'X' marks the spot: NYC is considering allowing a gender-neutral option on birth certificates

It's amazing to watch progressive politicians enact more and more progressive policies as if these policies are the default wishes of every human. And then to watch progressive cities and states self-destruct as a result of these policies (Exhibit A being California).

A former Obama adviser, Ben Rhodes, writes that after Trump's election night victory, Obama asked his aides, “What if we were wrong? Sometimes I wonder whether I was 10 or 20 years too early."

RELATED: There is no truth anymore

What Obama meant was, his administration's progressivism was just too awesome for America to handle. In his thinking, America couldn't yet appreciate what he brought to the table, so they rebelled and voted in Donald Trump. It's never because the progressive policies are garbage, it's because the people, mainly conservatives, are just too dumb to know what's good for them.

Obama and his fellow progressives across the land just don't get it.

Progressives continue to sprint toward the fringe Left, thumbing their nose at traditional values, common sense, and yes, even science. This week's example is New York City, where City Council Speaker Corey Johnson is introducing a proposal to allow adults to choose the new gender category of “X" on their birth certificates.

Parents in New York City already have the option of declaring the sex of their baby to be either “undetermined" or “unknown." Funny, that we don't even do this with our pets. Somehow, we're able to determine, from birth, whether Fido is male or female (and with a name like Fido, here's hoping it's male). Yet, city and state governments are now endorsing the lie that you can't trust what your anatomy says, you must listen to your heart to know your true gender.

Councilman Corey Johnson said: “This is about making it easier for people to be who they truly are and letting them know that New York City understands them and has their backs."

How exactly does allowing people to change their sex on a sheet of paper make New York City fairer?

Mayor de Blasio adds that this policy will, “make our City fairer." It must be nice when you're a progressive to say things like that and not have to back it up. How exactly does allowing people to change their sex on a sheet of paper make New York City fairer?

Marking “X" on a document used to be a sign of illiteracy. Now, “X" apparently represents gender illiteracy too.

UPDATE: Here's how the conversation went on radio. Watch the video below.

NYC considers adding ‘X’ gender category to birth certificates

A proposal would allow people born in New York City who do not identify as either male or female to choose a third category for their birth certificates.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
