    The College Fix ^ | June 5, 2016 | Staff
    Some female high school runners are questioning the fairness of the Alaska state track meet results after a biological male made it to the finals in the 100 meter and 200 meter dashes. Haines High School senior Nattaphon Wangyot, an immigrant from Thailand, was born male but identifies as female. She was allowed to compete on girls’ teams because the Alaska School Activities Association allows individual districts to decide how to handle transgender athletes on teams. Haines’ policy states “For the purposes of gender identification for interscholastic activities, the district will consider the gender identity based on the student’s consistent...

    Don’t mess with my kids. That’s the message two North Carolina moms want the Obama Administration to hear. They are part of the nonprofit organization North Carolinians for Privacy, which – with the help of Alliance Defending Freedom – is suing the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the U.S. Department of Education (DOE). The lawsuit asks for the court to make clear that students don’t have to give up their right to bodily privacy in order to get an education. “My children should not, being in public school, have to choose between their right to privacy and their protection,...

    EDITOR’S NOTE: With the U.S. economy on life support, record numbers of illegal aliens invading the nation, and ISIS targeting the American homeland with mass-casualty attacks, the Obama administration has made transgender rights – which Vice President Joe Biden calls “the civil rights issue of our time” – an urgent focus of its final months. However, spurred on by reports of an 8-year-old girl being strangled unconscious by a 33-year-old man in a girls’ restroom Friday, Americans are pushing back. Obama’s just-announced school edict mandating transgender bathrooms for the entire nation’s children is being met with fierce resistance. Target Corporation’s...

    Target’s stock price and its favorability among shoppers are crashing as the public rebukes the retail giant for ignoring their vigorous protest against mixed-sex changing rooms and bathrooms. The company’s stock was two cents shy of $84 on August 19, when it revealed it would not allow shoppers to use single-sex bathrooms or changing rooms. Instead, all rooms were opened up to anyone claiming to be of either sex. As of 4.00 p.m. Friday, the stock had dropped almost $4.50, down to $79.50. That’s a huge loss of 5 percent in stock value, costing shareholders roughly $2.5 billion in company...

    Last week, Target Corp. announced that it will continue to allow transgender customers and employees to use the bathrooms and fitting rooms of their preference, regardless of their biological sex. A statement released on Target’s corporate website Tuesday came amid a nationwide legal dispute over whether transgender people should receive special protection under the country’s civil rights provisions. Since that announcement, more than 500,000 people have signed an online pledge to boycott Target. A description of the pledge, created by the American Family Association, states several concerns of religious and social conservatives who believe that providing such accommodations for transgender...
  • Poll: Trump winning big in California (Trump 41%, Cruz 23%, Kasich 21%)

    Ted Cruz called California "the big enchilada” on Wednesday and said it would be the state that ultimately decides the Republican nomination. But a new poll from Capitol Weekly/Sextant Strategies shows Donald Trump in a dominant position across the state. The results, provided to POLITICO, show Trump leading statewide with 41 percent of the vote and Cruz trailing far behind with 23 percent. John Kasich is in third with 21 percent, and 15 percent of Republicans said they remain undecided. California is worth 172 delegates when it votes on June 7 — with the winner of each of the state’s...

    Before we begin debunking, let’s start with the obvious: It was undoubtedly a good night for Trump and unsurprisingly so, as NR’s Henry Olsen predicted on election eve. Trump looks to have taken 90 delegates and 60 percent of the vote, somewhat better than projections, although most election-eve forecasts had him taking at least 85 or so of New York’s 95 delegates (Olsen had him pegged for 87). But despite his victory, Trump got only a very modest bump from New York last night. And despite the breathless TV and print commentary from our New York–centered media, he still faces...

    New York's Democratic governor banned state travel to North Carolina this week, citing its residents' supposed lack of equal protection under the law, weeks after he announced efforts to facilitate travel from New York to Cuba, which is ruled by a repressive communist dictatorship that routinely imprisons political dissenters. "In New York, we believe that all people—regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation—deserve the same rights and protections under the law," said Gov. Andrew Cuomo in announcing a ban on "non-essential" state travel to North Carolina. The move came in response to a new North Carolina law that restricts...

