It’s now okay for a man to hit a woman. It’s now okay for a man to hit a woman. Actually this is a mixed martial arts league decision. That, in effect, is what a mixed martial arts league decided It allows a biological male, Fallon Fox, to fight as a woman when it allowed Fallon Fox, a biological male, to fight as a woman Simply because he identifies as one. What are the consequences of this decision? And the consequence of this decision? Fox sent female fighter Tamikka Brents to the hospital Fox led female player Tamika Brent into the hospital with a broken skull and a concussion. With a broken skull and a concussion. It took seven surgical staples to bind her wounds. Brents needed seven surgical staples to bind her wounds. The battered woman, a trained fighter herself, is a trained fighter herself, Comment on her match with Fox like this: said of her match with Fox, “I’ve never felt so overpowered in my life.” “I’ve never felt so overpowered in my life.” Twenty years ago, If a man hit a woman so hard that he sent her to the hospital, He’d be in prison.
Now he can get paid for it. Today we are told that male and female are one and the same. The denial of male-female differences has led to an astonishing belief: This denial of male-female differences has led to the astonishing belief That men and women are not born male or female; They are whatever gender they say they are. Facebook was crazy at this point. Facebook went so far It provides users with more than fifty genders to choose from as to offer its users over 50 genders to choose from.
Do you know what a “half boy” is? Know what a “demi-boy” is? I don’t know Me, neither. The idea that gender-identification is now a personal choice might sound enlightened to some, But it’s actually a very anti-scientific view Conflict with the basic facts of life: of one of the essential facts of life: Men and women are inherently different. Their brains are different, Their hormones are different, Their chromosomes are different, Of course, their bodies are also different and, of course, their bodies are different. No amount of peer-reviewed papers from gender studies departments can change this.
But that won’t stop the progressive elites They are active in our universities, news media, who run our universities, news media, Many of our biggest companies, and even our high schools and elementary schools from trying. For their efforts, women will pay an especially high price. This is because of the view that “men and women are the same” That’s because the men-and-women-are-the-same argument Invariably leads women to be judged against a male standard. Or in other words Or, to put it another way, To be more of a woman, a woman has to be more like a man. She has to want to have casual sex like a man; To serve in combat like a man; To pursue a career with single-minded intensity like a man. Of course, there are exceptions, But the overwhelming majority of women aren’t seeking casual sex; but the overwhelming majority of women aren’t seeking casual sex; They don’t have the physical strength of men; I don’t want to prioritize work as men, and don’t share the same work-life priorities as men. Ironically, Ironically, This quest for sameness is occurring at a time is getting more and more popular On the other side, science tells us more emphatically than before that men and women are different when science is telling us, more emphatically than ever, that we are different.
So, what your grandmother took for granted “Men and women are different” men and women are different Science recognizes this view science now confirms. But there is no room for science For example, in a toy store like Target or Toys R Us in, say, stores like Target or Toys R Us, Toys are no longer divided into the boy section and the girl section. Or in a North Carolina school district, Students can no longer be called “boys and girls” Can only be called “students” but only “students.” Or in college dorms, Mixed gender bathrooms and even co-ed bedrooms are becoming more and more common, where co-ed bathrooms and even co-ed bedrooms are increasingly common. For the tiny percentage of people who experience gender dysphoria, We should have nothing but compassion.
We should do everything we can to help them and protect their dignity, But we don’t need to overturn biologically defined sex differences to do so. But what’s happening in reality is: But that’s what’s happening. Using the wrong pronoun at the office might get you fired. In Canada, this may even lead to prosecution. In Canada, it might land you in court.
In mixed martial arts, as we have seen, It can lead to getting your head bashed in. Obviously these are only when we all have to succumb to Apparently, this is a small price to pay in a world It’s a small price when politically correct, where we must all genuflect to political correctness. Even after being hospitalized, Tamikka Brents knew she had to toe the PC line. When asked how she explained why she lost so badly to a man who said he was a woman, She said: “I can’t answer whether it’s because she was born a man or not, Because I’m not a doctor” because I’m not a doctor.” Vice Magazine, writing about the incident, But had no sympathy for Brents had no sympathy for Brent.
Why do they want it? Why should they? As they wrote: “…biological sex isn’t black and white.” As they wrote, “…biological sex isn’t black and white.” But in almost all practical examples, it is. But in virtually every instance, it is. The longer we allow the obvious to go unstated and undefended, The worse it will be For boys and girls, and for men and women. But especially for women. The sexes are different. We should not deny this fact Rather than trying to quash this reality, This can only lead to more needless confusion and suffering, not less, We should step back and marvel at it. And enjoy it. Male-female differences are among the most wonderful things in life. I am Ashley Maguire for PragerU and I’m Ashley McGuire for Prager University.
