If I had a dollar for every article I’ve seen lately about the eye-popping excesses of transgender ideology, I could comfortably retire right now, even in this time of runaway, Biden-caused inflation. I mean, really, just peruse the headlines on a conservative news website – come to think of it, include left-wing sites as well because they’re proud of what’s being done – and you will see things you simply can’t believe, particularly as it pertains to children. It’s as if the powers-that-be are demonically possessed with the desire to surgically and chemically alter as many innocent children as they can get in their grasp while calling it “gender-affirming” healthcare.
Neither George Orwell nor any other great writer of dystopian literature could have ever dreamed up what has now become an actual reality. I’ve said it before and it bears repeating: There’s never been anything like this in the history of the world and it is pure evil on an unprecedented scale given that virtually every institution in the country is promoting it.
I can’t help but laughingly remember an article I posted a mere five years ago commenting on the then-current excesses of the alphabet people and warning about the future. A fellow Ricochet member basically told me I was a bigot, I was out of my mind, and laughed at the idea that they posed any threat to civilization.
Holy crap! I wonder what that guy is saying now. Or is he still clueless? As they say, “There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.”
In any case, in the intervening five years we have been completely given over to trans madness in what is left of a formerly great country and civilization. Every single institution, including many (former) churches, has signed on to this lunacy. They are literally trying to overthrow God’s created order of male and female – and not just in the here and now, but the entirety of humanity’s past as well. They’re not going to be happy until Genesis gets rewritten such that Adam and Eve are renamed, what, Adam and Steve? No, it’s even worse than that. It could be a couple of trans freakazoids named Peyton and Riley who bravely rebelled against a transphobic god and then created their own secular Marxist alphabet paradise.
Okay, calm down, you may be saying. What do you mean by “the entirety of humanity’s past?”
Well, let’s start with a recent headline: “Gender activists push to bar anthropologists from identifying human remains as ‘male’ or ‘female.’”
Huh? When trans lunacy is unrestrained, this is one of the places it goes. So, let’s say you are an anthropologist or archaeologist and you dig up some 9,000-year-old human bones. One of the things you will typically do is identify the age, race, and sex of the remains. But guess what? In today’s brave new world of gender fluidity and the toppling of all normalcy and reality, if you try and slap a “male” or “female” label on those bones . . . Well, the woke mob is coming after your transphobic ass.
Look, we already knew that much of the American medical establishment, to its eternal shame and damnation, is totally on board with the trans madness even though it defies biological science. So now that science has been this blatantly corrupted, anything goes, and that apparently includes the propagandizing and manipulation of all aspects of our human past. Thus, archaeology and anthropology, two of the last sciences anyone would have ever expected, have now been infected by the “woke mind virus” (as Elon Musk so appropriately deemed it).
So, here’s the new woke archaeology according to one of its practitioners: “My trans+non-binary friends: you might know the argument that the archaeologists who find your bones one day will assign you the same gender as you had at birth . . . Let me tell you why that’s bull.”
Yes, yes, please tell us why! Oh, I see. It’s because we just don’t know what that ancient person might have identified as. Well sure, of course, because transgenderism was a really big thing thousands of years ago because life was so easy and leisurely that people could sit around and contemplate their gender and their gender roles just like they do now in our ivory tower universities.
This is all based on the insanely wishful thinking of alphabetters that every set of bones dug up represents another potential trans person because they believe that trannies are everywhere, literally coming out of the woodwork (not to mention, now, the graves) and always have been, and only now through the contemporary trans movement are they all being gloriously liberated, even posthumously.
Another woke professor informs us that the male-female “duality,” as she calls it, is a concept that was “imposed by Christian colonizers.”
Is there nothing these deranged creatures won’t say? So, we are to believe that before the “Christian colonizers” came to the Americas, all the primitive tribes, from the arctic wastes of the north all the way down to Tierra del Fuego in the south, were happily practicing transgenderism because they didn’t recognize hard and fast gender roles based on biological sex. And then along came “Christian colonizers” who imposed that oppressive “duality” on them. Sure, that’s reasonable!
Ladies and gentlemen, all sarcasm aside, we have a serious problem. These lunatics are everywhere. They have infiltrated every walk of life, every institution, every college campus, every corporation, every government entity, every branch of the military, every field of study, every scientific discipline, and many churches. This insane decadent depravity cannot continue indefinitely without civilizational collapse. Do you understand?
You cannot have all science and medicine, along with everything else, corrupted by crazed narcissistic freaks and expect things to just continue as always. You cannot promote the crazed transgendering of our children without destroying societal stability. And you certainly cannot put your trust in people who would literally cut off your children’s genitals and call it “gender-affirming” healthcare.
In short, you cannot destroy all that is normal, right, beautiful and good and expect what we see nowadays on so many vacuous yard signs: “Everything will be okay.”
Like hell, it will.
Trans ideology was likely hatched in the halls of academia, most of which have morphed into a kind of twilight zone that is impervious to any reality that is considered unpleasant, inconvenient, or unjust. It has subsequently turned into a bizarre social contagion that is being very deliberately pushed on children who otherwise never would have thought of any of this garbage in a million years. In reality, our children are not all closeted trannies waiting to be liberated, but that’s what these gender maniacs seem to believe. And they seem to be in charge of virtually everything these days and appear hell-bent on imposing depravity not only on all of us, but upon everyone who has ever lived.
Well, they’re nothing if not ambitious!
So where does this end? Will it eventually just burn itself out simply because it’s so crazy and unsustainable? Maybe, but that might not occur until after an entire generation of young people has been essentially ruined. If enough young people become self-obsessed, gender-confused knuckleheads, the last thing they’re going to be doing is forming stable relationships and families. Without that, society will crumble due to the resultant psychological and social pathology that will occur on a scale never before seen.
And with transhumanism waiting in the wings, you will likely soon see people transforming themselves into bizarre creatures the likes of which you couldn’t even imagine.
Future historians, archaeologists, scientists, doctors – hell, pretty much everybody – will look back on all of this with about as much favorability as we currently have of alchemy, leeching, and witch burning. But for now, the lunatics are running the asylum and what makes them all the more destructive is they are convinced that they are the most enlightened and compassionate people who have ever lived. That being the case, they can’t be rationally debated or talked out of this.
The only way to stop this crazy evil movement is for the rest of us to mercilessly crush it. That means relentlessly exposing it, shining a light on it, mocking it, and saying no, hell no, no way, no how. Otherwise, if the trans transgressors have their way with our children and young adults, we’re finished.Published in
