  • Rainbow Bullies Denying Treatment to Those Who Seek It

    Imagine if a young person was struggling with a drug addiction, or a gambling addiction, or a sexual addiction, but the government passed laws saying these people could NOT get help, therapy or treatment in dealing with these unwanted addictions or attractions. Most people would be utterly shocked at such heartless and fascist interference by the state. They would correctly argue that people should have the right and the freedom to make such choices for themselves, and should not be denied help when they desperately want it. Yet this is happening throughout the West when it comes to people who...
  • Gov’t Must Impose ‘Transgender’ Demands Nationwide, Says Judge

    A federal judge in Washington State has declared that all civic groups nationwide must accept people of the other sex into their single-sex spaces and activities, or else be stigmatized and sued by the federal government. In legal jargon, Judge Marsha Pechman declared in a lawsuit against the Pentagon’s “transgender” policy that the federal government must use its powers to champion people who want to live as members of the sex, either inside the military or outside, just as it must use federal powers to suppress racism: Today, the Court concludes that transgender people constitute a suspect class.

  • Jenner: Trump Performance Good in 'Certain Areas' but 'Horrible' on Transgender Issues

    Actress Caitlyn Jenner told PJM that she is satisfied with President Trump’s job performance in “certain areas” but transgender rights issues are not among them. Jenner also said many of the DREAMers are “great Americans” and she hopes Congress makes “the right decision” on fixing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Jenner joined actor Richard Gere at the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute’s annual gala Wednesday, where Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) was honored for her years of “public service and international leadership” as the first Hispanic woman elected to Congress. Jenner was asked if she thinks Congress should provide legal...

    The first large-scale, national study of transgender children, including some as young as 3, is poised to expand thanks to a five-year, $1 million grant awarded Thursday by the National Science Foundation to the professor leading the project. University of Washington psychologist Kristina Olson, 36, was named winner of the NSF’s annual Alan T. Waterman Award, the government’s highest honor for scientists still in the early phases of their careers. The NSF said the choice was unanimous, and noted that pediatricians are already using her findings to raise awareness about gender diversity.

    The Daily Caller ^ | 4/11/2018 | John Conlin
    Yet in what can only be called a period of country-wide insanity, we do just the opposite with those who have a transgendered disorder, i.e. they feel as though “they” are not in internal agreement with their birth gender. The official name is gender dysphoria and somewhere around 0.3% of the US population have this disorder. Do we offer these people help with their disorder as we do with all those others or do we celebrate and encourage their disorder? Sadly it seems fashionable to do the later. Society would rightly be up in arms if more and more babies...

    If our world survives a few more generations, historians will doubtless look back at our current era and ask, "Was there something in the water? Something in the air? How is it that an entire society went mad at the same time?" If you've read my columns over the years, you know I have compassion for those who genuinely struggle with their gender identity. That is something I wouldn't wish on anyone, something I do not treat lightly. At the same time, you know that I have often spoken against today's cultural madness in which perception becomes reality. In the...

    Evangelist Franklin Graham slammed Target for the incident in a Facebook post on Wednesday and urged his more than 6.7 million followers to boycott the company in response. In the post, Graham blamed the incident on the company's bathroom policy, which was changed two years ago to allow transgender customers to use any bathroom or fitting room that matched their gender identity.

    Police are looking for a man who exposed himself to a child in a Chicago Target women's restroom last week, prompting some to blame the store's gender-neutral bathroom policies for the crime. Hey @Target! We told you https://t.co/98V0XDhevb — Jaihawkk (@Jaihawkk) April 5, 2018 According to Chicago police, a mother entered the bathroom with her young daughter. A man, insisting that he needed to use the restroom too, went into the women's room soon afterward. The sicko pushed into the stall where the little girl was, exposed his genitals, used the facility, and then fled the scene, police said. He...

    A federal court in Puerto Rico has ruled that transgender people in the U.S. territory should be allowed to change the gender on their birth certificate if they wish. Lambda Legal said Wednesday that a judge this week found a previous ban on making such a change was unconstitutional. The New York-based civil rights organization had filed a lawsuit against Puerto Rico’s government a year ago seeking to eliminate the ban in the first federal lawsuit of its kind. …

    A young black transgender woman was shot dead in a Louisiana motel this week, becoming at least the seventh transgender woman known to have been killed in the United States this year, rights advocates said. The woman, Amia Tyrae, 28, was killed Monday at about 1:15 a.m. at a motel on Airline Highway, according to the Baton Rouge Police Department. Dr. William Clark, the East Baton Rouge Parish coroner, ruled Ms. Tyrae’s death a homicide, caused by a gunshot wound to the chest. The Police Department said Friday night that Dedrick Butler, 22, of Denham Springs, La., had been arrested...

