The Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, published the results of some research in 2017 which was directed to try to explain the different incidences of particular diseases in men and women. Researchers analysed 20,000 different genes, sorting them by sex and for differences in expression in each body tissue. They found that around 6,500 of these genes were expressed more in one or other sex, in at least one part of the human anatomy.
Men and women are different. Vive la difference, doesn’t quite do it. We usually focus on outward appearances; on bodily shape on the specific differences which are there to facilitate procreation. Beyond that it is clear, if a generalisation, that behaviour and conversation differ between boys and girls, and men and women. Evidently, the differences go much deeper than that, according to the Weizmann research, into our very genetic expression. How many differences did they find? Worth repeating, around 6,500 of them.
Recall, a year or so ago, William Thomas, mediocre male swimmer, donned a frock changed to Lia Thomas and beat the pants of US college girls in the swimming pool at the University of Pennsylvania. Obviously lacking all self-respect he, pecker and all, also apparently thought it fitting to use the girls’ change room. One of the beaten girls, Riley Gaines (12-time All-American swimmer) didn’t take kindly to this; and has been campaigning against men competing in women’s sports. The other day after a speech at the University of San Francisco she was set upon by pro-transgender protesters. She was punched and shoved and had to find sanctuary in a classroom for three hours before being escorted to safety. You can read about it and see it here on Fox News.
My impression, apart from the expletives was that the most common cry of the protesters was “trans women are women.” Let those of us retaining our reason and common sense say that this is nonsense. Trans women are men pure and simple. They are men comporting themselves as women. They have the genetic makeup of men and all of the same surface body parts as men, unless they’ve had them surgically removed. So, trans women aren’t women. Women don’t and never have had a penis. And for the information of UK Labour leader Keir Starmer, who is obviously short on reason and common sense, that’s 100 percent of women not 99.9 percent.
To be clear, adults claiming that they are the opposite of their biological sex is ho-hum in the scheme of things. Go for it, if that turns you on. The problem is the invasion of women’s sports by men and the activism as exhibited in the violent demonstration against Ms Gaines. The problem is the insidious way that activism has found its way into classrooms and school libraries, into drag queen story hour, into lewd shows which some wayward mothers take their children to in the US. The problem is the sexualisation and grooming of children that this represents.
The problem is the way governments – Victorian, Queensland, the ACT, soon NSW and the other states – have legislated to ban non-affirming counselling of mentally-confused minors who mistakenly believe they are in the wrong bodies. The problem is the way this has all led to children and teenagers being given puberty blockers whose lasting effects are unknown; subsequently being given hormone therapy, and finally being physically mutilated. Teenage girls having their breasts chopped off. Which sane and decent person does not think this to be barbaric? Surely it will be seen as barbaric when the future looks back at this present. If not, dear God help us.
Jesus was tempted by the Devil in the lead up to Easter. Anyone who doubts the existence of the Devil need only consider the chemical and physical maiming of confused youngsters. If that isn’t compelling enough proof, what exactly is it?
