  • MTV’s Gender Neutral Award Is Idiotic…And Worse, It’s Going To Do More Damage Than Good

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    As expected, the media lapped up the idea of MTV giving out a Gender neutral Award; the LGBTQ (i?) groups are enthralled at the idea that people would finally be judged equally regardless of their gender. But the problem is… it’s nonsense. It will do nothing to promote “the genderless society”. It will in fact, end up creating larger divisions than before. As so often is the case, social engineering by agenda driven idiots, has idiotic results. If we look at every other mainstream awards ceremony (let’s not actually watch the drivel, just a glance at the results will suffice),...
  • Emma Rosa Parks Watson: Hollywood’s next obsession is the gender-neutral awards

    Let’s not underplay this: Emma Watson just became the Rosa Parks of today’s Hollywood. Declining to honor gender demarcations just as Parks once declined to observe racial ones, Watson, holding a goofy simulacrum of a bucket of popcorn, gave a heartfelt speech Sunday night when she accepted a gender-neutral “Best Actor” award — open to males, females, and everyone in between — at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. The “non-binary performer” Asia Kate Dillon, of the TV series Billions, presented the award to Watson, honored for her work in this spring’s remake of Beauty and the Beast. Dillon hailed...

    I just want to let all the Freepers out there that I am binary proud. I believe that being either a man or a woman is something absolutely beautiful. I have to also thank the liberals for stressing me out enough to make my brain work out their problem. You see, it is as if liberals want to take everything away from us, effectively demeaning us and ultimately dehumanizing us. We are born with a gender and a race and many other attributes and those should not be alienated from us anymore than our human rights. But I know no...

    If progressives believe gender is fluid, then why not race? Philosophy professor Rebecca Tuvel touched off a firestorm of controversy this week with her paper “In Defense of Transracialism,” published in the feminist journal Hypatia. In it, Professor Tuvel argues that we ought to support those who identify with a racial group other than the one into which they were born just as we support transgender people.

    WASHINGTON, D.C, May 2, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – President Trump will sign an executive order on Thursday protecting the religious liberty of the Little Sisters of the Poor and ordinary Americans who don't subscribe to gender ideology or believe in same-sex "marriage," two "senior administration officials" have confirmed to Politico. The Nation released a leaked copy of an executive order in February that prompted outrage from the left over its protections for Christians who believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman and who don't want to be forced to fund contraception. Politico says an "influential conservative who...

  • In California you may soon be able to pick from three genders on official documents

    The title of this article is a bit on the misleading side, for which I apologize in advance. We’ve covered all manner of stories about the transgender debates sweeping the nation and at first glance that’s what this one looked like. There’s a bill under consideration in California which will allow official documents such as drivers licenses to offer three choices in the gender column. But this one has nothing to do with “choice” or political movements. It deals with a very real condition affecting a significant number of people and should be encouraged. (CBS Local) California would be...

    Behold the anthem of modern liberalism (Though you’ve probably already seen it, WARNING: vulgar and insanely stupid. After viewing, you’ll probably want to shower, pray, and spend some time with a Rubik’s Cube.): So I now know who Rachel Bloom is. Tragically, I can’t imagine a worse introduction. As a result of this sorry, sad, sick episode (everyone involved should be forced to turn in any degrees or diplomas they possess), this video, Nye, and Bloom have all been thoroughly—and deservedly—ridiculed. That’s what happens when one surrenders three whole minutes of a television program—that is supposedly devoted to “exploring...

    A new Harvard University factsheet on gender dysphoria is urging students to "fight transphobia" by learning what the university claims are facts associated with the fluidity of gender. According to Campus Reform, the Ivy League school's Office of BLGTQ Student Life recently distributed a "fact sheet" to students on campus titled "Get the facts about gender diversity. Fight transphobia." The document begins by asserting that "sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same." "Sex assigned at birth, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life are...

