Ever heard of a non-binary gender. Apparently, some feel that they are neither male nor female but rather, that their gender can change over time. Which sounds like gender fluid except that, I guess, the non-binary experience gender change less frequently or often than the gender fluid. I don’t know where the dividing line is between non-binary and gender fluid.
Science of course proves that none of this is possible. The gender of a human is determined by one of two valid chromosome possibilities and it is impossible for those to change at all during a human’s lifespan. Moreover, the few alternative chromosome combinations documented by science result in a variety of irreversible conditions such as Down’s Syndrome.
Does it rub you wrong that the same crowd that always insists upon science, that uses science to back up the notion of climate change, and that would love nothing more than to turn over government itself to committees of scientists to preside over us, willfully rejects science when it comes to gender? I have a friend, a very far left friend, that believes rush hour traffic could be eradicated if a group of scientists simply conducted studies and implemented scientific solutions. This friend of mine will also tell you that there are dozens of different gender combinations to choose from. This isn’t a hypocritical position to hold.
Not when you realize where the non-binary, gender fluid, and all the rest acquire their sense of gender. Where might that be?
Largely from pop culture.
In other words, whatever way Hollywood defines gender at any give moment is sufficient enough for some people to serve as the foundation upon which they are male or female or in between at any given moment in their life.
Perhaps Timothy, a biological male, is all of 19 and for whatever reason is enamored by the dance moves and presence of some diva. Timothy then decides he is a she and please, call her Tabitha. Until Tabitha turns 27 and becomes enthralled with a particular genre of movies featuring a particular representation of men. Tabitha then reverts back to Timothy and please call him Timothy.
The insanity of this is only trumped by the truly scary part of all this.
To live one’s life unwilling to truly be who you are, and instead to allow whatever is deemed trendy, hip, or cool, to serve as the basis for personal definition is scary enough as it is. Most people experience this. Think about high school where the pressure to fit in can be enormous.
Then realize entire corporate entertainment interests – wedded as they are to political elites – are now able to exert that pressure wholesale against everyone.
Those that are strong enough to keep social media and the messaging coming from the entertainment-political complex in its proper place know who they are. And they are comfortable being that man or woman that they are.
Those that aren’t strong enough – and let’s face it, we’ve medicated a generation and a half of kids at this point so it’s no wonder many lack that strength – absorb and internalize every single message they see on social media and follow the party line as delivered via MTV, Samantha Bee, et al. So they aren’t comfortable being anything. Gender, race, orientation, all of it in their lives is subjective as all they’ve ever known in life is subjective. The idea of absolutes is alien to them. The entertainment-political complex has led them to believe that there are no absolutes.
Or to sum it up, we have corporate elites in the entertainment-political complex that have successfully convinced a sizeable number of Americans that the scientifically impossible is possible. They’ve done it by exploiting the most basic of human needs – the need to feel wanted and a part of (and not apart from) whatever is going on. (Facebook executives are on the record admitting they use algorithms that deliberately use this uniquely human characteristic to influence Facebook users).
Barack Obama was keen on lecturing Americans about “who we are” or, “this is not who we are”. So to borrow from our former President, is this who we want to be? Is it?
