The Morning Rant: Gluten Intolerance, Transgenderism, and Providing “Affirming” Treatments for Social Contagions

[Disclaimer – I fully understand that celiac disease is real, and that those who have celiac disease must eat a gluten free diet. I also know that a minutely small percentage of people have lifelong gender dysmorphia…people that didn’t just discover their condition on social media, or get talked into it by a teacher. I’m not talking about them. – Buck]

It’s a good thing the political-medical establishment didn’t advocate sterilizing and mutilating the bodies of those who got caught up in the gluten fad like they do for those caught up in the transgender fad. Both are social contagions - self-diagnosed maladies that inexplicably became trendy.

In the decade between the aughts and the ‘20s, the gluten-free dietary fad morphed into a pandemic of self-diagnosed gluten allergies that made its victims almost unbearable to be around.

Like me, you probably knew several people that turned their self-diagnosed “gluten allergies” into performance art, creating scenes in restaurants if even a crumb of bread touched their plates. Sadly, I also knew people who genuinely thought of gluten as if it were nuclear waste, and that simply being around it could cause them illness or death. They just knew they had the gluten disease, and it became a defining part of their identity and their lifestyle. What if “gluten-affirming care” had required that they be disemboweled and carry a colostomy bag for the rest of their lives?

Not coincidentally, most of the people I know who convinced themselves that they had deathly gluten intolerance were liberal fad-chasers who are always passionate about the latest big thing.

Right now, LGBTetc is the big thing. Straight young liberals don’t dare identify as heterosexual so they have to contort themselves to come up with a defining sexuality that allows them to be a part of the rainbow flag while still having a straight sex life.

Study: Rise in LGBT Identification Among Young People Is Significantly Influenced by ‘Social Trends’ [Legal Insurrection – 6/04/2022]

“The LGBT surge is socio-political, heavily siloed among very liberal young people. The General Social Survey shows that the heterosexual share dropped about 20 points, to 66%, within the most liberal fifth of young people. It changed far less among others.”

Fine. If they want to call themselves non-heterosexuals-who-still-date-heterosexuals, whatever.

What’s disturbing, however, is the sudden surge of people being seduced into identifying as being “assigned” the wrong sex. Per Pew Research, ”about 5% of young adults in the U.S. say their gender is different from their sex assigned at birth.”

The medical industrial complex has some diabolical (and very profitable) treatments for those who get caught up in the transgender fad. Ace and others have started to cover the multitude of horror stories involving young people – some minors – who now regret that they are sterile, will never enjoy sexual climax, and have irreversibly mutilated bodies.

The transgender fad will pass, much like the gluten fad has mainly passed. But unlike the former gluten sufferers who have moved on and are now happily eating artisanal bread, the victims of the transgender fad will not be able to move on once they fall prey to “gender affirming care.”

While we’re on the subject, could someone please tell Transgender-Americans that white supremacy is not cool.

Progressive Lutheran Denomination’s First Transgender Bishop Accused of Racism, Resigns One Year into Term [Breitbart – 6/09/2022]

Lutheran Bishop Megan Rohrer of the Sierra Pacific Synod (ELCA), the first openly transgender bishop in a major Christian denomination, has resigned over racism allegations after firing the Puerto Rican pastor of a church in Stockton, California.

Just because transgenders are the ascendant victim group at this cultural moment doesn’t mean they should feel free to unleash hatred and bigotry upon people of color.
