Writing at American Thinker, Amy Contrada gets it exactly right — “Those ideas don’t deserve that respect”:
The transgender war on cultural norms is not just about restrooms and pronouns. It’s about denying biological fact and quotidian reality. It’s about an epidemic of irrationality, a cultural contagion, a mass delusion claiming more victims every day. It’s about silencing free thinkers who refuse to bow to the radical “gender” ideology.
Absurd theories that deny scientific fact have been adopted by the mainstream press, the entertainment industry, the medical establishment, public schools, universities, corporate management, and government agencies. People who fear social isolation and charges of bigotry are following along.
How do those of us still grounded in reality fight this insanity? Not with misguided “compassion” or compromise, but with straight talk and tough love. Let’s not waste our time analyzing or answering absurd gender theories with logical rebuttals. Those ideas don’t deserve that respect. And the useful idiots who swallow the trans lies — whether as promoters, allies, or victims — will not listen to reason or science.
Oppose trans activism
Refuse to go along with trans madness that declares:
- “Sex is assigned at birth” by doctors.
- Gender identity is inborn.
- A three-year-old can know he’s “trapped in the wrong body.”
- Some girls have penises; some boys have vaginas.
- Blocking puberty in pre-adolescent children is sound medical practice.
- A man can gestate and birth a baby.
- Gender stereotypes are bad (unless you adopt one as your “authentic” trans identity).
- A person’s choice of new name and pronouns must be respected.
- A person determines his appropriate restroom, locker room, sports team, etc.
- “Transgender” persons’ feelings take precedence over everyone else’s.
Recognize only biological sex classifications: male and female.
Avoid using the politically loaded word “gender.”
Point out that there is no biological basis for transgenderism. Someone cannot be “trapped in the wrong body.” We’re all in the bodies we were meant to be in.
