Feminist under attack for stating the obvious

It was bound to happen, and that it happened in Norway is symptomatic of the direction this world has been taking in recent decades: a Norwegian feminist faces prison for telling her Twitter audience that men can’t be women and that this holds true for the transgender variety, as well.

That, if Norway’s politically charged justice system prevails, can land her behind bars for three years. Making statements about such basic issues of biology equals hate crime.

Questioning “gender identity” has become a crime in Norway in 2021. Women’s organisations had warned that criminalising statements about biological facts like these would lead to persecuting women. To no avail.

The first tweet that annoyed the face of Norway’s militant transvestites who calls himself Christine Marie Jentoft read: “Why [does] FRI teach young people that males can be lesbians? Isn’t that conversion therapy?”

FRI is an organisation of Norwegian transvestites who claim that anyone questioning their gender-assignation wishes is a bloody criminal. Mr. or Ms. (your pick) Jentoft happens to be its senior official.

Norwegian feminist Christina Ellingsen sent this message out in October 2021.

The second tweet angered Jentoft even more: “Jentoft, who is male and an advisor in FRI, presents himself as a lesbian – that’s how bonkers the organisation which supposedly works to protect young lesbians’ interests is. How does it help young lesbians when males claim to be lesbian, too?”

Ellingsen had enough courage to tell Jentoft to his face (and on national television): “You are a man. You cannot be a mother. To normalise the idea that men can be mothers is a defined form of discrimination against women.”

As a result, Amnesty International Norway told Ellingsen she was harassing that poor guy (or girl, your pick again) Jentoft by sharing with him the undisputable fact that he was male.

The Norwegian police report accusing Ellingsen was filed by Jentoft himself, which goes to show the sheer independence of the country’s cops.

Long before this scandal, in 2018, Jentoft had garnered public interest by inviting children to contact him for hugs.

Here it is, in its verbatim beauty: “Dear queer children of all ages! I know some of us have parents who don’t love us any more. But thanks to a [Facebook] video I have just seen, I just want to inform you that I am actually a certified mother. So if you ever need a real motherly hug, I will be happy to oblige!”

Matter of policy

Sexual paraphilias and fetishes should not be defined as part of mental health diagnoses. Neither in Norway, nor anywhere else. That has been the FRI’s goal since 1997. They prevailed at home in 2010, and within the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 2018.

The 11th edition of the International Classification of Diseases now describes sadomasochism, transvestic fetishism, and general fetishism as variants in sexual arousal.

For your enlightenment: A paraphilia is a condition in which a person’s sexual arousal and gratification depend on fantasizing about and engaging in sexual behaviour that is atypical and extreme. A paraphilia is considered a disorder when it causes distress or threatens to harm someone else. It used to be called sexual perversion and sexual deviation.

As the WDI (Women Declaration International) stated, “A woman is an adult human female. It is physically impossible to change sex. Gender identity refers to a person’s subjective convictions, and to persecute women for refusing to accept subjective convictions they do not agree to, is a human rights violation.”

Except, this is Norway

Norway, a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system has a government best described as top-down. As Ms. Ellingsen put it, “Women are not protected against hate speech in Norway, but men who claim to be both lesbian and a woman, are protected both on the grounds of gender identity and on the grounds of sexual orientation.”

Norway is the country that gave the world Anders Behring Breivik. This is the man who, in July of 2011, set up a bomb in Oslo and, later, attacked a youth summer camp. All told, he killed 77 people and injured many more.

Was he crazy?

Not to Breivik. In his own mind, it was the Norwegian authorities who were to blame. Breivik charged, with considerable justification, too, that Norway was not only going extremely easy on Palestinian terrorists, letting many of them into the country, it was also active in training future terrorists and arming them.

He had been approaching all kinds of government offices in protest, getting all kinds of brush offs along the way. And the brush offs were getting more and more curt. That’s when Breivik decided to do something about it all by himself. The summer camp that he attacked had gathered all kinds of teenagers keen on getting trained in all kinds of terrorist attacks on the innocent and unsuspecting Israeli civilians.

Never mind their individual or collective reasons, theoretically speaking, these teens were in a state of war, and war was what they got from Breivik.

Was he right? Was he wrong? You be the judge.

Norway has given the world many more controversial personalities. Such as the chair-whatever of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). Also known as the ‘Earth Summit’, it was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 3-14 June 1992.

Then-Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland was that chair-whatever. Also a vice-president of the Socialist International, she made sure no dissenting voices were allowed into the hallowed rooms or heard in connection with the conference.

The Rio outcome would lead to the so-called Kyoto Conference with its infamous quotas on environmental damage, to be sold and otherwise bartered between those deemed more guilty than others.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Ms. Brundtland had also served as Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO; 1998-2003).

Here’s the curious part: both feminism and all those gender-based movements paint themselves as progressive, left-wing groups that have only better future for the entire humanity on their minds.

Having stolen the word “progressive” for their own agendas, they are now fighting for the noble title of “the most progressive of them all.”

It would be funny, if it wasn’t so tragic.
