Tucker Carlson: The latest case of mass hysteria – the belief men can get pregnant

“According to J. F. Hecker’s 1844 book, The Epidemics of the Middle Ages, citing an unnamed medical textbook, a nun who lived in a French convent during an unspecified time in the Middle Ages inexplicably began to meow like a cat, shortly leading the other nuns in the convent to meow as well. Eventually, all of the nuns in the convent would meow together for a certain period, leaving the surrounding community astonished. This did not stop until the police threatened to whip the nuns.”

Transcript: Nobody reads books anymore. All of us get all of our history from Wikipedia. It’s convenient. The problem is, Wikipedia is so politicized and dishonest, that on a lot of topics, certainly anything related to partisan politics, it’s no longer worth reading. There’s too much lying. On the other hand, it’s a big site, and there are some gems remaining on Wikipedia.

If you have a minute this weekend, take a look at the Wikipedia entry on mass hysteria through the ages, before the authorities inevitably delete it, as they certainly will. As you read it, ask yourself if any of it sounds familiar to you. There are witch trials, of course, many of them over many centuries, as well as plagues of spontaneous dancing, mass ghosts sightings, fits of laughing, trembling and babbling that seized entire towns at once for no apparent reason. It’s all there. And then there are the more esoteric outbreaks of mass hysteria. There’s a medieval French nun who, quote, “inexplicably began to meow like a cat, leading the other nuns in the convent to meow as well. Eventually, all of the nuns in the convent began meowing together, leaving the surrounding community astonished. This did not stop until the police threatened to whip the nuns.”

“There is no rational conversation about anything currently underway in the United States.”


It’s hilarious, as you read it. Though at the time, the nuns didn’t see the humor. They sincerely thought they were cats. Hysteria is like that. When large groups of people start acting totally crazy, the reference points disappear. It all seems normal, no matter how nuts it is. With that feature of human nature in mind, think about these statements from yesterday’s hearing before the House Oversight Committee. The topic was legal abortion — but because this is 2021, and we’re all convinced we’re cats, the conversation soon turned to the newly-established scientific fact that men can get pregnant.

ABORTION ACTIVIST MALEEHA AZIZ: And I just wanted to acknowledge, a lot of people are being left out of the discussion today. As we know, people get pregnant and not just women. I hear people say over and over again that women get pregnant but that’s excluding people that should be part of this conversation.

We don’t want to exclude anyone. It turns out that even in 2021, there are still people out there claiming that only women get pregnant. They’d better stop claiming that, or else. Amanda Presto just learned this. Presto is a writer at the Daily Wire, and by the way a woman. She tweeted this thoughtcrime, assuming she had biology on her side. “Demanding others call you by your preferred pronouns and growing out your hair doesn’t make you a woman. Stop demeaning womanhood.”

No, Amanda. You stop demeaning pregnant men. For her attack on the pregnant man community, Twitter shut Amanda Presto down. We’re cats, and that’s all there is to it. And that’s true across the ocean In Britain, the head of the Labour Party has now declared that men, too, can have cervixes. Because of course they can. Meow. A few days later, a senior member of the Labour Party was asked whether she agreed with that observation. This was her reply:

NICK FERRARI, LBC NEWS HOST: Is it transphobic to say that only women have a cervix? Good Morning.

RACHEL REEVES, SHADOW CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER: Good Morning. It’s great to be with you. I just think that this issue has just become so divisive and toxic, and it pits people against each other both groups who have faced discrimination in society -women and trans women. I just find this debate incredibly unhelpful and unproductive, to be totally honest.

NICK FERRARI, LBC NEWS HOST: Is it transphobic yes or no?

RACHEL REEVES, SHADOW CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER: [Stammering] Is it transphobic? [Stammering] I don’t even know how to start answering these questions.

Oh, come on, Rachel Reeves, shadow commissioner or whatever you are of the Labour Party. It’s a simple question, it’s not a debate. Do men have cervixes? But she can’t bring herself to say it. On the other hand, she doesn’t dare note the obvious, which is that the entire conversation is completely insane. So she breathes heavily, she harrumphs quite a bit, and she tries to move on to the next topic.

The Washington Post is hoping to avoid moments of uncertainly like this. Jeff Bezos’ newspaper has just issued new style guidance to all of its reporters. “If we say pregnant women, we exclude those who are transgender and nonbinary.”

