A man in Tampa, Florida is causing liberals a conflict of interest. Leftist push the non-gender mentality, but simultaneously fight against whites who “culturally appropriate” beliefs and practices from other cultures that have been oppressed by whites. Now, a transgender, trans-race white man believes that he is a Filipino woman.
A transracial person used to be the term for a couple who were raising an adopted child of another race, but thanks to the liberal push for fantasy acceptance, it now refers to a person who has a deluded belief that they are another race.
Rachel Dolezal engendered disgust after “identifying” as an African American, although she is white. She portrays herself as black, although it is not true, so essentially, she lives and believes a lie.
Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino woman. He drives around in a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines. The mentally ill person says he grew up enjoying the food, events, and culture of the Philippines.
“Whenever I’m around the music, around the food, I feel like I’m in my own skin,” he said.
“I’d watch the history channel sometimes for hours you know whenever it came to that and you know nothing else intrigued me more but things about Filipino culture,” he added.
Not only is this man culturally appropriating the entire Filipino culture, he’s appropriating the female sex. Why is this treated as a normal circumstance?
Well, one reason is the proliferation of liberal educators and mental health personnel who think every sort of deranged belief is perfectly fine. The only beliefs they find offensive are ones that involve the right to defend yourself with firearms, or the right to protect the country from invaders.
Dr. Stacey Scheckner, a licensed psychologist with a B.A. from Washington University, plus M.A. and doctorate from Florida State, explained this issue saying, “If someone feels that they feel at home with a certain religion, a certain race, a certain culture, I think that if that’s who they really feel inside life is about finding out who you are. The more knowledge you have of yourself, the happier you can be.”
So this really isn’t a cultural appropriation, it’s the support of wackos.
“And, as long as it’s not hurting yourself or anyone else, I don’t see a problem with that.”
Actually, that sort of thinking is faulty. Adam is hurting himself and there will definitely be people who will be angry that a white man wants to be part of their culture without asking. For example, if a person identifies as a shark and then takes a long jump off a short pier, will the sharks welcome him?
“If that’s who they are and they want to celebrate it and enjoy it, then you have to think what harm is it doing? All they want to do is throw themselves into that culture and celebrate it,” Schneckner said. She added, “I think before we get offended, we need to take a step back and think about what is the harm.”
Perhaps, as a mental health professional, she should step back and consider the illogic of supporting such beliefs, and consider the harm it can do to enable the concept of unreality.
Supporting a person’s desire to live a life totally unconnected with reality is culpable. It seems that she should recognize the danger of enabling an imaginary life, the consequences of which could be a further plunge into fantasy where normal rules of right and wrong no longer apply.
According to Johns Hopkins current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry and former psychiatrist-in-chief Dr. Paul McHugh, transgenderism is a mental disorder that should be treated, not encouraged. Perhaps Schneckner thinks she is more experienced than a man who was involved in running the most prestigious work on the subject of sex changes in history?
Ja Du, as he calls himself, doesn’t want to get grants, scholarships, or special treatment like Dolezal, he just wants to live in his fantasy world, detached from reality. Hopefully, he won’t degenerate into a criminal like many do, because the push to remove all morality and the acceptance of reality is a dangerous one.
