As well as it’s pernicious and toxic bias the BBC is also a key advocate for various forms of radical leftist thinking and one of these is the idea that gender is fluid and with many options. There is not a week that goes by without the BBC pushing one or another form of mental aberration as the new gender progressive. Just take a look at this nonsense from 2016 and that was the EARLY days. Almost three years on the BBC itself was pushing this sort of freak trip;
“Is the way we treat boys and girls the real reason we haven’t achieved equality between men and women? In this bold, engaging and provocative experiment, Doctor Javid Abdelmoneim (pictured) aims to find out whether stripping away the pink and blue will change the way this class of seven year-olds think.”
The BBC is currently out to push the #Metoo agenda as far as possible since that is aimed at undermining men but at a deeper level it is also all about subverting gender identity altogether – and starting in the schoolroom.
Even the Communists didn’t go as far as this. They sought conformity among the masses, but not this.
My view is that it’s the Left trying to out-Left each other in their Leftness. It happens.
Let’s stop it becoming mainstream. Once it starts, it’s difficult to stop.
Why pink for a girl and blue for a boy?
Well, that’s to avoid the proud new parents being offended by the likes of “What is it, a boy or a girl?” “Ahhh, what a beautiful little girl!” (“He’s a boy”) and so on.
So feel free all you deranged radicals, dress your baby how you want but don’t start getting offended when others get their sex wrong.
We live in a time where common sense has become unfashionable . Men are sent to women’s prisons and the authorities think this is okay – then sex offences take place .
Perversions of nature are approved of – the NHS spends taxpayers cash on sex changes , children are sexualised and their innocence taken from them because a few screwed up individuals shout the loudest . Strange times encouraged by the BBC and the MSM.
The danger is that it can take root amongst teachers. The next area at risk is that of the Home Office which is very Left leaning.
Having taken root, it is impossible for any employee to challenge the crazy concept without suffering stigmatisation and/or career damage.
It then becomes self perpetuating.
Dover – I think you have a point there, the ‘radical left’ having achieved near total domination of the media (along with education, social services, healthcare, the Labour party etc… ) are now increasingly competing amongst themselves over who can come up with ever more outrageous nonsense and outrage over nothing.
It’s all a bit surreal, how can you (to quote someone else) ‘fight against reality’? Biology dictates there are males and there are females, and there are a much (much) smaller percentage of tragic individuals who don’t really fit in either gender. Whilst we can feel pity for these ‘freaks of nature’, as a species it’s insane to pander to them at the expense of the healthy majority.
All this drivel from the ‘progressives’ is just that… drivel, you can’t change the laws of nature, however much you might ‘stamp your feet and scream, and scream, and scream’. I wonder just what percentage of the population, as a whole, are carried along with this insanity? My sincere hope is that this crap will be swept away before too long, and replaced with some healthier societal obsessions.
Of course, failing that we could find ourselves sleep walking into a situation where our decadent and declining society is entirely replaced with something more vigorous – say Islam, for example. Honestly, that might be the ‘least worst’ option from my perspective. I can grow a big bushy beard, wear a tea cosy, and make a big fuss about praying four times a day, as well as the next MAN, it’s the women (and girls, gays, transexuals, transgenders, cis-genders etc….) who might not get along so well with our new masters, but that’s their problem, from my point of view I’d certainly have a lot more respect and clout.
“it’s the women (and girls, gays, transexuals, transgenders, cis-genders etc….) who might not get along so well with our new masters”
I think cis-gender might be the normal one.
Err… you might be right there jip, have to admit I had no idea what was meant by the term (or any of the other 264 new ‘genders’, we’ve been presented with).
Personally never going to refer to myself as ‘cis-gender’ though, I’m NORMAL, not ‘cis-gender’, not ‘heteronormative’, not even ‘heterosexual’, just… normal, like 95% of the rest of the population.
I can get my head around homosexuality, and know a few gay people, reckon they must make up something like 5% of the population… with less than 0.01% of ‘others’, really too few to warrant wasting so much time and effort on.
According to the Office for National Statistics the UK is 1.5% Homosexual… of course the BBC therefore has a target of 10% gay employees… to “reflect society”… they never explain which society though, probably the nightmare society they want to create.
I’d say C4’s target is 50% minimum gay, then there’s the fruitcakes on top.
Your point is well taken BigBrother, -find ourselves sleep walking into a situation where our decadent and declining society is entirely replaced with something more vigorous- Islam is the main contender as far as my studies have shown-this society has rashly accepted this Political Ideology of Islam into its folds and will pay a harsh price for doing so. Islam will never intergrate into any society other than one that is built on its medieval concepts. Europe has opened its doors to now approx 75 million Muslims all now in place to cuase maximum disruption wherever and as we are seeing daily. Here the blame lies with an over liberalised political system that has been instrumental in bringing and supporting the Multiculturalism propaganda now so loved by the media et al-this scenarioof course is controlled by the Elites whose aim is to subujgate society into total submission of their policies. We are, some would say between the devil and a hard place.
