Universities across the U.S. have started to refer to their students by ze and xe, zir and xyr, and other made up pronouns. More and more young people are claiming to be transgendered—confused about their gender. They have begun to make known their “preferred pronoun” they each wish to be called. Instead of he or she, ze and xe or some other made-up pronoun could be the way they wish to be called.
How did we get here? How did we get to the point where the political elites can claim there are more than two genders? Your grandparents would have never imagined this 40 years ago.
I will attempt to answer the question by assigning the blame to our culture’s embrace of contraception use.
THE 1960’S BEGAN THE SLOW DESCENT TO MADNESS
With the sexual revolution of the 1960’s “free love” became trendy. The hookup culture became a popular activity. In came the so-called “freedom” of love expression by way of sexual deviancy. Out went the social norms of waiting for marriage to have sex and bearing children while in wedlock.
The rise of the birth control pill and other contraceptives began to flood the open market. “Sex with consequences” became a thing many in the culture began to embrace. With contraception use becoming so prevalent in our society, people disassociated sexual activity with the responsibility of raising children.
Thus, the first step to our modern day chaos was achieved. That is, sex and babies no longer needed to go together. The sexual revolution was underway.
THE NEXT LOGICAL JUMP
Well, as our society has begun to operate on this premise, the fallout has mushroomed. If sex and babies need not go together, then folks do not need to get married in order to maintain stable homes for those non-existing, unwanted children. Men and women began living together without making the commitment of marriage.
Marriages themselves began experiencing shorter lifespans, since the “glue” of working together to raise children dissolved. Marriage has become to so many a means to achieve personal gain and pleasure, rather than a means to offer sacrifice in love for one’s spouse and children. If the marriage did not satisfy the selfish needs of one or both spouses, adultery and porn use stepped in to fill the void.
If spouses remained unhappy, divorce became a culturally-expected means to find happiness elsewhere. After all, if marriage was merely a state of life to appease adults, then unhappy adults were free to become unmarried. In short, marriage became an optional form of sexual expression devoid of lifelong commitments to fidelity and permanence.
As we saw, after sex and babies become disjointed, in turn so did sex and marriage. Sex morphed from an activity reserved for Holy Matrimony to a recreational sport for pleasure to be engaged by any two (or more) willing partners. Sexual activity no longer needed to be “fenced in” by the cumbersome realities of spouses and children.
Society embraced the idea that sexual activity between a man and a woman was acceptable, regardless of their married state. Sex became a pleasureful pursuit instead of an expression of fidelity and permanence. Thus, the rise of so-called “gay marriage” became vogue too.
After all, if sex is merely an expression of two people’s love for one another, then what difference does it make which two people partake in the activity? Gay people had just as much a “right” to express their love sexually with their gay partners as heterosexual couples, in this worldview. For a society that accepts the sale of contraception at every gas station and grocery store in the country, how could they resist?
So where do the transgender people come in? How did they rise to prominence given this moral upheaval? Well, the answer need not surprise anyone.
If babies need not come from sexual activity, then it matters not who engages in sexual activity. As well, if babies need not come from sexual activity, then the sexual complementarity of males and females no longer means anything in this culture. To be male means nothing. To be female means nothing.
In reality, society is built on the sexual complementarity of males and females. But in this New World Order of genderless existence, this culture doesn’t value maleness nor femaleness. Men’s role as life givers has been devalued and the society is working to eradicate this feature of manhood out of existence. As well, the culture has been built in such a way now for about 60 years to erase the biological “accident” of women being capable of bearing children.
Our bodies are now thought to be mere machines devoid of consequence other than to seek pleasure for ourselves. Who we are has been separated from what we are within our bodies. The body parts themselves have lost any purpose or meaning.
With cultural distinctions being erased between the sexes, it is some small wonder those who are confused as to which gender they are have been embraced with support. If the binary sex model of human nature can be erased, then how we refer to one another in the use of pronouns can change too. Ze and xe has replaced he and she.
Now that we have let the toothpaste out of the bottle by rejecting our God-given human nature, what hope do we have to reverse course? It appears to me the chaos is only going to get amplified. And to think, all this came about by the culture accepting the use of contraception. As a result, I am afraid it appears ze and xe are here to stay. God, have mercy.
What do you make of the rise of the ze and xe “preferred pronouns?”
