Canada's Coming For Your Children | The Weekly Rundown

In this Weekly Rundown, we start things off with the recent attacks in Iran.

Although apologists like to push the narrative that Islamic terrorism is caused by Western imperialism and interventionism, in my opinion, the sectarian divides that exist within Islam illustrate how strong the religious and ideological drives are of many jihadis. If they're just mad at the West, why are the vast majority of their victims non-Western?
Next, we also discuss Ontario's new Bill 89 which seeks to protect children's gender identity and expression. Canadians tend to be extremely apathetic when it comes to politics and their rights, but I hope this bill, which gives the government the right to take away your child if you don't recognize their gender identity, is enough to wake people up.
And as an aside, I think it's interesting that YouTube has demonetized this video. In case anyone isn't aware yet, anything on YouTube that mentioned Islam that isn't CNN or the Young Turks gets demonetized. Fun stuff.

I have an idea on this bill 89. Alberta has been attacked and demolished by Canadian politics for their Conservative beliefs. California wants to leave the United States. Perhaps we could trade California for Alberta. Just a thought.

This makes me not want to have kids anymore. I live in Toronto and I don't want these rules to apply to us. I don't know what the hell I should do anymore.

@RoamingMillennial Thanks

I understand the difference, but I stil hesitate. Though dressing a child as the opposite gender is wrong and harmful, many things that parents do to their children may cause damage. The term abuse should be used carefully.

(p.s. "Natal gender" is much better than "cisgender" - a real word that fits reality)

(p.p.s This site is so annoying, took me ages to post this comment. It doesn't Maven at all)

Can you give us some insight as to why Canada has gotten this way culturally?

@Asaf The NYT and some other outlets did somewhat cover the Iran attack, but all too many ignored it entirely or breezed over its details and its implications for the region and ISIS. Overall I chose the story as a representation of foreign terror attacks, which definitely do not get the press coverage given to even inconsequential things like typos in tweets. It's hard to assume motive, but when people are leaving out evidence that is readily available yet directly contradicts their argument, I think we have grounds to be suspicious.

In terms of abuse, it's recognized that gender identity issues can have serious psychological consequences for children. So if everyone is forced to dress like their natal gender, I think it's clear that the only children that might have problems are those already experiencing dysphoria. Around 99% of kids would be fine. However, if we were to force a child that didn't have identity issues to dress as the opposite gender, that in and of itself might actually be the cause of psychological issues that wouldn't be there otherwise.

Hi Roaming, excellent video, a fine mixture of hysteria and humor :)

About Iran - The msm did cover the story, why do you say they neglect to cover it?

Also - It's a bit of a streach to conclude anything from something that was not said.

About bill 89 - liked your SJW impersonation, it was like, totally, you know...

Maybe the conservatives can find a way to get recognized as an oppressed minority?

Silly question: Why is it right for parents to force their child to dress and behave according to the real gender, but forcing the child to dress and behave as the opposite gender may be child abuse?
(I agree that the latter may be abuse, but not sure I can explain the difference)
