  • Teachers fired for challenging gender ideology get legal support from doctors, lawyers, feminists

    First Amendment experts, radical feminists and doctors are pushing back against a court ruling that held two educators responsible for their own firing because their opposition to a proposed gender identity policy sparked student protests and community complaints to Oregon's Grants Pass School District. U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Clarke botched Supreme Court precedents on the speech rights of public employees and qualified immunity from personal liability, upheld restrictions that disproportionately target women and adopted pseudoscientific language, according to ideologically diverse friend-of-the-court briefs filed with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Clarke's dismissal of the educators' lawsuit "effectively endorses a...

    In response to reporting from Breitbart News, Sarah Ashton-Cirillo, an American transgender individual claiming to be a “spokesperson” of the Ukrainian military, has criticised Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) and Moscow for “focussing on the tired trope of gender chaos” after the Republican lawmaker demanded the Biden administration reveal if Ashton-Cirillo receives any American funding or has ties to U.S. intelligence agencies. On Sunday, Breitbart News revealed that Sen. J.D. Vance of Ohio had written to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines after apparent Ukrainian Territorial Defence Forces spokesperson Sarah...
  • Pediatrician Discharges Mother’s Kids After She Objects to Gender Ideology

    Nicole Solas, who has written for Legal Insurrection, tells this amazing story. It’s incredible how quickly this ideology spread into everything.From the Daily Caller:SOLAS: My Pediatrician Discharged My Kids Because I Objected To Gender IdeologyI didn’t know that asking for an exam room free from sexualization and gender ideology would cause my pediatrician to discharge my kids from her care.My now-former pediatrician installed on the wall of every exam room a “Safe Zone” rainbow triangle sticker with the words “sexual orientation,” “gender expression,” and “gender identity.” Meticulously placed in front of the exam table and at a child’s eye level,...

    The College Fix ^ | 9/15/23 | Micaiah Bilger
    Too few Florida State University students expressed interest in learning about “race, class and gender” this fall through a new African American Studies course, the university confirmed this week. All three subjects in the course are frequent topics of discussion in higher education institutions across the U.S., with many dedicating whole departments to women’s studies, gender studies, African American studies and related subjects. But only two students signed up for the new fall elective, “Race, Class and Gender,” at Florida State University in Tallahassee, university spokeswoman Amy Farnum-Patronis told The College Fix.

    Lyft is introducing a new feature that let’s women and non-binary riders choose a preference to match with drivers of the same gender. The ride-hailing company said it was a “highly requested feature” in a blog post Tuesday, saying the new feature allows women and non-binary people to “feel that much more confident” in using Lyft and also hopefully encourage more women to sign up to be drivers to access its “flexible earning opportunities.” The service, called “Women+ Connect,” is rolling out in the coming months. Riders can turn on the option in the Lyft app, however the company warns...

    Christ Lutheran Church in Blaine, MN, is led by impastor Sarah E. Moat and has the distinction of being one of the more progressive “churches” we’ve ever come across. A quintessential Evangelical Lutheran Church in America congregation, pastrix Moat is not content to refer to LGBTQ peeps with that moniker but insists on doing the whole ‘LGBTQIA2S+’ each time (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and/or gender expansive, queer and/or questioning, intersex, asexual, and two-spirit) lest she exclude someone. She explains that they formed a welcoming team in 2020 “with a focus on ensuring that “LGBTQIA2S+ people have a safe space within...

    'The real question comes down to are you OK with removing healthy body parts of a child' Activists in California from both political parties are banding together to put measures on the state ballot that would ban child sex change surgeries and ensure fairness in women’s spaces, they told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Protect Kids California filed three statewide ballot initiatives Monday, and the group leaders believe they have bipartisan support on the issues. “The media and the California legislators make it seem that it’s a Democrat versus Republican issue, but it’s not. I would say the majority of...
  • "Everything is better’: Teacher shows reality of gender-neutral bathrooms in schools

    08/31/2023 2:23:56 PM PDT · by MNDude · 28 replies
    In a viral video, a Minnesota teacher shows the setup of a gender-neutral bathroom in a public school. The state's House of Representatives passed legislation in the spring to allocate funding to public schools to create gender-neutral restroom facilities. In a TikTok posted on Tuesday, a teacher who goes by Ms. B online shows how a gender-neutral bathroom is set up at a school in her district. The facility has see-through glass that looks into the hallway and separate, lockable stalls with room for students to hang their backpacks. The bathroom is also monitored by cameras that capture activity in...

