The Trans Assault on Everything

Aug 2, 2018

The trans madness is an attack on everyone and everything. By pretending that reality and biology do not exist, everyone is impacted by this lunacy and everything is thrown up in the air. And as activist groups and leftist governments throw their full weight behind all this, it becomes even more draconian, destructive and coercive.

Just recently for example the World Health Organization declared that gender dysphoria is no longer considered to be a mental health condition. The trans militants were jubilant about this. A spokesperson for Transgender Victoria was ecstatic: “It’s big because a big, powerful organization is sending an affirming message saying being trans is part of human diversity rather than pathologizing us.”

But all this is having profound negative consequences on our young people especially. In Canada where gender bending laws are all the rage, experts are very concerned. Sex neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh said this: “Let me get this out of the way: gender is binary and not a social construct. Children should not be used as pawns to further this agenda.”

And in the UK where there have also been major legal changes in regard to gender and identity, experts are expressing their deep concerns. Consultant psychiatrist at Bristol Royal Infirmary Dr Lucy Griffin says she is ‘extremely worried’ about the long-term effects of the medications being used on young people:

We know that cross sex hormones are associated with permanent infertility. Patients are also likely to have impaired sexual function. And there are other concerns. We think that [transitioning] women are at increased risk of heart disease. We know they are at risk of male pattern baldness and abnormal fat redistribution. Children can’t vote and they can’t leave school, but we are allowing them to make decisions about their fertility and sexual function. My own feeling is I can’t see how young people’s health can be anything but harmed by these treatments.

Many other experts have shared their concerns on this, and I have quoted from many of them on these pages. Yet our activist governments are going full steam ahead in this, ramming it down everyone’s throats. Consider the latest outrage from Australia’s most far-left government, Victoria. The social engineers there just can’t get enough of the radical sex agenda, pushing everything from so-called safe schools to the entire trans agenda.

As we read in today’s press:

A major Victorian government department is promoting the first Wednesday of every month as “They Day”, asking its 10,000 employees to avoid “gendered” language and instead refer to others using neutral pronouns such as “they” or “them”. In a move criticised for pushing political correctness and identity politics under the guise of inclusiveness, the Department of Health and Human Services has issued staff with stick-on badges featuring preferred pronouns and produced a short film to highlight the issue.

In a memo emailed to staff, which has been seen by The Australian, They Day is promoted as a “new recurring calendar event” aiming to create awareness of “gendered pronouns”. “Non-binary identities are just as valid as binary gender identities,” the email says. “Names don’t always correspond to a person’s gender. There may be a gap between a person’s gender identity and your perception of the person. Saying ‘they’ is more flowing and inclusive than saying ‘he’ or ‘she’.”

An initiative of the department’s Pride Network, They Day follows the contentious release of the government’s Inclusive Language Guide in 2016 that discouraged the use of “heteronormative” terms such as “husband” and “wife”. Also aimed at public sector employees, the guide cautioned against assuming that everyone was heterosexual and recommended the use of alternative gender-neutral pronouns of “zie” and hir”.

Good grief. Take a chill pill guys. Your radical social engineering is so disgustingly obvious. Why don’t you try asking parents what they think of all this insanity, instead of just force-feeding all this madness on our helpless children?

Thankfully not everyone has applauded this madness. Dan Flynn of the Australian Christian Lobby said the video was a “shocking waste of departmental resources”. He went on to say, “It’s tragic that the Victorian public service can be used as a vehicle to encourage radical gender theory within the workforce, silencing those who believe in male and female gender.”

And it is not just sinister governments, but diabolical corporates as well which are targeting our children. Consider a few more ugly examples of this:

Netflix has released the trailer for an upcoming animated series titled Super Drags. The series, which is Netflix’s first original animation from Brazil, follows the story of three department store workers who transform into drag queens under nightfall, hoping to “combat shade and rescue the world’s glitter from the evil villains.”

“We are thrilled that our first Brazilian animation will present our audiences with the daring, scandalous and fabulous world of Super Drags!” said Chris Sanagustin, Netflix’s Director of Original International Content.

Things are so bad at Netflix with its immoral and anti-child programming that an online petition is running on this: citizengo.org/en/md/163309-help-us-stop-netflix-animated-drag-queen-series?tc=fb&tcid=49870849

And not to be outdone, we now have a trans super hero:

Supergirl is set to become the first live-action television series to include a transgender superhero. Nicole Maines, a transgender actor and activist, will join the upcoming fourth season of the Warner Brothers drama as Nia Nal, who becomes known as Dreamer. The character is described as a “soulful young transgender woman” with a “fierce drive to protect others”.

Speaking after her character was announced at Comic Con in San Diego, California, she told Variety magazine.: “It seems only fitting that we have a trans superhero for trans kids to look up to.” She added: “I want fans to take away an understanding of trans people. We can be anybody, we can be who we want, we can be superheroes – because in many ways we are.”

Everywhere we see the deliberate targeting of our vulnerable young people by the militants. War has been declared. It is time to say “enough is enough”. And it is time to reclaim the things that matter, like biology, like reality, like truth. We are living in dark days that most folks never would have imagined.

However some wise and discerning minds could in fact see all this happening. We not only have the dystopian novelists like Orwell and Huxley writing about such things long ago, but even further back than that we had great minds like Chesterton warning us of what was to come.

Nearly a century ago he was writing about what will soon be upon us. Back in August of 1926 he wrote this in a piece for The Illustrated London News:

We shall soon be in a world in which a man may be howled down for saying that two and two make four, in which furious party cries will be raised against anybody who says that cows have horns, in which people will persecute the heresy of calling a triangle a three-sided figure, and hang a man for maddening a mob with the news that grass is green.

