Wearing a Hijab in the United States Is Just as Ridiculous as Flying the Confederate Flag

The hijab has always been a way to control women.

Most proponents of the Confederate Flag will tell you that it symbolizes “state’s rights.” To some degree, they’re correct. The biggest reason (among many reasons) that the United States Civil War began was the secession of the southern states from the Union. There was a lot of northern propaganda floating around about how much good ol’ Honest Abe ‘Incoln hated slavery, but these claims are entirely false as Lincoln himself was a racist (a real one, not the new definition of racist: “disagrees with Black Lives Matter.”) It’s disputed whether or not he owned slaves himself, but it is certain that many services provided to him and his cabinet in the White House were done by slaves. There’s also this little gem of a quote:

“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races.” -Abraham Lincoln

If we dig a little farther into the “state’s rights” claim, we can infer that the Confederacy certainly did want to protect state’s rights… to own slaves. Now, if you’ve read the Mad Indies before, you know that I’m no fan of identity politics or liberal outrage. Back in the day when racism was a real issue, mostly only blacks and various other minorities were slaves. Because of this, the defense of American slavery is specifically racist. If the main purpose of the Confederacy was to protect the state’s rights to own slaves, then absent any serious mental gymnastics, the Confederacy and its flag are racist. This doesn’t mean that everyone sporting Confederate flag gear are vile racists; just that the flag itself largely represents a defense of slavery and racism.

How very progressive

Some of the more recent aggressors against women in the modern world are the Taliban and Islamic State. These vile hoards of indoctrinated mythology lovers have imposed a number of inequalities on women, including a mandate to wear a burqa in public at all times.

From a Wikipedia entry about the Taliban treatment of women:

“The stated aim of the Taliban, in respect to their contentious and non-contentious treatment of women, was to create a “secure environment where the chastity and dignity of women may once again be sacrosanct””

“Afghan women were forced to wear the burqa at all times in public, because, according to one Taliban spokesman, “the face of a woman is a source of corruption” for men not related to them.”

“In a systematic segregation sometimes referred to as gender apartheid, women were not allowed to work, they were not allowed to be educated after the age of eight, and until then were permitted only to study the Qur’an.”

niqab-burqa-hijab

Just as many Americans have made non-racist cases for flying the Confederate flag, many Muslims and feminists have made non-sexist cases for a woman wearing a hijab. The most reasonable argument is that hijabs can actually be quite fashionable.

iu
A slight display of hair makes this headscarf about fashion rather than oppression.

Really, there’s probably a better case for the hijab than there is for the Confederate flag, as long as the hijab is being worn for secular reasons. The problem is that the conversation is usually surrounding women’s rights or Muslims’ rights or some other virtue-signaling nonsense. Firstly, to say that respecting the hijab is about “religious freedom” or feminism or some other claim is to argue a complete straw-man fallacyAll real libertarian Americans will support a person’s right to wear whatever they want. I passionately believe that Muslims should have the right to attend their mosques and wear whatever they want, in the exact same way that I believe Americans should have the right to fly the Confederate flag. In terms of freedom and liberty, whether I find those people to be ridiculous is besides the point- they have the right to wear what they want, fly whatever flag they want, and attend any religious organizations that they want without fear of prosecution. That’s America.

But- The men who invented the Confederacy in order to control slaves are no worse than the pedophiles and rapists who invented Islam to control women. To sport any representation of these vile beliefs is to support oppression and control over the powerless- whether intentionally or not. As for those who may believe I am being racist or insensitive by criticizing Islam and women who wear its adornments, feel free to read my article about how Islam is a religion, not a race, and should be criticized until it is dead.

Wear Whatever You Want This Halloween

Liberals getting offended by otherwise fairly uncreative costumes is part of the treat

Boo!

From Wikipedia:

Cultural appropriation is the adoption of the elements of one culture by members of another culture. Cultural appropriation, often framed as cultural misappropriation, is sometimes portrayed as harmful and is claimed to be a violation of the collective intellectual property rights of the originating culture.

Isn’t it funny how the same people who hate capitalism and private ownership believe that sharing cultural ideas is offensive and unacceptable? 

