  • Unlucky-in-love transgender woman reveals she's rejected by straight men because she still has [tr]

    A transgender woman trying to find love has told how she is rejected by straight men for having 'male parts' and was even called an 'abomination' by her own father. Claire Green, 20, from Virginia, says she has no problem meeting men but they often disappear once they find out she used to be a boy. After transitioning over a year ago, she found the courage to go to the beach in a bikini for the first time on BBC Three documentary, Young, Trans And Looking For Love which airs on Monday.

    Rachel, you recently took strong exception to what has been referred to as a "kill the gays" rally, and I want to stand with you in renouncing this kind of rhetoric in the strongest possible terms, especially since this was a Christian-based rally. To say this with absolutely clarity, it is not Christian in any shape, size, or form to provoke hatred towards gays or lesbians or, worse still, to suggest that they should be mistreated or, God forbid, executed. It is true that there are some professing Christians who believe gays should be killed, but they are no different...

    Two of America's three branches of federal government have declared war on parental authority. President Obama's Department of Education has been explicitly attacking schools that have the audacity to prefer traditional morality. However, making sense of the Education Department's actions requires looking at the Obergefell same-sex "marriage" decision. The Obergefell decision explains why the Department of Education will not stop until it has eliminated parental authority to teach traditional morality to their children...

    Supporters of Houston’s “Equal Rights” Ordinance (HERO) are predictably crying foul after voters resoundingly rejected their ballot measure last week. Apparently it lost only because bigots poisoned the debate with “misinformation.” Sore losers that they are, its proponents can’t accept that the voters understood what was at stake and voted accordingly. The ordinance prohibited discrimination based upon a number of protected categories, most of which were uncontroversial and already covered by state and federal laws. That was the window dressing. The real issue concerned banning discrimination based on the amorphous social construct known as “sexual orientation” and the even more...

    For some time now I've been saying that gay activists will overplay their hand and that the bullying will backfire. I've also said that we can outlast the gay revolution and ultimately, by God's grace, turn the moral tide in America. Of course, to speak like that is to invite all kinds of scorn and ridicule, not to mention the ugliest death wishes you could imagine. How dare we not roll over and die!But events from the last 7 days remind us that, even though the cultural battles promise to be long and difficult, many Americans are ready to push...

    A few locusts were crushed under the boot of American Exceptionalism last Tuesday. The creeps in Houston, who wanted disturbed men to have access to women's bathrooms, were defeated by a 24-point margin (although it may well be argued the 38 percent who supported such a ballot measure in a major American city is cause enough to lower the flag to half staff). And two city council women in my home state of Iowa were thrown out of office after voting to remove a Veterans' Memorial cross from a public park. Two locusts do not a swarm make, though, so...

    The call for "violence against objects" culminated in physical violence (including murders) in Germany in the 1970s. What has happened in the last two weeks against two well-known pro-family activists in Germany, is showing worrying parallels. On October 14th, a play called FEAR premiered in Berlin. In it, people known for publically speaking out against the sexualization of children and gender ideology are the protagonists: Birgit Kelle, Gabriele Kuby, Hedwig von Bevoerfoerde, Beatrix von Storch and Frauke Petry. Actors appear on stage under their names with pictures of them covering their faces, behaving as hateful and aggressive zombies. Two people...

    American Christians have become a lot more tolerant of homosexuality over the past eight years, according to a landmark study released by the Pew Research Center on Tuesday that showed big gains in acceptance since the last time the study was conducted in 2007. The 2014 Religious Landscape Study, a survey of more than 35,000 Americans, examined a vast array of religious and social issues, including immigration. The study concluded that nearly all major religious groups have become significantly more accepting of homosexuality -- and almost all Christian groups are more accepting than they were in 2007. It holds true...

    (CNSNews.com) – The Department of Education’s Office of the General Council and the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division filed a brief Wednesday evening in support of Gavin Grimm, a biological female who “identifies” as a male. Grimm filed a lawsuit in June against the Gloucester County School Board in Virginia for access to the boys’ restroom. “Prohibiting a transgender male student from using boys’ restrooms, when other non-transgender male students face no such restriction, deprives him not only of equal educational opportunity but also ‘of equal status, respect, and dignity,’” the DOE and DOJ attorneys argue in the brief. “Treating...

