If you haven’t heard of Project 2025, the Heritage Foundation’s playbook for staffing the next Trump administration, I suggest you read up on it right away.

Project 2025 is an action plan for how to use the most extreme versions of the unitary executive theory to weaponize the federal government into an instrument of authoritarian theocratic ethno-nationalism. It’s difficult to overstate the extent to which a key element in this all-out culture war is the re-subjugation of women to a regime in which they’re stripped of their sexual freedom, in the name of insane ideas such as that birth control is bad because it robs sex of “consequentiality” (for women):

The automatic reactionary centrist rationalization of this stuff is that well it’s just a random nut on the Internet. It absolutely is not. The Heritage Foundation is going to be quite literally staffing all levels of the federal government with people like this. Again, this isn’t some secret conspiracy: it’s a totally open conspiracy.

Here I want to acknowledge the role that longtime LGM commenter Karen Cassandra of Texas has played in raising my consciousness, as they used to say in the 1970s, about the extent to which the most extreme misogyny is absolutely central to contemporary right wing ideology in this country. These people might actually hate sexual freedom for women more than they hate the idea of an America not run by white men.

That this movement is run by noted advocate of chastity and abstinence Donald Trump is just part of God’s ever-mysterious plan, “folly to the Greeks,” as my namesake once put it.

This is a war, and we need to win it.