    The United Nations put Saudi Arabia on its commission for the empowerment of women Wednesday, despite the country mandating women can’t leave home without a male guardian. The UN’s Economic and Social Council voted by secret ballot to put Saudi Arabia on the Commission on the Status of Women. It is the principal international organization responsible for the “promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women,” according to the commission’s website.

    The gender diversity flier obtained by Campus Reform, a website funded by the conservative nonprofit the Leadership Institute, was apparently handed out around Harvard's campus. The flier from the office of BGLTQ student life said for some 'gender is fluid and changing' and that 'can be affirmed and/or expressed in many ways'.

    American race-faker Rachel Dolezal has returned to the limelight with her first ever visit to Africa on a lecture tour about race – a move which has been met with outrage, calls for a boycott and a string of scathing memes. Police flanked Ms Dolezal's first key note event after a hostile meeting with mostly black students who objected to her insistence that she had 'an authentic black identity' despite admitting to being 'biologically white'.

    For a change, the ultra-liberal New York Times sort of got it right. Pushing back against the reflexive tendency of so many on the Left embrace “gender fluidity” and to even encourage people to claim that they are really of a gender different than that of their birth and biology, the Times published an op-ed by Lisa Selin Davis which reads in part: “I just wanted to check,” the teacher said. “Your child wants to be called a boy, right? Or is she a boy that wants to be called a girl? Which is it again?” I cocked my...

    As fate would have it, Hillary Clinton spoke at last month's Hillary Rodham Clinton Awards for Advancing Women in Peace and Security, where she emphasized the importance of peace, of women and of women in peace. "When women participate in peacekeeping and peacemaking we are all safer and more secure," said Clinton, who boasted of "evidence-based" research that backs up this claim. And she's right. Including women in the peacemaking process is often a valuable way of securing peace in war-torn countries. But she also got in what was seen as a partisan shot at the Trump administration. At one...

    Even if a guy has a great personality, a woman looking for a date still hopes he's at least a little cute, a new study suggests. Researchers asked young women (ages 15 to 29) to choose potential dates from a series of photographs and descriptions, while the women's mothers (ages 37 to 61) were asked to select possible boyfriends for their daughters using the same information. Results showed that a man's looks influenced both groups of women more strongly than his personality profile. This held true even if a man's profile was filled with highly desirable personal qualities, such as...

    Iceland's parliament is examining a bill that would require companies to prove they offer equal pay to employees. The law, which is set to become a world first, aims to close the wage gap between men and women. Companies face auditing and possible fines if they do not comply. Iceland was ranked first in the World Economic Forum's 2015 Global Gender Gap Index, followed by Norway, Finland and Sweden. However, according to Iceland's statistics for the same year, the unadjusted gender pay gap remained at 17%. The bill, which was presented on Tuesday, is supported by the centre-right coalition government...

    Previously, when people scoffed at the idea of language as being an important building block of civilized social structure I would simply roll my eyes. These days… not so much. We’ve covered more than a few stories here about special snowflakes on college campuses or writers at Alt-Left publications demanding this or that change to the English (or more properly “American”) language to accommodate “transgender” sensitivities. As has happened all too often across the span of history, it’s easy enough to simply mock these trends and wait for them to die off like the fad of swallowing live goldfish or...

    Pablo Gomez Jr. was a University of California, Berkeley, senior majoring in Latino studies and a prominent campus activist when authorities say he stabbed to death a popular elementary-school teacher. Soon, the crime that police described as "very brutal and unusual" in a city that reported just two homicides last year was sucked up into the debate over gender identity when it was reported that Gomez preferred to be called "they" rather than "he."

    Men ruin everything. And liberals ruin everything. So, if you do the math, you'll see that liberal men ruin everything like twicely or something. (Math was never really my subject. Or Grammar.) But it seems now that liberals and men are hell bent on destroying women's sports. Just a few decades after the liberal agenda gave us Title IX which demanded that educational institutions offer just as many scholarships for women's sport as they do men's sports, now liberals are demanding that men can call themselves women and that will effectively eradicate women's sports. You see, the first thing took...
