    A new Harvard University factsheet on gender dysphoria is urging students to "fight transphobia" by learning what the university claims are facts associated with the fluidity of gender. According to Campus Reform, the Ivy League school's Office of BLGTQ Student Life recently distributed a "fact sheet" to students on campus titled "Get the facts about gender diversity. Fight transphobia." The document begins by asserting that "sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same." "Sex assigned at birth, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life are...

    A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.”...

    The office of BGLTQ Student Life at Harvard University has released a new school-sponsored guide telling students to “fight transphobia” and “get the facts about gender diversity.” The guide, which was distributed to students on campus, declares that “there are more than two sexes” and that “gender is fluid and changing,” adding that someone’s gender identity “can be affirmed and/or expressed in many ways,” and can even “change from day to day.”

    Noted liberal Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe claimed without evidence in a series of tweets Thursday that a recently deceased New York judge was the victim of a racist murder. Sheila Abdus-Salaam was the first Muslim-American judge and the first black woman to serve on the New York Court of Appeals. Late Wednesday, her body was found in the Hudson River after she was reported missing. Abdus-Salaam was 65 years old.

  • Female Social Groups May Be Exempt from Harvard’s Punishment for Members of Single-Sex Clubs

    breitbart ^ | TOM CICCOTTA
    An update from the Harvard Crimson this week suggests that female students may be exempt from Harvard’s policy that members of single-sex social groups will be ineligible for some scholarships, fellowships, and leadership positions. According to the Crimson, members of all-female social groups will be permitted to remain in the group without fear of penalty, which will be strip members of gender-exclusive social clubs of the opportunity to apply for certain scholarships, fellowships, and leadership positions. Traditionally all-female final clubs and sororities will be allowed to retain their “gender focus” for the next few years — and potentially beyond that...

    Who scares you more: President Donald Trump or the Islamic State? For some Harvard University students, the U.S. president is the bigger threat. CampusReform.org conducted the survey among the Ivy League students this week to see if Trump was viewed as more of a danger to Americans than the terror organization. "We always see students that are saying everything threatens them in the world and they are always being taught by the media the sensationalist idea that everything Donald Trump does must be the end of the world," Cabot Phillips, a contributor at CampusReform.org, said Thursday on "Fox & Friends."Phillips...

    Styling themselves as characters from "Harry Potter," a group of Harvard students has launched the "Resistance School," a four-session program designed to teach techniques for challenging President Donald Trump's administration. Founded by former campaign staffers, organizers, and activists, the Resistance School aims to “sharpen the tools [necessary] to fight back at the federal, state, and local levels,” according to its website. Timothy P. McCarthy ’93, a lecturer on History and Literature and a lecturer on public policy at the Kennedy School, led the Resistance School’s first session Wednesday evening, delivering a lecture on “How to Communicate our Values in Political...

    Harvard University students have started a school to resist Donald Trump. The school, aptly named 'Resistance School,' isn't an official part of the college, nor will it get anyone Ivy League credits. But it does promise to teach activists how to 'resist' the president in a four-week course. It says its goal is to 'effectively fight Trump's agenda.' 'Resistance School is a free four-week practical training program that will sharpen the tools we need to fight back at the federal, state, and local levels. Our goal is to keep the embers of resistance alive through concrete learning, community engagement, and...

    When the University of Arizona started accepting a generic graduate school exam for law school applicants last year, the national group that oversees such admissions chastised the university and threatened to oust it from its membership. But now that Harvard, the gold standard, is following suit, there is growing hope that dropping the traditional Law School Admissions Test as a requirement for applicants across the country could lead to a larger and more diverse group of lawyers entering the field.

    You ever have one of those days when you can’t quite tell if something is satire or not? That’s what we’re going through right now. Normally you can check the source’s url—if it’s the Onion or some other funny-sounding publication, you can write it off as a joke and move on. But what happens when the source is the most prestigious university in the world? In case you missed it, the College’s Implementation Committee for the Policy on Membership in Single Gender Social Organizations (oh god we’re never writing that again) released its recommendations today.

