    Shortened title. Full title: Journalist Starts GoFundMe For Transgender Teen Who Shut Down A Whole School Over Bathroom Discrepancy A journalist started a GoFundMe for a 12-year-old biological male transgender student who used the girls’ restroom on the first day of class at a school in Achille, Oklahoma, causing so much uproar that the school district canceled classes for two days. Oklahoma City writer and journalist L. Anne Babb created the GoFundMe — “A Move for Maddie” — which has raised $25,945 as of Monday. The funds are intended to help the transgender student Maddie and his family move out...

    No more separate restrooms for boys and girls, with rows of feet-showing stalls. The North Kansas City school district is going fully gender neutral at two new elementary schools, opening on Wednesday, as well as in a few renovated restrooms in North Kansas City High School and the sixth-grade centers. The bathrooms still have an open alcove area with a common trough sink, but the toilets are enclosed inside individual stalls with floor-to-ceiling walls and lockable doors.

    A Kansas City-area school district that garnered national attention when a transgender student was crowned homecoming queen in 2015 has installed gender-neutral restrooms at two new elementary schools and in some existing locations. The individual bathroom stalls at Rising Hill Elementary and Northview Elementary in the North Kansas City School District two new elementary schools are enclosed with floor-to-ceiling walls and lockable doors, the Kansas City Star reported. The restrooms still have an open alcove area with a common trough sink. Both male and female symbols adorn the same sign on the wall outside the bathrooms. The elementary schools opened...
  • Obamacare may force insurers to cover ‘genital reconstruction’

    WASHINGTON, D.C., March 23, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The Obama Health and Human Services Department is finalizing a regulation requiring insurers under Obamacare to pay for genital reconstruction surgery. A sweeping "Nondiscrimination Mandate" applies federal civil rights laws to the Affordable Care Act, calling for medical plans that receive federal funds to cover gender reassignment surgeries, under the guise of helping gender-confused individuals. It is unclear whether the Obama nondiscrimination mandate will also force private insurers, such as companies that run their own employee health plans, to cover surgery attempting to change one's gender.  Under federal law (referred to as ERISA),...
  • Colorado Civil Rights Commission Misquotes Supreme Court to Go After Jack Phillips Again

    Christian Post ^ | 08/17/2018 | John Stonestreet And Roberto Rivera
    Believe it or not, Jack Phillips is once again being hauled before the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. In June, Jack Phillips won a five-year battle against the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. The Supreme Court, by a 7-2 margin, ruled that the Commission had displayed impermissible bias towards his faith. What kind of bias? Well, statements comparing Phillips' unwillingness to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding to the Holocaust. Yes, there was ample evidence, the court ruled, that the Commission was out to get Phillips. It seems like the Commission, which was almost defunded for their shenanigans by the Colorado...
  • You Won’t Believe What Kids Can Find On ‘Transgender’ At The Public Library

    The Federalist ^ | 08/16/2018 | By Maureen Mullarkey
    Determined to be relevant, my town library is ripping out its excessively gendered women’s and men’s rooms to make way for four gender-neutral bathrooms. The renovation concretizes the American Library Association’s endorsement of gender ideology. Measured by the ALA’s Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services, relevant means assisting “traditionally underserved” communities.Among those neglected, the ALA cites “GLBT populations,” an improbable capitulation to identity politics. The ALA has decided that a sexually fungible—also militant, well-funded, and politically savvy—fragment of the public needs more material about itself. In accord with a service model, selections must be supportive, even flattering. They...

    Democrat primary voters in Vermont have a handed a turnout-driver for Republicans nationwide by nominating Christine Hallquist, a man who pretends he is a woman (known for the moment as a "transgender woman") for governor.  The reason has nothing to do with voters' bigotry against people who pretend to be the other sex.  Rather, it is all about her (his? zir's?  Hallquist has yet to instruct us on which personal pronouns we are to use) bigotry toward Christians. Deidre Reilly of LifeZette presents the evidence that a couple of days' worth of digging has uncovered: CNN screen grab."And we worry about sharia law!!" Hallquist tweeted...

    Full headline: Christian-hating transgender VT gubernatorial candidate duped by satire site: ‘Some evangelists just crazy!’ Blinded by Hate: The country’s first major party transgender gubernatorial candidate, Christine Hallquist, has repeatedly demonstrated in the recent past she has no love for Christians. In fact, the Democratic candidate appears to be so blinded by hate for our country’s dominant religious philosophy that she allowed it to cloud her better judgment when she responded negatively to a post at a Christian-themed satire site, the Babylon Bee.

    Christine Hallquist, the country’s first major party transgender candidate as the newly minted Democratic nominee for the governorship of Vermont, once tweeted an insinuation that “radicalized Christians” are a problem that Americans currently “tolerate.” “And we worry about sharia law!!” Hallquist tweeted in June 2017 along with a link to an article from “LGBTQ Nation” about a girl disqualified from a soccer team because she looked like a boy. “Radicalized Christians are a part of the American landscape, and we tolerate it.”

