There Is No Such Thing as 'Transgendered'

Conservatives win when people have the truth, because modern liberal causes are always built on lies.

When conservatives buy into the lie, we lose.  For example, gay marriage is culturally accepted, in part, because for 30 years conservatives have been unwilling, out of misplaced sympathy, to correctly describe the gay lifestyle.

Sexually active gays are essentially never monogamous, die young due to diseases they get from their promiscuous lifestyle, are depressed and despondent, are likely to use drugs, and are fixated on sex, not love.  Being a sexually active gay is worse for one's health than being a smoker.

Yet conservatives generally haven't objected to the lie that gays are just like heterosexuals.  But once one agrees to that, it's really hard to explain to low-information voters why gays don't make great parents and shouldn't be allowed to marry.  On the other hand, conservatives have been constantly pointing out the lies of the climate alarmists, and as a result, the average American couldn't care less about climate change.  Given the truth, the vast majority of people will pick the conservative position most of the time.

The latest round in liberals' assault on Judeo-Christian morality is their demented desire to normalize insanity – namely that one's sex is merely a matter of what one wants it to be.  As usual, their position is based on the totally false claim that a person's sex is not biological, but psychological.

Christians, whom liberals constantly label as "anti-science," have no problem realizing that DNA defines our biological identity but not who we are.  Yet modern liberals reject settled science and claim that someone with a woman's DNA can really be biologically male.

The reality is that the only time a man is trapped in a woman's body is before he's born.  Similarly, a man can no more will himself to be a woman than he can will himself to be Napoleon – a side-effect of this thing called reality.

Now, men and women can suffer from gender identity confusion, but while we should strive to help those who think they're something they're not, the right way to do so is not to enable their delusions.  If an Elvis impersonator suddenly declared that he was Elvis, no sane person would think that the loving response would be to start calling him The King.

Showing true love to people who identify as transgendered is helping them love who they really are, not telling them that they have to change because they're not good as they are.

Sadly, there are signs that some conservatives are buying into the liberals' false narrative.  You might have seen conservative sites that said that the Houston "anti-discrimination" law didn't pass.  This is a bit of terminology that buys into the transgender lie.  Letting biological men who simply say they think they're women into women's restrooms is not anti-discrimination; it's pro-discrimination against women.  Does the phrase "sexual harassment" ring a bell?

Similarly, conservatives use the term LGBT as though it were a valid description of biological diversity rather than a purely psychological construct, developed by psychiatrists who tend to self-identify as members of the LGBT "community."

Like all other groups, the "transgendered" are viewed by liberals in terms of how they can be used to further the expansion of liberal power and control.  If liberals really cared about the "transgendered," they'd be helping those suffering from gender identity confusion accept who they truly are.  Instead, liberals support the "transgender" cause because it's a direct repudiation of the Judeo-Christian view that men are not gods and that men and women have a biological identity they can't change.  Additionally, by supporting the "transgender" cause, liberals attack the Judeo-Christian view that sex is about more than recreation and is intended to be between a man and a woman.

Some conservatives feel bad about condemning the "transgender"  lifestyle because they think that's not compassionate. That's a result of another liberal lie: the lie that saying that a person's lifestyle isn't good for him is an attack on the person.  Liberals clearly don't believe that, since they have no problem attacking smokers' and overweight people's lifestyles.  However, it's a convenient bit of intellectual octopus ink to muddy the waters and deflect the train of thought of people who aren't very analytical.

The reality is that it's not cruel or unloving to point out the reality of the "transgendered" any more than it's uncaring to describe the disaster that is the gay lifestyle.  What kind person would purposely lie to a smoker about the health consequences of smoking?  Yet if we lie about what being "transgendered" or gay really means, we're lying to people confused about their sexuality about the consequences of their choices.

Even worse, by buying into the "transgender" lie, we're directly supporting discrimination against sane people.  When a man wants to be in a women's locker room because he claims he thinks he's a woman, one of two things is true:

  • He's lying, because he's a pervert who's pretending.  This may be more common among teens than one might think, since saying one identifies as a woman does not require one to dress or act like a woman, much less mutilate oneself.
  • He actually thinks he's something he's not, which means he's not really mentally stable.

In the former case, supporting the "transgender" cause is synonymous with supporting sexual harassment.  It's amazing that the same women who decry "micro-aggressions" by men and who say that a woman can decide days after having sex with a man that she was raped believe that making a teenage girl shower with a boy is just fine.

In the latter case, allowing a testosterone-powered boy to compete with women in sports is unfair to women.  Additionally, many young girls will be emotionally disturbed by the fact that even though this guy claims to be a gal, it's visually obvious that he isn't when he looks at them in the shower.

While liberals claim to worship at the altar of the nonexistent "privacy" clause found in the penumbra of the emanations of the Constitution, in this context, they appear to believe that young women have no right to privacy at all – unless, of course, they want to kill their unborn daughters.

Once one strips away the liberal lies, the reality is that to properly live the love and compassion that comes so naturally to most Americans, one should not follow unscientific and disproven liberal dogma that one can changes one's sex merely by willing it.  Rather, one should help people suffering from delusions about what they are to become comfortable with reality.

Once we get voters in general to realize that just as the most loving thing to do for a smoker is tell him that smoking is bad, the most loving thing to do for the "transgendered" is to point out that they can never become the other sex and that they are wonderful just the way they are.  Then we'll be able to block liberals' attempts to force acceptance of the "transgendered" on Americans.
