Supporting something a vocal and forceful societal elite has demanded isn’t stunning or brave. Yet those who’ve cast themselves as the great heroes of transgenders certainly think they’re brave. Except people who support and push transgenderism are actually engaging in great harm to everyone involved, not just to society, but to the very people afflicted with gender dysphoria. The same people they claim to help.

We frequently shine a light — usually a harsh light — on how transgenderism affects our society, specifically how transgender women are violating the formerly safe spaces of women. I don’t want to dedicate yet another column or post to that just now. Though I reserve the right to return to this stomping ground when the need calls.
Instead, let us focus on how transgender supporters, who think rather highly of themselves, cause the most damage. To better illustrate this idea, I must employ an analogy, so I beg your indulgence.
Imagine being diagnosed with cancer. You confide in your friends and family, hoping they’ll support you through this difficult time. But your idea of support differs from what medicine defines as appropriate treatment. What you want from your friends and family as you endure cancer is to pretend cancer is a blessing. You demand your friends and family, if they love you, encourage you to live this new truth. Cancer is what you were always supposed to have, you’ll say. It’s who you really are, you’ll say. You don’t want to hear anything which conflicts with your view of how your diagnosis will affect you now or in the future. You’re living your truth, and your truth is cancer is who you really are. And so your friends and family, not wanting to lose your esteem, go along with “your truth.” They may even demand others who are not your friends and family, do the same. You may demand total strangers, doctors, nurses, politicians, to “indulge your fiction.”
Meanwhile, the cancer goes untreated and eats you alive. Perhaps years go by. The disease takes its toll on your body and mind. One day, if you’re lucky, you realize the error you made, so you reverse course, start the actual treatment now you have finally seen past “your truth” to the actual truth.
Once you’re on the other side, when you can reflect on the years something ate away at you unfettered, how would you view your friends, your family, doctors, nurses, and politicians who “indulged your fiction”? Would you commend them for their support, or would you condemn them for their enablement which could have killed you?
I used cancer because we all readily acknowledge cancer should be treated promptly. The suicide rate of transgender people, even after they transition, is as high as 40%, so while it doesn’t have near the fatality rates of cancer, let’s not pretend being transgender doesn’t come with real risks.
It does a transgender person no good to go along with their fantasy just to retain their favor. They need help, support, and treatment which shouldn’t take the form of indulgence, dangerous hormones, or the mutilation of their bodies. He or she who thinks they’re supporting a transgender person by endorsing the use of hormones or the mutilation of their bodies isn’t being loving. No matter how much they applaud themselves. They’re actually enabling a dangerous condition. Such people should be shamed, not celebrated. That especially includes the parents of transgender children.

Our societal betters mandate everyone indulge a transgender person. Our societal betters have instilled real fear into those people who likely would treat transgender people for their gender dysphoria, who want to address more than the symptoms and reach the cause.
But when someone speaks out, they’re ostracized. They may even be banned from civil discourse, as has happened on Twitter. Ironically, the vitriol comes from people who believe their advocating on behalf of transgender people, but who are actually harming them.

Meanwhile, a transgender person may lose their life. One bit of themself at a time. A penis here, breasts there. Foreign, toxic hormones coursing through their veins. Many do irreparable harm to their bodies, with a society and “friends” volunteering to administer the dosage. Many will take their own lives, even after transitioning. For their deaths, society will insist transgenderism be embraced as a reality, not the harmful disorder it is. For their deaths, society will blame everyone who didn’t indulge the fiction.
But it is those who laud transgenderism as an act of bravery — not transgenderism’s critics — who bear blame for the tragic, inevitable fallout. May transgender enablers be reminded and haunted by the reality of their deadly actions until something finally changes.
