    Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is asking state universities for the number and ages of their students who sought gender dysphoria treatment, including sex reassignment surgery and hormone prescriptions, according to a survey released Wednesday. ...The survey is being sent to the university board of trustee chairs by DeSantis’ budget director, Chris Spencer. “Our office has learned that several state universities provide services to persons suffering from gender dysphoria," Spencer wrote. “On behalf of the Governor, I hereby request that you respond to the enclosed inquiries related to such services...

    Not everyone would be willing to confess their sexual secrets to a room full of strangers. That's where Kim TallBear and her Indigenous erotica event, Tipi Confessions, comes in."I confess: my first lesbian experience was with a white person. Even if she couldn't give any land back, she did give me many orgasms," says TallBear, reading an anonymous confession written and submitted by an audience member at a show during Toronto's 2019 Queer Film Festival. The crowd hoots, hollers and cheers.Tipi Confessions is a live theatre event, with its co-creators and hosts reflecting on sexual desire and sex positivity through...
  • Why Sexualize Kids if Sexuality is Inborn? Are we to presume that woke corporations, like Disney, teachers' unions, etc., have once and for all settled the long and contentious nature-nurture debate?

    Are we to presume that woke corporations, like Disney, teachers' unions, “progressive” academics, corporate media, and chic Hollywood have once and for all settled the long and contentious nature-nurture debate? Seems so. No one is born a certain way, say nurturers. The next time a gay guy or Admiral (Rachel née Richard) Levine tells you that “he was born that way,” tell him that the enlightened elite have changed the rules. Spread the word to any purple-haired, nose-pierced, tattooed LGBTQIA+ you happen to know. The push by self-professed incredibly smart, sophisticated, and science-dedicated progressives to sexualize kids -- starting at...

    A facial recognition experiment that claims to be able to distinguish between gay and heterosexual people has sparked a row between its creators and two leading LGBT rights groups. The Stanford University study claims its software recognises facial features relating to sexual orientation that are not perceived by human observers. The work has been accused of being "dangerous" and "junk science". But the scientists involved say these are "knee-jerk" reactions.

    The Federalist ^ | 12/13/2021 | Jennifer Rawls
    Allyn Walker, a former professor at Old Dominion University who identifies as non-binary, resigned last month following criticism stemming from Walker’s views on pedophilia. Walker argued that pedophiles should be destigmatized by identifying them as “minor-attracted persons” (“MAPs”) rather than the pejorative term “pedophile,” because attraction to children is a sexual orientation and not immoral.The pretense is that pedophiles are more likely to seek treatment if their sexual proclivities are destigmatized. Instead of relying on empirical evidence to determine the reasons for those proclivities or strategies that will keep children safe, Walker relies on queer theoretical tools to argue that...

    Instead of learning about the world and how to contribute to it, Parker's students will now learn about themselves and how to become 'agents of change.'Last week, fifth-grade teacher Amy Parker took the pages of the education site Chalkbeat to celebrate New York City’s initiative to promote “culturally responsive education” in its public schools. Parker introduces her essay by lamenting that “School taught me to hide who I was and what I valued” because it didn’t assign books with characters who had gay parents. But, at the same time, Parker also complains that she “was overly represented in the books...
  • Is the tide finally turning against trans mania?

    It was 2015 when I first sat down with my former MP and told him that transgenderism was a threat to civil society. He eyed me with the sort of benevolent scepticism usually reserved for people who claim Jesus sends them messages through car number plates. At the time there were just a handful of people warning that men were marching in size-10 stilettos into women-only hospital wards and on to female-only shortlists by identifying as trans.

    Source: P Photo/J. Scott Applewhite Brave and forthright intellectual Bari Weiss published in her Substack account this past week an essay written by Rob Henderson, a doctoral candidate at Cambridge University. Henderson's poignant story starts with a drug-addicted mother and carries him like flotsam through the California foster care system and multiple families to eventual adoption, the divorce of his adoptive parents, the miraculous intervention of a high school teacher, a stint in the military and then his matriculation at Yale on the G.I. Bill. It is, to say the least, a statistically unlikely positive outcome for someone with his...

