    My oldest granddaughter is 15, and thanks to North Carolina’s HB2, if a 15-year-old boy in her school identified as a girl, he would not be allowed to play on her sports team or share her locker room. I for one am glad that North Carolina, my home state since 2003, has taken a stand for common sense, for safety, and for privacy, yet the NBA is punishing the state for protecting its residents, announcing that it will pull next year’s All Star game from Charlotte. What hypocrisy; what bigotry; what intolerance. The NBA is now the National Bullying Association.Let...

    The nation’s war over gender roles and sexuality is moving from banquet halls, bakeries and bathrooms into a new arena: birth certificates. In courthouses across Florida, judges are being asked to decide whether transgender people may change not only the name on their birth certificate, but also their “gender marker,” or the box that designates their sex. The requests have become increasingly common, say lawyers who litigate such cases.

On Thursday, July 21, the Fairfax County School Board will discuss the new transgender "guidelines" which will go into effect in fall 2016. The "guidelines" include language which could eviscerate free speech for FCPS students, both in and out of school. It also opens up private facilities such as restrooms, showers, and locker rooms to anyone, regardless of biological gender, as long as the person claims to "identify" with the gender that the facility serves.

    Evangelist Franklin Graham has called on shareholders of Target to dump their stock — saying the department store's policy regarding the use of its bathrooms by transgender people invites "sexual perverts into their stores." His plea follows reports of a transgender woman being arrested at a Target store in Utah for allegedly snapping pictures of a teenager in a changing room. "I told you so, it was just a matter of time. Target is putting their customers at risk — and their shareholders. I wouldn't be surprised if people started dumping their stock, and they should!"

    BOSTON, July 8, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The Republican governor of Massachusetts, Charlie Baker, has signed a law that would allow members of one biological sex to use the showers, restrooms, and other private facilities of the opposite sex. The law, which goes into effect on October 1, adds the phrase “gender identity” to state anti-discrimination laws, placing sexual identity on par with immutable characteristics such as race and sex. It would require “any public accommodation...without limitation” to open formerly sex-segregated facilities to members of the opposite biological sex. In June, lawmakers overwhelmingly rejected a measure that would have barred sex...

    Now that men have access to women’s bathrooms and fitting rooms at every Target store in America, many are using that opportunity to secretly film women and teenage girls. For example, a 16-year-old girl told station WDAY-TV in Fargo, N.D., that when she went into a dressing room, a man put his phone under the door with the camera facing toward her. “When she walked out, the man entered a different dressing room,” the station reported.

    A federal appeals court in Richmond has ruled that a transgender high school student who was born as a female can sue his school board on discrimination grounds because it banned him from the boys’ bathroom. In backing high school junior Gavin Grimm, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit deferred to the U.S. Education Department’s position that transgender students should have access to the bathrooms that match their gender identities rather than being forced to use bathrooms that match their biological sex. The department has said that requiring transgender students to use a bathroom that corresponds with...

The board members met on Thursday night only after being informed the night before that the discipline change would be considered. No opposing voices were allowed to be heard, parents were relegated to shouting opposition from the seats and some were ejected from the meeting.

    A teen boy runs, and wins, against teen girls in a high school level competition. The winning part is not surprising. Men have some biological reasons for being physically superior to women. Testosterone increases their muscle mass, lung capacity, and upper body strength. Then there are all the subtle ways that make a boy/man faster and stronger: smaller Q-angles, denser bones, more efficient oxygenation. Here is the practical effect of a boy participating in girls’ sports from the Alaska Dispatch News: Wangyot posted the third-fastest time in the 200 preliminaries and the fifth-fastest time in the 100 preliminaries.

    With the departments of Justice and Education’s new announcement on transgender access to showers, locker rooms, bathrooms, and other sex-specific facilities in schools, there is reason for concern. The Obama administration has unlawfully rewritten law, meddling in state and local matters, and imposing bad policy on the entire nation. Americans agree that while we should be sensitive to transgender individuals, others also have rights of privacy, safety, and their own beliefs that deserve respect and should not simply be pushed aside, especially when transgender persons can be accommodated in other ways.

Three federal judges are currently assigned to five dueling lawsuits over the law, which requires transgender people to use bathrooms corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates in many public buildings. The law also excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from statewide antidiscrimination protections. Senate leader Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore asked on Monday to combine...

    Obama has asserted, by pure fiat, on no legal, medical, scientific, or commonsense grounds whatsoever, that he can dictate how children use school bathrooms around the country. This is an obnoxious and dangerous abuse of federal power, and it looks suspicious. What is Obama's motivation? Adults may not remember the deep shame and embarrassment children often feel, as early as age four, around toilet training. Sibling rivalry can get pretty intense. Being called a "poopy kid" by your brother or sister might look pretty harmless to parents, but young children can experience it as a sink-through-the-floor feeling of overwhelming shame....

    In an attempt to calm the anger of the more than 1.2 million consumers who have pledged to boycott the store, the CEO announced the store’s plans to implement family bathrooms in all of its stores for people who may not feel comfortable in the traditional stall-by-stall bathrooms. “We’re committed over the next few months to make sure every one of our stores has that option, because we want to make sure that our guests be welcomed in our stores,” he explained. “But if there’s a question of safety, I can tell you and others, our focus on safety is...

    Gender "assigned at birth?" No, gender is "assigned" at conception Under President Obama, America was placed on the fast track to “fundamental transformation,” which is the process of our national heritage being eliminated, and the removal of every semblance of a traditional social order. It started long before the Obama administration, of course, with the Democratic Party having become a united-front organization of the “oppressed,” from radical feminists to advocates of racial revenge against whites, to special rights for homosexuals, and now, special rights for dozens of sexual preferences and gender classifications, all under the banner of “LGBT” (lesbians, gays,...

    Here is proof Hillary Clinton doesn’t care for the safety of your children. From Breitbart: Hillary Clinton is cautiously backing President Barack Obama’ controversial decree that forces the nation’s 100,000 K-12 public schools to open bathrooms and locker rooms to people who claim to be transgender. Over the weekend, a Clinton spokesperson said Hillary is supportive of Obama’s demands, but provided only a vaguely written endorsement that reduces the risk of sparking public opposition during her 2016 presidential campaign. “Hillary Clinton applauds the Obama administration for taking actions this week to stand up for the rights of LGBT people–and particularly...

    To achieve its political ends, the left doesn't just assault the Constitution through the appointment of liberal activist judges; there are a variety of other leftist abuses, such as politicizing the departments of Justice and Education. In its mission statement, the Justice Department states that one of its aims is "to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans." That goal underscores cherished principles of American jurisprudence and the Constitution, including the preamble's commitment to "establish Justice," the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law and the rule of law itself. Justice is supposed to be blind,...

    With a few strokes of a keyboard, President Obama is seeking to change the daily experience of thousands upon thousands of schoolchildren by ordering all U.S. schools to allow transgender students access to the restroom of their choice. He sent a letter stating his progressive decree to the nation’s schools Friday morning — threatening schools not just with legislation but with a loss of funding if they fail to comply. The New York Times had an early copy of the letter, from which it excerpted the following, which essentially bans the one-stall bathroom option: “A school may not require transgender...

    The Obama administration's directive Friday that every public school provide transgender access -- or face the loss of federal funds -- drew swift and strong condemnation from conservatives, with one public official blasting it as presidential "blackmail." The administration’s directive -- citing Title IX in telling schools to give transgender students access to all activities and facilities consistent with their gender identity -- effectively touched off a national debate that could well extend into the next president's term and reverberate through the courts. Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, speaking to reporters Friday, said his state "will not yield to blackmail...
