|Sometimes life just takes a shit on us. Other|
times it's a pigeon. Either way, we've just got
to deal with it.
So when I say that it's incredibly retarded that we as a society are doing too much to accommodate transgendered people, I hope that you realize I'm not speaking from a position of fear, ignorance, or bigotry.
Here's the thing: I'm empathetic to their plight. I have no idea what it's like to feel like I should have a vagina instead of a penis, or to think that nature, God, or whatever somehow made a mistake in making me a man, but I can understand that it must suck pretty hard core to feel that way and not be able to help it. But really, isn't this just a mental disorder?
Think about it. You're a dude, but you think that "inside," you're a woman, or that you were somehow supposed to be a woman. Isn't that fairly fucking delusional? What if I thought, deep down inside, that I'm actually a penguin, and that God and nature mistakenly made me a human being? What if, deep down inside, I thought that I'm a math genius even though I suck hard core ass at math? Wouldn't you think I'm delusional?
I could never be a penguin, and I can never be a math genius, but as long as that's what I feel on the inside, that's what I am, or so at least that seems to be the idea du jour for society right now. I read an article today about how a boy wants to join the girl scouts. When the den mother, or whatever the fuck they call it, told the boy's mother "no," mom responded with "well I don't see what the big deal is."
. . .
Oh I don't know, maybe it's because he's a boy. I guess he's considered transgender or whatever, because he wants to be a girl, but so fucking what? He's not a girl. No matter how hard I try--I can get a bunch of cosmetic operations to look like a penguin, I can go live in the arctic and huddle with them and shit--I can never be a penguin. Similarly, he can get all the operations he wants, and do however much hormone therapy or whatever to his heart's content, he will never, ever be a girl.
Why? Well, if for whatever reason it needed to be determined beyond a shadow of a doubt whether he's a male or female, then a DNA test would show that he's a male. Forever. You can't change your DNA. It's not what parts you have, what clothes you wear, or who you fuck and how that determines what you are. It's your DNA. Pretending to be the opposite sex is nothing more than pretending.
"Well Jack, sex is different than gender." Sure it is. You can be the most feminine dude on the planet. You can get your dick chopped off, get a brand spanking new vagina, a nice pair of tits, and all the estrogen you want coursing through your veins, but at the end of the day it's just an extremely expensive game of dress-up.
And society wants to accommodate this. Instead of telling them, "you're confused, and you've got a real mental disorder," we cater to their fucked up brain shit. Mind you, the same *cannot* be said for being gay. If you're attracted to the same sex, that is real. It might go against our biology, but then again so does monogamy. Believing that you should be the opposite sex, or that somehow you are the opposite sex inside (whatever the fuck that even means) is delusional, because you can never be anything other than what you are.
It might suck, but you simply cannot be whatever you want to be. We have to play the hand we're dealt, and instead of allowing children to indulge in the disorder, we should help them cope with it. That mom might feel great that her little boy can go be a girl scout, but that little boy is going to face a lifetime of ridicule for it. Is it really worth it?
