Transgenderism and the Battle for Western Civilization

https://lettersfromthegulag.blogspot.com/2017/07/born-that-way-mythology-lawsuit.html

“A further challenge (Danger) for the national Russian identity is connected to the processes we observe outside of Russia. They include foreign policy, moral and other aspects. We see that many euro-atlantic (the West) States have taken the way where they deny or reject their own roots, including their Christian roots which form the basis of Western Civilization. In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied – national, religious, cultural and even gender identities are being denied or relativised. Their politics treats a family with many children equal to a homosexual partnership (juridically); faith in God is equal to faith in Satan. The excesses and exaggerations of Political Correctness in these countries indeed leads to serious consideration for the legitimisation of parties that promote the propaganda of pedophilia. - Vladimir Putin

Feminist Camille Paglia On Transgenderism: 'The Cold Biological Truth Is That Sex Changes Are Impossible'

ByHank Berrien June 15, 2017    views

In an interview with The Weekly Standard, writer Camille Paglia, who has never been afraid of confrontation (she identified herself publicly as a lesbian in the 1960’s) had some strong comments about trangenderism, saying, “The cold biological truth is that sex changes are impossible.”
Asked by Jonathan Last why there has not been an open confrontation between feminism and transgenderism, Paglia responded that there has already been such a confrontation in the United Kingdom, citing the transgender community’s attacks on iconic feminist Germaine Greer and radical Australian feminist Sheila Jeffreys, the author of Gender Hurts.
Paglia noted,Jeffreys identifies transsexualism with misogyny and describes it as a form of ‘mutilation.’ She and her feminist allies encountered prolonged difficulties in securing a London speaking venue because of threats and agitation by transgender activists.”
She continued:
I am highly skeptical about the current transgender wave, which I think has been produced by far more complicated psychological and sociological factors than current gender discourse allows. Furthermore, I condemn the escalating prescription of puberty blockers (whose long-term effects are unknown) for children. I regard this practice as a criminal violation of human rights. It is certainly ironic how liberals who posture as defenders of science when it comes to global warming (a sentimental myth unsupported by evidence) flee all reference to biology when it comes to gender.
Then, the shot straight from the hip: “The cold biological truth is that sex changes are impossible. Every single cell of the human body remains coded with one's birth gender for life. Intersex ambiguities can occur, but they are developmental anomalies that represent a tiny proportion of all human births.”
Paglia added, “Like Germaine Greer and Sheila Jeffreys, I reject state-sponsored coercion to call someone a ‘woman’ or a ‘man’ simply on the basis of his or her subjective feeling about it.+++

President Trump’s decision to ban transgenders from serving in the U.S. military has created a firestorm across the country. J.R. Salzman, an amputee Iraq War veteran, took to Twitter to defend the decision and the thread is going viral.
