The Transgender War on Everything
War has been declared on normality, reality, biology, morality and sanity. The militant homosexual/transgender revolutionaries have unleashed a reign of terror on everyone and everything that stands in their way. And everywhere casualties are mounting up.
All this chaos, carnage and confusion is being brought upon us by the aid of scientifically bogus propaganda which has been used to fool millions, and has done untold damage, especially to our children. The claim that homosexuality is genetically based and is immutable is one of the lies being pushed.
But at the same time we are being told with utter assurance that gender is fluid, a social construct, and can be changed at will. Um, so why is it that a person can be heterosexual today, bisexual tomorrow, transgender the next day, transvestite the following day, and so on, but the homosexual condition is set in concrete and inalterable?
The propaganda of the sexual anarchists has taken hold in our culture to such an extent that we can cling to completely contradictory claims without even batting an eyelash. In my books I have debunked the various claims about homosexual determinism, and fortunately many experts are now coming out debunking the baloney of the transgender activists.
One such person is Dr. Joseph Berger. He is certainly qualified to speak on these matters: he is certified as a specialist in Psychiatry by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and is an elected Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. He is also a past Chairman of the Toronto district of the Ontario Medical Association and past President of the Ontario branch of the American Psychiatric Association.
A recent article has highlighted his very grave concerns about the transgender movement, and is worth quoting from at length:
A prominent Toronto psychiatrist has severely criticized the assumptions underlying what has been dubbed by critics as the Canadian federal government’s “bathroom bill,” that is, Bill C-279, a private member’s bill that would afford special protection to so-called “transgender” men and women.
Dr. Joseph Berger has issued a statement saying that from a medical and scientific perspective there is no such thing as a “transgendered” person, and that terms such as “gender expression” and “gender identity” used in the bill are at the very least ambiguous, and are more an emotional appeal than a statement of scientific fact.
Berger, who is a consulting psychiatrist in Toronto and whose list of credentials establishes him as an expert in the field of mental illness, stated that people who identify themselves as “transgendered” are mentally ill or simply unhappy, and pointed out that hormone therapy and surgery are not appropriate treatments for psychosis or unhappiness.
“From a scientific perspective, let me clarify what ‘transgendered’ actually means,” Dr. Berger said, adding, “I am speaking now about the scientific perspective – and not any political lobbying position that may be proposed by any group, medical or non-medical.”
“‘Transgendered’ are people who claim that they really are or wish to be people of the sex opposite to which they were born, or to which their chromosomal configuration attests,” Dr. Berger stated. “Sometimes, some of these people have claimed that they are ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’ or alternatively ‘a man trapped in a woman’s body’.”
“The medical treatment of delusions, psychosis or emotional happiness is not surgery,” Dr. Berger stated.
“On the other hand,” Dr. Berger continued, “if these people are asked to clarify exactly what they believe, that is to say do they truly believe whichever of those above propositions applies to them and they say ‘no’, then they know that such a proposition is not true, but that they ‘feel’ it, then what we are talking about scientifically, is just unhappiness, and that unhappiness is being accompanied by a wish – that leads some people into taking hormones that predominate in the other sex, and even having cosmetic surgery designed to make them ‘appear’ as if they are a person of the opposite sex.”
He explained that cosmetic surgery will not change the chromosomes of a human being in that it will not make a man become a woman, capable of menstruating, ovulating, and having children, nor will it make a woman into a man, capable of generating sperm that can unite with an egg or ovum from a woman and fertilize that egg to produce a human child.
Moreover, Dr. Berger stated that the arguments put forward by those advocating for special rights for gender confused people have no scientific value and are subjective and emotional appeals with no objective scientific basis.
“I have read the brief put forward by those advocating special rights, and I find nothing of scientific value in it,” Dr. Berger said in his statement. “Words and phrases, such as ‘the inner space,’ are used that have no objective scientific basis.”
“These are the scientific facts,” Dr. Berger said. “There seems to me to be no medical or scientific reason to grant any special rights or considerations to people who are unhappy with the sex they were born into, or to people who wish to dress in the clothes of the opposite sex.”
“The so-called ‘confusion’ about their sexuality that a teenager or adult has is purely psychological. As a psychiatrist, I see no reason for people who identify themselves in these ways to have any rights or privileges different from everyone else in Canada,” he concluded.
