For 500 points … who is the Queer Theorist that has spoken out strongly against paedophilia?

Who is no one?

Why is this important? The moral basis of Gender Ideology and transsexualism is ‘to relieve psychological suffering’. The intellectual basis of Gender Ideology lies in Queer Theory. A theory arising out of Post Modernism, that questions material reality. Queer Theory deconstructs reality, identifies binary power relationships and aims to “queer” or violate “normativity”.

Hetersexuality is “normal” as in, 90-95% of people are heterosexual. So homosexuality “queers” the normal. Male/female is a binary power relationship. Redefine the female so it can absorb the male and therefore “queer” the binary.

Can you see the resemblance to Gender Ideology?

Can you see the resemblance to Gender-Ideologue Andrea Long-Chu’s 2020 assertion that “barest essentials of “femaleness” as “an open mouth, an expectant asshole, blank, blank eyes”. A pronouncement only a male could make.

Jeopardy

When his lecture about climate change is interrupted by some Queer Theory-wielding activists, Derek Jensen decides to engage them a game of Jeopardy about their heroes.

Against a cacophony of jeers, coughing and insults, Jensen walks through quotes from Focault, Gayle Rubin, Pat Califa and Judith Butler. Casually calling up their words on his laptop he easily conjures their thoughts on violating children.

Judith Butler is the most mild, suggesting that yes, some incest becomes traumatic only because of the social shame it produces:

So I keep adding this qualification: ‘when incest is a violation,’ suggesting that I think that there may be occasions in which it is not. Why would I talk that way? Well, I do think that there are probably forms of incest that are not necessarily traumatic or which gain their traumatic character by virtue of the consciousness of social shame that they produce.

Judith Butler, quoted by Derek Jensen

Watch the clips

The left is the clip where we play Queer Theory Jeopardy. The right is the full talk about economy, rape culture and environmental conservation. Both are hard to watch because of the jeering and abuse, but they are rewarding. An essential transcript is available here on Ovarit.

FULL TALK – Derrick Jensen talk in Eugene, OR – March 4, 2018

Some background in this interview here

Jensen gives a bit of background about what lead to the above in this interview with Graham Linehan. He says that when organising a conference for Deep Green Resistance, they refused to allow a male to sleep in the female dorms. They offered him separate accommodations, but these were refused. Instead a bunch of angry activists turned up to disrupt the conference.

It’s nice to hear from an interesting pair of people (Derek and Lierre) without them being jeered at bu children.
