WHY DO PARTISANS of the macabre ideology pushing the normalization and bizarre “celebration” of anatomically and biologically aberrant, morally deviant sexual behavioral choices, or aberrosexualism, refer to people's sex by the incorrect, unscientific, grammatical term “gender” rather than the correct, scientific term “sex”?
Is there more here than meets the eye? Is this an honest mistake or another cold and calculated abuse and manipulation of language by ideological extremists for psychological rhetorical advantage?
Rather than being a means of communicating reality and the truth, language today is being misused to control and manipulate people for ideological ends. The mediating character of language is being corrupted. Through propaganda and an unethical fakestream media, anti-human ideologies are systematically distorting words and destroying their meaning. They communicate apparent realities whose fictive character falsifies, misinforms, and destroys the very meaning of things.
GENDER vs. SEX
Sex is the objective, specific, scientific name for the biological and physiological reality of male and female. Sex is a precisely determinable genetic fact; a scientifically demonstrable biological reality referring to persons or animals. As such, like it or not, an individual's sex can never be altered or changed. While an individual's physical appearance can be cosmetically changed or modified, or their personal opinion as to their sex can change; their DNA, genetic makeup, or chromosomes can never be altered.
By contrast, “gender” is the grammatical category or class of nouns and pronouns in languages. Words and objects have a "gender," human beings have a sex. However, aberrosexualist ideologues, those seeking to legitimize and normalize anatomically and biologically aberrant sexual behavioral choices, have cavalierly morphed the term “gender” into an ideological euphemism denoting an individual’s personal opinion or self-perception of their sex. So “gender” is now being pushed as a propaganda term to conceal the unchangeable, biological reality of sex. Even the Oxford English Dictionary admits that “gender” is an ideologically imposed “euphemism” for a human being’s sex, intended “to emphasize the social and cultural, as opposed to the biological distinctions between the sexes.”
SCIENCE vs. SUPERSTITION
In its most recent “Media Reference Guide,” or style manual, the Gay (sic) and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) insists that sex is "the classification of people as male or female" at birth, based on bodily characteristics such as chromosomes, hormones, internal reproductive organs, and genitalia. Gender is "one's internal, personal sense of being a man or woman (or a boy or a girl).”
To justify their ideological prejudices, biases and superstitions, feminists and aberrosexualists ludicrously argue that “gender” is totally undetermined by and has absolutely nothing to do with sex. Read, for example, The Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution, an important and widely influential aberrosexualist/feminist text.
By using the term “gender,” aberrosexualist and feminist ideologues push the superstition that sex depends not on scientifically demonstrable, genetically provable, biological characteristics and features, but on someone’s fantasy to be whatever sex they wish or feel they are. This conveniently lets aberrosexualists and feminists acknowledge the natural differences in the sexes, differences they simply cannot deny without appearing insane, while they illogically attack the so-called “gender inequalities” they claim need to be abolished.
BIOLOGICAL REALITY vs. BEHAVIORAL PREFERENCE
Evolutionary psychologist Michael E. Mills is among the many scientists who have openly condemned the use of the ideological euphemism “gender” rather than the objective words "sex" or “sexual.” Mills suggested in 2011 that the sex/gender distinction is inappropriate, misleading and counter-productive because it erroneously presupposes that an individual’s sex can be partitioned into objective, biological factors, on the one hand, and, freely-chosen behavioral preferences or subjective psychological opinions, on the other.
THE BOTTOM LINE
“Gender” is the unscientific, ideological euphemism-of-choice of aberro/feminist ideologues; "sex" or "sexual" are the precise, scientific, objective terms used by normal, unbiased, science-based people. “Gender identity” and “gender expression” are also non-scientific, ideological terms, i.e., terms pushing an ideological position. Both terms are difficult if not impossible to scientifically interpret and define.
Bear in mind that you reinforce extremists' lies and confusion whenever you use aberrosexualist propaganda terms or expressions like "biological male," "biological female," or "gender.” As far as the facts are concerned, a so-called ‘biological male’ is and always will be a male, and a so-called "biological female" is and always will be a female. Yes, people can cosmetically alter their physical appearance, but they can never change the chromosomes that make them a man or a woman until the day they die.
It is completely contrary to sound public policy to grant individuals the baseless so-called “right” to legally disregard and openly misrepresent their sex as this unjustly forces on everyone the insane idea that individuals can disregard and misrepresent their age, their color, race, or any other biological reality.
MUTUALLY EXCLUDING FACTS
The irony of it all is that the same jokers that adamantly insist you believe that an individual's sexual behavioral choices are genetically hard-wired; are a part of their very identity, and, therefore, can never change, dogmatically insist that you believe the absurd superstition that an individual's biological sex is fluid, socially constructed and can be changed to please their fancy.
Just because aberrosexualist ideologues use coldly-crafted propaganda terms and expressions to fool the public into falling for their lunacy, doesn't mean honest, responsible people should use them also. Our discourse should be completely free of all aberrosexualist Newspeak. You start winning the Culture War by speaking truthfully and calling things by their correct name. Yes, your choice of words does matter!
WORDS HAVE A GENDER.
HUMAN BEINGS HAVE AN UNCHANGEABLE SEX.
Truth has never stood in the way of ideological fanatics, any more than reality has ever stood in the way of delusional psychotics.
