USA Today has determined that calling a man a “male” is “hurtful.”
What an in-your-face to the Creator of the Universe.
Genesis 1:27 proclaims: So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
The situation arose because of a commentary written by Chelsea Mitchell, one of several female athletes in Connecticut who filed a lawsuit after the state decided that boys, if they call themselves girls, can compete on girls’ sports teams. She’s represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom, which noted online,
On May 22, USA Today published an opinion piece from Alliance Defending Freedom client Chelsea Mitchell (Soule v. Connecticut Association of Schools) about the injustice she experienced as an athlete who was forced to compete against males in track. On May 25, editors at USA Today, without notice to Chelsea, changed the word ‘male’ to ‘transgender’ throughout her piece and added the following editor’s note to the top of it: This column has been updated to reflect USA TODAY’s standards and style guidelines. We regret that hurtful language was used.
Fox reported that Mitchell’s lawyer, Christiana Holcomb, “accused the media organization of ‘unilaterally’ changing Mitchell’s words after acquiescing to ‘backlash from the woke mob.'”
“USA Today violated its principles to appease the mob. This blatant censorship violates the trust we place in media to be honest brokers of public debate,” Holcomb said.
Mitchell has graduated, but remains in the fight.
“It is a big issue,” she contends. “Personally, I lost a lot, but there were countless other girls that also lost state championships. I believe there were 15 state championships that the two biological males took from biological females. And there were more than 85 girls that missed out on opportunities to advance in medal and make finals. And so it’s not just me, girls across the state were being impacted by this policy.”
This “woke” generation is certainly proving this passage from the New Testament to be totally true: For they exchanged the truth of God for falsehood, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen (Romans 1:25).
I know my woke Christian critics will be upset at me for my language, but these people are idiots.
