      Harvard: Students can change gender daily, saying otherwise is

      Fr Mark Hodges, LifeSiteNews


    CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts, April 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews
    <http://www.lifesitenews.com/>) -- One of the world’s premier
    academic institutions
    has published a student guide that states one's gender can "change
    from day to day" and merely saying that’s not true "is a form of …

    Homosexual activists in the Harvard University office of "LGBTQ
    Student Life" passed out a school-sponsored guide that urges
    students to "fight transphobia <http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=9079>."

    Among other claims presented as facts, the guide decrees that "there
    are more than two sexes.”

    "Gender is fluid and changing,” the guide instructs.

    Using carefully worded transgender phraseology, the guide refers to
    biological gender as one's "sex assigned at birth."

    "How are you supposed to write a law that protects against gender or
    sex discrimination if a person’s ‘gender identity’ can change
    daily?" Chris Pandolfo at the Conservative Review
    asks. "James Madison might’ve said something important about
    'mutable' or constantly changing government and 'incoherent' laws once."

    Furthermore, the Harvard guide admonishes students that "fixed
    binaries" (in other words, referring to the two sexes of male and
    female) and "biological essentialism" (in other words, considering a
    boy to be a boy and a girl to be a girl) "threaten(s) the lives of
    trans people."

    Calling a male by a male pronoun is considered gender assault.
    "Misgendering someone" is considered life-threatening. The biblical
    worldview is characterized as "transphobic misinformation."

    "Transphobic misinformation is a form of systemic violence," the
    guide claims.

    Critics say the most dangerous claim of the Harvard encyclical is
    that opposing views are "a form of systemic violence." In other
    "traditional understandings of the roles of men and women and the
    distinctions between male and female are 'violence.'”

    "If you follow this line of thinking, then when, for example, Jesus
    says in Matthew 19, 'Have you not read that he who created them from
    the beginning made them male and female’…  — that’s violence,"
    Pandolfo pointed out.

    Campus Reform <http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=9079> reports that
    several Harvard students expressed outrage about the misuse of
    tuition money for the politically correct student guide, but "all
    declined to comment on the record due to concerns about potential
    repercussions from the school."

    Pandolfo opined, "One wonders if Harvard’s administration has paused
    to consider whether they are providing a 'Safe Space' for students
    who think that men are men and women are women."

    "This is the sad state of affairs at colleges and universities,"
    Pandolfo concludes.  "Traditional values are called violent. Mob
    violence to silence free speech is called justice."
