The Scary "Gender Agenda"

Dale O'Leary has very helpfully set out the "Gender Agenda" for us to follow.

Let's dive right in!

"Twenty years ago I attended the United Nations’ Beijing Conference on Women. The focus of the gathering was the definition of “gender”. The word appeared at least once in almost all of platforms over 300 sections. While many people believe that the words “sex” and “gender” are interchangeable, the goal of the Beijing conference was to change radically the definition of both.
Until then, sex had described to the totality of what it means to be male or female, and gender was a grammatical term. But gender theory downgraded sex to the biological level only. In normal usage sex was to be replaced by gender, and gender would describe socially constructed roles that could be changed. A male could have a female gender identity."

Yes, there are very good reasons to not conflate sex and gender, namely the existence of trans people. "Biological sex" is also a construct, as intersex people are much more numerous than perceived and sex is much more complicated than we think:

From Dori Mooneyham's blog

"Biological Sex – There is no such thing. While many believe sex is an immutable biologically-determined characteristic set at birth, it is actually just another socially constructed binary based entirely on infants’ genitalia. There are frequent and naturally occurring variability of all aspects of what we socially lump together as someone’s “biological sex”.
Primary and Secondary Sex Characteristics all play a factor in how someone experiences their body in comparison with their Gender Identity."

Back to Dale O'Leary:

"According to gender ideology, all the psychological and cultural differences between men and women are artificial constructs that not only can, but should be eliminated so that men and women participate in every activity of society in statistically equal numbers."

We have NO WAY to even start determining what differences are genetic vs cultural until multiple generations grow up with less sexism.

"The obvious enemy of this agenda is motherhood. If two people have sexual relations, only one gets pregnant and it’s always the woman."
The fact that half the human race gets pregnant and the other half doesn't is basically the source of sexist oppression. We need to use technology and culture to overcome what evolution has done to us, just like we do with everything else.


"The UN is inhabited by people who believe that what the world needs is:
1)    Fewer people"

Yes.



"2)    More sexual pleasure"
Yes


"3)    The elimination of the differences between men and women"
Yes. As long as you mean how we treat men and women based on physical differences/identification.

"4)    No full-time mothers"

No. How does that even follow?


"These people recognize that increasing sexual pleasure could increase the number of babies and mothers. Therefore, their prescription for world salvation is:
1)    Free contraception and legal abortions"

Yes.

"2)    Promotion of homosexuality (sex without babies)"
I would say "acceptance", not promotion, but ok.

"3)    Sex education courses, which encourage sexual experimentation among children; which teach them how to get contraception and abortions, that homosexuality is normal, and that men and women are the same."

"Encouraging" sexual experimentation is a strawman, but otherwise yes.


4)    The elimination of parental rights so that parents cannot prevent children from having sex, sex education, contraception or abortion"
Yes

"5)    Fifty/fifty, male/female quotas"
I wouldn't go that far, but extreme gender imbalances can't be attributed to sex alone in our culture. Awareness of this and steps to rectify it are good.

"6)    All women in the workforce"
No. And not all men in the "workforce." Why is homemaking not work?

"7)    Discrediting all religions that oppose this agenda."
Yes. I'm fine with that.

The Gender Agenda cannot be defeated until people are willing to stand up and say, “No more inclusive language, no more politically correct speech.” We must refuse to say “gender” when we mean “sex”. Those who are offended by reality and human nature will just have to live with it."
Yes, stand up to inclusive language! Make your stand on excluding the minority! Die on the hill of treating sexual minorities like crap!

During the Beijing conference, at a meeting sponsored by pro-family, prolife NGO’s, two lesbians spoke up. They were crying and said that all they wanted was to get married. The pro-family, pro-life spokespersons had no compassionate answer and I knew that this would be next major challenge."
There's no compassionate answer to telling people they have to be oppressed? Imagine that!

"In the intervening years things have gotten worse. People who should know better use gender when they mean sex. Others go along with the fantasy that a man can become a woman, or that the relationship between two people of the same sex is a marriage. Selling unborn baby parts is defended on the floor of the US Senate."

In the intervening years more people have accepted trans people, gay marriage, and fetal tissue research? SCORE!

"Let us hope that people of good sense will follow their lead, wake up, realize they have been conned, and stand against gender theory in all its forms."
Yep, stand up against the "theory" that people have gender identity, that trans people exist, that biology is complicated, etc... Methinks you're the one against reality.
