Oh my goodness, Urban Outfitters, a popular clothing and home furnishing retailer, has gone and upset the uber-sensitive Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) advocates and may have even caused a few of them to cry! You see, the company is selling a greeting card that LGBT feels is 'transphobic' and this has hurt their oh-so-tender little feelings. Shame on them!
The greeting card features an updated version of the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme written in the entertaining form of a very bawdy limerick. Although I found it to be quite vulgar, I must admit it was funny but I can see absolutely no reason why the transgender crowd should wave their g-strings in the air. After all, what the limerick describes happening has, undoubtedly, been the shocking experience of numerous men the world over. Hey, you'd think they'd be happy! It's like free advertising!
But apparently the LGBT doesn't consider that to be the case. I think they haven't had enough news coverage lately, so they needed to come up with something to be offended about to draw attention to themselves like the prima-donnas they are.
However, to their horror, the official Urban Outfitters website has sold out of the cards! They're obviously hitting the funny bone of quite a few people who are probably weary of being told what they can think and say about those who insist normal society accept their aberrant lifestyle as normal.
In 2008, This is Money UK printed an article stating that Richard Hayne, the co-founder and now former CEO of Urban Outfitters "views on homosexuality are both bizarre and old-fashioned," and said, "Buying his clothes is like giving cash to George Bush." Wait a minute.
For an opinion to be considered old-fashioned it has, by definition, to have been an accepted belief for an extended period of time. When a new belief challenges that established, commonly accepted opinion, the new belief is the one considered to be 'bizarre.'
So how could Mr. Hayne have an opinion of homosexuality that was both bizarre and old-fashioned at the same time? Honestly, if the LGBT community continues to insist on lobbing insults on those who reject their choices, the least they could do is compose attacks that make some sense. Come on people, put some brains into it!
Carl W. Bushong, PhD established the Tampa Center Identity Program which provides a variety of transition services including hormone therapy, electrolysis and guidance counseling. He states that, "Gender is a recent concept in our culture. (5000+ years of human civilization is 'recent'?)
John Money, PhD first used the term 'gender' in 1955 to discuss sexual roles. Then in 1966, he added the term 'gender identity' while conducting his gender research at Johns Hopkins."
"In 1974, Dr. N.W. Fisk fabricated the diagnosis of 'gender dysphoria'. Previously, the male or female sexual role was considered one of two non-overlapping congenital attributes, determined by one's external genitals."
Really? I had no idea! For thousands of years, all midwives or doctors had to do to figure out this deep mystery of gender was take one look at the newborn and identify the obvious. There. All settled. See how easy that has been? But NOooooo, the liberal doofuses in academia couldn't leave society alone. They just HAD to plant the idea of abnormality where there had never been a problem before!
Most of the general public are, I hate to admit, basically sheeple, content to have someone else take care of their needs and tell them what to do, where to go and what to think. I suppose God made us to have these somewhat child-like qualities because He wanted us to look to Him as our Father who would perpetually love and care for all our needs. Just a theory.
But, isn't it interesting that before the 1950's you never heard of anyone questioning their own sexual identity or gender? It was only when these morons introduced their theories of aberrant gender issues that the general public began wondering if something was, indeed, wrong within them. "Here, little sheeple, listen to us. We're the intellectual elite and we say you should begin to examine whether you were born in the right body."
"Baaa-baaa, oh no! I should have been born a girl! I need to destroy what God has made and tinker with my wonderfully balanced hormones, get sacks of saline surgically implanted in my chest, tie the old man down and start wearing dresses and high heels. There, I feel SO much better and more fulfilled now! Baaa."
I'm a huge proponent of the, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', mindset. Now, don't get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with innovation and improvement on things that will make life easier and more pleasant. But for thousands of years of human history, what gender we are has never been in dispute. This isn't a matter of not liking your hair color or wanting to try a new style of clothing to make yourself feel more confident and attractive. This goes WAY beyond that.
The problem with people who are so miserable inside they question the very basics of whom and what they are has nothing to do with being the wrong gender! They aren't gonna like this but truth is truth.
It boils down to the very simple, original sin of wanting to be our own god. Make our own decisions about how we live our lives. They are listening to and believing the same slick lie Eve fell for. 'God is holding out on you.'
"Pssst! Did God really mean to make you a boy? Didn't your parents want a girl all along? They must be pretty disappointed they had you. I bet you're ashamed of what you are. You can undo what God has made, you know. They have the technology now"
How sad. What an abomination those brainiacs came up with. I think of all the men and women who have tried to remake themselves; who have endured unnecessary, painful surgeries and hormone treatments. All the ones who got so depressed and lived in such misery they committed suicide.
Their blood is on the hands of those men who came up with the question of being the 'right' gender and on the hands of the people who continue to perpetuate and support this lie today.
This is just one more brick in the wall of God's coming judgment. They should have just left well enough alone.
