It’s happening with astonishing speed.
The radical left has moved from the redefinition of marriage to the nullification of gender. If you feel that you are a woman, then justice demands that you and your penis have the right to use the women’s restroom.
Those who disagree are labeled bigots. Giant corporations buckle under pressure from the left for fear of violence and boycotts. A Target in Florida confirmed that men who feel that they are women can use the women’s bathroom.
Pop stars Nick Joans and Demi Lovato have joined a growing list of celebrities who have cancelled concerts in North Carolina over the state’s passage of HB 2, a law governing public restrooms.
As always, the left seeks to demonize and then destroy those who disagree with their increasingly hysterical demands.
The Modesty Factor
Far too many Conservatives have critiqued the transgender bathroom wars on the basis of safety. They point out, quite correctly, that criminal sexual opportunists will use this movement to gain entry to female bathrooms and attack women.
This is obvious.
But why do we have to make that argument?
Why can’t we simply say the obvious: Men do not belong in women’s bathrooms. And women do not belong in men’s restrooms. Because most people have an ingrained sense of modesty.
Public bathrooms are still private spaces. And that privacy should be respected.
The other day, we took a family trip to the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City. Because it is Passover and religious Jewish schools are closed for vacation, there were dozens of Orthodox and Hasidic families enjoying the excellent exhibits.
Eight Hasidic teenage girls stood on the Center’s observation deck. They were taking in the view and chatting excitedly in Yiddish. Because I am Orthodox I have a good sense of their everyday lives, where modesty of dress, speech and deportment are of supreme importance.
I tried to imagine how these girls would react if they encountered a man in a public bathroom. They would be horrified and quite properly shamed to the core.
Of course, you do not have to be Hasidic to have a sense of decency and modesty.
I have a close friend who was born into the wrong religion. She was raised Christian, but has been drawn to Judaism for many years. So deep are her feelings that she has internalized the way Orthodox Jews think and speak. In fact, my friend knows more Torah and ritual than most American Jews. And her love for Israel is right up there on the Jabotinsky scale.
My friend feels Jewish. But she is not Jewish.
There are only two ways to be Jewish: Through matrilineal descent or formal conversion. When she converts my friend will become Jewish.
Her chromosomes are not in play.
A man can genuinely feel that he is a woman, but he is a man — with a tragic mental illness.
He can have surgery, chop off his penis, take hormones, and get breast implants. But his chromosomes are intact. He is now a man who has mutilated his body.
The science is, as the left likes to say, settled.
And Finally, Defining Normal
The left claims to care about the oppressed. But, in truth, the left seeks to balkanize America by creating and catering to carefully cultivated victim groups. The left then plays one group off the next in a cynical game of thrones designed to replace family with centralized government. Not content to force abnormal behavior upon society, the left demands and enforces (through intimidation and economic warfare) a level of conformity that would leave Mao giddy with admiration.
At the moment, men and women who are sexually confused are at the top of the leftist heap of victims. Next come homosexuals, Muslims, women of color, then maybe white women. White Christian men and women are actively despised. Black Conservatives are treated like heretics. Torah Jews and the unborn are less than zero.
To fight this vicious cultural revolution Seraphic Secret suggests you write to Target and all corporations who allow men into women’s bathrooms and let them know that you will boycott their store. Make your feelings loud and vocal against all those who seek to elevate the abnormal.
And when some genius from the left challenges you to define normal, explain that non-normative is any lifestyle that, if practiced by a majority of people, would lead to a subversion of Judeo/Christian civilization.
