There was a time in my youth when if a child was born with a penis, we would get together and say “let’s call him a boy”. If that child was born with a vagina, we would think about and after a lengthy second of deliberation, we would say, “let’s call her a girl”.
Life was simple and straightforward.
We had male gender and female gender. We also had some males and females who, when they became sexually aware, preferred the company COMPLETELY of their own gender. That was their business and we all lived with it…most of us at least. But one did not decide that despite our biological designation we could determine what we wanted to be identified as. What utter rubbish!
Now, life has become so complicated. We have males born with huge testicles who determine that they want to be IDENTIFIED as females as though they created themselves and society must now see them as transgender – whatever the hell that is.
And I am not speaking about those persons who because of some biological or genetic quirk might have some gender issues. I am speaking about persons who because of sexual preferences, inclinations, orientation, whatever one wants to call it, determine that to put a knife to their manhood suddenly makes their gender at birth irrelevant.
But it gets worse. We have some who claim to be genderless. So, a female at birth, decides at adulthood, that she is neither he, she or even they, and given some intellectually misguided mumbo-jumbo, decides that she could be all three.
We are supposed to be the intelligent beings on the earth but animals have us clipped. Lions are lions.
Lionesses are lionesses. It is that simple in the animal kingdom. Intelligence can be so easily a dangerous thing in the wrong minds.
And while these people attempt to push their agenda under the guise of human rights, they would seek to deny me the right not to accept this nonsense.
We live in a mad, mad, mad world.