The only thing to be said in favour of Islam is that it has no doubts about gender – unlike Christianity.
The struggle against discrimination in the workplace based on race, sexual orientation, etc, has largely been won in the West. Decades ago the great comedian Jackie Mason joked about it, saying in the US you can’t fire anyone because they will claim discrimination. The only person you can fire is a straight white male. As soon as he starts the job, you fire him.
What are social justice worriers (spelling deliberate) to do now that their fight has been largely won? Evidently they now look for discrimination where none exists, at the same time claiming more and more bizarre forms of victim hood.
Thus people who deviate from the sexual norm can now claim to be oppressed if society does not bow to their every demand. I believe Canada has made an absurd law, punishable by a fine or even jail, that everyone is obliged to address the above-mentioned deviants (all 17 categories of them) by the pronouns they insist on. The psychologist Jordan Peterson is fighting this with everything he has.
Not only is society increasingly obliged to pander to all deviations from the norm, the norm itself is under threat, with deviants insisting, in effect, that the norm itself be regarded as peculiar.
Jackie Mason put it well when he joked, and I paraphrase, “l’m sorry I became a heterosexual; I don’t know how it happened.”
It’s not totally clear to me how and why the BBC has become so insistent on promoting the LGBT cause, way out of proportion to the actual percentage of the population of this group.
I guess it is partly a result of the BBC’s unwillingness to employ any straight white conservative men or women, thus finding itself radically out of step with the population as a whole. And since the BBC is essentially a bullying, propagandist outfit, it imagines that the solution to its decreasing popularity is to badger the public into conforming to it’s radical views.
They normalised homosexuality, they are normalising transgender issues, they’re trying to normalise veganism and next they will try and normalise paedophilia-they are already turning a blind eye to it.
This is what happens n a god-less society.
The BBC are truly evil.
“next they will try and normalise paedophilia”
They are already dong this, the ECHR recently redefined pedophilia by upholding a conviction on an Austrian lady who called Muhammad a pedophile for marrying a six year old.
The courts “reasoning” was that it wasn’t a pedophile because there was no evidence that the attraction was due to age, rather than the child’s hair or other attribute… and it was incumbent on the accuser to prove the nature of the attraction, evidence of the age was not sufficient.
This redefinition of pedophilia can now be used as a defense for this kind of behavior… welcome to Sharia creep (or rather Sharia stampede).
Yet the BBC support and admire Islam. Where does Islam sit with this? Are Muslims supportive?
The BBC/Left and Islam have totally opposing beliefs as regards divergence from sexual norms and female emancipation.
Good point DS is it ignorance? Do the BBC actually believe their own propaganda-are they so sheltered inside their own little bubble that they actually believe that Islamic and Islamist are separate entities?
Muslims and pc snowflakes both want to destroy western society,.
BBC aint confused, they just sticking to the de-facto truce.
a truce that must eventually break, if either are to gain the true dominance they both desire.
We started to give in to this nonsense when we allowed them to get away with using ‘gender’ as a synonym for ‘sex’.
First we were told it was a ‘polite’ alternative, to diiferentiate between the state of being and ‘the act’. Then it broke away from the biology and became a feeling.
Now if people want to self-delude that is one thing, but when the rest of us, society a whole, have to adopt that same delusion then that is plain wrong.
It annoys me when I see officialdom using ‘gender’ on birth certificates, passports or medical records. A person’s sex is something fixed at birth and is a first-level binary for defining their identity – I might say that I feel I’m a pink unicorn, (my gender), but that can’t be established independently at passport control and it says nothing about my potential role in producing a child or my risks of developing certain medical conditions. The ‘sex’ information is needed by society to establish identities and to predict birth rates and medical needs, ‘unicornism’ tells society nothing, (except perhaps as a pointer to the numbers of unhappy and mentally disturbed people).
I have noticed the adverts on ITV and the competition to embrace the new norms. It is not just how many black people you can force into one advert. Tia Maria starts its advert with a person with one leg walking confidently on their artificial one and somewhere in the mix is a black man beautifully made up as a woman (or at least I think that was what I was seeing; Mr D drew to my attention the car advert of a woman in labour being driven to the hospital by another woman (we assume they are the couple as there is no man around) and today I saw an advert for perfume where an expensive bottle was being given to what I assume was a female by her female partner. I wondered about the proportion of BAME and same sex couples among the general population because I still think by excluding the majority from identifying with the people in the adverts, companies are reducing their reach into their target audience.
Boycott these products.
Trouble with boycotting products, is that there are now so many of them, produced by so many “on-board” companies, we’d be cutting off our noses to spite our faces – we’d end up with nothing.
