Society & Reality: A look at Transgender History, 3rd Genders and more.
Updated: Jan 25
Regardless of whether or not we agree with Transgenders, 3rd Genders, Bisexual...we must Treat them and Love them. Trying to Understand what is occurring is key for there are Many Layers to this movement.
What is Marxism?
Marxism is a social, political, and economic philosophy named after Karl Marx. It examines the effect of capitalism on labor, productivity, and economic development and argues for a worker revolution to overturn capitalism in favor of communism.
What is the Difference between Communism and Socialism?
The main difference is that socialism is compatible with democracy and liberty, whereas Communism involves creating an 'equal society' through an authoritarian state, which denies basic liberties. ... Communism is a political and economic ideology – closely associated with the state Communism of the Soviet Union and China.
I come from a background in psychology. I took a course on Gender and Sexuality. The Social Construct of Sexuality written by Steven Seidman states the following
Transgender Brain Scans -clevelandclinic.org
“When we look at the transgender brain, we see that the brain resembles the gender that the person identifies as,” Dr. Altinay says. For example, a person who is born with a penis but ends up identifying as a female often actually has some of the structural characteristics of a “female” brain.
And the brain similarities aren’t only structural.
“We’re also finding some functional similarities between the transgender brain and its identified gender,” Dr. Altinay says.
In studies that use MRIs to take images of the brain as people perform tasks, the brain activity of transgender people tends to look like that of the gender they identify with.
Some research shows the brains of transgender people are somewhere in between, sharing characteristics of both male and female brains, Dr. Altinay says.
This is consistent with the growing understanding that gender exists on a spectrum, with people identifying not only as male or female but also as genderqueer, genderfluid or nonbinary. These terms refer to gender identities that incorporate a variety of gender characteristics.
What is Gender Dysphoria?-Clevelandclinic.org
Gender dysphoria has a neurobiological basis but is closely associated with an individual’s interaction with the external world, according to a poster presented by Cleveland Clinic psychiatrist Murat Altinay, MD, at the 2018 annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association (APA).
These findings have the potential to change societal perceptions of what gender is and where it resides, according to Dr. Altinay. “Current belief has been that gender is what your genital organs are,” he explains. “But as shown in the literature, gender is a far more complex concept and the brain seems to play the main role in determining gender identity.”
He and colleagues performed a PubMed search looking for neuroimaging studies of people with gender dysphoria, including cross-sectional, prospective, retrospective, case-control and randomized controlled studies as well as meta-analyses. They found that previous research shows there is a functional representation of the body in the brain. “There are structural and functional similarities between the transgender brain and its identified gender,” says Dr. Altinay.
These similarities are present prior to initiation of hormone therapies, but such therapies produce further changes. For instance, the hypothalamus, thalamus, orbitofrontal cortex and insula are more active in transgender females (individuals with male genitalia who identify as female) than in cisgender males (individuals with male genitalia who identify as male). In addition, transgender females have greater cortical thickness in the brain’s right and left hemispheres, parietotemporal complex, insula and medial occipital cortices relative to the brains of cisgender individuals.
The literature review also revealed that functional neuroimaging studies show changed resting-state functional connectivity in two notable contexts:
Hormonally untreated transgender females showed decreased functional connectivity between the auditory network and the right inferior temporal gyrus and right calcarine gyrus compared with cisgender males. Hormonally treated transgender females showed decreased connectivity between the left frontoparietal cortex and the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex compared with cisgender males.1
Both transgender males and females had less-pronounced functional connectivity within the pregenual anterior cingulate cortex and precuneus compared with cisgender controls, regardless of the subjects’ sexual orientation.2
Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid! What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
The trans movement is not only in the USA but all over the world. We will take a look at the history of 3rd genders, transgender history, and policies of countries as well as the Real reason this is being accepted.
History of 3rd Genders/ Transgender:
Inscribed pottery shards discovered near ancient Thebes (now Luxor, Egypt), and dating from the Middle Kingdom (2000-1800 BCE), contain a listing of three genders of humanity: males, eunuchs, and females, in that order. (See Sethe, Kurt, "Die Aechtung feindlicher Fürsten, Völker und Dinge auf altägyptischen Tongefäßscherben des mittleren Reiches," in: Abhandlungen der Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, Philosophisch-Historische Klasse, 1926, p. 61.) The word for male includes a picture of a penis and a picture of a man kneeling. The word for eunuch includes a picture of a man kneeling, but not a picture of a penis. The word for female includes a picture of a woman kneeling, but no picture of body parts (unless the shield-like shape which designates "woman" is a picture of the female pubic region). https://people.well.com/user/aquarius/egypt.htm
2. 1400s Albania
It began hundreds of years ago, deep in the Albanian Alps—an unusual tradition where women, with limited options in life, took the oath of the burrnesha. A pledge to live as a man. To dress like a man, to work like a man, to assume the burdens and the liberties of a man. But these freedoms came with a price: The burrneshas also made a pledge of lifelong celibacy. Today these sworn virgins live on, but their numbers have dwindled. Many Albanians don't even know they exist. What happens when the society that created you no longer needs you? And how do you live in the meantime? https://www.gq.com/story/burrnesha-albanian-women-living-as-men
3. India/ South Asia:
Hijra is a term given to eunuchs, intersex people, and transgender people in South Asia. They are also known as Aravani, Aruvani or Jagappa. In many languages of India, especially outside North-West India, other terms are used such as chhakka. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijra_(South_Asia)
