Laverne Cox Is Not a Woman
National Review ^ | 5/30/2014 | Kevin Williamson

Posted on 05/31/2014 9:23:51 AM PDT by mojito

...Regardless of the question of whether he has had his genitals amputated, Cox is not a woman, but an effigy of a woman. Sex is a biological reality, and it is not subordinate to subjective impressions, no matter how intense those impressions are, how sincerely they are held, or how painful they make facing the biological facts of life. No hormone injection or surgical mutilation is sufficient to change that.

Genital amputation and mutilation is the extreme expression of the phenomenon, but it is hardly outside the mainstream of contemporary medical practice. The trans self-conception, if the autobiographical literature is any guide, is partly a feeling that one should be living one’s life as a member of the opposite sex and partly a delusion that one is in fact a member of the opposite sex at some level of reality that transcends the biological facts in question. There are many possible therapeutic responses to that condition, but the offer to amputate healthy organs in the service of a delusional tendency is the moral equivalent of meeting a man who believes he is Jesus and inquiring as to whether his insurance plan covers crucifixion.

Mrs. Garrison: Hello doctor, looks like I need an abortion. [sits on the chair and puts his feet on the stirrups]
Doctor: ...an abortion?
Mrs. Garrison: Yeah, I’ve got one growing inside me. Now, are you gonna scramble its brains or just vacuum it out? [a nurse arrives and her jaw drops] ...If you want you can just scramble it and I’ll queef it out myself.
Doctor: Mmister Garrison-
Mrs. Garrison: [correcting him] Mrs. Garrison.
Doctor: Mmrs. Garrison, you can’t have an abortion.
Mrs. Garrison: Don’t you tell me what I can and can’t do with my body! [gets up, goes to the nurse, and hugs her] A woman has a right to choose!
Doctor: No, I mean you’re physically unable to have an abortion, because you can’t get pregnant.
Mrs. Garrison: But I missed my period.
Doctor: You can’t have periods either. [Mrs. Garrison looks surprised] You had a sex change, Mr. Garrison, but you don’t have ovaries or a womb. You don’t produce eggs.
Mrs. Garrison: [sits down] You mean, I’ll never know what it feels like to have a baby growing inside me and then scramble its brains and vacuum it out?
Doctor: N-that’s right.
Mrs. Garrison: But I paid five thousand dollars to be a woman. This would mean I I’m not really a woman. Ih, I’m just a... a I’m just a guy with a mutilated penis!
Doctor: Basically, yes.
Mrs. Garrison: ...Oh boy, do I feel like a jackass.

The world is abuzz with news that actor Laverne Cox has become the first transgender person to appear on the cover of Time magazine. If I understand the current state of the ever-shifting ethic and rhetoric of transgenderism, that is not quite true: Bradley Manning, whom we are expected now to call Chelsea, beat Cox to the punch by some time. Manning’s announcement of his intention to begin living his life as a woman and to undergo so-called sex-reassignment surgery came after Time’s story, but, given that we are expected to defer to all subjective experience in the matter of gender identity, it could not possibly be the case that Manning is a transgendered person today but was not at the time of the Time cover simply because Time was unaware of the fact, unless the issuance of a press release is now a critical step in the evolutionary process.

Freaking brilliant parody. It is good to take the subjectivists to task for their mangling of reality.

One has either XX chromosomes or XY. Female or male. Nothing in between. What one thinks oneself to be won’t ever change that.

“An effigy of a woman but not a woman”. Well put.

In a true disaster type scenario, these people are walking meltdowns waiting to happen. Imagine a situation leading to a shortage of required drugs and hormones that maintain said transey’s fascade. Now imagine their mental state as their true natural state begins to overcome the artificial suppression via said drugs and hormones. As reality intrudes their mental state becomes more fragile until it collapses entirely. Anyone who doesn’t acknowledged the severity of the impact that hormones make on the human mental condition either isn’t old enough to have experienced life or is in complete denial of reality. The left is always the latter and it poses a severe risk to everyone around them.

The PC mandate in this society forces people to act against their nature. If, for example, someone insisted he were Napoleon, it’s doubtful that journalists, politicians, friends and family would address him as “Your majesty,” much less try to force others to do the same. Rather, help would be offered or recommended.

Yet when someone we are told to call a “transgender” decides he’s a she, all concerned automatically adopt the new pronoun.

