The Trump administration has committed the unforgivable sin of being sensible. In a move guaranteed to trigger thousands of lefties and send snowflakes into meltdown, The White House has proposed the idea of recognizing “sex” as “biological sex” for purposes of Title IX, according to a draft memo leaked to the New York Times.
This seemingly innocuous proposal has sparked a firestorm with hate speech spewing from the mouths and through the fingers of university brainwashed idiots and their even more idiotic professors and lecturers as they leap to the decence of terminally confused individuals who believe people with testicles can be women and people with ovaries can be men.
First, a brief background.
Title IX prohibits discrimination “on the basis of sex” in federally funded programs. It was passed in 1972 as part of the Education Amendments Act to ensure that women have access to educational programs equivalent to men’s programs.
In 2016, in a blatant act of executive overreach, the Obama administration issued a guidance letter reinterpreting “sex” to include sexual orientation and gender identity. The letter required schools to “‘treat a student’s gender identity as the student’s sex for purposes of Title IX.” This drastic reinterpretation was done without an act of Congress or even the normal rule-making process for regulations. In other words the president who told Americans they must believe ‘the science’ on climate change, even though its conclusions are very dubious, was telling them in matters of biology they must inore thousands of years of scientific evidence and follow the diktat ofchicks-with dicks (like his ‘wife’?) or men who think having their dicks lopped off makes them women.
So ‘the science is settled’ on carbon dioxide, but not on what defines us as men and women. Well if certain rumours about Obama are true, there might be room for doubt in his case, but obviously Donald Trump has a better grasp of science.
Obama’s blurring of the lines that separate men from women spurred a frenzy of disputes over trans-sanity students claiming access to spaces restricted to the opposite sex—bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, dormitories, sports teams, and so on.
Then, in 2017, the Trump administration rescinded the Obama guidelines. But it left unclear just what the law does require. Hence the administration’s current effort to provide a clear, uniform definition of the term “sex.”
The memo suggests that “the sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.” In this way, sex will be determined “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.”
Who could object to science and objectivity? Lots of people, apparently, and most of them are among the demographic that claims to ‘believe’ in science and reason (the trouble with reason, I always find, is that it’s so irrational. The New York Times reported the story with the overheated headline “Trump Administration Eyes Defining Transgender Out of Existence.”
The New York Times reported the story with the overheated headline “Trump Administration Eyes Defining Transgender Out of Existence.”
Actually, no. The administration is merely saying that Title IX does not apply to trans people. No one is being defined “out of existence.” There are lots of laws that do not apply to you or me, and that fact does not deny our existence.
Jonathan Weisman, deputy Washington editor of The NYT, likewise indulged in histrionic overstatement, tweeting, “The Trump Admin has a new definition of sex that would render 1.4 million transgendered people legally nonexistent.”
Not exactly. The administration is saying that discrimination “on the basis of sex” means biological sex, not gender identity. Trans people still enjoy all the ordinary protections of other citizens, including the Bill of Rights and all other constitutional rights.
George Takei, the “Star Trek” actor, tweeted, “The Trump administration is trying to make trans people disappear by defining gender as only male and female, determined by genitalia at birth.”
Come back to earth, Mr. Takei. The administration is not trying to make people “disappear.” The fact is that Title IX was originally intended to apply to biological sex — which, by the way, is established not at birth but long before birth. Most parents use ultrasound to discover their babies’ sex before they are born.
Planned Parenthood panicked, tweeting, “This is horrifying. These inhumane, cruel, and discriminatory policies are dangerous.” (Ironic, considering that words like “inhumane” and “cruel” describe what Planned Parenthood itself does — tearing apart tiny babies.)
If we ignore the dramatics and the hissy fits of the Gay BLT lobby, the current administration is seeking to correct the Obama administration’s overreach. The lawmakers who passed Title IX in 1972 did not mean sexual orientation and gender identity. They wanted to protect women’s rights. Period. Including women’s rights to have periods withouty being sneered at by leering men. Privacy.
Ironically, Obama’s reinterpretation had precisely the opposite outcome. It undercut women’s rights by reducing biological sex to a social construct.
Trans ideologues claim what counts are not objective facts based on irefutable scientific evidence but subjective feelings although, scientific evidence shows that in the great scheme of things an individual’s feelings are no more significant than a gnat’s fart in a hurricaneim. They insist that people with penises and prostate glands are “women” if they feel like women. Or that people with uteruses are “men” if they feel like men. That’s why we see misleading headlines like “Man Gives Birth to Healthy Baby” (in reality, a woman living as a man (with a facsimile willie) whose ovaries and womb is still intact). We should perhaps tell such people to go and fuck themselves. Watching the outcome could be hysterically funny.
If we can no longer define women by objective, scientific criteria, then we can no longer legally protect women as a class, which renders feminism redundant (this blog has always said feminism is a synonym of stupid,) and throws into chaos most of the equality laws passed in the lest few decades. We cannot legally protect a category of people if we cannot identify that category. This was proved in a recent case with came to court in England, of a ‘transgender’ man who by claiming that on the basis of his feeling he is a woman was sent to a women’s prison, where he was soon arrested on several charges of rape and sexual molestation. He may have ‘felt’ like a woman but he looked like a man (an ugly man at that, and he raped like a man by forcing himself on his victims and penetrating them.
An individual’s feelings are important, but the law must apply to all equally, and therefore it must be based on scientific facts, not the half arsed whims of politically correct idiots..
The Logical Failure Of Science Fans
Thus in essence is the basis on which many science fans argue in internet comment threads.
A question posted on Quora involved me in a discussion with a typical member of this group, he’s besotted with science and argues from the perspective of a religious believer rather that somebody who questions things objectively.

