  • Gender Confusion: A Tool of the Left

    The Democratic Party has gone off the deep end in many more ways than just pushing socialism. One sign is the fanatical embrace of identity politics, which has become the hallmark of the Party of Obama (POO). Look at Vermont. There, the Democrats' primary race for governor was won by Christine Hallquist. What is unusual is that Hallquist calls himself a "transgender woman." To put it more accurately and without any politically correct gloss, Hallquist is a male pretending to be a woman. His pretending isn't all that convincing, as evidenced by this YouTube clip from Time magazine. CLICK ABOVE...

    When I heard about the tragic murder of 18-year-old Nia Wilson, who was stabbed to death in an unprovoked attack in Oakland last month, I could feel my heart begin to bleed. My community of black women were grieving yet again. As we grappled with the realities of Nia’s death, I began to use Instagram to facilitate a discussion and flesh out questions like: How many more black women and girls must die before mainstream media considers it a worthy story to cover? How could they possibly take away her white male murderer so gently in handcuffs, while black men...
  • Massachusetts Republican beats trans driver’s license bill by forcing votes on all 73 genders

    Legislation to add a “Gender X” option to driver’s license should have been a straightforward task in the far-left state of Massachusetts, but one Republican lawmaker managed to derail the bill by taking transgender ideology to its furthest extreme. The state Senate voted in June to approve the measure, which would have also extended the option to learner’s permits and state identification cards. No documentation would have been required to prove an applicant is neither male nor female. “It’s a milestone,” bill sponsor Sen. Karen Spilka, a Democrat, said at the time. Despite the state House of Representatives being just...

    FiveThirtyEight reporters use bias and selective ‘facts’ to color how they report their “hard numbers,” and appear to have a bone of contention with Catholic hospitals in the US. FiveThirtyEight.com is an Opposition Media website that assures us of its superiority and authority: “FiveThirtyEight uses statistical analysis — hard numbers — to tell compelling stories about elections, politics, sports, science, economics and culture.” What that glowing description leaves out is that FiveThirtyEight reporters also use bias and selective ‘facts’ to color how they report their “hard numbers.” And speaking of firmness, the website appears to have a bone of contention...

    The Hungarian government is discontinuing programs in gender studies at state-run universities after determining the programs serve no identifiable purpose and are based on “ideology rather than science.” Bence Rétvári, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Human Resources (EMMI), said that university degrees must be rooted in a scientific basis, whereas gender studies, “like Marxist-Leninism,” are more aptly termed ideology than science, and are inappropriate matter for university-level education. A spokesman for the Hungarian government told Breitbart News that there is no demand for gender studies graduates in the Hungarian job market.

    The Political Correctness Police, starting with the perpetually victimized GLAAD (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and a group called 50/50 by 2020, are trying to impose quotas on everything Hollywood does. Leftist fascism is not on the march. It is galloping. They are part of an open letter signed by titans of the Hollywood left that demands an "unprecedented cultural moment." They demand the entertainment elite "use its power to improve the lives of trans people by changing America's understanding about who trans people are." GLAAD claims there were no transgender characters in 109 movies released by major...

    Pret a Manger introduced female character Annie alongside a male snack Godfrey but decided to rebrand them as gingerbread biscuits. Lovers of the snack have blasted the sandwich chain and labelled it PC madness. Annoyed customers took to Twitter to vent their frustrations with many asking why they just couldn’t be called a gingerbread man and gingerbread woman. One posted: “The world is going mad it’s a biscuit. “We will end up calling them ‘the gingerbread treat shaped like a person that you can have one of once a week as they are too high in calories for a daily...

    A national sorority has announced that its Harvard University chapter will close, in what appears to be the first dissolution of a student organization in response to the Ivy League school’s adoption two years ago of penalties for members of single-gender student clubs. The Zeta Phi-Cambridge Area chapter of the Delta Gamma organization voted in May to relinquish its charter, and after a 60-day comment period, leaders of the national organization voted unanimously to close the chapter, according to a statement. A Delta Gamma spokeswoman and leaders of the Harvard chapter could not be reached for comment Sunday evening. The...

    ALBERTA, July 30, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – An anonymous car shopper in Alberta known only as “David” isn’t transgendered, but pretending to be helped him save a lot of money on his car insurance. Earlier this month CBC News spoke with David, who explained how he came up with the idea while shopping for a new Chevrolet Cruze. His insurance company told him it would come with a premium of about $4,500 per year due to previous tickets and a collision. If he was a woman, he learned, that cost would only be $3,400. "I was pretty angry about that. And...

    A federal judge on Wednesday ordered Wisconsin to cover the costs for gender reassignment surgeries for two transgender Medicaid recipients. Wisconsin residents Cody Flack and Sara Ann Makenzie filed a lawsuit in April over a state rule adopted in 1996 that denied coverage for undefined "transsexual" surgeries, according to The Associated Press. In the suit, Flack and Makenzie argued that the state rule denying them coverage for surgeries to treat their gender dysphoria is a violation of the Affordable Care Act and their rights to equal protection. They argued that the treatment they are seeking is medically necessary, according to...

    Meanwhile, If the debut of the “Theybies” isn’t a clarion call for home schooling, then nothing is Have you ever heard members of either the Bernie Sanders’ ‘Democrat Socialists’ or Nancy Pelosi’s ‘Progressive Socialists’ refer to migrant children separated from their parents at the border as “Theybies”? Of course not! “Theybies” is the name Democrats of all stripes reserve exclusively for American children, the ones they work so hard to see transgendered at grade school. “Theybies” is the birth child of hypocritical Democrats who claim to own a monopoly on loving children.

    NBC published this video report yesterday about a family in Cambridge, Massachusetts which has decided to raise their 3-year-old twins as “theybies.” That’s a thing, apparently, albeit with a relatively small number of people thus far. The idea is to raise kids without ever referring to them as boys or girls, he or her, or any other binary gender language. NBC reports only a few hundred parents nationwide are taking this path at present. Even if it’s really a few thousand, that not very significant in the scheme of things. As someone who believes there are innate differences between boys...

    Rather than allowing male politicians to insist that they’re really feminists, society should insist that they should drop their pretence. Avowed male feminists should be forced into the reality of admitting their biological genders soonest Self identifying feminists like Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who allegedly groped a female reporter before telling her the day after in what CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) called ”an apology of sorts” when he said: “If I had known you were reporting for a national paper I never would have been so forward”, is escaping the wrath of the progressive #MeToo Movement. Proof positive that...

    In the UK, the National Health Service has thrown out a doctor: A doctor has been “sacked” as a medical assessor for a government department after refusing to renounce his Christian belief that gender is determined at birth, the Sunday Telegraph can reveal. Dr David Mackereth has worked for 26 years as an NHS doctor but was told he could not be employed as a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) disability assessor if he refused to identify patients as being of a sex that they did not see themselves as. The 55-year-old father of four believes sex is genetic...

    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...

    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...

    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...
