‘Philosophy Tube’ goes full trans supremacist
This weekend, YouTube personality Oliver Thorn announced that he has become Abigail Thorn over the last year.
On Twitter, Thorn claimed that “Things are very, very bad for trans people in the UK and they’re getting worse,” by which Thorn means to whine that the demands of the trans lobby are not being met in full. There have been no changes in UK laws about ‘gender identity.’
In fact, that is the very ‘problem’ Thorn decries. In UK politics, “no party has equal rights as a policy goal” — which is true if you’re a man whose idea of “equal rights” is actually just destroying the sex-based rights of women through appropriation.
That kind of DARVO reversal occurs throughout the statement. Asking men questions before giving them powerful cross-sex hormones is “discrimination,” if not literal murder. Trans people are dying in droves as a cruel government does nothing.
These talking points show up constantly in trans activism, but of course they are never backed by evidence. Thorn, who is not a medical doctor, falsely claims that puberty blockade is reversible in teenagers. No peer-reviewed research has ever established this.
The raging narcissism of autogynephilia is apparent in Thorn’s idea of feminism as “a common struggle to be free” rather than the struggle to make women free. Women are allowed nothing for themselves, not even their own struggle. Thorn’s “feminism” is designed to validate men.
Thorn also released a coming out video in which Oliver disappears and then ‘Abigail’ steps through a door onto the set. Fellow YouTube star King Critical watched the whole thing and found it hilarious, noting that the “explanation” doesn’t actually explain anything. This is long, but absolutely worth watching:
