    OANN ^ | 21 Oct 2018
    Democrat New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is now being accused of sexual assault by a man. On Saturday, an anonymous man released a detailed four page document on Twitter, claiming the incident happened when Booker visited his workplace back in 2014. He claims Booker followed him to the bathroom, touched him inappropriately, and approached him for oral sex. The man says he reached out to two lawyers earlier this month disclosing his name, date, location, corroborating evidence, and two possible hearsay witnesses. The reported victim also said watching Booker’s defense of alleged sexual assault victims was “laughably ironic, jarringly cringe-worthy,...
  • Anatomy Does Not Determine Gender, Experts Say

    Anatomy Does Not Determine Gender, Experts Say By Denise Grady Oct. 22, 2018 Defining gender as a condition determined strictly by a person’s genitals is based on a notion that doctors and scientists abandoned long ago as oversimplified and often medically meaningless. Researchers who have studied gender issues and provided health care to people who do not fit the typical M/F pigeonholes said that the Trump administration’s latest plan to define gender goes beyond the limits of scientific knowledge. “The idea that a person’s sex is determined by their anatomy at birth is not true, and we’ve known that it’s...

    Reality star and former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner is calling out President Trump after reports that the administration is considering narrowing the legal definition of gender. Jenner, a prominent transgender figure, tweeted an image with the repeated phrase “Trans people won’t be erased,” and tagged Trump. The New York Times reported Sunday that the Trump administration is weighing a motion that would require individuals to identify as male or female based on their genitalia at birth. The move would effectively exclude transgender and nonbinary people from the government’s legal definition of gender and rollback protections for more than a million Americans....

    Over at the Institute for Family Studies, Nicholas Wolfinger, a sociologist at the University of Utah, has found that Americans who have only ever slept with their spouses are most likely to report being in a “very happy” marriage. Meanwhile, the lowest odds of marital happiness—about 13 percentage points lower than the one-partner women—belong to women who have had six to 10 sexual partners in their lives. For men, there’s still a dip in marital satisfaction after one partner, but it’s never as low as it gets for women,... (Skip) In an earlier analysis, Wolfinger found that women with zero...

Lawyers for Aaron and Melissa Klein, the former owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, filed a petition Monday asking the high court to overturn the state's order to pay $135,000 in emotional damages to the couple they turned away.

    VATICAN CITY, Italy, October 19, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis' Vatican invited another public relations debacle Wednesday when photos came out in Vatican News of the Pope wearing what many thought to be a "Pride" cross decorated in the colors of the rainbow. The rainbow cross promptly garnered reaction on social media as a nudge-and-a-wink endorsement of the LGBT movement. There exists an explanation for a non-LGBT origin of the rainbow cross, and its colors don’t precisely resemble those of the gay “pride” rainbows used by the LGBT movement. Young people from Panama and some Latin American Synod fathers presented...

    Dr. Miroslav Djordjevic says more people, particularly transgender women over 30, are asking for reversal surgery, yet their regrets remain taboo Five years ago, Professor Miroslav Djordjevic, the world-leading genital reconstructive surgeon, received a patient at his Belgrade clinic. It was a transgender patient who had surgery at a different clinic to remove male genitalia – and had since changed their mind. That was the first time Djordjevic had ever been contacted to perform a so-called “reversal” surgery. Over the next six months, another six people also approached him, similarly wanting to reverse their procedures. They came from countries all...

    New York Times ^ | October 22, 2018 | Sarah Mervosh and Christine Hauser
    L.G.B.T. activists mobilized a fast and fierce campaign that included a protest outside the White House on Monday to say transgender people cannot be expunged from society, in response to an unreleased Trump administration memo that proposes a strict definition of gender based on a person’s genitalia at birth. The existence of the draft memo, the administration’s latest effort to roll back the recognition and protection of transgender people under federal civil rights law, was reported by The New York Times on Sunday morning. Within hours, the hashtag #WontBeErased circulated on social media. By Sunday evening, a rally for transgender...

    The administration is proposing to conform the law to the truth. Today I learned something truly new. I’d lived my life on this earth almost 49 years before I understood that federal anti-discrimination law defines human existence. Changing that law can thus literally “negate the humanity of people.” At least that’s what I’m learning in response to the news that the Trump administration is considering rolling back the Obama administration’s lawless expansion of Title IX, the federal civil-rights statute banning sex discrimination in federally funded education programs. At issue is the definition of the word “sex.” In April 2014, the...

    Our friend David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon listened to a typically one-sided hour of National Public Radio on climate change on Tuesday and wrote an article titled "NPR: How Do We Talk to the Dangerous Idiots Who Disagree With Us?" The national talk show 1A tweeted out this summation: "Climate change is a fundamental threat. The science is clear and scientists around the world agree that this a man-made problem. What, if anything, can be done to win over climate skeptics?" Rutz summarized it this way: "I listened to a remarkable bit of self-parody on National Public Radio...

    Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly leads Republican challenger Mike Braun by a single percentage point in polling results released Monday by the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics at Purdue University Fort Wayne. Donnelly is favored by 41 percent of likely voters, Braun by 40 percent and Libertarian Lucy Brenton by 8 percent, with 11 percent of respondents undecided. The poll of 816 likely voters was conducted Oct. 12 through 16 by SurveyUSA and has a 4.6 percent credibility interval, akin to margin of sampling error.

  • Poll: GOP Vermont governor has 14-point lead on Dem challenger

    Vermont's Republican governor holds a 14-point lead over his Democratic challenger in the race with roughly two weeks to go until Election Day, according to a new poll. A VPR-Vermont PBS poll released Monday showed 42 percent of respondents support Gov. Phil Scott (R) for another term, while 28 percent back Democrat Christine Hallquist, who earlier this year became the first transgender candidate to win a major party's nomination for governor. Hallquist is a former chief executive of the Vermont Electric Cooperative. ADVERTISEMENT Scott is bolstered by a strong approval rating. The poll found 45 percent of respondents approve of...

    Actress Kristen Bell, who played the voice of Anna in Disney’s “Frozen,” argued there are plots points in the 1930s classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” that could be problematic for young children. Mrs. Bell, who has two young daughters with her husband, actor Dax Shepard, told Parents magazine that she points out those problems every time she reads the book with her children. “Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?” she said she asks her daughters. “Because you can not kiss someone if they’re sleeping!” Ms. Bell, who is working...

    Actress Kristen Bell raises controversial questions about Snow White, consent, and it's all tied into the #MeToo movement. She may have forgotten that it's just a movie. When it's 2018 and nothing surprises you anymore, then it's no wonder a 38-year-old Kristen Bell is asking kids if they think it's weird that Snow White gets kissed in her sleep. Nevermind the fact that it's a fictional children's movie that kids love, but that doesn't matter. Bell just wants to be a nuisance and make people roll their eyes. Her bizarre point was made on the Parents.com website. To answer her...

    Although Kristen Bell absolutely loves reading to her kids before bed, she admits she's sometimes skeptical about the "lessons" her girls — 3-year-old Delta and 5-year-old Lincoln — are learning from Disney princesses. "[Story time is] truly my favorite part of the day," Kristen told Parents. "I glance away from the book and see their brains working while we're all cuddled up like meerkats." The 38-year-old actress says that despite playing Anna in Frozen, she has reservations about some of the messages in the older princess stories. This is a modal window.The media could not be loaded, either because the...

    Kristen Bell has made a thinly-veiled swipe at Melania Trump in her opening speech at the SAG Awards. Referencing how the show was using all-female hosts - and that she was the first on stage - Bell took an opportunity to mock the First Lady's campaign to stop cyber bullying. 'I think my first initiative as First Lady will be cyber-bullying, because I have yet to see any progress made on that problem quite yet.'

    I’m finding it kind of hard to keep up with all the rules about sex. On the one hand, it seems like we’re all supposed to be free to have sex with whomever we want, whenever we want, however we want (regardless of whether either party is married, knows one another, or intends to call in the morning). On the other hand, in order to actually have sex, we’re apparently required to obtain written consent — witnessed by a lawyer and signed in triplicate — or else it’s rape. So, are we having all the sex? Or aren’t we?It occurs...

    President Donald Trump's administration is considering a policy that would eliminate transgender recognition by requiring individuals to be defined as male or female based on their genitalia at birth, according to a government memo obtained by the New York Times. The report has caused an uproar on social media Sunday (Oct. 21). The Department of Health and Human Services is aiming to establish a uniform definition of gender, determined “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable," the report says. “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable...
