Out of a Job for Crossing the PC Mob

Aren’t left­ists the ones always howl­ing about how peo­ple to the right of them are “anti-​science”? Then how is it that a sim­ple state­ment about human DNA which is sci­en­tif­i­cally true caused a man to lose his liveli­hood? If you guessed that he must have said some­thing about how humans are cre­ated as male or female due to biol­ogy (and not as a “social con­struct”), you win.

It all starts on stu­pid Face­book, where peo­ple were com­ment­ing about how a male rap celebrity declined to receive a kiss from a male who iden­ti­fies as female. The rap­per, Gin­uwine, got him­self labelled as “trans­pho­bic” for his “hate­crime” of turn­ing down a kiss from some­one he is not attracted to. No “#metoo” for him. No defense for refus­ing advances made by mem­bers of a pre­ferred demo­graphic; sub­mit or be destroyed is the rule these days! And no defense for any­one who says oth­er­wise, either!

Enter Will Cali­gan, dis­abled war vet­eran, who com­mit­ted the ter­ri­ble thought crime of say­ing that if you were born male then you are male and that you can’t change DNA. He said this on Face­book. The hor­ror! Pre­dictably, the OUT­RAGE!!!! did not take long to erupt along with the demands that he lose his job and be dri­ven from polite soci­ety. Of course the mob got its way:

Will Cali­gan is a Desert Shield and Desert Storm vet­eran who was an Air­borne Coun­ter­in­tel­li­gence Agent who attained the rank of Spe­cial­ist. He recently lost his job as a comic book cre­ator because of his con­ser­v­a­tive beliefs.

Cali­gan decided to express his opin­ion about a trend­ing news topic. Rap­per Gin­uwine refused to kiss a trans­gen­der per­son. He com­mented on his friend’s Face­book wall about his beliefs on the subject.

Cali­gan told us, “The only thing I put was that DNA was sci­ence and of God. That a per­son could not change their sex no mat­ter what they did. It is a nat­ural con­struct. In total the state­ment was only about three sen­tences long.” You can see above that pretty much sums up what he said.

Despite Caligan’s views being held by many oth­ers, that did not stop a witch hunt against him that ended up caus­ing him to lose his job.

The per­pet­u­ally offended began a cam­paign on Face­book to harass Caligan’s employer, a comic book com­pany called Short Fuse Media. Will Cali­gan, alerted his boss to the issue and was ini­tially told not to worry about it, but then the pres­sure must have got­ten to the Short Fuse peo­ple because not long after the ini­tial reas­sur­ance, Cali­gan was not only out of a job but also pub­licly denounced by the com­pany and had been advised to apol­o­gize and hence­forth keep his opin­ions out of pub­lic view — for his own good, of course! Via PJMe­dia:

Cali­gan con­tacted Sean Mack, his boss at Short Fuse Media Group, who seemed to take the whole thing in stride at first, writ­ing in a com­mu­ni­ca­tion, “If it’s not this, it would be for some­thing else. Don’t stress over it. I’m good and we’re deal­ing with it head on. I have your back!” He quickly changed his tune with no expla­na­tion — pre­sum­ably after being threat­ened by rabid SJWs and fac­ing too much pres­sure by the lynch mob — and cut ties with Cali­gan. “I’m going to have to put some dis­tance between us until you can change the per­cep­tion peo­ple have of you,” wrote Mack. “I think you can fix this. It’s really up to you. Apol­o­gize and keep your com­ments and beliefs to your inner cir­cle instead of pub­lic forums.”

You read that right. Will Cali­gan lost his job with Short Fuse Media Group because com­ments were deemed offen­sive. But Will tells us that los­ing his job wasn’t the worst part.

“Sean told me he was going to cut ties but in his press release he pretty much threw me under the bus. The issue was not get­ting fired. I think he has a right to work with whom ever he wants but what he doesn’t have the right to do is slan­der my name and throw me under the bus to do it. If his press release would have just said “We are cut­ting ties with Alpha Dog Stu­dios” then I prob­a­bly would have just let it go but that isn’t what he did. You can read the press release. He attacks me in it.”

