'Lady Ballers' expose absurdity and danger of trans-mania
By Pete Riehm

The news, opinion, and entertainment site Dailywire has produced a full-length comedy film spoofing the absolute absurdity of transgenderism and exposing the distinct danger of instituting disorder in every facet of society. Combining sharp wit, slapstick, and the idiotic silliness of transgender lunacy, “Lady Ballers” is a hilarious satire that bluntly butchers every sacred cow of LGBTQ+ orthodoxy. Sometimes campy but overall well done, this top streaming movie provides plenty of laughs for average Americans, but also common-sense perspective for concerned families worried about the overflowing filth in the public square.

The premise of the movie is a has-been high school basketball coach and his former state champion students stumble into a silly scheme to reclaim their glory days by competing in women’s sports. Reluctant at first, the now adult men embrace the fame and fortune when they realize they can handily dominate women is every sport, but eventually the coach realizes that mocking women in sports is very deleterious and plain wrong when his daughter wants to be a boy because boys are ostensibly better at everything. Worth watching, the entertaining “Lady Ballers” nails the utter insanity of transgenderism.

The craziest aspect of “Lady Ballers” is that this acute parody of the LGBTQ+ agenda accurately portrays how trans-mania is infecting every aspect of society. The ludicrous premises of transgenderism and lunatic LGBTQ+ policies are obvious and self-evident, so how did they ever gain acceptance?

What drives trans-mania or the imposition of LGBTQ+ tyranny? Some people simply disallow nature. They refuse to accept that there are only male and female, so they exhaust us with constant attempts to refashion some perversion of male or female or some grotesque combination of both. DailyWire’s Matt Walsh points out that no matter their contortions, whatever their demented minds conjure, it’s always still some form of male or female. The binary is axiomatic and inescapable.

Like the movie, some men want to ruthlessly compete with women for some demented self-aggrandizement, but it all stems from selfishness. Regardless of consequences or morality, too many just want to do whatever they want or deem right in their eyes. This intrinsic longing for decadent self-indulgence is quite simply sin. All men sin, but wise men are repentant whereas fools insist we not only condone their wickedness, but we must also approve and even endorse it. Ultimately, the LGBTQ+ movement plainly resents God.

Who supports trans-mania? Mostly, people who don’t really pay attention or understand the certain threat LGBTQ+ policies pose to a healthy society. They are apathetic or indifferent because they don’t what to make the effort to take a stand. Then there are those that demand their depravities be accepted and others that covet power over others. They hate nature’s immutable laws, but really these people just reject God.

But why? Transgenderism is so flawed and illogical, why would anyone follow or support it? The short answer is power, but most have a misconception of this power and a devious few seek to abuse that power.

The misled masses delude themselves that indulging whatever fetish or vice is freedom. Not understanding human nature and the laws of God, they first rebuff the concept of sin which is basically addiction to anything destructive and immoral, so they venture into sin unaware of the peril. They erroneously believe they can sin with impunity and control their sin all too often not realizing they have enslaved themselves to sin and lost control of their well-being. Consumed with lust for their own selfish desires, they have unwittingly lost liberty.

Those that covet power over others exploit the moral weakness of the hordes. They recognize that an immoral unvirtuous people are pliable and easily oppressed, because they are already in bondage to their own iniquitous insatiable proclivities. Therein lies the sinister scheme behind promoting the militant LGBTQ+ agenda. It promotes addiction, self-destruction, and immorality – all ingredients to enslave and oppress a people.

The ruling liberal elite and entertainment industry will howl bigotry and claim there is no right or wrong and that the concept of morality is outdated. Despite the precipitous societal decay for decades now, they will adamantly deny their policies are damaging our nation but notice none of our enemies allow and much less pursue such nonsense. They push it on us through social media because they know it will weaken America.

The assault on America is comprehensive, but Lady Ballers sounds the alarm specifically on the evils of transgenderism. These radical transgender activists are steadily undermining female sports until women and girls in sports will be eliminated. There will be no female sports and the binary paradigm will be banished so that no one speaks of women anymore.

The power-hungry leftists leading this charge ultimately want to erase womanhood from society. They replace “mother” with “birthing person.” Supreme Court Judges refuse to even define a woman like they don’t exist beyond patriarchal fabrications. They insist a man can menstruate, a man can get pregnant, and so on— any man can be a woman.

Women will still always exist, but their essence and existence will be denied – their purpose will be lost. The beleaguered protagonist in "Lady Ballers" explains the importance of women to dissuade his daughter from wanting to be a boy. He lists the many things that women excel at, but most important, women civilize men. Women protect procreation and uphold morality. They are the force for civilization. Without women, men would have no desire or reason for civilization. An uncivilized world is easier to subjugate, so it fits the need of the despotic globalist agenda for totalitarian rule – eradicate women to destroy society.

“Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled” (Titus 2:3-5).
