My brand new book on homosexual activism is already out of date. I need to do a revised edition. The book is fresh from the printers only two days ago, but already it needs a major revision. You see, two days is plenty of time for the radical activists to offer us more madness.
Three new examples have all appeared in the past two days, and they would nicely fit in with the many dozens of other cases I highlight in my book, Strained Relations. They all involve the radical sexual libertarians seeking to destroy family, destroy society, and destroy sanity.
And not surprisingly, all three involve the homosexual mafia who are hell-bent on forcing their radical agenda on everyone else, whether they like it or not. And many of these once again involve a wholesale attack on our children. Consider the first story out of the UK:
“‘Racists’ aged THREE: Toddlers among thousands of children accused of bigotry after name-calling,” is how the headline goes. The story follows: “Teachers are branding thousands of children racist or homophobic following playground squabbles.
“More than 20,000 pupils aged 11 or younger were last year put on record for so-called hate crimes such as using the word ‘gaylord’. Some of them are even from nursery schools where children are no older than three. One youngster was accused of being racist for calling a boy ‘broccoli head’ and another was said to be homophobic for telling a teacher ‘this work is gay’.
“Two primary school children were reported for homophobia after quarrelling over a rubber and calling each other ‘gay’ and ‘lesbian’. Those youngsters reported for petty offences at nursery classes included four in the London borough of Tower Hamlets and three in Hertfordshire. Schools are forced to report the language to education authorities, which keep a register of incidents.
“Although the Department for Education recently pledged to cut unnecessary red tape and bureaucracy, it has given no guidance on such ‘offences’. In total, 34,000 nursery, primary and secondary pupils were effectively classed as bigots because of anti-bullying rules. The school can keep the pupil’s name and ‘crime’ on file. The record can be passed from primaries to secondaries or when a pupil moves between schools. And if schools are asked for a pupil reference by a future employer or a university, the record could be used as the basis for it, meaning the pettiest of incidents has the potential to blight a child for life.”
What can one say about such utter and complete madness? It seems that all of our asylums have been emptied and the former inmates now have cushy jobs as government bureaucrats. But such is how bloated governments being led by the nose by homosexual activists operate.
The next example involves Australia, and is no better. Here is how the story goes: “Australian passports will now have three gender options — male, female and indeterminate — under new guidelines to remove discrimination against transgender and intersex people, the government said Thursday.
“Intersex people, who are biologically not entirely male or female, will be able to list their gender on passports as ‘X.’ Transgender people, whose perception of their own sex is at odds with their biology, will be able to pick whether they are male or female if their choice is supported by a doctor’s statement. Transgender people cannot pick ‘X.’
“Previously, gender was a choice of only male or female, and people were not allowed to change their gender on their passport without having had a sex-change operation. The U.S. dropped the surgery prerequisite for transgender people’s passports last year. Any country that complies with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s specifications for machine-readable passports can choose to introduce a gender ‘X’.”
Hey, there’s that word “discrimination” again. It seems everyone in the world nowadays is somehow being discriminated against, so the heavy hand of the law has to step in to make radical social engineering adjustments. We have bloated bureaucracies with public servants who have nothing better to do than further destroy life as we know it.
If people want to play gender-bender games, that is their business, but government should not rewrite the biology textbooks to accommodate such folks. Transgenderism is not the business of government, and it should not become an excuse to overturn commonsense and reality.
There are not three or twenty genders, but only two. The transgender folks make up only a minuscule minority to begin with, but that doesn’t stop engineering-mad bureaucrats from catering to them. Of course an even far tinier group, the Intersex folk, is another matter.
As I write in my new book, this ever so tiny group of individuals is not to be dumped in with the homosexual activists. As I state, “It must be noted that a very small percentage of people are in their own category, and are quite different. I refer to the intersex condition, where genetic abnormalities results in sexual confusion. There can be ambiguous genitalia, chromosomal imbalances – eg, having an extra sex chromosome – and so on. These can be found in conditions such as Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, Turner Syndrome, Klinefelter’s Syndrome, and Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome.”
But this tiny handful of individuals should be dealt with in other ways, not in such heavy-handed and broad-brush strokes. And what will happen next? How many other genders will we offer official government recognition of? By one estimate, 23! I kid you not! But I discuss this elsewhere: billmuehlenberg.com/2011/03/29/gender-bender-moonbattery/
Consider the third case of sexual insanity. Yet another Hollywood celeb has pontificated on social issues, actually expecting that we should all drop everything and take notice of what she said. Glenn Close is impatient with those of us who think there are males and females, and that they are different.
One news outlet says this: “Discussing her gender-bending role in the new movie Albert Nobbs, American actress Glenn Close has said that gender “doesn’t matter” and all those too outdated to reject natural gender and gender roles will just have to ‘die off.’
Albert Nobbs, screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, features Close as a cross-dressing woman working as a butler in 19th-century Ireland. The idea behind the film, a pet project of Close’s for fifteen years, is to help scuttle conventional ideas of gender – or any idea of gender. ‘Gender is irrelevant. It basically should be irrelevant,’ Close told the National Post.
The actress says she hopes her performance as a woman passing as a convincing-looking man ‘engenders a lot of conversation, because I believe there are a lot of people who put on faces. I am not gay … but I feel very comfortable in the company of everybody, not just gay people. But I honestly believe that gay rights of [sic] the rights of people with mental illness are the last big issue,’ she said.
“Close married longtime boyfriend David Shaw in February 2006 after two previous marriages. Partially paraphrasing Close, the Post concludes that ‘Some people will change their point of view, and those who are either too old, or too blinkered, to accept the beauty of difference will just have to “die off”.’”
Hey, that sounds like a veiled threat to me. Maybe she should just come out and tell us what she is really thinking: “Any of you idiots out there who still think men and women are different, and are so by biological and genetic hardwiring, should be put out of your misery. We don’t want you bigots to stand in our way.” Thanks Glenn, we are all so grateful that activist actresses such as you are keeping us on the straight and narrow here – no pun intended.
There you have it folks: three more prime examples of why the West is going to hell in a hand basket. With leaders and elites like these working overtime to demolish nature, destroy families, and cripple societies, no wonder we are in such a mess. And all this madness in just two days! Yikes!
