The Trials and Tribulations
of the Transgenders

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.

We may not get Beyoncé at the Met Gala this year, but at least we get ... Mitt Romney? Um, yes, the 2012 Republican nominee for President arrived with his wife, Ann Romney, at Anna Wintour´s annual extravaganza. The former Governor of Massachusetts, who is currently running for a Utah senator seat, followed the black tie dress code, stepping out in a tux, while Ann arrived in a collared emerald grown. Romney is one of the most well-known Mormons in the public sphere, so it´s surprising he and Ann didn´t embrace the religious theme with a bit more gusto. At the very least,

Liberal commentators and media figures mocked former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney for saying that “hot dog” is his “favorite meat.” Romney, now running for a Utah Senate seat, made the comment at a dinner organized by his campaign, according to a profile of the candidate by the Washington Examiner. “My favorite meat is hot dog, by the way. That is my favorite meat,” Romney said. “My second favorite meat is hamburger. And, everyone says, oh, don’t you prefer steak? It’s like, I know steaks are great, but I like hot dog best, and I like hamburger next best.” Social media users were quick to jump on Romney for the quote,

Former GOP presidential nominee and current Senate candidate Mitt Romney praised President Trump´s first year in office on Tuesday, saying it was similar to what the first year of a Romney administration would look like. In response to a question from a voter in Utah, Romney seemed to indicate that he largely approved of the policies pursued by the Trump administration during Trump´s first year in the White House, calling it "better than expected," the Washington Examiner reports. “His first year is very similar to things I’d have done my first year,” Romney said.

California Rep. Tony Cárdenas, a junior member of Democratic leadership, is denying through a lawyer allegations of child sex abuse raised in a lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles County. The lawsuit did not name Cárdenas, describing the defendant, John Doe, as “an elected politician in Los Angeles County.” California law prevents the naming of the defendant in court filings for civil cases involving child sex abuse “until there has been a showing of corroborative fact as to the charging allegations against that defendant.” But for reasons not explained in the statement his lawyer Patricia Glaser provided reporters, Cárdenas has decided

Bob Dylan often wrote songs about booze – and now he’ll be peddling some of his own brew. The 76-year-old Nobel laureate, whose songs in his 13 album “Bootleg Series” include the titles “Moonshine” and “Copper Kettle,” says he will debut a line of whiskeys next month. “You don’t always find inspiration,” he said in a statement to The Guardian. “Sometimes it finds you. We wanted to create a collection of American whiskeys that would each tell a story.” Dylan is partnering with liquor entrepreneur Marc Bushala, and their distillery will be located in a former church in Tennessee.

Romney Loses Utah GOP Convention
Derailing Senate Coronation
New York Magzine, by Margaret Hartmann    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/23/2018 4:58:54     Post Reply
Months before 84-year-old Utah senator Orrin Hatch announced his retirement, polls showed Mitt Romney easily winning the race to replace him. When Romney received Hatch’s blessing to enter the contest, and quickly secured an endorsement from President Trump, he had every reason to think that he’d sail to victory. But that’s not how things work for Willard Mitt Romney. Romney was narrowly defeated at Saturday’s Republican state convention, receiving 49 percent of the vote to state Representative Mike Kennedy’s 51 percent. That means he’ll have to face a primary race, like some pleb who wasn’t governor of Massachusetts and the 2012

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

Tim Draper is a rich man, but he understands he doesn´t know it all. His first attempt to divide California into six states made very little sense. So he went out and got some people who are experts on the subject. The result, Cal 3, is a political masterpiece. This could work. When California was admitted to the union in 1850 it had only 92,000 people, most of them scrambling for gold in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. That´s why California´s county lines are so screwy. Los Angeles County now has 10,000,000 people. Alpine County has 1,000. Cal 3 divides the

Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need?

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the
