  • Are you a bigot for refusing to date a transgender person? LGBT activists think so

    July 24, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Indications that our culture is on its last legs, rationally speaking, are in abundance these days. Earlier this month, for example, we’ve been exposed to the delightful new term “theybies”—which, if you’re wondering, is what you call a baby when you decide to raise the child “gender-neutral” so that they can choose their own gender at around four years old. In Ireland, which has been gleefully offloading its Christian heritage since they repealed the right to life for pre-born children in May, the social protection minister lauded a report on “Ireland’s gender identity laws…that recommended...

    We’ve all heard the lie that indulging someone’s gender confusion is the compassionate response. But according to a new study, it might also be a deadly one. In a stunning research project — so large and credible that even the mainstream media can’t ignore it — doctors are finally exposing the dangers of transgenderism. And in a culture racing to redefine the sexes, not a moment too soon. Of course, we know how emotionally destructive the treatment can be from the testimonies of people who regret it. But pumping your body full of hormones is just as devastating physically, Kaiser...

    Bethany Mandel recently wrote an article at Ricochet, “What Does It Mean to Be a Woman?“ in which she responded to a tweet by a transgender person, @LifeofBria, who claimed that, just like all other women, he gets “periods”: (snip) But here’s the thing: a period is the flow of menstrual blood approximately two weeks after ovulation. If you don’t ovulate, you don’t have a period. Strictly speaking, even women who are on the pill and don’t ovulate don’t have “periods” even if, due to the pattern of their pills, they bleed on a four-week cycle. Instead, they experience breakthrough...
  • U. Minnesota may punish people who refuse to use someone’s preferred gender pronoun

    The College Fix ^ | July 16, 2018 | Jennifer Kabbany
    The University of Minnesota is considering a policy to discipline students or professors who refuse to call someone by their preferred gender pronoun, with penalties that could include being fired or expelled. The draft policy under review may change, but as of now it states that “university members and units are expected to use the names, gender identities and pronouns specified to them by university members, except as legally required.” When someone does not go along with a person whose biological sex does not match their preferred gender — such as refusing to call a biological man a woman —...
  • What a Sight! Feminists Clash with Transgenders at London Pride Parade

    We told you it would happen, and it finally has. Conservatives long predicted that feminism and transgenderism were ultimately incompatible, but for a long time it seemed like the LGBT movement might just hold them together. Well, on Saturday that movement burst open, as lesbians led the parade in attacking transgenderism. "Transactivism Erases Lesbians!" read a banner that temporarily led the Pride in London march in the heart of Britain's capital. This banner naturally caused quite a stir, with London Mayor Sadiq Khan denouncing it in a statement. "Pride is about celebrating difference and London's amazing LGBT+ community," Khan's spokesperson...

    A group of lesbian activists blocked the start of the Pride in London march today (7 July) in protest against transgender women. A group of eight women stormed the parade route without accreditation. Then five of them laid down on the road in front of the parade and draped a banner over them. The banner read: ‘Transactivism erases lesbians’. They then blocked the parade route for about 10 minutes. One of the activists shouted out: ‘A man who says he’s a lesbian is a rapist’ The group also had a banner that said ‘Lesbian = female homosexual’, as well as...

    NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) -- - A local transgender rights group is sending a message to lawmakers about the immigration crisis. The ‘We Exist’ Coalition says they’re rallying to give a voice to the hundreds of immigrant families and children. It was a strong message coming from the steps of Niagara Falls City Hall Saturday. “We need to have compassion, dignity and as much bravery,” said Angela Burnham, a leader with the We Exist Coalition of Buffalo. She says people need to have compassion for the thousands of children separated from their parents at the border. She says she wants...
  • Murray State Adds 'Gender Identity' to Nondiscrimination Statement (Kentucky)

    'Gender identity' is now part of Murray State University's nondiscrimination statement. The Board of Regents voted on Friday to approve the change for the university to be more inclusive and to protect federal contracts. President Bob Davies explained the origins of the change date back to the executive order President Lyndon Johnson signed in 1965 establishing equal opportunity in hiring and employment practices related to federal contractors. The order has seen several amendments over the decades, including in 2014, when President Barack Obama added that federal contractors and subcontractors are prohibited from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and...

    Christian Post ^ | 06/05/2018 | Brandon Showalter
    A new study finds that certain brain activity of individuals who believe they are the opposite sex mirrors that of the gender they would like to embrace. But experts say the study doesn't show whether the brain differences are innate or due to the choices and life experiences of those with gender dysphoria. Additionally, the study conflicts with other supposedly pro-transgender studies that purport to show there is no such thing as male and female brain differences. In the future, those questioning their gender might be offered brain scans to determine whether they are experiencing gender dysphoria, if the findings...