For the past few halloweens, liberals and feminists have been complaining about the halloween costumes that people choose to wear for fun one day of the year. Whether it’s a secular girl sporting a head scarf, a boy wearing fake gold chains, or even a white guy with a banjo, it’s terribly offensive and you should have gone as a gender studies major, or something.

At some point, we all start to have trouble believing that the type of social justice present in 2017 is a natural progression from ending slavery or the civil rights era. Is stopping white girls from wearing burqas on Halloween really the next step in liberty and justice for all?

In reality, much of the Left suffers from the same dogmatic fallacies that the religious right does. Just as one may be blindly Christian or patriotic and support any and all actions taken by our military and police, many millennial Americans blindly obey and follow the arbitrary list of offensive things invented by expert media distractors like CNN or the Washington Post. This is to divert attention from a cohesive and united effort against the oligarchy and replace it with identity politics and division.

Never before has something as mundane as a Native American Halloween costume been considered offensive, even by Native Americans. Only recently were costumes mimicking the traditions of various cultures capriciously determined to be unacceptable. Seriously, there will be feminist protests against Halloween on college campuses around the nation this 31st. If it wasn’t so disastrous to have the only political side that cares about the environment making idiots of themselves, it would almost be hilarious.

highschoolborderpatrol
I bet he’s not terribly offended by the situation.

Isn’t it funny how the same people who are out to destroy “privilege” want white Americans to know that only non-whites have the privilege to wear certain cultural costumes?

Kudos to the above posters for including a PSA not to dress up as a white hillbilly. Albeit in reality, mostly just white males will be reprimanded for wearing cultural costumes. Enemy No1 of the authoritarian Left are white men, seconded only by white women. If you had the audacity to be born with light skin, be careful this Halloween. The feminists are out to shame you and call your employers with photos of your Mexican fiesta mariachi poncho outfit as hard evidence of your undying support for Hitler and slavery.

iu
Nazi dog

Those who call for the unnecessary harassment of trick-or-treaters are doing something far more offensive than what they claim to be fighting against. Just remember that “women should be able to wear whatever they want” without being shamed or called out- unless feminists deem it unacceptable.

Trick or treat, y’all.

Kneeling for the Anthem Doesn’t Make You a Traitor; It Just Makes You Look Stupid

Seriously, all you’re doing is pissing off patriots and making your side look immature

Look, minorities face certain problems more frequently than whites in the United States. This is statistically true, and assumably true. The concept that there are zero racist cops, zero racist business owners, or zero racist whatevers is completely false and a fabrication designed to advance some ideal worldview held by the non-racist right. The fact of the matter is that as an African American, Mexican American, or any American with non-white characteristics, one will find themselves at the receiving end of discomfort and discrimination from time to time. This reportedly ranges anywhere from pedestrians crossing the street to avoid walking by a minority all the way up to police shootings disproportionately involving non-whites.

We’ve recently seen the trend of kneeling during the national anthem popularized by NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

Now, aside from the equally childish kicking and screaming coming from Trump and most conservatives, there are some very valid issues with Kaepernick’s statement.

  • “…a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

I’m white and automatically ignorant to everything, but I really thought that referring to non-whites as “colored” was supposed to be offensive or something. Is this like how they can say the N word and we can’t? Anyways. There isn’t any ascertainable legislation that specifically targets black people. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Due to universities and corporate America increasingly favoring artificially installed diversity over merit and ideological diversity, there’s never been a better time in the history of the United States to be non-white. In just about every professional facet of life, Affirmative Action gives an unfair boost to Americans who identify as minority status, while giving a more impactful unfair handicap to Americans who identify as white or Asian. Not to mention that the entire political left has joined hands in praising all minorities and their cultures while simultaneously criticizing white culture and naming anyone who disagrees with them as literal Nazis.

  • “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag…”

What? You might dislike or even hate some things about your country. I have lists for miles of things that I dislike about the United States. I don’t like that we lack universal healthcare. I don’t like that most of our Presidents are self-enriching corporate sellouts. I don’t like that our EPA isn’t nearly powerful or determined enough to save the planet. What I do like is that we have a long-standing form of government that is based on Democracy and patriotism. I like that we inhabit some of the best land in the world, with natural waterways and oceans of defense against hostile countries. I like that we have a population that has repeatedly fought for the rights and wellbeing of civil rights. Most of all, I like that we the people have always found a way to come together, even in the face of tremendous ideological differences. Hell, I even like that we have ideological differences in the first place. The problem is that by showing disrespect for the anthem and our flag, you’re showing disrespect for the very concept of the country, not just the parts that you disagree with.

