Yesterday we wrote this blog about Maura Healey and a narcissistic mother using a confused 7 year old girl and her 8 year old sister as political props at an anti-Trump press conference.
Turns out the girl’s mother is already famous in SJW circles. And as usual, she’s an extremely wealthy white woman from the almost exclusively wealthy white suburb of Melrose. Her name is Mimi Lemay, and she desperately wants attention. She made this Youtube video a couple years ago, along with many others.
She also wrote this viral “open letter” to her “son” Jacob when he turned five. And as we’ve seen time and time again, the only people who write “open letters” are self-serving narcissists who desperately want to be patted on the back. The “open letter” was published on Boston.com. It’s pretty long so let’s look at bits and pieces of it:
“You never asked us to call you anything but Mia, your birth name, in the public arena. But our soothing acceptance never seemed to be enough. You became watchful and guarded at school and in public. At home, there were many occasions that you let go, hitting, kicking and punching, wailing and screaming: “Don’t talk to me!’’ “Get away from me,’’ and frequently, “You ruin everything!’’ Your anger seemed atypical, in excess of the ordinary emotional vicissitudes of being 3.”
Whoa!! Stop the fight!! A 3 year old throwing a temper tantrum? Never thought I’d see that day. I know Turtleboy Jr. has NEVER told me to get away from me, or “don’t talk to me.” These things only happen to 3 year olds who were places inside the wrong body by……nature.
“You had always been jolly and loving as an infant, but now I was the only one you would kiss and hug — you frequently exploded if anyone else tried to show you affection. Sometimes, even with me, if I casually brushed your hair with my hand or gave you an unsolicited hug, you would recoil and bark angrily at me.
Newsflash – there’s nothing abnormal about a three year old child who only wants their mother. Welcome to my world. When Turtleboy Jr. wakes up in the middle of the night crying and I walk into his room, ya know what happens? He bangs his fist against the wall and yells “I want Momma.” Thanks a lot asshole. Here I was looking for a loving moment of embrace between father and son, and you yell at me like I’m the waiter who forgot to take the onions of your burger. Nice to see you too.
And that was another thing — your new, quite unsociable habit of pretending you were a dog when people addressed you. You would lope around in a circle, as if chasing an invisible tail, tongue hanging out, “Aarf! Aarrrf!!’’ leaving us to explain your odd behaviors.”
So let me get this straight. The three year old girl says she’s a dog, and it was dismissed as “odd behavior.” But the three year old girl says she’s a boy, and Mommy and Daddy stop everything they’re doing and cater to the child’s delusion. Makes sense.
But then one day in the late fall of your third year, I attended a routine parent-teacher conference. Your teacher expressed her concern in hesitant tones: “You know, Mrs. Lemay, has it ever occurred to you, is it possible — that Mia may actually believe she is a boy?’’
Wait…..what? A pre-school “teacher” at a parent-teacher conference told you that your daughter might be a boy, and you accepted this? Yup, that sounds like a perfectly SANE thing to do.
“It was soon February again, and we celebrated your fourth birthday. And you grew taller, wiser, and accomplished many things. Over the winter break, I had tentatively broached the topic: Would you be happier with a boyish/unisex name at school? You categorically refused. Your answer gave me a covert thrill of hope. I dared to dream that you were not fully committed to being a boy, and that you would be one of the preponderance of kids who ‘figured it out’ because their parents didn’t make a huge deal out of it. For use at home, you settled with us on a name, which sounded similar to your given name, in order to avoid the confusion of the daily merry-go-round of arbitrary boy names. We urged you, and you accepted the name Mica.”
What planet am I on where four year old children get to tell their parents what their name is? Your name is Mia because we made you, went through nine months of pregnancy, sacrificed everything for you, and then put Mia on your birth certificate right next to the checkbox that says “female.” End of story. The fact that parents think a four year old is capable of dictating such life altering choices is child neglect. It’s easier to be a passive parent so as to avoid a child’s temper tantrum. This isn’t brave, it’s lazy.
