Posts Tagged ‘From He to She in First Grade’

gay-and-transgender-heartThe New York Times recently published a piece by a parent who recently accepted/encouraged her son to become a trangendered girl. The article was titled “From He to She in First Grade“. It was supposed to be a feel-good, look how open-minded we are and how you should be story. Naturally that’s not what I got from this step by step progression. I got a story about society so degraded, that it not only accepts, but celebrates child abuse and neglect.

    The (pretty well predictable) readers digest version of this tale of woe follows:

  1. Parents buy chest of dress-up clothes
  2. To encourage creativity they include female clothing. “we didn’t want his or his castmates’ creative output to be curtailed”
  3. The boy gravitated to a particularly frilly dress.
  4. The boy became fascinated with the dress. “He put on the sparkly green dress right away. In a sense, he never really took it off.”
  5. The open minded parents allowed him to wear it at home and eventually in public. “Eventually he stopped changing out of it. He wore it to the grocery store and when he had friends over.”
  6. This open display of their open-minded credentials stroked their leftist egos and sense of superiority. “My husband and I were never of the opinion that girls should not wear pants or climb trees or get dirty, or that boys should not have long hair or play with dolls or like pink, so the dress did not cause us undue alarm or worry.”
  7. School was about to start though, so the parents fretted about what to do… they didn’t fret too long though… pausing in the middle of the road (rationality) before quickly turning left. “The former (letting the boy wear dresses to school) had the advantage of being fair, what we believed, and what would make our child happiest. The latter had the advantage of being much less fraught (with people who aren’t as superior and enlightened).” (Of course “happy” is relative to the here and now, vs the well being and development of the child as he progresses to adulthood. A child may be happy in the here and now if you let him play in the street… in the long run it may not be such a good idea. It’s called parenting.)
  8. So they let the kid decide (which by general definition is really, really bad parenting) “So we asked him, ‘What do you think you’ll do with your dress when school starts in a couple weeks?’ We said: ‘You need new clothes for the new school year. What should we buy?'”
  9. The kid chose dresses. (Receiving absolutely no guidance of outdated ideas of right or wrong from the parents.)
  10. They prepared the kid for the troglodyte children. Asking “What do you think other kids will say tomorrow if you wear a dress to school?”
  11. They made sure the teacher was a fellow leftist. “I hadn’t met his new teacher yet, so I sent her a heads-up by email… She emailed back right away, unfazed, and she promised to support our child ‘no matter what.'” (She was leftist, otherwise this story would have been about lawsuits)
  12. They went school shopping and bought his “appropriate” (non frilly) dresses for school.
  13. They paused once more in the middle of the road (rationality)… before turning left. “My husband and I took deep breaths and walked him to school. For my son’s part, he fairly floated, seemingly unconcerned. Having decided, he was sure.”
  14. They were aghast that “yes” there were troglodyte children at the school who teased their son… but it wasn’t as bad as they had feared. “That lasted longer than I had expected, but it was mostly over within the month.”
  15. They now take pride in the wisdom of the son (ooops daughter). “He had already decided. He didn’t think about that anymore. And he — she — never looked back.” (Did you notice the emotional, teary transition there… how could that be wrong?)
  16. Now they have the means to continually display their open-minded credentials, stroke their leftist egos and sense of superiority. “And we, as a family, decided to be open and honest about it, too, celebrating her story instead of hiding it.”

concept-arroganceThe moral of the story is that if after reading this tripe you don’t unconditionally support their decision and their “daughter” then you are a bigot and should be ashamed of yourself. Regardless of your position, you will be expected to either 1) voice your unconditional support or 2) shut the hell up. The fact that you don’t want your kids exposed to this crap is IMMATERIAL. The fact that you don’t want this boy in your daughters dressing room in a few years is IMMATERIAL. If you are a bigot, your concerns are and always will be IMMATERIAL. Society must literally progress…

What this story says (besides identifying us bigots) is that society has degraded beyond the point of no return and the rate of degradation seems to be exponential. Western and American society is collapsing (and this is just a symptom of that). Objective truth and reality are being tossed aside for self indulgence and feelings.

crab-hatWhat if this young boy decided to stop being a boy in a skirt and transitioned to being a fiddler crab in a skirt instead? No really, what if he decided he was a girl fiddler crab and insisted on scuttling sideways and pinching things… in a dress? What if he decided he must be true to this feeling about himself and do this in public and at school? What if in his heart of hearts he really believed he is a fiddler crab? By leftist standards, self indulgence and feelings trump everything (even logic and reality). Would feelings (and support from his parents) make him a fiddler crab by today’s enlighten standards?

The question and the idea behind it is absurd… but no less absurd than the “reality” these parents and their leftist compatriots INSIST that we accept as truth. This boy is no more a girl than he is a fiddler crab. Feeling things are or ought to be does not make them objectively true.

encouragement-be-true-to-yourselfThe world says you can be anything you want to be if you just believe hard enough. Having parents who shirk their responsibility helps; not to mention enablers in the form of family and friends and those with social agendas (like teachers). And finally shaming those who would dare point out the emperor has no clothes is the order of the day. Love and compassion are now defined as pretending (or actually convincing yourself) that a lie is truth and that objective truth is a lie.

Telling a drowning man that everything is fine is no mercy (nor compassion). Sending your child into the water with a stone tied around his neck is unconscionable.

The world says to thine own self be true, embrace who god or nature or made you. That, to be honest with you, is the last thing we should do.

christ-deny-yourself-signA wise man (God himself) tells us to do the exact opposite. He tells us to “deny” ourselves, to deny our nature and instead to seek something better, something not of this world… Him. That is one of the hardest things to do as a human being. And part of being a good parent is preparing our children not to embrace every whim or nature we experience, no matter how fashionable or enlightened.
