The Flesh Made Word (Expanded Edition) is now available via Amazon, as a paperback only (UK here and US here). Besides being more user-friendly than the original book, this expanded edition of The Flesh Made Word contains new material in support of the claim that transgenderism is a by-product of abortion laws. Below is an excerpt from the introduction, plus the contents page, plus links to reviews/references for the original book. I have really gone and done it this time. All enquiries welcome, via email, via my blog profile.
Transgenderism and Abortion? I would like to talk with you about transgenderism, also known as gender theory or gender ideology. More particularly, I would like to present an exercise in joining-the-dots, showing the link between a redefinition of legal marriage, back to transgenderism, all the way back to the legalization of abortion.
Bobby Lopez: Welcome to CogWatch 23. This is the 23rd in a series of podcasts run by children of gays, dealing with issues of gender and sexuality out there in the popular culture. And I’m here right now with Dan Moody, who is a blogger in the UK who came to the attention of my great esteemed colleague Stella Morabito (who is a senior contributor at The Federalist) because of some of the work that he has done on gender (and specifically transgender) issues but also larger sex and sexuality ideological questions.
In her recent essay ‘The New Dignity: Gnostic, Elitist, Self-Destructive Will-to-Power’ Roberta Green Ahmanson highlighted “a rapid and radical transformation in our culture’s understanding of what it means to be human, and, in particular, what it means to have dignity”. This transformation can also be highlighted by looking in particular at what it means to have rights. To do this we first need to recognise the difference between natural and legal rights.
A ‘bathroom bill’ is a piece of legislation allowing both sexes to enter into those public spaces which society and law previously had deemed sex-specific - spaces such as showers, changing rooms and prisons. The problem with most arguments against bathroom bills is that they are mere opinion. One of the most popular arguments is that allowing men to use the women’s showers will cause an increase in sexual assaults. And the most popular retort to that argument is “No, it won’t”. “I am in favour of the bill because nobody will be sexually assaulted”. That is a poor reason to be in favour of something, but it is a poor retort to a poor argument.
Transgenderism has stolen the headlines throughout 2015, but many people do not realise it has a shy twin. If you do not identify as Transgender you are Cisgender. Did you know? The concept of Cisgender lives mainly within the shadows of academia but is perhaps the single most powerful way to illustrate how and why the ideology named Gender affects everybody’s legal status.
John is Joan’s husband, but he can be nothing without first being somebody - and nobody can be somebody without being male or female. A diamond facet can be what it is only because of the diamond first being a diamond. The facets of John’s identity, such as tall, kind, and hungry, are possible only because he has a sex - a foundational essence upon which facets can be built. When John identifies as male, he does nothing more than recognise his own physical reality.
