Blowhard Bill Donohue of the Catholic League is bitching about the media, yet again. The Defender of the Faith™ (who happens to be a divorced man) says: Media Ignore Trans Muppet Character.
I wrote about the supposedly transgender Muppet on Tuesday. My take then — and my take now — amounts to: “So fucking what?”
Blowhard Bill is an idiot. He asks, rhetorically:
Why would Disney, the alleged family-friendly entertainment giant, want to encourage kids to reject their sex? And why aren’t the media covering this story?
It is the time-honored tradition of bigoted people: The disfavored minority is a danger to either women or children.
First of all, Billy Blowhard, gender identity is formed by about age two. Donohue is suggesting that the presence of a trans character can alter a child’s gender identity. In fact, the moron is claiming that the presence of a trans character “encourages” children to change their gender identity.
How fucking stupid is that? Mr. Blowhard goes a step further:
The message to children is: a boy can be a girl, and vice versa. Making this choice, they are told, is not something abnormal, it’s just “a little different.” Moreover, it can be “fun” to reject your sex and pretend that you belong to the opposite sex.
“The bigoted boob is actually saying that the intent of the character is to cause children to become transgender.”
The intended message to children is that people who are different aren’t bad people. Furthermore, how did this imbecile arrive at the notion that gender identity is a choice? Moreover, in accordance with incoherent Church teachings, Blowhard Bill Donohue intentionally ignores the construct of gender. “What the hell to those scientists know when Vatican eunuchs spout real truth?” Ugh.
… and a step further in the hyperbole Olympics:
This needs to be called out for what it is: child abuse. Anyone who is even remotely knowledgeable about what sex transitioning entails—the physical and psychological problems that boys and girls experience are multiple—knows how pernicious this process is. Seven in ten of those who transition are girls wanting to be boys, and the extent of their suffering is well documented.
The suffering of gender-diverse children is attributable to minority stress. Just who — I wonder — is responsible for inducing minority stress? Blowhard Bill Donohue?
Furthermore, Donohue has now come sufficiently unglued in defense of the dogma to assume the utterly idiotic proposition that children will transition due to the character; Gonzo.
Anyone who thinks that things can’t get much worse is a fool. If conservatives continue to retreat from controversial social and cultural issues, matters will only deteriorate. This is not about treating everyone with respect—that is not the issue—it is about shielding our children from those who want to sexually engineer them.
The bigoted boob is actually saying that the intent of the character is to cause children to become transgender. Apparently by protecting(?) kids from knowledge about sexual minorities, the children will not “choose” to be L,G,B or T.
The bullshit about “treating everyone with respect” is a lame attempt at self-inoculation. Donohue is essentially asserting that he is respectful of the people he disapproves of. Of all the lies in Blowhard Bill’s diatribe, that is the most implausible.
On what planet does any of this crap make any sense at all? Blowhard Bill Donohue would prefer that the kids grow up to be as ignorant, bigoted and disrespectful of others as he is.
