Abandoning Standards: Sacrificing the Rights of the Majority to Appease the Woke Mob

Virginia’s Department of Education is urging school districts throughout the state to work to end as many sex-segregated activities and programs as possible as part of a recently promulgated set of rules aimed at accommodating transgender students statewide.

“Gender-based policies, rules, and practices can have the effect of marginalizing, stigmatizing, and excluding students, regardless of their gender identity or gender expression,” it states, citing “practices that may be based on gender” such as “grouping students for class activities, gender-based homecoming or prom courts, limitations on who can attend as ‘couples’ at school dances, and gender-based events such as father-daughter dances.”

This set of rules that are “aimed at accommodating transgender students” completely disregards the rights of the vast majority of the students who are fully comfortable with their gender and would like to continue participating in “gender-based activities.” Father-daughter dances, proms, and Mother’s Day celebrations bring joy and excitement to the large proportion of the students in the state of Virginia. Why would the Department of Education decide to “stigmatize, marginalize, and exclude” a large majority who like these events, in favor of a tiny minority?

The eternal principle of “majority rules” is dead in American society – and it’s not a good thing. We are sacrificing the rights of the predominant part of the American population to appease the loudly shrieking minority whose day job is creating a sh$t storm on Twitter.

“Marginalizing” has always been a society’s way of encouraging normal behavior. In every society, the majority sets the rules. If you are an atheist living in a predominantly Christian country, you don’t get to tell people to stop celebrating Christmas. You are not required to put up a nativity scene in your own house, but if you don’t want to see one at your local park, then don’t go out of your house at Christmas time. Those days are gone. Today, 10% of the country’s atheists will get financed by George Soros to mount a lawsuit, and the rights of the majority “be damned.”

Before the rise of social media, people generally tried to conform to the norms of society. If you showed up at a local bar with a tattoo of a lizard on your forehead or wearing a pink tutu, people would stay away from you, thus making you feel “marginalized.” And that was society’s way of telling you to reexamine your choices in life.

Now, every “lifestyle” has a social media outlet.  There is a Facebook group for every perversion.  Whether you like cooking recipes out of dog meat, or reading child porn novels, or mutilating your body for fun, there is a Facebook group out there for people who share your interests.  There may be only five of them in the country, but you feel like you are not alone, and therefore, must not be “marginalized, stigmatized, and excluded.”

Now, the whole society must conform to your way of life, for fear of the Twitter mob taking your side and start boycotting businesses that do not cater to people like you. If you feel “marginalized,” the problem is no longer you – the problem is the rest of the country. If the rest of the country does not live the way you live, it must be bigoted, and oppressive, and needs to be given inclusivity training on the virtues of dog eating or whatever. If your “trans” child does not like father-daughter dances, nobody is allowed to have them. If you are a dude who feels comfortable in a women’s section of a spa, then all the other women in this spa are paying for what amounts to sexual assault. If a recently released sex offender wants to live in your neighborhood, he cannot be “marginalized” by the families with young kids who do not want him around. Inclusivity rules.

By abandoning the “majority rules” principle to accommodate a tiny fraction of society, we are normalizing perversions and allowing pernicious ideology to be pushed on our children. Society must set the standards of right and wrong by implementing policies and rules that encourage proper standards of behavior. Father-daughter dances are proper standards. Feminine hygiene products in boys’ bathrooms are not.

  1. Remember when Target banned the Salvation Army bell-ringers because a few persons were uncomfortable with being asked for donations? And then there was the boycott of Chick-fil-A because some of their donations were to organizations considered unfriendly to LBGTQ causes. The Golden Gate Bridge was blocked for 46 minutes in 1989 by a group of 80 protesters called “Stop AIDS Now or Else.” As you suggested in your piece, loud, small groups gain the attention of and manipulate the giant majority and we flinch in some way every time.

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in Bay Area for 30 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.  I am currently a resident of Florida.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.

My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.

Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?

Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.

For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.

And for everything else, thanks to my family.
