You know something is wrong when people consider it prejudiced and hateful to state a basic scientific fact like, “sex is determined by XY or XX chromosomes.”
They have successfully blurred the lines between sex and gender, male and female, science and feelings.
I have no fear of or hatred for transgender people. I’ll even call them by their preferred pronoun since that’s the polite thing to do. It is not my place to tell others how to live their lives.
But it seems like the powers that be want to destroy the meaning of words and ignore science in favor of political correctness. But this has real-world consequences.
One example is professional sports.
Since men and women are biologically different, they have different muscle composition, hormones, and therefore athletic abilities. And when you allow anyone who was born a male to play women’s sports, they have a distinct advantage, even if they have “transitioned.”
So if we deny science, and pretend a “gender reassignment surgery” can actually change a person’s biological sex, say goodbye to women’s sports.
At this point in scientific advancement, a person is stuck with the chromosomes they were born with.
Another example of the problems created by destroying the meaning of words is exemplified in an article called Blurred lines: A pregnant man’s tragedy tests gender notions.
The author criticizes hospital staff for treating a transgender man like a man.
You would think that’s what they are supposed to do, right? Go along with the new make-believe definition of male and female, just like the headlines does (because just a reminder, in the real world, men can’t be pregnant).
But now hospital staff are being blamed for failing to realize that this “man” was pregnant…
“He was rightly classified as a man” in the medical records and appears masculine, Stroumsa [lead author of a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine] said. “But that classification threw us off from considering his actual medical needs.”
Sadly, the “man” ended up losing the baby.
A woman showing up with similar symptoms “would almost surely have been triaged and evaluated more urgently for pregnancy-related problems,” the authors wrote.
You don’t say… Good thing we have these scholarly medical journals to provide these insights.
The real blurred line is the definition of gender versus sex.
The word gender is no longer scientific, therefore it can be chosen. They like to say “gender assigned at birth.” Go figure, doctors and parents usually “assign” a baby the gender that goes along with its sex.
Sex is not a social construct, and it cannot be chosen or changed. It is defined by the sex organs and chromosome make-up of the DNA. Males have XY chromosomes that determine their sex, and females XX.
But if gender can be chosen, then why have it mimick sex? If your sex is male, but your chosen gender is female, why bother superficially altering the look of your sex organs?
If gender is a social construct, then what does it even mean to feel like another gender?
What they mean is they feel like the opposite sex.
The fact is, not much has to do with gender. And a lot has to do with sex. It is confusing– and dishonest– to use the same words (male, female, man, woman, boy, girl) for sex and gender.
Transgender people often run into problems getting gender-specific health care such as cervical cancer screening, birth control and prostate cancer screenings.
This is incorrect. If the word gender no longer has anything to do with science, health screening is sex-specific, and gender has nothing to do with it.
So the biological sex indication should never be changed for medical purposes. The hospital, dealing in the sciences, should continue to label these people with their actual sex, not their gender, in order to deliver the best care.
These people have to do mental gymnastics to keep up the charade. Healthcare professionals are not responsible for failing to understand these deliberately blurred definitions.
If you want people to believe a lie, you can’t get mad when they act accordingly.
