There are few issues that as clearly highlight the Religious Right’s undisguised bigotry quite like transgender equality as it is a topic that people like Matt Barber and Mat Staver can’t even discuss except with sneering contempt, as they did on today’s “Faith and Freedom” radio broadcast.
Barber and Staver are disgusted by the fact that the Office of Personnel Management has issued guidelines (dating back to 2011) “Regarding the Employment of Transgender Individuals in the Federal Workplace,” which Barber said is nothing more than a full-scale “War on Woman” through which sexual harassment has now been legalized:
We’re talking about men in skirts here. That’s what we’re talking about. Let’s just not beat around the bush with all the PC nonsense that the Left likes to use, transgender, transsexual, we’re talking about men in skirts and high heels and lipstick that want to go in – some of them because they get their jollies doing it, others because they’re completely and utterly sexually confused – they want to go in an use the ladies showers and the ladies locker rooms whether or not they’re biologically still or whether or not they’ve had a surgery to cosmetically make them appear more like a female, which they never do. People can pretty much look and still tell this is a man that has gone under the knife. It’s really sad.
But here, President Obama and this Obama administration, talk about the War on Women, they have now officially made for federal employees sexual harassment the law of the land. This creates an environment where now women cannot even comfortably use a bathroom or the showering facilities and locker facilities without fear that some man, leering man, is gonna be there in the locker room or the bathrooms along with them and that is sexual harassment because if they feel harassed and made uncomfortable by that, sexual harassment is a subjective analysis here, they’re being sexually harassed.
Talk about the War on Women, President Obama has launched one.
