4. “Transgenderism is a mental disorder, as gender identity disorder or gender dysphoria as specifically named by the DSM-4 or DSM-5, [respectively]. If they wish to go against the DSM-4 or DSM-5 they are free to do so. And If they wish to explain how it is not in fact a mental disorder for you to believe you are a member of the opposite biological sex, that this isn’t some form of body dysphoria, they can make an argument as to why that is.”

5. “I would refer to them by their pronouns. Why wouldn’t I? I mean there’s no point. But if I’m talking publicly about what a man or a woman is, I’m not going to give credence to an argument that has no biological or logical basis. It doesn’t make any sense.”

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Feminism

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Feminism

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Racism

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Racism

1. “There will be no conversation in which you call me a racist, and I explain why I’m not a racist. That’s a conversation for idiots.”

3. “The race bullies win by relying on racial guilt. But collective racial guilt can only separate Americans. We are individuals, not homogenous members of racial subsets. Only when we learn to cherish the words of Martin Luther King, judging people as individuals, will we truly have the guts to stand up to the race bullies. After all, to paraphrase a man who once stood for unification rather than division, we’re not black America or white America. We’re the United States of America. We’re brothers and sisters.”

4. “The vast majority of murdered whites are murdered by other whites. That’s why there’s no national outrage when a white person is killed by a black person: it’s not evidence of some underlying black violence problem directed against white people.”

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Leftists

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Leftists

1. “This is what makes leftists leftists: an unearned sense of moral superiority over you.”

2. “The leftist philosophy of violence is simple: It’s good when it’s being used for leftist causes. It’s bad when it’s being used for any other purpose.”

3. “People on the left are taught from childhood that they are better than conservatives – it makes them feel good to hate conservatives. And that hatred is justified because, after all, conservatives are bigots.”

4. “The left is expert at framing debates. They have buzzwords they use to direct the debate toward unwinnable positions for you. They are tolerant, diverse, fighters for social justice; if you oppose them, by contrast, you are intolerant, xenophobic, and in favor of injustice.”

5. “The left no longer makes arguments about policies’ effectiveness. Their only argument is character assassination.”

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Abortion & Children

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Abortion & Children

1. “On abortion, the left says it is for choice, but ignores that the baby has no choice.”

2. “When someone calls you a racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe because you happen to disagree with them about tax policy or same-sex marriage or abortion, that’s bullying. When someone slanders you because you happen to disagree with them about global warming or the government shutdown, that’s bullying. When someone labels you a bad human being because they disagree with you, they are bullying you. They are attacking your character without justification. That’s nasty. In fact, it makes them nasty.”

3. “Abortion is a real moral issue with real lives at stake, and no amount of leftist badgering could back conservative Americans off their attempts to protect the unborn.”

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Israel-Palestine

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Israel-Palestine 

1. “The Obama administration has consistently refused to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli territory, let alone as the capital of Israel.”

3. “The target audience are people in the middle who don’t know anything, and who are being fed a pack of lies by people who are on the other side. And so, you know, again, the goal of the anti-Israel side in this battle is never to officially defend Hamas. It’s to rip down Israel because you can’t defend Hamas. Hamas is indefensible.”

4. “They hate Israel because they hate the West.”

5. “There’s this matrix that’s now been applied internationally. The idea is the Palestinians are poor because the Palestinians are oppressed. And Israel says, well, hold up a second. We pulled out of the Gaza Strip, we gave you access to water. We gave you access to electricity for free. We allowed in billions of dollars in foreign aid, and you didn’t build anything. And the rest of the world is saying, what – are you blaming them for their own problems? And the answer that Israel is giving is, well, yes. Because it turns out that if you have control over, you know, the economics of the Gaza Strip and you use all that money to build terror tunnels, well, yeah, I mean, we are going to blame you for that… if you’re a loser, there’s a high chance you’re a loser because you are making stupid decisions and you need to fix your life.”

6. “The things that we’ve been seeing on our screens from Hamas are atrocities, obviously. But the media has said that these atrocities are really missing context. The context they are providing is a bunch of lies.”

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Men

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Men

1. “Men are destructive in the absence of responsibility.”

