FLOWER MOUND, TX – January 9, 2022 – What kind of a nation have we become when we need legislation to prevent parents from having their children surgically and chemically altered in order to change their gender? Hearing mothers and fathers say that their little Johnny wants to be Janey because they saw him play with a doll is a vivid example of the need for parenting education. Even if you’ve never been a parent, it should be obvious that kids aren’t mature enough for a literally life-changing experience. If an adult is unable to provide sound advice to children, they are too dangerous to be in charge of them.
If your 8-year-old is fascinated by the animals in the zoo and decides to climb the fence in the lion cage, do you give them a helping hand? Unfortunately, some parents will use their children to advance their own radical notions of sexuality. Children become laboratory experiments for those parents who blithely succumb to the whims of left-wing orthodoxy, rather than shielding them from the degeneration that has corrupted our culture. What does a child know about the complexity of their genetic structure? Additionally, are children able to understand the future ramifications of altering the natural processes that gave them life?
Even the most casual observer in history would admit that the notion of sex reassignment surgery would have been considered an abomination only a few decades ago. It’s one thing to see men and women disguise themselves as the expression of a fanciful fantasy during a comedy sketch, but, when it begins to take a leading role in our society, we have to. to consider it as an aberration, not as a roadmap for our future. . Let’s face it, when you look at Caitlyn Jenner aka Bruce Jenner sporting a short skirt, high heels, and long blonde braids; do you really see a woman Or, unless your perception has been totally distorted by the constant barrage of Hollywood hedonism on steroids, isn’t it true that what you are actually seeing is a man wearing womenswear?
Some of the most famous comics of the past dressed as women and reared up on the stage to thunderous laughter from their audiences. The legendary Milton Berle, who dominated television in the 1950s as “Uncle Miltie”, did a famous cross-dressing routine as “Aunt Mildred”. A few decades later, comedian Flip Wilson topped Nielson’s ratings with his female lookalike known as “Geraldine”. The reason audiences found these comedy routines so hilarious was because of the absurdity of seeing men strut like women. It wouldn’t have been in the least funny if these men had publicly stated that they really believe in gender change. Of course, that was a time when we weren’t inundated daily with a far-left propaganda machine that would be the envy of Joseph Goebbels.
Nonetheless, it is one thing for adults to engage in fanciful notions of sexual impairment, but quite another to impose these ideas on their naively impressionable, pre-adolescent offspring. The role of a parent is not to submit to every impulse emanating from the frontal lobe of a brain in the early stages of logical reasoning. Rather, this is when a parent’s advice is needed most. Surrender to the whims of childhood is an abdication of one’s role as a parent.
Fortunately, in Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is ready to fight the practice of using transgender hormones and surgeries on children with “gender dysphoria.” He recently said, “We actually launched a survey to look at the companies that sell, manufacture and distribute these puberty blockers because we believe there are serious issues affecting a minor’s body at this age. Paxton, calling the procedure “child abuse,” added: “Providing puberty blockers to young adolescents puts them at risk for infertility, heart attack, stroke and other health problems. . Meanwhile, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services released guidelines that also classify “genital mutilation” as child abuse.
Hopefully the GA’s attention to this irrational stain on our culture will lead to legislation that will prevent future incongruities from emerging. Then all it will need is Governor Abbott’s signature and we may be on our way back to a time when childrearing was not sacrificed on the altar of left-wing madness.
