The World Health Organization is accused of being “sexist and paternalistic” after making the overreaching advisement that women of childbearing age should be banned from drinking alcohol, according to reports. 

While there is scientific evidence to support the fact that consuming alcohol while pregnant has negative impacts on a baby’s health, the U.N. agency’s suggestion not only suggests preventing pregnant women from consuming alcohol, but any woman of “childbearing age”, which is considered between age 18 and 50. 

The WHO’s global alcohol action plan for 2022-2030 urges countries to pay “appropriate attention to prevention” of consumption in certain groups, including teens and women of childbearing age, the UK’s Telegraph reported.

On Wednesday, June 16th, Matt Lambert, head of the Portman Group, the social responsibility and regulatory body for alcohol in the UK, quickly criticized the WHO’s announcement, saying its officials had gone “well beyond their remit,” according to the outlet.

Lambert said:

“We are extremely concerned by the WHO calling on countries to prevent drinking among women of childbearing age in their latest action plan,” 

He added:

“As well as being sexist and paternalistic, and potentially restricting the freedoms of most women, it goes well beyond their remit and is not rooted in science,” 

Lambert went on to say:

“It is wrong to scaremonger in this irresponsible way and associate women’s alcohol-related risks with those of children and pregnant people,” 

According to the WHO plan:

“appropriate attention should be given to prevention of the initiation of drinking among children and adolescents, prevention of drinking among pregnant women and women of childbearing age.”

Christopher Snowdon, head of lifestyle economics at the Institute of Economic Affairs, called the plan “a classic World Health Organization idiocy.”

According to The Telegraph, Snowdon said:

“Not content with repeatedly dropping the ball on COVID-19 and dishing out awards to politicians for banning vaping, it now thinks most of the world’s women should abstain from alcohol,” 

He added:

“The idea that it is unsafe for women of childbearing age to drink any alcohol is unscientific and absurd. Moreover, it is none of the WHO’s business,”

The notion that women should refrain from alcohol for over thirty years, just incase they may become pregnant at some point is preposterous. Additionally, the notion that all women of childbearing age even want to have children is sexist in itself. 

Mr. Angus, a senior research fellow who specializes on alcohol, said:

“The suggestion that we should actively prevent a substantial proportion of women from drinking is completely at odds with the balance of the risks of drinking and restrictions on personal freedom that we see in almost any country in the world,” 

While no one wants to see a child born with health problems due to the consumption of alcohol, it is a complete violation of a woman’s civil liberties to deny them the right to consume whatever legal substances they wish.

Peer-reviewed healthcare journal: Whiteness is a ‘parasitic-like condition’ that needs treatment but has no cure

June 12, 2021

This article contains editorial content by a Law Enforcement Today staff writer.

NEW YORK, NY- This guy puts the “psycho” in psychoanalyst. The Blaze reports that a “doctor,” Dr. Donald Moss, a New York City psychoanalyst published an article in a peer-reviewed health care journal in which he called whiteness “a malignant, parasitic-like condition” with no “permanent cure.”

It should be noted that Moss is white.

 

The article, titled “On Having Whiteness” appeared in the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association last month.

“Whiteness is a condition one first acquires and then one has—a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which ‘white’ people have a particular susceptibility,” he wrote.

“Parasitic whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites target nonwhite peoples. Once established, these appetites are nearly impossible to eliminate.”

According to Fox News:

“Moss argues that white people possess an ‘entitled dominion’ that enables the ‘host’ to wield power ‘without limit, force without restriction, violence without mercy,’ and increases one’s desire to terrorize.’” 

He also said that “any infant is vulnerable to the parasite of whiteness.” 

The article written by Moss, a current faculty member of both the New York Psychoanalytic Institute and the San Francisco Center of Psychoanalysis, went viral on social media once it got out in the mainstream.

Moss explains in his own twisted, perverse way how one might pursue treatment for such an affliction.

“Effective treatment consists of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions,” he wrote.

“Such interventions can reasonably aim only to reshape Whiteness’s infiltrated appetites—to reduce their intensity, redistribute their aims, and occasionally turn those aims toward the work of reparation,” he said.

If anyone wonders why American colleges and universities are turning out a bunch of self-loathing, America-hating whiners, look at who is “educating” them in our “institutions of higher learning.” If you want to know if a comment is racist, flip the races and see if it makes you feel uncomfortable. If it does, which these clearly do, it’s racist.

Moss continued that “the ravages wreaked by the chronic condition can function either as warning (“never again”) or as temptation (“great again”).”

He said that “Memorialization alone, therefore, is no guarantee against regression” and currently, “there is not yet a permanent cure.”

Breitbart News reported that Moss’s “work” was widely panned, with one psychologist in particular wondering how this could be considered “scholarship.”

In fact, according to RT, Moss’s writings were so absurd and bizarre that some observers believed it to be either fictional, or even satirical of the anti-white wokeness that has become so prevalent in the past 13 months.

In 2019 according to Newsweek:

“In 2019, he delivered his theory describing whiteness as a parasitic condition as a plenary address for the South African Psychoanalytical Association and also lectured on it at the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and at the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies in New York.”

According to the American Psychoanalytic Association website, Moss claimed that since the mid-1980s, he has “been working on clinical/theoretical/activist perspectives that aim to understand and dismantle structured forms of hatred-‘hating in the first person plural’—racism, homophobia, misogyny and xenophobia.”

Moss is also (shocker) a climate change activist and a founding member of a group called the “Green Gang,” a “group of analysts and scientists focusing on climate change and its denial.”

Yet as crazy as Moss’s article was, there are apparently some in mental health circles who buy into the same type of lunacy. For example, last October, the American Journal of Community Psychology published an article calling for greater awareness and understanding of “whiteness,” as well as interventions to “dismantle whiteness.”

To really see how far off the rails this woke, anti-white nonsense has gotten, we take you to that bastion of higher learning, Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

Last week it was revealed that in April, a New York psychiatrist and psychoanalyst (there you go, another psycho) Aruna Khilanani lectured at the university on “the psychopathic problem of the white mind.”

Here is some of what she said:

“I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step,” in remarks to students and faculty.

Her remarks continued with her saying that white patients were similar to a “demented, violent predator who thinks they are a saint or superhero.”

Yale hosted the virtual lecture and facilitated a recording of it on their website, albeit with restricted access. When the contents of the lecture came to light, Yale issued a weak statement in which they said the tone and content of the talk were “antithetical to the values of the school.”

Khilanani’s remarks provoked outrage on social media.

Speaking of wackos:
