He is carrying on about the fact that some among the Religious Right think that transsexual women are "super gay." Hmmm.....and this surprises Mr. Sandeen, why?
After all, Sandeen is a leader among those who wish to tightly going "transgender" which he falsely claims includes transsexuals, to lesbians, gays, and bisexuals. So, what does he expect? For extremists on the Right to have more sense that extremists on the left and somehow realize that this is all a silly political construct? Oh wait, not even Sandeen fully understands that.
Of course, the Religious Right now sees transsexuals as "super gay." Why wouldn't they, when fools like Sandeen are effectively telling them that transsexuals are, well, part of the LGBT community?
Oh, and Sandeen tries to argue that the Bible supports transgender people because
“For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother’s womb; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it.”Now, Sandeen, who is himself a eunuch, who has tried to falsely claim that having his testicles removed was "genital reconstruction surgery," actually makes the completely absurd argument that since this was the "only genital reconstruction surgery available in Biblical times," it means that God approves of transsexuals.
Now, I wrote a paper that was presented at an HBIGDA meeting concerning the religious aspects of Harry Benjamin Syndrome (aka transsexualism) and I did not need to resort to silliness like this. I mean, this is a completely bogus argument. This has nothing to do with gender identity, transsexualism, or silly men like Sandeen who want to be women with penises.
It is about eunuchs, men who have been castrated. Under Jewish law, such men were excluded from the Temple, though this was later changed under the Prophets. Jesus was just reiterating something mentioned elsewhere in the Bible.
And I cannot help but notice that Sandeen has finally persuaded the powers that be at LGBT Weekly in San Diego to block me from commenting there. As I say, he cannot abide anyone actually countering his silliness.