    How would like your daughter to be forced to be naked with this thing? That's pretty much what a gutless coward Wyoming judge determined. A judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by University of Wyoming sorority sisters contesting the admission of a transgender woman whom they accused of being a sexual predator.Six members of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority chapter had challenged Artemis Langford's admission by casting doubt on whether sorority rules allowed a transgender woman. The biological girls were creeped out by this thingSeveral members of the sorority also claimed Langford's presence in their home left them feeling 'vulnerable'...

    Five years ago, after 30 years working in midwifery, I came up with the principles reprinted below. Why do I repost this today? A. "Telehealth" is causing skyrocketing abortions in Colorado. ( B. A Wyoming judge cannot define "woman" so a sorority must accept a trans "woman" whom the sorority does not want to accept. ( C. A Canadian woman seeking treatment for suicidal thoughts is asked to consider euthanasia. ( The above looks insane to me. Sanity is what most people think is normal: "1. Men, women and children need to live with love. This love is an indispensable...

    Gender dysphoria (G.D.) claims that someone whose sex was determined at birth to be male is entitled later to "identify as" female and take appropriate measures. Analogously, someone whose sex was determined at birth to be female is entitled later to "identify as" male and take appropriate measures. What about this? Entering stage right is conservative philosopher WVO Quine (1908–2000), who taught at Harvard University for decades and published widely during a long and distinguished career. While many of Quine's contributions are technical, there is a fairly simple one that applies to the problem at hand. Suppose, Quine noted, that...

    One of the nation's largest teachers unions in America has reportedly offered instruction to teachers on how to insert lessons on gender identity into classroom discussions, according to a right-leaning public policy institute. The Defense of Freedom Institute, founded by two former Trump administration Department of Education officials, released a report earlier this month describing the topics promoted by the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association. Before its Together Educating America's Children (TEACH) conference in July, DFI noted that AFT released a resolution on LGBT issues that touted "age-appropriate and inclusive" bathroom and locker room policies.

    Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy shared a list of what he called 10 truths to social media Thursday, with references to faith, gender, and capitalism. Ramaswamy, a biotech entrepreneur who is seeking the Republican nomination, shared the ideals on X, starting with, "God is real" and "There are only two genders" — the latter being a contentious claim by those on the Left. The list also promotes the importance of fossil fuels, condemns "reverse racism," defends the role of parents in choosing their own children's education, and boasts the U.S. Constitution as the "strongest guarantor of freedoms in history." While many...

    Of all the terrible things about Nikki Haley — her enthusiasm for more foreign war funding, her deference to corporate cultural assault — the cringe-worthy attempts to hype her status as a woman (A mom! A wife!) and Indian (“I’m a minority first!,” “I’m as diverse as it gets!”) are the least offensive. But it’s still really, really bad.Her whole campaign is Hillary 2.0.Haley currently polls nationally at less than 5 percent, and it’s the same in early Republican primary states Iowa and New Hampshire, so there aren’t a ton of reasons to spend time thinking about her. But it’s...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/18/2023 | Eric Utter
    So, after all of recorded history, it has come to this: an (alleged) astrophysicist claims it is odd that we separate male and female athletes. In a recent (2022) discussion with science writer and podcaster Michael Shermer, Neil deGrasse Tyson said: “It is a little weird that we split people by male and female in this way. I’m imagining a hundred years from now looking back and saying, ‘Do you know back 100 years ago they split boys and girls and they couldn’t compete?’ And … that’d just be kind of a little weird.” Really? At the rate we’re going,...

    A California hospital executive and professor claimed children can identify as a mythology-inspired creature and claimed that this category of children love mermaids, according to a presentation reviewed by Fox News Digital. Diane Ehrensaft, a self-identified "feminist" who supports a "gender revolution," is the director of mental health and chief psychologist at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital gender development center. She is also a professor at UCSF School of Medicine. The developmental and clinical psychologist specializes in pediatric "gender-affirmative care for transgender and gender-expansive patients." Her biography paged reflected that Ehrensaft focuses her research on how genders before puberty develop...

    Red State ^ | 08/14/2023 | Mike Miller
    As America stands ever more divided, it logically follows that more and more hot-button issues end up being decided by an increasingly divisive U.S. Supreme Court. With the high court itself now under attack from the radical left, it appears likely that a really hot issue could soon end up in the justices' laps, according to at least one expert. I'm talking about the growing number of lawsuits centered on preferred pronoun usage, with many of the cases related to K-12 public schools where teachers have been fired for refusing to use various pronouns when addressing students. So how crazy...

    The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has released its first LGBTQI+ Inclusive Development Policy, the purpose of which is to spread controversial gender ideology through foreign assistance. The policy also refers to “comprehensive sexuality education” and “reproductive rights,” which are widely understood to include abortion in addition to issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.
