Historically, the Alaska Democratic Party has tried to ensure that party delegates for the Democratic National Convention are evenly divided between males and females.

Due to a concern about delegate applicants who don’t personally identify as either male or female, state party leaders are now faced with a much more difficult challenge when attempting to equitably divide limited seats between men and women.

The 2024 delegate selection plan states that the number of male delegates and the number female delegates shall not vary by more than one.

If there are only nine members for a committee, for example, and all identify as either male or female, there can only be five members of one sex and four of the other.

With the introduction of “non-binary” or transgender delegates, the process is much more convoluted.

For starters, the party will accept – without question – the personal gender identification a delegate applicant claims. If a male identifies as female, for example, he would be included among the total number of female delegates.

When applicants identify as “non-binary,” they are counted as neither male nor female, and therefore do not count for either sex’s total number of delegates. If, for example, a nine-member committee had two people who identified as male and two who identified as female, while the other five claimed “non-binary” status, this would satisfy the requirement that the committee be evenly divided between males and females. In this case two apiece, with five others who are “non-binary.”

In theory, a committee could now be comprised entirely of biological males, whether actual men, men who identify as women or men who do not identify with either sex.

    Democratic Parties are heading for its own collapse. Republican Parties are a bungled up of a mess unclearly existing when its members can’t even be unified. The Democratic Party was better unified. This LGBT agenda of its young millennial democrats will be to its disorder and disunity. This more likely all to the business leading us all closer to a one world government where there are no political parties of differences, opinions, or experienced except one leader and one group.

    It feels like we’re in a comedy. It makes no sense.

    Off Topic: Natural News put out an article about where we are being taken in this agenda to “reduce emissions” and it is not good for humanity. I want to know at what point are Alaskans going to admit that this really is happening and that we need to do something to combat this? I posted a link in an earlier article’s comment section where the AK DOT wants public input on how we can reduce our carbon. Why is everyone in Alaska asleep? Wake up! They are going to freeze and starve us to death people! WAKE UP!

    The West Virginia NPR Troll Anziulewicz, either paid or self-appointed, always has a word. Perhaps he can enlighten us as to why he follows The Watchman so studiously. Chuck, when we listen to your Leftist Podcasts on “West Virginia Morning”, where can we troll you?

      Do DNA tests on each potential delegate and use the SCIENCE identified in their DNA for gender. They can identify as who theybwant, however DNA doesn’t lie.

    Democrats no longer allow real women into their club. They’ve allowed men to take over women’s sports, bathrooms, breastfeeding, (chestfeeding) ads for women’s clothing, etc. It’s madness.
