Transfallacies — Common Fallacies Used To Justify Transsexualism

I don’t know why they had a special Day of Visibility for “transgenders”. You can’t miss men in dresses pretending to be women. They are visibility itself.

Nevertheless, the Day was had, affording the elite-Expert-ruler class a prime opportunity to vice signal how supportive they were of the latest madness.

Somebody had Biden say on video that “transgender people” are “made in the image of God”.

Now this is a common idiot fallacy, one of many covered in this better selling book. For if it is so that men who wear dresses are made in the image of God, so are psychopaths, sociopaths, murderers, zoophiles, and NPR listeners.

Biden’s writer didn’t mean “made” in the sense that all men possess the rationality given to us by God, but rather in the manufactured sense. That men wanting to be women were manufactured to want to be women by God. That their natures toward rejecting Reality were God given. That being so, their desires cannot be criticized, for who are we to question God’s plan?

Yet, as said, if “made” works as it works for men in dresses, it works for psychopaths and feminists, too. There isn’t any occupation, avocation or activity it doesn’t work for. So the concept is empty.

Another name for this fallacy is the Born This Way Fallacy. If people are born that way, for whatever proclivity you enjoy, you cannot deny the same logic for people who display proclivities you dislike. They were born that way, too. Everybody was born “that” way, for whatever “that” is.

In none of these cases is there a natural dividing line, or test, which says draw this line here but nowhere else. So the argument, in any form it takes, is always a fallacy.

A variant of the fallacy runs on probabilities. They’ll say, Well, there were always a certain number of men who wore dresses throughout history. At rare times they were indulged in this, but usually these behaviors were proscribed; only now, we recognize that thos behavior has always been with us, so we will celebrate the behavior, and take Pride in it.

This is the Always With Us Fallacy, easily seen to be one by a simple substitution.

There were always a certain number of men who murdered other men throughout history. At rare times they were indulged in this, but usually these behaviors were proscribed; only now, we recognize that this behavior has always been with us, so we will celebrate the behavior, and take Pride in it.

Indeed, there were always more murderers than men in dresses, so if we award morality by proportion, murder is even more moral than crossdressing.

The Always With Us Fallacy is powerful. It caused society to conclude that sodomy was a good, and therefore there should be toleration and Pride in open homosexuality. Now you have to worry about your kids watching a Disney movie.

There’s no getting around it. If we decide any behavior is a good, we have to do so by addressing the behavior itself, in essence. Pointing to its frequency or claiming one has “no choice”, or was “born that way”, fail as arguments.

Biden’s writers had him append this to his made-that-way: “parents should affirm their [children’s] gender identity.”

I won’t spend much time on the Appeal to Pity, an ancient fallacy, one that is well beloved, even cherished by the female of the species, except to note its modern name is the Corrosive Tears Fallacy.

If you cause somebody, usually a woman, to cry, you are wrong. Even if you are right. Here the tears are not so much from the men who want to wear dresses (they are men, after all, and not apt to cry), but from women, including the mom’s of young boys who want to signal their vice, and display their sons as daughters for social points.

What’s missed, though, are the feelings of the normal parents (and others) called out by Biden’s speech writer. Those who do not approve of the madness, but who are asked to endorse and embrace it. They outnumber the men in dresses, and their feelings are said to count for nothing. This is the Cruelty Fallacy. It needs no explanation.

  1. Excellent post.

    Our country has spent 70+ years embracing these fallacies and it has caused a discernible decrease in the quality of life of our citizens. Certainly, there were excesses against blacks, but we misinterpreted the reasoning behind the Civil Rights era and instead of embracing a philosophy of judging (and not pre-judging) one’s *actions*, we instead interpreted the end of Jim Crow with the “born this way” philosophy and down the hill we went.

    Almost as soon as the blacks were liberated, the sodomites and other freaks deduced that they could use the same logic to their own benefit and they were right, mostly because our education system hold up Lincoln and MLK as demigods and teach young children that the worst thing in the world is for one to be bigoted and mean instead of teaching them that the best thing in the world is to be aspirational and discerning.

  2. Get Biden to say that Putin or Russians were made in the image of God. Until then, Biden has no right to even say the word God.

  3. “Transgenderism” also applies the fallacy of the beard:

    “Another way that postmodernists deny objective reality is to attack the idea of ‘essentialism,’ i.e., the idea that anything has a specific nature that makes it what it is.

    The attack on essentialism argues that even if everything is something, it can’t be anything specific because most qualities are a matter of degree.

    If you took Philosophy 101, you might recognize that argument as ‘the fallacy of the beard.’ A clean-shaven man has no (unshaven) whiskers on his face. So how many whiskers does it take to make a beard? One whisker isn’t a beard. If you add one more, that’s not a beard either. Add another, still no beard. At no point can you say that one more whisker makes it a beard. Thus, goes the argument, there’s no such thing as being clean-shaven or having a beard. There’s only a continuum of beardedness. The argument is disproven by the simple fact that there are clean-shaven and bearded people.”

