Dialectical unity of self-contradictions is an ironic expression coined by Slovak author Ladislav Mňačko in his satirical novel "Comrade Münchhausen" where he, in a grotesque allegory, pointed at the demagogic aspects and lack of consistency in materialistic philosophies, notably of Marxist origin, which illegitimately usurp the label of "scientific world view."[1]

Dialectical Unity of Self-contradictions in Gender/LGBT+ ideology

Like the trial lawyer who has no hesitation to argue two entirely inconsistent theories of defense as long as the jury brings in a wished verdict on either one of them, "LGBT" advocates also seek verdict of public opinion on the basis of two clearly self-serving contradictory arguments:

  • When they wish to enjoy their supposed Constitutional freedom of sexual preference or lifestyle, they speak frankly of what they do in terms of sexual conduct. In that context, the exercise of personal choice is freely and openly acknowledged. For example, Allan Metcalf, a champion of so-called gender studies, claimed: “So young people nowadays have choices to make that they didn't face before. And it's not a once-for-all choice; they can question and redefine themselves at any time. ... it's your choice to be called lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning, intersex, asexual – or something else. ... We have reached the point that regardless of anatomy, you can choose your gender identity. And you can choose to change your gender identity as often as you change your clothes.[2][3]
  • But when, on the other hand, they are trying to obtain the rights of minority groups like race and gender, then it is expedient for them to speak in terms of status and the argument is made that homosexuals have no choice about who they are sexually.[4] For example, in 2015, an article titled “'Gay genes': science is on the right track, we're born this way. Let’s deal with it.” popped up in The Guardian.[5]
