Ok let me make sure I understand this:
Despite objective biological facts, the media and our culture demand that because a man by the name of Jenner insists and imagines himself to be woman, pays money for hormone treatment to increase female hormones into his body, and changes his physical appearance using makeup and clothing to portray himself as a woman, we are not required to accept it as fact. Furthermore our cultural elites insist that not doing so is a sign of closed minded bigotry.
If despite objective biological facts, a woman by the name of Dolezal insists and imagines herself to be black that’s different story:
Rachel Dolezal serves as chair of the independent commission, in addition to her work as an adjunct faculty member at Eastern Washington University and president of the NAACP local chapter. On her application to serve on the commission, she identified herself as African-American. But public records, including Dolezal’s own birth certificate, list her biological parents as Ruthanne and Lawrence Dolezal of Montana. The Dolezals told KXLY Thursday that Rachel is their biological daughter and that they are both white.
Hold on a second here, what do facts or a birth certificate have to do with this?
If a person physically alters themselves to remove male or female organs and has plastic surgery to create the appearance the other sex not only does the law allow them to be considered the opposite sex despite the biological & DNA evidence but they’re allowed in some cases to alter their birth certificates to reflect the sex they claim to because despite the objective evidence of biology gender is a “social construct” then why would not race be also a social construct? After all compared to the biological differences between men and woman the biological differences between various races are practically non-existent.
Furthermore most of us can not trace our ancestry back to the beginning of time race so who is to say that there is not a different racial ancestry in our past then what is physically apparent?
Given these facts It’s apparent that anyone who is unwilling to accept MS Dolezal transracial identity is properly identified as a bigot who is trapped in the evil western cultural racial identity paradigm.
Because if the NAACP and the left refuse to do so then they might have to admit that there is such a thing as objective fact and that admission would be too horrible for them to contemplate.
Update: Glenn beat me to it:
SHE’S TRANS-BLACK. DON’T SHAME HER. NAACP leader and civil rights activist outed as WHITE by her parents who say she’s been pretending to be black for years. She’s obviously transitioning, and we should support her choice.
Update 2: Kirk had the best advice against self delusion:
Update 3: Allahpundit:
“Trans” in this context is a term used to describe adoptions that cross racial lines, not to imply that she or her family had “transitioned” a la Caitlyn Jenner from one race to the other — although maybe now Dolezal has no choice but to make that argument. When you’ve committed a fraud this absurd and elaborate, involving fake dads and fake sons and almost certainly fake hate crimes, the only path back to a modicum of sympathy is claiming that your identification with African-Americans is so complete that your entire racial identity has shifted because of it.

I keep thinking of Pilate’s questions to Jesus: “What is truth?”
Update 4: The Anchoress absolutely nails it:
Mark it down, people. June 2015 is when the human animal declared “who the hell are God and Science to dare tell us what the truth is, anyway?” Faith in one’s feelings trumps both. Individual feelings are become a personal truth, and personal truth is absolute and unassailable reality.
“Only a Sith thinks in absolutes”, said Obi-Wan, and only mean people think in terms of Objective Truth. “I know what I know, and it’s the truth”; subjectivity is The New Absolute. The New Absolute is the Almighty Me, and what I AM.
Thou shalt have no other gods but ME
My goal for 2015 is Twenty Two grand which will give me a nominal living doing this.
That gets all the bills paid. (including my writers like Fausta) If I can get to Forty Thousand I can afford to travel outside of New England and/or hire me a blogger to help me get it done.
