What is worse than settlers who take their children to a dangerous hill at the end of the world and dictate to them a compulsive ideological way? You know, the ones who take pride in their offspring when they are interviewed for the news and say "it's good to die for our country," or just wash their minds that there's nothing like a canopy and a 12th grade wedding?
It's not a backup, it's a catch. Rina Nudelman at the Jerusalem Pride Rally // Screenshot: From YouTube
This week I found out: Parents who nurture their child with transgender ambition, push him to declare his sexual tendencies in the city square and turn him into a colorful flag for a merchant. You know, some who imprison their child in an extreme worldview at an age when he no longer has the tools to choose a declared ideology that might not dream of his wishes in the future.
What will happen to cute, smart 10-year-old Rina Nodelman, if, at age 17, she changes? That too can happen. But Rina will look at the showcase in the family home living room, feel the pride trophies she received in squares across the country and the world; Browse through the hundreds of newspapers she interviews about that difficult year in kindergarten when she realized that there were more white and less white equals; She will watch the campaigns she has received and will remember the waves of sympathy that enveloped her as the first child in Israel who was already in Kadima Primary School queuing for sex change surgery; Rina will see everything and be disappointed. She's so deep in that image and that publicity that getting out of the closet again is too much.
It is important to give the child a back up, certainly if he faces such a deep and difficult dilemma, but from here to encourage him to become a public icon the long way. In this case, it's not a backup, it's a catch. When my kids tell me "I don't believe in God / I prefer Chabad prayers / I'll be a mercenary in America when I grow up" (I didn't invent anything), I definitely take that seriously and try to give them a healthy space to choose. But don't report it on Facebook and even Try not to gossip with companies to keep the space clean for them.
Rina felt things she still couldn't name, and her parents had already pushed her into a public career. We, as parents, as a media and as a society, need to protect this girl. But it is an item and difficult to resist.
The left and its trespassers are breaking boundaries that even the far-right has not gone through its hard times: Encouraging a 9-year-old secular to end with her trans tendencies and moving around with this message in the world, is like encouraging a 9-year-old settler to establish a settlement in the East Jordan and close exclusive interviews on it. There is no settler newspaper that will cooperate with such a political tendency that calls for abuse and distance from a documentary. True, it is illegal to establish a settlement in the Jordan Valley as well as legal to trot your stomach to the brim, but how does Brigadier General Amir make sense? The judicial system is not something.
And another personal word to Rina. In fact, to her parents: The only difficult thing about being a man is to make an army, and that is especially difficult for your mother. In contrast, what is worse than being a woman? Maybe just be old in the USSR whose kids live abroad. A woman will forever be central to what's happening at home, even when she has a career outside; She earns less; She spends time and money on hair plucking; Woman suffers from migraines; A woman suffers from menstruation; She's a lifelong diet; A woman will be the last to clean and care for the children even if the father has long since left; A woman suffers because she was programmed that way, to suffer. The only thing a woman appreciates for good in Israeli society is the amount of her womb use. How does the repulsive advertisement say to the capital? Say thank you for being a man and have a drink.
Rina, Libby with you.For more views of Moria Corr
