Questioning or attempting to alter your child’s gender because you find it politically advantageous or socially admirable is nothing short of child abuse. Such contemptible behavior is a clear example of psychological conditioning disguised as compassionate, progressive parenting. Whether a child is ultimately straight or gay is of little personal interest as long as it happens on their own accord. Fifty years ago, let alone in the 1980’s or 90’s, children rarely displayed gender confusion because they were not bombarded with imagery and activism that both condoned and encouraged transgenderism. Feminism or masculinity, no matter how prevalent or uncommon, were present in both sexes and sexual orientations. These imperfect realities did not require public interventions, physical makeovers or notice of gender justification in grade school.
For the record I do not deny a very minute percentage of the adult population consciously seeks to change their natural born gender. However, their desire is more of a psychosomatic manifestation, an internalized response based upon how they are perceived, revered or rejected, by their peers. And yes, because no one is born instinctively hating or questioning their sex, some possess an insatiable need for attention. Either way, it does not change the fact there are only two genetically encoded genders and I don’t need to watch a man who identifies as a woman attempt to breastfeed his lover’s adopted son to comprehend the disturbing consequences of indulging such destructive fantasies. If “gender” is nothing more than a fluid state of mind, nature’s neutral role playing game, reality must be an erasable blackboard of pointless regret. Unless our androgynous spirit animals are romping free from the confines of guilt and bathroom privacy, common sense shouldn’t require a paper cut on your God-given genitalia to realize the “sex” listed on your birth certificate isn’t an undeclared prostitute paid with monopoly money and a complimentary pair of sexist pink or blue booties. Predators love to stalk or “dress” their prey and impressionable children should never be the nameless guinea pigs of culture warriors’ reckless “identity manipulation” campaign designed solely to validate their chosen lifestyle.
