Nothing screams over-the-top political correctness like praising an artist based on their gender identity rather than the merit of their work.
In the most recent example of this taking place, a transgender poet by the name of Jos Charles is receiving high praise for rearranging the alphabet in his latest collection of poems.
Charles apparently chose to rearrange the alphabet in his poetry collection in order to “survive its ferocity against [his] body.” The result of this rearrangement leaves us with dazzling lines of poetry such as “gendre is not the tran organe / gendre is yes a hemorage” and “a tran lik all metall is a series of sirface in folde / wee call manie of thees foldes identitie”
If you don’t agree with the Pulitzer Prize committee that such brilliant wordsmithing is deserving of the highest award in literature, then you are probably a transphobic bigot. Clearly, the creativity and genius of Charles’s writing is the reason that he is earning praise, and it has nothing to do with the fact that the Pulitzer Prize committee is trying to push a specific agenda. After all, if a cisgender, straight white male had mixed up the alphabet and penned a collection of poems that could have been written by a five-year-old we’re sure he would have received the same attention and accolades.
