All Heart, No Mind. Oprah Winfrey has joined the Castration Conspiracy, the drive to convince homosexual (and lesbian) lunatics that it is possible to be 'a woman trapped in the body of a man' (or vice-versa), and become what they 'really are' by surgical mutilation, chemical infusions, and lies to everyone around. Again this past week, she has indulged the insane lie that it is possible to "change one's sex" thru "sexual reassignment surgery". But not one single cell changes from XY to XX, or XX to XY chromosomal configuration, so there is no sex change at all, only mutilation — gruesome, vile mutilation that would be punished by life in prison if it were done to someone without his or her consent.
+
Lunatics are incapable of consent to mutilation, and society long ago accepted that crazy people cannot be permitted to harm themselves. It is a sacred trust to protect lunatics from themselves. That is as true of "transgendered people" who want to slash themselves to ribbons as of anorexics who, unless stopped, will starve themselves to death.
+
Oprah is a decent woman whose sympathy exceeds her sanity. Indulging lunacy is not in the interest of the lunatic, and studies have shown that people who have mutilation surgery are no happier than people who receive counseling. Worse, "transsexuals" often develop very serious health problems, including a higher incidence of fatal cancers because of disruption of their normal blood chemistry thru the administration of unnatural and inappropriate concentrations of (synthetic) sex hormones. That's why Johns Hopkins University stopped doing "sex-change" operations.
+
The harm that these vile lunatics do themselves is the least of it. They also entrap innocent people in their web of lies and madness, inducing people of inappropriate gender and orientation to become involved in hidden homosexual or lesbian relationships, betraying people they pretend to love. There's no surprise there. People who hate themselves cannot love anyone else, so of course they maliciously and willfully use and hurt other people. Society must not permit that, and preventing lunatics from harming others is the other part of the moral charge we are given relative to madness.
+
Gender confusion has to be addressed by simple, straightforward explications of science, if not also religion.
+
Science can say plainly:

Biology doesn't lie. Chromosomes, not the mind, not human will, not anything else, determine gender, and the physical reality of gender is never a lie, never a delusion. Physical reality is reality. No emotional 'reality' trumps physical reality. You "really" are what your chromosomes say you are, and there is no such thing as "a woman trapped in the body of a man" or "a man trapped in the body of a woman". No such thing. Wishing you were something else doesn't make you something else. You can wish you were Napoleon or a porpoise or orangutang — or refrigerator, for that matter. But surgically installing a lite bulb at the back of your mouth won't make you into a refrigerator.

Religious people can say,

"God doesn't make mistakes, so if you're born a boy, you are a boy, period. You grow up to be a man. No one born a boy grows up to be a woman, or vice-versa. God marked you in every cell of your body with the gender you really are. There is no such thing as emotional reality that conflicts with physical reality. If you are chromosomally a man, or woman, that's what you are. There's no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Now, if you're unhappy about that, we can address that, and help you accept what you really are. But we're not going to pretend that God made a mistake and it is for man to fix it."

