Here’s the column that got me fired from the Denver Post.
I’ve been a regular columnist for the Denver Post since 2016.
…Plain talk that doesn’t conform to the newspeak law of “use only the words mandated by the perpetually offended.” So, it is labeled as “mean spirited” and banned. If conservatives and libertarians are granted a voice in the mainstream media, they must use the language of their ideological opponents. That is, they are not allowed to have their own voice.
What seemed to be the last straw for my column was my insistence that there are only two sexes and my frustration that to be inclusive of the transgendered (even that word isn’t allowed) we must lose our right to free speech.
…But to force us to use inaccurate pronouns, to force us to teach our kids that there are more than two sexes, to call what is plainly a man in a dress, well, not a man in a dress violates our right of speech.
