Beware the Unintended Consequences

Funereal Lamentations

There is an ancient saying: when you sow to the wind, you risk reaping the whirlwind.  It is a metaphorical warning.  Another variant of the same sentiment is, what goes around comes around.  These patterns are manifestations of God's justice at work in the world.  

The lesbian worldview has been promoted as a glorification of the sisterhood.  Women within and amongst themselves are complete.  But now the whirlwind has come.  The sisterhood risks being struck down and brought to nothing by trans-genderism.  The latter is the self-same wind to which numerous women have sown over the years.  But this time the wind has returned in an altered garb and it tears at the paper-thin fabric of lesbianism.  It is showing it has the will and desire to make lesbianism null and void.

Once the lesbian movement could count on the socially liberal, the Chattering Classes, for support.  No longer.  They have abandoned the celebration of lesbianism and moved on to the next cause, the next iteration.  The next iteration is tearing down whatever constrains and binds.  It  is tearing down the protections and constraints and ideologies of lesbianism.  Beware the unintended consequences.  There is always a whirlwind following the wind.
A bill that would make it easier for people to change the gender on their birth certificate will put women and girls in danger, the Lesbian Rights Alliance Aotearoa says.
  "The recommendation by select committee to remove all safety mechanisms from the legal sex change process puts women and girls in danger. This is not a left-right issue, it's a 'do you care about women's safety?' issue," the Lesbian Rights Alliance Aotearoa (LRAA) said in a statement.

If Parliament adopts the recommendations of the Governance and Administration Committee on the Births, Deaths, Marriages and Relationships Registration Bill, people will be able to change genders on their birth certificate by way of a statutory declaration instead of needing confirmation by a judge, under a bill reported back to Parliament.

They will also have options others than male or female – the options of "intersex" or "X (unspecified)" will also be available.  The move would bring it into line with passports and drivers' licences, committee chairman and National MP Brett Hudson said.

But the LRAA said it would make it impossible for females to retain the right to female-only or lesbian-only spaces, services and provisions because any male could simply declare he was female and have every legal right to use them.

"At present, New Zealand law requires a burden of proof in order to change legal sex. There is a Family Court process to ensure abusers do not take advantage of the system. A shift to simply filling out a statutory declaration form to change sex with no oversight shows a blatant disregard for women's human rights," the alliance said.  "This move risks the safety of women in prisons, the continuation of women-only and lesbian-only organisations, and ultimately renders the sex discrimination protections in the Human Rights Act meaningless."  [NZ Herald. Emphasis, ours]
Yup and yes.  The whirlwind ripping lesbianism to shreds is that gender is now a nothing, of no significance whatsoever.   It is no more significant than what set of clothes one chooses to put on in the morning.  Some days one favours one outfit; another day will present to us a different ensemble hanging in the wardrobe.  It makes no difference ultimately.  Clothes are thereby unimportant and insignificant.

Note what has happened--within a nano-second.  Gender is so important to one's identity, well-being, and happiness that it must be chosen.  It only comes to a position of being truly honoured and celebrated when it is a matter of freewill choice.  If gender is something one inherits at birth, if it is determined, then (runs the argument) gender is degraded.  It is only when one gets to choose freely one's gender that one's identity is truly magnified and honoured.  It is only then that one can be like the gods.  It is only then that one is truly fulfilled. But the immediate flipside is the exact opposite: if gender can be freely chosen it is as common and profane as choosing a different set of clothes.  It is unimportant, insignificant, with no more substance than one's choice of the daily ensemble.

Who would have thought that the "sex discrimination protections in the Human Rights Act" would become meaningless.  Behold the whirlwind.  Our culture has sowed to the wind--rebelling against God and His law--and now the rebellion has gathered strength.  It is coming back as a tornado, ripping everything to shreds.

Here are at least two unintended consequences.  Lesbianism--female homosexuality--becomes a bit of detritus floating in the wind.  Secondly, one's gender is clearly nothing, of no importance or significance whatsoever in the grand scheme of things.  It can be changed at will, like changing one's outfit.  Doubtless that is why so many young people who attempt gender transitioning end up being suicidal.  Within a very brief time, gender is nothing--which is to say that the victim of gendercide must also be nothing.  Death is better than perpetual insignificance.

Let the funereal lamentations begin.  Oh . . . they already have.  Suicide rates amongst the gender transitioned are not just macabre--they are heartbreaking.
Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel?  [Ezekiel 33:11]
