AS A GUY, A FLOP WITH CHICKS. PASSING AS A CHICK, A FLOP WITH GUYS.

David French summarizes our current cultural psychosis.
The video [at the link] is one of the sadder short clips I’ve seen. In it, a teenage boy who calls himself Claire dons a bikini top, adopts exaggerated feminine mannerism, and hits the beach with friends to show the challenges of transgender dating. He apparently fools two straight guys into believing he’s a girl and he gets their phone number. Later, he laments that they lose interest when they find out he’s male.
But under the new dispensation, if you suggest that perhaps emergent behavior of long standing confers an evolutionary advantage and it ought be deconstructed with great care or not at all, you're the mentally unhealthy one.  And Mr French is likely to catch all heck for suggesting otherwise.  "As thousands of years of human experience have taught us, if one’s desires are disordered, then achieving them often means heartache."
