Salute the pastel rainbow flag and get back in the kitchen, ladies
Yesterday, I offered to give ACLU attorney and biological sex denier Chase Strangio $1 million to explain how babies are made. That post drew quite a response from Strangio. Indeed, I think this is a tweet for the ages.
"I'm not saying that biological sex doesn't exist, I'm just saying that laws should not recognize its existence" https://t.co/8YjgNpz4PI

Chase seems to be admitting that the new orthodoxy demolishes sex-based human rights, and that by extension, the American Civil Liberties Union is not fit for purpose, at least as far as defending women from oppression is concerned.
In the brave new world they are building, men get what they want and women get to be “men” if they want. Identify out of your oppression, ladies! It’s just a haircut and an unconvincing mustache out of your reach, now.
Consider just one example of where this kind of thinking leads. By ACLU policy, every American female athlete’s sex-based human right to fair sporting competition is being canceled. This is a work in progress.
Women and girls in contact sports must prepare themselves for collisions with heavier, stronger opponents, and thus increased injury rates, to say nothing of the medals and trophies and scholarships that will now go to the male athletes who like to perform “feminine” stereotypes.
Chase Strangio and the ACLU would rather ignore actual physical harm to women and girls than hurt the feelings of a boy who likes to wear lipstick.
If that sounds harsh, remember that Chase also says it is better for a trans person to die of preventable causes than explain their trans status to a doctor. One could therefore be forgiven for sensing sociopathy at work in this complaint that trans people are “excluded” from biological categories to which they do not belong just because some silly laws have been put in place to protect the people in those categories. It isn’t off-base.
Only someone who hates women, and/or hates being a woman so much that they hate women, could come up with this nonsense and say it with a straight face.
