Progressive activists and their allies in the mainstream media are right now telling us that only the unenlightened or unfit for society fail to see that 65-year-old Bruce Jenner – a world record-setting gold medalist in the 1976 Olympics’ men’s decathlon and father of six who recently grew out his hair, took a cocktail of hormone pills, purchased $70,000 in facial feminization surgery and a pair of silicone D-cups, and changed his name to "Caitlyn" – is now a bona fide woman.

For the rest of his life, he will carry the chromosomal makeup of a man.  But biology, they tell us, is inconsequential.

What’s important, they say, is believing what we’re told.

...The drama surrounding Jenner’s transition plays out across the nation on a smaller scale every time someone decides to reject the cards biology dealt them.  Families are torn apart as children lose their mom or dad, or parents lose their son or daughter.

...Meanwhile, the rest of us are expected to carry on as if nothing is wrong, or even out of the ordinary.  Schools and businesses are forced to permit biological males to use female-only toileting and shower facilities, regardless of how women and girls may feel about it.  Female athletes are forced to compete against biological males, regardless of the added risk to their safety.  And the thought police are ever on the march, seeking to ruin the lives and careers of those who dare to question the sanity of any of it.
