From the Washington Times:

SEAL Team 6 member becomes Pentagon’s poster girl in transgender recruiting

Former Navy SEAL Chris Beck chronicles the transformation to a woman, Kristin Beck, in her new book “Warrior Princess.”

By Bill Gertz -The Washington Times Thursday, June 26, 2014

A former member of SEAL Team 6 has become the poster girl for a Pentagon effort to include transgenders — people who have undergone sex-change operations — in the ranks.

Kristin Beck, formerly Senior Chief Petty Officer Christopher Beck, spoke recently at several high-profile events at intelligence agencies and the Pentagon to promote the integration of transgenders.

“Transgender service in the armed forces, yes it will happen soon,” she said on Twitter.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, among the most politically correct Pentagon chiefs of the past several decades, fueled the effort within the Pentagon to integrate transgenders in May when he said the policy of banning transgenders should be reviewed continually. The transgender drive is the latest element of the Obama administration’s social engineering within the U.S. military.

… Among Ms. Beck’s recent appearances were speeches at the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Reconnaissance Office and at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, according to the DIA and her Twitter feed.

She also was scheduled to speak to the Multicultural Heritage Committee at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska, although one defense official said it is not clear how transgenderism fits within the multicultural spectrum.

Well, it just does.

Ms. Beck, author of “Warrior Princess,” spoke to the DIA on June 18 as part of the intelligence agency’s annual Pride Month — formerly Gay Pride Month but now expanded to include a host of sexually related terms, including transgenders.

I had not known that: the term “gay pride” is increasingly considered transphobic. Soon, nobody will be allowed to hold a Gay Pride Parade, just a Pride Parade.

Indeed, if you go to Wikipedia and try to look up “gay pride parade,” you will be automatically redirected to “pride parade:”

Pride parade
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Gay pride parade)

Pride parades (also known as pride marches, pride events, and pride festivals) for the LGBT community are events celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) culture and pride.

That’s an interesting change. I can’t find anything online yet that explicitly spells out the term “gay pride” is officially transphobic, but even homosexuals are starting to act leery of the hyper-aggressive TransPower.

A likely side effect of this upcoming replacement of the phrase “gay pride” with just plain “pride” is that therefore, in the long run, the LGBT movement will imperialize the word “pride” as overwhelmingly as it has the word “gay.” The word “pride” in all contexts will become inextricably associated in your head with pictures of men in silver lame gowns riding dildo-shaped floats.

Remember that Gary Cooper biopic about doomed ballplayer Lou Gehrig, Pride of the Yankees, in which, dying from Lou Gehrig’s Disease, he declares himself “the luckiest man on the face of the Earth”? Well, future generations will be surprised to be told Lou wasn’t wearing a dress when he made that speech. “What other kind of ‘pride’ is there?” they will wonder with blank looks on their faces.

She received an award from DIA Director Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn at the event.

According to DIA’s newsletter, Ms. Beck, in her remarks, pushed for allowing transgenders in uniform. She said the Pentagon should stop defining people by external appearances and accept what they say they are on the inside.

“We are all, all of us, created equal, and we all deserve equal justice,” she said, explaining how she hid her true sexual identity during her military career.

Because Beck always felt like a girl on the inside …

This reminds me of how World War T serves powerful men like the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Michael Flynn. It helps explain why elites are jumping on board so aggressively: T stands for Token.

To get out ahead of the Diversity Sensitivity curve, without having to even learn any new small talk, Gen. Flynn just has to give an award to a Navy SEAL. Granted, Beck is a SEAL in a dress, but, mentally, Beck is the same hyper-aggressive individual as always.

    Damn, I just don’t know a girl (and I am one) who ever wanted to be a member of the Seals nor did I ever know one who could have passed the rigorous physical demands of becoming one.

    All transgenders, before being allowed entry into the service, should have to sign an agreement bequeathing their brains to science upon their deaths.

  2. Isn’t WWT how the diversity & inclusion movement will ultimately self-destruct? Just thinking back to your recent post about Facebook’s paucity of women & NAMs, adopting a trans identity seems like the logical way for aggressive and shrewd white men to lean in & elbow aside women on the corporate diversity ladder. Once women realize this, they’ll pushback, but won’t this topple the whole edifice?

    Woah, when you google “gay pride parade” you get this big, rainbow banner pop up on the very top of your browser’s window.

    “Indeed, if you go to Wikipedia and try to look up “gay pride parade,” you will be automatically redirected to “pride parade:””

    I also tried “pride parade” and i get the same thing.

    Steve, you’re one step ahead.

