Negativity can wear anyone down after awhile. So, I welcome something positive to begin this week’s Realities. It came during a leisurely walk down Fillmore’s bike path along the Santa Clara River, where ponds developed after all that welcome rain we had this year.

I’m glad I had my camera with me because the largest flock of Snowy Egrets I’ve seen in more than 30 years were resting on shrubbery near the ponds. Thirty to forty birds had gathered; best of all, about half were chicks, and about every five minutes a few more would sail in from the fish hatchery. It was a wonderful sight; they are an especially beautiful species that became somewhat rare during the drought.


Now, from Egrets to odd ducks, I’ve been doing a little research on the Transgender species. No one should believe that actual sexual transition is occurring - it cannot happen. True Gender dysphoria has been extremely rare, until this decade. Unfortunately, the medical profession now ignores that ancient, hallowed Hippocratic Oath to “do no harm.” Today, it’s all money - billions.

The Transgender fallacy has been adopted by a growing number of otherwise serious medical authorities as fact. Take Dr. Deanna Adkins for example. She is a professor at Duke University School of Medicine and the director of the Duke Center for Child and Adolescent Gender Care. Adkins argues that gender identity is not only the preferred basis for determining sex, but “the only medically supported determinant of sex.” (That’s a lie.) “Every other method is bad science”, she claims: “It is counter to medical science to use chromosomes, hormones, internal reproductive organs, external genitalia, or secondary sex characteristics to override gender identity for purposes of classifying someone as male or female.” (see: Transgender Ideology Is Riddled With Contradictions. (Ryan T. Anderson, Ph.D., The Heritage Foundation.2-9-2018) @RyanTAnd.

Of course, I’m not a physician nor expert in the medical field at any level. But I do respect common sense, logic, and established scientific reality. In these categories it appears to me that Dr. Adkins is embarrassed by common sense and has adopted a peculiar self-serving logic. She participates in a surprising new area of medicine which accepts wholly novel concepts of pseudo-medical reality while abandoning a millennium of established medical experience.

If this is so, she and her brave new world of medical experimenters should at least consider an even older alternative explanation of human nature, the spiritual, which takes us back to the beginning, and its creation. It is simpler, and easier to understand with something called faith. After all, Dr. Adkins has ample faith in her understanding of sexuality and gender, though that faith was virtually unheard of when she was born.

Breaking human history down to a manageable level, that I can understand, the Angels rebelled against God, releasing something called evil down to earth. Then, God’s first human creations disobeyed Him and spread evil on earth. That began a perpetual war between good and evil. Those folks called Christians, and those sometimes referred to as Our Elder Brothers in Faith, the Jewish People, tried to live by certain explicit Commandments, by books known as the (Torah) Bible, some being good, others doing evil. Skipping through a few millennia, we land in the first part of the third millennia, continuing to acknowledge the existence of two perfectly distinct sexes - male and female, with good still fighting evil. This distinction has everything to do with the original good component parts of human beings, “chromosomes, hormones, internal reproductive organs, external genitalia”, etc. which Dr. Adkins now disfavors. Does she believe that with scalpel and beta blockers she has the power to stitch together something brand new in the way of created beings? In my opinion, she acts like a god-wannabe, creating gendered persons with opposite sexual identity, or vice versa. See (Church Militant, Architects of Perversion, Part II, “John Money: pedophile founder of gender ideology.” Listen to David Reimer’s ghastly story, and its suicidal conclusion.

Dr. Frankenstein thought the same thing, as he shrieked “It’s alive! - it’s alive!”
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” I fear for those who, like David Reimer, fall into the hands of demigods with scalpels.

I side with the Judeo-Christian cohort in this battle, which identifies the phenomenon of Transgenderism as just the latest rendition of the same pure evil, as identified at the start.

Federal courts (7th Circuit) identify Transgenderism as a “religion”. The Fillmore School Board and Superintendent have no authority to inflict this evil religion upon the students entrusted to their care. I would resist as strongly against teaching Scientology.

(Note: Fillmore schools are facilitating both Transgender and Drag Queen presence on campus. They closely relate.)
Billions of people think the creation story and the concept of pure evil versus good is hogwash - and billions believe it’s true. But the foundational principles of our Republic support it. Those who reject it should, for the sake of consistency, also reject Transgenderism.
