The elections in Virginia last night were not a blow to the president’s popularity as some leftist-mongers in the media would have Americans believe. All of these liberals were expected to win. Remember, Hillary actually won the state by five points, so perhaps being within the proximity of D.C., some of the rank ideas have seeped into the state over time. The real kicker last night was the election of a person with a mental disorder.
Virginia House of Delegates candidate Danica Roem (D) defeated Robert Marshall (R) to become the Virginia’s first openly transgender elected official. The 13th district vote is thrilling leftists who think that he could become the first person elected to a state legislator with the disorder.
Roem won in a district that Hillary carried by 14 points last year, so there’s really no wondering where their loyalties lie. But, before he entered the political ring, he worked as a reporter for the Gainesville Times and the Prince William Times.
Liberals are beside themselves over the win. Virginia House Democratic Caucus Leader David J. Toscano and Caucus Chairwoman Charniele Herring said in a statement, “Danica will bring a reporter’s eye to Richmond, and we eagerly anticipate her results-oriented approach to deliver for her constituents in the 13th.”
They added, “As a journalist, Danica Roem has covered the issues critical to Virginians and listened to a wide range of perspectives. During her campaign, Danica expanded this approach by listening to area residents’ concerns and making them integral to her own policy platform.”
The move marks a serious win for the haters of normalcy and morality. People who support transgender rights do so out of ignorance. Leading psychologists have stated that a gender transformation is “biologically impossible.”
The one half of one percent of the American population who believe that they are the opposite gender or no gender whatsoever (expect for the rare case of being born androgynous), suffer from a mental disorder similar to anorexia, according to Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry.
These people believe something that does not conform to reality. In a sense, it is a delusion. That is why so many people who identify as transgender have been charged with rapes, murders, and other violent crimes. Eventually, other delusional beliefs are acted out. Consider the recent case of a transgender man sexually assaulting a child in the women’s bathroom.
Of course, this truth isn’t politically correct, and therefore is shamed by the media and other rabid activists. Marshall was defeated for taking a stand against a culture change that kowtows to a bunch of mentally disturbed people.
He thanked his supporters saying, “For 26 years I’ve been proud to fight for you, and fight for our future. Though we all wish tonight would have turned out differently, I am deeply grateful for your support and effort over the years,” adding, “I’m committed to continue the fight for you, but in a different role going forward.”
He had previously authored the “Physical Privacy Act,” a bill that would require people to use public restroom based on biological gender identification, not some imaginary feeling. He explained that the move was designed to protect young girls from predators who would enter women’s restrooms.
Another discrepancy that transgender rights activists seem to ignore is the unequal treatment such a belief establishes. For example, if a teen boy decides to become a “girl,” he can compete on sports teams against other real girls. That isn’t equal opportunity.
Marshall had previously referred to himself as the state’s “chief homophobe.” He refused to debate Roem and referred to him by his biological gender. Perhaps such adherence to moral uprightness was what did him in.
It’s important for conservatives to remember that Virginia is now gone. There is no reclaiming a state that willingly elects liberals and a transgender to create their laws. It’s possible that an influx of residents to other states that still protect the sanctity of gender will occur.
