The Patriarchy is Wearing a Skirt
The feminist effort to crush the patriarchy has resulted and a new form that comes wearing a skit.
It's a weird time in a culture where we are told that gender is gray, subjective, and fluid. Gender is about “expressing your true self” while at the same time allowing for so much "fluidity" your gender can change from day to day, even hour to hour.
According to gender identity activists, gender is gray
However, the acceptance of this subjectiveness and fluidity is black and white. To be a person of high moral character and tolerance, you must accept that gender is subjective.
Since gender is gray, fluid, subjective, and determined by the individual's "true self," we as a society must accept it as fact and treat transwomen as women. No nuance or pointing to biological facts allowed.
It's appropriate to have compassion for an individual suffering from gender dysphoria. I believe we should be tolerant and compassionate of any individual suffering from a psychological condition. But not at the expense of biology.
Society does have a history of brushing aside, ostracizing, and shaming the mentally ill. It could be argued that the campaign to eliminate the requirement of a mental health condition such as gender dysphoria is to remove the stigma that comes with mental health conditions. But, again, this would also be at the expense of biology.
According to the DSM-5, among male individuals, approximately 0.005 percent to 0.014 percent are later diagnosed with gender dysphoria. Among individuals assigned female at birth, roughly 0.002 percent to 0.003 percent are later diagnosed with gender dysphoria.
Of course, science can change and evolve. That is the nature of the scientific method, especially when there are new scientific discoveries. But one thing that has stood the test of time, from the day the first creatures and human beings walked the earth, is the biology of male and female.
The real challenge is pseudo-science masquerading as real science. Pseudo-science is used to heavily influence culture and society, historically resulting in negative effects. This is where we find ourselves today where the weaponization of tolerance or being labeled a phobic has created a pseudo-science that affirms gender with little to no therapy depending on a patient’s age. It has become increasingly common, primarily in activist circles, that gender dysphoria should no longer be categorized as a psychological condition.
It is no longer a requirement within society to suffer from gender dysphoria to be transgender. Transgenderism has now been entirely co-opted by gender identity activists and is now lumped in with non-binary and numerous other gender identities because someone doesn't "feel" they are feminine or masculine enough.
It's ironic that in the feminists’ attempt to breakdown gender roles, they have more staunchly defined gender roles while simultaneously actively erasing what is unique about women. An oversimplified example of this is that you must be trans or non-binary if you are a female who likes the color blue and plays sports or a male who likes pink and enjoys fashion. Gone are tomboys, feminine men, gays, and lesbians. Today everyone is trans or non-binary.
You see this throughout social media, most prevalently on TikTok, where men and women of all ages attempt to "break the binary." Mainly by women dressing as - what I describe - the equivalent of an emo drunk unicorn and men as caricatures of women sometimes with glitter and over lined lips.
Where has this conflicting narrative brought us?
We have men dominating in women's sports, encroaching on women's spaces and redefining what it means to be a woman. To quote gender activist Addison Rose of Break the Binary, "womanhood is an umbrella term that includes people who identify as a woman." I am glad we cleared that up.
Here are a few examples of "women."
In 2014 Martine Rothblatt, who transitioned at the age of 40, was on the cover of New York Mag as the highest-paid female C.E.O.
Fallon Fox, who transitioned at 31 and served in the Navy as an operations specialist 2nd class for the U.S.S. Enterprise went on to fight in women's M.M.A. Fox stepped into the ring to fight women without disclosing to these women that Fox had been born a man. Before coming out publicly as transgender, Fox already had three amateur and two professional victories as a transgender female in women’s MMA.
During a 2014 fight, after having come out publicly, Fox defeated Tamikka Brents by knockout. Brents suffered a broken orbital bone and required seven staples in her head.
In 2014 Andraya Yearwood, a 17-year-old junior at Cromwell High School, was one of two transgender high school sprinters in Connecticut, transitioning to female.
Yearwood finished second in the 55-meter dash at the state open indoor track championships. The winner, Terry Miller of Bloomfield High, is also transgender and set girls' state indoor record of 6.95 seconds. Yearwood finished in 7.01 seconds, and the third-place competitor, who is not transgender, finished in 7.23 seconds.
Miller and Yearwood also topped the 100-meter state outdoor championships, and Miller won the 300 indoors.
Last year over the summer, a viral video was taken at Wi Spa LA by a disgruntled customer because a staff member allowed a trans "woman" to expose male genitalia to the women and young girls in the women's area. This is just one of the consequences of the transgender bathroom debate and what I call, the religion of inclusivity.
Earlier this year, Amy Schneider, who transitioned in 2017 at 38, was crowned the highest-earning female Jeopardy contestant.
Last year Rachel Levine, who transitioned in 2011 at the age of 54, was appointed as the first female four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health service and just recently was named as one of U.S.A. Today's Women of the Year.
Lia Thomas, a Penn State University swimmer, who completed a year of hormone therapy before competing against women, previously swam on the men's team, has dominated and set new records in women's collegiate swimming, sometimes by almost 30 seconds. Today, Thomas took first place over Emma Weyant in the 500-yard freestyle at the NCAA women's swimming and diving championships at Georgia Tech.
Thomas finished the race in 4 minutes and 33.24 seconds, about three seconds faster than Thomas’ season-best and a Penn record.
Emma Weyant, a University of Virginia freshman and U.S. Olympian placed second with a time of 4:34.99. Erica Sullivan, a University of Texas freshman who's also an Olympian, placed third with a time of 4:35.92.
You might be thinking that was a close race. However, it has been reported that Thomas might be holding back to not win by too much. Back in December, Thomas allegedly bragged after winning the 200 freestyle at the University of Akron Zippy Invitational, "That was so easy, I was cruising." After winning the 500 freestyle Thomas was disappointed with the time but boasted, "At least I'm still No. 1 in the country" in front of teammates.
It has also been alleged that before a race Thomas colluded with transgender female-to-male Yale swimmer Izac Henig to take second place.
Men are proving they are better women than women
Suppose we continue to follow the rules I laid out at the beginning of this article. In that case, it will only be a matter of time before a man will take every podium place. Because regardless of the biological fact that men, who on average are stronger, faster, have more lung capacity and higher bone density than women, are women.
Every time a transwoman gains the position as "the first," a woman never will.
Every time a transwoman breaks a record, a woman will almost certainly never break that record again.
Every time a transwoman is nominated or wins "best of" or "woman of the year," a woman does not.
Every time a transwoman walks around nude in a woman's spa while still fully intact, a woman just needs to deal with it.
I do not throw this word around lightly because I do not accept any status of a victim at the hands of men. But there is no question that the patriarchy is making a comeback, and it's wearing a dress.
