On the Epithets of the Cultural Left

Posted on the 26 February 2015 by Calvinthedog

I utterly hate PC types because of how they have treated me over the years. They have called me every name in the book: Nazi, KKK, White Supremacist, bigot, racist, hater, sexist, homophobe, Islamophobe, etc. They often top it off with modifiers such as “vicious racist, extreme racist, wildly racist, very racist,” etc. The truth is that I am not any of these things.

First, some definitions:

Racism or bigotry means hatred of some particular race or group of people.

Sexism means hatred of the opposite sex.

Homophobia means hatred of homosexuals.

Transphobia means hatred of transsexuals.

I do not see myself as particularly racist at all. I have negative opinions of a few ethnic groups for good reason, but I harbor no animus or hatred towards entire races of people.

I am supposed to be a vicious anti-Black racist, but two of my all-time heroes are Malcolm X and Martin Luther King.

The antiracist movement, despite its extreme flaws, is one of the Great Human Emancipation Movements.

I certainly don’t hate women, in fact, in spite of their nuttiness, I like them much better than my own gender. I have always supported equity feminism (equal rights for women), and I am a strong supporter or reproductive rights. In fact, at one point, I was actually a member of the National Organization for Women (NOW). I have major issues with radical feminism or gender feminism, but that is not the same things as equity feminism. The movement for women’s equality or equity feminism is one of the Great Human Emancipation Movements.

I am a strong supporter of gay rights and I am actually on the mailing list of some of their organizations. I support most of their political causes so far. I am not particularly wild about gay men because I have had too many bad experiences with them, but I do like a few of them and I have one gay friend at the moment. Despite my personal feelings, I wish all truly biologically gay men the best and hope they have as happy and healthy a life as I do. I feel that gay rights, along with antiracism and women’s rights, is also one of the Great Human Emancipation Movements.

I am said to be a transphobe, and it is true that I find such folks extremely strange. I am sorry, but it simply does not seem normal at all to me. Nevertheless, I support equal rights for transsexuals at least in the sense that anti-discrimination laws ought to apply to them too.

I have always opposed Nazism, extreme racism, especially extreme White racism, White nationalism, White supremacism, the KKK, skinheads  and related organizations and movements, fascism, male supremacism, misogyny, most forms of reaction, extreme homophobia, gay bashing, and extreme machismo.

Nevertheless, because I discuss race realism and believe in it to some limited extent, I get bashed endlessly as a “virulent racist.” Not only is this untrue, but it is painful and it makes me angry, which I suppose is why they call me that in the first place.
