The madness of political correctness is especially to be found in a whole range of gender-bending activities being promoted by radical activists and social engineers. They are intent on destroying not only marriage and family, but gender and sexuality as well. Consider some recent headlines:
-“Transsexual spared jail for own safety”
-“‘Father’ to go from birth certificates”
-“School must allow ‘transgender’ 6th grader to use girls’ bathroom: Maine human rights panel”
-“Government human rights arm pushes for third gender”
-“Obama’s State Dept. Removes Mother, Father From Passports”
-“A ten-year-old boy has been placed on a hate register for calling a fellow pupil a ‘gay boy’.”
Many more such headlines could be mentioned. There is a war going on against the very idea of gender. We are told by the sexperts and eggheads that gender is fluid and changeable. It has nothing to do with biology and everything to do with social conditioning.
Thus we are told that gender is simply a “social construct” and is changeable at will. Today if you like you can be a heterosexual. Tomorrow you can be a homosexual. The next day you can be a bisexual. The following day you can be transgendered. The list goes on and on.
Indeed, if gender is simply a human invention and can be redefined whenever and wherever, then there really is no limit to gender, to sexual combinations and permutations, and to family and relational structures. Everything is up for grabs in the brave new world of the gender deconstructionists.
Someone who knows all about this is Babette Francis. The Australia pro-family activist has been taking on these gender bender crazies for years. She has been to plenty of UN conferences where the radical feminists, homosexualists, and other social engineers have sought to ram through their manic agendas.
She has written extensively about such matters, and has just recently written a great piece about these gender militants, and she is worth quoting at length. She says, “In the beginning there was male and female. Soon there was homosexuality. Later there were lesbians, and much later gays, bisexuals, transgenders and queers. But anyone who thinks LGBTQ is the full count of contemporary sexualities is sadly out of date.
“For example, the transgendered have for some time been divided into those who are awaiting treatment, those have had hormone treatment, those who have had hormones and surgery, and those who have had hormones and surgery but are not happy and want it all reversed.
“Enter the Australian Human Rights Commission with some exciting new developments. In an extraordinary document entitled ‘Protection from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and sex and/or gender identity,’ the AHRC has come up with a further list of ‘genders’ which they require us to recognize, and on whose behalf they want our federal government to pass anti-discrimination legislation.
“To date (by the time you read this, the AHRC’s family of sexualities may have increased and multiplied) these are: transgender, trans, transsexual, intersex, androgynous, agender, cross dresser, drag king, drag queen, genderfluid, genderqueer, intergender, neutrois, pansexual, pan-gendered, third gender, third sex, sistergirl and brotherboy. (No, I don’t know what ‘neutrois’ means).
“So if we add these genders to the LGBTQ list we get 23 in all, not to mention the divisions within the transgendered group. For PR purposes, however, the ‘gendered’ community now identifies itself as LGBTQI (the ‘I’ stands for ‘intersex’.) Rather than abbreviating I think they should add all the other letters of the alphabet, then we would all feel protected and not discriminated against. Being Indian by birth and having married an Australian of Anglo-Celtic origin, I am all for diversity, but I am not going to commit to ‘neutrois’ until someone tells me what it means.”
Let me interject at this point. The Intersex condition is a legitimate category based on real chromosomal abnormalities. It is a very rare condition, but does manifest itself in such disorders as Turner’s Syndrome, Klinefelter’s Syndrome, and Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, etc.
These usually involve genetic abnormalities which are made manifest in genuine sexual confusion, as in ambiguous genitalia. This is far different from homosexuality, and must be considered quite separately. Indeed, most people in this area are not at all happy how the homosexual activists have sought to use and co-opt these people for their own cause.
But back to Francis: “Once the government passes proposed legislation, presumably businesses will be required to provide designated toilets for each gender, and Equal Opportunity Gender Identity (EOGI) units will ensure compliance with federal legislation.”
Let me take this a bit further as well. So do we end up with 23 different toilets at every public venue? Or in the name of inclusion, do we just have one big happy toilet where all 23 can come in and do their thing, and have a jolly good time in the process?
She continues, “The fact is that in international law the only binding definition of gender is contained in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which states: ‘…the term ‘gender’ refers to the two sexes, male and female, within the context of society. The term ‘gender’ does not indicate any meaning different from the aforementioned definition.’
“During negotiations, the European Union and its supporters simultaneously claimed that gender is a fluid social construct but also tried to reassure old-fashioned countries that ‘we know what the definition is.’ One delegate rebuffed the EU explanation retorting, ‘If it’s really not a problem, then why can’t we plainly state what it means [i.e. male and female]?’
“Debates about gender are perennial at the UN even though the women of the world have more urgent needs – such as a clean water supply, good roads, electricity, and maternal health care. This year’s debate gave me a feeling of deja vu as I recalled an incident at a CSW meeting in New York some years ago. The delegate from Nicaragua refused to accept any definition of ‘gender’ other than male and female. The Swedish government threatened Nicaragua with the withdrawal of aid unless Nicaragua sent home its recalcitrant delegate.
“Nicaragua is a poor country, dependent on foreign aid, so the hapless delegate was ordered home and a new delegate was sent to New York. When the debate on ‘gender’ resumed, the new Nicaraguan delegate innocently said: ‘But in my country, gender is male and female…..’, so Sweden was back to square one. This is but one example of the way wealthy countries bully third world nations into accepting their sexual fetishes.”
The grotesque and bizarre moonbattery we see in operation in both the Australian government and at the UN is indeed something to behold. If it weren’t so serious and so dangerous we could all just have a great laugh at all of it. But these bureaucrats and eggheads are unfortunately deadly serious.
It seems that long ago their minds have rotted out and their moral capacities have been rendered useless. For our tax-payer-funded fruit loops in Canberra to actually come up with 23 different genders shows that some open minds need to be immediately closed for repairs.
No wonder our nation – and world – is in such a horrendous mess with nincompoops like this running the show. Perhaps the most fitting punishment for their crimes is to lock them up in one big unisex toilet for the rest of their lives where they can celebrate their sexual diversity to their heart’s content.
