New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 18 What is a woman? That’s the question of the year, it seems, and we’re all aghast. The thing is, almost nobody understands what that particularly nasty bit of confusion is about. Luckily, the most high-profile case of the problem, which occurred in the Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Kentanji Brown Jackson, gave us the answer. She said she didn’t know what a woman is (while being a woman) because she’s not a biologist. In other words, to know what a woman is, you have to ask a qualified expert. It doesn’t matter what the definition is because …

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 17 Woke Marxists talk endlessly about the need to “destigmatize” this, “normalize” that, “affirm” this other thing, and “celebrate” whatever they say is best. They want you to think that these things are all the same, though, and any one who doesn’t take the slider all the way from “destigmatize” to “celebrate” on any of their causes cĂ©lèbre is somehow a conservative (or a bigot or a “Nazi”). In fact, these gradations are necessary to a healthy society, and their boundaries must be understood and maintained. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks …

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 16 Thanks to Drag Queen Story Hour, groomer schools, and all other things sex, gender, and sexuality pushed by today’s out-of-control Woke Marxist Left, Queer Theory has been pushed front and center in the public consciousness, but what is it? Simply put, Queer Theory is Queer Marxism, which is a Marxist Theory about a form of sociocultural “property” called “normalcy,” “normality,” or “normativity,” that it believes to have been unjustly created and in need of destruction and total abolition. As such, it’s incredibly dangerous and destructive, particularly on the formative and impressionable psychologies of children, whom it …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 86 Queer Theory has no bottom. No matter how bad you think it is, it’s worse. No matter how bad you think it is now, it will get worse later. In that spirit, we at the New Discourses Podcast present to you yet another “academic” paper rooted in Queer Theory: “Cripping Incest Discourse(s).” You probably didn’t think it was an act of latent genocide to be against incestuous sexual relationships, but according to “Crip Theory,” which is the fusion of Queer Theory and Critical Disability Studies, you’d be wrong. You see, incest …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 82 Before the last year or so, two terms you wouldn’t have expected to encounter together are “drag queen” and “early childhood education,” but we’re now about three years into a full-fledged Communist revolution in the Western world, which has made it not only commonplace but shoved all in our faces. Here we are in the midst of June, “Pride Month,” 2022, and the Leftist collision of drag queens and young children has been center-stage all month long, including in schools. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the idea of using drag queens, or specifically a …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 81 Thinking Sex Series, Part 3 of 3 In the previous two episodes of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay reads through the first two thirds of Gayle Rubin’s shocking 1984 essay, “Thinking Sex,” widely regarded as the first essay in Queer Theory. In it, as Rubin’s subtitle indicates, “Notes for a Radical Theory of the Politics of Sexuality,” she takes feminism (especially sex-negative radical feminism) to task for being insufficiently radical as a politics of sexuality. In fact, she accuses it (not entirely wrongly) of being resoundingly conservative with regard to sex …

Before getting to this section of the …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 79 Thinking Sex Series, Part 1 of 3 People have very rapidly realized, whether in Groomer Schools, marketing, or so many other corners of society that we’ve been suckered into supporting Queer Theory under the banner of a gay and lesbian civil rights movement. We’ve also figured out very quickly that Queer Theory is a branch of Identity Marxism: Queer Marxism, which takes “normalcy” as its special form of bourgeois property to abolish through (Queer) class struggle. Where, though, did Queer Theory come from? It is relatively widely accepted that the first …

Here’s a quick public service announcement for policymakers about a simple manipulation everyone keeps falling for: the concept of “historically marginalized” groups. Whether using the phrasing “historically marginalized” or “traditionally marginalized” groups, this little manipulation enables a grab of power and resources in a truly tricky way, and it’s “feel good” phrasing that appears in policy everywhere today. What’s the trick? Join James Lindsay for a few minutes in this episode of New Discourses Bullets to find out. Spoiler alert, if you’re in a hurry: It’s that no matter what happens after a policy bearing these terms is enacted, the group …

Anywhere in North America, chances are our kids go to Paulo Freire’s schools. Who is Paulo Freire? Paulo Freire is a Brazilian Marxist and Liberation Theologian who remade literacy education according to his ideological programs and thereby ruined it. His ideas were imported to North America in the 1980s and have been steadily colonizing education ever since. Now, his work has been so influential on the “Critical Pedagogy” (or, “Critical Education Theory”) movement that virtually all teachers are trained in his ideas and implement them in classrooms across the nation. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks down …
