    It’s one thing when adults experiencing gender dysphoria decide to “transition” to live as the other gender through hormone treatments, operations and makeovers. But what happens when kids say they’re transgender and think they’re ready for hormones that will disrupt their normal growth? Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians, spent 17 years as a general pediatrician with a focus on child behavioral health. She talked about gender dysphoria on today’s show to explain what being dosed with hormones does to kids who aren’t old enough to know their own minds yet. Schools are starting to teach students...

    The jury trial for a Casper resident charged with sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl began Monday. Miguel Martinez faces one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. If found guilty, Martinez could face up to 70 years in prison. The girl said Martinez, who is a family friend, invited her into the bathroom, touched her breasts and genitalia before penetrating her. Nurses at the Wyoming Medical Center completed a sexual assault exam and found redness and abrasions on the girl’s genitalia.

    Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey is leading a group of 15 Democratic attorneys general in opposing President Donald Trump’s administration’s plan to bar transgender individuals from openly serving in the military. The group filed a brief Monday in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia arguing that banning transgender individuals from the military is unconstitutional and against the interest of national defense and that it harms the transgender community. “Our military should be open to every brave American who volunteers to serve,” Healey said. In the brief, the attorneys general argue that “nothing about being transgender inhibits a person’s...

    A transsexual has spent an eye-watering $1m on transforming from bullied 'band geek' to Barbie doll - and is now looking for her dream real life Ken Doll. Nikki Exotika, 35, from Hoboken in New Jersey, has been under the knife for nearly two decades changing every inch of her body to look like her plastic fantastic idol. From two-years-old she knew she was different, always putting on make-up and nail polish before becoming obsessed with Barbie two years later. At school, while living as Jason Torres, she was bullied for her flamboyant style and self-expression, when she would hike-up...

    A Boise State University professor recently learned what happens when you challenge left-wing social narratives on college campuses. Scott Yenor, a tenured professor, has been under siege on campus after publishing articles with The Heritage Foundation and The Daily Signal about feminism and the transgender movement. In those articles, Yenor explained the similarity in philosophy between the early feminists and modern transgender movement and how they aim at undermining traditional family values. He wrote in a Daily Signal article on Aug. 2:
  • California’s New “Wrong Pronoun” Law for Transgenders Is A Doozy

    Hotair ^ | 10/10/2017 | Jazz Shaw
    We actually discussed this proposal when it first arose in California a while back, but much of the general consensus seemed to be that it wouldn’t actually happen so there was no sense spinning our wheels over it. This issue at hand was a bill which would criminalize the use of the “wrong pronoun” when speaking with transgender persons. It was only supposed to apply to health care workers in nursing homes and other specific care facilities, but opponents worried that it could readily be expanded to every aspect of life. As I said… not gonna happen, right?Well, never...

    A Washington state woman filed a lawsuit Thursday against the Catholic health organization she works for, saying it discriminated against her by refusing to pay for her child's chest reconstruction surgery as the child transitions to be a boy. The American Civil Liberties Union is representing Cheryl Enstad and her teenage son Pax, who allege PeaceHealth violated both Obamacare and state law in refusing to cover the treatment. The mother worked as a medical social worker for PeaceHealth and received insurance coverage through her employer. When Pax was diagnosed with gender dysphoria, his doctor suggested he have chest reconstructive...

    Sorrowful news from brother | October 6, 2017 | self-
    Our family received shocking news. Our niece- a beautiful 13YO identical twin girl- Natalia, has decided that she wants to be a BOY. However, her family is celebrating the news. Natalia is now to be called 'Nace' and she dresses as a boy. We have been warned (threatened) we must use the pronouns--him or he. And it's so much worse because she has an identical lovely twin sister, Olivia. Olivia is a very feminine, modestly dressed, normal appearing happy-go lucky, girly-girl. Natalie and Olivia are naturally life-long best friends. This is being culturally normalized and may strike a family near...

    This year’s homecoming royalty at Lincoln High assumed their respective thrones through a gender-neutral voting system that school officials hope is more inclusive. “It was a simple way we could be more inclusive to all our students and still bridge that with some traditions that we and other schools have in terms of homecoming,” said Principal Mark Larson. Lincoln High is the first LPS high school to make such a change. But Lincoln High joins a growing number of high schools and colleges across the country moving to gender-neutral roles for homecoming royalty. Those include the University of Nebraska at...

    Hundreds of parents packed a Rocklin charter school district board meeting Monday night to voice their opinion about teaching gender identity in class. The discussion was sparked after a kindergarten teacher read a book to the class about a transgender girl's transition. The school board heard more than three hours of comment before they voted late Monday to not to change their current literature policy, which allows the inclusion of transgender characters, and "endeavor" to notify parents about controversial topics.

    NANTUCKET, Mass. – Chelsea Manning told a crowd at a “creative thinkers” conference in Nantucket on Sunday that she’s not an “American traitor” as her critics have claimed and she did what she thought was the right thing to do. Manning attended the annual conference for The Nantucket Project in Massachusetts. The Nantucket Project is a venture founded to bring together creative thinkers to uncover the ideas that matter most. Organizers say about 600 people attended. This was one of Manning’s first public appearances since being released from a military prison in May. The Associated Press was the only media...

    FULL TITLE: Transgender Children Now Able to Physically Transform Bodies at Younger Ages Under New Medical Guidelines New clinical guidelines, released Wednesday, are expected to reshape medical care for transgender children. The recommendations, written by an international medical team, ease previous restrictions so that children under 16 years old can begin hormone therapy in order to physically transform their bodies. The guidelines, which are being updated for the first time since 2009, are expected to carry wide influence among pediatricians across the globe. The Endocrine Society, which boasts the “largest global membership” in the field of endocrinology, released the guidelines....

    Radical feminists aspire to revolutionize society in three ways. First, they seek to eliminate the different ways boys and girls are socialized, so that they will come to have very similar characters and temperaments. Second, they seek to cultivate financial and emotional independence of women and children from the family. Third, they hope to erase sexual taboos, embracing new ways for individuals to achieve sexual satisfaction outside of monogamous, procreative marriage. Winning public sanction for same-sex marriage was the last great feminist victory. Same-sex marriage undermined sex roles within marriage. It put children ever more outside the purpose of marriage....

    Facing backlash from high-ranking current and former CIA officials, the Dean of the Kennedy School of Government withdrew an invitation for Chelsea Manning to serve as a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics in late-night reversal Friday. “I now think that designating Chelsea Manning as a Visiting Fellow was a mistake, for which I accept responsibility,” Kennedy School Dean Douglas W.