So no more pregnant women in the Washington Post. It’s an outdated, inherently offensive category, like secretaries and housewives. That’s true in many hospitals too across the country. Some physicians are now punishing subordinates who recognize biological differences between men and women. Dr. Lauren Chong, for example, a pediatric trainee at the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, recently told The New York Times that healthcare workers shouldn’t use terms like ovaries and uterus. “You can just say reproductive organs,” Chong said. And that’s an order.

The problem is that it may actually be medically relevant whether someone has ovaries and a uterus. Reproductive organs might not be specific enough. But honestly, in 2021, when we’re all cats, who cares? Curing disease may be important, but is it more important than not offending the Human Rights Campaign? Probably not.

That’s the conclusion the CDC has reached. The center just released a graphic pointing out that, “Only 31% of pregnant people have been vaccinated.” Not pregnant women, but pregnant people.

And then there’s the Lancet, which not very long ago was considered a serious medical journal, just released a cover with this headline. “Historically, the anatomy and physiology of bodies with vaginas have been neglected.”

So that’s the term. You thought you were a woman, but now you’re a “body with a vagina.” Try to imagine a more dehumanizing phrase. Probably not possible to imagine. At yesterday’s House Oversight hearing, Gloria Steinem showed up to prove she’s still alive and still relevant. For 50 years, Steinem has been, as she describes it, defending women. In the ’70s, she wrote a piece for Cosmopolitan Magazine entitled “If Men Could Menstruate.” As then she was constantly reminding us, “If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.” Oh, but now men can get pregnant, so the script has changed a little bit. Here was Gloria Steinem, who we should note is now a cat, meowing, telling us that absolutely anybody can get pregnant, and so anybody can get an abortion.

STEINEM: What’s happening in Texas is not only a local issue or a women’s issue. It’s a step against democracy which allows us to control our own bodies and our own voices. Remember when Hitler was elected, his very first official act was to padlock the family planning clinics and declare abortion a crime against the state, Mussolini did exactly the same thing, because they knew that controlling reproduction and nationalizing women’s bodies is the first step in an all-controlling state.

Gloria Steinem was always pretty dumb, but back when she was 35, nobody noticed. But rewriting history, can’t let you do that. Sorry, you’re not Wikipedia.

In fact, Hitler was an enthusiastic eugenicist, just like the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. Hitler encouraged abortion. According to almost everyone who has studied this – Jeffrey Tuomala, for example, a law professor who’s written extensively about the Nuremberg Trials – Hitler, like Gloria Steinem, supported abortion, not just as a matter of physical autonomy, but as a means of keeping women working and contributing to the economy.

“The Nazis preferred that the Eastern workers not become pregnant so they would not be taken out of the workforce They took measures to identify pregnant workers and to encourage or pressure them into making use of the abortion services the Nazis provided.”

Oh, does that sound familiar? Once again the goal is to reduce women to wage slaves. It is more virtuous to work at JP Morgan than it is to be a mother. That’s what they’re telling you. That’s what Ayanna Pressley is telling you. She complained that abortion bans are tools of — you guessed it — White supremacy. The “experts” at the hearings yesterday agreed:

PROFESSOR/ACTIVIST LORETTA ROSS: I think that it’s very important for us to understand the intersection of racial justice policies and gender justice policies and reproductive justice policies, Because you don’t understand why these bans on abortion are not about having more black and brown some babies born. They want more White babies to be born.

We’re falling for it again. Rising to the bait, being literal. Correcting insanity because it’s kind of hard to resist. There is no rational conversation about anything currently underway in the United States. We have to say, in the interest of fact-checking, what you just heard is the opposite of the truth. New York City is the biggest city in America. The abortion rate in New York among Black mothers is roughly three times the abortion rate for White mothers. Thousands more Black babies are aborted in New York than are born every year. So, shutting down the abortion clinics in New York, which nobody is even proposing, but if you were to do that, you’d have a lot more black babies than you have now.

But we can’t even get to that conversation, because we can no longer agree that only women have babies. Now men have babies. So for 50 years, they told us men have no interest in whether or not abortion is legal because they can’t have kids, but now they can, so we thought it would be worth weighing in on this.

According to the House Oversight Committee, it’s all for your own good:

DOCTOR GHAZALEH MOAYEDI: I know firsthand that abortion saves lives. For the thousands of people I’ve cared for, abortion is a blessing, abortion is an act of love, abortion is freedom. We need federal protection now.

Abortion is freedom, someone finally said it out loud. But is it?

