    New York City Council just barred adults from getting the sex therapy they seek — unless it agrees with the personal views of members of the council. The ‘Politically Correct Express’ Earlier this month, councilmembers passed a law banning professional therapists from counseling focused on changing a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. They added a huge exception to the law, however. The exception allowed the therapy as long as it’s aimed at “exploration and development” of a homosexual identity. It was also allowed for changing from sex-at-birth to a transgender identity. In New York City, this train goes only...

    A Pentagon official tells The Associated Press that transgender people can enlist in the military beginning Jan. 1, despite President Donald Trump's opposition. The new policy reflects growing legal pressure on the issue and the difficult hurdles the federal government would have to cross to enforce Trump's demand to ban transgender individuals from the military. Two federal courts already have ruled against the ban. Potential transgender recruits will have to overcome a lengthy and strict set of physical, medical and mental conditions that make it possible, though difficult, for them to join the armed services. Maj. David Eastburn says the...

    As a mom of three young kids, I’m careful about what they’re exposed to on television, and I screen the shows they watch to confirm they reflect our family values of respect and courteousness. That’s why my kids are banned from watching the Disney Channel. The Disney Channel and its spin-off, Disney XD, are no longer “safe spaces” for kids. The kid characters on Disney’s shows are often mouthy and disrespectful to parents and authority figures (who are usually scripted as muddle-headed and embarrassingly square). Even many of the strange animated characters make crass and nasty comments. Shockingly, both my...

    Washington (AFP) - President Donald Trump's administration has asked a federal court to block the Pentagon from starting the hiring of transgender recruits next year. The filing by the Justice Department late on Wednesday is the latest in a series of legal measures that have unfolded since Trump sent out three tweets in July saying that transgender troops could not serve "in any capacity" in the military. Those tweets, later followed by a formal White House memorandum, set off a roar of protest -- with several service members and rights groups quick to sue. Two federal courts have since temporarily...

    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...

    Once you embrace the progressive premise that the ends justify the means the destruction of civilization follows on quickly.First you have the feminist’s opinion that it doesn’t matter if men are falsely accused of sexual abuse as long as it helps dismantle “the patriarchy” – as if patriarchy is a real thing in 21st Century America, home of the fatherless family. Next thing you know the NYTimes posits that it’s okay to sexualize children for the cause of genderqueer. Meanwhile an Indiana University Healthcare system nurse believes that “white women raise terrorist, rapist, racist, killer sons” and thinks that they...

    A federal jury has awarded a transgender woman more than $1 million after finding Southeastern Oklahoma State University discriminated against her and wrongfully denied her tenure. Jurors sided with former English professor Rachel Tudor on Monday, The Oklahoman newspaper reported. Her lawsuit alleged the university treated her differently than non-transgender professors, including by subjecting her to unfair rules about bathroom use and what she could wear on campus. “I tried not to make a big deal of it. I just wanted to do my job,” Tudor testified during the trial. Tudor also alleged the school’s tenure committee voted in favor...

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson released a statement marking Monday Transgender Day of Remembrance. Tillerson’s statement condemned the violence against transgender individuals, saying that they “should not be subjected to violence or discrimination.” “Transgender individuals and their advocates, along with lesbian, gay, bisexual and intersex persons, are facing increasing physical attacks and arbitrary arrests in many parts of the world,” Tillerson wrote. “Often these attacks are perpetrated by government officials, undermining the rule of law.” Transgender Day of Remembrance has been commemorated on Nov. 20 for nearly 20 years, and the White House began participating in 2012, according to GLAAD....

    Maura Pfefferman’s journey has come to a premature end. Jeffrey Tambor has announced that he will not return to Transparent for its upcoming fifth season. He issued the following statement to our sister site Deadline: Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life. What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago. I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea...

    PORTLAND, Ore.–Parents at a rural Oregon high school have filed a federal lawsuit over the school district's policy to allow a transgender male student to use the boys' locker room and bathroom, mirroring a similar civil action in Illinois that did not survive a legal challenge. The lawsuit filed this week in Portland challenges a decision by the Dallas School District to allow Elliot Yoder, now 16, to use boys' facilities.(snip) "The case targets transgender youth for simply existing and seeking an education," said Mat dos Santos, legal director for ACLU Oregon. "This lawsuit is senseless and cruel but it...

    Democrat Danica Roem defeated incumbent Del. Robert G. Marshall (R) on November 7 and became Virginia’s first openly transgender elected official.Roem’s fundraising numbers more than doubled Marshall’s, in part due to nationwide support from pro-LGBT groups, including the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Roem’s top donor, who individually contributed $180,000 (almost a quarter of the total raised), was Chris Abele, a major contributor to liberal causes and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) advocacy groups.The political power of the LGBTQ rainbow carried the day in electing Roem. If the candidate had been Dan Roem, few across the nation would have noticed...

    A transgender inmate in Massachusetts, who identifies as a woman, has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the prison alleging that she was unjustly housed at the male facility and has suffered harassment from guards and prisoners during her time there, a report said. The Massachusetts Department of Corrections is being sued by the unidentified 52-year-old inmate who currently is housed in the MCI-Norfolk all-male prison and wants to be moved to MCI-Framingham, the women’s prison, the Boston Globe reported.

    Sex reassignment is as natural as being born, some in the media tell us. And many Americans are buying it. But a growing chorus of dissenters made up of physicians, researchers, and even transgender individuals is beginning to paint a far different picture of the truth. These dissenters are now coming forward to expose just how harmful gender transition and reassignment are—both medically and sociologically speaking. First, consider recent revelations about how problematic sex reassignment surgery is as a therapy for gender dysphoria. In an interview with The Telegraph, world-renowned genital reconstructive surgeon Miroslav Djordjevic said his clinics are experiencing...

    Minneapolis has elected two black transgender representatives to its City Council, adding to what advocacy groups have described as a banner election for transgender people in public office. Andrea Jenkins easily won the race Tuesday night for an open seat in south Minneapolis, with roughly 73 percent of the vote. Jenkins, a 56-year-old poet and historian who transitioned in her 30s, spent years as a policy aide to two previous council members in the same ward. Phillipe Cunningham’s victory took longer because of Minneapolis’ instant-runoff voting system. But by Wednesday afternoon, the city announced Cunningham — a 29-year old transgender...

    Germany’s top court on Wednesday required parliament to legally recognize a “third gender” from birth, potentially making it the first European country to offer intersex people the option of identifying as neither male nor female. Current regulations on civil status are discriminatory against intersex people, the Federal Constitutional Court said, noting that the sexual identity of an individual is protected as a basic right. Legislators must by the end of 2018 pass a new regulation to offer a third gender option in birth registers, the court added, ruling in favour of an appeal brought by an intersex person. In the...

The marquee race has national ramifications as a test for the Republican Party and their combative leader, and Democrats came out on top
