In 1990 I began my research into the gender ideology. At first most people, including friends and associates, really didn’t see the problem. It all seemed so outlandish. The gender ideologues promoted the idea that all the differences –except the obvious physical ones — were artificial social constructions and could and should be eliminated so that men and women would participate in every activity in society in statistically equal numbers. The biological reality of male and female should have no social recognition. Who could take it seriously? Didn’t everyone know men and women were naturally different?
The first demand of the gender ideologues was for unlimited access to abortion, since the burden of pregnancy falls only on women. Abortion would allow both women and men to have sex without having to carry a child to term. The next demand was for redefining marriage so that sex difference shouldn’t matter and two men or two women could call their relationships a marriage. In spite of the evidence to the contrary, the ideologues insisted that children didn’t need a mother and a father. Recently, there has been a push to say that biology should be irrelevant and a man, who may or may not have surgical alterations, can decide he is a woman and use women’s restrooms or locker rooms. Don’t expect logical consistency from those who start by denying reality.
I am pleased to see how pro-family people are finally recognizing that behind the various attacks on life, marriage, and reality, there is a dangerous ideology. Unfortunately the gender ideologues are firmly entrenched in the universities and government and so the battle for common sense is more difficult than it might have been had the danger been recognized sooner.
Still it is encouraging to see my writings quoted. It is exciting to see the next generation of defenders of the truth rising up to carry on the battle. In spite of the odds I am convinced that in the end the truth will prevail.
