    You probably think your opinions matter. You probably think you’re an individual with unique experiences, thoughts and ambitions. Well, I hate to break it to you, but according to current leftist orthodoxy, you’re wrong. You see, your opinion only matters relative to your identity—and where that identity ranks on the hierarchy of intersectionality. If you’re now thinking, “What the hell are you talking about?” you haven’t spent much time on a modern college campus. Intersectionality is a form of identity politics in which the value of your opinion depends on how many victim groups you belong to. At the bottom...
  • Is an “Ungendered Fashion Utopia” Possible?

    Western fashion’s traditionally strict gender delineations have been gathering criticism for some time. It’s come up often in our geek-specific spheres specifically in regard to children’s fashion and fandom-based merchandise, but as a recent article from Mic explores, mainstream fashion has its own struggles with ideas of de-gendering clothing. A few years ago, Zara released a gender-neutral line of clothing. In theory, it was a great step forward for inclusivity of nonbinary and nonconforming people as well as anyone else looking to get away from established gender norms. In reality, though, the line was essentially just male-coded clothing in drab,...
  • Extreme body modification: Amputees risk death by cutting off own limbs (Sex "reassignment" too)

    Forget extreme plastic surgery, tattoos and piercings - a minority are taking body modification to the next level - by voluntarily cutting off their own limbs. A body modifier has exclusively revealed how his "extra" limbs feel alien, and has resorted to the drastic measure of self-mutilation - because he actually want to be disabled. Dr. Michael First, a professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, has led investigations into this bizarre and extremely rare psychiatric condition which he is calling body integrity identity disorder (BIID). Also known as amputee identity disorder, it gives people a fierce desire to rid themselves...
  • Trump exposes the G-7 summit as a total fraud

    President Trump didn't play along with the usual narrative at the G-7 summit, and the liberal media predictably characterized him as the villain: Even before then, Mr. Trump had left himself the outlier in the annual session. By departing before the end, he skipped sessions about climate change, oceans and clean energy — ceding not only America’s leadership on those topics, but also its very seat at the table. Lost in this breathless "transcription" of events is the question of whether America should lead on so-called "issues" such as climate change, oceans, and supposedly "clean" energy.

    It must be an election year. (Oh, who am I kidding? It’s always an election year these days.) Having apparently solved all of the other problems plaguing the Big Apple, Mayor Bill de Blasio took to the stump this weekend to announce that there would be a change to birth certificates issued by New York City. From now on, new parents won’t be bothered by any confusing questions about gender at the hospital after their new bundle of joy comes into the world. If their new baby is born with either a penis or a vagina but they’re still...

    And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7)In all of the rest of Creation, the LORD God spoke and it was. Creation by Fiat, The Lord said…”Let there be Trees, fish, beasts, domestic animals, etc.” . But when He made man, The Most High got down in the clay, and formed with his own hands the marvelous body of the first man, Adam. Then he did something completely intimate, something very close to ‘mouth to mouth’ , He breathed...

    The Education Department is investigating whether Yale University discriminates against men by offering specific programs and scholarships for women. Inside Higher Ed reported Monday that the department launched the probe last month after a student who is not affiliated with the university filed a Title IX complaint. Kursat Christoff Pekgoz, a doctoral student at the University of Southern California, claims that women are no longer a minority in higher education and therefore Yale’s programs that specifically benefit women violate federal gender discrimination law. Federal data show that women make up 49 percent of undergraduates at Yale. Nationally, more than 56...

    Brittney Coelho arrived at her Harker, Tex. high school one morning, dressed in an outfit deemed appropriate by her school’s dress code. But during the day, an assistant principal pulled her aside to point out an issue with her wardrobe — the fact that Coelho wasn’t wearing a bra. “It is not a requirement in the dress code at my school for me to wear a bra,” the student tweeted. “Stop blaming girls’s outfits for boys not being raised right to respect women.” She then posted a photo of herself in the shirt she wore to school, without a bra,...

After The College Fix quoted an email to students from Liping Liu, an administrator told The Fix that the business and management professor’s gender-based approach was “unacceptable” and that no grades have been artificially raised.

    The City University of New York (CUNY)-Guttman recently published a new guide for students that adds “zim,” “ver,” and “emself” to the list of acceptable “gender-inclusive” pronouns that can be used.The “Gender Identity and Pronouns” guide tells students that the “dichotomy of ‘he and she’ in English does not leave room for other gender identities,” and to fix this, the guide offers a list of alternatives students may use instead.The guide claims that possible alternatives include “zie/zim/zieself,” “vie/ver/verself,” as well as the irregular set of pronouns, “zie, hir, hirself.” To refer to a student using these pronouns, you might...

