An article in The Week “Liberals' astonishingly radical shift on gender,” by Damon Linker, addresses the rapid adoption of radical ideologies about sex and gender by large swaths of society. This includes the view that sex is identity based (not biology based), that gender is a spectrum, and that other people should be recruited into validating someone’s chosen 3rd gender pronouns be instituting policies that force people to participate in it.
This article is being tagged to our section on “Cultural Ripple Effects.” There is a discussion in that topic about how some people think, even within the LGBT population, that there are negative cultural impacts of these ideas, namely a glorification of body dismorphia, sexual and gender confusion, and an unhealthy level of focus on identity rather than personal character.
Another article relating to these culture issues appeared in the London Times called “Lesbians face a fight for their very existence.” Janice Turner writes about how these issues effect lesbians the most, from the influences of gender ideology, to the large increase of same-sex attracted females transitioning.
