America (Pronouns Was/Were)

Russian officials are openly mocking America’s embrace of transgenderism, taunting the United States to “keep going”.

The ridicule came after a photo of transgender Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine and non-binary Deputy Assistant Nuclear Energy Secretary Sam Brinton went viral last week.

The queer duo were pictured visiting the French ambassador’s home to celebrate Bastille Day. Brinton posted the picture on Instagram with the caption …

Week 4 On The Job: Champagne and Celebration with the French Ambassador in his residence for Bastille Day. (But also the amazing opportunity to connect with one of the only other transgender government officials, Admiral Levine — not gonna lie, it felt great to commiserate with a fellow trans person facing the hate)

Brinton’s Instagram has since been set to private, but not before the photo was widely circulated.


Russia‘s United Nations diplomat Dmirty Polyanskiy reposted the photo with the caption:

“Keep going that way, our dear American ex-partners! I don’t think we even need any long-term strategies to counter your malicious role in the world — you are doing the right thing yourselves! And let the whole world see WhoYouAre!”

Russian Foreign Affairs communications official Maria Zakharova also reposted the photo, adding …

“Answer the question honestly for yourself: Are these the values that you are ready to instill in your children? Or do we still fight for our own?”

Clearly, the Russians didn’t realise the correct response was to exclaim: “Stunning. Brave. Inspirational.”

Russians should be marvelling at how the US has overcome ableism by electing a demented president. “Stunning. Brave. Incontinent.”

But I digress.

Wrong Focus

It remains a mystery why President Biden chose Levine and Brinton to represent the US in France last week, rather than with him in Saudi Arabia.

Sam Brinton, the son of Baptist missionaries, describes himself as a gender-fluid LGBT+ activist. He is also a drag queen and a “pup” fetishist.

This is from a biography Brinton supplied to LGBTQ Religious Archives Network website:

“Sam has worn stilettos to Congress to advise legislators about nuclear policy.”

It’s telling that Brinton is at pains to point out, not that he advised Congress on nuclear policy, but that he wore high heels while doing it.

And that goes to the key objection many people have about Brinton and Levine representing America internationally. They seem more intent on representing transgenderism than America.

And if they are representing America, what impression are they giving our allies and, more importantly, our foes?

Sam Brinton wrote of himself:

“Brinton shows young persons that they can be who they are and gives them courage. Once, while they were walking around Disney World in 6 inch stilettos with a boyfriend, a young gay boy saw Sam with the boyfriend and started crying. He told his mother, ‘It’s true, Mom. we can be our own princess here.’”

The Russians got a different message from Brinton’s 6-inch stilettos.

Instead of being inspired by Brinton to believe they too can be princesses, the Russians have decided that they are battling a nation of princesses.

“America. Pronouns was/were” was one of the more succinct replies to the Russian official’s mocking tweets.

It’s one thing to insist Levine and Brinton have the right to live as they please
(which of course they do), but it’s another thing to believe it wise to make them the face of America abroad when the world teeters on the edge of World War Three.

Biden projects princesses when he needs to be projecting power.

    James, you could not make this stuff up! For me the kicker is, what values are we modelling to your children. I think there is a simple divide going on, those who want to be of this world and those who are not. Thank you for this most distasteful article.