All of this looks terrible for the Left. While police reform and social equality are noble causes, so-called “social justice warriors” like Colin Kaepernick and the rest of the screeching feminists have found just about every destructive way to bring themselves attention. As usual, the perception of Kaepernick’s actions falls largely along party lines, with Liberals being awe-struck and Conservatives calling him an anti-American traitor. In reality, also as usual, the proper conclusion can be taken from somewhere in the middle. Kneeling for our anthem, burning our flag, and calling everyone who disagrees with you a racist actually doesn’t make you a traitor. It just makes you look very, very stupid. And you’re doing your side a major disservice.

 

Broke Republicans Are the Ultimate Cuckservatives

Voting for corporations to make more cash while you starve is economic cuckold

Many right-wing men are pretty obsessed with the word “cuck” these days. As defined by Urban Dictionary, “cuck” means:

Cuck is a man who’s a little bitch. Contrary to the beliefs of the liberal leaning crowd trying to explain something popularized by the conservatives, cuck is used by many races for someone who is spineless and IS derived from cuckold.

Her cuck boyfriend watched as a man flirted and felt up his girl in front of him.

She cheated on him and told him it would never happen again, he’s such a cuck to believe that.

As humans, we often project our fears onto others. Apparently swaths of right-leaning white men are fearful that black men will take on their nice white nonexistent girlfriends and wives. The idea is that it would be embarrassing to powerlessly witness another man having what should be yours.

The problem is that such an injustice is the entire premise of Capitalism. We live in an extremely fragile society where the slightest of natural disasters can topple basic services that we take for granted, such as cellular service and a timely response from 911 call centers. We saw this with Hurricane Harvey over the weekend and continuing into the week.

Economically speaking, keeping a country alive and thriving is a delicate balancing act in which you have to create public prosperity for those who have worked hard in life while also ensuring that those who’ve been dealt a bad hand don’t live in poverty. The United States, along with most other countries on Earth, are only good at one of those things. To painfully simplify the economic spectrum, you have communism on the far left, and capitalism on the far right.

Raw communism hardly works because everyone is essentially paid the same thing, no matter their effort or position. This inevitably leads to a lack of effort in society, as there are no promotions and no raises to strive for. Worse, you work for the government and not much innovation happens.

Raw capitalism, a form of anarchism, hardly works because the government provides nothing. Roads, bridges, healthcare, education, police, and the military would all belong to corporations instead of a democratically controlled government. Rather than votes and consensus creating laws, corporations would create them. Every road would have a toll, since road-making companies would need to make a profit.

Socialism is a strange term, as it really refers to having a mix of communism and capitalism. Modernly, “socialism” is a failed target of corporatists who are trying to equate it with communism and make it some sort of bogeyman to avoid at all costs (literally). Things that are “socialized” are called such because they are for the good of society. We socialize our roads, early education, police, and military, for a few examples. We definitely don’t want corporations controlling what police do, we want laws and regulations that were written for the good of society by democratically elected officials controlling what police do. In order to balance society, you need to balance communism and capitalism. This is just as fragile as coordinating emergency services (which are also socialized) during a disaster. It isn’t easy and takes a lot of debate and effort, as we see in the United States and around the world.

When the rich have too much power, our country gets dragged too far towards capitalism. Increasingly, corporations are finding ways to puppet master our schools and police. This problem is evident when we see officers brutalizing peaceful Standing Rock protestors at the behest of oil companies and banks invested in the Dakota Access Pipeline.

You don’t have to be Islamic to be a terrorist.

So-called “capitalists” almost always believe in some degree of socialism. Although common core is the subject of much criticism, including from myself, many Republican parents would dislike if they had to pay out of pocket for their children’s K-12 schooling. We pay taxes, and we expect that our children’s education will be mostly paid for by that. Patriotic corporations and employers are also happy to pay the taxes in order to achieve this so that they can hire competent and educated young people in the future. This is socialism and capitalism working together to create a strong economy and society, as they should.

