The Evil Insanity of Gender Identity, Part Two: Societal Madness [Video]

Gender Identity, transgenderism

The first part of this series examined the horrible sacrifice of very young children and their futures that are a tragic consequence of the newly ascendant ‘trans-rights’ movement as a so-called civil rights cause. There are other, widely-spread societal consequences which threaten to remake western culture wholesale and send us careening toward oblivion.

There are three primary areas of concern within our society that are negatively affected by ‘trans-rights’ advocates in our time. These areas are all forms of the Leftmedia, the world of competitive sports, and the monolith of both primary and secondary public education.

Transgender Propaganda Reigns in Leftmedia

The gaggle of networks and media outlets which I have chosen to call the “Leftmedia,” has been aggressively promoting the ‘trans-rights’ social program as something good or, at the worst, simply benign. In order to accomplish their goals, the Leftmedia must engage in blatant propaganda hoping that what thinking people might still exist on the Left won’t notice or if they do notice won’t care.

The following video by Steve Crowder and company highlights the false narrative coming from the Left on this issue. Maher’s attempt to feign ignorance about the facts that Dennis Prager presents seems very weak at best.

Two critical facts were presented in the video are indisputable. One is that the newest claim by the transgender community that ‘men can have periods too’ is far from a fringe view in the Leftmedia!

Crowder names media outlets such as MTV, HuffPo, The London Telegraph, and even People magazine that have featured headlines claiming that ‘men get periods too!’ In fact, as he notes, the campaign of propaganda has been so influential that the “woke” among the retail sales crowd have been actively promoting the sales of tampons and feminine pads to ‘transitioning’ persons.

However, there is a bit of sleight-of-hand involved in all of this. The advertisement for the international tampon company in the video employs this tactic by featuring a woman who is trying to change into a man and her statement that for a time during her attempts to reverse nature, she was still menstruating as a woman does.

The trickery is twofold. First of all, she was a biologically normal woman who was experiencing normal cycles that apply only to the female of the species before she began the process.

Therefore, this does not apply to the case of the opposite, a man attempting to change into a woman. They didn’t have periods before they ‘identified’ as a woman, and they won’t have periods even after hormones and surgery.

However, and this is the second part of the deceptive propaganda, the advertisement carefully arranges the video sequence to conflate both types of ‘gender identity’ claims as basically the same. Moreover, this falsehood is enforced throughout various social media avenues such as Twitter or Facebook.

Transgenderism Is Destroying Women’s Sports

transgenderismThe transgender ‘athlete’ has made a definite impact on women’s sports in recent years. Men ‘identifying’ as women have been routinely dominating women’s competitions at the state, national, and international levels. As an article in “Human Events” online states,

The victory of New Zealander Laurel Hubbard is just the latest in a growing line of instances in which transgender women are claiming the top spot in women’s sporting events. The 41-year-old dominated the Pacific Games weightlifting competition this week, winning a gold medal for her efforts – and breaking women’s records in the process.

Despite the politically correct pronoun usage, the article argues against the practice of allowing biological males to compete against females if they ‘identify’ as a female. They note that recent scientific research supports the author’s arguments.

In a paper published in the BMJ Journal of Medical Ethics, researcher Lynley Anderson and her associates Alison Heather and Taryn Knox argued that capping testosterone levels, which has been proposed as a solution to maintaining a level playing field, just won’t cut it. …The researchers also argue that the advantages transgender women have over biologically female counterparts extends well beyond testosterone levels. Namely, they have denser and larger muscles, better muscle distribution, and higher lung capacities. Males even have an advantage when it comes to the amount of oxygen they can accumulate. All this lends to greater strength, agility, dexterity, stamina, and endurance.

A prime example of this is seen in a viral YouTube video with former Olympic women’s gymnastics champions Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson reacting to men doing women’s gymnastics.

In 2017, the state of Connecticut modified the rules of high school competition to allow biological males who ‘identify’ as females to compete in women’s athletics with no other requirements. Here is one result of the new policy that should convince any rational person this is not a good idea.

Connecticut’s 2017 rule change that allowed students to compete based on gender identity has terribly harmed women’s sports. A single male transgender student now holds 10 state records which previously belonged to 10 different girls.

What is worse, female athletes who rightly object to this practice are vilified and punished by ‘trans-rights’ activists. Tennis great Martina Navratilova, a fierce defender of LGBT rights was no exception to this.

In December, Navratilova tweeted: “You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women. There must be some standards and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.” McKinnon was not pleased by this and began a tirade against Navratilova. In her Sunday Times essay, Navratilova describes this behavior as bullyish and argues that, while she feels able to take a stand, she worries that other women will be “cowed into silence or submission.”

McKinnon refers to Rachel Mckinnon, a “transgendered woman,” who recently won the Gold Medal at the World Indoor Women’s Cycling Championship. McKinnon had competed in cycling as a male until the age of 29.

In reward for her stand, Navratilova was thrown off the board of the LGBT advocacy group Athlete Ally. So much for tolerance and free speech by ‘trans-rights’ activists on the Left.

Transgender Dominance in Public Education is Dangerous

Inset.2.11.13.2019This is the most serious area of all for both the present and future of American and western society for as one goes, so goes the other. The forced progression of ‘trans-rights’ advocacy in public education is appalling and cause for grave concern.

This insidious movement is requiring access to K-12 public students to present a biologically false and unhealthy premise as a required part of the curriculum. Children as young as five years old are to be indoctrinated into advocacy for transgenderism and, as noted in part one of this series, potentially turned into sacrifices for mentally disturbed adults.

Moreover, these policies in public education force young children and teens of different biological sexes together in potentially hazardous situations, especially for young girls. One prominent example of such forcing comes from the Fairfax, County, Virginia school district, just south of Washington D.C.

