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] In his 1932 book "Toward Soviet America", William Z. Foster, leader of the Communist Party of the United States of America, claimed that the future "American Soviet government" will further "the cultural revolution" by means of grouping the schools, colleges and universities under the National Department of Education and enforcing "revolutionized" curriculum that would be based on Marxian dialectical materialism thus "cleansed of religious, patriotic and other features of bourgeois ideology". Religious schools would be abolished and organized religious training for minors prohibited. Freedom would be established only for antireligious propaganda.[2]

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

Dialectical Unity exposed
"Sexual Orientation is Fixed, but Gender’s Completely Fluid. And 2 + 2 = 5."
— Joseph Sciambra[3]

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.[4][5]
  • 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.[6] 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.[7] Another example is radical homosexual activist Dan Savage who shifts the burden on proof on the opponents of the "LGBT" demagoguery while asking them to prove the negative for the claims of no choice for vaguely defined, and beyond the reach of scientific scrutiny, "LGBT people".[8] This cultural myth that homosexuality is inborn and immutable was trumpeted by John Kerry in front of an audience of 51 million during the final presidential debate in 2004. Flying in the face of the facts, he − as nominee for President of the United States on behalf of Democratic Party − misled the public by declaring: "If you talk to anybody, it's not a choice." No doubt this assertion pleased gay activists seeking credibility for the view that homosexuality is normative and should be embraced by society.[9]

After Val Kalende had renounced her former lesbian lifestyle and reidentified herself from LGBT to TBGL – Transformed by God's Love, LGBT activist Stella Nyanzi has tried to undermine Kalende's transformation by suggesting she can “relapse” back into homosexuality because “sexuality is fluid.” Many LGBT activists intensely dispute the notion that sexual attraction can be changed, though in recent years some voices such as Lisa Diamond have advised their allies to “stop saying ‘born that way and can’t change’ for political purposes, because the other side knows it’s not true as much as we do.”[10]
