Are we nuts? Transgender sports and mass formation psychosis

Ten years from now, will biological men still participate in women's sports? I don't think so. 

In fact, the people who are advocating now for allowing transgender women to compete against real women in varsity sports will be embarrassed by their stance and will try to scrub this bizarre episode in our national psyche from social media archives. 

Kinda like Senator Elizabeth Warren downplaying references to her Cherokee heritage. Or President Nixon's henchmen who had "no present recollection" of Watergate.

Are we nuts? Isn't anyone embarrassed by the sight of a transgender shot putter competing against school girls at a middle-school athletic event? 

How do we explain the nation's descent into monumental foolishness? Robert Malone, a medical doctor, posited the term "mass formation psychosis" for outbreaks of national craziness. This is how he defined the phenomenon:

When you have a society that has become decoupled from each other and has free-floating anxiety in a sense that things don’t make sense, we can’t understand it, and then their attention gets focused by a leader or series of events on one small point just like hypnosis, they literally become hypnotized and can be led anywhere.

Malone's theory has not been accepted in medical literature, and the term "mass formation psychosis" is not a recognized psychiatric diagnosis. Nevertheless, his hypothesis makes a great deal of sense.

Otherwise, how can you explain federal bureaucrats' position that Title IX legislation,  adopted by Congress to stop discrimination against women and girls at schools and colleges,  gives biological males the right to compete against real women in varsity athletic contests?

I think today's transgender madness will one day be looked upon as some sort of societal disorder, much like the Ku Klux Klan era when otherwise sensible businessmen thought it made sense to dress up in hoods and white robes and bully Blacks and Catholics. Even Hugo Black, who later became a Supreme Court justice, bought into that nonsense.

Here's my advice to school superintendents, college presidents, and varsity coaches. Don't put yourselves on the public record as a supporter of the nation's transgender mania because someday you will have to apologize to your granddaughters.
