A survey taken of voters in Arizona earlier this month shows that many Americans still have not bought into the idea that biology is completely irrelevant when it comes to bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, and other such public facilities.
According to the poll, just over half of respondents — 50.6 percent — said that individuals “should be required to use the restroom that matches their gender at birth.” Only 39.3 percent said that bathroom usage should be determined based off of how people “define their own gender.”
These results come amidst increasing opposition nationwide to the left’s radical “gender identity” agenda. Last week, a federal judge upheld a ruling against the Obama administration’s transgender school bathroom edict, preventing the president from enforcing a policy which would have forced schools across the country to allow students to use bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers and to participate on sports teams and in other sex-segregated activities based on their “internal sense of gender.”
We also reported here on The Pulse last week about recent developments in Massachusetts, where a number of churches have sued the state government over a law which would severely penalize houses of worship for failing to adhere to the new transgender ideology. Now, it’s possible that law could be voted down by statewide ballot in 2018.
And in North Carolina, ground-zero for the left’s bullying tactics, Gov. Pat McCrory’s odds of winning his race for reelection have greatly improved in the last couple weeks despite attempts by Democrats and the corporate-entertainment establishment to vilify him over his support for HB 2.
Perhaps sanity may have a fighting chance after all.
