Sex Wars: Can’t Get No Satisfaction

May 28, 2019

If you like blues and rock, you would know of a few old classic tunes, such as Muddy Waters’ I Can’t Be Satisfied (1948), or the Rolling Stones’ (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction (1965). Both spoke about the frustration of not getting the satisfaction they were looking for. And both had sexuality as a sub-theme as well.

In case any old Muddy fans are out there, you can listen to the tune here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CakqPuwFAIc

And Stones’ fans can listen here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrIPxlFzDi0

But I digress. In our mentally and morally challenged culture, we are allowed to be dissatisfied with some things, but not with others. Our PC overlords have determined what we can run with and what we can’t run with. They have determined that we can identify as many things, but not as certain other things.

And we see this most clearly in the area of sexuality. The bottom line, according to the new gender police, is this:

-Those who are dissatisfied with the natal sex can choose to identify as the opposite sex – or anything else that their hearts desire. You are and can be whatever you want to be.
-Those who are dissatisfied with their same-sex attractions cannot be allowed to dislike this; they must remain as they are; and those who seek to offer help and counsel for such people will now be declared to be hate mongers and treated as criminals.

Let me elaborate. The new trans madness activism has declared that what you desire or want to identify as is all that matters. It has fully declared war on biology, on sexuality, on your DNA and on reality. Now anyone can just make things up as they go along.

The new sexual revolutionaries have both feet planted firmly in mid-air. There is no longer any such thing as reality or biology. We are simply whatever we want to be. To get a sense of the utter insanity of all this, consider this meme making the rounds on various radical feminist, homosexual and trans websites:

Things that don’t necessarily make you a woman:
-having breasts
-having a vagina
-menstruating
-being pregnant
-having a uterus
-going through childbirth
-having ovaries
Things that definitely make you a woman:
-identifying as a woman

Oh dear. Let’s just change things around a bit and see how all this works out:

Things that don’t necessarily make you an airplane:
-having two wings
-having a fuselage
-being able to fly
-having a means of propulsion
-being able to counter gravity
-having the ability to take off, fly, and land
-having landing gear
Things that definitely make you an airplane:
-identifying as an airplane

Hey, why not? I happen to have NONE of the things listed above, but I sure do identify as an airplane. So who wants to go for a ride with me? Who is ready to fly the friendly skies with me? And if you are hesitant, reluctant or doubtful about such a trip, you clearly are a lousy bigot and prejudiced hater.

But on the other hand, if you are someone who has same-sex attractions, and you are not satisfied with them, increasingly the Totalist Sexual State is denying you the right to seek change. You MUST remain as you are. All help is verboten.

We see this happening all over the West with the war on reparative therapy. States are making it illegal to offer any help, any support, any counsel, or any advice to those who seek such things. They forever must be dissatisfied with the way they are, because the Big Brother tyrants have decided you are born homosexual and you can never change.

This is a matter of fundamental PC doctrine that cannot be gainsaid or challenged. Homosexuals are that way from birth and must die that way – even if they want out. But see my many articles for more on this war on choice, such as: billmuehlenberg.com/2018/12/11/the-war-against-conversion-therapy/

And this: billmuehlenberg.com/2019/02/04/victorian-nero-declares-war-on-christianity/

Do you see the utter madness of all this? Any person who decides he or she wants to change their sex can do so – it is all entirely a matter of choice. It is all about your desires and whims, and what you identify as. There is no biological or genetic fixity to any of this. It is all a social construct. End of story.

However, those unhappy with same-sex attractions ARE fully and forever locked into this. It is part of who they are, biologically and in every other way. Change is impossible – or rather, change will NOT be allowed to take place. The Sexual Totalitarians have decreed it to be so, and all recalcitrants WILL be punished.

So we have 100 per cent choice when it comes to the trans revolution, and 100 per cent invariability when it comes to homosexuality. OK, right – makes perfect sense to me. So let me see if I got this straight:

-A boy thinks he would rather be a girl: No Problemo. The only problem is all those hate-filled, intolerant bigots who think this is not exactly possible or desirable.

-A man knows he dislikes his homosexual feelings, and wants help to move in the direction of heterosexual attractions: Big Problemo. And those who seek to offer him the help he is desperately looking for are evil and coercive monsters. Yep, OK.

