Gender Activism
Sweeps America

 

By Harmony Grant Daws
21 May 2010


Type “ENDA” into Google’s news feed and you will find that most news about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act is being generated by homosexual and transgender activists who want the bill passed. Rep. Barney Frank says an ENDA vote is being pushed back until late June or early July and Washington news source The Hill says ENDA has “dimmer chances” of passage than a repeal of Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell. But its supporters are hardly muting their vehement demands. The Christian right is comparatively quiet, primarily requesting tame petitions and mail-ins while the left aggressively phones in and shows up. For example, a pro-ENDA protest was held outside the Federal Building in San Francisco May 18. In Chicago, thirteen gay activists were arrested after refusing to leave Sen. Dick Durbin’s office, where they were demanding passage of ENDA.

One of the arrested homosexuals said, “I am here because we can no longer sit around and wait for our rights to be handed to us by politicians, we must demand our rights from them. We have to be here to fight for those who are forced to remain invisible and deny who they are just to make a living.”
She is saying homosexuals have a right to be hired by private employers and businesses—which is no American’s right! She is also saying homosexuals have a right to be and remain hired while forcing their sexual preferences or gender transition into full view of customers or fellow employees.
States with at-will employment laws would be required by ENDA to rewrite their statutes. Employers of fifteen people or more would no longer have the right to hire and fire at will—distributing their hard-earned capitol to job seekers as they see fit—but to justify their choices based on political correctness of the most obscene flavor.
Increasingly, employers are losing their rights to uphold traditional values or even simple, non-offensive gender representations in the businesses they own. New York attorney general Andrew Cuomo has forced clothing retailer American Eagle Outfitters to change its uniform policy, which required men to wear male uniforms and women to wear the female version. The retailer is now required to let its 2,000 New York employees choose the gender of uniform they prefer.
AEO came to a settlement to avoid a drawn-out legal battle. NY Daily News says “this is the first crackdown against a retailer under the section of the state’s Human Rights Law that bars employers from discriminating against applicants because of their gender identity.” If applicants had male birth certificates and wanted to wear male uniforms, there would be no problem. Intersexual individuals and transsexuals who have fully transitioned would not be affected. This is a problem for applicants hired as one gender who want to wear the clothing of the opposite gender. This is a problem, in other words, for gender activists.
A transgendered “woman” in California is suing the retail giant Macy’s on grounds of wrongful termination and gender-related grievances, including being ejected from the women’s restroom. She was fired for alleged insubordination and foul language but claims she was repeatedly harassed and discriminated against because of her gender. In Pennsylvania, a transgendered “woman” is winning a discrimination lawsuit against her former employer, brought before the Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission. She was hired as “James” but was transitioning to “Kate Lynn.” Her employers required her to use a unisex bathroom until she could provide medical documentation of her “anatomically appropriate” gender.
Such lawsuits will multiply as gender activists attack employers they perceive as hostile toward their transgender status or current transition. Such activists are seeking to make a political statement not to quietly make peace with their own situation. If homosexuals or transsexuals wanted to do so, most could easily live within traditional environments, exercising their own sexual freedom at home while not offending their employers, coworkers, or customers. This has been proven by intersexual individuals who have been forced by biology to transition and who find ways to live in society without making others needlessly uncomfortable.
For some Americans, transitioning from their assigned gender has nothing to do with activism. It is not about politics, mental illness, or rage against the system; it is biological. In one to two percent of live births, babies are born with disorders of sexual development (also called intersex conditions) that create ambiguous genitalia or other birth defects. Such babies may be incorrectly assigned a gender as medical professionals struggle to label extra chromosomes, ambiguous genitals, or ovotestes. Such babies may grow into adults who realize their brains, spirits and hormonal makeup do not align with the gender in which they were raised. They deserve compassion, empathy and assistance in finding medical and psychiatric treatment for this very genuine and difficult affliction.
“Gender queer” activism, though it includes some intersexuals, is different. It advocates for unlimited gender transitioning—whether biologically based or not—that requires no more justification than an individual’s desire. Such activism also presses for acceptance of a “gender spectrum” with many more options than “male” or “female.” By assaulting the gender binary, this activism threatens the very structure of society, the family, and marriage. Incredibly, it may soon become enshrined in federal law. If ENDA passes, the 38 states which do not currently forbid gender identity discrimination by employers will be forced to uphold this ban.
If this assault on the gender binary continues, the shattering outcomes on American society are limitless. Schools will be forced to allow boys on girls’ teams and vice versa and may even implement “third gender” sports. Science classes will teach a gender spectrum along with homosexuality, presenting “male” and “female” as an outdated myth. Children will be raised to believe that they may be “male, female, both or neither.”(Take a look at www.GenderSpectrum.org) This blurring of gender roles is a perfect way to promote homosexual experimentation among children and teenagers.


