Is He Really She

    Just responded to Jo Ann Skousen’s article on LibertyUnbound called “Is He Really She.”

    Here is the comment I wrote:

    Mrs. Skousen, I look forward to your reviews. They are intelligent, well written, and informative. Though we’ve never met, I consider you one of my liberty-loving friends.

    My heart aches when I see something like this coming from one of my liberty-loving friends. Although I know that you are not intolerant and narrow-minded, in this article, you’ve come off that way. That’s because, in this article, you are that way.

    You close by saying And he will never know what it feels like to be a woman. This may be true. But it is also true that you’ll never know what it feels like to be a man who, as a fetus, was “imprinted” by hormones to be a woman.

    And I’ll never know what it feels like to be a woman without the right to hold property. Or a black man that might be owned by another. I’ll never really know what any of those feel like. But I’m a libertarian, so I don’t need to know what those feel like in order to know that every human deserves the basic rights to live their lives in liberty.

    As white people socialized with black people they discovered that there were human beings deserving of respect and liberty. As gays have come out of the closet, straights have discovered that they are human beings deserving of respect and liberty.

    As society understands the transgendered, their rights to respect and liberty will be obvious to all. It is only right that libertarians are among the first, not the last, to recognize this.

    We need to be on the side of those courageously fighting for dignity and liberty. To be otherwise is to be untrue to the best within us and, ultimately, to be on the wrong side of history.

    I don’t know if my comment will be approved, but I wanted to share it here on liberty.me.
