Instead of buying into the transgender narrative, we need to abolish gender.

Samantha Rea discusses how unconscionable it is for gender to be enforced on children, leading them to accept the transgender narrative and dangerous, untested surgeries. What we need is to abolish gender.

There is no inherent reason why lipstick is for girls – if a boy wants to wear lipstick, he’s still boy: he doesn’t need his gender reassigned. There’s no innate reason for dresses to be deemed girls’ clothing – that’s just an (outdated) idea in our society, a cultural construction. If a boy wants to wear a dress, it doesn’t mean he needs his gender reassigned.

As a Madonna fan, in my own tween years, I’m pretty sure Madonna mentioned wanting to wee standing up. That doesn’t mean she should have been born a man and nor is it a sign she needs surgery to reassign her gender. If Catch wanted to wee standing up, then why not allow him to do that as a girl? Trickier feats have been accomplished.

At the end of the programme, Theroux says the choice to transition is, “a chance to exercise the most fundamental right we have – the right to be ourselves.” But the children are already being themselves – and we need to accept them as they are.

    Isn’t that the point, though?

    To break down gender norms?

      Nah, the point is to destroy gender absolutely and completely. No more prison cells.

        Hmm…

        I just got back from group therapy and I’m a little disappointed. It started with us talking about the presidential debate and our group leader went on and on about how “everyone’s entitled to their opinion” and how much debate made the world round. She even openly used the word “butthurt” to describe people who argue. I didn’t want to start a fight, but I’ve gone over countless times with you why I think that’s a bunch a bull. If everyone is entitled to an opinion, then nobody is entitled.

    Lately, it feels like my stupidity speaks for itself. I’ve drawn criticism against all kinds of norms and stereotypes like South Park and moral absolutism, but it seems all I get in return for it are fingers pointed and laughter at me.

      Then maybe you’re not posting in the right venues.

        I’ve done most of my venting on Yahoo.

        • Francois Tremblay September 30, 2016 at 14:13

          That may not have been the right venue.

            Anyway, everyone at therapy is voting for Trump.

    Dude, I don’t want to sound whiny, but for the past several posts whenever I make a point, you seem to just drop the conversation.
