A lot of discourse about identity occurs within a psychological framework where social acceptance is withdrawn or withheld until a display of submission or fealty is offered.

It's disconcerting for socialised people to witness because it's animalistic.
The only difference between this and your avg. nature documentary is it's completely psychological.

However, for all intents and purposes the girl apologising has just lowered her head and dropped to her knees.

For anyone who understandably lacks the inclination to consume insanity: a lesbian is being told it's transphobic to be a lesbian.
Slave morality is infinitely regressive. You may think activating or exploiting your opponent's guilt response is the key to political success, but there's always a bigger victim waiting in the wings to activate your guilt response.

Sadly, this philosophy is in the West's DNA.
Feminists don't seem to understand they pioneered the slave morality blueprint that paved the way for trans activism.

Despite seeing this blueprint utilised by trans activists to undermine everything they believe in, feminists still insist on utilising it against men.

An increasing trend in progressive circles is to speak about validating or affirming your child's decisions.

However, no one ever provides a *reason* why this is a good idea.

Is an emotionally validated or affirmed child a functional member of society?
What's missing in all of this is that meaning can't exist without boundaries.

The progressive objective is to attack and destroy every boundary that obstructs their political objectives, including the boundary between adulthood and childhood.
I liken this to living life in pursuit of temporary highs rather than long-term fulfilment.

If the destruction of boundaries is "meaning", what happens to meaning when there's no boundaries?

What's a person's purpose in a sexless, borderless and ageless society?

This is the problem with using your hive mind to form conclusions.

Firstly, in the state of nature, most men would *want* to live in a society as most men wouldn't fare well in the state of nature. They'd live (very) short and miserable lives. Image
That's what a natural hierarchy is—the strong dominate the weak.

All values are arbitrated by death (the only effective form of arbitration), and like every hierarchy there's limited space at the top and infinite space at the bottom.
Secondly, and most importantly, just because a man is weak doesn't mean he's devoid of a strong man's nature.

With a strong man's capabilities, the weak man would behave exactly as the strong man does (ie, he'd rule the weak).

Cultural change is routinely laundered through sexual value.

I've come to believe this is partly because there's no situation in which a woman will admit her intent is to solicit sexual attention or validation from the masses.
"My top is extremely low, my nipples are showing and my make up is perfect, but I'm not aware of any of that, and you shouldn't be either".

"Now, listen to my cultural message..."

Must we? 🙄

I made the mistake of listening to a BBC radio 4 show about the nation-state.

To paraphrase: "the nation-state exists in our imaginations; it wouldn't have happened without capitalism/the printing press".

Why do they never apply these arguments to their own positions?
Apparently, under a nation-state, we form imaginary connections to fellow citizens we'll never meet, but how is this different to proponents of homosexual rights forming imaginary connection to other homosexuals they'll never meet under the banner "LGBTQ"?
Even their technological determinism is selective; apparently, technology/capitalism determined the nation-state, but why do they never consider the idea it determined feminism, LGBTQ activism, trans activism, etc.?

Progressivism derives meaning from breaking the opposition's meaning-making structures (religion, marriage, etc.).

The reason the right can't escape this loop is because it remains loyal to its broken structures when it needs to be hostile towards the opposition's.
I understand the conservative mentality seeks to defend, but a defensive mindset is useless in the face of intellectualism.

When deployed against society intellectualism has one purpose: destroy boundaries.
Unlike a physical enemy, intellectualism's arsenal is infinite. If one weapon doesn't work, it will pick up another. If that doesn't work, it will turn you into the weapon (eg, collective guilt).

Some of my favourite quotes:

"Utopia is not under the slightest obligation to produce results: its sole function is to allow its devotees to condemn what exists in the name of what does not".

—Jean-Francois Revel
"No one is more dangerous than he who imagines himself pure in heart: for his purity, by definition, is unassailable".

—James Baldwin
"It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep...but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience".

—C. S. Lewis