When the ads come on, I like to play “Where’s the w 0 g”. You’d think mixed race relationships were as common as white/white. You don’t see the third, ethnic minority person as Chinese, South Asian etc. only Afro Caribbean. I have nothing against non-whites, my beef is with the media/Govt’s racial fantasy.
There’s been quite a lot of research on this. The most common inter-racial relationship is White with Asian, yet nearly 90% of depictions show White with Black (usually White woman, Black man). The success rate of such marriages varies enormously; for instance, a White male with Black female partner is actually less likely to end in divorce that White-White or Black-Black. The least successful arrangement? White female and Black male – the one which is promoted all the time by the media. A US survey identified that White females find Black males least attractive candidates of all for mixed-race relationships, yet once again it is constantly pushed in pop videos etc. One can only speculate on the impact of this on young black men when they find they are rejected by the women they are constantly told desire them (hint: look at the US statistics for inter-racial rape).
I worked for a large international company and the ad’s that were made by it’s chosen agency were abysmal, we the sales and marketing staff at ground level knew this but the ad’s kept on coming. What was happening was the agency was promoting it’s self and was out to win qudos at their award ceremony’s, this and a large brown envelope to our top man secured this happening.
“Jeremy Corbyn denies ‘stupid woman’ jibe at Theresa May” proclaims the BBC!!!
The subtext of course being that the use of gendered language is simply unacceptable in the lefts new fantasy vision of the world where boys have periods, and men can give birth to babies.
The BBC, high on it’s latest round of identity quotas, appoint themselves as the language police. The punishment for champagne socialists is to be pasted on the front page and be slandered as as a misogynist, while the deplorables can expect a visit by the police.
The irony is of course, that the left are in fact being sexist in assuming that May is unable to handle such a timid insult, despite the fact she is holding the highest office in the land… although if she really is that pathetic it might explain how the EU pushed her around so easily.
Combine that with the fact that many consider her stupid for the mess she is making of Brexit, and that she self declares as a woman… then surely the insult is an accurate one by anyone with half a brain???
Of course in reality this is just another day pushing the envelope of insanity a little further by the Goebbelesque thought police at the BBC.
Here’s a great song about this called the 12 triggers of Christmas…
And another, great for a laugh!!!
I am currently admiring our media simultaneously trashing the political estate for obsessing about what Jez may or may not have uttered, whilst trotting out conflicting ‘experts’ to prop up ideological biases, with no sense of irony at all.
Meanwhile, here is Newsnight.
Of course, Rob Burley would say that women are being deeply attacked in a balanced way, so all is good. Plus added Brexit, for no reason.
I note she initially said “both from the right and the far left” and then realised she had forgotten the narrative and corrected the “right” to “far right”.
This is complemented nicely by BBC fave Polly who, surprised when a target fires back, is reduced to gabbling inco… even greater gabbling incoherence after accusing JHB of being ‘Far Right’.
However, this is unlikely to affect such a ‘clever’ (BBC quotes) woman’s berth on near every BBC panel show.
In many ways I miss the Newsnight Economics Editor.
You won’t see this on the BBC
The winner of the 2018 Diane Abbot award …
( by the way this is the first time I’ve ever been able to ‘do a link’)
I and my identical twin brother, who is also my identical twin sister are all having growing pains.
All five of us are simultaneously suffering ageing problems.
Octavia, who has bright blue skin, apart from his head, was enduring the menopause recently. She is terrified
of period pains in the future. She is also concerned that he may suffer the same erectile dysfunction in one of her penises that his elder brosister Petunia did.
I have tried convince Petunia that her condition is due to her having been raped by 250,000 Muslims when she was three.
Being gang raped by Muslims is, after all, the sole benefit of Islam.
Flush the BBC and all its staff down the pan.
Not the BBC, but if thinking of cancelling your TVL, think what else you can save…
If I hadn’t just managed to bag a very decent deal on my Sky Package I’d be cancelling becaus of this. In fact when the deal ends I think I’ll switch my phone and broadband supplier and buy a Freesat box just out of principle. Even my 21 year old footballing son (a key Sky demographic I imagine) was “less than complimentary” about the recent rainbow graphic above the on screen score board, the rainbow mics and the dropping of the Prostate Cancer lapel badges in favour of circular rainbow ones. All very forced and not at all organic.
By coincidence I’d paid attention to a few Premier League matches before the whole rainbow nonsense and noticed that the crowds at them are almost all white and predominantly Male. So why the virtue signalling? If someone is good enough then they’re good enough, giving a leg up to BAEMs (I can hardly believe it’s an acronym, but then the first time I heard it was from Lenny Henry) or homosexuals or lesbians is plain wrong. Case in point, I’m happy to listen to and trust the expertise of Martina Navratilova because she transcends all of this ridiculousness.
