  • House bill requires women to sign up for draft

    The Stars and Stripes ^ | February 4, 2016 | Travis J. Tritten
    WASHINGTON -- Two House Republicans introduced a bill Thursday requiring eligible women in the United States to sign up for the military draft, just days after it was recommended by the Marine Corps and Army. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a Marine veteran, and Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Minn., a retired Navy SEAL, filed the Draft American's Daughters Act to stoke debate over the military's historic move to fully integrate female troops into all combat roles. If passed, women from 18-26 years old would for the first time have to join men in registering with the Selective Service program and potentially be...

    Labor Department adds 'transgender status, gender identity' to workplace discrimination listThe Department of Labor is seeking to remove the terms "he" and "she" from a regulation prohibiting discrimination in the workforce in an effort to "avoid the gender binary." The agency is also adding "sex stereotyping, transgender status, and gender identity" to the list of types of employment discrimination banned under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. If adopted, the regulation would cost job training centers millions of dollars to change their equal employment opportunity posters to include "gender identity."

    Schoolchildren as young as 13 in Brighton, England were told to fill out a government survey that asked them to pick out their gender (or genders) from a list of 25 options. Yes -- gender or genders. Among the options were "tri-gender" (having exactly three genders,) "gender fluid" (having your gender change over time,) "demi-boy/demi-girl" (someone who is only partially male/female,) and "all genders" (which would be an infinite number because gender is obviously a spectrum.) Below is the complete list, from which instructed students to "choose as many as [they] want:" Male Female Girl Boy Tomboy (Young) woman (Young)...

    EVERETT, Wash. - A man wearing a bra and wig was arrested Friday after he was spotted in a women's bathroom at Everett Community College, police said. Officers responded to the scene at about 1:30 p.m. after a college staff member said she saw the man go into the women's rest room and alerted security personnel. An investigation found that the suspect had gone into the rest room while two women were inside, according to a police report. The women were later interviewed and said they had no idea that the man was there. When police interviewed the man, he...

    Evidently, to the White House, the findings within reports and surveys are subjects of convenience. They only matter when they conform to the broader agenda, otherwise they're meaningless. The dismissal of the Marine Corps and special operations community in the gender integration process is proof of this fact. snip*** It's imperative that each job maintains the highest standards and continue developing the highest quality personnel, regardless of gender, quotas or any other benchmark. The significance of this process requires more thoroughness and evaluation than what's been given so far, including whether women will now be eligible for the selective service....

Robert Neller directing him to review the Marine Corp's position titles to ensure their gender neutrality. Mabus told Neller to drop the term "man" from position titles so that they become gender integrated by the deadline of April 1, according to the Marine Corps Times. "As we achieve full integration of the force ... this is an opportunity to update the position titles and descriptions themselves to demonstrate through this language that women are included in these MOSs,"...

    I suppose it might come as some cold comfort that we’re apparently not the only nation losing our collective minds. Over in Great Britain the “transgender” craze has hit the hallowed halls of government, with at least some of their leaders now finding that including the listing of one’s gender on minor documents like your drivers license and passport is a microagression of some sort. So there’s only one thing to do, citizens. De-gender the documents! (Mashable) People’s gender should be removed from official documents, such as passports and driving licences, in a bid to end transgender discrimination, a...

    In an effort to discipline its inhabitants into respecting transgender preferences, the New York City Commission on Human Rights updated the City's discrimination rules to incorporate a $250,000 fine for failure to use an individual's desired gender-based pronoun when addressing that person either orally or in writing. The new rule is more complex than simply using cues from the way a person is dressed to guess whether to refer to that person as "he" or "she." A whole panoply of possible pronouns is covered by the ordinance. These include he/him/his, she/her/hers, as well as others such as they/them/theirs and ze/hir....

Would you say that he had serious mental and emotional issues and needed professional help?That would be the expected reaction, but today, we must expect the unexpected. And so, we are now told that this man is both transgender and transager.

