“CRIMESTOP means the faculty of stopping short, as though by instinct, at the threshold of any dangerous thought. It includes the power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments if they are inimical to Ingsoc, and of being bored or repelled by any train of thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction.”

“How necessary it was, to free human beings from their instincts, to format and reprogram their minds so that they could overcome all their natural instincts.” – George Orwell, 1984

CRIMESTOP is not a legit thing.

I’m not required to train my brain to think:

  • Men are women
  • Straight men are lesbian women
  • The oppressor class is the oppressed class
  • Choosing not to convert children into the opposite sex is conversion therapy
  • Cutting off one’s body parts is true acceptance of oneself

The act of disbelieving these claims does not make one a bigot or an abuser. It does not call for brain reprogramming. It does not call for the invention of new words for “heretics” designed to scare people into compliance.

It isn’t even unusual.




    • Assimilation is not a danger for me. But sometimes I start feeling a little pissed off at the libfems out there calling for all this CRIMESTOP.

      And yet, I don’t see straight libfems rushing off to date transmen, funny thing that. It’s almost like they don’t believe what they preach.
