juxtaposition the MSM are failing to see.
something that ainít being talked about during
all of the media crapola over black-faced and kinky-haried Iím-black-too, Rachel Dolezal,
who heads the Spokane NAACP. And that something is Bruce Jenner.
I mean, on the one hand youíve got the media (Time,
all over themselves, going gaga 24/7 over the Jenner/Vanity Fair
freak-show as if Jenner had just landed an Airbus on the Hudson River, and on the other
hand the media( NYT,
) are treating Dolezal as if she murdered a whole basket full
Whatís screwy about this lack of juxtaposition by the
media is that both of these people are claiming to have changed into a
biological form that their DNA says they ainít. But hereís the rub:
Jennerís revocation of what nature dealt him is thousands of times
greater than Dolezalís revocation of what nature dealt her, genetically
speaking. So why is it that Jenner is getting a media high-five and
Dolezal is getting a media bitch-slap?
One of the great discoveries of the DNA sequencing
methodology is the fact that the genetic differences between human races
are next to nil. Out of all of the genes that make you a human, the ones
that make you a white human opposed to, say, a black human are quantitatively
insignificant. Ditto Eskimo, Asian, Jew, or Republican. The average
genetic differences between blacks and whites is less than the sum of
differences between two non-related white guys chosen at random. That means that what
Dolezal wants people to think she is is practically the same, genetically,
as what she is. Nothing that a little shoe polish and a permanent canít
Jenner, on the other hand, is usurping nature at the
level not of a few mere DNA sequences, but of entire chromosomes. He
presents himself as an XY female, which, short of an endocrine tumor or
other malfunction, is biologically absurd. The difference between that Y
chromosome he has and the second X chromosome he wants you to think he has
Speaking as a biologist, it is clear to me that no
matter how much shoe-polish, make-up, hair curling treatments, breast
implants, hormone injections, or jive-talk they rely on, Jenner and
Dolezal are both just play-acting. You are what your DNA says you are.
OTOH, speaking as a lawyer, Iím behind both of them, for the right to play act is protected
by the freedom of speech clause of the First Amendment Ė short of
committing fraud or adversely affecting someone elseís rights, you go
girls!! Er . . . or whatever.
I just wish the media would focus more on the biological
similarities and differences in who these two are and want to be and quit with the
implicit racism and explicit transgender glorification.
