"In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it."
(Moonbattery) - In a soft tyranny, you probably won’t lose your life for neglecting to pretend that 2 + 2 = 5. But you may lose your job:
A teacher has been suspended and could face the sack after he ‘accidentally’ called a transgender pupil a ‘girl’ in class when the student identifies as a boy.Joshua Sutcliffe, 27, who teaches maths at a state secondary school in Oxfordshire, said ‘Well done girls’ to the teenager and a friend when he spotted them working hard.He apologised when corrected by the pupil, but six weeks later he was suspended from teaching after the pupil’s mother lodged a complaint.
Apologies don’t suffice when you have committed a serious thought crime like accidently referring to a girl as a girl even though her mother wants everyone to pretend she is a boy.
Following an investigation, he has been summoned to a formal disciplinary hearing this week to face misconduct charges for ‘misgendering’.
Sutcliffe stands further accused of referring to the student by name rather than denigrating the concept of objective reality by using masculine pronouns to refer to a girl. This is the key to the entire transgender jihad. It is not enough to stay quiet; you must actively reject sanity and pledge allegiance to moonbattery by using biologically incorrect pronouns. It is the liberal equivalent of forcing you to recite the shahada.
Once they get you to refer to Bruce Jenner or Bradley Manning as “she,” they own you. You have averred that 2 + 2 = 5 if the authorities say so, and have surrendered the right to object to any other tyrannical lunacy they may see fit to impose.Read More . . . .
