    A student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania was kicked out of a religious studies course when he stood up in class to argue that, biologically, there are only two genders. As reported by Campus Reform, Religious Studies major Lake Ingle was in a class February 28 that included a video lecture by “transgender woman” Paula Stone Williams, a man who used to be a prominent pastor and church planter before deciding that he felt more comfortable as a woman.
  • Separate But Equal Elections Adopted by Democrats in Maryland

    MC GOP ^ | March 11, 2018 | Sharon L. Cohen
    As a female and a Republican – yes, shock and awe, there are women Republicans in Montgomery County – I cannot stop laughing at the recent decision by the Maryland Democrat Party to adopt separate but equal elections for their central committee members. Half of their central committee members must be female and the other half male, but that is not new. What is new is that during this year’s June 26 primary for 17 counties, each voter will HAVE to Vote for one or more MALES on the Male ballot and one or more FEMALES on the Female part...

    My brother was kind enough to pass this article along to ruin my weekend: We Nneed the Singular ‘They’ – and It Won’t Seem Wrong For Long. He thought it could provide fodder for my Monday Moanin’ post, and that it did, splendiferously. He noted that while “it was written by an educated woman who clearly knows better, her allegiance to the 198 or so newly discovered genders demands that she take this position.”The article is written by Stephanie Golden, a ground breaking editor in her own right who has been serving humanity with gender equality copy since the late...

    On Sunday night, in a restroom at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, I was washing my hands when someone in a crimson ballgown swept past me toward the stalls. There was something about this person's energy that was different than that of other women who were milling around, redoing their lipstick, chatting about the Oscars show. I felt I knew this person in the crimson gown. Or had seen them somewhere before. So I left the bathroom and waited outside, in the lobby. And when this person left the ladies room, I stopped them to chat.

    In recent years, society has focused more on issues affecting girls and women than on those related to boys and men. But now, in all 63 of the largest developed nations, boys are falling behind girls in all academic subjects – especially the biggest predictors of success, reading and writing, in their mental health (depression, suicides), physical health (lower sperm counts), IQ, ability to create friends, and so on.Dr. Warren Farrell, who has written extensively on men and family, just released a book with co-author John Gray, the bestselling author of Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus. The Boy...
  • College lists 'ne,' 've,' 'ey' as gender neutral pronouns

    The Kennesaw State University LBGT Resource Center recently produced a new pamphlet that adds “ne,” “ve,” “ey,” “ze,” and “xe” to the list of gender neutral pronouns. *snip* The pamphlet—which lists seven different types of gender neutral pronouns—encourages students to ask their friends, classmates, and coworkers how they identitify before making any assumptions. The guide does warn, however, that students “may change their pronouns without changing their name, appearance, or gender identity,” and suggests that preferred pronouns be re-confirmed regularly during “check-ins at meetings or in class.”

    Bosses of the BBC Proms have promised to make sure women make up half the contemporary composers whose music is performed each year. The Proms is among 45 international music festival and conferences that have pledged to achieve or maintain a 50/50 gender balance by 2022. David Pickard, director of BBC Proms, said: 'Achieving a 50/50 gender balance of contemporary composers is something we have been committed to for some time and consider vital to the creative development of the world's largest classical music festival.' At last year's festival, ten out of 29 contemporary composers were women.

    Students at Carleton College recently hosted an “all-gender” rendition of The Vagina Monologues in an effort to eschew the play’s roots in a “cisgender lens.” While productions of The Vagina Monologues have been a mainstay of campus feminist groups since its debut in 1996, the play has often been criticized by college students for its lack of focus on people of color and trans students.

    I’m not sure how this is faring on your side of the border, but here in America (and, apparently, elsewhere, see here and here), your use of the word “peoplekind” has raised some eyebrows.I’m referring, of course, to your interaction with a woman in your live audience who stated that “maternal love is the love that’s going to change the future of mankind”. You interrupted her to say, “We like to say ‘peoplekind’, not necessarily ‘mankind’, because it’s more inclusive.”Now, I don’t mean to be pedantic, but I think the word you wanted to use was “humankind,” an acceptable alternative...
  • U.S. Episcopal Diocese Votes to Stop Using Masculine Pronouns for God

    WASHINGTON, D.C., February 1, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Episcopal church in the Diocese of Washington, D.C., passed a resolution last week to stop using masculine pronouns for God in future updates to its Book of Common Prayer. The resolution to stop using "gendered language for God" was passed quickly by delegates to the Diocese's 123rd Convention. “If revision of the Book of Common Prayer is authorized, to utilize expansive language for God from the rich sources of feminine, masculine, and non-binary imagery for God found in Scripture and tradition and, when possible, to avoid the use of gendered pronouns for...

