The United States was always meant to be a free country.
If an individual feels strongly that they would like to live their life taking on the appearance of a member of the opposite sex, they are still entitled to their right to live, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Anyone else who would like to endorse and affirm this challenging life choice is free to do so.
But there’s not one individual in this country, or even the planet, who has the God-given right to refuse biological reality or to be shielded from an opposing view to that belief.
It’s chilling that it’s become cultural anathema to say what should be abundantly obvious to anyone who possesses basic critical thinking skills.
There’s a big difference between supporting someone’s choice to live as a transgender person and literally banning any mention of said person’s biological sex.
I mean…you wouldn’t be “transgender” unless there was something to “trans” from.
If you want the right to live your life claiming to be a woman if you are, in fact, biologically male, you cannot have this right unless you accept the other side of that coin: every single human being on God’s green earth has a right to disagree with you that you’re a woman if you do.
When a man who believes that he is a woman can conceive a child in their “womb” let me know. I might change my mind.
It’s reasonable to request people respect you and your choices, but it is unreasonable to expect such respect to be mandated. As if respect or kindness were things that even can be mandated, by anyone.
Transgender people have every right to live their lives in peace; those who believe that the solution to their desire to live their lives as a member of the opposite sex is not the healthiest have every right to believe and express these beliefs as well.
That’s kind of how the whole freedom thing works.
Do, say, “express” whatever you like, you don’t get to define reality just because you’re doing something pretty dramatic with your freedom that a lot of people are going to take issue with, like claiming to be a woman when you are, in fact, a man.
A Christian group has been suspended from Twitter after stating that Dr. Rachel Levine, the transgender assistant secretary for health at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is a biological male.
Of course, Dr. Rachel Levine of the Biden HHS is a biological male.
Otherwise “she” would just be a woman, and it wouldn’t be remarkable at all that “she” had been appointed to the position of assistant secretary for health at the federal agency.
Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family, recently wrote in a blog that his organization could be added to the list of conservatives like former President Donald Trump and his supporters who have been booted from the Big Tech platform:
As I’ve noted before, Big Tech titans are the new emperors of the twenty-first century, wielding an inordinate amount of power by silencing individuals and organizations that don’t comport or cave to their political or social point of view.
This past week, Twitter locked The Daily Citizen for an alleged rules violation, specifically that we had posted “hateful” content. It’s simply not true. We did no such thing.
At issue was a Tweet pointing to a story about Dr. Rachel Levine, President Biden’s controversial nominee for Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of Health and Human Services. The tweet included the following sentence:
“Dr. Levine is a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.”
This is precisely what a transgender person is, of course. Again…otherwise they wouldn’t be “transgender.”
It is beyond controversial to make these statements in this day and age but we need to keep affirming the simple truth of the matter until it no longer has any power to try to cancel those who say it.
No one is advocating for anything other than the simple truth. No one wants to restrict anyone’s rights, where such rights are legitimate. But no one has a right to force others to make a statement that is patently untrue or to ban the plain statement of the truth.
That in itself restricts individual freedoms.
