Who am I to you? The State Will Decide

Updated: Sep 22, 2023

“If We Can Pick our Gender, Can we Pick our Age? Our Race?” That’s the headline of an article I published in The Federalist today. Logic requires a “yes” answer for both age and race. Today the state of Maryland joined 17 others to pass one of those laws that purports to protect “gender identity.” It’s a dangerous and de-humanizing path. You can read my essay here:

Transgender laws are based entirely on self-perceptions. They don’t permit a common understanding of human reality. Rather, they end up foisting upon everyone a new definition of what it is to be human. But the rule of law can’t survive these sorts of ambiguities. The state will enforce acceptance of certain perceptions and punish those who do not recognizing those perceptions. This will have a profound effect on how the state views — and ultimately dictates — relationships.

We need to resist such laws, especially legislation in Congress like ENDA — which falsely claims to be an “Employment Non-Discrimination Act.” Because, in the end, it’s all about the state dictating our relationships.
