Why Have Leftists Replaced Black Rights with Gay Rights and Women’s Rights with Trans Rights?

Why Have Leftists Replaced Black Rights with Gay Rights and Women’s Rights with Trans Rights? by Michael L. Brown for Ask Dr Brown

There was a day when equal rights for black Americans was the cause célèbre of the left. But for more than a decade now, gay rights have trumped black rights. Why? There was a day when equal rights for women was the cause célèbre of the left. But in recent years, trans rights have trumped women’s rights. Why has this happened? I believe I have the answer.

But first, let me demonstrate how dramatically things have shifted in our culture by mentioning the names Crystal Dixon, Julea Ward, and Angela McCaskill. What do they have in common?

They are all well-educated black females who lost their jobs (permanently or temporarily) or were kicked out of their university program because they differed with the gay activist agenda.

Crystal Dixon was formerly Associate Vice President of Human Resources at the University of Toledo. When Michael S. Miller, editor in chief of the Toledo Free Press, wrote an editorial in which he likened the “gays rights struggle” to “my black friends’ struggles and my wheelchair-bound friends’ struggles,” Dixon took exception to this and penned an op-ed piece for the newspaper.

For doing this, on her own time and in her own name without malice or hatred, Dixon was fired from her job in 2008.

Julea Ward, a pastor’s wife, was expelled from the counseling department at Eastern Michigan University on March 12, 2009 after refusing to renounce her biblically-based beliefs about homosexuality at a meeting that can best be described as a school tribunal.

Angela McCaskill was the first deaf black woman in the world to receive a doctorate degree (Ph.D.). That is rarified air.

But in 2012, McCaskill was suspended from her position as diversity officer at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., the nation’s premier school for the deaf. Why? It was discovered that she and her husband signed a petition calling for her home state of Maryland to put the referendum on same-sex “marriage” up for a vote. (For the record, she signed this petition while attending church.) That was her transgression.

This trend of has continued to do this day, and when it comes to the hierarchy of the left, gay trumps black.

As for trans rights trumping women’s rights, consider the treatment received by Germaine Greer, one of the world’s premier (not to mention pioneer) feminists.

For daring to say that a biological male can never become a true female, Greer has been labeled a TERF (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist), and attempts have been made to cancel her campus lectures. As an op-ed on the Huffington Postannounced, “‘Feminists’ Who Exclude Trans Women Aren’t Feminists At All.” Goodbye, Germaine Greer!
