The Other McCain has a post about women in combat, a topic I admit I have not really thought about, so I will reserve comment on that. So why am I linking this post? Well, at the very end of the post, McCain notes the story of Sadie. A transgender girl of 11, who was a boy, until at age five, when he, or is it she, decided, on her or is it his own that he or she was really a girl, and transitioned
“Sadie was so proud of President Obama for including the gay community in his inaugural address on Monday; however, she felt like the trans community wasn’t included,” Sage, Sadie’s mother, told The Huffington Post on Tuesday. “That inspired her to write her own ‘speech.'”
The Trans Community? Boy, these Liberals do have a community for everything. This community, that community, segregation seems to be a big hit with the Left the way they love to divide everyone, but identity politics is just how they roll I guess. But, back to Sadie for a minute.
The speech, which began making the rounds on the Internet soon after the President spoke and was published in full on the TransGriot site, reads:
“The world would be a better place if everyone had the right to be themselves, including people who have a creative gender identity and expression. Transgender people are not allowed the freedom to do things everyone else does, like go to the doctor, go to school, get a job, and even make friends.
I am all for anyone, even a kid writing a letter to Obama, or any politician, so I have no issue with the letter. Or with Sadie. My issue would lie with Sadie’s parents, or whomever has indoctrinated her into believing she is no allowed to got to a doctor, or make friends, or get a job or get an education. Also, I would ask this. How does a five-year-old “decide” that they are the wrong gender? That seems very young to make such a decision, So the issue with me is not whether or not someone can be “trapped in the wrong body”, or whatever the PC term is for that these days, My issue is how this very young person already sounds like a die hard Leftist
Sadie socially transitioned from male to female in kindergarten. She was home schooled until this year and is now in fifth grade and attending public school. A vegan, she loves anything that “protects the environment,” as well as reading, swimming, basketball and texting her friends. She listens to Lady Gaga, Pink and Justin Bieber and wants to work for Green Peace when she grows up. She also wants to be a mom.
Though Sadie has been openly discriminated against, her mother says that she “isn’t shy or ashamed of who she is,” and adds, “I’m always ‘on’ when we go out because I never know when she’ll strike up a conversation with the person in front of her in line at Trader Joe’s. When she chats with people, she introduces herself as, ‘Hi, I’m Sadie, my favorite color is pink, I’m vegan, and I’m transgender. Who are you?'”
Don’t think this child has been coached to be that way? To be so put front with her eating habits, and that she is transgender? Or perhaps mommy dearest is embellishing these stories a bit, or a lot? Maybe mommy is living her activists wet dream out through Sadie? Sorry, but something seems askew with this story to me.
By the way, I would like to congratulate myself for writing an entire post about transgender issues WITHOUT going to the glaring Rachel Maddow/Chris Hayes question.