I encourage you to read the entire article. But another brand new piece is also worth mentioning. Matt Walsh offers us some hard-headed realism in his column, “With The ‘Transgender’ Movement, Liberalism Has Finally Descended Into Total Madness”. He writes:
It’s not debatable. It’s not a matter that can be discussed among intelligent grownups. There exists not a single morally or intellectually sound justification for this madness. I am often accused of being too harsh and too absolutist in my pronouncements on issues. Whether my gorilla in a China shop approach is always appropriate is another matter, but in this case, with this sort of thing, when dealing with the mind-numbing lunacies of “transgender” propaganda, I think every opponent should be adopting a hard-line stance. This is wrong. It’s demented. It’s evil. It’s dangerous. It’s abusive. Every argument in favor should be dismissed as the blathering nonsense it so clearly is.
Moreover, “transgenders” are men who struggle with mental illness and sexual perversion. Of all the men to permit in a girl’s locker room, one might argue that “transgenders” ought to be last on the list. Remember Lila Perry, the male “transgender” Missouri high school student who demanded, and was granted, the right to change and use the toilet with girls? A look at his own social media postings reveal that he is attracted to females (and males), and enjoys taking pictures of himself simulating explicit sexual acts. What sort of parent wouldn’t be concerned about a vulgar, hypersexual boy like that using the locker room with their daughter? What sort of government claims that a boy like that has a civil right to infringe on the privacy and security of girls?
The answers: neglectful parents and depraved, tyrannical governments.
His second point deserves to be emphasised:
2. The homosexual/transgender lobby can never be appeased.
This Illinois case is incredible considering how far the school district went to accommodate the deluded young man. Administrators first changed the pronouns on official school records to reflect whatever sex the “transgender” is pretending to be. That wasn’t enough. They allowed boys to play on girl sports teams, needlessly endangering safety and providing an unfair advantage to the team with the cross dressing male. That wasn’t enough. They let “transgenders” use the bathrooms of their choice. That wasn’t enough. They even let the boy use the girl’s locker room. The only stipulation — the only attempt they made to offer the real girls some shred of privacy and decency — was to ask the boy to change and shower behind privacy curtains, which they had specially installed for him. That wasn’t enough.
The school, like most schools in the country, bent over backwards to grant enormous and unreasonable favors to a small and demanding branch of an already tiny demographic. They made girls give up their sport’s teams, their bathrooms, and most of their privacy in the locker room, but the one single concession they asked of the boy was that he use a curtain. It still was not enough. It is never enough.
In liberalism, there is simply no demand that can be made, no requirement that can be expected, no line of distinction that can be drawn where “transgenders” and homosexuals are concerned. They must be given everything. Everything. And it’s never enough.
This is what the marriage fight was all about. Many states had already offered homosexuals an arrangement that would carry all of the same legal benefits as marriage, just without the title. But it wasn’t enough. Most homosexuals aren’t even interested in monogamous relationships, but they wanted access to marriage — marriage itself, not something close to it — because, well, just because. Because it’s never enough.
This also explains the fights over wedding cakes and photography and floral shops. Homosexuals can go basically anywhere and get a cake, or hire a photographer, or buy flowers, but if they encounter one business — just one, in a sea of other businesses — that wishes to refrain from being involved in gay “wedding” ceremonies, they must force it to comply or see that it is destroyed. It’s not enough to simply go somewhere else. It’s never enough.
Let me conclude with his final point:
5. Liberals are waging a war on reality.
Liberalism has officially severed itself from any semblance of reality, and indeed declared war upon it. If our culture cooperates; if we relent and concede that science is relative and human beings are gods who can choose their own biological makeup; if the left jumps over the shark and into the dark waters of full-fledged insanity, and many in our society take the plunge right along with it, then there will be no stopping liberalism. It will have won the culture irreversibly.
If we willingly forfeit the definition of “man” and “woman,” right after forfeiting the definition of marriage, and long after forfeiting the definition of human life, then we will have no basis left to oppose anything else liberalism tries to do. We will have given it everything, ceded its every demand, compromised on every single imaginable point, and that will be the end of it. All we’ll be able to do, then, is sit and wait for our civilization to eat itself and collapse into dust.
We either draw a line here and make a final stand for objective truth – declaring without equivocation that some things, like our sex, are real and absolute – or else we give up and play along and tell ourselves that truth never mattered all that much anyway.
I have no real confidence that, as a culture, we’ll choose truth. But if it’s ever going to happen, now’s the time. Liberals have made it clear that they intend to finally and categorically reject and outlaw reality itself. Now the question is: will the rest of us stand up and do anything about it? I hope so. But unlike liberals, I’m a realist, so I’m praying but I’m not holding my breath.

