Most if not all periodicals and tabloids praised Bruce Jenner on his ‘transition’ into womanhood. I found this surprisingly brutally, honest article from ‘The Blaze‘ written by Matt Walsh on his thoughts on the matter. Here are a few excerpts:
On Friday night, a mentally ill crossdresser named Bruce Jenner was interviewed for two hours during prime time about his plan to gruesomely mutilate his genitals in a macabre pseduo-medical ritual often erronsously described as a “sex change.” He detailed his decision to Diane Sawyer, calmly declaring: “For all intents and purposes, I am a woman.”
He concluded that the next best course of action is to castrate himself and live the rest of his life pretending to be a girl. He’s already undergone extensive cosmetic surgery, including shaving down his trachea (which is a thing that doctors will actually do, apparently) in pursuit of some perverse, bastardized notion of synthetic femininity.
In response, our depraved and insane country has hailed him as something approaching a god, with millions of people flooding social media to heap unrestrained praise and adulation.
Yes, in the unhinged mind of popular culture, a man puts on a pantsuit and suddenly he’s a brave, strong, courageous, amazing, historic, legendary, superhero warrior savior. He went from a D-list reality TV celebrity to Jesus Christ, and all because he said he wants to be a she.
This is demented. The whole thing. All of it.
It’s worth noting, too, that it doesn’t generally require “courage” or “bravery” or “strength” to do something that is sure to result in television deals and roaring applause from a sea of adoring fans. Usually, courage is not defined as “the willingness to endure immense popularity, esteem, fame, and profit.”
I’m not saying this was all a marketing ploy, but his bank account and reputation are certainly reaping the rewards.
So, heroic? Hardly. Amazing? This old man with cerebral palsy using a typewriter to paint the Mona Lisa is amazing, but Bruce Jenner? Sorry, I don’t see it.
I think the better word would be horrifying. And sad. And depressing. And despicable.
My son is 2 and has for several months self-identified as a tyrannosaurus rex. Should I rewatch “Jurassic Park” to get ideas on how to raise an extinct reptile? Or should I assume he’s a small child and small children have active imaginations and a very tenuous grasp on reality? I think I prefer the second option, although the moment he sprouts into a five ton lizard and tries to eat my car, I’ll certainly reconsider.
But my son’s dinosaur pretensions are just a bit of harmless fun. “Transgenderism,” on the other hand, is a dangerous road to a dark place.
It never occurs to these exceedingly “tolerant” do-gooders that transgenders are killing themselves, abusing drugs, and carving their bodies into pieces because they are unhappy. They are unhappy before surgery, and often even less happy afterwards. They are self-loathing. They are desperate. The last thing — the absolute last thing — they need is to be told they should embrace their mental illness and believe whatever lies it tells them about themselves.
Bruce Jenner has a male anatomy, male chromosomes, male DNA, male hormones, a male bone structure, and male reproductive organs. He is a male. He can never be anything but a male. He is not a woman “for all intents and purposes,” for the same reason that I am not an antelope or a pine cone for all intents and purposes. Indeed, it is specifically my “intents and purposes” that make me neither a pine cone nor an antelope and Jenner neither a woman nor “transgendered.”
He can grow out his hair and shop in the women’s section at Barneys, but none of that will have any impact on his practical physiological disposition. He can change his wardrobe, but that will not change his DNA. He can ask us to use different pronouns when addressing him, but that won’t cause him to start ovulating or lactating.
Jenner, like many “transgender,” defends his decision to “transition” by explaining that he has “the soul of a female.” I was reminded of this today by a progressive atheist who quite matter-of-factly informed me that sometimes people’s souls don’t match their bodies. It’s fascinating that suddenly, after decades of shoving secularism down our throats, left wingers have discovered the human soul, and summarily assessed that in some cases it’s been mismatched, like brown socks with black pants.
I guess that’s what they mean when they say “transgenders” have been “assigned” the wrong sex. I always wondered, assigned by whom? And if this entity is powerful enough to give us souls, how could it be so clumsy and careless about it?
It seems we’ve again arrived at another contradiction. If there is no God, then there is no spirit realm, then there is no soul. And if there is no soul, and no God, and no other dimension outside of the physical, then we are our bodies and only our bodies. From the entirely atheistic, secular view, “transgenderism” is an utter impossibility. We are material. We are only material. So whatever we are can be ascertained by an inspection of the material. Thus, if our DNA, anatomy, reproductive systems, hormones, and chromosomes indicate “man,” we are men. End of discussion. That’s all there is.
However, if the “transgender” soul exists, then souls exist, then an immaterial spiritual dimension exists, then God exists. And if God exists, He created us. And if God exists and created us, then He is both all powerful and omnipotent. And if he is both all powerful and omnipotent then it is impossible for Him to accidentally put a soul in the “wrong” body. Impossible. It cannot happen.
As always. What are your thoughts? Post your comments below.
