    North Carolina Republican lawmakers said late on Wednesday they had reached a deal to repeal the state's controversial law prohibiting transgender people from using restrooms in accordance with their gender identities. Details were not released of the compromise measure, which was set for a vote on Thursday morning, state Senator Phil Berger and General Assembly Speaker Tim Moore said in an impromptu news conference on Wednesday night.

    The NCAA is threatening to remove North Carolina from consideration to host championship games for the foreseeable future if the state does not repeal a law regulating public restrooms, locker rooms and showers on the basis of biological sex. The collegiate sports league will announce championship locations from 2018 to 2022 on April 18, and it said North Carolina will not be among them unless HB2 is repealed.

    Duke athletes were attacked when the liberal and soon to be disbarred DA, Mike Nifong, unjustly prosecuted Duke Lacrosse players in the infamous hooker rape case. Now, another disbarred attorney, Barak Hussein Obama set into motion the conditions that propelled the Duke basketball team to lose in the NCAA tournament. Obama wanted to protect confused little boys that don't want to pee in urinals or girls who do. The governor of North Carolina signed into law a bill that the ever PC NCAA protested by moving the 2017 tourney out of Greensboro, North Carolina. So Duke, a 2 seed, played...

    FULL TITLE: "LGBT Community Freaks After Restaurant Warns: "No Transgender Bathrooms...Don't Get Caught In The Wrong One"" Before today, the Steak & Catfish Barn was just a popular fried food paradise enjoyed by Oklahoma City locals and whose only real claim to fame was being featured on an episode of "Man vs. Food" with Adam Richman. But that all changed when the restaurant's owner, Bob Warner, posted a sign clarifying his bathroom policy: "WE DO NOT HAVE A TRANSGENDER BATHROOM. SO DON'T BE CAUGHT IN THE WRONG ONE.

  • Conservatives Must Win the Transgender Battle, For the Sake of Transgenders

    Adam Hobbes of Reaxxion wrote one of the more insightful columns I’ve read on the subject of transgenderism. It was titled “Why We Need To Fight Against Transgender Acceptance”. Hobbes asserts in his work that the greatest danger with the transgender movement is that it forces us to “give up our minds” to accept something fundamentally untrue. This is obviously problematic, and affects issues far beyond public restrooms and who plays on which sport teams. As Hobbes explains, when one accepts the lie of transgenderism the slippery slope turns into a cliff of despair. Polygamy, pedophilia, zoophilia, and anything else...

    Target reported sales and earnings that missed Wall Street's expectations on Tuesday, in what was a disappointing holiday quarter for the big-box retailer. At the same time, the retailer issued an outlook for fiscal year 2017 that fell well short of analysts' expectations. Here's how the company did: —EPS: $1.45 per share, excluding items, versus $1.51 per share expected by Thomson Reuters analysts' consensus. —Revenue: $20.69 billion versus $20.7 billion expected by Thomson Reuters. —Same-store sales: A decline of 1.5 percent versus the 1.4 percent decline expected by FactSet. A year earlier, Target earned $1.52 a share on $21.6 billion...

Pritzker, the billionaire heir whose father co-founded Hyatt hotels, floated the idea of switching bathrooms in the wake of President Donald Trump's executive order reversing an Obama policy that could have stripped federal funds from schools that maintain separate bathroom facilities based on sex. "As a protest against Trump's rescinding protections for trans kids, everyone should use the other gender's bathroom today!" he tweeted at 8:36 a.m. As a protest against Trump's rescinding...

    FORT WORTH — Count federal prisons as the latest battleground for the transgender bathroom debate. Three female inmates at Federal Medical Center Carswell in Fort Worth have filed a flurry of complaints, upset over the Bureau of Prisons policy that allows transgender inmates who are still biologically male to be placed in female prisons. The women claim that they are living in a degrading and dangerous environment by being forced to share showers and bathrooms with the transgender inmates, according to complaints and motions filed in the U.S. District Court’s Northern District.

    Yesterday the Trump administration preserved federalism, respected the principle of local control over local schools, and corrected one of the Obama administration’s many lawless and radical executive actions. With a simple, two-page letter, the Departments of Education and Justice withdrew and rescinded two Obama-administration letters that purported to unilaterally redefine Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The Obama administration had expanded Title IX’s explicit ban on sex discrimination in federally funded educational institutions to encompass “gender identity” discrimination and then imposed intrusive “guidance” on every federally funded school in the nation, on matters ranging from pronoun usage to...

Jackie Evancho, 16, said she wanted to "enlighten" Mr Trump on the issue. On Wednesday, Mr Trump overturned Obama-era guidance allowing transgender students to use school toilets matching their gender identity. Critics of the order said it threatened other students' privacy and safety, and states should decide their own rules. The vocalist said she was "obviously disappointed" about his move, and she wanted to meet the president to tell him what her sister Juliet, who is transgender, endured at...

    WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - President Trump is signaling he won't force public schools to adopt Obama's transgender bathroom guidance mandating students be allowed in opposite sex bathrooms and locker rooms. The White House filed a motion Friday Feb. 10 with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals effectively keeping in place a nationwide injunction that blocked Obama's transgender bathroom "guidance" until the Supreme Court addresses the issue in March. A challenge to the injunction late last year by the Obama administration had been scheduled to go before the court this week but was canceled by Friday's filing. Sarah Warbelow, legal director...

    A deal to undo the North Carolina law known as the "bathroom bill" fell apart Wednesday night when legislators couldn't agree on a plan to repeal the measure, a sign of the bitter political divide within the state. The North Carolina General Assembly was called into a special session about nine months after they passed the law, which tarnished the state's national image as major corporations decided to pull up stakes, entertainers canceled concerts and the NCAA and ACC moved sporting events away. The wide-ranging law's best-known provision required transgender people to use restrooms in many public buildings corresponding to...

That means people must use bathrooms and other public facilities where occupants can be in various stages of undress according to whether their sex chromosomes are XX, in the case of females, or XY, in the case of males. The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community claims that the use of biology to determine sex is oppressive and limits alternatives. I...

    FULL TITLE: Lawsuit: Transgender 'Girl' Twerked, Grinded Against Biological Girls In Locker Room, Leaving Them in Tears A lawsuit filed in federal court is uncovering the consequences of the Obama Administration’s unlawfully imposed transgender agenda. After capitulating to Obama’s public school transgender edict in May, a Minnesota high school is being accused of ignoring complaints of privacy violations by their biologically female students, Fox News’ Todd Starnes reported Wednesday. Funny, this is exactly what the left continually assures us would never happen. According to the bombshell lawsuit, a transgender “girl" student, who participated on girls' sports teams, “twerked,” “grinded” and...

    The NCAA will move seven championship events this academic year from the state of North Carolina, including the first and second round of the 2017 NCAA men's basketball tournament, because of the state's controversial HB2 law. The NCAA's Board of Governors made the announcement late Monday night. The decision comes on the heels of the NBA moving the all-star game in February from Charlotte to New Orleans.

    n recent years, a common refrain accompanying nearly every demand for newly invented “rights” has been: “It doesn’t affect you, so you can’t be against it.” This claim—whether false or true, subjective or objective—has been played as the ultimate trump card. If you could not point to a direct, immediate, and significant intrusion on your life, then your concerns—no matter how thoughtful and legitimate—were sacrificed at the altar of the New Regime. Times change. On Wednesday, Alliance Defending Freedom filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of high school students and parents, asking the court to strike down a Minnesota school...

    Tampons are now a genderless necessity, according to Brown University, who have announced that they will be providing tampons for both men’s and women’s bathrooms across the university this academic year. The tampons will be delivered to bathrooms by the university’s student president, Viet Nguyen, as well as 20 volunteers, with Nguyen claiming the initiative is a means of educating students that men menstruate as well as women. In an email to the student body, Nguyen said, “There’s been a lot of conversation about why pads and tampons are a necessity, not a luxury, but not a lot of action....

    Under a Massachusetts civil rights agency’s interpretation of new anti-discrimination law, churches can be forced to let biological males who identify as transgender women use the women’s bathroom. Recently passed legislation amending the state’s anti-discrimination law to include protections for “gender identity” will take effect Oct. 1. The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, which enforces the state’s anti-discrimination laws, recently published a “Gender identity guidance” that lays out what will be legally required of employers and “agents of places of public accommodation.” The guidance was published Sept. 1 but has gone unreported by the media until now. The commission confirmed that...

    COLUMBIA — Many single-occupancy restrooms across the MU campus that were labeled as "unisex" will be re-labeled "toilet" by the time students return in August. The change to "toilet" will only affect single-occupancy bathroom stalls. In residential halls, single-occupancy stalls with showers and sinks will be re-labeled "shower" and "toilet," depending on the contents of the restroom. The move follows a resolution passed by the Missouri Students Association in January. According to the resolution, the change will "make MU's campus bathrooms more accessible to trans and gender non-conforming students." Sterling Waldman, a social justice chair in the MSA Senate, engaged...

    The 2009 film "The Invention of Lying" is set in a world where everyone tells the absolute truth. One day, the protagonist accidentally discovers that you can tell people something that's palpably false and, no matter how outrageous or absurd, they'll believe you, because they can't comprehend the idea of lying. To test his new insight, he has a conversation with a couple of his buddies in a bar, with hilarious results. Protagonist (who's clearly Caucasian): "I'm black." First friend: "Great, I always wanted a black friend." Protagonist: "I'm an Eskimo." Second friend: "I didn't know they had those, black...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — A federal judge ruled Friday that two students and an employee must be allowed to use restrooms matching their gender identity at University of North Carolina campuses, and he said they have a strong chance of proving the state's bathroom-access measure violates federal law. U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder temporarily blocked the University of North Carolina from making the three plaintiffs follow the restroom provision of the so-called HB2 law as the larger case makes its way to trial in November. His final decision on the law won't come until after trial. Passed in March, HB2 requires...
