Transpocrisy

There is a core hypocrisy and double standard embedded within transgender activism that needs to be more thoroughly explored.  It can be found in the following excerpt about the attacks on student Senator Isabella Chow at UC Berkeley:

At Wednesday night’s jam-packed Senate meeting, where all non-Chow business was set aside, students made clear that “disagreeing” with a person’s essence is the definition of bigotry. And for three hours, until shortly before midnight, they took the microphone one by one to tell her so, as Chow sat stony-faced beneath a huge banner reading “Senator Chow Resign Now.”

Let’s pull it out – students made clear that “disagreeing” with a person’s essence is the definition of bigotry.

Isn’t this precisely what the students were doing when it came to Chow?  Chow’s essence is that of a Christian, an essence no less than any trans essence.  She made it clear that her abstention was linked to her essence/identity.  Thus, as the students lined up to disagree with Chow’s essence, they were engaged in the definition of bigotry.  A mob of bigots…by their own logic.

This hypocrisy becomes even more clear from another person lashing out at Chow:

Senator Teddy Lake, who ran to represent the LGBTQ+ community, repeatedly asked Chow how she can claim to validate LGBTQ+ people while simultaneously stating that identities within the LGBTQ+ community were against her values.

“I don’t feel comfortable being told that I’m valid and then saying that you disagree with me and my community,” Lake said at the meeting.

Over at that site, someone with the handle YellowSquash nails it:

It has never occurred to Lake that this is precisely what the Christian community faces everyday and now we are being told that we are not valid to begin with. That was a non-reflective self-refuting statement.

Indeed.

So when the trans community, and even the larger atheist community, disagrees with Christianity, they are telling Christians they are invalid.  They don’t exist.  Atheism is just a bigoted attempt to erase Christians, right?

The trans community demands that everyone agree with their essence and their community.  Why?  Because failure to do so is nothing less than hate and bigotry.  The failure to agree with their essence and community = hate + bigotry.  Yet the same trans community fails to agree with the Christian identity and community.  Many even label Christians as delusional for believing in myths.  According to their own logic, their rejection of the Christian essence and community = hate + bigotry.   Transpocrisy

    The purpose of the Senate is to make decisions on behalf of the student body. Inevitably there will be students who are disaffected with one or another of the Senate’s decisions, inevitably there will be students who are disaffected with the reasons on or more of their representatives give for voting whichever way they did.

    So far as I can tell, student Senators at UC, Berkeley, have not previously been subjected to the treatment given to student Senator Isabella Chow.

    She’s been discriminated against.

    This was a video of the event. It was heartening to the supportive comments for Chow in the comment section.
