Transgenderism’s terrible toll on marriage and family

from Faith and Politics:

There may be no clearer sign of the madness that’s taken hold of Western society in recent decades than the victory of transgender ideology amongst our elites in government, media, arts, education, commerce and, perhaps most disturbingly of all, medicine.

From the vehemence with which this transgender ideology is being promoted and enforced you would be forgiven for thinking that it was actually possible for a man to become a woman and a woman to become a man. Or perhaps it is precisely because this is not possible that the vehemence we’re seeing is so strong and the tolerance of dissent so thin.

So, for the avoidance of doubt, let us be clear: being male or female is a biological reality. It is coded into each person’s chromosomes, XX or XY, hard-wired into every cell in our body. This means that any changes in appearance that might be brought about through surgery can only ever be cosmetic – replacing healthy, working organs with artificial, non-functional ones – while any changes induced by hormones require a life-long course of medication to sustain. This is because no medical treatment that’s been invented or could conceivably be invented can change a person’s underlying biology or DNA. We are male or female all the way down.

Yet despite this incontrovertible scientific fact about the fixed biological nature of male and female, the idea that a man can become a woman or vice-versa is fast becoming an enforceable orthodoxy from which no dissent at all is allowed. The act of refusing to accept that a man who has ‘transitioned gender’ is in fact a woman and must be treated in every way as a woman is quickly becoming a sackable and even criminal offence throughout Western countries. In the UK this lamentable state of affairs is underpinned in law by the 2010 Equality Act, which bans all discrimination on the basis of what it terms ‘gender reassignment’. As a result, organisations and corporations are now falling over themselves to assert the objective validity of gender transition and silence anyone who might dare to question whether the emperor really is wearing any clothes, and whether there might not be any negative consequences of letting biological males loose in female-only spaces and contexts.
