No One is Natural

Deep shadow in the snow

The not-natural panic defense is back. You know the one.

“Transsexualism in unnatural!” or “God made two genders only!”

When trans-hating people throw down these phrases, they are toting big guns. Woman as Womb! Gaia as Mother! Woman as Nurture! Science is Bad! God is Great!

Right.

I have a few clarifying questions for the trans-haters.

Do you use a phone? Check.

A toilet piped into a sewer line? Check.

A car? Bike? Public transportation? Check. Check. and Check.

That’s kind of unnatural, don’t you think? If we’re going to go natural, we ought to stand outside, yell really loudly, hoping our Grandma in Poughkeepsie will hear us. Then we should take a dump in the back yard and walk from wherever to Poughkeepsie to visit Grandma.

That’s natural.

Trans-haters are just as unnatural as I am.

Yes, we choose to modify our bodies, our pronouns, our names, our lives.

Trans-haters do, too. All the time. The insulin they take for diabetes, the vitamins and herbal extractions they ingest for health, the performance-enhanced running shoes they wear for weight loss, body modifications.

Antibiotics, tetanus shots, cholesterol-reducing drugs, vicodin, valium, all modifications.

Trans-haters change their names. Trans-haters change their bodies, for what is a nip and tuck or hair color or pierced ears but yet different types of body modification.

Either we’re all unnatural or none of us are. Vomiting out hypocrisy won’t change that fact.