    The White House announced Friday that the Trump administration would implement its ban on all transgender service in the military "except under certain limited circumstances." It would also stop all use of Defense Department or Homeland Security resources to fund new sex reassignment surgeries, except to protect the health of individuals who have already begun treatment to reassign his or her sex. The announcement was expected, since it was part of President Trump's executive memo in August 2017 renewing a former transgender military service. According to the White House memo, "transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria -- individuals...
  • 'Historic decision': Sweden to offer payouts to sterilized transsexuals

    Sweden has become the first country in the world to offer compensation to transgender people who were forced to undergo sterilization in order to be allowed to change their sex. While often hailed as a forward-thinking society promoting equality for all, up until 2013 Swedes had to accept sterilization before getting official recognition for sex changes. But hundreds of people who were sterilized between 1972 and 2013 will now be entitled to seek damages after the Swedish parliament approved the government’s proposal on Wednesday. Equality campaigners at RFSL, Sweden’s largest organization for gay and transgender rights, welcomed the “historic decision”...

    American Thinker ^ | 3/22/2018 | Peter Skurkiss
    To get a feel for the level of craziness of today's world, take a look at sports – women's sports in particular. It is on the cusp of being turned upside-down because of the rise and societal acceptance of the phenomenon known as "transgenderism." "Transitioning from male to female" does not make a man into a woman. In spite of any cosmetic surgery, hormone treatments, affected mannerisms, and so on, the cellular DNA of the body does not change. A man is still a man. As this relates to women athletics, it doesn't take a detective of Nero Wolfe's caliber...

    Scientists have uncovered 20 genes linked to being transgender – supporting claims that the condition has a physical basis. Researchers believe the gene variations may contribute to people identifying with the opposite sex. Critics of transgender identity say the condition is ‘all in the mind’, and transgender people have a psychological problem rather than a medical one. But by highlighting genetic mutations that affect brain development, the latest findings point towards transgender identity having a physical basis.

    A religious studies major was barred from Christianity class at Indiana University of Pennsylvania for saying during class that there are only two genders. Lake Ingle, a senior at the university, said he was silenced and punished by IUP Professor Alison Downie for questioning her during a Feb. 28 “Christianity 481: Self, Sin, and Salvation” lecture. After showing a 15-minute TED Talk by transgender ex-pastor Paula Stone Williams discussing the “reality” of “mansplaining,” “sexism from men,” and “male privilege,” the professor asked the women in the class to share their thoughts. When no women in the class said anything, Ingle...

As reported by Campus Reform, Religious Studies major Lake Ingle was in a class February 28 that included a video lecture by “transgender woman” Paula Stone Williams, a man who used to be a prominent pastor and church planter before deciding that he felt more comfortable as a woman.

    FULL TITLE: Transgender visitor at a prison files lawsuit after she was ordered by guards to remove her underwear because a screening machine detected 'unknown object' in her pants A transgender woman who tried to visit her incarcerated brother has filed a federal lawsuit claiming that Louisiana prison officers ordered her to remove her underwear and show her genitals before she could leave the facility. Donald Nelson, a 48-year-old New Orleans resident who goes by the name 'China,' said in the complaint filed Tuesday that officers at Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola insisted on searching her vehicle after she refused...

    A transgender woman is suing Tinder on behalf of other transgender people living in the Portland area, claiming it rejects all transgender people from the dating service. Ariel Hawkins claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, a few days ago she edited her profile to disclose that she was a pre-op trans woman. She says Tinder immediately deleted her account. She says the company sent her email saying she violated its terms of service ... but didn't point her to any term and refused to explain the basis for the rejection.
  • Sex Reassignment Doesn’t Work. Here Is the Evidence.

    The Daily Signal ^ | March 08, 2018 | Ryan T. Anderson
    Sex “reassignment” doesn’t work. It’s impossible to “reassign” someone’s sex physically, and attempting to do so doesn’t produce good outcomes psychosocially. As I demonstrate in my book, “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment,” the medical evidence suggests that sex reassignment does not adequately address the psychosocial difficulties faced by people who identify as transgender. Even when the procedures are successful technically and cosmetically, and even in cultures that are relatively “trans-friendly,” transitioners still face poor outcomes.