The human race is feeble-minded, in the sense that personal identity, something about which everyone should be very clear, can be easily confused. A boy can look at himself naked in a mirror and see plainly that he is a boy, but people's hostility to his wanting to be involved emotionally and sexually with other boys and to grow up to be happily attached to a man, can make him deny his eyes and convince himself that he is "really" a girl and want to grow up to be a woman.
+
Simple sex-role behaviors, like the choice of toys or games, can throw a child's identity into doubt. A boy wants to play with a doll or a girl wants to play with a truck, and all of a sudden the adults around start worrying, and conveying that worry to the child. Or the boy is fine with wrestling with other boys, playing with gender-appropriate toys and such, but would rather play piano than football, and a macho, sports-obsessed father starts to feel insecure about his own manhood, then makes it known to his son that there is something wrong with him, that's he's not as masculine as he should be, and that maybe he's some kind of fruit.
+
A perfectly masculine little boy notices that when (some) other boys are starting to take interest in girls, he doesn't. Then he realizes that his emotional and sexual thoughts are centered on and intent upon boys, learns the words "gay", "homosexual", "fag", "fruit", "fairy", and the like, and decides that he must be gay, and gay must mean effeminate, so he must become effeminate, not because it's really his nature, but because that's what he's supposed to do. We all try to live up to expectations, to some degree or other.
+
So he decides that if to be gay he must become a flaming faggot, he is going to flame as big and scream as loud as anyone has ever flamed or screamed — maybe a bit more. He's going to be the best damned faggot you ever saw!
+
Some people are not even that strong, but allow themselves to accept the equation, "Attracted to boys/men = girl/woman", and then conclude that since they are attracted to boys/men, therefore they must "really" be a girl and must find a way to "become" a woman. Along come some medical quacks who say, "For X-thousand dollars, I can make you a woman!" and they buy it. Everyone around them, in government, in media — even Oprah Winfrey, a decent, caring woman — says that's possible, so it must be true.
+
But some gay people are stronger than the rest, and say "I know what I want, and know as well that wanting boys/men does not make me any less a boy myself nor keep me from growing up to be a full, normal, active man, enthusiastic about life with men. I don't have to be nelly, or queeny, or flamboyant, or loud and obnoxious about it. I'll just be myself, a gay man, and live my life with dignity, self-respect, and respect for other gay men." They're the lucky ones.
+
How can the strong share their strength? "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link", and gay society is very weak indeed, because the connections between us are weak, and many relationships dysfunctional. In a metal chain, a strong link cannot make a weak link strong. Can a human chain be any more dynamic? Can one man's strength and confidence make another man stronger?
+
One thing is plain: the confused do not become unconfused in isolation. Surrounded by negative influences, they become more confused, not less. Surrounded by positive influences and role models, they might become less confused, and eventually sort themselves out. But they must escape the constant pressures to confusion. And they can't do that in straight society, not when even decent people are pushing indecent things, like persuading faggots that they should have their genitals chopped off and a slit gashed into their crotch so as magically, by that mutilation, to become a woman! whereupon all the feelings they have for men will become "normal"!
+
Gay men must get away from heterosexual notions of gender-appropriate behavior. For us, it is gender-appropriate to make passes at men, have sex with men, form intimate relationships with men. We must find places where those behaviors are not just accepted, grudgingly, but actively encouraged.
+
Just as gay men need bolstering, so too, because they too are feeble-minded, do straight men. Thus straight society has to constantly instruct its own members as to what is and is not appropriate. Heterosexual society is constantly reinforcing heterosexuality in images, song lyrics, literature, etc., and constantly fiting against temptations to homosexuality by steering straight men away from 'danger', because people in general are weak-minded as regards sexual identity, straight men as much as gay men.
+
Without constant reminders that homosexual sex is disapproved and unmasculine, if not actually forbidden, a very large proportion of "straight" men would have homosexual sex when the opportunity to do so with a desirable man occurred. So the straight world is constantly on guard against homosexuality.
+
The gay world doesn't have to be as agitatedly wary, however, because gay men who have made the transition from the straight life they were raised to have, do not ever choose heterosexuality thereafter. Homosexuality is plainly the more powerful instinct. Straight men are attracted to it, so are constantly warned away. Nobody has to warn gay men away from heterosexuality. They just naturally cleave to their own orientation if given a choice.
+
The problem is finding a way to be free and to meet potential partners. That is what the gay world is for, but it does a very poor job of providing opportunities for gay men to find happiness as full, natural men. The "gay" world retains a lot of deeply instilled heterosexual notions. That is something we need to work on.
+
But the first responsibility of gay men is to GET THE HELL OUT OF THE STRAIGHT WORLD, to escape its expectations and coercions. Lessening those expectations and coercions by altering the straight world's behavior and teachings can help. Thus, it is urgent that whenever someone like Oprah Winfrey does us injustice, we gently but forcefully correct her. I'm going to write her a note. You might too.