  5. So did the VA pay for the sex change? VA benefits are becoming a means of enabling deviant lifestyles, much like welfare.

    Although Manning is apparently a confirmed T I have no idea about Snowman’s status as an L.

    So did the VA pay for the sex change? VA

  6. Gay — because they are miserable
    Pride — because they are ashamed

  7. Soon, nobody will be allowed to hold a Gay Pride Parade, …

    Super!

    … just a Pride Parade.

    Ups! Ich habe mich zu früh gefreut.

  8. “The word “pride” in all contexts will become inextricably associated in your head with pictures of men in silver lame gowns riding dildo-shaped floats.”

    Yeah, I think that has already happened. I have to double-check when I see the word now used in its traditional meaning.

    Transsexualism is interesting in how it catapults aggressive middle aged straight white heterosexual men back on top of the cultural Marxist totem pole of status. Don Draper is suddenly king again, he just has to wear a dress – which can be a metaphorical dress. Basically all it takes is for a man to declare “I’m a woman”, and they’ve pressed the I Win button.

    “adopting a trans identity seems like the logical way for aggressive and shrewd white men to lean in & elbow aside women on the corporate diversity ladder. Once women realize this, they’ll pushback, but won’t this topple the whole edifice?”

    I don’t think so – women have always been at the very bottom of the cultural Marxist totem pole/ladder of victimhood status. For nasty men who want to be nasty to women, claiming they are women too has long worked really well, and I don’t see that changing. I think we’re going to see transgenders on top for quite a while. The very absurdity of their claims makes them particularly useful to the Powers That Be, because transgenders’ claims are so obviously false that acceding to them is inherently humiliating to anyone with any respect for the truth. Once you can get people to write 2+2=5 you have a special kind of power over them.

  10. My “little black dress” of shorthand commentary. We are a fundamentally unserious people. Perhaps I should amend that to read that we are an increasingly unserious people, but that is, fundamentally, depressing.

  11. World War T can solve many problems regarding diversity

    If your corporation does not have enough women in top management just have half of them declare that they are pre-op transsexual women. The same with the military, sports teams, political parties, etc.

    And once you can just declare yourself to be a woman or a man then a blond, blue eyed guy can declare himself to be a black, gay, women.

  12. Another good example of the manipulation of language is the meteoric rise of the “gender,” which properly refers to grammatical classification: http://www.returnofkings.com/22447/the-one-word-a-man-should-never-use

  13. The late Richard Speck, who raped and murdered eight student nurses in 1966, claimed he was transgender while in prison and actually managed to grow a set of breasts with smuggled-in hormones.

    There’s a torture-rapist convict named Richard Masbruch who performed a penectomy on himself, claimed to be transgender, and managed to be transferred to a women’s prison where she reportedly raped her fellow inmates with foreign objects.

    In Toronto there was a recent case of a serial rapist and self-identified T named Christopher “Jessica” Hambrock, who was allowed to use women’s shelters because he identified as a woman, and Canada’s “Toby’s Law” states “Any man who claims to be a transgender woman has the legal right to use women-only facilities with impunity.” Hambrock assaulted women in the shelters.

  14. The wikipedia article title was changed in 2008, if you’re curious.

    This claim for you guys that crossdressers are just straight men who want to get laid is so incredibly lame. Crossdressers for the most part find women sexually repulsive. The vast majority are completely homossexual in orientation. And yes, a man can be a homosexual and masculine simultaneously. Alexander the Great, Sulla, Solon and Abraham Lincoln are all examples of masculine men who were homosexuals. There were plenty of others who, although not exclusively homosexuals, had sex with men. Richard Lionhearted, Ataturk and others were bisexuals. How “masculine” are all those extremely heterosexual white men who work in cubicles at their Jobs sitting in front of a desk all day? How are they more masculine warriors like Sulla and Richard Lionhearted?

    You conservatives are some of the dumbest people on the planet. All you have are lame excuses to explain facts that dont fit your stupid theories of why things are the way they are.

    What will happen when we have artificial intelligence?

    Or if we revive neanderthals through genetic cloning?

  17. And even further into oblivion goes the very useful concept of “pride” as vice. In the future we’ll recall the Six Deadly Sins.

  18. “You conservatives are some of the dumbest people on the planet. All you have are lame excuses to explain facts that dont fit your stupid theories of why things are the way they are.”

    And you sodomites are angry that God and 99% of all mankind are disgusted by your behaviors, and that 99% includes many sodomites themselves.

  19. “Google’s diversity compromise …”

    Nice video. My conservative yet international midwestern-based company has no popped for an LGBT group. They put up a poster looking for “allies” to acts as sorta PFLAGgers (or more accurately PFLGBTers, now, I guess).

