Sam Gerrans: “Gender is not a spectrum, it is a polarity”
“And this is the point. Gender is not a spectrum, it is a polarity.
If its ‘ideals’ are opposing, that is part of its purpose. They are designed to complement and perfect each other – while remaining distinctly different.
Any society that loses its grasp on this obvious reality has no future – a point that for me is instructive.
It may be that some small numbers of girls are destined to be great scientists – and bully for them. But the vast majority of women are not going to be found crying into their cups in their dotage because they missed their calling as nuclear physicists. Whereas the number inflicting their painful neuroses upon the rest of us because they were duped into buying into feminism and trashing femininity, and thus find themselves with no husband or children, is so commonplace it has become a modern-day stereotype.
I detect a polarizing agenda running through the media narrative. It has the insanity of Cultural Marxism on the one hand, and the insanity of so-called Sharia law on the other. These two agenda items will naturally be brought into conflict.
Those familiar with the Hegelian dialectic will recognize the familiar ingredients – thesis and antithesis – as the set-up for the inevitable synthesis. What that synthesis will be, I can’t say, other than it will have nothing to do with what normal men and women normally want.
What I am sure of is that both the progressives and Sharia-touting Islamists are unwitting pawns in bringing that end about – and that both will continue to be useful to that small clique which decides social policy and declares war on those who wish to have sane, generative, enduring families.”
