Remember back in the day? Ahhh, the '80s and early '90s...
The hippies, the war protester/activist era had all but faded away. Long hair, tattoos and piercings on men were slowly becoming more acceptable to society. Even business men and woman started to take on the body ink without much thought.
The clothing of the '70s had mostly become a thing of the past. With a booming economy and not much left to protest, American teens and young adults started new trends. Mohawks - brightly colored, piercings galore, funky loud clothes, dark clothing with blackened hair and nails, bouffant hair and so much more!
They were the pioneers of a new age. Gratification came in "shocking all" of normal society. Although we weren't so quick to accept the changes, many of us hoped it would just fade away. But we learned to grow and accept it as an evolution of society. As most trends or fads come and go, it seemed that the '80s were going to hang out for the entire decade.
Teens and young adults were empowered by being different and making others squirm! In the '90s, the rise of technology like cellular phones, home gaming systems and computers opened the door for a new era. The technology created by grown and educated adults were paving a new road for the new era. Occupied by the new technologies of the 1990s and newest millennium, teens and young adults latched on! Gaming, hacking, chatting, text messaging, dating, etc., with electronic devices was huge and growing by the second.
Fast forwarding to today, teens and young adults have reinvented themselves by "shocking all" in the new found transgender role. The boredom of electronics and lack of instant gratification begins. Most of today's parents either having lived or grown up in the '70s & '80s, brought a less shocked outlook to newer progressive behaviors in their children.
That was until "Transgender" became a thing. Transgender has become the new Mohawk – brightly colored, the new-wave/gothic persona that freaked many of us out. While good parents are clamoring to find help for their children's dysfunctionality of transgenderism, the media has all but influenced society that this is perfectly normal behavior.
In May 2019 The World Health Organization, under pressure from the liberal media's influences removed "Gender Nonconformity" from the classification as a mental disorder. As the progressives celebrated their victory, young children and teens begin to fall between the cracks.
Since the World Health Organization's depraved decision to discount young children and teens mental issues and woes of societal pressures, teen suicide is on the rise. Parents are being told by psychologists that this is now normal behavior. Having the desire to be something you are not isn't the issue. We were hopefully told as children by our parents or at least one good mentor that "we can be anything we want to be when we grow up!"
However, most of us are certain that removing body parts, adding fake organs or features and calling yourself something other than what you were born as was not in the cards. We may not be able go as far to say that all experimenting "transgender" children or teens are mentally ill, we can assume that a desire to remove genitalia, breast implants for boys, adding genitalia to girls, etc., is definitely and by all meanings or definitions of the words a "Mental Illness" that requires some form of treatment or intervention.
As a parent struggling to understand and watching my significant other also struggle to provide guidance and assistance to her teen that has transgender tendencies, there is no avail. The liberal society has disregarded our children's mental health.
The World Health Organization does not care about our children's mental condition or future ability to become productive in society. They have been tossed out like the trash on garbage day. Transgenderism has become the product of the longstanding mental illnesses of the liberal thought process where you can be "ANYTHING" you want. It doesn't have to be real, you can just make it up and call it what you want to call it.
It doesn't matter how extreme or unrealistic it is. No matter how many body parts you add or take away, you are still a human male or female. But this doesn't stop liberals or liberal organizations from trying to tell us or our children otherwise.
As the teenagers and young adult population suffers from gender euphoria while attempting or successfully committing suicide at alarming rates, liberals celebrate victories in the name of equality.
Let's get one thing straight; We have allowed society to twist our children's minds so badly that they don't even know what they are. We should be disgusted with ourselves for not standing up and fighting harder than ever to save our children. I ask the question: Who the hell is The World Health Organization to tell us that this is normal behavior for our children?
With all of the things we could be doing to help stop the madness and appropriately help our children, we are in another predicament while our children suffer the consequences for the lack of actions. As parents, we not only have the absolute right to decide what is normal for our children, we have a responsibility.
Your rights as parents are being infringed upon more and more every day and it has to stop! When will America wake up and fight for their rights?
