Few have done more to expose the woke left than investigative journalist Chris Rufo, whose work has zeroed in on some of the biggest issues of the day, including the teaching of critical race theory in schools.
In his latest piece for City Journal, Rufo took readers on a deep dive into the world of trans activism, highlighting how activists mask radical ideology in feel-good slogans.
He began by lamenting the fact that activism has slowly been seeping into America's institutions, pointing out how the the Biden administration and its numerous agencies have pushed gender-reassignment surgeries, and various gender identities.
This has been achieved, he explained, via the use of slogans and euphemisms such as "gender diversity," "LGBTQ inclusion," "love is love," "protect trans kids," and "comprehensive sexual education."
By using such feel-good mantras, activists are able to repackage their radical ideology as nothing more than caring for others.
As Rufo pointed out, however, looking beyond the catchy slogans reveals the true nature of trans activism.
To illustrate his point, Rufo highlighted a "Decolonizing Gender" conference hosted by a number of trans organizations in Washington State, all of whom receive taxpayer support in one form or another.
Panelists included people who identified as everything from "gender fluid," to "gaseous or plasma-like," and had pronouns ranging from "goddess," to none at all.
As Rufo reported, they "expressed in a mixture of New Age and intersectional language—the more obscure and oppressed, the greater the status within the community."
Led by trans activist Malcolm Shanks, panelists took turns calling out European settlers for imposing the gender binary on the people of the Americas, and called for a decolonizing of gender, wherein anyone could identify as, well, anything.
"For gender, myself," said indigenous male to female trans prostitute Ganesha Gold Buffalo, "it's been a constant struggle under colonialism, not to accept and affirm myself, but to find acceptance and affirmation and understanding outside of myself."
"I one-hundred percent want to still be able to look in the mirror and see every part of myself as a woman," Gold Buffalo continued, "see every part of myself as a two-spirit trans woman, a beautiful being: my moustache, all of my facial hair, my untrimmed brows, my fat ass, my belly, my big d***, everything."
As Rufo explained, the goal of decolonizing gender was not isolated; it came with calls to destroy capitalism, "white supremacy," patriarchy, imperialism, and land ownership.
"Though this kind of ideology might appear to be the work of a fringe minority," Rufo warns, "it is becoming increasingly mainstream in activist and educational institutions."
