This idea that men can become women, women can become men, reminds me of the 1970 song, ‘Lola’ from the Kinks. The Christian Post, on Monday, January 2nd., published this article, “Man in prison for murdering his parents identifies as female under Maines gender ID policy.”
A man sentenced to 40 years in prison for murdering his parents and stabbing his dog to death has claimed a trans identity and is now listed as a female by the Maine Department of Corrections.
The 24-year-old inmate, Andrew T. Balcer, was initially listed as male as recently as September, according to archived records from the MDOC website. However, updated records identify Balcer as female and include a new photo of him with long, black hair in a side ponytail under the name Andrea.
A policy implemented by MDOC Commissioner Randell Liberty in 2020 requires Maine correctional facilities to provide inmates with clothing that aligns with their chosen gender identity, including chest binders and push-up bras, according to The Maine Wire. It remains unclear if the facility housing Balcer provided him with women’s undergarments.
The MDOC did not immediately respond to The Christian Post’s request for comment about the inmate’s status and whether he has also been transferred to a women’s prison.
National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, centrally based in Harrison, Arkansas, Thomas Robb said, “I remember a song from the 70’s called ‘Lola’, by a band called the Kinks. For the time, it was a really twisted song, with one lyric saying, ‘Girls will boys, and boys will be girls, it’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world, except for Lola. Lo-Lo-Lo-Lo Lola’. That song was very upsetting. 53 years later, here we are living within that song! What’s next? Say maybe a bank robber named Paul, robs a bank. The bank will have security footage of Paul robbing the bank. Also, Paul left fingerprints at the scene, so he’s been identified by the police. Now when the police go to Paul’s house, and they break down the door, and there sets Paul wearing a dress and he says his name is Paula now, and he can’t be responsible for what Paul did, because Paul is now his ‘dead’ name, will he be innocent? This scenerio sounds totally ridiculous, but so was the song ‘Loya’ 53 years ago. Where does it end?”
