Transgender Women Are Not Women

We need to face reality, instead of diving deeper into an abyss of unscientific thinking.

Jess Hilarious, a well-known comedian and personality, has recently created quite a stir in the world of social media. She dared to voice her opinion on a trending video where a transgender woman claimed that “womanhood” and menstruation were not exclusive to biological women. Jess responded with the simple truth that only biological women can menstruate and bear children, and quite rightly so!

Let’s not tiptoe around the facts. Biological men, or in layman’s terms, individuals born with male genitalia, can never and will never have the capacity to give birth to children or menstruate. It’s not an opinion or a debate but a cold, hard fact of biology. We need to face reality, instead of diving deeper into an abyss of unscientific thinking.

What is truly confounding is the muddled state of the discourse surrounding women’s identity. Women, throughout history, have fought countless battles for recognition and rights. And now, we’re embroiled in a debate questioning the very definition of what constitutes a woman. Have we suddenly discarded centuries of biological understanding and scientific knowledge in favor of a more subjective, individualistic interpretation?

What’s the future holding for us, then? Should we expect more such redefinitions? If an individual identifies as another race, alters their skin color and claims they’re “transracial,” will we accept it without question? Suppose someone identifies as wealthy without having a single dime in their bank account — are we to consider them “transwealthy”? And where does this end? If a person starts identifying as a dog, a cat or any other creature, will we be required to play along and call them “transanimal”? The fundamental issue is this: The intensity of your feelings, however genuine they may be, cannot change reality.

Consider this hypothetical scenario: A century from now, an archeologist excavates the skeletal remains of a transgender woman. Scientific analysis, independent of any subjective biases, would incontrovertibly reveal the skeleton to belong to a biological man. Yet, in our current culture, we’re asked to suspend our disbelief and affirm that a person who identifies as a woman is, indeed, a woman. Are we not treading on treacherous ground?

The situation is undoubtedly confusing, even frustrating. However, it’s vital to maintain perspective and not let absurdity take root. A biological man, regardless of the quantities of estrogen he consumes, regardless of the breast or buttock implants he acquires, regardless of wigs, fake eyelashes, name changes or women’s clothes, will never be a biological woman.

Is that too difficult to grasp? Or has society become so immersed in this collective delusion that we’ve forgotten the simplest of truths? We need to pause, step back and scrutinize the path we’re treading. Do we want a world governed by feelings over facts, where reality can be reshaped according to individual whims and wishes?

It’s time to return to sanity. It’s time to reaffirm our commitment to biological realities and reject the sociocultural illusions that threaten to subvert them. Let us not blur those lines for the sake of momentary societal trends. Being a woman is not merely a matter of identification but a concrete, biological reality that we need to acknowledge and uphold.

The idea that our biological identities can be overwritten by personal feelings sets a dangerous precedent. It undermines the empirical facts of our existence, breeding confusion and potentially harming societal progress in the long run.

It’s imperative that we maintain balance in our approach to this discussion. We should stand firm and remain grounded in biological realities. It’s about recognizing while everyone has the right to identify as they wish, there are some truths that simply cannot be altered. We need to draw the line between affirming one’s identity and denying biological facts, lest we risk veering into a realm where anything and everything is subject to personal interpretation and feelings. We must face the challenge head-on, with a robust commitment to truth and reason.
