    This past week the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) pulled all championship events out of North Carolina for the 2016-2017 season simply because that state passed a law, known as HB 2, which requires men and women to use the restroom or locker room corresponding to the gender on their birth certificate. In essence, the North Carolina legislature said men use the men's room and ladies use the ladies room. By doing this, North Carolina was simply protecting women and children from sexual predators and voyeurs. Along with punishing North Carolina, the NCAA is forcing all potential championship host sites...

    Target is using deceptive language to make Americans think it has their best interests at heart. But Target has not changed this dangerous policy The boycott of Target stores led by those outraged that the retail chain encourages men who “identify” as women to use women’s restrooms is working—but victory is not yet complete. Business Insider reports: The boycott started in April after Target announced that it would welcome transgender customers to use any bathroom or fitting room that matched their gender identity. The announcement triggered an immediate backlash. Critics said the policy opened the door for sexual predators to...

    A child psychiatrist is shedding light on the issue of transgenderism after a Texas mother asked a school to adopt a transgender bathroom policy to accommodate her kindergartener. EAGNews reports the Pearland Independent School District is refusing to comply with a mother's request this month to change its policy even though she says her transgender child is so distraught he prays to be taken to heaven. Psychiatrist Dr. Allan Josephson of the University of Louisville's Bingham Clinic says a child that age cannot grasp the concept of transgenderism.

    The University of Missouri (MU) is renaming its “Unisex” restrooms on campus in response to complaints that the current label isn’t inclusive. Henceforth, restrooms intended for use by both men and women will simply be labeled “toilet.” The change is apparently meant to accommodate student complaints that the “unisex” label, intended to encompass everybody, is actually exclusionary and hurtful. “Unisex is just such an uncomfortable and outdated word,” MU student Sterling Waldman told the Columbia Missourian. The word, Waldman said, excludes people who identify as neither male nor female. Waldman serves as the social justice chair in MU’s student senate,...

BuzzFeed News reported Monday that the regulation will be posted in the Federal Register at some point this week, opening up thousands of federally operated restrooms to transgender people who wish to use the facilities corresponding with their gender identity rather than biological sex. The rule will apply to roughly 9,200 properties operated by the General Services Administration and will not be limited to employees.

They also want the Army to drop charges stemming from her July 5 suicide attempt. In a statement alerting the media to the Wednesday event, the head of a group supporting Manning said that the military is mistreating the jailed soldier formerly known as Bradley Manning.

    Transgender people are not mentally ill. Being transgender is not a mental disorder. And anyone who argues otherwise is directly contradicting current medical consensus. These lines of anti-transgender argumentation were already common before the March passage of North Carolina’s HB 2, which requires transgender people to use public bathrooms matching their birth certificates. For instance, when Caitlyn Jenner came out last year, conservative blogger Matt Walsh called her a “mentally ill cross-dresser” on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze. A long list of right-wing media outlets and pundits have echoed the “mental illness” language: The Federalist, Breitbart, TownHall, Rush Limbaugh, the list...

After getting breast cancer in late 2014, she had her breasts amputated to create a more masculine appearance and changed her name to Leo. Once she returned from medical school in May, 2015, Soell...

    Hillary Clinton (pending the conclusion of the criminal investigations about her emails and the Clinton Foundation which linger on) may well be the Democratic nominee. As it is perfectly clear that Trump will win the Republican nomination the #NeverTrump bleats are beginning to fade. Many have realized that their arguments are ridiculous, and are more related to the diminution of their power to affect opinion than they are to substance. This week, as well, the administration gets its failures in foreign and domestic policy off the front pages as the loony press attempts to justify his public school unisex bathroom...

    With a few strokes of a keyboard, President Obama is seeking to change the daily experience of thousands upon thousands of schoolchildren by ordering all U.S. schools to allow transgender students access to the restroom of their choice. He sent a letter stating his progressive decree to the nation’s schools Friday morning — threatening schools not just with legislation but with a loss of funding if they fail to comply. The New York Times had an early copy of the letter, from which it excerpted the following, which essentially bans the one-stall bathroom option: “A school may not require transgender...

    In the hit 1970’s comedy, MASH, Corporal Max Klinger was a street savvy enlisted man from Toledo, Ohio, who had one goal; to return home in one piece with a Section 8 Psycho Discharge, courtesy of Army psychiatrists. Klinger’s modus operandi was to pose as a woman, outfitted in the latest 1950’s fashions he had purchased from the Spiegel Catalog. Klinger was not really transgender or transsexual, he was just a guy who wanted OUT, out of the Army. The hilarity ensued as he came up with scheme after scheme to escape the lean green machine with a Section 8,...

    BRISTOL, Conn. — ESPN announced that it has fired network analyst and former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling following his comments on Facebook about transgender people. In a statement released Wednesday, ESPN said "Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated."

To the restroom with your daughter or else you're a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!!!" Schilling added...

    First no Bruce Springsteen concert, now no XHamster.com porn. The popular pornography site has blocked North Carolina IP addresses since 12:30 p.m. Monday, according to a report in the Huffington Post, in order to punish the state’s porn hounds over the bathroom bill. North Carolinians seeking to indulge now get a black screen, which the company plans to replace with a petition demanding the repeal of HB2, the bill that requires segregated public facilities, such as bathrooms and locker rooms, to divide according to biological sex not gender identity.

    Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard shocked conservatives Tuesday when he vetoed legislation that would have prohibited students in South Dakota public schools from using opposite-sex restrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities. The decision is a boon for transgender advocates who lobbied the governor to reject the bill, arguing it was discriminatory and would have harmed the emotional well-being of transgender students. Proponents of the legislation contended it’s inappropriate to have adolescent boys and girls showering and changing in the same room. “Do you feel it appropriate for a 13-year-old girl to be exposed to the anatomy of a boy? Or for...
