    The Board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), voted to change the name of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to the Children's Literature Legacy Award because they found her ďLittle HouseĒ series (written in the 1930s through the 1940s) to† ďreflect dated cultural attitudes toward indigenous people and people of color that contradict modern acceptance, celebration and understanding of diverse communities.ĒNot everyone agrees. ďWhen the American Library Association renamed an award formerly bearing Laura Ingalls Wilderís name, calling her works ďdatedĒ and racially offensive, the reaction was swift and...

    We're living through a strange era, one in which logic and reason has been turned on its head, forcing us to view the world through the lens of the seriously deranged. These insidious distortions of reality come in many forms, but, in this instance, I'd like to address the issue of biological sex. A mere few decades ago, who would have imagined that one day we'd be told that there are more than two sexes? With a plethora of scientific and commonsense evidence describing a male and female as the necessary ingredients for the continuation of the human species (and...

Its alleged crime is punishable by fines and possible jail time. In early 2018, Kevin Clarkson was asked to represent the Downtown Hope Center, a faith-based nonprofit that provides free shelter for homeless women and...

    Nicholas Bade showed up at an Air Force recruiting office on an icy morning in January, determined to be one of the first transgender recruits to enlist in the military. He was in top shape, and had earned two martial arts black belts. He had already aced the military aptitude test, and organized the stack of medical records required to show he was stable and healthy enough to serve. So he expected to be called for basic training in a month, maybe two at the most. Six months later, heís still waiting. And so are nearly all other transgender recruits...

    Chelsea Manningówho became a male-to-female transgender after going to prison as Bradley Manning for giving reams of classified information to WikiLeaksóallegedly attempted suicide earlier this week. Manning was taken to a prison hospital after an apparent attempted hanging. This is not a surprise: ďtransgenderĒ individuals have an alarmingly high suicide rate, somewhere north of 40 percent by some reliable estimates. A variety of explanations are often given for this astronomical figure, chief among them that transgender people are driven to kill themselves in such large numbers because they suffer from discrimination, bigotry and hatred.

    As people around the world don rainbow swag in celebration of International Pride, the World Health Organization (WHO) has come out with an announcement of its own. For the first time since 1992, the organization issued a major revision to its international manual of diagnoses and, among other things, a major shift in the way transgender people are treated. The 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) reframes ďgender identity disorderĒ as ďgender incongruenceĒ, moving it from a mental health disorder to an issue of sexual health. Codes issued by the ICD are used by countries to determine...

The board brought in a special panel that recommended changing the term ďbiological sexĒ to ďsex assigned at birth,Ē which the panel said aligns with recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Psychological Association and the American College of Physicians. The board also changed sex education policies to provide more information to female students regarding contraception, as well as education on pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, for male students.

    Like many new dads, Sabastion Sparks knew parenting would come with serious challenges. But most new dads didn't give birth to their child. They didn't breastfeed them. And they don't endure glares from strangers when they go shopping with their wife and their toddler son. Sabastion, 24, is a transgender man who lives with his wife Angel in suburban Atlanta. Assigned the female gender at birth, he began transitioning five years ago . It's a process that felt more complete last month when he had surgery to remove his breasts.
