There can be no real diversity without equality and freedom, and the United States of America has been attempting to prove that for nearly the entirety of her existence.
I say “nearly” because we all know that there have been some inexcusable and nefarious periods in our history where things were not up to snuff. Now, however, it does seem that a vast majority of the nation is on the right track, adhering to a Constitutional idea of equality.
The exception to this rule comes to us from the far left, however, where forced diversity and the idea of divisional politicking has created a number of opportunities to warp the wording of the Constitution itself. Instead of “all are created equal”, the left seems hellbent on installing an ideology more akin to “we will make everyone’s results equal” – a dangerous precedent that de-prioritizes hard work and progress in lieu of comfort and entitlement.
In order to continue to bolster support for this ideology, the left is forced to segregate the population into tidy, little voting segments, telling each one of the so-called “snowflakes” that they are indeed unique, special, and deserving of wealth and fame. One of the latest groups to be segregated in such a manner are those identifying as “transgender”, “non-binary”, or belong to other less common gender groups.
The problem here lies in the fact that, after this focus was sharpened in the last few months of the Obama administration, other human rights advocacy groups began to feel as though they were being shoved aside by the democrats in favor of their new pet project.
Now, one of Canada’s most prominent advocates of liberty is pushing back against her government and Twitter for what she considers complete and utter absurdity in their “hate speech” laws, specifically in the realm of transgenderism.
On Thursday, an ardent Canadian feminist who has supported the #MeToo movement but has opposed a bill that would encode gender identity and gender expression into Canadian law furiously revealed that Twitter wouldn’t let her say that men are not women.Advertisement - story continues below
Meghan Murphy, who founded the feminist blog and podcast Feminist Current in 2012, had tweeted in October, “Men aren’t women tho,” and “How are transwomen not men? What is the difference between men and transwomen?”
This didn’t sit well with Twitter, apparently.
On Thursday, Murphy revealed on Twitter that she had been notified by Twitter that her language in the tweet had violated their rules against hateful conduct.
Murphy was furious, and tweeted, “This is f**king bullshit @twitter. I’m not allowed to say that men aren’t women or ask questions about the notion of transgenderism at all anymore? That a multi billion dollar company is censoring BASIC FACTS and silencing people who ask questions about this dogma is INSANE.”
Murphy has long been an opponent to the government’s involvement in gender identification, issuing similar warnings to what Canadian author and lecturer Jordan Peterson has expressed concerns about in the past.
When she appeared before the Canadian Senate in 2017 to oppose bill C-16, which encoded gender identity and gender expression into Canadian law, Murphy stated, “Treating gender as though it is either internal or a personal choice is dangerous and completely misunderstands how and why women are oppressed under patriarchy as a class of people. … The rights of women and girls are being pushed aside to accommodate a trend.”
