Kira Davis has an article at Townhall.com that is instructional: Misbehaving Women: How the Transgender Movement Is Silencing Women
One of the girls who recently lost a race to a boy who was pretending to be a girl said:
I fully support and am happy for these athletes for being true to themselves. They should have the right to express themselves in school
One commenter cuts through the clutter with a “can’t have your cake and eat it too” comment:
Spare us, toots. As long as this girl, and you, are “perfectly fine” letting this preposterous nonsense define who and what you are. Who and what those boys preposterously “identify” as, you are part of the problem and deserve no sympathy. You need to stand astride liberalism and yell “stop”. Your willingness to tolerate it emboldens it. You know how it works:
That’s the issue in a nutshell. Yet another columnist writing “What a crazy world it is!” while never opposing the craziness (and actually being a part of it).
And here’s why I support men-pretending-to-be-women competing in women’s sports. Another commenter writes:
Transgender Movement Is Silencing (Bossy Feministic) Women?
The enemy of my enemy is my friend?
So….if you support the normalizing (or at least “the tolerated”) of the abnormal, how can you ever be against the latest abnormal nonsense that is being pushed as normal (and to be tolerated)? You’ve already conceded the argument to the squeaky wheels who need only squeak.
As for Davis’ notion that once again men are defining women, another commenter shows the vacuousness of this argument:
“They [women] were expected to behave themselves.”
I remember when that statement was true not only of women, but of everybody in this country (including kids). The fact that the democrats didn’t like that expectation is not only what’s been empowering the transgenders (and the entire LGBTQ “community”), but has led us to all kinds of societal division and cultural rot (“Black Lies Matter” and “Antifa” and snowflakes in general).
As a man, I have never had anyone put me down for being a man. LOL
Let alone for being white. LOL
Or for believing that being heterosexual is natural genetics. LOL
Or for being a Christian, for believing right and wrong are not determined by myself or by people who don’t even know what gender they are or should behave as. LOL
It’s so politically fashionable on the left to hate white, male, heterosexual Christians that women don’t have to worry … soon enough, it’ll be illegal to be a white, male, heterosexual Christian.
The problem with the left is that everything they think, do and say is seen from a one sided perspective: “It’s us nuts against everybody else! and other nuts, too!”
Conclusion: It’s not the transgender movement that’s silencing women. That’s just a symptom. The cause is leftist (democrat party) lunacy (mind rot), which is working hard overtime to silence everyone who isn’t a politico/moral nutcase.
