    On Wall Street, many men have adopted Vice President Mike Pence's sage advice: avoid having dinner alone with any woman not your wife. There are other changes in behavior with female co-workers as well: don't sit next to them on flights, book hotel rooms on separate floors, and avoid one-on-one meetings.And never close your office door when meeting with a female.It's not just Wall Street, of course. The changes are affecting businesses nationwide in every industry.Bloomberg: Across Wall Street, men are adopting controversial strategies for the #MeToo era and, in the process, making life even harder for women.

    -snip- I’ve been privately contacted by close, like-minded colleagues warning me that my public feuds with social justice activists on social media could be occupational suicide, and that I should disengage and delete my comments immediately. My experience is anything but unique, and the problem is intensifying. Having successfully cultivated power over administrations and silenced faculty by inflicting reputational terrorism on their critics and weaponizing their own fragility and outrage, one fears whether there was no belief or claim too dubious that administrations wouldn’t cater to. Recently, this fear has been realized as social justice activists attempt to jump the...

    New York Times ^ | November 24, 2018 | Andrea Long Chu
    Next Thursday, I will get a vagina. The procedure will last around six hours, and I will be in recovery for at least three months. Until the day I die, my body will regard the vagina as a wound; as a result, it will require regular, painful attention to maintain. This is what I want, but there is no guarantee it will make me happier. In fact, I don’t expect it to. That shouldn’t disqualify me from getting it. I like to say that being trans is the second-worst thing that ever happened to me. (The worst was being born...

    Women are generally attracted to manly men with big muscles and lots of money. WOW STOP THE PRESSES! I mean, can you even believe that women are still into that, given society’s #progress? Effeminate men are men too! Why aren’t we more attracted to soyboys who Uber everywhere in their jorts? The “starving artist” types are JUST AS MANLY, with their stubby manbuns and inability to pay for dinner. THIS IS SO CONFUSING! What is our DEAL, ladies?!
  • What The Creation Of Male and Female Teaches Us...gender 3

    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)And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man . And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and...
  • Male And Female; The Image Of God...gender 2

    And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them . (Genesis 1:26-27) The description of the Creation tells us that man is special. All of the rest of Creation seems to have been fashioned for the...

    Townhall.com ^ | November 14, 2018 | Walter E. Williams
    According to a recent report in The New York Times, Health and Human Services Department officials have been circulating a proposal to define sex. Their memo says, "Sex means a person's status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth." They add, "The sex listed on a person's birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person's sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence." I think the latter statement lacks complete rigor. It's chromosomes, not what's on a birth certificate, that determine one's sex. Therefore, if a fetus has XX chromosomes,...

    This story came out earlier this week but it was shocking enough that it bears a look. The transgender activist community was all abuzz on Thursday over a letter that had actually been featured in the New York Times a week earlier. Buzzfeed picked it up and ran with it, adding to the celebratory mood. The document in question was an open letter published by a gaggle of 1,600 scientists who are rejecting the anticipated HHS memo defining sex and gender in traditional, scientifically accepted terms for purposes of Title IX questions. What’s truly amazing is the fact that these...

    Your one “free” hour of the year arrived this morning at 2:00 AM, compliments of the powers that be. So for the time being everyone will spend the next week waking up an hour earlier than normal because small children, cats and dogs can’t tell time. As I’ve pointed out in the past, the only intelligent comment on DST I’ve ever heard was an observation generally attributed to a wise old Indian Native American:  “Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer...

    More than 1,600 scientists signed a letter denouncing President Trump administration’s plan to narrow the definition of gender to be strictly biological, according to Buzzfeed. The letter was written in response to a memo reportedly drafted by the Department of Health and Human Services, according to the New York Times. The memo states that any disputes about a person’s sex would be clarified using genetic testing, which scientists who signed the letter called unscientific and unethical. “This proposal is fundamentally inconsistent not only with science, but also with ethical practices, human rights, and basic dignity,” the scientists wrote. Among the...

    The fight over civil rights protections for transgender people could prove to be a major test for the Supreme Court, particularly its conservative wing, as justices weigh whether to take up the issue this term. The court has a request before it to hear a case challenging whether civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in employment extend to transgender workers. It’s a dispute that may have a significant impact on the Trump administration’s reported plans to exclude federal protections for transgender people by narrowly defining gender. The New York Time reported last week that the...

    The FIFA Council has approved the prize money for the Women's World Cup, doubling it to $30 million next year. There will also be $11.5 million shared with the 24 teams for tournament preparations and $8.5 million will be split by clubs releasing players. Players unions, though, still want more gender equality.

    Christian Apologetics ^ | 3/4/15 | Matt Slick
    It was Jesus who appeared to Thomas. Jesus is a man, and Thomas recognized him. Therefore Jesus retained his gender after his resurrection. Furthermore, Jesus retained his crucifixion wounds further demonstrating he retained his physical characteristics. So, we conclude that we will retain our gender when we are resurrected in our new glorified bodies and go to heaven. But, as I said at the beginning of this article, we will not be married nor will he have any need of procreation. But, some might ask how this is possible since the Bible says...

    Anatomy Does Not Determine Gender, Experts Say By Denise Grady Oct. 22, 2018 Defining gender as a condition determined strictly by a person’s genitals is based on a notion that doctors and scientists abandoned long ago as oversimplified and often medically meaningless. Researchers who have studied gender issues and provided health care to people who do not fit the typical M/F pigeonholes said that the Trump administration’s latest plan to define gender goes beyond the limits of scientific knowledge. “The idea that a person’s sex is determined by their anatomy at birth is not true, and we’ve known that it’s...

    New York Times cites government memo Gender would be defined at birth as only male or female The Trump administration is attempting to strip transgender people of official recognition by creating a narrow definition of gender as being only male or female and unchangeable once determined at birth, the New York Times reported. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has undertaken an effort across several departments to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans discrimination on the basis of sex, the Times said, citing a government memo. That definition...

    Hungary has banned gender studies from universities due to low enrollment, which causes waste of tax payer money, and because there are no more than two sexes. From Fox News: Left-wing critics say it’s academically problematic, politically unheard of in a democratic society, and argue gender studies degrees do lead to jobs. Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has been called the Donald Trump of Europe, signed the decree, which went into effect Saturday, removing gender studies from a list of approved master’s programs, though students already enrolled will be grandfathered in. “The Hungarian government is of the clear view that...

    Yesterday, a biological male who identifies as a female won a women's world championship cycling event. Rachel McKinnon, a professor at the College of Charleston, won the women’s sprint 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles. It's becoming more common for biological males who identify as female to win women's sporting events.  Daily Caller: McKinnon celebrated the victory on Twitter, writing: “First transgender woman world champion…ever.” Allowing biological males who identify as transgender women to compete in women’s athletic events has been a controversial subject, as critics have argued that it puts the female competitors at...
