Anyone who has been keeping up with the current wacky trends in both politics and culture knows just how much modern day leftists love identity politics. Which is ironic given the fact that Democrats are supposed to be the party of inclusivity.
But, did you guys know that the left is also a huge, ginormous fan of GENDER politics? I can somewhat sense your skepticism about what I’m prattling on about, but trust me, if you just stick with me for the rest of the piece, you’ll understand what I mean.
Gender politics is when a group of people develop political positions based on the interests and perspectives of a particular social group, like oh, say, transgender folk for example.
It seems most gender politics comes out of the land of fruits and nuts — that’s California for those not in the know. The state is looking to start tossing some folks in prison for not addressing trans people according to their chosen pronouns.
I know, nutty, right? Well, it’s apparently about to get even worse, as California is determined to be the king when it comes to pure and utter liberal nonsense.
Cali is soon to add a third “X” gender option on identification cards. You know, for those “gender fluid” or “gender non-binary” individuals who make up an almost infinitesimally small portion of the population.
From The Miami Herald:
The California Senate has already passed SB179, which would introduce a third gender option for state identification. Currently, driver’s licenses and other forms of official identification only contain options for male or female. The bill would allow a third option, which would likely be ‘X,’ according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Here’s a few more details via The Daily Wire:
Currently in the deep blue state, folks who surgically transition to the opposite gender can switch their gender to “F” or “M” on state IDs accordingly. The new bill, if it were to become law, would allow non-binary, gender fluid, and pre-op transgender individuals to opt for the “X” gender.
Self-identified transgender and non-binary Jo Michael of Equality California “said identification that reflects their gender identity will allow transgender people to more fully participate in society,” according to the Herald.
“It’s liberating to be able to say, ‘Yes, this is who I am,’ and, ‘Yes, my state documentation matches that,’” a self-styled “gender fluid” fluid person named Dee Shull told The San Francisco Chronicle.
Left-wing Oregon already has a third “X” gender option available for their residents; a reported 20,000 Oregonians identify as “trans.”
Right now, according to the LGBTQ community — they just keep adding letters to that acronym, don’t they? — there are 63 genders, and it’s likely they won’t rest until they have all of them, no matter how weird or nonsensical, added to ID cards across the country.
This, of course, poses quite a few problems, particularly for law enforcement officers who might need to identify a suspect or witness they are looking for in connection with a crime.
If a cop is about to put out an APB, he or she — ONLY he or she — is going to have to give a description of the individual they are searching for. How can we, the citizens of the city, know for sure who we are looking for when keeping an eye out for suspicious characters, if the person is identified as “gender non-binary?”
You can’t. It doesn’t make logical sense. You know why it doesn’t make logical sense? Because there are only two biological genders a person can be, and that’s just the nature of the beast, like it or not. You cannot be anything other than a male or female. Your DNA makes you one or the other.
Now, I’m not trying to insult people who suffer with mental illness related to gender dysphoria. Not at all. That’s a serious, serious issue and nothing to be laughed at, mocked, or anything else.
No, I’m aiming my pointed comments toward the mentally healthy in our nation who have been encouraging others to indulge their mental illness and find ways to enable behavior that is not healthy for the individual.
The overwhelming majority of liberals pushing for laws like the one discussed above are doing so because they mistakenly think that mankind can just make up whatever laws and rules he wants, even though there are objective standards of not only right and wrong, but of reality itself that say otherwise.
When mankind thinks he — or she — can make up their own laws, can live their own way, folks engage in all sorts of self-destructive behaviors, like sex-change hormone therapy and surgeries, with the majority regretting their decision to do so not long afterward.
We as a society need to stop supporting this stuff, to stop enabling those who have real issues to indulge in a delusion rather than get treatment they need to accept themselves as they are.
If we don’t, when this all implodes, and you can guarantee it will at some point, the blame will lay on our shoulders as a society.
