'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.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
