Pay Attention To What People Do

You have probably heard the old expression that one should pay attention to what people do and not to what they say.  That is a good maxim if we are to understand human behavior.  Human beings say lots of things that mean absolutely nothing.  In fact, the only thing that really matters is what we do.  The disconnect between what we say and what we do exists for a reason.  People want to project a public image of being one way while, at the same time, they want to behave in a way that is contrary to that public image but consistent with their true beliefs.  That type of behavior has historically been called hypocrisy and it dominates human behavior.  Rare indeed is the person who will do what he says he will do.
McDonalds is a case in point.  Almost everyone I know likes to bad-mouth McDonalds.  They love to tell me that McDonalds produces junk food and they don't eat junk.  They love to tell me that they stay away from saturated fats and eat only foods generally deemed by the Welsh as fit only for rabbits and small birds.  I once had a young girl lecture me on why I should not eat at McDonalds. She told me the story she had learned at government school about how one person ate only at McDonalds for a year and became horrendously fat as a result of doing so.  When I asked her if she had heard the other story about how another man ate only at McDonalds for a full year and ended up losing weight and she called me a liar.  She is well on her way to ignorance and worship of the Beast.
I go to McDonalds a lot and one thing I can tell you for sure is I am not the only one patronizing the store.  I can go there anytime of the day or night and the drive-thru line will be backed up all the way around the building.  If I go inside I will have to stand in line prior to being served.  So what is my point?  My point is that people bow to peer pressure and claim to be one way while, at the same time, behave in the opposite fashion.  It is fashionable to say bad things about McDonalds but when in the privacy of their own cars the people who profess to hate McDonalds will be seen ordering a Quarter Pounder in the drive-thru lane later that day.
Bruce Jenner is a gender-fluid person who was born a man and now claims to be a woman.  He rose to fame initially as a gold medalist in the decathlon.  Later on he decided he liked wearing women's clothing so he changed his name to Caitlyn and became a woman.  Good for him/her/it.
I consider Bruce, as his friends like to call him, to be a pervert.  I believe Bruce will burn forever in the Lake of Fire if he does not repent of his sexual perversion.  I am in a distinct minority when I say that transgenderism is a perversion that will be judged by God and should be judged by the law of the land.  The vast majority of the citizens within the Socialist Democracy of Amerika profess to believe that transgenderism is just dandy and people like me are Neanderthals who need to be silenced of our hate speech.  I have often wondered if most people really believe what they say.  Now I have evidence that, on this issue at least, they predictably do not.
Here is part of a story I read in the newspaper late last week, "A year after Caitlyn Jenner announced her new name and gender, the popularity of the name Caitlyn plummeted more than any other baby name, according to Social Security's annual list of the most popular baby names.  In fact, the four names that dropped the most were all variations of the same name....all four versions of Caitlyn fell out of the top 1,000."  So here is my question.  If most folks believe Bruce is a heroic figure and a role model for society, why do the great majority of Amerikans make the voluntary decision to not name their children after his gender-fluid moniker?
I will answer my own question.  Most citizens of this country are intrigued by Bruce like they are intrigued by side show freaks at carnivals.  Most folks also believe what they are told by the popular media so when queried about their personal thoughts about Bruce they declare him to be a hero.  But when they are in the privacy of their own homes and choosing a name for their child the last thing they are going to do is name her after a sexual pervert.  That tells me all I need to know. When it comes to acceptance for gender-fluidity I have a lot of people on my side, regardless of what they say.
