The New York Times really had a field day with the headline: Trump Administration Eyes Defining Transgender Out of Existence.
Like, whoa. Who knew that President Trump was so powerful that, by merely changing the definition of a word or shifting a policy, he could completely rid the country of all transgender people! That’s a lot of power. Maybe the left was onto something when they called him the second coming of Adolf Hitler. Hell, not even Hitler could just sign a piece of legislation or pen an executive order to make Jews vanish overnight. Imagine what will happen to the Democratic Party if Trump “eyes” defining them out of existence. A president with the ability to manipulate time, space, and matter! MAGA!
Now when you read the story, you see that not a single transgender American will be affected, identity-wise, by anything the Trump administration decides to do. Men will be every bit as free to put on a dress, refer to themselves as a woman, and make silly demands about which pronouns people must use when referring to them. And everyone else will be just as free to play into that nonsense or ignore it, whichever the case may be. No one will be spirited away from material existence.
What the Trump administration is actually doing, as reported in the article:
The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law.
A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of sex in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing sex largely as an individual’s choice — and prompting fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple concept. Conservatives, especially evangelical Christians, were incensed.
Now the Department of Health and Human Services is spearheading an effort to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans gender discrimination in education programs that receive government financial assistance, according to a memo obtained by The New York Times.
Just consider for a moment that it is a “drastic move” on the part of the administration to define Title IX benefits as belonging solely to biological women. Yes, this radical, authoritarian monster says that to be protected by special legislation meant to protect women…you have to actually BE a woman. How savage. How brutish. How awful!
What the left is really mad about is that Obama couldn’t define common sense out of existence, as hard as he tried. Now that we are coming back around to acknowledging it, they are disappointed we no longer have a federal government willing to indulge their perverted fantasies.