    At the Treehouse yesterday, Sundance posted a video by Samson. Under ordinary circumstances, maybe he wouldn’t be my cup of tea. Since we live in clown world now, I found him pretty compelling, so I strolled through his channel seeing what else he had, and came across this video: Just leave the kids out of it. You might want to skip past the first 30 seconds or so unless you have some eye bleach handy…

    • Mike Austin October 3, 2021, 10:34 AM

      Oh God! I should have taken your advice about those first 30 seconds. Oh God!

      It’s a bit early, but I’m pouring a vodka and orange juice just to be safe.

    • PA Cat October 3, 2021, 11:47 AM

      There’s plenty of age regression as well as gender confusion to go around: there are chronological adults who want to live as adult babies. The Learning Channel (!) has a video series titled “My Crazy Obsession.” Here’s Stanley, who “is 31 years-old & has been obsessed with being an adult baby for the past 18 years. Every day involves spending time in baby mode, which includes wearing footie pajamas, eating baby food in a highchair, wearing a diaper & sleeping in a crib.”

      Wouldn’t surprise me if Biden is plagiarizing this guy.

      • Mike Austin October 3, 2021, 12:24 PM

        Why oh why did I click on that link? Is it not satire? After watching a minute or so I reached for my revolver.

        If true, that guys dysfunction is off the charts. As in, way off.

        • PA Cat October 3, 2021, 12:48 PM

          Sadly, that video is not satire. Adult baby syndrome, also known as paraphilic infantilism or psychosexual infantilism, is a bona fide psychiatric disorder. There is an academic website about the condition updated periodically by a German researcher: “An Adult Baby (AB) is simply someone who enjoys being a baby in fantasy or roleplay, often in diapers. Someone who enjoys diapers but doesn’t enjoy being a baby is called a Diaper Lover (DL). Since the groups overlap, they are called AB/DLs or ABDLs. ABDLs might have infantilism, a diaper fetish, some other condition, or might simply want to wear diapers and/or be a baby.”

          That’s probably more than you want to know, but here’s a link to the site:

          The website links to ABDL websites, social media groups, etc., which indicates to me that paraphilic infantilism is a genuine (though fortunately a minority) condition. In addition, it has nothing to do with pedophilia: adult babies want to be taken care of by other adults; thankfully, they do not act out with children.

        • PA Cat October 3, 2021, 12:52 PM

          I tried to answer you but the comment got stuck in Gerard’s spam filter. If he can unstick it, you’ll find that adult baby behavior is a recognized psychiatric disorder.

          • Mike Austin October 3, 2021, 1:30 PM

            What behavior these days is not “a recognized psychiatric disorder”? The US Government identifies guys like us that way.

            • jwm October 3, 2021, 7:51 PM

              This is the subtle evil of the Great Inversion. The two, uh- partners, in the video are just plain old normal “trans”. Those who find them disgusting are suffering from a mental illness called “Phobia”. The uh-partners’ behavior is normal. Your disapproval of their behavior is a symptom of mental illness.
              See how it works?


              • Mike Austin October 4, 2021, 12:29 AM

                I do indeed. And a “great inversion” it is. Isaiah has something to say on this:

                “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!”—5:20

                When I see such creatures cavorting and rubbing their grimy faces toward the Natural Law, it is not fear that overtakes me, but revulsion.

                  Those two “things” are nothing but sick, evil, and insane.

    Do men have cervixes?

    Technically, they do; all humans have cervices [doesn’t anybody know how to decline Latin nouns any more?], in that all humans have necks. That part of the body that joins the head to the upper chest is a cervix, just as the neck of the female uterus is also called a cervix. The human spine has seven vertebrae in the neck region– they’re called cervical vertebrae for a reason. The neck of the urinary bladder is called the cervix vesicae urinariae, and last I heard, men as well as women have urinary bladders.

    As for the meowing nuns, there are plenty of cases of groups of people developing a mass psychogenic illness of one kind or another. In the case of meowing young humans, there is a (thankfully rare) genetic syndrome caused by the loss of some of the material on the short arm of human chromosome 5. It’s called cri du chat syndrome (it was first identified by a French pediatrician in 1963, which is why it has a French name) because babies born with this genetic disorder make noises that sound like a kitten’s meowing.

    And if Tucker is correct that we are all cats now, then at least some cats are human, or at least talk like humans: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNeqyLBR0pc&ab_channel=WOOFTube
    It wouldn’t surprise me if Gerard’s Editor cusses him out when he makes too many typos.

