Don't take my word for it.
...“In response to my questioning, Pope Francis said, ‘Gender ideology is demonic!’” Laun wrote in his essay, adding that the pope was not exaggerating in his comment.
“Indeed, gender ideology is the destruction of persons, which is why Pope Francis was justified in calling it demonic,” he said.
Writing of gender ideology, Bishop Laun explained that “the core thesis of this sick product of reason is the end result of a radical feminism which the homosexual lobby has made its own.”
“It asserts that there are not only Man and Woman, but also other ‘genders’. And furthermore: every person can choose his or her gender,” he added....
Understand that a 'product of reason' in this sense is actually ir-rational because it denies 'essence.'
..."According to the biblical creation account, being created by God as male and female pertains to the essence of the human creature. This duality is an essential aspect of what being human is all about, as ordained by God. This very duality as something previously given is what is now disputed. The words of the creation account: “male and female he created them” (Gen 1:27) no longer apply. No, what applies now is this: it was not God who created them male and female – hitherto society did this, now we decide for ourselves. Man and woman as created realities, as the nature of the human being, no longer exist. Man calls his nature into question..."---Benedict XVI
This "gender" ideology--a construct fashioned in Hell by the father of lies--is also the basis for homosexual 'marriage,' which by extension is also a lie. It's a point we have made repeatedly when referring to homosex 'marriage.'
This is a matter of nature, which has to do with essence, not accident. Color of skin is accident. One's sex and the powers inherent thereof is nature.
Ask any Muslim, Hindu, or Orthodox Jew.
By coincidence, an essay at Federalist takes up the same general idea.
...As fringy as they may sound, injecting such lies into our language—“the pregnant man” and the push to separate the word “pregnancy” from the word “woman”—are clear signals that we are moving steadily towards erasing all gender distinctions in the law.
Oh. I see.
...We should especially care because we are well on the way to enacting such laws already. In November, the U.S. Senate voted in favor of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). The law is based on the assumption that one’s perceived “gender identity” does not always “match” your sex “assigned” or “designated” at birth. So, the thinking goes, the law should allow a more ambiguous array of gender identities: male, female, both, neither, or something else entirely. It’s not an overstatement to say that ENDA is a huge step, mostly under the radar, to codify a new definition of humanity.
And the list of Bozos who voted for this includes ALL the usual "Big Tent" Pubbies:
Ayotte, Collins, Flake, Hatch, Heller, Kirk, McCain, Murkowski, Portman, and Toomey.
McCain is like the damned spot of Shakespearean fame. Just won't disappear.
And how does our Waukesha County Clerk fit into this panoply of lies and deceit?
...If gender distinctions are erased in law, all marriage will become legally obsolete. The elites pushing same-sex “marriage” have known this all along....
The dumbass woman has managed to commit criminal stupidity, that's how. Who knew that a miserable little clerk in Waukesha could imitate Obozo so well?
