If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times — being educated doesn’t make you intelligent. Apparently, if you’re an educated Democrat, said axiom really rings true.
A new survey by the Pew Research Center shows that a whopping 77 percent of Democrats with at least a bachelor’s degree “say a person’s gender can be different from the sex they were assigned at birth.”
Comparatively, only 60 percent of Dems with “some college” education believe gender can be different from the sex they were assigned at birth, while an even lower 57 percent believe the same that have received a high school diploma or less.
Fifty-seven percent is still an extremely high number to believe a falsehood.
Overall, 64 of Democrats believe that a person’s gender can be changed from the one they were born with. Conversely, only 19 percent of Republicans believe the same to be true.
Another interesting stat in the survey can be seen when observing a person’s age in relation to their belief on this topic.
According to the survey, the older you get, the less you believe that a person’s gender can change from the one they were assigned at birth. Fifty percent of the Millennial generation (18-36 years of age) believe a person’s gender can change. The number see a drop the further up the age chain you go unless you’re a baby boomer — of course.
The number drops to 41 percent for those in the Generation X demographic (41 percent). But, when you get to the Baby Boomers, the number rises to 43 precent. The last demographic, the Silent generation (72-89 years of age), drops the percentage down to 37 percent.
Did I miss a meeting? Was there a memo that I didn’t receive? I’ve got to say, the phrasing “sex they were assigned at birth” is complete and utter garbage. You’re not “assigned” anything. Whatever junk you have when you’re born determines your sex, not what anyone with two eyes assigns to you.
In total, an astonishing 44 percent of all people surveyed believe a person’s gender can differ from the one God “assigned” while the baby is still in the womb. A sad 54 percent believe a person’s gender is “determined at birth.”
It’s a sad commentary on our society when, in 2017, an astounding number of people believe that your gender can change while others believe the Earth is flat.
Biologically, you will always be the same sex you were at birth, no matter the augmentation to your persona.
