    Is a church a place of public accommodation and if so Ė are congregations required to follow anti-discrimination laws regarding gender and sexual orientation?

    The head of the ACLU's Georgia chapter resigned because of President Obama's transgender directive requiring public schools to allow students to use the bathroom of the gender they identify with. Maya Dillard Smith told The Kelly File she took a stand on the issue after witnessing three transgender young adults over six feet tall with deep voices enter a women's restroom, which frightened her elementary school age daughters. She said the ACLU didn't provide "the opportunity for robust discourse on the competing civil rights" of LGBT equality and religious freedom. Smith, a Democrat, said she is open-minded about the issue...

    The whole purpose behind the transgender issue is not to push for civil rights, but to destroy the basic ideas behind the traditional gender structure and the institution of family. In its place would be a system based on Marxist theory where everybody is completely equal without the societal assigned pressures of having to behave according to our natural biology. These ideas are Marxist in origin as Karl Marx viewed the nuclear family as a vehicle of class oppression. In a civilized society the most basic institution of self governance is the family structure. Marxists on the other hand, view...

    Almost all counterarguments against allowing transgender individuals into sex-segregated spaces focus on the high likelihood of what harm will be caused to girls and women. However, to my knowledge there have been very few if any well-developed cases regarding the ramifications of allowing female transgender individuals into male sex-segregated spaces and what could happen to boys and men. Furthermore, the vast majority of rebuttals to allowing transgenders into sex-segregated spaces have focused almost solely on private areas such as restrooms and locker-rooms without further emphasis on incidents of privately owned, male-only businesses that have been coerced into accepting transgender individuals....

    Let’s just get this out of the way right up front: I’m a Springsteen fan. Have been since I was a very young man and always will be. With that said, it’s worth noting that The Boss has delivered a smack in the face to his fans in North Carolina this week, cancelling on short notice a concert he was scheduled to play there because of his objections to the state’s new bathroom privacy law. He took to his Facebook page to break the news. As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this...

    In a pioneering move, the Cooper Union administration is taking steps to remove the designations across campus, following student action last year. Last fall, the oldest building here on the Cooper Union campus underwent a sudden renovation. A group of students, agitating for their transgender classmates, stripped the words ďmenĒ and ďwomenĒ off the doors of the Foundation Buildingís restrooms. The act expressed years of pent-up frustration that here in lower Manhattan, at one of the most liberal colleges in the country, students who failed to conform to gender norms nevertheless risked harassment whenever they went to the bathroom. But...

    As predictably as the arrival of the seasons, San Francisco decided to jump into the debate over North Carolina’s new privacy law less than 48 hours after it was signed. Rather than commenting on it or criticizing the message, the city elders decided to punish North Carolina by banning any official government travel to the state except in cases where it can’t be avoided. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said in a statement Friday he doesn’t want any city workers to travel to North Carolina unless necessary in wake of its legislation which blocks anti-discrimination for gay, lesbian and...

    I‚Äôve become jaded enough by this point in my life that political stories rarely shock me, but I must confess that this one caught me off guard. The South Dakota legislature recently passed a common sense bill which would ensure that students attending public schools could retain their privacy in gender separated bathrooms, locker rooms and showers. It was obviously designed to stop the expansion of the SJW movement to force the concept of ‚Äútransgender students‚ÄĚ on everyone else, allowing boys to use the girls‚Äô facilities. But on Tuesday, Republican Governor Dennis Daugaard vetoed the bill. (Time) South Dakota¬ís...

    South Dakota would be the first state in the U.S. to approve a law requiring transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond to their sex at birth if the governor signs a bill passed Tuesday by the state Senate. The Senate voted 20-15 to send the bill to Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard, who initially responded positively to the measure but said last week he'd need to study it more before making a decision. Advocates say the bill is meant to protect the privacy of students, but opponents say it discriminates against vulnerable adolescents. [...] The American Civil...
  • ‚ÄėMulticultural Toilets‚Äô For ‚ÄėGlobal Defecation‚Äô Seek To Stop Migrants Pooping On The Floor

    German bathroom manufacturers are developing ‚Äúmulticultural toilets‚ÄĚ to help ensure Middle Eastern migrants need not adapt to European sanitation norms. Multiple reports have emerged of recent arrivals finding themselves utterly ‚Äúmystified‚ÄĚ by Western loos. Some have resorted to doing their business on the floor or outdoors, others have used showers, and many migrants will have never seen toilet paper before. The issue caused some serious confusion last year, with one small German village being accused of racism after issuing leaflets politely asking migrants to use to the correct facilities.
  • National Mall Bathroom Fiasco

    Me and my family were touring the National Mall this Christmas. One of us had a bathroom emergency, but when we went to every public restroom, they were barred off from public use. We even tried to kick the Plexiglas window down near one's door to no avail, and the nearest usable restroom was more than a mile away, so we had to go on the ground. The park police told us they refuse to open them, but we saw then busy feeding the horses. They kept driving right by the bathroom.

    The whole "transgender" issue hasn't shown up much on the presidential radar, but it did with Ted Cruz recently.¬† In a radio interview, Cruz said: ... the Obama administration‚Äôs support for trans students amounts to ‚Äúlunacy!‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúLook, these guys are so nutty that the federal government is going after school districts, trying to force them to let boys shower with little girls,‚ÄĚ Cruz responded. ‚ÄúNow listen: I‚Äôm the father of two daughters, and the idea that the federal government is coming in saying that boys, with all the god-given equipment of boys, can be in the shower room with junior...
