On gender identity

girl_faces_down_preacher

Everyone is welcome to celebrate their gender.  It is wrong to force opinions and gender on others.  Gender is natural and ordinary; it does not come with special status or entitlement. 

One of the splits across society is that of gender identity.  If an individual identifies as male, female, trans or gay; this is sacred to them.  The body of the individual is sacred, all that belongs to their body, their sexual identity is sacred.  To bully and harrass an individual based upon some aspect of their body is wrong; and I am hostile to such bullies.

The most controversial of gender issues is that of trans, which brings out strong reactions and challenges for society.  In hunter-gatherer societies the transgender individual was considered a two-spirited individual, one who had a male and female spirit in them, which allowed them to move between the roles of carer of children to hunter; a useful individual to have when the tribe needed an extra flexible resource for the different tasks they depended upon to survive.

Trans is a born gender like that of being male or female.  If an adult, who has had no history of confusion over their gender in childhood, suddenly identifies as trans, then in my opinion it is more to do with a mental health issue or a fetish than being an authentic trans person.  One does not turn into a trans person, you are born one.

In my opinion, it is wrong to identify a trans person as male or female, they are a gender in their own right, which requires them to be treated as such.  Entering a man who identifies as a trans female in a female competition clearly is unfair because their physical strength gives them unfair competitive advantage.  Putting a sex offender male that identifies as female in a female prison, who then goes on to sexually abuse those females, is wrong.  Trans is a unique gender in their own right, thus they need their own prisons and categories in sport competitions.  The benefit of a trans is that they can move between the male and female roles and worlds, but it does not offer them total access to what a specific gender enjoys.

I strongly support the idea of merit where people earn their place through results and ability.  It is wrong in my opinion for any gender to claim exclusive benefit or privileges over a different gender because of their sex.  Those who push their gender and demand for specialness on others do irritate me.  Each gender brings to the table a set of characteristics that makes them more suitable for a role such as fighting wars or looking after children, but access to those roles is best done based on merit rather than self-entitled opinion.

Another problem in society is that it dumps all of its psychological baggage on its children.  Children will naturally evolve into the gender they are born to.  It is harmful and twisted for adults to force gender baggage onto children before they are ready.  There is a huge trans movement that is using political correctness and demands for special privileges they don’t have a right for, aggressively forcing their opinions and inferiority complex onto children.  Children are becoming confused, and are being pushed down paths that was contrary to their nature.  As an example, a highly sensitive male child might wrongly be seen as trans, then encouraged to become trans because the adults are hell bent on pushing their gender politics as far as it will go, and that innocent child is a pawn in an adult gender politics game.

Those pushing for special gender status over other genders risk losing it all.  The trans lobby for instance has caused unease across all levels of society; parents are anxious at what is being forced upon their children in the name of political correctness.  Those that speak up against what they see as militant gender politics risk being pursued for hate crimes, which further antagonises society.  Eventually, a political backlash will happen and a minority could lose all the positive gains they made for their gender.

The trans movement also has a problem in that they are being infiltrated by paedophiles who see the movement as a useful way to promote their condition as a sexual orientation with demands to the right to have sexual contact with children.

  1. I very much agree with what you are saying. I have always been supportive of what used to be called “transsexuals”, but I really think the modern “trans movement” is doing great damage to both the cause and understanding of genuine transmen and transwomen, and is just showing how disastrous identity politics is. I don’t even want to identify as gay anymore, due to the dreadful political associations of the LGBTetc movement.

      • I think the solution, such as it is, is apolitical, simply human. People in the gay and trans communities need to speak out against the rot in their own backyard. But it seems to me that the trans community has a particular problem in the refashioning of “transgender” which has only occurred in the last 15 years really, and has simply flooded their emerging world with highly manipulable, confused youngsters. The politicos make a killing, and the genuine voices are instantly turned into a minority within a minority. And you know how east it is nowadays to be branded a heretic and fascist just for disagreeing with consensus
