Please note this article was NOT written by Allen West. It was written by a woman. I was born one and fully intend to remain one for the rest of my life on this planet.
I am increasingly disturbed by the way our culture is being compelled to celebrate the choice of some people to slice off the bits and pieces of their bodies that God intended them to have but they believe they’ll feel better without.
This should not become a new fashionable trend. It is not “normal.” It is an infinitesimal percentage of our population. According to a study by the leading LGBT demographer at the University of California Los Angeles School of Law’s Williams Institute, only 0.3 percent of U.S. adults are actually transgender. Three-tenths of one percent.
Yet the LGBT lobby and its supporters are determined to make us accept this joyously.
Well here’s something they won’t be too happy about you knowing.
Walt Heyer, writing for the Witherspoon Institute’s Public Discourse, says “The transgender movement began as the brainchild of three men who shared a common bond: all three were pedophilia activists.”
Here are the highlights of Heyer’s article:
Transsexualism was added to Kinsey’s repertoire when he was presented with the case of an effeminate boy who wanted to become a girl. Kinsey consulted an acquaintance of his, an endocrinologist by the name of Dr. Harry Benjamin. Transvestites, men who dressed as women, were well-known. Kinsey and Benjamin saw this as an opportunity to change a transvestite physically, way beyond dress and make-up. Kinsey and Benjamin became professional collaborators in the first case of what Benjamin would later call “transsexualism.”Benjamin asked several psychiatric doctors to evaluate the boy for possible surgical procedures to feminize his appearance. They couldn’t come to a consensus on the appropriateness of feminizing surgery. That didn’t stop Benjamin. On his own, he began offering female hormone therapy to the boy. The boy went to Germany for partial surgery, and Benjamin lost all contact with him, making any long-term follow-up impossible.
The third co-founder of today’s transgender movement was psychologist Dr. John Money, a dedicated disciple of Kinsey and a member of a transsexual research team headed by Benjamin.
Money’s first transgender case came in 1967 when he was asked by a Canadian couple, the Reimers, to repair a botched circumcision on their two-year-old son, David. Without any medical justification, Money launched into an experiment to make a name for himself and advance his theories about gender, no matter what the consequences to the child. Money told the distraught parents that the best way to assure David’s happiness was to surgically change his genitalia from male to female and raise him as a girl. As many parents do, the Reimers followed their doctor’s orders, and David was replaced with Brenda.
By age twelve, David was severely depressed and refused to return to see Money. In desperation, his parents broke their secrecy, and told him the truth of the gender reassignment. At age fourteen, David chose to undo the gender change and live as a boy.
In 2000, at the age of thirty-five, David and his twin brother finally exposed the sexual abuse Dr. Money had inflicted on them in the privacy of his office.
The consequences of Money’s abuse were tragic for both boys. In 2003, only three years after going public about their tortured past, David’s twin brother, Brian, died from a self-inflicted overdose. A short while later, David also committed suicide.
Heyer himself underwent sex change surgery, lived as a woman for eight years and then realized his surgery masked and exacerbated deeper psychological problems.
He describes the results of two important university studies, which determined surgery didn’t alleviate severe psychological problems, and there was continued transgender unhappiness and a high incidence of suicide after hormones and surgery.
But of course, the powerful LGBT lobby doesn’t want you – or people considering surgery – to know any of this. They just want us all to be welcoming and accepting and proud of those who take this brave step.
In fact you might not even know our MILITARY is now being forced to celebrate LGBT “Pride Month.” A reader sent me this photo of various memos posted at an Army base in Germany. One of them says “The dedication and contributions of our Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) civilians have had immeasurable impact on our National Security and the Department of Defense.”
Really? How exactly? You mean like Bradley Chelsea Manning?
And an official memorandum is being circulated which says “The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is proud to observe the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month during its traditionally recognized month of June…All managers and supervisors are encouraged to support attendance at events and activities.” You can see the actual letter here.
Here’s another little factoid that might surprise you. Take a guess at what percentage of the U.S. population is gay. Many Americans think it must be 25 percent. You probably think 10 percent is reasonable.
You’re WAY off.
Based on 2013 NHIS data published by the CDC, only 1.8 percent of men self-identify as gay and 0.4 percent as bisexual, and 1.5 percent of women self-identify as lesbian and 0.9 percent as bisexual.
I do not find homosexuality, bisexuality or transgenderism offensive. But what DOES offend me is the way being different – in fact being as drastically different as possible – is being sold as the new normal, which we must all accept and celebrate.
I for one will not be watching “Caitlyn” Jenner’s new reality circus show – not that I ever watched the one where he played the part of a man, either.
