PHILADELPHIA — It’s depravity writ small.
The Left’s insane crusade to include ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE in everything everywhere at all times without regard to public safety, appropriateness, decorum, or common decency is on display here at the Democratic National Convention in the Wells Fargo Center.
In a case of obnoxious virtue-signaling, there are “all-gender” restrooms at the convention site. They don’t appear to be mandatory YET.
I guess sex offenders have rights, too. We mustn’t deter them from their prey by imposing unwanted gender roles on them. That would be mean.
To be clear, I choose to characterize these unrest rooms as rape rooms because allowing big, strong men — whether they “identify” as men or women or octopusses — to relieve themselves alongside little girls and women is a proven recipe for disaster. These everything-goes facilities present a standing invitation to those seeking to commit sexual assaults. They paint a target on those who cannot defend themselves.
Speaking of targets, the ongoing boycott of Target stores because the company allows and encourages men to use women’s bathrooms, seems to working. The company’s stock price has been taking a well-deserved pounding. Rational Americans are making an example of Target by hurting the company’s bottom line. God bless them.
They know that this is not a trival matter.
It is not about the rights of gays, lesbians, or other people who for whatever reason choose to reject their sexual identity. Americans are free everywhere to use the public bathrooms corresponding to their biological sex.
It is about the norms that society needs to function. We should not turn American society upside-down in order to make a miniscule percentage of the population — transsexuals, transvestites, trans-gendereds — feel good about their own psychopathology. These people need help and moral support, not coddling.
Silicon Valley master of the universe Peter Thiel suggested last week at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland that the bathroom issue was unimportant. He’s wrong.
After telling GOP delegates he was proud to be “gay,” “a Republican,” and “an American,” he mocked a significant chunk of the conservative agenda.
“I don’t pretend to agree with every plank in our party’s platform,” he said. “But fake culture wars only distract us from economic decline, and nobody in this race is being honest about it except Donald Trump.”
“When I was a kid, the great debate was about how to defeat the Soviet Union, and we won,” Thiel said. “Now we are told that the great debate is about who gets to use which bathroom.”
It was a low point at the GOP convention but nobody at the Quicken Loans Arena seemed to notice.
