Stealing Gender From a Baby

A Canadian child born last November is thought to be the first person in the world issued a government health card without a gender designation.

Prediction: This child will grow up to have severe and perhaps incurable emotional problems.

The baby’s mother, one Kori Doty, is a chick who thinks she’s a dude.

NBC News refers to Kori as “a non-binary transgender person who prefers the pronouns ‘they/them,’” which only proves that NBC News is part of the problem here.

Compounding matters, Kori refers to herself as “a non-binary genderqueer trans person” who lives in “occupied British Columbia Canada.” Eager to share, she claims she’s “struggled with mental illness, explored gender transitions, explored fertility + pregnancy, lived with a connective tissue disorder, and pursued healing in many modalities.”

In a press release on her website, Kori defends her decision not to “gender” the baby, who is currently named Searyl Atli Doty:

I do not gender my child. It is up to Searyl to decide how they identify, when they are old enough to develop their own gender identity. I am not going to foreclose their choices based on an arbitrary assignment of gender at birth based on an inspection of their genitals.

“Prediction: This child will grow up to have severe and perhaps incurable emotional problems.”

Oh, shove it up your mustachioed nostrils, lady. Does this daffy broad even know what the word “arbitrary” means? No one’s “assigning gender” based on a whim—they merely check whether the baby has a penis or vagina and realize that the baby’s gender has already been assigned—by nature, not society. It’s this way throughout the animal kingdom and always has been, until far-left mental cases came along denying the stark realities of sexual dimorphism.

The British Columbia Medical Services Plan played right along with Kori’s delusions and issued the baby an ID card that designates the infant’s sex as “U,” which I’ll assume means “unknown,” “unassigned,” “undetermined,” or maybe just “ugly.”

Making things all the more creepy, Doty’s lawyer is a woman named barbara findlay who insists on spelling her name without capital letters, but just to be passive-aggressive, I’ll spell it “Barbara Findlay.” Miss Barbara Findlay again raises the specter of newborn genital inspection almost as if it’s child rape:

The assignment of sex in this culture is done when a medical person lifts up the legs and looks at the baby’s genitals. But we know that the baby’s own gender identity will not develop for some years until after they’re born.

As luck would have it, this arbitrary and even whimsical “assignment of sex” just so happens to correspond to the infant’s eventual “gender identity” in around 199 of every 200 cases. And one could make a more compelling argument that instead of being “trapped in the wrong body,” these unfortunates were “saddled with a brain that tells them they’re something they’re not.”

Canada’s Gender-Free I.D. Coalition celebrated Searyl Atli Doty’s genderless ID card. Entering a parallel universe where true is false and up is down, the Coalition insists that when the state notes a baby’s gender on an ID card, “it is certifying as true something it cannot know to be true.” The Coalition’s home page belches out the following nugget of counterfactual nonsense:

END STATE-ASSIGNED GENDER! The State has no business in the undies of the nation.

If they believed that even for a minute, they wouldn’t be constantly petitioning state healthcare to fund puberty blockers and hormone injections and radical genital reconstructive surgery. They wouldn’t demand that taxpayers abjectly capitulate to the patently false notion that in order to become “who they truly are,” someone with gender dysphoria needs to hack and saw and stitch and inject and mutilate themselves beyond any recognizable semblance of the body that nature originally gave them. If they were even remotely tethered to reality, they’d admit that the phrase “the gender they were assigned at birth” is a convoluted and dishonest way of saying “their gender.”

Even more ominously, last month the province of Ontario passed a law that would effectively make criminals of parents who disapproved of their child’s chosen “gender identity,” labeling them “child abusers” and risking total loss of custody.

At eight months old, little Baby Doty is the youngest case I’ve heard of where a parent attempts to drag their spawn down this gender-indeterminate ideological rabbit hole. But they’re trainin’ ’em young these days. In 2015, a British mother declared that her three-year-old boy was actually a girl after she allegedly found him trying to cut off his penis. In Australia last year, officials confirmed that a four-year-old child had commenced with a “gender transition.” Last year in London, a nine-year-old girl who decided she’s actually a boy named Jason began receiving hormone-blocking injections to prevent uncomfortable social constructs such as female breasts from appearing.

Then there’s the sudden trend of “men” giving birth. Here’s the heartwarming (heartworming?) story of a “British man” who somehow was born a woman and retained the ability to shoot a baby out of her womb. Last year TIME magazine featured a story with an absolutely disgusting photo (I warned you!) and a title that included the phrase “My Brother’s Pregnancy.” Last summer The Guardian ran an article titled “Breastfeeding as a trans dad.” In January, National Geographic—which is nothing more than a Cultural Marxist echo chamber set on autopilot these days—devoted an entire issue to the “Gender Revolution.”

Is it a revolution, or is it just revolting?

The mainstream media’s utter surrender to the modern Gender Delusion constitutes the hugest abdication of journalistic standards I’ve seen in my lifetime, and that’s saying a mouthful. Almost across the board, they’ve swallowed this insane gender-denial rhetoric and will obediently refer to men as women and women as men and boys will be girls and girls will be boys. There’s no such thing as “transphobia,” but it appears that uncomfortably large swaths of the public are absolutely terrified of reality.

What’s even more depressing for someone who’s already depressed about the human condition is how many people have willingly fallen into line with this nonsense. A mere ten years ago, hardly anyone besides a puny handful of “queer theorists” believed this bullshit. When I was a kid, the case of Christine Jorgensen’s sexual-reassignment surgery was considered the most shocking abomination in the history of humankind—far worse than even rape or murder.

But now, despite the astronomical suicide rates of people with gender dysphoria and the stratospheric healthcare costs that will result if physicians continue to enable the disorder rather than treat it, we’re trained under threat of perpetual social ostracism to pretend it’s all healthy and good, and that anyone who thinks otherwise is really the “sick” one.

Yes, I realize that in order to embrace the egalitarian lies of leftism, one must be systematically exposed to relentless propaganda and shaming. But with this whole “trans” thing, I think they may be overplaying their hand.

Society is still sane enough to realize that it’s unhealthy for an anorexic woman to think she’s obese, for a white person to think they’re black, and for someone with body integrity identity disorder to suffer a constant urge to saw off one of their limbs. But we’re expected to think it’s not only healthy for a man to think he’s a woman—and now for a boy to think he’s a girl—it’s also righteous.

Sometimes I think the powers that be are fucking with us just to see how much nonsense we’ll believe.
