Black Americans overwhelmingly reject claim there are more then two genders, survey finds

A new survey found that the vast majority of blacks — more than nine out of 10 — say there are only two human sexes, male and female, a direct rejection of claims made by LGBTQ and transgender activists.

Only three of the 150 blacks surveyed by Rasmussen Reports said they “strongly” agreed with the claim that there are more “genders” than simply male or female. Of those, however, 102 strongly denied the assertion, “which is a core element of the transgender ideology,” Breitbart News reported, citing the survey’s results.

In all, the pollster noted, just 8 percent of the total number of black Americans surveyed said they disagreed “strongly” or “somewhat” with this claim: “There are [only] two genders, male and female.” Eighty-two percent of the respondents agreed that there are just two sexes — 68 percent strongly and 14 percent somewhat.

“The respondents — nearly all of whom vote Democrat — were sharply different from the pro-transgender views of progressives who direct many of the party’s policies,” the outlet reported. “Overall, 31 percent of Democrats embraced the claim that there are multiple genders — although 61 percent of Democrats disagreed with that transgender claim.”

The issue of transgenderism has been embraced by the Democratic Party, but it continues to poll poorly among some of the party’s key demographics. Hispanics also have pushed back on the agenda as well as the use of the genderless term “Latinx,” largely because Spanish is a gender-specific language.

Earlier this month, a Democratic polling firm, Bendixen & Amandi International, found that the term is not an effective outreach to Hispanic communities and that it essentially turns off many Latino voters.

“Does the use of the term LatinX to describe the Hispanic or Latina(o) community bother or offend you?” the survey asked. Of the respondents, 40 percent said yes, 57 percent said no, and 3 percent either did not know or had no answer.

Of the ‘yes’ responses, one-in-five (20 percent) said the term bothered them quite a bit, with 11 percent saying it bothered them somewhat and 9 percent saying it bothered them a little bit.

“Those aren’t landslide results to either question, but in a politically divided country where countless local, state, and federal elections are decided by single-digit margins, one single word offending 40 percent of a large population — not to mention the 30 percent who said they’re less likely to vote for someone who uses it — is a warning sign for Democrats,” Mediaite noted in response to the results.

In a follow-up interview with Politico to discuss the results of the survey, Fernand Amandi noted: “Why are we using a word that is preferred by only 2 percent, but offends as many as 40 percent of those voters we want to win?”

Meanwhile, Republicans have largely rejected the transgender ideology of more than two sexes, and it appears to be paying dividends: More Hispanics and blacks are identifying with GOP cultural norms and policies than those embraced by Democrats, according to recent polling.

The Rasmussen survey, for instance, also found that most swing-voting Independents also do not agree with gender-bending claims of there being more than two sexes.
