French Friday: Transgenderism & Parental Rights
It’s becoming increasingly clear that parental rights is poised to be a significant issue in the 2024 election, particularly as it relates to transgenderism and gender-affirming healthcare. Skye Jethani talks to David French about his recent editorial that provoked a backlash from both ends of the political spectrum. French explains why recent efforts in California and Texas, which take opposite positions on youth transgenderism, both violate the long-affirmed rights of parents to make healthcare decisions for their own children without government interference. Is it another case of both the Right and Left embracing illiberal and unconstitutional tactics to fight the Culture War? Or, does the rise of transgenderism among kids demand the government’s intervention regardless of what parents want? 0:00 - Theme Song 5:22 - Don’t Let the Culture War Degrade the Constitution 11:00 - Parental Rights in California 21:47 - Parental Rights in Texas 33:52 - Kaylee McGhee White’s Critique 46:52 - Navigating the polarization of our communities 1:01:40 - End Credits Links mentioned in interview Don’t Let the Culture War Degrade the Constitution https://www.nytimes.com/2023/03/12/opinion/newsom-desantis-walgreens-constitution.html Yes, the state has both the right and the responsibility to restrict gender ideology https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/restoring-america/patriotism-unity/yes-the-state-has-both-the-right-and-the-responsibility-to-restrict-gender-ideology Other resources: David French: https://twitter.com/DavidAFrench https://www.holypost.com/ Support us and find premium content by going to https://www.patreon.com/holypost The Holy Post is supported by our listeners.
