How The Transgender Crusade Made Me Rethink My Support For Gay Marriage

The Left has shown the totalitarian manner in which it exacts support, or at least silence, from everyday Americans. Gay marriage was just a wedge.

Over the course of the last few months, whenever I write or tweet anything, on any topic, I usually receive a caustic social media response about my position on transgenderism. These trolls post links to my tweets about the subject and screenshots, as if showing me my own recent opinion is some sort of gotcha. These individuals even send tweets to my husband and employers, perhaps in hope that they will use their power over me to get my opinion in check with The Approved Position.

One Twitter follower who “favorited” a tweet of mine about my view on transgenderism even received an email from a stranger demanding to know if her decision to “favorite” my tweet meant she agreed with me. I’ve been called every name in the book: hateful, bigoted, transphobic, etc. All for having a belief that was utterly uncontroversial just three years ago: men are born with penises, women are born with vaginas, and, to quote the great Ben Shapiro, facts don’t care about your feelings.

    The headline should read, “I’m A Stupid Woman Who Should Never Have Been Allowed To Vote.”

    As a regular user of the bathroom, I have yet to pass transgender bullshit.

    You only have to look at the way the left has gotten what it wants in the past,to know that this is how they expand their power. People often have no idea how they are falling into their trap until it is too late. I will never accept LGBT as acceptable or requiring any change in my beliefs about it. If is only a sign to me that our society is collapsing, We are showing exactly the same characteristics of the fall of the Roman Empire., when it fell.
