    A public university in the United Kingdom has refused to allow a researcher to look into cases of people who regretted having gender reassignment surgery and transitioned back to living as their birth sex.

    Hundreds of parents packed a Rocklin charter school district board meeting Monday night to voice their opinion about teaching gender identity in class. The discussion was sparked after a kindergarten teacher read a book to the class about a transgender girl's transition. The school board heard more than three hours of comment before they voted late Monday to not to change their current literature policy, which allows the inclusion of transgender characters, and "endeavor" to notify parents about controversial topics.

    NANTUCKET, Mass. – Chelsea Manning told a crowd at a “creative thinkers” conference in Nantucket on Sunday that she’s not an “American traitor” as her critics have claimed and she did what she thought was the right thing to do. Manning attended the annual conference for The Nantucket Project in Massachusetts. The Nantucket Project is a venture founded to bring together creative thinkers to uncover the ideas that matter most. Organizers say about 600 people attended. This was one of Manning’s first public appearances since being released from a military prison in May. The Associated Press was the only media...

    FULL TITLE: Transgender Children Now Able to Physically Transform Bodies at Younger Ages Under New Medical Guidelines New clinical guidelines, released Wednesday, are expected to reshape medical care for transgender children. The recommendations, written by an international medical team, ease previous restrictions so that children under 16 years old can begin hormone therapy in order to physically transform their bodies. The guidelines, which are being updated for the first time since 2009, are expected to carry wide influence among pediatricians across the globe. The Endocrine Society, which boasts the “largest global membership” in the field of endocrinology, released the guidelines....

    Radical feminists aspire to revolutionize society in three ways. First, they seek to eliminate the different ways boys and girls are socialized, so that they will come to have very similar characters and temperaments. Second, they seek to cultivate financial and emotional independence of women and children from the family. Third, they hope to erase sexual taboos, embracing new ways for individuals to achieve sexual satisfaction outside of monogamous, procreative marriage. Winning public sanction for same-sex marriage was the last great feminist victory. Same-sex marriage undermined sex roles within marriage. It put children ever more outside the purpose of marriage....

    Facing backlash from high-ranking current and former CIA officials, the Dean of the Kennedy School of Government withdrew an invitation for Chelsea Manning to serve as a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics in late-night reversal Friday. “I now think that designating Chelsea Manning as a Visiting Fellow was a mistake, for which I accept responsibility,” Kennedy School Dean Douglas W. Elmendorf wrote in a statement posted to the school’s website shortly after midnight. The school withdrew the invitation to Manning—a transgender activist and former U.S. Army soldier who was imprisoned after disclosing over 700,000 classified government documents— after...

    The University of Tours in central-west France has become the first in the country to offer gender-neutral toilets, in an effort to make transgender students feel more comfortable. As well as the new toilets, the university has also announced that starting from this year, it will recognize transgender students’ preferred names on their student ID cards, university email addresses, and on class registers. In France, legal name changes are often a long and complex process, which means many transgender students have a legal name which does not match their gender identity or outward appearance. The decision comes a year after...

    No sooner had the Nashville Statement on biblical sexuality been issued then we began to hear a common refrain from the left. “This is another sign that the religious right is dying! This statement represents the last gasp of the old, antiquated guard! It’s time to say good bye and good riddance! Let’s welcome the new thing the Spirit is doing!”In reality, it is the religious left that is dying, while those who uphold Scripture are seeing blessing and increase around the globe. Before I back up this statement, here’s what some “progressive” Christian leaders are saying.Writing for the Huffington...

    Over the course of the last few months, whenever I write or tweet anything, on any topic, I usually receive a caustic social media response about my position on transgenderism. These trolls post links to my tweets about the subject and screenshots, as if showing me my own recent opinion is some sort of gotcha. These individuals even send tweets to my husband and employers, perhaps in hope that they will use their power over me to get my opinion in check with The Approved Position.One Twitter follower who “favorited” a tweet of mine about my view on transgenderism...