Look at some of the comments left on Mimi Lemay’s Facebook page, back when “Jacob” was still Mia:
“What a great photo of the three lovely ladies.”
“They’re clearly sisters.”
“Wonderful girls, all.”
“She’s got moves.”
Sounds pretty transphobic to me. I know when the doctor told us that Turtleboy Jr. was a boy I almost smacked her in the face for her thoughtless misgendering.
Here’s my question – how come the only people who end up having transgender children just so happen to be left wing fanatics? Because it seems like quite the coincidence to me. And that’s exactly what Mimi Lemay is:
You voted for black lives matter? If black lives matter so much then why do you intentionally live so far away from them?
You voted for Freddie Gray? A man who sold opiates to vulnerable people during a heroin epidemic? A man who was a career criminal and ran from police on the day he died? A man who if he moved to your wealthy community of Melrose, would cause a mass exodus of people like you to Stoneham?
You voted for Latino friends and neighbors? You live in Melrose, where 92% of the population is white. You have no Latino friends or neighbors.
You voted for Muslim friends and neighbors? Less than 1% of the population of population in Melrose is Muslim. You have no Muslim friends or neighbors.
These people are so full of shit it’s not even funny. They live to regurgitate meaningless feel good bullshit like this so people will like them and they feel like they have a purpose.
Here you are using your confused six year old as a pawn, as you are so apt to do:
Here you are showing off one of your many paid speaking engagements that you’ve gotten as a result of your new found advocacy:
Here you are again at another “look at me and pat me on the back for calling my daughter Jacob” speaking engagement at Melrose High School.
Here you are protesting at the woman’s march – a march where conservative women were specifically excluded from expressing their viewpoints as speakers.
Here you are yet again as the center of attention, after accepting an award for your bravery to acquiesce to the delusions of a three year old.
Here is your daughter back when she was a girl:
And here she is again, still a girl, except wearing pants and having a shorter haircut.
The really twisted part about this is how much Mimi Lemay is profiting from all this. In 2018 Houghton-Mifflin is publishing her book, “A Boy Named Jacob.” When you get published by Houghton-Mifflin, which basically has a monopoly on textbooks in American public schools, you’re going to make a LOT of money. And ultimately you can figure out people’s motivation when you follow the money. This woman is using her seven year old child’s delusion for financial gain.
“Civil rights advocate.” Anyone who labels themselves a “civil rights advocate” is a self-satisfied egomaniac. They are putting themselves on the same level as MLK and Rosa Parks by referring to themselves with the same label those American heroes did. As if the people who disagree with her twisted world view are anti-civil rights.
Here’s her work experience:
She has experience as a marketing consultant! Of course she does. What do you think she’s doing with her own daughter? She’s using them as part of a marketing scheme to sell more books. These people aren’t heroes. They’re scam artists.
Look where else she’s worked:
Of course she taught at a charter school. But hey conservatives, keep telling me how great these things are. You don’t look stupid or anything like that. Because we’ve shown time and time again that in Massachusetts, charter schools are nothing more than for-profit training grounds for social justice warriors to brainwash children.
Here’s the thing – nothing is going to change in Massachusetts. And all Trump did was make the locker room stuff a state’s rights issue. “Jacob” will be allowed to use the boy’s locker room when she gets to high school, because Jamie Eldridge and company aren’t going to be making any laws preventing her from doing so. When all the other boys change and shower in front of her, some might feel uncomfortable doing so in front of someone who does not have a penis. But they’re just bigoted transphobes so we don’t have to pay attention to their legitimate concerns.
The only people who will be affected by this are transgender children in Oklahoma. That’s about it. This is what you’re freaking out about – a boy who wants to use the girl’s locker room in Tulsa. Your obsession with issues like this is the reason Donald Trump is President, and this message obviously hasn’t gotten through to you. Because the 75,000 people in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin who voted for Trump are far more worried about their jobs and the threat of terrorism than they are about misgendering “Jacob” and using the wrong pronouns. You’re not getting this very simple concept, and so long as you continue to do this you will only alienate more people and ensure eight years of Donald J. Trump.