How the gay-marriage campaign has unleashed a bureaucratic assault on people’s identities
Do gooders, progressives and bleeding hearts hurl hatred at those who question gay mariage.

Homosexuality: As a liberal society we have a duty to tolderate, not celebrate
Even though the government has accepted a very limited definition of same sex marriage the gay lobby keeps raving on about the greates non issue of all time.

These stupid laws insult the public and threaten free speech
When the law forbids us to insult or offend somebody, to insult or offend a religion, race, skin colour or sexual preference, free speech and other important democratic rights are under threat. When the law then goes on to say that anyone accused of these offences has no right to defend themselves and the word of the accuser is sufficient evidence on which to obtain a conviction then we have abandoned justice and are ruled by fascists.
Identities On ParadeEvery day we hear stories of the idiocies perpetrated by the Politically Correct Thought Police who in their zeal for being fair to ethnic, gender and sexual minorities only succeed in being unfair to everybody. This story of a Britisht army military tribunral and a case of discrimination against a woman soldier it is hearing reaches unprecedented levels of stupidity even for the Politically Correct idiots.
The Equalities BillThe Equalities Bill, passed by the previous Labour government before they were ejected from power becomes law today. This farrago is typical of the imbecilic mindset of the self righteous hypocrites who style themselves the progressive left. Presented as a law in support of equality in the workplace , in this era of pandemic joblessness and perpetual financial crisis it is nothing but an attack on the businesses that provide the real, wealth producing, revenue generating jobs in the private sector.

Broken SocietiesAn appraisal of Coming Apart: The State of White America 1960-2010 by Charles Murray. inequality is a very hot topic, Murray is one of the few people looking at it from a conservative point of view, which is strange when one looks at what is most likely causing this divide. Policically nations have never ben more polarised with conservatives and liberals both convinced the other is evil, while the gap between rich and poor widens, the middle class disintegrates and the working class becomes a state dependent underclass.
Liberal BigotsProgressive liberals, or the progressive left, or Trotskyites as the politically correct core of the Labour, Geen and Lib Dem parties would call themselves are quick to accuse their critics of being intolerant bigots.

Equal Rights Campaigners Not Christians Are Imposing Their Belief On OthersWhen head of the Euality and Human Rights Commission Trevor Phillips speaks we should termble.
