It has been bizarre to watch the transgender activists face off with the feminists, who are realizing that feminism is essentially an outdated dogma in a world where men can become women on a whim—and even win female awards, indicating that they are better at being women than biological women.
This face-off has even turned physical in a few instances, such as when trans activists and radical feminists brawled in London’s Hyde Park last fall. More recently in Canada, feminists were outraged when a male-born trans woman was elected leader of Quebec’s largest women’s rights group. …
But that’s nothing compared to the outrage being generated by the decision of whoever is running the Vancouver Women’s March to invite a rather strange speaker: Hailey Heartless, a male sex worker who calls himself a “transsexual professional dominatrix” and styles himself as a female feminist LGBTQ activist and advocate for legalized prostitution.
Vancouver writer Meghan Murphy headed over to Twitter to express disbelief:
“Seriously?? The Women’s March in Vancouver is bringing on a male ‘dominatrix’ as a speaker this year. What does this have to do with women and women’s liberation from male violence?? Unbelievable and incredibly disappointing.”
Four prominent U.S. bishops joined leaders of other Christian traditions in publicly reaffirming the inherent beauty and reality of each person’s God-given sexuality.
Created Male and Female: An Open Letter from Religious Leaders – December 15, 2017
As leaders of various communities of faith throughout the United States, many of us came together in the past to affirm our commitment to marriage as the union of one man and one woman and as the foundation of society. We reiterate that natural marriage continues to be invaluable to American society.
We come together to join our voices on a more fundamental precept of our shared existence, namely, that human beings are male or female and that the socio-cultural reality of gender cannot be separated from one’s sex as male or female.
We acknowledge and affirm that all human beings are created by God and thereby have an inherent dignity. We also believe that God created each person male or female; therefore, sexual difference is not an accident or a flaw—it is a gift from God that helps draw us closer to each other and to God. What God has created is good. “God created mankind in his image; in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” (Gen 1:27).
A person’s discomfort with his or her sex, or the desire to be identified as the other sex, is a complicated reality that needs to be addressed with sensitivity and truth. Each person deserves to be heard and treated with respect; it is our responsibility to respond to their concerns with compassion, mercy and honesty. As religious leaders, we express our commitment to urge the members of our communities to also respond to those wrestling with this challenge with patience and love.
Children especially are harmed when they are told that they can “change” their sex or, further, given hormones that will affect their development and possibly render them infertile as adults. Parents deserve better guidance on these important decisions, and we urge our medical institutions to honor the basic medical principle of “first, do no harm.” Gender ideology harms individuals and societies by sowing confusion and self-doubt. The state itself has a compelling interest, therefore, in maintaining policies that uphold the scientific fact of human biology and supporting the social institutions and norms that surround it.
The movement today to enforce the false idea—that a man can be or become a woman or vice versa—is deeply troubling. It compels people to either go against reason—that is, to agree with something that is not true—or face ridicule, marginalization, and other forms of retaliation.
We desire the health and happiness of all men, women, and children. Therefore, we call for policies that uphold the truth of a person’s sexual identity as male or female, and the privacy and safety of all. We hope for renewed appreciation of the beauty of sexual difference in our culture and for authentic support of those who experience conflict with their God-given sexual identity.

Average Transgender Soldier Unable to Deploy for 238 Days
White House military ban to be based on deployability
The average transgender soldier will spend 238 days recovering from sex change surgeries and unavailable to deploy, according to an Obama administration study.

