In the early 1540’s a Spanish conquistador named Hernando de Soto led an expedition through what is now the southeastern United States and as far west as the Mississippi River. De Soto, like other early Spanish explorers in North America traveled through Native American societies which had no previous contact with Europeans or the wider world. Spanish soldiers, fresh off a centuries long war against Moorish invaders in Spain were thrust together with the inhabitants of a civilization that had developed in isolation for tens of thousands of years.
This was culture shock on an epic scale. The Spanish saw and reported on many practices they had never seen before. They found societies in which women ruled. They found chiefdoms where power was passed from uncle to nephew as opposed to from father to son. They found societies that were highly egalitarian and others where chiefs were virtually absolute rulers.
And, yet, in this vast, untouched new world, wherever they went, the Spaniards found only two genders, male and female. The exact roles each played varied somewhat from tribe to tribe, but there was no other gender to be seen. There were no transgender individuals. The multitude of genders we are now told exist naturally were nowhere to be seen.
We are told now by the “experts” and the socially aware that our division of the world into only two genders based on biological differences is arbitrary, unjust and yet another artifact of our inherently racist, oppressive, sexist Western culture. Any suggestion otherwise brands you as a bigot bathed in ignorance. How then did Native Americans, and for that matter, every other known culture on the planet, arrive at the same misguided conclusion? Living in a state of nature, blessedly free of the taint of Western civilization how did they also become polluted by this hateful ideology?
The entire doctrine of transgenderism as preached at us by the usual suspects, intent on destroying our culture and our nation, is nonsense. It would be laughable, but in reality it is no laughing matter. Just as Black Lives Matter means what it says when it declares its intent to destroy the traditional nuclear family, the proponents of transgenderism fully intend to destroy the foundations of our society and the structure on which every society in human history has been built. When you are staging a revolution, you have to break some eggs.
There is no documented biological, physical basis on which to support the idea that people can simply self-identify as one of a seemingly ever growing list of alternative genders. In fact, all of the available scientific research tells us one thing. Gender dysphoria is a psychological disorder. It has nothing to be with biology. It is most definitely not normal.
While there is not a single piece of physical, scientific evidence to support the mad theory of gender fluidity, there is a mountain of evidence to tell us that what we are dealing with are serious mental health issues that if untreated have horrifying consequences. Transgenders attempt suicide at alarming rates. The majority of transgenders have at last one co-existing mental health disorder. Almost a third of the individuals are found to have multiple personality disorder. In fact, gender dysphoria is so similar to multiple personality disorder that the two are often indistinguishable.
Many so-called transgender individuals who elect to go through hormone treatment and gender reassignment surgery discover afterward that they remain depressed and confused. Only then do they seek treatment and realize the true nature of psychological problems they are facing. By then, of course, in many respects, it is too late. An entire website, sexchangeregret.com is dedicated to these horror stories.
None of this, of course, matters to the masters of the new Democratic Party, dedicated as it is to the destruction of America as we know it. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced recently that he fully supports former Vice President Joe Biden’s plans to force schools receiving federal funding to accommodate students who want to use bathrooms, locker rooms, and play sports with students of the opposite biological sex.
“Joe Biden said that on his first day of office, he will give transgender students access to sports, bathrooms and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity in federally funded schools,” a reporter stated. “Do you think he has the ability to do this and do you agree with his decision?”
“I agree with the decision and I know he’ll check things out thoroughly, legally,” Schumer responded.
That’s right. The man who is currently only a few court cases away from becoming our next President intends to mandate that the entire nation embrace the mad theory that you are whatever gender you feel like you are. Johnny may be over six feet tall and weigh 180 pounds, but if he decides he “feels like a woman,” he will be showering next to your teenage daughter, playing on the girls’ basketball team and walking in and out of the girl’s bathroom whenever he feels the urge.
And, if you have a problem with that, if that strikes you as mad, an infringement on your daughter’s rights and an invitation to sexual assault, you will be the problem. It won’t be Johnny who is disciplined, counseled, sent for evaluation or suspended. It will be your daughter who will be punished and you who will be silenced.
You may draw some consolation from the thought that the Congress will temper these moves. Surely, you may think somewhere along the way this madness will be blocked. You will be wrong.
Biden has no intention of attempting to pass legislation to mandate his overthrow of our entire social structure. How quaint. He has promised to use his “executive authority” to immediately implement the changes described above.
And this is only the beginning. In October, during a town hall event, Biden said he supports young children choosing to “transition.” “The idea that an 8-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides, you know, ‘I decided I want to be transgender. That’s what I think I’d like to be. It would make my life a lot easier.’ There should be zero discrimination,” Biden said.
You may think you can control that decision. You may assume such ideas will never directly impact you. Again, you will be wrong.
When your 8-year old decides to announce she is transgender and school authorities become involved, it will not be you who will make the call on what happens. You may dismiss the comments as those of a young child for whom reality and make-believe mix together regularly. You may think you know your daughter better than a counselor who sees her a few minutes a day.
It won’t matter. If you stand in the way, it won’t be the school that faces the consequences. It won’t be a social worker playing God who feels the force of the law. It will be you, and your child will suffer the consequences.
This is the brave new world. This is the juncture at which we have arrived. We have allowed self-appointed experts and radical proponents of social change to seize control of our schools and our government institutions. We are about the pay the price. This the dangerous nonsense of transgenderism, and it is coming to a school near you very soon.