Republican politicians and many centrist Democratic politicians don’t believe in these things. We increasingly see conservatives such as Betsy DeVos wanting to privatize education, and Donald Trump wanting to privatize our roads and bridges. These things would harm poor people greatly, as they would now have to spend part of their already abysmal wages on paying tolls to get to their job, as well as spend savings on educating their child (if they could even afford that.) We also know that these right-wing Republicans and Democrats largely oppose a higher minimum wage, tax-paid (not free, as many call it) college, and single-payer healthcare. These corporatist positions make the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and middle class disappear. Logically, no poor person would vote for the likes of a Paul Ryan, Donald Trump, Chuck Schumer, or Nancy Pelosi, as these are politicians who are committed to enriching the rich. But for some reason, they do. While there are a handful of Democrats who look out for the poor and advocate for more social programs, such as Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, or Ro Khanna, no modern Republican advocates for anything resembling a fair and just economy.

Broke Republican voters, who already have almost no money, will get up out of their house to go pull the lever for a politician that will pass legalization to make broke Republicans even broker. Of course, the money that could have been yours under a better system doesn’t just evaporate. It goes to the top 1%. Someone has your money, it just isn’t you. To me, that sounds a lot like powerlessly witnessing another man having what should be yours.

And that is why broke Republicans are the ultimate cuckservatives.

(Don’t forget that Republicans keep winning because you keep voting for Democrats.)

Let’s Impeach Trump So Mike Pence Can Be President!

/sarcasm

Donald Trump: A buffoon with not many interests other than himself. Mostly incompetent. Gifted at connecting with angry voters who aren’t sure what they’re angry about. Highly ineffective at passing legislation.

Mike Pence: A charismatic capitalist with not many interests other than his bank account and his religion. Mostly competent. Gifted at nodding behind the President during speeches. Effective at passing legislation.

Among the modern Republican Party’s draconian agenda are these gems from their own platform PDF:

  • “Government cannot create prosperity, though government can limit or destroy it.” Funny, I thought The New Deal was the government successfully creating prosperity and building hundreds of highways, creating millions of jobs.
  • “President Obama and his party will set a record of being the first modern president ever to leave office without a single calendar year of three percent economic growth.” I’m not only amused by the GOP’s inability to update their official platform 188 days after Trump took office (they still think Obama is president), but also their Texas Sharpshooter attempt to pretend that previous Republican presidents such as Bush were totally way better for jobs and the economy than Obama. Except when the Republicans’ deregulation of the banks and housing market crashed the entire planet.
  • “Traditional marriage and family, based on marriage between one man and one woman, is the foundation for a free society and has for millennia been entrusted with rearing children and instilling cultural values.” Yes, for some reason, of all the things that could be the foundation of a free society (such as the Constitution, democracy, or regulating corporate greed), the marriage of the eggplant and the donut is of utmost value. If two women get married to each other, surely we oppressed straight people will never be free again.
  • “We assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed.” *sighs* Unborn child = fetus which cannot exist outside of the female reproductive system, and this fetus is more important to Republicans than innocent death-row victims and feeding impoverished (born) children. Republicans have voted dozens of times to cut essential programs for the poor. They pretend to care about fetuses before they’re born into children, but after that, they can starve. Seems legit.

Now, that’s only four examples out of hundreds of hilariously incorrect statements made in their platform, and I found all four of those examples by skimming down to page 13 of 54. I’d suggest skimming it for yourself by tapping here.

These are goals that are certainly obtainable by the Republican Party. They hold the Presidency, the Senate, and the House, and their Vice President can break 50-50 ties in the Senate. So what’s the holdup? Disorganization and incompetency.

You can only do so much with an elected position, and you can only buy so much with money you get from book deals after you leave congress. Because of legalized bribery in our political system, congress is designed to reward those who take the most bribescampaign donations 😉 from corporations and special interests. Therefore, the federal government is mostly composed of men and women who are incompetent enough to value money and power over serving their constituents. Absolutely no person with a healthy and functional brain will vote to cut healthcare and food stamps for millions of poor people so that they can buy another yacht or golf club membership with their shiny new tax break.

how-money-won-congress_5318eb0e730bd

We know that all of the Republican Party and most of the Democratic Party suffer from gross incompetency, but disorganization is not always the case. The Republicans were able to achieve vast amounts of terrible legislation under President George W. Bush, without the embarrassing loudmouth fake populism of Donald Trump to take care of.

