    Scientists have uncovered 20 genes linked to being transgender – supporting claims that the condition has a physical basis. Researchers believe the gene variations may contribute to people identifying with the opposite sex. Critics of transgender identity say the condition is ‘all in the mind’, and transgender people have a psychological problem rather than a medical one. But by highlighting genetic mutations that affect brain development, the latest findings point towards transgender identity having a physical basis.

    A religious studies major was barred from Christianity class at Indiana University of Pennsylvania for saying during class that there are only two genders. Lake Ingle, a senior at the university, said he was silenced and punished by IUP Professor Alison Downie for questioning her during a Feb. 28 “Christianity 481: Self, Sin, and Salvation” lecture. After showing a 15-minute TED Talk by transgender ex-pastor Paula Stone Williams discussing the “reality” of “mansplaining,” “sexism from men,” and “male privilege,” the professor asked the women in the class to share their thoughts. When no women in the class said anything, Ingle...

As reported by Campus Reform, Religious Studies major Lake Ingle was in a class February 28 that included a video lecture by “transgender woman” Paula Stone Williams, a man who used to be a prominent pastor and church planter before deciding that he felt more comfortable as a woman.

    FULL TITLE: Transgender visitor at a prison files lawsuit after she was ordered by guards to remove her underwear because a screening machine detected 'unknown object' in her pants A transgender woman who tried to visit her incarcerated brother has filed a federal lawsuit claiming that Louisiana prison officers ordered her to remove her underwear and show her genitals before she could leave the facility. Donald Nelson, a 48-year-old New Orleans resident who goes by the name 'China,' said in the complaint filed Tuesday that officers at Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola insisted on searching her vehicle after she refused...

    A transgender woman is suing Tinder on behalf of other transgender people living in the Portland area, claiming it rejects all transgender people from the dating service. Ariel Hawkins claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, a few days ago she edited her profile to disclose that she was a pre-op trans woman. She says Tinder immediately deleted her account. She says the company sent her email saying she violated its terms of service ... but didn't point her to any term and refused to explain the basis for the rejection.
  • Sex Reassignment Doesn’t Work. Here Is the Evidence.

    The Daily Signal ^ | March 08, 2018 | Ryan T. Anderson
    Sex “reassignment” doesn’t work. It’s impossible to “reassign” someone’s sex physically, and attempting to do so doesn’t produce good outcomes psychosocially. As I demonstrate in my book, “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment,” the medical evidence suggests that sex reassignment does not adequately address the psychosocial difficulties faced by people who identify as transgender. Even when the procedures are successful technically and cosmetically, and even in cultures that are relatively “trans-friendly,” transitioners still face poor outcomes.

    Last week saw another attempt to silence debate and research whose findings diverge from an accepted orthodoxy. In the Advocate, transgender activist Brynn Tannehill decried a 2017 abstract that appeared in the Journal of Adolescent Health, stating that the research into rapid onset gender dysphoria or ROGD was “biased junk science.” The research that Tannehill so strongly objected to was undertaken by Lisa Littman, MD, MPH. Littman surveyed parents about their teen and young adult children who became gender dysphoric and transgender-identified in the context of belonging to a peer group where one, multiple, or even all the friends in...

    WATERLOO — Three teachers in this Seneca County school district criticized Board of Education President Mike Shores during Monday’s school board meeting. The target of their ire was a video posted on Shores’ Facebook page titled “Transgender identity is child abuse.” The speaker in the video, who says she was a pediatrician for 20 years, states that a transgender child is not a biological condition but a psychological one, emphasizing that gender is determined by DNA. She claims no one is born transgender and cites the danger to the body from surgical and chemical treatments to change gender at a...

    Citing preexisting concerns, Swampscott parents Friday presented the School Committee with a statement of no confidence in the elementary school principal who recently came out as transgender. Shannon Daniels, previously known as Tom, also took an unexpected leave of absence this week. Superintendent Pamela Angelakis initially told parents in an e-mail that she and Daniels had mutually agreed Daniels would go on leave for “at least a few days.” On Friday, the superintendent’s assistant said she could not say when Daniels would return. School Committee chairwoman Amy O’Connor said she received the parents’ petition Friday, and she was just beginning...

