“You can’t have babies, Stan… You haven’t got a womb!”

Paul Weston wades into the Culture Wars with his latest essay. Or should I say “the Behavioral Sink”?

“You can’t have babies, Stan… You haven’t got a womb!”

by Paul Weston

Equalities Minister (Conservative…) Justine Greening wants to change the law to allow people to specify their gender on their birth certificate. Presumably there will be a time scale on this. After all, a newborn baby, no matter how desirous of immediate gender transition, would be unlikely to communicate his/her/zie/its ambitions in this regard.

As we move further to the Left in the West, we seem to become ever more unhinged from reality. But here’s the thing: reality is reality, and nothing can change it, not even the crazed diktats of witless women running peculiar departments in what was once a sane political party.

Take for example a birth certificate in the name of John Bloggs, born on the 3rd of March 1999. Gender, male. No matter how much John dislikes the 1999 era, there is nothing he can do to change the year he was born into. It is just a reality. He can tell everyone he was actually born in 1576 but no one will believe him. Indeed, they might consider him irredeemably insane.

Not so long ago, those considered insane were treated in the hope of curing their insanity. Today, the law is being rewritten to accommodate their insanity. Which is of course, insane. And those who should really know better are climbing onto the insanity juggernaut, which is steadily picking up speed as our politicians, educators and journalists steer it toward the cliff edge.

The Daily Mail is not usually known for toeing the PC line, but their recent article on pregnant men should really be read in full, if only to appreciate the tsunami of mental breakdown currently afflicting the West. When a mainstream newspaper can talk about pregnant men and men giving birth without any apparent awareness of the mental derangement implicit in this lunatic fantasy, then you know the West is in big trouble.

Words have meaning. Men are not women, no matter how much they want to be. Women are not men, no matter how much they want to be. And dogs are not cats, no matter how much they want to be. This irrational absurdity was best summed up in the immortal words of Reg (John Cleese) to Stan (Eric Idle) “You can’t have babies, Stan…. you haven’t got a womb!”

It is the perverted Left which seems intent on making words and reality meaningless. The EU motto “United in Diversity” is a case in point, as are “racist” and “Islamophobic” when used to describe a race of people who wish to continue as a race of people whilst genuinely threatened by a genuinely threatening ideology.

Two other words rendered meaningless by the Left are “Nazi” and “Socialism.” Left-Liberals label everyone a Nazi if they voice concerns about flooding the West with millions of people with a positively Naziesque attitude toward global domination, supremacism, women, Jews, homosexuals and democracy. Which is more than a little odd, when one looks at it logically and rationally.

Left-Liberals still claim there is an inherent goodness manifested in socialism, no matter Stalin, Mao and Hitler were all socialists and no matter the murder of over 100 million people in its name, along with the moral, social, familial, environmental and economic ruin socialism bestowed upon the 20th and 21st centuries.

This Left-Liberal flight from reality and survival is very difficult to resist. Which poses rather a problem when one considers the inevitable final destination is the utter extinction of Western Civilisation. And I say difficult to resist, because the madmen and madwomen who are steering us toward extinction have total control over us.

The next couple of decades will certainly be eventful. If the sane ever regain control, it will only come about after the insane have been thoroughly destroyed and chased from their citadels of power. Whether this happens or not is entirely in the hands of you, dear reader.

Paul Weston is a British-based writer who focuses on the damage done to Western Civilisation by the hard left’s ongoing cultural revolution, which seeks to destroy the Christian, capitalist and racial base of the West. He is the leader of Liberty GB. His website may be found here, and his political Facebook page here. For links to his previous essays, see the Paul Weston Archives.

  1. A rare moment of sanity from a British politician.

    Unfortunately, not a politician in government.

  2. I’m transclergy so there! We just declared the Pope Anathema and joined the Anglicans. I’ve always felt I was born in the wrong cassock. I used ti dress up in Protestant robes when the Bishop wasn’t looking. Now that I am a Bishop I can undergo treatment to become fully Anglican.

    Thoswho don’t agree with my transition are guilty of Anglicophobia and I am goinge to report you to Jeremy Corbyn so there!

  3. It doesn’r matter what they call themselves.. They were born female and as FEMALES gave birth to their poor children.. I call them ‘poor children’ because they are going to have a LOT of problems about gender identity.. No doubt their “daddies” will choose the sex they want their child to be, regardless of it’s biological body…
    This whole transgender ‘thing’ is getting way out of hand.. It is ridiculous the amount of pandering done to .003% of the population.. There are only 2 sexes – male and female, all the rest are aberrations

    • It is all part of the larger globalist agenda to break down and atomize the sense of belonging of as many Westerns as possible with the ultimate goal of destroying healthy, functioning Western communities and relationships. This supports their goal of turning Western reproductive rates negative.

      • You’re exactly right the objectives you described are exactly those of the cultual-Marxist school

        Cultural Marxists support everything that breaks down the sense of community, belonging, and culture

        • The cultural Marxist flipside is the elevation and worship of non-Western people and cultures, and how strong their families and communities are, and the reflexive assumption they should have unlimited breeding rights.

  4. If you mistakenly thought you were Napoleon, would the state pay for surgery to allow you to be physically more akin to your delusion? Would you be allowed to assume the identity of Napoleon Bonaparte? No, you would be (hopefully) treated for your psychological problem. I genuinely feel sorry for these poor people who have this confused delusion. But make no mistake it is a delusion. More suicides are reported of so called trans-gender people after surgery and the assumption of their desired gender than before. Just the fact that there are so many suicides associated with this pathology screams loud and clear, it is a psychological issue, and not a social one.

