Have you heard of anti-Trump surgeon Eugene Gu?

More importantly, have you heard the news about men?

I’ll let Eugene deliver it:

“It’s a scientific and medical fact that men can get pregnant and also have abortions.”

That’s what he posted to Twitter on July 12th.

It brings to mind, of course, Julian Castro’s comment in the Democratic debate (here):

“And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman — or, let’s also not forget, someone in the trans community, a trans female — is poor doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right [to an abortion].”

“Trans female” = dude.

The good doctor was also referencing a notion of opposite-sex identity, though he got the plumbing correct:

“Trans men and non-binary individuals are human beings who deserve to be acknowledged by society. They choose their own identity — not me, not you, not any doctor, and certainly not any politician.”

If I may, I’d like to pause here and point out something that has nothing to do with transgenderism, but rather, a larger idea:

Nobody has the “right” to be acknowledged by society as any given thing. People have the right to think whatever they want, about whatever and whomever they want. Furthermore, they have the right to say whatever they want, about whatever and whomever they want.

It is, to me, both against liberty and in support of one of our greatest contemporary maladies — narcissism — to suggest that people have a “right” to be considered in any given way. You should live your life as you deem fit; if you’re waiting for the world to salute you for it, you’re living according to others. That’s good for no one.

Back to Dr. Eugene, Twitter had a lot to say:

Dr. Rosen Rosen is a musician who composed for the movie Son of Eyeball Man.

Here’s Dr. Hackenbush:

Inez Stepman, of The Federalist, added one:

And there was this:

One user called up Rachel Dolezal:

More:

And this:

And that’s where we are.

This isn’t Dr. Gu’s first time to make headlines. As reported by The Daily Wire:

Gu’s claim to fame is kneeling to apparently protest America’s pervasive racism, a nod to anthem-kneeling former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The persistent Trump-basher even sued the president after Trump blocked him on Twitter; Trump was eventually forced to unblock Gu’s account.
