The New York Times is apoplectic – again.
But this time, it’s because of something so scary to the left, so unimaginably horrific, so brutally honest, so politically incorrect – an act of courage so profound by President Trump – that it could possibly save the country from ruin.
Either that, or we might want to consider the possibility of two separate countries dividing things up and going our own ways as, well … not quite friends.
The New York Times headline says it all – and the news and political earthquake it is setting off is likely to have plenty of seismic aftershocks on the Richter scale:
That’s what it said. Do I need to say more?
America, not to mention other mostly Western countries as well, has been slipping into the moral and rational cesspool for too long. Much of it transpired in the eight-year reign of Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama.
It was during Obama’s time in office that he himself went from publicly opposing “gay marriage” to publicly shaming opposition to it – in fact, to leading the U.S. Supreme Court into embracing it, despite outspoken opposition to same-sex marriage not that long ago from Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and other Democrat leaders.
It was during that time that Obama became a zealot for “trans-mania.”
He virtually made it illegal for women to compete only against women in sports, violating millennia of tradition and basic common sense.
Does anyone even realize the way “feminism” and “trans-mania” are now increasingly in mortal conflict? Do we even realize how oppressive this is for women athletes?
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law.
A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing gender largely as an individual’s choice and not determined by the sex assigned at birth. The policy prompted fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple concept. Conservatives, especially evangelical Christians, were incensed.
Now the Department of Health and Human Services is spearheading an effort to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans gender discrimination in education programs that receive government financial assistance, according to a memo obtained by The New York Times.
The department argued in its memo that key government agencies needed to adopt an explicit and uniform definition of gender as determined “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.” The agency’s proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to a draft reviewed by The Times. Any dispute about one’s sex would have to be clarified using genetic testing.
To the Left and the New York Times, an ever-expanding number of “genders” is “progress.” It is “liberation.” There’s always a new bridgehead to be found. Once the Left stops inventing “human rights,” new threats to humanity, new ways to defy God, new ways to imprison ourselves in our sin, it’s done, it’s toast – and there are no more drag queens in libraries and public pre-schools to conjure.
