Theodore Dalrymple weighs in at Law & Liberty on the absolute lunacy that is the attempted normalization of the mental disorder known as gender dysphoria (i.e. the radical ideology of transgenderism) after reading another intellectually feeble “scientific” paper.
We increasingly think that we live in an existential supermarket in which we pick from the shelf of limitless possibilities whatever we want to be. We forget that limitation is not incompatible with infinity; for example, that our language has a grammar that excludes certain forms of words, without in any way limiting the infinite number of meanings that we can express. Indeed, such limitation is a precondition of our freedom, for otherwise nothing that we said would be comprehensible to anybody else.
