The headline is taken from an old television ad and accompanying jingle to help distinguish between two candy bars: Almond Joy and Mounds. We would interpret this to mean that sometimes one feels like a candy bar with a large nut, chocolate, and coconut, and sometimes you just want the coconut and chocolate. Such matters of taste and craving can be fluid and quickly changing. Clever and the jingle was catchy.
But should one’s legal sexual status, as it relates to legal documents, be as fluid as choosing a candy bar?
In Europe, the answer seems to be yes.
The website iamexpat.com says that German law (if approved by Parliament) will allow individuals to state their “sexual identification” on legal documents once a year. This necessity to bend the law apparently stems from the “right to a self-determined life”.
When does this right begin or end? Are there any limits to these “rights?”
For every right, there is a responsibility. What are the responsibilities of a “self-determined” life?
Maybe the Germans will instruct us.
What if I identify as Peter Pan? That is my determination of my life. Will I age or will I always be a child? If I think I can fly, do I need to contact the FAA and file a flight plan? What kind of a craft am I?
Hmmm…since sex and gender are fluid concepts, is once a year really often enough? It would seem that daily or hourly changes are more appropriate. Otherwise, one might be trapped inside another body for a year and that seems overly harsh.
The article goes on to say this simply gets German law up to speed with Denmark, Switzerland, and the country I think most appropriate to copy, Ithinkastan.
The idea that you really are what you think you are, and that this supplants DNA, hormones, and sexual organs, and what you previously thought you were; was first perfected in Ithinkastan, or at least I think so.
It has gone beyond demanding pronouns. Now legal documents that relate to gender, names, and descriptions, can be changed at will based on how you “feel” at least annually.
How is this going to work in practice? I would presume that “legal” documents are legal, and binding to the law, right?
So, let us suppose I forcibly penetrate a young girl against her consent. A description is put out by the police and I am arrested.
I should be able to claim I am female, if that is how I feel, and I would most assuredly feel that way, facing prosecution. Since I am now not the person described by the victim, I cannot be prosecuted since I am no longer that person, legally speaking. If I am really a female, I could not possibly commit the crime of which I am accused. The crime was committed by a male, and I no longer think of myself as male, and therefore the law must recognize I am another person. The crime was committed by someone else.
Or let us suppose, I want to compete on a girl’s athletic team. I can change my sexual preference and get on the team, right? That is now accepted in the US by the NCAA and prestigious Ivy League Colleges. So, is the aforementioned hypothetical that far-fetched?
Women prisoners are being impregnated by other “female” prisoners. Oh, so the example is not so far-fetched.
If I claim I am a woman, can I get lower insurance premiums because women live longer and thus I am entitled to the different actuarial table? This male swimmer for the University of Pennsylvania says he is a woman, how is his/her car insurance premium handled? Young women are not as reckless as drivers as males and often pay lower premiums.
What kind of havoc will gender-bending legal documents have on the law, actuarial science, and society at large?
Can I “identify” with different ages, and alter my birth certificate, as they now do with gender? If so, can I get Social Security at 22? Could I lower my age, become a minor, and thus have all my records sealed and get lesser penalties?
I mean, why should “self-determination” be limited to gender?
Can I get into medical school ahead of others, because my new gender/race/ethnic group is sought by recruitment boards seeking to fulfill their “diversity and inclusion” mandates? And since Facebook says there are 64 genders, can I keep rotating until I get the spot I want?
Seriously, why should “self-determination” be limited to gender? A whole subculture is developing of “furries”, or people that identify as cats and dogs.
So, if arrested, you could claim both different sex and a different species. That should throw the jury for a loop. If they don’t accept how you identify, they are clearly bigots of the worst sort.
We already have the case of people identifying with another race, and that did not end too well for the former Seattle head of the NAACP.
It seems the poor “woman” has had difficulty finding work. Why the difficulty of choosing a different race but you are celebrated if you choose a different gender, given the universal right to self-determination?
She was accused of being a “race faker.” Can one be a gender faker?
There used to be a concept regarding personal liberty that suggested, “you are free to swing your arms until it impacts my nose.”
It suggests toleration for a broad swath of aberrant behaviors, as long as they are done privately and do not impact the law and harm the public that does not wish to participate in the given quirk, fetish, or identification.
I really could care less what people do “in the privacy of their homes.” I feel sorry for their mental illness. But these gender activists are doing mischief with the law, trying to influence our children and culture, altering sports competitions, and harming other people and their livelihoods. They can ruin your bakery, have you de-platformed, and have you fired. They are harming us.
This now is impacting all of our “noses.”
Worse yet, the medical profession, especially psychiatrists and healthcare workers, are either ambivalent or defending this nonsense. And, to suggest you are what you “feel” is nonsense and not supported by any science until five minutes ago.
Sometimes you feel like a nut because that is precisely what you are.
Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.
Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.
Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about.
It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.
The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