    So I started thinking. I am maybe 8 years out from retirement, a white guy, happily married. A little added job security would be a nice thing. So I have been considering joining the group as a “bisexual”. It gives my department an extra minority “bean count”.

    I am married, so I don’t have to hang out, party or fornicate with guys. I don’t have to proselytize for faggotry or anything like that. No peeing on guys in gay bars. No semen-stained leather.

    I just have to sign up for the group.

    Can anyone tell me how this works out with HR? The HR girls who have been flooding my company as the old timers retire are all eager beavers for this stuff. But do they report it to the EEOC or anything as an additional minority “bean”? I live in Illinois.

    Any HR folks out there have some pointers? Any folks see a downside? I really can’t at this point. Maybe four meetings a year, something like that, and I get a cheap lefty cultural “immunization” what with the second phase of the recession coming later this year.

  20. And yes, a man can be a homosexual and masculine simultaneously. Alexander the Great, … and Abraham Lincoln are all examples of masculine men who were homosexuals.

    Really? Not even wikipedia goes that far in their descriptions of those two. If they were still alive, they’d sue you.

  21. Y’all laughed at me when I wrote it years ago, but I’ll say it again: all you straight dudes declare yourself to be a “bull dyke, pre-conversion, lesbian transsexual.

    Actually, make that “anti-conversion”. If you want to be girl but you still want to keep your penis it makes you even MORE oppressed.

    You get to keep chasing women, keep and wear all your current clothes, keep grabbing your crotch, keep watching football, drinking beer and not cleaning the house yet STILL be a double- or triple-oppressed minority: trans, queer, and anti-conversion.

    What’s not to like?

  22. Some day school children will be insulting each other with the taunt: “That’s so proud!”.

  23. Nicky is a troll. No one is that stupid. He’s playing us for laughs, and then retreating to his HBD Lair.

    “And yes, a man can be a homosexual and masculine simultaneously. ”

    This was true of Sparta. But Sparta was really more like a prison-rape society than a truly mass homo society. As even non-homo kids(most young Spartans) had to be ‘sexually’ apprenticed by older warriors(most of whom were natural heteros than homos), it was more like hetero-prison-rape culture than genuine homo culture.

    A machomo is a real pain in the ass.

  25. “And yes, a man can be a homosexual and masculine simultaneously. ”

    Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, and Clint Eastwood are all gay according to this interview on the National Lampoon Radio Hour.

  26. “This claim for you guys that crossdressers are just straight men who want to get laid is so incredibly lame. Crossdressers for the most part find women sexually repulsive. The vast majority are completely homossexual in orientation.”

    Nick, attentive readers of iSteve are way ahead of you. Cross-dressers and transsexuals come in two main types: (1) highly effeminate homosexuals who adopt this behaviour or identity because it makes them feel more attractive to men, and (2) non-effeminate men, often originally heterosexual in identity, who develop a fetish around female bodies, to the point of wanting to inhabit one. They’re quite different phenomena. Unsurprisingly, many of the more in-your-face trans men are from the latter group, because they are wired to be pushier. Neither group really resembles women psychologically.

    Anyway, more intellectual modesty would become you.

  27. “Woah, when you google “gay pride parade” you get this big, rainbow banner pop up on the very top of your browser’s window.”

    Yeah, for mobile too, although if you Google “white pride” there is a white banner across the top too, so who knows?

  28. Nick Diaz:
    “This claim for you guys that crossdressers are just straight men who want to get laid is so incredibly lame. Crossdressers for the most part find women sexually repulsive…”

    Funny trolling, or you are genuinely confused – a “crossdresser”, such as a drag queen, is not a “transsexual”.

  29. The Globe and Mail has not got the message. They are still running stories on “The Truth About Being Gay On Bay Street” instead of “The Truth About Being Transgendered On Bay Street.”

  30. I rememeber back in the day when Steve’s one eloquent adversary was a t guy, I think.

  31. “ChrisB says:

    Anyway, more intellectual modesty would become you.”

    Indeed. Intellectually, Nick Diaz has much to be modest about.

  32. Honest question; would Ms. Beck have been able to do the job of a SEAL if she had transitioned at, say, the age of sixteen? Or immediately after joining the Navy? Would a male body subjected to years of female hormone therapy and cosmetic surgeries been capable of passing Selection?

    Or was she effective as a SEAL because she had a properly functional male physiology?

    The military’s not about what you want, as an individual. It’s about what’s good for the mission. Has anybody advocating for transsexual integration thought this through?
