Corey Maison, a 14-year-old resident of Michigan, decided that he wanted to be the daughter his mom never had. His mom, Erica, is reciprocating by becoming the Dad she thinks Corey needs. At least, that appears to be what passes for the logic behind their respective decisions to undergo elective medical mutilation as part of a supposed “transition” to the other sex.
Two years ago, Erica gave her son a surprise birthday present in the form of emasculating hormone treatments, which is the sort of gift that keeps on giving – in the form of an ever-deepening psychosis. In this case, the derangement was of a highly communicable variety, since Erica, claiming to be “inspired” by her son’s “transgender decision,” has decided to follow suit by becoming male. The method she chose was to undergo a double mastectomy and change her name to Eric, which makes exactly as much sense as cutting off a horse’s two front legs and calling it a kangaroo.
As if to confirm the depth of her psychological disturbance, Eric – as she wants to be called – told the Australian version of 60 Minutes that “When I was younger, I used to wish for cancer so I would have to get a mastectomy.”
Her husband Les professes to have no problem with his wife’s decision, observing that he is “still married to the same person I married…. That’s all there is to it.”
This may be the only semi-rational statement made by the family during the interview: No matter what indignity Corey or Erica inflicts on his or her body, each of them remains inescapably a genetic male or female. The true tragedy is that Corey is young enough that he will someday regret his adolescent decision to succumb to a self-destructive social fad.
