To really understand what the gender bender activism is all about, we need to look at some standard medical terminology. Let me offer a few terms we don’t seem to use very much anymore but which are incredibly germane to all things in the trans revolution. Here are a few online definitions of some key terms:
Psychosis – noun: a severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is lost with external reality.
Delusional – adjective: characterized by or holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder.
Delusional disorder – Previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness called a “psychosis” in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined.
Delusion – noun: A delusion is a belief that is held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary.
Deranged – adjective: mad; insane. “A deranged gunman”.
Deranged – Deranged may refer to psychosis, a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a “loss of contact with reality”.
Notice that all of these words have to do with being out of touch with reality. Not too long ago such people were called psychotics and the like, and they were often put away in insane asylums and mental institutions for their own good, and to protect the general public.
There were plenty of cases like this back then. In part this was because not so long ago pretty much everyone agreed that there were objective truths and things like reality which we all need to get in sync with. Those who were clearly deranged and delusional were easily recognised and quickly dealt with.
Back in 1964 this was still certainly the case, and a book was released in that year called The Three Christs of Ypsilanti. One site describes it as follows:
[This] is a book-length psychiatric case study by Milton Rokeach, concerning his experiment on a group of three patients with paranoid schizophrenia at Ypsilanti State Hospital in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The book details the interactions of the three patients, Clyde Benson, Joseph Cassel, and Leon Gabor, who each believed himself to be Jesus Christ. Rokeach got the idea from an article in Harper’s Magazine describing two women who both believed they were the Virgin Mary. After being assigned as psychiatric hospital roommates, one of the women recovered from her delusion as a result of conversations with the roommate and was discharged. As a similar study of delusional belief systems, Rokeach brought together three men who each claimed to be Jesus Christ and confronted them with one another’s conflicting claims, while encouraging them to interact personally as a support group.
I mention all this because in all these cases, we have folks who have clearly lost contact with reality, and they are suffering some real mental disorders. And a case can be made that the whole transgender craze is something rather similar. Many are in fact saying this, and I have often cited Dr. Paul R. McHugh.
He is the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry. He has said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.
And before I go any further let me yet again distinguish the trans madness from a very rare and very different issue – genuine cases which we call Intersex. Here we find real genital ambiguity and the like. As mentioned, it is very rare, and has nothing to do with this modern transsexual revolution.
So let me look at just the most recent example of this sexual insanity in action. It comes from the UK, and I hate to say it, this particular case of complete and utter moonbattery is not being pushed by Labour or the Greens, but by the conservatives! The article, which first appeared in the Times, opens as follows:
British adults will be able to change their gender legally without a doctor’s diagnosis under government plans that will transform British society. Men will be able to identify themselves as women — and women as men — and have their birth certificates altered to record their new gender.
Ministers plan to tear up the existing rules which mean that people have to live for two years as their desired gender before they can officially change sex. A consultation on the Gender Recognition Bill, to be published in coming weeks, will also include proposals to scrap the requirement that people get a formal medical diagnosis of “gender dysphoria” before applying to switch gender.
Critics warned that allowing people to effectively “self-identify” as a member of the opposite sex, while maintaining the anatomy of their birth gender, would unleash a firestorm of legal cases over access to women-only hospital wards, prisons, lavatories, changing rooms and competitive sports.
Justine Greening, the UK minister for women and equalities, called the move to give more rights to transgender people the third great “step forward” after equality for women and the legalisation of same-sex marriage in 2013. The announcement is timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1967. Greening said ministers want to “streamline and demedicalise” gender change to make it easier for people to switch their identity legally.
In future people are expected to be required only to make a statutory declaration that they intend to live in the acquired gender until death — in line with arrangements already adopted in Ireland. The consultation will address whether those whose gender is “non-binary” should also be able to define themselves as “X” on their birth certificates.
Yes I am just as gobsmacked as you are. And can you believe that it is the Tories who are pushing this utter idiocy!? We expect the nutter loonies on the radical left to come up with this sort of delusional nonsense, but the conservative party? Really?
Presumably these social engineers will soon enough demand that children get the same “rights”. In which case it looks like the recent sensible advice offered by Matt Walsh to have doctors who push ‘transgenderism’ on children thrown into prison for child abuse won’t even be needed here. As he said in the conclusion of his piece:
A kid will believe that a fat man in red pajamas rides on a flying sleigh to bring him presents on Christmas if that’s what you tell her. She will believe that there’s a boy trapped in her girl body if that’s what you tell her. They aren’t coming up with this stuff on their own. A young boy might spout a whole bunch of fantastic nonsense about being a girl or being a triceratops or being Batman, but it is the parent, and then the doctor, who takes that nonsense and converts it into a lifestyle choice, which will then be made permanent in the form of drugs and surgery. All of this is done for the sake of the doctors who want to get paid, and the parents who want to feel very trendy and enlightened with their fancy new “transgender” kid, not for the kid himself. The kid is just a vessel for the doctors and parents to fulfill their sick ambitions and fantasies.
The parents in this case should have their children removed from the home. They should be sent to prison. The doctors ought to join them in prison. They can share a cell and experiment on each other if they want. But the kids need to be left out of it. The kids need to be protected. And if so-called conservatives in this country weren’t so completely spineless and impotent, they would be demanding that the law do exactly that. Enough is enough.
And do not forget that there are already consequences for those normal people still left who refuse to bow down to this militant lunacy. In a recent article I examined just a few cases of this. Here are some cases in abbreviated form:
-California Bill Forces Transgender Bathrooms Into Nursing Homes – March 29, 2017
-Catholic Hospital Sued by Transgender Man for Not Performing Sex Change Hysterectomy – April 28, 2017
-New law allows government to take children away if parents don’t accept kids’ ‘gender identity’ – June 5, 2017
-UK threatens to close Jewish school for not teaching 3-year-olds about transgenderism – June 28, 2017
-Police Advise People To Ask Others’ ‘Preferred Pronouns’, Publish ‘Gender-Neutral’ Pronoun Chart – June 30, 2017
There is a war going on, and our elites and our rulers have sided with the inmates of the asylum against everyone else. They want the rest of us to embrace and affirm the delusional and the deranged. It is a full-scale war on family, on children, on biology, and on reality.
As I said, not too long ago those who could not live in the real world were put away for their own good. Today our activists, elites, ‘experts,’ leaders and politicians are all doing their best to create an entire generation of psychotics whose feet are firmly planted in mid-air.
The old saying about ‘Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad,’ has now been taken up with the utmost seriousness by our PC overlords. And they are succeeding far beyond the imagination of anything those who first used this phrase could have predicted.
BTW, I have decided to identify as a can of Dr Pepper. I insist on seeing this fully and officially recognised and confirmed on my birth certificate, my passport, at all government agencies, and in fine bottle shops and supermarkets everywhere.
