Stop! Men are not women
By Pete Riehm
March 22, 2022

We are obviously well on our way to the dystopian society in George Orwell’s novel, “1984.” Addressing and allowing obvious men to pretend they are women is as absurd and egregious as the “party” in 1984 insisting the citizens agree 2 + 2 = 5. It is no less malicious and just as dangerous and deleterious. The ruling elite in big tech, entertainment, and government are literally using psychological operations against Americans to brainwash us, to manipulate our thoughts, and ultimately control us. It’s so heinous it should infuriate and frighten Americans, but we seem to just watch in disbelief and disgust.

Less than just a generation ago, it would have been too silly and stupid to actually treat men as women; and even crazier to actually believe it. Now it’s not just mainstream; it’s expected. Adidas athletic wear recently produced an ad glorifying men pretending to be women athletes; the theme was a preposterous notion that nothing is “impossible” because “I’m possible.” How are men trouncing women in every sport somehow defeating the impossible?! That’s why we have sports segregated by gender because as the ladies are learning, women almost never win competing against men.

The male University of Pennsylvania swimmer, William Thomas has singlehandedly turned women’s collegiate swimming into a farce. After swimming three years on the men’s team, William grew out his hair and joined the girls, but he is still a dude who doesn’t even try to conceal his manhood in skimpy women’s swimsuits. He appears to be parading his package as he flaunts every new broken record and victory over the women.

This travesty will turn into tragedy as this transgender lunacy will destroy female sports. Seriously, why should women even bother because they know they will lose to whatever self-absorbed fruit cake decides he wants a women’s trophy? And how is this fair to the female athletes that sacrifice and train hard for years, but now can never win? Where are the feminists? What is more misogynist that making women compete with men only so they can lose? Talk about domination, but the feminists are MIA because they support dismantling binary society and shredding traditional culture.

The brainwashing is brazen and bold. It’s not like the examples are men who could genuinely be mistaken for being a woman; and those do exist. William Thomas doesn’t even try to act like a girl and the Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services, Rachel Levine, or whatever his name is, in no way acts or looks like a woman. But the ruling leftists demand we indulge their delusions and participate in their perversions.

No one says these lost souls cannot have their degenerate fantasies, but not everything is compatible. Is your career or sport more important, or your fetish? One personal fetish should not punish an entire sport; life sometimes demands tough choioces. And, no one should be forced to enable their sickness. Oh but, the pronoun police will come after you if your refuse to play along. That seems silly and perhaps harmless, but it’s actually quite an aggressive attempt to change language and ultimately control thought.

The biology is indisputable, but the psychology is perilous. Just like in 1984 when the “Party” forced citizens to admit 2+2=5, our ruling elite is trying to coerce the masses into accepting a falsehood and even endorsing it. Men are not women, but pressuring people to deny an obvious truth is not about the lie or even transgender misfits, it’s about conditioning. It’s about manipulating the mind to obey the master regardless of reason or truth. All of this nonsense has a purpose; and that is controlling the masses.

Leftists are longing to breakdown citizens and their penchant for liberty; and then remold them into zombie consumers that only care about their gluten-free lattes, streaming entertainment, and virtual video games. Once the people embrace one falsehood and get comfortable with blind obedience, the ruling class will strip us of our rights and we won’t care or resist. All of the transgender twaddle from boys in the girls’ room or competing on the girl’s team to ridiculous new pronouns is all intended to wipe away the moral foundations of American society. When we have no traditional values to stand on, we will fall for whatever leftist lie or gimmick they try. No culture survives that replaces truth with falsehoods.

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5).
