There is little denying that some on the progressive left have fully embraced identity politics and view an individual’s identity — gender, race, religion — as far more important than other characteristics.
They have even gone so far as to create a sort of complex and constantly fluctuating hierarchy of “intersectionality” that ranks all of the various identities based on where they stand in terms of historical oppression and victimhood, among other such subjective nonsense.
As such, certain identities can always take precedence over others, and one of the preeminent identities favored by the left at this point in time is that of transgender individuals.
With that in mind, consider the following mind-bending thought experiment proposed by conservative Hollywood star Kevin Sorbo — perhaps best known for his starring role in the TV show “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.”
His thought experiment forced the left to consider the full implications of their own obsession with intersectional identity and either accept their own premise or reveal their hypocrisy.
In a tweet Sunday, Sorbo laid out a scenario which, if the left stayed true to their own new rules, would demand that they fully support President Donald Trump.
That’s because Trump would in effect claim a trifecta — if not more — of top-ranked identities that would render his other characteristics meaningless.
“President Trump should declare that he is identifying as a woman. The left will have to celebrate ‘Donna Trump’ as the first woman President,” Sorbo wrote.
“He is married to Melania, so he will also be the first gay president and the first lesbian president. All should be happy!” he added.
