sex ed”, but very badly after “sex ed”. The “researchers”, as many do, confuse cause and effect.

Item How Two Reverends are Queering the Modern-Day Church

Reverend M. Barclay, who is ordained within the United Methodist Church, admits there’s not a lot of work out there for gender non-binary trans queer pastors…

[The sexually confused reverend says] When people started following Christ, it was a movement for liberation, for wholeness. We certainly recognize that Jesus Christ was crucified by the state because of his radical commitment to the marginalized and all people. It’s really unfortunate just how difficult it is to see a commitment for that same set of values by churches today. We’re looking forward to re-centering that movement aspect; not just social justice, but our internal spiritual lives as well.

In the old days, to queer something was to foul it up badly, possibly beyond repair. It means exactly the same these days.

Item When horses can be dogs: Swedish book for toddlers promotes transgender lifestyles

A book published in Sweden for toddlers and preschoolers depicting a transgender man who wears women’s clothes and lipstick, as well as a horse who believes it’s a dog, has sparked mixed reactions.

Disgust mixed with loathing?

Item Backlash as transgender weightlifter qualifies for Commonwealth Games

Laurel Hubbard has been named to the New Zealand women’s weightlifting team for the Commonwealth Games, sparking controversy in the sport…

Australian Weightlifting Federation chief executive Michael Keelan on Friday claimed Hubbard would have both a physiological and mental edge over her rivals.

Speaking to the Australian Associated Press, Keelan noted that: “If you’ve been a male and you’ve lifted certain weights and then you suddenly transition to a female, then psychologically you know you’ve lifted those weights before.

Hubbard is a man, and a big man at that, pretending to be a woman. Unless he runs up against a bigger man pretending to be a woman, he will easily beat the ladies aligned against him.

What’s a feminist to do? She insists men and women are equal, so why not have no sexual distinction in sports? Yet the feminist at least secretly believes women are superior to men (which they are, at being women), and this man Hubbard isn’t helping the belief.

You have to love this fellow Keelan’s frightened answer. If you lifted a weight before, you know you’ve lifted the weight before. Brave, brave.

  1. Some Good News, For Once

    “That is what I hope you will take from this issue of TIME. I’ve asked some of the people I respect most to write about what makes them optimistic. You’ll learn surprising facts about the state of the world, and you’ll meet heroes who save lives every day. It’s a crash course in why and how the world is improving. I hope you’ll be inspired to make it even better.”

  3. Hilarious about the trans weight-lifter. The influx of trannys into women’s sports will push all of the women out of women’s sports! hahaha Back to the kitchens!!!
