    MADISON, Wisconsin, November 23, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – A bill to stop transgender students from using restrooms and other facilities of the opposite sex faced a contentious, hours-long hearing on Thursday. But a spokesperson for the bill's sponsor in the state Senate says it is designed to protect children, and that the bill accounts for the struggles of transgender teenagers. And a state activist told LifeSiteNews that "this bill is a reasonable response to a complex problem." "It's clearly not an easy issue for public schools to deal with," said Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action, who e-mailed LifeSiteNews during the...

    ALFRED, Maine (AP) — A woman who stabbed a random shopper to death in the ice cream aisle of a supermarket was sentenced Monday to life in prison. Connor MacCalister had told police she was angry with life and had gone to the store to kill "several random people." According to court records, she acknowledged being "off (her) meds" when she killed 59-year-old Wendy Boudreau in August at a Shaw's supermarket in Saco, where they both lived. MacCalister, 31, entered her guilty plea in October over the objection of her lawyer, who wanted to use an insanity defense. MacCalister was...

    The whole "transgender" issue hasn't shown up much on the presidential radar, but it did with Ted Cruz recently.  In a radio interview, Cruz said: ... the Obama administration’s support for trans students amounts to “lunacy!” “Look, these guys are so nutty that the federal government is going after school districts, trying to force them to let boys shower with little girls,” Cruz responded. “Now listen: I’m the father of two daughters, and the idea that the federal government is coming in saying that boys, with all the god-given equipment of boys, can be in the shower room with junior...

    As I sit here in my kitchen sipping coffee and reading the latest news about "Caitlyn" Jenner, I can't help but reflect on the darkest time my soul has ever endured. I was a young girl when I met my husband in the mid 1990s. We were vibrant and madly in love. We got married, quickly discovered we were going to be parents, and were over the moon excited. I gave birth to a girl, and a beautiful, strong boy followed four years later. My husband was successful and I was grateful that his income afforded me the opportunity to...

    The war on the pink aisle continues. The newest ad for Barbie’s Moschino doll line features a new figure for the first time ever — a boy. “Moschino Barbie is so fierce!” the boy yells before placing a designer purse on the doll’s arm. The ad features him and two girls touting Mattel’s already popular line that includes clothes and accessories from the fashion designer Moschino. The ad, released earlier this month, is the latest in a series of steps to remove gender from toy shopping. Target made waves this year when it decided to stop labeling toys as for...

    San Diego State University has axed its longtime tradition of naming a homecoming "king" and "queen," and this year will go with the gender-neutral term "royals," the Daily Aztec campus newspaper reports. As recently as last year SDSU named a homecoming "king" and "queen" during its annual football game, according to the university’s website. But this Saturday when the Aztecs take on the University of Wyoming Cowboys, the Royal Court will end up with the "final two Royals," the website adds. It’s unclear if those final two "royals" will be one male and one female, or some other iteration of...

    A federal discrimination complaint has been filed on behalf of a Katy-area educator who says she was wrongly terminated for refusing to address a 6-year-old girl as a transgender boy, the teacher's attorneys said Tuesday. Madeline Kirksey, of Houston, who worked at the Children's Lighthouse Learning Center location on Clay Road, was fired Nov. 3 after she would not agree to treat the child as a male and call the child by a new male name, according to a copy of the filing with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

    Dallas city council voted unanimously on Tuesday to approve an ordinance allowing transgender people to use the "facilities" of the opposite sex. The measure, which opponents describe as a "bathroom" bill, adds "gender identity" to the city's 2002 anti-discrimination law alongside race, sex, and sexual orientation. Mayor Mike Rawlings said, "We're a very diverse city. We want to make sure everyone is protected." The move comes one week to the day after Houston residents voted to repeal the transgender ordinance passed by their city council. More than 60 percent of citizens said no in alandslide defeat of theHouston Equal Rights...

    Wounded American Warrior ^ | November 8, 2015 | Benny Huang
    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...

    The progressive press is seething with indignation towards the voters of Houston, Texas, more than 60 percent of whom have rejected a city council ordinance that would allow transgender women (that is, biological males) into women's restrooms and locker rooms.More precisely, the media standard bearers for the never-ending sexual revolution are furious with the Campaign for Houston, a group in which pastors featured prominently, for focusing voters’ attention with the slogan, “No men in women’s bathrooms”. Their brisk and effective ad suggested that The Houston Equal Rights Ordinance would provide a cover for sexual predators to threaten the privacy and...

    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...

