[UPDATE] Biden Chooses Trans Person For Secretary Of Education?
An internet rumor that transgender activist, Charlotte Clymer, was nominated as Secretary of Education is false. Despite Clymer’s misleading Twitter post that “the rumor is true,” the Biden team made no confirmations. Those familiar with “Charlotte” never thought it was factual and anyone fooled had never heard of the activist in the first place.
It appears Clymer’s intent in stating the rumor was true was to be mocking and derisive towards the current Sec. of Education, Betsy DeVos, and question her qualifications to serve. Criticizing successful conservative women is often the M.O. of these unsuccessful and unknown liberal “activists”.
An irony here is that this LGBTQ activist is part of the Human Rights Campaign and promotes women’s equality. Though often donning female garb, makeup, and fancy handbags, Charlotte is actually a six feet tall male former Army Corporal, born Charles Clymer. To quote another liberal activist, former President Obama, “you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig”. And he added, “You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called ‘change.’ It’s still gonna stink after 8 years.”
Well, the stink here is that Clymer is a victim of major child abuse by his mother and it’s probably not a coincidence that he appears slightly unhinged. Child abuse hurts children and can often alter or reshape their future, even causing them to harm themselves and others with destructive criticisms, derision, sarcasm, exclusion, and nonacceptance. Clymer’s revealed backstory is of being raised in a home where his mother abused him in ways that cannot even be retold. He certainly deserves our sympathy and empathy for all he suffered but spewing hatred online is no way to earn it. His gender dysphoria and decision to identify as a woman, transwoman, or queer (as he labels himself online), will never change the fact that he remains biologically male.
The horrors of sexual, mental, and physical abuse cannot simply be swept under the rug. Reasonable people do not turn those rugs over and simply choose to display to the world the indistinct underside. Angry, disillusioned, and wounded individuals often blame, criticize, lash out, and are intolerant of others. We all need to rise above such temptations and be educated with truths that do not change over time and not be swayed by rumors and myths.
