Where did transgenderism come from?

Before the year 2000, no US state recognized same-sex marriage. By 2015, it was legal throughout the US and most of Western Europe. Before 2015 most Americans knew nothing about transgender issues. Within a year transgender issues are on the front pages of newspapers every day and schools may be forced to provide special bathrooms for trans students. The pace of change in the sexual revolution is not just rapid. It’s accelerating around the world. Why?

MercatorNet invited several scholars to answer this question, and today we begin publishing their answers.

    For a start, it should be transsexualism. One should not use gender for sex unless to avoid ambiguity.
    Subjectivism, as an aspect of Cultural Marxism, has infected almost all administration as a matter of policy.

    Where does any of it come from? Such causes have become little more than excuses, because without some injustice to rail against, the left’s influence and more importantly the power of its leaders would dwindle. They keep winning their wars, so they have to find new battles to wage to keep justifying their existence.

    Most people on the far-left and nationalists do not agree with this. Mainstream liberals and social democrats agree with this. Identity politics is what occurs when the left cannot help out people.

    That is why anti-mainstream parties are the best way for parties to be effective not this mainstream invented stuff.

    I blame the women’s suffrage movement.

    It is another child of neo-marxism/cultural marxism whose purpose is to continue the destruction of not only the traditional family but of Western civilisation.

    We all going in the gender blender, as necessitated by the changes needed for species recreation just like the Clown fish….A school of clownfish is always built into a hierarchy with a female fish at the top. When she dies, the most dominant male changes sex and takes her place.
    We got no dominant male leaders any more, so the queen is beginning to emerge to fill the vacuum, we got Justin, Notley, Wynne, and that’s just Canada. The US of A they got the Hillary, the Obama’s, Pelosi’s and many more.
    Yup, this is just a natures natural selection in action, as we are increasingly ruled by clowns.

      The problem as I see it is that certain species such as Clown fish can truly change their sex when needed and reproduce. That is never the case with people, no matter how much selective surgery a person undergoes.

        Of course, my post was an allegory, lol
