Part 1 of 2.
Despite man’s incredible progress, inventiveness and advancement in all aspects of life, an attempt at trying to change undeniable facts of the natural universe should never be allowed to succeed and gain any meaningful traction.
Discussions regarding biological fact seem to start from an insane premise that man can change the laws of nature and if you don’t believe this you are arrogant, bigoted, prejudiced, sexist and a whole host more insults, with an attempt of shaming you into compliance. The looney fringe believe if they insult and shame you enough times, you will eventually cower away, close your mouth, deny natural laws and jump on their ridiculous bandwagon. On the issue of redefining the sexes there can literally be no argument as the undeniable fact that women have 2 X chromosomes and men an XY is as certain as day follows night – no-one could ever deny or refute this.
In mid-2017, USA Today released a story with the headline “States are starting to recognize a third gender: Non-binary”.
One of the most startling pieces of the article was the opening paragraph:
“America has slowly begun to acknowledge that for many people, gender is not easily defined as either male or female. And state governments are moving to recognize that fact by giving residents the option of a third gender identifier, neither exclusively male or female.”
Really? Seriously? America as a nation are really buying into all this total bullshit??
This thought process seems to have gained traction when Jamie Shupe, the first person to insanely be allowed to be identified, not as a man or a woman, but as gender neutral (and it can be proudly displayed on all official documents as “X”.) The acceptance of the X classification by some foolish government/state committee/individual also needs to be condemned in no uncertain terms. A bureaucrat, with probably substandard education and no understanding of actual laws of biology, agrees to entertain this ridiculous notion, and with a masterstroke of genius, pass a law/regulation supporting it. (The issue of public servants utilizing their positions as a pulpit for propagating insane ideas will be a topic for a later article.)
One was hoping that this would just be a storm in a teacup and would find itself on the heap of things that failed spectacularly, but optimism that this lunacy would end as soon as it started has to be dampened when you read this and this and this.
The rest of the world are also now grappling with this pure insanity too, where once calm and tranquil regions are now too having to deal with gender fluidity and the madness of trying to influence our kids with political correctness. At least there are still some thoughtful opinions on why trying to influence the gender of kids is not wise.
Can there possibly be any reasonable alternative argument? Not much and certainly not enough reason to try and reclassify biological systems.
Excessively high suicide rates amongst the X’s is usually the most vocal argument and the narrative pushed by agitators and journalists who always seem to either misunderstand the data or deliberately fudge the numbers to suit their own inherent biases.
Apparently these groups make up less than 0.6% of the adult population, so it is mind boggling to know why such a big deal is made of this particular group when there are many other social misfits that do not agitate to have their designation changed.
Eventually someone with some cognitive ability delved into the data and critically evaluated it. The truth is, that this group are no more at risk than any other group.
Suicide itself results from mental illness, period. Sure, some are going to say social circumstances result in a good proportion of suicides, but the undeniable facts are, that if there wasn’t some aberrant cognitive thought impairment, suicide wouldn’t result. And this is borne out by the the actual definition of mental illness. According to the American Psychiatric Association:
Mental illnesses are health conditions involving changes in thinking, emotion or behavior (or a combination of these). Mental illnesses are associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities.
Mental illness is common. In a given year:
- nearly one in five (19 percent) U.S. adults experience some form of mental illness
- one in 24 (4.1 percent) has a serious mental illness
- one in 12 (8.5 percent) has a substance use disorder*
Mental illness is treatable. The vast majority of individuals with mental illness continue to function in their daily lives.
Given the above, gender dysphoria is just another mental issue and should be treated exactly the same way all mental disorders are – with medication and/or therapy. No one can realistically argue that a biological male or female is anything but that and if they “feel” they aren’t, then they need the help of the psychiatric community. Normal people should not have to be shamed and brow beaten into their false social narrative.
Does this all make any real difference? Part 2 will give a couple of brief examples of why this insanity needs to be stopped before it really takes hold.
