The Horrifying Evidence: Transgender Totalitarianism, by Hal Mayer.
On April 8, 2019, a so-called “human rights tribunal” in Canada ruled that a Christian must pay $55,000 to a provincial politician because he referred to this politician as a “biological male” in a political pamphlet. The politician in question, Morgane Oger (born Ronan Oger), is a biological male. However, he has since “transitioned,” and is living his life as a “transgender woman.” According to the decision, Bill Whatcott must compensate Oger for injuring the latter’s “dignity, feelings and self-respect.”
The chilling precedent set by this case can be illustrated by one flabbergasting fact: The judge in the case refused to allow Whatcott’s lawyer to offer testimony showing that, in point of fact, Oger is a biological male. According to the judge, “The ‘truth’ of [Whatcott’s] statements in the flyer is not a defense.” As such, said the judge, “evidence is simply not relevant to the legal issue…”
Read that again. Let it sink in. Truth is not a defense. Evidence doesn’t matter. What matters is whether someone’s feelings were hurt. And thus, with a stroke of the pen, the rule of law is replaced with the rule of feelings. …
This was always the end-goal of radical LGBT activism: the opposition must be silenced. And until it is legally silenced, it must be socially shamed. …
Some of these laws are already on the books in America, with New York City calling for fines up to $250,000 for “misgendering” someone in the workplace. (This was put in place in 2015.) And in 2016, “A transgender schoolteacher in Oregon won a $60,000 settlement from a school district after co-workers allegedly failed to address the teacher by the proper gender pronouns.”
And of course if the shoe were on the other foot and a Christian were to claim their “dignity, feelings and self-respect” were offended by someone hostile to Christianity, they would NOT get the same treatment as this transgender person did.
The matter is clear. If you do not go along with the radical Leftist agenda of political correctness and virtue signaling, if you are a conservative, a Christian, or (horror of horrors) a white male, then you are not worthy of basic human rights and will be declared to be an “un-person” by the powers-that-be and subjected to soviet-style ‘internal exile’.
