In 2018, a judge blocked Idaho from disallowing its citizens the option to change the sex listed on their birth certificate. The court claimed such a law would violate the Equal Protection Clause in the US Constitution, due to such a policy being discriminatory against transgenders.
The Idaho legislature passed a bill defying this ruling on Tuesday. The legislation is now on the governor’s desk waiting to be signed.
The bill makes it so that individuals would only be able to alter a birth certificate within a year of birth.
They also would only be allowed to make a change to the sex of their birth certificate if their was an actual error needing correction. They would not be able to make such changes in order to align the sex on their birth certificate with a supposed gender or sex identity that is not in-line with their biological sex.
It’s clear that allowing anyone to change the sex on their birth certificate based off of an arbitrary self-proclaimed gender identity would have negative consequences.
Alterations to one’s birth certificate that caused a discrepancy between their unchangeable biological sex and the sex/gender listed on their birth certificate creates confusion for gender specific sports, jails/prisons, public facilities (like locker rooms & bathrooms), etc. These are the problems Idaho is trying to avoid.
The bill states that allowing illegitimate changes to birth certificates based on arbitrary gender identity obviously “undermines the government’s interest in having accurate vital records.”
Supporters of the bill, like representative Julianne Young, insist that “safeguarding the accuracy of our vital records is a vital part of preserving the ability of the state to protect the public health and safety.”
This bill isn’t the only Republican backed piece of legislation making waves in Idaho. The House and Senate have also sent Pro-Life legislation to the desk of the governor.
One Pro-Life bill in particular outlaws abortion, if (or when) Roe vs Wade is overturned. It would make it a felony for a doctor to end the life of an unborn child, with few exceptions (rape, incest, & life of the mother).
Bills like these two are similar in that they show both the wild hypocrisy of the Left and the complete lack of concern for vulnerable populations.
The Left claims the mantle of ‘pro-science,’ but rejects clear biological facts. They insist that an offspring of humans is not a human being because of it’s location and deny the obvious biological reality that men are different than women.
They also pretends to be concerned for the most vulnerable. Yet, they ignore the atrocious mass slaughter of the most defenseless humans of all and refuse to defend girls who are forced to share locker rooms with and compete against biological males in sporting events.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
