Dr. Ben Carson isn’t someone who bends his way of thinking to accommodate someone. He proved that in an interview with Katie Couric when she asked about gender identity. Like anyone with common sense, Dr. Carson didn’t need to go to medical school to know when someone is biologically a man or a woman.
Carson says it is absurd to claim we don’t know what a man or a woman is. “A man pretending to be a woman is the “height of absurdity,” he said. This has been defined since the beginning of time. If someone is confused about his gender, it doesn’t change his genetics or biology.
Carson said that tolerance goes both ways. People don’t get to redefine what has been known for thousands of years and then call others racists or sexist for not immediately subscribing to it.
Carson explained that a man cannot magically become a woman, much like a person cannot magically change their ethnicity.
“For thousands of years, mankind has known what a man is and what a woman is,” Carson told reporters at the RNC in Cleveland. “And now all of a sudden we don’t know anymore. Now, is that the height of absurdity? Because today you feel like a woman, even though everything about you genetically says that you’re a man or vice versa?
“Wouldn’t that be the same as if you woke up tomorrow morning after seeing a movie about Afghanistan or reading some books and said, ‘You know what? I’m Afghanistan.
I know I don’t look that way. My ancestors came from Sweden, or something, I don’t know. But I really am,” said the retired neurosurgeon, adding, “And if you say I’m not, (then) you’re racist.”
Of course, Carson’s remarks are correct. It is scientifically impossible for a man to become a woman, or a woman to become a man. Still, progressives will call him a bigot and, ironically, anti-science. Figure that one out.