If we’re going to have a right-wing president, we want someone who is so stupid that he or she can’t actually get anything done. If an armed robber broke into your home, would you rather she was a trained sharpshooter, or some idiot barely knew how to disable the safety?

Trump is so stupid that he has trouble getting a lot of terrible things done, and this is great. Yes, he’s an international embarrassment, just as our last Republican president was. Yes, he’s dismantling the EPA and heading our planet towards self-destruction. Yes, he’s succeeded at doing any number of terrible, awful things. I’m not claiming he hasn’t, and I’m sure many more awful things are to come. My claim is this: Mike Pence or any other competent Republican would have scored touchdowns in many places where Trumpicus dropped the ball. 

I give Trump credit for failing in the same way that I would give a young child of terrorist parents credit for being too stupid to figure out how to drive his parent’s car full of bombs onto a bridge. Pence is the competent terrorist who also has the car full of bombs, but knows how to drive. Trump just crashes into a tree and then blames it on Hillary, lol.

The Russia allegations against Trump are either true or they aren’t. There’s plenty of suspicious evidence to suggest that collusion did happen between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in a way that would benefit Russia over the United States. Of course, rather than talking about the climate, healthcare, or jobs, the media (including progressive media) has latched onto the Russia story almost 24/7. While children starve and we bomb the Middle East endlessly, enriching defense companies, the corporate right-wing media like MSNBC spends its time red-scaring everyone with anti-Russian racism and propaganda. (Read: fake news.)

Let’s suppose the corporate establishment media is correct and Trump did collude with Russia. Okay, bad. We don’t like that. The President of the United States should put the United States first, always. That’s his or her job. So what do we do next? Impeach him and get Mike Pence, the competent and farther-right version of Trump on the job?

Mike Pence could score anti-poor, anti-climate, and anti-American legislation with ease as compared to Donald Trump. Like George Bush, but with extra electrocution for gay people.

The entire establishment media is owned by six mega corporations. Corporations, existing only to enrich themselves by definition, want as many draconian tax breaks as possible for themselves. Mike Pence would be a godsend for MSNBC’s parent Comcast, or CNN’s parent Time Warner. These crooked media outlets are dedicated to Trump’s impeachment so that we can get on with more important things like tax-breaks for corporations while our roads crumble, elderly people die, and children starve.

 

Impeach Trump, get Pence, and watch the toilet our planet is stuck in flush even faster.

 

Fight for Equal Rights without Being a Feminist

We can win, but we must embrace tolerance and equal rights with fierce persistence.

Egalitarian
adjective
asserting, resulting from, or characterized by belief in the equality of all people, especially in political, economic, or social life.

There was a simpler time in society where phrases like “all lives matter” and “men’s rights” weren’t trigger phrases for short-haired gender-fluid feminist whales. I’m an ex-feminist, current egalitarian for several years now. Belonging fairly solidly to the progressive movement myself, I was quick to slap labels on myself if it meant advancing the things that are important to me, like (in no particular order) animal rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, racial equality, LGB rights, etc.

Now is not a simpler time. At the complete convenience of feminists, word definitions either matter or don’t matter. The definition of the word “feminism” (it modernly means “women’s rights”) is extremely important and overrules any and all man-hating done by feminists, but the definition of “all lives matter” (it modernly means “all lives matter”) is extremely unimportant and if you use it you’re a racist white nationalist sexist pig. Logic.

So if I’m not a feminist, and the definition of feminism is “women’s rights,” does that mean I’m not for women’s rights? Nope.

Here we have to explore a very important concept: Just because I oppose a movement doesn’t mean that I oppose all of what they’re fighting for. The most shocking part for feminists while I’m debating them is that I completely support a woman’s right to choose, taxpayer-funded birth control as part of a medicare-for-all system, and voted for Jill fucking Stein in the 2016 presidential election. I also want to see sterilization become free and widely available for young men and women who want a happy and financially stable future without children.

Just because I oppose a movement doesn’t mean that I oppose all of what they’re fighting for.

