Truth is truth.
Between the truth and a lie, there is no third option.
However, much of the world, including the federal government of one of the greatest Western world powers begs to differ.
We are living in the age of the third option.
That is exactly what is happening to the “gender” section of German birth certificates, now that a top court in Germany just ruled that parents must be allowed a third option on which to record the details of their offspring’s birth.
This is one of the most absurd denials of basic reality we’ve seen yet!
Right next to the physically irrefutable facts of a baby’s weight, length, time of birth, mother, and father, parents will be able to pretend the baby has no gender.
While the very first thing a doctor normally says upon the birth of a baby is “it’s a boy!” or “it’s a girl!” doctors will now presumably be expected to say….”it’s a baby!” although that is of course as obvious as a newborn baby’s gender.
According to the BBC, those campaigning for this decision were concerned about intersex people, who make up 1.7% of the world’s population and are not to be confused with transgender people.
“Intersex” is a term used to refer to people with any number of physical or genetic conditions that may have genitalia that have both male and female characteristics.
Transgenderism, on the other hand, is the result of a neurological condition in which people “feel” as though they are the opposite sex.
Leftists typically cite intersex people as a means to justify gender fluidity, but in reality, it is no different than gender dysmorphia. It is an ailment, not an identity. While one certainly has empathy for intersex people, their mere existence does not in any way prove that gender is fluid, rather the opposite. Intersex people are called thus because of the physical aspects of their genitalia, hence, people who have distinctly male or female genitalia obviously also have a clearly defined gender.
As for the German birth certificates, it is understandable that parents would want an option for intersex babies. However, it has been possible in Germany to leave gender blank on a birth certificate since 2013.
So why do they need a third option?
Because it’s 2017, of course.
How sad to think that parents upon the birth of a beautiful, precious little miracle, will immediately take to denying one of the most fundamental characteristics of their child: its gender.
Dear Lord, what is this world coming to?
