As we move toward the First Turning, we will continue to see a push toward recognizing once again that there are men (XY) and women (XX) and that society functions best when based upon this truth. If you look at the mainstream press, you might believe that this can’t possibly happen because there is a relentless push from every corner to counter basic biology. If you are simple enough to believe that there are men and women, you might think you are alone in believing this.
That isn’t the case. Consider these two recent stories.
Rasmussen Poll on Men and Women
Rasmussen recently did a poll about genders. It’s worth your time to click over and read the results that Newsmax outlined in detail.
Nearly 3 in 4 American adults believe there only are two genders, a new Rasmussen Reports survey found.
The Rasmussen poll found that 63% strongly agreed when asked, “Do you agree or disagree with this statement: There are two genders, male and female?” Another 18% disagreed.
Although majorities in every political category agreed that there are only two genders, Democrats (47%) were less likely than Republicans (82%) or the unaffiliated (60%) to say they strongly agreed, Rasmussen found.
Americans with incomes of $200,000 a year or more were most likely to disagree with the statement that there are only two genders.
I suspect that the numbers would be even higher if people knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that no one would know how they answered. Fear keeps many people from being honest at this point in time. Would you truthfully answer a pollster about such a question right now? A lot of people in the non-political “go along to get along” middle will be hesitant to be honest. If they hesitate to be honest, then you can assume the reason why is the fear of going against the current approved cultural zeitgeist narrative and somehow being found out.
J.K. Rowling in U.K. Guardian Poll
In the UK, a recent poll in The Guardian was shut down. Why? Apparently because J.K. Rowling was winning as the “Person of the Year” and that isn’t allowed. (The J.K. Rowling situation is also part of the Rasmussen poll above.)
If you aren’t familiar with why J.K. Rowling has been under attack, this tweet with a nod to Orwell’s 1984 will give you a glimpse.
War is Peace.
Freedom is Slavery.

— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) December 12, 2021
An online poll conducted by the staunchly left Guardian newspaper seeking nominations for “Person of the Year” has been turned off, sparking speculation it was shut down when author J.K. Rowling took the lead.
The poll was launched on December 15 and posed a simple question: “Who would be your 2021 person of the year, and why?” It can be found here.
As of Wednesday it was no longer live, launching conjecture from a number of sources that the fact author J.K. Rowling was such a dominating choice the outlet had no option left other than to stop accepting nominations.
It still exists but comes with the caveat This form has been deactivated and is closed to any further submissions.

The bottom line? There is a shift happening.
Like many things, it will come slowly and then all at once.
