Minnesota’s Transgender Policy: Schools as Twilight Zones

Today at the Federalist I write about how the Minnesota State High School League wants to inject gender politics into school sports.  It’s quite an overreach and an assault on families.  And it’s a top agenda item for the transgender lobby, which is pushing it hard. The idea is to allow students to play on either a boys or girls team, depending on their “gender identity,” not their biological sex which is rooted in physical reality.

Unfortunately, we live in an age in which we are compelled to point out the obvious because so many have become detached from physical reality, including folks who are just plain tired and wish to bury their head in the sand hoping it will all go away.  It won’t go away on its own.  We need to confront assaults on reality and common sense whenever they’re imposed on us.  Otherwise we end up in the Twilight Zone.  Down the rabbit hole.  And the world will just keep getting more surreal and less healthy for us and our children.

The MSHSL plans to vote on this policy on Thursday morning, December 4 at 9:30.  The place is the MSHSL Board Room at 2100 Freeway Blvd., Brooklyn Center, MN  You can get more details by clicking here.  If you are concerned about it and in the area, it’s definitely worth showing up, perhaps with a sign or placard to express opposition.

The other side — flush with cash and media support — has always depended on projecting a manufactured illusion of support, always way disproportionate to any actual level of public support.  Be prepared for that.

In my article, I list 12 reasons why the MSHSL is a terrible idea (for those who need to hear them):

  1. It’s totally anti-privacy.
  2. It drives children to consider physically unhealthy and drastic, irreversible options.
  3. It encourages children to reject their bodies and discourages children from accepting their bodies.
  4. It’s psychologically destabilizing.
  5. It attacks the child-parent relationship.
  6. It shows no respect for child development.
  7. It’s totally anti-Title IX.
  8. It promotes a double standard about rights and responsibilities.
  9. It contributes to destruction of any universal code of human dignity.
  10. It creates unprotected categories for bullying.
  11. Conscience protections are a lie.
  12. It assaults independent thought and enforces cult-like conformity.
