The Emperor Has No Clothes But He Does Have A Sex

First, though, let us address the basic assumption of the contemporary parade: the idea that exchange of one’s sex is possible. It, like the storied Emperor, is starkly, nakedly false. Transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men. All (including Bruce Jenner) become feminized men or masculinized women, counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they “identify.” In that lies their problematic future.

When “the tumult and shouting dies,” it proves not easy nor wise to live in a counterfeit sexual garb. The most thorough follow-up of sex-reassigned people—extending over thirty years and conducted in Sweden, where the culture is strongly supportive of the transgendered—documents their lifelong mental unrest.

  1. I have a suspicion of how this whole LGBT thing will end.

    Take the lawyers who have fought to normalize SSM or the acceptance of transgenderism as fiery young Turks fresh out of law school and eager to strike a blow for “social justice”. In a number of years, they will run into young men raised by “two daddies” coming out of the woodwork with woeful tales of being abused and former transsexual survivors of suicide attempts. Seeing more money to be made, the now matured lawyers will sail off into comfortable retirement after suing the bajayzas out of the various institutions that made their last sets of clients so miserable.

    Here, I can weep. I do not see my country as the new Rome, but as the new Amorites, Hittites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, Girgashites, and Jebusites–and tremble as I pray that I may be proven wrong.