    • The Napoleon thing is bit of a dated cliché.

      Nowadays if you turned up claiming to be Napoleon no one would be interested, unless it were bothering you or the neighbours.

      I knew a chap who believed he was a member of the Star Trek crew, didn’t bother him, didn’t bother anyone else, Captain Kirk probably wasn’t bothered either. No reason to intervene. If he legally wanted to change his name to Dr Spock or whatever that wouldn’t be a problem either. In fact he could claim to be a Klingon for all anyone cared.

      Years (60s) ago a study was done whereby a group of researchers in America told psychiatrists they kept hearing a voice saying ‘Thump’ (no other symptoms), they all got admitted and had some trouble getting out.

      The study was repeated in the last decade and this time the response was basically ‘so what?’

      ‘Otherkin’ and Furries, now, there’s a real threat to general sanity.

      • I think you mean “Mr Spock” (played by the recently deceased Leonard Nimoy). Dr Spock was someone entirely different!

  5. The latest is menstruation. Apparently, that isn’t gender specific either. Some bloke posted a pic of himself ‘freebleeding’ on a parkbench. He was biologically female, and trying to make a point.
    To hell with this open air asylum. I am done, the whole pc thing is turning everyone psychotic.

  6. The Right abandoned the culture to the socialists decades ago, so why the surprise? We don’t need more think tanks or political campaigns, we need to produce culture.

  7. Transgender people are simply ; Cross Sressers with surgical Enhancements ” Nothing more.

  8. If people have a sense of gender identity that is causing significant psychological distress and if undergoing gender change leads to a happier and more fulfilled life then I don’t see a problem. Nor would I (or any other mental health professional) call them insane. Its only lately that this has become an issue, Jan Morris was not seen as a threat to society, nor was that UKIP politician and boxing promoter whose name escapes me.

    • H.H. Munro (Saki) informs me you should be called Clovis Sangrail, Mr Sangreal.

      • He said I could get away with the misspelling just this once – otherwise I get demoted to The Unbearable Bassington.

        • Ha! I don’t think many people have heard of H.H. Munro (Saki) but anyone who appreciates beautiful writing, savage wit and a description of an ethereal Britain no longer here, sadly, should read his short stories. He volunteered to fight in WWI in his forties. Shot by a sniper in Nov 1916. His last words, apparently, were “Put that bloody light out!”

          • Off topic if that’s ok.
            I’m a great fan – tho obviously a bit forgetful with spelling the names of characters.

            The Unrest Cure brings you up with a bit of a shock (won’t give the plot away), but its one of his best.

  9. Yes! The insanity juggernaut is trundling out of control, crushing all in its path. A sort of de-construction of everything, blindly smashing the foundations of society, just to see what the ruins look like.

  10. The Dutch railways (ns.nl) just announced that they would abolish the classical address “Ladies and gentlemen” and replace it with a plain “Dear passengers”.
    Many people object to the change from a classical expression to a plain, empty and merely functional phrase.
    NOT being addressed to as a “lady” or a “gentleman” could also be thought of as being offensive, especially when actually being a paying customer,
    But I doubt if we would get any positive response from the railway company or the court (if we would bother to take it that far).
    The wish of the overall majority is, once again, sacrificed for the (only alleged) wish of 0.03% of the population.

  11. This is a pretty useless article because it clearly ignores medical facts that are well known and studied for decades now. Prohibiting transgender people from transitioning is like prohibiting diabetics from medication or people with poor eyesight from wearing glasses – after all they were also born this way and who cares that we have methods that can help them, right?
    The fact that countries like America allow sex change in your ID without changes on your body has nothing to do with doctors, it’s a pure lack of proper laws.
    Over here in Czechia transgender people have to go through several psychological tests (to ensure they are transgender and not mentally ill), then they can start hormone therapy and have to live at least one year that way (in the new role basically), then they can inquire for a special committee of various kinds of doctors, lawyers, etc. and if they can prove their overall well-being improved and their family and friends accepted the change, they are given the ok to undergo surgery. The sex in the ID isn’t changed until the womb or testicles are removed. All that is set in law and takes years, so nobody does it “for fun”. Blame your politicians for having “pregnant men”, but leave the actual transpeople out of it, they have enough [stuff] to deal with as it is (those wannabes included).

    • For an opposing point of view, see here:


      Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

      Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.

      He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”

      Currently, there are children who are being treated with sex hormones that will delay/distort the onset of adolescence to “fix” their gender dysphoria. In response, the American College of Pediatricians has issued their findings:


      1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of male and female, respectively – not genetic markers of a disorder.

      2. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.

      3. A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.

      4. Puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous.

      5. According to the DSM-V, as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.

      6. Pre-pubertal children diagnosed with gender dysphoria may be given puberty blockers as young as eleven, and will require cross-sex hormones in later adolescence to continue impersonating the opposite sex. These children will never be able to conceive any genetically related children even via artificial reproductive technology. In addition, cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to cardiac disease, high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke, diabetes, and cancer.

      7. Rates of suicide are nearly twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries.

      8. Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.

  13. I have a friend, of many years’ standing, now in his 60s, who wears (fairly) masculine attire in public, apart from keeping his hair long (which could just make him an old hippie) and painting his nails. I understand that he sometimes wears women’s clothes at home, and has an under-developed penis. He’s considered transgender surgery, but decided against. He’s also a devout Christian. How could anyone consider that he’s “chosen” his sexually ambiguous status?
