And we threw everything at the wall

The leftist press is trying to convince us that the whole transgender controversy was manufactured by right-wingers to torture kids and raise money.

The NY Times reports in its top story yesterday:

When the Supreme Court declared a constitutional right to same-sex marriage nearly eight years ago, social conservatives were set adrift.

The ruling stripped them of an issue they had used to galvanize rank-and-file supporters and big donors. And it left them searching for a cause that — like opposing gay marriage — would rally the base and raise the movement’s profile on the national stage.

“We knew we needed to find an issue that the candidates were comfortable talking about,” said Terry Schilling, the president of American Principles Project, a social conservative advocacy group. “And we threw everything at the wall.”

What has stuck, somewhat unexpectedly, is the issue of transgender identity, particularly among young people. Today, the effort to restrict transgender rights has supplanted same-sex marriage as an animating issue for social conservatives at a pace that has stunned political leaders across the spectrum. It has reinvigorated a network of conservative groups, increased fund-raising and set the agenda in school boards and state legislatures.

Here is a supposed comedy tv show, SNL, with its first nonbinary cast member, doing a comedy skit that is actually just a rant against Republicans who are denying healthcare to kids.

This is absurd. Until several years, almost everyone was against transgenderism. They believed that schools should not be promoting transgenderism or drag shows. That schools should use legal names only, and not withhold info from parents. And there should be no gender-affirming drugs or surgery for minors.

The lizard people are gaslighting you again. Boys are boys and girls are girls. No one is nonbinary. Christendom is under attack by radical perverts.

Absolutely nothing says 'I care' about children's health more than castrating them.
Now, if your child had said 'Mommy, I want to eat candy all the time...', that would have been unreasonable. If your child had said 'Daddy, when I grow up, I want to be an actor who plays an amputee in cheesey crime dramas, can you have my legs cut off?' that would have been unreasonable.
But when eleven year old Johnny says 'Mom, Dad, I'm an evil future patriarchal sexist racist homophobic white male largely responsible for everyone elses problems, and I don't want to be, I want to be a girl!' Mom and Dad say 'OMG, we are like sooo super supportive! Sure sweetheart, let's go get you transitioned!'.

I'm not sure who is more stupid and insane. The mentally ill activists who think child mutilation is a good idea, Or the parents who desperately wanted to be hip and trendy who were actually talked into going along with it.

“I understand that being trans is different, it’s innate,” Maher said. “But kids do have phases. Kids are fluid about everything. If they know at age 8 what they wanted to be, the world would be filled with cowboys and princesses.” He recalled, “I wanted to be a pirate. Thank God no one scheduled me for eye removal and peg leg surgery.”
