The reality of biological sex is that there are only two genders: Male and female. Yet in newly-inaugurated President Joe Biden’s America, you may freely identity as whatever you desire to be–a man, a woman, or something that doesn’t even exist.
In accordance with this anti-scientific line of thinking, one of the first tasks of the Biden administration on Wednesday was to publish a redesigned White House contact form that allows people to specify their so-called “gender pronouns” and prefixes.
While the scientifically-accurate gender pronouns are and have always been “she/her” and “he/him,” Americans writing to the White House may now choose an alternative such as “they/them” or “other.”
Likewise, Americans writing to the White House may now identify themselves with the non-existent prefix, Mx., which apparently denotes no gender.

This may seem like no big deal, but it is in fact highly relevant because it signifies how the Biden administration intends to govern for the next four years.
In short, the administration intends to cater relentlessly to the LGBT community, likely even when catering to them means stomping on the rights of other communities.
Writing for Spiked magazine in 2018, sociology professor Frank Furedi of the University of Kent explained how even by then — and with a Republican in the White House — already the rights of others were being targeted for elimination by the LGBT lobby.
“Directives issued in 2015 by New York City’s Commission on Human Rights state that employers and landlords who intentionally use the wrong pronouns with their non-binary employees or tenants can face fines of up to $250,000,” he noted.
“Last year, the governor of California endorsed a bill that threatens to reprimand health professionals who ‘willfully and repeatedly’ decline to use a patient’s preferred pronouns.”
At least this has been happening only at the state level. Over in Canada, it’s already become a national matter:

“In places of work and in institutions of higher education, people face strong pressure and informal sanctions if they refuse to embrace a gender-neutral vocabulary. And it is increasingly common for management teams to provide employees with lists of words it is okay and not okay for them to use at their workplace,” Furedi added.
In 2018, a Virginia school teacher was fired for simply choosing not to use pronouns at all.
“The West Point School Board voted unanimously 5-0 to fire Peter Vlaming who teaches French at the school, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch,” The Daily Caller reported at the time.
“Vlaming, 47, was charged with discrimination after failing to use male pronouns to address a biologically-female student. Vlaming did not intentionally misgender the student, but avoided using any pronouns to address or talk about the student in order to accord with his Christian faith,” the Times-Dispatch reported.
That alone was enough to get him terminated.
With Biden now in office, chances are high that this sort of unbridled persecution of non-believers of LGBT ideology will only expand.
For instance, the administration is expected to promote the “right” of transgender students to participate in sports alongside students of the opposite sex — something that would be detrimental to and harm the rights of biological girls.
“Transgender athletes are getting an ally in the White House next week as they seek to participate as their identified gender in high school and college sports. … Attorneys on both sides say they expect President-elect Joe Biden’s Department of Education will switch sides in two key legal battles — one in Connecticut, the other in Idaho — that could go a long way in determining whether transgender athletes are treated by the sex on their birth certificates or by how they identify,” the Associated Press notes.
The Trump administration came after Connecticut last year after it began allowing boys who purport to be “transgender girls” to compete alongside biological girls. Conversely, with the Trump administration’s backing, last year Idaho banned “transgender girls” from competing alongside biological girls via the Fairness Act.
Commenting on the situation in Idaho last summer, then-Attorney General Bill Barr made it clear that the administration viewed the alleged “right” of “transgender girls” to compete against biological girls as an affront to women’s rights.
“Allowing biological males to compete in all-female sports is fundamentally unfair to female athletes. Under the Constitution, the Equal Protection Clause allows Idaho to recognize the physiological differences between the biological sexes in athletics. Because of these differences, the Fairness Act’s limiting of certain athletic teams to biological females provides equal protection,” he said.

Unfortunately, Biden does not share this zeal for women’s rights.
To transgender and gender-nonconforming people across America and around the world: from the moment I am sworn in as president, know that my administration will see you, listen to you, and fight for not only your safety but also the dignity and justice you have been denied.

And judging by the changes made to the White House’s website, it appears he also doesn’t share the Trump administration’s zeal for science.
