Tall Trans Tales for a Gullible Age

My wife and I decided long ago that we would live in a double-wide down by the river rather than send our kids to government schools. We are constantly reminded of the rightness of that decision, most recently by a talk given to a room full of kids at George Mason High School in Falls Church, Virginia who were forced to sit and listen to crackpot theories about gender identity, sexual orientation, and the usual yadda yadda yadda.

Amy Ellis Nutt is a reporter for the Washington Post who wrote a book about a boy named Wayne who from the age of two was said to believe he was a girl. How did he express this? How does a two-year-old express anything more than a desire for the breast and a dry diaper? Nutt claims the boy actually asked his mom when will he get to be a girl and when will his penis fall off. Does anyone really believe that a two-year-old would say such things?

Nutt says the little boy liked to play with Barbie dolls and wear his princess dress. Here’s a question for Nutt; where did he get Barbie dolls to play with and the princess dress? As far as I can tell, this adopted boy did not have any older sisters. Did Barbie dolls and a princess dress just happen to appear in his bedroom?

Nutt also says the little boy wore a tee-shirt over his head and down his back so that it would seem like he had long hair. This reminds me of Jazz Jennings, the transgender breakout star, who was said as a toddler to unsnap his Onesies to make it appear he was wearing dresses. These are nothing but tall tales for a gullible age.

Nutt showed the kids a photo of the boy with his twin brother both of whom were wearing grass skirts their granddad brought them back from Hawaii. What kind of grandad buys his grandsons grass skirts? She said Jonas took his off right away. Good boy. But Wayne “wore his all day.”

Nutt delivered a mini-lecture on what she called “gender 101” in which she propagandized those poor kids on these new and utterly made up terms “transgender” and “cisgender.” As you likely know, at least in their world and certainly not ours, “trans” means your biological sexual characteristics do not match what you think you are, while “cis” means they both match. We are cis because we aren’t nuts.

Nutt says, “We all need to become comfortable with the new language, not only the word transgender but cisgender and a lot of others that are actually changing every day (emphasis mine).” She says language matters. It certainly does. All monstrous and even totalitarian lies begin with the lies of language, and in the “transgender” world, they are, as Nutt says, “changing every day.”

Nutt goes on to say, “No matter how or what you looked like when you were born. No matter what gender identity you now embrace, or sexual orientation you ascribe to, this one thing is true for all and everyone, your biggest sex organ is your brain.” She says, “Everything to do with how you present yourself to the world, what genitals you have, what reproductive organs you have, what gender you identify with, and who you are sexually attracted to was imprinted on your brain by way of two things, hormones and genes when you were still in your mother’s womb.” Forget that there are no scientifically rigorous studies that back this claim.

She goes on to explain that sex and gender are two separate things and they can be categorized in four ways; biological sex, gender expression—how you dress and wear your hair and how you act—gender identity, which, she says, obviously refers to the gender you know you are which is not aligned with the biological sex at birth, and sexual orientation, which refers to “who you go to bed with.” Gender is not a choice in the same way eye color is not a choice. What is a choice, she says, is to codify laws that discriminate against transgender people. And it is a choice not to educate yourself about transgenderism or to simply not care.

She then launched into an emotional plea about kids who think they are transgender and whose only fear is whether they will be loved or left.

This is pretty much all they have, fake science and emotion. But they also have the microphone, something they won’t relinquish without a fight.

Rather than refute these crazy claims, however, I want to let all of this sink in. Read these claims slowly. This is what government schools are teaching impressionable young people, some of whom, without any doubt, are going through confusing times and will listen to this siren song and will one day allow themselves to be mutilated.

Do these schools teach that puberty blockers, such as Wayne was given, stunt your growth, growth that will never come back? Are these kids taught that there has not been a single clinical trial for the use of puberty blockers on gender confused kids? Are they taught that an overwhelming number of gender confused children, something on the order of 80 percent, come around to accepting their biological sex in their twenties? Are they taught of the growing number of adult men and women who deeply regret the extreme measures of amputating otherwise healthy organs like breasts and penises? Are they taught that the suicide rate for post-op transsexuals is 10 times higher than the general population even in trans-friendly Sweden? To ask is to answer. Wayne, now going as Nicole, allowed himself to be castrated a few years ago. Nutt says she was there.

Wise parents would never allow their children to darken the door of government schools where such cockeyed propaganda is given an official imprimatur by those masquerading as educators. They would live in a doublewide down by the river if that is the only way to pay for proper private schools that do not teach this dangerous nonsense.
