The fundamental structure of LGBT ideology and the community itself are cracking up right before our eyes. This is happening right now in dramatic fashion.
No attentive citizen should miss this fact.
The most dramatic episode of this crack-up is taking place between the two most famous so-called “trans” people in the world: Bruce Jenner (who now goes by Caitlyn) and Dylan Mulvaney. These two gentlemen are having a very public spat over what a woman should do with “her” p*nis. Yes, you read that correctly.
Apologies for the frankness, but that is exactly what is happening. Confused? You should be. Just keep reading though.
Jenner simply took Mulvaney to task for becoming a spectacle, which is true. This is evidenced here, here, here, and here, for starters. But Mulvaney is the new face of what it means to be transgender, even so much so that President Biden granted him a sit down interview in the White House.
And even though Mulvaney famously calls himself a girl, he proudly highlights the most male parts of his man body. This display riled Jenner, who tweeted,
. @MarshaBlackburn thank you for speaking out and having a backbone – one of the best senators we have. Let’s not ‘normalize’ any of what this person is doing. This is absurdity! https://t.co/YmQcuwWKhj

Yes, the so-called LGBT community is turning on itself in a very public way over the question of what women should do with their p*nises. Yes, it is as crazy as it sounds.
But make no mistake. This is precisely where the gender and feminist movement have led us in the name of progress and women’s empowerment.
And the LGBT ideology just proved itself, to use Jenner’s word, the “absurdity” that it is. And this is simply because when you can redefine male and female, man and woman, boy and girl, to be anything anyone wants it to mean, you end up with seemingly serious arguments about something reasonable people have no reason to question.
And that is precisely what this very public spat between two of the biggest names in trans politics is demonstrating, that when you start making up new realities out of anyone’s imagination, common sense becomes the victim.
And we all lose then.
What is Trans Anyway?
The Daily Citizen refers to “trans” in quotes and adds the “so-called” because trans is not something that people actually are. This is essential to understand in today’s culture.
Trans is not a medical term. It does not refer to an actual scientific, diagnosable condition, as the American Psychiatric Association (APA) makes clear: “Transgender is a non-medical term that has been used increasingly since the 1990s as an umbrella term” to describe any subjectively perceived incongruity between one’s sense of self and their biological reality. It exists in the mind. As such, it means very different things to different people – evidenced by the current Jenner/Mulvaney squabble – and the imprecision of its meaning is intentional.
Similarly, “gender identity” is not an actual medical or clinical reality either. The APA defines it simply as “one’s psychological sense of their gender” whatever that might be. Only the person making the claim can define what it is. Science has no way of detecting it. Evolutionary biologist Colin Wright gives succinct clarity to this fact.
What people are calling "gender identity" basically just boils down to a person's innate sense of how their own preferences and behavior maps on to stereotypes of masculinity and femininity.
It is NOT an innate sense of being male, female, a bit of both, or neither.

Liberal, feminist author Kara Dansky says flatly in her important book The Abolition of Sex, “Here is the truth we cannot speak: ‘gender ideology’ does not exist in any real, material sense, and ‘transgender’ is simply a made-up concept that is used to justify all kinds of atrocities.” She is absolutely correct.
So when Jenner and Mulvaney refer to themselves as “trans,” they are not speaking of something that is objectively real or even similar to both of them. That is an undeniable fact. Therefore, no one else should use the term as if it has an objective, descriptive meaning. It does not.
All that we know with certainty is that they are men who are presenting as women in very different ways, doing so very publicly to boost their profiles. And this clear and contradictory difference in how they see the same word is what led us to their very public spat.
Therefore, no one should feel compelled to play along with this very deceptive and intentionally confusing game. Reason requires that we become passionate conscientious objectors.
