The Morning Rant

The data are stark: “sex change” surgery leads to awful outcomes. The victims of these surgeries attempt suicide at an absolutely appalling rate.

There are no other body dysmorphic disorder issues that are celebrated by a certain small and deeply deluded facet of society. A teenaged girl who looks in the mirror and sees a 200 pound fatty instead of the reality: a 100 pound girl who needs to put on 20 pounds just to be considered thin gets sent to a psychiatrist and perhaps gets admitted to the hospital until she is healthy enough to undergo comprehensive medical treatment to help her with her psychosis. And how about those poor people who look in the mirror and see a limb that they think does not belong? Do we rush them to the operating room to lop off the offending leg or arm? No…we care for them! We don’t indulge their psychosis…we treat it.

But “transgenderism” is not only humored…it is celebrated. And that is an affront to good medicine and a well ordered society that has some moral basis for its actions. Any physician who participates in the mutilation of a child is a participant in an evil process that is driven by the progressive plan to undermine traditional cultural mores, with the ultimate end being the establishment of a socialist “paradise” in the United States.

Biden Administration Threatens Texas Over Trans Kids: ‘HHS Will Take Immediate Action If Needed’

“This is government overreach at its worst,” Biden said in a statement. “Like so many anti-transgender attacks proliferating in states across the country, the Governor’s actions callously threaten to harm children and their families just to score political points.

“These actions are terrifying many families in Texas and beyond,” he added. “And they must stop.”

I wonder how many Texas families are “terrified” and how many are quite pleased that Abbott is pushing back against the onslaught of progressive insanity?

The idea that a child can make such a momentous decision is contrary to what a traditional society knows about the thought process of a child, his maturity, and his ability to make informed choices.

Children are not capable of making these decisions, and Abbott’s suggestion that their parents are the real drivers of these horrid and mutilating medical procedures is spot-on.

A country that truly cares about its citizens would outlaw “gender reassignment” procedures until adulthood, and then would make them very, very difficult to get. The rate of suicide attempts among those who have had these procedures would be a clarion call to medicine and government that something is wrong! Except the goal is nothing more than the destruction of our way of life, and it has nothing to do with “transgenderism,” if that even exists!
