The Overreach of LGBTQ Organizations

By DENNIS PRAGER

Lying is not an issue when truth is not a value.

Virtually every week, there seems to be another issue that preoccupies the country. But while our attention is focused on President Donald Trump, Google, Charlottesville, Russia, impeachment, Jeffrey Epstein, the next elections, racism, a trade war with China, the #MeToo movement, or something else, LGBTQ organizations are quietly going about their work dismantling ethical norms, making a mockery of education, ruining innocent people’s lives and destroying children’s innocence. If you think this is overstated, here are some examples:

The LGBTQ Dismantling of Women’s Sports

Last month, a transgender weightlifter won multiple gold medals at the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa. Laurel Hubbard of New Zealand won two gold medals and a silver in the three heavyweight categories for women weighing more than 87 kilograms, or 192 pounds. Hubbard is physically male.

Last year, two biologically male sophomores at different Connecticut high schools competed in female division of the state open track and field competition. They came in first and second place in the 100- and 200-meter dashes.

Because the Western world cowers before LGBTQ demands, no matter how unfair they are to women athletes, men who deem themselves female must be allowed to compete against women. They almost always win.

The Dismantling of Male and Female — Even at Birth

As reported by the Associated Press: “Parents also can choose (gender) ‘X’ for newborns. New York City is joining California, Oregon, Washington state in allowing an undesignated gender option on birth certificates. A similar provision takes effect in New Jersey in February.”

What percentage of Americans believe children are lucky if born to parents who will not identify them at birth as male or female? On the other hand, how many of us think such parents are engaged in a form of child abuse?

The Dismantling of Children’s Innocence and Parental Authority

The Associated Press also recently reported that “California has overhauled its sex education guidance for public school teachers, encouraging them to talk about gender identity with kindergartners.”

Tatyana Dzyubak, an elementary school teacher in the Sacramento area, objected: “I shouldn’t be teaching that stuff. That’s for parents to do.”

But parents and parental authority have always been a thorn in the side of totalitarian movements. Therefore, dismantling parental authority is one of the primary goals of the left, of which LGBTQ organizations are a major component.

Libraries in major urban centers now feature Drag Queen Story Hour — drag queens reading stories to preschool-age children. (Read, for example, the laudatory New York Times article “Drag Queen Story Hour Puts the Rainbow in Reading” from May 19, 2017.)

A few weeks ago, the popular actor and TV host Mario Lopez told Candace Owens

“If you’re 3 years old and you’re saying you’re feeling a certain way or you think you’re a boy or a girl, whatever the case may be, I just think it’s dangerous as a parent to make that determination then: ‘OK, well, then you’re going to be a boy or a girl,’ whatever the case may be. … I think parents need to allow their kids to be kids, but at the same time, you gotta be the adult in the situation.”

For sensibly and respectfully saying what any loving parent of a 3-year-old should say, he was so forcefully condemned by GLAAD and PFLAG, two of the biggest LGBTQ organizations, that, knowing his livelihood was on the line, he immediately recanted. In the style of the Chinese Cultural Revolution, he “recanted” everything he said and acknowledged how much he still has to learn about parents allowing 3-year-olds to determine their gender.

The Dismantling of Educational Norms

CNN reported last week:

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed into law a bill that ensures the contributions of LGBTQ people are taught in public schools. …

(The bill states) ‘In public schools only, the teaching of history shall include a study of the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this State.’

Equality Illinois, the state’s largest LGBTQ civil rights advocacy organization, supported the bill and said the curriculum can have a ‘positive effect on students’ self-image and make their peers more accepting.’

Once the purpose of teaching history is changed from teaching what happened to “having a positive effect on students’ self-image,” history is no longer about what happened; it is propaganda. But rewriting history is not a problem for the left. As a famous Soviet dissident joke put it: “In the Soviet Union, the future is known; it’s the past that is always changing.” I note almost every day that truth is a liberal value and a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. This is just one more example.

The Dismantling of Reality

David Zirin, sports editor of The Nation: “There is another argument against allowing trans athletes to compete with cis-gender athletes that suggests that their presence hurts cis-women and cis-girls. But this line of thought doesn’t acknowledge that trans women are in fact women” (italics added).

Rep. Ilhan Omar, (D., Minn.), in a letter to USA Powerlifting: “The myth that trans women have a ‘direct competitive advantage’ is not supported by medical science.”

Sunu Chandy of the National Women’s Law Center: “There’s no research to support the claim that allowing trans athletes to play on teams that fit their gender identity will create a competitive imbalance.”

How can these people say such lies? Because lying is not an issue when truth is not a value. LGBTQ organizations care about lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders as much as communists cared about workers. They use them as a cover for their real agenda: dismantling civilization as we know it.

Scientists have discovered a gene in kiwifruit that could lead to the breeding of hermaphrodite varieties, making the male plant redundant and boosting returns for growers.

Because only female kiwifruit produce fruit, growers have been looking for ways to find out if their plants re male or female.

Until now, that has meant growing the plants for up to four years until they flowered.

Very interesting article that may lead to research into the why’s and wherefores of the alphabet soup.
Well worth the read and with links to the techy stuff for those like Maggy who will understand it and perhaps can explain it in simple terms for us.

I’m a ‘live and let live’ kinda guy-I couldn’t care less if a bloke wants to wear a dress and call himself Shirley.
But leave kids alone- As Mario Lopez said ‘Let them be kids’….
*It astonishes me when Celebrities (Charlize Theron,Pink etc etc) fashionably bleat to the Media ‘My three year old is Transgender’ etc etc

IMHO the problem is linguistic. We conflate reproductive sex with gender role in society.
Hormones released during puberty by our genitals have a very sinificant effect on physical development and while some are indeed reversed when changing the hormones, others such as skeletal structure are not, thus I think trans people should have had hormone therapy for some time and should only be allowed to compete in sports that have height and weight categories to level the playing field.

We are also conflating here concepts such as drag, homosexuality and transgender.
Thespian arts for instance, have a long standing tradition of male performers in feminine roles, but it doesn’t mean they are gay, nor wish to actually live as were they of the opposite sex in daily life. For some it’s just a performing art, while for others, the fantasy is a sexual turn on. Evidently it’s wrong to involve children in fantasies of a sexual nature, but I don’t think it’s a problem to promote acceptance of male people in feminine roles that are not related to having sex (or female people in masculine roles for that matter). So exactly what stories are these drag queens reading and is their attire and performance age appropriate… As a parent I would ask myself if i would accept their attire and behavior from a straight female person… and if so then perhaps the drag art is innocuous.

On one hand we have those (usually religious) people who want the State to intervene and tell people what gender they are and who they can have sex with.

On the other hand we have those who demand the State intervene to dismantle all the works of nature and evolution. While granting special status to the divergent.

In the middle we have the silent majority getting on with their lives, regardless of their gender/sexuality.

exactly… there is absolutely no need for anyone to make an issue, or confrontational public display of their gender identity or sexuality. It’s a personal matter although I don’t think people should be shamed, forced to hide it, or be persecuted for it either and that’s all gay liberation was about until the social justice crowd decided to use it as a prop for their victim narrative.
