June has become known as (Gay) Pride Month. Let your freak flag fly!
But let’s get one thing straight (pun intended): Trans is not a gender, it is a mental illness.
It may be the only mental illness in which the treatment is to convince the patients that their delusions are true and that their physical and biological realities are false.
Recently, there has even been a push to pass legislation to force the sane people of this country to acknowledge the warped reality of the trans- mentally ill. Such madness must stop.
An overwhelming majority of humans (ignoring rare defects) are born either male or female. This is a biological fact established at the cellular level in one’s chromosomes. This fact can never change, no matter how mentally ill one is.
Beyond the cellular level, more overt indicators of human gender exist, the genitalia being most significant. Mutilating one’s genitalia will never convert one to a new gender, no matter how mentally ill one is.
A trans-woman will never mother a child as a woman can, and a trans-man will never father a child as a man can. The misuse of science and technology to create these trans-creatures is just offensive science fiction.
While these trans-people may very well be gay, the “T” in LGBT needs its own separate honorary month: a mental illness month. Get these people the help that they need, but don’t lump them in with perfectly sane gay folks and don’t try to change the sane world around the trans- to reinforce their delusions.
