Chart-topping singer Demi Lovato took to social media this week to wage war against “gender reveal” parties, attack a basic understanding of biology, and declare that biological sex and genitalia are unrelated.
In a nine-part post on Instagram, Lovato reposted a complaint by Alok Vaid-Menon, an LGBT activist, that parties announcing the gender of preborn babies are “transphobic” because “there are boys with vaginas and girls with penises.”
“It’s both insincere and incorrect to pretend that gender reveal parties are not transphobic,” Vaid-Menon stated in the post shared by Lovato. “You can’t have your proverbial pink-blue binary cake and eat it, too. This is not about political correctness; it’s just … correct. We condemn gender reveals not because of our identity, but because of reality.”
The post went on, claiming that defending the “gender binary”promotes transphobia by teaching people to view “non-trans people” as more “natural” and “organic.”
Gender reveal parties, Vaid-Menon continued, are “based on the illusion that genitals [equal] gender and that there are only two options, ‘boy or girl.’”
“This definition erases the fact that there are boys with vaginas and girls with penises and that there are people who are neither boys nor girls,” Vaid-Menon wrote, claiming that sex based on genitalia is “inconsistent with science.”
“[G]ender reveals require not just the invalidation of transness, but the impossibility of transness,” Vaid-Menon continued.
“The assumption is that the baby is cis. Cisness is positioned as the default and everyone else is understood as derivative of it,” Vaid-Menon said, using the popular term “cis,” meaning someone whose gender identity matches their birth sex.
“The idea goes: while we might ‘identify’ as trans now, we were ‘originally’ ‘born’ cis and we later ‘became’ trans,” Vaid-Menon explained. “When in truth, everyone is just born. And we all become after the fact.”
In the caption of her Instagram post, Lovato thanked Vaid-Menon for “sharing your knowledge and educating us.”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it yet again—watch who your children are following on social media! The entertainment industry is bought-and-paid-for by the radical left. Do you want your children learning their values from them?
