Insanity Is Hereditary: Transgender Parents Raising ‘Gender-Fluid’ Child

Posted on | August 14, 2017 | Comments Off on Insanity Is Hereditary: Transgender Parents Raising ‘Gender-Fluid’ Child


London’s Metro tabloid reports:

This is Britain’s first gender-fluid family.
They are raising four-year-old Star Cloud as a ‘person’ and are telling him to ‘not get hung up’ on being a boy.
Parents Nikki and Louise Draven say they are ‘just ordinary’ and are being ‘who they want to be’.
Star calls Louise, 31, his mummy, but she is in fact his biological father and is transitioning to become a woman with hormone treatment.
Louise has felt she was a girl from the age of eight, and has been living as a woman since a year before Star’s birth.
While Star’s daddy is pansexual Nikki, 30, who was born a woman and is his biological mother.
Nikki will dress as a woman on some days and will dress as a man on others.
The parents want Star to be free to wear make-up, paint his nails, wear girls or boys clothes and play with dolls if he wants to.
In September, he will go to school for the first time and will wear a boy’s uniform, but with a pink vest and socks.
Nikki said: ‘We don’t want our child constrained by that either. We’re just an ordinary family being who we want to be.
‘We never tell Star he’s a boy, we tell him he can be whatever he wants. We don’t buy gender specific toys or clothes and we let him choose what he wears. Pink is one of his favourite colours.’

The problem with this idea is that the parents are deliberately depriving their son of the potential for success as an adult male. How many times must I explain the common-sense objections to the feminist T-shirt slogan “Raise Boys and Girls the Same Way”? This slogan “presumes that a gender-free androgynous childhood will eliminate inequality . . . by eliminating differences between men and women. Actually, what gender-free childhood will produce is failure.

No matter how “progressive” parents may be in their commitment to equality, what they want for their own children is success and happiness. Is the “gender-fluid” offspring of the Dravens likely to become a football star or otherwise attain the sort of masculine success that normal women find attractive and desirable in a romantic partner? Even before the Darwinian competition of mate selection begins in adolescence, however, ordinary social processes tend to marginalize children who in some way are misfits. The losers and weirdos don’t share the normal hobbies and interests of their peers and, of course, these hobbies and interests tend to be gender-specific. A boy must learn to be “one of the guys,” to fit in and get along with the other boys in school, or else he will be ostracized and ridiculed. No amount of school “anti-bullying” programs will protect the misfit against this natural tendency among children. Egalitarian ideologues will never be able to compel children to accept their “everybody-is-special” worldview, and it can therefore be predicted that “gender-neutral parenting” will produce children who are confused and relegated to the unpopular fringe by their peer groups. Tobias “Tobi” Hill-Meyer, the boy who was raised by a lesbian feminist couple and grew up to become a transgender pornographer, is an example of the kind of outcomes we can expect from “gender-neutral parenting.”

The liberal media and the public education system are uncritically promoting experimental parenting ideas based on Third Wave feminist theory, without any apparent concern for the likelihood of bad results.
