Transgender bathroom wars have nothing to do with civil rights

LGBT - Gender fluid

Google or Bing “LGBT” and “Strident Conservative” and you’ll see pages of news and opinion on how the political agenda of homosexual, bisexual and transgender groups have systematically destroyed American culture. But more than that, you’ll see how the movement has deceitfully used the rallying cry of “equality” as their motivation for the change they seek while, in the end, equality has nothing to do with it.

During the same-sex marriage debate we documented how the Supreme Court decision to constitutionally recognize the unnatural arrangement could eventually lead to the end of freedom of speech and freedom of religion as a consequence.

When we expressed our concerns over how the same-sex case could be used to redefine marriage in other ways, the LGBT activists cried “homophobe.” However, we documented in August 2015 new attempts to use the Obergefell v. Hodges decision as precedent to have polygamy legalized. And, under the guise of the “born that way” excuse used by homosexuals to defend their sexual preferences, there has been a renewed movement to legalize pedophilia.

Lately we’ve been dealing with the “T” part of the LGBT agenda. The Obama administration has “aggressively engaged” the Department of Education to actively promote the so-called right for boys to use the girls bathroom, locker room and showers under an unconstitutional application of Title IX under the Civil Rights Act.

And speaking of unconstitutional applications of the law, Obama’s Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against North Carolina yesterday for passing a “bathroom law” requiring the public to use facilities based on their genetics instead of their sexually-confused perceptions.

And just as was the case with same-sex marriage, the transgender agenda goes beyond cries of equality from the left, as we learn in an article from LifeSiteNews.com. In an article by Riki Wilchins for the homosexual publication The Advocate, who has undergone “sex change” surgery and is a far-left social change activist, we learn that the “bathroom wars” are just the first steps in the direction of a bigger goal.

There are many “genderqueer” or “non-binary” people, Wilchins wrote, pointing to a student who recently “came out” to President Obama as “non-binary” at a London town hall as a notable example.

“Non-binary” people don’t identify as male or female and they often want to be referred to as “they” or “hir” or “zer.” So the fact that there are even intimate facilities that reflect the “binary” truth about gender should change, Wilchins wrote.

In the eyes of LGBT advocates, the notion of only two genders (which one can pick, of course) is antiquated.

Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at the Family Research Council, interprets Wilchins’ article this way:

“The long-term goals of many LGBT activists are actually not just access to the restrooms of their preferred gender identity, but actually destroying the concept of gender or the separation of the genders altogether. They present this framework…that a transgender person is just born in the wrong body…[they say] the woman born in a man’s body is really a woman and therefore should be allowed to use the women’s room. But then, if you dig down…you find actually these acknowledgements that they want to do away with the gender binary altogether.”

Rob Dreher at The American Conservative issued this warning:

“They want to destroy the concepts of male and female entirely. This is what they’re after, and they’re not going to stop until it is accomplished.”

And Stella Morabito, senior contributor to The Federalist and an expert on cults and propaganda summed it up this way:

“What we are really talking about is the abolition of sex, and it is sex that the trans project is serving to abolish legally, under the guise of something called ‘the gender binary.’ Its endgame is a society in which everyone is legally de-sexed. No longer legally male or female. And once you basically redefine humanity as sexless you end up with a de-humanized society in which there can be no legal ‘mother’ or ‘father’ or ‘son’ or ‘daughter’ or ‘husband’ or ‘wife’ without permission from the State. Government documents are already erasing the terms. In such a society, the most intimate human relationships take a hit. The family ends up abolished.” (emphasis mine)

It’s time to be vigilant because our freedom to believe may not last much longer.