    India's preference for sons over daughters has led to the birth of millions of "unwanted" girls, according to a new report by the Indian government. Couples' tendency to keep trying until a boy is born has led to the birth of as many as 21 million girls who are "notionally... unwanted," the Economic Survey 2017-18 states.

    Let’s stop polluting our language with the word “gender.” Corruption of the English language was Point A on the road to President Obama’s directive to de-privatize and de-sex all school restrooms nationwide. The ploy that got us all into the lazy habit of using the empty term “gender” in place of the accurate word “sex” has its roots in gender ideology, which cultural Marxists pushed for many decades. Since cultural Marxism is nothing but nihilism, it shouldn’t surprise us that “gender” can mean whatever you want or don’t want it to mean. In other words, there’s no there there. George...

    Twenty-eight years ago, the release of “When Harry Met Sally” highlighted one big debate: whether men and women could really be just friends. That question may still be up in the air, but now we are being forced to confront a more fundamental debate: whether men can really become women. America is in the midst of what has been called a “transgender moment.” In the space of a year, transgender issues went from something that most Americans had never heard of to a cause claiming the mantle of civil rights. But can a boy truly be “trapped” in a girl’s...

    The State Department announced a new $600,000 taxpayer-funded study that suggests "ideals of masculinity" in Kenya are contributing to terrorism.The department's Bureau of Counterterrorism is seeking a nonprofit group to "explore gender identities of boys and men in Kenya." The grant proposal states that men being "tough, heterosexual, aggressive, unemotional, and achieving" can make them vulnerable to joining Islamic extremist groups."Gender is increasingly recognized as an essential aspect to understanding and countering violent extremism throughout the world," the State Department said. "To date, research and interventions on gender in Kenya have predominantly focused on the role of women and girls...

    I used to think America needed a parent to help it behave. Now I think it needs a grandparent. Our culture has been so confused for so long on so many essentials, and has gotten so crosswise on the issue of men and women, that we need more than ever the wisdom of the aged. That was my thought as I read this week’s sexual-harassment story, about the 30-something TV star, the girl in her 20s and their terrible date.

The man was tortured for hours, arguing the objective reality of two genders, being told he was “mentally deranged” and suffering from “a defective worldview” before finally giving in. “Do you remember writing in an email that there are only two genders?” he was...

    The mountains women can literally not climb GenderAnd First Person: An uphill battle against the belief that “Agasthya was a ‘brahmachari’” and so women shouldn’t climb the Agasthyarkoodam peak. Agasthyarkoodam, one of the highest mountain-peaks in Kerala, is a trekkers’ paradise. It is home to rare medicinal herb species in the world. Named after the Vedic sage Agasthya, the mountain-range is close to state capital Thiruvananthapuram and has a tribal population living in its deep forests. However, it has another odd, infamous distinction. It remains possibly the only mountain range that women are not allowed to climb. Though trekking is...

    A European country has become the first in the world to make it illegal to pay men more than women. In Iceland, firms that employ more than 25 people must now obtain a government certificate demonstrating pay equality, under new rules that kicked in on 1 January. Those who fail to show equality will face penalty fines, according to broadcaster Al Jazeera. The law was announced on March 8 on International Women's Day 2017 as part of the Nordic country's drive to eradicate the gender pay gap by 2022. It comes after the UK reported a 16.9% pay gap between...

    Another day, another extremely false “academic” study. More like “epidemic” study. An epidemic of false information and bias. We’ve often talked about the efforts of the left to push an agenda by fabricating factoids. But this is just rich. This new study wants us to believe 1/3 of Californian teens are queer. Of course, it’s from California. Researchers out of the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research analyzed data from the 2015-2016 version of the California Health Interview Survey, which collected data from 1,300 households.