And nobody even suspects that maybe its the ones surrounding the lunatic who are the crazier ones in encouraging the delusion.

Abraham Lincoln was right when he said that you could call a dog’s tail a leg, but the animal would still only have four legs.

I saw him in the Netflix series "Orange Is The New Black" which is a pretty interesting show by the way. It's about a woman who was convicted of a crime committed in her youth and now she has to serve prison time - after many years of living a normal life.

She is tossed into this women's prison with all sorts of weird characters, including this guy who gave up his wife and son for this so-called "sexual re-assignment surgery." (He ended up being convicted of stealing money that he used to pay for his surgery.) In the series, he is the stereotypical female impersonator, calling everybody "honey" and obsessed with styling hair and fashioning feminine sandals to wear from materials he collects from around the prison.

Anyway, female impersonators have always been around. It's only recently that they have been championed as "heros" and "role models" and as a result, we now have mentally deranged parents who are feminizing their little boys in order to appear stylish and "with it." I think that is really sick and is child abuse. It's one thing for an adult man to pretend at being a woman - that doesn't bother me. After all, women have been allowed to dress as boys for years now. But when you bring children into the mix, that's just wrong. If my mother had me wear dresses and heels when I was five years old, I'd think I was a girl too. The parents who do this to their children are no different then child abusers in my opinion.

Who is Laverne Cox and why should we care about his/her/its genetalia?

If I’m missing something, I am ready to be informed...

Thanks.

Until then, I just figure that very few of these people really should go chopping their parts off.... better for most of them to just seek out some good quality counseling maybe? Seems to me, anyway....

since gender roles are a “social construct”, what would it mean to be transgendered in a Leftist Utopia? They spend an awful lot of time telling us that men and women are the same, but then turn around and claim that some people are in the wrong bodies. Maybe they have an answer for that apparent contradiction, but I’ve never even heard it attempted.

There are in fact a few syndromes that could be considered "in betweens" But they are very, very rare and are rightly called by science, abnormalities. What the trans-multi-omni gender folks want us to do is to see all this as normal. At the very least they are statistical anomalies and it is highly unlikely that this individual has any of those.

I suppose it would be an insult to point out that those abnormalities also have a high incidence of seriously reduced IQ. Just saying...

With respect, I'm not sure that this is an argument against "sex change" operations - there are plenty of people with genuine diseases who would be in similar trouble; e.g., type I diabetics, or mental ill patients who require antipsychotic medications to function in society.

(Please understand: I am NOT advocating for the atrocity known as gender reassignment. I am only saying that the above argument against it may not be the strongest.)

Sorry to disagree with you, bro, but your average abortionist would turn to the nurse, make sure full payment had been made, and then without further discussion would proceed with the procedure.

Now that’s new to me. Are you saying that IN PRIVATE, Conchita Wurst ( REAL NAME: Tom Neuwirth ) actually acts like a man?

I don’t think so. I think he describes himself as gay and uses the female pronoun to refer to himself.

You make a good point. I think the specific concern is that this is a "manufactured" disaster due to catering to the whims of the mentally ill. Certainly those with disabilities are in bad shape either way, this is exponentially worse given the nature of the types of surgical manipulation involved that cannot be reversed when the hormones and drugs wear off.

I fully agree. I have seen interviews with these mother's of "transgender" children, and they are clearly relishing the attention, and almost seeking to appropriate "gay suffering" by posing as victims of prejudice.

It is no better than Muchausen by Proxy.

Not at all true. 1:500 males is born XXY, or with Klinefelter's syndrome (47XXY), although some XXY identify as females and have been documented as giving birth. 48XXYY is rare, but it occurs naturally.

There are XXX, XXXX, XXXXY, XXXXX, and XYY syndromes. I have personal experience with testing for Turner Syndrome in a child: 45X, 46XdelXp, 46XiXq, or a blend of 45X, 46XX, 46XY, and other cells.

We haven't even touched on hermaphroditism, or 47XXY, 46XX/46XY, or 46XX/47XXY.

I just went on the Atkins diet. Some of those X-factors look like my current T-shirt size.

These combinations are statistical abnormalities which do not affect the strictly defined chromosomal attributes of the normal male or the normal female, nor the wholly unnatural practice of attempted gender reversal, which once again exists mostly in the reverser’s mind & is maintained only with the aid of powerful pharmaceuticals.
