A gnomic utterance

One of the current liberal projects is the replacement of an old legal and cultural model, in which the paradigmatic public “person” is male, with a new legal and cultural model in which the paradigmatic public person is unisex. Both of these models are damaging because the underlying vision of human nature is false.

This is a gnomic utterance, rather than a real post, because I’m unsure what law and culture based on a sexed, sexually-differentiated, public person would look like. But I do think the attempt to strip any sense of sexual difference from laws and culture is unresponsive to human nature and human needs, even though it’s obviously a reaction against an also-unresponsive and damaging patriarchal culture. It’s the New Soviet Man, for individualist Americans.
