    An Italian toilet icon in southern Italy has upset the LGBT community. A hotel establishment in Cavallino near the southern Italian city of Lecce has created a storm with its unusual toilet icons, three to be precise; a woman, a man, and a “gay” man. “The word had been covered up but somebody decided to uncover it and make it visible again,” the owner told Il Quotidiano. The owner said the extra icon would be painted over. It had been there since the previous administration, according to the current owner, who stressed that there was no intention to discriminate, according...

    The Leftist Democrat Communist Party refers to themselves as, "Progressives," or, "The Progressive Party." The Shakespearean style headline fits this classic story of Dem-wit dumbness. A faithful reader, Wellnessdoc William Doell, who sends many overlooked articles to this column, dispatched one early this morning covering the newest political issue titled—we kid you not—Pee Privilege. Get your picket signs ready. Here is the headline: THE NOTORIOUS NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY NOW HAS SIGNS OUTSIDE OF ON-CAMPUS RESTROOMS THAT ASK STUDENTS TO CONSIDER WHETHER THEY HAVE “PEE PRIVILEGE.”

    Target Corp's Chief Executive Brian Cornell took a sharp cut in compensation after the company failed to meet financial goals in a year marred by declines in sales and share price. Cornell's cash-and-stock compensation fell by nearly a third to $11.3 million, according to a document filed with regulators two months after the company reported results that sent its stock tumbling to 2-1/2-year lows. In contrast, bigger rival Wal-Mart Stores Inc gave CEO Doug McMillon a 13 percent pay hike, following strong sales performance at the world's largest retailer. CEOs of department store operators Macy's Inc and Kohl's Corp also...
  • The Target boycott cost more than anyone expected — and the CEO was blindsided

    Target triggered a nationwide boycott last year with a single blog post — and it turns out the message was as big of a shock to the company's CEO as it was to some shoppers. The blog post, published in April 2016, publicized a policy that said transgender customers were welcome to use the bathroom or fitting room that matched their gender identity. "Everyone deserves to feel like they belong," the post said. "And you'll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target." Target CEO Brian Cornell never approved the post and found out about it only after it was...

    A young mother from Los Angeles, who considers herself to be “progressive,” experienced a day of reckoning with one of those liberal ideas when a man who was clearly a man entered a women’s restroom at Disneyland and stood there watching the women who never said a word out of fear being politically incorrect.The Illinois Family Institute published a blog from liberal California mom Kristen Quintrall who admitted that she was afraid to write about the experience lest she be called “another homophobic mom lashing out at Disney” who would then have to “deal with the wrath of the...

    The Supreme Court on Monday sent back to a lower court a case on the legality of federal policy on bathroom access for transgender people. The high court vacated and remanded Gloucester County School Board v. G.G. to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals after the Justice Department and Department of Education issued new guidance last month removing the Obama-era rules.

    President Trump's Executive Order rescinding President Obama's Executive Order commanding federally funded institutions to permit individuals to use the bathrooms of the sex they imagine themselves to be sparked outrage from the gender-confused and their advocates. Illinois Democratic gubernatorial aspirant J.B. Pritzker used Trump's action to solidify his credentials to the deranged base of the Party by advocating that "everyone should use the other gender's bathroom as a protest against Trump's tyranny." Pritzker's ploy was criticized by Illinois State Rep. Will Guzzardi (D-Chicago) as "missing the point of the Obama edict. Knowingly using the bathroom of the 'other gender' contradicts...

    There is no federal law that requires any educational institution to refrain from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation. There are only federal laws that require institutions to refrain from discriminating on the basis of sex. Like it or not, that is a fact. The Obama administration decided that it would be a good thing if schools that receive federal funding accommodated transgendered students by permitting them to use bathrooms and locker-rooms that aligned with their own subjective sexual orientation. Having made that decision, there were two ways the Obama administration could have proceeded to achieve that goal. One...

    "You're asking us why we're following the law . . ." How much absurdity have we signed on for when there’s not just one question about bathroom use at a White House press briefing, but the bathroom questions go on and on and on . . . even though they’re basically all the same question and they keep getting the same answer? Sound familiar? Google “Trump presser Russia.”

    Twelve state legislatures are considering bills that would require transgender people to use bathroom and locker room facilities based on their “biological sex” or birth gender, according to the National Conference of States Legislatures. The tally provides an insight into how states might proceed now that President Trump has rescinded an Obama administration order that required schools across the country to allow transgender students to use whatever bathroom or locker room facilities they choose. Matt Sharp, legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, said the repeal will inspire a flurry of legislative activity at the local level.

