Transgenderism a much more profound ‘big lie’ at work: editorial

In a bold opinion piece that would likely get folks booted from Twitter, the Washington Examiner has fearlessly claimed that transgender ideology is the real “big lie” Americans are being fed in this “modern life.”

In a Monday article entitled, “Equality Not Elitism: Make transgender ideology expensive,” the Examiner argued that while Democrats will tell you former President Donald Trump’s insistence that the 2020 election was stolen from him is the “big lie” that has threatened the very fabric of our democracy, there is “a much more profound big lie at work in modern life — that a man can become a woman by sheer force of either his will or his own delusions.”

It’s a fearless stand to take in a world that went in the blink of an eye from canceling you for “dead-naming” a trans person to inviting kids into bars to place dollar bills into the bedazzled thongs of gyrating drag queens.

But it’s precisely that insane escalation that has prompted the Examiner to urge its readers to “see through the lie.”

“Transgender ideology has been fully embraced by a deranged news media and other unmoored cultural institutions only very recently,” the Examiner wrote. “New reasons keep arising that show the urgency of forcefully rejecting it.”

“Transgenderism is a lie that says your everyday experience of humanity, and all of the habits you have naturally developed from that experience, are but illusions,” the paper continued. “As hard as so many have tried to force this nonsense on you, you can still trust your senses, think for yourself, and see through the lie.”

To “save civilization from such nonsense,” the Examiner said, we must look to the legal system.

As an example, the editors of the conservative news outlet pointed to a California policy that allows incarcerated men to be housed with female inmates if they identify as a woman.

“This cohabitation arrangement based on the flimsy notion of ‘gender identity’ has already led to sexual assaults against female inmates” who are involved in a lawsuit brought by the notoriously liberal Women’s Liberation Front (WLF) alleging that the policy endangers biological women.

One of the plaintiffs in the case is Krystal Gonzalez, who was allegedly “assaulted by a male inmate who identifies as a woman and has a penis.”

“Krystal does not believe that women have penises, and the psychological distress caused by her assault is exacerbated by the prison’s refusal to acknowledge the sex of her perpetrator,” the complaint claimed.

For daring to represent women like Krystal, the WLF “has reportedly been excluded from fundraising websites GoFundMe and GiveButter.”

“Those doing business with such websites should think carefully about with whom they are doing business — people so timid and ignorant that they would rather push obvious and enormous lies about day-to-day existence than allow others to speak the truth,” the Examiner cautioned readers.

The editors pulled zero punches.

“Men cannot have babies,” they state unequivocally. “Women do not have penises. It used to be that every kindergartner understood this, but today, even adults fear to speak the truth.”

Demanding privacy in changing rooms and bathrooms takes “even more courage,” according to the Examiner, which points to the University of Pennsylvania and transgender athlete Lia Thomas as an example of the undoing of progress.

The ability to pump breast milk and breastfeed in a safe, private space, the editors argue, has allowed new mothers to be “a bigger part of society.” And for teenage girls coping with their first menstrual cycles at school, a girls-only bathroom is a barrier to humiliation.

“Female privacy represents progress — it removes what had in earlier days been obstacles to female education and professional advancement,” the paper said. “This privacy is meant to exclude men, even those males who adopt stereotypically effeminate affectations and say they are women. But this progress is currently being undone.”

With respect to Lia Thomas, for example, “university administrators ignored and even criticized their complaints about being exposed to their teammate Lia Thomas’s male genitalia in the female locker room before and after every practice and meet.”

“This is sexual harassment by any definition,” noted the editors.

The solution, the brave editors suggest, is to sue the wokeness out of any institution that robs women of their right to privacy.

“This is one way to make wokeness a prohibitively expensive luxury,” the Examiner stated.

“Those who defend housing male inmates with female inmates probably think they are doing something good,” the newspaper conceded. “So, perhaps, do Loudoun County’s lying school board members, who helped make possible one rape and one sexual assault in their school bathrooms by allowing a boy wearing a skirt to enter the girls’ restroom. The oft-invoked trope is that they are somehow making teenagers feel less awkward about their gender confusion. But what they’re really doing is rejecting common sense and endangering girls’ and women’s lives and well-being.”
