Sometimes I just don’t understand how immigrants from third world countries like me can look at this social media/media hype around Non-Binary identifying people and not visibly cringe.
These people insist on a theory that people can identify outside of male or female or something in between or they float from one island or whatever. There’s so many rules and conditions, it’s just confusing. I don’t even want to get into the pronouns.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, however remember the simpler days when you were man or woman, gay or straight? You like the opposite or same sex (or both). You had female body parts or male body parts. The reason why the church had problems with it was because it went against doctrine, though when you think about it, the concept was quite easy to understand. This or that.
Now you have all this blah and hoo-hah about not being entirely male or female or being semi (or Demi, ugh) man or woman.
You know what I think?
This is stuff that people think about when they have so much comfort in the time of their lives and no dire worries like whether they would have food on their table the next day or a roof over their head and watching out for hold-uppers in the street. They don’t have to worry about any of those basic human needs for survival so they have all this mind space to think about themselves and their ego.
All this space to wonder about themselves and come up with all this non-binary garbage. Which, must I add, still has no specific scientific backing or evidence in studies, merely a bunch of social science (which is of course, not a real science) surveys and the opinions of psychologists. Not actual biological evidence at all. There is scientific evidence for trans people, I’ll get into that later and there’s history behind gay people, however there is no non-binary theory proven as fact.
What I do know is, there are some serious weirdos in history, hand-picked individuals here and there that acted out of society’s norm- people who dressed and acted both female and male, though that does not prove anything about whether they were truly binary or non-binary. Some individuals are just peculiar and it happens. Like I always said, there’s exceptions to everything.
It’s just hard to believe that this whole non-binary lunacy is actually real since there is nothing backing it. It’s as if they just want to make things up to have something to fuss about, declare it the world and whine and complain and start campaigns so that they have something to do. So that they feel they have a voice because they are whining. Then when their campaigns come through, there is the fame, the sympathy and the press. On top of that, virtue signalling- they’re fighting for something and it feels good. They matter in the big, wide world, they get emotional sympathy and they feel good. All of these ingredients combine to make the ultimate dish called Supreme Egotism.
It’s also usually a bunch of first-world people who talk about this. Mostly white folks and some coloured folks who live in first world countries. You don’t see street beggars in third world countries worrying about what pronouns people use to refer to them or feel ‘violently assaulted’ when they are referred to as a girl when today they felt more like a boy.
As my father so brilliantly put it:
In the absence of bigger problems, small ones seem so monumental.
Seriously people, get a grip on life, appreciate what you have and stop making up things to get attention and amuse yourselves in your mind-space.
