Matt Walsh: Dear 'Progressive' Parents, Your Children Are Not Social Experiments
The world has gone pyscho. I trust this fact has not escaped your notice. And living as we do in this den of insanity, it can be difficult to decide which new example of craziness ought to command our attention. Some would say none of them should anymore. What is the point of focusing on this or that bit of madness? Everything and everyone is mad. We get it. Why dwell on the issue?
I am sympathetic to this point of view, and I even envy those who can live according to it, but I still don’t think that apathy and resignation are the morally correct answers. After all, there are victims to be considered and they deserve some sort of defense, however fruitless it may be. This is especially the case because the victims are so often children, which brings us here:
A child in Canada is set to become the first legally “genderless” human being. The baby’s mother and victimizer, Kori Doty, is fighting to ensure that the child is issued a birth certificate with no sex designation. It will not surprise you to learn that Kori is herself a mentally ill bearded woman who identifies as “non-binary trans,” whatever in Hell that means. (And I use the phrase “whatever in Hell” quite literally.) Kori apparently eschews all gender labels and prefers the pronoun “they,” as if there are two of her, God forbid. Naturally, many media reports have descended into indecipherable nonsense by dutifully referring to this single individual in the plural. An example paragraph from the Independent:
Kori Doty, who does not identify as either male or female and uses the pronoun “they”, says their eight-month-old baby has still not been granted a birth certificate because officials say a gender of either male or female must be registered.
Apparently, if a person doesn’t believe in using proper grammar, we are now morally obliged to use improper grammar when referring to them. We all get to come up with our own incoherent editorial guidelines and impose them on everyone around us. I wonder how far this can be taken. Would the Independent follow my instructions if I explained that I never want the words “the,” “then,” “is,” and “but” to appear in the same sentence as my name? Is that how it works now? And if I claim that I’m an albino giraffe from Venus, will they report it as fact without the slightest hint of irony?