The new policy holds that boys who self-identify as female can use the girls’ shower facilities, locker rooms, and bathrooms, and it was voted in without any time for public debate and adopted within weeks.

The article is from 2018 and the author notes the policy passed in 2015 and faced harsh criticism from parents when it was announced. The policy was apparently put on indefinite hold as the action to draft regulations for it has been tabled until further notice.

One of the obvious factors the Leftist advocates don’t want to mention is that this is far more than simply teaching something in a classroom. It has dangerous real-life effects on children at vulnerable stages of their sexual development and could be traumatized or worse by seeing a male ‘identifying’ as a female in the locker room environment, as evidenced by a recent incident in Pennsylvania.

Attorneys for a female Pennsylvania high school student filed a federal complaint last week alleging her privacy was violated and that she was subjected to sexual harassment when a transgender student was using the same locker room, WNEP-TV reported. …Lawyers for the student posted a video online describing what they say happened. The unnamed female student appears in the clip and said “while I was putting on my pants I heard a man’s voice, so I turned around, and he’s standing there on the opposite aisle looking at me. I glanced down and could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear and what was underneath it.” She added: “When I knew that a man was looking at me, I felt very violated and very scared — especially looking at me while I’m getting dressed.”

The school district stood behind its policy but did not offer any further comments. However, some of the criticism this young lady received on social media was disgustingly brutal.

Some observers commenting on the Facebook page for the Law Office of Andrew H. Shaw, which is handling the case, also sided with the complaining female student, others were decidedly against her and her attorneys:

…“Sounds like your client is the one who is guilty of voyeurism. WTF is she doing checking out other people’s genitals? Shameful ambulance chasers.”                            …“The student called the trans student a ‘man.’ I think we all know where this hate is coming from. From her parents. Using ‘man’ is scary! Transphobia is bigotry.”    …“F*** you transphobes.”

transphobia, gender identityAs nasty and idiotic as these statements may be, they manifest and reveal much about the attitudes from Leftist ‘trans-rights’ activists. For instance, the second comment says that the girl’s reactions are full of “hate,” and accuses her of being “transphobic” and therefore bigoted.

A phobia is an irrational fear. This student had a perfectly reasonable trepidation about a man being in the women’s locker room while she is dressing. Moreover, who is actually phobic when they state that “using [the word] ‘man’ is scary!”?

As far as being hateful goes, the third comment should dispel any illusions as to which side of this argument is projecting hate. Another reminder that the Left is always projecting their behavior to accuse their adversaries.

These things are the result of faculty lounge nonsense in higher education swiftly becoming mainstream. “Gender Study” departments in universities across the land have been teaching ‘Gender Identity’ theory as gospel for years especially since 2013 when the DSM-V changed the designation of people suffering from this mental illness from Gender Identity Disorder to Gender Dysphoria.

This movement was also given support by former President Barack Obama in 2016, through addition to current Title IX anti-discrimination law. This served to give a Presidential ‘seal of approval’ to ‘trans-rights’ advocacy and education in public schools across the land.

The Obama administration is sending out an edict today [5/13/2016] to every school district in the country, insisting they open bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers to all children, regardless of sex, or risk federal discrimination lawsuits and yanked federal funds. Schools must treat children as transgender and thus entitled to open facilities access as soon as parents say they are, not after a medical diagnosis or birth certificate change.

The goal of such an accelerated pace to inject ‘gender identity’ teaching is apparent. The Left’s ‘trans-rights’ advocates wish to normalize their disturbing practice by “reproducing” the only way they can, through recruiting children to expand their population.

The many risks to society posed by the ‘trans-rights’ movement threaten the basic fabric of civilization. Moreover, the battleground of this gender ‘identity’ war includes even more intrusive edicts than Obama’s 2016 pronouncement from various legal venues in America today.

Part three of this series will examine that phenomenon of the incremental establishment of legal status upon the transgender ‘community,’ at local, state and national levels in America, as well as why the “T” should be dropped from the LGBT acronym.

Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man? The steadfast love of God endures all the day. Your tongue plots destruction, like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit. You love evil more than good, and lying more than speaking what is right. Selah Psalm 52:1-3 [ESV]

Quote (school)

Don’t play about school. That is the main place where learning is done. There are other ways no doubt, but they are only supportive. They supplement formal education. Do not be deceived by those who do not go to school but still succeed. The truth is if you see such people there is someone around the corner who went to school and is filling the gab for them. In this digital age formal education is a must. All parents should send their children to school. They will hardly forgive you tomorrow if you don’t.” (Romilia Quotes)

Your children are amazing

“The amazing exhibition of talents by our young people is enough to allay the fears of those parents who are jittery about where their progeny would get jobs when they grow up. Of course, they will create their jobs. What parents should concern themselves with is the provision of opportunities for quality education for their offspring. If well equipped with the necessary intellectual prowess that quality learning offers, these young ones will rise to the challenges of their times.”

Romilia Quotes.

Highly educated wives

The story goes of a highly qualified woman who is married to a lowly qualified man and they are living very well.

But other similar marriages have not worked or do not work well.

The common belief is that the highly educated woman with a lowly educated or lowly placed husband, often wants to treat him shabbily especially if she is the principal bread winner for the family.

Many men thus abhor tying the nuptial knot with a woman who is higher than them be it in education or in social status.

Some questions arise:

Is it a wise decision for a man to take as wife someone who is higher than him in education?

Is it wise for a man of low social standing to marry a woman of high standing?

Should a woman look down on her husband because of her higher level of education and position?

Your take on this will be highly appreciated.
