IDENTITY POLITICS EQUAL UNINTENTIONAL COMEDY
When a child claims to have an imaginary friend, parents often let it run its course while edging them slowly toward adulthood. The justification is they’re only kids, and will outgrow their harmless fantasy. There’s a frightening trend in American society where those same ideals no longer apply to adults. Disregard human biology, basic logic, and rational thought. It’s all about how you feel.
It’s now considered perfectly fine for prepubescent boys to identify as girls, adults to identify as dogs and ponies, marry inanimate objects, and even identify as races they don’t belong to biologically. One year of hormone therapy is enough to allow massive male athletes to compete as women, including in combat sports where the whole point of the competition is to physically destroy your opponent.
In everyday life, watching a grown man beat a woman to a pulp would be appalling, but if he identifies as a woman, then it’s fine for the assault to take place inside of a ring or octagon. Many recognize this madness for what it is, while others are far too concerned about inciting offense to open their mouths and call a spade a spade. Physical reality no longer outweighs delusions of the mentally ill. It’s gone too far, to the point where actual comedy can no longer compete with reality.
Tropic Thunder was a comedy where Robert Downey Junior played an eccentric actor named Kirk Lazarus, and the joke was how far he was willing to go to embody his character. In the movie, he was cast as a black sergeant despite being a white man.
“Lazarus underwent a controversial pigmentation alteration procedure in order to play the platoon’s African American sergeant Lincoln Osiris.” but this was a joke, set in a satirical world of fiction.
Enter Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who “identifies” as a black woman. She made a fool of herself on national television on more than one occasion, and eventually had her name legally changed to Nkechi Amare Diallo. And she’s only the second craziest white woman who identifies as African American.
There is also the case of Martina Big, who was baptized in 2018 and reborn as Malaika Kubwa. Martina Big was born white, with fair skin and blonde hair. Like Lazarus, she received tanning injections to change the color of her skin. But she’s far worse than Kirk Lazarus, because at least he had a major acting role to justify his insanity. In her case, she’s just plain nuts.
That’s all okay, and we should support them. No thanks. I’ll take my reality like I take my whiskey, straight and without a chaser. No bullshit. Go ahead and play pretend, it sure is fun. But don’t for one second think I won’t laugh out loud, and use my freedom of speech to call attention to this emergent world of unintentional comedy. Because in the same way the mentally disturbed can use their freedom to mock human scientific progress and knowledge, I can use mine to double over in laughter at the spectacle’s obvious insanity. This should be considered acceptable because I identify as an asshole. There are so called warriors of social justice, and there are representatives for truth. Choose your side.
