In a world that the identity politics has wrought, lived experience is a trump (apologies for the use of a triggering word) card: your viewpoint or opinion on an issue is automatically deemed invalid or at least less valid and valuable if youre not a member of a group whose plight is being discussed. Men cant really know what its like to be women, white people cant really know what its like to be people of colour, the straight ones cant really know what its like to have other sexual orientations. Your identity is your argument; You wouldnt know what its like; you cant tell me what I should think or feel. Youre only allowed to walk in somebody elses shoes to the extent you can feel the same callouses, otherwise give me my shoes back. This sort of epistemological approach rears its head nowadays in everything from most political debates to the calls that fiction authors should not write through characters of different gender, race or sexuality. Just like cultural appropriation, identity appropriation is a grave sin against minorities (or, in case of women, majorities).
As a straight, white, Christian, right-wing, middle class male of European extraction I get told to shut up a lot. As you can imagine, this does not at all stop me from speaking out. The white privilege clearly makes me both uncontrollable and insufferable.
But if lived experience is indeed the be-all-end-all that the identarian left considers it to be, there is one area where my lived experience without a doubt shit all over the lived experience of the woke folk.

Correction - Don’t care, don’t want to know.
The Dirty War (page 99)
In February 1919, after the general advance of the Bolsheviks into Ukraine and southern Russia, the first detachment of the Red Army penetrated the Cossack territories along the Don. At the outset the Bolsheviks took measures to destroy everything that made the Cossacks a separate group: their land was confiscated and redistributed among Russian colonizers or local peasants who did not have Cossack status; they were ordered, on pain of death, to surrender all their arms (historically, as the traditional frontier soldiers of the Russian empire, all Cossacks had a right to bear arms); and all Cossack administrative assemblies were immediately dissolved.
All these measures were part of the preestablished de-Cossackization plan approved in a secret resolution of the Bolshevik Party's Central Committee on 24 January 1919: "In view of the experiences of the civil war against the Cossacks, we must recognize as the only politically correct measure massive terror and a merciless fight against the rich Cossacks, who must be exterminated and physically disposed of, down to the last man." 34
In practice, as acknowledged by Reingold, the president of the Revolu- tionary Committee of the Don, who was entrusted with imposing Bolshevik rule in the Cossack territories, "what was carried out instead against the Cossacks was an indiscriminate policy of massive extermination." 35 From mid- February to mid-March 1919, Bolshevik detachments executed more than 8,000 Cossacks. 36 In each stanitsa (Cossack village) revolutionary courts passed summary judgments in a matter of minutes, and whole lists of suspects were condemned to death, generally for "counterrevolutionary behavior." In the face of this relentless destruction, the Cossacks had no choice but to revolt.
Note: January 24, 1919 is the first documented use of the terminology "Politically Correct" that I have been able to find. And it's used in the context of approving of genocide.
bkmk - so the term “politically correct” was coined by communists...color me surprised.
The problem is, many have told of their experiences before, but those for whom this is directed at will refuse to listen because they know better, even though they don’t. As the saying goes, those that fail to learn history will soon be sucked by that lack of knowledge into believing the wrong view.
They can keep their hairy butt holes. And I think gay male sex is retarded and an affront to god. And no one will ever change that opinion.
Watch: The Hunt for Red October. Each vessel had a PC officer on board.
It is not sexuality; it is carnality. Two males cannot reproduce.
They are not other sexual orientations; they are other erotic orientations. Sexuality is inherently defined by reproduction.
