Kansas Republicans Pass Anti-Transgender Resolution “Motivated By Love”

Mar 5, 2018

By Sarahbeth Caplin

Kansas politicians should probably be focusing on their state’s economic woes… or maybe gun safety. Instead, the state’s Republicans made it a priority to condemn any and all efforts to validate transgender identities.

At the state party’s annual meeting in Wichita on February 17, the Kansas Republican Party approved a resolution entitled “Regarding Human Sexual Identity” and its stance against medical treatments.

The resolution stated that the party “recognizes the dignity of every human being, including those who identify as LGBT,” but affirmed “God’s design for gender as determined by biological sex and not by self-perception” and opposed “all efforts to validate transgender identity.”

If God loves you, stand up! Not so fast, trans people…

The party also prioritized the “rights” of ignorant, bigoted parents who don’t want their kids sharing bathrooms with their trans classmates despite the fact that those those classmates are at far greater risk of harm than their cisgendered peers.

  • @OP – The resolution stated that the party “recognizes the dignity of every human being, including those who identify as LGBT,”

    Which typical double-talk from the bigoted know-it-all-god-deluded-ignorant!

    but affirmed “God’s design for gender as determined by biological sex and not by self-perception”

    Ah! That’s the “faith” of the science illiterate! “Gender is determined by faith in bronze age rantings – and not by objective scientific observations”!

    and opposed “all efforts to validate transgender identity.”

    Fancy medics and biologists using biological observations and genetics, to establish gender identity – next those scientists of little faith, will be debunking the flat-Earth hypothesis by using space probes and telescopes! 🙂

    So why the bleep did he set the initiation of genital formation and the (often) associate neurological wiring for gender to happen at different times during gestation when the hormonal triggers could manage to be different?

    In the image of God? My arse. Much better. Diverse, rich, oozing with potential. Society progresses from its periphery and I don’t mean the suburbs.

  • From the article above:

    Republicans made it a priority to condemn any and all efforts to validate transgender identities.

    In the field of psychology, fixations can reveal oh so much about a person!

    Ah! That’s the “faith” of the science illiterate!
    “Gender is determined by faith in bronze age rantings – and not by objective scientific observations”!

    and opposed “all efforts to validate transgender identity.”

    They are setting themselves an impossible task, so while laughably pontificating on “biology”, the most they can achieve is DENIAL OF SCIENCE, and illustrating their personal bigoted ignorance, failure to properly investigate the subject, polarised black and white thinking, and their consensus of collective deluded stupidity!

    Intersex is a group of conditions where there is a discrepancy between the external genitals and the internal genitals (the testes and ovaries).

    https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/003269.htm

    Ambiguous genitalia is a birth defect where the outer genitals do not have the typical appearance of either a boy or a girl.

    https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/001169.htm

    Partial androgen insensitivity syndrome (PAIS) is a disease that occurs in children when their body can’t respond the right way to the male sex hormones (androgens). Testosterone is a male sex hormone.

    In the first 2 to 3 months of pregnancy, all babies have the same genitals. As a baby grows inside the womb, male or female genitals develop depending on the pair of sex chromosomes from the parents. It also depends on the levels of androgens. In a baby with XY chromosomes, high levels of androgens are made in the testes. This baby will develop male genitals. In a baby with XX chromosomes, there are no testes and the levels of androgens are very low. This baby will develop female genitals. In PAIS, there is a change in the gene that helps the body recognize and use male hormones properly.
    This leads to problems with the development of the male sex organs.
    At birth, the baby may have ambiguous genitals, which leads to confusion over the baby’s sex.

    Developmental disorders of the female reproductive tract include intersex and ambiguous genitalia.

    Problems with outer (external) genitals: Developmental problems may lead to a swollen clitoris or fused labia (when the folds of tissue around the opening of the vagina are joined together). Most other problems of the outer genitals are related to intersex and ambiguous genitalia.

  • It is concern for the well-being of others that drives us to seek out what is true and not just for society, but for them personally

    Tough love eh? Don’t recall that being in the words of JC. All his ire was reserved for hypocrites.

    Not quite! – “*It is concern for forcing our damaging god-delusions on others.”

    that drives us to seek out what is true

    That would be asserted dogmatic “Biblical Trrrooof”, NOT factual evidenced truth!

    They do know that The “bible” is true!… These repeatedly translated, mistranslated and contradictory works, are all pronounced to be THE UNERRING TROOOFF! – Usually by people who have never heard of them and never read them!

    and not just for society, but for them personally

    According to the dogma=morality notion, in the deluded minds of the uneducated uncaring faith-fools!
