Hint: It's not the LGBTQWERTY crew.
Reading this essay about what Tik Tok is doing to young women made me realize that the progressive Catholics, led by the dimwitted Pope Francis and that monumental pervert, Father James Martin, have managed to lift up the voices of some of the most pampered people on Earth while kicking the most marginalized in the groin as hard as they could. They've accomplished the exact opposite of their stated goals.
Trauma dumping on the (Tik Tok) for you page sucks young girls into a pit of self-loathing...
Spiraling is an actual psychological term for becoming mentally dizzy. TikTok’s “for you page” (FYP) is overwhelming, piping a steady stream of the most viral videos to kids—a big departure from the social media norms of yesteryear, which mostly shared amateurish updates from kids’ subscribed channels. Girls who would normally say hi to friends and show off their pets now get adult content and other non-age appropriate material direct to their inbox. Feeding “smash-innocence” content to kids is part of the TikTok spiral...
The TikTok spiral, as described in a special Wall Street Journal series, is like digital cocaine...
TikTok provides the perfect milieu for body-image stressed girls to fixate on their perceived flaws and spiral into pathological habits...
In a manner analogous to an anorexic’s self-disgust at seeing her own body in a photograph, a gender-questioning girl can begin to hyper-focus on her female body with intensifying animus. Embodiment itself becomes triggering. One popular sound effect features an older woman’s voice musing, “I miss the girl you were,” before a voice representing the user replies, “I gutted that b**ch from the inside out.”
The most marginalized sexual community is straight, young women. They are getting whacked from all angles.
Note: From here on out, I'm going to use the terms girl and boy because they're a cleaner shorthand for the set girl, young woman, woman, etc. The terms also imply those years when courtship is most common.
Girls crave the focused, respectful, protective, sexual attentions of boys. This is central for God's plan for sexuality. Boys are designed to court pretty girls because they crave sex. Girls compete with each other for boys through appearance. After puberty, girls are naturally more neurotic, particularly about their worth in the eyes of boys.
Predictably, our progressive, secular culture has wrecked all of the mechanisms by which their neuroses are calmed.
- Girls are told they don't need boys. How we kneel at the altar of evolution and at the same time contradict its central motive force illustrates how we've discarded logic and objective reality.
- Boys are given cataracts of pornography. Orgasms are easily available without the need to be worthy of a girl.
- Boys are told masculinity is wrong. All of the traditional male attractions for girls are suppressed.
- Girls are told that they should pursue careers instead of becoming wives and mothers. Again, where are the evolutionary biologists?
- We see examples of girls beating up boys in our entertainment all the time. This works in two ways. First, it tells girl the lie that they don't need a boy to protect them. Second, it demotivates boys from becoming better boys by sneering at one of their most attractive qualities to girls.
It goes on and on and on. JP II laid this all out with logic, theology and wisdom in his Theology of the Body. Dim bulb Francis and his henchpervert James Martin are so thoroughly steeped in modern, progressive thought that they dismissed God's reality in exchange for far-left critical theory which categorizes each of us by group membership.
And so, in Fiducia Supplicans, they've managed to genuflect to one of the most powerful groups in the West while neglecting the ones that are most marginalized.

Does God have a plan, a template, an objective moral structure for sex or not? If not, why not? How did He manage to overlook our strongest evolutionary motivating force?
If He does have an objective moral structure for sex, why is it different than what JPII laid out in Theology of the Body?
"I'll just leave this little pamphlet here. You may read it at your leisure ..."
They don't address that in the confusing mess that is Fiducia Supplicans because it's not important to them any more than "uplifting marginalized voices" is. I described moral masturbation in the past and I think it fits perfectly here.
The diversity crowd feels a frisson of pleasure when someone like Lori Lightfoot, a black lesbian, wins an election. They're silent when Macy's leaves a 170,000 square foot hole in the Magnificent Mile and when Chicago murders skyrocket, almost all of which are black-on-black.
It's not that they don't know, it's that they are solving a totally different equation than what they claim.
They are not fighting inequality, they're morally masturbating. Diversity, trans, racial justice, all of it is just pornography. It feels so good, but nothing gets done. Further, they risk nothing, since it's the mania du jour. No one will be canceled if they encourage a young girl to take lethal doses of testosterone. Instead, they might be elected President.
The secular left has played havoc with the sex lives of the younger generations all while claiming to inclusive and accepting. With Fiducia Supplicans, progressive Catholics have joined them.
They want to feel morally righteous while joining with the most powerful organizations on the planet. The marginalized can get lost.
Which they are.
