Why people mix personal with political

Post by RedBrasil on Mon Mar 04, 2013 8:01 pm

I was reading RevLeft, so I found this http://www.revleft.com/vb/would-you-date-t170332/index.html

Lots of people in the Left as whole think it's wrong not wanting to have sex with a trans just because she/he is a transexual, how dumb is that?
I'm for total lgbt rights, but being conservative with my dick should not be a concern for people

Just like claiming one is racist just because the person prefers having sex with women from a particular ethnic group ? I'm a multi-racial guy, but I don't see why having a preference is bad, I usually don't feel atracted sexually by extremely white women, but some of the nicest persons I have in my life are very white

What are your thoughts about these topics?

It is extremely dumb. Unfortunately, Revleft represents the insignificant subculture that the contemporary "Left" has become. They prefer to bicker over marginal cultural issues which alienate the vast majority of the working class. Since I oppose social engineering of any sort, I maintain that cultural evolution should proceed organically, without infringing upon personal preferences where there is no basis for public intervention. Of course, if a small sect of "leftist" activists wish to advocate on behalf of fringe cultural movements that more or less reflect their own personal tastes than any true claim to social justice, they should be perfectly free to do so, but they shall likely remain a minority.

P.S. You do not need to create a separate post for corrections. There is an "edit" button near the title of each of your posts that you can utilize for revisions.

This is probably what drove me to stop posting on RevLeft. They certainly knew how to annoy me with their political correctness and closed-mindedness. It's actually hilarious looking at how thick some of the members on that website are.

The International RevLeft Organisation's official objectives:

1. Liberate gays to the point of 79% of families on TV and in advertisements having same-sex parents.
2. Employ an equal number of black, white and brown people in every industry.
3. Destroy culture and make funerals better because Marx said so.
4. Have the Socialist Phalanx banned as a hate group.

This is simply a reflection of the pernicious effect the New Left has had on socialism over the past several decades. Identity politics have largely replaced the centrality of the class struggle for most leftist sects, and the result has been a gradual withdrawal of working class participation in socialist and communist organizations.

What's most ironic is that many of the individuals who propound such nonsense are actually vulgar economic reductionists who believe that concepts such as the family and even sexual identity are ultimately reducible to the forces and relations of production. However, by accepting such a premise, one would have to conclude that merging fringe identity politics with radical movements would be a losing proposition anyway, since the masses aren't going to abandon these social constructs until there's a revolutionary transformation in the organization of production.

My view is that the erosion of capitalism and the implementation of socialism will solve our economic problems, but the "sexual revolution" and destruction of family relations are symptoms of capitalist decay and communists should give order and dignity to family and sexual relations. Lenin spoke against "free love" and sexual degeneracy to Clara Zetkin on the Women 's Question.

Though I too respect the rights of LGBT citizens in public life, Marxism is a humanist philosophy and Juche is a man-centered philosophy that regards the monogamous family as the basic unity of society which has evolved historically as the greatest approach for equality between the sexes and social harmony.

Kim Jong-Il said in a speech delivered to the Central Committee of the WPK:

"The family in our society is the basic unit of life. A sound and happy family life helps to make social life as a whole cheerful and animated."

and

"Observing morality in love between men and women is of great importance in ensuring sound family and social lives. The relations between the sexes should be developed on the basis of true love and become comradely relations in which the two people respect each other's personal dignity, trust each other and help each other sincerely."

Old Kim wasn't far if the mark on the old family issue.
