Mutilated men are NOT women!
|by Anne Morse|
On a subject related to Chuck's recent BreakPoint commentary--the one with the gross title: I've never understood why feminists would stand still for the idea that a sexually mutilated man--that is, one who underwent "sex-change" surgery--was the equivelent of a woman. Shouldn't feminists be the first to remind us that woman are far more than--well, men with missing parts? In what sense are men women simply because they've 1) had outward signs of masculinity surgically removed and 2) put on a dress? Genetically, they are still 100 percent male.
There is no such thing as "sex-change surgery" (another instance of language being deliberately misused to deceive). Surgically mutilated men are not women: they're just mutilated men. Similarly, mutilated women are not men. They are, and will always remain, tragically mutilated women.
In a "The emperor has no clothes" kind of way, children recognize this. They know perfectly well that the 6 ft. 3 "woman" clomping around in size-13 high heels is really a man--no matter what his teachers tell him during "teaching moments."
