Even Stalin would have been revolted

Even Stalin, who had no great objections to falsifying history—to put it mildly—would not have thought of retrospectively changing the sex of a child on its birth certificate. But doing so is now standard practice in many Western jurisdictions, where truth and reality must yield to individual wishes or desires, the demand that one can be anything one likes.

The hydra is genderqueer

if genderqueerism spreads, one can only hope for the future of the human race that the biotechnologists find a way of turning Man into a kind of hydra, the simple coelenterate that reproduces not sexually, but by budding.

Being genderqueer, he says,

is a bit like being a European according to the projectors of the European Project: that is to say one identifies not as German or French or Portuguese, but as European.

Feminists, writes Dalrymple,

ought to be ferociously opposed to ladies and gentlemen, with its connotation of bogus and condescending gallantry directed towards women by putting them first. They should be fighting for gentlemen and ladies (if the word ladies is permissible at all), for at least such a formulation would reveal plain and undisguised the oppressive and selfish nature of patriarchy.

The change from the impersonal he to the impersonal she in politically correct texts — i.e. most academic work — is, of course,

not spontaneous but ideologically driven. There is alternation between the two impersonal pronouns which could not have come about except by conscious effort.

We have entered, Dalrymple points out, the realm of Newspeak. The next step in the Orwellian struggle

would be to bring sanctions to bear on countries with languages whose nouns have gender. In French, for example, prostitution is feminine. Is this not a gross insult to women worldwide?
