The 'Transgender Tipping Point' to Censorship
Now that our cultural elites feel they have sufficiently educated the public on the virtues of gays and lesbians, it’s time to drill down to the next level. Here comes transgenderism. Time magazine placed “Orange Is the New Black” star Laverne Cox (born as Charles Cox) on the cover as the face of “The Transgender Tipping Point: America’s Next Civil Rights Frontier.”
Cox wrote on Facebook that the Time cover was a wonderful present on his birthday and "I realize this is way bigger than me and about a tipping point in our nation's history where it is no longer acceptable for trans lives to be stigmatized, ridiculed, criminalized and disregarded.’
Beware the words “tipping point.” That means Americans will no longer be allowed to express dissent, moral or otherwise, about the choice to discard the oppressive “gender binary” and be whichever blend of genders you choose. Disagree, and you “stigmatize” and “dehumanize” people. You deny them “civil rights.” You "criminalize" the innocent.
Washington Post culture blogger Alyssa Rosenberg celebrated this as just like Time’s helpful 1997 “Yep, I’m Gay” cover for Ellen DeGeneres. “Cox is helping viewers connect a set of issues that might have been abstract to them with the lived experience of someone they admire.”
Or as NPR reporter Neda Ulaby instructed in a glowing profile of Cox, her women’s-prison drama “‘Orange Is The New Black’ has won a Peabody for illuminating people too-often dehumanized by their incarceration or their perceived gender difference.”
Once again, the show laughably calling itself All Things Considered kept its LGBT propaganda unfettered by any consideration of a socially conservative critique.
