Julian the trans puppet to the rescue to help kids having gender issues…

In today’s episode of stupid crap Canada is doing I’d like to introduce you to Julian the trans puppet.

MONTREAL — The young school-age puppet named Julia feels in her heart she’s a boy and wants to be called Julian.

Trans advocates say for many very young children and their families, tackling such gender-related questions are real and can be complicated.

Enter Julian, the marionette at the heart of three bilingual videos designed to help provide youngsters and their families with the necessary tools to navigate such questions.

Julian (the puppet goes by Julien in French) is the brainchild of the Jasmin Roy Sophie Desmarais Foundation, a Montreal-based organization dedicated to fighting bullying, which unveiled the free video capsules and educational booklets Wednesday.

The videos, which tackle issues like gender identity, self-expression and acceptance, star Julian and his fellow puppet friends Leo and Annie in addition to a human female character named Alex.

The foundation’s Jasmin Roy said the intended audience is very targeted.

“We need to develop emotional and social skills for educators, parents and other children who are around those children exploring their gender or expression,” Roy said.

“Now, every time you have a child in your community who’s dealing with that reality, you’ll have a tool to help you.”

Where can we draw the line?  Where can we say no and not be called a bigot?  Every single time we extend a hand they want to take the entire arm.  Trans acceptance was never going to be enough.  They were always going to infiltrate the schools and get to our children.

This is a real danger.  This puppet is for little children.  Kids are still trying to figure out who the hell they are and what they want well into puberty and beyond.  I thought I was Indiana Jones when I was a kid, but is it really healthy to have the adults play into the fantasy?  There are already instances of parents losing custody of their children for refusing sex-change surgery.  We’re already at that point where the state can control your children without your permission.  Given the regret that can take place, and the crazy high suicide rates of trans people in general, is this really a road we should be going down in our children’s minds?  There are no doubt cases of children with true gender dysphoria.  But that number is astronomically low.  So low that installing trans puppets into schools to teach children about it will do far more harm than good.

We used to have a thing called common sense that would end crap like this in its tracks.  Today, we live too comfortably, and it gives too much time for people to take up causes that are entirely unnecessary and downright dangerous.  More on this in a post coming soon on the perils of Pax Americana.  The more I hear about what children are being subjected to in schools these days, the more tempting home schooling sounds.  It is undeniable your children are being programmed and indoctrinated in our education system.  They have our kids from kindergarten through college to program their minds however they want.

If you want to go further down the rabbit hole of what’s being programmed into our children, check out the video below on the Elsagate controversy or the f’ed up “children” shows they allow on YouTube.  Here’s a blurb from Wikipedia on Elsagate.

Elsagate is a neologism referring to the controversy surrounding supposedly child-friendly videos on YouTube and YouTube Kids which contain themes that are inappropriate for children. Most videos under this classification are notable for presenting content such as violence, sexual situations, fetishes, drugs, alcohol, toilet humor, and dangerous or upsetting situations and activities.[1]

The videos often feature popular characters from family-oriented media, sometimes via crossovers, used without legal permission; the term itself is composed of Elsa (a character from the 2013 Disney animated film Frozen, who is frequently depicted in such videos) and -gate (a suffix for scandals).[1] However, the Elsagate controversy has also included channels such as Toy Freaks that do not feature child/family-friendly characters but real children, and have raised concern about possible child abuse.

Most videos in this category are either live action films or crude digital animations, although a few channels have been using more elaborate techniques such as clay animation.[2] Despite YouTube’s age restriction policies, these videos are sometimes tagged in such a way to circumvent the inbuilt child safety algorithms, even making their way into YouTube Kids, and are thus difficult to moderate due to the large scale of the platform.[3] In order to capture search results and attract attention from users, their titles and descriptions feature names of famous characters, as well as keywords like “education”, “learn colors”, “nursery rhymes”, etc.[4][5] They also include automatically placed ads, making them lucrative to their owners and to YouTube. Despite the objectionable and often confusing nature of these videos, many attract millions of views.[4]

While criticism of the channels themselves has existed since at least 2016, public awareness of the phenomenon grew in 2017, as it became part of a broader controversy about child safety on YouTube. That year, after reports by several media outlets, YouTube adopted stricter guidelines regarding children’s content. In late November, the company started to mass delete channels and videos falling into the Elsagate category, as well as large amounts of other inappropriate videos or user’s comments relating to children.[6]

Fix your posture

Bad posture can be the result of bad habits (texting, for example) or just as readily from a poor mindset.  The kicker is that regardless of where it began, one can propagate the other.

The effects of bad posture run deeper than just poor aesthetics.  It was shown from a study in 2010 that men who stand in a collapsed position for 2 minutes had a decrease in testosterone and increase in cortisol, compared to a “power posture” which had the opposite effect of increased testosterone and decreased cortisol levels (Carney, D. R., Cuddy, A. J., & Yap, A. J. (2010). Power posing brief nonverbal displays affect neuroendocrine levels and risk tolerance. Psychological Science, 21(10), 1363–1368).  This also implies you can have a “fake it til you make it” attitude towards fixing or improving your posture.  Consciously working on fixing it will have the benefits heretofore mentioned.

