Felix Fernandes recently posted a video from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show in which the host is debating a DNC advisor about federal transgender guidance for schools across the country. The short clip is definitely worth watching in full:
The most glaring point of interest is the extremity of the left-wing position: a simple statement of belief about your sex can change your sex. The only objective consideration that the DNC advisor will entertain is the fact that a person in front of you is, at this moment, telling you that he/she is a woman/man. Plainly put, this is an elevation of subjective feeling over any tangible reality.
Perhaps more important in the long term, though, is the guy’s response when Carlson takes the obvious step of pointing out the consequences when verifiable biology is made immaterial in the face of personal assertions. Can I proclaim the same about my race? Answer: No. What happens if I apply for loans, scholarships, sports teams, et cetera, dedicated to those whose biology is different? Answer: That’s an irrelevant question.
Carlson’s interlocutor just won’t acknowledge the validity of contrary claims — claims so irrefutable that they would have to be the basis of any logical consideration. Instead, he breaks out the totalitarian catch phrases of the Left that bully people into submission, even having the audacity to charge Carlson with pseudoscience for asking how it all relates to biology.
To the extent that progressives are able to pull our society along in this emperor-has-no-genitals delusion, we’re signaling a willingness to gamble our entire civilization on the premise that the entire universe is a flexible social construct. A much healthier path is simply to note that people who express such views are plainly insane. They’ve already ruled out debate and common ground, so the wise choice is to side with reality.