We are watching the death of the West, the Muslims don’t have these problems !
Great to hear your report from Salt Lake City and success in Houston, Praise the LORD.
It is all very simple really. What does the LORD require of us ? To do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God. He also says this cross gender stuff is an abomination which is worthy of death. Pretty clear really !
Thanks for the references, Bill. They’re pure gold… especially the words of Dr. Joseph Berger, a highly esteemed psychiatrist. And he puts it so bluntly: “The medical treatment of delusions, psychosis or emotional happiness is not surgery.”
When nursing in Private Hospitals several years ago, including one place where transgender operations were being tentatively performed, I remember similar words being spoken privately by the medical staff. Sadly, they didn’t translate their thoughts into action! Operations were performed, and in some cases the results were disastrous. One middle-aged man had surgery to make himself look female, including penile inversion, and within two years he was diagnosed with dementia, and the operation sight became gangrenous. He died soon after. And this was not an isolated case.
Indeed Bill and over at The Public Discourse an article posted yesterday demonstrates your very point referring to new moves by attorney’s from a LGBT law firm backing another case arguing that “It’s not marriage equality until same-sex parents both appear on birth certificates”. But as you say even that won’t be enough.
I find some of this extremely heartbreaking. When it drags little children into such hellish confusion it is pure evil. When so called ‘authorities’ persecute those who refuse to bow down to this lunacy we know that we are in grave times.
The following demands of the so called “two male parents” of a six year old girl are a case in point. Who will rescue that child?
Good article about a terrible subject, Bill. The trans lobbyists are going to paint themselves into a corner when for example a school may suspend a young boy for sexual harassment or similar showing his penis in the playground but support a boy who feels he is a girl from showing his penis in a girls toilet.
The Tranny Bathroom Bill in Houston Texas from the Lesbian Mayor Destroyed by the FRC and friends! Sanity prevails!
An Honorable mention goes out to Alliance Defending Freedom exposing convicted Canadian Tranny rapists who go into female bathrooms, can’t be stopped loitering in there until some vulnerable female gets……
In my work as a bouncer I witnessed this happen to an intoxicated and unconscious 18 year old birthday boy on leaving O’Malley’s Irish pub. Now put them in female toilets… No thank you!
Next stop – fight the normalization of pedophilia, or the crime of dissent against specific pedophilic acts committed by an elite minority being classified as “homosexual vilification”. Some criminals need to be vilified. Legal battles are continuing.
From FRCaction.org email mailout (sharing link doesn’t work):
We couldn’t have done it without you! Last night, residents of Houston, Texas celebrated a decisive victory for religious freedom that was over a year in the making—thanks to the prayer and financial support of friends like you.
Last year, Houston’s City Council tried to push through a radical new ordinance that would give special privileges and special rights to people based upon their sexual behavior. This harmful ordinance would have allowed a man to enter women’s restrooms and other private areas if he identifies as a woman. It also would have forced employers and private business owners to violate their religious and moral convictions regarding homosexual and transgender behavior and fined you a maximum of $5,000 if you chose to not violate your faith!
When pastors and concerned citizens in the city began to rally together to give citizens the right to vote on this dangerous “Bathroom Bill,” Mayor Annise Parker shockingly subpoenaed the sermons and other private communications of five local pastors who dared to speak out against her agenda.
But the “Houston Five” would not back down, and FRC, FRC Action, and the Faith Family Freedom Fund actively stood with them over the past year.
When the ballots were tallied on Election Day, the Bathroom Bill was defeated overwhelming by 61% of the voters.

Thank you for some common sense on this topic.
I am a British Muslim who is getting more and more confused and horrified by the seemingly unstoppable ascendancy of the LGBTQ agenda and its militant activists. When I heard media reports that there are 15,000 transgender members of the US Military who will be affected by President Trump’s ban, I could only think “has the world gone crazy?”. I’ve been googling transgender stuff and it’s impossible to find anyone who can make sense of the gender or transgender concepts. And yet it’s become the norm in the media. I’m wondering whether the transgender “logic” could also be applied to other human attributes. E.g. Race. Could there be transrace people? Born white, but feeling black. Or transheight people? Born short but feeling tall. I guess anything goes in an increasingly atheist world.
Thanks Arnold. I just wrote on the Trump ban here:
Many thanks Bill. I’ll check out your new post.
