no point arguing against the ideologically driven

Well the dogmatically-driven idiots over at Breibart News are at it again.

Telling us that the facts point to transgenderism being rooted in an ideological movement instead of in science. Well why didn't they tell me that when I was a kid I know it would have made all the difference to me.

Clearly these people are not interested in facts. Also where did they get the "born in the wrong body" line for I haven't heard any trans person I know utter those words.

If these right-wingers had done even some basic homework they would know that gender dysphoria does not respond to psychotherapy and, I don't know about you, but I am not mentally ill.

But this article is about ideology driving fact creation instead of the other way around.

I take it these people would rather have us try conversion therapy on these kids and then witness its utter ineffectiveness. Or perhaps they would prefer we shoot transgender people like horses with a broken leg?

It should be obvious to any thinking person that if this were an ideological movement, you wouldn't have transgender people showing up in every single country in the world and independent of race or religion. But then this is what happens when you are blinded by a belief system and won't be disturbed by data that contradicts it.

Once again we have people with no intimate knowledge of a subject talking out of their rear ends.

But then what else is new...

  1. Hi Joanna,

    Indeed, the Breitbarts of the world continue to stir up fear, hate, and prejudice to support their otherwise unsupportable positions. We see this even today, some 50 odd years since blacks stood their ground and the KKK and others in the US and around the world such as South Africa continue their racist and cruel and murderous programs.

    I do think that 2016 was a great year for trans people. Below is a link to an article that provides a summary. Will 2017 be as good? Impossible to say especially with Trump/Pence's inauguration. We will all try...

  2. We must be vigilant Emma and fight prejudice everywhere and at all levels. But yes having dumb and dumber in the White House is going to be frightening...
