  • Victor Davis Hanson: Regime Change by Any Other Name?

    NRO ^ | Victor Davis Hanson
    Election machines in three states were not hacked to give Donald Trump the election. There was never a serious post-election movement of electors to defy their constitutional duties and vote for Hillary Clinton. Nor, once Trump was elected, did transgendered people begin killing themselves in alarming numbers. Nor were there mass resignations at the State Department upon his inauguration. Nor did Donald Trump seek an order to “ban all Muslims” from entering the U.S. Instead, he temporarily sought a suspension in visas for everyone, regardless of religion, from seven Middle Eastern states that the Obama administration had earlier identified as...

    Video at link. A Kentucky appeals court has upheld the conscience rights of a Christian printer who refused to make shirts promoting a gay-pride festival. In the 2-1 decision handed down Friday, Chief Judge Joy A. Kramer said she found no evidence that the store owner “refused any individual the full and equal enjoyment of goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations it offered to everyone else because the individual in question had a specific sexual orientation or gender identity.” Blaine Adamson is the owner of Hands On Originals, a Christian company that prints messages on T-shirts, pens, mugs and...

    Those of us who fall on the right of the center of the political spectrum frequently find ourselves at a loss when trying to communicate with those who don't. Accordingly, we’ve come up with some tongue-in cheek conversational stratagems that will enable you to make small talk with true believers on the Left. You may want to try these out on hard-core conservatives first: If they guffaw, odds are, progressives won't: • What do you really think of Donald Trump? • Is homophobia the fear of homogenized milk? • Do misogynists actually give massages? • Is xenophobia the fear of...

    If progressives believe gender is fluid, then why not race? Philosophy professor Rebecca Tuvel touched off a firestorm of controversy this week with her paper “In Defense of Transracialism,” published in the feminist journal Hypatia. In it, Professor Tuvel argues that we ought to support those who identify with a racial group other than the one into which they were born just as we support transgender people.

    Shepard Smith, a Fox News anchor since 1996, revealed last week that he had no intention of opening up about his sexuality the way he did during an April speech at his alma mater.Speaking at a conference, Smith was tapped to talk on a panel titled “It Starts With MEek,” one that was meant to promote inclusivity and diversity. According to a report made by the Clarion-Ledger, Smith changed his speech at the last minute to reflect the crux of the conversation and decided to tell his own story of inclusivity and diversity.“It wasn’t until seven, or eight, or nine...

    Time was any person who declared himself perfect invited ridicule along with a suggestion he have his head examined. But those days apparently are long gone, at least according to the National Center for Lesbian Rights, which has recently declared there are classes of people who are born perfect, whose sexual and gender choices are infallible and therefore not to be subjected to anything resembling criticism, much less “conversion therapy.” A few years ago, NCLR began a campaign to end all conversion therapy, believing that attempts to change any youth’s sexual orientation or choice of gender invited irreparable psychological trauma,...

    Liberals can preach to me from their secular pulpits all they want about how Islam is a peaceful religion. This is yet another example of how it’s not. Chechnya has become a place of open genocide, particularly against the gay community (LGBT). According to the Daily Mail, Chechen authorities have told parents of gay children: “Either you kill them, or we will.” We constantly have to listen to the incessant meanderings of liberals of how evil the U.S. is toward gay people, but when you bring up the atrocities being perpetrated on gay populations in places such as Chechnya they’re...

    The newly-elected student government President and Vice President at Clemson University are already ruffling feathers with a proposal to institute mandatory LGBTQ “ally training” for faculty and staff. Student Body President Killian McDonald and Vice President Jaren Stewart ran on a platform that included a commitment to raising Clemson’s “Campus Pride Index” score, which currently stands at 1.5 stars out of a possible 5.0.

    It was a well-meaning campaign designed to address bullying of LGBT students in Australian schools. But a day after its high-profile launch - backed by some celebrities - the petition was withdrawn following a swirl of controversy. So what happened?On Tuesday the open letter, organised by a Sydney man, called on Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to commit A$6m (Ł4m; $4.5m) to funding a new anti-bullying programme. With a focus on LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender] issues in schools and domestic violence, the programme would target "all forms of bullying, including that which is based on religion, race, gender, faith,...

    A study conducted by former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, Paul McHugh, and a colleague of his, were blasted by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a group representing the LGBT community, the College Fix reported. The HRC knocked 25 points off JHU's rating on the Health Equality Index (HEI) the group compiles. The group wants the university to disavow the study. So far, the administrators have not done so. Nonetheless, three professors from JHU's Bloomberg School wrote an op-ed critical of the McHugh study which appeared in The Baltimore Sun. Also, a petition protesting the McHugh report is circulating at...

    Last week The Federalist reported on an illuminating segment from a mid-1990s episode of “Bill Nye the Science Guy” that clashes directly with modern transgender ideology. It appears that someone cut this segment from a re-release of the episode. In the clip reported on by The Federalist, pulled from the January 19, 1996 episode of the series, a young woman explains that “inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl.” She goes on to explain how we all receive sex chromosomes from both parents, leading to a...

    Article said Caitlyn Jenner used to be ‘Bruce,’ and that is ‘violence’ As we have documented before, all ideologies must fall before the gospel of transgenderism, even feminism. A journal of feminist philosophy, Hypatia, has issued an apology for publishing an article that compares transracial identity to transgender identity, following an outcry by pro-transgender philosophers.

    The title of this article is a bit on the misleading side, for which I apologize in advance. We’ve covered all manner of stories about the transgender debates sweeping the nation and at first glance that’s what this one looked like. There’s a bill under consideration in California which will allow official documents such as drivers licenses to offer three choices in the gender column. But this one has nothing to do with “choice” or political movements. It deals with a very real condition affecting a significant number of people and should be encouraged. (CBS Local) California would be...

In the letter, which was published in The Tiger, the coalition declares that “a permanent space must be allocated to the LGBTQ+ community” because “incoming LGBTQ+ and other underrepresented students enter campus with the deck stacked against them.”

    It’s “ethically inappropriate” for government and medical organizations to describe breastfeeding as “natural” because the term enforces rigid notions about gender roles, claims a new study in Pediatrics. “Coupling nature with motherhood… can inadvertently support biologically deterministic arguments about the roles of men and women in the family (for example, that women should be the primary caretaker,” the study says.
