  • The Supreme Court confuses mental illness with sex

    On Monday, the Supreme Court concluded that homosexuality and transgenderism are covered under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This post doesn’t have enough space to explain why, legally, that is an incorrect decision. Put simply, the Civil Rights Act does not cover sexual orientation and was never intended to. If Congress wants to change that, it can; it is not the Supreme Court’s role, though, to make that change. This post focuses only on the fact that the Supreme Court, in Bostock v. Clayton County, wrongly accepted the premise that transgenderism is part of the homosexuality spectrum. It...

    The online community erupted in outrage after a German medical student gave a TEDxTalk arguing that pedophilia is an "unchangeable sexual orientation" just like heterosexuality and that society should become more accepting of pedophiles.Mirjam Heine defended her claims before an audience at the University of Würtzberg in Germany during a presentation called, "Why our perception of pedophilia has to change." She makes the extremely controversial claim that pedophilia is simply another sexual orientation."According to current research pedophilia is an unchangeable sexual orientation just like, for example, heterosexuality. No one chooses to be a pedophile, no one can cease being...

    Our culture is obsessed with granting validation and approval through naming each sexual phenomena. So we'll keep making up new terms for sexual preference. By Georgi BoormanJune 15, 2017 Inquiring minds have often wondered why The New York Times makes the editorial decisions it does. Now we scratch our heads yet again at a recent piece entitled, “The Hottest Body Part? For a Sapiosexual, It’s the Brain.”What is a sapiosexual, you ask? Anna North is here to answer that question—one you never would have asked had you not read this sexy headline from the Times. She profiles one Aboubacar Okeke-Diagne,...

    Apparently three Philadelphia-area schools have decided they can't wait until Labor Day to start molding and shaping the young minds attached to the students who enroll there. Swarthmore, Haverford and Bryn Mawr got together to offer a “Tri-College Identity, Equity, and Social Justice Summer Institute.” As Swarthmore's pr department explains in a press release: "The Tri-College Identity, Equity and Social Justice Summer Institute is designed to help students enhance both their leadership skills and their individual/group identity issues within the context of exploring issues of gender, race, sexuality, socio-economic class, spirituality, power, and privilege. To this end, intensive workshops on...
  • Is Pedophilia Okay if You’re “Born That Way”?

    The New American ^ | February 1, 2015 | Selwyn Duke
    “Now, many experts view it as a sexual orientation as immutable as heterosexuality ... a deep-rooted predisposition ... that becomes clear during puberty and does not change.”The above idea was expressed with respect to homosexuality decades ago and since has become left-wing dogma. The thinking is that if someone was “born that way,” if the behavior is “natural” for him and he didn’t choose his feelings, how could it be wrong?Yet the opening quoted line wasn’t penned decades ago — it’s only two years old. And homosexuality wasn’t the focus.It was about pedophilia.Here is the complete quotation, as published by...
  • California state colleges consider asking students about sexual orientation on application forms

    Is it a stretch to imagine activists might someday push for affirmative action programs for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students? For now, administrators are just weighing whether to include a question about sexual orientation on application forms to determine whether California's state colleges are presently adequately serving the LGBT community: California’s state colleges and universities are laying plans to ask students about their sexual orientation next year on application or enrollment forms, becoming the largest group of schools in the country to do so. The move has raised the hopes of gay activists for recognition but the concerns of...
  • The Three Philanthropists

    Building Institutions by Ari Bussel I was at dinner with several major philanthropists. There was enormous power in that room, with two couples sitting next to each other each worth in excess of half a billion dollars, and another at the next table worth both other couples combined. I want to highlight three of those who attended. It was a fundraising event for a local charity, and at the correct time one of those in attendance stood and said: “What I value most is building institutions. This is what remains.” He then added to whatever he already gave “two times...

    There is an enormous and growing body of research, encompassing the fields of biochemistry, neurobiology, physiology and psychology, which all point to a clear conclusion: that there are profound differences between men and women. These go well beyond the obvious physical appearances and reproductive differences; men and women differ at many levels, and also approach relationships differently. As such, this document rests upon, and makes the case for, these four foundational principles: 1. Gender differences exist; they are a fundamental reality of our biology and impact our psychology. Our maleness and femaleness is a key aspect to our personhood. 2....

