you can be a masculine woman or a feminine man, but that does not mean you’re any different gender, it is just your personality traits. So please stop making up all of these ‘genders’ to feel like you belong somewhere.
A man who loves make-up, dresses and other things stereotypically attributed to females is not a woman. He is a gender non conforming male. It takes more than lipstick and surgery to make you female. It takes biology.
A lot going on these days that’s more important than this. But two weeks ago, Lionel Shriver bemoaned millennials not being willing to defend the rights of neo-Nazis.
How did the left in the West come to embrace restriction, censorship and the imposition of an orthodoxy at least as tyrannical as the anti-Communist, pro-Christian conformism I grew up with? Liberals have ominously relabeled themselves “progressives,” forsaking a noun that had its roots in “liber,” meaning free. To progress is merely to go forward, and you can go forward into a pit.
