‘Over the weekend images of a bloke in a frock were being lauded as “stunning” and “glamorous”.
He is a big fella who once upon time played AFL and now is the darling of a media pack so out of touch with reality that they print nonsense such as he is now a “she”.
He can change his name to sound more feminine, and even wear a glamorous gown, but it is nothing more than “lipstick on a pig” as the saying goes.
It is appropriation of stereotypes and nothing more.
A frock, make-up and a handbag do not make a woman.
For Fox Sports, The Courier Mail, the Daily Mail and the ABC to report that they do is insulting and ridiculous.
Laidley is male. That is a fact.
News outlets are clearly not interested in printing facts. They choose to sell fiction and expect the rest of us to buy it.
Well, I for one, do not buy it.
I don’t care if it is Laidley or any other bloke appropriating womanhood, it is simply not on. No transgender person can explain WHY they *feel* like the opposite sex without resorting to stereotypes and subjective feelings.
Their “feelings” are not more important than mine or yours. The point is, feelings are irrelevant when dealing with the facts.
Male is male. Female is female. Always was. Always will be, no matter how much lipstick you apply.’
