Japan’s trannies ordered to get the chop-chop

In the West, the rainbow alphabet lobby are running hard on ?self-identification?, the idea that anyone should be able to decide on a whim whether they?re a gentleman or a lady, regardless of whether they?re packing a pole or a hole. Naturally, women?s groups in particular are not so keen on the idea that any dude can pack his tackle in a pair of frilly undies and sashay into the lady?s change rooms to check out the talent.

Asian societies, which traditionally emphasise the rights of the group over the individual, are also generally less than keen. Japan, in particular, is having no truck with ?self-identification?. If you want to change your sex in Japan, then you have to really change your sex. Quote:

Japan?s Supreme Court ruled earlier this year transgender people must be sterilized in order to be legally recognized by their self-identified gender. End of quote.

The headline is grossly misleading, it should be noted. The court ruling was not on ?sterilisation?, but on actual, surgical sex change. Sterility, though, is the side-result. Quote:

The ruling came after Takakito Usui, a transgender man, sued over being required to have his ovaries and uterus removed in order to be officially acknowledged as a male.

Japan also requires that transgender people have surgery to make their genitals look more male or female, be older than 20, not have minor children, and be diagnosed with ?gender-identity disorder?. End of quote.

In other words, if you?re going to claim to be ?transgender?, then prove it. Quote:

In Japan, courts have prioritized the maintaining of social harmony over the championing of individual rights. However, the Supreme Court did acknowledge during Usui?s lawsuit that laws may have to evolve along with the rest of society.

Those changes may be coming sooner rather than later. According to recent polling, 70 percent of Japanese residents indicated they support more legal protections for gay and transgender people. Meanwhile, scattered cities and towns around the country have begun giving out partnership certificates to same-sex couples similar to civil union arrangements in the United States.

Human-rights organizations have warned that sex reassignment surgeries pose dangers to the patient, noting they should not be required for gender recognition. End of quote.


Oddly enough, many people have warned that the kinds of ?gender affirming medical care? that the tranny lobby tries to foist on gender-confused kids, such as cross-hormone therapy and puberty blockers, also pose dangers to patients. Including sterility. Many, if not most, of these will inevitably change their minds and revert to their true, biological sex. By then it may be too late.

So, it seems that it?s ok for creepy activists to peddle therapies that have a grave risk of infertility onto children, but not ok for the state to demand that so-called ?transgenders? put their money where their gonads are.

But Japan?s court ruling also highlights the major problem with transgenderism. Its proponents claim that it is a matter of their rights, and totally ignore the way it impacts the rights of others, especially women. Women have every right to ark up at the idea that anyone can just assert that they are 100% a woman, despite that inconvenient meat?n?two-veg, and the law has to treat them seriously. At the same time, it?s undeniably authoritarian for the state to force gender-confused to surrender their fertility with surgical finality.

It?s obvious that the to-and-fro over transgenderism has a long way to go before any kind of happy medium can be found that is congenial to all sides. Perhaps one never will be found. But at the moment, states are rushing to force through dangerous laws, while the extremists, not least in the tranny lobby, are shouting the loudest and trying the hardest to stamp their rights all over everyone else?s.
