    Nurseries are encouraging children to question their gender by reading them stories that challenge male and female stereotypes. Books including characters who believe the are the wrong gender will be read to children as young as three after LGBT inclusion group Educate and Celebrate put them on nursery and primary school reading lists. One features a teddy bear named Thomas, who says 'in my heart, I've always known that I am a girl teddy', according to The Sunday Times. Educate and Celebrate, which was funded by the the Department for Education, has backed dozens of schools in adopting gender-neutral toilets...

    Trinity College Dublin, one of Ireland’s most prestigious universities, has announced that it will phase out use of the term “Freshman” in favor of the more gender-neutral “Fresh.” Currently, first and second year students at Trinity are referred to as “junior freshmen” and “senior freshmen.” The school’s Vice-Provost Chris Morash and Student Union President Kevin Keane shared the news in a mass email sent on Tuesday. They noted that the change stems from a proposal from Trinity’s Equality Committee that “the title given to first and second year undergraduates students be changed from ‘Freshman’ to the gender-neutral term ‘Fresh.’” […]...

    A new opinion piece in a Texas State University student newspaper tells white students, “Your DNA is an Abomination.”“When I think of all the white people I have ever encountered - whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friend, police officers, et cetera - there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,’” student author Rudy Martinez writes in the University Star. Without much biological explanation, Martinez informs white readers, “You were not born white. You became white… You don’t give a damn.” Later in his rant, he calls the police “fascist foot soldiers” and says a “white supremacist inhabits...

    Bret Weinstein is the former Evergreen State College biology professor who became the focus of a social justice witch hunt on campus earlier this year. Weinstein and his wife later sued for several million dollars but agreed to a settlement for $500,000 in exchange for leaving the school. All that to say, Weinstein is the voice of experience when it comes to the mob of social justice warriors on campus. In this brief interview recorded late last month, Weinstein argues several interesting points. First, he believes the social justice warriors are winning their battle to control campuses. “I don’t think...

    Felix Ngole was thrown off his social work course because of his beliefs on marriage. The message for Christians is starkFelix Ngole is a Christian who was thrown off a social work course at Sheffield University because he wrote on Facebook in 2015 that he supported the Kentucky registrar who had refused to handle gay marriages and provided a link to a biblical quotation. He lost an appeal that his rights to freedom of speech and thought had been breached. University bosses told the court that the issue was his “fitness to practise”. That should worry us, for it implies...

    We are beyond brainwashing now. We have reached the point of university instructors physically assaulting those who fail to conform to left-wing ideology: A University of Illinois graduate instructor was arrested for assaulting two students during an anti-Trump protest Thursday, stealing the phone of one student and throwing it on the sidewalk. Tariq Khan is a PhD candidate at the university and has taught courses such as “Constructing Race in America” and “U.S. Gender History since 1877.” He is also involved with various anarchist and communist organizations including Black Rose Anarchist Federation and Antifa, in addition to working with the...

    Outnumbered male college students in Texas have created a sharp gender gap in statewide completion rates – and, according to the state’s higher education commissioner, a campus cultural problem for men. “We’re getting to the point where males feel uncomfortable on some college campuses,” said Raymund Paredes, who leads Texas’ higher education coordinating board. Paredes spoke Thursday at the University of Houston System’s board meeting to address progress toward broader statewide goals of having 60 percent of young adults in Texas earn a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2030. He identified several target populations that are lagging in achieving those...

    Touting itself as "by teens, for teens," the magazine Sex, Etc. has created a stir at a middle school in New Jersey. Parents concerned about the magazine's explicit content are demanding that it be removed from the middle school's media center. The group of over sixty parents has the support of at least one school board member. According to wusa9, "school board member Stephen Kubricki urged the board on Monday to vote to remove the material from the junior high. Kubricki said the magazine contained 'a level of graphic and explicit images and text which goes beyond valuable information.'" The...

    A feminist professor at Occidental College recently argued that men must renounce their masculinity and “denounce anyone who chooses to identify with it.” Lisa Wade, a sociology professor at Occidental, published an essay for Public Books calling for people to “attack masculinity directly” to help the nation survive in the wake of President Trump, who she says perpetuates a “vile enactment of masculinity.”

    AntiFA terrorists marched with “No pedo bashing” signs with NAMBLA in New York tonight, showing once again just how sick and twisted liberal progressive Democrats really are. Mike Cernovich, often called a “white supremacist” by left wing terrorist Democrats gave a speech at Columbia in New York tonight. As expected, AntiFa left wing domestic terrorists were there cause trouble as they usually do. But a surprise guest of AntiFA made an appearance too. It was none other than the North America Man Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA for short. No pedo bashing sign, NAMBLA and AntiFA protest Mike Cernovich at...

    A Virginia middle school worksheet about the American political spectrum has angered some parents due to the fact that it identified the Ku Klux Klan as “right wing” and “reactionary.” The 8th grade handout from Loudoun County’s Harmony Middle School features examples ranging from “Radical” to “Reactionary,” with “Liberal,” “Moderate,” and “Conservative” in between. There’s also the labels “Left Wing” and “Right Wing” with the two major political parties in the middle of the two. The Klan was the only organization specifically aligned with a political designation. According to The Washington Post, school board member Eric J. DeKenipp said after...

    Georgetown’s website proclaims it is “the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institute of higher learning in the United States” and is “deeply rooted in the Catholic faith.” One campus group is learning, however, Georgetown’s roots might not be deep enough. Love Saxa is a recognized student group on the Georgetown campus, and it exists “to promote healthy relationships on campus through cultivating a proper understanding of sex, gender, marriage, and family among Georgetown students.” Given the emphasis the Catholic Church puts on these issues (for example, see here and here), and Love Saxa’s alignment with church doctrine, one might believe it...

The university’s faculty senate recently passed a resolution calling on campus leaders to consider renaming the two dorms because Stephen Douglas, a Democrat, famously advocated for slavery against Republican Abraham Lincoln in a series of debates.

    At Oxford, where the motto is, “The Lord is my Light.” Members of the Christian Union (CU) were banned from attending a freshman fair at the University of Oxford for fears that incoming students might face “potential harm” and feel unwelcome. According to Breitbart London, the university wanted to keep the freshers’ fair a “secular space” after concerns were raised by “student welfare representatives.” This was a strange turn of events for an institue established under Christianity. An internal e-mail explained the university’s reasoning: "We recognise the wonderful advantages in having CU representatives at the Fresher’s Fair, but are concerned...

    Besides defending his father, Trump Jr used much of his 35-minute address to mock the culture on most of the nation’s college campuses, which he said teaches young Americans to “hate their country” and “hate their religion” while squelching conservative voices. He noted instances where conservatives have been denied speaking opportunities or encountered protests upon their appearances. “Today’s conservative speech is violence. Unprovoked liberal violence is self-defense,” Trump Jr complained. “Words have lost their meanings.” He continued: “‘Hate speech’ is that America is a good country ... that we need borders ... anything that comes out of the mouth of...

    An Ontario elementary school removed a decades-old totem pole from outside its front entrance on Friday, after discovering that it was built without Indigenous input. Grade 6 students at Summitview Public School in Stouffville, Ont., about 50 kilometres north of Toronto, carved the totem pole in 1973. Former teacher Bernadine Mumford, who started the project, told the Stouffville Sun-Tribune it was a part of Canadian history exercise that focused on the “great harm” done to Indigenous peoples. “It bothered me that there was an implication it was racist,” she told the paper. After “community-based concerns” emerged about the structure, the...
