Britain Gets Sane

Britain’s National Health Service is aligning itself with reality by acknowledging that sex is a biological fact:

The NHS is to declare that sex is a matter of biology in a landmark shift against gender ideology.

Changes to the health service’s written constitution proposed by ministers will for the first time ban trans women from women-only wards, and give women the right to request a female doctor for intimate care.

Campaigners for women’s rights welcomed the significant shift, which comes after years of wrangling and follows accusations that the health service had been captured by “gender ideology”.

One of the Left’s great PR coups was selling the idea that there is something called “gender” that is distinct from, and different from, sex. There isn’t. That is just another example of liberals’ conviction that by mandating changes in language, they alter reality.

I credit novelist J.K. Rowling, who has campaigned fearlessly for women’s rights by opposing “trans” insanity in Britain. I suspect she had a lot to do with the NHS’s turnabout.