    The Trump administration plans to eliminate an Obama-era regulation that opponents say requires faith-based hospitals, insurance providers and doctors to perform, provide and cover gender-reassignment surgeries and procedures that violate their religious convictions. The New York Times reported Saturday that the United States Department of Health and Human Services submitted a proposal to the White House that would eliminate a 2016 rule that barred health care providers and employers from discriminating against transgender patients seeking to transition genders. The move comes after Judge Reed O'Connor in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas issued a nationwide...

    When General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis was picked by President Trump to serve as Secretary of Defense, the veteran community was largely ecstatic. Finally, someone would sit in the Pentagon’s top seat who was a warrior, and an enemy of the PC monster eating the military alive. While there is no doubt that General Mattis served honorably, there is growing doubt and indeed fear that he will never lift a finger to stop the social engineering that is putting the US military on a collision course to disaster. Therefore, US Defense Watch has comprised a list of questions for General...

    In 1967, a Boston Marathon official nearly dragged a woman off the course after she managed to enter the men's-only race. Five decades later, race officials aren't as concerned about gender boundaries: They're now publicly acknowledging that transgender runners can compete using the gender they identify with. "We take people at their word. We register people as they specify themselves to be," said Tom Grilk, chief of the Boston Athletic Association, the group behind the race. "Members of the LGBT community have had a lot to deal with over the years, and we'd rather not add to that burden."

    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...

    Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is expected to recommend to President Trump that transgender people can serve in the U.S. military if they can deploy overseas, a U.S. official with knowledge of the secretary’s thinking on the issue told Fox News Thursday. The official said Mattis did not want to go against recent federal court orders which ruled Trump’s proposed ban on transgender people serving in the military is unlawful.

    Defense Secretary James Mattis will provide President Trump with his recommendations on transgender troops sometime this week, the Pentagon confirmed Thursday. “The secretary will provide his recommendation to the president this week regarding transgender individuals and military service, and the president will announce his decision,” chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White told reporters at her semi-weekly briefing Thursday. In tweets over the summer, Trump announced his intentions to ban transgender people from serving in the military. He followed through with an August memo prohibiting the military from enlisting transgender people and from using funds to pay for gender transition-related surgery. The...

    An Ohio court has removed a teenaged girl from the custody of her parents because they refused to consent to dangerous and experimental medical treatment. The teenager wants to undergo irreversible treatment (hormones and probably sex-reassignment surgery) that she hopes will alleviate the depression associated with her gender dysphoria based on 1) the scientific facts that such treatment will convert her into a lifelong medical patient and probably fail to alleviate her suicidal tendencies, 2) their religious belief that created reality is unalterable, and 3) their fundamental right to direct the upbringing of their minor child, the parents said no. But...

    All scientific evidence indicates that gender identity disorders result principally from cultural causes and moreover, modern society is facilitating them, according to an analysis published Friday. Writing for the Catholic World Report, Anne Hendershott chronicles an exploding “transgender industry” illustrated by a massive surge in the number of referrals for gender-identity treatment, in some cases increasing by as much as 2800 percent in less than ten years. Western societies such as the UK, Sweden, Australia, and the USA have seen a spectacular rise in the number of persons, especially young people, seeking treatment for gender identity issues, paralleling the attention...

    Oh rejoice! It’s another victory for leftists and another nail in the coffin for the US military. This would be nail number 2,485. According to Bloomberg News Service and the Associated Press: the Pentagon is allowing transgender people to enlist in the military beginning Jan. 1, despite President Donald Trump’s opposition. Oh rejoice! Another victory for diversity! Of course our enemies like North Korea and ISIS and Iran wouldn’t know diversity if it drove over them with a bus full of lactating Airborne Rangers, but don’t tell the Pentagon that. Oh rejoice! Another victory for political correctness! The military has...

    Full Title: Pentagon prepares to accept transgender recruits beginning in January, as Trump’s ban hangs in the balanceThe U.S. military is preparing to accept transgender recruits for the first time beginning in January, the Pentagon said Wednesday, the latest signal that President Trump’s desired ban may not materialize after all. Officials are “taking steps to be prepared” to bring in the first transgender recruits on Jan. 1, as required by a federal court order issued recently, said Army Maj. David Eastburn, a Pentagon spokesman. He declined to comment further, citing open litigation, but said that the Defense Department and Justice...

    The Pentagon has met the enemy and it is itself. Like a twisted version of Dorian Gray, every time the feather merchants in the Pentagon stare at themselves in an E Ring latrine mirror, they become more PC, more sensitive, more gutless and less focused on anything to do with war fighting. Here’s some of the latest craziness emanating from what used to be the US military… News concerning Comrade Lieutenant Spenser Rapone has seemed to wither away, perhaps swept under that giant rug in the Pentagon entrance way.
