Gender Denial

I think it’s interesting (and that’s the nice way of saying it) that a country who considers Science to be god would fight so hard against the idea of gender, that they push the idea that we can deny our genetic code or “choose” our gender as if it hasn’t already been decided for us at conception. 

How ridiculous!

Our chromosomes and genetic codes are scientific realities.  And yet here we are, denying scientific reality, acting as if it’s nonexistent and negotiable.

If you attack and tear down your own “god,” where does that leave you?

Personally, I believe in a shocking, new-fangled idea… that God created us as males and females, that (with few exceptions) most of us were born as boys or girls, no matter how much we try to deny it.


FYI, I am not referring here to people who want to change their gender when they are older. 

I am talking about the nonsense of trying to remove gender from birth certificates as though it doesn’t really exist. 

I am talking about people who claim that doctors “assign” a child its gender at birth when a doctor is really just stating a biological fact. 

I am talking about parents who choose their child’s gender for them, encouraging them to be the other gender or to be “gender-neutral” before the child even understands what gender is, using their child as a way to show how “open-minded” and “progressive” they can be so that they can fit in with what’s popular in society at the moment.

I am talking about parents who say that they will not assign their newborn baby a gender but will let the child pick its own gender when it’s older.

NEWSFLASH:  Your baby was born with a pre-determined gender.  It’s a biological fact.  And by refusing to acknowledge it, you are teaching your child that this very personal, intimate, important part of them is unimportant, shameful, and unspeakable, that it’s something to be ignored or denied.

Which one is going to mess them up more?  Acknowledging and celebrating their maleness or femaleness (even if they want to change it later) OR denying their gender and acting like it’s unimportant, like it’s shameful to be a boy or a girl?

I believe that most people will agree with me here, but they will feel bullied and shamed into sounding more “open-minded and progressive.”  “Open-mindedness” has become the new god in our society.  And it is squeezing out truth and reality.

And now, society has become so intolerant toward truth that we will not even tolerate biological facts.  It has become “cool” to deny truth and biological reality and to attack anyone who stands up for it. 

“To tolerate” used to be along the lines of “respectfully agreeing to disagree.” 

But now it means “You have the right to agree with me, but if you don’t then you are hateful, evil, and wrong, and I will get together a group of Facebook friends to protest and to tear you down.” 

When did Truth and Reality and Fact go out of style?  When did good ol’ common sense become something to be ashamed of?  When did promoting nonsense and looking foolish and sounding stupid become popular and fashionable?

A changing society doesn’t necessarily mean that we are getting smarter or better.  Sometimes it just shows what fools we can be!

No one has the guts anymore to stand up for truth and common sense because we are too busy trying to impress each other with how progressive and open-minded we can be, even if it makes us look stupid.  As intelligent human beings and as an advanced society, we should be ashamed of ourselves for how easily we let ourselves be bullied and shamed into agreeing with nonsense.
