So, at one end of the spectrum, progressives are encouraging adults (and especially women) to behave like prepubescent children. At the other end of the scale, prepubescent children are being both hypersexualized, and treated like they should be allowed to make all kinds of decisions with serious, unalterable consequences for themselves.
South Bay Congressman Mike Honda, 73, is no different any other grandparent who brags about their “truly special” grandchild. But the Democratic House member has put himself in the national spotlight by tweeting and talking about his granddaughter Malisa, who is 8 years old — and transgender.
In an opinion piece last week in the Bay Area Reporter, the gay and lesbian newspaper, Honda described in detail the story of his grandchild, whom he said was “assigned male at birth,” but who at 18 months “announced to my daughter’s family: ‘I’m a girl.’”
18 months is also the usual age at which Democrats fix their ideas on economic, social, and foreign policy.
