    President Donald Trump's administration is considering a policy that would eliminate transgender recognition by requiring individuals to be defined as male or female based on their genitalia at birth, according to a government memo obtained by the New York Times. The report has caused an uproar on social media Sunday (Oct. 21). The Department of Health and Human Services is aiming to establish a uniform definition of gender, determined “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable," the report says. “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable...

    Playing fetch on all fours might seem like an unusual activity for an adult, but one man who identifies as a dog says it has brought him closer to his husband. Tony McGinn, known as 'Tony Bark' to his friends, says he has been into animal role-play his entire life, and refers to himself as a 'human pup'. The 30-year-old, who was born female and is transgender, is supported by his husband and 'handler' Andrew who accompanies him to regular play dates with other role-players in their hometown of Los Angeles.

    A man taking down Ted Cruz lawn signs in a neighborhood in Texas is confronted by a Cruz supporter distributing them who follows him while he destroys Cruz signs and goes nuts on him. He warned the vandal, dressed in a leather jacket, that his neighbor who had a Cruz sign on his yard is also a gun owner. The vandal claimed he was too and said if he is shot over taking down Cruz yard signs "that would be great." "That's my neighbor's property, he's a gun owner," he told the vandal. "Oh, I'm a gun owner too," the...

    The trans woman UCI Masters Track World Championship cycling gold medalist is defending her win against criticism that it's unfair for her to have competed against cisgender females. Rachel McKinnon, 36, an assistant professor of philosophy at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, scooped up the top prize during the October 14 race, besting cis females Carolien van Herrikhuyzen and Jen Wagner-Assali, who took silver and bronze, respectively. The day after McKinnon's win, Wagner-Assali stirred up controversy when she replied to a tweet about the race with her own tweet suggesting that McKinnon was not deserving of winning the...

    All that is certain in life is death, taxes, and leftist celebrities speaking crudely. The latest edition of The Hollywood Reporter has a cover story celebrating British actress Claire Foy, presently playing the wife of Neil Armstrong in the Moon-landing movie First Man. Reporter Anna Peele is walking about D.C. with Foy, who is easily angered by protests around the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Perhaps bystanders are blanking on Foy because they are distracted by the hashtagged signs held up by their fellow citizens ("Kava-NOPE") or the many 18-wheelers parked on the Mall and festooned with banners...

PAULA FARIS: There are accusations but there are three women that claim that he did things to them that they didn’t want. One of them is Paula Jones…. Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey. They say that he either exposed himself to them, raped them or groped them. These are three accusations…. BEHAR:...

    A longtime foreign policy expert and conservative scholar is re-introducing herself to Washington. Giselle Donnelly is publicly acknowledging her gender identity after a career built as Thomas Donnelly, according to a report in the Washington Post. Donnelly, who spent decades hiding her gender and years in self-reflection, is now living openly as a trans woman. The 65-year-old is a resident fellow in defense and security studies at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, has been supportive of her transition. AEI executives said that Donnelly is the same person with the same principles that had always made her a...

    The bloody deranged left: A woman resists Capitol security attempts to remove her from the Kavanaugh committee hearing even as she apparently menstruates all over her clothing and chair. As cameras cut away and committee members struggled to restore order to the Senate Judiciary Committee chamber, Americans were left in the dark as to the full disgusting detail of last week’s militant leftist protests that disrupted confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. News networks had no control however over phones and personal media devices which were used to capture images like the one above, showing a screeching feminist...

    Truly, there’s nothing peaceable, nothing educated — nothing American — about those who’ve been storm-trooping in the streets, in the hallways of Congress, on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in recent days. Sorry, left, screaming at senators and dropping f-bombs about Kavanaugh may make for dramatic television coverage. But these are not American First Amendment principles on display. Rather, they’re the marks of mental illness.

    A woman accused of stabbing three babies and two adults at a suspected birth tourism site said she mistook the newborns for wolves. Yu Fen Wang, 52, told the New York Daily News from Rikers Island she was sorry for the stabbing spree at the residence in the Flushing neighborhood of Queens. Three babies — a 12-day-old, a 32-day-old and a 33-day-old — were taken to the hospital in critical condition after they were stabbed around 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 20. Wang was charged with five counts of attempted murder. “I don’t know why I did such a thing or...

    Is it just me or did you notice a huge disconnect between Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s older appearance and the baby-like quality of her voice and presentation? The juxtaposition was hard to miss. I am not trying to shame her, but she looks exceedingly older for her age than one would expect. Sometimes time isn't kind to us, but the mismatch between her inner world and her outer self is a huge discrepancy. For a woman who was by her account in a stressful situation in the hearing room, as she said “terrified,” she seemed to be all smiles and...