Under the policy, Defense Secretary James Mattis can consider a service member’s ability to deploy as the primary legal test for deciding whether to discharge them from the military.
MTV TRYING TO RECRUIT TRANSGENDER SOLDIERS FOR MTV MUSIC AWARDS
News broke in July that MTV’s iconic “Moon Man” would henceforth be referred to as a “Moon Person” as a sign of respect for the transgender community. The network plans to expand on that theme with transgender service members on Aug. 27 in Inglewood, California — if Pentagon officials approve.
I GIVE YOU THE WISE AND WELL-RESPECTED LEADER OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY

The Ninth Circuit Just Ruled Coaches Can be Punished For Praying on a Football Field
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, arguably the most liberal and misguided federal court in the country, has issued a ruling that justifies the punishment of coaches for praying on public school football fields. The big reason? Because parents and teachers can see them doing so and therefore it’s a violation not protected under the U.S. Constitution.
Affirmative Action Has Failed. It Never Had a Chance to SucceedAfter decades of affirmative action, billions of dollars invested in finding, mentoring, and recruiting minority students, and extraordinary levels of effort and experimentation, black and Hispanic students are “more underrepresented at the nation’s top colleges and universities than they were 35 years ago” (emphasis added). White and Asian students, on the other hand, remain overrepresented as a percentage of the population, with Asian students most overrepresented of all.
And when it comes to college admissions, the problem isn’t a lack of collegiate demand for qualified minority students but rather a serious deficiency in supply. There are simply not enough students who are ready, willing, and able to do the work.
‘Well-oiled’ activist ops targeting GOP reps at their homes, hijacking town halls
The targets say the whole operation is part of a one-two punch orchestrated from the top, in which left-wing groups throw their first punch by rounding up activists and training them to be as disruptive as possible during representatives’ town halls.
Then, when lawmakers stop holding those events, the groups throw their second punch by protesting at their homes.
“This is a well-oiled, very much activist plan to disrupt the democratic process,” Lewis said.
Source: Kasich, Hickenlooper consider unity presidential ticket in 2020
Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper have entertained the idea of forming a unity presidential ticket to run for the White House in 2020, a source involved in the discussions tells CNN.
Under this scenario, Kasich, a Republican, and Hickenlooper, a Democrat, would run as independents with Kasich at the top of the ticket, said the source, who cautioned it has only been casually talked about.
The irony is strong with this one.
I’m glad the professor freely admits that transgenders are disabled. This allows me to skip the first obvious point, so I can move on to the other two obvious points.
I.e., the Nazi eugenics program involved MURDERING disabled people, while Trump merely says (correctly) that they do not belong in the military where it MATTERS that all the bodies be as close to perfect as possible.
But, please, dear professor, continue talking. I’m sure other parents would benefit from learning what kind of “education” their kids would get at Clemson.
CHARLIE GARD: Charlie Gard’s parents were unable to use the £1.3 million (about $1.5 million USD) they raised to transfer Charlie to the U.S. for experimental treatment. They’ve decided to start a Charlie Gard Foundation to help families in similar circumstances.
TRANNIES IN THE MILITARY: President Trump could save American taxpayers nearly $2 billion if he follows through on his plan to ban military service for severely gender-confused (“transgender”) individuals.
That is the estimate for the cost of the “transgender” military policy begun under Obama, accordign to a paper by Family Research Council.
CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME: Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have linked chronic fatigue syndrome to variations in 17 immune-system signaling proteins, or cytokines, whose concentrations in the blood correlate with the disease’s severity.
The findings provide evidence that inflammation is a powerful driver of this mysterious condition, whose underpinnings have eluded researchers for 35 years.
“There’s been a great deal of controversy and confusion surrounding ME/CFS — even whether it is an actual disease,” said Davis. “Our findings show clearly that it’s an inflammatory disease and provide a solid basis for a diagnostic blood test.”
FAKE NEWS: The story of a nun who received Vatican permission to witness a Catholic marriage in a remote Canadian diocese with few priests has seized international attention — the implication being it may portend a new role for women in the Church. But the situation is far from unprecedented and is allowed under canon law.

