At one time “tolerance” meant accepting that some people did things we didn’t like or whatever. We shrugged, we prayed for them, we moved on. We didn’t’ kill them or even shame them; we simply tolerated their choices or biology or whatever. That’s not enough, though.
Tolerance as simple acceptance of something we cannot change has become some form of “justice.” The intolerant left DEMANDS that we not only tolerate but that we actively march in parades and take up their cause.
Case in point: The U.S. Army has stated the female soldiers must shower with “trans” soldiers who have male genitalia.
The Blaze reports:
The United States Army is now training active-duty officers to accept transgender individuals into the bathrooms (and showers) of that individual’s preferred gender, according to an excerpt from the official training manual.
. . . . “Following her transition from male to female (which did not include sex reassignment surgery) and gender marker change in DEERS [the Army’s personnel database], a transgender soldier begins using female barracks, bathroom and shower facilities,” the vignette says.
“Because she did not undergo a surgical change, the Soldier still has male genitalia,” it clarifies.
The training not only instructs officers to accept transgender officers in the facilities, it also states that they should not expect to have privacy either.
. . . . According to the document, any female officers who may be uncomfortable with a transgender soldier displaying their genitals in the barracks or shower will simply have to adjust and get used to it, because it explicitly states that transgender officers do not need to modify their behaviors for others in the facility.
“[T]ransgender soldiers are not required or expected to modify or adjust their behavior based on the fact that they do not ‘match’ other soldiers,” it says.
The definition of “tolerance” takes a beating yet again.
