Everyone knows the political left disdains men — at least, white heterosexual men who aren’t confused about their sex. But it also has a serious misogyny problem. For all the trumpeting of women’s rights, leftist policies frequently demean, disempower, or even endanger women.
Women are expected to shoulder burdens not imposed on men, all to promote what’s touted as a greater public good. Besides, is there anything more dismissive and denigrating of women’s value and humanity than referring to them as “menstruators,” “birthing units,” or “uterus owners”?
1. Transgender Policies Erase Women
Much of the left’s misogyny arises from the sudden “transgender” contagion. Trans-accommodating policies have real victims, in addition to the ultimate victimization of the gender-dysphoric. Usually if not always, those other victims are women.
When biological males compete on women’s and girls’ sports teams – as happens in Connecticut high school track competitions – female athletes find themselves “on the sidelines instead of the podium.” If these girls are deprived of not only the thrill of victory but also college scholarships, the trans lobby argues, it’s a price they should be willing to pay for the male athletes’ idea of justice.
Other accommodations of the trans cult endanger women’s physical and psychological health. The institutional left insists trans-identifying males must be allowed into private female facilities such as restrooms and locker rooms, over the objections of women and girls. Obviously, a predator could easily feign a trans identity to gain access to such spaces.
Beyond that danger, women have a basic, self-protective unwillingness to expose their bodies and privacy to any random man, regardless of his intent. As numbers for sexual assaults are alarmingly high and sex trafficking is on the rise, is it really sensible to teach girls male nudity in their presence is normal?
The issue isn’t limited to bathrooms. President Biden plans to force federally funded women’s shelters to admit biological males, and California now allows male prisoners to transfer to women’s prisons even with no surgical procedures.
Leftist lawmakers apparently can’t grasp the problems with such a policy. British officials couldn’t either, but now
