    My oldest granddaughter is 15, and thanks to North Carolinas HB2, if a 15-year-old boy in her school identified as a girl, he would not be allowed to play on her sports team or share her locker room. I for one am glad that North Carolina, my home state since 2003, has taken a stand for common sense, for safety, and for privacy, yet the NBA is punishing the state for protecting its residents, announcing that it will pull next years All Star game from Charlotte. What hypocrisy; what bigotry; what intolerance. The NBA is now the National Bullying Association.Let...

    Dave Matthews Band will donate the proceeds from their upcoming concert in Charlotte to five organizations fighting North Carolinas recently enacted transgender bathroom law. Unlike other artists who have cancelled concerts in the state in opposition to the law, Dave Matthews Band will go ahead with its scheduled May 27 show at the PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte. In a brief statement on their website, the band announced that a portion of proceeds from the performance would go to five organizations working to fight the law: the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Lambda Legal, ACLU of North Carolina, Equality NC...

    But poverty-stricken seamstresses making some of the clothes in the MAS Holdings factory in Sri Lanka earn just 4.30 a day. It would cost them more than a months wages to buy a pair of Beyonces 100 leggings. The workers, mostly young women from poor rural villages, can only afford to live in boarding houses and work more than 60 hours a week to make ends meet. Most are reluctant to speak out for fear of losing their jobs. Campaigners insist the women are being exploited and treated like slaves. " We have to share the shower block with the...

    resident Obamas done lost his mind. Hes just flushed the civil rights of men and women, boys and girls, to pee in peace and shower without having naked, sexually confused or sexually predatory members of the opposite sex ogling them, or intentionally exposing their genitalia for a cheap thrill. Reports Fox News: The Obama administration has sent a letter to every public school district in the country telling them to allow transgender students [meaning students pretending to be the opposite sex] to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their chosen gender identity, as opposed to their birth certificate. ...

    Hi, Im Derek Hunter and Im a straight, white male. Im 6 feet 5 inches tall, have brown hair and two different color eyes. At least, thats how I actually am. But thanks to an insane group of pandering, division-loving progressive leftists, I am now free to claim to be, or identify in the current socially acceptable parlance, as anything I want. Its good to know the president has enough free time to worry about such things as peoples right to use whichever bathroom they want.

    Burr calls NC GOP governor 'off base' for seeking congressional action North Carolina's senior senator said his state's Gov. Pat McCrory is "off base" in calling for congressional intervention to resolve a state dispute over restroom access for transgender people. "I've never seen Congress get involved in judicial matters and this is turned over to the court system now," Republican Sen. Richard M. Burr said Tuesday. "So, I think the governor's off base."... Burr said he would rather see the issue remain in the courts. "That's where they chose to put it, he said. I would have preferred that they...

    CNN ^ | 05/09/2016 | By Jennifer Agiesta, CNN Polling Director
    Americans broadly oppose laws that would require transgender people to use facilities that correspond with their gender at birth rather than their gender identity, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll, and three-quarters favor laws guaranteeing equal protection for transgender individuals. Overall, 57% say they oppose laws requiring transgender individuals to use facilities that do not match their gender identity, 38% support such laws. Strong opposition (39%) outweighs strong support for these laws (25%). There's a partisan gap on the question, with Democrats and independents more apt to oppose them than Republicans. But Republicans aren't broadly in favor of them either....

    It is beyond dispute that the left is winning the current culture war and doing so by a landslide. In response to this reality Ive heard many conservatives say we just need to start making better arguments for our positions. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are not losing because our arguments are inferior. We are losing because of tactics rather than substance. Put simply, the left has learned how to do two things: 1) Control the language in the national debate 2) Get their ideas disseminated and accepted without any evidentiary basis.There is one Christian apologist who...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Thursday said front-runner Donald Trump had defied common sense and embraced political correctness by coming out against North Carolinas law barring people from using public restrooms of the opposite sex. He said he thought men should be able to go into the girls bathroom if they want, scoffed Mr. Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas. Let me ask you, have we going stark raving mad? This is political correctness. This is nonsense.

    When Bruce Springsteen cancelled his concert in North Carolina this month because of politics, I thought what a jerk. He wanted to send a message, and he wasnt concerned that his cancellation affected far more people than the issue he claimed to be protesting. It was about a new law in the state which restricted mens bathrooms to males, and womens bathrooms to females. My god, the nerve of those Carolinians! The Boss, or some PR flake of his, explained: To my mind, its an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the...

