Gender Confusion is Not a Disease; Whiteness Is

 5/27/21 Journal of the American Psychoanalytical Association:

Whiteness is a condition one first acquires and then one has—a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which “white” people have a particular susceptibility. The condition is foundational, generating characteristic ways of being in one’s body, in one’s mind, and in one’s world. Parasitic Whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites particularly target nonwhite peoples. Once established, these appetites are nearly impossible to eliminate. Effective treatment consists of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions. Such interventions can reasonably aim only to reshape Whiteness’s infiltrated appetites—to reduce their intensity, redistribute their aims, and occasionally turn those aims toward the work of reparation. When remembered and represented, the ravages wreaked by the chronic condition can function either as warning (“never again”) or as temptation (“great again”). Memorialization alone, therefore, is no guarantee against regression. There is not yet a permanent cure.

Those keywords make me think projection.

  1. So I can self-identify as a female and change and shower with sensitive but nubile high school girls. What If I also identify as a black lesbian who is wheelchair bound? I should be hireable in any corporation in America, and be immune to termination for being too pale, having the wrong plumbing, and having hair that is too straight.
