The sex-change fad

AT TIMES, I am so perceptive I stun myself.

Last week, I left a comment on someone else’s blog to the effect that sex change, or transgendering in NewSpeak, has become a fad. That inspired another reader to call me a rude word. I am unrepentant. I had no specific evidence, but I keep my ears to the ground on cultural issues, and the ground had told me that transgendering is now a fad.

New ImageAnd, by Jove, a few days later the New York Post published a piece on this very topic, that transgendering has skyrocketed in the Western world over the past 10 years, especially among teenage girls, that demographic most susceptible to fads.

And schools, radical as they now are, push this issue.

Public schools peddle gender ideology with a fervor that would make a preacher blush. — Abigail Shrier in the New York Post.

Did you know that some schools stage assemblies to celebrate “gender journeys”?

Good God Almighty!

Not just schools but social media “gurus” promote this. The teen years are difficult at best, and the considerable angst felt by adolescent girls hitting puberty is now being used by the nuttier elements of society, especially the LGBT people. Between 2016 and 2017, the number of gender surgeries for girls quadrupled in the United States. In the United Kingdom, “gender dysphoria” among teen girls increased 4,400 percent in a decade.

The girls are not coming up with this nincompoopery on their own.

No porch pirates

My latest delivery!

I’M A FUN-LOVING fellow, and last December I had Amazon send a gift to my last wife for her birthday. The fun-loving part is what I sent, a red MAGA cap because she is not a Trump fan in spite of being otherwise quite intelligent when we were married.

I never received any acknowledgement from her, so I do not know if the gift was seized by porch pirates, which I understand is a big problem above the border, or if she simply has lost her sense of humor, a widespread affliction of people who still vote Democrat.

(In Mexico, we don’t have porch pirates because few people have porches accessible from the street. We have high walls like God intended.)

I’m guessing it’s about a 50-50 tossup as to whether porch pirates grabbed my gift, or if she got it, scowled and threw it into the trash. We both were staunch Democrats during our almost two decades together, but I have wised up. I’m hoping to find her #WalkAway video on YouTube in the near future. So many Democrats have seen the light.

We Mexicans have our own version of Amazon — its warehouse is in Mexico City — but we also have Mercado Libre, which is sort of a Latin American Amazon. Both have tons of merchandise, and both offer speedy delivery. I got one this afternoon.


Fad or not?

I left a comment on another blog today, saying the gender-transitioning thing has become a fad. It’s not like hula-hoops or bell-bottom pants, of course, because those fads were harmless fun, but I think it’s a fad nonetheless, a sick, demented one.

News stories of people “transitioning,” which is a nice way of saying they take lots of drugs and have body parts sliced off, have ballooned in recent years. You even read of parents, especially celebrities, assisting their children in the madness.

This was almost unheard of 20 or 30 years ago, but not now. Has the percentage of people who actually feel they’re in the wrong body skyrocketed or is something else going on? Is it a “cool” thing to do, i.e. a fad? I think so.

There are so many nutty notions accepted in Western society these days, e.g. white privilege, ideas based on ignorance, that “transitioning” is just one in a long and growing line.

A woman responded on the other blog that my saying it’s a fad is “disgusting.” I think I am just stating the obvious. If it’s not a fad, what is it?
