The American Thinker today has an article entitled Portraits of Madness: Don Quixote and the Transgender SJW, by William Sullivan. Sullivan illustrates in his piece the suffering and hardship that delusional people impose on those around them. They often brow beat the people closest to them, the people who love them and want them to remain in their lives into going along with their fantasies, pretending that they, like the emperors subjects, can see his new clothes. But, as the little boy points out, the emperor has no clothes. Don Quixote is not a fearsome knight but a sad old man in ill fitting armor. The wind mill is not a giant monster. There is no such thing as "transgendered." No one "assigns" your gender at birth, as if they were ordering a customizable feature on a car. We are what we are, and it is all pretty obvious to any observer. Its either a boy or a girl. Boys have that little appendage down there, girls do not.
Unlike what has been repeatedly stated by the
I was happy to see that Mr. Trump indicated that "transgendered" individuals would not be allowed in the military. I was disappointed with the predicatable reaction by the Left. The idea that the transgendered do not cost any more than others is quite untrue. The first "cost" is that these people identify themselves first and foremost not as potential soldiers, but as "special." Because of the "special" identification, these people demand acknowledgement and even celebration of their status, which can only have deleterious effects on morale and unit cohesion so necessary to an organization whose mission is to fight wars. Then there is the extra cost of continued treatment to allow them to maintain their delusions, which also have to be maintained even in a war zone. Trump is right, the cost is too high, and frankly, the payoff for the nation is zero.
Sullivan concludes his article with this:
The delusions of transgender individuals will undoubtedly persist. But there is nothing noble, and there is plenty that is detrimental, in our continued cultural enablement of the madness promoted by transgender ideology.Just so.