    Until last year, Ninotska Love would have been barred from attending Wellesley College. She’s an accomplished student who has persevered through hardship, but under longstanding rules, the college would have rejected her because she was assigned at birth as a boy. Now the rules have changed. This week, Love will become one of the first transgender women to attend Wellesley in the school’s 147-year history. “For me to be accepted to one of the best colleges for women in the nation, it is a big validation of the person that I have become. At first I couldn’t believe it,” said...

    Piers Morgan clashed with sacked L'Oreal transgender model Munroe Bergdorf on Good Morning Britain over her statement that 'all white people are racist'. Morgan marked his return to the show with a fiery interview opposite Bergdorf, who made the headlines last week after she was fired by L'Oreal Paris for a lengthy Facebook rant. During the post she fumed: 'Honestly I don't have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people.' Morgan took the model to task over the comments and said they were 'deeply offensive' and a 'load of rubbish'. Bergdorf...

    Someone call Child Protective Services. We have yet another example of moonbat child abuse: Hayley McLean took to her parenting blog, Sparkles and Stretchmarks, to voice her outrage that Disneyland Paris initially told her that “it is not possible to book Princess for a Day for a boy,” when she asked about booking the activity for her 3-year-old boy, Noah. Young Noah enjoys dressing up as Disney princesses, especially Elsa from the critically acclaimed film Frozen. His mother wanted to give him an early Christmas present by taking him to the nearby Disneyland Hotel to enjoy the Princess for a...

    THE road to sex reassignment covers some very difficult terrain, ranging from hormone treatment and possibly surgery, to social stigma and discrimination. But in many European countries those wanting to have the reassignment legally recognised face extra challenges. Citizens of Malta, Ireland, Denmark and Norway can simply tell authorities their decision. Elsewhere the process requires judicial consent or even the diagnosis of a mental disorder. Switzerland, Greece and 18 other, mostly eastern European, countries have a final hurdle: sterilisation. Why is this the case? The requirement for sterilisation has dark echoes of eugenics. In the early 1970s Sweden became the...

    This morning, L’Oréal Paris ended its relationship with Munroe Bergdorf, the brand’s first trans model, after she made controversial remarks about racism among whites. Bergdorf stated that the "success" of white people "is built on the backs, blood and death of people of color." “Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people,” Bergdorf, 30, reportedly wrote in a Facebook post that has since been removed. “Because most of ya’ll don’t even realize or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on...

    A sailor, who felt he was "a woman trapped in a man's body", is facing termination from serving with the armed forces, after the Navy recommended to the defence ministry that "she" be discharged from service. The sailor in question had recently undergone sex change surgery or gender reassignment, which prompted the Indian Navy to take this extreme measure. Confronted with the first-ever such case when the sailor returned to her INS Eksila base in Visakhapatnam after quietly undergoing the surgery in Mumbai late last year, the Navy wants her to be discharged under the SNLR (service no longer required)...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) says that President Donald Trump's decision to ban transgenders from the U.S. military will "make America less safe." "President Trump just issued an official memo that insults the courage and sacrifices being made by thousands of transgender troops, and he once again proved that he cares more about extreme ideology than military readiness," Warren said in a statement released on Friday after the president sent an official memorandum to the Defense Department to implement the ban. "The President can pretend this decision is about military effectiveness, but it isn't," said Warren. "Banning individuals from serving based...

    Defense Secretary James Mattis says transgender troops will be allowed to continue serving in the military while the Pentagon studies the issue. This comes after President Trump reversed an Obama-era policy that would allow trans-soldiers to serve. In a statement the Defense Secretary said once the panel reports its recommendations and he meets with the Homeland Security Secretary, he wll provide his advice to the president. This will allow the Trump administration to decide how to respond to the president’s executive order. He says in the meantime, the policy will remain law.
