I’ve written before -- indeed, more than once -- about the Left’s assertion of the power to overrule reality merely by denying it. Here’s one of the most blatant recent cases thereof:
Transgender teens Claire, Devon, Arin and Katie have set out to expose the harsh reality of modern, teen relationships.
Appearing in a new BBC Three documentary, Young, Trans and Looking for Love, they let viewers see a glimpse of their lives as they struggle to find love.
The doc shows the moment Claire, from Virginia, meets a guy that she likes, only to be rejected by him as soon as he finds out she was born a boy....
Claire has also begun making social media diaries of her transition, sharing her experiences with transgender teens across the world.
Hoping on finding a boyfriend, she reveals that she doesn't like telling people the truth and is desperate for an operation.
She says: "In a lot of ways, I don't like telling a guy. Once I tell him all respect goes out of the window.
"Straight guys just can't get over you having the male parts.”
Well, “Claire” dear, that’s because they’re straight. You, on the other hand, are not. Had you retained the appearance of a boy and gone shopping for a homosexual boyfriend, you’d have known far fewer rejections, and much less trouble overall. Didn’t that ever occur to you?
I don’t advocate rubbing others’ faces in their delusions; depending on the character of the deluded person, it can be quite dangerous. But that’s not what’s at issue here. “Claire” is unhappy because regular boys around her age are unwilling to sign onto her delusion. Compelling others to join you in any of your opinions isn’t a privilege a decent society confers upon anyone.
A vagrant thought: Should something horrible happen to “Claire” – and pray God nothing ever does – her remains would plainly reveal her to be male. The coroner would be forced to choose between listing her true sex or her assumed one on her death certificate. Which finding do you think he’d rather defend in a court of law?
