Apolo Villalobos, American Thinker
Let’s be honest -- there’s something intrinsically creepy about the whole transgender idea. Pretend all you want, say all you want, but the idea of a man asking to be castrated, taking hormone shots, and putting on a dress makes one’s skin crawl.
This transgender mania began with the sudden obsession and mass glorification of a celebrity who decided to switch genders. You may remember the orgiastic reaction by the leftist media: “Bruce Jenner is courageous! He’s very courageous! She’s so courageous! Let’s give her the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. I’m so inspired by how courageous he/she/it is! Aren’t you?”
Predictably, the LGBTQBSLMAO community embraced the latest movement. So did feminists. For decades, the Lysenko-feminists proclaimed that sex is a social construct, not genetic, not biological, that culture determines gender. Sex is arbitrarily assigned at birth. Sexuality is, therefore, fluid and can be changed like one’s shirt. Jim Goad’s retort is perfect: “It never seems to occur to these dolts that culture is an expression of biology.”
A rush of transgender propaganda has flooded the media, not just in America, but in Canada and across the pond, (where every leftist trend in the U.S. is instantly copied), determined to ram transgenders down society’s throat. We are supposed to admire them, we are supposed to emulate them, we are supposed to think like them. The American Psychological Association, --always a festering sore of political correctness -- jumped into the transgender bandwagon. Even the National Geographic magazine, which embraced Political Correctness under the new editor, ran a cover article eulogizing transgender children (the reason given for doing so was moronic). And the TV series Supergirl now has a transgender character.