In Zapotec cultures of Oaxaca, a muxe is an assigned male at birth individual who dresses and behaves in ways otherwise associated with the female gender; they may be seen as a third gender. Some marry women and have children while others choose men as sexual or romantic partners. According to anthropologist Lynn Stephen, muxe "may do certain kinds of women’s work such as embroidery or decorating home altars, but others do the male work of making jewelry" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muxe
5. The Middle East
In the Middle East (Cradle of Civilization), MTF (male-to-female) priestesses were known to have served Astarte, Dea Syria, Atargatis and Ashtoreth / Ishtar. Additional MTF "gallae" served Cybele, the Phrygians' embodiment of The Great Mother. Trans expression was also present in the early genesis of the Kumbh Mela festival in Allahbad (India). http://www.bilerico.com/2008/02/transgender_history_trans_expression_in.php#QpBf6QPmY3YQ8oB6.99
In Africa, intersexed deities and spritual beliefs in gender transformation are recorded in Akan, Ambo-Kwanyama, Bobo, Chokwe, Dahomean (Benin), Dogon, Bambara, Etik, Handa, Humbe, Hunde, Ibo, Jukun, Kimbundu, Konso, Kunama, Lamba, Lango, Luba, Lugbara (where MTFs are called okule and FTMs are called agule), Lulua, Musho, Nat, Nuba, Ovimbundu, Rundi, Sakpota, Shona-Karonga, Venda, Vili-Kongo, and Zulu tribes. Some of this tradition survives in West Africa, as well as Brazilian and Haitian ceremonies that derive from West African religions. In Abomey, the Heviosso maintain trans traditions, in an area renowned for Amazon-like warrior women. http://www.bilerico.com/2008/02/transgender_history_trans_expression_in.php#QpBf6QPmY3YQ8oB6.99
Transgender/3rd Gender Policies Around the World Today
1. Sweden- Gender Neutral Pre-schools:
Since 1998, schools in Sweden have been asked to combat gender stereotypes. As Upworthy explains, administrator Lotta Rajalin has built her pre-school to be as gender-neutral as possible. Instructors are careful not to tell boys to “be a man” when they cry or get emotional, and Rajalin also tries to hire male teachers in order to have positive male influences who can model nurturing behavior for boys to emulate. https://www.simplemost.com/sweden-gender-neutral-pre-schools/
2. Canada- New Parental Laws:
Out of Ontario’s 86 legislators, 63 voted in favor of Bill 89 or “The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017” on June 1.
The legislation replaces the Child and Family Services Act which used to govern child protection, foster care and adoption services in the province.
The new law includes “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered by child protection services “in the best interests of the child.”
It deprives parents of their earlier right to “direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.”
The family is now only allowed to “direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”
3. Thailand- Cheap transition surgeries
The Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS) at Asia Cosmetic Hospital, Thailand is the best for you. Many want to change the gender origin both from male to female or from female to male. We can make your dream come true with the sex reassignment surgery (sex change). The procedure for male to female surgery or female to male surgery will be applied to the sexual organs from outside to inside. The vagina will be created deeper for a sex pleasure for male to be more enjoyable and the surgery helps to reposition the vagina lips and urine tube for better feelings. https://www.asiacosmeticthailand.com/services/sex-change-thailand/
4. France- Removes Law requiring surgical reassignment for legal gender recognition
Last week the French National Assembly passed legislation removing the surgical requirement for people who want to change their gender on official documents. This legislative change reflects a growing understanding among lawmakers that every person’s gender transition is different and gender marker changes should not require private medical information
5. World Health Organization: Decriminalize sex work, drug usage to help deter HIV
A World Health Organization (WHO) report issued this month details guidelines to address policies on and treatment of HIV among vulnerable populations including transgender people. Notably, the report urges governments to decriminalize behaviors to more comprehensively and competently address the spread of HIV:
"Countries should work toward decriminalization of behaviours such as drug use/injecting, sex work, same-sex activity and nonconforming gender identities, and toward elimination of the unjust application of civil law and regulations against people who use/inject drugs, sex workers, men who have sex with men and transgender people.
An Abomination to Yahuah: Scripture 2 Witnesses
Romans 1:22-27 (KJV)
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet
Leviticus 18:20-25 (KJV)
20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to defile thyself with her.
21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.
24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
So what is the Real reason the transgender movement is back?
**The worship of other gods, ancient religions resurfacing and destruction of faith in Yahuah.
52 Transgender gods
The Greek hero Achilles was invulnerable excepting his famous weak heel, but a male shieldbearer broke through the warrior’s romantic defenses. While Homer never explicitly states a gay relationship between Achilles and sidekick Patroclus, many scholars read a romantic connection between the two, as only Patroclus ever drew out a compassionate side to the famously arrogant warrior. Patroclus’s death at the hands of Trojan Prince Hector sent Achilles into a rage in which he killed Hector and dragged his body around Troy. Other myths also disclose Achilles was struck by the beauty of Troilus, a Trojan prince.
While a famous philanderer who sired countless demigods by every peasant girl in need of an explanation to her parents, Zeus famously selected the young mortal Ganymede to serve as his cupbearer on Mount Olympus. The relationship provided the foundation of the custom of paiderastia, the practice of Greek men at the time maintaining erotic relationships with adolescent boys on the side.
Of course, many mythological texts and artworks connect Daphnis to the satyr Pan, god of music. Pan frequently was depicted in sculpture chasing both women and men around with his always-erect penis and oversized scrotum. Half man. Half goat. Bisexual. Size queen.
Pansexuality is sexual, romantic, or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity. Pansexual people may refer to themselves as gender-blind, asserting that gender and sex are not determining factors in their romantic or sexual attraction to others
According to Pindar’s First Olympian Ode, Pelops, the king of Pisa, once shared “Aphrodite’s sweet gifts” with the ocean god himself. Pelops for a time was taken to Olympus by Poseidon and trained to drive the divine chariot.
