Gender identity is in bold print, all caps in today’s headlines, as well as cranked to 11 in soundbites, forcing all to sit up and pay attention. As a recap, Truth and Action has synopsised exactly what one means by transgender in the following:
Despite making up a very small percentage of the United States population, transgender people — and transgender rights — have been in the news quite a bit lately. The heaviest estimates indicate that 1/400 Americans are transgender. Transgender is not to be confused with transsexual — a term denoting someone who has actually had surgery to change their sexual appearance. To be considered transgender, all one has to do is “identify” as the opposite gender.
The differences between sex and gender have largely been lost on the people advocating for “transgender rights” — or the right for men who identify as women (and vice versa) to be able to use a different bathroom. Sex — being the biological differences between male and female — is the determining factor when one designs restroom facilities. Gender — being the social and cultural roles traditionally associated with sex — does not actually factor into the practicality of restroom use.
The trouble with the loudmouth progressives and the amplified voices of 1/400th of the population is that it has silenced the voices of the children who are in fact harmed by the gender identity narrative and Target’s incoherent policy that allows penises covered by a skirt into the lady’s room.
