The Girl Guides, the UK equivalent of the Girl Scouts, have decided that transgender female guides (that means males who “identify” as female, even if they are still fully male anatomically) will be allowed to share showers, toilets and changing rooms with young girls on camping trips and other events. Furthermore, it’s not required or even “best practice” to inform the girls’ parents that their daughters might be showering in the woods next to a boy or middle-aged man who claims to be a woman. Granted, the “best practice” would be not doing something this idiotic in the first place, but informing parents of what you’re planning to subject their daughters to would at least come in a close second.
Surprisingly, this wonderful advance for transgender rights is raising objections across the political spectrum. Feminists are upset because they’ve been telling us that we live in a rape culture where all men are potential sexual predators, and now young girls are having their privacy taken away and being forced to share their most intimate activities with biological males. Conservatives are upset because they aren’t insane. This is what happens when you achieve power by dividing people up into identity groups, then pit them against one another for bureaucratic largess. Someone always ends up on the short end of the stick. With the gay/transgender demo currently the #1 fashionable victim group, women have been moved to the rear of the PC bus.
