“There are people in Europe who, confounding together the different characteristics of the sexes, would make man and woman into beings not only equal but alike. They would give to both the same functions, impose on both the same duties, and grant to both the same rights; they would mix them in all things–their occupations, their pleasures, their business. It may readily be conceived that by thus attempting to make one sex equal to the other, both are degraded, and from so preposterous a medley of the works of nature nothing could ever result but weak men and disorderly women.” — Alexis de Tocqueville, “How Americans Understand the Equality of the Sexes,” 1840
“If families are falling apart, it’s because men are suffering. Men are hurting. It’s not just that they’re walking away from their families. It’s that they’re not being the fathers they’re meant to be.” — Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin, U.S. Army (Ret.)
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” — Genesis 1:27 King James Version
EDITORS NOTE: This is the fifth in a series titled Decadent Democrats. You may read the previous installments here:
A Democrat Party of weak men and disorderly women
One of the main goals of Democrats has been to make men and women the same. We are not talking about voting rights, equal pay for equal work or access to opportunities to advance in our society and culture.
What Democrats have embraced is making men and women biologically alike. Hence degrading both sexes.
Democrats support the ideal of gender neutral pronouns, bathrooms that allow men and women equal access, homosexuality, bi-sexuality, transgenderism and even having sex with animals.
This issue made front page headlines recently after J.K. Rowling posted this on Twitter:
Dress however you please.
Call yourself whatever you like.
Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you.
Live your best life in peace and security.
But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill

This tweet drew backlash from Rowling’s liberal fans. According to The Daily Signal’s Nicole Russell:
Rowling’s level-headed take on this topic may come as a surprise to some, given her history of supporting liberal politicians. But just as surprising are the facts that led to Maya Forstater’s firing.
Forstater, 45, was employed as a tax expert at the Center for Global Development, a British think tank. In 2018, her organization fired her after she posted comments on Twitter that criticized the U.K. government’s plans to let people self-identify according to the gender they choose.
[ … ]
After being fired, she filed a complaint with an employment tribunal and alleged that she was discriminated against on the basis of her beliefs.
She reiterated those beliefs in her witness statement to the tribunal. She said she is “gender critical,” meaning that she believes “‘sex’ is a material reality which should not be conflated with ‘gender’ or ‘gender identity’ and that “being female (or male) is an immutable biological fact, not a feeling or an identity.”
The tribunal rejected her claim. In a lengthy judgment issued on Dec. 18, Judge James Tayler ruled that her view is “not worthy of respect in a democratic society,” calling it “absolutist” and “incompatible with human dignity and fundamental rights of others.” [Emphasis added]
Here is Maya Forstater’s tweet on allowing people to self identify:
UK gov consultation on reforming the #GenderRecognitionAct – proposes to dramatically change scope of the law; from requiring medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria for change of sex on birth certificate, to using the basis of 'self identification' https://t.co/excZ7Pk7dm

First Non-Binary Person Rejects Transgenderism
Jamie Shupe, retired from the Army with the rank of Sergeant First Class. Shupe, who previously identified as transgender, was the first American to obtain nonbinary status under law. In an article titled I Was America’s First ‘Nonbinary’ Person. It Was All a Sham Shupe wrote:
Three years into my gender change from male to female, I looked hard into the mirror one day. When I did, the facade of femininity and womanhood crumbled.
Despite having taken or been injected with every hormone and antiandrogen concoction in the VA’s medical arsenal, I didn’t look anything like a female. People on the street agreed. Their harsh stares reflected the reality behind my fraudulent existence as a woman. Biological sex is immutable.
It took three years for that reality to set in with me. [Emphasis added]
Ayn Rand wrote, “The uncontested absurdities of today are the accepted slogans of tomorrow.”
Jerome Huyler posted on Facebook,
“What are today’s absurdities? Capitalist greed, rampant racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and police brutality, hate speech, income inequality, white privilege, rape culture, toxic masculinity, man-made global climate change, and the many “micro-aggressions” that send our college-aged daffodils searching for safe spaces.”
We must add to this the absurd idea the a man and a woman are biologically the same.
As Alexis de Tocqueville wrote in Democracy in America:
[A]nd if I were asked, now that I am drawing to the close of this work, in which I have spoken of so many important things done by the Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply: To the superiority of their women.
Today America’s disorderly women are in the Democratic Party and are no longer superior. Rather they are slaves to the decadent policies of their political party. As are their weak and decadent men.
