What can’t a person identify as today, now that Leftists have blown open the identity floodgates?
Rachel Dolezal identifies as black.
She’s not black, and didn’t even need to run her Ancestry.com to prove it. Her own family outed Dolezal as a fraud. A white woman “passing” for black. And Leftists were fine with the ruse; even the fact that Dolezal stole more than black identity, but good-paying black jobs.
Elizabeth Warren may be the most famous non-Indian in the world.
She claimed “Native American” heritage for decades. Who knows how many opportunities Warren stole from legitimate minorities, as she claims she never used her ethnic “non-identity” to get ahead. Except for all the times that she did. As we chronicled, it was Warren who outed herself, proving she isn’t a legit Indian.
And what of the transsexuals, particularly men who become women?
The most notable, Caitlyn Jenner was made Woman of the Year. Another male-turned-female is accused of “fathering” babies in the women’s prison. I know, right? When it came time for sentencing, this particular inmate weighed his, no “her,” options and declared to be a woman. A Lesbian in fact. Only this woman can get other women pregnant. Again, I know, right?
Other obviously confused individuals enter women’s sports where these “women” dominate the biological women. MMA, track, and soon it will be all sports. Leftists allow this, though recently the softer sex started to complain. The list of peculiarities is endless when it comes to Leftism, gender and sexuality. The PC thing to do is let people be whatever they believe themselves to be.
And now that appears to include age.
Sixty-nine year Emile Ratelband claims he is discriminated against because of his age on a daily basis. Thus, he started a legal battle to reduce his age by 20 years.
Ratelband contends he will have more work opportunities and attract more women by legally reducing his age and is suing his local authority after they refused to amend his age on official documents.
If transgender people are allowed to change sex, Ratelband argues, the should be allowed to change his birth date.
More from Daily Mail:
‘When I’m 69, I am limited. If I’m 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different car. I can take up more work. ‘When I’m on Tinder and it says I’m 69, I don’t get an answer. When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position.
‘Transgender people can now have their gender changed on their birth certificate, and in the same spirit there should be room for an age change.’
He complains that companies are reluctant to hire someone the age of a pensioner as a consultant. And he says his move would also be good news for the government as he would be renouncing his pension until he reaches retirement age again.
The judge said that he had some sympathy with Mr. Ratelband as people could now change their gender which would once have been unthinkable. But the court said there would be practical problems in allowing people to change their birth date and it would mean legally deleting part of their lives.
While the court is planning out their ruling, I’m wondering why more liberals didn’t jump on this bandwagon during midterms. Imagine if you could legally delete years of your life?
It would be a GAME CHANGER.
Did pay your bills for 5 years? Rewind the clock. Skipped out on your child support? Rewind the clock. Looking to remove those pesky drug convictions from your criminal record. You guess it. Rewind the clock.
Imagine if Beto O’Rourke added this idea to his campaign? Perhaps he’d be the new Texas senator.
It’s true, research lends to the idea that people typically become more conservative as they age. Psychology Today attributes this to the fact that older people have more defined principles and easily abide by them. So, if being conservative is a sign of age, the only way to break that is to live by the opposite set of rules. And liberals are definitely the opposite of rules. Therefore, living life as a leftist is nothing short of swimming in the Fountain of Youth.
Still, it might not be the left’s worst idea. I make a moderate income, but I’d rather spend like I’m a millionaire. Can I just change my bank account figure too?
I might go ahead and identify as 66. That way, I can start collecting my state pension.