Yep, he nailed it. We now live in such a world. If anyone today dares to say that there are only two genders, and putting on a dress does not turn a male into a female, they are treated as intolerant dinosaurs and hateful bigots. But reality has a way of digging its heels in.

As one wit put it, ‘If I had a dollar bill for every gender there is, I’d have two dollars and a bunch of counterfeits.’ Yep, we can live in make-believe land all we like, but reality cannot so easily be overthrown. But the scary thing is, while reality cannot be destroyed, we can destroy countless children as the activists go on their merry way in their attempts at social and cultural annihilation.

  • I have just about given up and am focusing on just finishing well myself. The world is a lost cause as far as I am concerned.

  • Yes John the world may well be a lost cause, but the command to be salt and light has not been rescinded yet, so we keep seeking to have an impact, as discouraging as things may be.

  • As the great social commentator Roger Waters said “Hey, teacher, leave our kids alone!”

  • I often wonder what Christians are supposed to do when faced with such lunacy in our society. In what specific ways can we have an influence for good as salt and light? Does anyone have any practical ideas?
    Does it start with stirring up the Christians in our own churches who seem unaware or unmoved by these bizarre trends? Should we be joining a political party? Should we support groups like the Australian Christian Lobby and Family Voice?
    It’s hard to have any effective influence, so what do Bill or other readers suggest we might do?

  • People often say that Same Sex Marriage didn’t lead to things like the Safe Schools program (or other manifestations of radical gender ideas) since such things were already around before Same Sex Marriage. However, while Same Sex Marriage may not be the direct cause as such of radical gender ideas, they are, I think, still part of the broad goal of deconstructing the binary-complementary nature of gender – they do I think go hand in hand and indeed fall under the same umbrella of, at least parts of, the rainbow political movement (I say at least parts of because I’m sure for many/some activists it was just about what they viewed as equality without any wider agenda).

    Same-Sex Marriage does away with marriage being an expression of the complementary nature of a male-female relationship and as the foundation of the natural family and the complementary roles a Mum and Dad bring. Radical Gender ideas go further and attack the very binary structure of gender.

    In short, in regards to the binary-complementary nature of gender, Same-Sex marriage undermines the complementary part, while radical gender theory undermines the binary part.

  • Do you know that the Obama’s and their staff have been hired at Netflix? I am not surprised it is going downhill fast.
    Why can’t kids just be kids?
    I don’t even watch TV anymore. They cannot have a show with a normal, heterosexual family. All shows must include some kind of “PC” madness.

  • The future is truly frightening. The poison of transgender activism seems to be conquering all in its path. Philosophy, our Judaeo-Christian and common sense are assaulted by maniacs. Voices of sanity? Only a deafening silence from the dear old CofE. Each one of us must plough our own furrow, I think, doing what we can and not giving in to despair. Heaven help us!
    One ray of hope I picked up were the reports from an International Conference on Gender, Sex and Education. It was held in Madrid in February of this year.
    Heartening to read of outspoken professionals and others swimming against the tide.

  • The first and simplest way we can be “salt and light” is to avoid watching TV shows that promote these ideas. While I don’t see the point in avoiding Netflix altogether (for example), if we help reduce the popularity of these shows, they won’t continue to make them. Sadly, my experience is that many who call themselves Christians have very little discernment when it comes to their viewing choices.
    Of course supporting groups like the ACL is also helpful. While they are generally reviled and hated by the general population, they do present a Christian perspective to our parliamentarians.

  • And, of course, it has to be an animated character, which is used to brainwash children, because this is the best way to create a completely false idea of reality and imprint it on young, impressionable minds. I dare say it will be done in such a way that many adults, who won’t look closely at the animation, won’t notice what is being imprinted.

    May God protect our children.

  • I am wondering if parents should join this revolution and write to schools and thank them for their inclusive policies and then add…. As a parent, my son insists he be addressed as follows. “I am john with a penis and shall be referred to as a he or him or male…. and my daughter wishes to be addressed as follows… my name is Jane and I have a vagina and shall be addressed as a she or her or female…
    Lets join the revolution and allow our children be addressed as they prefer or else we will accuse the school of being discriminatory.

  • Sadly, this was front page news, this morning, in our local newspaper:
    “Forced to share a room with transgender woman in Toronto shelter, sex abuse victim files human rights complaint. But when Hanna called the Human Rights Legal Support Centre, they said that she was the one engaged in discrimination for describing her new roommate as a ‘man’.”

    Words from Leonard Cohen’s song, “The Future”, ring true more than ever, today:

    “Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
    Won’t be nothing
    Nothing you can measure anymore
    The blizzard, the blizzard of the world
    Has crossed the threshold
    And it has overturned
    The order of the soul
    When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant…”

  • I won’t be watching Supergirl anymore. The show’s producer, Greg Berlanti, openly uses his shows to promote causes close to his heart.

  • Hi All,
    Sadly our Culture is on the path to destruction as Bill M has detailed to us over many years. Once Same Sex marriage was redefined marriage in Australia, there will be no end to the level of depravity we shall see here. The Paedophile Agenda is now very clear:-

    LOVE IS LOVE is NOW the ONLY value our society uses to evaluate whether a relationship is TRUE or FALSE, GOOD or EVIL. Therefore Paedophilia can also be twisted to be a valid RELATIONSHIP free from GUILT ,as is the case with homosexuality. The Agenda as this video addresses is well on it’s way. EVIL redefined as a type of PURE and LEGITIMATE LOVE that should be accepted.

    Watch and Weep.

    MIRJAM HEINE is sadly profoundly deceived and deceitful.1-2% of the population are Paedophiles. On Really.

    God Bless True Believers . We really need to stop this in it’s tracks
