This case is tragic, regardless of whether one believes or disbelieves in the current pop myth of “transgendered people.”
Let’s start off by defining “transgender”: “… of, relating to, or being a person (as a transsexual or transvestite) who identifies with or expresses a gender identity that differs from the one which corresponds to the person’s sex at birth.”
In my world, individuals who seriously identify themselves as “transgendered” are mentally ill. One writer, Gina Miller, perfectly sums up my beliefs in this article.
I refuse to call this male teenager who committed suicide by his “transgendered” name of “Leelah.” He was born a male, his parents named him Joshua, and nothing he believed to the contrary will alter this fact: he remains a male and I will call him by his male name and refer to him as such.
America long ago dropped down the proverbial rabbit hole of Alice in Wonderland lore. So many in this once great and moral nation now believe and embrace astoundingly stupid and inane beliefs…like someone born one sex can magically wake up one day and decide they are actually the other. If you google “Joshua Alcorn,” you will see many writers who are comfortably opining these ridiculous beliefs from the rank smelling bottom of this particular putrid rabbit hole.
Those who pander to the delusions of those unfortunates like Joshua help nobody; and certainly Joshua’s mental illness did not receive the needed attention from those who chose to indulge him in his fantasy that he could actually believe he was a female born in a male’s body.
One of the facts that most Americans refuse to admit is how weird and strange people are who identify themselves as homosexuals, transgendered, transsexuals, ad nauseam, the whole perverse alphabet soup of the “LGBTQ” label that seems to add another letter to its ever increasing train every year.
When I write “weird” and “strange,” that is precisely what I mean: these unfortunates are people that, when they walk down the street or engage you in conversation, you know you are dealing with someone who is off, abnormal, different and unusual in an unhealthy way.
But today, to suggest such a thing is considered politically incorrect, insensitive, hateful and homophobic. The preferred route is that we treat these bizarre individuals as special and precious because of their aberrations and vice. Truly, we have dropped down a dark and insane hole.
It is astounding what people will believe once they reject that God exists. Belief in God and the Scriptures is an anchor to sound thinking, but once we jettison this belief system, we expose ourselves to thoughts that, in many cases, are dangerously delusional and unhealthy…like Joshua did when he began wearing women’s clothes and putting on their makeup.
The twisted psychological platform that the LGBTQ rests upon is the real reason for the suicide of Joshua and not because of the tired reasoning that states his death came about because of societies rejection of his perverse lifestyle choices, and until we deal with this, many more deaths like his will be reported in the world news outlets.
