A group of House Democrats recently proved to be science deniers when they exclaimed that it is both “cruel” and, even more amazingly, “un-scientific” to define people based on their birth gender.
Once again the Democrats have proven to be the party of politics over facts by sending a letter to the White House to protest his possible policy of returning the definition of gender back to its science-based idea of natural birth gender in government policy.
In their letter, the Democrats accused the Trump administration of pushing a policy that “makes it clear that members of this administration are willing to … solidify an archaic, dogmatic, and alarming view of the world.”
So, saying that people are born either male or female is “alarming”? Yes, so say Democrats who think there are 58 genders.
Continuing their all-out assault on truth, reality, and science, the Democrats go on to insist that the proposed policy change would take away protections against sexual discrimination.
This proposal intended to erase transgender people from federal civil rights protection and eviscerate enforcement of non-discrimination laws … Under this proposal, it is possible for a transgender person to be denied access to medical care or health insurance or be refused access to emergency shelter or public housing, and transgender children could be denied access to public education.
This screed ends with a risible accusation saying “This proposal os an unequivocal attack on the dignity and lives of American citizens. We demand a complete rejection of this shameless attempt to eliminate the rights of transgender people.”
This, of course, is all lunacy. There are already laws on the books to prevent sexual discrimination. Returning the official definition of gender back to the science-based birth gender will do nothing to foster or excuse discrimination.
Of course, this Democrat letter is all in service to the mental illness known as transgenderism.
