A Libertarian Weighs in on Transgender Folks

A family member who reads this blog reached out to me and queried the question “If you are a libertarian shouldn’t you accept trans folks?”  This person is not wrong, but here are my thoughts.

I want to asterisk my thoughts with this disclaimer.  I do not agree with this lifestyle, nor do I accept the LGBTQ lifestyle.  I merely tolerate it.  The LBGQ group is folks who in my opinion ditched God and decided to live a life of sin.  However, their lifestyle can easily be reversed, corrected, or changed.  It simply involves who you like taking to bed/private with you.  I have 2 members of my extended family who live that lifestyle, one is married, and the other is not.  I harbor no ill will toward either…. funny enough, both are from the same parents.

The trans thing is a horse of a different color. The gay/lesbian lifestyle has been around a long time, the trans one has not.  Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner brought light to it, and Fox News gave it a platform.  Now it seems to be a trend, it reminds me of the trend to come out as gay in my childhood.  But again, this is different.

Bruce Jenner

My actual take?

If you are over the age of 18, and want to change your gender, I’m not against it.  I just want you to have an understanding of what you are doing to your body.  Sadly, I think most do not know, and never will actually know.  This fad is new.  I think a course/class should be offered; you need to know what you are actually doing to your body.  You are changing your body’s chemical makeup and that is a big deal.  One that is casually left out of the discussion regarding trans folks.  I also feel you should have a mental health exam.

If you take the course/class and pass a mental health exam then by all means, go for it.  If you are over 18 you are legally an adult as far as I am concerned.  By all means you can change your gender, I don’t like it, but I’m ok with it.

Just one thing to think about.  How far are you willing to go as a transperson?  Think it out. It’s easy to dress up/down as the other gender, but what about your body?  Sure, you can change your plumbing, wear makeup etc. but what about your Adam’s apple? Your voice?  Chest? Caitlyn Jenner is a bad example; she has a lot of money and found the right doctors/surgeons to get it done.  Will you?  Can you change back to your birth gender?  Will insurance cover that?

PS it’s one thing to want to cosplay the other gender or have a drunken tryst with the same gender, but this trans thing scares me. I think most of those who choose to change their gender will live to regret it later.

Editor’s Comment: As The Chief pointed-out, Bruce Jenner spent way more money than your average 18-year-old will ever have to alter his body. In the photo above, the person behind the camera used a bucket load of tricks to make Jenner look that feminine. It took multiple people and several manhours in a studio to get a photo that makes him look like a girl; however, no amount of lipstick on the pig or bodily mutilation can actually make Jenner a female. Genetically, Jenner will always be male. Bruce is a broken dude and I refuse to normalize his mental illness by calling him “Caitlyn”.

LBGQ ≠ T

One thing I will never understand about the LGBTQ community no matter how many times its explained: why do they accept the Trans community?  Think about it. If you are gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, or queer those are human sexuality/lifestyle choices.  I dated a girl, and after we had broken up, she decided she liked both girls and boys, so she became bi-sexual. (Note to the weirdos out here: I understand it meant she discovered her sexuality but still my point stands.)  I also know a friend who decided she was only into girls (lesbian) after seeing a movie where Jennifer Aniston got completely naked.  (Contributors to this blog have a much different reaction to seeing Jennifer in the buff.)

Friends of our family have gotten divorced and decided they too preferred same sex relationships as opposed to traditional relationships.  In all of these cases while it was not always taboo, most forget we banned gay marriage as a state in 2008; nevertheless, acceptance has become far more prevalent today. 

I understand full well why those groups are all accepted into the LGBQ crowds, it’s a matter of sexual preference.  Note: many at the blog have lifestyle issues with these folks, but do not see them as disruptive to civilized society.  The Nine in Black Robes made it the law of the land and we chose to accept it.  No hate is needed here.

However, one group who in my opinion pigeonholed themselves into that crew who is doing heavy damage to our society: The transgender crowd.

Trans folks have a very different set of circumstances than the rest of the rainbow crowd.  This is not about sexual preference or attraction, this is about making yourself into a real-life science project, one where undoing it may be impossible.

In the case of the folks that I mentioned above that changed their sexual identity or attraction, their circumstances were different; however, trans folks are cut from a much different cloth.  No one I know who is LBGQ has openly advocated for folks coming out who are not in fact LBGQ.  The “T” crowd is doing exactly that.  Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner started all of this, and Fox News gave it a place to spew their filth unchecked.  It has since taken off like wildfire.  The trust the science crowd from Covid fame are just as guilty here.

Folks who become transgendered are mutilating God’s creation. If you refuse to believe in God, fine… your birth parents can get credit for your creation.  As a baby develops, its body creates its own chemicals and biological functions based on genetic information programmed into its very being at conception.  Adding care, nutrition, and time will follow the genetic code. Gender is determined for you before you are ever born. In what crude world would someone try to stop testosterone or estrogen from being created?  Or worse yet, chemically reverse it?  These are the questions no one is asking this crowd.  I’m sorry but having someone put a dress on or a halter top does not make them a girl.  Like I said this is nothing but a science project.

I’ll back up a minute.

Say a young boy decides, likely via his “friends,” that he is really a girl.  Perhaps he buys some sex toys, follows some unorthodox people on Instagram or Only Fans, and is stunned at how dirty old men/perverted women will “pay/tip” to watch a show.  Soon he goes deeper down the rabbit hole and starts buying girl’s clothing.  He buys a wig, and heels and now he has a full-on persona of a female.  There is still a problem, He is not satisfied with mere cosplay. His body knows he is a boy, even if he has a problem with that mentally and/or emotionally. Somewhere in all this confusion, he still feels he is not good enough. He is convinced by others that taking chemicals to alter his body into thinking it’s a girl will fill the emptiness inside. He gets a prescription from a local baby killing factory for hormone blockers. His body will now begin to grow female organs and he will be having the male ones diminished, suppressed via chemicals, or outright removed.  To further the change, he legally changes his name.  Now the transformation is basically complete even if there are a few details to iron out.

Now you let me ask you this.  Say this person who was in high school/college during this period gets closer to 40.  All his friends are married or seriously dating someone else, whether the same gender or opposite.  “She” now realizes that this gender switch isn’t what he thought it would be. Most of us have something that we did in our youth that we regret but very few of us pay as high a price as this unfortunate soul. Depending on the level of self-mutilation, there may not be any path to return to your former state. It’s too late.  The science likely won’t be available and if it is, likely won’t be covered for free like the initial change was.  The devastation will be so much, they likely will kill themselves.  Look it up, stats don’t lie, and suicide among this crowd is far higher than any other group…. by far.

Congrats to the crowd who is pushing this science project on families across the USA.  The devastation from this will be felt for generations to come.  It’s not science, its mutilation thru manipulation, we used to try to bring awareness to this in Africa, now we accept it.

I feel at some point, the LBGQ group will wise up and get this crowd out of their inner circle.

One of those things isn’t like the others.
