Is a ‘Transgender Day Of Remembrance’ really necessary?

Nov 28, 2015 by

By Julie Birchill, Spectator: […]  There’s no doubt that transgendered people have a high chance of leading sad, confusing lives. They are vulnerable to physical attacks from stupid people and low sarcasm from smart people like me. The Transgender Day of Remembrance was founded in the USA in 1999 in honour of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was murdered in Massachusetts; this year it coincides with an investigation being launched into the death of another transgender woman, Vicky Thompson, in a men’s prison. Every transgendered death is a tragedy and, as a lifelong believer in capital punishment, their killers should, in my opinion, be executed. But two women a week are murdered by partners and ex-partners – are they going to be given their own flag on government buildings any time soon? How about the victims of so-called honour killings, murdered by their own barbaric families? Little children,...

Analysis: What really happened in Houston – How the transgender “bathroom bill” was defeated against overwhelming odds

Nov 27, 2015 by

From MassResistance: On Nov. 3, voters in Houston went to the polls to vote on city council, school board, and other local races — and also an “equal rights” transgender ordinance, a.k.a., “bathroom bill.” An impressive army of pastors, community activists, and politicians came out fighting! One would have expected it to pass fairly easily. Houston is a large, deep-blue left-wing city with a powerful openly lesbian mayor who had been re-elected twice. The ordinance had been overwhelmingly passed by the city council. To win the referendum vote, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders all campaigned for it, as well as movie stars and major corporations such as Apple, Dell, Hewlett Packard, United Airlines, and others. There were threats from the NFL that if voters didn’t approve it, a Super Bowl in Houston would be jeopardized. The LGBT lobby raised $3 million to pass it –...

The ‘tyranny’ of sex-change surgery and its political sycophants

Nov 25, 2015 by

By Lianne Laurence, LifeSite: A recent move by Ontario’s Liberal government to expand referrals for sex-reassignment surgeries (SRS) opened yet another front in the decades-long political and ideological war over the perception and treatment of gender dysphoria. This mental disorder is characterized by a repudiation or aversion to one’s sex, and whether surgically altering genitalia is legitimate treatment, or a mutilation vainly done to satisfy a mental delusion, is the most consequential question for transgendered persons themselves, and one of the more controversial issues surrounding “transgender rights.” These have “emerged as the next big thing” in the United States in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision that homosexual “marriage” is constitutionally protected, says Peter Sprigg, policy analyst for the Washington-based Family Research Council (FRC), and co-author of the June 2015 report “Understanding and Responding to the Transgender Movement.” And the “trans” lobby has been abetted by political, medical,...

Husband Of 9/11 Hero Returns ‘Woman Of The Year’ Award, Attacks Caitlyn Jenner For Accepting It

Nov 17, 2015 by

From The Federalist: The husband of a 9/11 hero who was awarded “Woman of the Year” in 2001 has returned the award to Glamour magazine in protest of their decision to award Caitlyn Jenner the same honor. James Smith, husband of Moira Smith, said he was angry the magazine couldn’t find a woman more deserving of the award than Jenner, a man who first gained notoriety as Bruce Jenner for winning a gold medal during the 1976 Olympics. Jenner re-emerged into the limelight as the patriarch on the reality TV show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and announced earlier this year that he was undergoing sex-change operations and would change his name to Caitlyn. Moira Smith was a police officer on duty during the 9/11 attacks who repeatedly ran into the south tower as it was collapsing to rescue others still trapped inside. During one of these rescue attempts...

LGBT heads for divorce. Will LGB drop T before T drops LGB?

Nov 16, 2015 by

By Daniel Moody, The Conservative Woman: After her bruising encounter with transgenderists, there is good news and bad news for Germaine Greer. The good news is that transgenderism is not misogynistic. The bad news is that it is misogynistic and misandristic: if males and females can be males or females, then male and female are identical; therefore males and females can oppress males and females; therefore patriarchy cannot exist. Bang goes feminism. My condolences, Ms Greer. Transgenderism is not even sexist: it attacks both sexes. Feminists have been fighting it for a few years, dubbed Exclusionary and Radical for the crime of insisting that only members of the female sex can be women, but now a new front has opened up. A warning shot has been fired across transgenderism’s bows in the form of a Lesbian Gay Bi-sexual (LGB) sponsored petition asking LGBT organisations such as GLAAD and HRC...

Childcare workers fired for refusing to call trans girl a boy

Nov 14, 2015 by

From The Christian Institute: Two childcare workers in Texas are taking legal action after they were fired for refusing to call a six-year-old transsexual girl by a boy’s name. Madeline Kirksey, one of the former employees, said that she is suing the Children’s Lighthouse Learning Center for violating her religious beliefs. The six-year-old girl is being raised by two men, who told the centre to refer to their daughter as a boy, and to call her by a boy’s name. Force the issue She had already been attending the centre for four months as a girl. Kirksey said it was not her job to force the issue of transsexualism on the children of other parents. She thought that all the parents should be informed of the change so that they could talk to their children about it. Read here...
