The trans activists have, she explains, hit the bedroom too. A trans woman with an unchanged male body may now “self-identify” as a lesbian. She (to use her preferred pronoun, which Stock politely does throughout) may want to have sex with lesbians. But lesbians, Stock tells us, are sexually attracted to adults with a female body. Campaigners call this the “cotton ceiling” and run workshops on how to overcome it.
That some in the society go mad is of course entirely normal. That some corner believes entire oddities – Jebus is back Tues afternoon, I’m Napoleon, MOAR TAX – is just how it goes.
That the delusions become commonplace, even enforced, is much odder. Clearly it happens though.
Leave the lesbian part aside for a moment and examine the assertion again.
Gender is in the head not the biology – that second we might call sex. Sexual attraction is to the gender and not the sex. We might think that fails as we do call it sexual, not gender, attraction. But follow the logic of this. It therefore means that Eddie Izzard is a person of at least potential lust for heterosexual males.
Is this true? Therefore there’s something wrong with the chain of logic that leads to the insistence, isn’t there? It could even be true that Eddie ought to be, should be, lusted after by blokes who do so over Melinda Messenger. That they don’t shows that the should doesn’t always lead to the do – the usual problem with those progressive phantasms built upon wishes about human nature.
