The massive push we are experiencing nationwide in regards to the mainstreaming and forced acceptance of homosexuality is branching out to encompass the entire so-called Lesbian, Gay, Transsexual, Bisexual, and Transgender community. And the idea that we have to now completely and totally bow to the whims of the sexually confused is extending into every area of public life including the schools. The seemingly latest idiocy is that any gender that declares himself or herself as ‘self-identifying’ as the opposite gender has to be given full access to the restrooms and locker rooms of the gender of their choosing. In our topsy-turvy modern world, once again the wishes of a very small but militant minority trumps the rights of the majority with impunity. No account is given to children, or the feelings of their parents, who might have an objection to children of the biologically opposite sex sharing such tight and private facilities with them on a daily basis. Apparently nothing is off-limits when it comes to accommodating sexual dysfunction.
I illustrate this point by showcasing an example from my home state below.
In a decision being hailed as monumental in the struggle for transgender rights, the Colorado Civil Rights Division ruled Monday that a 6-year-old transgender girl, Coy Mathis, must be permitted to use the girls’ bathroom in her school.
A little more background on this story can be found here:
Kathryn and her husband, Jeremy, appeared with Coy on the “Katie” show Wednesday to talk about the case. “The school is really missing out on something big,” Kathryn, a photographer and certified nurse’s assistant, said during the broadcast. “They could be taking the opportunity to teach all of the students that everybody is different and that we should embrace our differences and we should respect everybody. Instead they’re creating this divided environment where they’re showing all these children that a child is different and we’re going to treat them poorly because of it.”
Meaning, of course, that “embracing our differences” means boys can use girls restrooms regardless of how actual girls (or their parents) feel about it. I knew a good number of high school males who would have rather suddenly discovered their inner female right around swim class with the female locker room so close by, but that’s another story. But I guess as long as you can state with a straight fact that you identify as a girl the great state of Colorado and a good number of others will play along and allow you to roam the girls locker rooms and restrooms with utter abandon.
By the way, do not miss out on perusing the comments sections of these articles. They are not to be missed and while I maintain a semblance of decorum and restraint when addressing these types of social matters, others do not.
It’s a sick and twisted world we live in. Gee, I wonder why the kid thinks he’s a girl because we dress him like one, cut his hair like one, take him to girl scouts, and act like he’s one? What a pile of horse manure. It’s ridiculous to the extreme. I know little kids who thought they were a dog, a soldier, a princess, and many other things. Sometimes, for significant amounts of time. I believe I thought I was member of the Rebel Alliance for several years after the Star Wars movies came out. It’s a kid being a kid. Your plumbing and your DNA define your gender, not societal fads and screwed up parenting. These parents are setting this kid up for a lifelong journey of gender confusion, emotional damage, and social stigma. And then they have the unmitigated gall to force us all have to put up with their twisted view of the world.
The fact that the other genetically identical triplet ( the one that is not disabled) is apparently as normal as can be expected in this dysfunctional family is just another testament that in fact that this type of thing is not really genetic, but a product of environment and guidance by others somewhere along the way. While this is all kind of cute and giggly now, wait until puberty arrives. Guess what junior, you really ARE a boy. I think they’ll all be surprised one way or the other. Won’t that just be fun for everyone involved when it’s shower time in the girl’s locker room? This really is a form of blatant child abuse and emotional negligence and unfair to every other child out there. What kind of father does this to his son? And what kind of ‘man’ will he turn out to be?
No one wants to admit it or say it, but parents do have the important role of helping to impart gender identities and responsibilities into their children. That’s one of the reasons God has given children parents in the first place. We are here to impart identity, responsibility, morals, values, ethics, social mores and skills, and related subjects into our children so that they may mature into well-rounded, emotionally healthy adults. When you do not do that, this is the kind of result that can transpire.
If one my three girls had suddenly decided to play the game with me that they were going to act, live, and behave like a boy all the time the answer would be a firm, loving, and determined “I don’t think so.You are a girl and you are going to look and act like it whether you like it or not. Believe me, you’ll thank me later.”
I didn’t have any sons so I did many of the things I might otherwise have done with a son with my daughters. We went bug hunting (I’m a big bug and animal guy), and threw around a football, and shot a gun, and wrestled etc. etc. I taught them to be self-reliant and confident and respectful of themselves and their bodies and to stand up for what is right and correct. I also taught them to realize they are young ladies and to act like it at least once in a while. I helped shave off the “rough edges” here and there and taught them that femininity was not a badge of shame for them, but a badge of honor. It’s what sets them apart from men and is something that should be treasured among women. They are fairly ‘girly’ to one degree or another and I love them for it.
My youngest (age 10), especially, is my shadow and adores me beyond belief. She quite openly imitates me in a great many respects in her tastes and interests. I am, of course, flattered and we have a great relationship and spend a significant amount of time one on one together. But that doesn’t mean I would ever encourage any gender transference in looks or deeds, or suddenly allow her to abandon who she truly is physically, mentally, and emotionally. Which is a girl. And she is encouraged to be a girl, look and act like a girl, and identify as a girl even as she is the apple of her father’s eye and his little buddy. That’s true parenting.
As the “progressive” popular culture wrestles with the concept as to whether there are really three, five, eight, or perhaps even more genders and “that human gender is not a fixed thing but a mere ‘social construct’ that is ‘changeable over time,'” the rest of us know better. And we really should stand up and not put up with this anymore. Screw up your kid on your own time, but don’t expect my daughter to share the bathroom with your son.
