    “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.” ~ Voltaire School administrators and board members terrified of expensive lawsuits are capitulating to the demands of gender confused adolescents. Parents are capitulating to the disordered thinking of their children, terrified that if they don’t, their children will commit suicide. Their fears are stoked by a deeply flawed study that is grossly misunderstood. Academia, the arts, and the professional medical and mental health communities are controlled by Leftists who affirm the nonsensical “trans” ideology. And the mainstream press—not known for deep thinking—swallows and regurgitates any Leftist nonsense that...

    Compared to states, the District ranks No. 2 for the percentage of adults who consume alcohol and No. 1 for the percentage of heavy drinkers, according to Detox.net, an online resource for alcohol abuse treatment programs. According to the study, 65.9 percent of adults in D.C. have had at least one drink in the past month, second only to Wisconsin’s 67.3 percent. The study was based on data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, which collects health-related data from phone interviews. The study also says 11.1 percent of D.C. adults are what it...

    Pink has opened up about how she’s raising her kids as gender neutral, and shared what she really thinks of Donald Trump. The “Beautiful Trauma” singer told The People that she does not want to impose traditional gender roles on her two children, six-year-old daughter Willow and 11-month-old son Jameson. “We are a very label-less household,” the pop star said of her family with motorcycle racer Carey Hart. “Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like: ‘Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’” Pink said. “And she’s like: ‘Sure...

    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...

    "Simon Sinek speaking about Millennials in the workplace of today, and social media addiction. IT IS ONE OF THE BEST SPEECHES THAT I’VE EVER HEARD." This youtube video is about 18 minutes long and is full of insightful observations regarding the challenges business has when managing the Millennial generation. Much of what he talks about many HR people and business managers have experienced and are trying to come to not only terms with this generation, but having to teach them a lot about how the world really works. I encourage anyone who cares to watch it...watch until the very end....

    "Keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe from harm is perhaps our strongest human motivation, deeply embedded in our very DNA. It is so deep and important that it influences much of what we think and do, maybe more than we might expect. For example, over a decade now of research in political psychology consistently shows that how physically threatened or fearful a person feels is a key factor — although clearly not the only one — in whether he or she holds conservative or liberal attitudes."

    It's an elemental fact that people increasingly don't want to hear: Sex differences in personality and behavior are real. And they have a profound effect on many aspects of health. .... ...It's time for a grown-up conversation about sex. No, not that one. The other one, about the minds of men and women. Converging lines of empirical evidence—from developmental neuroscience, medical genetics, evolutionary biology, cross-cultural psychology, and new studies of transsexuality—along with our evolutionary heritage, all point to the same conclusion: There are psychological differences between men and women. And they affect matters as trivial as sensitivity to smelly socks...

    Thanksgiving began in 1621 when the Pilgrims invited the Wampanoag Indians to join them in celebration of the fall harvest. The Pilgrims had fled religious persecution in England a year earlier and had lost many of their group during the travels overseas and subsequent harsh winter. After harvest, they paused to thank God. The Indians traveled for several days to join them, created their own camp and stayed for three days of feasting and celebration. The holiday received official status in 1789, with George Washington's first presidential proclamation, which designated the 26th day of November next to be set aside...

    At the next table in the cafe where I was working this morning, a young woman spent a whole hour talking excitedly to her older companion about herself, her hopes and aspirations for her job, her romantic relationship and her home. It was hard to avoid the impression that she thought herself the centre of the Universe, her dreams eminently fascinating and important. Is this simply what young people or “millennials” (people born after 1980) are like these days? Fuelled by the endless opportunity for self-promotion and self-reflection on social media, combined with a wider culture that’s arguably placed greater...

    Robin Teresa Beck, 59, lived through 12 lesbian relationships over the course of 35 years before her dramatic conversion to the Catholic faith and healing from homosexuality, just five years ago. Read LifeSiteNews’ coverage of Robin’s dramatic story here. Read the full interview here. Beck spoke with LifeSiteNews over the phone from her home in Michigan in the Detroit area about everything from the impossibility of creating a healthy gay relationship, to why lesbian relationships can never fulfill the emotional needs of women, to how she believes God looks on people struggling with homosexuality, to how the Church should approach...

