    Mark Vincent Busenbark, a middle-aged man with a cross-dressing alter ego he calls Vica Steel, has been creating intellectual and moral havoc in Frank Allis Elementary School in Madison, Wisconsin for a year. Last school year, Busenbark, a science teacher, created a creepy video about his creepy predilection for cross-dressing and pretending to be sometimes a man and sometimes a woman. Then, with the permission of his administration, he presumptuously showed his creepy “coming out” video to all K-5 students without their parents’ knowledge or consent. In this video, he describes in biased language his disordered and delusional view of...

    RICHMOND, Va. — Supporters of the Equal Rights Amendment are so confident Virginia is on the verge of becoming the critical 38th state to ratify the gender equality measure, they are already making plans for how they will celebrate. But that jubilation could be largely symbolic. Despite broad support for the amendment in the state, the ERA’s prospects nationally are substantially more complicated. The proposed 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution faces a host of likely legal challenges and vehement opposition from conservative activists who depict the ERA as a threat to their stances on abortion and transgender rights.

    The battle over the rights of “transgender” and “cisgender” people continues to escalate in one of the most influential arenas: our nation’s schools. The Chicago Tribune reported this month that after a four-year battle, a school board in Palatine, Illinois, has granted transgender students “unrestricted access to locker rooms based on gender identity.” Just a few days later, CBS News Minnesota reported a mother had sued her local school district, claiming that it discriminated against her child for being transgender. These are just two of the most recent stories showing just how prevalent the transgender debate in schools has become....

    I live in Fairfax County, Virginia, which has the 10th-largest public school district in the nation, but I never focused on our public schools. My kids go to Catholic schools, and that was the center of our universe. I never focused, that is, until I heard that the Fairfax County School Board voted to let boys into the girls’ bathrooms. The vote was 10-1. Was there only one sane person on the Fairfax County School Board? I had to find out. So I began attending school board meetings. And there I saw moms and dads begging the school board to...

    Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker (D) signed legislation requiring every single-occupancy bathroom in public buildings in the state to be labeled gender neutral Under Senate Bill 556, also dubbed the "The Equitable Restrooms Act," all single-occupancy restrooms "in a place of public accommodation or public building shall be identified as all-gender and designated for use by no more than one person at a time or for family or assisted use," the law states. "Each single-occupancy restroom shall be outfitted with exterior signage that marks the single-occupancy restroom as a restroom and does not indicate any specific gender," the legislation continues.

    A politician who pushed for the introduction of “gender neutral” toilets shortly after his election has been charged with nine counts of sexual touching of a child.

Councillor Smith resigned from the notionally right-leaning party — described as “not really conservative” by Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage in a recent interview with Breitbart News — with “immediate effect in light of the...

    A high school assistant principal has been suspended for allegedly cornering a transgender student in the boys bathroom and challenging the teen to use a urinal to “prove that he was a boy,” according to reports. Michael Critchfield, a sophomore at Liberty High School in West Virginia, said he went to the bathroom before leaving for a school trip on Nov. 27 when Assistant Principal Lee Livengood barged in, according to a statement from the American Civil Liberties Union of West Virginia. “He kept asking me why I was in there. [He said] I shouldn’t be in there because I...

    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...

    HHS’s proposal would restore the federal definition of gender so that it refers to either a male or a female — no exceptions — and based solely on the individual’s genital makeup. “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth,” the memo reportedly reads. “The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.”

    The liberal bastion of Massachusetts is sweating over a ballot initiative that could overturn a 2016 law that opened women's public restrooms to men. Bay State voters will see several issues on their ballot in November, including the results of an underdog, grassroots effort to fight the bill signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker. The grassroots effort, begun by 21 people just weeks after Baker signed the bill, meant collecting 50,000 signatures in 45 days. Yet the group now known as Keep MA Safe successfully gathered enough certified signatures by the deadline, and that effort is listed as Question...

According to Johnson, 2018-19 will be the first year that the district has at least one "all-gender" restroom in each school building.

    Customers are not only paying for the coffee; they are paying for the heat and air conditioning, tables, accessible WiFi and bathrooms. Partners are paid to keep the place clean and comfortable for customers who spend literal hours studying, working, and holding meetings in the store. It seems like a fair trade to me. It doesn’t seem like a fair trade to me, however, if I pay $5 for my drink and then have to wait in line with a bunch of random tourists who just walked in wanting to use the single-family bathroom without buying anything. It also doesn’t...
  • Transgender Bathrooms?

    Transgender Bathrooms? Q. What is the Church’s official teaching about transgender bathrooms? There does not seem to be a clear answer about all of this. Robert, via e-mail A. There is no such thing as being “transgendered” from any biblical or Catholic perspective. Thus there is no official teaching about something that doesn’t even exist, let alone about bathrooms. What we can do is apply Catholic principles to address the deep confusion that has arisen about something so clear and basic as one’s sex. The human person has a sex (not a gender), and God assigns that sex. Scripture says,...

    An Italian toilet icon in southern Italy has upset the LGBT community. A hotel establishment in Cavallino near the southern Italian city of Lecce has created a storm with its unusual toilet icons, three to be precise; a woman, a man, and a “gay” man. “The word had been covered up but somebody decided to uncover it and make it visible again,” the owner told Il Quotidiano. The owner said the extra icon would be painted over. It had been there since the previous administration, according to the current owner, who stressed that there was no intention to discriminate, according...

    Target Corp's Chief Executive Brian Cornell took a sharp cut in compensation after the company failed to meet financial goals in a year marred by declines in sales and share price. Cornell's cash-and-stock compensation fell by nearly a third to $11.3 million, according to a document filed with regulators two months after the company reported results that sent its stock tumbling to 2-1/2-year lows. In contrast, bigger rival Wal-Mart Stores Inc gave CEO Doug McMillon a 13 percent pay hike, following strong sales performance at the world's largest retailer. CEOs of department store operators Macy's Inc and Kohl's Corp also...
