When gay-as-hell rapper Lil Nas X announced the upcoming release of his debut album by saying he was pregnant with it — and posed for pictures with a fake baby bump — he no doubt knew it would cause some less enlightened folks to blow a gasket.
But I’m not sure anyone could have imagined just how blown out some of these gaskets would be. Consider the post TheBlaze.com’s Jason Whitlock wrote in response to Lil Nas X’s photoshoot with People magazine. Whitlock’s post is a masterpiece of incoherent spew that somehow manages to suggest that the rapper is a secret cultural agent for the Chinese Communist Party working to sissify the United States.
“On Thursday,” Whitlock noted,
China’s lawmakers announced a ban on television programming with incorrect political positions, including shows featuring effeminate men. The Chinese Communist Party is pushing back against the feminization of men. Meanwhile, here in America, we’re celebrating it.
Well I should hope so!
Whitlock’s example of this allegedly terrible trend: Lil Nas X’s faux pregnancy photoshoot “to promote the fallacy that he’s having a baby.”
The fallacy? Do you not know what words mean?
Whitlock continues, explaining that we can’t just treat Lil Nas’ wry publicity stunt as a wry publicity stunt. No, it has a much more sinister aim: it’s part of an attempt to turn America’s boy children gay.
Lil Nas is important because he has the support of our cultural puppet masters. There’s a reason People Magazine supported his pregnancy photos. Lil Nas is bait for the minds of young people. He’s a tool being used to feminize little boys.
I’m pretty sure Lil Nas is his own puppetmaster.
Old Town Road made him an icon among grade-schoolers. Now that he’s an influencer, he’s putting out music to influence young boys in the LGBTQ direction.
The “LGBTQ direction?” Just say “gay,” dude; he’s not trying to lure young boys into lesbianism.
Every other month, he executes an attention-grabbing stunt connected to a sexual taboo. When he’s not giving the devil a lap dance, he’s twerking naked in a prison shower or posed in a white satin dress with a huge baby bump.
Sounds like someone’s being triggered.
Just a few years ago, we were (perhaps falsely) led to believe that 3% to 4% of Americans were gay. Now, when you turn on the television or open a social media app, society is presented as a narrative centered around alternative sexual identities.
You’d think that if this were so pervasive Whitlock would have a zillion examples to provide as proof. Nope; he’s got nothing but Lil Nas.
Transgenders make up 1% of society and 50% of our conversations about society. This is by design and manipulation.
That’s because transphobes are trying to take away trans folks’ basic rights.
Whitlock brings the topic back around to China:
If China is attempting to build a more masculine society, what kind of society would it love for its chief rival to adopt?
Maybe one riven by cultural conflicts that guys like you specialize in creating?
Oh, you were hoping I’d say “feminine.”
America is ruled by toxic femininity. The pleasing of emotions and feelings is our highest priority. We take so seriously the protection of feelings and emotions that thought crimes are judged more harshly than actual crimes.
Says the guy who’s harshly judging Lil Nas X for a cheeky publicity stunt.
After a brief detour discussing the Jan 6 insurrectionists — sorry, good sensible people — Whitlock declares that “[s]upport of Trump offends the sensibilities of feminized Americans.” Which I suppose is true; men are Trump’s biggest supporters.
“Man can never fully please a woman,” he then declares, like someone who’s just been reminded that it’s his turn to empty the dishwasher.
It’s not in her nature to feel fulfilled. There’s always more, something better. I’m sorry if that offends. It’s my belief.
You’re not sorry it offends. You’re trying deliberately to offend.
It’s my belief that we’re building a society that makes laws and rules based on feelings, fleeting, flighty, and filthy emotion. Emotions and feelings drive the behavior of weak people. Modern culture says men are weak when they don’t express their emotions. The truth is men are weak when they don’t control and tame their emotions. So are societies.
Take a look at this video of the Proud Boys beating up people on the streets of new York. Do these glorious paragons of toxic masculinity look like they know how to control their emotions?
Whitlock then turns once again to trans people, dismissing their gender dysphoria as little more than “confusion” on their part. He then seems to suggest that trans people should not be allowed to transition.
I do not doubt that [dead name] Jenner felt like a woman trapped in a man’s body. I don’t doubt it for one second. We can’t make laws based on people’s feelings, though. Feelings change. A fair society presents challenges for all of us. Should airlines be forced to change the size of their seats because I feel uncomfortable in a standard coach seat?
Did he just jump from trans rights to … airplane seats? (And why shouldn’t airlines install slightly bigger seats if their passengers find the current seats uncomfortable?)
There are consequences for our untamed feelings and desires. I feel like eating McDonald’s five times a day. There’s a price for that.
A burst stomach?
There’s a price America will pay for its emasculation of men. China is taking steps to collect that debt. Lil Nas X is just another maxed-out credit card in the Mold War.
The “Mold War,” in Whitlock’s befuddled brain, seems to mean the war to “mold” citizens, which apparently China is winning because it’s banned “effeminate” men from television. I’m not sure why Whitlock thinks the “Mold War” is a clever joke. Then again, with all his unsupported arguments and leaps from topic to topic, he seems a bit addled.
Lil Nas isn’t trying to “mold” anyone. He’s breaking the mold. And it’s damn refreshing.
