The SexRev Tipping Point, by Rod Dreher. The bathroom wars are
… not simply about accommodating minors who think they are transgendered. It is about radically changing the meaning of what it means to be a man, a woman, and a human being. We have gay marriage today because the meaning of sex and marriage has changed dramatically over the past 50 years. … Transgenderism is far more radical than homosexuality. But it’s already passing into the culture very quickly, driven by federal courts, the Obama administration, and popular media.
The goal of the transgender activists is “blow up the binary”, to confine the concepts of male and female to biology textbooks:
Trans activist Riki Wilchins, writing in the gay magazine The Advocate, says that the real goal that fellow gay and trans activists should be pushing for is “blowing up the binary.” Excerpt:
“What really needs to be contested here is not just our right to use bathrooms with dignity (which would personally be very welcome), but the entire underlying hetero-binary structuring of the world queers must inhabit.”
That is to say, they want to destroy the concepts of male and female entirely. This is what they’re after, and they’re not going to stop until it is accomplished. If you think the federal courts or Democratic administrations are going to stop it, you have a lot more faith than I do in the moral sanity of American elites.
The Western Roman empire fell because of a ‘contagion of homosexuality and effeminacy’, that made it easy pickings for barbarian hordes. Before that, Christianity’s rise from 40 followers to 6 million within three centuries probably had less to do with conversions that with higher birth rates, since the Christians rejected such pagan practices as polygamy and infanticide. Sex researchers have long posited that the gay proportion of society is limited by disease, as they spread and catch diseases more quickly.
Demography is destiny. What is “blowing up the binary” going to to do to Western civilization?