    It follows that the nature of the human collective is made in the image of god per this line of argument. What is the nature of the human collective? Meet “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room” … https://www.rolf-hefti.com/covid-19-coronavirus.html

  5. “Another name for this fallacy is the Born This Way Fallacy. If people are born that way, for whatever proclivity you enjoy, you cannot deny the same logic for people who display proclivities you dislike. They were born that way, too. Everybody was born “that” way, for whatever “that” is.” Quote is from this writing.

    Why does no one, it seems, call out the fallacy of “born this way” …. as to saying this happens at birth to cause such, and how is it known that “it” did not occur at conception, which if this were true which it is not, as God only creates human sexuality as male or female, then could the supporters of this prove it happened at birth and not at conception? Maybe a small point, but valid.

    Praying for the confused, to fully accept God’s creation of them in every way, and to live this in joy with Him the rest of their days in the earth, and for all of eternity.

  6. You’ve gone from attacking gay people in every other post to attacking trans people in every other post. Haven’t you got anything better to do with your life than attack harmless minorities? Incidentally, I would criticise Biden for bringing God into everything.

    Your headline claim that transsexualism requires justification itself requires justification, which you haven’t provided. Identifying some fallacies in a speech by a politician defending something, does not amount to establishing that that the thing being defended is wrong. You still have all your work ahead of you.

    Biden’s writer didn’t mean “made” in the sense that all men possess the rationality given to us by God, but rather in the manufactured sense.

    So are trans people ‘manufactured’ by God or not? And what if we use our God-given rationality to conclude that there’s no moral reason to condemn trans people, just as we used our rationality to conclude there are good moral reasons to condemn slavery, which God allows?

    So the argument, in any form it takes, is always a fallacy.

    It’s not a fallacy if it is used – correctly – to identify that something is innate, rather than aquired. And I only have to read your comments to see that there are people who deny that things like being gay or trans are innate, or even could be innate. See C-Marie. Incidentally, does God have a plan or not? You seem unsure.

    The Always With Us Fallacy is powerful. It caused society to conclude that sodomy was a good, and therefore there should be toleration and Pride in open homosexuality. Now you have to worry about your kids watching a Disney movie.

    Only if you’re a snowflake. Your claim is false. Society did not decide that gay people are okay because there have always been gay people, but because there is no reason outside of religious bigotry to condemn them. They aren’t causing harm to society (unlike religion’s iron-age morality) so they should be left in peace. Which doesn’t seem like much to ask.

  7. All human beings are made in the image and likeness of God. Each person is created by God, either male or female. That some people have same sex attractions and or feel certain that they are actually of the opposite sex from that which they were created, does happen as is easily oberved. That these desires are not of God’s creation is obvious in that God only creates us either male or female, as is stated in the Book of Genesis, and in the Gospel of Matthew where Jesus confirms God’s creation of human sexes.

    The desire to change one’s created sexuality does happen to some people, but it must needs be recognized that such a change is impossible, though appearances may be created so that such a change will appear to have somewhat occured.

    All people are loved by God. We who are in Christ Jesus, are to love all people, even our enemies. God is merciful. We are to be full of mercy.

    The people who have such desires of same sex attraction and or transgenderism, and who act on them, need to know that those desires of theirs, are diametrically opposed to God’s creation of human beings, and that those desires are counterfeits to God’s creation of human beings.

    God created us out of His Love for His purposes. We are to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him all of our days, and then to live with Him forever.

    The Roman Catholic Church in its JPII Catechism, fails miserably in ministering to people who are experiencing the above desires and attractions. People must needs be taught that those desires and attractions are not of God, but are out of self having given in to temptation, and thus knowingly or unknowingly, making themselves their own god, and that they can be freed from those counterfeits of God’s creation.

    We human beings are spirit, soul, and body. We are not just bodies. The devil is real and is always looking to get people to corrupt the Truth of God’s creation of human sexes, for how better to attempt to “show God up” than by stealing His people with lies and desires of condemnation of self and so get them to look to their own self as their own god, making decisions opposite to God’s creation, and marring His creation so very horribly.

    Because we firmly believe something, does not make it a Truth. God’s Holy Spirit witness gives us to know what is Truth. If you want the Truth, receive Jesus Christ.

    Sure keeps you up at night, don’t it Mr. I-support-pedos-covertly Trumbone? Lol, “harmless”. Maybe that’s what they are indoctrinating kids like you in school with lately, so as you can see, it is at least harmful to your brain.

    [blockquote]Your headline claim that transsexualism requires justification itself requires justification, which you haven’t provided.[/blockquote]

    What? What does this sentence even mean?

    [blockquote] So are trans people ‘manufactured’ by God or not?[/blockquote]

    To the same extent as an adulterer, thief, murderer, pedophile or atheist. I.E. God gave you and others free will and an intellect and we personally decided to make something of it for ourselves and to each other.