    ---SNIP--- Considering most people’s earliest memories don’t start until around the age of four, it would be easy to assume that Sharrock’s description was a nostalgic daydream, rather than a real memory. But then again, the 27-year-old from Brisbane, Australia doesn’t have a memory like most people – she has been diagnosed with a rare syndrome called ‘Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory’, or HSAM, also known as hyperthymesia. This unique neurological condition means that Sharrock can recall every single thing she did on any given date.

    Researchers at the University of Connecticut in the US tracked the effect of teenage alcohol and marijuana use on the achievement of life goals, defined as educational achievement, full time employment, marriage and social economic potential. The study included 1,165 young adults from across the US whose habits were first assessed at age 12 and then at two- year intervals until they were between 25 and 34 years old. ... Overall, individuals who were dependent on either marijuana or alcohol during their teen years achieved lower levels of education, were less likely to be employed full time or get married...

    The Conversation ^ | Oct 29, 2017 | T.O. Afifi, E. Romano
    The research clearly shows that spanking is related to an increased likelihood of many poor health, social and developmental outcomes. These poor outcomes include mental health problems, substance use, suicide attempts and physical health conditions along with developmental, behavioural, social and cognitive problems. Equally important, there are no research studies showing that spanking is beneficial for children. Those who say spanking is safe for a child if done in a specific way are, it would seem, simply expressing opinions. And these opinions are not supported by scientific evidence.

    The reflective Mary Eberstadt has the latest Weekly Standard cover story, asserting that the late rise of identity politics especially among the young descends from the decline in family, despite myriad other theories. An excerpt: Maybe that cultural scream of ‘mine!’ is issuing from souls who did have something taken from them—only something more elemental than the totemic objects now functioning as figurative blankies for lost and angry former children. As of today, less than 65 percent of American children live with both biological parents, even as other familial boughs have broken via external forces like the opioid crisis, criminality...

    Humans love dogs more than their fellow man. Two major studies showed that mankind has more empathy for pooches in dire circumstances than suffering people, according to a report in the Times of London. A UK medical research charity staged two phony donation campaigns – one with a dog and the other featuring a man. Of course, the pooch drew more contributions. “Would you give pounds 5 to save Harrison from a slow, painful death?” the separate ads said, featuring a canine and human “Harrison.” Then a Northeastern University study showed that only a baby human could compete with man’s...

    A recent study of the behavior of Tinder users says the app allegedly reinforces “ancient mating behaviour” because -- shockingly -- women want high-status men and men want good-looking women. The Scotsman reports psychologists at the University of Aberdeen studied the Tinder behavior of 20-somethings and found that men wanted women who were physical attractive, while women sought out signifiers of status, such as “good career prospects, stability and intelligence.” Dr Mirjam Brady-Van den Bos said the results reveal “we haven’t really changed in all those millennia of evolution.” “Tinder is seen as a sophisticated but artificial way of meeting...

    The FBI released more than 1,500 pages of heavily-redacted documents Tuesday related to the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting the files shedding light on the relationship between gunman Adam Lanza and his mother prior to the deadly massacre. The documents, posted on the federal agency’s archive page, on the rampage in Newtown, Conn. that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead, include redacted grand jury subpoenas and reports by agents who interviewed people about Lanza. In one interview, an unidentified person told an FBI agent that Lanza’s mother, Nancy, was concerned about him a month before the shooting because he...

    A group of psychologists and mental health professionals on Saturday marched through New York calling for President Trump to be removed from office. The group — which included more than 100 psychologists and mental health professionals — are pushing for Trump to be ousted from his post, according to The New York Post. “We can sense the power of Trump’s underlying fear that he is worthless and weak by how intensely he resists and retaliated against any criticism,” said Harry Segal, a Cornell University psychologist. “No matter how minor, he can’t let anything go.” Michelle Golland, a clinical psychologist, told...