Let me draw upon two recent articles to further make my point. The first comes from a feminist website. The author makes this rather important point, as stated in her title: “If you cannot define women, then you cannot defend them.” Exactly. She says this:

There is no such thing as living as a woman. We are women. And it is our female biology which makes us women. It is our sex. And biological sex is observable in every single cell in our bodies: it is a physical, material and biological fact. And our sex is what makes us a class. Our sex which makes us uniquely vulnerable to male violence. Our sex which means we bear the entire burden of reproductive labour. The structural oppression which women face as a class is because of their sex. And that is why all women need legal recourse to separate and sex segregated spaces.

It is simply not ethical to categorise males as females based on their subjective feelings. To do so means the female sex no longer has legal protections or legal meaning and is instead reduced to destructive, regressive gender stereotyping. If you cannot define women, then you cannot defend them.
womansplaceuk.org/2019/05/26/if-you-cannot-define-women-then-you-cannot-defend-them/

While I of course do not concur with all the feminist rhetoric here, her point about women being women is so important. If anyone can be anything they want to be at any time, then there is no point in trying to defend or protect anything.

If you are into saving the whales, but I identify as a whale, then that pretty much ruins that cause. Only by acknowledging the uniqueness of a certain group or class can we properly talk about it and seek to protect it. To claim that everything is essentially in a state of flux is to deny the existence of everything.

Finally, consider this piece which speaks of an impressive rally of 200 ex-homosexuals that just took place in Washington D.C. Here is how one report looks at the ground-breaking rally:

Ex-homosexual and ex-transgender men and women from around the country descended upon the Nation’s Capital this weekend for the Second Annual ‘Freedom March’ where they proclaimed the freedom they’ve found in abandoning homosexual and transgender practices.

“Look at this! This is Amazing! They say we don’t exist!” declared author and documentary producer M.J. Nixon, a March co-founder, as many gathered for a group picture. About 200 participated this year—a threefold increase over last year. Former transwoman Jeffrey McCall kicked off the rally on the grounds of the Washington Monument, explaining that nobody here was forced to change; “It was the power of the Holy Spirit and the grace of Jesus Christ that fell on all of us.”

One testimony after another from the racially diverse group of mostly millennials spoke about their personal conversion to Jesus and the freedom they have found from lives dominated by active homosexuality or gender dysphoria. Angel Colon, who survived the Pulse Nightclub massacre Orlando, Florida where 49 died, told his harrowing conversion story which began that night three years ago. “As I lay on the ground shot multiple times —couldn’t move— I said to the Lord, ‘I am not leaving this building dead tonight’,” recounted Colon.

“You promised me I have a purpose in life. You promised my Mom that the baby inside of her womb was special and [You] had a purpose for his life,” he said. “I am not leaving here dead, Lord; I am leaving here alive and when I do, I am going to worship you for the rest of my life.” Colon has kept his promise to God, traveling the world preaching about the freedom he has found in Jesus Christ.

These are the very real people who are basically invisible – those who are not supposed to be there. The leftist narrative says such people simply do not exist. But I can assure you they are alive and well. I know a number of these individuals. Their lives most certainly have been turned around, and they are so very thankful that the help and counsel they were looking for was available at the time.

There are so many amazing testimonies like this of lives that have been transformed. But in our hyper-sexualised PC climate, such transformation can only happen for trans folks who simply click their fingers and proclaim they are an altogether different sex.

If you want to change into something you are not and cannot be, that is just peachy. But if you want to change out of an unwanted lifestyle, that must not be allowed to happen. Such is the bizarre and sick world that we now live in. And it looks to be only getting worse.

As long as this sexual insanity reigns supreme, I for one just can’t be satisfied.

  • Excellent article Bill..I wasn’t aware of the Muddy waters song!

  • The greatest lie is that this is going to help young people and stop suicide. It is actually the spirit behind suicide and will only increase it. May God have mercy and stop it. As far as I can see the fastest job growth will be in the area of counseling, preferably Christian. Once again may God have mercy. Blessings

  • Greetings Bill, I have to confess I was reading your excellent article tonight & when I got to the part about you identifying as a plane I was laughing so hard & in fact as I’m writing this i’m still laughing. It’s so comical yet so tragical [no such word but since we’re all identifying as anything we want to be a made up word is no big deal] at the same time that we’re all being hood winked & given the middle finger. We are in the horrible situation because of “weak sheep” in the body who won’t speak out. I thank God for your articles.