    Speaking at an event for women in Los Angeles this week, Barbra Streisand complained that society is so misogynistic, even female laboratory mice are being discriminated against. "Gender discrimination drives me crazy," said the multiple Grammy and Academy award-winning actress and singer. "Women are still treated as second-class citizens when it comes to equal pay in the workplace and equal representation in Congress." [Snip] Streisand, who has made contributions toward heart disease research for nearly three decades, then spoke out about gender inequality in medical research. "Gender inequality even extends to mice in the labs," she said. "They're all male!"...

    This week’s hidden camera video is pretty simple. Sometimes, simple works best. Right now, in 2015, the LGBTQAAI community (yes that’s the real acronym now) is instructing people (namely your kids at school) that you should never assume someone’s pronoun. It’s always more polite to ask. Always. So I did exactly that. Not with leftist, #SJW feminists, but with everyday people. How do you think women reacted to being asked “I’m sorry, how do you identify? As a woman, man or gender neutral? What are your preferred gender pronouns?” Go ahead, take a guess. Then watch the video to find...

    Years before the White House was lit in rainbow colors celebrating the Supreme Court's decision legalizing same-sex marriage, President Obama used a routine bureaucratic tool that ended up significantly changing the government's understanding of gender and how it can be changed. The process began during Obama's first year in office when he issued a memo in June 2009 instructing agencies to extend to same-sex couples some benefits that the spouses of federal employees receive. Over time, that directive led to a decision by the Social Security Administration to greatly lower the threshold requirements for changing one's sex on official government...

As a public high school student, she wants the school to recognize her as a girl, to call her by her new legal name, to allow her to use the girls' bathroom and to accept her in girls' athletic programs. Her high school in Palatine, Illinois, has pretty much complied. Teachers call the girl by her female name. She uses the girls' bathroom. She plays on a girls' sports team.

    It is said that the way to a mans heart is through his stomach, but a new study suggests that when it comes to sex, food is the last thing on his mind. Researchers have found that the male brain is hardwired to seek out sex, even at the expense of a good meal, with specific neurons firing up to over-ride the desire to eat. Intriguingly, women do not have the same neurons, suggesting that sex for females comes secondary to sustenance.

And so, the unisex "Dixie Cup," or enlisted white hat, will come into being and be available for wear by E-6s and below next April. Female sailors will also be allowed to carry bigger purses, so long as they match their shoes. "Having service members don the same headgear is symbolic of a Navy that is gender-blind," said Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen, a Navy spokesman. "We have been working hard to design covers and uniforms that improve uniformity across the...

    What are some real world examples of gender equality benefiting the economy? There are four main ways in which gender equality contributes to growth. The first is simply the increase in the number of people who are economically engaged, whether as workers or business owners. A significant proportion of the economic growth experienced in the US and in Europe during the 20th century was caused by the entry of women into the labor force. The second is the improved efficiency in resource use. Today, there are more women in higher education than men, both in Europe and the US. If...

    In the present postmodern world, we are told that there is no such thing as a biologically distinct gender. Instead, gender is now socially constructed. It can be defined by the individual in almost any way he or she sees fit. In the old days, many clinical psychologists would have believed that Caitlyn Jenner who first came to fame as Olympian Bruce Jenner is experiencing a well-chronicled psychological state known as transvestism, or the innate pleasure in wearing the clothes and assuming the manners and appearance of the opposite sex. Jenner, however, identifies as transgendered. But even if...

    Fridays Washington Post hyped a new trend in fashion on the front of the Style section. The headline was His. Hers. Theirs. Whoevers. In an increasingly genderless fashion industry, if the blouse fits, wear it. Fashion writer Robin Givhan championed designers who are asking Why are clothes assigned a gender at all? The story began: The end of gender is near. Menswear designers are on a mission to eradicate it. Some are going full bore, wielding lace shirts and floppy, grandma blouses like cultural grenades. Others are taking a stealth approach, quietly chiseling away the boundaries between masculinity and femininity...

