HANDS ACROSS THE AISLE: Biology Isn’t Bigotry: Remarks from a Hands Across the Aisle Member

HANDS ACROSS THE AISLE: Biology Isn’t Bigotry: Remarks from a Hands Across the Aisle Member

by Emily Zinos

"Are we the generation of parents who will allow our young and vulnerable children to be fed a false anthropology rather than take the time to tell them they are beautifully and wonderfully made?

Are we the generation of parents who will consent to our children’s sterilization rather than patiently guide them towards an appreciation of their bodies?

Are we the generation of parents who will treat our children’s mental health issues with double mastectomies rather than seeking out a true remedy?

The women of Hands Across the Aisle answer with a resolute NO to each and every one of these questions. As a practicing Catholic and mother of seven, I certainly disagree with my radical feminist sisters in this coalition on many issues, believe me. But I’m honored to join forces with them for the sake of protecting vulnerable children and I thank them for their intelligent and insightful criticisms of gender identity as a threat to women in law and culture.

At Hands Across the Aisle, we hope to start conversations that will get people thinking critically about gender identity and we hope to embolden women to speak up for the hard-earned rights they will lose if gender identity is allowed to eclipse sex. I hope you will join me in saying NO to the ideology of gender wherever you see it, but most especially in schools where it strikes at the very heart of what it means to educate."
