It seems like every week throws up a new assault on normality.
This week The Australian reported on the introduction of the genderless prefix of Mx on government forms. This honorific is designed to be used alongside Mr, Miss, Ms, and Mrs for those who do not wish to reveal their gender and apparently has its origins in the United Kingdom.
For the record, I think it is ridiculous. If people don’t want to indicate their gender then they should just leave the option blank. However, I suspect such a simple solution might actually compromise the real agenda behind such moves.
This is just another ‘Trojan horse’ designed to deconstruct gender identity as part of a radical push toward neo-Marxist views.
One of the leaders of this push said as much. Roz Ward – co-ordinator of the (un) Safe Schools program and now transgender adviser to the radical Victorian government – said this in an address to the 2015 Marxism Conference:
“This push to fit people into these physical and social gender constructs that promote heterosexuality is still incredibly strong and reinforced through the judicial system, through the medical, you know, all of medicine, the media and all social institutions …
“Only Marxism provides both the theory and the practice of genuine human liberation …
“Marxism offers both the hope and the strategy needed to create a world where human sexuality, gender and how we relate to our bodies can blossom in extraordinarily new and amazing ways that we can only try to imagine today …
“Apart from social stigma and discrimination, almost every single structure in society is set up to accommodate only two possible genders, male or female…Everything from the toilets we use, the school uniforms, changing rooms, all official documents, passports, the process is that you go through airports, everything is divided into these two limited gender options.”
Make no mistake, the ‘don’t identify your gender choice’ isn't about not identifying your gender, it is about reclassifying gender to suit Marxist social engineering. We have seen a push in the United States for genderless bathrooms so the Mxs can choose wherever they want to go. Obama has even threatened to withdraw school funding from public schools that don’t allow ‘choice’.
I can’t imagine too many parents would be happy to have a 17-year-old boy changing in the girls change-room used by their daughter because the boy ‘identifies’ a certain way. How would any of us feel if a man walked into a ladies public toilet? Watch this video to find out!
While the UK and US governments may have fallen for it, I am deeply disappointed we are heading down the same path. It’s just another step in an attempt to deconstruct our established individual biological or societal identifiers.
And yet, the inconsistency and hypocrisy of the left is astounding in their approach. By their reckoning, it is wrong to use gender as an identifying characteristic and yet they openly encourage people to compartmentalise themselves by ethnicity, religion, sexuality and skin colour.
Identification alone by such measures is often not enough; they also demand specialist programs and policies be introduced as a means of support for the identity politics they promote whilst eschewing things like support for the traditional family.
It is a worrying trend that will ultimately further isolate individuals rather than unite them under nationhood. Public policy should be on the basis of need and the common good rather than on some characteristic that a neo-Marxist deems worthy.
