    The 5-year-old stepson of a British woman who lives as a man, with the child’s mother, is now “transitioning” to a girl, the couple has revealed. They also complain that they’ve suffered “insults” at the hands of people online and their neighbors, and they’ve also been reported to social services. What, exactly, these insults are was not specified in an article covering the couple on Heart. They’re adamant, however, that they’re not responsible for the child’s gender confusion and that the “transition” is what’s best:

    The internet was buzzing earlier this week as the first trailer for "Spider-Man: Far From Home" was released by Marvel, featuring Spidey and film star Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio. But the web is also excited about the film for reasons beyond the main players. Marvel has cast trans actor Zach Barack as one of Peter Parker's buddies who travels with him to Venice on a high school field trip. The 22-year-old actor hails from Evanston, Illinois and is an actor, singer and comedian. This marks one of the first times a trans actor has been featured in the Marvel Cinematic...

Earlier this month, LifeSiteNews reported on the video, which shows a man angrily attempting to return a purchase then swearing at the man behind the counter and another customer who called him “sir.” Despite his masculine face, voice, and physique, the customer demanded to be regarded as “ma’am” because “quite clearly I am not” male.

    The New York state legislature passed a series of bills Tuesday banning licensed therapists from engaging in conversion therapy and shielding transgender people from discrimination. The Gender Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA), which outlaws discrimination based on gender identity or expression, was first introduced more than a decade ago and has passed the Democrat-held Assembly every year since 2008, but finally received a vote in the Senate after the Democrats reclaimed a majority of the upper chamber in November. “After a protracted 16-year battle, the Democratic majority will finally be able to shield transgender and gender-nonconforming New Yorkers from discrimination and hate,”...

    A California pastor is looking for a job after facing backlash over a church sign that affirms the biblical definition of gender and marriage. Pastor Justin Hoke of Trinity Bible Presbyterian Church in Weed, California, posted a new church sign in early January. The sign read: "Bruce Jenner is still a man. Homosexuality is still sin. The culture may change. The Bible does not."

    “Jennifer” Pritzker is playing macho hardball with the GOP, issuing an ultimatum: Change the GOP positions on all matters related to deviant sexuality or he’ll take his ball of money and stomp home. And by home, I mean the Democratic Party. As most Illinoisans know, the billionaire cousin of our loo-less billionaire governor J.B. Pritzker is “Jennifer” Pritzker, a husky 69-year-old man who, after retiring from his 27-year Army career now pretends to be a woman—a Republican woman. Last week, in a commentary replete with overheated rhetoric that appeared in the Chicago Tribune and Washington Post, Pritzker (falsely) accused the...

    Imagine that a man walks into a courtroom and swears to tell “my truth, the whole of my truth, and nothing but my truth, so help you all.” Imagine your incredulity as, for whatever reason, he gives an outlandishly false testimony. Imagine your dismay as the judge explains that all subsequent evidence and, especially, all cross examination, must support the man’s “truth,” and as he instructs the members of the jury that they, too, must affirm it. “You be you. Live your truth. And know that New York City will have your back,” Mayor Bill de Blasio told a cheering...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has awarded the Trump administration a victory by staying a lower court decision which blocked the administration’s attempts to restrict the military service of transgender people who suffer from a condition known as gender dysphoria. The court found that Trump’s new policy, which was based upon the findings of former Secretary of State Jim Mattis (see below), was in fact a more nuanced version of the original policy and should not have been summarily blocked by District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly. The Trump administration has asked the Supreme Court to...

"When you win the battle, you don't have to fight the battle again," Patrick said when asked if the bill would be on this year's agenda.

    At the end of the long weekend when my daughter came out as transgender, she headed back to her car with her girlfriend. I watched them from my apartment window as they packed up. My child looked up, and waved. Then she drove off. I closed the window. Tears rushed to my eyes. She’s saying goodbye, I thought. I’ll never see her again. This, of course, turned out to be malarkey. In the months to come I’d see her lots of times, and each time she seemed happier, and more herself. You’d think that as a transgender person myself, I’d...

    You might have thought it was the most innocuous item someone could wear: a simple black T-shirt bearing the dictionary definition of woman as ‘human female’. But a young mother has been barred from her local pub after a complaint that the words discriminated against transgender people. The unlikely new front line of the ongoing war between feminists and transgender campaigners is the snug Five Clouds Tap and Bottle in the historic market town of Macclesfield. Rebekah Wershbale said she was ‘stunned’ when a barwoman at the pub informed her she was banned because of the definition. Ms Wershbale said:...
