“Born this way” arguments, such as those employed by the LGBT crowd are inane. They basically boil down to: “I was born this way, therefore I am off limits from criticism as it was not a conscious choice.” The reasons for the inanity of such arguments are three-fold: such arguments can be equivalent for drastically different groups according to acceptance in society, they shield one from criticism arbitrarily and they attempt to eliminate the fringe whose status may have come through conscious choice.
A baby is born and immediately is taken from the mother to go into surgery. You see, the baby was born with extra digits and the doctor decreed that it must be saved from a lifetime of stigma. Somewhere else in the hospital, a baby is born with ambiguous genitalia. It is also whisked away to be “fixed”. Cures are sought every day for those peculiarities that society has deemed diseased. Whether or not the afflicted suffer at all is not in question, whether those with the power can accept such “deformity” is. Society has come to pathologize aspects of the human condition that are deemed taboo or aesthetically unpleasing. Boundaries have been set and those that are unlucky enough to cross such boundaries are deemed in need of a cure by those with the power. Individuality is destroyed in the name of group conformity and membership. This is the nature of man.
As I look back at my childhood twenty years later, I cannot think that it was anything remarkable. Some of you may think so, but to me it was a mere rite of passage and a required period of any human life. There were characters in that chapter of life that many would find repugnant, myself one of them. But, to me, it was nothing. If anything, it merely built character.
My father was definitely antisocial as was his father was before him. I swore I would never become like them. In essence, I am what I was born to hate.
My father would lie and steal, manipulate and assault. He had no regard for other human life and he showed that on a daily basis. He disowned all three of his children at one point or another because we would not bow to his will. He thought he was superior, but in the end he was very low-functioning. These kinds of idiots are easy to win against.
