This Poor Child is Confused, not ‘Transgendered.’
The Matt Walsh Blog ^ | Matt Walsh

Posted on 06/09/2014 7:20:21 AM PDT by Gamecock

In fairness, I should mention that Ryland’s ‘true identity’ didn’t just reveal itself through her taste in toys and clothes. She came out and said she was a boy. She said it when she was two-years-old.

She made fantastic and nonsensical claims about being something other than what she really is — much like, for instance, every single other toddler in the history of the world.

Walk into a room of toddlers and take a poll. You’ll soon discover that you are actually — according to the self-reported data from two and three-year-olds — surrounded by lions, dinosaurs, aliens, princesses, superheroes, and all manner of other mythical concoctions.

And, yes, you’ll find that many of the boys are girls and girls are boys. It’s extraordinarily common for kids that age to ‘self-identify’ as the opposite sex.

In most cases, you let them use their imagination and have their fun, but you make sure to offer them the proper guidance so that these games aren’t taken too far.

If your kid thinks he’s a bird, let him pretend. But the moment he tries to jump out of a window or poop on your car windshield, it might be time to intervene.

Ryland’s parents took a silly thing that a toddler said and indulged it. They fed it. They snatched it out of fantasyland and made it real. Before long, poor Ryland was in the throes of a full-on identiy crisis.

They say that Ryland’s “boy phase” was more than a phase because she eventually started wearing boy suits and boy swimming trunks. “Started wearing.” Notice the way that’s phrased. You’d think she got a job, earned a paycheck, then drove to the store herself and bought her own outfits. In reality, however, one can assume that she only started wearing boy clothes because her parents started dressing her in boy clothes.

Here’s the thing about little kids: they don’t know what it means to be a boy or a girl. That’s why you have to tell them. You have to guide them. You have to show them. They are ignorant of many things. They are helpless in many ways. That’s why they have parents. If your daughter truly is confused, if she’s really starting to think she’s a boy, then you are only going to enforce her delusions when you go out of your way to put her in elaborate outfits specifically designed to foster those confusions.

Ryland — at the age of two, and three, and four, and five, and six — is much too young to even remotely grasp what it means to be a girl. How could she be in a position to reject that which she does not understand? She certainly doesn’t know what it means to ‘be’ the opposite sex. How could she rationally choose to become that which she can not comprehend?

She couldn’t. She can’t. She didn’t. She’s a child with a child’s brain saying childish things. Her parents took advantage, and now they’re using her to earn the attention and admiration of our progressive society. Harsh? Not nearly harsh enough. This girl is being abused, and we’re all watching and applauding. You know what they could have done? When their two-year-old daughter called herself a boy, they could have responded with one simple question: “what is a boy?”

If you cannot define it then you certainly can’t decide that you should be it. I guarantee that neither two-year-old Ryland nor five-year-old Ryland could even begin to answer that question. Being an innocent child, she’d probably say something about boys being people who wear jeans and who like to play with toy trucks.

She’s a child. She doesn’t understand what’s going on. She doesn’t know any better. But her parents do. And we do. Maybe it’s time we speak up.

My youngest, at age 1.5 started saying she was a boy. I asked her why she said that and she said she had a “boy head.”

By that I think she meant her hair was short, as was the hair of boys. You see, her hair came in very slowly and was as short as that of the boys next door.

We didn’t freak out. We didn’t play into it, we just kept referring to her as a girl. It all passed withing a couple of weeks.

She has no “gender identity” issues now.

I read about that child’s story. The parents are clearly enablers.

The liberal view is that we are “hetero-normative”, and that we are too focused on “genitalia”.

Remember, we now live in a world in which Facebook says that there are 56 different genders. Restricted to male and female??? Preposterous!!!!

To a hammer the world looks like a nail. To somebody who is enthralled with the “glamor” of being gay the whole world turns on the subject. I think there was a character on South Park who kept coming out. (I never watched the show but somebody mentioned it.) I asked a gay guy once why they acted the way they did and his response was to prance with his fingers flapping over his head while he yelled, “LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME.”

Your story is actually very cute. I’m melting here.

Children are so guileless and innocently honest. It takes evil adults to impose their own guile onto this innocence.

The clarity here is stunning and rare for the world we now live in. I have a niece who fell in love with being a cat. For a long while she liked to pretend she was a cat. All fun and games and no one ever bought her a box to poop in. But I’m sure an ‘experimenter’ could have kept and nurtured that delusion to catastrophic (only a small pun intended) results.

Once a person decide that word-manipulation is much easier on his/her/its mind than fact-based science, a Liberal is “born”.

Our baby was Dad's little shadow until abut age 9. She followed me around, wanted her own tool belt and real tools for gift occasions, none of that plastic stuff.

Since she was out third daughter of three children, it was nice while it lasted. She cut hair short (if we wouldn't do it, she did), wore boy clothes and prided herself on the ability to do sports and repairs better than her male peers.

