Joe Biden’s ‘War on Women’: Equality Act to End Legal Recognition of Biological Sex

Joe Biden’s ‘War on Women’: Equality Act to End Legal Recognition of Biological Sex. By Susan Berry.

President Joe Biden released a statement Friday urging Congress to “swiftly pass” the Equality Act, a bill that would eliminate the legal recognition of male and female sex, cater to gender ideology, and designate protection for the unborn as “pregnancy” discrimination.

Ryan Anderson, president of Ethics & Public Policy Center:

It isn’t drafted as a shield to protect vulnerable minorities from unjust discrimination, but as a sword to persecute those who do not embrace new sexual and gender ideologies.

It sacrifices the equality, safety, and privacy of women, while privileging men who identify as women: If this bill becomes law, they’d have a civil right to spend the night in a battered women’s shelter, disrobe in a women’s locker room, and compete on a women’s sports team — even children at K-12 public schools.

Religious schools, adoption agencies, and other charities would face federal sanction for operating according to basic biology and mainstream Biblical teaching on sex and marriage. … Pope Francis would be treated as the legal equivalent of a Jim Crow segregationist. …

Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF):

While the Equality Act is being sold on promising good things for women, and on ending unfair treatment of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people — which almost everyone agrees are worthy and important goals — it’s poisoned with the destruction of the law’s ability to allow any accommodations for women on the basis of sex.

Ethics & Public Policy Center Fellow Mary Rice Hasson warned it would …

… [impose] ‘gender identity’ requirements that effectively snuff out the sex-based rights of females, endanger parental rights, and silence religious believers in the public square. …

If the Equality Act becomes law, children in every public school in America will be sold on a cult concept of the human person — that “who we are” is self-defined by feelings, regardless of biological sex. Female students will be forced into silence — or required to celebrate — when yesterday’s male classmate announces he “identifies” as a “girl” and demands to shower in the girls’ locker room, compete against her in sports, and claim for himself the hard-won rights of women.

Frail old Joe Biden just jumped the shark. Can’t see this being too popular, or what people want.
