It’s dangerous and wrong to tell all children they’re ‘gender fluid’

What started as a baffling skirmish on the wilder shores of victim culture has now turned into something more menacing

Once upon a time, ‘binary’ was a mathematical term. Now it is an insult on a par with ‘racist’, ‘sexist’ or ‘homophobic’, to be deployed as a weapon in our culture wars. The enemy on this particular battleground is anyone who maintains that there are men and there are women, and that the difference between them is fundamental.

  • 21st century witch doctoring is still witch doctoring. No amount of surgical intervention is going to make Bruce Jenner a woman.

    He might as well see a voodoo specialist and a street corner pharmacist for all the money he has wasted.

    Mental help is needed. Not mentally deranged PC wonks.

    Gastric bypass surgery is part of the problem too. Eat a low fat veggie diet and no scalpel needed. What ever happened to above all else do no harm? PC BS.

    • One day this will be regarded as a collective madness.

    • The DNA in a person’s body tells the whole story and cannot be replaced. Genotype stays no matter what the phenotype is made to look like.

      If your take on vegetarians was factual, India would not be nearly as populated as it is ( approx. 750 million, I believe). Drop the BS biases. It’ll improve your credibility.

      • There is always someone willing to find fault with the benefits of low fat veggie diet. What does India’s population have to do with it?

        Doctors take an oath to “above all else do no harm”.

        Mutilating patients for (obesity and gender identity issues) is high tech 21st century witch doctoring. Neither issue warrants expensive and risky medical intervention.

        Weight control can easily be achieved by diet alone. (The proof: Simply stop eating. Eventually weight will go down. Once you reach a desirable weight, eat only enough to manetain the proper weight. Yes I know it requires discipline. But it does not require doctors to break their Hippocratic oath. And it is a lot safer.)

        And gender identity issues will never be “cured” by medical intervention, ask Bruce Jenner.

        The medical community is guilty of way too much PC collective madness. And too many in the general population have succumbed to this madness.

    Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted!

    • They desperately want to destroy the family.

      Was that a quote from Kathleen Wynne, or Vladamir Lenin?

      I know it was Lenin, but I suspect it was from both.

      Of course Benjamin Levin may have also used it at OISE.

    Forgive me for saying this…but when one sees ISIS throwing people like that “man” in the pic and the celebrants of the Pride Parade off high buildings…I kinda think they’ve got a point. What’s that old saw about a stopped clock being right twice a day?

    • But they side with Islamists as a rule, perverse as that may seem i.e. QuAIA etc.

        Leftists have never been logical. For the past 40 years or so, general society hasn’t mocked or scorned these people (gays, lesbians, trans-sexuals) like it used to…the general society chose to close its eyes to the aberrations or celebrate it (through comedy)… I remember the risqué Three’s Company where Jack Tripper pretended he was gay (but it was okay because he really was straight) to today’s Modern Family where two men are in an openly gay relationship, with a child and the harping about gay marriage was on a lot of episodes…What has this tolerance brought to our society and wrought on our children?

    In other welcome news, there has been a discovery that a tiny obscure bit of malfunctioning DNA has slightly lifted the blackout curtain that surrounds how some facets of schizophrenia physically impact brain function.
    No doubt there are other similar DNA malfunctions to be discovered which likely lead to brain diseases that commonly present as leftist logic.

    • favill

      I hope they find the malfunctioning DNA that makes people gay. How hard would it be to take the DNA of thousands of gay men (which already probably exists from all the AIDS/HIV patients) and contrast it with hetero men and localize where the mutation occurs.

    Typical of the left to take the psychological hiccup of a few and try to turn it into a huge cause celebre to gain power. Psycho.

  • Fact: there are men and there are women, and the difference between them is fundamental.

    • k1992

      Au contraire – the difference between “men” and “women” is a matter of choice on the part of the individuals involved: there are only masculine and feminine seeming traits, and we humans (having won the genetic lottery) get to pick and choose which ones we’ll adopt and take into ourselves. So we’re blends of male and female qualities (you know, war – go figure – is feminine, bus is masculine, etc.). The world is our playground …. (/sarc off).

    I just filled out my registration forms for my coming surgery at Mt. Sinai hospital in Toronto in May. I do not want to sound that critical, since this is life-saving surgery, and the chief surgeon in charge of saving my life is great.

    But on page 1 of the forms, I had to fill out my “sex”. I had 7 options: male, female, trans (male to female), trans (female to male), indeterminate, don’t know, and refuse to answer. I am ot making this up, and it would be difficult to fathom how a person couldn’t know his or her sex. Maybe I am missing something here.

      You’re based in reality. That’s so passé these days.

    • Clink9

      Here’s hoping you’re still a male after the surgery. Mix ups have been known to occur.

    • disqusW6sf

      You’re sane.

  • Clausewitz

    Picked up the wife from her school the other day (Yes Mrs. Clause is also a teacher), and proudly displayed in the elementary school’s lobby is a poster denouncing al ism’s. The usual tripe. The one that struck me the most is their pledge to get rid of Heteronormism. We’re screwed.

      These people would like us all to live in a fuzzy, fluffy and nebulous world of indeterminacy, with no sharp edges of difficult ideas to hurt ourselves on, and with no true competition among individuals, ideas and perspectives.

      They do toss around some catchy words though, don’t they?