    Days after it was revealed that the Rev. Paul Kalchik of Avondale’s Resurrection Catholic Church burned a rainbow banner that once hung in the church, Cardinal Blase Cupich, archbishop of Chicago, has removed him from his role as head of the North Side church. “For some weeks now, I have become increasingly concerned about a number of issues at Resurrection Parish,” read a letter, signed by Cupich, to parishioners and staff at the church. “It has become clear to me that Fr. Kalchik must take time away from the parish to receive pastoral support so his needs can be assessed.”...

    A male bank director who occasionally dresses as a woman has been slammed for ‘making a mockery of women’ by accepting a place on a list of the Top 100 Women in Business. Philip Bunce, who works at Credit Suisse, claims to be ‘gender fluid’ and ‘non-binary’ and will split his time ‘fifty-fifty’ between Pippa and Philip - occasionally dressing in a wig and dress. But his appearance on the Financial Times & Her-oes Champions of Women in Business list has been branded ‘insulting’ by those who think occasionally dressing as a woman is not enough to qualify.

    FULL TITLE: Transgender Rite Aid employee who killed three people before shooting herself twice in the head in Maryland had been diagnosed with mental illness in 2016 and legally bought her gun six months ago The transgender woman who went on a shooting spree at a Rite Aid distribution center in Maryland had been diagnosed with a mental illness in 2016 and used a legally purchased gun in the deadly rampage. Snochia Moseley, 26, shot dead three people and then herself at the Enterprise Business Park in Aberdeen shortly after 9am Thursday. Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler revealed on Friday...

    Workers say they endured horrifying moments of wild gunfire and terror as a woman working a temporary job at a drugstore warehouse in Maryland fired on colleagues with a handgun, killing three people before fatally shooting herself, according to authorities. CBS News' Mola Lenghi reports that witnesses say the shooting followed an argument Thursday morning between the suspect and another employee. The shooting sent survivors screaming and running in all directions from the Rite Aid distribution center in northeastern Maryland. Others nearby helped the wounded, and one person tied blood-soaked jeans around an injured man's leg trying to stanch the...

    Authorities in Harford County were still trying to determine late Thursday why Snochia Moseley opened fire at the Rite Aid warehouse where she had taken a temporary job, killing three employees and fatally wounding herself. Authorities have not identified the victims. [Snip] Authorities and court records identified Moseley as female, as did a Facebook profile in her name. But in Facebook messages Coley shared with The Baltimore Sun, Moseley described herself as transgender, although it was not clear whether Moseley preferred to be addressed using masculine or feminine pronouns. In messages that the friend said were sent in December 2016,...

    The South China Morning Post ^ | September 17, 2018 | Crystal Tai and Marie Juhyun Lee
    Last weekend, Incheon, South Korea’s second-biggest port city, held its first-ever gay pride parade. Things took a violent turn, however, as more than 1,000 anti-gay protesters, including Christian groups, verbally and physically pushed back the 300 parade participants. The event was expected to last 20 minutes, but took hours due to the conflict. Since 2003, homosexuality has no longer been classified as “harmful and obscene” in South Korea, but discrimination against the community remains widespread. While the country’s national human rights commission act states that individuals cannot be discriminated against on the basis of their sexual orientation, members of the...

    The documentary film RBG, in theaters May 4, portrays Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a hard-nosed workaholic with more than a few wins for women's rights under her jabot. But it also highlights, rather pointedly, her influence on The Youths. In several scenes, fawning would-be attorneys run up to her to ask for her autograph or take a selfie. The adoration has extended to pop culture, and the film makes a mountain out of things the sober Supreme Court Justice hasn't historically paid a whole lot of attention to: memes (obviously, Notorious RBG), SNL, and most certainly not tattoos. While flattered...

    Transgender adolescents are far more likely to attempt suicide than teens whose identity matches their sex assigned at birth, and trans male youth are especially at risk, a U.S. study suggests. Roughly half of transgender teens who identify as male but were assigned a female gender at birth have attempted suicide at least once, the study found. And 42 percent of adolescents who don’t identify exclusively as male or female have at least one prior suicide attempt. About 30 percent of trans female teens - who identify as female but have birth certificates that label them as male - have...

    One of the most celebrated groups in the mainstream media is transgendered people or people who suffer from gender dysphoria. This lead to transgenderism becoming a fad that had many people claiming to be transgendered, especially among the young. However, data now shows that those young people who do embrace a life of transgenderism seem to have abnormally high suicide rates. ..... Female to male adolescents reported the highest rate of attempted suicide (50.8%), followed by adolescents who identified as not exclusively male or female (41.8%), male to female adolescents (29.9%), questioning adolescents (27.9%). .....
