The fundamental flaw in gender theory

Apr 16, 2021 by

THE Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) is the antipodean equivalent of the BBC, and recently on its prime current affairs show Q&A one of the Scott Morrison government’s high-profile politicians, Trent Zimmerman, sounded more like a cultural-Left radical than a Liberal Party politician committed to a conservative agenda.

When discussing gender and religion Zimmerman argued: ‘Any person should be able to decide what future they want for their own life and what they do with their body is part of that.’ This was in response to Martyn Iles from the Australian Christian Lobby, who defended rugby star Israel Folau’s condemnation of homosexuality as a sin.

According to Zimmerman every individual has the right to decide whether he or she is male, female or lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, etc, regardless of what medical science tells us or a person’s obligations and responsibilities to others and society in general.

Zimmerman thus unwittingly reveals a fundamental weakness in neo-Marxist-inspired gender theory. Denying one’s God-given sex by arguing that gender is a social construct is a relatively recent phenomenon. The origins of radical gender theory which argues boys can be girls and girls can be boys, despite the fact that human biology proves otherwise, can be traced to Germany’s Frankfurt School established in the early 1920s.

The Marxist academics associated with the Frankfurt School argued that the most effective way to overthrow capitalism was to engage in the culture wars by taking the ‘long march through the institutions’.  One of these academics was Wilhelm Reich, whose seminal book The Sexual Revolution heralded a revolutionary critique of traditional sexuality and institutions such as marriage.
