So, I was trying to figure out what I would blog about today… and I was thinking I might do a post on the “Divorce Parties” I saw on the news this morning. And I might very well still do this, but I came across a much more interesting article.
Chaz Bono, aka Chastity Bono, the daughter of Cher and Sonny Bono, is an interesting sort of person.
Upon first glance you would say to yourself, “Chaz Bono. Oh! This article is about a man.”
And you, tragically, would be wrong.
The “he” in this article is actually a “she” who has undergone gender reconstruction. Uh huh.
Let me tell you folks that I do not understand what is going on in our country, in our world, with this whole gender thing. I hear everywhere, mostly in school from my professors, that your sex is male and female, but gender is how you feel as an individual. So, you could biologically be a male, but gender wise, you feel that you are a woman… Crazy, huh?
Call me old fashion, but a person who has a penis is a male in both sex and gender, whether they feel like a man or not. Sorry, huns. That’s the fact of the matter. It’s the same for women. If you have a vagina, you are biologically a female, and you can’t change that.
But why is it that people today feel that they can change their gender? I mean, I agree with Dr. Keith Ablow in this article. In fact, I COMMEND him for writing this article. It’s very controversial. It’s very politically incorrect. And someone is standing up for what is right and true! Props to you Dr. Ablow.
You were born as a male or female, and as much as some people want to believe it, you can’t change that! And to all these people who say they were “born this way,” if you were born that way then why would you want to change yourself? Sounds a little hypocritical to me…
Ok, Lucy, so why can’t you change your gender? Well, I’ll tell ya.
Because you were born that way. Funny, huh? You were created by a creator. And I really don’t care if you believe in God or a higher deity or not. Something greater than yourself created you. You are biologically programmed to be a man or a woman. You have specific hormones to your GENDER/SEX. (Because I don’t feel the two are different.) Your chromosomes are different. Men have an XY chromosome; women have an XX chromosome. And it doesn’t matter if you go through “gender” reconstruction surgery or not, you can never EVER change your sex chromosomes. You can ask any doctor. I’m pretty sure it’s dang impossible.
And yes. You can get testosterone injections to make yourself more manly or estrogen to make yourself more feminine. *cough* And yes, you can do all that reconstruction crap to make yourself look physically (ish) like a male or female. And you can wear clothes from the opposite sex and change your voice and start going out with people of the same-sex, but have you REALLY changed? Inside? Really??
I don’t think that you can ever change your gender. Not to mention all the moral implications. And no, gender reconstruction is not a “right”. I think this is a great example of how morality really is being thrown out the window, and how we all think that we can just do whatever we want with no negative consequences. One day, folks, we will realize all the problems we have with recognizing human dignity.
