On his first day in office Joe Biden issued an executive order requiring every institution that receives federal funding to put biological males on women’s sports teams, in their locker rooms and showers, on overnight trips, and more - and likewise to put women into formerly private male only spaces. The executive order demands that all federally funded institutions affirm people’s 'gender dysphoria'. Instead of treating it for what it is, they must now inflict these 'psychological distress and sexual disorientation afflictions' on the vast majority who don't share in them at all.

Biden's executive order undoes the Trump administration’s allowance of federally funded institutions to recognize male/female differences, which overturned an Obama executive order, issued in his last months in office, that required, on pain of federal prosecution, all public schools and higher education institutions to reinforce any students’ 'gender dysphoria', at the expense of the emotional and physical well-being of all other non-sexually disoriented students.

Biden is once again threatening these institutions with the loss of their federal funding if they fail to comply, as well as applying these Orwellian 'orders' to every aspect of federal law and policy, from health care to employment to housing and education.

The same day his inaugural speech called for “leaders” to “defend the truth and defeat the lies,” Biden signed an executive order claiming to provide “equality”, while in reality enforcing discrimination against the vast majority of Americans who aren’t 'transgender', who don't suffer from 'gender dysphoria' or 'sexual disorientation', who recognize and embrace the biological differences of the two sexes.

Yeah, I know the not wanting to keep track anymore feeling! Pretending this sort of stuff doesn't impact all of us is a 'hide your head in the sand till it goes away' sort of response, and that's not going to help anyone.

Biden's doing what he did wasn't a 'blunder', not be any stretch. It's among the first of many hard pivots towards the left and their socialist agenda for America that he'll make. We'll all have to deal with this sort of radical leftist lunacy for the next couple of years at least, and silently hiding our heads in the sand and pretending these things don't matter isn't a response America can afford.

I've said this before, "You're not going to like what's coming." At this moment nothing is personally affecting me or Jeannie. I do find such a stark and sudden change in our presidential administration policies interesting, however. About 6 to 12 months should provide better indications of how America is doing. Someone posted they hope more damage isn't done to America. My feelings exactly. I like to see people do well. As in all Americans.

If you've found a way to personally disassociate yourself from what's going on in federal politics, executive orders and mandates I applaud those efforts. As long as the tail pipe is in someone else's backyard it doesn't affect me. Think of America as a giant fish tank which we all are swimming in. A few fish swim behind a rock and piss. Which then circulates throughout the tank. You could extend this off color analogy to the globe if you want. Basically we're all in this together.

If you're working for a living and paying your own way, your wallet will likely see less money in it as the federal government tries to find ways to pay for increasing numbers of social programs. And clean up the messes created by state governments. Social programs also include those on the government's payroll that will be needed to run them. Uncle Sam doesn't make money, they spend it. And when they run out or run low they will come after your wallet. Printing money isn't sustainable either. Paying people to not work with money we don't have is fiscally irresponsible. It's called socialism, coming to a wallet near you soon. Where this has been tried, it usually hasn't worked out very well for the worker bee. Serfs till the soil and get crumbs at the end of a hard day's work. The peasants will eventually storm the Bastille as history teaches us.

Running America can't be done from the basement either. Nor should it be done by vindictive acts. America's President is a highly visible leader with global impacts. Do Biden and Harris possess those skills? We'll know shortly. It's pretty clear our elected officials don't represent us as a nation. Instead they are acting in their own self interests. We'll see how well the country tolerates all this.

The day after President Biden issued his executive order requiring that educational institutions that receive federal funding must enforce the logically baseless idea that biological males who claim to be females are in fact female, and biological females who claim to be males are in fact male, “#BidenErasedWomen” began to trend on Twitter.

Matt Walsh
@MattWalshBlog
The only argument that anyone has presented in defense of allowing boys into girls bathrooms and sports is that it will make some boys feel bad if we don't. But this argument, already irrelevant and stupid, is canceled out by the fact that it makes the girls feel bad if we do.

Matt Walsh
@MattWalshBlog
You are suggesting not only that feelings should outweigh reality, but that the feelings of a tiny minority of confused boys should outweigh the feelings of the vast majority of normal girls. Nothing about this argument is morally or logically coherent.

