The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.
— Deut 22:5, KJV
Yesterday Drudge linked to an article in the Sun about Britain’s first woman to fight on the front line.
GUARDSMAN Chloe Allen has become the British Army’s first female frontline soldier — after being born a boy called Ben.
The 24-year-old joined up four years ago as a man, but changed her name officially last month.
I tried to describe the full absurdity of the story to my wife and daughter last night, with a tattooed man speaking in a deep voice about how honored he is to be the first woman to break through this barrier.
Sporting long polished nails and with silver studs in her ears, she said: “It’s a great honour to make history.
“I’m just looked at as a normal person.”
I finally decided to show them the video embedded in the article, since I really can’t do it justice. After watching the video my wife was sure it had to be satire, and that I was pulling her leg.
But this is the age we live in, the age of cross-dressing. It is entirely fitting that the “first woman” to fill this role is a man in the earliest stages of disguising himself as a woman, because putting women in combat has always been about cross-dressing. When feminists first pitched the idea in earnest, surely nearly everyone had cross dressing in mind, albeit from the other direction. Who among them would have realized that the culmination of their work would be a man pretending to be a woman pretending to be a man? The desire was for women to pretend to be men, to wear the garb of men and take on the role of men. This kind of cross dressing is now entirely normal in our society, just as Ben hopes his apparent change into Chloe will also be accepted as normal.
This morning my wife showed me the cover of the Fall 2016 USAA Magazine. It features a closeup of a butch woman (Star Cazador) in a Sheriff Department uniform with the caption:
PROTECT AND SERVE
Marine training helped define this law enforcement officer’s mission.
I can’t find the cover image on the web to link to, but it is the top photo here cropped to only show Cazador. If your browser permits you to blow it up until she takes up the entire frame, you will get a pretty good idea of the cover of the magazine.
Most who see the photo will see nothing wrong with Cazador donning the dress and posture of a man, because this is perfectly normal in our society; it is seen as a virtue for a woman to do this in our age. This is even true for most of the people who can still spot the absurdity in Britain’s first female front line soldier.
But now that we have as a society come to not just accept but celebrate Cazador’s cross-dressing, we are also being taught to both accept and celebrate Ben Allen’s cross-dressing. Just as it was crucial for feminists to teach adults to encourage girls to want to grow up to be men at a young age, Social Justice Warriors are now busy teaching us that boys should be taught to want to grow up to be women at a young age. This is all around us, but for just one example see the NY Times article Drudge linked to on Friday: From He to She in First Grade
When our son turned 6, my husband and I bought him a puppet theater and a chest of dress-up clothes because he liked to put on plays. We filled the chest with 20 items from Goodwill, mostly grown-man attire: ties, button-down shirts, a gray pageboy cap and a suit vest.
But we didn’t want his or his castmates’ creative output to be curtailed by a lack of costume choices, so we also included high heels, a pink straw hat, a dazzling fairy skirt and a sparkly green halter dress.
With this as only the beginning of her and her husband’s passive aggressive prodding, they are proud to announce that their son now considers himself a girl. This life altering change of identity was pushed on him at such a young age he could not have hoped to understand what his parents were softly coaxing him towards. After his first three days in first grade his parents had worked their magic, as his mother proudly explains:
“I already decided about that,” he said. “I never think about that anymore.”
It had been three days.
But it was also true. He had already decided. He didn’t think about that anymore. And he — she — never looked back. She grew out her hair. She stopped telling people she was a boy in a skirt and started being a girl in a skirt instead.
We are much farther down this path than nearly everyone is aware. Even those who are fighting against this latest SJW crusade are almost entirely unequipped to perceive the true insanity of it. As Cane Caldo brilliantly observes:
The tailspin of America has only accelerated, and it is accelerating at a quadratic rate. Whatever our ethnicities or religions, we now have two groups of people in America: Those who think men who dress as women should disrobe with little girls, and those who think they should disrobe with little boys. (There is no debate about the wrongness of trans-sexualism. There is no concern for the boys.) How did we come to this?
Crossdressing is the spirit of our age, with even modern (conservative) Christians fully caught in its thrall. The instructions to husbands and wives in the Bible make modern Christians deeply uncomfortable, but all of this is solved by the simple act of embracing cross dressing. Switch the roles of husband and wife, and modern Christians absolutely adore headship and submission.
