Canada’s Ugly Gender Agenda
All over the West we are witnessing moral meltdowns and gender madness. Radical activist groups and trendy elites are insisting that sexuality and gender are entirely open-ended, and that anything goes. Indeed, gender is just a social construct anyway, so let’s pull out all the stops, and declare a war on nature.
Sexual politics thus keeps getting further and further out of control. Witness another recent indication of this: “gender neutral” restrooms. Yep, you heard me right. Men and women are identical in every respect, these activists insist, so it is wrong and discriminatory to have ‘his’ and ‘her’ bathrooms. Consider what is happening in Canada concerning these matters.
One report says this: “An LGBTQ advocacy group at the University of Regina is congratulating itself for being instrumental in the establishment of ‘gender neutral’ restrooms at the school. ‘After two long years of planning and negotiating, the University of Regina will have 10 gender neutral washrooms on campus,’ the UR Pride Centre for Sexuality and Gender Diversity announced last week on its website. ‘We will also have a hilarious “how to guide” available shortly.’
“Washrooms catering to LGBTQ students are already de rigeur in many Canadian universities, including Dalhousie, St. Thomas University, Queens, Carleton, McGill, the University of Victoria, and the University of Manitoba, to name but a few.
“The newly designated bathrooms on campus are the same single person-use facilities that previously had a sign indicating they could be used by either sex. They are marked by a male and female stick figure and the word ‘restroom’.
“New signs now show the same stick figures but ‘restroom’ has been replaced with the words ‘gender neutral,’ followed by an explanation that reads: ‘This restroom may be used by any person regardless of gender identity or expression’….
“Barbara Pollock, the university’s vice president of external relations, said, ‘Around here we have about 13,000 people in our community…and in that group there are people who can feel threatened in a single gender washroom. When we were asked if we could consider converting some to gender-neutral we said, “Yes, let’s do it”.’”
“Threatened in a single gender washroom”. What next? Will we cater specially for those who feel threatened wearing lipstick? Pushing prams? Playing checkers? Walking in a park? Eating pancakes? Driving Toyotas? Reading cookbooks? What sort of madness has descended upon us when the radicals want to utterly destroy gender and the natural differences between men and women?
Fortunately not everyone is thrilled with this social activism and sexual suicide. The Canadian group Campaign Life Coalition has been hard at work on this one, seeking to prevent this insanity from being inflicted upon the nation. They provide a bit of historical background here:
“Over the past several years in both Canada and the United States, there has been a concerted effort by gay activists to create a spurious, new right to ‘gender identity’ and ‘gender expression’. In 2011, private member’s Bill C-389 died in the Senate when the Canadian federal election was called. Despite a Conservative majority, its successor in the next parliament, Bill C-279, shockingly passed second reading on June 6th 2012 by a vote of 150 to 132. The third reading vote is scheduled to occur February 27, 2013.
“The gay lobby has successfully portrayed this legislation as ‘innocuous’, and a mere tweaking of the Human Rights Code to ensure gender-confused persons are protected from ‘discrimination’. A slim majority of federal politicians appear to have accepted this line of reasoning.
“A close examination of what it means to grant special status to groups who self-define by ‘gender expression’ and ‘gender identity’ reveals implications that are far-reaching. Politicians, by passing Bill C-279, would unleash unintended consequences that are seriously damaging to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the personal security of women and even to the individuals who suffer with the psychological problem known as Gender Identity Disorder (GID).”
The article continues. “There is strong evidence that adding ‘gender identity’ and/or ‘gender expression’ to the Human Rights Act will give gender-confused men a basis for seeking the legal right to use female-only facilities. For example, in June 2006, Mr. John Fulton the owner of the Downtown Health Club for women in St. Catharines, ON received a phone call from a man demanding membership access. The man turned out to be a ‘transsexual’ who had not yet undergone sex reassignment surgery. This gender-confused man wanted full access to the women’s only gym which included 24 hour access to the showers, locker rooms and bathrooms. When Mr. Fulton refused, the man filed a challenge with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario….
“Pro-family groups such as Concerned Women of America have warned that these ‘gender identity’ laws will increase the already rising incidence of bathroom attacks on women by sexual predators, who will count on using the new law as an alibi if they get caught. The government ought not risk making it easier for sexual predators to escape justice and re-offend another day.
“To be clear, we’re not saying that individuals who identify as ‘transgendered’ are sexual predators. Rather, there will be an increased legal opportunity for sexual predators and peeping toms who pretend to be ‘transgendered’, to enter female bathrooms. These miscreants will count on being able to escape prosecution, if caught or suspected, by simply claiming that they’re ‘transgendered’ and they are just exercising the right to ‘express their female gender’. How can a police officer possibly know otherwise?
“Several women have been killed in the United States in bathroom attacks, and there have been numerous reports of attacks in Canada as well. Do we really want to make it easier for sexual predators to get in close quarters with vulnerable women by pretending to be transgendered?”
But these militant activists and social engineers really don’t give a rip about such ugly consequences. All they care about is thoroughly destroying society and all of its long-standing social institutions and sexual values, replacing it all with their radical social and sexual anarchy.
Indeed, the activists know that such legislation is a great way to attack Christian businesses, charities and churches as well: “Adding the terms ‘gender identity’ and gender expression to the Act will lead to trampling of religious freedom and conscience rights. The militant activists pushing this bill are not interested in using it as a protective ‘shield’. Instead, they will use it as a ‘sword’ to target Christian and other faith-based businesses, religious institutions and charities for holding biblical beliefs on human sexuality.
“This will also invite trouble for private businesses and even religious institutions which will be compelled by the law to permit their employees to dress up in the opposite sex. Is it beyond the pale to imagine a male employee at a Christian charity filing a human rights complaint for not being allowed to dress up as a woman while at work?”
Yes, all these attempts at radical social engineering are not only about destroying a nation, but singling out Christian moral concerns, beliefs and practices. The militants have declared war on everything we hold near and dear, and will not rest until our concerns have been muzzled and eliminated.
And children of course are the biggest losers here: “If you had a 9-year old daughter, how would you feel about a man going into the bathroom after her? How is that child supposed to discern whether the man in the bathroom with her is a rapist, a peeping tom, or merely an innocent ‘transsexual’ who thinks he’s a woman trapped in a man’s body? It is unconscionable for legislators to put vulnerable, female children in such a dangerous position.
“Legislators will also be removing that red-flag that all young girls naturally have when a man walks into the bathroom with them. If C-279 passes, it will make commonplace the presence of so-called ‘transgendered men’ in girls’ bathrooms, and greatly diminish that protective, red-flag warning that currently exists in our children.”
The diabolical nature of all this activism is clearly seen in how cavalier they are to the well-being of our most innocent and vulnerable citizens: our children. That alone should tell you all you need to know about these activists and their ugly, destructive agenda.
