Back in June, I read an blog post by Diana Shaw on the “Women are Human” blog that interested me but at the time, I was too busy to write a blog about it myself. I simply copied & pasted it into a Word document & saved it.
Going through my Word files, I found it & thought that it would be appropriate to post it today … being a Sunday & all, when so many people are listening to one kind of sermon or another.
Diana Shaw writes: “Transactivists say what they say for religious reasons. The idea that there is a female within a male body requires faith to believe, as there is no evidence of this phenomenon. The belief that a person’s soul can transcend their body by faith, mantras (“trans women are women, trans men are men”) or works (hormones and/or surgery) is a faith. We have science on our side showing there are two sexes, all humans belong to one of the two sexes, and humans cannot change sex. We need to challenge transactivism on the basis that we should not be required to believe and practice this religion.” (Women are Human blog, June 4, 2021)
I am in total agreement with this statement.
Unlike homosexuality, which is a sexual orientation, & therefore biologically based, what used to be called trans-sexuality & is now called transgenderism, has no biological basis whatsoever. Gender is a social & cultural construct which promotes gender stereotypes; transgender activism embraces these gender stereotypes. Why anyone ~ especially so-called “liberals” ~ would want to promote & perpetuate these antiquated & ridiculous stereotypes is beyond me & most true feminists.
Gender & sex are not the same thing. It gets on my nerves to see the terms used interchangeably like they are. I don’t have a gender. I have a sex. I am a WOMAN. A adult human female.
Yes, it makes sense that transactivism is a religion. & like most religions, if you speak out against it, you’re shunned ~ you’re attacked ~ you have vile names attached to you ~ you are told you are “transphobic” ~ even if you refuse to convert to this religion & have no intention of ever converting.
