“Let’s take it a step further. The ‘gender’ phenomenon is, in the larger sense, an artificial and anti-theist-tainted social construct. It’s an overt act of fist-shaking rebellion against the laws of nature and nature’s God.” from “ ‘Transgender’ conditioning is ‘Child Abuse’ ” by J Matt Barber
Let me be VERY clear where I stand on Transgenders in the military: Trannie Schmannnie. If you can’t tell if you’re a boy or a girl how do you tell which end of a gun to load and which end to point!?
Let me also be clear that I don’t arbitrarily hate trannies. Mostly I feel sorry for them. Too many of them have been unscrupulously inundated with erroneous sexual information (some at very young ages) to promote a devisive, victim-oriented mind set with the goal of alienating them from others more “normal”.
Still the U.S. Armed Forces are NOT a proving ground for artsy-craftsy, Left Wing, social engineering experiments, aberrations, and/or troop diversity.
THE ARMED FORCES ARE MEANT TO BE KILLING UNITS, VICTORY FIRST, AMERICA FIRST. Maybe some of you don’t like that but it would serve us all well to understand that.
I know that’s gotten lost of late what with matching gun-metal pearls, male officer weddings, hijabs, … But the Armed Forces are entrusted with a sacred duty to our God, our America, our Constitution, and to our families and friends. The World rests in their hands. No less.
And they have no need of political correctness tying them to the mast, immobilizing their command decisions.
I am a USAF vet from back in the Viet Nam era. I have an unabridged Random House Dictionary from back then (c) 1971. It does list Transvestite: “Practice of wearing clothing appropriate to the opposite sex, often as a manifestation of homosexuality.” I mention this only to point out that this unabridged dictionary, one of the very best at the time, does NOT list “Transgender”.
Well, what could that mean? Let me tell you what that means. I lived in SF from 1972 to 1997, that’s a quarter century. I knew transvestites, drag queens, queers, cross dressers, and a few things less deserving of print. But I never once heard the word transgender. NOT ONCE.
It wasn’t until the early 2000s that that word popped up overnight in the main stream media. And the definition has been cleverly and purposefully blurred. It now includes some people actively working to physically change their sex, to others who feel today like a girl and tomorrow like a boy…
There is a vast ocean of difference between these two. One involves permanent mutilating surgery, the other transient confusion. One has to be in error. (But does anyone care?)
Finally, some real medical people are tackling this problem. The article Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is ‘Mental Disorder;’ Sex Change ‘Biologically Impossible’ from June 2015 states some brutal facts:
“Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a ‘mental disorder’ that merits treatment, that sex change is ‘biologically impossible,’ and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.
The article further states that “the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% ‘spontaneously lost those feelings.’” [emphasis added.]
[Johns Hopkins was a pioneer in sex reconstructive surgery but they no longer perform this.]
Another serious article is even stronger: American College of Pediatricians: ‘Transgender’ Conditioning is ‘Child Abuse’
“For those tethered to biological reality, the self-evident truth that, prior to birth, people develop either “XY” or “XX” genetic markers and, as such, are objectively, and shall forever remain, either male or female, is as plain as blue is blue or pink is pink.
“Indeed, notwithstanding the politically driven ‘LGBT’ agenda that pretends otherwise, those who suffer with ‘gender dysphoria’ disorder will stay, as born, either male or female, whether or not they play dress up, sterilize themselves and destroy healthy reproductive organs…”
[And no matter what the LGBTQ factions tell you, there is no more a Gay Community than there is a White Community or a Black Community. Those are all convenient constructs of the Left with essentially no basis in reality.]
This ‘Child Abuse’ article cites 8 various considerations, a couple of which I will include here.
- Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder.
“The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species,” they observe. “This principle is self-evident.”
- No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.
“Let’s take it a step further. The ‘gender’ phenomenon is, in the larger sense, an artificial and anti-theist-tainted social construct. It’s an overt act of fist-shaking rebellion against the laws of nature and nature’s God.”
- According to the DSM-V, as many as 98 percent of gender confused boys and 88 percent of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.
“And so what do we call a physician or a parent who takes a gender-confused boy, with a 98 percent chance of full recovery, and severely and irrevocably harms that child with dangerous hormones or sterilization surgery?
“We should be calling them what they are: criminals.
“To its credit, the ACPeds report goes on to identify this so-called ‘gender ideology’ for exactly what it is: ‘Child abuse.'”
You get the idea. We have a societally created social stigma problem that can be manipulated for nefarious results, cruel social engineering, which is disabling to certain young people who are led unknowingly by creepy people down a path of confusion that we used to simply call “growing up”.
Little girls instinctively understood that boys got to do more things, got to get away with more things, got the more interesting “chores”.
Little boys understood that they’d get a bigger whooping than a girl, that she’d get more attention on her birthday, that her “chores” were often a lot safer than his.
These awarenesses were sometimes called “jealousy”.
THIS WAS NOT SEXUAL CONFUSION! IT WAS SEXUAL AWARENESS! IT WAS PART OF SEEING WHAT WAS GOING ON AROUND YOU AS YOU MATURED THROUGH THE YEARS. It was/is a good thing. It’s called Growing Up.
But the liberals can taint the most wholesome of events, occurrences, structures, values. And growing up is no exception. They have struck yet once again with this transgender garbage, encouraging overly willing teachers, dominating parents, administrators, and medical personnel to all join in on the impetus to confuse our young people, diminish our family structure, and demean our moral values, all the while filling their seedy coffers with money. ENOUGH ALREADY!
Congratulations to President Trump and his generals and admirals for taking a principled, studied, strong stand on the readiness imperative of our military. There is plenty of room in the college Safe Spaces for the transgendered. The military of the United States does not require their service (though may God bless them as they wend and wander through life on their chosen paths).
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL LAND OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE.
E PLURIBUS TRUMP.
