    Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is expected to recommend to President Trump that transgender people can serve in the U.S. military if they can deploy overseas, a U.S. official with knowledge of the secretary’s thinking on the issue told Fox News Thursday. The official said Mattis did not want to go against recent federal court orders which ruled Trump’s proposed ban on transgender people serving in the military is unlawful.

    Defense Secretary James Mattis will provide President Trump with his recommendations on transgender troops sometime this week, the Pentagon confirmed Thursday. “The secretary will provide his recommendation to the president this week regarding transgender individuals and military service, and the president will announce his decision,” chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White told reporters at her semi-weekly briefing Thursday. In tweets over the summer, Trump announced his intentions to ban transgender people from serving in the military. He followed through with an August memo prohibiting the military from enlisting transgender people and from using funds to pay for gender transition-related surgery. The...

    An Ohio court has removed a teenaged girl from the custody of her parents because they refused to consent to dangerous and experimental medical treatment. The teenager wants to undergo irreversible treatment (hormones and probably sex-reassignment surgery) that she hopes will alleviate the depression associated with her gender dysphoria based on 1) the scientific facts that such treatment will convert her into a lifelong medical patient and probably fail to alleviate her suicidal tendencies, 2) their religious belief that created reality is unalterable, and 3) their fundamental right to direct the upbringing of their minor child, the parents said no. But...

    All scientific evidence indicates that gender identity disorders result principally from cultural causes and moreover, modern society is facilitating them, according to an analysis published Friday. Writing for the Catholic World Report, Anne Hendershott chronicles an exploding “transgender industry” illustrated by a massive surge in the number of referrals for gender-identity treatment, in some cases increasing by as much as 2800 percent in less than ten years. Western societies such as the UK, Sweden, Australia, and the USA have seen a spectacular rise in the number of persons, especially young people, seeking treatment for gender identity issues, paralleling the attention...

    Oh rejoice! It’s another victory for leftists and another nail in the coffin for the US military. This would be nail number 2,485. According to Bloomberg News Service and the Associated Press: the Pentagon is allowing transgender people to enlist in the military beginning Jan. 1, despite President Donald Trump’s opposition. Oh rejoice! Another victory for diversity! Of course our enemies like North Korea and ISIS and Iran wouldn’t know diversity if it drove over them with a bus full of lactating Airborne Rangers, but don’t tell the Pentagon that. Oh rejoice! Another victory for political correctness! The military has...

    Full Title: Pentagon prepares to accept transgender recruits beginning in January, as Trump’s ban hangs in the balanceThe U.S. military is preparing to accept transgender recruits for the first time beginning in January, the Pentagon said Wednesday, the latest signal that President Trump’s desired ban may not materialize after all. Officials are “taking steps to be prepared” to bring in the first transgender recruits on Jan. 1, as required by a federal court order issued recently, said Army Maj. David Eastburn, a Pentagon spokesman. He declined to comment further, citing open litigation, but said that the Defense Department and Justice...

    The Pentagon has met the enemy and it is itself. Like a twisted version of Dorian Gray, every time the feather merchants in the Pentagon stare at themselves in an E Ring latrine mirror, they become more PC, more sensitive, more gutless and less focused on anything to do with war fighting. Here’s some of the latest craziness emanating from what used to be the US military… News concerning Comrade Lieutenant Spenser Rapone has seemed to wither away, perhaps swept under that giant rug in the Pentagon entrance way. You remember Spenser Rapone, the West Point graduate, communist, ex-communicated Ranger...

    A federal judge in Maryland issued a second order on Tuesday blocking President Trump from implementing his ban on transgender military service. The preliminary injunction was granted to a group of active-duty transgender troops who sued Trump and top military officials in August. For now, it bars the Pentagon and Coast Guard from implementing or enforcing Trump’s August guidance aimed at rolling back the Obama administration’s policy of allowing open service and medical care for transgender troops.

