Every House Democrat but one has co-sponsored a bill requiring schools to allow male athletes who identify as transgender girls to compete on female sports teams.
Democrats’ Equality Act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law. Among other things, the bill would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.
Supporters of the bill are brazenly asserting that experience has shown that male-to-female trans athletes have no inherent advantage over biological females. Think about that: you know that isn’t true. You know, without even looking up the recent news stories of female athletic records being broken by trans athletes, that people making such an assertion are lying to you. But, they go ahead and do it – and they are defying you to call them liars. They feel confident you won’t, because you’ll be afraid of the social ostracism which may result.
It simply defies reason – meaning, it is insane – to hold that men are not physically stronger than women. Sure, you can probably find a completely in shape, well trained female boxer who can kick my a** into next week…but, in the normal run, a woman hitting me will have very little affect save, perhaps, to annoy me a little. And I’m not a big, athletic guy – I’m smaller than average and I don’t work out. I’m not guessing about this: I’ve been hit by a girl my height with all her might (long story)…it didn’t do a darned thing to me. The movies which show a 120 pound woman taking down a 200 pound male bad guy: garbage. You know it. I know it. The people making the movies know it. Men are physically stronger than women by a lot, and there’s an end on it. But, the left is now insisting that we discard what we know to be true. They are demanding, that is, that we agree to be insane – and to lie about it.
And that is the crucial thing here – the lie. It is very, very important to the left that we become habitual liars. A nation of liars has no moral center – and no way to defy the purveyors of lies. Done long enough, a nation of liars becomes incapable of recognizing the truth. This is the last line: if they push us beyond it, we’re done. We’ve already surrendered every other thing to the left (thanks, Tru-Cons!) and if they can get us to lie – especially if they can get us to do it out of cowardly fear – then we’ll never be in a position to take them down.