    ROYAL AIR FORCE STATION MILDENHALL, England, Oct. 24, 2005 – For one participant in the Joint Civilian Orientation Conference, the visit here Oct. 21 wasn't just an introduction to the Air Force; it was a mini family reunion. William Transier, co-chief executive officer and director of the Endeavour International Corp. in Houston, got to meet up with his nephew, Air Force 1st Lt. Scott Morrison, a co-pilot with the 351st Air Refueling Squadron here. Transier said he knew Morrison was assigned to Mildenhall, but didn't know that this base was the one JCOC would be visiting. "When I saw the...

    The Harvard Crimson ^ | March 2, 2005 | ANNA M. FRIEDMAN
    After some students were offended by Jada Pinkett Smith’s comments at Saturday’s Cultural Rhythms show, the Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, and Supporters Alliance (BGLTSA) and the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations have begun working together to increase sensitivity toward issues of sexuality at Harvard. Students said that some of Pinkett Smith’s remarks concerning appropriate gender roles were specific to heterosexual relationships. In a press release circulated yesterday by the BGLTSA—and developed in coordination with the Foundation—the BGLTSA called for an apology from the Foundation and encouraged future discussion of the issue. According to the Foundation’s Student Advisory Committee...

  • Study: One in 100 adults asexual

    10/14/2004 7:52:43 PM PDT · by FairOpinion · 101 replies · 1,960+ views
    LONDON, England (CNN) -- About one percent of adults have absolutely no interest in sex, according to a new study, and that distinction is becoming one of pride among many asexuals. It was published in the latest issue of The Journal of Sex Research and is the focus of a report in this Saturday's issue of New Scientist. Bogaert's analysis looked at responses to another study in Britain, published in 1994. That study was based on interviews of 18,000 people about their sexual practices. A 1994 survey, published by The University of Chicago Press, found that 13 percent of 3,500...

    News Weekly ^ | 03JUL04 | Peter Westmore
    As News Weekly goes to press, the NZ Labour Government has rushed legislation into Parliament which will effectively legislate for gay marriage, through what are called "civil unions". The bill was tabled in Parliament on June 21, and MPs were expected to vote on it on July 23 or July 24. The bill creates a new form of legal relationship - a registered civil union - that would apply to same-sex relationships and heterosexual couples. Running alongside the Civil Union Bill will be the Relationships (Statutory References) Bill that removes discrimination based on marital status. It amends over 1000 provisions...

    Recent findings that gays can go straight radically alters the debate on gay marriage, says David van Gend. The Titanic of Gay Rights, leaving all in its wake, is about to founder on a large and immovable fact. My concern is not for the glamorous first-class passengers - the prominent doctors and judges - or for the Mardi Gras exhibitionists leering and lurching across the deck, but for the unknown homosexuals down in their lonely cabins feeling sick. These are the ones who want to stop the ship and get off. The homosexuals who do not want to be homosexual,...

    CNSNews.com) - After a heated debate, the U.N. Human Rights Commission dropped discussion of a resolution to add "sexual orientation" to the U.N.'s definition of discrimination. But family groups warn that supporters of the issue, which include most European countries and Canada, will lobby harder to pass the resolution when it comes up for a vote again next year. "This issue never goes away," said Douglas Sylva, director of research at the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute in New York, which opposed the resolution. Brazil and 19 other nations co-sponsored a resolution calling on member states "to promote and...

    PARENTS BEWARE "SEXPERT" SICKOS REACHING YOUR CHILDREN VIA LOCAL PUBLIC SCHOOL SANCTIONED "YOUTH SUMMITS!" Here is yet another threat source of medically inaccurate, dishonest and negligent sex ed disinfo being given to school children in both high and middle school grades, courtesy of regional "youth summits." These events are local public school principal & school superintendent sanctioned, often without local Public School Board awareness, at which hundreds of public school children at a time, as young as 13 (7th grade) are shipped off during school hours to be subjected to "sexpert" speakers and workshops. Parents often recieve permission slips that...
