Prominent gay atheist: Transgenderism is a ‘lie’. Agreeing to it demoralizes you

British journalist and author Douglas Murray is easily one of the most insightful, incisive, and intelligent commentators on culture today. His last book, The Strange Death of Europe, is a fascinating analysis of the migrant crisis of 2015, the vanishing European identity, and the spiritual vacuum that Islam is now increasingly occupying. Despite the fact that he is an atheist of sorts, he is genuinely grappling with the reality that without God, our human rights—and indeed all of our rights—are suddenly rooted in nothing at all, and has bluntly stated that a return to Christianity might well be necessary if atheists continue to fail at providing a solid framework for reality.

Murray has a way of encapsulating issues both uniquely and succinctly, and in a recent conversation he had with the two hosts of the podcast Triggernometry, the chat wandered over to the subject of today’s dogmas and taboos. It’s funny, Murray observed with a wry grin, that the progressives don’t seem to realize that they are now the dogmatists. And then one of the hosts posed him a what is a rather dangerous question in today’s media climate: “What do you think is one of the great lies of our age that we haven’t addressed yet?”

There are many of them, Murray, who is openly homosexual, replied thoughtfully, “But they all have one thing in common, which is that society is demanding that you agree to something that is not possible to agree to and keep your self esteem, or at least be able to look at yourself in the mirror. The most obvious one is everything to do with gender and sex. That’s why trans keeps tripping people up.”

After all, he pointed out, it is actually “such a small issue, such a minority of a minority issue, but it keeps tripping people up because they don’t want to say the thing they’re being told to say, which is that there is no difference between men and women and that we can migrate between the sexes and that our bodies are like pieces of Lego—you can just stick bits on to it and if you don’t like it you can take it off again. Because there is something demoralizing about agreeing to lie.”

This, of course, is why Jordan Peterson became so famous: Because he simply declined to play along.