2. “Plenty of young men have hit women because they had no moral compass and did not believe in basic concepts of virtue — and plenty of young men lack such a moral compass and belief in virtue thanks to lack of male role models. Teaching respect for women begins with ensuring that solid male influences models fill the lives of young men — men who respect women, cherish them, treasure them and believe in protecting them. This is an unpopular stance, because it suggests that boys require men to raise them. Which they do.”

3. “Because man is a threat to man, human beings seek safety and satisfaction in authority.”

4. “A man may be judged by his standard of entertainment as easily as by the standard of his work.”

5. “Women cannot become men. Men who believe they are women are not real women.”

6. “As a society, we have robbed men of their protective missions. Men who seek to protect women and children are called anti-feminist, gender normative. Men have abandoned their responsibilities to the state. As for building things — well, there too, men have been told that to build is to act selfishly, without concern for the community. And young men have no male role models, since many of their fathers have abandoned them or abandoned true maleness in pursuit of vainglorious brutality.”

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Same-sex Marriage

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Same-sex Marriage

1. “Same-sex marriage is not the final nail in the coffin for traditional marriage. It is just another road sign toward the substitution of government for God.”

2. “The argument that gay marriage doesn’t affect straight marriages is a ridiculous red herring: Gay marriage affects society and law in dramatic ways. Religious groups will come under direct assault as federal and state governments move to strip them of their non-profit statuses if they refuse to perform gay marriages.”

3. “Professors are allowed to teach homosexuality, Marxism (a secular religion), and anti-Americanism, but mention God and you’re out of a job.”

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Life & Happiness

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Life & Happiness

1. “Happiness is the pursuit of purpose in our lives. If we have lived with moral purpose, even death becomes less painful.”

2. “The European style of living is seductive: fewer hours worked, more hours at the cafe, less concern over self-betterment. But that style of living does not produce a purposeful life.”

3. “Like the Bible, Aristotle didn’t define happiness as temporary joy. He saw happiness in a life well-lived.”

4. “Without God, there is no right and wrong … Anything goes. Life loses value, and with that loss of value comes a loss of societal strength.”

5. “I’ve never seen anyone’s life get better by complaining about reality, I’ve seen it get better by accepting reality as it is and then making personal decisions to make it better.”

Ben Shapiro Quotes on America

Ben Shapiro Quotes on America

1. “Love for each other. Care for each other. Sacrifice for each other. And that’s what I’m going to ask of all Americans.”

2. “In actuality, California could be a wonderful place to live. In fact, if you’re highly educated and ambitious, you can do quite well here while enjoying the sun and the fun. The only problem: California will then blame you for your success and recommend that all your cash be removed from you.”

3. “Freedom of speech and thought matters, especially when it is speech and thought with which we disagree. The moment the majority decides to destroy people for engaging in thought it dislikes, thought crime becomes a reality.”

4. “Liberals in Hollywood can’t stand when Americans resonate to conservatives on television.”

5. “Government cannot change the hearts of human beings—it cannot make them that which they are not.”

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Capitalism & Socialism

Ben Shapiro Quotes on Capitalism & Socialism

1. “Capitalism invariably boils down to barter between two willing parties, neither of whom uses force to work with the other.”

2. “Socialism states that you owe me something simply because I exist. Capitalism, by contrast, results in a sort of reality-forced altruism: I may not want to help you, I may dislike you, but if I don’t give you a product or service you want, I will starve. Voluntary exchange is more moral than forced redistribution.”

3. “Capitalism requires individual responsibility and accountability. People are seen as atomized units in a capitalist system – they are either useful, or they are not. They are not seen racially or ethnically or religiously. They consume and they produce, and those are their only relevant characteristics.”

4. “Socialism violates at least three of the Ten Commandments: It turns government into God, it legalizes thievery and it elevates covetousness. Discussions of income inequality, after all, aren’t about prosperity but about petty spite. Why should you care how much money I make, so long as you are happy?”

5. “Socialism has no moral justification whatsoever; poor people are not morally superior to rich people, nor are they owed anything by rich people simply because of their lack of success. Charity is not a socialist concept – it is a religious one, an acknowledgment of God’s sovereignty over property, a sovereignty the Left utterly rejects.”

6. “When people are desperate or wealthy, they turn to socialism; only when they have no other alternative do they embrace the free market. After all, lies about guaranteed security are far more seductive than lectures about personal responsibility.”
