In October 2017, I wrote about how how Grammy winning singer Sam Smith described his sexuality:

I’ve got loads of heels at home…

People don’t know this, but when I was 17, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn, and all that. There was one moment in my life where I didn’t own a piece of male clothing, really. I would wear full make-up every day in school, eyelashes, leggings with Dr Martens and huge fur coats, for 2.5 years…

I don’t know what the title would be, but I feel just as much woman as I am man.

But wait —

For years, liberals have told us that gender is meaningless…  or even more to the point, that it’s a fabricated social construct.  Professors for years have taught unsuspecting students that there is no difference between men and women — a lesson that frankly doesn’t even pass the straight face test.

Guess who else doesn’t buy that there’s no difference between men and women?  Sam Smith.  After all, why would he even consider transitioning, if there was no difference?  Why even call it a “transition,” which infers moving from one thing to another?

In other words, Smith had to resort to a sexist stereotype of women.  After all, there’s more to being a woman than high heels, eyelashes, leggings, and fur coats — right, feminists?  That’s what you’ve been saying for decades.

And now, in 2019, Smith is at it again:

“When I started started studying gender as part of my English degree it hit me like a thunderbolt – I was non-binary.

“I’ve always existed between the two genders.

Two genders?  Who is he, Rush Limbaugh?  What a conservative idea!

Smith says that he first started realizing that he was “non-binary” after seeing he gained weight in the same way that women do.  Um….

The mainstreaming of mental illness continues, unabated.

The fact that leftists are completely embracing this sort of stereotyping is totally bizarre.  As Michael Van Der Galien wrote at PJ Media:

There is this strange concept prevalent in leftist circles nowadays that all those things that were once considered “prejudices” (“women have to wear and love high heels and make-up”) have suddenly become proof of being a woman (“people who wear and love high heels and make-up are per definition female”). Here I was thinking that leftists hated such “gender norms.”

Exactly.  I don’t care about this singer’s sexuality one bit.  But I am endlessly fascinated by the Left’s ability to hold completely contradictory views and not even realize it.
