Last year the Obama administration attempted to coerce public schools into allowing mentally ill people who believe they are, or should be, the opposite sex from what their DNA says that they are, to use the bathrooms of the opposite sex. The Trump administration reversed this yesterday leaving it to local and state governments to decide. From the way this was reported in the mainstream media one might have thought that the world was coming to an end. Of all the very mad policies embraced by the left none are madder than the belief that sex is an artificial construct and that people, at their whim, may adopt the sex that they prefer, biology be hanged. This absurdity has become a core article of faith for the left, and that explains the fury with which common sense is met in this area by those on the port side of our politics. This has little to do with that sad handful of the population who are mislabeled “transgender” and everything to do with the leftist war against reality.
