Years from now, historians will ponder the forces that transformed “Middle-Class” Joe Biden into America’s first trans president.
Just 16 years ago, during a television interview with Tim Russert, Biden declared that marriage was between a man and a woman with as much confidence and vigor as an evangelical reading from the book of Genesis. This past Tuesday, as the 46th president of the United States, Biden signed the so-called Respect for Marriage Act into law and lit the White House in rainbow colors to mark the queer-affirming celebration.
"We need to challenge,” Biden said, “the hundreds of callous, cynical laws introduced in the states targeting transgender children, terrifying families, and criminalizing doctors who get children to care they need. We have to protect these children."
So what happened? How did a devout Delaware Catholic become the LGBTQ’s most powerful and loudest ally? It’s actually not that hard to understand Biden’s transition.
Democrats love experimenting with identity and bending reality through the creative use of language. Bill Clinton was called the “first black president” by author Toni Morrison. Newsweek declared Barack Obama the “first gay president.”
Biden is keeping with Democrat identity-bending tradition, a fitting end for a president who has done more to legitimize the idea that men can become women than any previous occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW.
Joe Biden pushed President Obama into supporting same-sex marriage in 2012, and the 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court case changed the federal definition of marriage to include homosexual couples. Now Biden is overseeing the current attempts to redefine “man” and “woman” in American law and social custom.
Joe Biden has courted the “Trans King” title for at least the last decade and has used the first two years of his administration to unseat Obama and Clinton from the trans throne.
Biden appointed Dr. Rachel Levine as assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Levine is a man who formerly went by the name “Richard” and had two children with his ex-wife before identifying as a woman in 2011. It is unlikely that Levine would have been appointed to one of the most important positions in America’s public health establishment if he thought he was King Tut and dressed like a pharaoh. But in America today, some mental disorders are celebrated while others are not.
The Biden administration also hired Sam Brinton, noted “puppy play” enthusiast. Brinton, who identifies as “non-binary,” was recently fired from his position at the Department of Energy after allegedly stealing luggage from an airport for the second time in the last month. But much like Levine, kleptomania is seen as more disqualifying than the sordid sex life he insisted on making public.
Biden’s trans bona fides extend beyond hiring. One of his first acts as president was to sign an executive order that required federal agencies tasked with enforcing non-discrimination protections based on sex to extend them to include sexual orientation and gender identity. He also urged Congress to pass the Equality Act earlier this year at his State of the Union address. If that bill becomes law, men like Penn swimmer Will Thomas (aka Lia Thomas) will have federal law in their corner as they dominate women’s sports and take college scholarships meant for girls.
Joe Biden’s administration rejects biological sex in favor of gender identity with regard to law, public policy, and social custom. This seemingly minor change has turned the delusion of a small number of people with gender dysphoria into mass confusion for the rest of the country.
This is why Dylan Mulvaney was invited to the White House in October for a summit on “transgender rights.” Mulvaney is an adult male who has built a large online following by claiming he is “transitioning” to a girl. He posted a short video announcing his invitation to meet President Biden and was given an opportunity to ask him several questions.
This is the Biden presidency in a nutshell. It is much easier to get a sit-down with the leader of the free world and a job in his administration if you are a man pretending to be a girl than it would be if you publicly espoused traditional views on marriage.
President Biden’s age has been a topic of discussion ever since he decided to run for president. Now he must be told where to go and which journalists to engage at press conferences. This reality should prompt every American to ponder a simple question: How did a man who was born in the middle of World War II and eulogized a former Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan develop the same perspective on gender as a queer studies major at Brown University?
The answer is that Joe Biden has become a vessel for the worldview, rhetoric, and policy priorities of gender ideologues. His name recognition, fealty to the first gay president, and privileged identity (i.e., straight, white, and male) made him the perfect nominee for Democrats in 2020. But so did his cognitive decline.
The fact that he is undermining the most fundamental building block of human civilization is bad enough. What makes it worse is that he will be long gone when the genderqueer chickens he’s unleashed on America come home to roost.
This is textbook modern liberalism – push subversive policies to make yourself look virtuous while also ensuring you don’t personally have to deal with the consequences. Hospitals across the country are castrating and mutilating teenagers who express discomfort with their bodies. Other children are taking Lupron, the same drug used to chemically castrate sex offenders, as a puberty blocker.
The Biden administration uses the term “gender-affirming care” to describe the social, chemical, and surgical “transition” of children who experience any discomfort with their bodies.
The destruction of the human body in the name of diversity, inclusion, and equity (DIE) is evil. But to the first trans president of the United States, it’s the culmination of a legacy that will place him on the right side of history written by Democrats.
