If you were familiar with the David Chappelle show, then you know that Chappelle steps on everyone’s toes. He makes fun of Chinese, blacks, and he even dedicates an entire episode on the Klu Klux Klan.

Everyone thought Chappelle was funny until he made an interesting comment about human nature during his Netflix standup special The Closer. After years of being an entertainer, Chappelle seems to realize that the culture itself is existentially contradictory. He said:

“In our country, you can shoot and kill a nigger but you better not hurt a gay person’s feelings. And this is precisely the disparity that I wish to discuss.”

He is referring to many rappers and other people like Kevin Hart who have been politically stabbed in the back for expressing their opinions about basic biology. Chappelle moved on to say:

“Gender is a fact. Every human being in this room, every human being on earth, had to pass through the legs of a woman to be on earth.”

Who in his right mind would disagree with that? You are either born with a dick or a vagina. A dick represents a man, and a vagina represents a woman. It’s just that simple. As psychiatrist Paul R. McHugh of Johns Hopkins pointed out, transgederism is “biologically impossible,” and anyone who thinks that this fundamental law of nature can be broken is mentally sick.[1]

“Sex misalignment,” writes McHugh in the Wall Streets Journal, “is simply mistaken—it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes.”[2] McHugh continued:

“The transgendered suffer a disorder of ‘assumption’ like those in other disorders familiar to psychiatrists. With the transgendered, the disordered assumption is that the individual differs from what seems given in nature—namely one’s maleness or femaleness.

“Other kinds of disordered assumptions are held by those who suffer from anorexia and bulimia nervosa, where the assumption that departs from physical reality is the belief by the dangerously thin that they are overweight.

“With body dysmorphic disorder, an often socially crippling condition, the individual is consumed by the assumption ‘I’m ugly.’ These disorders occur in subjects who have come to believe that some of their psycho-social conflicts or problems will be resolved if they can change the way that they appear to others. Such ideas work like ruling passions in their subjects’ minds and tend to be accompanied by a solipsistic argument.

“For the transgendered, this argument holds that one’s feeling of ‘gender’ is a conscious, subjective sense that, being in one’s mind, cannot be questioned by others. The individual often seeks not just society’s tolerance of this ‘personal truth’ but affirmation of it. Here rests the support for ‘transgender equality,’ the demands for government payment for medical and surgical treatments, and for access to all sex-based public roles and privileges.”[3]

Other doctors such as Marci Bowers, who specializes in vaginoplasty, and Erica Anderson, a clinical psychologist at the University of California, would almost take similar views. “I think there was naivete on the part of pediatric endocrinologists who were proponents of early [puberty] blockage thinking that just this magic can happen, that surgeons can do anything,” said Bowers.[4]

Chappelle has said that he is willing to meet with transgender employees at Netflix, the network that shut down his show, but he is not going to prostrate before the powers that be. Chappelle declared:

To the transgender community, I am more than willing to give you an audience, but you will not summon me. I am not bending to anybody’s demands. And if you want to meet with me, I’d be more than willing to, but I have some conditions. First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end. You must come to a place of my choosing at a time of my choosing, and thirdly, you must admit that Hannah Gadsby is not funny.”

  1. Thanks for the article Jonas. In having to review some things recently to define down, for personal reference the easiest baseline is to say – you cannot change your chromosomes. The pushers conflate and contort this way and that but it is the unescapable simple statement that flattens any argument. There is much nonsense such as ‘gender is social construct’ and other, some pushers try anything even claim of being other genders with ‘mixed chromosomes’ which is nonsense. Whatever rare retardation anomaly is not ninety nine point nine nine of people. Cannot change your chromosomes. It’s short and hits the biology nail on the head.

    That’s not to say that people who choose to change appearance are necessarily wrong. On one hand people should be focusing on more dire things these days, though otherwise who cares. Only if they use that as a cover to do predatory acts against people, without disclosing their real identity. That’s different.

    In any case could say with so many sitting back in the face of problems it appears many people could do with a pump of testosterone, males and females both.

  2. Tommy,

    “Haven’t you read,” Jesus replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female.’?

