How Pathetic

Reg: What the point of fight­ing for his right to have babies when he can’t have babies?

Fran­cis: It’s sym­bolic of our strug­gle against oppression.

Reg: It’s sym­bolic of his strug­gle against reality.

If you want to know what lib­er­al­ism does this head­line at the Boston Globe says it all:

Led by the child that sim­ply knew

And this open­ing paragraph:

The twin boys were iden­ti­cal in every way but one. Wyatt was a girl to the core, and now lives as one, with the help of a brave, lov­ing fam­ily and a path-​breaking doctor’s care.

Brave is not the word for this, cow­ardly is.

If the kid likes girls things, that’s no big deal, if later in life he decides he is gay and prefers men later in life, that’s his busi­ness. If he chooses to cross dress that will be his busi­ness too.

But for par­ents and doc­tors and the Globe to cel­e­brate the denial of real­ity, for par­ents to indulge their child to the point where they allow him to believe some­thing that sim­ply isn’t true is an abro­ga­tion of respon­si­bil­ity. Let’s tell a sim­ple truth that appar­ently the Globe, the doc­tor and these par­ent are unaware of.

A child doesn’t know, a child wants. A par­ent knows and frankly should know bet­ter.

In the end this is a free coun­try and this boy’s par­ents have every right to raise their sons any way they see fit. They have the right to spend as much of their money as they want on what­ever kind of treat­ment they wish. What they don’t have is the right to impose this real­ity on oth­ers, but that is exactly what will hap­pen.

I guar­an­tee that any per­son who dares chal­lenge their ver­sion of real­ity will be ostra­cized by the school, by the news­pa­pers and by our lib­eral friends.

Well, ostra­cize me if you want, but I’m not play­ing along.

I’ll give the last word to the pythons:

Reg: What the point of fighting for his right to have babies when he can’t have babies?

Francis: It’s symbolic of our struggle against oppression.

Reg: It’s symbolic of his struggle against reality.

If you want to know what liberalism does this headline at the Boston Globe says it all:

Led by the child that simply knew

And this opening paragraph:

The twin boys were identical in every way but one. Wyatt was a girl to the core, and now lives as one, with the help of a brave, loving family and a path-breaking doctor’s care.

Brave is not the word for this, cowardly is.

If the kid likes girls things, that’s no big deal, if later in life he decides he is gay and prefers men later in life, that’s his business. If he chooses to cross dress that will be his business too.

But for parents and doctors and the Globe to celebrate the denial of reality, for parents to indulge their child to the point where they allow him to believe something that simply isn’t true is an abrogation of responsibility. Let’s tell a simple truth that apparently the Globe, the doctor and these parent are unaware of.

A child doesn’t know, a child wants. A parent knows and frankly should know better.

In the end this is a free country and this boy’s parents have every right to raise their sons any way they see fit. They have the right to spend as much of their money as they want on whatever kind of treatment they wish. What they don’t have is the right to impose this reality on others, but that is exactly what will happen.

I guarantee that any person who dares challenge their version of reality will be ostracized by the school, by the newspapers and by our liberal friends.

Well, ostracize me if you want, but I’m not playing along.

I’ll give the last word to the pythons:
