    The left-leaning Jewish Daily Forward goes all-in to defend Footie Pajamas Boy, by accusing the right of “a centuries-old nexus of anti-Semitism and misogyny.” (Link safe; goes to Hot Air. I’m not rewarding a Website extra traffic for trolling the Interwebs): In fact, Pajama Boy stands at a centuries-old nexus of anti-Semitism and misogyny. As scholars including Sander Gilman and Daniel Boyarin have shown, Jewish men have been accused of being unmanly for hundreds of years – including by other Jews, such as the early Zionists, whose muscular Judaism was a direct response to diaspora Jewish emasculation. This is an...

    Conservatives are in a tizzy over a seemingly innocuous Obamacare ad from Organizing for Action featuring a young man in pajamas. He’s “a metrosexual hipster in a plaid onesie” scowled National Review’s Charles Cooke, a “vaguely androgynous, student-glasses-wearing, Williamsburg hipster.” He’s also “carefully ambi-racial.” Pajama boy can’t even fight, Cooke’s colleague, Jim Geraghty, surmises. “My money is on the guy from Big Bang Theory once they throw down in a slap fight,” writes Geraghty, a grown man calling someone else a child as he imagines a fight between two fictional characters. “An insufferable man-child,” writes Rich Lowry at Politico, who...

    Dr Susannah Cornwall claimed that it is “simply a best guess” that Jesus was male. Her comments, which are bound to provoke fury in some quarters, were published in response to the ongoing debate about women bishops in the Church of England. Dr Cornwall, of Manchester University’s Lincoln Theological Institute, describes herself on her blog as specialising in: “Research and writing in feminist theology, sexuality, gender, embodiment, ethics and other fun things like that.” In her paper “Intersex & Ontology, A Response to The Church, Women Bishops and Provision”, she argues that it is not possible to know “with any...

    Three years ago, the Washington state association that regulates fair play in high school athletics faced an unusual query from administrators: what should they do about four boys who wanted to participate on girls' teams. One had his eye on volleyball, two wanted to be cheerleaders and a fourth did not specify his area of interest. After consultation, it developed a novel policy that says all students should be able to participate in sports "in a manner that is consistent with their gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on a student's records." Upon a student's request, the idea is...
  • Sex change: University of Illinois Professor Gets $3.1 Million Grant to Switch Sexes On Papayas

    A University of Illinois faculty member is leading an effort to perform sex changes on papayas. That's right, the large, yellowish, sweet fruit. Papayas, it turns out, have not just one but three sexes: male, female and hermaphrodite. The third produce the yummy fruit while the male and females are mostly useless to farmers. U. of I. plant biology professor Ray Ming secured a $3.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to change the papayas' sex to grow only plants that produce hermaphrodite offspring. Currently, farmers don't know which plants are hermaphrodite until the plants have grown and flowered,...

  • Caster Semenya withdraws from race in South Africa ("Woman" Track Winner May be Hermaphrodite)

    Athlete Caster Semenya has pulled out of her return to competitive sport amid growing fears over the psychological impact of rumours about her sex. The 18-year-old withdrew from a cross-country race in South Africa tomorrow after it was widely reported that a leaked sex test reveals she is a hermaphrodite. Her coach, Michael Seme, said she will not run because she is "not feeling well". South Africa condemned the international media reports as an invasion of the teenager's privacy and threatened a "third world war" if the women's 800m champion is disqualified from athletics.

If the allegation is backed up by the official results, the South African may find herself stripped of her gold medal and banned from racing. The IAAF, the world governing body, refused to comment on the claim last night, but earlier in the day its general secretary, Pierre Weiss, said: “It is clear that she is a...

    Gender tests on women's 800 metres champion Caster Semenya reveal that she is a hermaphrodite, according to a leak to News Limited newspapers today. Sydney's Daily Telegraph says a source close to the testing process has confirmed that Semenya has three times the level of testosterone usually found in a woman, and internal testes instead of ovaries. The International Association of Athletics Federations ordered tests on Semenya after her gold medal showing at the World Athletics Championships in Berlin. Caster Semenya (L) enjoys a groundswell of support from South Africa, with President Jacob Zuma (R) speaking out against the IAAF....

    Tests show that controversial runner Caster Semenya is a woman ...and a man! The 18-year-old South African champ has no womb or ovaries and her testosterone levels are more than three times higher than those of a normal female, according to reports. The tests, ordered by The International Association of Athletics Federations after Semenya's 800-meter victory in the World Championships, determined she's a hermaphrodite - having both male and female organs.

    HE controversy over gender row champion runner Caster Semenya deepened today — after reports claimed sex swap tests have shown she is a HERMAPHRODITE. South African gold-medallist Semenya, 18, has both male and female organs, it was claimed. And sources close to the International Association of Athletics Federations — who ordered extensive tests on the teen after her amazing 800m win at the World Athletics Championships last month — say the results mean she could still be stripped of her medal.