Any notion that women have a gender-specific role in society is outdated and disgusting. If a young woman wants to be a mother, okay. Have at it. If a young woman wants to become the next billionaire CEO of a tech company, she should have an equally-footed chance to do so alongside her coworkers, with equal pay for the climb.

Any notion that women have a gender-specific role in society is outdated and disgusting.

So if I’m strongly in favor of much of that which feminism claims to fight for, why not just label myself “feminist”? For one: I’ve got a better label, egalitarian, with a clearer definition. But secondly, I believe in several things which are in stark contrast to typical liberal/feminist/progressive ideology, with my intent being to advance equality rather than blanket tolerate every asinine claim of oppression.

100% of my values are aimed at making society a safer and more equal place for people of both sexes and all ethnicities. In order to be an effective egalitarian, you have to beat feminists at their own game. You must embrace equality, tolerance, sympathy, and love for all beings.

When you see a feminist chowing down on a piece of meat which was once part of an innocent beingthat person is not for equal rights.

When you see a feminist supporting programs that give certain ethnicities advantages over other ethnicities, that person is not for equal rights.

When you see a feminist encouraging women be fat and to increase their risks of cancer and heart disease, that person is not for equal rights.

What you absolutely cannot do is confuse feminists for women. Men can be feminists, and women can be anti-feminists. As I wrote about earlier this week, most women hate feminism. In a survey of 1,000 American adults, ~820 said they “believe that men and women should be social, political and economic equals,” but only ~210 identified as feminist.

We have the numbers on our side. What we lack is organization and tolerance.

Scientifically speaking, a fetus is absolutely not a human life and could not exist outside of a womb. The surgical process of aborting a pregnancy is not any less ethical than getting a haircut. To be an effect egalitarian, you should be pro-choice.

The days when women lacked the same Constitutional rights as men are thankfully over. Women have proven to be extremely effective in the workplace and in society, and are increasingly the breadwinners in households. To be an effect egalitarian, you should embrace the success of women in our economy.

The notion than any land on this Earth belongs to a certain skin color or group of people is medieval. Europeans were not the first on American soil, Native Americans were. All of us have to share this planet. We must not only treat our land with respect, we must treat each other with respect. To be an effective egalitarian, you must share the planet.

I created Mad Indies because I’m a mad independent. I’m not a liberal, a Republican, a conservative, or a Democrat. I look at each issue on an issue-by-issue basis, weight the facts, and come to a conclusion. I’m also happy to change my mind on something if I’m proven wrong. I want to be effective in leaving society better than I found it.

You should too.

Transgenderism Is a Mental Disorder

If you want to hurt transgender people by furthering and enabling their mental illness, you are transphobic.

Once upon a time, I said that man-made climate change is a liberal conspiracy. And I was wrong. This is because there is overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary of my claim. Sea level rise, global temperature rise, warming oceans, shrinking ice sheets, extreme climate events, ocean acidification, and decreased snow cover are all reason to believe that recent human activity is destroying the planet.

“The climate debate is an interesting one. If you ask any scientist, are you sure that human activity is causing global warming, any scientist should say no. Because you can not be sure. On the other hand, if you said, do you think we should put an arbitrary number of trillions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere and just keep doing it until something bad happens, they’ll probably say no too.” –Elon Musk

The liberal claim that right-wing climate change denial is anti-science is true. 

The conservative claim that left-wing gender fluidity theory is anti-science is also true.

Once upon a time, I said that gender is a social construct, and people are whatever sex they feel comfortable identifying with. And I was wrong. This is because there is overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary of my claim. Unlike climate change, which requires multiple examples of warming and a connection to the chemicals our factories and machines create, establishing one’s sex is as easy as examining their chromosomes and some word definitions.

Let’s first examine the American College of Pediatricians‘ explanation of sex:

Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of male and female, respectively – not genetic markers of a disorder.

American College of Pediatricians

Next, let’s examine the official definitions of “sex” and “gender”.

Sex

“Either of the two main categories (male and female) into which humans and many other living things are divided on the basis of their reproductive functions.”

Gender

“Either the male or female division of a species, especially as differentiated by social and cultural roles and behavior.”

