The Trials and Tribulations
of the Transgenders

American Thinker, by Peter Skurkiss

Original Article

Posted By:Tishimself, 4/16/2018 7:07:01 AM

In today´s public dialogue, there´s a lot of talk back and forth over the transgender issue. And why not? Transgenderism has been made into a cause celebre by the cultural elite. Many, myself included, view this as part of the ongoing effort by the Left to separate America from God and tradition. For that reason, it is worthwhile to delve a little deeper into the issue than what is normally provided by what is claimed by transgender people themselves.

Transgenderism is a mental disease that gets the PC cover so some greaseball elected rep can squeeze a few votes out of it. In my opinion.,these are gay men who cannot come to terms with the usual gay sex act,therefore they become like women to justify it. I really pity these poor souls. I think surgeons who do these mutilating surgeries are on par with the German experiments in the 1930

A close member of my family is one of these poor souls. While I believe gender dysphoria is a mental disorder, there are some who think there is a causal relationship with fertility drugs that have become so prevalent in recent decades. This child´s conception, coincidentally, was aided by such drugs. I have no idea what causes it.

It´s become a cliché by now, but he felt like he was a girl from a very early age. His loving, Christian parents did all the right things, including getting him extensive therapy. They´ve told him that while they think this is a mistake and they will not condone or finance anything that would alter his body, they will always love and accept him no matter what he does.

This child is a young adult now and has done everything except the surgery. His situation is compounded by the fact that he has a conservative worldview, so he is alienated from just about all groups. But as his parents, what do you do? If your greatest fear is that your child will kill himself if he doesn’t do this drastic thing, yet you also believe it will end in suicide anyway once the new wears off and he realizes he’s still got the same insides, what…..do….you….do? Dismissing it as a mental disorder and saying the world’s gone crazy and these folks are playing God may all be true, but how does that help you deal with today in your own household?

Well said, #2. Sometimes it´s very easy to criticize such things until you see it first hand. I used to be critical of ADHD diagnoses (although not a diagnosis on par with transgenderism) until it hit my family twice. Now we see the pain it causes the patient and relatives.

It is a shame that the author is unfamiliar with the term "intersex" because it is a term which it is important to be familiar with in order to understand the discussion of "transgender".

The term "intersex" refers to a person, or animal, who is born with ambiguous sexual organs. Such an individual might be born with testes and no penis, maybe even with something resembling a vagina. Or they may be born with ovaries and a penis. How frequently this occurs depends on how broadly, or narrowly, one defines this. The most conservative estimate says that 0.018% of the population is intersex. Some more expansive definitions put the number at 0.1%.
The biological condition of being intersex is the origins of the idea of transgender.

Reading about what happened to the individuals in the article whose surgery went awry was scary in the extreme. Colostomy bags and catheters - I´d rather keep my own plumbing thank you.
I do know a man who identifies as a woman. I like him and I pray for him. He is a very troubled soul.

To the liberal progressive Democrats, so called Trangenders are just another identity based constituency group, from which they intend to squeeze as many votes as possible, by facilitating all sorts of gender altering medical treatment for them, especially if they can use government funds allocated for the Department of Defense to pay for that treatment, along with inventing as many new “rights” as possible to address Transgender “needs” to keep them on the liberal progressive political plantation.

Government tells me I am not capable of deciding whether or not to wear a seatbelt but is just fine with me deciding to mutilate myself. Government tells me I’m not capable of deciding whether or not to gamble unless of course the government is the bookie. Government tells me one day it’s just fine to snuff out the life of a baby but literally just days later government tells me what type of baby seat to being the baby home with.
Government says it’s ok for an adult man to expose himself to female children in government facility bath rooms and locker rooms in schools where government is responsible for the children’s safety but hauls the same guy off to jail and puts him on a sex offender list if that happens elsewhere, not under government control.

So the bottom line is, the surgery is rarely 100% successful and the underlying mental condition never disappears. How many of these people are given the truth before surgery?