    No longer sure of their role, "egalitarian" men have been left straddling the gender divide and are becoming male-female hybrids, says Judith Woods. Take a long hard look at the man in your life. Yes him, the one lounging on the sofa, half-comatose in front of Midsomer Murders. Do you ever find yourself wishing he had a little more get-up-and-go, showed a bit more testosterone-fuelled drive, was – dare I say it – a touch more, you know, manly? Is he passive rather than active? Does he leave most decision-making to you? Do you feel irritated that he happily fusses...

    When Youngsville's Craig Lewis set out to hunt on an either-sex deer day at Tony's Ranch in Ringgold, he never knew it would literallly be an either-sex day. Lewis set up in his stand at 5:30 a.m. and around 7 a.m. spotted a small deer near his feeder. As he battled through the mist and the rain to spot the deer in his scope, another deer moved into sight. This one was much bigger than its companion. "When I looked up, all I could see was the body," Lewis said. "It was big, like a horse. But its head was...

That's what our "checklist for change" is all about. This is what we women do - we need our checklists. And we challenge Majority Leader Bill Frist to make the issues on our checklist priorities for the American people this year. This is by no means a complete list of priorities, but these are challenges that Congress can meet right...

    Con: Fund my sex change By Dave Wedge Wednesday, May 31, 2006 - Updated: 07:35 AM EST Not satisfied with his taxpayer-funded female hormones and laser hair removal, a convicted killer-turned-transsexual is again asking the state to pony up to complete his transformation into a woman. Robert Kosilek, who is serving life in prison for strangling his wife, was back in federal court yesterday, again demanding that the state Department of Correction pay for his sex-change operation. A similar bid was denied in 2002, and his latest attempt has infuriated Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey. “I strongly oppose using taxpayer...

The whole week of giddy anticipation and pampering -- more than $200 worth of a manicure, pedicure and hair set -- was set to culminate with the grand walk into the glam ball. But when Kevin Logan, a transgender and gay student at Gary’s West Side High School, arrived last Friday at Avalon Manor in Hobart for his prom, he was banned by Principal Diane Rouse....

There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists.

I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals.

    NEW YORK - A Manhattan judge has adjourned a court appearance by Boy George on narcotics charges until next year. The singer was said to be in England. Criminal Court Judge Patricia Nunez granted the adjournment Monday at the request of defense and prosecution lawyers. Boy George, whose real name is George O'Dowd, is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 1. The judge asked whether the case was near a resolution. Assistant District Attorney Craig Ortner said he and George's lawyer had held discussions. But Lewis Freeman, George's lawyer, said no plea negotiations had yet taken place. Freeman said...

    In the village of Novopokrovka of the Tumen region of Russia, a strange phenomenon has been discovered. A tom-cat called Barsik has been looking after kittens on his own. But that's not all. The strangest thing is that the heroic father "breast-feeds" them. When Barsik's "girlfriend" died, his owners decided to take the kittens. When the kittens were brought, Barsick accepted them and began to feed them right away. And the cat’s masters are totally sure that Barsik has milk. Veterinarians have read of these kinds of cases in special literature but they have never seen anything like that in...

    There may be all of two people in America that believe John Kerry has a coherent strategy in Iraq. There are 25 million people in Iraq who know George Bush does. But when John Kerry begins to attack the leader of one of our infant allies you have to wonder if he may not change the minds of those who still support him. Yesterday in one of the strangest turns in foreign relations, Kerry went on the attack against the newly democratically chosen leader of Iraq - Iyad Allawi. And what was the reason for this scurrilous verbal drilling? Simply...

    FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- A golfer who was born a hermaphrodite was banned from a woman's tournament because her birth certificate lists her gender as male. Instead, 40-year-old Danielle Swope will play in Saturday's qualifier for the Fort Wayne Men's City Tournament. "I have respect for the men for at least giving me the opportunity to play. The women I don't have any respect for," Swope said in The Journal Gazette on Sunday. Swope said she was born in Meridian, Miss., with both male and female reproductive organs and underwent gender-reassignment operations to become completely female. But her Mississippi birth...

    FIVE adult sisters who have spent their lives longing to “correct” their sexual identities are having operations to become men in Saudi Arabia. But the doctor carrying out the surgery insisted he was not performing sex-change operations, which are forbidden in the Islamic kingdom. “It’s a sex correction, not a sex change,” Yasser Jamal told The Times. “They were born with the appearance of females but their chromosomes are male and their gonads are male. Just their external organs showed as female.” Their condition was known as “male pseudo hermaphrodite”, he said. The term refers to someone born with male...
