“… transgender persons are biologically their gender identity as much as they are biologically their chromosomes.”

On Friday, Matt Walsh was suspended from Twitter because of two transphobic tweets:
Matt Walsh BS
Matt Walsh BS

First of all, Blabbermouth Walsh is scientifically incorrect. Gender identity has a durable biological basis. Therefore, transgender persons are biologically their gender identity as much as they are biologically their chromosomes.

Secondly, transgender persons do not seek, and sure as hell do not require, Matt Walsh’s approval.

Furthermore, according to medical science, a transgender person is, for all intents and purposes, their gender identity.

Mr. Walsh doesn’t care about the science. Walsh is a vain conservative Christian — presumably a Catholic — and that supersedes objective truth.

All that aside, what is his point? What has he accomplished by insulting a minuscule percentage of the population? Is this to construct a “LOOK AT ME!” moment?

Furthermore, perhaps Walsh is jealous. On her very worst day, Dr. Levine is smarter and more accomplished than Mr. Walsh will ever be. That jeopardy champion speaks for herself. How would Matt Walsh do in competition with her? I think we already know the answer.

Walsh deleted his transphobic tweets and 12 hours later, Twitter reinstated the account. What did Walsh do?

“Gender incongruence is a natural phenomenon. It takes bigots like Matt Walsh to turn that into gender dysphoria.”

If you see the above tweet you will know that Twitter did not take it down. If you can read the tweet then consider all of the mystical things that Walsh has been fooled into believing starting with the notion that some Vatican eunuch is an expert regarding human sexuality.

Meanwhile Walsh is spreading conspiracy theories regarding January 6 along with misinformation about COVID vaccines. I am sure that doing so has an important civil purpose. Right?

The Internet has made stars out of people who say things that other people want to hear; regardless of the truth of what they say. Because it is what the masses want to hear in order to confirm their biases, they do not ask any questions. Nothing gets vetted. Intellectual curiosity and critical thinking are amalgamated as they go down the crapper together.

The simple fact is that transgender persons know things about human sexuality that we cisgender folks cannot ever understand. In a different civilization trans folks might be venerated rather than victims of minority stress.

Gender incongruence is a natural phenomenon. It takes bigots like Matt Walsh to turn that into gender dysphoria. And for what? To possibly gain the approval of a deity who probably doesn’t exist in the first place. If s/he does exist then his or her disposition is likely to include the disapproval of people who promote divisiveness in his or her name.
