In 2012 the American left accused Republicans of waging a “war on women” for their attempts to block public funding of abortion and birth control pills. They claimed that Republicans wanted to harm women and ban “access” to birth control and even went so far as accusing Republicans of supporting legislation that would “redefine rape.” It was political theater and hyperbole at its worst.
Fast forward to 2016.
The American left, in their efforts to redefine the culture and further eliminate any opposition to the agenda of the LGBT lobby, has now embraced the dangerous position of making it a “right” for any individual to use the restroom of their choosing, based on the gender that they choose to identify with in that particular moment.
The LGBT lobby is doing their best to tear down the straw man argument that people who identify as transgender pose a threat to women and children. I generally agree with them that husbands and fathers shouldn’t be worried about transgender women assaulting their wives and daughters.
But that’s not the issue. The problem husbands and fathers should be worried about is sexual predators taking advantage of this newly minted “right” to give them more opportunities and access to their victims.
