A 'non-binary' person bemoans haircut issues in a taxpayer-funded BBC video

The BBC tweeted out a video of Gray Crosbie, a woman who thinks she's a man, complaining about getting a haircut.  The video went viral on Tuesday, with people offended by her whining and Brits doubly offended by having to fund her whining with their forced payments to the BBC.

As a preliminary matter, before getting to the video, Colin Wright, an evolutionary biologist at Penn State, and Emma Hilton, a developmental biologist at the University of Manchester, use actual science to demonstrate that the push from the left regarding transgenderism is "a dangerous and antiscientific trend toward the outright denial of biological sex."  Further:

In humans, as in most animals or plants, an organism's biological sex corresponds to one of two distinct types of reproductive anatomy that develop for the production of small or large sex cells — sperm and eggs, respectively — and associated biological functions in sexual reproduction. In humans, reproductive anatomy is unambiguously male or female at birth more than 99.98% of the time. The evolutionary function of these two anatomies is to aid in reproduction via the fusion of sperm and ova. No third type of sex cell exists in humans, and therefore there is no sex "spectrum" or additional sexes beyond male and female. Sex is binary.

To this I would add that there's a distinct possibility, yet to be explored, that the prevalence of women who take the Pill before becoming pregnant may change the hormone wash in which fetuses are being steeped in utero, affecting whether boys are feminized or girls masculinized.  That wouldn't change their sex, though — just their affect.  What's reasonably certain is that the rising number of "transgender" or "non-binary" people comes about primarily because the left is pushing the idea.

Girls who used to be called tomboys are now told they're boys and are medicated before they ever get the chance to outgrow what was once a phase.  And boys who play dress-up with their older sisters suddenly find themselves with a closet full of dresses and dolls.  While the left insists that sex is a social construct (it's not; it's a biological construct), the real "social construct" is the whole leftist myth about transgenderism.

The left is pushing this mythical social construct with all its might.  One can easily guess its motives.  It's probably making this push to destroy traditional societal norms; to control speech and thought; and, probably, to decouple people from their bodies, making them easier to control.

What's horrifying is how tightly involved Western governments are in this process.  The latest example comes from England.  On February 4, "BBC TheSocial" uploaded a three-minute-long video in which a woman recounts the absolute horror of having to go get her haircut when the stylists cannot tell if she's a man or a woman.  Still worse, if she says she's a woman, she gets charged more!

You have to watch the video to appreciate the way in which we're invited to empathize with Crosbie's heartbreaking travails.  The suggestion is that, emotionally, what she experiences at the hair salon is, in its own way, as bad as being a Yazidi girl whom ISIS has turned into a sex slave.

Twitter responded quickly, with people outraged by the video's tone and even more outraged by the fact that taxpayers funded this dreck:

Looked at through the prism of the BBC video, leftism is a mental illness.  When a society decides to part ways with reality, it's circling the drain.  No wonder, then, that Brits who have not yet succumbed to the crazy are trying to get the BBC off taxpayers' backs.
