Quote:A visiting scholar at the University of Arizona claimed he identifies as a hippopotamus in a recently published article in an academic journal.

Writing in the Journal of Theoretical Humanities, University of Arizona visiting scholar Florentin Félix Morin argued that his hippo alter-ego has allowed him to navigate the world free from the constraints that “govern human bodies.”

This article explores the formation of a tranimal, hippopotamus alter-ego. Confronting transgender with transpecies, the author claims that his hippopotamus “identity” allowed him to (verbally) escape, all at once, several sets of categorization that govern human bodies (“gender,” “sexuality,” age). He starts with an account of how his metaphorical hippo-self is collectively produced and performed, distinguishing the subjective, the intersubjective and the social. The article then investigates the politics of equating transgender and transpecies, critically examining the question of the inclusion of “xenogenders” in the trans political movement.

But when you think about it,
the normalization of mental disease
would be the natural next step,
wouldn't it. Very predictable.

The heck...why does it seem like all
higher education, everywhere in
the West, follows old Bolshevik
dialectics..? 13.gif

It's not just the normalization of mental illness that is a problem. They are also demonizing anyone that does not share their illnesses .

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Out of curiosity I googled that journal, and let's just say some of the articles there are tremendously disturbing. These people make Marshal Applewhite look tame by comparison.

Quote:This article focuses on the analysis of the geo-politics and body-politics of being, and perception as the key concepts in the decolonial option grounded in the spatiality and corporeality of our cognitive and perceptive mechanisms. Revived spatiality refers in this case not only to a physical space that we inhabit but also to our bodies as specific spatial entities – the privileged white male bodies or the damned, non-white, dehumanized and often gendered and sexualized bodies from the underside of modernity.