Now, if you tap on either of the hyperlinks above, you will see that there are multiple attempts at defining things like sex and gender. For example, Dictionary.com also offers a similar category of human beings that is outside the male/female binary classification and is based on the individual’s personal awareness or identity.” Strangely, this definition of gender specifically does not include males or females, meaning that men and women don’t have a gender. Oh well.

For all intents and purposes, it appears as though sex refers to which reproductive system someone has, and gender refers to an open labeling system which includes but is not limited to “male” and “female”. Therefore, one’s sex is absolutely not debatable: Sex refers to your reproductive system. One’s gender is debatable: Gender is an answer to the question: “What are you?” And just like real answers, your gender can be correct or incorrect. In other words, if your sex is male, and you claim you are female, then you are a male with a female gender. Your gender is indeed female, as that is your claim. Actually, you can change your gender as much as you want, whenever you want, to be whatever you want. But unless your gender matches your biological sex, your gender is incorrect. (Feminists are the ones who made this needlessly complicated, not me.)

At any point, I can say that “2+2=7,” and that is genuinely my answer: but my answer is incorrect. At any point, I can say “I am female,” and that is genuinely my gender: but my gender is incorrect even if I dress like a girl and have my reproductive system modified.

Disorder

“A disturbance in physical or mental health or functions.”

A study in Sweden determined the indisputable fact that transgenderism leads to seriously dangerous outcomes such as suicide, with the attempt rate as high as an unprecedented 40%. The only time a population has had a comparable suicide rate was that of Jews living under Nazi control. To feminists, this is either completely fine or they blame the suicide on bullying (I can’t imagine why someone who makes demands about their preferred pronouns and gets offended easily would be disliked by other members of society.) In reality, this is because many post-operative transgender people regret having the surgery, and there is no evidence that surgery improves the lives of those suffering from gender identity disorder.

Most dangerously, hormonal modifications and puberty blockers are extremely dangerous to one’s health and lead to serious medical complication. Feminist parents who allow or encourage children to have fantasies about becoming another sex are the same as religious parents who deny their children medical treatment in the name of a fake god. In the case that the child attempts suicide after having hormonal modifications, the parents could justifiably be tried for manslaughter.

The youngest recorded case of parents mutilating their child’s body with the intent of a sex change was child-abuse victim Tim Petras, who began surgery at the age of just 12.

kim_1289556c

Pre-pubertal children diagnosed with gender dysphoria may be given puberty blockers as young as eleven, and will require cross-sex hormones in later adolescence to continue impersonating the opposite sex. These children will never be able to conceive any genetically related children even via articifial reproductive technology. In addition, cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to cardiac disease, high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke, diabetes, and cancer.

American College of Pediatricians

When a boy looks in the mirror, and is uncomfortable with the fact that he is a boy, this is a form of under-confidence which must be kindly and compassionately dealt with, much like how suicidal thought must be dealt with: By encouraging the boy to cut his penis off and encouraging the suicidal person to jump off a building! Oops, typo. I meant to write: Encourage the boy to become comfortable with who he is (a male) but not to feel pressured to conform to societal normals about males. As far as I can tell, there isn’t anything dangerous about a boy doing typically girly things. Although I find a boy applying makeup and playing with dolls to be strange, there definitely isn’t anything wrong with it. But enabling a young and confused child to believe that they can modify their sex is child abuse, and a parent doing such a thing should probably be relieved of their custody.

A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such. These children suffer from gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V).5 The psychodynamic and social learning theories of GD/GID have never been disproved.

A particularly insane case involved a fifty-two year old married father of seven children pretending he is a six year-old girl.

This is not mental illness, according to transgender rights activists and feminists.

Now, Stefonknee lives with friends who she cans her ‘adoptive mommy and daddy’ as a six-year-old girl, dressing in children’s clothing and spending her time playing and coloring with her adoptive parents’ grandchildren.

Another case, this time not having to do with gender identity disorder, is a human woman who believes that she is a cat. Yes, really. Species identity disorder. Justification of this is likely next on the agenda of feminists.

The 20-year-old has opened up about her life as a puss, describing how she has a superior sense of hearing and sight which allows her to hunt mice in the dark.

I believe there is hope and a future for those suffering from transgenderism, but it starts with a society that wants to help cure them from their mental illness, not enable and encourage it.

Facts, not ideology, determine reality.
