The “trans” lobby has been pushing the view that the decisive factor in determining what is “female” has more to do with feelings than biology.
Corporate-controlled press dutifully accommodates and disseminates this view, which has proven to be problematic to many not keen on reversing thousands of years of societal norms for the latest far-left social crusade.
Now, one openly gay Governor’s insults to Republicans who aim to protect women will leave you fuming.
Colorado Governor Jared Polis recently appeared on CNN’s State of the Union where host Dana Bash mischaracterized the Republican position.
Bash said, “there are GOP lawmakers in various states across the country pushing anti-LGBTQ legislation, from the so-called don’t say gay bill in Florida, to a transgender sports ban in South Dakota.”
What Bash calls a “transgender sports ban” isn’t that at all – rather it can be thought more as “protect women in women’s sports” legislation.
A video clip was then played of South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, where she was asked, “There’s a statistic circulating around right now that 90 percent of South Dakota’s LGBTQ community is diagnosed with either anxiety or depression. Why do you think that is?”
In response, Noem said, “I don’t know. That makes me sad, and we should figure it out.”
The false pretense allowed Polis to bloviate on the subject after the setup by Bash, where he said, “Look, words matter. Laws matter. When a group of people, LGBT youth, feel targeted by the words and laws that some politicians espouse, of course, it can increase anxiety, depression. Many of them are already dealing with challenging issues in their own family. The American people as a whole are completely accepting of who people love and how they live their lives, and these hard policies about saying certain youth can’t play sports, and certain people aren’t allowed in certain places, or micromanaging what restroom people use and mandating what they do are really, frankly, un-American and are an example of Republican overreach, which will ultimately hurt their party, if they can’t espouse the full diversity of the American people.”
The bill, which South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem signed into law, doesn’t prevent transgender youth from sports competition and thus isn’t a ban at all.
What the new law stipulates is that athletes are to compete in sports based on their gender assigned at birth, thus not allowing biological males to rack up win after win and break records in women’s sports.
Just as we’ve seen with criminal justice reform and “defund the police” rhetoric, here too the social engineers can’t sell their positions on the merits, so they have to obfuscate and mislead.
Polling isn’t very favorable to the far-left these days, so the hope is that the public sees these political games for what they are.
