ANDREW KLAVAN (HOST): Some of gender is, in fact, a performance. What that crazy person was saying has a certain truth to it. Some of it is a performance that you do. You fulfill your responsibilities as a man or as a woman, even though you don't feel that's who you actually are inside. You charge over the top of the trench, even though you're scared to death, right? You do the thing that a man or a woman has to do, even though you don't feel like it. It's a bit of a performance, but you're not performing just anything. You are performing something that's true.
It's like if you're an actor and you're playing Hamlet, you're playing something that's true. If you're playing Ant-Man, you're playing something that's made up. It's just silly, right? But if you're playing Hamlet, you're playing something that's deep and true. And so this activist is playing something that's false, and that's what makes him look so ridiculous in his girly outfit. That's what makes Rachel Levine look so absurd, pretending to be a woman because they're playing something that is false, right?
Now, this has become this lie -- and when you deal with a lie like this, you're dealing with danger and evil. And that's one of the things I'm going to talk about in the culture section, is why certain lies and certain premises lead to evil, and that's the most important thing about finding the truth is that the truth will set you free, and the truth will help you not to become evil.
But one of the things is this has led to atrocities. What are happening, the things that are happening in this country to young people are atrocities. I've said this before, I will say it again. If the evil Nazi doctor Josef Mengele -- look him up, one of the most evil men in all of history -- if he had come to Adolf Hitler, another one of the most evil men in all of history, if Mengele had come to Hitler and said, I want to describe to you my new idea called gender-affirming care, Hitler would have said, you've got to be -- who do you think I am, Hitler?
You know, I mean, this is an atrocity to chemically castrate children, to cut off the healthy body parts of children.
