Here’s a quick introduction to the case of David Reimer, a boy famously raised as girl after a botched circumcision, who recently killed himself. The Brothers Judd give a longer account with lots of links. The experiment was a colossal failure but was reported as a huge success, with loads of honors for the quack doctor who promoted it, because dominant social forces wanted it that way. I can’t help but think that the case is helpful background for understanding other ventures in gender reconstruction, for example the one Mrs. Lewis is now forcing on Massachusetts or for that matter the campaign against “gender-based discrimination” in general. You can’t just abolish 1,000,000,000 years of sexual differentiation because it’s not PC, or so it seems to me.
Meanwhile, elsewhere on the tolerance front:
- Dhimmi Watch points out that a British television documentary that shows Muslim men grooming under-age white girls for sex has been shelved, after lobbying by Muslim groups and intervention by the police, because of fears it could incite racial violence. The law, it seems, forbids the broadcast of materials that could even inadvertently stir up racial tension, at least near election time. One feature of the tolerant, inclusive and multicultural society is that you can’t discuss outrageous conduct for fear of other outrageous conduct. (There have been lots of racial problems in Bradford, where the program was filmed.)
- And on the combined reconstructing-sex-and-grooming-underage-girls front, it appears that there is now an active sex toys for tots scene among Catholic (and other) elementary schoolgirls in New York City. Words fail me. (Cite via Larry Auster.)
