    NEW YORK (AP) — Target Corp. cut its profit forecast and a key sales outlook Wednesday as it saw fewer customers in its stores and acknowledged it didn't push the second part of its "Expect More, Pay Less" slogan. The Minneapolis-based discounter's second-quarter net income fell nearly 10 percent, though that was better than what most had expected. Sales at stores open at least a year fell 1.1 percent, reversing seven straight quarters of gains. Its main competitor, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., reports results Thursday. Target's shares fell $4.74, or 6 percent, to $70.74 in afternoon trading.

    The Family Policy Institute of Washington tried an experiment on gender ideology at a college campus, and came back with surprising results. In a video published last week, the Institute shows journalist Joseph Backholm visiting the University of Washington campus and asking a number of students questions about gender and self-identity. Their answers reveal how deeply ingrained gender ideology has become in the mindset of today's college students. Starting with the simple question, "If I told you that I was a woman, what would you say?" Backholm received the almost unanimous response that he'd be accepted as a woman. He...

Speaking at a town hall event on NBC's "Today" Thursday, Trump was asked about North Carolina's so-called "bathroom law," which, among other things, requires transgender people to use bathrooms corresponding to the gender on their birth certificate in state government buildings as well as public schools and universities. Trump said the law had caused unnecessary strife for the state, which he...

    A study with 32 transgender children, ages 5 to 12, indicates that the gender identity of these children is deeply held and is not the result of confusion about gender identity or pretense. The study, led by psychological scientist Kristina Olson of the University of Washington, is one of the first to explore gender identity in transgender children using implicit measures that operate outside conscious awareness and are, therefore, less susceptible to modification than self-report measures.

As a boy growing up in Patchogue, LI, Smith knew early on that something was amiss. But there was no Internet to tell her...

    A federal appeals court has ruled today that transsexual wife-killer Michelle Kosilek's push for a sex-change operation has been denied. "The district court erred and that the care provided to Kosilek by the DOC does not violate the Eighth Amendment. We therefore reverse the district court's grant of injunctive relief, and we remand with instructions to dismiss the case," the court ruled. A federal judge ruled in 2012 that Kosilek, 65, needed the surgery for gender identity disorder, but state prison officials challenged the ruling. Kosilek, who was born Robert Kosilek, is serving life in an all-male prison for killing...

She also told police that she intentionally had the operation, which she underwent in 2000, "as a permanent way to control violence." Perry is being held on $1 million bond in...

While Rankin, an avowed feminist, likes the sloganeering that pro-life activists hate women, equal rights, and the color pink, she doesn't believe it goes far enough. “Abortion rights activists have overlooked and dismissed a very important reality," she writes....

But they told some private insurance companies they must pay for a transgender person’s hormone therapy, breast reduction, cancer screening or any other procedure deemed medically necessary if they cover it for patients who aren’t transgender. The changes apply to companies insuring about a third of Oregonians and about 7 percent of Californians, but not to people on Medicare and Medicaid or to the majority of Californians...

    Children as young as 12 are to be allowed drugs to block puberty while they decide whether to have a sex change, it has been revealed. The monthly injection suspends the onset of adulthood so that young people confused about their gender can be sure of any decision before they take on too many masculine or feminine features. Supporters say that the "window" prevents a great deal of mental and physical anguish caused by the maturing of sex organs, facial hair growth and changes in the voice. But critics argue it only prolongs the agony and can prevent people "growing...

    In the scandal involving the theft and release of classified military information that could cost the lives of U.S. military personnel, the British Telegraph newspaper is reporting that the American soldier at the center of the scandal was "openly homosexual" and apparently held a grudge against the U.S. because of the military's anti-gay policy. In another bizarre twist, reliable reports suggest that Private First Class Bradley Manning, the U.S. Army Intelligence analyst accused of leaking the classified information to the website, was not only a homosexual but was considering a sex change. Manning was arrested at the end of...

    Census-takers may soon have to add a new check box for gender. And the thanks for the confusion goes to Norrie May-Welby of Australia, who has passed as a man — and a woman — and is now the first person legally designated neither, London's Telegraph reports. The genderless 48-year-old was born male in Scotland, and moved Down Under at age 7. Twenty-one years later, May-Welby underwent a sex change, but really wasn't happy living life as a woman either, according to Which left neuter, naturally — and that seemed to fit. "The concepts of man or woman don't...

The Commerce website now lists an "Amanda Simpson" in its directory along with a Bureau of Industry and Security e-mail address. The directory does not list a phone number for "Amanda." The Obama administration has not officially announced the appointment, and...

    A Los Angeles sportswriter who stunned readers with the announcement that he was a transsexual - and then later abandoned his sex change plans - has committed suicide. Los Angeles Times veteran Mike Penner, 52, was found dead at his home, the paper reported Saturday. In 2007, Penner made headlines around the world by announcing in a column for the paper that he planned to live life as a woman named Christine Daniels. "Today I leave for a few weeks' vacation, and when I return, I will come back in yet another incarnation. As Christine," he wrote.