    Lesbians claimed they get abuse if they do not wish to sleep with trans women Some claim they've been pressured to have sex with trans women with penises Transgender rights activists believe having genital preference is discriminatory 'Young women feel pressured to sleep with trans women 'to prove I am not a terf'.' The term 'terf', which stands for Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist, is often used to attack feminists calling to protect women-only spaces, and sex-based rights rather than gender-based rights, in opposition to advice from LGBT lobby group Stonewall. The same 'terf' term was levelled at JK Rowling after...

    Absent parent pushback, an updated guide used in public schools nationwide will promote abortion and gender confusion and expose kids to sordid, explicit sex education.This article contains adult-level information about sex and genitals.Last year, three leftist nonprofits created the National Sex Education Standards, a blueprint for the “sex education” of K-12 children. In practice, the standards serve as an indoctrination camp in extremist sexual ethics designed to destroy children’s innocence and undermine their attachment to the traditional, Judeo-Christian understanding of sex and marriage.About 40 percent of school districts had adopted the earlier, less extreme 2011 version of the National Sexuality...

    A federal judge blocked a law in West Virginia this week that banned transgender girls from participating in female teams. The judge ruled on Wednesday that the Mountain State cannot block transgender girls from playing on female sports teams. Gov. Jim Justice signed the bill in law on April 28, which initially banned transgender girls and women from participating in public school sports consistent with their gender identity. The ruling marks the third federal court decision in the past 30 days to block anti-transgender laws from going into effect. "At this point, I have been provided with scant evidence that...

    If total sexual freedom was embraced by a culture, that culture collapsed within three generations to the lowest state of flourishing — which Unwin describes as “inert” and at a “dead level of conception” and is characterized by people who have little interest in much else other than their own wants and needs. At this level, the culture is usually conquered or taken over by another culture with greater social energy.

    As far back as 2009, the BBC was reporting on the harassment of street preachers, devoting an entire Sunday broadcast to the subject on August 23, 2009. The program included “a recording of a recent incident where a street preacher was told by police officers that it is a criminal offence to identify homosexuality as a ‘sin’.” Since then, quite a few street preachers have been arrested for even less direct offenses, most recently a 71-year-old street preacher who, together with his colleague, explained God’s plan for male and female marriage as found in Genesis. For this he was roughly...

    FINLAND – Rev. Dr. Juhana Pohjola, Diocesan Dean and Bishop Elect of the Evangelical Lutheran Mission Diocese of Finland (ELMDF) has been charged by Finland’s Prosecutor General with incitement against a group of people. The charges stem from a 2004 booklet published by Luther Foundation Finland (the legal entity behind the ELMDF) which articulates historic Christian teaching on human sexuality. “As a Christian, I do not want to and cannot discriminate against or despise anyone created by God,” Dean Pohjola said in reaction to being charged. “Every human being, created by God and redeemed by Christ, is equally precious.” At...

    Our Founder and beloved friend, Dr. Judith Reisman, stepped into eternity on April 8, 2021 while doing what she loved: Working to protect children from sexualization and sexual exploitation brought about by the “Sexual Revolution” and its patriarch, Alfred Kinsey. Just moments after speaking with a student about research for her next book and sending an email seeking a grant for continuing her work, Dr. Reisman was escorted into heaven. God determined that her work on earth was finished and it was time for her heavenly reward. No doubt she was greeted with the words, “Well done good and faithful...

    America's third largest Christian denomination – the United Methodist Church – is splitting as conservative pastors aim to create a new denomination that will adhere to traditional biblical teachings. Methodist church leaders have formed a new denomination – called the Global Methodist Church (GMC) – and filed for formal separation from the UMC over the latter's growing acceptance of modern teachings on sexuality and gender. "In the United States, particularly, some bishops, clergy, and churches are operating in open defiance to the teachings of the United Methodist Church," said Keith Boyette, president of the conservative Wesleyan Covenant Association and spokesperson...
