Just when I am absolutely convinced that transgender radicals have plumbed the deepest depths of absurdity, they prove me wrong. We’re now told, as Barbara Kay notes in the linked article, that rather than being observed at birth, a baby’s gender is “assigned” at birth.
I suppose that this means that even if a baby arrives with the appendage that would traditionally indicate that “It’s a boy!”, nowadays it ain’t necessarily so. A parent – or maybe we’ll need a specialist in these things – can with a straight face, declare the child is indeed a boy, but, just as plausibly that it’s a girl, or neither, or perhaps one of many dozens of other modern permutations and combinations of gender. Like maybe: “It’s a ZIE!”
Now I think a problem may arise when the child reaches 10 or 12 or 14 years old and decides otherwise. But of course, that’s 10 or 12 or 14 years down the road from now, and the gender bending, leading edge Progressivists will have moved on to the latest trendy but even more idiotic – is it possible? – fad. Or, dare we hope, we will soon reach the actual bottom and begin the long upward swim towards sanity.
In any case, you should read the excellent accompanying article (link) by Barbara Kay which goes into some of the problems that are inevitably cropping up in sports. You know, when the 6 foot 5, 300 pound, trans “woman” competing against actual women in the shot put, wins every time. Bad news for bookmakers.
We evolved, or were created, or were created by evolution, to mate heterosexually. That’s not a religious or philosophical statement, it’s just a scientific observation.The craziness needs to end, and it will only end and help begin when we become brave and honest enough to admit that Gender Identity Disorder, and Transgenderism, and same sex attractions are disorders. The truth always sets you free; lies, even lies meant to be kind never do.
Will this cold never end!
