The Goku Disease

Today's dose of leftist insanity had the added bonus of forever marring what were once warm memories from my childhood. At the University of Tennesee, per Tribune Media Wire, the Director of the University of Tennessee’s Pride Center (because in modern America, we promote the deadliest of the seven deadly sins) Donna Braquet has said the following:

“We should not assume someone’s gender by their appearance, nor by what is listed on a roster or in student information systems, Transgender people and people who do not identify within the gender binary may use a different name than their legal name and pronouns of their gender identity, rather than the pronouns of the sex they were assigned at birth.”
In the manga, and associated anime series Dragonball, the protagonist, Son Goku is a young boy who, after a serious head injury, was raised out in the wilderness by an old man, until his tragic and mysterious death. An ongoing joke in the series is that the 12 year old, severely concussed, feral child, middle-of-the-boonies hick Son Goku (never really noticed quite how cruel that was until now, oh well) was unable to determine the sex of any given individual on sight, but rather had to get in close and stare at their genital area.

While Son Goku has gotten better in the thirty years since Dragonball's original debut (he learns telepathy!), we have gotten worse.  Whereas Son Goku's adventure saw him dropped into a new world beyond his experiences, where he nobly strove to understand his new circumstances (with oftentimes humorous results) we have sought to repel the knowledge that we already have, intentionally ignoring the truth. What everyone's eyes can tell them in a millisecond is now considered an occasion for deep inquiry and navel-gazing.

Unfortunately, this sickness is nothing new. From around the time of Christ, men believed that the world was mutable to their will, that a secret knowledge, derived only from access to a hidden elite, was the true basis of reality. These men were called Gnostics, from their supposed hidden gnosis, and they were an inveterate enemy of the nascent Church. But they, wiser than we, stood up for Truth, and drove the Gnostics into hiding.

Truth must be fought for in every generation, and this is our battle to wage. Today, the eternal scourge of Gnosticism has reared its ugly head once more. Wicked men deny the fundamental nature of man, and call this wisdom. All this is done in the name of a tolerance that poisons the minds of those who accept it.

In a world he didn't understand, Son Goku didn't give up, facing numerous threats and trials, to not only take a place in his new world, but to become its savior many times over. We, who have the distinct advantage of knowing the truth, have no excuse not to do the same. Start screaming.
