(Natural
News
) The same cultural “progressivism” that achieved gay
acceptance, gay rights and gay marriage is now demanding social
acceptance of transgenderism by equating the two. The same insults
now being hurled at transgenders, they say, were once hurled at
gays. Being gay or transgender is a “choice,” they say, and that
choice should be left up to the individual.

What could possibly be wrong with that argument?

Plenty, it turns out. Being gay is a choice in the
gender of your partners
, but it does not dissociate your
identity from your biological reality. Gay men know they are men,
and gay women know they are women. A choice of partners is
preference, not a rejection of the physical self as
born.

Furthermore, a person who is gay does not make demands upon
society to recognize them for something they are not.
Transgenderism, on the other hand, asserts social
demands that society “pretend” the person is something they
aren’t
… namely, pretending that a man is a woman or that a
woman is a man. The social “normalization” of transgenderism, in
other words, is effectively a strong social mind trap that DEMANDS
people abandon reason and agree to participate in a popular social
delusion fueled by peer pressure. The Emperor’s robes are
beautiful, are they not?

To summarize so far, then, being gay is simply a matter of
preference, and it does not place irrational demands on the rest of
society. Being gay is a personal, private choice. But the
normalization of transgenderism asserts a “social distortion” that
demands the rest of society abandon reality and play along with
make believe delusion that isn’t
rooted in biological reality.

How to project an individual disorder to society at large and
then demand the delusion be shared by all

This is where we discover the first harm of the normalization of
transgenderism. Instead of encouraging the person with a
dissociative disorder to seek compassionate treatment or
psychological counseling, we are projecting their disorder to the
rest of society and demanding that everyone share in their
delusion. This is ultimately harmful to the person suffering from
their dissociative identity disorder. You don’t help people heal
and integrate by projecting their fractured self-image to the
entire world… you help them seek treatment or counseling so they
can re-integrate and become whole. (This is why even the World
Health Organization considers transgenderism to be a mental
disorder.)

Even worse is the precedent of social acceptance of the
delusions transgenderism demands we all accept as real. The social
“contract” underlying transgenderism is that every person in
society should pretend that someone is something they clearly are
not by any objective definition. By agreeing to participating in
this childish game of make believe, we now open the door to the
next stage of lunacy: Transanimalism.

Transanimalism is the next stage: No, you are not a Tibetan
Snow Leopard

In transanimalism, people believe they are great cats, or bears
or other animals. For those afflicted with transanimalism, their
self-image is just as convincing and determined as those who claim
to be transgenders. Yet if we follow the same logic of social
projection now demanded by the transgender community, we must all
agree to regard transanimalists as truly being great cats, bears,
dogs, owls or whatever delusion they are manifesting at the
moment.

Effectively, we must play along with their
delusions in order to be politically correct
 rather
than telling them the far simpler truth: “You are not a great cat.
You are a human being. Get some help.”

In fact, the widespread unwillingness to tell people a simple
truth that might be “offensive” in some way is characteristic of
the weak-mindedness of the progressive Left, sometimes called
“snowflakes.” Telling someone an obvious and simple truth they
might not want to hear — “You are not a Tibetan Snow Leopard” — is
now regarded as a sort of hate
crime
 that earns you can accusation of  "nofollow" target="_blank" href="/r2/?url=http://intolerance.news/" target=
"_blank">intolerance, bigotry and even racism
. (Yes, the people
who shout “racism” these days don’t even know what it means.
Essentially a “racist” is anyone who wins an argument with the
progressive Left.)

The assertion is that because the truth “hurts” someone’s
fractured, distorted self-image, it should be shamed in a
“tolerant” society. Yet, if tolerance is defined as the popular
furtherance of mental delusion and derision, then the pop culture
definition of “tolerance” is highly suspect. Were the townspeople
“tolerant” when they glorified the wondrous robes of a naked
Emperor as he walked down the street, acting out his shared
delusion? No, they were irrational and stupid. Only the innocent
child, unschooled in the mental contortions of political
correctness, dared shout, “The Emperor has no clothes!”

Today, I am shouting a lengthier retort: “Transgenderism is a
mental disorder that requires compassionate treatment to help its
victims face the truth and re-integrate to become whole!”

Celebrating transgendered males who pretend to be
females is an insult to real women

We do not help them by sharing in their delusions and false
fantasies. In fact, by celebrating transgenderism, we
insult the great women of our society who are real women, not
“pretend” women
.

Case in point: When a popular women’s fashion magazine named
Bruce Jenner (pretending to be “Caitlyn Jenner”) “Woman of the
Year,” it insulted all genuine women. The message was offensive and
stupid: “This MAN is better at being a woman than all you real
women!”

