    A new animated comedy will make history when it launches later this year as the first animated series to feature a transgender character in a lead role that is also voiced by a transgender actress, Julie Rei Goldstein.

It is being written and produced by Hayden Black, who is known for the award-winning and critically lauded show Goodnight Burbank. The series has a slew of popular Hollywood names attached...

    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...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., August 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Transgender people who want to join the military while presenting themselves as members of the opposite sex – and possibly receiving taxpayer-subsidized sex-change operations – may do so starting next May. According to a draft timeline recently circulated among top Department of Defense (DoD) personnel, the ban on "openly" transgender soldiers will be lifted on May 27, 2016. The DoD is considering a pilot program to let soldiers take a sabbatical from active service in order to "make their transition" – that is to say, procure hormone drugs or genital reconstruction surgery in...

    (CNSNews.com) – To help “create a classroom where students aren’t limited based on gender stereotypes,” teachers should address classes using words like “friends or “students” rather than girls and boys, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) advises in a new back-to-school guide.The first tip suggested by the HRC’s Welcoming Schools Initiative is for teachers to avoid using gender to “divide and address students.” The guide claims that separating students for activities according to gender “can leave some students feeling out-of-place, making them distracted or isolated and not able to focus on learning.”The guide recommends finding new, inventive ways of dividing students...

    August 18, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – People who suffer from gender confusion are encouraged by the current cultural climate to "be themselves," meaning reject the gender they were born with. "Transgender" teens are taught that what they feel is who they are and that to be happy and fulfilled, they must become the opposite sex. When Bruce Jenner decided to publicly look like a woman, he was supported by the mass media. Even the president of the United States, when Jenner decided to have castration surgery, applauded him as a "courageous" hero. But studies repeatedly show that "transgender" people who seek to...

    When director Roland Emmerich set out to create his upcoming film Stonewall, he was engaging in a labor of love. He desired to tell the very American story of standing up to power and demanding equal rights. What he could not have expected is that angry backlash and threats of boycotts would come, not from right-wing, religious zealots, but from the LGBT community itself. Now Emmerich stands accused of whitewashing and cis-washing the seminal event in gay-rights history. The allegation is that Emmerich, by choosing a white protagonist from middle America (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) to tell his story, is trying...

Iran is now the second-largest center for the procedure behind Thailand, according to some estimates. "Those decisions just...

Due to significantly higher sexual assault rates among this population in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, ICE established a working group to develop recommendations to address this very real and serious issue. However, Congress is pressuring DHS to release these individuals before the working groups recommendations have been reviewed.

By the time I got caught, I was wearing lipstick, costume jewelry, and high heels. My parents screamed at me and sent me to my room. They told me I was a boy and should not be dressing up like a girl. I remember being very angry and sad about this. My next door neighbors had a daughter a little older than me. I remember thinking she was so cool. She and...

    The Navy and Marine Corps have joined the Army and Air Force in making it harder to discharge transgender military members. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus signed a memorandum last Wednesday stating, "Effective immediately, separations initiated under the provisions of the reference for service members with a diagnosis or history of gender dysphoria, who identify themselves as transgender, or who have taken steps to externalize the condition, must be forwarded to the assistant secretary of the Navy (manpower and reserve affairs) for decision." The memo was directed to the chief of naval operations and commandant of the Marine Corps. Previously, discharge...

    TORONTO, July 7, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- As Ontario’s Ministry of Health plans measures to reduce the wait time for publicly funded sex-reassignment surgery (SRS), a well-regarded Toronto-based psychiatrist says the rush to provide these procedures is “absurd” and the push to increase their availability politically motivated.Citing an unnamed source “close to” Health Minister Eric Hoskins, Toronto’s Globe and Mail claimed on June 25, a day before the Toronto’s “Trans*Pride March” parade, that the ministry will increase the number of sites that can approve sex-reassignment surgeries, but it is “too early to tell where these will be.”Right now, only the Toronto-based...

    Some parents are preparing to transition their children from one gender to the other as early as pre-school. National Public Radio interviews one Oakland, Calif. family with a young child who started life out as Jack but became Jackie by age four.

    What would you do if your 3-year-old son told you assuredly that he wanted to be a girl? An Oakland, Cali. couple told their child it was OK, and a sad boy become a joyful little girl. It's controlled after-school anarchy at the Christian-Carter household. Seven-year-old Chloe has rolled herself up in an exercise mat in the living room of the family's lovely Oakland, Calif., home. "Look I'm a burrito," Chloe shouts. Her 4-year-old sister, Jackie, swoops in for a bite and a hard push. "Ow!" Chloe shouts. "Mom! Jackie pushed me!" Just two sisters playing, occasionally sparring, as...

    California keeps reminding us what has gone astray with America in recent years. The state is in the midst of a crippling four-year-old drought. Yet California has built almost no major northern or central mountain reservoirs since the New Melones Dam of 1979. That added nearly 3 million acre-feet to the state's storage reserves -- a critical project that was almost canceled by endless environmental lawsuits and protests. Although California has almost doubled in population since the dam's construction, its politicians apparently decided that completing more northern and Sierra Nevada water projects was pass. So the parched state now prays...

    Lost in the celebrations over universal gay marriage, like abortion, being deemed a right found in the penumbras and emanations of the Constitution is the chilling effect the ruling has on religious liberty. In a telling exchange between the Obama administrations Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli, Jr. and Justice Samuel Alito, detailed by Tom Blumer at Newsbusters.com, in which Verrilli admitted that churches could lose their tax exemptions if they refuse to perform gay weddings: Justice Alito: Well, in the Bob Jones case, the Court held that a college was not entitled to taxexempt status if it opposed interracial marriage...

    On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case to determine whether the Constitution requires states to issue same-sex marriage licenses and requires other states to honor same-sex marriages performed in those states. A primary argument by the plaintiffs is that gay marriage is covered under the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment and that if straights can marry, then so can gays. The counterargument is that marriage is a privilege and not a right, a union of one man and one woman sanctioned over millennia by virtually every culture and country over time as the stable...

    This is a disturbing, or perhaps better described as heartbreaking story which popped up this weekend and set off all sorts of alarm bells for me. NBC News is featuring the tale of a child named Lia (until recently, Liam) who is being fully encouraged and supported by his parents on a “journey” to become a girl. The child is ten years old and began this “trip” at the age of five. We moved from Indiana to New Hampshire when Lia was 4. She was still wearing boys’ clothes and playing with trucks through preschool, but she really wanted girl...
  • State Department Officially Calls Irans Forced Sex Change Surgeries Confirmation

    A report issued Thursday by the Department of State repeatedly refers to sex reassignment surgery in Iran as gender-confirmation surgery. Iran has a well-documented record of coercing gay and lesbian people into having the gender reassignment surgery, that is, disrupting rather than confirming the gender identity of hundreds per year. Since homosexuality can be punishable by death in Iran, known homosexual men tend to accept the government-subsidized surgery to become women, and vice versa. By referring to the surgeries as gender confirmation, rather than the much more widespread and morally neutral sex reassignment surgery, the State Department seems to be...

    Aiming to curb gender bias and harassment in New York City, officials are readying a plan that would require businesses to convert some restrooms to gender-neutral facilities. Legislation is being introduced that would require publicly available, single-occupancy restrooms in both public and private buildings to be designated as gender-neutral. It would also amend the language of some city laws, including the plumbing code, which requires separate lavatories for men and women. This is a very important issue, said New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer, whose office is releasing a report Friday recommending the changes. Its time to help individuals who...
