she’s an accomplished composer/producer who uses Cubase, and that’s why she’s featured.
@Steve, of course, there are many accomplished composers and producers who would have been overjoyed to be featured in that video. So why was she chosen over the others? Because of her sex and her haircut? Was this an optimal marketing strategy? If not, then why did Steinberg do it?
Anyway, @Steve, regarding your deleted post:
I’m not qualified to comment on your two articles, but they don’t address my concerns anyway. I do realize that perhaps 1 in 200 people suffer from sexual identity confusion, known as gender dysphoria. Whether their dysphoria stems from some prenatal hormonal imbalance or some psychological imbalance, I don’t know, but I empathize with them. Once they reach adulthood, they have a right to undergo sex-change surgery, in my opinion.
However, we should not teach all primary school children that they can be a boy or a girl, depending on how they feel on any given day. That is scientifically wrong. Women can bear children, whereas men cannot. Merely feeling female cannot change a man into a woman. Even genital surgery cannot change a man’s chromosomes, or allow him to bear children. So we should just tell children the facts of life, counsel those who need help, and allow the rest to develop naturally, without interference. Moreover, we should not encourage pre-teens to take opposite-sex hormones, since gender dysphoria at that age tends to disappear over time. Here is a relevant quote:
“Redefining what it means to be a man or woman redefines what it means to be gay. Depending on how they identify, people with male bodies who prefer female sexual partners may regard themselves as either heterosexual men or lesbian women. It also affects women’s political activism, since defining womanhood as based on a feeling rather than anatomy is incompatible with the feminist position that women are oppressed because they are physically weaker than men and bear the entire burden of reproduction. And it affects education: Many schools now tell children that being a boy or girl is not a matter of what it says on their birth certificates, but what they feel like. Since that is a circular definition, lessons quickly degenerate into endorsing sex-stereotypes: If you like trains and trucks, maybe you’re a boy. If you like pink chiffon, a girl. … Though puberty blockers are supposed to buy time, in fact they start a child down a path to irreversible changes. Emerging data suggests that they start a cascade of intervention, with almost every child [who is] given them proceeding to cross-sex hormones. … Those who missed puberty in their own sex will probably be sterile—indeed, sexually functionless.”
