Would you like to change your gender to ‘unknown?’ You now can in some countries and third gender is surely coming to America!
Germany is the first country to recognize ‘indeterminate’ as a gender on birth certificates. You can now be male, female, or blank, which can be marked with an ‘X.’
Some children are born with characteristics of both sexes – hermaphodites or Intersex – and this law would allow parents to leave it open until the child can choose a gender. Intersex people make up about 0.033% to 0.05% of the population.
Oddly, they think this will reduce discrimination. It is hard to imagine how being known as an ‘X’ will curtail discrimination.
This follows a constitutional decision which determined that if a person “deeply feels” they belong to a particular gender, they have the right to choose. What if they want to be a mule?
This doesn’t have to be this complicated. Physical characteristics should determines one’s sex, period. In the case of intersex children, there is a medical reason just as there is with someone who has undergone sexual reassignment surgery. I’m not feeling the whole deeply feels criteria.
The EU wants every member nation to move in the same direction. At least one German newspaper said it is a ‘legal revolution.’ It will be that!
It will affect marriage laws. Germany only allows marriage between a man and a woman though most Germans support gay marriage. The institution of marriage will be open to all sorts of combinations.
Germany passed their law in May and it has only now become public.
Australia is about to release their plan for third gender recognition. All personal documents in Australia will have a third category irrespective of whether or not they have undergone sex reassignment surgery or hormone therapy. Therein lies the problem – no medical indices.
Finland and Brussels are looking at similar laws. Nepal has third gender citizenship certificates.
Sweden has a third gender pronoun – hen. So they have male, female and hen or other.
The European chapter of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association is behind this ‘progress.’
What could possibly go wrong?
Unfortunately, a lot.
Germany has opened the gender keg of worms.
There are people who are opposed to selecting a gender for their child just out of principle and this gives that foolishness legitimacy.
For example, Sweden has a government-sponsored pre-school for 1-6 year olds that treats the children as gender neutral. The school does not use pronouns such as “him” or “her” (they made up a new pronoun, “hen”). They emphasize homosexual, transgender, and group marriages in their fairy tales.
It gets weirder –
“…At the “Egalia” preschool, staff avoid using words like “him” or “her” and address the 33 kids as “friends” rather than girls and boys.
From the color and placement of toys to the choice of books, every detail has been carefully planned to make sure the children don’t fall into gender stereotypes.
‘Society expects girls to be girlie, nice and pretty and boys to be manly, rough and outgoing,’ says Jenny Johnsson, a 31-year-old teacher. “Egalia gives them a fantastic opportunity to be whoever they want to be…The taxpayer-funded preschool which opened last year in the liberal Sodermalm district of Stockholm for kids aged 1 to 6 is among the most radical examples of Sweden’s efforts to engineer equality between the sexes from childhood onward…
Again, I ask, what if they want to be a mule?
In California, Governor Jerry Brown has approved co-ed bathrooms and sports, without any medical support. If a child feels he or she is a boy or girl that day, they can go to any bathroom or join any sport they choose. It’s damaging to children psychologically and it’s dangerous.
Sweden now bullies toy companies into reversing gender roles in ads. We’ve come a long way from the Nordic tough guys.
In India, parents are surgically turning their girls into boys so they don’t have to pay the expected dowries. In one town alone, 300 girls were surgically transformed into boys. They won’t have any mental problems, no, not at all.
It’s called female foeticide – sex selection abortions – by families who fear the high marriage costs and dowries they may have to pay. They do it before the children know what’s happening to them.
If we are going to have three genders, why not four? We need one for the mule.