It all ended one day when some guy remarked on what a cute little guy she was. She pulled off her baseball cap, stomped on it and stalked off stating "I'm a girl."

Of course, I retrieved it and handed it back to her later when she'd gotten out of her funk. She was actually happy to have it back. A few days later that same summer, I was coaching her on the intricacies of throwing a baseball. She was usually a quick study, but kept throwing from the elbow rather than the shoulder. In frustration, I finally said only girls throw from the elbow. She took off her baseball cap for the last time and stalked off stating "Daddy, I am a girl!"

Today, she is the proud mother of two very active little grandsons.

My daughter thought she was a butterfly. She was going to be a big butterfly when she grew up. I am glad to say she is a happy healthy 14 year old GIRL.

When my daughter was very tiny, she was adamant that her name was Lisa and she was 16 years old. She wouldn’t even respond to her real name, only say that her name was Lisa. So we went along with that for the several weeks it took to get over it. Of course, now she doesn’t even remember being “Lisa” except for the stories I tell her. I didn’t rush out and change her birth certificate to “Lisa” and let her drive and date because she was “16 years old.”

This is abuse and the parents need psychiatric help.

It is radical Marxism-—all the “gender” junk destroy the Natural Family. The Worldview of children has to be destroyed in childhood....that there is “male and female’ has to be erased— to create a utopia, where there is no individual differences, and people are interchangeable and think only ONE way (drones of the State “happy” slaves (with no Truth (critical thinking)/God).

Marxism is irrational and is based on Lies (no god) and the artificial environment (utopia) is irrational (no unique characteristics/differences) and impossible if children can actually think critically. To do that they have to understand Natural Law Theory (Reason/Logic based on Facts).

Our Constitution is based on Natural Law Theory (Lockean) and as such, children have to be able to understand Reality-—Laws of Nature and understand the Nature of Man. (The reason we had the Age of Reason is because of Christianity merging with Natural Law Theory in 13th Century-—that Classical Thought merging with the Bible. (Reason plus Faith). It created the US Constitution and our Justice System/Common Law and understanding of Good and Evil which became our “Justice” System.)

To destroy Western Civ Marxists knew they have to destroy the Natural Family and Christianity (Remove Reason and Faith). Get mothers in the work force to be controlled and taxed and children can be brain washed by Marxist curricula (public schools).

This gender stuff is to erase an understanding of human nature and God and destroy Traditions (mother and father)-—destroy Reason in children so they believe any irrational concept like “Snow is Black”. (That is the Wundtian/Bertrand Russell curricula the public schools use—conditioning so that children will believe any irrational thing the government puts out....that is why Liberals seem mentally ill.....Facts don’t matter with “cognitive dissonance” which is the reason for public schools.

Dumb, ignorant children where there can be no critical thinking for their basis of understanding Reality—doesn’t exit....TV and indoctrination into girls can be boys, can have two daddies-—is to destroy Reason and Logic.

It is like the Reality of Afghani harem boys. When those boys are adults—they will only desire little boys and men for sex regardless of Natural Law—the emotions/feelings are embedded and taught (as all behaviors) and they will hate women and be unable to interact with females. The revulsion is taught and inculcated by culture and relationships in early childhood. There is no critical “thinking” with Afghanis. They are programmed.

CBS Sunday Morning yesterday.....their lead story was about trans-gendered kids.

I had to turn off the TV, because I was getting ready to eat breakfast and I didn’t want to have projectile vomiting.

Münchausen syndrome taken to a new, perverted level by the “parents”. IMHO.

I’ve had a similar experience, as I mentioned a few times before on FR. I don’t understand how liberals can believe that child abuse in this form is a good thing.

I’m not willing to stipulate, not even for the sake of argument, that the proper treatment for a mental illness is to reinforce the delusion. I had a son who decided at a young age that he was a puppy. That’s a fun game for a few hours, one that I’m sure many parents have dealt with, but it lasted more than a day. Rather than getting him a collar and a doggy dish and being completely supportive of a permanent identity change, perhaps even demanding that others call my son “Spot”, I got the other kids ice cream. “Puppies don’t eat ice cream, you know.” It only took a little over an hour of things puppies don’t do before we heard the last doggie whimper and my son decided he’d rather be a boy.

I would not amputate the leg of a child with “body image identity disorder” (a real disorder in which people want a body part removed). Any decent person and even many democrats would recognize amputation in that context as child abuse and medical malpractice. Why do the genitals get special politically correct treatment when it comes to this mental illness? As an adult, I recognize the difference between an adult and a child, and I would not permit someone under 18 to make irreversible decisions or even long-term decisions of this nature about their own lives. If there are psychologists, psychiatrists, and surgeons sick enough to mutilate adults with this mental illness, or to support that mutilation, I can’t stop them. I will not, however, support the abuse of mentally ill children in the name of political correctness.

Fortunately, their emphasis on so called “gender identity” will radically decrease the probability of procreation.