    There is a Coopers hawk living in a tree in my back yard near the Intracoastal Waterway in Wilmington, North Carolina. He is extremely aggressive when defending his territory. In fact, just a few months ago he was annoyed by the presence of some Blue Jays nesting in a tree within his territory. So he grabbed one by the wing, flew him down to the ground, pinned him on his back, and slowly ripped his heart out of his chest right in front of the other Blue Jays all just to send a message to them. That Coopers hawk...

    Video at link. Houston Mayor Annise Parker wasn’t exactly gracious in defeat, accusing those who opposed the city’s transgender-rights ordinance of “deliberate lies” and predicting the city’s economy would suffer as a result of the measure’s repeal. In remarks shortly after Tuesday’s balloting, Ms. Parker blamed the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance’s lopsided loss on “a very small but determined group of right-wing ideologues and the religionist right” for waging “a campaign of fear-mongering and deliberate lies.” The ordinance, named Proposition 1 on the city ballot, lost by 62 to 38 percent despite the strong support of national gay-rights organizations, who...

    The Texas Supreme Court gave Friday the Houston city council 30 days either to repeal a civil-rights ordinance allowing opposite-sex bathroom use or place it before the voters on the November ballot. The 12-page decision says that the council ran afoul of the city charter when it refused to act after the city secretary certified a year ago the signatures submitted by a pastor-led coalition, which had moved to force a vote on the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO). Houston Mayor Annise Parker came under fire last year after the city moved to subpoena sermons and other documents from five...

    A 1999 U.S. Supreme Court decision could play a role in the outcome of a lawsuit over Houston Mayor Annise Parker's denial of a petition to revoke the city's new Equal Rights Ordinance. Around 55,000 signatures were gathered to add to the November ballot a question on whether to repeal the ERO. Since "gender identity" is included in the list of categories that cannot be discriminated against for public accommodations, critics have dubbed the law the "bathroom bill," because males who identify as female would be allowed to use women's bathrooms and females who identify as male would be allowed...

    PHOENIX - A bill in front of the city council would change the non-discrimination law in Phoenix, protecting Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual and Transgender people. Essentially, the proposal prohibits discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations, such as restaurants and hotels. But, opponents have dubbed it, the "Bathroom Bill", because, if approved, a man could follow a woman into the bathroom by claiming to be transgender. Supporters say they despise the nickname, claiming it's a fear-mongering lie created by critics of the bill. They can swing this, that's why they do this because they know if they can get people to...

    A county ethics commission in Maryland has determined that if you make negative statements about transgenderism, your word is not reliable. The stunning conclusion, now under appeal at a state ethics panel, was made by the Montgomery County Ethics Commission and signed by member Nina Weisbroth in a four-year-old dispute over an effort to hold a referendum on the countys adoption of whats become known as the coed showers bill. The law provides discrimination protections for transgenders, and critics say it opens up virtually all of the county from shower rooms to restrooms to other private areas to...

    BOSTON, November 17, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Massachusetts legislature has passed a bill that elevates cross-dressing or transgendered individuals to a protected class, and grants universal access to sex-segregated areas such as bathrooms based on personal “gender identity or expression.” The measure, known as the “Transgender Equal Rights Bill” (H. 502 in the House and S. 764 in the Senate) passed the upper chamber on Wednesday in a voice vote. It’s unclear when the bill will receive final approval votes and be signed into law by Democrat Gov. Deval Patrick, a strong gay rights supporter. The bill inserts “gender identity”...

    The state Senate followed the House this morning in passing a transgender civil rights bill. Unlike the House, where the bill drew vocal opposition, the Senate passed the bill by voice vote with only one speaker, the sponsor. Governor Deval Patrick said Tuesday that he would sign it. Sure, Patrick told reporters. I think we have hate crimes on the books today. They, in the case of transgender people, dont go far enough. The bill would protect transgender people in housing, credit, and the workplace, and would include transgender people under hate crimes protections. Opponents have called the bill an...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Susan Collins, along with her colleagues Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Mark Kirk (R-IL), and Tom Harkin (D-IA), have introduced the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) to finally prohibit job discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Senator Collins has long been a strong supporter of this legislation. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2011 would prohibit employers, employment agencies, labor organizations and joint labor-management committees from firing, refusing to hire, or discriminating against those employed or seeking employment, on the basis of their perceived or actual sexual orientation or gender identity. Such protections are already in...

    In a move blasted by opponents as an end run around lawmakers, Gov. Deval Patrick yesterday quietly signed a controversial transgender rights executive order, called the bathroom bill by critics, making it illegal to discriminate against state workers on the basis of gender identity. This is going to set off a firestorm, and its certainly something the governor should have given us a heads up on, said House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones (R-North Reading). Patrick signed the changes with no announcement. The measure was a major issue during Patricks tough re-election battle last year. The executive order, unlike a...
