Here’s the first, thanks to my friend Ryan Anderson. If Saturday Night Live ran this sketch today, heads would likely roll:
Could Saturday Night Live do this sketch today? https://t.co/LT6VxAFVnk— Ryan T. Anderson (@RyanTAnd) May 19, 2016
If you don’t have time to watch, Rob Schneider plays “Jennifer Kenton,” a college student rooming with three women. The sketch is mildly amusing, featuring Schneider continually suggesting that the roommates all take a shower and walk around in their underwear — and then expressing mock indignation when they accuse him of being a man. It’s “transphobic” from start to finish.
The second video – from the Family Policy Institute of Washington – features interviews with Seattle University students regarding gender:
When you watch, the students struggle to answer whether there is any difference between men and women. Some answers:
“Umm. No? Yes? I mean possibly in general yes. But I don’t know why I think that.”
“Socially, currently, yes there is. There is no need for that difference to exist scientifically and logically.”
“If you think that you’re a male, or if you think you’re a female, that matters more than the biological difference.”
“There’s not much difference besides what society forces on people.”
It’s amusing to watch the students then identify the interviewer as a man — but immediately feel awkward about their stereotyping. Finally, they opine on whether there the difference between men and women matters, “for any reason.” The answers:
“Umm, no not really.”
“Most sociologists agree that the concept of gender is a societal construct.”
“To me? No. I don’t feel as if it matters to me because at the end of the day the person is just a person.”
“No, I don’t think it should matter.”
“The differences on a social level are just products of a biased society.”
It’s hard to deny reality, but these students give it a valiant effort. And to think — this nonsense now has the force of law, sanctioned as objective “fact” by the Department of Justice. It didn’t take long for progressives to lose their minds.
