Elizabeth Warren bows out with a dose of cisgender-normative prejudice

From NPR:

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren ended her bid for the presidency on Thursday, acknowledging her place as the last major female candidate in the race “and all those little girls who are gonna have to wait four more years.”

Absent cisgender-normative prejudice and the heretical assumption that gender is not fluid, how does she know that the U.S. won’t have a president who identifies as a “woman” starting next week? Did God call up Elizabeth Warren and tell her that Donald Trump will never experience gender dysphoria?


  • “Elizabeth Warren: ‘Girls will have to wait for woman president'” (BBC)
  • “Transcript: Elizabeth Warren Speaks After Suspending Campaign” (WBUR): in response to people saying that she was too angry to appeal to voters, Elizabeth Warren uses the word “fight” three times in the first two paragraphs. “I say this with a deep sense of gratitude for every single person who got in this fight, every single person who tried on a new idea. … I guarantee I will stay in the fight for the hardworking folks across this country who’ve gotten the short end of the stick over and over. That’s been the fight of my life and it will continue to be so.”
  • “If Elizabeth Warren doesn’t become president… will the New York Times blame voters’ prejudice against women or voters’ prejudice against Native Americans?” (post from January 3, 2019)

  1. Paying close attention to her breathless antics I think she is a bit of an actress. Her acting ability or her far left cred maybe why the media is repeating her lament for the little girls crying in the corner for their futures but why no such love for Amy Klobuchar who just exited the race a couple of days earlier?

  2. I liked Liz because she really was a pain to the banks after 2009. Almost the only public figure to go after Jamie Dimon and friends. No idea why she chose “shrill” as her campaign message.

  3. “fight…fight…fight”

    Leftism, being the quasi-religious creed of losers and all other gammas (and lower), panders to their desire to raise their self-esteem by casting their loserdom as intentional sacrifice in the eternal struggle between Good (themselves) and Evil (their betters). (Historically, Leftism is just a further corruption of anabaptism ditching God and replacing it with Science – which has nothing to do with the actual scientific method – complete with hierarchy of priests and acolytes in lab coats). What leftists say is “you’re a loser not because you’re a loser and need to get off your butt and improve yourself but because your enemies keep you down”. Hence the “you didn’t build it yourself” slur thrown at people who actually managed to get something impressive done. It also gives license to losers to style themselves as heroic figures (“fighters”) which has clear appeal to infantile minds. Unfortunately, losers styling themselves as fighters, provided impunity, tend to turn homicidal as history amply demonstrates. (They also tend to have subconscious understanding of this, and having only themselves to base their mental model of humanity on, are thus strongly opposed to allowing people to own weapons. More than one leftist privately admitted to me that they’re afraid of what they themselves would do with a gun if they were guaranteed to suffer no consequences to themselves.)

    This pandering was well-understood and widely lampooned by Soviet citizenry; one popular and colorful saying goes “У верблюда два горба потому что жизнь – борьба” (The camel has two humps because all life is a fight – unfortunately it doesn’t rhyme in English).
