Welcome to the wonderful world of sanity.
Arielle Scarcella, a self-professed lesbian feminist who’s been labeled a “trans-exclusionary radical feminist” (TERF) — which is essentially a slur for feminists who oppose transgender radicalism — announced in a video last week that she’s leaving the so-called “progressive” left over its growing insanity.
“Hi, I’m Arielle, I’m a lesbian and I don’t think gender is a social construct,” the video begins. “I don’t think cis-straight white men are evil. I don’t believe that general preferences are transphobic or that there are 97 genders.”
“I don’t think that male sex offenders belong in women’s prisons. I don’t think it’s normal for people to be praised for walking around with shirts that say, ‘Kill TERFs.’ I don’t think like these people, and I no longer want to be associated with them. I’ve reached peak LGBT, and this is my coming out video.”
Scarcella is among a growing army of otherwise left-wing feminists and lesbians who’ve grown exasperated by the radical left’s attempts to erase women’s hard-earned rights.
They’re particularly concerned about a loud subset of the LGBT community that’s been trying to argue that biological men who purport to be transgender women have the “right” to compete in women’s sports and be incarcerated in women’s prisons.
But this subset isn’t just arguing for these non-existent “rights.” It’s also demonizing anyone who opposes these “rights.”
“Never in my life have I been more canceled, tortured, tormented, harassed than by members of my own community. … Never have I seen such disrespect from younger LGBT people to the older lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender advocates who have been paving the way for us for longer than we’ve all been alive,” Scarcella explained.
“Never have I seen that use the word ‘bigot’ so frequently and not see the hypocrisy and irony in themselves saying it.”
Even the video seen above was enough to provoke an untold number of far-left activists into rushing onto Twitter so they could accuse her of being part of the “alt-right” and disparage her as a “bigot,” “grifter,” “transphobe” and “TERF.”
Please. You’ve been alt-right for years.

She is cherry picking the worst examples from a community as an excuse to be a bigot. It’s classic conditioning for her own gain. I wish older queers would just admit the community was changing.

How does it feel to be like three years behind Laci Green on the inevitable grift train?

“Some of you have noticed this change coming onto my channel within the past few years as I’ve gotten what some people would say more conservative. And yeah, I have, haven’t I?” Scarcella then admitted.
“Since the queer movement right now is obsessed with all these different labels, and I am a fan of labels, I wanted to share a new label of mine with you. I’m coming out. I’m officially leaving the left.”
She then cited a litany of examples that highlight the left’s insanity:
♦ “We have rules and a pecking order of who’s able to speak and how long, even about their own bodies and experiences.”
Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass “We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice.” It is ALL about race..what if a WHITE congressman said the same thing about whites? https://t.co/TaLpvdrkiY

♦ “[W]e have children drag queens and, we think it’s OK for them to perform sexually for adults.”
The mother of ‘Desmond is Amazing’ – a 12-year-old ‘drag queen kid,’ has defended her decision to allow her son to perform on stage at a gay club in New York while patrons tossed money at the boy.
“I don’t understand what the controversy is,” she said.https://t.co/KPP4WIxwCA

♦ “[W]e praise news stories like this that make absolutely no sense and do nothing for our movement or for people understanding us.”
UK 2019: ‘Transgender man gives birth to non-binary partner’s baby with female sperm donor.’ I’m not even going to try to understand this codswallop. https://t.co/T6MdHjVssf

♦ “[T]his person is praised by LGBT organizations and deemed as a speaker for lesbians.”
Then they will get rid of the concept of gender and sex entirely and all the consequences will follow.
The rabbit hole goes deep and children are being harmed chemically, many detransition later when they realise they were just gay or lesbian.https://t.co/7KFkFra2aF

♦ “[P]eople say that straight black men are the white men of black people.”

“I no longer wish to be a part of this,” Scarcella continued.
And she’s not alone. Not by a long shot.
As the left grows more and more irrational, it’s only driving more and more people away, including Karlyn Borysenko, a former life-long Democrat who announced last week that she’s chosen to #WalkAway from all the insanity.
Since I have so many new followers, I wanted to take a quick moment to introduce myself so you know what you’re getting into. Most of you know me as the (now former) Democrat who wrote about going to a Trump rally in New Hampshire: https://t.co/NxY2PIQmxW #WalkAway

As for Scarcella, it’s not clear whether she’s ready to #WalkAway from all leftism. From the sounds of it, she’s just pulling back from the more “woke” parts of the left.
However, at the rate she’s going, she might be a full-fledged conservative before you even know it. Watch her being interviewed by renowned podcast host Tim Pool below:
