America's Diplomats Going Trans?

The lights are burning late at the State Department these days. North Korea is shooting missiles into the Sea of Japan, Communist China is threatening Taiwan, and President Biden recently told a group of donors we could be heading toward nuclear Armageddon with Russia over Ukraine.

Surely at a time like this everyone at the State Department is devoting their time and energy to securing the peace.

But alas, some State Department bureaucrats are spending their time stoking the flames of the "culture war" instead of stopping real war. State has announced its commitment to "gender dysphoria and gender transition care" for the department's workers overseas. This is part of the agency's "Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility Strategic Plan for 2022 to 2026." State will "increase support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI+) employees and family members." The plan includes increasing the number of "gender-neutral restrooms and locker rooms" in American facilities, presumably embassies overseas.

The great majority of nations around the world have not bought into the lie that there are dozens of genders or that biological men can become "real" women. The State Department initiative, far from contributing to the mission of preserving peace through diplomacy, is likely instead to offend most nations and fuel the anti-America propaganda efforts of America's enemies.

The State Department should stay out of promoting radical transgender ideology and get back to its central mandate: Using diplomacy to prevent war.
