Mary Rice Hasson has her say on the blog of the religious right Ethics and Public Policy Center. Earlier today I wrote about a Catholic secondary school teacher and conspiracy theorist. His claim was that this was all about making us unisex, or … something like that. Hasson has a different theory:
Transgender activists—including now the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education—deny the reality that biological sex is intrinsically connected to male and female identity.…
The endgame for gender ideologues and their allies (feminist, Marxist, gay, lesbian, “gender-queer,” and so forth) has nothing to do with bathrooms and everything to do with the things we cherish most: they are bent on dismantling the natural family, marginalizing or muzzling religious belief, particularly Christianity, and exalting personal “will” and autonomy above everything (except the state, of course). And there is no middle ground.
You know, they said the exact same thing about marriage. Gays did not want to marry for the legal protection and social values. Oh no we wanted to legalize same-sex marriage so that we could wreck marriage. It is almost a year now since Obergefell. Have we destroyed marriage as an institution? Is there a metric for that? An app perchance? Are we making any demonstrable progress?
As for Ms. Hasson, she has a habit of projecting. She is also willing to embrace preposterous conspiracy theories.
Moreover, “we” (if there is a we) are not intent on marginalizing or muzzling Christian belief. Isn’t it obvious by now that we don’t care about conservative Christian belief. We simply think that they should stop trying to impose their values on society by force of public policy. As I said, Msw. Hasson projects. If conservative Christians would be content for adherents to follow their rules; If they would stay the hell out of everyone else’s bedrooms and bathrooms then they would not face so much criticism and they would not feel marginalized.
This “poor us” is really getting terribly tedious. We get it. They are persecuted. They need to feel persecuted. It is in their DNA. You want it? You got it.
I am going to repeat myself:
The agenda is to make life better for people with non-conforming sexuality including sexual orientation and sexual identity. It’s the old canard. When you hear hoof-beats think horses, not zebras. Social and medical science does not—and should not—conform to ancient chronicles of questionable provenance.
