Posted on 06/09/2014 7:20:21 AM PDT by Gamecock
In fairness, I should mention that Rylands true identity didnt 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. Youll 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, youll find that many of the boys are girls and girls are boys. Its 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 arent taken too far.
If your kid thinks hes 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.
Rylands 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 Rylands boy phase was more than a phase because she eventually started wearing boy suits and boy swimming trunks. Started wearing. Notice the way thats phrased. Youd 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.
Heres the thing about little kids: they dont know what it means to be a boy or a girl. Thats 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. Thats why they have parents. If your daughter truly is confused, if shes really starting to think shes 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 doesnt know what it means to be the opposite sex. How could she rationally choose to become that which she can not comprehend?
She couldnt. She cant. She didnt. Shes a child with a childs brain saying childish things. Her parents took advantage, and now theyre using her to earn the attention and admiration of our progressive society. Harsh? Not nearly harsh enough. This girl is being abused, and were 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 cant 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, shed probably say something about boys being people who wear jeans and who like to play with toy trucks.
Shes a child. She doesnt understand whats going on. She doesnt know any better. But her parents do. And we do. Maybe its 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!!!!
Liberals shouldn’t be allowed to procreate.
This is too much common sense.
Damit...I have sat in my garage for three days now and I’m still not a 1959 split bumper corvette...Oh the humanity...
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”.
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.
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 is....to 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, etc....you 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. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2886557/replies?c=3 I don’t understand how liberals can believe that child abuse in this form is a good thing.
Im 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. Thats a fun game for a few hours, one that Im 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 dont eat ice cream, you know. It only took a little over an hour of things puppies dont do before we heard the last doggie whimper and my son decided hed 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 cant stop them. I will not, however, support the abuse of mentally ill children in the name of political correctness.
I’m an Air Force brat. When I was little I was convinced that I could grow up an be a B-52. Not a pilot, the actual plane.
My parents just ignored it and I then went on to being a cowgirl. Still am.
No, “we’re” not applauding it.....the liberal left is.
But, but, they’re the party of science!
OK. How about focusing on chromosomes, then?
Ya, the party of science. While evil Republicans are against science. I know the drill.
For all the emphasis on science, these liberal researchers do not know what causes homosexuality, or disorders such as these “trans-gender” mental issues.
And of course on global warming, these researchers don’t know what causes changes in earth’s climate and weather. Yet they claim science is settled.
Earth has had many ice ages in history. During the last ice age, Chicago was buried under a mile of ice. All of that ice didn’t melt due to Cro-Magnon man having coal fired power plants. Clearly there are natural cycles at work, which we don’t understand and can’t control. Yet Obama thinks a cap and trade mechanism will stop the rise of the oceans, and allow the planet to heal.
It always comes back to the little pesky chromosomes.
The use of the child’s photo is rather telling. That these people would use their their daughter’s photo to further their agenda is truly tragic.
“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.”
For those who believe in re-incarnation she could be mistakenly thinking she is a boy based on some rememberance of her last lifetime.
Is her hair still short?
I would imagine this is a non-stop attention getter for the mother of this child. And somehow I’d imagine that is exactly what she is seeking.
Never thought I would live to see child abuse (which includes permanent maiming) celebrated and applauded in my country.
I wonder if the mother is a lesbian?
For 50 years plus, they've breathlessly promoting any and every kind of gender confusion - sexual disorder - marriage deformity - erotic jiggery-pokery at all, so long as it's not procreative.
Surely you've noticed?
So, if I suddenly decide that I’m a toaster, I can just put slices of bread in my mouth & spit them back out after a bit? Do I really need a desk job to be a toaster?
They don't accept these as disorders. The celebrate them and want to create more of them. Now that they are in charge there will be more and more programs to take straight kids and teach them to be homosexual. The current guise is to teach that all options are equal and that children should be encouraged to try out "alternatives" before they decide what they are. If you oppose this you are a hater and sanctioned. The culture wars are being lost and Christians and heterosexuals are being persecuted.
I know a lady with 4 kids. She's had two of them labelled somewhere on the autism spectrum. She has another one diagnosed with Pediatric Bi-polar illness--and other diagnoses. From what I have seen of them--they seem pretty freaking normal. The bi-polar kid has some anger issues possibly. Anyhow, these conditions are now her life. It's all she talks about and consumes all her energy and focus. And she sucks up all the oxygen in any room with it.
About 6 months ago, two of my grandsons were visiting for a few days. I always provide them with ample props for their various role-paling activities.
The 5-year-old, of course, likes to run the show, so, at one point, he introduced himself as The King and told me that his 3-year-old brother was The Queen. The younger child, who was just about 37 months at the time, went along with the deal.
Now both of these boys are bruisers, and the younger one especially is about as feminine as a Mac truck, so I had to stifle a giggle.
Idiot parents could jump all over this sort of thing and direct the child quite easily, as children can be brainwashed at that age.
Fortunately, his parents are not idiots and realize that this sort of thing is all perfectly normal.
These days, BTW, he is not to be talked into being the girl anymore and is getting vocal about what is appropriate for a boy. I can remember that his brother went through that same stage.
ewhich made it all the more amusing when about year ago,
And chocolate is poisonous to dogs.
During the last ice age, Chicago was buried under a mile of ice.
...wasn’t that the last time the Cubs played in the World Series...
Youngest insisted that she was a puppy. That lasted until we told her that puppies couldn't have chocolate sundaes.
***Now that they are in charge there will be more and more programs to take straight kids and teach them to be homosexual.***
This is what pedophilia is all about. They can’t procreate, so they recruit. The younger, the better.
When my son was little, he decided he was Gumby. He would only answer to Gumby. I still call him Gumby sometimes even though he is grown.
On the other hand, I have a 7 year old nephew who has always liked girly things - pink things and princesses. He might be gay. If he is, I will still love him as he is.
Freepers, even back on the west texas ranch in the old days, before the Marxists took over, some guys turned out gay.
For me, I try to take people one at a time, as they are.
At that age it’s all about what you can do and how you are treated, not the parts of your body. I can understand a girl wanting to play football, or a boy wanting to dance. Also I can understand a woman wanting to have a high powered job and a man who wants to stay home and take care of children. But what does that have to do with being in the wrong body? You can do any of those things without altering your body or insisting that you are the wrong sex.
When I was 6, I thought puberty meant you changed to the opposite sex. I’m series. I really thought that.
It’s child abuse.
There are lesbian parents in California with a 9-year old boy on sex-change hormones.
Pure child abuse.
He may be playing with girl friends in the neighborhood and enjoy their company or he may be more artistic than most boys. All of us have a spectrum of sexual identity. Some of us are more interested in things that are considered girlie and some in things that are more closely thought to be male oriented.
The thing I would worry about with the artistic boy is he may be more easily preyed upon by homosexual pedophiles than a more aggressive boy.
Sometimes "acting" like the opposite sex is just imagination and looking for attention, which he got because it was hysterical.
He's now a 20-year-old kayaking god with a healthy interest in females.

Oops, edit fragments sometimes fall to the bottom, of the “reply” box, apparently....
In addition to Marxists, this nonsense is a gift to the zero population growth crowd. Convince enough men they are gay or in the “wrong” body, and what do you think will eventually happen to demographics?
