The transgender memo by former (yes!) Pres. Obama is one of the most insidious pieces of insane pressure politics I’ve seen, and that’s saying a lot. It was meant to be insane. How can someone claim that the way a person feels, believes, or chooses about his or her sexual identity should be a fundamental right forced on everyone? It’s pure fiction. And that’s the point.
There isn’t the slightest bit of science attached to transgenderism. The same is true of the created sexual category called “homosexuals.” Transgenderism is based on feelings and same-sex sexuality is based on sexual behavioral choices, not biology. It’s that simple and purposeful; there is a larger logic going on to promote the irrational as rational.
If people want to choose 1 or more of the 50 or more constructed sexual identities that the folks at Facebook have created, they are free to do so. Anyone can choose to be irrational. I’m not going to stop them. But what they aren’t free to do is force you or me to accept their irrational choices.
Gender fluidity is no more real than the fluidity of set concrete. If something is fluid, it doesn’t have staying power or “fixity.” I can’t be a man one day and then feel like I’m a woman the next day and then claim that I should have access to a woman’s restroom or use the force of law to get a tryout with a girl’s college basketball team as one man did. It’s irrational to think otherwise, but the courts have ruled otherwise. Four is really five.
And that’s the law’s purpose.
The larger agenda here is to force irrational conformity on us so that in time we will accept anything and everything the State and its supportive agencies propose and force into law. It starts with small irrational stuff and leads to really big stuff, like justifying murdering millions of Jews for the greater good. Or convincing women that killing their unborn children is a fundamental right and a good and essential moral choice.