People look at you differently when you walk tall versus walk hunched over and closed in.  You give off a different aura.  And there really is a positive feedback loop between good posture and confidence.  Mike Cernovich talks about this at length in his fantastic book Gorilla Mindset, using the example of a gorilla for his purpose.  Your mood most certainly changes for the better as you improve your posture, and the way you carry yourself has great importance.

It’s not necessary to know the minutiae of every biological process to benefit from it.  The takeaway is bad posture looks terrible, induces bad biological processes, and projects weakness.  Good posture literally improves your health, on top of looking more aesthetically pleasing and projecting confidence and strength.  Check out the video above for a few short exercises that work your C5-C8 vertebral bodies to improve the poor posture many people are developing from hunching over from texting.

Finland schools to skip parental permission to give HPV vaccine to kids

I’ve written about the HPV vaccine push before in England.  Now this story is coming out in Finland about giving this to kids without the permission of their parents.  Via yle:

Up until now, parents have been asked to give their consent ahead of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccinations administered to girls by school nurses, and many guardians have opted out of allowing their daughters to get the jab. But this is set to change.

Tuija Leino, who heads the National Institute for Health and Welfare THL’s immunisation unit, says permission was sought as parents were not aware that the HPV vaccine had been introduced to the national immunisation programme. But now that people know about it, permission is no longer needed, she explains.

Finland’s National Institute for Health and Welfare says about half of 11-12-year-old girls eligible for the vaccination received it in the past 5 years that it has been available as part of the national immunisation programme.

Whether you agree with getting the vaccine or not it should be worrying that they can do this without any permission whatsoever.  It sets an awfully dangerous precedent and I happen to subscribe to Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s take on this that we over-treat in general where it is not needed, often times doing more harm than good.  The chances of high risk HPV turning into cervical cancer are already very low.  The study they linked to claiming that the vaccine was perfectly safe was curiously a dead link.  Read into that what you will.

This also raises questions about promiscuity in general.  HPV is largely transmitted via sexual activity.  It shouldn’t be too surprising that it’s on the rise as sexual promiscuity rises as well.  Somehow this gets everyone in a knot, similarly to why HIV rates are higher in homosexual men, who on average tend to sleep with way more partners than most heterosexual people.  It’s becoming less popular to lead a conservative lifestyle where you marry someone early on in life.  Apparently abstinence isn’t a an option they’d like to give in Finland.

Something feels inherently wrong with blatantly giving big pharma a contract like this.   A lot of these studies are funded by big pharma themselves, as if we should ever trust their self-policing.  How many movies alone have been made about big studies that are kept under wraps or the numbers are skewed to hide some real underlying risk?  It takes billions of dollars to get a drug to market, is it really a stretch to think they may skew something to get it through?  They may actually have some studies to test side effects, but who knows what the long-term side effects of something like this could be.

Teenage boys in England to be vaccinated for HPV

The vaccine will now be offered to 12-13 year old boys too.  Via The Guardian:

Boys aged 12 and 13 in England are to be vaccinated against the cancer-causing human papilloma virus (HPV), the government has said.

The decision, announced on Tuesday, comes after the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) recommended last week that the HPV vaccination, which protects girls against cervical cancer, should be extended to boys. It followed growing calls for the inoculation programme to be expanded.

HPV has emerged as the leading cause of throat cancers and is linked to 5% of all cancers worldwide, including some that affect only men.

And a bit further down:

Girls are offered the vaccine from the age of 12 or 13, although there is an opportunity to be given the vaccine up to the age of 18. A vaccination programme was recently introduced for men who have sex with other men.

Dr Mary Ramsay, the head of immunisations at Public Health England, said: “Almost all women under 25 have had the HPV vaccine and we’re confident that we will see a similarly high uptake in boys.

I’m not anti-vaccination by any means but I have a hard time with this.  We probably over vaccinate in general, and a lot of the long term consequences are either unknown or deliberately buried.  Is it really worth the unknowns of doing this long term?  I was reminded of a post by Vox Day highlighting an article of how declining birth rates are tied to women who have taken the HPV vaccination.  Given that this has been standard practice in England for girls since 2008-2009 it’ll be interesting to keep an eye on fertility rates there over the next generation to see if they continue to decline.  This could be one of many contributing factors.

There are reasonable and pragmatic vaccinations and ones that are just overkill.  These days people freak out if you show any skepticism of vaccines.  It’s not that black and white.  Yes, some are vitally important and necessary.  Why some people cannot see that some may be overkill and/or more harm than good is beyond me.  For one of the least prevalent and least deadly types of cancer it’s at least worth speculating whether the prevention has worse long term consequences than having done nothing at all.  But hey, we all need to do our part to help out big pharma, amirite?

Take some time off

I recently spent a few days hiking and camping in Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.  Thankfully there was no cell phone service so I was completely in the dark on the politics and hysteria of the day; a mental reset my mind sorely needed.

