'Gender X' bill rooted in superstition, not reality

gender confusion 2A pro-family organization sees through the lines as the homosexual movement pushes to destroy the boundaries of the sexes and the family in Massachusetts.

Lawmakers in the commonwealth are considering the "Gender X" bill (Bill H. 2664), which would allow people to identify as gender neutral on their drivers licenses, birth certificates, and applications for public assistance. But C.J. Doyle of the Catholic Action League of Massachusetts thinks "it's a lunatic idea."

"The very concept of gender identity is artificial, subjective, fluid, and really potentially open-ended," he summarizes. "Legislation and public policy really ought to be rooted in objective reality, not in some recently contrived, politically correct superstition which promotes this entirely irrational belief that people can actually change their own gender."

He says making these changes would be an open invitation for fraud and abuse, and passage of the measure would hamper law enforcement as well as medical personnel in emergency situations.

"The heavy group here in Massachusetts, the powerful interest group that's pushing this, isn't the small number of people who are so-called transgendered; it's the larger homosexual movement, which, of course, is a major contributor to members of both parties, particularly the Democratic Party, and of course has great influence on the media," Doyle relays. "The homosexual movement is pushing this."

He sees it as an attempt to destroy the distinction between sexes and holy matrimony and adds that transgender people's psychological gender dysphoria ought to be treated rather than officially accommodated by the government.
