'Theybies': The Newest Affront to Traditional Gender Roles

Some kids are growing up not knowing whether they are boys or girls … or somewhere in between.

As of June 2016, the Williams Institute estimates that 0.6 percent of the United States population identifies as being transgender — accounting for about 1.4 million people. This stat indicates that transgender people are becoming an increasingly significant demographic, having both a political and cultural impact on America. Even President Trump acknowledged the group when he banned them from serving in the military this March.

Transgenders are generally lumped in with the larger LGBTQ community, but there’s virtually no common ground between them and gay men or women besides the fact that they’re all minorities. Contrary to the benign influences of the gay and lesbian communities, the breaking down of established gender behaviors, gender identities and the link between sex and gender all indicate a cultural shift that will have a negative impact on future generations.

This is because, from birth, some parents are shielding their kids from the reality of who they are biologically with respect to their gender. Kids raised this way are called “theybies,” named because it’s now accepted nomenclature to refer to genderless individuals with the third-person plural pronoun “they.”

There are two major problems that will inevitably afflict these children. One is that they will have trouble adapting to a world in which the sharp division between being a man or a woman is entrenched in every aspect of human civilization. The other is that they severely risk not being satisfied with their own bodies and even with their own conception of self.

Of the many responsibilities that parents have in raising their children, one of the most important ones is to ensure that they are aware of societal norms, etiquette and traditions in a way that allows them to assimilate into the world in which they’re living. This implies that there are better and worse ways to behave, think and interact with people around you. However, the Left tends to think that there’s no superior type of culture or system on which to organize society.

In other words, all behaviors, attitudes and practices are to be regarded as equal and to be integrated into society, whether or not they’re actually beneficial or would naturally integrate into society on their own. With this ideology at heart, parents are exposing their kids to a world comprised of a populous that expects to interact with people who identify as one of two common-sense and well-defined genders.

As theybies grow up and interact with more and more people, they will be inevitably confused, frustrated and likely to be yearning for an identity that they were never taught to have without guidance from their parents. This doesn’t even scratch the surface of the problems that arise once theybies reach adolescence and have to decide whether or not they want to keep their natural sex organs if said organs don’t match up with the gender with which they identify.

Are these problems worth the harsh realities that theybies face because of senseless experimentation from their ideologically regressive parents?