    A school district in southern Oklahoma was forced to shut down for two days after parents used a Facebook group to threaten violence against a transgender seventh-grade student. Superintendent Rick Beene closed Achille Public Schools on Monday and Tuesday after parents posted claims on a Facebook group “Achille ISD Parents Group” that the student, who identifies as a girl, was looking over the stalls in the girls’ bathroom. “Heads up parents of 5th through 7th grade,” parent Jamie Crenshaw said in a now-deleted post. “The transgender is already using the girls bathroom. We have been told how the school has...

    A former energy company executive from Vermont has come a step closer to becoming the nation's first transgender governor. Christine Hallquist swept to victory in Tuesday’s crowded gubernatorial primary, besting three other Democrats — including a 14-year-old boy — to become the party’s nominee. She is the first trans person to win a major party’s nomination for governor.

    On a cloudy afternoon this summer, Christine Hallquist, a former utility executive from Vermont, listened closely as Danica Roem, the Virginia state delegate who won national recognition when she became the first transgender person elected to her state’s Legislature, offered tips as the pair canvassed a stark residential neighborhood here. Ms. Hallquist is transgender, too, but Ms. Roem’s advice had nothing to do with gender identity. Try a light, rhythmic knock. Leave a handwritten note with campaign literature if no one is home. Try to earn every vote. “I have so much to learn,” Ms. Hallquist said, duly incorporating Ms....

    A study that shows a huge jump in children who identify as transgender can be traced to a culture pushing the idea. "Children are steeped in this culture, at least through the developed western world," observes Dr. Micelle Cretella, "that is basically marketing this transgender identity to them." A study performed earlier this year shows nearly three percent of 13-to 17-year-olds identify as transgender as compared to less than one percent just a year ago. The study, published by American Academy of Pediatrics, looked at approximately 81,000 ninth and 11th grade students in Minnesota. Experts say those results can be...

    A restaurant chain is facing a lawsuit regarding a Harlem restaurant staff's refusal to serve a group of transgender woman and a gender nonconforming person. Deja Smith, Daniele Marino, Jonovia Chase, Jahmila Adderley and Valerie Spencer claim they were told the Texas Burgers & Chicken on Frederick Douglass Boulevard and West 116th Street was out of chicken when they attempted to order there on May 28, but a customer directly behind them had his order taken, according to multiple reports. A video of the discriminatory behavior went viral in May after it was posted to Instagram by "Orange is the...

    It sounds like some audience members are taking the title Straight White Men far too literally. Non-binary performer and activist Kate Bornstein stars as Person in Charge 1 in Young Jean Lee’s privilege-checking Broadway satire. Bornstein was interrupted earlier this week by a heckler while delivering the opening monologue alongside fellow trans docent Ty Defoe. I’m deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support in response to an attempted shaming of me that happened during a performance of Young Jean Lee’s “Straight White Men” on Broadway last night. It’s true what people are saying: a woman, in response to...

    The Hungarian government is discontinuing programs in gender studies at state-run universities after determining the programs serve no identifiable purpose and are based on “ideology rather than science.” Bence Rétvári, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Human Resources (EMMI), said that university degrees must be rooted in a scientific basis, whereas gender studies, “like Marxist-Leninism,” are more aptly termed ideology than science, and are inappropriate matter for university-level education. A spokesman for the Hungarian government told Breitbart News that there is no demand for gender studies graduates in the Hungarian job market.

    A sorority at Harvard University has decided to close rather than admit men who claim to be women into their group amid the university's sanctions against single-gender social organizations. In May, Zeta Phi-Cambridge — the Delta Gamma chapter at Harvard — voted to relinquish their charter and thereby shut down, Campus Reform reported Monday. Sanctions from the university came about in December 2017 when new rules were adopted which established that members of single-sex organizations like Zeta Phi were not allowed to hold leadership posts in officially recognized student organizations or be captains of sports teams. The new rules also...

    As a transgender woman, Trace Lysette had watched from the sidelines as actors like Eddie Redmayne (“The Danish Girl”) and Matt Bomer (“Anything”) played members of her community on the big and small screen. When news hit last month that Scarlett Johansson would portray a transgender man in the biopic “Rub and Tug,” she could no longer stay quiet. Since the “Transparent” actress wasn’t getting opportunities to audition for cisgender (non-transgender) roles, she argued on Twitter that the industry should at least allow transgender actors to play what they know.

    A U.S. court on Monday ruled the Trump administration could not enforce an updated policy barring certain transgender people from serving in the U.S. military, becoming the second court in the country to rule against the government since it unveiled the policy in March. Trump announced on March 23 that he would endorse a plan by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to restrict the military service of transgender people who experience a condition called gender dysphoria. The policy replaced an outright ban on transgender service members that Trump announced last year on Twitter, citing concern over military focus and medical costs....
