‘Trans Day of Vengeance’ Canceled

A textbook example of how to make yourself a victim.

Saturday, April 1, was intended to be April Fools’ Day the “Trans Day of Vengeance,” but the “it’ll be peaceful we swear” protests in DC were called off by the organizers due to what they claim were “credible threats” against the community.

The whole rally was intended to be a protest against their supposed “genocide.” The cancellation, therefore, makes them a double victim — or so they claim. Is this really the case? Let’s unpack “trans rights” and all that the activists stand for, the ideology they defend, and the name of the march in light of the Nashville hate crime perpetrated by a woman claiming to be a man.

The trans community claims to be marginalized, bullied by conservative politicians and the religious, and threatened out of their very existence. They said they just wanted tolerance and acceptance by society, but we all knew it would never stop there. They want to use the bathroom and locker rooms of their choice. Wi Spa and Lia Thomas weren’t enough. They want people to use their chosen pronouns. They have even convinced some school districts to severely punish kids who “misgender” a classmate or teacher. They want to be more than affirmed. They want everyone to celebrate and cheer them on even as they dress in drag and dance provocatively in front of small children at “family friendly” drag shows. They want children to have access to “gender-affirming” care, which entails puberty blockers, hormone therapies, and cosmetic and gender mutilation surgeries.

Many have gone along with the trans agenda to keep the peace. It seemed that more “trans women” (men) won accolades and recognition during Women’s History Month than women. President Joe Biden has invited activist and transgender TikTok personality Dylan Mulvaney to speak at the White House. Biden, in fact, declared this week “Trans Week of Visibility” (or, as it should be called, “Women’s Week of Invisibility”). Sadly for the whole country, the trans community has been incredibly visible. They are hardly being marginalized by those in power. They have all the power in all the biggest institutions.

While plenty of people are not willing to go along with their insanity, the trans activists want any dissenting voices silenced.

States all across the country are using their federalist rights and taking steps to block the goals of the transgender activists. Tennessee in particular has passed legislation that prohibits sexualized shows of any sort from being presented to children and a bill that protects minors from gender mutilation surgery. Other states have ensured that women’s sports remain biological women’s sports.

These states’ resistance is a threat to transgender activists and other people who believe that any disagreement with them and their ideology is literal genocide. Words are violence.

This week, trans activists proactively started protests. Part of this was a necessity due to the horrible tragedy perpetrated by a gender dysphoric woman in Nashville on Monday. She killed six people, including three young children. But instead of allowing the country to mourn and conceding that perhaps people were rightly focusing on the murdered children and adults, in Tennessee and Kentucky, they stormed the state legislatures and attacked the police. The activists demanded no laws against the sexual mutilation of children and gun confiscation to deflect from the fact that the Nashville school attack was committed by a trans activist.

What is this ideological worldview that is so authoritarian in nature that they believe they have the right to “break the binary,” “convert the children,” and actively persecute anyone who publicly disagrees with them?

It is a cult. One that has massive social capital and resources. It is a cult based on a social contagion targeting the emotionally vulnerable with techniques and psychological tools that actively foster depressive mental patterns. It is a cult that makes a public suicide pact. They destroy their bodies in the pursuit of becoming the opposite gender. They change their names and pronouns and claim that if you use their given name — the one their parents gave them at birth — you are “deadnaming” them. These are all people who are mentally ill and have found affirmation with one another in their misery. They believe that if all their demands on society are met, they will finally be happy and free.

This is not the case because what gender dysphoric people believe is a lie that is so patently fragile, it can be brought down by the simplest of questions. For example, “What is a woman?” It is no coincidence that according to the NIH National Library of Medicine, “Data indicate that 82% of transgender individuals have considered killing themselves and 40% have attempted suicide, with suicidality highest among transgender youth.”

It is not an accident that trans activists were calling their protests the “Day of Vengeance.” They want revenge, vindication, and “freedom.” The public statement about the event put about by the Trans Radical Activist Network (TRAN) claimed: “This protest is about unity, not inciting violence. TRAN does not encourage violence and it is not welcome at this event. … Vengeance means fighting back with vehemence. We are fighting against false narratives, criminalization, and eradication of our existence.”

This is the same group that days earlier excused the actions of the trans activist who murdered Christian school children. TRAN wrote that the shooting was “not one tragedy but two.” Why? “All these factors contribute to a population that is under-served and who often face anti-trans bias. … Hate has consequences.” This group has also posted statements like “do literally anything to oppose trans genocide.” Is it any wonder that some very unstable people in this community have taken them up on this call to arms?

Then there is the inevitable censorship when conservatives put up any opposition to the narratives these trans activists are promoting. Conservative political pundit Michael Knowles was suspended from Twitter when he posted a Daily Wire article and quoted Romans 12:19, which says, “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.’” Other conservatives likewise have been suspended from Twitter for posts referring to the “Day of Vengeance.”

The transgender movement and ideology is destructive and violent to everyone in society. Their acolytes are spoiling for a fight. Because even the murder of children is apparently all about them.