    This is what the end result is of an environment where children are never allowed to grow up.
    They are probably permanently damaged.
    And since they are biological adults (with children minds) they are passing their disease to the next generation, which will be much worse. At some point they will have to be destroyed.

  • Lance de Boyle October 3, 2021, 4:34 PM

    Ironic, if that’s the word I want, but….
    social groups need deviants to set off reactions from the rest of us that show disgust, anger, nausea, and, if called for, direct action. That’s what keeps us sane and clean. Boundaries is the word I want.
    “Fuck off with that, bearded lady.”
    “That ain’t us, baby!”
    “Get the f outa here, nut job!”
    “Don’t try to normalize or valorize that pervy crap, fella,”
    “We don’t care what you feel or how you call it, it’s sickening, self-indulgent, messed up, bizarre, disgusting, demonic, and at the very least laughable.”

    If we can’t actually rid the group of these foul excrescences (unless of course they are raping babies, women, chickens, etc.), they can at least be “otherized,” which the pervs insist that we shall NOT do, or else they will cancel us or stamp their feet and wet their panties. OOoooo, cancelled.

    “Listen, ugly. We WILL see you as Other. You violate rules about what is shameful and disgusting, and you expect us not only to tolerate but to applaud what you call courage. How is cutting your dick off courage? No, we will ridicule you for your self-indulgent antics. We will not be told to embrace your psychodramatics. Remember that supremacy thing. If you don’t like it, go boil your head. Live your lives and leave us alone, or else you’ll find out what those in a superior position can do when they’ve had enough.”

    “I’ll tell you Doctor, my brother thinks he is a chicken.
    And we don’t talk him out of it because We need the eggs.”

    This, Groucho’s genius, speaks to the interplay between delusional thinking and the co-dependents that encourage delusional ideation for their own twisted reasons , specifically the entire fraudulent field of psychiatry. Now we about have the inmates running the asylum.

    • nunnya bidnez, jr October 4, 2021, 8:57 AM

      I’m not familiar with that quote from Groucho..

      I think you might be rembering the closing scene from Woody Allen’s Annie Hall…

      ” [ALVY’S VOICE-OVER ]
      After that it got pretty late. And we
      both hadda go, but it was great seeing
      Annie again, right? I realized what a
      terrific person she was and-and how much
      fun it was just knowing her and I-I
      thought of that old joke, you know, this-
      this-this guy goes to a psychiatrist and
      says, “Doc, uh, my brother’s crazy. He
      thinks he’s a chicken.” And, uh, the
      doctor says, “Well, why don’t you turn
      him in?” And the guy says, “I would, but
      I need the eggs.” Well, I guess that’s
      pretty much how how I feet about
      relationships. You know, they’re totally
      irrational and crazy and absurd and …
      but, uh, I guess we keep goin’ through it
      because, uh, most of us need the eggs.”

        Woody Allen is a shameless cad.

        From 1952, notice that Groucho’s joke is more polished. (probably dates back to Vaudeville.)

    • Mike Austin October 4, 2021, 12:35 AM

      “Hysteria’s here to stay. It’s in the interest of our betters. ”

      Without question. But such hysteria—from the Latin and Greek root for a woman’s uterus—cannot last long. All such have burnt themselves out before long, and the society reverts back to the norm. No elites, however degraded, can maintain forever such an assault upon reality.

      Our present mass hysteria is like a man who claims to not need air, and then holds his breath to prove it.

    “Medical Science” has now determined that sodomy can actually cause pregnancy.
    Obviously, that’s how Liberals are conceived.

    • Mike Austin October 5, 2021, 3:37 PM

      “Medical science” once believed in the theory of Four Humors. In bleeding patients. In Phrenology. In electro-shock therapy. I could go on and on.

      In my lifetime “medical science” condemned eggs, chocolate, red meat, fats, booze. A few years later it praised the benefits of them. “Medical science” taught the importance of the “food pyramid”. It turns out that this “pyramid” was a fraud. For fifty years “medical science” taught this nonsense. “Medical science” claimed all men over the age of 50—I am 68—needed to have a proctoscopy every year. Now it claims that the procedure “probably isn’t necessary”.

      The claims of “medical science” concerning statins, cholesterol, heart disease, cancer, AIDS and now COVID have all been based on false premises—a fancy phrase meaning “lies”.

      Who would take seriously today these white-coated, semi-educated liars who wear stethoscopes around their necks to prove their “trustworthiness”? I place more trust in prostitutes. At least they give their prices up front, keep their word and provide a real service.
