From TheResurgent, by Stacey Lennox:
“After winning the 2018 Miss Universe Spain pageant, Angela Ponce, a biological male who has undergone gender reassignment surgery and hormone therapy, has not only become the first trans contestant in the Miss Universe competition, but the odds makers’ hands-down favorite.”
“Now, in a global contest, a biological man is favored to walk away with the title. A biological man with a natural ability to maintain a leaner physique. A biological man whose female presentation is the creation of a surgeon’s blade and facility for sculpting. Whose anatomy, if their transition is full, contains a wound that will need to maintained as such and implants for breasts and cheeks. There is absolutely nothing authentic here. Yet Ponce had this to say in her interview:
“Trans women have been persecuted and erased for so long. If they give me the crown, it would show trans women are just as much women as cis women.”
“This is absolutely untrue. Ponce will never ovulate. She will never carry a child to term that was created from her own unique ovum. She will never experience intimacy the way a woman does even if the mechanics look similar. The only thing being erased here is the achievements and opportunities for biological women. And these will continue to be erased if this madness continues.”
Of course this had to happen. Stacey expressed a lot of concern for the women and their families who have spent countless amounts of time and money to prepare for competitions, whether beauty pageants or sports, and how unfair and uncompetitive it is for these biological women to have to directly compete with biological men. She emphasized that men, those of cellular XY chromosomes (my definition), have naturally more muscle mass and less subcutaneous fat, and therefore benefit more relative to biological women from training and exercise athletically. True, but biological truth underscores a much bigger issue. Since the issue I see doesn’t appear to have occurred to society as a whole, let me explain.
When people like “Angela”, or (warning, deadnaming ahead) whatever his name was before the changes, looked in the mirror, what did he see? He saw himself, as God made him–assuming he wasn’t wearing makeup, or a wig at the time. He didn’t like what he saw. Maybe he hated having to shave, or wanted longer hair, maybe he preferred women’s clothing and makeup, or maybe it wasn’t just what was in the mirror. Maybe his body was unmasculine or effeminate, maybe his penis was small and he caught snickers in the locker room. I don’t know what specifically, but something major was not working for him. So far, that’s not uncommon. Lots of people, especially kids, don’t like how they look. I didn’t, until I was around 22. Not liking how you look can be rational. Most people live with it, or improve their diet and exercise habits, or cover up their mirror until they mature. What is not rational is to interpret not liking what you see or how you feel as constituting evidence that you are REALLY the other sex! It is not rational for an XY male to say “I feel like a female.” You aren’t, you cannot know how a biological female feels or thinks, and you never will despite the skillfulness of your surgeon. That wound you decide to replace your penis with is not, and never will be, a healthy vagina, it is a wound and has to be cared for as such. So how is it that so many people accept the irrational idea that a youth can know they are not the sex that their chromosomes, and therefore their appearance, says they are? I mentioned in a recent blog that in one school in Brighton, England, 76 students between ages of 11-16 considered themselves “gender non conforming.” This would be considered child abuse if society was still rational about gender, if not for the propaganda and bullying of the trans-express!
The issue I am flogging here is mass acceptance of delusional thinking, further exacerbated by puberty blocking drugs, hormones that don’t belong and irreversible surgery. Insane! What did “Angela” say? “Trans women have been persecuted and erased for so long ….trans women are just as much woman as cis (biological) women.” I don’t hold with persecution of anyone for any reason, let alone something they can’t help, or a big mistake they made, or what they believe or how they look. If they committed a crime, they should be punished according to the law. But if they are miserable, deformed, a different color, or anything other than a criminal, they should not be persecuted. But I have a problem with the word “persecuted”. Christians and Jews in Islamic countries are persecuted. Muslims in Myanmar are persecuted. Just about everyone in China is persecuted. Was Angela persecuted? In Spain? Then won Miss Spain 2018? I take that word a lot more seriously than Angela. But you are not just as much a woman as a woman, because you aren’t a woman at all. You LOOK like a woman, that’s for sure, but you are saying, in effect, that women are only what they look like. Your body will not do the things a woman’s body can do, your mind will not perceive what a woman’s mind can perceive.
If I have not been clear enough, for a person to insist they know they are not the sex that God made them, they are delusional, they are denying God’s design for them, and elevating their interpretations of their feelings and dislikes above God’s sovereignty, if they even believe in God. If they don’t, so much the worse for them. Do the rest of us, and our children, have to bear the costs of their delusions? Apparently so. Keep it up folks, just don’t express dismay years from now that children have disappeared.