    Caitlyn Jenner is speaking out against President Donald Trump’s decision to revoke federal guidelines protecting transgender students in public schools. The trans E! reality star, 67, who backed Trump in the election, published a series of videos and posts on social media on Thursday, February 23, slamming the former Apprentice host for backtracking on the promises he made. “Well @realDonaldTrump, from one Republican to another, this is a disaster. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me,” Jenner tweeted. In an Instagram video, the former Olympic athlete, who famously announced she was transitioning from Bruce to Caitlyn...

    The Trump administration has dropped the federal government’s challenge to a nationwide injunction issued last year that blocked the fulfillment of Obama administration guidelines stating that transgender students’ access to bathrooms and other gender-segregated school facilities was protected under existing federal civil rights law. The injunction was issued in August by Judge Reed O’Connor of the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Texas as part of a lawsuit filed by more than a dozen states over the Obama administration’s position that Title IX, the federal law that bans sex discrimination in schools, protects transgender students. Under that interpretation,...

    BRIGHTON, N.Y. -- The "Bathroom Bill" situation in North Carolina prompted a Rochester area politician to call out a local company about doing business in North Carolina. Brighton Town Supervisor Bill Moehle tweeted about Wegmans' expansion plans into North Carolina and why the company should wait until North Carolina repeals HB2 and restores legal structure for its new governor. Wegmans replied, saying they have no plans to cancel their stores at this time.

    A recent nationwide survey revealed that “60 percent of transgender Americans have avoided using public restrooms for fear of confrontation, saying they have been harassed and assaulted.” The “landmark” survey cites data based on the responses of 27,715 individuals, or an estimated 2 percent of the adult transgender population (which comprises only 0.6 percent of the entire U.S. population). Reuters refers to transgender people as a “severely understudied group whose experiences and challenges from medicine to law to economics and family relations are poorly understood.” And the National Center for Transgender Equality, the group that conducted the survey, hopes the...

    A new state law that prohibits discrimination against transgender people in public restrooms is “punishing” the protected religious speech of churches and pastors, a conservative Christian organization claims in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday. Alliance Defending Freedom, based in Scottsdale, Arizona, said it sued on behalf of four Massachusetts churches to protect their right to operate their facilities “in a manner that doesn’t violate their core religious beliefs.” The lawsuit names Democratic state Attorney General Maura Healey and members of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination as defendants. The law, which was signed by Republican Gov. Charlie Baker in July and...

    Gov. Jerry Brown waded further into the national debate over transgender rights Thursday as he signed a bill requiring that all single-stall toilets in California be designated as gender neutral. The measure requires that businesses and governments post non-gender-specific signs on single-occupant restrooms by March 1, 2017. Democratic Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco said his legislation would establish the nation’s most inclusive restroom-access law and “chart a new course of equality for the nation.” “This simple concept is oddly cutting-edge when compared with the discrimination being enacted in other states,” Ting said earlier, while urging the Democratic governor to...

    As you may remember, the Friday before Labor Day, U-46 CEO Tony Sanders made the decision to allow a gender-confused middle school student to use an opposite-sex locker room. And Sanders also decided to conceal this information from district parents. Only one school board member, Jeanette Ward, had the courage and integrity to notify parents via her Facebook page of this information. As a result, she has been on the receiving end of vicious, hateful, and false personal attacks. Contrary to what Leftists in the district are saying, Mrs. Ward revealed no personal identifying information about the student. She did...

But Target has not changed this dangerous policy The boycott of Target stores led by those outraged that the retail chain encourages men who “identify” as women to use women’s restrooms is working—but victory is not yet complete. Business Insider reports: The boycott started in April after Target announced that it would welcome transgender customers to use any bathroom or fitting room that matched their gender identity. The announcement triggered an immediate backlash. Critics said the policy opened the door for sexual predators to...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — A federal judge ruled Friday that two students and an employee must be allowed to use restrooms matching their gender identity at University of North Carolina campuses, and he said they have a strong chance of proving the state's bathroom-access measure violates federal law. U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder temporarily blocked the University of North Carolina from making the three plaintiffs follow the restroom provision of the so-called HB2 law as the larger case makes its way to trial in November. His final decision on the law won't come until after trial. Passed in March, HB2 requires...

    The University of Missouri (MU) is renaming its “Unisex” restrooms on campus in response to complaints that the current label isn’t inclusive. Henceforth, restrooms intended for use by both men and women will simply be labeled “toilet.” The change is apparently meant to accommodate student complaints that the “unisex” label, intended to encompass everybody, is actually exclusionary and hurtful. “Unisex is just such an uncomfortable and outdated word,” MU student Sterling Waldman told the Columbia Missourian. The word, Waldman said, excludes people who identify as neither male nor female. Waldman serves as the social justice chair in MU’s student senate,...