    The abortion chain Planned Parenthood claims women are its primary clients. But last week, Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky wanted its supporters to know that it serves men, too, including transgender “men [who] have a uterus.” It repeated the line “Some men have a uterus” 11 times in the tweet. In another tweet, it also claimed men have ovaries, writing, “Whoo brovaries!” The Christian Post reports conservatives quickly mocked the abortion giant for the biologically inaccurate tweet. According to the report: This is “madness” tweeted Obianuju Ekeocha, founder and president of Culture of Life Africa and author or the...

    A full three out of four transwomen who undergo hormone therapy to “transition” into being female never reach normal female hormone levels, according to a new scientific study. I know. It's almost like it was designed to be that way or something. Here’s how it works, in a nutshell. Average adult males have testosterone levels ranging anywhere between 270-1,070 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). Women’s testosterone levels, on the other hand, average about 15-70 ng/dL – obviously, a much lower level. When a biological male decides he feels like a woman and chooses to medically force his physical body into accepting this delusion, he...

    Principal Shannon Daniels, 52, formerly Tom Daniels, announced three weeks ago that they’re transgender and would be presenting as female going forward. Daniels, a Swampscott resident, who became the school’s principal in 2012, identifies as both male and female and prefers “they/them” pronouns for a gender-fluid identity, but plans to become fully transitioned to female. “Principal Daniels is on a temporary leave of absence,” wrote Superintendent Pamela Angelakis and Swampscott Police Chief Ronald Madigan in a correspondence to Stanley families. The email was shared with The Item by a Swampscott resident who wishes to remain anonymous. There is also a...

    Students at Carleton College recently hosted an “all-gender” rendition of The Vagina Monologues in an effort to eschew the play’s roots in a “cisgender lens.” While productions of The Vagina Monologues have been a mainstay of campus feminist groups since its debut in 1996, the play has often been criticized by college students for its lack of focus on people of color and trans students.

    Mack Beggs is back. He's still wrestling, still competing for a state championship and still undefeated. And he's still wrestling against the girls. It's just been a lot quieter since last year when his march to a state championship was dogged by a last-minute lawsuit that tried to stop him and boos from the crowd when his hand was raised as the victor. The senior from Euless Trinity High School near Dallas is transgender and in the process of transitioning from female to male. It was his steroid therapy treatments while wrestling girls that stirred a fierce debate about competitive...

    Based on an analysis of the foundational presuppositions of Mormon theology, this writer predicted in a 2013 essay entitled, "Why Mormonism will Surrender to Homosexuality," the capitulation of the Mormon Church and by extension the Boy Scouts to inclusion of practicing homosexuals. Now with passage of the Supreme Court ruling, Obergefell v. Wade and by extension the declaration that a man (Bruce Jenner) is now a woman (Caitlyn), post-Christian America has also surrendered to the pagan ideal of transgender (androgyny).

    More than a century of tradition changed at Yale University on Tuesday. The Whiffenpoofs, the senior a cappella group, admitted its first female singer. Sofia Campoamor was picked to be one of the 14 new members of the Whiffs’ Class of 2019. “I’m really excited,” said Ms. Campoamor, a 20-year-old junior from Washington, D.C. “To me the overall goal is to change the conversation around senior a cappella to one that is not about gender, but about music.” *** Founded in 1909, the Whiffenpoofs bills itself as the oldest collegiate a cappella group in the U.S. The Whiffs and an...

    Parents of a 17-year-old girl lost custody of their daughter for opposing her wish for transgender medical treatments. Judge Sylvia Sieve Hendon of Hamilton County, Ohio has allowed the girl to be taken into the custody of her grandparents – who support her medical transition – allowing them to make decisions that will further along her physical transition to the opposite sex. According to CNN, Hendon ordered that the family’s names not be released. The parents reportedly continued to call their daughter by her given name, rather than a male name, and refused to consent to hormone treatments that were...

    All scientific evidence indicates that gender identity disorders result principally from cultural causes and moreover, modern society is facilitating them, according to an analysis published Friday. Writing for the Catholic World Report, Anne Hendershott chronicles an exploding “transgender industry” illustrated by a massive surge in the number of referrals for gender-identity treatment, in some cases increasing by as much as 2800 percent in less than ten years. Western societies such as the UK, Sweden, Australia, and the USA have seen a spectacular rise in the number of persons, especially young people, seeking treatment for gender identity issues, paralleling the attention...
