CNN celebrated mental illness, bodily mutilation, and child mental abuse for Father’s Day. No…seriously.

This is a headline that they actually wrote: He gave birth. He breastfed. Now, he wants his son to see him as a man. Hank Berrien at the Daily Wire has the story so you don’t have to click through to CNN:
The “he” in question is Sabastion Sparks, 24, “a transgender man who lives with his wife Angel in suburban Atlanta.”
CNN writes, “Like many new dads, Sabastion Sparks knew parenting would come with serious challenges. But most new dads didn’t give birth to their child. They didn’t breastfeed them.”
That’s certainly true.
CNN writes that Sparks “wants Jaxen, their 20-month-old son, to have as normal a childhood as possible,” suggesting that a more “comfortable” Sparks can now better provide that normal childhood.
“I’m going to be a better father being comfortable in myself and him seeing that confidence in me,” said Sparks.
Sparks wants to teach Jaxen how to pee standing up, which Sparks executes with the help of a detachable prosthetic. “The more my body resembles his, the better he’ll understand,” said Sparks.
Sparks met Angel, 33, five years ago. As CNN notes, Angel “was designated male at birth but had transitioned years earlier.”
More: “Like many transgender men and women, they had been taking medication to increase the testosterone or estrogen in their bodies. So to make a baby, they briefly stopped taking their hormone pills. The couple conceived their son the conventional way…”
Here’s the message from their condescending ad:
“This is an apple. Some people might try and tell you that it’s a banana,” the ad copy reads. “They might scream banana, banana, banana over and over and over again. They might put BANANA in all caps. You might even start to believe that this is a banana. But it’s not. This is an apple.”
Imagine this as it pertains to their Father’s Day story.
“This is a woman. Some people might try and tell you that it’s a man,” the ad copy might read. “They might scream “I’m a man,” “I’m a man,” “I’m a man,” over and over and over again. They might put MAN in all caps. You might even start to believe that this is a man. But it’s not. This is a woman.”
But they don’t see their own blatant hypocrisy. It’s not good these sorts of things go on. People are free to do what they will. That’s their right, I suppose. (Though people surgically “removing” their breasts, and their genitals is inherently wrong.)
But CNN celebrating and promoting this sort of bodily mutilation, while trying to maintain the “higher ground” on issues that relate to “facts?”
That’s down right evil.
