    The answer to the title question, at least in Kentucky, appears to be yes… at least for now. The Governor of Kentucky has signed a bill into law that prohibits the performance of abortions if the mother requests the procedure based on the sex or race of the child, or because of a disability. The law has already been challenged, and to say that the details of it are legally problematic is something of an understatement. Kentucky governor Matt Bevin on Tuesday signed a bill that bans abortions chosen on the basis of an unborn child’s sex, race, or...

    My first thought after hearing of this was, “I bet AOC and her ‘Squad’ in the House would welcome a law like this.”My second thought was, “Maybe AOC’s right that right-wingers spend too much thinking about her.”We should be thinking about Trump in this case, not her. You want looser libel laws to make it easier for him to sue the “fake news media”? Okay, but remember that the left will avail itself of those laws too. Call a male-to-female transgendered person a “he” on Twitter and who knows how much you might owe. Caroline Farrow said Surrey Police...

    Yes, there are actually parents who are dumbfounded and confused when their five-year-old children dont take to wearing fake penises, or tucking their real ones. A watchdog group called 4thWaveNow is raising awareness online about the ever-accelerating medical and media fascination with the phenomenon of transgender children.' This week, the group released screenshots from a private Facebook group called Parents of Transgender Children, which expose multiple conversations surrounding the practices of packing and tucking for supposedly transgender children as young as five years old. Some conversations involve parents expressing confusion at their childs lack of interest in prosthetic penises. My...

    MENS AND WOMENS categories still occupy the navigation menu on the website for 10-year-old retailer Totokaelo. Yet shoppers have increasingly crossed these virtual gender lines, said Fanny Damiette, vice president of brand and marketing for its parent company, Richmond, Va.-based NSTO. We have data that shows that sometimes the girls will go in the mens section and the men will go in the womens section. The shop leans into this fluidity, hiring transgender and nonbinary models and putting menswear in the womens section.

    New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is going to great lengths to establish her far-left bona fides heading into the Democrats POTUS primary. This weekend she upped the ante even further by jumping onto the transgender rights bandwagon.

All three women said in court that they were groped at fraternity parties their first semester at Yale and know many other women and gender-nonbinary...

    From A Quiet Place to A Star is Born, studios backed more films with female leads in 2018, according to new research. Out of the top 100-grossing movies, 40 films had women in central roles as either the main character or the co-lead, according to the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative. That represented an increase of eight films from the previous year and 20 movies from 2007. It is the highest percentage of female-driven films in 12 years. Hollywood has been under public pressure in recent years to tell more stories that feature women and people of color. Some of that...

    The California Department of Education is working on a plan to teach kindergartners that there are at least 15 different genders. The materials under the scheme also claim it is impossible to know whether babies are boys, girls, or something else, because they cannot talk yet. Parents will not be notified and are not allowed to opt their children out of the indoctrination sessions. According to a report in FaithWire, the proposed changes would be implemented under a revision to the state's Health Education Framework to be voted on in May. The scheme says it supports the development of knowledge,...

    Actress Kate Hudson recently revealed that she is raising her daughter "genderless" until her child decides how she wants to identify. "It doesnt really change my approach, but theres definitely a difference. I think you just raise your kids individually regardless like a genderless [approach]" Hudson, an Oscar-nominated actress said in an interview with last week, when asked if raising a girl will change her parenting style. Hudson is also a mom of two boys. "We still dont know what she's going to identify as," she said of her baby girl, Rani Rose, who was born in October....

    CNN ^ | January 22, 2019 | Sandee LaMotte,
    Living to the ripe old age of 90 may depend on your body size -- both height and weight -- as well as your level of physical activity, and seems to influence a woman's lifespan more than it does a man's, according to a new study published Monday in the medical journal BMJ. The study found women who lived to 90 were, on average, taller and had put on less weight since the age of 20 as compared to women who were shorter and heavier. No such association was seen for men. However, men saw more benefit from physical activity...

    As society continues to evolve and some critics might argue 'devolve' into a more progressive understanding of gender and sexuality, the stakes couldn't be higher. To the dismay of many parents, this societal tug-of-war over transgenderism is playing out on today's college campuses like never before and is hitting young women particularly hard. One mother, Katherine Cave, recently called attention to the issue, telling The College Fix, "I am writing to you on behalf of parents who have lost their kids at college to the transgender craze." "Many liberal colleges have significant percentages of students suddenly identifying...

    The United States Marine Corps (All Hail Chesty Puller. Oorah!) is making a bit of history today. When the 3rd Recruit Training Battalion of aspiring Marines began training at Parris Island this morning it included one all-female platoon, complete with female drill instructors. The rest of the platoons will be composed of men. The details are complicated and it’s not 100% integration for all activities, but the battalion will definitely be mixing the genders for a number of activities as they move through basic training. (The Hill) At training starting Saturday, one of the battalions at the Recruit Depot...

    While Hollywood women have made incremental gains in below-the-line jobs like producing and editing, they backslid as feature film directors and continue on a path of radical underrepresentation in the industry, a new study says. Martha Lauzens Celluloid Ceiling, a comprehensive report of womens behind-the-scenes employment in film run out of San Diego State University, hit on Thursday and its analysis comes with a blazing criticism that Hollywoods value shift is only lip service until the industry commits to transparency. The study provides no evidence that the mainstream film industry has experienced the profound positive shift predicted by so...

    New York City residents who do not identify as male or female can now opt for a third gender on their birth certificates. Under new rules that came into effect on New Year's Day, New Yorkers can choose 'X' instead of the traditional male or female. The new law was approved by the New York City Council and Board of Health last September. The revision also makes it easier for transgender people to change their gender as it removes the requirement for a doctor's note or health care provider's affidavit. New York City's Democrat mayor Bill de Blasio said at...

    New York City residents have a new option for denoting gender on their birth certificates: gender "X." A law allowing the choice of "X'' took effect Tuesday. The measure passed earlier this year. It allows people to change their birth certificates to "X'' by attesting that it reflects their "true gender identity." Parents also can choose "X'' for newborns. New York City is joining California, Oregon, Washington state in allowing an undesignated gender option on birth certificates. A similar provision takes effect in New Jersey in February. In 2014, New York City eliminated a policy that allowed birth certificate gender...

    One of Americas leading college faculty unions is decrying attempts to define gender as binary, and claims that the Trump administration and the religious fundamentalists who support such a definition are moved by ideology, not fact. The American Association of University Professors, which has 500 chapters and 39 state associations, released a statement last month titled The Assault on Gender and Gender Studies. The statement, which was created by AAUPs subcommittee of Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure and the Committee on Women in the Academic Profession, railed against the Trump administration for considering a plan to define gender...
