Leftists Twist Words and Laws

gender laws

Much of what passes for logical, progressive, legal thinking is none of those – it is illogical, regressive, and twists the law. No one will say this, but the left is setting up twisted liability. Those meant to be protected are being hurt. Examples are legion – and demand attention.

Years ago, in response to sexual harassment in the workplace and schools, state and federal laws emerged to protect those needing protection, chiefly women and girls. A central tenet of these laws and cases was the “hostile environment,” which tolerated discrimination.

Fast forward to 2022. Laws protecting women are bending back on themselves, thanks to the left. They are being used against biological women and girls in education, not for them.

Title IX lawsuits that empower biological girls by preventing the denial of separate female teams, locker rooms, bathrooms, and competitive environments are now about to be used against biological girls and those who defend them as the Biden Administration redefines Title IX.

Where humanity and law have long understood two genders, male and female, across the animal kingdom, the left indulges radical redefinition, asserting 72 separate genders (based on mental health), including “agender, cisgender, genderfluid, genderqueer, intersex, gender nonconforming, and transgender.”

In the leftist zeitgeist of this era, mass-redefinition of all things gender and race to border protection and legitimate causes for disaffection, boys and girls no longer exist – except, of course, they do.    

This has significant implications for the application of historically clear laws in utterly unforeseen situations. Thus, a boy who believes he is a girl can now assert the right to compete in girls’ sports and soon sue for Title IX violation if blocked – after the Biden Administration redefinition.

The implications are not good, and not thought out. While some accommodation for emotional and mental dysphoria may be fitting, disenfranchisement of all biological girls – and sudden liability for those who defend biological girls – makes no sense.

The law is being twisted in a way that turns Title IX’s shield to protect girls into a sword to impale them, deter them, demotivate, disenfranchise, and victimize them.

But this is just the start. Think about the entire body of laws called “hostile educational environment” and civil rights that focus on protecting biological women from discrimination rooted in prejudice toward their biological femininity or gender.

Suddenly, these laws can be used against biological women – who have long counted on their anti-discrimination provisions. Instead, 71 genders (or however many one imagines) can now sue biological girls, women, and those who defend them, using the very laws meant to protect them.

Go a step further. Look at the twisted way of thinking the modern left – the Democrat Party – is now giving us, allowing the application of other laws wholly out of context.

Critical Race Theory (CRT) involves teaching that racial identity unchangeably defines one’s potential for success in society, however, measured. In effect, using the Marxist principle of immutable classes, CRT teaches unchangeable institutional racism.

Now, imagine that you are someone who disagrees with the idea that race defines human potential, but with the idea – embodied in our Constitution – that God gives all humans an equal right to success and that society should work to assure that God-given promise gets fulfilled. 

In effect, you are anti-CRT, which means that you are viewed by those who teach this brand of Marxism, based on teaching unchanging racism, as a racist. Now, those who are devotedly anti-racist, who subscribe to the Constitutional promises of equal protection and individual liberty unrelated to race, are liable for promoting what leftists call racism.

In other words, laws that push equal opportunity, equality before the law, and constitutional norms that elevate the individual regardless of skin color, are now presumed racist.

Shift again to ideas like citizenship, which is constantly being transmuted, watered down, and given away to those who can crash the border and get here physically but have no legal claim to citizenship or its benefits. The left now empowers them with civil rights, used against citizens.

Shift again to criminal law and consider the way in which basic ideas are being twisted. A biologically female child (unfortunately this has happened) who is assaulted in a girl’s bathroom or locker room by a biological boy who “identifies” as a girl, is now disadvantaged by the idea that the assault was somehow not the school’s fault. Plainly, occurring where it did, with permission given by the school for deep privacy violations, it was.

And think about how the law of assault, which involves putting another person in fear – a reasonable person being in fear – is being twisted.

A girl is no longer expected to entertain any kind of fear when confronted by a biological boy in her bathroom. She is deemed to be the offender, her fear unreasonable if she suggests as that the situation engenders fear. Is that reasonable? Defensible? No, of course not.

What is happening is that basic words, long used in the law in predictable, acceptable, understood ways – are changing. Expectations of what is reasonable are being changed by the left, as well as expectations of privacy, safety, respect, and healthy child development.

Where does all this lead? Back to start, back to a reexamination of what kind of society we wish to live in, one that understands reasonable expectations and majority sensibilities as defining forces, or one that is prepared to throw everything away, from boys and girls to assault.

Perhaps the most prominent unspoken fact is the political left misapplying long-established words and laws in ways that hurt those meant to be protected – girls, women, citizens. The time is now to say words, laws, biology, borders, and safety have real meanings. Time to strop twisting them.

Hold on! You’re actively fighting for and celebrating the fact that the stacked corrupted Supreme Court seems to be ready to reinstate slavery for American women and little girls by forcing them to surrender the sovereignty over their own bodies to make them the property of the state, but the freedom to choose whether to socially identify as a man or a woman is oppressive? … While you “twist” making it more difficult, if not impossible for the American people to vote depending on their address into upholding “election integrity”?