    • Right back at you, Jonas. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” – 1st Amendment to the US Constitution

      Millions of Americans came to the USA on the run from the Inquisition, the 30 Years War, and the various pogroms that happened all over Europe. The last thing they want if for some crazy evangelical sect like US Christian Zionism telling them what to believe and how to live.

  3. Jonas please read this on wiki:

    “Before the Islamic Revolution in 1979, the issue of transgender identity in Iran had never been officially addressed by the government. Beginning in the mid-1980s, however, transgender individuals were officially recognized by the government and allowed to undergo sex reassignment surgery. In 2008, the BBC reported that Iran carries out more sex change operations than any other nation in the world except Thailand. The government provides up to half the cost for those needing financial assistance, and a sex change is recognized on the birth certificate.”

    There is more to it than what we see. Read the part that says “After the revolution”. I always wonder what was the exchange with Khomeini that made him issue the legal opinion.

    • Very interesting comment you have contributed. It’s difficult for me to sympathize with those that have problems with their gender. But a good friend killed himself and a large part of it was that he wanted to become a woman @ 55yrs old, but his wife forbade him doing it as said she would leave him if he did it. If he had confided in me about this wish. I suppose he thought I would not be sufficently kind. I would have told him to take a vacation in someplace where survival is far from assured like Yemen.

  4. It is the movement that put “assumed” self esteem in front of actual “earned self esteem” which really cascaded when it spilled over to protection and demand of societies affirmation.
    People are born, in such a variety, it is actually insane to not know that humans and animals alike can be born homosexual and all the variations that comes with that. That said, the new thing is to impose on society, that they affirm a persons choice to be called a man or woman.
    We can defend people from being persecuted, but we cannot dictate how the world embraces any idea or assumption. Keep in mind, the push for societal acceptance of the gay community, was due to constant persecution and mistreatment, yes, but also it was a large part of the Catholic response to public knowledge of how many priests were gay or pedophile. The push was to force society to accept gay priests. This is still going on.

    • On a percentage basis there would probably be no more psychosocial aberrations today than there were 2000 years ago, except for the weaponized promotion of the abberations and acepptance of such, as normal states of being.
      All in the effort to undermine “traditional culture”

    • Hi David
      kidfucking catholic priests lots to do with making it “acceptable” I agree,
      other main reasons why so much in USA is
      Prison time for so many
      Aversion to pussy if man
      Aversion to dick if woman
      Once bitten twice shy syndrome
      Being gay rapist but not admitting it to oneself or others (Trump)

  5. Jonas, I’m wondering why this is such a hot-button issue for you and the so-called Christian Right. Gordon has said many times that it wasn’t gays in the military that screwed things up in Vietnam. It was the “hillbillies” who ran on anger and adrenalin as they killed anything that moved. There’s this from Marine Colonel Robert D. Heinl Jr. in 1971…

    “By every conceivable indicator, our army that remains in Vietnam is in a state approaching collapse, with individual units avoiding or having refused combat, murdering their officers and non-commissioned officers…Sedition, coupled with disaffection from within the ranks, and externally fomented with an audacity and intensity previously inconceivable, infest the Armed Services…”

    • Tommy,

      Why don’t you focus on what was said in the article instead of piling up one red herring after another? The fact is that people like Chappelle cannot have the same level of freedom to express their views in their show in the same way that Chappelle has expressed his views throughout his career. Can you explain that?

    • This is hardly just a free speech issue, Jonas. “The transgendered suffer a disorder of ‘assumption’ like those in other disorders familiar to psychiatrists. With the transgendered, the disordered assumption is that the individual differs from what seems given in nature—namely one’s maleness or femaleness.” This is why Jesus said absolutely nothing about being gay or transgendered… Nothing, but love everybody, including your enemies.

  6. A very funny comedian. I liked the riff on wearing a woman’s dress on the Oprah Winfrey Show. The deeper he got the more alarmed she became. It was a hoot.

  7. I remember one fun Chappelle stand up in 2000 where said he wouldn’t vote by Bush Jr. because he sniff cocaine and should be dangerous have that guy in the WH, he be selling nuclear secrets by twenty or thirty bucks…. almost he had been right.
