In the never-ending culture war being waged by the rainbow coalition against morality and family values, a group of House Democrats have taken steps to codify the sexual abuse of children by introducing a “Transgender Bill of Rights” that moves the LGBT agenda one step closer to becoming the law of the land.
Proponents of the bill cited last week’s Supreme Court decision “overturning” Roe v. Wade to support the legislation (via TheHill.com):
The proposal, dubbed the “Transgender Bill of Rights,” would codify the Supreme Court’s 2020 Bostock v. Clayton County decision that protects employees against discrimination for being gay or transgender.
The proposal would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to explicitly include protections for gender identity and sex characteristics, expand access to gender-affirming care and ban conversion therapy.
It would also require the attorney general to designate a liaison dedicated to overseeing enforcement of civil rights for transgender people and invest in community services to prevent anti-transgender violence.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force, said in a statement that the resolution would ensure transgender people can lead “full, happy lives.”
“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” Jayapal said. (Emphasis mine)
Thanks to Donald Trump’s “conservative” appointments to the Supreme Court, justices ruled 6-3 in Bostock v. Clayton County to create a never-existed-before inalienable right to transgenderism; the majority opinion was written by none other than Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch. Specifically, the court determined that discriminating against individuals because of “sex” included sexual orientation and transgender status and therefor prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Supporters of the decision claimed that since the court wasn’t creating a constitutional right — merely retroactively reinterpreting an existing statute — Congress and the states were still free to legislate. The reality, however, is that by using the Civil Rights Act to support the decision, Gorsuch made the treatment of transgenders politically untouchable, which is why progressives are now trying to add gender identity to Title VII.
Federalizing the sexual abuse of children has been one of Joe Biden’s top priorities, and he has already taken steps to codify their abuse by expanding Title IX to protect the “right” of transgender students to access school bathrooms that match their gender identity and participate in school sports — a goal shared by the Transgender Bill of Rights.
Title IX protects students and school faculty from discrimination based on sex in education programs that receive federal financial assistance. If schools don’t comply with Title IX, they risk losing this money. It is enforced by the DOE’s Office of Civil Rights, and uses language similar to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act:
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
The Supreme Court has used interpretations of Title VII to “inform” interpretations of Title IX, and the Civil Rights Division of Biden’s Department of Justice has already released a three-page memo detailing how they will follow this same logic to enforce Biden’s expansion of Title IX:
“After considering the text of Title IX, Supreme Court caselaw, and developing jurisprudence in this area, the Division has determined that the best reading of Title IX’s prohibition on discrimination ‘on the basis of sex’ is that it includes discrimination on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation.”
Of course, this will be a moot point if the Transgender Bill of Rights becomes law.
I’ve shared many times in the past how the American College of Pediatricians issued a statement in May 2016 — when Barack Obama was “aggressively engaged” in federalizing the sexual abuse of children — that called transgenderism, at best, a sign of “confused thinking” and not a “genetic marker of a [biological] disorder.”
ACP called transgenderism a problem that exists in the mind and not the body and that “it should be treated as such,” and they concluded:
“Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.” (Emphasis mine)
Obama began codifying sexual child abuse by issuing a few mandates to schools across the country requiring them to use a transgender student’s chosen pronouns and to open bathrooms, locker rooms, overnight accommodations, and some sports teams to students based on their chosen gender identity. Joe Biden is simply picking up where his former boss left off.
Codifying sexual child abuse via the Transgender Bill of Rights isn’t a new idea; Congress has already taken steps in this direction with previous pro-LGBT legislation.
In March 2019, the House of Representatives introduced the Equality Act (H.R. 5) — a piece of legislation that also codifies the LGBT agenda by revising the Civil Rights Act — and passed it in May 2019. The bill stalled in the Senate, but when Joe Biden and the Democrats assumed control of Washingtom in 2020, the Equality Act was reintroduced and passed in February 2021.
Under the Equality Act, everyone is required to submit to the LGBT agenda, with churches and religious employers, organizations, and colleges afforded no exceptions whatsoever. “Religion is no excuse for discrimination when it comes to sexual orientation or gender identity,” said Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) when explaining the intention of the legislation.
Besides the clear and obvious threat to religious liberty, the Equality Act is loaded with unintended consequences so egregious that even voices within the pro-LGBT community oppose it. “It would eliminate women and girls as a coherent legal category worthy of civil rights protection,” said Julia Beck, a self-described radical lesbian feminist and the former law and policy co-chair for Baltimore’s LGBTQ Commission.
As pro-LGBT forces march on in their culture war against morality and traditional family values, it has become abundantly clear that our children have become targets for indoctrination into a life of sexual deviance and abuse, and one of the battlegrounds is the public schools.
Any way you look at it, whether through the Equality Act or the Transgender Bill of Rights, codifying and mandating sexual child abuse has been the goal of far-left progressives (along with Donald Trump and a few so-called conservatives) as part of a plan to make the LGBT agenda the supreme law of the land.
