New Speak Dictionary - The Erasure of Women and Girls

The process will still be continuing long after you and I are dead. Every year fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller.  . . .  Has it ever occurred to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?” -― George Orwell, 1984

Principles of Newspeak

The primary aim of newspeak is to eliminate thought via the eliminating words or, if that could not be achieved stripping words of almost all meaning:

1984 Appendix - THE PRINCIPLES OF NEWSPEAK

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of Ingsoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible. ... This was done partly by the invention of new words, but chiefly by eliminating undesirable words and by stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meanings, and so far as possible of all secondary meanings whatever. ... Quite apart from the suppression of definitely heretical words, reduction of vocabulary was regarded as an end in itself, and no word that could be dispensed with was allowed to survive. Newspeak was designed not to extend but to diminish the range of thought, and this purpose was indirectly assisted by cutting the choice of words down to a minimum.

Identity Politics Turf War


gen·der i·den·ti·ty
noun
  1. a person's perception of having a particular gender, which may or may not correspond with their birth sex.

    "he said that young children should be able to explore their gender identities"

i·den·ti·ty pol·i·tics
noun
  1. a tendency for people of a particular religion, race, social background, etc., to form exclusive political alliances, moving away from traditional broad-based party politics.

One sure way to trigger a Democrat is to threaten their government mandated accommodation. In this episode of Tucker Carlson,  Kara Dansky, a self identified radical feminist and board member of the Womens Liberation Front is so triggered about the Gender Identity threat to women's accommodations that she is willing to align herself with Conservative Christians:


Reductio ad absurdum

It seems like logic eventually does make an appearance on the Left and when they are threatened by their own side:


Reductio ad absurdum

In logic, reductio ad absurdum (Latin for "reduction to absurdity"; or argumentum ad absurdum, "argument to absurdity") is a form of argument which attempts either to disprove a statement by showing it inevitably leads to a ridiculous, absurd, or impractical conclusion,

Beyond Bathrooms

In the video, Kara makes it clear that her issue is not the bathrooms, it is the female entitlements from the Federal Government that she is worried about. If, under Gender Identity, anyone can identify as a female regardless of biology, these entitlements could be threatened.

In Kara's case, she is worried about the threat to Title IX:

erasure of women and girls

Kara makes the case that gender identity creates a form of newspeak where terms like women and girl are divorced from their original biological meaning and, without that grounding, they are virtually stripped of meaning.

Protections not Government Mandates

Kara also gets into the newspeak business on her end by referring to government mandates as protections. When Kara says she is for protecting women she is referring to supporting government mandates like Title IX not protecting women from potentially being molested by men in the ladies room.

The newspeak term for government imposed laws and regulations is protections.

Degradation of Language

Kara also correctly points out that newspeak also now prevents females from referring to their bodily parts or biological processes like pregnancy since female no longer depends on biology.

Hate Redefined

Kara also points out that acknowledging biology defined as hate.

In newspeak, hate performed by pointing out false premises.

Bigot Redefined

big·ot
ˈbiɡət/
noun
  1. a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.

    "don't let a few small-minded bigots destroy the good image of the city"

    synonyms:chauvinistpartisansectarianMore

Kara finds it interesting that the word bigot is being used against her. She claims to be tolerant and open to other views.

She does not think it applies to her. She simply questions gender identity and would like it demonstrated to have any validity in terms of science.

Bigot has become a newspeak term for anyone that questions the lefts false narratives.

Coercion

Asking questions about gender identity.
Standing up for women and girls.
earned Kara:

online hate
threats
being labeled trans-phobic bigots
threatened with rape and death
