Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lashed out at all men and women who believe in science and biology and adhere to these obvious realities, even on International Women’s Day. On 8 March, Trudeau aggressively tweeted his support for men appropriating female stereotypes, condemning anyone who disagrees with him as being hateful. His words are a unique contradiction: “When women and girls are empowered, whole families, communities and societies succeed. So today, as we celebrate #IWD2023 and celebrate the incredible women and girls in our lives, let’s continue to work to build a more equitable and equal future. And with the disturbing rise in anti-transgender hatred seen recently here in Canada and around the world, I want to be very clear about one more thing: trans women are women. We will always oppose this hatred, always and everywhere.”
Over the years, PM Trudeau has been photographed several times with a blackface, mocking stereotypes about black people. Now he has no qualms about supporting men who put on “womanface,” those who wear a costume, wigs, tights and make fun of women. It is funny to defend men who want to look like women in this way, because it is clear that the prefix “trans” attached to “women” shows a desire to be someone you are not. If “transwomen” were already women, there would be no need for adding “trans” or any other prefix. One would simply be a woman. And if one were to “simply be what one is,” he would simply be a man. “Trans rights” are not actually under attack in Canada, as they enjoy the full support of government and institutions and enjoy only privileges in every area of social and civic life.
A few months ago, Trudeau was invited to participate in the Canadian spin-off of RuPaul’s Drag Race, where he preached about diversity. Trudeau told the drag queens that it was “an incredible pleasure to participate in fighting the good fight on the right side” after the show’s host congratulated him for becoming the first Canadian leader to participate in a Pride parade and for being “an ally” in a clip shared on social media. “We can move beyond ‘tolerate’ and start to embrace, love, accept, learn from, and be challenged by–this is how you build a resilient society, this is what we are trying to do in Canada, and we still have a lot of work to do,” blathered the 50-year-old man incoherently while gesticulating wildly with his hands. One thing Trudeau could do right away was to study biology and respect and protect his country’s biological women.