Somehow, the magazine couldn’t find a single woman who was
better at being a woman than Bruce Jenner, a “pretend” woman. While
Bruce may be a very endearing, kind and courageous person, he is
not a biological woman. Pretending that he’s a woman is nothing
more than an exercise in a shared social
delusion
 that reflects the rising mental illness
across “progressive” society at large.

To be socially accepted in a delusional society, you must be
fluent in whatever delusions are demanded at the moment

According to “progressive” society, social acceptance is no
longer based on your connection with reality but rather
on your fluency in the latest popular
delusions
.

To be celebrated in a delusional society, you must make sure
that your own delusions match those of the progressive crowd, whose
delusions are constantly shifting, by the way. SHAME is cast upon
those whose delusions are a mismatch with the popular delusions,
meaning it is almost impossible to avoid shame because no person
can correctly predict how the delusions may shift from day to day.
The perfect example of the lunacy of all this is found
in  "http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-02-18-language-police-transgender-cover-girl-model-being-called-racist-for-saying-ebola-is-in-africa.html"
target="_blank">this news of a transgender-looking Cover Girl
model
 who was berated by the progressive Left for daring
to tweet that Ebola might be found in Africa.

James Charles is a transgender Cover Girl model described by
Yahoo! News as “A 16-year-old with vision beyond his years” (note
the celebratory accolades now showered upon a boy who does nothing
more than wear women’s makeup). Here a photo of this latest
progressive “sensation,” in case you’re wondering what’s popular at
this particular moment with the delusional progressive crowd:

"http://www.naturalnews.com/gallery/articles/james_charles_covergirl_cover_boy.jpg"
style="border:none" />

As described in  "http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-02-18-language-police-transgender-cover-girl-model-being-called-racist-for-saying-ebola-is-in-africa.html"
target="_blank">this Natural News article
, James Charles made
the mistake of tweeting something that was factually correct, but
wildly unpopular. On a trip to Africa, he tweeted “I can’t believe
we’re going to Africa today omg what if we get Ebola?”

The immediate response from the “progressive” (i.e. delusional)
community was that James’ tweet
was racist because it supposed that Africans are
full of disease. James never asserted that, of course, and it is
factually true that Ebola originated in Africa and its worst
outbreaks take place in Africa.

But for tweeting something based on factual (but unpopular)
truth, James Charles was eviscerated by the same community of
“progressives” who follow James Charles precisely because they
subscribe to the delusional fantasy that James Charles pretends to
be a woman.

So what did James Charles do to get back into the good graces of
the delusional progressive community? Naturally, he had to delete
his factually correct tweet and issue a detailed apology containing
all the progressive keywords for personal
shame
 that are currently accepted by the delusional
progressive community.

As you can see in his tweet below, he expresses how he is
“extremely sorry” and he is merely on an “educational trip” and
he’s incredibly ignorant but is “eager to learn” why his tweet was
so “offensive and degrading,” etc.

He even goes into a massive, psychologically fractured rant
of self shame, claiming, “As a white cis
male, I recognize my privilege and would never want to take that
for granted…” thereby affirming he is fully fluent in
the shame du jour of the pop culture moment,
realizing that he is biologically Caucasian but impersonating a
biological female in the process. (Why does he not simply assert
that he is black and thereby cast aside his white privilege?)

This is why James Charles is the perfect encapsulation of
everything that’s wrong with the social normalization of
transgenderism. Like all misguided youth who follow his path, James
is living in a delusional world of make
believe
 where he is constantly tormented by guilt and
shame for not being progressive enough because of his biological
“curse” of being a white male in an intolerant, delusional
society.

What even James Charles apparently does not realize is that the
same irrational, detached delusions underpinning transgenderism can
simply be invoked to claim any biological variation desired at the
moment. James Charles could have claimed he was a “40-year-old
black woman” and shamed his accusers for attacking him because he’s
black. Perhaps they are racists, you see. Once you agree to accept
delusional thinking as reality, there’s no limit to where the
“progressive” Left can take it. Tomorrow we might discover James
Charles claiming he is 100 years old and is the “oldest living
Cover Girl model” who also has the genitalia of a Hobbit. There’s
no limit to the insanity of the possibilities, you see.

When there is no anchor to reality, any delusion can be pushed
onto a gullible, weak-willed and compliant society of socially
terrified sheeple

The normalization of transgenderism, you see, is merely one
symptom in a much larger ecosystem of delusions, self-shaming and
mental illness that now define “progressivism” and political
correctness. No individual can correctly navigate the insanity of
it all — not even a self-loathing Cover Girl BOY model — because
the minefield of political correctness has no anchor to
reality.

