I recently happened upon two articles that, while seemingly similar, resulted in different outcomes.

The first article involved a woman who felt uncomfortable when a transgendered man was in the women’s locker room. The individual was male and looked male, but identified as a woman.

The second article involved a college woman who felt uncomfortable around a male student who resembled a man who had raped her.

In this era of political correctness, it seems that it’s enough merely to feel uncomfortable about someone in order to completely upend that person’s life. The male student, who had done absolutely nothing wrong, was thoroughly investigated and, even after nothing untoward was discovered, was hit with a restraining order and forced to keep a distance from the woman because it would create a “sexually hostile environment.” This man had his life utterly disrupted for no other reason than because he looked like someone else.

Following the logic of political correctness, one would imagine that the transgendered individual, who had created a potential “sexually hostile environment” as well, would be banned from using the women’s locker room. One would be wrong. The woman who felt uncomfortable had her membership cancelled.

How could two instances where a woman felt unsafe have such different outcomes? Because it seems that while a woman’s rights trump a man’s, the rights of a man who claims to be a woman trump a woman’s. This is what happens with political correctness. It’s easier to snub a woman than it is someone from the LGBQTWXYZ camp, and it’s easier to snub a man than it is a woman. It has absolutely nothing to do any more with what’s right and what’s wrong, but with what group it’s more expedient to side with.

In a fair world, the poor student whose only transgression was being born looking a certain way would not have been put through all that. Yes, it’s unfortunate that he looks like the man who raped the female student, but that’s not his fault; he should not have to pay such a steep price for that.

And in a fair world, Planet Fitness would have done its best to provide a safe place for all. A company that prides itself on its “gender identity non-discrimination policy” would not just have a men’s and women’s locker room. Isn’t the company tacitly admitting that there are only two genders by not having alternate locker rooms for those who may not identify as either male or female? After all, according to Facebook, there are fifty-eight different gender identities. If any of those don’t cover it, they also have a “fill-in-the-blank” option. Why is no one going after Planet Fitness for not creating an environment where people of any gender can feel comfortable? So much for a “judgment-free zone.”


I’m a conservative, and I’m pro-choice.

I believe a woman can choose when she wants to have sex.
I believe a woman can choose whom she wishes to have sex with.
I believe a woman can choose where she wants to have sex.
I believe a woman can choose how and why she wants to have sex.
I even believe a woman can choose what kind of protection to use, or even whether to use it.

But once a woman gets pregnant, choice is over and it’s time for consequences.

I originally planned on writing a cute little allegory comparing sex to a party and children to vases (trust me, it made sense), but the situation is too serious to couch in parables and metaphors. There is a genocide occurring in the United States, and it is not only tolerated, but has been legalized by our government. Over a million unborn children are killed yearly in this country. That’s more than 3,000 deaths per day. Per. Day. Imagine 9/11 happening every day for the last 42 years.

In general, most women decided to have abortions because of the following reasons, none of which is even remotely good enough to warrant the taking of a life:
a) a baby would have interfered with other responsibilities
b) they couldn’t afford the child
c) they didn’t want to be single parents

(Note: This does not include rape, incest, or fetal/maternal health, which make up less than 2% of abortions.)

The consequences of an unplanned pregnancy should not be paid by the unborn child. And yet, millions of innocent children have paid that price. In the time it has taken you to read up to this point, an average of 60 abortions have taken place in this country.

Here is a behind-the-scenes look at what is going on in some of these abortion clinics: (Warning: some viewers may be disturbed by this video – although everyone should find the content disturbing.)

On January 22, there will be celebrations honoring the 42nd anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision. Even some churches are celebrating this “milestone.” But here’s the truth. This is not a celebration of choice. It’s a celebration of death. Since the Roe vs. Wade decision, over 50,000,000 babies have been killed in the U.S. That’s 5 cities with a population the size of New York City.

Right now, it’s trendy and socially conscious to chant or tweet #BlackLivesMatter. But here’s a sobering fact. Of the 50,000,000 babies that have been aborted, 16,000,000 of those have been black babies. That’s over 30% of the total from a group that comprises 13% of the population. 80% of Planned Parenthood clinics are in minority neighborhoods. Black lives matter, but only once they’re born?

Shouldn’t we say #AllLivesMatter? Shouldn’t we stop the slaughter? Shouldn’t we be defending the most defenseless among us?
