OP that Twitter account linked is a right wing parody account like Libs of Tik Tok.

Let us bow our heads in prayer for Sister Aretha. Lord God Almighty, in Jesus name we pray.

I refuse to believe that this is a real advocacy group. It HAS to be parody. I wish someone in Norway would do an investigation.

The feminist 'philosopher' Luce Irigaray is another who gets whole-chapter treatment from Sokal and Bricmont. In a passage reminiscent of a notorious feminist description of Newton's Principia (a "rape manual"), Irigaray argues that E=mc2 is a "sexed equation". Why? Because "it privileges the speed of light over other speeds that are vitally necessary to us" (my emphasis of what I am rapidly coming to learn is an 'in' word). Just as typical of this school of thought is Irigaray's thesis on fluid mechanics. Fluids, you see, have been unfairly neglected. "Masculine physics" privileges rigid, solid things. Her American expositor Katherine Hayles made the mistake of re-expressing Irigaray's thoughts in (comparatively) clear language. For once, we get a reasonably unobstructed look at the emperor and, yes, he has no clothes:

The privileging of solid over fluid mechanics, and indeed the inability of science to deal with turbulent flow at all, she attributes to the association of fluidity with femininity. Whereas men have sex organs that protrude and become rigid, women have openings that leak menstrual blood and vaginal fluids... From this perspective it is no wonder that science has not been able to arrive at a successful model for turbulence. The problem of turbulent flow cannot be solved because the conceptions of fluids (and of women) have been formulated so as necessarily to leave unarticulated remainders.

You do not have to be a physicist to smell out the daffy absurdity of this kind of argument (the tone of it has become all too familiar), but it helps to have Sokal and Bricmont on hand to tell us the real reason why turbulent flow is a hard problem: the Navier-Stokes equations are difficult to solve.

OP, whatever performative outrage you were hoping for with this, it was a huge fail (as are most of your OPs).

You have only one subject that interests you and you're stupid. You didn't even pause for the few seconds it would have taken to see that this account was a parody and no one is after the Queen of Soul. You just grab a story as fast as you fat little fingers can manage and rush to post it here on the Datalounge, hoping that the other ugly old hags will jump on it and join you in performative faux outrage.

Find something useful to do, this isn't it, snowflakes.

My favorite part:

[quote]The song "Lady Marmalade" by Patti LaBelle assumes that only cisgender women can be sex workers.

First, I don't see how the song assumes any such thing. Second, at least they're acknowledging that the Ts are sex workers.

I listened to "I'm every woman" the other day and wondered when they would come for it. Funny that they are just so angry about women and their mention.

Parody or not, wouldn't transgender people objecting to this song make no sense what so ever to begin with?

What would be the alternative? "You Make Me Feel Kinda Like A Woman!"...

STOP FALLING FOR RIGHTWING TROLLS YOU FUCKING MORONS

The Twitter account quoted is an ANTI-TRANS ACCOUNT that pretends to be trans for "satire."

The OP linked to some bullshit fake news website.

The earth is warming up, people are struggling to earn enough to feed themselves and their families, Russia is pushing for war, the eco system is collapsing, corruption is wide spread and this is what some people worry about? They'll be the first to die when society collapses.

by Anonymousreply 39January 24, 2023 12:22 AM

Do you guys understand?

THIS DID NOT HAPPEN.

There is no trans group demanding the song be removed from streaming services!

There is an anti-trans Twitter account that pretended to be a trans group from Norway who demanded the removal, but they admitted they were "satire."

The OP linked to a fake news website to try to fool you into thinking this really happened, and sadly it worked.

by Anonymousreply 40January 24, 2023 12:24 AM

And don't ANY of you motherfuckers start in with the "well, the trans basically do things like this anyway" and then continue to pretend like this is real.

What gets me is that even if the Twitter account was real, it was just some small, nobody Twitter account "from Norway" whose tweet was posted by a fake news site.

Even if it was real, it would still be a big pile of nothing.

The tendency of Dataloungers to take something some nobody tweeted that got maybe 150 likes total and turn it into an example of the end of the world is just baffling to me. I don't understand it. I guess these are the same people who sniff and say "I don't use social media" because they clearly do not understand ANYTHING about social media.

☝️ This. They'll insist gay men are being pressured to date transmen and submit to performing cunnilingus based on a random tweet from some nobody with 200 followers. It's insanity. In the real world you'll find no one saying this except some fringe types and some click-baity bullshit no one takes seriously.
