I don’t understand why someone who felt all his life that he wanted to be a girl would join the Navy SEALs, knowing this. I guess we are supposed to thank Heaven for small miracles that the preparation for impending transsexual “sex re-assignment” surgery of former Navy SEAL Chris Beck happened AFTER he left the SEALs and not during his service in the elite force. In any event, this is just another story designed to take down America’s fighting forces yet another notch. And it’s another attempt to justify open gays and women in combat in the U.S. military. Make no mistake that this is why “Kristin” Beck is coming out now. Oh, and did I mention that he/she/it is pimping a book about it all? I appreciate his service to the country, but . . . .
A former member of the elite U.S. Navy SEALs has come out to say she’s now a woman. Kristin Beck, formerly Chris, served 20 years as a SEAL and fought on some of the most dangerous battlefields in the world, but after she left the service she realized she wasn’t living the life she wanted.
“Chris really wanted to be a girl and felt that she was a girl and consolidated that identity very early on in childhood,” said Anne Speckhard, co-author of Beck’s biography “Warrior Princess,” which was published over the weekend. Speckhard told ABC News Beck suppressed that secret for decades, however, through the trials of SEAL training and the harrowing missions that followed, growing a burly beard as she fought on the front lines of American special operations.
Brandon Webb, a former SEAL who served on a different SEAL team than Beck, said that Beck’s reputation in the SEALs was a good one and said she was, by all appearances, the “consummate guy’s guy.” But the book says that Chris “had considered living as the woman he felt himself to be for a very long time, but while he was serving as a SEAL he couldn’t do it.”
“For years Chris had turned off his sexuality like a light switch and lived as a warrior, consumed with the battle — living basically asexual. For Chris the other SEALs were brothers and in the man’s man warrior lifestyle, even if he had wanted to entertain sexual thoughts, there really was never any time to be thinking too much about sexuality,” the book says.
After her retirement in 2011, however, “Now seemed the right time to go for it — to make his body match his identity — or at least start by dressing like a woman in his regular life.” Speckhard said Beck first announced her decision to friends online with the declaration “No more disguises” and the book describes her going out to gay bars in Florida as a woman. Beck is currently on hormone therapy in preparation for sexual reassignment surgery and generally wears long hair, make-up and women’s clothes, Speckhard said.
In the book’s Preface, Beck said she wrote the book “to reach out to all of the younger generation and encourage you to live your life fully and to treat each other with compassion, be good to each other, especially in your own backyard (where it be high school or your community).”
The thing is, in America, where anything goes, you can do this kind of crap and pretty much anything else a warped imagination can come up with. When a transsexual Al-Qaeda terrorist announces he’s now a she, THEN it will be news. As will the number of hours his/her life lasts after that.
Since we know that tranny surgery is very expensive, who will be covering Chris/”Kristin’s” upcoming operations? Does a retired Navy SEAL’s health benefits cover this? If so, you’re paying for this.
And as we all know, this “sex reassignment” surgery doesn’t reassign anything. He’ll still have male DNA and can’t ever have bear children.
Reader Ari Mendelson, author of Bias Incident: The World’s Most Politically Incorrect Novel, which, in one scene, deals with the falsehood of sex changes:
I think it wise to have a cultural message that says that we need to learn to live with things we cannot change and come to accept them, even if they are disturbing. It’s certainly a better alternative than not really changing something (in this case, the man’s sex) but pretending you did. That message, incidentally, is very unfashionable these days
Spot on. Ari recommends this video of excellent psychiatric advice from Dr. Switzer, who he says is “the greatest therapist that has ever lived.” I wholeheartedly agree . . .
