The science is in and the “progressive” Left are well and truly off the mark.
Despite their claims that male and female are interchangeable “social constructs”, biology begs to differ.
In fact, researchers have found 6,500 genes differ between the sexes. Hormone treatments may corrupt a tiny percentage of these genes, but most will forever remain unchanged – and of course cosmetic changes are exactly that - cosmetic.
Research from Stanford Medicine confirms what many of us knew purely by common sense: “that there are inherent differences in how men’s and women’s brains are wired and how they work.”
Here are some of their findings:
New technologies have generated a growing pile of evidence that there are inherent differences in how men’s and women’s brains are wired and how they work.
Many of these cognitive differences appear quite early in life. “You see sex differences in spatial-visualization ability in 2- and 3-month-old infants,” Halpern says. Infant girls respond more readily to faces and begin talking earlier. Boys react earlier in infancy to experimentally induced perceptual discrepancies in their visual environment. In adulthood, women remain more oriented to faces, men to things.”
In other news, “progressives” cheered on a transgender (male to female) student who won a race against actual girls. The Blaze reports: “A mustachioed boy who ‘identifies as a girl’ heroically won gold in the 100 meter dash and 200 meter dash for the Connecticut high school girls’ state championships last week. His times would have placed him a full second behind last place in the boy’s competition, but against the girls he easily came in first.”
This is not empowering to girls and women. This is not a celebration of “equality”. This is a boy (in 6,500 genetic ways) snatching empowerment from girls.
How did the girl who came second (or first amongst those with 6,500 reasons to identify as female) really feel about having victory snatched from her by a person with 6,500 reasons to identify as male?
“I can’t really say what I want to say, but there’s not much I can do about it.”
Just like “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, anyone who dares to admit the obvious is quickly silenced.
What does this have to do with marriage?
The same “progressives” who deny the inherent, genetic differences between men and women also deny the unique and equally vital contribution of a man and a woman in marriage and family.
Two men who claim they can replace the role of a mother to her child – that’s not equality.
To deny the unique and equally important contribution of a mother to the development of her children is something else altogether.
There are at least 6,500 reasons to support true marriage equality = 1 man + 1 woman 4 Life.Share