    A report has claimed that residents in Oregon are only now finding out that the state allows teenagers as young as 15-years-old to get state-subsidized sex-change operations without parental notification."It is trespassing on the hearts, the minds, the bodies of our children," Lori Porter of Parents' Rights in Education told Fox Newson Thursday. "They're our children. And for a decision, a life-altering decision like that to be done unbeknownst to a parent or guardian, it's mindboggling."The report says that the policy, the first of its kind in the nation, was enacted in January, and that residents are "stunned" that the...

    Facebook now offers more than 50 ways for users to identify their gender. Says one exec, Gender neutral is kind of the new thing. With Bruce Jenners transition to Caitlyn, transgender issues have become front and center in the mainstream cultural conversation. But among many young people, there is a much bigger conversation going on about gender. The whole notion of binary female and male gender norms is being seen as limiting, and unnecessary. At elite liberal arts colleges like Vassar and Wesleyan, students have earnest conversations about gender being a social construct, and bathrooms are gender neutral,...

    Last years most popular baby names were Benjamin and Emma, but this year the top boy and girl names could actually be the same. 2015 is looking like the year of the gender-neutral baby names, according to a midyear report by BabyCenter.com. Currently, names like Amari, Karter, Phoenix, Quinn and Reese have been making the largest leaps in popularity. As usual, baby names are reflecting a larger cultural shift, says BabyCenters Global Editor in Chief Linda Murray. Millennials are an open-minded and accepting group, and they dont want their children to feel pressured to conform to stereotypes that might be...

    [BIG SNIP]The Quakers[new penitentiary system using isolation]experiment revealed that the consultation of ones inner self without outside reference or constraints, with nothing to measure ones self against, could produce distorted human beings who became certifiably mad. Self-proclaimed gods can turn out to be a Caligula or a Jim Jones.Just as bad as the fact consulting the inner light can result in the exhibition of mad or corrupt behavior is the fact that the newly minted gods believe themselves to be entitled to demand obeisance from us mere mortals.We mere everyday humans must bow down and worship the deities among us....

    <p>In fairness to them, some of the reason for the upset is righteous. “Alexander Hamilton is not someone that people have a problem with,” said the director of the Women On 20s campaign. Why kick the great man off the currency instead of the far more dubious Andrew Jackson? I couldn’t agree more.</p>

    If youre a fan of Netflixs popular series Orange is the New Black, chances are you recognize its newest star Ruby Rose, the tattooed actress and model who identifies as gender fluid. Rose has been promoting the idea of gender fluidity recently, and told Elle.com that although she was born a woman, she doesnt feel like one; therefore she doesnt identify as any specific gender. Gender fluidity is not really feeling like youre at one end of the spectrum or the other, Rose explained to the site last week. For the most part, I definitely dont identify as any gender....

    Ever since the Rachel Dolezal story exploded onto the Internet, the Left and some on the libertarian Right have been intent on doing their condescending, conclusory, eye-rolling best to dismiss any notion that Dolezals story is in any way comparable to Bruce Jenners. Caitlyn is a woman, and Dolezal is a fraud, and thats that. Or, as the Washington Posts Jonathan Capehart put it in much-quoted Twitterspeak: FTLOG, Caitlyn Jenner is not pretending to be a woman. Move along . . . FTLOG, Caitlyn Jenner is not pretending to be a woman. Move along https://t.co/BbWGFCSFRL Jonathan...

    I read the headline over at the Washington Post (via Newsalert) and I can’t say I was surprised: The average American woman weighs 166.2 pounds, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As reddit recently pointed out, that’s almost exactly as much as the average American man weighed in the early 1960s.Men, you’re not looking too hot in this scenario either. Over the same time period you gained nearly 30 pounds, from 166.3 in the 60s to 195.5 today. Doing the same comparison as above, today’s American man weighs almost as much as 1.5 American women from...
