Trans-racial: when genes don’t matter

The term originates from adoptive and academic circles to describe the very lived experience of children raised in homes that are phenotypically and culturally different from their birth.

Most recently, and thanks mostly to Rachel Dolezal, the term transracial has been changed to mean ‘people who claim to have a racial identity that differs from their birth race’. Apparently genetics no longer matter. In the case of Miss Dolezal, she was born Caucasian from Caucasian parents, but grew up with black siblings. Specifically, transracial would apply to them.

A Trans-reflection

The word ‘trans’ is a Latin prefix meaning simply “across”, “beyond”, “through,”  “changing throughly,” “transverse”.

Up until some ten years or so ago, the term ‘trans’ was mainly associated with transport, geography and chemistry. Back then, we only encountered it in expressions related to unhealthy foods such as trans-fat or trans-food.

But we have come a long way since those days. Progress progresses and the wheels of Chronos keep turning. Another turn, another gear that moves and clicks into place. Another decade gone. Another non-binary push. Another NWO move to normalize everything that goes against nature. Another push into their wet-dream of a genderless agenda of hyper-sexualized individuals.
