  • Bathroom bullies cost Curt Schilling his job at ESPN [Who Else Will Be Forced to Conform?]

    American Thinker ^ | 04/21/2016 | Thomas Lifson
    We are in the midst of a top-down sexual revolution, being forced on the public by the massed power of media, corporations, and governments in thrall to the small but powerful sexual minority intent on redefining sexuality.  Those who dare to oppose them, especially with mockery, can see their livelihoods destroyed.  They cannot handle mockery, because their latest cause is absurd and based on lies. Curt Schilling, a hero to Red Sox Nation and a highly regarded baseball analyst for CNN, dared to protest and mock the forcible intrusion of males on women’s restrooms.  As The New York Times...

    Manipulated Conservatives: Transgendered Bathrooms are Trivial As I watch people get involved with dramas over this issue, I think: What is it that we are not supposed to pay attention to? What is it that the elites, the media and the government don't want us to notice? Is it the loss of our history and culture with the change with monies, another knife in the gut by the Obama administration? Is it the subtlest of this election? Is it the lousy depression like statistics in some areas of the country? Is it the invasion of western Civ and our country...
  • In conservative Utah, naming road for gay leader stands out

    A proposal to name a street after pioneering gay leader Harvey Milk is the latest display of Salt Lake City standing out as a blue dot in a deep-red state where the prevailing Mormon faith still has a fraught relationship with the LGBT community. Utah's capital city recently elected its first openly gay mayor and its second sitting gay councilman, creating an increasingly friendly atmosphere for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the home of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The conservative religion's tone on gay issues has softened in recent years, but it still...
  • Target says transgender people can use bathroom that aligns with their identity

    Target Corp. made it clear that transgender people in its stores are welcome to use the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity. The statement Tuesday by the Minneapolis-based retailer comes amid debates in many state legislatures over restricting public restroom use to the sex listed on a persons birth certificate. While many of those conversations have centered around restrooms in public schools and government buildings, Target appears to be one of the first big-box retailers to take a proactive stance in declaring its position on the matter when it comes to its own restrooms. While they may not be...

    The Obama administration is considering whether North Carolinas new law on gay and transgender rights makes the state ineligible for billions of dollars in federal aid for schools, highways and housing, officials said Friday. Cutting off any federal money or even simply threatening to do so would put major new pressure on North Carolina to repeal the law, which eliminated local protections for gay and transgender people and restricted which bathrooms transgender people can use. A loss of federal money could send the state into a budget crisis and jeopardize services that are central to daily life. Although...

    Best-selling author Fay Weldon has caused controversy after suggesting that men are being driven to sex change because 'women have it better than men'. The 84-year-old, who lives in Dorset, also said anorexia was for 'girls who don`t want to grow up' and 'have periods', claiming that for many 'sex is disgusting'. It comes after fellow writer Ian McEwan sparked a row on Thursday after warning of a 'troubling' wave of political correctness when discussing the rights of transgender people.

Proponents of the legislation contended its inappropriate to have adolescent boys and girls showering and changing in the same room.

And in most cases, an employer can't put "John" on a worker's ID if she prefers "Jane." New York City's Human Rights Commission is establishing what advocates called some of the most powerful guidelines nationwide on gender-identity discrimination, releasing specifics Monday to flesh out broad protections in a 2002 law. "Today's guidance makes it abundantly clear what the city considers to be discrimination," which can lead to fines of up to $250,000, Commissioner Carmelyn P. Malalis said in a statement.

    It is now 34 years since the discovery and diagnosis of a peculiar and deadly disease afflicting homosexual men called acquired immune deficiency syndrome or AIDS. By now, knowledge of AIDS and of how the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is transmitted (via sex and the exchange of bodily fluids) is commonplace. And yet, RT reports, May 30, 2015, that the U.S. is seeing a sharp increase in sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among men who have sex with men, because of social media like Grindr.