Yes. They are intend to create slave states and free states. Americans already believe slavery is unacceptable anywhere in America. The matter was decided by America’s first Civil War and refined in the following century by America’s Civil Rights and Women’s movements.

And what might YOU call the soon to be aborted child being sentenced to death?Are they a slave or a master?What is the woman who decides to abort her child; A slave or master?Using your logic the answer is quite obvious…The government has no ability to make pregnant womne slaves. The women, by their own actions have bestowed this upon themselves. I hardly agree that raising a child is akin to being a slave after raisng 5 children.Birth control is free to those who cannot afford it. It is paid for by the taxes most of us pay to the government. If a woman chooses to not take advantage of this, it is her free choice to do so. THAT’S RIGHT: She has FREEDOM OF CHOICE to not become impregnated. It costs her nothing. All it takes is a tiny bit of personal responsibility to enjoy sex without worry and having to undergo an unnecessary medical procedure.The curent court is not corrupt, they are simply debating the correction of a mistake made by a previous court that is not within the Supreme courts jurisdiction. Nothing has changed, despite the unjustified outcry of radical leftists. The court has not taken a final vote, nor have they made a ruling.

Or expression? These people are just plain nuts, my should not need to worry about someone expressing themselves being a big burly dude who feels like his feminine side wants to be seen. This is why Democrats should need to sign into every town they live in if they condone this kind of crap.

Validating dysphoria isn’t a treatment protocol but the opposite of one. Parents willing to butcher, even under an approved medical professional care, a minor child should face charges. We should stop pandering to this destruction.

The radical Democrats are the spawn of Satan, the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning, according to the Christ. We should never be surprised by the lies and nefarious schemes of the left. They will never be satisfied until they completely destroy our nation. Obama said that he wanted to transform our nation. We need to pray, repent, and turn back to Christ, the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

And don’t forget the ‘Furries’. They are asking for litter boxes in restrooms. I say we divide the US straight down the middle. Patriots and normal on one side. Criminals and insane on the other. Our side for God and Country, and her people. The other side … well, I’m at a loss to explain it. And build a wall with barbed wire in between.

If you notice, it’s (majority) the male that wants to use the female bathroom, join female sports, or use a female locker room. So far, I’ve never heard of a female wanting to do the opposite. That should tell you something. I know AMAC will probably block this. It’s not against men. Hey, I’m married and have 5 brothers. I’m just stating facts. This is not to offend real men. But even real men should look at the facts. It’s about truth.

… they don’t have a vision. Do they?

Devoid any semblance of substantive plan for growing America, fiscally and macro-economically illiterate, Biden’s geriatric specialists encharged the task of seeing to it he makes it to the restroom (e.g., the Easter bunny), lack for a fundamental grasp of the concept of irreversibility; why every Trump policy they’ve reversed, backfired.

Befuddled, they can’t get the toothpaste back in the tube, the only thing Democrats can think to do now are, (1) damage control, (2) giveaways; (3) pander to the whims of their special interest base.

The extent of the Clinton-Obama-Biden democrats’ critical thinking axiom, (4) blame-shifting; foisting blame for everything on the Russians. Morally bankrupt, they (5) lie straight through their teeth, relying upon their bestest little buddies in mainstream television news, for making their mendacity palatable.

Democrats well know, as do you, November’s going to be an epic bloodbath. No difference drowning in 8 feet or 300 feet of water, why not bet the farm?

So, they’re (6) throwing spaghetti against the wall, slamming bad policy, save who may, seeing what sticks.

Mindlessly reversing all of Presidents Trumps policies, the Biden Democrats erased all our precious wage gains, destroyed all our hard work making America great. But, then again, kudos for a job well done, that was exactly what the Biden democrats set out to do.

The Democrats like the idea, putting you in constant fear, that your children can’t even use a public restroom, without impending threat of being molested ever omnipresent.

Confusion which restroom to use is part ‘n parcel of the Biden Democrats’ indoctrination plan, to subvert your children, aberrance their formative years with sexual ambiguity.

Most Leftists are not only stubborn, myopic, and incompetent, they usually are aggressive bullies. Not too long ago, most fringe humans were happy just being left alone; however, now it’s become very woke to insist that the world (actually the US) must be 100% on board with whatever the Marxists are demanding. Those who still believe that healthy, natural sex is between a man and a woman are treated as if they are evil monsters. Heterosexuals don’t even have the right to think that same sex relationships are not normal. Forget about simple male v, female. The leftists insist that sexual identity is purely up to the unique quirks of individual humans. How long will it be before humans can individually consider themselves pets, plants, robots, etc.? What will this nonsense lead to? How can the United States of America possibly remain a Constitutional Republic?