    Just learned a few days ago the Progressive movement in U.S. plans to have baby boys neutered [testicles removed] right after birth & mutilate little girl babies also. I emailed 60 copies of this warning article & not one person responded back to me horrified at what I sent them. Christians are so apathetic in America they don’t respond any more to this kind of evil. But I am determined along with a few others to stop this. I’m declaring “NO!” over this atrocity & getting others to agree in prayer. Oh Lord, forgive our complacency.

  • have to update the stone song “can’t get no satisfaction, can’t get no wahmen reaction.

  • Louise can you share a copy of that article? Not all of us are apathetic

  • Bill, some people seem to believe that “we are all naturally genderfluid, but if we have somehow lost that natural state we have complete freedom, no a duty, to revert to be genderfluid. But to attempt to cease being genderfluid is a heinous crime requiring severe sanctions”. That almost sounds like ‘genderfluid’ is a religion with apostasy laws!

  • Another great article Bill. It brought tears to my eyes reading about Angel Colon and his conversion to belief in Jesus Christ and in so doing, finding his salvation. What gets me most about the insanity of transgenderism – is on the one hand, you have those bemoaning the lack of equality for females in every aspect of life and work, but on the other hand the view from the leftie lunatics, that men and women are interchangeable, would seem to negate this notion entirely. Sometimes the lefties just keep shooting themselves in the foot!

  • Good article Bill. Of course, the reason that they seek bans in reparative therapy is because it can be successful. The fact that it is possible to change orientation is extremely threatening to the homosexual lobby. Their whole movement is based on the false notion that it is an immutable trait – like skin colour or eye colour. When reparative therapy works, it proves that homosexuality is not immutable. If not immutable, it becomes a choice (if only in the sense of choosing not to be treated). If a choice, it doesn’t warrant the various legal protections that they seek – it makes homosexuality no different to any other paraphilia.

  • Satisfaction, sex and rock ‘n roll, oh yes, I succumbed. Great discussion here Bill. Growing up in the 60s I was well aware of the warnings of females ingesting hormone pills via the “pill”. Some Christian leaders said beware. Beware of the effects on mothers and following generations. I have read articles of levels of hormones detected in sewer outfalls etc. Are we now discussing the “down stream” effects of taking “pills”? Those words from the 60s ring in my ear to this day. God bless those souls that went against the tide many decades ago.

  • Over the past 40 years as a mature 82 years old man, I have seen big changes
    I became a Christian by choice in 1978 & since then have seen a big change in sexuality of both sexes, as if they needed to change what sex they were born as? Now we have the alphabet of choices LGBTQ or more. At what age do you decide or tell you children what part of the alphabet they are slotted into?
    Is it recognizable at birth, or in their teens or told what they are supposed to be as adults? I have been friends with gays who were straight for most of their lives, then swapped over, some were married men with wife & kids, some were gay as kids then changed to married men & females the same with husbands & kids then lusted after same sex partners. So help me God

  • Of course, I saw nothing at all on the national news about the Freedom March – even by supposedly conservative FoxNews. These people need exposure and media attention, but their cause is ignored by the liberal media and frowned on by conservatives, afraid of liberal and advertising backlash if they do air it.

  • There is something wrong in my life. Mr M gives me a link to a rock group. Mr M is a rock and roll fan, and one of his youngest followers is a trained classical musician. I should be gender fluid, atheistic, at 15 I should be on my 3rd abortion. However, I am a conservative Christian.

    You may consider me a freak of nature, but I think you will find I am ahead of my time.

    How so I hear you ask. Well, the New York Times puts it succinctly- The World is Turning Nationalist Populist!!! Keep in mind what the New York Times is, that being a far-left globalist propaganda publication.

    You Aussies are part of this nationalist renewal, so is India!!! We are all offspring of trumpism apparently. The bastion of globalism, Germany and France have started to crack at the foundations, France placed the poster boy of globalism, Macron, second to Le Pen it would be hard to point to anything more relevant in the demise of globalism than that. The EU is about to get an influx equivalent to your church, having an influx of noisy militant atheists. What you Aussies need to watch is the speech that Nigel Farage’s gives when he arrives at the EU in the coming weeks. What you will witness is a father telling his wayward offspring its time this foolishness was ended.

    What we need strangely is as much insanity from the left as possible. I, in my small location, need a boy to turn up to school as Jane, I need ‘Jane’ to demand to use the girl’s facilities.

    The above insanity is what is driving the upsurge in populism. Its the left’s insanity imploding under its own weight. We need as much as we can squeeze out of the left. In my School militant atheism has been driven out, it’s now something for the intellectually dishonest, yes we have more battles to fight on that front, but they are battles to be had that we win.

