The following article (here) on transgenderism is a must read. As a witness to the increasing transgenerism societal trend in Asia with even dear people I know, it is good to read professional, lucid voices on this issue. The article highlights a position of mental sanity that is all to often ignored in our politically correct world–wherein to affirm every proclivity and deny every fundamental axiom is the new cardinal virtue.
It is troubling when so many well meaning people today can be so complicit in pushing forward an approach to life that is part and parcel of an unparalleled level of suicidal behavior–after the sex “change” (20x higher)! When we absolve and expunge the distinctions that natural order has given humanity we are not adding to people’s lives in a supportive way–we are ultimately taking away.
We live in a day where there is monumental concern over the genetic altering of crops and the general manipulation of a fragile environment to benefit our needs. “Don’t mess with nature” is the often repeated warning. And when an environmental disaster of some type occurs due to man’s reckless miscalculation of nature’s ways, we are reminded, “You can’t ignore nature.” What I find most odd is that many of the individuals who seek to warn us of the negative implications of manipulating and ignoring nature are the same individuals who advocate that human gender and natural biology can be manipulated without a word of caution or warning given to those who try.
At some point we are going to need to admit to our collective selves that some things just aren’t up for questioning. And when they are, it is a sign of disorder not a signal to RE-order. Peace out!
UPDATE: Another great article that supports the one linked above can be read here. In short the mental health professional argues (with research) that transgenderism is a mental disorder called a “disorder of assumption” similar to other assumption disorders like “anorexia” or “bulimia” in which the individual assumes they are overweight when they are not. Other assumption disorders, like “body-dismorphic” disorder convinces the individual he or she is ugly against all evidence to the contrary.
Great post, and thank you for the article links! Loved this: “The article highlights a position of mental sanity that is all to often ignored in our politically correct world — wherein to affirm every proclivity and deny every fundamental axiom is the new cardinal virtue.” So very true.
Thanks for stopping by William!
