If you ask a group of ten-year-olds if thirty is old they would all say yes. If you ask teenagers whether they think their parents are cool they would all say no. The reason kids and teenagers answer these questions the way they do is because they lack perspective which comes only through maturity.
If you ask every woman in the world if a man should be allowed to dress and act like a woman, the majority would say yes. However, if you ask every woman who has gone through menopause or a menstrual cycle or given birth if any man knows what it is like to be a woman, you would be hard pressed to find anyone in good conscience to say yes.
No one can claim to be me but me. To be me you would have had to have been born me, then go through every trial and forge every relationship which contributed to who I am. You can say you are me. You can wear my clothes and change your appearance to look like me. You can even sing my songs, but the best you will ever be is a good counterfeit.
Some people might feel honored to have someone imitate them in such a way, but I’m sure that feeling would change when the counterfeit starts to spend the original’s money. What liberals call gender identity I call identity theft.
A true woman earns the right to be praised and honored by men and women alike for their strength and spirit which they purchased on the maturity road to womanhood. Someone attempting to spend what someone else has earned is thievery. Consequently, someone attempting to claim the rights, privileges and honor of women who has not entered the race from the starting point, but rather has paved a short cut for the sake of attention and praise is an affront to womanhood and an embarrassment to mankind.
Immaturity says, “But look at what he gave up.” The perspective of maturity says, “Look what he dishonors.”
