Podcast: Gender, Sex, Feminists, and the Drive to Abolish Male and Female

Author Ashley McGuire joins the Federalist Radio Hour to explain the cultural push from the left to put gender over sex, and politics over biology.


Ashley McGuire is the author of the new book “Sex Scandal: The Drive to Abolish Male and Female.” McGuire explores some the areas in which culture attempts to deny any differences between sexes and how “gender neutrality” is harming children.

McGuire’s book covers a range of sex and biology issues including bathroom bills, women in the military, children’s toys, and women’s competitive sports. “I think we have second wave feminists to blame for getting us to this point because they were the ones who pushed this idea in the first place,” she said. “They pushed the argument that our maleness and our femaleness is something that’s socialized, that these are arbitrary categories…and we need to eradicate the biological differences.”

From “50 Shades of Grey” to John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Hollywood knows no limit to double standards. “Suddenly when you have Beyonce or other female stars literally glamorizing violence against women… we are left without any tools to say this is disempowering women when we’re told that whatever choice a women makes, it’s our job to support it,” she said.