There is no objective point of reference for any of it. Mere
statements of provable fact are now “intolerant,” and social
acceptance can only be garnered through a tireless, exhausting
study of social media’s latest delusion trends so that you can keep
up with the correct terms, shame, guilt and delusions that are
demanded at the moment. Yet tomorrow, they will morph into a
completely different set of delusions that you must learn anew,
often by haplessly stepping onto P.C. landmines you never knew
existed (and thus earning all the expected shame while issuing
self-loathing apologies for not being up to speed on the delusions
of the day).

“Progressivism” has now reach the point of sheer lunacy where a
well-meaning, well-informed and intelligent individual seeking to
engage in basic conversation with someone else will be viciously
slandered as “intolerant” and “non-inclusive” for almost anything
they say. Social acceptance is only to be rewarded to those who
open their comments with the appropriate shame, guilt and admission
of “ignorance” (if they’re white or male), or social justice and
automatic truth (if they’re any other color), or virtue signaling
(if they’re too rich and still want to be accepted by those who are
not wealthy).

The important realization in all this is that we do
not help anyone in society by participating in this labyrinth of
delusional thinking
 and attempted social acceptance
among the deluded. If we ever hope to function as a civil, rational
and forward-thinking society, we must return to reality and have
the real courage to speak the truth even if someone
decides to be offended by it
.

Transgenderism is the belief that 5+3 =
10

The normalization of transgenderism is a surrender
to the convenience of conformity
. It is a form of
weak-willed obedience to the demands of the insane. It is the utter
admission of the surrender of one’s perceptions, cognition and
reason. After all, the same system of “progressivism” that now
demands you see a male but call him a female will one day demand
you see 5 + 3 and answer it as
“TEN!”

Where reason is utterly abandoned —
even shamed — all of society suffers from the
resulting madness.

For all these reasons, the normalization of transgenderism
should be vehemently rejected by all rational
people
 and condemned as harmful to society at large.
We do not move forward as a civilization by engaging in the
irrational adoration of ever-shifting delusions of madness. We move
forward by facing reality, solving problems and helping those
around us face their realities (and solve their problems, too).

    Not sure if you were referring to Santa clause or not, same delusion…

    I really don’t care what happens with consenting adults…I do not want to hear about personal fetishes or any other sexual deviant behavior …. I simply do not care

    But constantly throwing in my face sexual deviant behavior is disgusting….what ever happened to I don’t kiss and tell…?

    being gay is no more a choice than is being straight – EVERY mammalian species studied by humanity has a homosexual population, without exception

    BUT,, less than 2% of the human population are NOT straight,,,, also, less than 2% of the population are murderers, rapists, pedophiles, etc etc

    as long as gays are not harming others, who gives a flying fuck what they do in their bedrooms? as for the rest (mardi gras, gay marriage etc), it is nothing more than a politicized propaganda agenda – trannies represent an even smaller portion of the population

    imho, perversion (no matter which variety) are PERVERSIONS, not the norm

    i think homosexuality and transgenderism have been deliberately “normalised” in order to groom the population towards accepting pedophelia as “normal” – as another form of “love” – in all instances i say “what a crock of shit”

    sexuality is about SEX, not love – love is about love, not sex (this is why we do not have sex with the people we love most,, parents, siblings, extended family, friends, etc – this is also why so many people have sex with those for whom they bear NO love, merely lust)

    sick people require treatment, not acceptance, no mater the illness – time to treat the problem rather than accepting it

    Much as I will not go to churches and reject the apostate modern general umbrella of “Christiainity”, I am convinced more and more every day that the bible is a very accurate prophetic book that is indeed Gods word.

    A large part of the reason for me believing so is how the world is diving into extreme deviancy.

    Sexual practices are choices. Lifestyles that glorify specific sexual practices are choices as well.

    “Gay” is a poor choice of euphemisms for that particular style of perversion, “gay” means happy and I can’t say I’ve ever met a homo who was anything but malcontent.

    And being opposed to specific behavior practices is not a “phobia”.
    I don’t fear people because of their deviance.
    I might disagree with the behavior, but that is not a fear, any more than disagreeing with the behavior of thieves makes me a “kleptophobe”.

    Also, people know deep down inside what is right and what is not. Nobody is perfect. But I refuse to glorify things about myself that are not perfect. I sowed my wild oats when I was young, but I didn’t try to convince others to accept my practices and I sure as hell didn’t feel to have a parade about it.

    Forcing society to pretend to justify deviant behavior is not going to delete peoples self awareness of what they know to be normal and not normal.