    ONTARIO, May 8, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A biological male who identifies as neither male nor female has received Ontario’s first birth certificate with an “X” designation in place of his biological sex. Joshua M. Ferguson is a Vancouver-based filmmaker who says he considers himself “non-binary” because he is biologically male but grew up with more feminine features. Last year he applied to Service Ontario for a “non-binary” birth certificate, filed a human rights complaint when he was rejected, and has finally gotten his wish, CTV News reports. The move follows new guidelines Ontario adopted last year allowing certificates to display...

    In boxing, a fighter’s weight is measured and reported to the audience. Size matters in a fight. I’m a 5’3” female and I weigh in at a whopping 104 lbs. (Tiny person, mighty spirit.) But presumably I wouldn’t do well fending off a physical attack. So when liberals started talking about female empowerment and fighting rapists, I got excited. Turns out, we had some disconnect on what empowerment really means. My internal conversation with liberals went something like this: Libs: “We need to empower women. We need to fight against rape and bad men. Gender equality!”Me: “Alright! Let’s teach women self defense,...

    New York Mayor Bill De Blasio has announced that prisoners in the city will be housed according to the gender with which they identify instead of biological sex. "In New York City, we believe transgender rights are human rights. And we'll fight to protect those rights in city jails as well," he tweeted Monday. "It's the city's responsibility to protect the rights and safety of all New Yorkers, and that means protecting transgender individuals in city jails as well," the mayor said in a statement, according to AM NY.

    Washington Post ^ | April 18, 2018 | Simon Denyer and Annie Gowen
    cultural preferences, government decree and modern medical technology in the world’s two largest countries has created a gender imbalance on a continental scale. Men outnumber women by 70 million in China and India. The consequences of having too many men, now coming of age, are far-reaching: Beyond an epidemic of loneliness, the imbalance distorts labor markets, drives up savings rates in China and drives down consumption, artificially inflates certain property values, and parallels increases in violent crime, trafficking or prostitution in a growing number of locations.

    If you want to empower women, stop talking about the mythical gender pay gap. ... It’s important to understand how the left is twisting numbers for political purposes, but it’s also vital to rebut the destructive message they’re sending. The subtext of Equal Pay Day is that women can’t. No matter how hard women work, no matter how smart they are, no matter their choices, women can’t earn as much as men. Try your hardest, sister, but your gender will keep you down.

    When someone here has a name like Morgana, metmom, or MNdude, it is easy to guess the gender. However, I have to admit I probably do not know the gender of over half of you now when I think about it, even though I read posts from you for many years. If you have a gender-neutral name like reformedliberal, could you let us know which gender you really are? This way I will never accidentally call you ma'am if you are male!
  • Canada Tells Government Employees to Stop Saying ‘Mother’ and ‘Father’

    Canada’s government says front-line employees may no longer use the terms “mother” and “father” in official correspondence. Instead, they must use gender-neutral terms like “parent” when speaking to the public. This directive was published Wednesday by Radio Canada, the French-language arm of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Other forbidden terms include “sir,” “madam,” “Mr.,” “Mrs.” and “Miss.” Instead, Service Canada’s front-line staff must call people by their full names until they have asked them how they wish to be addressed. An “In-Person Quality Monitoring Program” will oversee employees and ensure they comply with the new directive. “This avoids portraying a perceived...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Whether Royal, Charlie or Salem, Skyler, Justice or Oakley, unisex names for babies are on the rise among parents more willing than ever to embrace the possibility of gender fluidity in their children and attempt to head off sexism on their behalf. “We’re definitely seeing more conversation today around the distinction of a truly gender-neutral name,” said Linda Murray, global editor-in-chief of BabyCenter.com. “This generation is truly interested in gender neutral names.” The Social Security Administration puts out a top 10 list of popular baby names every year based on its registrations, but it also keeps...

    A student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania was kicked out of a religious studies course when he stood up in class to argue that, biologically, there are only two genders. As reported by Campus Reform, Religious Studies major Lake Ingle was in a class February 28 that included a video lecture by “transgender woman” Paula Stone Williams, a man who used to be a prominent pastor and church planter before deciding that he felt more comfortable as a woman.
