As I sat here on a Thursday afternoon contemplating what topic I wanted to write for my column today, I came across the story of a man who wanted to become a woman and I found myself becoming angry as I read it. The story depicts the hardships of beginning the transition from being a man to becoming a “woman”. Gary Sconce, a science teacher at Yosemite High School, returned to school after beginning the surgery process that it will take to turn Gary into a “woman”.
Now known as Karen Adell Scot, he describes how difficult his transition has been so far. Scot talks about how his wife of 36 years has divorced him because she did not want to be married to a woman (which is completely understandable). Imagine being married to a man for 36 years and having his children just to find out he has lied to you your whole marriage. The psychological pain she had to of endured must have been devastating. His daughter has written him off as being “dead” to her and his son only speaks to him occasionally. Friends and colleagues have also shunned him. He claims that a “vast majority” of his students have accepted him, claiming that one of his female students said; “You know, I really liked Mr. Sconce. He was a lot of fun. But you’re such a better teacher than Mr. Sconce. Because you listen to us.”
The real question is, do the students in his class really accept him, or are they have no choice but to accept him because the issue has been forced down their throats in some PC power play? Scot claims that he feels “alive for the first time” saying, “As a woman in the classroom, I possess tremendous empathy and insight that I didn’t have as a man”. As if somehow taking hormones to grow breasts gave him some new character traits that never existed before? Scot also claims that he is “overwhelmed with pure happiness and joy”.
Well, isn’t that special? While he was off getting surgery to begin to rid himself of his manhood, the gender that God gave him, his family was being ripped apart by selfishness and scandal. No matter what he removes from his body, no matter what he adds to his body, the facts still remain the same, that he will always be male. No amount of medicine, name changes, or the clothes he wears will changes the scientific facts that he is a man and always will be. Society should not be forced to recognize and pander to his lie, either.
That’s really great that he is feeling happy-go-lucky, but what about the family he tore apart? What about the children he created with the woman he made a promise to? What will become of them? When the masses say how brave he is to come out of the shadows and be who he really is, the real talk should be what a selfish, no-good, low-life he is. If he wants to be a tranny that is his prerogative, but don’t destroy a family in the process. Somehow society forgets to mention the real victims in cases like this, his wife and children.
Scot claims that after his transition, he became aware that he “appreciated” his ex-wife and loved her “far more deeply” than before he decided that being a woman was where it’s at. Well, at least his wife is offered a conciliation prize by Scot as he says he understands her difficult decision and he hopes that they still be “friends”. That sure is rich. Lucky her.
