Which is more important to you, the “right” of a man to “identify” as a woman and use the ladies’ restroom, or the safety of little girls. For most Progressives, including the ACLU, the obvious answer is to support the “trans-woman”. For some Progressives who have daughters, that answer isn’t so obvious:
“The African-American woman who leads a state chapter of the ACLU has resigned, citing her own daughters’ ‘frightened’ reaction to biological males using the women’s restroom.
“The organization’s increasing focus on legislating the transgender lobby’s concerns pushed Maya Dillard Smith, interim director of the Georgia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, to tender her resignation.
“‘I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered,’ she wrote.
“‘My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer,’ she continued.
“In a statement, she said that the ACLU has become ‘a special interest organization that promotes not all, but certain progressive rights.’
“The ‘hierarchy of rights’ the ACLU chooses to defend or ignore, she wrote, is ‘based on who is funding the organization’s lobbying activities.’ She did not elaborate on the group’s funding.”
The Progressive Left are obsessed with hierarchies stemming from their concept of “intersectionality” and “Kyriarchy,” whereby the further you are removed from the morally impure White “cis-het” male, the more morally pure your are, and thus more worthy of defending.
A “trans” person is considered more oppressed than a Black female child, thus organizations like the ACLU will side against Blacks and women, who in this situation are considered to have “power and privilege”, and side with the “oppressed” “trans-woman” who is somehow powerless and disadvantaged despite being able to force society at large to accept the lie that a man is a woman, as an axiomatic truth.
Unsurprisingly, this woman was called “‘lazy,’ ‘ill-educated,’ and a ‘b–ch’ who needs to sit down and ‘STFU.'” Imagine a White “cis-het” male saying something like that? Of course not, but such hateful language is completely acceptable when used against a traitor to the Progressive faith.