LIAR: Chuck Schumer Says Democrats Not Celebrating Failure Of Obamacare Repeal – This Video Proves Him Wrong
After the floor session, Matt House took a picture of Schumer standing with Warren. Later, Warren was mobbed by raucous supporters outside the Capitol, despite the late hour.
Steve Doocy said on “Fox & Friends” that Republicans “betrayed the confidence they had with voters” by defeating their own bill.
Now, look at the video below. It’s filled with images of Democrats, Schumer’s own colleagues. They are clearly celebrating. They look very happy, unlike the American people who are suffering.
Planned Parenthood to send superhero capes to senators who voted against healthcare bill

Planned Parenthood Issues Guidelines On How to Teach Toddlers About Transgenderism and Masturbation
New guidelines have been issued on the Planned Parenthood website containing detailed methods for talking to preschoolers about gender roles, sexuality, masturbation, transgenderism, and even ways of determining whether your child is trans or not.
[CtH: My mother had a guideline for this stuff too. “Ask me again when you’re older.”]
The federally funded corporation, Planned Parenthood, is now offering advice to parents on how to approach sexual and gender identity topics with toddlers and preschoolers. When they’re not killing unborn babies with tax dollars, they have to at least make sure your kids grow up to be ill-adjusted, gender confused, and hyper-sexual.
Disaster: Megyn’s Sunday Show’s ‘Initial Run’ Pulled After Just Eight Episodes
MAYBE IF SHE DID HER SHOW IN THE NUDE? JUST A SUGGESTION.
Kelly has alienated everyone except the small band of “Never Trumpers” on Twitter and anti-Trump pundits who, so desperate for affirmation and attention to make up for their numerous insecurities, gleefully allow themselves to be used as the legacy media’s useful idiots. The only silver lining for Today may be that Kelly’s tremendously bad ratings may have given Matt Lauer plenty of job security.

Chelsea Clinton tells ‘white parents’ to teach their kids not to be racists – that’s pretty racist
Chelsea Clinton loves to get on her soapbox and preach to the commoners. She continued that trend on Friday when she decided to tell “white parents” how to raise their children.
Clinton is no stranger to offering her “wisdom” on social media. Not only to her followers, but to world leaders and members of the media. In the past year she has used her Twitter account to scold the president of the Philippines, chastise Megyn Kelly for interviewing Alex Jones, attack Steven Bannon for fat shaming, and frequently to go after President Donald Trump.
But her latest foray into telling parents how to raise their children drew the ire of many.
Chelsea Clinton@ChelseaClinton — Retweeted Crystal Johnson with a link to a video on black parents talking to their children.
- Painful & powerful. Thank you Crystal for sharing. White parents need to talk about racism & hate with our children throughout their lives.

- Want to talk about Racism, Chelsea? Did you think about that hungry little Haitian girl on your wedding day? Observe.
Moonbats Flock To Chelsea Clinton Book Signing In Falmouth, MA
Three girls stood at the head of the line behind Eight Cousins bookstore Thursday morning, clutching copies of “She Persisted,” a new children’s book by Chelsea Clinton.
Maya Holzman, 12, and Sydney Holzman, 13, both of Brookline, and Mia Bartlett, 13, of West Roxbury, got in line at 7:45 a.m. for Clinton’s 10:30 a.m. book signing.
“I thought it was really good for kids and inspiring young girls to know they can do whatever they want,” she said.
AS LONG AS THEIR PARENTS ARE CORRUPT POLITICIANS WHOSE LUST FOR RICHES IS INSATIABLE.
A survey that asked, “Have you ever been a member of the armed forces?” received 6,546 “valid responses.” From that, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality inexplicably concluded that “approximately 15,500 transgender individuals are serving on active duty or in the Guard or Reserve forces.” IOW, 1.2 percent.
Another study, one that was sponsored by the military, estimated that “the number of transgender individuals currently serving in the active component of the U.S. military at between 1,320 and 6,630 out of a total of about 1.3 million service members.” IOW, between 0.1 and 0.5 percent.
The first number makes no sense, given that the estimated trans population in America is only around 0.3 percent.
I’m inclined to believe in the lowest end of the estimates. For one thing, the highest figure for active duty was inappropriately extrapolated from a sample that included any past service. For another, I just find it difficult to believe that the average transsexual would want the military life.
