    Lucas was only 8 when his mother dressed him in girl’s clothes and sent him to school. “I didn’t know who I was,” he told us in this heartbreaking email. “I have sent this story to many websites and none of them have published it. I feel like I need to share this especially after learning about Desmond. I think our experiences could be very similar, and hopefully this could help some people are going through the same thing,” wrote Lucas. Desmond “Desi” Napoles, 12, is a child drag performer, fashion model, actor, and LGBTQ activist, known by the stage...

    When groups feel threatened, they retreat into tribalism. When groups feel mistreated and disrespected, they close ranks and become more insular, more defensive, more punitive, more us-versus-them. In America today, every group feels this way to some extent. Whites and blacks, Latinos and Asians, men and women, Christians, Jews, and Muslims, straight people and gay people, liberals and conservatives – all feel their groups are being attacked, bullied, persecuted, discriminated against. Of course, one group’s claims to feeling threatened and voiceless are often met by another group’s derision because it discounts their own feelings of persecution – but such is...

    If normal radical liberals in Big Tech weren’t bad enough, Twitch has named a transgender streamer who self-identifies as a deer to be on the platform’s “Safety Advisory Council.” ... In one, Loehr wore antlers while broadcasting and explained: “In my spare time, I go out to my yard, and I, and I prance around. And I eat grass.” While explaining this, Loehr mimed eating grass and described how “it helps me feel, like, in tune with my deer-self.” . . . Loehr claimed the cause of the harassment is merely because "I am different and twitch has platformed me.”...

    Judge Chatigny has a track record of favoring sexual predators over women and children. Now this same judge is prejudicing the case against female athletes by imposing a speech code on their counsel. The year was 2010. President Barack Obama was in office, and Democrats controlled the Senate. Obama could practically get any judge he wanted, but he could not get his nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, Robert Chatigny, confirmed based on ChatignyÂ’s track record of favoring sexual predators over women and children. Now this same judge is prejudicing the case against female athletes...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. — A man born as Richard who now identifies as Rachel, and who has officially led Pennsylvania’s Department of Health as secretary since 2018, is being broadcast on television screens across the commonwealth on a daily basis as he provides regular briefings on the status of COVID-19 in the Keystone state, exhorting residents on taking care of their physical and mental health. “Your job right now is to stay calm, stay safe and please stay at home,” Levine said in a press conference on Monday, wearing a scarf, black dress with Mary Jane shoes, and nail polish. “As...

    The World Health Organization (WHO), for which the Trump administration has halted U.S. funding pending a review, advises that in the sex education programs in Europe children age four and under be given information about "early childhood masturbation" and the "right to explore gender identities." In addition, for children ages four to six, the WHO recommends they be given information "about friendship and love towards people of the same sex" and "same-sex relationships," and be guided to develop "an open, non-judgmental attitude."

    Attorneys representing three high school girls in a lawsuit aimed at barring transgender female athletes from competing in women’s divisions have filed a motion calling on the presiding judge to recuse himself after he forbid the attorneys from referring the transgender athletes as “males.” The lawsuit was filed by nonprofit Alliance Defending Freedom in February on behalf of the families of three female high school track athletes who say their transgender competitors are enjoying an unfair advantage. The lawsuit challenges the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference policy that allows students who identify as female to participate in women’s sports and argues...

    U.S. District Judge Robert Chatigny, a Bill Clinton appointee who Obama tried unsuccessfully to elevate to the federal appellate court, said in an April 16 conference call with the attorneys that they had to abide by his politically-correct terminology for the student-athletes at the heart of the case, according to a transcript obtained by the National Review. “What I’m saying is you must refer to them as ‘transgender females” rather than as ‘males.’ Referring to these individuals as ‘transgender females’ is consistent with science, common practice and perhaps human decency. To refer to them as ‘males,’ period, is not accurate,...

    Whether you consider it a glimmer of hope or an act of sheer stupidity, Jersey Shore beaches are reopening. You may be thinking to yourself that a trip to your favorite beach at the Jersey Shore is just what your cabin fevered mind and soul need. Heck, just yesterday, I spoke with a good friend at the Jersey Shore. She basically said, C’mon down. We’d BYO food. We’d stay outside — no in-house bathroom breaks. (Fortunately, there’s an outdoor shower drain. Ew.) There would always be six feet — heck, make it eight feet! — between us. What could go...

    Aimee Stephens made national headlines when she said she was fired from her job at metro Detroit-based GR & RG Funeral Homes in 2013 after coming out as a transgender woman. Stephens then sued her employee for discrimination, and the case is now before the Supreme Court. But now, Stephens might not live to see the case's decision. According to a GoFundMe campaign set up on behalf of her family, Stephens' health has deteriorated due to kidney disease, and she's now in hospice care.

