We Must Never Get Used to the New Cultural Craziness

We Must Never Get Used to the New Cultural Craziness by Michael L. Brown for Ask Dr Brown

In their landmark 1990 book After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s, gay strategists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen laid out a brilliant plan for changing American attitudes towards homosexuality. They stated that “to desensitize straights to gays and gayness, inundate them in a continuous flood of gay-related advertising, presented in the least offensive fashion possible. If straights can’t shut off the shower, they may at least eventually get used to being wet.”

Looking back from the vantage point of 2021, we can now say that this was not a matter of shutting off a shower and thereby getting wet. It was a matter of not shutting off a continual downpour, thereby getting soaked. And the soaking continues by the hour, with transgender taking the place of gay in the bombardment.

That’s why it is imperative that we refuse to get used to this new normal.

It is not normal. It will never be normal. And we must not accept it as normal.

It violates natural law and it violates God’s design for humanity. Surely, He has a better way.

Last week, I was looking at the CDC’s official Coronavirus Self-Checker website seeing what steps they recommended for checking one’s self for Covid (which I did not have, for the record).

After filling out my name and age on the site, I scrolled to the next box, which asked, “What sex were you assigned at birth, on your original birth certificate?”

Yes, this the level of cultural craziness to which we have descended. The radical idea of having your sex assigned at birth is now considered normal (as opposed to the obvious pronouncement of, “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl!”). And, since people can actually change the sex on their birth certificate, you must be asked for the data on your original birth certificate. As I’ve asked countless times before, what kind of madness is this?

The CDC is asking these questions because there are biological differences between men and women. And in many cases, those biological differences are of great medical importance.

Today, however, even to ask the question, “Are you male or female?” is to walk into a cultural minefield.

We must not get used to this or accept it as normal. Ever.

Years ago, when doing research for A Queer Thing Happened to America, I first came across the concept of having your gender “assigned” at birth, as if it was the arbitrary decision of the doctor, as in: “Let’s assign this kid to be male.” (We are not talking here about less than 1 percent of the population that is intersex but about obvious, undeniable males and females.)

As I wrote back in the book, “First, the concept of having multiple ‘gender identities’ is now acceptable (which means that you might consider yourself male and female and even something else, not biologically but psychologically). Second, it is now widely accepted in many GLBT circles that you are not born male or female but you are assigned a gender at birth (by society, through the medium of your parents and the doctors). There is even a regulation concerning this in the San Francisco Unified School Policy: ‘Transgender students shall not be forced to use the locker room corresponding to their gender assigned at birth.’”
