If Transgenderism, Why Not Paedophilia?

Within the space of the past eighteen months alone, various articles and essays have shown transgenderism to be anti-psychiatry, anti-science, anti-language and anti-sexual difference. We have read of tomboys heading to jamborees, of athletes and lobotomies. And undergirding these pieces have been those everything-at-once essays best filed under the category: this makes no senseHere, I want to add another ingredient to the mix. I want to show the link between ‘gender identity’ and paedophilia. This is not pleasant territory, of course. That’s the point.

Bodiless: The Sexless Revolution Accelerates

The fast food philosophy behind transgenderism serves up pablum such as, “Sexual orientation is who you go to bed with, gender identity is who you go to bed as” and “Sex is between your legs, gender is between your ears.” In light of the first reading (1 Dec 2016) of the Gender Identity (Protected Characteristic) Bill 2016-2017, and in light of the fact that the occasion was a masterclass in groupthink, we need to start telling it like it is. Our response to the ideology—for that is what transgenderism is—needs to have considerable bite.

Interview/Bobby Lopez/15th Jan 2016

(Edited for clarity)

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.

Special Rights for Some or Natural Rights for All? New Man, New Dignity, New Rights

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.

Of Bullied Boys and Bathroom Bills

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's Best-Kept Secret: You are Cisgender

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.