    A federal judge in Maryland became the second to block the Trump administration’s proposal to oust transgender service members from the military — but went a step further than the prior ruling and halted a directive for the Pentagon to stop paying for gender-reassignment treatments. The preliminary injunction issued Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis comes after the prior ruling out of D.C. found that the policy banning transgender troops creates an “inherent inequality” that likely violates the Constitution. Judge Garbis wrote in his 53-page order that transgender military members who filed suit over the proposal had established...

In a statement issued Sunday, the actor said he doesn’t see how he can return to the acclaimed Amazon series in the wake of allegations that he sexually harassed two women.... Tambor, who has won two Emmy awards on the series for his lead role as a transgender woman who comes out late in life, has been accused of harassment by Transparent guest star Trace Lysette as well as a former assistant.

    The Pentagon confirmed Tuesday that it will pay for a soldier’s gender reassignment surgery for the first time, according to multiple reports. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement shared by a BuzzFeed News reporter that an active-duty military member received sex-reassignment surgery Tuesday in a private hospital. “Because this service member had already begun a sex-reassignment course of treatment, and the treating doctor deemed this surgery medically necessary, a waiver was approved by the director of the Defense Health Agency,” White said. “The Supplemental Health Care Program will cover this surgery in accordance with the Department’s interim guidance...

    Richard Paulson, president of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, said eight children had already been born to women after transplants. And he told a meeting in San Antonio, Texas: “There’s plenty of room to put a uterus in there. Men and women have the same blood vessels.” He said the next step would to be trials involving transgender women to help them become natural mothers. Such ops are not allowed in the UK. However, medical ethics lawyer Dr Amel Alghrani joined calls this year for the NHS to consider them. Last night critics said transgender women may want to...

    A federal court has blocked President Trump in part from changing the military's transgender policy as a case against his ban works its way in court. A judge in the U.S. district court for D.C. ruled Monday that Trump's directive changing the transgender policy back to what it was before June 2016 and banning new transgender recruits from enlisting cannot be enforced while the case works it way through the court. However, the judge denied the plaintiff's motion to block the ban on funds for gender reassignment surgery.

    DAKAR, Senegal – Gay rights activist Joseph Achille Tiedjou is worried every day that he will be harassed or arrested in Cameroon. Defending LGBT rights can be dangerous in Africa, where many countries have laws against homosexuality. But in recent years activists have stepped out of the shadows, empowered by the support of the Obama administration and the international community. Now many fear the Trump administration will undermine those gains, and that their exposure could make them more vulnerable if support fades. “I have so many worries with the new administration,” the 32-year-old Tiedjou said, pointing out Trump’s ban on...

    The British Broadcasting Corporation provided British mixed-race trans model Munroe Bergdorf a platform from which to discuss her distaste directed against the white race, as well as her opinions on “inherited” and inherent racism in white people. What did she say? Speaking on the Thursday edition of BBC’s “This Week,” Bergdorf took at swipe at all of Britain, and insinuated that the country is anything but inclusive. “What kind of country is modern Britain?” she asked. “No doubt it’s a country that likes to think of itself as inclusive, but that depends on where you’re standing.” She added, “For me,...

    Only yesterday we looked at a new law in California which could impose fines or even jail time for healthcare workers who refuse to refer to transgender patients using the pronouns which are opposite of their actual gender. At the time I wondered if that could possibly withstand a legal challenge, but that may not be their biggest problem. A new poll from the Cato Institute and YouGov examines a number of different speech issues in our country, and among others it finds that folks are not at all in favor of punishing people for refusing to indulge in unscientific...

    The Office for National Statistics in the United Kingdom has proposed that citizens should not be required to mention their gender in the next census so that transgender and other non-binary people do not feel discriminated against. The country is scheduled to hold the next national survey, which takes place every 10 years, in 2021, and if the ONS has its way, the citizens would be allowed to choose not to state their sex, The Times reports. The choice of male or female is "considered to be irrelevant, unacceptable and intrusive, particularly to trans participants, due to asking about sex...
