It truly broke my heart and made me enraged at the same time to read about the transsexual “man” who molested and raped a ten-year-old girl recently in a friend’s home! The child’s mother was actually friends with this transgender “man.” I have nothing against having a friendship with a trans person. I am friends with a couple of them myself, but I have a serious problem when adults are so dumbed down that they think they have to engage in potentially harmful relationships when kids are in the picture.
I realize that this “man” could have seemed harmless and nobody might have even realized he would rape a child, but if we’d at least admit that when a person is denying his or her body parts and DNA, this is cause for concern. Why can’t adults learn to “error” on the side of safety and well-being of children? This seems so incredibly simple to figure out and it is deeply concerning that we can’t draw this simple conclusion. Since when are we so sensitive that we can’t handle simple disagreements in our personal relationships?
Then we wonder why the use of prescription “mood altering” drugs are so prevalent in America today. It is not uncommon anymore or shameful for that matter to admit we are taking an anti-depressant or anti-anxiety medicine. I fully realize that some really need the meds, but I suspect we are overusing this option, but I digress.
In a nation where political correctness reigns one of the consequences will surely be a population of “dumbed down” adults that are too afraid to speak up because they know they will be a target for ridicule. An adult that chooses to engage in denying reality should be of great concern to any mentally healthy adult. Isn’t that what transgenders do? Aren’t they in reality… Reality deniers? This seems quite obvious to me and I don’t mind stating the obvious. Reality needs no explanation, but yet somehow some feel guilty about speaking out about it?
Imagine if this was your child. Obviously, the mom of this child is a bit confused herself, but hanging out with a transgender friend in a safe setting amongst other adults that choose to be there is quite different than bringing that person into your home when you know that “her” DNA contains a “Y” chromosome!!!! If we choose to entertain our friend in our home, we must take precaution when a child is present. Make decisions in a cautious manner. How hard is that if we truly realize that a person who denies their very reality, will be more risk to manifest other potentially harmful behavior? We are required to protect our children.
Nobody is helping any transgender by helping them to “normalize” their abnormal behavior. There is no need to get ignorant with them either, just simply stop engaging and celebrating their mental illness. Don’t we train children by encouraging the behaviors we want them to continue and then we “discourage” the behaviors we want to diminish? How will these trans folk ever even realize they need help if they don’t “feel the pain.” That’s when folks get help. They don’t feel a need, there will be no attempt to find a solution!
This transgender celebration is growing right in my own neighborhood. Last summer my daughter was invited to go hear a “library talk” that her girlfriend who now considers herself a “boy” was giving to help everyone understand her. My daughter didn’t go, but she asked me what to say. My answer was just telling her “no.” If she asked why, simply say “you are my friend, whether I go or not, I don’t want to go.” If she persists, simply tell her that you are quite happy being a heterosexual female and change the subject.
What made me angry about the situation was not that this girl, who I also love, decided to be a transgender, but the fact that they are bolder about expressing who they are and the heterosexual population seems to be almost ashamed to say “I am actually happy being heterosexual! No thanks.”
Heterosexuality has reality on ITS side… it’s an obvious FACT. Heterosexuality is stigmatized now and, in reality, heterosexuality is still the majority! We now accept without question non-sensical scenarios that clearly deny REALITY and then we call it LOVE? Children are in serious danger when adults can’t get this straight and fight for and protect them. My heart breaks for that precious ten-year-old’s life that is forever changed because of adult ignorance. Reality is simply reality.
