Kamala Harris Tries to Riff on Gender Ideology, and It Goes All Kinds of Wrong

A few days prior to this writing, I saw an article laying out the justification for Joe Biden’s decision to run for re-election in 2024. After all, that justification would have to be pretty darn convincing for Democrats to run an obviously senile individual who will be 82 years old on inauguration day. Given that, you might be asking what possible argument could exist for Biden to give it yet another go.


The answer is simple: Kamala Harris.

The vice president remains an anchor around her party’s neck, and despite Biden’s very visible failings, she somehow manages to make him seem preferable. How, you might ask? By delivering rants like this.

And most recently, they even want to eliminate classes that teach “gender ideology.” Well, so, what are we talking about here? Classes that teach women’s history? Women’s equality? The study of the fact that there are still only 25 women in the United States Senate in a body of 100?

Do you know that meme people are always sharing of the guy blinking and darting his eyes that is meant to signify being dumbfounded by what was just said? Yeah, I’m gonna need to dig that one up for this article. Hang on a sec.

Alright, let’s try this again. Does Kamala Devi Harris actually think that “gender ideology” in the context of schools is the study of women’s equality? Because that is not what the modern definition of gender ideology is. Rather, it’s a perverse, radical theory that presumes that gender is fluid and that men can become women, women can become men, and anyone can become a non-binary, nebulous nothing.


How do I know that? Because the very laws Harris decries in that speech are fighting against that specific ideology. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s a report about Texas’ recent attempt to ban gender ideology in schools.

“Parental rights are paramount to the safety and well-being of a child,” Patterson said in a Jan. 3 tweet introducing his bill. “Therefore, I filed HB 1155 to ensure no school teaches radical gender ideology to any child from K-8th grade, and where parents must review and sign off on any health-related services.”

Here’s what HB 631 and HB 1155, the two bills in question, would do.

Florida’s law prohibits schools from teaching about sexual orientation or gender identity from kindergarten through third grade. Both Texas bills mirror such a ban. Toth’s HB 631 would expand the restriction until fifth grade. Patterson’s HB 1155 would extend it to eighth grade.

Now, do you see anything in that description about not teaching women’s history? Is there anything in Florida’s anti-gender ideology law that bans the teaching of women’s history? What about the bill in Missouri? Or the law in Arkansas?

The answer is that not a single one of those laws or bills bans the teaching of or even addresses the issue of women’s history. Rather, they all target gender ideology in the context of the radical transgender movement and the sexualization of children. That is done for a very specific reason, i.e. to protect parental rights regarding what their children are taught about sexual orientation and transgenderism.


Yet, Kamala Harris apparently thinks gender ideology is about how many female senators there are. And while I’d normally chalk such a rant up to abject dishonesty, I think she really is just as ill-informed and terrible at her job as she appears. As I said, there’s a reason Biden is running again, and it’s not because his second-in-line is ready for battle. Harris is a liability, and that becomes more clear every single time she opens her mouth.
