The Futility of Trans

I recently saw a news article (didn’t read it) which mentioned Bruce Jenner’s “transition from male to female.”  While I am thoroughly exhausted with hearing about the Jenner-Kartrashian clan(s), I would like to take this opportunity to issue a rebuttal to the trans movement.  In addition to Jenner’s pending surgical mutilation, I have seen a good deal of other trans issues and individuals popping up in the news.

First of all, there are only two sexes, humanity is sexually dimorphic.  A Y chromosome makes someone male, end of story.  If gender means something other than sex, then it refers to an abstraction which does not exist.  There is only male and female, and this is genetically predetermined, there is no basis in genetics for a third gender.

That being said, there are a number of people claiming to be a man trapped in a woman’s body, or vice versa.  This claim borders on metaphysics, and attempts to take a shortcut around scientific and psychological scrutiny.  On what basis can a woman be trapped in a man’s body?  How does a woman get inside a man’s body in the first place?

If there is a male or female soul trapped in the “wrong body” then that means the soul or spirit cannot be an emergent property of the physical hardware of the body, because the body is male or female.  If the soul or spirit is not an emergent property, then that means someone had to have created the soul and put it there, and this seems strange to me given that the majority of these people reject traditional religions, and therefore have no basis for believing in either a soul or afterlife.  Some of these people will say God made a mistake, but that puts the basis/cause for trans beyond scientific scrutiny, and does not hold up to logical scrutiny as there is no way they can know or confirm that statement.  The only basis behind that claim is subjective personal feelings of discomfort in one’s own skin, and that is not evidence for anything, except perhaps a psychological imbalance.

Some have argued that the brain of a trans male (who wants to be female) bears similarities to a natural female brain, but again, this does not hold up to logical scrutiny.  Neural configurations in the brain are shaped by experiences and behavior.  Things ranging from playing videogames to religious beliefs affect the shape and structure of neural patterns in the brain.  Imitating a woman could also lead to the formation of patterns in a male brain similar to what exists in a female brain, but this does not mean that the man has a female brain or that he was born with one.  A man does not have it in his DNA to form a female brain anymore than he does to form a vagina.

How would someone know that they are a male trapped in a female body or vice versa?  In order to know that, one would have to have advanced knowledge of what it is like to be both genders.  There is no way a woman could ever have empirically experienced what it is like to be a man, therefore, there is no basis for comparison, or claiming that she has knowledge of what it is like to be a man.  That means there is no basis for concluding that one is a man trapped in a woman’s body or vice versa.

I think what this boils down to is thinking that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.  But this is not a fence which can be jumped.  There is nothing which can be done to delete a Y chromosome, or add one, in a fully formed adult.  There is no amount of surgery which can create a functioning female vagina or reproductive system.  There is nothing which can be done to create a functioning male reproductive system either.  I daresay, a woman can never experience a male orgasm, any more than a man can experience a female orgasm.

Now, I am not going to stand in the way of anyone who wants to do this, as it’s none of my business what other people do provided that I am left out of it, but I refuse to participate in the delusion.  I will not refer to men by female pronouns, or to women with male pronouns.  Reality is what it is, and nothing can be done to change it.

I could be described as a libertarian monarchist with religious leanings and sympathies towards anarchy and nationalism. I have realized that a lot of my views are reactionary. Most of the time it's when I see something I don't like that I feel inspired to write. I'm basically like a badger being poked with a stick. I'm fairly ornery when poked, but I don't wish people harm provided that they don't seek to harm me either directly or indirectly. I don't at all care for the left, and I am not at all happy that they are out to destroy my way of life and undermine my freedom. But one of my goals is to spread awareness as much as I can. My Manifesto in Short.: 1. Dejure rights and positive liberty are invalid concepts. Man in his natural state is free. He is free to create what he wants, occupy and defend a territory he exists in, associate with who he wants, wear what he wants, say what he wants, follow whatever religion he wants, and essentially do whatever he pleases. Government is an artificial imposition which requires force both to come into existence and to exist. Therefore, government is not in a position to grant freedom or rights, as those already exist prior to the institution of government. Government can curtail freedoms, but it can never give them. The only fully legitimate function of government is to protect the natural rights of others from being violated by forces which they are incapable of combating, for example, protecting a farmer from the Mongol invasion. Protecting someone from having their feelings hurt is not a legitimate function, as never having hurt feelings is not a natural right. 2. Freedom of association and speech are more important than anyone's feelings. Feelings are subjective, and there is no reason why one person's feelings are any more valid than anyone else's. A law to protect one person's feelings from being hurt is certain to harm another person's, therefore, feelings cannot be a basis for law. My freedoms do not end where another person's feelings begin. 3. Democracy is a failure, and it is predicated on faulty premises. In order for Democracy to work, two criterion must be fulfilled, 1) those who tally the votes must do so honestly, and 2) those who vote must be moral and intelligent enough to make wise and proper decisions. The first premise is impossible to prove, and the second is not true of most people, therefore, Democracy is a questionable endeavor at best, and ultimately doomed to failure. In fact, under the best of circumstances Democracy is mob rule, but aside from that it also opens the door to demagoguery, tribal politics, and lobbying. 4. Communism and Islam are no less evil than Nazism. Communism has killed more people than Nazism, and in fact Stalin alone killed more people than Hitler. Islam has killed, and continues to kill more people than Communism and Nazism together. The only reason why communism and Islam are given a free pass is because Cultural Marxists are in charge of education, the media, and entertainment. Cultural Marxists have decided to institute communism by attacking the culture, and they have recognized Islam as something which they can use as an ally (for the time being). That is why both of those toxic ideologies get a free pass, but really they should not. Hitler worked with both Communists AND Muslims before the allies entered the war, and during the war he continued to work with Muslims. If some guy were to go around in a Nazi uniform and goose-step and Sieg hiel as he walked down the street he would never be able to get a job. His life would be over, and he might even be met with physical violence. If a white guy did it then things would be even worse. However, Muslims are able to walk down our streets wearing their terrorist clothing, their robes and hijabs, which represent thousands of years of slaughter, antisemitism, and persecution of religious and ethnic minorities (not to mention violence against women), and people just let them go. I want a complete and indefinite hiatus on Muslim immigration, and I want us to start repatriating the Muslims that are already here. 5. I utterly reject the concept of the "social contract." I did not ask to exist, nor did I have any control over what part of the world I was born in, which people group I was born into, or what other groups might happen to exist around me. Since my existence is entirely involuntary, I cannot be held responsible for the fact that I exist, nor is my existence sufficient grounds to argue that I owe something to someone else. I do not owe anyone money, goods, or services simply on the basis that I exist or that they exist. 6. Collective guild is a rubbish concept. No one can help what group they are born into, and no one is born owing anyone else anything. Debt is the result of borrowing resources on some level, and having just entered in the world one does not have the capacity to borrow, or really do anything beyond the most basic biological functions. Therefore, the notion that one baby is born owing something to another baby is absurd at best. 7. I thoroughly support Israel. I fully admit to supporting Israel for religious reasons, but if those were not in place I would still support Israel out of enlightened self-interest. Israel fulfills the real world equivalent of the function Gondor serves in Tolkien's Middle Earth. By that I mean they are close to the evil army, and draw a lot of it's attention and focus, and in doing so they protect the west. The difference is, that in Tolkien's world the west does not actively seek to import orcs and other members of the evil army, behind Gondor's back, whereas our moron leaders in real life do constantly import the evil army. Also, Jews are not a monolithic group, There are both left wing and right wing Jews. Those who are on the left are not motivated by religion to do what they do, but by the perverse Marxist ideology which they have adopted in place of their religion.
