On April 30, 2016, Buzzfeed published an article about a teenager who "cannot" open a bank account because they are non-binary genderfluid, and do not "identify" as male or female. The article also reports on the struggle to apply to a university when a binary gender is required on the application.
Let's unpack this for a moment.
Kaelin, who was born a female and has female biology, can’t apply for a bank account or university because she won't check the box that says "female.” Her family is complaining that she has been discriminated against because of this, and are spoiling for a fight.
This is insane. It is literally insanity. A mental delusion. And one people need to stop humoring.
According to gender theorists and activists, gender is separate from sex and how one "identifies.” This results in the idea that male and female as we know it are simply social constructs, and any expectations of said genders are also social constructs. Further, they claim that gender itself is a fluid concept, a spectrum range, to which one can be anywhere between male and female and sometimes change depending on the minute.
Do you see the contradiction yet?
If gender is a social construct and has no basis in biology, gender itself does not exist. If societal expectations of a gender such as dress and fashion are also simply social constructs, then why choose to "transition" or present as another gender at all? If so, they are confirming that social expectations of the gender do matter, and that there is an important part of the biology.
If, as they say, a transgendered man can have a female sexual biology and vice versa, then gender loses all meaning. Again, it is rooted merely in feelings and how one chooses to identify.
And if that is the basis you have to go on, and social expectations can be removed, then there is only one standard that matters. What is that standard? Sexual biology. Why? Because that is objective, measurable, and you know what parts you have. You could identify as an Apache attack helicopter and still be able to check a box to say what parts you have.
Public restrooms? Go in the room that corresponds with your biological sex, since sex is different from gender.
Too many in this generation have decided their feelings outweigh such things as science and biology. And people are enabling this under the idea that we cannot tell them they are wrong, that we must support the way they choose to live.
Gender is a binary. It is inherently rooted in biology. Gender is sex and sex is gender. This is a fact. To teach otherwise is insanity.
Gender dysphoria is real and those affected need to be supported and understood. And then they need to seek treatment for it. Enabling the delusion is not healthy to those that suffer, nor healthy to society.
Let's stop denying reality.
