Long story short, the reason the Transgender Agenda is being pushed so hard right now is because it fits in with the overall scheme of the cultural left to completely deconstruct society, abolish traditional norms of family, and create a rubric for the State to police, regulate, and control all social interactions.
I don’t agree with everything in this article, but it makes a case for its side of the argument.
This gender-neutral scheme obliterates the template for the family as a unit. And if the family is no longer accepted as a union that originates through the union of male and female, there is no real basis for the State to recognize any family as an autonomous unit. Without any such obligation, children become more easily classified as state property and our personal relationships are more easily controlled by the state. If that sounds totalitarian, that’s because it is.
The legal erasure of gender distinctions, especially as they relate to the conception, gestation, and birth of children, would effectively cut us off from our spouses and children in the eyes of the law. How can it be otherwise? Yeah, maybe in the bargain we’ll retain the right to “freely” call ourselves male, female, or other. But once we’ve in essence sold our birthright, this is nothing more than a bowl of pottage.
And at this link, Michael Medved — very dangerously and courageously — takes on the issue of “Transgendered Children” and whether a real sex change is even possible. (Don’t listen at work, you might get fired for entertaining politically incorrect thoughts.)
