We haven’t heard a lot about the War on Women lately. Has the left given up on that? Doubtful. I imagine we will hear a lot about it the minute the right says anything against Hillary Clinton. She is Historic! She is the first women ever nominated for POTUS and flawed as she is, and that is very, she is going to be using gender politics in the same way that Obama used race. Count on it.
In 2012 the left and their media managed to turn Romney’s every remark into something racist. It didn’t matter if it was nonsense. They twisted every word he said to fit their racist meme. All that mattered was painting him and the right as racists. In a “perception as reality world” it worked enough to be effective.
Personally I don’t like using the term “war” for problems that don’t require a person to carry a gun and dodge bullets from others also carrying guns. That’s war – declared or otherwise. Problems real or otherwise are not war.
Government types and their wordsmiths like to use the word war in some pretense they are doing something about problems. War on Drugs – War on Poverty – War on Whatever. We still have drugs and poverty so I guess in spite of the billions they’ve spent they lost those wars too.
A new War on Women is being waged as we speak. A war on their gender by the same left that would have you think the right is the enemy.
I first learned about this latest assault on women’s rights when I read a piece about a track meet in an obscure High School in Alaska. This latest assault on women came from the transgender crowd. Now it isn’t enough to put men, and if their DNA says they are men they are men no matter what nonsense is going on in their head, in bathrooms with women. Now young women, girls, must compete in athletics with men.
The article: A Girl Lost Her Race to a Boy Who Thinks He’s a Girl is a frightening sign of things to come in High Schools across this country. Girls will now be forced to compete agains boys.
There is a biological reason the girls and boys do not compete in the same contests. Separate but equal – right? Not anymore. Now boys with stronger bodies given them by nature will defeat girls who could, and do, compete with their own sex but cannot compete with boys. The boy in the story above evidently wasn’t good enough to compete with his own sex so now must look for medals in girl’s sport. Wasn’t all that good there either or he would have done better. Some of the girls, operating at a disadvantage still managed to defeat this wuss.
I’ve been called a bigot for my stand on Transgenders. I don’t care. Anyone with the plumbing that makes them a man needs to pee and compete with others with the same plumbing. Women should not have to deal with men in their bathrooms and at their track meets.
I didn’t understand why every father in this country wasn’t up in arms at the very idea of men in bathrooms and showers with their wives and daughters. Men sure aren’t what they once were in the role of husband and father. Or brothers or uncles…
Will it make a difference when the Soccer mom’s get involved? What will Momma Bears do when they see their daughters put at a biological disadvantage because some boy happens to “feel” like a girl at any given moment? Are mother’s going to protect their daughters more about sports than fathers did about privacy in bathrooms? I wouldn’t have thought so – or I would have thought they would be standing shoulder to shoulder as parents to see their girls safe and able to be the best that they can be. Now I’m not so sure that being PC isn’t more important to many parents than the welfare of their children.
I was a so-called “tomboy” when I was growing up. There came a time when I knew that no matter how hard I tried I could not throw a ball further or run faster than a boy my age and size. I resented it. When I whined about it to my parents I got the “life isn’t fair” lecture that was usual response to my whines.
Life isn’t fair. But we can work to make that unfairness not crush the spirit of our girls.
Most girls simply are not biologically capable of competing against boys in sports. It’s not bigotry, it’s science. In an attempt to make the world “fair” or what ever else is going on in crazy liberal heads they would war on our female children in the way they’ve been warring on our boy children for a generation.
Life ain’t fair. Girls are not as strong or as fast as boys. Mostly. Women can’t hit a golf ball as far as a man. Mostly. But now the Democrats, who claim to care so much about women getting a fair shake want to put men in bathrooms with little girls, men in locker rooms with young women and second rate, chicken-crap men and boys into female competitions since they cannot compete and win against their own gender. What next Tiger Woods on the ?
We’ve come a long way down the crazy road. Saying you are black suddenly makes you black and saying you’re female suddenly makes you female. And they call the Republicans the stupid party? Seems to me that stupid works for the GOP and crazy for the Dems. But that’s just me.
This morning I identify as an old white woman, by nightfall I may think I’m a young black man. In my day we would have called that dementia, today we call it liberalism.
