American Medical Association Says Gender is Imaginary
FrontPage Mag ^ | 06/18/2014 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 06/18/2014 8:53:29 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Medical science is making bold new leaps every day. Not only is there a new medication out that is just like the old medication, except it costs 10 times as much, but the American Medical Association has decided that gender is purely imaginary.

For thousands of years, human ignorance convinced us that there were two genders. Now the AMA says that gender is imaginary. You can be any gender you want. Change gender every week. Or every day.

We’re in Hopechangeistan now. Biology, like economics and military science, are purely imaginary fields. “Science” says so.

In other action Monday, the AMA said transgender people should be able to switch the sex designation on their birth certificates without having sex-change surgery.

Most states make the operations a prerequisite. But the new AMA policy acknowledges that gender identity doesn’t always match a person’s birth anatomy.

An AMA report says identification documents that are consistent with gender identity rather than anatomy is essential to basic social and economic functioning. …

The new policy won praise from the National Center for Transgender Equality.

Since everyone knew that sex change operations didn’t actually switch genders, the AMA has conceded that reality. Transvestites are now transgender. Men in dresses are women.

We are now in a golden age of politically correct science which says that sexual orientation is set genetically at birth,but that gender is fluid and changeable.

And if you claim gender is real, that’s a hate crime.

“Gender” may be imaginary, but one’s sex is a biological fact.

And who are you to say it's not?

This is really pretty simple: Wanna know what gender someone is? Pull down their pants and look at the front of their body, right where the legs meet*.

*Red herring hermaphrodite notwithstanding.

This just makes the term “gender” meaningless and completely irrelevant to anything. The only relevant concern in this regard is one’s biological sex.

Gender is imaginary, so lets integrate all those sports where women are seperate from men (tennis, swimming, etc.). And see how that goes.

What happened to the AMA? See tagline.

Here’s an idea.

Since gender can be decided by whim, so can race.

I strongly urge anyone about to take civil service tests to “finally be able to admit” to being a black woman.

This gives EVERYONE the extra 20 points (10 for being a woman, 10 for being a minority) and it means that you actually have to BE THE BEST CANIDATE in order to be hired.

Rinse and repeat for every single job inquiry that demands racism, I mean, affirmitive action.

It is time for people of strong moral sense and Christian spiritual sensibilities to ignore what so called these so=called science spokesman are saying in terms of social doctrine. It is clear the folks controlling the AMA have lost the ability to conduct rational scientific reasoning and have lost their totally freaking minds.

People of God...set your faces like flints ...it’s going to be a rough ride!

It is forcing radical Marxism on the masses (our children to flip Good and Evil and erase Christianity/concepts of Reason and Faith). The Progressives/Marxists have been doing this for decades-—it just is obvious now.

They started embedding emotions with concepts deliberately to destroy Reason (ever since Edward Bernays) and John Dewey in school indoctrination—which is totally refined and completed with the advent of “Common Core”.

The term “Gender” is a Marxist ploy to remove Traditions, remove Logic and Reason (Natural Law Theory) from the minds of our children-—to create irrational 3rd World “thinkers’ who “feel” everything. It destroys Reason/Rule of Law, and creates a totalitarian State because the only unity comes from the government Laws which are irrational. (Irrational Laws are unconstitutional in a government based on Justice and Rule of Law (Higher Law)-—Just Laws are always based on Reason (Laws of Nature). Remove Reason (Cicero) and you collapse cultures.

Natural Law Theory (Lockean Philosophy) created the Age of Reason and the US Constitution. It created concepts of Justice and Rule of Law—where we are created Free-—we have Free Will and should have NO masters. Individualism comes from Natural Laws and is a result of Christian Theology infusing Natural Law which was done in the 13th century by St. Thomas Aquinas in his Summa.

I agree. Integrate sports and see how many women excel.

Running, swimming, baseball, football, cycling, marathons...

I’m not sure why anyone is surprised. They’ve been pushing “treatments” that have maimed & murdered people for years- pimping for the pharmaceutical industry & stuffing their own filthy pockets.

In defiance of the Hippocratic Oath, they destroy unborn children on demand & are now considering extending the practice to after a child is born.

Maybe this was one of their paybacks for 0bamacare.

identity regarding the wrong biology is a mental disease issue.

There are people who identify as furry animals for matting recreation. Should they be able to change their birth certificate to dog or cat?

How about scifi geeks who want to list their biology as Vulcan (star trek copper based blood species)

This AMA BS is probably from surgeons who are going to make a fortune with this COSMETIC surgery and probably the homosexual wing. (Just another argument showing homosexuality should never have been removed from the DSM)

The AMA is about its coding system. A relatively small % of practicing doctors belong, but have to use its coding system for diagnoses and billing. Maybe the patent office can claim some denigrating factor there and remove the AMA’s ownership of that coding?
