There are several reasons why someone shouldn’t have an opinion about a topic. If one has absolutely no knowledge of the topic, it’s probably best they don’t speak on it until they become informed. If one’s opinion is a long-debunked position, i.e. the world is flat, it’s probably best to just sit that conversation out for a moment. But one’s sex is not a reason to not have an opinion.
But that’s just my opinion. You can take it or leave it. This kid would have definitely left it because he went in the complete opposite direction.
“I cannot say. I’m not a female. I’m not transgender. I’m not in these sports.”
I can’t say I agree with this young man. Okay, I can say I disagree with the premise that men, especially men who identify as men, should not have an opinion on female sports simply because they aren’t the ones competing in them. But aside from that, he was rather noncommittal with everything that it would be hard to disagree with much else.
Look, he seems like a nice kid. I’m sure he’ll do just fine in college and eventually drive his purple truck to whatever job he ends up with later (that job being contingent on whatever degree he’s pursuing … Hopefully, for his sake, something in STEM). But we have a real issue now, and that issue requires action to be taken now.
His noncommittal attitude notwithstanding, people must make up their minds about what is more important: the feelings of biological males who identify as women and rob biological females of accolades and opportunities or the women from whom those men are stealing those benefits.
I know where I stand, even though I’m a cisgender man. I’m sure I can guess where most of our readers stand. We need others […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
