Kara Dansky, president of the Women's Human Rights Campaign's U.S. Chapter, has set down a bold edict to the Democratic Party: stop promoting the abolition of biological sex or lose votes in next year's elections.
Dansky acknowledged that the United States has obviously become divided over the meaning of the words sex and gender. In the past, then Senator Joe Biden has promoted the LGBTQ struggle for equal rights as "the same basic movement" as the struggle for civil rights was in the 1960s.
A lifelong Democrat and feminist, Dansky isn't buying it.
"My party has been pushing this gender identity agenda in law and throughout society, and it's terrible for women and girls," Dansky told Fox News in a recent interview. "The obliteration of the material reality of biological sex should scare everyone.
"Every single person is either female or male, there's nothing wrong with saying that. How many women and girls have to be hurt before our society ... and our lawmakers acknowledge that?"
Dansky has published a new book on the subject titled, The Abolition of Sex: How the 'Transgender' Agenda Harms Women and Girls.
Fox News reported that "there have been multiple reports of transgender prisoners sexually assaulting female inmates in states that allow inmates to be jailed with the gender they identify with. And in June, a transgender person exposed male genitalia in front of young girls in the women's section of a Los Angeles spa."
"The movement to promote the idea that men can be women is fundamentally anti-feminist," Dansky told Fox News. "It is anti-woman and it is very politically regressive."
Dansky says she is constantly contacted by Democrats who are angry with their party for promoting issues involving gender identity and sexual orientation. The idea of switching their vote to another party, she says, is not just an idle threat, especially with the mid-term elections looming in 2022.
"Some of them say they'll never vote Democrat again, some of them say they have unregistered with the Democratic Party and registered as independents," Dansky says. "I know at least two women who voted for Donald Trump last year because of this issue. If our party leadership doesn't start listening to us, they are really going to lose votes."
