The child of two lesbians, one inseminated by an unknown sperm seller, the partner used as an incubator. The child of a living woman and a dead man, she fertilized with semen taken from him, already a corpse. Medically secured children to supply sick siblings with authorized parts. And chimeric human-animal hybrids to fuel the transplantation industry.
Back in the days when France debated the world’s most monstrous bioethics law I wrote thus, even mentioning the devilish temptation to manufacture man in test tubes in the image and likeness of one’s own desires, one’s own follies and especially one’s own Promethean revolutions against the order of what exists and its Creator: the temptation to alter what cannot be altered, which alchemy and magical thinking have always pursued.
Time has passed and France perseveres. There are those today who strive to use the extraordinary human capacity of imagination to create perverse utopias in which disorder triumphs, empires overturn, destruction reigns.
France now says that men can also be pregnant and therefore men can also have abortions. French radicals think they hold the power to make of reality what they prefer. Obviously, because reality can never be defeated, the man who gives birth and has an abortion is a hoax: it is just a slight of hand, as it is a transgender woman who claims to be a man. And yet it is a hoax that can be seen for what it is by those who still believe that there is a reality, the reality of things, with its truth, the truth of things, and its nature, the normative nature of what exists. Only in this way is man giving birth and abortion an obvious subterfuge.
But those who give reality no credit, those who think that the real does not exist and is eternally manipulable by desire, fantasy, and cravings, believe that they have really begotten the man who gives birth and aborts. To radicals, thinking that a woman who says she is a man and then gives birth to a child or aborts makes the “reality” of a man giving birth and aborting. Nothing will hold.
A trendy periodical such as Teen Vogue can therefore speak, normalizing the aberrant, of a video entitled My abortion saved my life , where Cazembe Murphy Jackson, an activist woman who believes she is a man, explains how having an abortion prevented “him” from committing suicide. Obviously, the lack of apostrophe before the word “activist” and all masculine in the proposition are from Teen Vogue and farcical, because the subject in question, being able to give birth and have an abortion, is a woman, only a woman, exclusively a woman, but precisely this is the central point.
This is the horizon of the revolution today, this is trans thinking. Trans thinking is not what transgenders and transsexuals think, it is not even the idea of making everyone fluid. It is the idea that reality does not exist for what it is but everything is just a representation of what the individual will imagines. Donkeys fly, and men give birth and abort.
Frankenstein’s monster is not an imaginary fbeing forged magically from the cauldron of a sorcerer. It is already here, roaming among us, it has taken over. It lodges in trans thinking and feeds on reality, breaking it up, shredding it and consuming it under the teeth as Polyphemus did with Odysseus’ companions. Man is his own idea of himself and no fact can disprove it. Radicals will continue to argue that women who think they are men are in fact men who can have abortions by falsifying reality without listening to reason or facts.
