Transgenderism has many conundrums. Are we all on a spectrum between 100 percent male and 100 percent female, or are we all just male or female? Should biological girls be obliged to accept biological boys who identify as female in their safe spaces at schools? Should two biological men who identify as women be recognised as lesbians?
Activists demand gender neutral language, sports, restrooms, change rooms, etc. This treats men and women as same-same, uniform… one shade of grey. Isn’t this the opposite of ‘diversity’?
Transgender laws make gender identity a ‘state-established belief’, like a state-established religion, creating deep conflicts with the vast majority of people who hold the biological view that their sex is fixed.
