2/14: Labels

2/14: LabelsAlvin Toffler coined the term ‘Future Shock‘ in the early 70’s to describe how people may react nervously to a world going through too much change in too short a time period. So, is your identity between your legs or between your ears? Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis has your Valentine’s Day gift in ‘Labels: 58 Ways To Name Your Gender‘!

    I hope Clyde understands just because the topic isn’t about homosexuality or beasteality that the 50 orientations biblically are under the same category. At least that’s what I get of procreation and one man and one women bond on a physical and emotional way that most other sexual orientations can’t have. Not because people that want to propagate it don’t want the image of having and looking like a legitimate sexual orientationbesides the fact that out of these 50 sexual orientations how much of the world population does it apply for? Can we honestly call it a sexual orientation if less than 2% apply to it? Where does mental illness come into the picture? Or does it because its to politically correct to say that its a possibility and should be studied. Maybe if were lucky we can find a gene in our genetics for all of them.

    I believe it’s a mental illness. You’ve gotta be out of your mind if you think or want to be a different gender, the opposite gender is supposed to be appealing to normal people. I think it mostly has to do with the parents of these kids putting ideas in their heads since birth. Teaching their kids that they can choose what gender they want to be and so on, messing with their normal brain functions. Along with psychotropics and meds that most kids are on these days and mainstream garbage.

    It takes a limited mind to rest their logic solely on their religious beliefs. Why is it that the world’s religions seem to be able to engage in conversations of this caliber with an open mind – except for Christianity, where it’s adherents seem to misunderstand the differences between the new testament and the old testament?

    Remember, every human is a female embryo until hormonal changes in the womb alter the physical characteristics. Women who have endocrine issues and are androgen insensitive have a genetic sequence of a man.

    Sexual preference and gender preference are not the same concepts. But to those who want to bring up Leviticus, then you are following the path of an ancient jewish Levite priest. Leviticus is known formally as Torat Kohanim, “instructions for the priests”. Females could not hold this ancient position. The laying with a man as another man phrase specially refers to ritualized sex.

    As a transgender person, who came out to my parents at the age of 4, I can say that in my experience and research this is not a new phenomena. My father, try as he might, tried to beat it out of me. Which is worse – beating a child, or beating a transgender child? My parents were simple people and in the 70′s I grew up in a small white town where any aberration was met with ridicule.

    My gender is not a preference. It is. I’ve known my gender since childhood and after escaping the ignorance was able to flourish as a successful female.
