It’s unfortunate that we are even having discussions like this in the first place, but nevertheless, there is an ongoing debate in this country regarding whether a person's sex and gender is defined by biology or by how they feel on the inside. Those who argue the former believe (correctly) that those born with male genitalia are males, and those born with female genitalia are females. On the contrary, those who believe in the latter argument, argue that science and biology are irrelevant, and that the only thing that matters is how someone feels.
In other words, even if someone was born with male genitalia, if he feels like a woman, a liberal would argue that he is a woman. So which mindset should our society adopt and move forward with?
It’s worth noting that there are numerous problems with compelling all of society to switch from basing gender on science to basing gender on how one feels on the inside.
For one, if self-identity now trumps science, that means that there is an infinite number of genders because there’s no limit to what people can choose to self-identify as. Under this warped mentality, people can identify as anything they want, from a tree, to a car, to a polar bear, to a hamster, to a space alien. People would even be allowed to throw random letters together and use that as their gender, even though not a single other person on earth would have any idea what that word means. (Related: However you identify, there are only two types of brains: male and female.)
Liberals have even admitted that there is no way to put a number on the amount of genders currently in existence. In the latest installment in his YouTube series Change My Mind, conservative commentator Steven Crowder talked to several college students about this very issue, and not a single one was able to say how many genders there are.
“I would say, um – we would say there are two genders being man and woman, and then that there would be people that don’t accept either one of those, and that would be an X or in a non-identifying category,” one of the students told Crowder.
Another said, “You can’t put a number on the number of genders because everyone uses different words to classify themselves.” (Related: There has been a huge increase in the number of children being indoctrinated with gender identity propaganda.)
If the choice is between two genders or an infinite number of genders, it unfortunately seems as though the Left have chosen the latter, even though basic science and biology don't back that theory up. What’s worse is that not only are liberals starting to reject science and replace it with people's personal feelings, but they are also now trying to compel all of society to think and speak like they do as a matter of law.
In California, health care workers who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse to use a transgendered patient’s “preferred name or pronouns” could face time in jail, according to a new law that was signed by Governor Jerry Brown back in October. Even though some democrats, such as state Senator Scott Wiener, have argued that no one is going to be prosecuted for using the wrong pronoun, the language used in the legislation itself seems to suggest otherwise.
“It shall be unlawful for a long-term care facility or facility staff to take any of the following actions wholly or partially on the basis of a person’s actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status,” the bill reads.
So, there are an infinite number of genders, and if you use the wrong one, you could face jail time. If that’s not a recipe for disaster, then what is?
