Remedial Science for Democrats

The “transgender” movement (and Biden’s order) comes at the expense of women.

President Joe Biden is steadily flicking the pen as he drafts dozens of executive orders, including a transgender policy that would create further division among the American people. The new administration recently made its move to advance the “LGBT+” agenda with a policy that would permit “transgender” girls (read: biological boys) to participate in girls’ sports. Democrats — the same party that demands that we all “trust the science” — are in full, unanimous support of this motion. As if they received the same memo, each progressive liberal I meet echoes the same words: “Transgender women are women.”

Not only do these people never cite a single study suggesting this notion to be true, but they act completely oblivious to what we all learned about human biology. Everyone — and I mean everyone — learned that sexual beings are those possessing only two genders, male and female. (Perhaps some folks fell asleep in science class?) But because the TV and mainstream media say “transgender women are women,” otherwise rational adults are willing to throw actual biology out the window — all in the name of inclusivity, of course. It matters more to them that people who feel like women are recognized as such, just like I feel like a millionaire and expect a check in the mail very soon.

One woman in an open forum on my social media claimed that women and men are the same and that being “transgender” shouldn’t matter. If that were true, then why would a man or woman feel the need to change at all? The very fact that a biological male would feel a type of dysphoria about his own body would suggest that he feels something should be different about him, that something does not match. This logic alone reinforces the fundamental fact that men and women are different. The operation is called a “sex change,” after all.

If that isn’t enough, then let’s envision a scenario. Meet my eldest son. At 16 years of age, this athlete has hit over 50 home runs and set a record of nine touchdowns in a single game. He squats 350 lbs. Few, if any, actual full adult women can achieve what my son can, and he has much more growing to do. They may try, but the majority will fail. So to introduce a male athlete possessing the same stats as my son does to a team of girls with a fraction of the strength and endurance would be asking for injuries like we’ve never seen before. Parents, cover your eyes. Because you will not want to see your daughter get dunked on, tripped up, or tackled by a “transgender” female basketball player.

This isn’t to mention the competitive losses and the scholarship awards that would be snatched from girls who thought they were playing a fair game. Did the feminist movement bring this upon itself? Did it mean for women to be disenfranchised by men? Do they who claim to have an unfair shot in society stack more odds against them? What exactly are we trying to prove?

This social experiment has gone too far. For a policy supporting this trend to reach the White House means the very end of girls’ sports as we know it. It could spell the end of other achievements for women, too. “Transgender” women in music, film, fashion, and beyond could further push real women out of the picture. Female empowerment is close to turning into female embarrassment as society watches this gender take a back seat. We’ll have regressed instead of progressed. Perhaps that’s what some people want to see.
