How could we figure it out even if we cared about gender? In short, if the ultimate source of reference is the self, and if no other self than the individual is a reference point, how can you know who or what you are? Whether adults realize it or not, the most important conversation today is not about gender, but about identity, as released from the confines of gender.Kuehne thinks this is a very bad thing, because it is part — indeed, perhaps the end point — of the total deconstruction of the relational bases of society and its refashioning to serve the needs of the sovereign Self. The reason other feminists don't like me is that I criticize the movement, explaining that it needs a correction.Feminism has betrayed women, alienated men and women, replaced dialogue with political correctness.Biology isn’t bigotry, and we need a sober and honest assessment of the human costs of getting human nature wrong,” said Anderson, author of the forthcoming book on transgenderism, “When Harry Became Sally.” Paglia also condemned calls for “special rights, protections, or privileges” for transgender men and women: In a democracy, everyone, no matter how nonconformist or eccentric, should be free from harassment and abuse.
But most are still missing what’s most important: while today’s conversations push the boundaries of how we understand gender, they don’t understand that this brave new world of identity is about more than gender.
Ryan Anderson, a senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation, agrees about the importance of biology to the discussion.
“The best biology, psychology, and philosophy all support an understanding of sex as a bodily reality, and of gender as a social manifestation of bodily sex.
Paglia says that this is happening right now, and that there’s this tremendous “disconnect” between a culture that’s infatuated with transgenderism, and “what’s going on ‘out there’.” She sees it as “ominous.” And she’s right to. Again and again I say unto you: if you don’t like the Religious Right, wait till you get the Post-Religious Right.
The post-Christian people who are coming don’t give a damn about your feelings.