    The father of Sen.

You have to basically throw away the statutory rape laws to legalize pedophilia.” Rafael Cruz, a pastor, made the remarks at the World Congress of Families, an annual gathering of social conservatives held this year in Salt Lake City.

At the Southern Evangelical Seminary's annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics, Turek hosted a panel discussion on marriage titled "What Do We Do Now?" in which he asserted that Christians and supporters of traditional marriage have to make broader arguments about its benefits to society and family. "We can't let it all just be about religious liberty, because if we don't make the arguments that we are arguing for the good of all society...

    A new commercial from Camden-based Campbell's Soup Company features two fathers feeding their son 'Star Wars'-themed soup has come under fire from critics, but the company says it was creating a real reflection of the American family in the contemporary United States. The commercial, a promotion ahead of the December release of 'The Force Awakens,' shows the fathers riffing on Darth Vader's bombshell 'Star Wars' quote: "I am your father!" The company developed the idea as part of its "Made for Real, Real Life" campaign, a tagline that aims to capture what's going on people's lives when they eat soup,...

    Many women are afraid to take estrogen during menopause because of the well-documented cancer risk. But one woman is being applauded on social media for giving her son estrogen so he can live his childhood fantasy of being a girl. The poor boy in the video is going to go through life with artificially induced breasts...and a penis. No woman is going to want him. His only chance for companionship will be through anal sex with men. He will go through life scaring girls in locker rooms and alienating himself, and being alienated, from society. And that's the best-case scenario,...

    California is first in the nation to agree to pay for a transgender inmate's sex reassignment operation, but the state's settlement of a recent court case sidesteps the question of whether such surgery is a constitutional right. The state concedes that Shiloh Quine, who entered the California prison system in 1980 as Rodney, suffers severe gender dysphoria that can be treated only by physically conforming her body to her psychological gender." The agreement to settle Quine's federal lawsuit seeking the surgery was announced late Friday, with a brief statement from the corrections department that "every medical doctor and mental health...

    Transgenders have high levels of mental-health problems such as depression, resulting in increased levels of self-injury and suicidal ideation (thoughts, attempts, and rates), finds a September study from the highly respected Nottingham Centre for Gender Dysphoria in the United Kingdom. The center reviewed 31 papers to arrive at that conclusion. This is probably not the trans civil rights problem recent Emmy winner Jill Soloway meant when accepting her award for directing a comedy show sponsored by Amazon that features a transgender character. But statistics show it deserves to be. If we examine the medical definition of self-injury, we get...

President Obama and Pope Francis may be sympatico on climate change, capitalism, and other far-left issues, but when it comes to the teachings of the Catholic Church, they don't agree on much. The president will put this to the test, because he has invited a pro-abortion nun, a gay bishop, and a transgender female to the White House to meet the pontiff.

    Rowan County, Ky., is a lesson for America in how not to resolve social conflict. The local head clerk is sitting in jail, and a judge has ordered her deputy clerks to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in her absence.When the Supreme Court redefined marriage for the nation in an activist decision this June, it took the issue out of the democratic process and made it much harder for citizens to navigate our differences on this fundamental institution. Both sides of the debate knew the decision would have significant social effects. For civil servants like clerks who issue marriage...

    The left is going bananas over Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis and her refusal to issue marriage licenses to gays. They applaud the heavy hand of the government and rejoice that a judge has taken the extraordinary step of having her placed behind bars, guarded by U.S. Marshals. The double standard revealed her is astonishing. Now keep in mind that gay marriage is in no way every mentioned in the constitution. Nor is marriage generally. But the 2nd Amendment makes it abundantly clear that every American has a right to keep and bear arms. There is no question on this. None...

