Transgenderism Reverses the Relationship Between Existence and Consciousness, Violates Logic, Destroys Concepts, and Manufactures Alleged Miracles

 “Transitioning” appears to be thought of today simply in terms of sexual identity, i.e., transitioning from male to female or from female to male. However, there is no reason why there couldn’t be other kinds of “transitioning” as well. It’s all merely a matter of how one “identifies” oneself, i.e., chooses to think of oneself.

Thus, for example, there could be “age transitioning.” In this form of transitioning, adults can transition from adulthood to childhood, something that, as we shall see, opens up new and additional paths to fame (or infamy).

And, of course, children can transition immediately into adulthood, irrespective of their biological age, which would enable such things as “adult” six-year-old children signing up for sex-change operations, or voting.

As I say, it’s all a matter of what an individual chooses to imagine and desire.

Age transitioning could be combined with sex transitioning, which would represent a more complex, multi-dimensional form of transitioning.

A simple and obvious form of multi-dimensional transitioning would be if the biological males who compete against biological females also claimed transitioning to childhood.

That way, they could add to the records and titles they presently gain by outcompeting women, the titles they would win against children. Thus, a twenty-year-old man might then be not only a champion against women, but also a champion against children.

This would enable him to more quickly fill the record books with his “accomplishments.”

Of course, multi-dimensional transitioning includes identifying in multiple kinds of activities. Thus, men who outcompete women in swimming, say, could also outcompete children in baseball and thus become “Little League” champions if they wished.

More importantly, everyone could choose to identify as anyone, capable of doing anything. And it would all have to be taken seriously and be respected. Anyone who “identified” as Napoleon would have to be acknowledged as Napoleon.

Another characteristic of “transitioning” from one category of thing to another is its kaleidoscopic character. Thus, while still possessing his penis and testicles, a twenty-year-old male can be both a grown woman and a small child.

Self-identifications can change from one to the other, instantaneously, as fast as his/her/its thoughts change.

Ideas such as these represent a reversal of the most fundamental relationship in the universe: the relationship between existence, i.e, reality, and consciousness.

In the words of Ayn Rand, “Existence exists—and the act of grasping that statement implies two corollary axioms: that something exists which one perceives and that one exists possessing consciousness, consciousness being the faculty of perceiving that which exists.”

The concept of “transitioning” represents a reversal of the relationship between existence and consciousness. It posits the primacy of consciousness over existence. It claims that existence is the product of consciousness, that it is whatever consciousness wants it to be.

Transgenderism fosters insane claims, such as the claim that men can be pregnant and have babies. Such a claim is utterly fraudulent.

It rests on first claiming that women who “identify” as men, i.e., claim to be men, are in fact men. Then, when some of these “men” become pregnant and have babies, it claims that men can have babies. The reality, of course, it that these “men” are women fraudulently labeled men.

Using the same logic, one could find cats that bark, dogs that purr, and fish that fly. All that one need do is fraudulently claim that there are dogs that “identify” as cats, cats that “identify” as dogs, and birds that “identify” as fish.

The dogs, cats, and birds, respectively mislabeled as cats, dogs, and fish, will continue to behave as what they are, which is dogs, cats, and birds.

But because they have fraudulently been mislabeled and continue to be fraudulently mislabeled while behaving as what they actually are, we have the equivalent of miracles allegedly taking place.

Thus “cats” bark, but only because all along they are actually dogs, falsely labeled as cats. Dogs purr because all along they are actually cats, falsely labeled as dogs. And fish fly because all along those “fish” are actually birds, falsely labeled as fish.

And finally, “men” can be pregnant and have babies, because all along they are not men, but women, falsely and fraudulently mislabeled as men.

Transgenderism is an assault on concepts. Its consequence is scrambled thoughts, in which ultimately everything can become everything else with which it allegedly “identifies.”

The concept of “transitioning” is an assault on the laws of logic. The most fundamental law of logic is that “A is A,” a thing is itself and not anything that is not itself. Thus, a man is a man and not a woman; a woman is a woman and not a man.

The most obvious thing that makes a man a man is the possession of a penis. The most obvious thing that makes a woman a woman is the possession of a vagina.

Physicians who deliver babies see which organ the newborn baby possesses and classify it as a boy or girl accordingly.

They do not arbitrarily “assign” it to the one sex or the other, leaving open the possibility that later on their recording of the fact will be overridden by the child’s opposite identification. There is no objective basis for an opposite identification.

A penis is not and cannot be a vagina. A vagina is not and cannot be a penis.

While these are the physical facts, people can have confused ideas. They can fantasize about being a member of the opposite sex, though they can never actually be a member of the opposite sex and thus can never know what it is actually like to be a member of the opposite sex.

When a person’s ideas contradict immutable facts, the rational thing to do is to try to change his ideas, not the facts.

To the extent that the confused ideas may be reinforced by bodily characteristics that could be interpreted as suggestive of the opposite sex, giving such an individual sex hormone therapy may well be a logical thing to do.

But the hormones should not be those of the opposite sex, but those of his or her own sex.

Thus men who want to think of themselves as women, should be given male hormones, not female hormones, testosterone not estrogen.

Women who want to think of themselves as men should be given female hormones, not male hormones, estrogen not testosterone.

There is no more fundamental task facing the supporters of logic and reason, and on their foundation, freedom and capitalism, than uprooting the slide into madness that transgenderism represents.

If we do not want to live in a world run by lunatics and populated by craven cowards willing to say and believe anything, we must put an end to transgenderism. The way to accomplish this is through the power of logic, not physical force.

Just as one is forced to accept the propositions of mathematics and natural science, which are reached by facts and logic, so too can the case against transgenderism be made.

Transgenderism must be rejected because it violates the fundamental relationship between existence and consciousness, violates the laws of logic, destroys concepts, and manufactures alleged miracles.
