The tenets of our liberal culture are getting even more ridiculous

The doctrines of our liberal culture have only become more absurd over the years, even as it's clear that only a fraction of the country actually believes them.

You can point to any one of a series of examples. Take the case of Twitter suspending the account of Republican Rep. Jim Banks, who correctly stated that health official Rachel Levine "was born and lived as a man for 54 years." Banks criticized the idea of calling Levine the "first female four-star officer to serve in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps'" because Levine's sex is male.
It is absurd enough to embrace the idea that there are no biological differences between men and women, especially when applied to women's sports. But a Democratic Oklahoma state representative took it a step further, criticizing Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt for stating that there is "no such thing as non-binary sex."
But Stitt, like Banks, is correct. There is no such thing as "non-binary sex," just as it is true that Levine is not the first female four-star officer. Biology still exists. Science is real. It is not hateful conduct, as Twitter and that Oklahoma Democrat claim, to acknowledge that.
Not content with just warping biology to fit leftist dogma, liberal institutions have taken to butchering multiple languages. "Latinx" has now replaced "Latino" as a "gender-neutral" alternative. It is used by 5% of Latinos and 99% of liberal politicians and institutions. "Filipino" has likewise been replaced by the atrocity "Filipinx," at least occasionally.

Meanwhile, former Sacramento Kings broadcaster Grant Napear is suing his former radio station for wrongful termination. Napear was fired last year during the height of the Black Lives Matter movement for responding to former Kings center DeMarcus Cousins by saying that "All lives matter…Every single one." The radio station immediately fired him and claimed that his comments about all lives mattering did not reflect its views or values. Seriously.
Each of these things sounds ridiculous to most people — certainly to all sane people. And yet this is what our dominant liberal culture is now pushing, as corporations obediently bow to made-up biology, edited foreign languages, and the idea that caring about equality is something you should distance yourself from. This cultural march is not going to stop on its own, or with the pushback of invested conservative activists. It will stop only when everyday people make it clear that they reject it.
