“Some states have enacted laws and policies that may affect 2SLGBTQI+ persons,” the Canadian government is advising. These 2SLGBTQI+ persons “could face certain barriers and risks when you travel outside Canada,” particularly in the USA.
“2S” means “Two-Spirit,” a term that “reflects complex Indigenous understandings of gender roles, spirituality, and the long history of sexual and gender diversity in Indigenous cultures.” According to the Canadian government, 2SLGBTQI+ “recognizes Two-Spirit people as the first 2SLGBTQI+ communities.”
LGBTQ are, respectively, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer. “I” means “intersex” and “considers sex characteristics beyond sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, and + is “inclusive of people who identify as part of sexual and gender diverse communities, who use additional terminologies.”
This ever-increasing aggregation of letters, numbers and symbols comes billed as an acronym. It is actually a construct, in a special kind of way.
“Homosexuality and transgenderism are two utterly different phenomena,” explains Bruce Bawer, author of A Place at the Table: The Gay Individual in American Society, but both groups are now enlisted in “the LGBTQ+ family.” That makes about as much sense as the VBTPW family – Vegetarian Butcher Terrorist Pacifist Whatever – but this movement is not about making sense.
What we are dealing with today, Bawer contends, isn’t gender dysphoria but “a transgender ideology in which a man who thinks he’s a woman isn’t suffering from a mental disorder; he actually is a women, and always has been.” And vice-versa, all told a “revolution against reality itself,” but there’s more to it.
In its ongoing divide-and-con game, the left has pitted peasants against nobles, workers against bosses, blacks against whites, Hispanics against “Anglos,” and so forth. The trans revolution arrays those who, like people though the ages, recognize biological and scientific reality against those who deny it. Beyond boilerplate charges of “transphobia,” the trans types now imagine that they are victims of “genocide,” a justification for deadly violence against innocents, even children.
On March 27, in the run-up to the April 1 “Trans Day of Vengeance,” Audrey Hale, a woman who thought she was a man, gunned down six people at the Covenant School in Nashville. A former student at the school, Hale carefully planned the attack for months, with children a primary target.
As her autopsy reveals, nine-year-old Hallie Scruggs, daughter of Covenant Presbyterian pastor Chad Scruggs, sustained an “indeterminate range gunshot wound of the head,” that caused injuries to the scalp, left temporal bone, and left temporal lobe of the brain. An “indeterminate range gunshot wound of the pelvis,” entering at the left lower abdomen, caused injuries to Scruggs’ left femoral artery, vein and soft tissue.
Nine-year old William Joseph Kinney suffered a tangential graze wound “through the scalp, skull, and bilateral cerebral hemispheres,” causing “subgaleal hemorrhage, skull fractures, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and lacerations of the brain.” Hale also shot the male child in the torso and right arm, causing perforation of the ribs and thoracic vertebrae, right lung and soft tissue of the right arm. The child also sustained “spinal cord laceration with associated epidural and subdural hemorrhage, and thoracic vertebral fractures.”
When Covenant headmaster Katherine Koonce confronted the shooter, Hale shot her in the head. The bullet entered through the left side of the scalp and perforated the left temporal lobe of the brain. Another shot to the head perforated the left orbit before passing through the left eye and the base of the skull.
Hale’s shot also perforated the roof of Koonce’s mouth, oropharynx and tongue before exiting the body through the mandible. Koonce also took a shot in the neck and the right side of her torso, causing rib fractures, pulmonary lacerations and soft tissue hemorrhage.
When custodian Mike Hill intervened, Hale shot the African American in the right lateral chest, causing wounds to the lungs and mainstem bronchi, thoracic spine, aorta, and left rib. Hale’s shot perforated Hill’s vertebral body and lung. Like the others, Hill died at the scene, leaving behind seven children and 14 grandchildren.
Over at the White House, Joe Biden failed to identify or condemn the shooter, failed to name a single murder victim, and did not attend any of the funerals. Biden’s press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said “our hearts go out to the trans community as they are under attack right now.”
The Trans Resistance Network proclaimed that Hale “had no other effective way to be seen than to lash out by taking the lives of others.”
September 27 will mark six months since Audrey Hale murdered nine-year-olds Evelyn Dieckhaus, William Kinney, and Hallie Scruggs, and adults Katherine Koonce, Cynthia Peak, and Mike Hill. At this writing, the FBI and police are still withholding Hale’s manifesto. People who acknowledge reality are under attack, and the trans forces grow more militant.
“Transifa,” a combination of transgender and Antifa, denotes a “far-left trans movement spreading across U.S” and “intimidating and physically assaulting those who disagree with them.” Trans swimmer Lia Thomas was recently photographed wearing a black T-shirt reading “Antifa Super Soldier.” Call it violence signaling.
“Trans violent militancy is the current focus of #Antifa,” contends journalist Andy Ngo. “They believe that critics of trans ideology should be silenced, maimed or murdered. Some call for sexual violence against females in particular, as revenge.” A travel advisory would be better suited for places where transifa terror is likely to strike, not places that recognize biological reality. At this point in history, Canada isn’t one of those.
The government of Canada proclaims Tecumseh, Pontiac and Jay Silverheels as members of “the first 2SLGBTQI+ communities.” In the denial of reality and imposition of a totalitarian ideology, that is surely one of the plus brilliants exploits.