The fight for our civilization from a big picture point of the view is the most important fight you can involve yourself in.  Sharing articles, memes, videos, waking up friends and colleagues, all of these are an important part in enacting the mind and cultural shift needed to get this country and the West at large back on track.  But it’s hard work, and tiring.  If I involve myself too much every single day without respite I find myself irritable, sometimes dejected, and sometimes paranoid.  There’s a reason soldiers rotate off the front line after a period of time.  Battle fatigue is real, and you don’t maximize performance of a soldier by running them into the ground.

Everybody has their ways of relaxing or changing their mindset.  For me, being outside in nature away from computers and a smartphone is the most effective antidote.  It clears my head, gets me thinking big picture about life in general, and in the case of hiking is a great way to get the blood flowing.  Find you getaway spot or place you can let go mentally for a bit.  Sometimes even just a 15 minute walk can be the reset your mind needs to get back to peak performance.

Africans are causing parasite epidemics in Europe

One of the many disasters that has been caused by the African migration into Europe has been the introduction of parasitic epidemics that were wholly preventable and which further endanger the native population.  Via Independent:

Around 25-30 per cent of humans are currently infected with at least one parasitic worm species.

The diseases they cause can be devastating. Worm infections can lead to diverse and chronic conditions such as scarring of the eyes and blindness, swelling of extremities and immobility, blockage of digestion and malnutrition, anaemia and tiredness. They can also increase an individual’s risk of developing cancer and Aids.

Not so long ago, human diseases caused by parasitic worms were thought to be confined to resource poor communities throughout Africa, Asia and South America. But in this age of global travel and changing climate, parasitic worms are slowly but surely moving into parts of Europe and North America. The long-term consequences of increased parasitic worm distributions are difficult to predict, but the harm that infection causes highlights the need for developing control strategies that can mitigate this 21st-century threat to global health.

Our team of scientists is currently using cutting-edge technologies to combat the single most important parasitic worm disease, schistosomiasis (or bilharzia).

Schistosomiasis – which is caused by infection with blood dwelling schistosome flatworms – currently affects hundreds of millions of people every year, often leading to the deaths of thousands to hundreds of thousands of victims. Its impact is so great that some have claimed it is second only to malaria on the scale of devastating parasitic diseases.

Approximately 85 per cent of all human schistosomasis currently occurs in sub-Saharan Africa, but outbreaks have recently been reported on the Mediterranean island of Corsica. People become infected with the parasites when they come into contact with certain types of freshwater snail that produce human-infective stage schistosomes. These parasitic worms rapidly penetrate the skin and develop into adult male and female schistosomes within the blood vessels surrounding the intestines or bladder of infected individuals.

Hundreds to thousands of eggs are produced daily by each female worm. And, once they become trapped in human organs, these eggs induce chronic complications including inflammation, tissue scarring, fluid imbalances, anaemia and, eventually, death. A proportion of eggs that migrate into the intestines or bladder will be released into the environment when an infected individual defecates or urinates. If these eggs reach fresh water, they can hatch and release snail-infective schistosome stages, which effectively completes the life cycle.

There are a lot of dark reasons behind the migrant crisis in Europe.  The author is clearly off the mark on climate change being the driver for this nonsense, but the end result is undeniable.  One wonders if perhaps there isn’t a pharmaceutical angle to it as well, but who knows.  I guess parasitic epidemics for diseases that weren’t prevalent in Europe is just another sacrifice we have to make for the ultimate strength in diversity we’ve been promised all along.  But hey, who knows, maybe through the magic soil in Europe these people will magically start defecating in designated areas for human waste disposal to slow the spread of these parasites.  One can dream, anyways.

Show restraint with respect to imbibing alcohol

I have a hard time believing this is true, but according to a new study that is out as reported by the Daily Mail drinking four drinks in one session could permanently alter your sleep genes.  From the article:

For the study, the scientists exposed mice to levels of binge drinking seen in humans, using 200 proof ethyl alcohol, diluted to 20 percent in tap water.

In the following four hours, the mice experienced a significant increase in non-rapid eye movement sleep, or a dreamless sleep.

However, during periods when the lab rodents should have been asleep, they were awake.

The animals showed neither an increase in adenosine, a chemical that promotes sleep, nor the urge to sleep.

The team discovered that binge drinking reduced the expression of the gene that controls sleep, known as ENT1.

Gene expression is the process by which the information contained within a gene becomes a useful product, meaning that the gene that controls sleep had become less effective following alcohol consumption.

‘What we have shown is a particular gene – which is very important for sleep regulation – is altered by just one session of binge drinking.’

He said: ‘We were not expecting this. We thought it would be affected after multiple sessions of binge drinking, not one.

‘That tells you that as soon as you consume four drinks, it can alter your genes.’

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, binge drinking is a pattern of drinking that brings a person’s blood alcohol concentration to 0.08 grams percent or above.

Regardless if it’s true for one binge session or not, really anything over 3 drinks in a session is probably not ideal to do on a regular basis, if ever.  My quality sleep suffers with anything over 3.  As men of the West we have to take care of ourselves.  Exercise, diet, and quality sleep are three non-negotiable items if we’re to defend and preserve the West.