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Matthew Muller was sentenced to 40 years in federal prison for a kidnapping so elaborate and outlandish that investigators first thought his victims were carrying out a bizarre hoax. The Harvard University-trained lawyer and former Marine who meticulously planned his attack was tripped up months later by a stupid mistake: He dropped his cellphone at a burglary scene. Here’s how it all went down: ___ THE ATTACK AND THE VICTIMS Denise Huskins and boyfriend Aaron Quinn told police they awoke about 3 a.m. March 23, 2015, in their Vallejo home northeast of San Francisco to find...

    Campus Stupidity of the Week: Goes to Harvard University, where officials announced yesterday that they are eliminating the term “freshman” – because, you know, it has “man” in it – and replacing it with the far more PC term, “first year”. As if this action weren’t stupid enough, Harvard’s leadership admitted that they had been fretting about what to do about this awful injustice “for years.” Really? With all the education-related issues going on in America these days, this is what you spend “years” worrying about? I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

    Harvard University has picked up on a Merrimack College professor’s list of “fake news” sites, including the Daily Caller, the Drudge Report, Breitbart News, the Washington Examiner, the Washington Free Beacon, Independent Journal Review (IJR), and even Bill Kristol’s relentlessly Never-Trump The Weekly Standard. FrontPage Mag, Jihad Watch, and Truth Revolt also make the list. It sure is great to have our intellectual betters at Harvard explain to us what are “illegitimate” sources of news, but there’s just one catch: the “fake news” list doesn’t contain even a single site that is the slightest bit Left of center. That’s...

Oddly, the left-wing news organizations and websites failed to make the list. What a shock. Doug Ross reported: Your betters at the Harvard University Library have published a guide to “Fake News Sites” that includes a bevy of real news sites that happen to lean right. Among them: the Heritage Foundation, Conservative Review, and Wikileaks, the latter of which has revealed (whether you agree with its approach or not) some very real news indeed.

    Two Harvard administrators have been accused of spending $110,000 set aside for disabled students on luxury electronic items including sex toys. Meg DeMarco and Darris Saylors both left their jobs after their new superior spotted the six-figure hole in the budget and lodged a police investigation. As well as phones, tablets and computers that were purchased by the pair, 32-year-old Saylors, who worked in the Dean Of Students' office, is accused of spending money on sex toys. DeMarco, 33, who worked at Harvard Law School as Director of Student Affairs from August 2008 until November 2013, was confronted at a...

    Harvard scientists triumphantly announced that they'd created metallic hydrogen last month, but now it's suddenly gone. Scientists hailed it as the “holy grail” of high pressure physics when they finally produced it in the lab: metallic hydrogen, a century after it was first theorized to exist. And now that sample, which had been held in a hyper refrigerated laboratory, has vanished into thin air, and scientists can’t figure out why. Reports indicate that the metallic hydrogen had been kept between a vice of two diamonds at huge pressures while being stored at 80 Kelvin, but something happened in the lab...

    A taxpayer-funded study set to find out if people can smell their own "asparagus pee." Researchers at Harvard on two active studies that received over $3 million last year surveyed nearly 7,000 people to determine if their urine smelled funny after eating the vegetable. The results were published in the BMJ scientific journal . . . The results concluded a "large proportion of individuals of European-American descent cannot smell ‘asparagus pee'—the unpleasant odor present in urine after people eat asparagus," according to the T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

    Here's why good Supreme Court justices, or, for that matter, attorneys in general, let alone attorneys general, are going to keep getting harder to find: Law schools going the way of the Modern Language Association (MLA). "The tendency toward designing a curriculum to suit the interests and eccentricities of law professors can be seen in the decline of the core law school curriculum, with its basic building block courses like Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Corporations, Criminal Law, Evidence, Professional Responsibility, Property, and Torts," Gail Heriot wrote late last year in a policy analysis for the Cato Institute. "That decline...