    The sad part is that Christianity is to play a none active part in what has to take place since its to be something of nostalgia to return to it seems, well at the moment anyway. The reason for this as far as I can see is that Christianity hasn’t identified the war that is taking place, so what is coming out of Christianity at the moment is not that which would have come out of Christianity in the 1940s. That doesn’t mean individual Christians aren’t burning, often the bridges back to what they hold dear. It is a fact; some have to be sacrificed, as none Christians. Militant atheism wasn’t driven out of my school with kind words; it was driven out like the money lenders from the temple. When that was done and only when that was done, could love and compassion return. I suspect this isn’t anything new in history, but it is new to today’s Christians perhaps. Of course, there will be a cost to the methods used to drive out the money lenders that must not fall back onto Christianity since it isn’t a Christian principle.

    What you guys need to do is to speak up for truth for the sake of truth, as that is very powerful there are many wishing to do likewise but are afraid to do so, if you are called a Nazi, do not try to defend yourself, but laugh in the face of the one delivering that nonsense. Sadly that insult is now meaningless even to those that deserve that label. The most important thing to do and this is going to go against your Christian principles is do not apologise for anything.

  • We are all so very glad that you are not gender fluid, atheistic, and on your 3rd abortion young Miss S. We thank God that instead you are a conservative Christian, and proud of it.

  • There are two, what should be, obvious facts that society needs to quickly wake up to.

    Firstly, just because animals do something or act in a certain way that does not make that thing moral. This really should be very obvious.

    Secondly, Paternalism is not the feminist’s enemy. In reality it is paternalism that will provide everything that the feminists want. It is paternalism that helps to provides safe places and increased health funding for woman and protection for women’s rights in a way that the ranting of people like Jenny Wong can never do. Having a loving fatherly attitude is what this world needs more of, not less. (Mal 4:6) Socialism just loads women up with more work on top of their requirement for reproduction and then rips the children away from their mother, preventing her from enjoying what she has labored to produce. A truly loving society, which includes paternalism, gives women the choice for what they want to do.

    The sooner society wakes up to these very fundamental truths the better.

  • A powerful rebuttal to the trans madness.

    “There are 37.2 trillion cells in your body.”
    http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/there-are-372-trillion-cells-in-your-body-4941473/

    “In humans, each cell normally contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 46. Twenty-two of these pairs, called autosomes, look the same in both males and females. The 23rd pair, the sex chromosomes, differ between males and females. Females have two copies of the X chromosome, while males have one X and one Y chromosome.”
    http://www.ghr.nlm.nih.gov/primer/basics/howmanychromosomes

    * This (37.2 trillion) objective reality will trump any subjective concept of who a person decides he/she is.
    * This objective reality will trump any amount of ‘reassignment’ surgery.

  • Terrific article, thanks Bill. You really hit your stride with this one. It’s so good to read such common sense as opposed to the rubbish being forced down our throats on TV and in the media.

  • Thanks, Bill, for putting into words what we need to be aware of, and as a result putting into our hearts what God wants us to do about it.

  • well john even Hollywood has a good quote on this from Kindergarten Cop: boy “boys have a penis and girls have a vagina”

  • unfortunately Jeff mammon speaks with a very loud voice and the church too often is soft spoken.

  • Some issues to reflect on:

    The LGBTI community have poorer mental health outcomes and have higher risk of suicidal behaviours than their peers. Typically we are told, “These health outcomes are directly related to experiences of stigma, prejudice, discrimination and abuse on the basis of being LGBTI.”
    https://lgbtihealth.org.au/statistics/

    However, specific attempts to confirm this societal discrimination hypothesis have been unsuccessful, with the alternative possibility – that these conditions may somehow be related to the psychological structure of a homosexual orientation or consequences of a homosexual lifestyle.

  • The illusion:
    Gay – and have another drink – in the Qantas Chairman’s Lounge.

    Gay pride goes before the fall: Proverbs 16:18

    The reality:
    Gay – and perpetual indulgence – at the Mardi Gras.
    Gay – and unspeakable depravities – on the dark web.
    Gay – and STDs – at the specialist’s surgery.
    Gay – and anal cancer or Aids – in the hospice.

  • I wish to object strongly to this article Bill. There is no mention of us homophobes. This is blatant discrimination on your part. Do we not exist?

