I do get so weary of the debate about transexuality. The worn out argument that trannies try to make is that, because about 1 in 1,000 live births involve Klinfelter’s syndrome, there can be no objective definition of what men and women are. That is silly nonsense. First, some biology:
Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. When we reproduce, the DNA in the reproductive cells splits, and those cells contain 23 chromosomes instead of 23 pairs. When a sperm and an egg meet, their DNA combines to again form 23 pairs.
The 23rd pair is the one that determines gender. In that 23rd pair, a man is one who has a Y chromosome as one of those chromosomes. All fetuses begin as female. The Y chromosome tells the developing fetus to grow male reproductive organs. Those reproductive organs then cause the development of secondary male characteristics like a male skeletal structure, etc. The absence of that Y chromosome means that the fetus remains female in structure.
That is how it is supposed to work, but there are sometimes defects that occur in that incredibly complex process. Perhaps the meiotic division in one of the parent haploid cells (its usually the mother’s) didn’t properly take place. In that case, the fetus winds up one chromosome (or part of one chromosome) too many or too few.
One chromosome missing means that one chromosome is left without its matching pair and is called a monosomy or partial monosomy. That usually results in miscarriage. Occasionally it doesn’t. If part of one chromosome is missing, this is called a partial monosomy. An example is part of the 5th pair missing, called Cri du chat syndrome. A missing chromosome at the 23rd pair can also be survivable. If there is only a single X and no matching X or Y, the fetus is female and has Turner’s syndrome. Is there is only a Y with no matching X, miscarriage. Less than 1 in 10,000 live births has a monosomy.
Sometimes there is one chromosome too many. This is called a trisomy, and trisomies are more survivable than monosomies. Trisomies are classified by which chromosomal pairs they occur at. For example, if the spare chromosome is in the:
- 13th pair, the resulting child has Patau’s Syndrome.
- 18th pair, the resulting child has Edwards’ Sydrome.
- 21st pair, the resulting child has Down’s Syndrome.
There are others, but you get the point. Trisomies are abnormal conditions. About 3 in every 1,000 live births has some sort of trisomy.
The one that the left is most concerned with is a trisomy at the 23rd pair, which results in XXY and is called Klinefelter’s syndrome. Since there is a Y chromosome present, a person with this syndrome usually has male genitalia, but occasionally will be indeterminate sex (also called intersex) or will appear female. People with Klinefelter’s are infertile and cannot reproduce, making it a genetic dead end. About 1 in 1,000 people have Klinefelter’s. It is a birth defect, no different than other genetic defects. That doesn’t mean we modify the definition of male and female so you can make the rest of us dance to your tune. The exception doesn’t mean that we change the rule.
Now to be clear, people with birth defects still have rights, are still human, and deserve treatment. What I have an issue with is people with mental problems latching on to a birth defect that happens in less than 0.5% of all humans and using that to justify their aberrant and sexually deviant behavior.
This is no different than a person faking a limp so they can park in handicapped parking, or go to the head of the line at a theme park. You are wearing the modern equivalent of blackface so that you can force the rest of us to treat your mental illness as if it were normal behavior.
If you want to believe that you are a different sex than the one you were born with, the odds are overwhelming that you do not have Klinefelter’s. You most likely have a mental illness. The fact that it has become trendy in some circles to pretend otherwise doesn’t change the objective facts.
Trannies can wear gender bending outfits. I don’t care, as long as you aren’t hurting anyone else. What I do care about is when you demand that the rest of us play along with your delusion or when you attempt to inflict it on children. Live and let live goes both ways. Stop trying to convert us into your mental illness.

It has also been pointed out that, as a right that is guaranteed under the First Amendment, that I can call anyone anything I want, personal “pronouns” notwithstanding, and there is absolutely nothing they can do about it. Just sayin’.

Excellent discourse. I’m saving this to send to others as the need arises (with credit to you of course. Love your blog – it’s a daily read.

23rd pair determines sex, not gender. Words in languages with declension have a gender, humans have a sex. It’s important not to swallow the Left’s bullshit when it comes to language.
Divemedic · September 9, 2022 at 7:38 pm
No. The sex versus gender thing is bullshit. Buying into that gaslighting BS is what the left is hoping for.
GBU43B · September 10, 2022 at 2:14 pm
Exactly! Humans have a sex, words have a gender. The Left are the one saying people can have both, and you’re buying into THAT bs by using gender in reference to men and women.
GBU43B · September 10, 2022 at 2:16 pm
Yes. The gaslighting BS is using both terms in reference to men and women.

The remarkable thing about this is how it has become a fad, like a hair style or clothing. I read one woman saying that her junior high-aged daughter had several friends that declared they were really boys. Several? With a 0.3% chance, having one actual trans friend would be remarkable.
Ann Coulter (whom I almost never read anymore) had a piece on Taki magazine that’s a little eye opening, and points in the same direction.

Great plumbing argument that ignore the more germane wiring problem.
I love how many people act like the people dealing with sexual dysphoria are unaware that their bodies don’t match their mental image.
It’s not a genetics problem, it’s a psychological one and (say it with me) there is no actual cure that isn’t worse than the problem in most cases and even worse there is no universal cure that works for everyone.
So you get stuck treating symptoms. Alleviating the suffering because the wiring cannot be repaired. Fucking with the plumbing often makes things worse.
I want the magic wand that lets these people (and they are people) look in the mirror and see themselves as they are and be OK with it.
I don’t have it, and neither do you.

Trannies, at least the males one, are seriously menially ill with sexual dysphoria being just part of a broad spectrum of mental health conditions. They have very high institutionalize rates and very high attempted (and successful) suicide rates. 20x plus the normal population rate according to their own support groups.
In my experience based on seeing a very large sample (lived in San Francisco for many years due to career) male trannies are almost always sociopaths / psychopaths. Thoroughly unpleasant people, both pre op and post op. Their behavior patterns are straight up BPD / ASPD. Same kind of mind games.
The female trannies are usually indistinguishable from bull-dykes. So not exactly nice people either.
TV’s and drag queens can be bitchy at times but are quite sane. Give or take. True physical hermaphrodites, very rare, are pretty normal people. All things considered. There was one in my high school many years ago. No one paid them the slightest attention. Just one of the students.

Other serious defects include a lack of limbs or extra limbs, so I guess having two legs and two arms is just a social construct?
