Recently the world has emerged in what I call the madness era of pronouns, the nightmare of well-perceived narcissistic tendencies of people from both barricades emerging from the darkness.
Never in our history have we seen so many entities talking about genes, human biology, hormones, and other stuff to justify their positions.
Some of these “experts” with dead careers have found a way to emerge and perhaps get sympathy from ignorant portions of society, feeding the political and dreadful environments where LGBTQI+ organizations and conservatism coexist.
This ‘conversation’ about what a woman is is insignificant and ridiculous, revealing a profound lack of respect for decades of research. But also a profound disrespect for our species. A social wave based on flattering individuals like Matt Walsh and many others who pretend to be the gods and goddesses of truth. A social wave where clinical/private aspects of human lives are being scrutinized.
A woman or a man isn’t defined only by their genes or chromosomes. Many females are born every day with XY chromosomes but are still females. The Polish former sprinter Ewa Klobukowska is one of those examples, seeing a promising career ending abruptly in 1967 because of her intersex condition. So what is a woman then? Don’t fall into narcissistic tendencies. Instead educate yourself with genuine knowledge not ideologies.
The same rule applies to gender dysphoria, which is not a fashion trend, but a condition that implies real suffering and social isolation from a young age. In Portugal, no children can access reassignment surgeries before eighteen years old. Also, psychological monitoring and two clinical evaluations are mandatory, as well the authorization from the Portuguese Medical Chamber.
We need, at least, equilibrium!
