This doesn’t surprise me. Biden is a very corporate politician, and the trans trend is a very corporate entity.

[–] HelgeNacht [OP] 21 points (+21|-0)

Yes. It seems a lot of the people on this threat think this is nothing.

He's telling the trans brigade that they will get everything they want within his power.

[–] femuhnist 12 points (+15|-3)

Yeah, this is bland virtue signaling. I understand why it’s upsetting to people but it’s essentially meaningless, he’ll do something like this for all the marginalized identity days.

Here is the text:

To transgender and gender-nonconforming people across America and around the world: from the moment I am sworn in as president, know that my administration will see you, listen to you, and fight for not only your safety but also the dignity and justice you have been denied.

Non-conforming, huh? So pretty much everyone, then... nobody fully fits into the pink and blue stereotypical boxes.

Will he be defending GNC children from people suggesting/assuming/pressuring them to be trans? I doubt it.

[–] Seven-of-Wine 24 points (+24|-0)

Dignity hey?

I am a 'gender non-conforming person' inasmuch as I don't buy into sex stereotypes so I look forward to his protecting my dignity by not allowing men into my changing rooms, hospital wards and anywhere else they're not wanted.

He could also defend the dignity of TIMs by suggesting they pack it in with their undignified spectacles of womanface, cheating in sport, and throwing venomous tantrums all over social media.

As aggravating as this is, I'm smirking bc the first comment I saw was, "Hey Christian fundies, the Bible also says adulterers should be stoned. Should we do Trump first?" XD This comment demonstrates what I see as the real issue with aligning ourselves with conservatives - They are not credible people in general, who make a habit of rationalizing stuff through their faith.

Their basic worldview is built on the Bible, which to me is something like building your entire world on Harry Potter, 2000 years from now. Every argument they make springs from a deeply flawed, hardcore patriarchal alternate understanding of reality. A worldview whose main flex point is along an authoritarian axis. They tend to pay lip service to popular liberal ideas, but reserve the right to drag us all back to the Middle Ages if they decide it's necessary. Tl;dr: Their philosphy has inconsistencies that will allow them to turn on us in a moment when it suits them.

I think we all understand this on a gut level. That's why this kind of crap from Biden and the Dems is so upsetting. What I hear when he says stuff like this is a reminder that no one is on our side.

They are not credible people in general, who make a habit of rationalizing stuff through their faith.

As opposed to the woke, who use misguided academic "theories" to rationalize their labelling and witchhunting of anyone and everyone as racist sexist transphobic bigots. Everyone rationalizes immoral behaviour, it's how humans get away with power-seeking behaviour while maintaining an image of moral superiority. Queer theory may be newer than the Bible or the Quran but it's all the same in the end and it's all authoritarian in a way that should scare anyone who knows about the regimes of places like China or North Korea. They don't rely on religion. They rely on tribalism of the kind you're displaying here - it's easy to see the hypocrisy of one group of people when they aren't on your side. Who doesn't see the negative traits in who they perceive to be their enemies. You already decided them being in control is to your disadvantage. Seeing the true intentions of people you perceive to be on your team is not quite as easy.

You seem to assume that all conservatives are religious. I am conservative, pro choice, pro 2A, and an atheist. I'm also confused as to who "they" and "us" are in this scenario?

[–] worried19 9 points (+9|-0)

Sounds like a reasonable statement on the surface. Everyone's for dignity, safety, and justice, gender critical feminists included.

But we all know the policies underlying that statement. As a gender nonconforming person, nothing he's going to do will better my life. His actions will directly harm thousands of gender nonconforming children and teenagers. Kids just like I was, who will be sterilized and face a lifetime of dependence on doctors, a host of serious health issues, and an unknown but likely reduced lifespan.

[–] Srfthrowaway 8 points (+8|-0)

Non conforming eh? That's not what trans ideology is. You can't support both.

[–] madderthanhell 18 points (+18|-0)

A rather large bill is coming due... As with Obama, so with Biden; the Democrats took money, power and influence from Big Trans to win the white house and the time of reckoning is at hand.

[–] HelgeNacht [OP] 10 points (+10|-0)

I think a lot of women don't see this.

[–] orangelimeapple 17 points (+17|-0)

Right, I mean this is right in front of our eyes, yet some women on this site keep making excuses for Biden-Harris and their pro-TRA rhetoric. It's flabbergasting. I guess cognitive dissonance goes both ways?

[–] HelgeNacht [OP] 8 points (+9|-1)

The previous admin has lowered to bar to the floor, and many US women aren't aware of the scope of trans extremism that is already in place in many parts of Europe.

[–] ClaraReed1 12 points (+12|-0)

Listen, I’m not American and your laws are so convoluted to me that I’m not sure if Biden can bring in self-ID as an Executive Order. Is that possible? From what I understand, EO’s can be effectively undone by a President that follows after.

