What do you think happens when parents don’t turn their kids into props to support a political agenda; don’t use them as symbols of virtue-signaling their support for the latest trendy group of deviants claiming oppression; don’t parade them out in hopes that Ellen DeGeneres, Katie Couric, or their local afternoon-TV equivalents will put them on TV; don’t haul them to therapists who’ve consumed the latest ‘peer review’ literature and determined that every little boy who picks up a Barbie doll is ‘transgender’; and don’t flood their bodies with dangerous levels of hormones and toxic chemicals to subvert their young bodies’ natural processes.
Most of the time, they turn into healthy, well-adjusted adults. (i.e. The villains in the social left’s Passion Play.)
I wanted to be a boy. Desperately wanted to be a boy. I thought boys had more fun. I felt like a boy in the way that our society views genders. I liked blue and green more than pink and purple. I remember sitting up as high as I could climb in our huge mulberry tree, bow & arrow in hand, trying to kiss my elbow (a neighbor lady had told me that if I could accomplish this, that I would turn into a boy, which was what I wanted in that moment, as a child, more than anything.)[…]
In this day and age, I probably could have been labled as transgender. They would cut my hair off short (because, all boys have short hair, right?) I would be given “boy” clothes to wear, blue walls in my room rather than pink, and be told to pretend to have a penis, at least until I could have one surgically added. Had this happened, I can not even imagine how traumatic puberty would have been for me.
Fast forward to age 14/15 (late bloomer here) and I finally started going through puberty. I had never really thought of the opposite sex in a sexual manner before. My attraction was immediately, and is to this day, towards men. At the risk of going all Shania on you, I “feel” like a woman. Had my parents decided, at age 5, that I was a boy, I can not imagine the confusion that I would have experienced during my teen years.
Oh, I think I can.
Has anyone noticed that in the Left’s Push to transgenderize everything, they actually end up emphasizing and highlighting stereotypical gender roles? “Oh, little Emma likes to play with trucks. Emma must a be a transgender boy. Little Chad wants to grow his hair long and wear pink; xe must be a Transgender girl.” It’s kind of like how, by insisting that the phrase “Islamic Terrorism” offends all Mohammedans, they are almost tacitly making the case that all Mohammedans support terrorism.
