Dogs in the Park – ‘We are grateful for your contribution to Gender, Place and Culture’ (Special Edition)

River Dixon’s recent poem about his Dog’s Balls reminded me of this event. This is ‘old-hat’ news, but I really enjoyed viewing this video about these three academics who are in retrospect heroes of modern times because they industriously learnt and exposed the radical possession of the ‘Left’ in the Universities and mainstream media. This could be the most significant act of courage in modern times.

In 2017, Lindsay and Boghossian published a hoax paper titled “The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct“.  In writing the paper, Lindsay and Boghossian intended to imitate the style of “poststructuralist discursive gender theory“. The paper argued that the penis should be seen “not as an anatomical organ but as a social construct isomorphic to performative toxic masculinity“. They later submitted it to Cogent Social Sciences where it was accepted for publication.

I live in a rich suburb of Colombia’s capital, Bogota and the people who live here don’t have kids because they know the cost to have kids (as I once read) is on average 250,000 US dollars and kids (humans in total) aren’t environmentally cool or leftist friendly. So, when I walk about; I see people picking up ‘shit’ from their dog and then I smell ‘dog piss’ at every post or corner. I wrote here about a man I saw using his ‘scooter’ to get around, because that’s a hip leftist ‘pro environmentalist’ thing to do.

During the Pandemic when the statistics were coming out about which comorbidities were causing the greatest suffering, the Press didn’t allude to any of that, because it might have been construed as offensive (fat-shaming) to those considered most vulnerable by the radicals. So, obesity and lacking Vitamin D didn’t raise a mention. Joe Rogan, Brett Weinstein and Dr. John Campbell in their popular podcasts also couldn’t understand how it wasn’t raised or encouraged by the mainstream media.

A little bit before Jordan Peterson came onto the scene in 2017 with his objection to being subjected to saying obligatory transexual pronouns… thank God; courageous people have leapt forward like these academics who exposed how ludicrous are the ideological leftists in their thinking to appear ‘good and righteous’. I remember watching Peterson those many-moons ago and disagreeing with him because I was a progressive-leftist. Then I realised he was actually talking about ‘me’, and I had studied all that in my 20’s in my Political Systems degree including the ‘Bolshevik Revolution‘.

You only have to listen to Peterson and Sam Harris go at it in their 1st debate – ‘What is True‘ and then listen to it a few more times to ascertain who was right (according to my meagre knowledge). I still believe this is the most significant intellectual debate post -2000 despite how frustrated the participants and listeners were in recollection of it.

“The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know.”- Michel Legrand
