Moderator Diego Sanchez hosted a live panel on Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention Convention, inviting several guests to discuss the topic of Raising up Transgendered Youth and Young Adults, including one panelist which identifies as a “Transgender Non-Binary/Gender-transcendent Mermaid Queen-King” who is also an ordained minister. (Not in the SBC, but give it 50 years the way it is going.)
During the panel, Sanchez first asked Jenny Vu Mai, the aforementioned mermaid, what the newly licensed minister learned in Divinity School and what she would have missed if she hadn’t attended. She replied:
Something that I would have missed if I chose a different path is that some of the holiest people, and the people who most resemble what God looks like to me are black trans folk and in particular black trans women…
And honestly like…we know that the most vulnerable unprotected people in America are black trans women. And honestly this party isn’t doing enough to protect them. It’s not doing enough to like really be upfront in the ways which it has failed black trans women. And so if you aren’t doing anything to tangibly support black trans women right now, you need to get your s*** together and do the f****** work, or move the f*** out of the way – out of the way so that people who are doing the work can give our roses to our sisters while they’re still here.
When the DNC moderator asked her what sort of questions persons of color, trans, and non-binary youth are asking in this day and age, Mai was adamant that the very existence of the police and prisons were bewildering to teens, who thought they ought to be abolished.
Why can’t folks imagine a world without the cops? Why can’t folks imagine a world without prisons? Why can’t people expand their imaginations to include community care, to include an abolitionist future?
I’m talking about like for real-for real abolition, not just the watered-down DNC version of abolition. We’re talking about abolishing the police, we’re talking about abolishing ICE, we’re talking about abolishing prisons.
A recently licensed minister in the Progressive National Baptist Church, Jenny Vu Mai is about as absurdly caricaturish as they come when it comes to far-left Wokefolk. When asked by another interviewer how her identity as transgendered and non-binary affected her faith and practice, Mai was…confusing.
I identify as somewhat Christian but also somewhat agnostic. I perceive the binary between Christian or not Christian like I perceive gender to be a false binary. There are so many nuances of what it means to be Christian, what it means to be a non-binary Christian….
In that sense, she is a perfect representative of the Democratic Party, and it is not surprising in the least that the DNC featured her as a guest.
