I had an interesting conversation on Facebook with a reader about how there are (significant?) numbers of individuals in the LGBTQ community who do not support the letters that follow LGB.
The thesis, synopsized, is that,
There are many lesbians and feminists who see men impersonating women while invading their women (female) only spaces and endeavors such as bathrooms. locker rooms, women’s shelters, women’s sports etc etc as the ultimate sin of the patriarchy. I am of the mind that we should all respect objective biology and prioritize it above a single individual’s personal subjective emotions.
You can follow the whole debate here. I’m just bringing it up to get to a more significant point. That the Democrat party’s agenda is about division and power. Yes, I did make that point (again) yesterday.
Democrat’s do not care about anything but power. Not you, not who you love, not your age, sex, color or creed, not where you are or where you came from, nor what you do or don’t do. Their only concern is if or how they can leverage an emotional message about any of that to advance government control and intrusion.
So where is this going?
“I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, but reproductive justice,” he said, inventing a new phrase for them to use. … What that means is that just because a woman or, let’s not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose.
“I absolutely would cover the right to have an abortion and more than that, everybody in this crowd and watching at home knows that in our country today, a person’s right to choose is under assault in places like Missouri and Alabama and Georgia.
That’s Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro at Dem Debate 1-a Wednesday night. He is drawing a red-line in slippery-slope sand for a transwomen’s right (to abortion) – paid for with tax dollars. Which makes sense because the odds are good that you paid for or will be paying for any transition medication, surgery, drug addiction or mental health therapy, methadone treatments (where permitted by law), and the funerary expenses when Ms. Mann kills
himself herself because none of that made “her” feel complete.
I’d watch for some vectoring by Planned Parenthood for tax dollars to transplant unborn babies into transwomen so they can then exercise their right to abortion. You laugh, you cry, but do you doubt?
Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Tranwoman Abortions
None of which is anywhere on the priority list of any average American.
When you got up this morning you were thinking coffee, shower, get dressed, check your email, read GraniteGrok, give the government authority to tax you to finance abortion for men. Probably not that last thing. But it was an actual issue, brought up by a Democrat candidate for President of the United States on a public debate stage on national television. He’s not alone.
Think back ten years and then look at what the Left fights for today and tell me you don’t see it. Legal fights over state and federal budget line items to fund a transwoman’s reproductive right (to abortion).
You’ll be a bigot for objecting! And yes, the “rights” promised to pre-existing so-called victim classes will be mowed over if it advances the Democrat Party Agenda. Because they do not care about you. All they care about is power.