I get called TERF because I believe women have a right to our own sports, prisons, refuges & spaces and because I believe children should be protected from people who seek to sexualise them and to confuse them about who they are. Happy to stand for what I do.

On day one, Biden reduced womanhood to nothing more than a feeling inside a man's head, an insulting set of stereotypes, undeserving of female-only spaces and fair, safe sports categories. American women have absolutely nothing to celebrate today.

Abigail Shrier
@AbigailShrier
On day 1, Biden unilaterally eviscerates women's sports. Any educational institution that receives federal funding must admit biologically-male athletes to women's teams, women's scholarships, etc. .. A new glass ceiling was just placed over girls.

Erielle Davidson
@politicalelle
Sad day for women’s sports. Women must compete against biological males at the risk of injury and loss of title, thanks to a new Biden executive order. Don’t ever tell me this is “pro-woman.” It’s not. It’s destructive and malicious.

Chad Felix Greene
@chadfelixg
The sole issue surrounding transgender individuals in athletic competition has been biological males competing against biological females. .. Not transmen. .. Its not a transgender issue at all. Its simply an issue of fairness. One the LGBT left and now Democrats refuse to recognize.

As Muniac has reminded us more than once in speaking of what we can expect from Biden and his administration, "You're not going to like what's coming.."

Expect Biden to be far worse than Obama. He has both houses of congress on his side. Expect censorship of even casual conservative discussion to get much worse. I am an amateur radio operator. And I just found out that the ARRL (kind of like the NRA for amateur radio operators) which I don't belong to, received a warning from the FCC not to use amateur radio for "criminal purposes" As far as "criminal purposes", that has always been the law, and every amateur radio operator knows it. But new things are becoming "criminal" And that apparently means saying anything negative about leftists. Big tech is already censoring social media. They are trying to eliminate conservative news networks like Newsmax and One America News, along with all conservative Youtube channels. To my knowledge the FCC has never issued a warning like this in their entire history. I immediately saw it as an attempt at censorship of amateur radio. Legally you have to give your call sign when using amateur radio, and that allows them to identify you. If they hear you talking about something they don't like, they can cancel your license.

They are also trying to pass laws against "hate speech" which means anything negative about leftists anywhere anytime. This is going to get bad. Really bad. These are not the Democrats of the past. IMO, it is now time to consider this a survival situation. For those who don't have a problem because they have not yet been affected, remember this:

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

As a Republican I didn't vote for Biden or Trump again. I consider him a rino. Looking forward to 2024 and a Republican candidate worth voting for.

A paper published by the New England Journal of Medicine forwards the argument that biological sex designations on birth certificates could emotionally hurt transgender and intersex people, therefore such information should not appear on the document.

The argument is that “assigned sex” should be listed “below the line,” allowing it's use in vital statistics but not to identify the individual on the document itself. The paper's authors contend that the best solution is to remove all acknowledgment of a person’s biological sex altogether, including from passports and other identifying documents. Radical LGBT leftists see no purpose in legally identifying sex at birth for anyone. All that matters to them is what each individual 'feels their gender identity is', not the biological male or female sex they were born into.

The argument goes that with 'gender identification' solely dependent on how the individual 'feels' at a given point in time, gender-nonbinary people (who insist they belong to neither sex) will more easily be able to manage their personal lives. The 'medical professionals' who wrote this paper make the specious claim that “Assigning sex at birth..doesn’t capture the diversity of people’s experiences.” ..No sh!t!!..

The Williams Institute found in 2016 that approximately 1.4 million American adults identify as 'transgender', a percentage ranging from 0.4 percent to 0.6 percent nationally.

According to a New York Times report in 2015, only 135,567 people had changed their name to one of the opposite sex in the entire 80-year history of the Social Security Administration, and only 30,000 people have changed their sex designation on Social Security documents.

With this minuscule minority 'tail' now 'wagging the national dog' as it pushes it's 'gender dysphoria' radical leftist lunacy on the entire country, irregardless of the fact that Americans across the board see this stupidity as absolutely 'bonkers', anyone with a modicum of rationality about them has more than enough reason to take a GIANT step back and say, 'WTF?!!'..
