In the conservative media we often discuss what exactly is going on in the debate over sexuality, family, morality, and culture in America today. We all have our own opinions and we all differ on what problems are the biggest and which solutions may be the best, but none of us know for sure what any of the answers really are. Recently, Life Site News ran a piece that could shed some real light on the situation, and not because it’s another great opinion about what we should do, but because the piece highlights the thoughts of the activists leading the LGBT movement.
The battle over men accessing women’s bathrooms and vice versa has little do with bathrooms or even transgenderism, a well-known LGBT activist admitted last week. It has everything to do with re-working society and getting rid of the “heterobinary structure” in which we live—eliminating distinctions between “male” and “female” altogether.
Riki Wilchins, who has undergone “sex change” surgery and is a far-left social change activist, wrote in the gay publication The Advocate last week that social conservatives and many LGBT activists are missing the point when it comes to the transgender bathroom debate.
The title of Wilchins’ article makes the points succinctly: “We’ll Win the Bathroom Battle When the Binary Burns.”
People who advocate for bathroom privacy and transgender advocates who insist boys should be allowed in girls’ bathrooms and vice versa are missing a larger point, Wilchins wrote. The fact that there are even male and female bathrooms reflects that our society is structured in a “binary” way, and this needs to change in order for the full goals of the LGBT movement to be enacted.
“Queer activists have been talking about [this] at least since the 1970s of Gay Liberation, even as the movement it spawned has continued to nudge it aside,” wrote Wilchins…
“They want to destroy the concepts of male and female entirely,” Rob Dreher at The American Conservative warned. “This is what they’re after, and they’re not going to stop until it is accomplished.”
“What we are really talking about is the abolition of sex,” Stella Morabito, senior contributor to The Federalist and an expert on cults and propaganda, told LifeSiteNews. “And it is sex that the trans project is serving to abolish legally, under the guise of something called ‘the gender binary.’ Its endgame is a society in which everyone is legally de-sexed. No longer legally male or female. And once you basically redefine humanity as sexless you end up with a de-humanized society in which there can be no legal ‘mother’ or ‘father’ or ‘son’ or ‘daughter’ or ‘husband’ or ‘wife’ without permission from the State. Government documents are already erasing the terms. In such a society, the most intimate human relationships take a hit. The family ends up abolished.”
“A sexless society is ultimately a totalitarian society because it erases in law the most basic human relationships,” said Morabito, “particularly the mother-child bond.”
“Sex distinctions are the germ of all human relationships,” said Morabito. “Abolishing them legally basically abolishes family autonomy. And this is an act of violence against children because it would serve at some point to separate them from their origins. Every child’s first transcendental question is ‘Where did I come from?’ If the law will not allow the child to see his own origins and wholeness in the faces of a mother and a father, it destabilizes the child’s sense of self. It creates personal dysfunction in children and basically ends up spreading more dysfunction and even dystopia in society.”
Wilchins praised transgender advocates for their work, noting that they have “finally and perhaps unwittingly opened the gender Pandora’s Box, and over the next few years all sorts of unexpected non-binary things…are about to come popping out.”
We have a lot of work to do, folks. Our opponents are focused on the long-game even as we quibble over the smaller battles that they keep throwing our way. Don’t get bogged down in debating what Target is doing with their bathrooms when the bigger picture is the assault on our children through the public school. Always keep the bigger picture in the forefront of your mind.
