    An all-Navy message sent out Tuesday says that all sailors will be required to undergo transgender behavioral education by July 2017. Starting Nov. 1, the training will educate sailors about the Navy’s new transgender policy that allows transgenders to serve in the military, Military.com reported. “This training will emphasize policies and expectations of personal behavior,” the message states. It is unclear what exactly is in these training sessions yet, but the Navy will soon send out messages with more information. In the meantime, leadership is putting together a commander’s tool kit that will guide training, said Lt. Jessica Anderson, a spokeswoman...

    >>> To all Free Republic members who are not aware of who Ryan McElveen is, he is a leftist school board member in Fairfax County Virginia, which is in the top 10 largest school districts nationally. He is behind the Fairfax transgender policy, which allows students and teachers to use whichever locker room, bathroom, or shower they wish, based on their current "gender identity." He also attempted to push through a policy that would censor all student speech, both in and out of school, that criticizes the LGBTQAAIABCXYZ agenda. >>> Ryan McElveen has long been considered a "social justice warrior."...

    When our son turned 6, my husband and I bought him a puppet theater and a chest of dress-up clothes because he liked to put on plays. We filled the chest with 20 items from Goodwill, mostly grown-man attire: ties, button-down shirts, a gray pageboy cap and a suit vest. But we didnt want his or his castmates creative output to be curtailed by a lack of costume choices, so we also included high heels, a pink straw hat, a dazzling fairy skirt and a sparkly green halter dress. He was thrilled with these presents. He put on the sparkly...

    Recently, the Virginia Supreme Court agreed to hear a lawsuit filed against FCPS by the conservative organization Liberty Counsel, which represented an anonymous FCPS student and his/her parents. The student alleges that his/her civil rights were violated by the FCPS policies that allow individuals to use restrooms, locker rooms, and showers based on their "gender identity", not their actual, physical, gender. According to the Liberty Counsel, the FCPS policy constitutes an invasion of privacy. The lawsuit was appealed from the Fairfax Circuit Court, where Judge Brett Kassabian dismissed it on procedural grounds. However, the Virginia Supreme Court disagreed with the...

    A group of students and parents from Minnesota filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the federal government and their school district for allowing a transgender student who was born male but identifies as female into the girls locker rooms, showers, and restrooms. The lawsuit is the latest in a series of challenges to the Obama administrations bathroom mandate issued in May that requires public schools and universities nationwide to give transgender students full access to school facilities based on their gender identity instead of their biological sex. Schools that do not comply with the administrations guidance could face legal action or...

Manning, 28, who is serving time in a federal prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, said in a statement released by her supporters that she will consume only water and prescription medicines starting Friday morning, and will forgo voluntarily cutting her hair. The incarcerated soldier said her protest is aimed at prompting officials to recognize her need for treatment, especially with respect to gender dysphoria,...

Yoweri Museveni, the president of Uganda, had been issuing a series of anti-gay tirades, and partially fueled by anti-gay religious figures from the U.S. was considering toughening Ugandas anti-gay laws. The rhetoric was getting out of control: The commercialisation of homosexuality is unacceptable, said Simon Lokodo, Ugandas ethics minister. If they were doing it in their own rooms we wouldnt mind, but when they go for children, thats not fair. They are beasts of the forest. Eventually, Museveni said...

Such is the theory of a New York Times article by Rabbi Mark Sameth, Is God Transgender? (Aug 12, 2016). Sameth claims that the Hebrew Bible, when read in its original language, offers a highly elastic view of gender.In Genesis 3:12, Eve is referred to as he. In Genesis 9:21, after the flood, Noah repairs to her tent. Genesis 1:27 refers to Adam as them. These minor textual oddities...

A federal judge ruled Friday that two students and an employee must be allowed to use restrooms matching their gender identity at University of North Carolina campuses, and he said they have a strong chance of proving the state's bathroom-access measure violates federal law. U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder temporarily blocked the University of North Carolina from making the three plaintiffs follow the restroom provision of the so-called HB2 law as the larger case makes its way to trial in November. His final decision on the law won't come until after trial. Passed in March, HB2 requires...

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in a Texas federal court, attempts to roll back a rule imposed by the Department of Health and Human Services in May that expanded the interpretation of sex under the Affordable Care Act to include gender identity. In doing so, the Obama administration added transgender people to the list of protected classes under the Affordable Care Act, which states that individuals...

The process of questioning ones orientation isnt a process of deciding but of discovering. Similarly, when it comes to gender identity, there is cis and there is trans. A cis persons gender identity matches the sex they were assigned at birth. A trans person well, a trans person is any one of the fifty-plus other genders on the entirely reputable Facebook spectrum.

A study in 2008 found that 43 percent of very young children who experienced gender dysphoria no longer felt that way after adolescence, the article says.

    Decide For Yourself: Transgender Crime Whenever a woman provides evidence of sexual crimes against women by males who identify as transgender, she can predict the response by transactivists. First, the transactivists will call her a bigot for pointing out the sexual crimes. Next, the transactivists will deny the sexual crimes took place. After that, theyll deny that the perpetrator is really transgendered, and insist hes a male who uses transgender identity to facilitate his crimes. Theyll insist this even when the perpetrators are prominent transactivists whove been central to passing laws granting male access to womens spaces, and even when...

In the private meeting he warned against the "ideological colonization" of culture by influential activists, particularly those pushing transgenderism on children. During a discussion of the immigration crisis, Francis discussed the concept of the colonization of cultures. "We are experiencing a moment of the annihilation of man as the image of God," he said.

    No men's room for her. For now. How insane have we become when its major news that one - count him, one - liberal Supreme Court Justice is willing to kinda sorta almost acknowledge that a 17-year-old girl doesnt stop being a girl just because she says she wants to? Pretty darn insane, and actually Steven Breyer didnt even do that yesterday. He did join his conservative colleagues in a 5-3 ruling that declines to order the Gloucester County school board to let Gavin Grimm use the mens room. But according to Reuters, Breyer he did so as a courtesy...

    An all-gender bathroom at the Democratic national convention was seeing plenty of visitors on Thursday. Even some famous ones.

"We were like: 'Ahhh'," Nice said. "Just experiencing Reverend Jesse Jackson coming out of a stall that just speaks everything about what an all-gender restroom really is about. So I'll take that any day."

When asked if trans women are "being denied their reproductive rights" Pressley was stumped. "You got me on that one." Tamblyn chimed in, arguing that the reproductive rights of trans women are at the forefront of the conversation at Planned Parenthood,...
