War of Identity

When we have set up an entire infrastructure that favors people based on things like race and gender, there is an incumbent constituency that will defend the status quo. Perhaps if we just do away with all of that and treat people equally, we would reduce strife.

A new law proposed by the far-left party in Spain’s coalition government would make it easier for residents to change genders for official purposes. A bill sponsored by Equality Minister Irene Montero aims to make gender self-determination — no diagnosis, medical treatment or judge required — the norm, with eligibility starting at age 16. Nearly 20 countries, eight of them in the European Union, already have similar laws.


Factions of the Catholic Church and the far-right have focused their opposition to the bill on the fact that it also would allow children under 16 to bypass parental objections and seek a judge’s assistance in accessing treatment for gender dysphoria, the medical term for the psychological distress that results from a conflict between an individual’s identity and birth-assigned sex.


Less expected has been the fierce resistance from some feminists and from within Spain’s Socialist-led government.


“I’m fundamentally worried by the idea that if gender can be chosen with no more than one’s will or desire, that could put at risk the identity criteria for 47 million Spaniards,” Deputy Prime Minister Carmen Calvo, a veteran Socialist and women’s rights advocate, said last week.


Opponents argue that allowing people to choose their gender eventually would lead to “erasing” women from the public sphere: if more Spaniards registered male at birth switch to female, they say, it would skew national statistics and create more competition among women for everything from jobs to sports trophies.

    A nation composed of special interests perpetually at war with each other is Democrat heaven. They invest heavily in making it so.

  2. Kevin Scheunemann

    Total leftist perversion of reality.

    Nord cheers.

  3. Le Roi du Nord


    Could you point out where I “cheered” ? Or are you lying again?

  4. Kevin Scheunemann


    Will you denounce this identity politics perversion?

    I have yet to see you denounce any obvious and disgusting leftist evils.

  5. Le Roi du Nord

    There you go again k, demanding this from others that you won’t do yourself.

    Awful, just awful. And hypocritical as well.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann


    What are you talking about?

    I constantly denounce the evil of identity politics.

    I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to get you to criticize any form of evil. You constantly punt because you seem to live to wallow in the muck of evil rather than daring to wash it off by taking a clear stand agaibst evil.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    You have never, ever, denounced the evil authoritarians that incited, encouraged, promoted, and now acquitted the evil January 6 assault on democracy resulting in the death of a law enforcement office and injuries to many others. Hypocrite.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    I have many times!

    Especially the disgusting registered Democrat and Delaware Biden supporter, Kevin Seefried, carrying the confederate flag, and attacking the Capitol. I counted at least 5 denouncements of evil on Jan 6th on my Facebook page alone!

    You, on other hand, run interference for grandma killers, like Cuomo and their cover ups!

    Do you denounce identity politics and properly judge individual agency and action…or are you continuing in your moral cowardice?

    Kevin, you are trying too hard to argue with a troll.
    An uneducated first grade drop out troll. A lying troll. A troll full of hatred and vile. A perverted troll. A narrsisitic troll.
    He’s just a horrible, horrible person.

  10. Le Roi du Nord


    Looks like another swing and miss for you:

    And when did I ever ” run interference for grandma killers, like Cuomo and their cover ups!” Provide proof, facts would be a bonus.


    Wrong again, little fella, in soooo many ways. But you must be used to that, eh?

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    That is a “fact check”? Looks more like dripping liberals tcked off their guy got caught!

    Denounce Cuomo for all his policy killings in nursing homes right now if you are not running interference for him! He was awful.

  12. Le Roi du Nord

    So k, do you have some alternative “facts” to prove your point, or are you just making stuff up again?

    Still demanding denouncements, eh?

  13. Mar

    Wrong again, little fella, in soooo many ways”?
    What did I get wrong Troll boy?
    You are uneducated. You challenged me to see who was more educated and you acted like your usual coward self and backed down.
    A lying troll? Well, we’ve established that youre a first class liar here and that is not even debsteable.
    That you are full of hate and vile? Well, clearly, you hate President Trump and me. Why else would you lie about what I have said and name calling President Trump is also a sign of hate.
    You are narrsisitic? You tell us too much about yourself, like supposedly getting the Chinese virus vaccine. Who cares.
    A perverted troll? Well, that maybe iffy, but hey, you say false things about me, so I didn’t think you will of mind.
    So, what is wrong?

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    So mar, you are still wrong, all wrong, on every point. And that isn’t debatable. Yes, that is the correct spelling.

    And no, I don’t hate anyone, not even you.

    Now grow up.

  15. Mar

    Oh Troll boy, I heard this about your home:
    Le Roi’s home is where men are men and the pre- teens run scared.
    But keep on playing Troll boy. Keep on adding nothing to a conversation and repeating the same old tired line.

  16. Le Roi du Nord

    You don’t know where I live, so you lied about everything. Does that make you feel better?

  17. Mar

    Is this a challenge for me to doxx you?