    [blockquote]And what if we use our God-given rationality to conclude that there’s no moral reason to condemn trans people,[/blockquote]

    And what if we use our God-given rationality to conclude that there’s no moral reason to condemn pedophilia under the guise of lgbt-rights?

    [blockquote] just as we used our rationality to conclude there are good moral reasons to condemn slavery, which God allows?[/blockquote]

    It’s hilarious that you keep repeating this zinger, demonstrating your total intellectual dishonesty, not surprising given you are, after all, a covert pro-pedo atheist. It figures that just like you want to give perversion and mental illness carte blanche, that you’d likewise complain about an ancient and entirely justified system of debt repayment and criminal liability. So it is no surprise that you are trying to expose children to harmful impressionable dangers too. The neux-atheism really is crackers!

    [blockquote]It’s not a fallacy if it is used – correctly – to identify that something is innate, rather than aquired. [/blockquote]

    It is when it is based on scientifically debunked bullshit. The “Muh feelings” argument means absolutely nothing Mr. I-pretend-to-care-about-THE-SCIENCE-(tm) Trumbob.

    [blockquote]Incidentally, does God have a plan or not?[/blockquote]

    He does. Skip to the last book in there. Your moment is now! Enjoy it while it lasts!

    [blockquote]Only if you’re a snowflake.[/blockquote]

    Thank you Snow White! It is goid that you agree with the obvious that we are certainly more pretty to look at than a try-hard drag queen! Follows the science of crystallization too!

    [blockquote]Your claim is false. Society did not decide that gay people are okay because there have always been gay people, but because there is no reason outside of religious bigotry to condemn them.[/blockquote]

    But even atheists condemned them because their perverted behaviour was not conducive to evolutionary progression nor survival and basic human health. This is why so many of themate dying of STDs and other mental issues. But you don’t care. They are a useful demographic for you to grandstand on and use for your personal shameless benefit. Are they even people to you? Or slaves that you own whose lives are expendable for your political religion.

    Also society only “decided” to tolerate more pervision as part of its logical decline from sex outside of marriage, divorce, pornography, adultery, contraception, abortion etc. So faggotry eventually came to lick at the tablescraps, and pedos are coming up too! What after all is standing in their way other than just another pillar of ‘bigotry’? I mean the idea that children can’t ubderstand sexuality is just some ‘religuous iron-age morality’, because we now know that even kindergarteners have an innate ability to know they need a sex change operation and medication to halt their obviously-not-real biology or an experimental mRNA injection, and they absolutely know if they are L or G or B or QWERTY and the State-payroll teachers observe this and need to support them and hide this from their parents… so why stop there cobsidering government lets them consent to everything else? I mean… many in government were friends with Mr. Epstein and also with a certain community in Rotherham who they just wanted to cuddle and protect, so it is only a matter of time.

    [blockquote]They aren’t causing harm to society (unlike religion’s iron-age morality) so they should be left in peace. Which doesn’t seem like much to ask.[/blockquote]

    I’m sure you love leaving them alone to suffer under copious amounts of make-up and rectal cream and if only stopped there, but… it is like their song says, they ate coming for our children. AKA – They won’t leave us in peace even when society largely agreed to leave them alone, which didn’t seem like much to ask… but only dumbfish here hasn’t caught on to the fact that the “leave us alone” fallacy has always been a bullshit ploy by the real species of LGBTPedo peeps – Narcissism – which DEMANDS people’s attention! Look at us! Praise us! Worship us! Cast aside your religion because WE are your GODS now! We will construct morality! We are beyond all Science! SUBMIT! OR ELSE YOU ARE BOGOTS AND RAKISTS!!! AHHHHH!!!! Now hand over your children! We know better what to do with them! And THE STATE, the beloved vessel of Atheists, is on our side! And we will destroy your lives and families for refusing to partake in our global campaign of world domination! Leave each other alone??? HAH!!! Only our useful idiot supporters believe that!

  10. Good article Briggs. Rather pathetic that we even have to deal with this nonsense with transgenderism. Of course, the left always has been full of fallacies having encountered them for years in a town full of leftists.

    With such obvious stupidity being promoted, as well as other lunatic ideas being promoted, I tend to think that this is just some brainwashing, “MK-Ultra” like agenda being implemented onto society by the cultural marxists, the corporations, politicians and deep-staters to see how far they can get people to deny the obvious. Of course, if you can get people to deny the obvious, then you can control people more easily.

  11. Transgenders are the saints of the alt-left. No one dare criticize them, everyone wants their child to become one, no expense must be spared in glorifying them.

  12. History must include countless humans denying abominable tendencies within themselves, not even admitting they have them, and dying without anyone else ever being aware of them. Surely this is part of what it means to be MAN.
    Briggs is quite right that if we elevate some “innate tendencies” then some people are being hard done by still in that THEIR innate tendencies are still proscribed rather than celebrated. How about we stick to the ground that we are ALL born in sin, shapen in iniquity, and have things to overcome with the aid of divine grace?

  13. Yes, and we can each choose to:

    “We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”
    1 John 4: 16.
