Guy Deletes Common Sense

Every time someone apologises for telling the truth, the price of telling the truth rises.

There will come a point soon, if we have not reached it already, where speaking the truth is simply too costly.

And what becomes of a society in which people cannot afford to say what normal people would say, or react to events in the way that normal people would react?

Guy PearceThe issue was highlighted by an Australian actor who today apologised for daring to say that non-trans actors should be able to play the part of trans people.

Pearce famously played the role of a drag queen in the hit movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

He tweeted on Monday…

“A question — if the only people allowed to play trans characters r trans folk, then r we also suggesting the only people trans folk can play r trans characters? Surely that will limit ur career as an actor? Isn’t the point of an actor to be able play anyone outside ur own world?”

The point he made was pretty obvious, one would have thought.

But nothing is allowed to be obvious anymore.

In fact, the more obvious something is, the less permission you have to say it.

The Wokestapo immediately came for Pearce and so, while the tweet was still warm, a cowered Pearce hastily deleted it, along with the discussion thread.

In its place was a grovelling apology from an actor seemingly more concerned about his Hollywoke social credit score than anything else.

Pearce wrote:

“I posted a tweet yesterday that I shouldn’t have, which to prevent upsetting anyone else I have now deleted. A fuller apology and explanation of the point I was raising is attached xx Guy

I’m not sure the apology will be enough though.

Doesn’t Pearce know that having committed a thought crime you need to promise to “do better” and to “seek education from members of the trans community” and to “listen more”?

Mentioning that the trans community are “already marginalised” would be a nice touch.

Also, a large donation to an LGBTQ charity that teaches school children about gender fluidity wouldn’t hurt.

That’s just my PR advice. But we all know how these things go.

Every time someone apologises for being normal, the entire world becomes a little bit more insane.

Reasonable is the new bigoted.

The huge irony in all of this was that Pearce apologised for daring to suggest that actors can pretend to be a person they are not, because he feared offending people who pretend to be people they are not!

It’s at this point that I have started laughing while writing this piece. One of the few consolations of having to live through the end of civilisation is how hilariously funny it all is.

Pearce can’t be a fake trans in a movie for fear of upsetting men who are fake women in female bathrooms.

You know it makes sense once you accept that the entire world has lost its mind.

By deleting common sense Guy Pearce simply proves the point that if you want to get on in an irrational world, you must become irrational yourself.

He is just the latest victim of the authoritarian world of gender, enforced by virtue signalling politicians and corporations hungry to profit from a growing number of disturbed young people.

And every time thoughtful people like Pearce prostrate themselves before the baying identity mob, that mob is emboldened in their unquenchable thirst for affirmation.

The mob don’t disperse after an apology. They just line up their next victim.

If anyone should know what a guy is, it’s a guy called Guy. He has decided sadly, like so many others nowadays, that playing dumb is the smartest move.

    God in His mercy has reached out His hand to mine…..because I extended my hand to Him.
    I pray for the grace to never again fear what (men and women,) can do to me ..
    Let our only fear be separation from His love and His ongoing Re education.