Here´s a fact: No amount of surgery, cosmetics, lipstick, nail polish or wardrobe changes will make a man a woman or a woman a man. Aint gonna happen in our lifetimes.

I dont know what the solution is, but forcing society to conform to the trans-gendered isn´t the correct solution. We could perhaps be more sympathetic, but dont you dare call me a homophobe because I dont want to sleep with a man who thinks that he´s a girl.

Major names on Wall Street and in the Republican establishment are buying into Mitt Romney´s run for Senate, particularly as Republican lawmakers are looking to him as a future leader within a congressional caucus that is struggling to find its identity. According to first-quarter filings, Romney has been quietly receiving the financial backing of some of the most powerful names and donors in Republican circles, such as former Goldman Sachs CEO and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. The early contributions are not necessarily big, but they indicate a coordinated effort to push the former Massachusetts governor and presidential

There is a kind of modernity to the 19th-century story of New York archbishop John Hughes, in terms of three issues we still have cause to ponder in the United States: namely, the nature of community, the utility of any form of identity politics, and our national embrace of — and, in some quarters now, new skepticism about — multiple cultural identities. Hughes gave thought to the forces that were necessary to forge a tight-knit community, and his answers, if dangerous in our own day, seemed more reasonable to him. He did not share Bishop Benedict Joseph Fenwick’s gentleness when

New Twists Emerge in Leadership
Race to Replace Paul Ryan

Two twists emerged Friday in the leadership race to replace retiring Speaker Paul D. Ryan. House Freedom Caucus founding member Jim Jordan said he’d consider a run while Ryan endorsed Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “There is no speaker’s race right now,” Jordan told reporters. “Paul Ryan is the speaker. If and when there is, I’ve been urged by colleagues to consider that and I am definitely open to that. Right now though the focus has got to be on the next six months, us keeping the majority.” Jordan is a tactical politician. His move is not about actually believing he could win

What would Mr. Dooley make of the latest alarum from the New York Times about how America’s state courts are under “partisan attack”? Mr. Dooley is the fictional bartender who famously proclaimed that “the Supreme Court follows the election returns.” The Times has been set off by what is happening in Wisconsin, Kansas, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. Those are among the states where voters are so upset with judicial decisions that they’re taking to politics to curb the courts. Across the country, the Times warns in an editorial, “state judges are under increasing fire from lawmakers and outside groups angered by their rulings, their power, their tenure or simply their independence.”

GOP devotes $250M to

The Republican National Committee has committed $250 million to a midterm election strategy that has one goal above all else: Preserve the party´s House majority for the rest of President Donald Trump´s first term.Facing the prospect of a blue wave this fall, the White House´s political arm is devoting unprecedented resources to building an army of paid staff and trained volunteers across more than two dozen states. The RNC is taking the fight to Senate Democrats in Republican-leaning states, but much of the national GOP´s resources are focused on protecting Republican-held House seats in states including Florida, California and New

Long before he became speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan had a simple dream: to play Jack Kemp to a future Republican president’s Ronald Reagan. In a cruel twist of fate, Ryan instead had to reprise Kemp’s role with President Trump. Kemp, Ryan’s idol, helped craft the tax cut that eventually became the centerpiece of Reagan’s supply-side economic agenda. From his early years representing a Wisconsin swing district in Congress, Ryan was unveiling sweeping budget and reform plans he hoped would someday become law.

The Republicans’ central Senate super PAC is making a major push to ask its donors to give directly to GOP Senate candidates, including by enlisting top GOP strategist Karl Rove to solicit donations. There is heightened urgency for candidates to step up their fundraising game after Tuesday’s 18th Congressional District race in Pennsylvania, said officials from the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC that is a part of the American Crossroads network of big-money GOP groups founded with help from Rove. GOP outside groups poured heavily into the race — a reliable Republican district that President Trump carried by 20 points in
