But here’s the thing. When you label restrooms or fitting rooms for “women” and “men” and then effectively say that anyone can go into any one at any time based on how they “identify” at that moment, you are undermining one of the most basic lessons that, as a parent, I try to teach my children: that there is truth, and that one can know it.
It’s a lesson the entire culture is doing its darndest to prevent me from teaching. Whether it’s the entertainment industry or the education racket or the nanny state, the powers that be are pretty much united in their goal of so confusing today’s young minds that they’ll unblinkingly accept even the most ridiculous of assertions.
Nevertheless, as a parent, I have to keep trying. So I teach my child that there are boys and girls, and that there is a way to tell the difference. I teach my child there is right and wrong, and that we can know which is which. I teach him that two and two make four, words mean what they say, and that rules are only rules if people actually have to follow them.
Truth Is Not Hate
To Target: the truth is I could respect a policy that simply did away with men’s and women’s bathrooms and made them all unisex. Such a policy would reflect an accurate understanding of the English language and allow me the ability to make a choice based in reality. As it stands, if I enter one of your women’s restrooms or fitting rooms, there is no telling what I will find. That is disrespectful to me as a customer and is a disincentive to shop in your store.
