I kinda feel like with this transgender stuff, the left just sort of just threw it out there, yelled, “You’re all bigots!” and didn’t even try to explain things. So Bradley Manning now wants to be now known as “Chelsea” and the left just immediately started screaming, “You have to accept this!” Okay, ignoring the fact about whether we have to respect the naming choices of someone who was dishonorably discharged for aiding the enemy, there’s a lot the left needs to at least try to explain here before calling us all bigots… and I suspect the reason they don’t is they have a lot of left-wing nonsense running into conflict with each other on this one.
First of all, isn’t Science! supposed to be important, and isn’t gender actually a scientific thing? Your gender is determined by which chromosomes you have, right? I mean this is basic biology. Gender is not an opinion or a religious concept; it’s an actual science thing. Don’t you have to at least have to try to explain around that one before calling us all intolerant?
Well, I looked up gender identity disorder on Wikipedia to look up myself whether they try to put any science behind this, and the best they have is one scientist saying that some men have a female structured brain — despite having the Y chromosome — and some women have a male structured brain — despite lacking a Y chromosome. Now what does this run in conflict with?
That’s right! The feminists! They say gender is a social construct, but now we have scientists saying that there are big differences between men and women brains. At least one of these groups on the left — the feminists or those saying transgender is a normal thing — are full of crap. Of course, I’m open-minded and willing to accept they’re both full of crap, but at least one of them is spouting nonsense and it seems like the left should have hashed that out before bringing this all up to us bigoted right.
And that’s not the only problem with the “Transgender stuff is normal and you have to accept it and don’t think about it!” It runs in conflict with a lot of the sexual preference stuff too. I mean, we have states banning conversion therapy because SEXUAL PREFERENCE IS PERMANENT AND CAN’T BE CHANGED! But… gender can be changed. And gender — of which we know what actual chromosomes cause it — is not a real thing or something, but homosexuality — cause still not determined — is a totally set thing that can’t be questioned. We’re supposed to pretend this all makes sense? Not only does this run in the face of science, it’s against basic logic.
Really, left, first get your crap together before yelling “Bigot!” at us. Why don’t you all go back to the drawing board, do some up-twinkles and down-twinkles votes, and then come back to us with some sort of coherent story on all this, okay?