    SAVANNAH, Ga. -- A transgender fire chief has filed a federal discrimination lawsuit against the small Georgia city where she led the fire department for more than a decade, then was fired 18 months after she began coming to work as a woman. Rachel Mosby says her firing last summer by the city of Byron not only cost her wages and retirement benefits, but also tarnished her reputation. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Macon says city officials fired Mosby “based on her sex, gender identity, and notions of sex stereotyping.” A city of about 4,500 in...

    Parents have forced a council to pull guidance to schools which allowed transgender pupils to use girls’ toilets and dormitories. Warwickshire County Council said it had withdrawn its “Trans toolkit”, which offered advice to 300 schools, and placed it under review. Parents were furious that schools were being told to allow transitioning pupils to “sleep where they feel most comfortable” and use whichever toilets they wanted. Tessa McInnes, 50, who has two children in Warwickshire schools, told the Times: “The equal rights of girls are simply discounted and disregarded in this guidance. If they express any discomfort about a male...

    Yep. This pretty much sums it up. The “Secretary of Health” in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is a literal madman, a person who just a few short decades ago would have been locked up in a mental hospital for his own protection. This is no exaggeration. This madman, Dr. Richard Levine, is a notorious sex pervert, who has now mutilated his body and wears women’s clothing. In the press he is referred to as “Rachel Levine”. THIS MADMAN IS HOLDING THE CITIZENS OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA UNDER HOUSE ARREST AND HAS SUSPENDED ALL RIGHTS UNDER THE CONSTITUTION BY HIS...

    Lesbian YouTube creator Arielle Scarcella is critical of advocates for transgender athletes in women’s sports in a video exposing how these biological men mock and berate their female competitors. In her video titled, “Trans Athletes Call Women Competitors LOSERS & MOCK Female Sports,” Scarcella asked, “Do transgender women have an advantage by being born male?” “When trans women powerlifters are breaking female records, and young women are suing high school boards, we need to talk,” she said in her video. Scarcella pointed to a February tweet by Chase Strangio, deputy director for transgender justice at the ACLU. “If you are...

    The federal government is formally objecting to Connecticut's requirement that boys who "identify" as girls be allowed to compete against girls in high school athletics. "They are incorrect. Title IX and its implementing regulations prohibit discrimination solely 'on the basis of sex,' not on the basis of transgender status, and therefore neither require nor authorize [the state's] transgender policy," explains a legal filing in a lawsuit over the dispute. The complaint against the state, Soule v. Connecticut Association of Schools, was brought by female high school athletes and their mothers. A lawyer for the girls, Christiana Holcomb of the Alliance...

    Shawnee State University in southern Ohio (cross the bridge and you’re in Kentucky) is an open-admissions school that opened in 1986. It’s very little known, but the school’s administrators are as politically attuned to progressive sensibilities as any across the nation. A case that has arisen at Shawnee threatens to set a terrible precedent for the suppression of speech that any “woke” student claims to find harassing. Nicholas Meriwether has been on the Shawnee faculty since 1996, teaching political science. He has risen to the rank of full professor with the equivalent of tenure. In a course on political philosophy...

    We may be in the middle of quarantine during a pandemic, but the LGBT agenda never takes a break. This week, NBC introduced the new show Council of Dads, inspired by Bruce Feiler's best-selling memoir of the same name. According to Deadline, after Feiler was diagnosed with cancer he feared "what the absence of a father figure would do to the lives of his young twin daughters, he [Feiler] looked at his male friends and realized that there was no one person perfectly suited for the job. So he formed a Council of Dads, which consisted of six of his...

    Mark Vincent Busenbark, a middle-aged man with a cross-dressing alter ego he calls Vica Steel, has been creating intellectual and moral havoc in Frank Allis Elementary School in Madison, Wisconsin for a year. Last school year, Busenbark, a science teacher, created a creepy video about his creepy predilection for cross-dressing and pretending to be sometimes a man and sometimes a woman. Then, with the permission of his administration, he presumptuously showed his creepy “coming out” video to all K-5 students without their parents’ knowledge or consent. In this video, he describes in biased language his disordered and delusional view of...

    For transgender and gender non-conforming people, gender-affirming surgeries are life-altering procedures, which, for many, can greatly reduce gender dysphoria and improve their quality of life. But in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, trans communities on Reddit and Twitter are being flooded with reports of postponed and canceled surgeries in the U.S., U.K., Spain, Thailand, and elsewhere, leading to enormous stress and disappointment on top of a global health crisis.
