Liberal Writer Wonders if She is a ‘Conservative’ for Disagreeing With the Left on Explicit LGBT Book

“I can’t name the sex act in question without playing an elaborate game of charades to avoid running afoul of the Globe’s editorial standards”

Kat Rosenfield is a liberal, but she is noticing the trend among leftists to be with them or against them on issues like this. Not to say that this never happens on the right, but the left is particularly vicious in this way.

Rosenfield writes at the Boston Globe:

If I disagree with my liberal tribe, does that make me a conservative?

The graphic novel “Gender Queer,” a memoir of sexual and gender identity written and illustrated by Maia Kobabe, has been described as the “most banned book in the country.” A flashpoint in the current culture war over the content of school libraries and curricula, it is at once celebrated and despised. Liberal commentators describe it as groundbreaking and essential, a work of art that helps struggling young people to feel seen; conservatives denounce it as pornographic and demand its removal from children’s spaces.

Almost all the objections to “Gender Queer” center on a single page that appears about two-thirds of the way through the book. If you’ve followed this controversy online, you’ve probably seen the illustration in question. If you’ve only heard about it via cable or traditional news, then you probably haven’t — at least not without a censor’s blur in front. This is because the scene depicts a moment in which the protagonist and a partner experiment with a strap-on dildo.

As illustrated acts of kink go, the one in “Gender Queer” is unmistakable, but not especially sexy. You can see far more titillating and explicit works in the collection of 15th-century Japanese erotic woodcuts at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Still, though: It’s racy. Enough so that the page can’t be shown on TV, not even in the late-night hours when the Federal Communications Commission’s obscenity regulations are relaxed; enough so that I can’t name the sex act in question without playing an elaborate game of charades to avoid running afoul of the Globe’s editorial standards. (Hint: It rhymes with “whoa, bob.”) And while reasonable people can disagree on whether the scene qualifies as pornography per se, the fact that this is a debatable point at all is revealing in its own right. Once you’re haggling over whether an illustrated sex act is dictionary-definition pornographic, surely you’ve already ceded the point of whether it’s appropriate for children.

Ms. Rosenfield might be waking up.

But I doubt it.

“It’s easier to fool a person than it is to convince a person that they’ve been fooled.” —Mark Twain

    Lololol How many layers upon layers of denial would this poor soul have to sort through ……….. just to emerge with a reasonably clear-eyed perspective lololol

    Previously, this poor woman made the choices required in order to work atBoston Globe lolol lololol Ad if that was a constructive use of her time

    Plus she had to have met with, and interacted with, coworkers and supervisors at Boston Globe lolololol

    And then lolololol CONTINUED TO WORK THERE!!!! Lolololol

    Bless her heart

    Regardless what her future brings


It means you have a conscience.
Which is something the Progressive religion explicitly tries to destroy (hence grooming the children).

Liberals enjoy pointing at those who disagree with them while screeching “you’re in a cult” — such as the last scene of the Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

But, if one is truly liberal, meaning open minded and tolerant, what does it mean to be in a “tribe” where one is not allowed to question and one’s inner voice is suppressed. That includes activities like shunning, control, fear, coercion, identity manipulation and sex, sex, sex?

She’s probably a mile away from conservativism. The extremists have worked overtime to convince their own party that the center is just slightly left of the crazy left.

Add the human child vivisection wing to the abortion enthusiasts, and you have the Democrat socialist party’s war on children.

Add that to the transgender war on women, and wrap it with “male toxicity,” and you have the leftist plan to destabilize and depopulate the U.S.

Nice bunch.
