The Appalling Lack Of Diversity In English Literature

All but one of the following books is recognised as among the greatest works of fiction of all time:

A: Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austin

B: A Farewell To Arms, by Ernest Hemingway

C: The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald

D: The Transgendered Lion and Xer Non-Binary Autistic Human Companion, by Mohammed Al Jihad

Which is the odd one out?

You would be correct if you answered D. Regrettably, Al Jihad’s marvelous opus is not included in any list of the so-called ‘great works of fiction’. It is to our great regret and shame that dead white authors still occupy such lists instead of up and coming writers like Al Jihad.

We must therefore ask ourselves: what could Al Jihad have done ‘better’ in order to earn the acclaim he richly merits? Apart from being a white male of course, we might add snarkily.

Perhaps he could have created a great sexual tension between a rich but flawed white male and a fragile, married cis-female. This certainly worked well for Fitzgerald with the blatantly heterosexual Gatsby and Daisy. Maybe Al Jihad would have succeeded if he had included landed gentry in his story. Jane Austin did this successfully, over and over again, with working class people relegated to minor roles (read domestic slavery) in her books which unashamedly promoted a patriarchal society as the desired norm. Finally, a fierce lion could well find itself as the central protagonist in a celebrated Hemingway book about hunting; however, a transgendered lion would certainly not as it would not be considered ‘butch’ enough for Hemingway!

OK, we admit that The Transgendered Lion … has not been published. Or even written. But, this is beside the point – why on Allah’s green earth has such a novel NOT been written?

Conservatives argue hatefully that ‘market demand’ for a book exploring the imaginary friendship between a transgendered lion and a non-binary AND autistic human is likely to be low. They claim that few readers could possibly empathise with either of these two central characters because ‘most people’s’ world-views are at odds with those of the protagonists.

We disrespectfully disagree on both counts. In the first place, market demand can be created by allocating government spending on education to where it is most needed. It would be quite simple, and indeed socially desirable, for the government to require studying ‘The Transgendered Lion‘ to be part of the national curriculum. Secondly, initiatives such as the common core and the infiltration of progressive ideas in media, government and education in recent years mean that our youth is ready to embrace diversity in literature like never before.

All we need now is for Mohammed Al Jihad to get writing!

I’m angry Pbeir, you had me so excited with “The Transgendered Lion and Xer Non-Binary Autistic Human Companion, by Mohammed Al Jihad” that I didn’t finish the article and got on Amazon to buy the book for my kids. I couldn’t find it anywhere so I finished the article and BAM!!! you said it doesn’t exist. Such a let down man. I’m feeling triggered.

Thanks for the advanced plug. While the title will be in Infidel English, the body will be in Arabic.

Do you ever find books in your USA public library that are NOT wtitten in English? No. More racism in the Infidel States of America.

Muhammad, to be quite frank, you should be awarded a New York Times bestseller spot simply for being Muslim, even if you never sell a single copy. It’s the Current Year, and being a member of a victim group IS a qualification according to identity politics.

I advise you to take large loans from your friendly neighborhood loan sharks in order to print as many copies as possible for the practically infinite demand this book will have.

Jewish bankers are unlikely to fund anything written in Arabic, more then likely because of the low literacy rate in Muslim countries.

It’s an absolute travesty, and yet more evidence of white privilege, that whites are held up as the greatest writers and artists of all time. There are TONS of other artists who don’t get half as much attention in school textbooks. Just look at how African Americans have taken the music world by storm, putting Beethoven, Bach and Mozart to shame! Just think what they could do for literature if they were given half a chance!

Well we know from CRT that whites came and destroyed Africa. Every single book ever written by Africans prior to that has been destroyed. That is just how efficiently ruthless white people are, despite being clumsy and buffoonishly stupid at the same time. Otherwise, why is there not ONE example of pre-colonialism african literature in existence??

It is a shame that there are practically no books in sub Sahara Africa, except those translated from English. Must be a sign of something but for the life of me I can’t quite figure out what. (wink wink)

It is also a shame that there are no books coming out of Muslim nations as well, except one about a pedophile, rapist, murderer, extortionist, and bandit who loved to dress up in the clothes of his child bride in order to receive divine revelation..

After the Arabs conquered Egypt as sad ending resulted for the books of the Library of Alexandria. As the head Arab said,

“Burns all the books that disagree with the Koran!”

and when asked about books that agreed with the Koran he replied

“Burn them as well, after all we have the Koran!.”

That’s also a sign of something as well and it is being repeated today

https://www.jihadwatch.org/2015/02/islamic-state-destroying-all-books-other-than-islamic-texts

Residents say the extremists smashed the locks that had protected the biggest repository of learning in the northern Iraq town, and loaded around 2,000 books — including children’s stories, poetry, philosophy and tomes on sports, health, culture and science — into six pickup trucks. They left only Islamic texts.

The rest?

“These books promote infidelity and call for disobeying Allah. So they will be burned,”

Anon, I appreciate you playing Devil’s Advocate in spewing the right winged hate speach to show their ignorance, but sometimes I fear that this is consuming you and actually clouding your mind. My prayers to Allah and the great sky spirt are with you.

He’s an absolute bore.

Come on

Don’t you find the fact that Muslims worship a raping, murdering bandit that doubles as an extortionist who wears little girls clothes in order to receive divine revelation funny?

Now imagine him as as a dwarf, which he is references as, with a large warty growth on his back, which Muslims call the seal of the prophets, wearing a little girls pink tutu.

Isn’t that precious? Especially the scruffy beard?

and let’s not forget that large warty growths are absolute proof of being a prophet. (snicker)

and I still have that used car that Clinton did the nasty in. Still only 1 million dollars, without the use of central planners.

With them (due to the extra costs of another layer of mindless bureaucracy) the price will be 2 million.

and I find it funny that one of the Accredited Time editors took time off to delete info on the “trans” tendencies of the The Great Mo.

Wearing little girls clothing to get divine revelation

Such a precious scene.

Praying to Satan (one of Allahs many names) isn’t going to get you much.

Thank you Pbier. This article is a shining example of why the government should take over and control the publishing (propaganda) industry. Evil capitalists would never publish The Transgendered Lion and Xer Non-Binary Autistic Human Companion but the government could see to it that this potential masterful work were available to the masses to make better their dreary lives.
