    I'm an advocate of higher education and all, but so much for assuming that the development of common sense and sound judgment are part of the package. A Pew Research Center poll found that 77 percent of Democrats with a bachelor's degree or more believe a person's gender can be different from the sex they were "assigned at birth." You'll remember that Democrats are the party of science, and Republicans the Neanderthal science-deniers. First we have to ask ourselves why in the world it would occur to anyone of any gender at any time or any place even to conduct...

    Three out of four college-educated Democrats seem to believe that a man can be a woman if he just says so, regardless of his biology, genetics, and genitalia, according to a skewed survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.

    Three out of four college-educated Democrats seem to believe that a man can be a woman if he just says so, regardless of his biology, genetics, and genitalia, according to a skewed survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.The main question in the August-to-September survey of 4,573 people is built on the phrase: “sex assigned at birth.” But that phrase was invented by transgender activists to help them claim that every person’s sex is independent of their biology and that a newborn’s sex should not be unfairly “assigned” by the doctors and parents who examine the newborns’ biology and visible genitalia. The...

    Moves to make French more female-friendly have sparked impassioned debate in France, with an appalled Academie Francaise warning of a "mortal danger" to the language of Moliere. At the centre of the debate is the growing use of formulations such as "lecteur.rice.s" for the word "readers" to embrace both genders.

    Its why, at Powderhorns May Day Cafe, a small sign taped to the counter bears a polite request: The May Day Cafe asks that you use gender-neutral language when addressing its employees. Thank you. A similar note, modeled after May Days, went up next to the cash register at Taco Cats Midtown Global Market stall in September: Please use gender-neutral language when addressing our staff. Thanks for being a pal. I think gendered language is pretty integrated in restaurant culture, says Taco Cat co-owner Tristan Jimerson.

    Sex reassignment is as natural as being born, some in the media tell us. And many Americans are buying it. But a growing chorus of dissenters made up of physicians, researchers, and even transgender individuals is beginning to paint a far different picture of the truth. These dissenters are now coming forward to expose just how harmful gender transition and reassignment areboth medically and sociologically speaking. First, consider recent revelations about how problematic sex reassignment surgery is as a therapy for gender dysphoria. In an interview with The Telegraph, world-renowned genital reconstructive surgeon Miroslav Djordjevic said his clinics are experiencing...

    A proposed education regulation in Delaware allows children to self-identify as any race and gender regardless of reality. All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race, Regulation 225 says, and that will be maintained in official records. The regulation stipulates that students parents may only be notified of their childs trans-race or transgender identification if they are supportive of the student and his or her confusion. It says: A school may request permission from the parent or legal guardian of a minor student before a self identified gender or race is accepted; provided, however, that...

    One of the many reasons Donald Trump won the presidency was to push back on the many progressive causes imposed on the American people without discussion until after the fact. Promotion of gender-neutral confusion is pushed on the nation's children at school, at times without the knowledge and/or consent of the parents because enlightened liberals know better. With that, Halloween has now become another American holiday tradition under assault by politically correct, easily triggered liberals and they've taken yet another opportunity to push their agenda in the faces of Americans in what one group considers "heartwarming".

    Emily Nash, an 8th grader from Massachusetts, won a golf tournament for teen boys but was denied the trophy because she is a girl. She was entered into the D3 Central Boys Golf Tournament as part of her school's (Lunenberg High School) team and shot a 75 using the same tees as the boys. She captured the top spot by 4 strokes but her score was only counted towards her team's score, not as an individual score. Richard Pearson, Assistant Executive Director of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Associations attempted to explain the matter, "We have girls play in the spring...

    In an interview with The Sunday Times, singer Sam Smith says that he considers himself gender non-binary. Now, normal people probably don't know what that is, but it basically means that he refuses to choose between being a man or a woman. Hence the "non-binary." It's neither either/or, it's "and." To prove that he's "non-binary," Smith points out that he loves him some high heels and fur coats: "I've got loads of heels at home... "People don't know this, but when I was 17, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn, and all that. There was one moment...

    Prior to the release of his sophomore album, Thrill of It All, Sam Smith told U.K. newspaper The Sunday Times about his own gender fluidity. "I love a heel," Smith said. "I've got loads of heels at home. People don't know this, but when I was 17, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn, and all that. There was one moment in my life where I didn't own a piece of male clothing, really. I would wear full make-up every day in school, eyelashes, leggings with Dr. Martens and huge fur coats for two and a...

    What Are My Healthcare Rights? What are my rights in health insurance?The Affordable Care Act (or “Obamacare”) prohibits most health insurers from discriminating based on gender identity and transgender status. Insurance companies that receive federal funding or that have one or more plans on a federal or state Marketplace have to comply with this requirement. That includes all major insurance companies and the majority of smaller insurance companies, but some small health insurance companies may not be covered.Here are some policies or practices that would be illegal under the ACA: Excluding transition-related care from coverage: Insurance companies can’t have automatic or...

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor told college students in New York City that she sometimes feels great turmoil inside when she is hearing arguments on the bench, but works hard to keep her emotions and personal biases in check. [] You cant do human activity and judging is a human activity without having human emotions, she told the crowd at the LeFrak Concert Hall. The sense of how you deal with it is to acknowledge it. I look at it, examine it, try to figure out the effect its having, and then try to adjust my behavior...

    While working on another study this afternoon, I stumbled across some figures that might be enlightening to others. It was surprising to me. You see, I'm a member of a very special group. Born white, male, and over 65 years of age, I'm guilty of white Privilege, (according to some people). Yes, I am hanging my head in shame, moving it from side to side. ( /s ) How did I ever sink to this level? Clearly there is a problem. (Or is there?) Can I ever atone for this? Can you? Our white youth are considered to have an...

    California can now start jailing people that refuse to use the preferred gender pronouns of nursing home residents after Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill Thursday. The laws effect is limited to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, but mandates that those who willfully and repeatedly refuse to use a transgender residents preferred name or pronouns can be slapped with a $1,000 fine and up to one year in prison, according to the California Heath and Safety code. Known as the LGBT Senior Bill Of Rights, the legislation also requires nursing homes and care facilities to allow residents...

At a news conference Monday, Schultz"s family's attorney said the student was experiencing a "mental breakdown" on the night on the shooting. "What was Scout...
