Before we get into this morning’s segment on Talkback with Chuck Wilder, I wanted to double down on one of the points we made in the first story.
I am on record, many times, as saying I don't care about your sexuality. I don't care if you're gay. I don't care if you're trans. I don't care. Whatever you want to pursue to make yourself happy in that sphere have at it. Be fulfilled. Be who you are. I celebrate that. I want you to be happy.
But I don't care for the aggressive activism that sees trans protesters punching women who've been directly affected by that movement in the face; physically assaulting them. I'm talking about Riley Gaines in San Francisco. That's a step too far.
It's one thing to say, “Hey, accept me for who I am. Please recognize this.” It's absolutely another thing to say, “You have to not only accept me but you have to celebrate it every second of your life and be included in everything you do every second of the day.
That's bullshit. You're right to “throw a punch” ends where my nose begins. That's what individualism is all about; that's what freedom is all about.
When you start castigating people because they don't march in lockstep with your ideology then you're the asshole. Again, it's one thing to say, “Hey, try to understand who I am and accept me for who I am.” It's quite another to say, “You've got to get into my parade and march down the street with me and advocate and believe in every single thing I believe in otherwise you're a bigot; you're homophobic; you're xenophobic.”
That kind of bullying used to be abhorred by the people on the radical Left; it used to be rejected and condemned by the people on the Left in the mainstream. I don't see that happening today.
And as for the feminist movement, the women's movement, the #MeToo movement? You have men identifying as women who are coming into things that you fought for for almost 100 years, destroying it for biological women. Where the hell are you to say, “Hey! That's not right”?
If those in the trans and LGBTQ+ movement aren’t honest enough to understand that the biological differences between biological males and biological females are real; that differences are there in the muscle structure, in the physical structure – it's just real and honest science – if you're not honest enough to be able to acknowledge and recognize that then how do you expect me to accept and recognize what you would like me to recognize?
That street has to go both ways. It can't always just be your way or no way at all or you burn it down. That's what a 3-year-old does.
So, right now, to the whole trans movement: If you don’t take control of your movement so that you are not so far over the line people are afraid to speak, then you are the neo-fascists; you are the oppressors; you are the totalitarians.
Call me whatever you want. Your names mean nothing to me anymore because you've abused the privilege to communicate with me.
We've got to take a sharp turn in this country because we're losing it. It's supposed to be freedom and opportunity for all not just the loudest voice in the room.
Then, this morning’s segment on Talkback with Chuck Wilder…