    Up until now, apologists for the militant homosexual/transgender movement have aggressively insisted that Christians (and others standing in opposition) will still be free to live their faith and conscience in the wake of the Supreme Courts illegal imposition on our nation of same-sex marriage. This is a lie. The militant homosexualist movement cannot, and will not, coexist with those who stand against its tyrannical agenda. In fact, Christian freedom is a specific target of these homosexualists who despise God, His Word and His people. On Monday the Supreme Court gave us another proof of this when it rejected the appeal...

    Over 150 students at a Missouri high school walked out of class Monday and staged a two-hour protest to voice their disapproval with a transgender student's request to use the girls' locker room to change for her physical education class. After dozens of parents showed up to a school board meeting at Hillsboro High School last Thursday to discuss their concerns over a senior transgender student's desire to use the girls' locker room and bathrooms, students and parents took to the school's parking lot on Monday to tell administrators they won't allow girls' privacy rights to be infringed upon to...

    The Lexington Herald-Leader ^ | September 1, 2015 | JOHN CHEVES
    A federal judge has ordered Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and her deputies to appear in his courtroom Thursday and explain why Davis should not be held in contempt of court for refusing to issue marriage licenses. Shortly after opening her doors Tuesday, Davis told two same-sex couples who asked for marriage licenses that she would not issue them, despite a federal court injunction ordering her to do so. (snip) Davis, an Apostolic Christian, has refused to issue any marriage licenses in Rowan County since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage June 26. U.S. District Judge David Bunning issued...

    Carly Fiorina says that while we need to passionately protect religious liberty, it is inappropriate for a Kentucky county clerk to continue to refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses against a court order, because she is a government worker. Carly says the clerk needs to do the governments will and issue the licenses or quit and move to another job where religious liberty is more paramount. She says it inappropriate for this clerk to practice civil disobedience as a government employee. Listen:

    Via the Examiner, I’d do what they say. In our alarming new culture of rage against microaggressions, doing otherwise might get you shot.Rather than make brutish assumptions that someone who looks like a boy is a boy and someone who looks like a girl is a girl, the campus diversity office recommends starting the semester by asking everyone to provide their names “and pronouns.” Or better yet, why not just use new pronouns that are gender-neutral? It’ll spare you an ephemeral awkward moment when you happen to encounter someone from the tiny fraction of the tiny fraction of the...

    Pope Francis has sent his blessing to a lesbian author of children's books dealing with same-sex families, wishing her and her wife well in their work, it emerged on Friday. As Vatican officials scrambled to clarify that the message was simply a standard courtesy which did not signal any change in Church teaching on the subject, the author told AFP she had been pleasantly surprised to have received such a positive response. Francesca Pardi, who writes and publishes books such as "Why you have two mummies", wrote to Francis in June after the publishing company she runs with her wife...

    I've already written about the Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume before, but that was before we got a chance to see the actual costume! For just a moment, look at what the LGBT reaction shows about the radical Left. After educating us that men can "feel" like a woman at any time in their lives you would think they would support such an effort on Halloween. Think of it as a one-night trial run! But liberals are incensed even by the very description of the product: The Jenner costume comes with a white padded top, matching shorts, a brunette wig,...

    LOS ANGELES, CA, August 25, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The GOP's leading presidential candidate said that he has been to a gay "wedding" and that conservatives should accept the Supreme Court's redefinition of marriage. In a wide-ranging interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Donald Trump was asked whether the issue of marriage's redefinition is "a dead issue for the GOP at this point." "Some people have hopes of passing amendments [to the U.S. Constitution]," said Trump, "but it's not going to happen. Congress can't pass simple things, let alone that. So anybody that's making that an issue is doing it for political...

    With homosexual and transgender issues always at the forefront, whether we like it or not, it's a relief to know that now your kids will have a gender-fluid option for this coming Halloween: Halloween probably isnt the best time to deal with an incredibly sensitive subject like gender reassignment. But that hasnt deterred a major company from conjuring up a Caitlyn Jenner costume in time for Oct. 31. Spirit Halloween, the company behind the pop-up costume stores that appear all over the city every fall, has exclusively confirmed to Confidenti@l that it will be carrying the insensitive getup this year....
