It is not enough that we had to see Bruce Jenner dressed as a woman in our grocery checkout lines this week. We are now being told by the media that we better not joke about the new female Bruce. To be sure they had a villain, they dug up a video of Mike Huckabee making a comment about gender confused boys being allowed to go in the girl's locker room. Huckabee's comments were from a speech he made all the way back in February.
I just watched a CNN interview where the comparisons are already being made between the pilgrimage of the gay community and transgenders. I don't want to hear that 'times have changed.' Who on earth ten years ago would have approved of a gender confused boy being in the girls bathroom or locker room?
The sick liberals keep moving the goals posts of morality, and those that don't go along are considered haters. I have no idea what is going on with Bruce Jenner, and I should add that many in the PR community still wonder if this is all just a money-making stunt. Let's not forget that Bruce Jenner is in the cast of a reality show - a show that makes its stock and trade being provocative. Jenner is not a private citizen trying to quietly live his life. The same media that is telling us that we should not look cross-eyed at all of this, is parading Jenner around like a carnival sideshow for just this very reason. Don't sell me a ticket to see the bearded lady and then call me insensitive to bearded ladies when I gasp at your freak show.
Bruce's 'transition' whether real or not, is clearly dysfunctional in my view. Even those within the psychiatric community are widely divided on the long term effects of gender transition. Not to mention that there is no agreement on what transgender means. To claim transgender status, you can simply perceive yourself as a different gender. You don't even need to buy a new wardrobe...
By the way, Huckabee is right. California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law AB1266 in 2013. The law gives students the right “to participate in sex-segregated programs, activities and facilities” based on their self-perception of gender. It also made national news when Planet Fitness made it clear that their locker rooms would follow a similar policy. These are just two examples of how public policy is making accommodations for the new cause celebre, and it is just the beginning.
Even if we all decide to go along with this, how will we know when someone claims transgender status simply because they are a sexual deviant? No, Mike Huckabee is not an insensitive buffoon, he is just not drinking the Kool-Aid, nor am I.
