If you want to know how insane the politics of sexual identity has become, read this from the Daily Wire.  A poll conducted by WhatsGoodly asked a bunch of millennials this question: Should the government “remove children from homes where the parents refuse to provide resources for gender transition?”

Their answers are just shocking:

Fully 18 percent of the 1,402 respondents answered yes; another 27 percent said they were unsure. Among female respondents, a majority stated that children should either be removed from the home (21 percent), or they were unsure (33 percent). A whopping 60 percent of Clinton voters felt the same way; just seven percent of those who voted for Trump said yes, and 15 percent said they were unsure. Among self-described liberals, 47 percent said they were either in favor of government removal (10 percent) or unsure about it (37 percent).

All in all, this means that nearly half of all millennials polled were open to the idea that the government should forcibly intervene in a family if parents refuse to cater to the transgender notions of their children. It should be noted that the question involved no age restrictions.

There’s a lot wrong with this.  Even if you ignore how horrible it is to let your kids “transition” at all, there’s a “self-governance” aspect to this whole issue. In an era when the government is more inept and corrupt than ever, why on earth would young people think this is even remotely a good idea?

As MJ Randolph at Truth Revolt wrote, “Though liberals say they don’t want to push this legislation, libs love big government like an addict likes the pipe. If liberals believe they can push this type of legislation through, they will. Regrettably, according to this poll, looks like all they have to do is wait a few years.”
