That’s it, folks. That’s all she wrote. The wackiness of this culture has finally found a way to break me. I, a true optimist, have finally lost all faith and hope in the future of humanity. I think we are really close to the end of the world. Just give me a sandwich board and a megaphone so I can complete my slide into the depth of madness and bring as many people along with me for the ride as possible.
So what was the final straw, you ask? Well, it seems that a school in Melbourne, Australia has decided to embrace the full wackiness of wokeness and is allowing a teenage girl who attends the institution to identify as a cat. Yes, a cat.
According to TheBlaze, several news outlets are now reporting the school is permitting the girl to “act like a feline.” You’re probably wondering what that means. So am I. There’s no clarity on it at the moment. So, while allowing this young girl to apparently act like she’s a cat, the school is also going to let the girl cease from talking, since well, cats don’t talk.
The girl in question, who is thus far unnamed, is reportedly going to be allowed to remain “nonverbal” while she is in class, as long as her behavior isn’t disruptive to the rest of the class. How in the world is a human girl pretending to be a cat not going to be disruptive in a class full of teenagers? Can someone please explain how in the heck we got to this place?
“The school has not confirmed that one of its students has elected to identify as a cat. However, it did issue a statement, claiming that students there have manifested ‘a range of issues, from mental health, anxiety or identity issues,’” the report said.

“Our approach is always unique to the student and we will take into account professional advice and the wellbeing of the student,” the school went on to say.
The school went on to describe the young lady who now wants to forsake the ways of her own species and join the world of the fiesty feline as being “phenomenally bright.” Well, now that we’ve established the girl doesn’t think she’s a cat because she’s stupid, that leaves only one other valid option. She’s got a mental disorder in desperate need of repair.
Unfortunately, no one is likely going to help her overcome this break with reality. In fact, psychologists and psychiatrists of today seem to be totally on board with encouraging folks to engage with this psychosis. Back in the day, this sort of thing would be treated with therapy and possibly medication if needed. Not today.
According to TheBlaze, an unnamed person who is close with the girl’s family went on to say, “No one seems to have a protocol for students identifying as animals, but the approach has been that if it doesn’t disrupt the school, everyone is being supportive.” The only way to be truly supportive here is to encourage this young lady to seek mental help.
Here’s more information on this bizarre story:
The girl seems to be just one of a handful of Australian teenage girls who have recently publicly identified as a feline. The Mirror reports that four other female teens 18 hours away in Brisbane, Australia, have allegedly taken to walking on all fours and cutting holes in their clothing to accommodate a tail, though whether the girls identify as cats or foxes is unclear.
A parent at the school allegedly told reporters that one of the girls had even screamed at another for “sitting on her tail.”
Many of the outlets reporting on these stories have wondered whether these relatively isolated cases are part of a larger so-called “furry” subculture in which people adopt a “fursona” and perform the traits often associated with a particular animal. The most popular animals adopted by these “furries” include dogs, cats, foxes, lions, tigers, and wolves. However, there is no indication that the “phenomenally bright” young lady in Melbourne or the four four-legged walkers in Brisbane have associated themselves with furry subculture.
Anybody else want off this ride? I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m very much ready for Jesus to come back now. The patients are running the loony bin and I want out, out, OUT.
