Determining one's own sex or that of another used to be a simple matter. First, there was the matter of appearance, whether a person looked like a male or looked like a female. If appearance produced some uncertainties, one could determine sex by examining a person's birth certificate. If appearance and a birth certificate produced uncertainties, the ultimate, absolute proof of sex was a person's chromosomes; XX marked a female, and XY marked a male. Case closed.
But those old-fashioned simple methods of identifying sex have changed. In fact, relying on those old tried-and-true methods of sex identification qualifies one for opprobrium, with the charge of being homophobic. Today -- independent of appearance, genitalia, birth certificate and chromosomes -- one is a male or female based on how one labels oneself.
This new liberty applies to not only sex but also race. Rachel Dolezal, born Caucasian, chose to be a black person. By becoming a black person, she became the president of the Spokane, Washington, office of the NAACP and an instructor of Africana studies at Eastern Washington University. As far as she is concerned, she's still a black person now, and she has a new legal name, Nkechi Amare Diallo, which means "gift of God" in Ibo. A notable beneficiary of racial fakery is Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who claimed that she was of Cherokee Indian ancestry. That helped her land a $430,000 job for a year at diversity-hungry Harvard University as a professor of law. If Diallo and Warren were not leftist, learned college professors and students would condemn their behavior as racial appropriation.
But let's explore further the idea of freeing oneself from the oppression of biological determinism. There is no better testing ground than America's colleges, which are at the forefront of transgenderism, for seeing how this might work. How tolerant would college administrators be of conservative male students, if they said that they feel womanish, going into the ladies' bathroom and showering facilities? Would these men, claiming to be women, be eligible for tryouts for the women's basketball or field hockey team?
Suppose a college honored the right of its students to free themselves from biological determinism and allowed those with XY chromosomes to play on teams formerly designated as XX teams. I would anticipate a problem competing with other colleges. An unenlightened women's basketball team might refuse to play against a mixed-chromosome team whose starting five consists of 6-foot-6-inch, 200-pound XYers. The NCAA should have a rule stating that refusal to play a mixed-chromosome team leads to forfeiture of the game. It's no different from a team of white players refusing to play another because it has black players.
It's not just college sports that would yield benefits for those escaping biological determinism. What about allowing XYers who claim they are women to compete in the Women's International Boxing Association? Then there are the Olympics. The men's fastest 100-meter speed is 9.58 seconds. The women's record is 10.49 seconds. What about giving XY people a greater chance at winning the gold by permitting them to compete in the women's event? They could qualify by just swearing that they feel womanish or suffer from gender dysphoria.
You say, "There you go, Williams, picking on colleges again!" I applaud the fact that some colleges are taking a leadership role in fighting biological determinism. Barnard College President Debora Spar wrote: "There was no question that Barnard must reaffirm its mission as a college for women. And there was little debate that trans women should be eligible for admission to Barnard." With that announcement, Barnard College joined a growing list of women's colleges -- along with Smith College, Mount Holyoke College, Mills College and Simmons College -- that have updated their admissions policies to take transgender women's applications into consideration. The question that remains is just how much equality these enlightened colleges will permit between XXers and XYers. Will they sexually integrate all of their facilities? Or will they endeavor to develop the morally repugnant policy of "separate but equal"?
One. Determine team makeup solely on the basis of chromosome identity.
Two. Eliminate the Title X requirement for women's sports teams at college, declaring open season on team membership.
Lets see some of these “transgendered” frauds make it in big league sports.
I like Mr. Williams, yes sometimes I disagree with concept structure or verbiage, but overall in agreement a majority of the time.
For your consideration I submit to you the possibility that ‘Liberalism’ and all it facets is in fact an unidentified ‘quantum virus’. As such, no anti-virus is expected in the near future.
Like all plagues humanity has had to endure through-out history, this too ‘shall pass’. However unlike ‘plagues’ of the past, the virus I have come to call ‘Quantum Lunacy-1’ is a morphological condition manifest in the ‘quark’ level assembly of proteins in DNA and produces first; zombies then death.
Protesting is typically one of the first indicators to be observed as a point when the QL-1 strain has attained critical level in the host body. It could be months or even years before the virus had formed a mutated ganglia at the based of the cortex which in turn, chokes blood supply to original cerebral organ allowing it to atrophy.
The first stage of incredible stupidity is observed and signs of such came be seen in the following; lack of employability and sign carrying. Some will go so far as to wear weird suits objectifying that, which they are complaining about others objectifying.
Yes we should just let this virus run its course and do what they do in the ‘Zombie’ movies; sure the mortality rate will be high, but like North Korea, we won’t miss’um.
LOL have a great day, time for another cup
It’s gonna be fun when men who playact as women join a women’s team and beat the pants off the women. Then, what will the transgender wackos say? They can’t say anything, since “gender is just something that is assigned at birth, and can be changed at will.”
Rename it Title X-Y
“I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.”
Liberals are a plague, a virus, a cancer and Trump is the cure.
Unfortunately bathing their DNA in the wrong hormones will epigenetically shorten their lifespan. For hundreds of years in this country people have gone to the bathroom they were anatomically suited to, except for very rare cases. Now suddenly everyone is transgender. Impossible. It’s just something that gets them attention and special rights. Woe to the parents of transgendered two year olds. Insanity and life threatening bad parenting.
1. I haven't read or heard of anything about transgenders having shorter life spans. There simply hasn't been any research done. Well, maybe "British science" will weigh in but there are mostly baloney now.
As for their "transformation" from Pointers to Setters, as the saying goes, or the reverse, I ASSUME that the change would delight them.
2. You got that right.
3. Two-year old transgenders? Haven't heard of any of them yet either. Children start to "choose" identifying their gender somewhere between early (13) to mid (16) teens. That's been around for a long time. It's during those years that the sexual dysfunctional develops.
Maybe there is newer information. I dunno.
Insanity and bad parenting. Nothing new there. THAT has been around for eons as well.
The former is genetic except for one disorder.
The latter is usually learned behavior from what children witness growing up.
Do not concede the negative.
It remains a simple matter - one of the simplest any human ever undertakes.
Using "it used to be" stipulates that something has changed, which is false.