Statistically speaking, what’s the likelihood of self-ID being brought in? If Biden can’t make it law with the stroke of a pen, is it something that would end up in front of the SC? And if so, would the fact that the Court is stacked to the right stop it from passing the SC?

[–] HelgeNacht [OP] 12 points (+12|-0)

I see self ID as what he'll push through first. It's going to be a very dark time for women.

[–] Pendleton 6 points (+6|-0)

I'm not sure how much he can effectively do, seeing as it looks like Republicans are going to keep the Senate. From what I understand, the equality act (which gets talked about alot on here) would need to be reintroduced to the House and passed, then pass the senate, which it wont if Republicans still have majority. It's still something that should be paid attention to tho, imo.

As undesirable as a super majority conservative SC is, if trans related cases make it up to them they will likely rule against anything relating to gender identity.

Could he try passing something else? Maybe. This is my best understanding of the situation tho.

So, it was Obama's executive order that allowed the transgender kids to enter opposite sex sports and spaces to begin with. He issued guidance that Title IX (the US law meant to help protect equal participation for females) should also include gender identity, so next thing you know you have boys competing in girls sports in all the liberal states that glommed onto this bs "guidance". This was one of the first things that Trump rescinded with his own XO. So yes, they can be undone by your replacement.

And, specifically to your question of "self-id", many places here already have "trans friendly" policies. So we've already had plenty of occurrences of full on men parading about in our facilities and the staff unable to do shit about it because "he says he's a woman". You see, your GRC over there is a form of gatekeeping that we don't have. So how do we make any rules with "gender inclusive" spaces? We can't. Self-id is already happening here, it's what we're currently fighting against.

[–] LGBALLIANCEUSA 3 points (+3|-0)

Self-ID is in a patchwork of state and local laws. The US Equality Act would make it federal law. We have formed a coalition with Feminists In Struggle and others to promote their Feminist Amendments to the Equality Act. Biden has promised to get it passed in his first 100 days. Much depends on the Senate run-offs in early January, and whether the Republicans retain control of the Senate, as mentioned in the comment above. We don't expect a self-id executive order, but we do expect Biden to do the exec order on Title IX, as mentioned above also. Please read our action alert and contact your reps!

His prior tweet was bemoaning the deaths of a few dozen trans people...I would link it right now but twitter seems to be having issues right now and I can't seem to access it all the time. NOT that I celebrate the death of anyone, but notice the deafening silence on violence against women.

[–] MakeThatDough 7 points (+7|-0) Edited

And still so many women, who do not CHOOSE their vagina, as opposed to neovagina, go missing and are murdered...

[–] DBrooke 7 points (+9|-2)

Don't love the pressure to pander, but I have no problem with the literal content.

[–] ClaraReed1 13 points (+13|-0)

Depends where the content leads. If it leads towards the erosion of women’s sex-based rights and the elimination of female only spaces, self-ID laws etc then it becomes a problem.

[–] HelgeNacht [OP] 5 points (+5|-0)

He's said multiple times in the past he'll push for what the trans lobby wants. If he hadn't, I'd pass it off as simple pandering.

[–] Chickpea 1 points (+1|-0)

I may just be grasping for any kind of positive, but I do like that he included the number. Anyone with an ounce of awareness will see that and think “37? That’s all?” and hopefully dig deeper into finding out why so much of a buzz is being made over the safest demographic.

[–] sapphireaqua 1 points (+2|-1)

If Biden didnt go full TRA he would have been cancelled already inspite of being the president winning an election in a landslide. I want to know who is funding the TRA lobby, they are so damn strong that they will cancel the shit out literally just anyone. I think Star Trek also put in those non binary and trans people in Discovery too just to placate the TRA

[–] Morningmist 3 points (+3|-0)

And what if he was? Dude won’t survive to see a second term. He’s probably in the most uncancellable position ever. He doesn’t have to pander to this small violent and shitty crowd. But the fact that he is is because he wants to. He hadn’t pandered about other things unlike this one, so it’s obvious he wants this.

[–] Fury 3 points (+3|-0)

Look @ Jennifer Bilek's work at 11thhourblog and elsewhere. She has traced all the money and men behind it.

[–] BeachLover -1 points (+1|-2)

I think he is talking about stopping violence. I agree with that. He didn't mention any of the more controversial policies.

[–] LGBALLIANCEUSA 3 points (+3|-0)

He has definitely mentioned it in his campaign materials etc. Please read our action alert newsletter, linked in this comment. thanks, https://ovarit.com/o/GenderCritical/9542/biden-s-declaration-on-twitter/28995664-d73b-4b49-b5ae-5ee6e9fe795b#comment-28995664-d73b-4b49-b5ae-5ee6e9fe795b
