In December, the public school superintendent in Loudoun County, Virginia, was fired and indicted for lying to parents about the rape of a young girl in a restroom by a male classmate. Covering the story, The Washington Post admitted the male student was wearing a skirt when he gained access to the girls’ restroom but then added that there was “no evidence” he was transgender.
But for years now we’ve been told that anything and everything counts as evidence … the clothes someone chooses to wear, the pronouns they request, the restroom they choose, the gender they claim, or the plastic surgery they’ve had.
In the coverage of the Colorado Springs shooter, too, the press has been largely unwilling to concede that anyone who identifies as a protected sexual minority can do wrong. Both are examples of a Critical Theory mood that infects culture and the irrationality of reducing identity to inner feelings that justify all outer expressions.
It’s always better and safer to base policy on objective biological reality.
