Liberals prefer to be called progressives these days, since the old term has acquired such a negative taint. But while “progressive” is an attempt to put a positive spin on a disastrous political belief system, it does allow us to check in every once in a while and see exactly what constitutes progress in the world of the left.
This week we have a charming bit of history being made in Oregon, where a young…individual…from Portland became the first person in U.S. history to be granted the legal designation, “agender.”
From NBC News:
The Multnomah County Court granted Patch a “General Judgment of Name and Sex Change” on March 10. In the same judgment, Patch was also allowed to change names, becoming mononymous — meaning only having one name instead of a given name and a surname.
““Even gender-neutral pronouns don’t feel as if they fit me. I feel no identity or closeness with any pronouns I’ve come across … What describes me is my name.””
According to the above report, we are to take the term “agender” as meaning “the absence of gender.” Not transgender. Not genderqueer. This is a new one, so please keep up with your current terms and definitions.
“As a kid, probably starting around age 6, gender didn’t make sense to me,” Patch told NBC News. “I was told ‘men were this, women were this.’ As a teen I learned about transgender people, and that didn’t seem like what I was. And then I learned about genderqueer, and that didn’t seem like what I was.”
Well, the important thing is that Patch finally found Patch’s identity and that a judge reinforced Patch’s delusion with a legal decision that defies all known…all known everything!
As insignificant as this may seem when compared to a lot of the stuff going on in our country, we’re almost convinced that this LGBTQTIAETC movement is the most dangerous trend in America. This is beyond mere political disagreement at this point. We are leaving science, tradition, common sense, and basic sanity behind in the pursuit of some fantasy Earth where there is no shared truth.
Maybe it’s not that serious. Maybe this is just society overcorrecting the too-strict gender expectations of the 20th century, where even being a “tomboy” was frowned upon. Maybe things will kind of self-correct before too long.
But we fear that tens of thousands of young Americans are going to be fooled into believing that they can change reality by simply getting enough people to agree with their delusion. That cannot lead to long-term happiness, and the suicide statistics bear this out.
Wear what you want, call yourself what you want, date who you want, but don’t get into a war with reality. You won’t win.
