A TRA Wrecks A Woman's Livelihood
A Woman In Vermont Is Cancelled Because She Doesn't Think Humans Can Change Sex, Fred Sargeant Steps In To Help And Would Like You To Do The Same
Everyone, I’d like you to meet Holly Anagnos.
Early this past month, Holly was unexpectedly laid off from her job and was counting on being a vendor at an upcoming food festival to make ends meet for this month. Four days before the scheduled occasion, the head of the event organization sent her an email telling her that she was being excluded from participating because of her gender critical and political beliefs. The email, citing Holly's protected expression of her beliefs, read in part, "While we believe your food and service of food would have been a great fit, we have discovered that your values and opinions do not align with the mission of (our organization). Because of this, we will not be using you as a vendor at our event."
So, naturally, Fred Sargeant (being the magnificent man he is) wrote an email to the event organizer asking why.
Though he didn’t get a response, the organizer - one Amber Leventry - did reach out to Holly and you, My Lovely Readers, are to make particular note of the pronouns at the beginning and end of the email.
It should be noted that, after having jerked Holly around because the receipt was “blurry”, Amber did reimburse Holly - for all of
$79.05, far short of the money she would have received (enough to cover more than food prep expenses such as rent and bills) had Holly been allowed to be a vendor.
So, right off the bat two assumptions are made clear: that Holly is not only “transphobic” because she doesn’t think that any amount of surgery, hormones or pronouns grants humans the ability to change sex but that Holly is also a racist because she’s skeptical of Critical Race Theory (CRT).
CRT mandates the integration of its concepts across various subjects like English, social studies, science, and mathematics, rather than confining them to a single course. Importantly, these concepts are not introduced as debatable viewpoints open for student discussion and analysis. Instead, they are presented as established truths that students are expected to accept and follow. Failing to do so results not only in being labeled as holding racist beliefs, but also in facing official penalties such as detention, suspension, severe employment jeopardy or mandatory participation in a "restorative justice" struggle session. Furthermore, teachers are obligated to instruct these concepts irrespective of objections, and expressing dissenting opinions contrary to the values of the School Board on personal social media accounts can lead to disciplinary measures.
Holly knows this and is understandably skeptical.
Holly’s skepticism of CRT doesn’t make her a racist, but Amber here is laying it on thick with the struggle session.
Many of CRT’s most prominent academics and adherents impugn the motives of anyone who disagrees with them. They refuse to consider the possibility that critics might have something to add to the discussion, which is why it plays well on places like Twitter.
And precisely because Holly Anagnos is white.
This is an ideology founded on the idea that racism is systemic, that it lives in every interaction, and that it’s perpetuated by almost every member of the dominant race. That makes CRT adherents inherently skeptical of the motives of anyone who disagrees with them.
Or, as the thinking goes, racism is pervasive, systemic, and deeply ingrained therefore all whites are oppressors.
And Amber, a former lesbian, now transgender, whose male child, a twin, told her he was trans shortly after learning to speak, and before he learned how to dress himself has cloaked herself in the language of the “oppressed”, because words are violence…or something.
Something something “she’s a wizard, Harry”.
Fred Sargeant has been so moved as to start a fundraiser for Holly, having raised $6500 of the target goal of $7500. I have donated to this fund, Fred would like all of you - My Lovely Readers - to do the same because, in the words of Benjamin Franklin, we must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.