GenderSpectrum.org - presenting "an overview of how society currently defines gender and how these restrictive definitions can be detrimental to those who do not fit neatly into these categories. We then help you identify and remove the obstacles so all are free to be our authentic selves."

 


If employers are no longer able to define gender through uniform or restroom use, how can teachers or even parents or pastors be permitted to uphold traditional gender definitions?
ENDA—along with other “homosexual rights” activist legislation—is a militant assault on the very fabric of American society and values.

America First Books Editor's Note

For those new to this controversy, please check the latest articles in our Rev Ted Pike and Harmony Grant archive to see where protests should be directed to be the most effective. Sometimes the "action" is in the House, and other times it is in the Senate or in the Executive Office. Sometimes it involves arresting a bill before it gets through a committee, or it at other times it may have already slipped through and now faces either a floor vote or the possibility of getting snuck through as a rider to another bill. Also, please link to the following articles:

Fox News Rips "Pedophile-Protecting" Hate Bill:

...[Fox News anchor Megyn] Kelly interviewed Rep. Steve King, who attempted to amend the hate bill in Judiciary last week to explicitly exclude pedophiles. King reported how Rep. Alcee Hastings, a pro-hate bill Democrat, proudly claimed practitioners of 547 paraphilias listed by the American Psychiatric Association can "live without fear" once the hate bill is passed.
Ms. Kelly also expressed indignation that, while the Democrats acted to protect pedophiles, they rejected Republican efforts to obtain similar special protection for war veterans. Especially in times of unpopular wars, these are common victims of "hate crimes," spit upon or attacked because of who they are -- military defenders of America's freedom...

Alert to Congress Regarding Hate Bills and the False Flag Attack Threat by America First Books publisher William B. Fox. Two-thirds down the web page please find the essay "The Hate Crime Law Concept: It is all very sinister for at least nine major reasons."
Also, earlier on this same page I comment:

Although Rev Ted Pike is completely independent from Captain May and myself in terms of his political and religious views, the threats we address all stem from the same corrupt power elite. I mention in my concluding remarks below that this elite “would mobilize us into domestic tyranny and foreign wars, while distracting us from economic depression and the groups that brought it about.”
This is the real problem, not the lack of more “hate crime” laws. If anything, we need even more freedom of speech to speak truth to power, sort out our problems, and develop peaceful strategies to handle high level malefactors. This is why we urgently need for members of Congress to not only take a principled stand and stop all hate crime legislative initiatives, but to also roll back all the existing hate crime laws currently on the books.

Hate crime laws actually pose a major national security threat. They condition Americans to feel that certain types of thought are inherently immoral or illegal, even if they do not result in any form of violence or infringement on the rights of others.
In our articles related to false flag attacks, Capt. Eric H. May and I have discussed strong evidence that Mossad-CIA was behind 9-11, the mere "thought" of which would some day be outlawed once hate crime oversight bureaucracies become firmly implanted in America. We can expect government hate crime overwatch entities to experience the usual cancerous growth and abuse of power that libertarian writer and Presidential candidate Harry Browne described in his classic book Why Government Doesn't Work.
