I don’t need to be celebrated. Well, let me clarify that a bit – I don’t need to be celebrated for existing. That’s not an accomplishment. Okay, if you knew me in my teens and early twenties, it is kind of an accomplishment in that I would not have made anyone’s list of long-term existences, but not losing myself to death isn’t an accomplishment, it’s almost the least someone could do. Existing is literally the least someone could do, so it is decidedly not worthy of celebration. Yet, we’ve created a culture where that is, in fact, what people celebrate, or more accurately, insist be celebrated. I’m gonna pass.

Like I said, I’m all for celebrating accomplishment – that is the essence of sports – but simply being isn’t even worth a high five. That you are is nice, what you do with it is what matters. 

That’s something the political left is working overtime to destroy. Accomplishment is being belittled and attacked, even punished. But some delusional person declaring an impossibility to be is supposed to suddenly overwrite reality? Hell no.

Reality is not dependent upon your belief in it, nor is it concerned with your comfort level. It just is. You have to deal with it. 

That attitude will serve you well in life, which is why the left hates it.

No matter how hard someone wishes they were another gender, they aren’t. No matter what they claim to feel, they don’t. In fact, it is impossible to know what it feels like to be another person, let alone another gender.

How can I, Mr. Insensitive Hatemonger, say such a thing? Simple: Describe to someone what chocolate tastes like. You can’t use the word chocolate, and the person you’re describing it to has not only never had it, but never even smelled it. How would you explain it to them?

You can’t. We all know what it tastes like, so it’s something we just take for granted. But some people love it, others hate it. Personally, I could take or leave it. It is different for everyone, and no one is wrong.

On gender, men assume they know what it’s like to be another man and women with women. But we really don’t. There is no one way to simply be, we all just are.

I have an idea of what it’s like to someone else to be hit in the groin, as every man does. No woman ever will, no matter how much they insist they are a man. I couldn’t describe it to another man, and no other man could explain it to me, it just is for each of us, not all of us. I don’t know if others felt it the way I did.

Some people love the taste of liver, others hate it. Some people love the smell of patchouli, others can’t stand it. It’s the same for both, but registers differently for everyone. 

You couldn’t teach someone to breathe or swallow, you just do these things.

Some people become obsessed with, even addicted to sex; most people do not, and some people have no interest in it. One group will never understand the others. 

When it comes to gender, you don’t have to like it, but you can’t change it. That is simply impossible because no one knows how it is to be either any more than a fish can understand the concept of wet. 

Your best bet is to get comfortable with who you are and the body you’re in, because that’s what you’ll be. If you don’t like the way it looks or feels, work to alter it to lose weight or tone up, whatever. But whatever you do will only be cosmetic, you are what you are. The sooner you come to terms with that the happier you run the risk of being.

On “Trans Day of Visibility” Democrats ran over each other to declare themselves to be in support of a delusion, in reality they simply don’t care. They see a political advantage to it because it makes them look like they care. They do not. They’ve simply found a way to weaponize their position while immunizing themselves from the negative consequences of that position. 

De-transitioners are ignored, so their story doesn’t get out, and when someone suffering gender dysphoria commits self-harm or suicide, it’s easily blamed on someone using the “wrong pronouns” or “bullying,” not the indulgence of mental illness that only leads to a deepening of the problem. 

No amount of indulgence will ever alter reality. Pretending a girl is a boy may buy some time, but the void that led to that confusion will continue to grow. That is why there is such a high rate of suicide and suicide attempts among these people.

Ignoring or indulging a problem doesn’t make it go away, it only makes things worse. Democrats make things worse while claiming to be the only people concerned. They care so much that they are caring people to death. As long as that fact – those deaths – remain useful to Democrats, they will continue. That doesn’t deserve a day, but does deserve visibility.
