In a tweet on Saturday Former Vice President Joe Biden openly supported the transgender agenda, unequivocally declaring, “Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time.”

The transgender movement remains a point of cultural contention. Among the hotly debated issues is whether biological men who identify as women should be allowed to use women’s bathrooms and compete in women’s sports.

But Biden is not the only candidate publishing eyebrow-raising comments this week. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has pledged that as president, a minimum of half her cabinet will consist of women and non-binary people.

She promises to “Build a Cabinet and senior leadership team that reflects the full diversity of America, including having at least 50% of Cabinet positions filled by women and non binary people.” She also commits to “Ensure representation of LGBTQ+ people across all levels of government, including in leadership roles.”

Sen. Warren includes female gender pronouns on the Twitter bios for her accounts. See here and here.

On the issue of abortion consider this sharp juxtaposition: President Trump made history Friday as the first president to speak at the March for Life, but Sen. Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) tweeted their support for abortion the very same day. Sen. Sanders declared that “Abortion is health care” while Sen. Warren asserted that “Abortion rights are human rights” and that “Abortion rights are economic rights.”

According to the RCP poll average former Vice President Joe Biden currently leads the race for the Democratic nomination nationally, while Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren come in second and third, respectively.
