Extending Trans Logic

and the backlash against attempts to do so.   Notice how all of the trans-everything proponents invoke transgender logic in support of their positions (emphasis added):

Re Race:

Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader who was unmasked as a white woman in 2015, has been attacked on Twitter after claiming that the ‘idea of race is a lie’.

Dolezal, 39, claimed that ethnicity is not biological and compared being ‘transracial’ to being transgender in an interview with BBC‘s Newsnight on Monday.

Here’s her argument:

If gender is socially constructed, then so is race.
Gender is socially constructed.
Therefore, so is race...

Dolezal is taking the assumptions of gender ideology to their logical conclusion and unwittingly showing that, if her position is absurd, then the position of the gender deniers is even more so.

As an aside, while there is outrage against Dolezal’s views, some universities are teaching her concept of race as fact:

When Kennesaw State University held an event last week on privilege and interracial relations, it asked “those who identify as white” to go to one room and “those who identify as people of color” to go to another.

Re Disabilities:

Chloe Jennings-White is very capable and well-accomplished, a research scientist with degrees from Cambridge and Stanford. However, she “knows” she is also a paraplegic, even though fate has dealt her fully functioning legs. She lives in a wheelchair with heavy-duty leg braces and has always felt this way from earliest memories. She has asked doctors to sever her spinal cord so that her body will finally align with her own understanding of herself.

Jennings-White confesses she doesn’t know why her desire to have her body align with her true essence upsets people so much. It is her body, after all. She says it’s not that strange, but “the same as a transsexual man having his penis cut off. It’s never coming back, but they know it’s what they want.” Why him and not her?

Re Species:

A fantasy fanatic has spent more than £25,000 on plastic surgery as he wants to become a real-life elf.

I consider myself trans-species, in the same way transgender people feel, I need to become how I feel inside, I don’t expect people to understand but I ask they respect it.