    Most women are either bisexual or gay but "never straight", a study suggests. Research has found that though lesbians are much more attracted to the female form, most women who say they are straight are in fact aroused by videos of both naked men and naked women.
  • NY Times: In Houston, Hate Trumped Fairness (and teens will commit suicide because of this)

    NY Times ^ | November 4, 2015
    Sometime in the near future, a transgender teenager in Texas will attempt suicide — and maybe succeed — because vilifying people for their gender identity remains politically acceptable in America. The hateful rhetoric of leaders like Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is the latest, ugliest example. Mr. Patrick was ebullient on Tuesday night after it became clear that Houston voters had decidedly rejected a broad equal rights ordinance that opponents maliciously and misleadingly characterized as a boon for cross-dressing sex offenders. [Snip] As opponents of the ordinance celebrate their victory this week, transgender people across...

    Guardian columnist Zach Stafford, a self-described gay man, says that since masculinity has been central to centuries of war, pillaging, and violence, the very concept of manhood in modern society should be eliminated. There is a manhood in crisis trend story to match each one pondering whether women can have it all. But manhood isnt in crisis; it is the crisis, Stafford wrote in his Thursday column, Its time to do away with the concept of manhood altogether.

    I don't know what the proper etiquette on this is so I'm just going to say it in a way that actually makes sense. Chaz Bono is the daughter of Cher and Sonny Bono. Until a few years ago Chaz was Chastity before having a sex change from female to male (or man to woman, because apparently they're not the same thing) So, Chaz is having trouble hookin' up with the girls.The New York Daily News reports, I seem to repel women that I am attracted to, Bono told Confidenti@l at the Les Girls charity fund-raiser in Los Angeles.

    Report says Obama's Justice Department requires Christians to verbally affirm homosexuality regardless of beliefs. A brochure emailed to Department of Justice employees requiring them to verbally affirm homosexuality regardless of their personal beliefs has sparked accusations of religious intolerance and viewpoint discrimination, Todd Starnes reported at Fox News Tuesday. "The brochure was created as a resource from DOJ Pride, an association of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of the DOJ," Starnes wrote. According to Starnes, Liberty Counsel, a law firm that specializes in religious liberty, is representing an unidentified female DOJ worker who received the brochure, called LGBT Inclusion...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center continues to indoctrinate the children of this country with a radical, anti-Christian campaign. No longer a civil rights activist group, the SPLC now uses its power to program children into a pro-homosexual agenda using identity politics, social justice and socialist collectivism. The Teaching Tolerance curriculum teaches second graders that they should ignore their parents and cross dress if the feel like it. The book 10,000 Dresses by Marcus Ewert is a text recommended by the SPLC to teach tolerance and promulgated by activists. In the book, Bailey, a boy dreams of dresses, and is told...

    Melissa and Aaron Klein of Oregon, who were ordered by a state agency to pay two women $135,000 after they refused to take part in their same-sex wedding plans, may now face seizure of their assets.

According to reports, the agency is docketing the judgement and is exploring various options for collection.Docketing the...

    Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, a longtime Democrat, says she is switching to the Republican Party because she feels abandoned by Democrats in her fight against same-sex marriage. Davis' made the announcement while in Washington, D.C., to attend the Family Research Council's Value Voters Summit, said Charla Bansley, a spokeswoman for Liberty Counsel, which represents Davis in her legal battles. "I've always been a Democrat, but the party left me," Davis said, according to Bansley.

    Two sources close to Kentucky country clerk Kim Davis tell Breitbart News that the gay men whose demand for a marriage license started her on a path to jail for five days are again trying to get her locked up. ........ It is as if the two men believe the Supreme Court ordered Davis specifically to issue marriage licenses rather than simply guaranteeing that someone will issue marriage licenses to them. This sets up yet another challenge for Davis and almost certainly for Judge David Bunning. Davis will without a doubt refuse. Bunning may determine that the men must be...

    Politicians who may have thought they wouldnt have to say much at all about gay marriage once the U.S. Supreme Court effectively legalized it now must answer a different question: Do you support Kim Davis? The Rowan County clerk, who has become a darling of many conservatives despite being a Democrat, cited Gods authority and religious liberty in choosing jail time over issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Some social conservatives have cast Davis as a hero, shifting the gay marriage debate from one about civil libertiesa matter that appeared to have been settledto one about religious liberty.
