A Transgender Seven-Year-Old?

Progressivism is increasingly an ideology characterized by rank hypocrisy and internal contradictions.

Consider the following: Progressives claim to believe in “tolerance” above all else. But it is they who have proved to be the worst offenders when it comes to demonizing and vilifying those who deviate one iota from the shape-shifting progressive orthodoxy. The same progressives who incessantly talk about the value of “dialogue” are those who have spawned so-called cancel culture, in which mobs of their confreres conscientiously strive to drum out of polite society anyone who dares say – or believe – anything that is less than 100% “woke.”

Progressives champion the value of “modern science,” and decry religious fundamentalists. But then they turn around and demand immediate and unquestioning acquiescence to the pseudo-mysticism of transgenderism, which claims a person can change their gender merely by thinking it is so. If you dare to complain that none of this is scientifically verifiable, and indeed flagrantly contradicted by everything we know about biological sex, you will be summarily dismissed as a transphobe and a bigot.   ….
