So goes the logic over at the Obama administration, where the federal government has now mandated that high school girls be forced to change and shower in their locker rooms next to mentally ill biological boys who think they’re girls. On Monday, the federal government ruled that a Chicago high school could no longer merely allow a transgender girl, complete with penis and testicles, into the girls’ locker room: they had to allow him to change, shower, and do all the other activities the girls do with the girls present.
The school had attempted to accommodate the gender dysphoric youngster by allowing him into the girls’ room but telling him to change behind a curtain. That was not enough, according to the feds. Said Department of Education Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon, “All students deserve the opportunity to participate equally in school programs and activities – this is a basic civil right. Unfortunately, Township High School District 211 is not following the law because the district continues to deny a female student the right to use the girls’ locker room.”
The “female student” is not female. He has all his boy parts, and every cell in his body except for some of his sperm cells has a Y chromosome.
But we’re through the looking glass. So far through the looking glass that the federal government invoked Title IX of the Civil Rights Act, a provision designed to protect women from sexism. Now, Title IX forces underage girls to be exposed to the penises of young men who think they’re girls. It’s one thing for high school boys and girls to play doctor with one another – that could be child pornography, according to federal law. But if the federal government says that a 15-year-old girl has to stare at the penis of a 15-year-old boy who calls himself a girl, well by God, that’s the boy’s Constitutional right. Feminism requires such equality!
If only Bill Clinton had thought of this gimmick, Juannita Broaddrick wouldn’t have had anything to complain about.
The left insists that Republicans are fighting a war on women. But the so-called Republican “war on women” merely consists of conservatives telling women to stop murdering unborn children. The leftist war on women consists of leftists informing women that they don’t exist, that anyone who thinks he or she is a woman is indeed a woman, and that biological women should be forced to undress and shower in front of and with biological men so long as those men think they’re women. The leftist war on women is a war of definitional annihilation.
The word “woman” is the left’s latest linguistic casualty. We’ve already done away with “children cannot consent,” since a child cannot consent to an adult touching his or her genitals according to the left (thank God for that, at least for the moment), but can consent to having his or her hormones tampered with or genitals mutilated by an adult. Now, a woman has been redefined as whatever you think a woman is, even if your definition of a woman includes nothing that objectively connotes femaleness.
But the media insists Republicans are the extremists.
At some point, parents will have to stand up to this insanity. If they don’t, the feds will come after them. We now live in a world where a parent cannot take a child concerned over homosexual feelings to a therapist, but the parent becomes a national hero for mutilating the child’s body for non-cisnormative feelings. How long will it be before those who insist on gender roles in the home become targets of the wise, benevolent federal government?
When are we going to stop some of this stuff?
