Walter E. Williams: Reality May Be Optional

Many people want to change reality when it isn’t “convenient”. Unfortunately reality can’t be changed, but that doesn’t stop their attempt. In this article titled, “Reality May Be Optional”, Walter E Williams starts by saying, “One of the wonders of modern times is that reality is often seen as a social construct and therefore optional. Thus, if one finds a particular reality offensive or inconvenient, he just “changes” it.

He then gives examples. Here is one.

“Say that one is born a male or a female but believes that nature made an error. Some believe that nature’s “error” can be corrected by calling oneself another sex. Possibly a medical procedure on one’s genitalia can correct nature’s error. However, Mother Nature is ruthless. Sex determination is strictly chromosomal. Females are XX, and males are XY. There is no medical procedure that can change that. Once male or female, always a male or female.”