    I am homophobe.
    You see the fact is I was born a homophobe. I can’t help it. It’s genetic. As far back as I can remember, I have always had a repulsion towards boys being sexually molested by sodomites. During the last decade or two, not being able to talk about this in public, made me feel very depressed and suicidal, as it has done for millions and especially the victims of sodomite rape who also have had to repress their homophobic orientation.
    I did everything possible to cure myself of this dreadful phobia . Who I wondered would deliver me from this curse of being identified as a narrow minded bigot? I had thought of attending equality and diversity training courses at Stonewall headquarters or kinky therapy at Dominic Davies’s Pink Therapy offices in Soho, to increase my homosexual potential. I had even contemplated electric shock treatment or undergo exorcism from an Anglican priest. I have gone so far as to confess in front of whole church congregations. I had even considered…. and this shows the level of my desperation … of joining the Conservative Party which is stuffed with sodomites – but to no avail. It was not until I went to a counsellor, who explained the genetic roots of my homophobia and that this was nothing which I ought to be ashamed of that I decided to come out as an “out and proud homophobe .
    The counsellor explained that I have a homophobic pedigree, that goes back to beginning of recorded history. You see it is even recognised that in the plant and animal world (there being are 8.7 million species of animals) that male and female attract one another (as do the terminals of an electrical plug and socket unit) whilst repelling those of the same sex (as do two sockets or two plugs). The numbers of animals that engage in what appear to be homosexual behaviour are minute, but they also engage in cannibalism and infanticide, so they are no example to follow of what is natural and normal.
    I believe the homophobe is genetic, a result of the evolutionary process and I don’t see why my theory should be any less credible that anyone else’s. I believe the homophobia gene probably evolved from the common banana which somehow evolved into the Groper fish and so on up the chain until the homo erectus appeared, nearly two million years ago. These then evolved into the homophobes , probably around 6000 years ago. They are the classic cave man who carried a big club and dragged women around by the hair. In time the homophobic gene developed in the Middle East resulting in polygamy from whence it spread to Europe and Henry V111 who as we know had many wives. He was a classic homophobe who introduced the Buggery Act 1533 which made buggery a capital offence. The gene was passed onto my ancestors and finally to my great grand dad, grand dad and finally my father and me. I was born like it.
    Therefore my message to all closet homophobes, wherever they are hiding is be happy. Do not be ashamed of the way God created you. We need to fight for our human rights . We are by far the greater part of the human race that demands recognition and police protection.
    Isn’t it about time that homophobia was decriminalised and we had our own homophobia pride parade? Where is the equality, diversity, inclusion, tolerance and non- discrimination?
    It’s time to stop being who someone else thinks you should be. Stop living by someone else’s code. Stop trying to fit someone else’s mould. It’s time to be confident, passionate, creative, honest, true and free. It’s time to say “No!” to self -doubt. “No” to self- censorship. It’s to be the person you are in private , out in public. The World needs us . For we are the game-changers. The boundary pushers. We challenge. Pave the way. Smash the norm and the politically correct. Sadly many people feel the need to filter their words, or hide who they are. But we say be yourself. Live freely and openly. Let’s not change who we are. Let’s not hide who we are. otherwise in a few decades we shall all be become emasculated, feminised, queer as coots and the British race will die out.
    Some People are homophobes. Get Over it!

  • Bill/all,
    One problem with the Socialists is that they seem incapable of learning the lessons of history; I came across the article at: http://www.theroadtoemmaus.org/RdLb/22SxSo/PnSx/HSx/BlshvkGyPrd.htm a few years back.
    According to the above web page, the Bolsheviks tried and failed with legalised homosexuality, yet here in the West their followers are trying again as though the above events never took place. Very much a case of “those who ignore the lessons of history will be condemned to repeat them” …

    In the past few years I came across Solzhenitsyn’s Templeton Address that you refer to on your “Killing a Culture By Killing Its History” page and it is a case of “Oh so true …”.

    Regards,
    John

  • thanks john. I always thought they felt themselves superior to us. I would imagine soon that celebrating their “love” won’t be enough we must tell them their “love” is better and nobler than ours. I wouldn’t be surprised if they would want us to tell them they are God original plan. (they probably already believe that but because of insecurities that have to be told that to reassure them.) How much longer till we reach sodom levels were they demand sex with whoever they want (we must participate in their “love”) (and will have the LEGAL RIGHT to do so. imagine being put in jail for REFUSING to have sex with gay man or fighting against being raped by a homosexual or for protecting your child from being molested by them)
