I’ve said before that the left in the twenty first century seems to have a curious form of autism, in which groups are essential, and people who belong to groups are interchangeable widgets.
Not only that, but they have the duty of being interchangeable widgets. How else do you explain the left calling someone a race or gender “traitor” for not thinking exactly the thoughts the left assigned them?
This is a great part of their mind reading schtick. If you oppose them, they know that you wish for the exact opposite of what they claim to want, and therefore you must for sure want the opposite.
So, say you say something like “Sure, we should encourage girls, but we can encourage boys too.” Because — being binary — by “encourage girls” they mean “promote female supremacy” they KNOW that you want to promote male supremacy.
Keep pushing, leftists.
The backlash from this is going to be epic.
And you’ll never see it coming.

The Binary Mind of the Left
This is a least partially consistent with my claim the political left has all the characteristics of an individual with a personality disorder. In this case it’s the parts about them thinking they can read your mind and “black-and-white” thinking (“binary mind” in Hoyt’s post). That is common in Borderline Personality Disorder. Some of these other characteristics are a good match too:
- Markedly disturbed sense of identity
- Frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment and extreme reactions to such
- Splitting (“black-and-white” thinking)
- Impulsivity and impulsive or dangerous behaviours
- Intense or uncontrollable emotional reactions that often seem disproportionate to the event or situation
- Unstable and chaotic interpersonal relationships
- Self-damaging behavior
- Distorted self-image
- Frequently accompanied by depression, anxiety, anger, substance abuse, or rage
Here are some of the ones that really jump out at me:
People with BPD often engage in idealization and devaluation of others, alternating between high positive regard for people and great disappointment in them.
They “throw people under the bus” at the first hint of “betrayal”.
People with BPD act impulsively because it gives them the feeling of immediate relief from their emotional pain.
People with BPD tend to have trouble seeing a clear picture of their identity. In particular, they tend to have difficulty knowing what they value, believe, prefer, and enjoy.
Principles? They have no clue what your are talking about.
BPD is related to lower functioning and disability…