“The BBC is currently out to push the #Metoo agenda as far as possible since that is aimed at undermining men but at a deeper level it is also all about subverting gender identity altogether – and starting in the schoolroom.”
Agreed David. It also is a devious plot to undermine the Christian Faith of this nation. Why otherwise target primary school children! One wonders what these people get up to behind close doors!? Children on the brain!
Evan Davis interviews a Serena Kennedy deputy Chief police of somewhereshire who is ‘ lead’ for drones .
She droned on about ‘multi agency ‘ and ‘ consulting ‘ and kissing her career farewell for not for seeing some lefties / anarchists screwing up an airport . Clearly done zip .
The presenter Evan Davis asked the killer question “ can you think of any simpler was for someone to screw up the lives of thousands of people’
I waited for the reply – but the top cop couldn’t understand the dumb question . I think she went off consulting again .
Still don’t understand why they’ve not been shot down . No more difficult that clay pigeons .
Fedup – I couldn’t believe this interview: simple questions answered with a string of almost incoherent “answers” – which Departments were doing something, we don’t know what, but after 3 or 4 listings we knew who might be involved in…legislation, was it? Or was it something else?
I’m guessing drone stuff wasn’t important ….up until now . I like to support plod if possible but whoever briefed this police chief on the interview dropped her in it ( as well as herself or course ) .
I suppose criticising wimmin is now a misogeny crime .
Fedup- You’re right. And I would imagine such an instance of criticism /misogeny is now more serious an offence than a little thing like bringing an airport to a halt for a day or two….
So I would say the lady we heard was really very efficient, eloquent and capable.
pink is female budgie
blue is male
it’s just nature and the same with humans having similar preferences
So libtards can stop telling us its taught.
The BiasedBBC (and the rest of the media) live in their own bubbles of reality and are out of touch with plain old common sense enjoyed by most of the rest of the population. It will come back to bite them sooner or later as audiences become increasingly sickened by their behaviour.
What feminists who whine about the ‘gender pay gap’ never mention is the ‘gender spending gap.’ Men earn more money so they can attract a mate by spending it on them. By feminist logic women would hate nothing more than marrying footballers as the massive ‘pay gap’ would feel oppressive. Also so many who shriek the loudest about the ‘pay gap’ marry high-earning men. If Harriette Harman wants to really feel empowered why not marry a road sweeper instead of a member of parliament?
The infinite power women have over men is sexual, which they learn from a relatively young age and exploit ruthlessly. Boy the rings girls used to run round me! I think Samuel Johnson said: “Nature has given women so much power it is wise the law has given her little.” A hot girl can easily go through life without having to work hard or pay for anything and have a very comfortable life.
Another favourite whinge is how few CEOs are women. Well nearly all those male CEOs will have been snapped up by women who get the massive house, five star holidays etc with none of the eighty hour weeks. It is obvious who has the good deal. There is zero evidence that women as a whole would love to be CEOs anyway – it is pushy upper middle class women using the feminist cause to push for their own ideals. Plus they never mention competence! Maybe fewer women run engineeeing companies as on average they lack the requisite skill set? I have worked with so many women who completely fall apart when they get stressed; unquestionably on average women are more neurotic than men, which is not conducive to high stress roles.
What so infuriates me is that men and women work so fantastically well as a team. Feminists want to a war between the sexes but the bedrock of our unfathomable success as a species is the union of men and women: we are literally nothing without it. Lying in bed with my wife talking about our plans and problems – listening, counselling, inspiring – I feel like anything is possible. If I earn more or she earns more it is irrelevant as we are a team and all our money is spent on the family. Love is sovereign yet for the cultural Marxists are driven by spite and resentment.
Deep down many feminists wanted more than anything for a man to protect them and provide for them but it never happened and they are so bitter at being rejected. (Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.) As Jordan Peterson advises you should not criticise the world until you have your own life in perfect order. You can bet the embittered woman who added up all the money men earn and all the money women earn and invented a ‘pay gap’ did not have her life in perfect order. Honestly how absolutely ludicrous thag such a crude calculation (ignoring crucial factors like roleshours worked etc) could ever see the light of day let alone be taken as seriously as holy writ by the Bullshitting Bastards Corporation. How many young girls must have been taught thus to see themselves as victims when in reality men have done everything humanly possible to keep them safe? Build everything (often dying during the process); keep water, electricity and computers working; invent everything that has so enhanced our lives . . .
Rant over. Almost.
Not everything that counts can be counted and not everything that can be counted counts. There is simply nothing more wonderful than having a woman in your home at Christmas making everything perfect. And there is nothing more magical than a little child with their mum. Crude statistics about pay and unequal outcomes could never scratch the surface of what really makes us tick. Childless female CEOs must feel the most terrible void which all that money and power could never fill, and gaze with envy at a poor house wife with a wonderful young family.
