More proof showing that just because you have a degree does not make you intelligent. In fact, the more I see of these self-proclaimed "highly educated" liberals, the more I think they are just highly ignorant (or indoctrinated - same thing).

Poll: 77% of Democrats with 4-Year Degrees Think Sex Not Determined at Birth

Three out of four college-educated Democrats seem to believe that a man can be a woman if he just says so, regardless of his biology, genetics, and genitalia, according to a skewed survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.

The main question in the August-to-September survey of 4,573 people is built on the phrase: “sex assigned at birth.” But that phrase was invented by transgender activists to help them claim that every person’s sex is independent of their biology and that a newborn’s sex should not be unfairly “assigned” by the doctors and parents who examine the newborns’ biology and visible genitalia. The Pew survey asked:

Quote:
Which statement comes closer to your views, even if neither is exactly right?

Whether someone is a man or a woman is determined by the sex they were assigned at birth

Someone can be a man or a woman even if that is different from the sex they were assigned at birth


According to Pew’s write-up:

Quote:
The survey … finds that Democrats with a bachelor’s degree or more education are more likely than other Democrats to say a person’s gender can be different from the sex they were assigned at birth. About three-quarters (77%) of Democrats with a bachelor’s degree or more say this, compared with 60% of Democrats with some college and 57% of those with a high school diploma or less. No such [education] divide exists among Republicans.

Most African-Americans and a large percentage of Latinos seem to disagree that the parents and doctors’ are just guessing. According to Pew:

Code:
    Democrats’ views also differ by race and ethnicity. Some 55% of black Democrats and 41% of Hispanic Democrats say a person’s gender is determined by their sex assigned at birth, a view shared by just 24% of white Democrats.

Republicans prefer to rely on the expertise of doctors and parents, according to the survey, which showed that:

Quote:
eight-in-ten Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say that whether someone is a man or a woman is determined by the sex they were assigned at birth [but] most Democrats and Democratic leaners (64%) take the opposite view and say a person’s gender can be different from the sex they were assigned at birth.

Political party is closely tied to views on transgender issues

However, the Pew results may be utterly unrepresentative of reality, partly because few Americans are familiar with the “sex assigned at birth.”

Also, the clause — “even if that is different from the sex they were assigned at birth” — is very vague, and may be interpreted by many respondents as referring to a adult person who undergoes cosmetic surgery of the genitalia, rather than a person who simply claims to have the “gender identity” of an opposite-sex person.

Pew’s decision to pretend that genitalia has nothing to do with a person’s sex mimics the transgender ideology, which claims that the government must force ordinary Americans to agree whenever a man or women say they are members of the opposite sex, regardless of biology, language or the inevitable civic conflicts.

Pew’s decision to reject biology also may undermine Pew’s polls, which often show that women and men hold different views on political and cultural issues. For example, Anna Brown, the Democratic, white, college-graduate and political activist who described the Pew poll, does not include any data in her report showing whether men and women have different views on the transgender demand that government must restrain women from excluding men-wh0-say-they-are-women from their sports clubs, showers, shelters and other female institutions.

In contrast to Pew’s staff, multiple polls show that most Americans wish to help and comfort people who think they are a member of the opposite sex but they also reject the transgender ideology’s claim that a person’s sex is determined by their feeling of “gender identity,” not by their biology.

Activists who support the transgender ideology claim that 0.35 percent of Americans are transgender. A study of the 2010 Census reported that only 1-in-2,300 adult Americans had changed their name from one sex to the other.

Critics say there is no evidence that a person’s feelings of “gender” are independent of their sex and biology, and Americans see no problem when some boys act like most girls, and girls can act like most boys. Medical experts also point out that the sex-related drugs taken by children, and the surgery used to change a person’s sexual appearance make that person infertile. The drugs also threaten the health of children and adults. Many people who try to switch sex later accept their normal sex, despite extensive health damage.

Conservatives oppose the transgender ideology as a threat to civic and government recogniti0n that the two sexes — men and women — are different, equal and complementary. This long-standing civic recognition allows people to create single-sex institutions — such as single-sex sports teams, education courses or shelters for battered women.

It also allows parents and citizens to preserve the social expectations about each person’s duties, accomplishments, efforts, and ideals — such as beauty or strength, aggressiveness or caring – which complement the different bodies and characters, abilities and preferences, of girls and boys and of adult women and men.

The long-standing existence of different social expectations for male and female people are opposed by feminists and progressives. The two-sex society, say feminists, unfairly inhibits university-educated women who wish to compete against men for professional status and pay. Also, people who want to live as members of the other sex say those two-sex expectations stigmatize their cross-sex desires. Together, the two groups are working with gay advocacy groups to blur the distinctions between the two sexes and to demand a “gender-free” society where the government would block any legal or civic recognition of the distinctions between male and female.

So far, progressive media has been loath to recognize the radical demands of the transgender ideology. For example, a November 11 article in the Washington Post portrayed the dispute as a collision of tribal political identities instead of a political disagreement over civic ideals, parenting, privacy, women’s’ rights, science, and healthcare.

The progressive push to bend Americans’ attitudes and their two-sex civic society around the idea of “gender identity” has already attacked and cracked popular social rules for how Americans handle the many social preferences of equal, different and complementary men and women, boys and girls.

For example, the gender claims have shifted rules or practices about different-sex bathrooms, shelters for battered women, sports leagues for girls, hiking groups for boys, K-12 curricula, university speech codes, religious freedoms, free speech, the social status of women, parents’ rights in childrearing, practices to help teenagers, women’s expectations of beauty, culture and civic society, scientific research, prison safety, civic ceremonies, school rules, men’s sense of masculinity, law enforcement, and children’s sexual privacy and health.

The CDC and American Medical Association estimate that the world transgender population is roughly .06% of people. American, white, coastal liberals disagree and estimate this number to be roughly 40% of the population. Tells you all you need to know. There were like 6 "trannys" in my kids high school of 1200 people. That is simply impossible given the real data from real doctors/scientists. Young white democrats are a cancer right now in this country. The males are feminine and believe that cops kill black men every hour on the hour and that women CEO's make minimum wage. The rally for untruths that have ZERO effect on them- they "protest" instead of work and call one of the worlds largest historical capitalists a "fascist".. it's a huge problem- thanks Obama.

Little children, idiots and socialists decide that if they WANT something to be true....it is.

Like global warming.
Like police slaughter of innocent unarmed black men.
Like russian collusion.
Like the wonders of diversity.
Like fat hillary is a champion for women.

Like you can choose you sex and your race on a whim.

This is america. You can grow up to be anything you want to be.

Except sex is NOT assigned at birth!

It's assigned at CONCEPTION. The moment the gametes first form a zygote, the winning sperm adds either an X or a Y chromosome to the party and determines the sex of the organism to be created.

A person may decide later (MUCH later) that they want to live as a different gender, but they're ALWAYS going to have the chromosomes with which they were born. SEX is scientific and determined by biology. GENDER may be changed, with or without surgery, but it needs to be done by jumping through a LOT more hoops than simply declaring, “I want to be a woman and you should call me Loretta from now on.”

Live how you want to live, as long as you're not hurting anyone else. But if you aren't honest about what you're doing, you don't get to be upset when a new partner reacts adversely when discovering your deceit. Most dudes don't want to hook up and find a twig and berries surprise. They may beat the shït out of you. You can press assault charges, but they're never going to want to speak to you again after that, and that's something you have to deal with.

I posted a link a while ago to a study in Sweden which found the number of transgender children doubled....every year for the last several years.

This is almost entirely a mental disease parents are inflicting on their kids.
