As our culture continues to slide further and further into a state of deranged madness, it’s become all the more apparent that we’ve finally hit rock bottom. I sit here wondering: is this it? Have we reached the end? Has everything collapsed? Is this the part where our society wakes up from a Jack Daniel’s-induced hangover, picks itself up off the floor, staggers to the bathroom mirror and finally admits, ‘There’s something wrong with me’? These are rhetorical questions, by the way. Don’t feel obligated to answer them. Unless you just want to.
But, just when I think that things can’t get any worse, I roll out of bed, take a sip of my coffee and peruse the latest headlines. It should be noted that this is basically the worst way to start your morning. In fact, only a very mentally-disturbed human being would begin their day by consuming pages upon pages of depressing, frustrating, annoying and altogether ridiculous news. Honestly, you’d be better served by reading some Bible verses, doing a little yoga or watching cat videos on YouTube. But, I routinely subject myself to the mind numbing torture of staying up-to-speed on cultural and political news and current events because I’m psychotic.
Speaking of psychotic, it seems that there’s been an overwhelming national movement to push for so-called “transgendered” individuals to be allowed to use any public restroom that corresponds to their preferred “gender identity.” Of course, this agenda has been out there for years — I wrote about it a few days ago — but it’s been gaining much more attention in recent weeks, thanks in part to some national retail chains. As you’ve probably heard by now, Target (the second largest national retailer in the country) decided on Tuesday, in an attempt to be “inclusive," that transgender customers and employees can now use any bathroom they want, based solely on the gender with which they identify. (Never mind that in their attempt to be “inclusive,” they are excluding and ignoring the safety and privacy of women.) It’s worth noting here that “gender identity” really just means “how you feel.” In other words, if you’re a full grown man with a beard, masculine nose and forehead, a flat chest and wear traditionally masculine clothing, but you “identify” as a woman, you now have every right to stroll into the women’s bathroom at Target. You don’t have to be a woman. You don’t even have to look like a woman. You just have to identify as one. Like I said: psychotic.
Anyway, someone must have dumped a bunch of LSD or Halcion in my coffee because I later stumbled across this headline: “British city council asks kids as young as 4 to choose gender identity.”
I read this and thought, you know, maybe I’ve finally gone insane. This can’t be real. Surely I’m suffering from sort of temporary delusion. Or maybe I’m actually still asleep. But, after splashing some cold water on my face, I returned and found another article with this title: “This school is opening the first gender-neutral bathroom in Los Angeles.”
I wish I could sit here and fantasize that these stories aren’t real and that maybe, at some point in the not too distant future, we’ll all come to our senses and regain some semblance of sanity and order. But, I guess that just makes me delusional, at least for now. After all, the debate about transgenderism is over, right? Men can magically become women and women can magically become men and that’s the end of it. Headlines like the aforementioned typically result in unanimous national applause. The sycophantic media lickspittles praise these sort of policy decisions with adjectives like ‘wonderful,’ ‘beautiful,’ and ‘inspirational.’ That’s how it always goes. Finally, we’re putting high school girls at greater risk of being raped and we’re psychologically abusing little kids! Huzzah!
Now, as most of you know, I’ve analyzed and reanalyzed this “transgender” nonsense a thousand different ways. At this point, it would really just be redundant to continually lecture on the truths of biology and the falsehood of transgenderism. So, rather than rehashing the basic science of human anatomy, I’d like to speak to these two specific situations.
When progressives force their dangerous agenda upon innocent children, parents have a moral obligation to intervene.
First, I think most of us can agree that asking elementary school children to choose their “gender identity” is ridiculously absurd. My mother teaches first graders. I’m sure that if I strolled into her classroom tomorrow morning and decided to administer an identity poll, I would quickly discover that she’s been spending six hours a day with a room full of dinosaurs, wizards, superheroes, robots, mutants, aliens and fairy princesses. That’s because kids have these things called imaginations and they often pretend to be whatever or whoever they want to be. In most cases, parents and teachers are there to let children have fun with these harmless fantasies, while simultaneously providing the proper guidance so that the childish fantasies aren’t taken too far. In other words, if your kid thinks he’s a South American spider monkey, then let him pretend. But, if he tries to climb onto the roof of your house or starts flinging his poop at people in the grocery store, it might be time to intervene.
Of course, kids often pretend to be the opposite sex as well. Your daughter might play with dump trucks and Batman actions figures instead of baby dolls and Barbies. Your son might want to wear your daughter’s plastic tiara because it’s shiny and looks cool. But, it’s one thing for a little boy to pretend he’s a girl and another thing entirely for that boy’s parents to purposefully indulge such a fantasy. (Then you end up with psychologically abusive situations like this one.) A five-year-old boy has no idea what it actually means to be a girl. He has no concept of the physical and biological differences between men and women. That’s why parents must tell him about those differences and guide him through life with the proper understanding of what it means to be a boy and, eventually, a man.
Progressives don't care if women and girls are raped and assaulted, so long as the transgender narrative wins.
This brings us to the second story and second point: Hopefully by the time that boy has reached his teenage years, he will have acquired a healthy and mature view of sexuality and human anatomy. Hopefully he will have been taught to respect and honor women. Hopefully. But, as any parent with a child in high school knows, this isn’t always the case. Not every kid has been raised under sound morals and principles. Not every teenage boy can keep his raging hormones in check. Opening up high school bathrooms and locker rooms to “transgender” policies opens up the floodgates for potential rapes, sexual assaults, casual sex flings, unprotected sex and the occasional peeping Tom incident.
Somehow I doubt the majority of parents would be comfortable with risking these sort of scenarios. Of course, if teens are determined to have premarital sex, they’ll find a way to do it regardless of bathroom policies. But, where’s the logic in jeopardizing the safety of young girls or creating an environment for unprotected sex between teens — even if it’s consensual sex — all in the name of political correctness? The answer: there is no logic in it.
Progressivism’s entire “transgender” theory is built upon the notion that our outward physical appearance doesn’t necessarily have to conform to our biological gender. (Ironic considering that guys like Bruce Jenner subject themselves to multiple surgeries and cosmetic procedures to try to look like a woman.) But, now it would seem this theory is moot. I believe that we’ll soon see more and more situations involving men who look every bit like men walking into women’s bathrooms and locker rooms. I believe there will be more incidents of high schools guys dropping their pants next to your daughters during P.E. or in-between classes. And sadly, they’ll be doing it under the full protection of the law. And they’ll be doing it to the resounding applause of the liberal progressive agenda because, the truth is, that agenda is all that matters to these lunatics. The consequences are of no concern to them.
God help us all.
