A mad man says that there is nothing wrong with his common sense except that whenever he wants to say one thing another thing comes out of his mouth. That is a mad man for you. When last did you encounter a mad person? I am asking you this question because madness is a serious ailment that should elicit human pity and concern. Instead of laughing at mad men and women we should devise ways of rendering them immediate medical assistance. There are different types of madness or what is termed neurosis or mental disorder. Given our limited time and space, it is impossible to attempt an enumeration let alone exhaustive commentary on the different types of madness afflicting mankind. But there is one 21st Century madness that is on the increase today: it is called transgender madness, that is, a madness that makes a man to lose his common sense and start claiming that he is a woman (with or without a prior sex reassignment surgery), or, a woman to lose her common sense and start claiming that she is a man (with or without out a prior sex reassignment surgery).
In fact in the last few years, the world has witnessed a tremendous increase in transgender madness. For example, in 2015 a 52-year old married man called Stefonknee Wolscht who had fathered seven children suddenly abandoned his wife and seven children and started claiming that he had “transgendered” into a six-year-old girl. Today, Stefonknee lives in Toronto with his ‘adoptive mommy and daddy’ as a six-year-old girl. Even though Stefonknee still has the features, psychological traits and anatomy of a 52-year-old man, his adoptive ‘mommy and daddy’ treat him like a six old girl. For instance, they always dress up Stefonknee in children’s clothing and allow him to be playing with dolls. During his interview, this 52-year-old bald-headed man who was caught by the camera sitting down and playing with dolls, said: ‘I can’t deny I was married. I can’t deny I have children. ‘But I’ve moved forward now and I’ve gone back to being a child. I don’t want to be an adult right now. I have a mommy and a daddy – an adopted mommy and daddy – who are totally comfortable with me being a little girl. And their children and their grandchildren are totally supportive.’ In May this year the New York Times reported that a Detroit mother called Erica decided one day that she preferred to be a father instead of a mother. So she changed her name to Eric and started calling herself a man. On noticing his mother’s madness, this woman’s son also became mad. He said that he was fed up being a boy, so he took up a girl gender and became a ‘girl’. So in one fell swoop, a mother and a son became mad and rejected their God-given genders. While the mother claimed she had become a father, her son claimed that he had become a daughter.
But one transgender madness that has been eliciting many commentaries since April 2017 is the one afflicting a 15-year old boy called Andraya Yearwood. Andraya is muscular male of a student of the Cromwell High School in Connecticut, United States of America. He even has a mustache. Andraya’s Dad is a black American but interestingly his Mum is a Nigerian called Ngozi (Nigerians are everywhere). Even though Andraya is yet to undergo a sex reassignment surgery, he claims that he is a girl. He had been nursing the ambition of participating in the school girls’ athletic competition. Eventually, last April Andraya was allowed to participate in the girls’ track race. Naturally being a strong boy man he ran faster than the girls and finished the race far ahead of other girls who had trained very hard for the race. Andraya’s parents and the school authorities congratulated Andraya for the feat. But surprisingly none of them commented on the biological fact that Andraya was a boy competing among girls.
Unfortunately, some Nigerians are suffering from transgender madness. For instance, if you Google: “transgender madness in Nigeria” you will find the queer-looking photographs of some Nigerian men who now claim that they are women. One of the strange-looking characters is a hater of God. He says that as far as he is concerned there is no God. Another funny-looking creature among them said that although she was born a female in Nigeria she later relocated to the United States and became a male there after undergoing a gender-reassignment. This lady said that she had had twenty surgical procedures including on-going hormonal treatments to become the male she now claims she is.
Absurdity. Comical. Stupidity. Isn’t? That is why transgender madness shall never be your portion in Jesus name !. Amen ! None of your children or grand children or any member of your family or relative shall suffer from transgender madness in Jesus name !. Amen !. What is the main cause of transgender madness? The LGBTQ disease. The LGBTQ liberalism that gives the word gender a social construct instead of a biological construct has given birth to strange disease which is causing madness in so many people today otherwise why should a 52-year old married man with seven children get up one morning start claiming that he is now a six-year-old girl? The transgender movement is the effort to distort the basic anthropological assumptions about the human person. Transgenderism denies the biological basis of manhood and womanhood. Transgenderism is anti-God. It is anti-natural. It is anti-human. Transgenderism originated in the radical feminist work which started after World War II. The founding mother of radical feminism is French thinker called Simone de Beauvoir. She is the author of the book entitled: The Second Sex. The book was published in 1953. This strange woman started her book with this query: ‘What is a woman?’ Her answer to this query led to the formulation of the contemporary feminist thought. For example, she scribbled in her book that it is society, not God, that determines who is a man or a woman. In other words, gender is purely a social construct, not a biological construct. That is, despite one’s biological sex the society has a final say in defining who is a man or who is a woman. Gender is in constant flux. You can decide to be a man today and tomorrow decide to be a woman.
But why the transgender madness is the greatest madness of the 21st Century is that it is a madness that tries to erase the natural law and human nature which are at the heart of every human civilization. Human nature is an unchanging reality which transcends time and history. No amount of surgical procedures and hormonal treatments will make a man to become a woman and vice-versa. You cannot change the intrinsic traits in a man or a woman with surgical procedures. If you are in doubt just take another studied look at the creatures now claiming that they have transgendered into either male or female. If you do so I am sure you will feel pity for them.
