6.14 Why Not Call a He a Her?

If someone was born with male genes but is convinced they are a female and want to be referred to with pronouns of her and she, why not call them what they want to be called?  They might feel hurt if you refer to them as a male and they want to be called a female.  In addition you can get into a lot of trouble.  California passed a law criminalizing the use of pronouns a transgender doesn't want to be called, but that law was overturned in court for infringing on free speech..  New York City passed a similar law to California which to the best of my knowledge has not been overturned.  The department of education of NYC schools forbids calling someone from a pronoun they don't want.  If Jim comes to school one day and says I'm a she you better refer to Jim as she if you don't want to be punished by the school.  The school is required by the NYC DOE (Department of Education) to include lesssons about LGBTQ people.  According to NYC DOE rules a school can't keep a boy who says he's a girl out of a girl's bathroom even if the girls feel uncomfortable sharing a bathroom with him.  They can't do that even if they have a gender neutral bathroom that the boy could use instead.  What happens if you have someone who says they are gender fluid?  What happens if they say they are a boy one day and a girl the next?  Do they switch bathrooms?  The NYC DOE writes "For students who are gender fluid,  the school should work with the student to facilitate restroom and locker room access that affirms their identity.   So the answer is yes.

I certainly am not going to tell people who read this to break the law however wrong that law might be.  However those who go along with the dangerous transgender delusion that has hurt so many people are doing nothing to stop more people from being hurt by it. 

Matt Walsh made a video in which he criticized Macy Gray, a singer who first spoke the truth that being a woman isn't just about who you feel you are but after she was attacked online by the transgender/gay mob apologized for speaking the truth.

J.K.Rowling criticized Matt Walsh for saying that.  She tweeted:

"Endless death and rape threats, threats of loss of livelihood, employers targetted, physical harrassment, family address posted online with picture of bomb making manual aren't 'mean comments'.  If you don't yet understand what happens to women who stand up on this issue back off:

Matt Walsh is a courageous man who has stood up against the transgender delusion.  As a result he has been doxxed and been the target of death threats and all sorts of nastiness.  He does understand.  Despite this he speaks the truth. 

Even though J. K. Rowling defended Macy Walsh for folding in the face of attacks, she herself didn't fold. 

J.K. Rowling explained in 2020 what happened to her.  She wrote:

For people who don’t know: last December I tweeted my support for Maya Forstater, a tax specialist who’d lost her job for what were deemed ‘transphobic’ tweets. She took her case to an employment tribunal, asking the judge to rule on whether a philosophical belief that sex is determined by biology is protected in law. Judge Tayler ruled that it wasn’t.

J.K. Rowling was told that she was was literally killing trans people with her hate, cursed at and trans activists burned her books.  This was just because she said what was done to Maya Forstater was wrong.


What if a person is anorexic and believes that they are very fat when they really are thin.  Should you tell them they are thin?  They might be offended that you are implying that they are crazy and don't know what they are.  In order to not offend them you could agree with them when they say they are fat but then you are reinforcing their delusion and that encourages them to continue dieting.  What if the law said that you can't bully anorexics and people consider denying the anorexic's body image, bullying.  Then you could get in trouble for telling them the truth.  This is analogous to rules that force people to refer to someone as a she who is really a he and vice versa.What if you are a surgeon and an anorexic wanted liposuction to take off whatever fat she had left.  Should you do it or are you anorexophobic if you don't? 

People who push for men who claim to be women being able to use women's bathrooms pretend they are doing it out of compassion for those men who claim they are women trapped in men's bodies.  What about compassion for the women who feel uncomfortable having men in their bathroom?  Where is that compassion?  What about women who are worried that one of those men will assault them or videotape them?  LGBTQ activists say that women don't have to worry about that but there is plenty to worry about (click here and here and here and here and here and here if you would like to read about it).