Carson was responding to questions about a recent ordinance in Houston that would have established nondiscrimination protections for gay and transgender people. Voters rejected the ordinance after an 18-month battle in which opponents argued that allowing transgender men and women to use their preferred public bathrooms would open the door to sexual predators who wanted to enter women's restrooms. Carson's response: "How about we have a transgender bathroom?" "It is not fair for them...

Effective October 20, taxpayers will be on the hook for prisoners who claim to have gender dysphoria.

Quine, who was also convicted of kidnapping and robbery, is serving a life sentence for his crimes. He now wants to be considered female, and he sued to have the...

Although the Palatine-Schaumberg Township High School District 211 allows transgender students to use locker rooms of the gender they identify with, it requires them to use private shower stalls or changing areas so as not to appear naked in the company of the opposite sex. The student filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of...

    We could begin by looking at this from the perspective of political philosophy. In the early 1790s, when our Constitutional government was in its infancy, Secretary Hamilton proposed a national bank that we definitely needed, but which was not specifically authorized by the Constitution. A decade later, President Jefferson’s delegates to France brought back an irresistible offer – to purchase a third of a continent from France for pennies an acre – which just as clearly lacked Constitutional authorization. In both instances, the opposing party said “You can’t do that without an Amendment! You’ll regret setting the precedent!” But they...

    Uncle Sam isn't going to let schools place certain restrictions on how transgender students use a single-sex locker room. A school district near Chicago, Palatine 211, provides numerous accommodations for transgender students. The district calls the students by requested names, honors selected gender (including allowing them to play on the sports teams of the gender they identify as belonging to), and permits them to use single-sex bathrooms, since stalls ensure privacy. But the federal government has decided the district is still guilty of violating Title IX, the law prohibiting sex-based discrimination, over certain locker room restrictions.

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...

    OTTAWA, October 14, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Canada’s Girl Guide organization has produced guidelines for male-to-female transgender members that leaves it up to the troubled youths themselves to decide which washrooms they will use and whom they will sleep with on group excursions. “It’s the path of progress to destruction,” Gwen Landolt, the executive vice president of REAL Women of Canada, told LifesiteNews. A former Girl Guide, Landolt said, “We took an oath back then to support God, family and country. Now it is a case of anything goes.” The “Guidelines for Inclusion of Transgender Members” released on October 5, closely...

    PALATINE, ILLINOIS, October 14, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The Obama administration is suing yet another school district for refusing to allow a biological teenage male to use the girls' locker room, restroom, and shower facilities. Yesterday, the federal government found a the school in violation of a new interpretation of Title IX, a 1972 law designed to prevent sex discrimination. Nothing in the law – or any other federal civil rights legislation – specifies that it applies to transgender individuals. That decision came after what a district spokesperson described as months of negotiation. A male student who identifies as female sued...

    At the age of 42, Walt Heyer was married and had two children. But he had felt for years that he was stuck in the wrong gender. So he fully transitioned and emerged as Laura Jensen.

Now he has detransitioned back to his birth gender and provides encouragement to people who regret their gender change.MercatorNet: Bruce – now Caitlin – Jenner seems perfectly happy with his gender change. Doesn’t his experience prove that a gender change is possible?Walt Heyer: I was also "perfectly...

    Vice President Joe Biden is throwing his unequivocal support behind letting transgender people serve openly in the U.S. military, as the Obama administration considers whether and when to lift the longstanding ban. Biden's declaration at the Human Rights Campaign's annual dinner Saturday goes further than anything the Obama administration has said before, evoking memories of when Biden outpaced President Barack Obama in endorsing gay marriage. Although the White House says Obama supports a Pentagon review aimed at ending the transgender ban, neither Obama nor the military has said definitively that the policy will be changed. "No longer is there any...

    Did you know that describing the state of pregnancy as being solely applicable to women is considered offensive?  No, dear reader, neither did I, until I read this earnestly written column, stating that transphobia is rampant in the midwifery world.Up until 2014, the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) had, sensibly and reasonably enough, referred to their clients as women and mothers. Then at some point last year, presumably having imbibed the gender theory Kool-Aid at some diversity conference or other, they changed most of the language in their core competency documents to reflect the notion that some transgender, gender queer...

    Courts, businesses, schools and legislatures grapple with transitioning reality. Caitlyn Jenner is now a woman in the eyes of the law. The transgendered woman, who has become an international symbol of the right to choose one’s own sexual identity, legally switched genders Sept. 25.Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg signed the paperwork. Now the woman who was born William Bruce Jenner on Oct. 28, 1949, can get a new driver’s license and Social Security card, along with all of the other government documents that everyone needs.But will that be enough to allow the former Olympic athlete to enter the...

    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...
