Transgender has two common definitions; both of them are forms of gender confusion:
- Similar to transsexual, but without having had a sex-change operation.
- As a synonym for transsexual.
The term "transgender" is not to be confused with a whole host of "gender identities" (which the left see as separate from biological sex) under the umbrella of genderqueer, which includes, besides transgender:
- Bigender (both man and woman)
- Agender (neither man nor woman)
- Genderfluid (alternating between genders)
- Third gender (found in, among other places, Indian culture, some Native American cultures, and also invented by modern-day people)
Reputable scientific & social organizations which affirm the validity of transgender people include the American Psychological Association, the American Medical Association and the American Psychoanalytic Association. This shows leftist bias in these organizations. According to a scientific study by Dr. Anthony Fauci's National Institutes of Health (NIH), transgenders are 49 times more likely to contract HIV (or AIDS) than non-transgenders.
Links to homosexuality
The link between seeking a sex change and sexual orientation is hotly disputed in the political arena of Western countries, where sex changes have had the most attention and debate. Some transgendered individuals consider themselves homosexual and some are heterosexual.
In California, the Transgender Respect, Agency, and Dignity Act mandates that males who identify as transgender, nonbinary, or intersex be housed with women. California is home to the largest women's prison system in the world. A feminist group, the Women's Liberation Front filed suit claim the California law can be considered cruel and unusual punishment, which is banned by the Eighth Amendment, and is also a violation of their 14th Amendment equal protection clause. The women in California prisons face “substantially increased risk of sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape, and physical violence,” as well as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and fear of attacks. The suit said women’s right to privacy is violated by having men around.
The lawsuit alleges that the “vast majority of women in prison have histories of sexual and/or domestic violence, committed against them by men.” WLF executive director Mahri Irvine said, according to Just the News. “Allowing men to be housed with women, such that female inmates are forced to live in close quarters with male inmates, including when engaged in daily activities that necessitate exposing one’s body to other inmates (such as when using a toilet, shower, or changing clothes), constitutes an egregious breach of the social norms that uphold women’s right to bodily privacy from men’s view, scrutiny, commentary, or presence,” the lawsuit said. “Some incarcerated women sharing a cell with a man, along with other women, now make sleep schedules among the women so that a woman is on watch to try to prevent rape by the male cellmate,” the lawsuit said.
According to the suit, when plaintiff Nadia Romero filed a complaint about being “grabbed by a man in her unit,” and plaintiff Krystal Gonzalez requested single-sex housing after a sexual assault, the gender of the attackers was listed as female, even though both were biological males. Doing so changes “the complaining inmate’s own words, perception, and substance of requested corrective action,” the lawsuit said.
“This anti-woman law was overwhelmingly accepted by the California State Assembly members, embraced by our representatives and lauded by our senators,” Ichikawa said. “Sadly, this even includes the California Women’s Caucus. We do not understand how so many people, especially women, had the audacity to turn a blind eye to this abuse.” Ichikawa said, "being degraded and humiliated is now part of the daily routine.”