    Barely two weeks since its debut, E!’s “I Am Cait” is already in serious trouble. While tabloid interest in and social media chatter about Caitlyn Jenner may remain strong, actual viewer numbers are down — way down! — suggesting that TV’s great transgender hope might actually be a dud on arrival. The problem with “I Am Cait” isn’t its lack of ambition. If anything, the show suffers from an overdose of the stuff. In less than 60 minutes of screen time, “Cait” shifts from “Real Housewives”-type fluff to Lifetime-like melodrama to “60 Minutes”-style seriousness. There are makeup shots and bikini...

There will be many, but let’s talk about the most ironic losers: women. Neither ideology respects true femininity and the beauty of womanhood. Both want to empty it of its gift and uniqueness. Both have created a caricature of woman. Both exploit what they find useful about the female body and shun the rest. Both have reduced womanhood to only the parts that serve their agenda. Both the modern, perpetually-contracepting woman and the transgender “woman” are sterile....

The reason school officials have prevented Grimm from using facilities reserved for boys on campus is because Grimm was born a girl and by all accounts remains a girl.

    A divided federal appeals court on Tuesday overturned a ruling ordering Massachusetts prison officials to provide taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery for an inmate convicted of murder.

    New government guidance has LGBT rights advocates "thrilled" In one short paragraph of a 34-page memo released on Dec. 1, the Department of Education articulated a clear stance on gender identity, saying transgender students in public schools should be enrolled in single-sex classes that align with how they live their lives day-to-day. “We’re thrilled,” says Shannon Minter, the legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights. “It’s so critical to the health and well-being of those students, and it’s going to be so helpful to have that guidance in writing so that schools understand what their obligations are.” The...

    This week, the Vatican has hosted an international colloquium called Humanum dedicated to “the complementarity of man and woman” and the importance of marriage. Not just limited to Catholics, the conference has included people from many different faiths, including a litany of the United States’ anti-LGBT conservatives. The messages of Humanum have sounded mostly like excerpts from Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, asserting various archaic gender stereotypes as evidence that men and women are uniquely designed to be together — and that no other relationship should ever be considered a marriage. For example, Russell Moore, media-savvy...

    Transgender people who regret their sex changes typically get buried in venom rather than loved. Everyone has regrets. Some of us have big regrets. Most everyone has some place to go to get help dealing with them. Except for, say, a guy who had sex-change surgery and now would like to have his penis back. (The one God gave him.) Our culture seems pretty much “to each his own” when it comes to elective bodily mutilation and the regret thereof. And there’s a lot of regret out there. According to a British poll, a whopping 65 percent of those who’ve...

    Last week, anti-LGBTQ group the Pacific Justice Institute started a conservative media firestorm with its claim that a transgender teenager in Colorado was “harassing” her classmates in the girls’ bathroom. The allegations, after being picked up by Fox News and other right-wing media outlets, were quickly debunked by a transgender advocacy group that reached out to the school’s superintendent, who explained that no harassment had occurred. In reality, the complaint stemmed from one area mother who objected to the school’s policy allowing transgender students to use facilities that correspond to their gender identity. After having its lie exposed, PJI issued...

    A high-profile case of a Belgian transsexual who chose to be killed by medical euthanasia after a sex-change operation turned him into a "monster" has highlighted the soaring number of people in the region electing to die this way – and has raised fresh questions over the controversial practice. Nathan Verhelst, born Nancy, gave an interview to a local newspaper hours before his death this week citing his "unbearable psychological suffering" – rather than a terminal or degenerative physical illness – as his reason for dying voluntarily. "When I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself. My new...

The 49-year-old was arrested Monday by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office on larceny and possession of drug paraphernalia charges. It was his 50th arrest since 1991, Florida Department of Law Enforcement records show.