And that’s exactly what the press release does. It attacks Will. But what’s even more ironic is that in the same press release where they are sev­er­ing ties with Will for express­ing his beliefs, the Short Fuse Media Group claims to “sup­port and respect all PEO­PLE from ALL walks of life.” Appar­ently, they don’t really believe that.

So there you have it: if you think that biol­ogy deter­mines gen­der for human beings, you had bet­ter keep it to your­self if you do not want to be pub­licly denounced and hounded out of your job because you are appar­ently just like Hitler or some­thing, and if you are a het­ero­sex­ual male and a male who iden­ti­fies as female wishes to be phys­i­cally affec­tion­ate with you, you had bet­ter com­ply or you are also just like Hitler or some­thing. This is the lunatic age we live in, until peo­ple stop fear­ing the left­ist thought police mob, anyway.

If you are sym­pa­thetic to Will Cali­gan, you can offer him some words of encour­age­ment HERE, but be aware that doing so will likely out you as being just like Hitler or some­thing (it’s to his post on Face­book about the situation).

Aren’t leftists the ones always howling about how people to the right of them are “anti-science”? Then how is it that a simple statement about human DNA which is scientifically true caused a man to lose his livelihood? If you guessed that he must have said something about how humans are created as male or female due to biology (and not as a “social construct”), you win.

It all starts on stupid Facebook, where people were commenting about how a male rap celebrity declined to receive a kiss from a male who identifies as female. The rapper, Ginuwine, got himself labelled as “transphobic” for his “hatecrime” of turning down a kiss from someone he is not attracted to. No “#metoo” for him. No defense for refusing advances made by members of a preferred demographic; submit or be destroyed is the rule these days! And no defense for anyone who says otherwise, either!

Enter Will Caligan, disabled war veteran, who committed the terrible thought crime of saying that if you were born male then you are male and that you can’t change DNA. He said this on Facebook. The horror! Predictably, the OUTRAGE!!!! did not take long to erupt along with the demands that he lose his job and be driven from polite society. Of course the mob got its way:

Will Caligan is a Desert Shield and Desert Storm veteran who was an Airborne Counterintelligence Agent who attained the rank of Specialist. He recently lost his job as a comic book creator because of his conservative beliefs.

Caligan decided to express his opinion about a trending news topic. Rapper Ginuwine refused to kiss a transgender person. He commented on his friend’s Facebook wall about his beliefs on the subject.

Caligan told us, “The only thing I put was that DNA was science and of God. That a person could not change their sex no matter what they did. It is a natural construct. In total the statement was only about three sentences long.” You can see above that pretty much sums up what he said.

Despite Caligan’s views being held by many others, that did not stop a witch hunt against him that ended up causing him to lose his job.

The perpetually offended began a campaign on Facebook to harass Caligan’s employer, a comic book company called Short Fuse Media. Will Caligan, alerted his boss to the issue and was initially told not to worry about it, but then the pressure must have gotten to the Short Fuse people because not long after the initial reassurance, Caligan was not only out of a job but also publicly denounced by the company and had been advised to apologize and henceforth keep his opinions out of public view – for his own good, of course!   Via PJMedia:

Caligan contacted Sean Mack, his boss at Short Fuse Media Group, who seemed to take the whole thing in stride at first, writing in a communication, “If it’s not this, it would be for something else. Don’t stress over it. I’m good and we’re dealing with it head on. I have your back!” He quickly changed his tune with no explanation — presumably after being threatened by rabid SJWs and facing too much pressure by the lynch mob — and cut ties with Caligan. “I’m going to have to put some distance between us until you can change the perception people have of you,” wrote Mack. “I think you can fix this. It’s really up to you. Apologize and keep your comments and beliefs to your inner circle instead of public forums.”

So there you have it: if you think that biology determines gender for human beings, you had better keep it to yourself if you do not want to be publicly denounced and hounded out of your job because you are apparently just like Hitler or something, and if you are a heterosexual male and a male who identifies as female wishes to be physically affectionate with you, you had better comply or you are also just like Hitler or something. This is the lunatic age we live in, until people stop fearing the leftist thought police mob, anyway.

If you are sympathetic to Will Caligan, you can offer him some words of encouragement HERE, but be aware that doing so will likely out you as being just like Hitler or something (it’s to his post on Facebook about the situation).
