This is all metaphor, no really

Meanwhile, ratcheting continues.

That’s the new Twitter header.

Does anyone else do that? Say something and sign it Dr. Important Person (2019)? I don’t think I’ve seen one like that before. And then using it to frame violent imagery of flames and a brick, muscled arms and threatening scowl, all of it directed at women…this ain’t social justice.

It sounds so familiar…

McKinnon blocked me on Twitter but Google finds the tweet easily.

A relatively unknown cyclist

Hadley Freeman on Rachel McKinnon’s triumphant own goal:

Two weeks ago Martina Navratilova, one of the greatest athletes of all time, leaped into the notoriously feverish gender debate and wrote that self-identified trans women should not have an automatic right to compete in women’s sports because they have unfair advantages from having been born male. The media, terrified of being on the wrong side of history, responded predictably, and headlines said that Navratilova was “criticised over ‘cheating’ trans women comments”, although this criticism came largely from a relatively unknown cyclist, Rachel McKinnon, with a history of incendiary remarks (such as that lesbians such as Navratilova should “get over their genital hang-ups” when it comes to choosing

Self-identification=reality. Simple. In other words, what people say about themselves is true, period, end of story. Simple.

So if someone tells you she’s a beluga whale, she is a beluga whale. Simple.

If someone tells you he’s Denali, he is Denali. Simple.

Words are magic. Simple. Anyone who says otherwise is An Enemy of the People. (What if she says she isn’t An Enemy of the People? That question is against the law.)

Now that we … Read the rest

Rachel McKinnon’s world championship Saturday is raising more eyebrows.

Cycling’s first transgender world champion has fired back at heated criticism surrounding her breakthrough victory at the 2018 UCI Masters track championships.

Canadian philosophy professor at South Carolina’s College of Charleston Dr Rachel McKinnon endured a torrent of online trolling after taking to social media to celebrate her world championship win in the women’s 35-44 sprint final at the Velo Sports Center in Los Angeles earlier this week.

An image of McKinnon standing tall above her competitors during the medal presentation ceremony has spread globally in the wake of her controversial victory — just as she predicted.

So McKinnon’s good at predicting as well as cycling.

But was it predictable … Read the rest
