To North Americans that have kept their minds throughout 50 years of postmodernism, it’s become increasingly clear that many Californians have lost theirs. A couple of legislators in “going broke” California are proposing spending $15 million subsidizing so-called gender transitioning therapy and surgery.
Laura Perry is going to testify against the spending. About a decade ago she had a double mastectomy because she believed that she was a man trapped in a woman’s body. She thought it was going to change her life, but says she was devastated when she realized that her surgery actually hadn’t made her a man. She says that her suicidal thoughts and those of many in a similar situation, were actually worse after the so-called treatment.
Another person opposing the bill is Dr. Quentin L. Van Meter, a board-certified Pediatric Endocrinologist with 40 years of experience. He says: “Biological bedrock science proves that human beings are binary sexual beings with complementary anatomy that is intended to facilitate procreation.”
I’ve been saying the same thing, albeit slightly differently. “Human beings evolved, or were created, or were created by evolution, to mate heterosexually. That is not only the natural order of things in our species, but it is in every animal species, and even in many plant species. Sexual attraction or gender identification outside of that order, is disorder. In fact, children who believe that they’re not the gender with which they were born, are scientifically referred to as having GID, or Gender Identity Disorder. Likewise, those sexually attracted to the same sex have a sexual attraction disorder.”
That biological observation in no way suggests or excuses mistreatment or discrimination against people with those disorders. I believe that now, and I lived it nearly 60 years ago. Hanging out with a gay friend, now, is trendy. In Calgary in 1963, not so much.
Science is based on facts, and as a Calgarian, I find it embarrassing that our City Counselors are traveling that same intellectually incoherent path through the postmodern wilderness as those California legislators. They’re pursuing a nanny-state bylaw that forbids individuals from receiving counseling that might help them leave a lifestyle that they are uncomfortable with. But those same individuals, and even little children, are encouraged to receive counseling that affirms them in living a life of sexual identity or attraction disorder. Quack surgeons in the LGBT movement are performing mastectomies on little girls as young as thirteen.
The assertion by radical activists in the LGBT community, that no one ever truly leaves the LGBT lifestyle, is a lie. I’ve been to several conferences where there were many individuals who testified that they had, and I’ve had personal conversations with them. Do some research and you’ll find thousands.
Here’s a reality check. I had a friend who lived a straight life until he was in his late forties, and then came out that he had spent his life feeling like he was a female trapped in a male body. So about 15 years ago he took the hormones. Then was legally mutilated by a surgeon who assured him that he was now a woman. Two years later he confided to me it had been a horrible mistake and that henceforth he would live as what he was, a man minus his genitals.
My friend’s story should make you cry, and it should make you angry. Because Calgary counselors are now saying that what happened to my friend was acceptable, but, that if he was now in the same situation and sought counseling to help him live by his DNA, his counselor could be fined, and jailed. Pardon me for being so blunt, but you have to have stepped across the border, into insanity, to believe that that is rational.

Calgary City Counselors. Every one of them has voted positively for the bylaw banning therapy. Let’s remember to vote to positively throw them all out at the next election.
