One of the most difficult parts of living in a free society is that not everyone will agree with your lifestyle. Maybe I am old school, but I always saw the United States as the great melting pot of people, ideas, and culture. We don’t all have to agree, yet we all share the same equal protection under the law. Liberty is not just accepting people you agree with, but coming to common ground with those you may not. Discourse is what sets us apart from totalitarianism.
The Constitution protects our rights to live as we deem fit, to pursue our way of life in a way that we desire, to raise our children with our own family values. I applaud Moms for Liberty for honoring liberty by allowing all voices to come to the table. Christine Rebstock shared her story of life as a transexual and how coming out as a transexual woman was both difficult and necessary. We had an open and honest conversation about gender ideology, medical transitioning, children, and women’s spaces. Moms for Liberty gets flack from the left, the right, and the feminists. Everyone is pointing a finger at parents who just want to have their views, and their rights respected. Since when have we given our autonomy away to a mob? Any mob for that matter? When it comes to children, parent’s rights come before government. A school teacher or administrator is not qualified to be the middleman between families and their children.
I was disappointed to see ad hominem attacks against Moms for Liberty for having Christine be a part of their recent symposium from people who were not there and have no idea about the discussion or the events that happened. This comes from women I follow online because I respect their work on the issue of gender ideology and the erasure of women’s spaces and sports. I agree with them, women must have their own space, that biological reality must always be respected. Children are too young to make major decisions about their bodies that cannot be undone. No one is born in the wrong body.
I part ways with them to sit with Christine and have a conversation. Christine is a human being with a story to share. Take a listen.
