Parliament to review gender laws for trans children

Aug 29, 2015 by

By Nick Duffy, Pink News: A number of leading transgender campaigners have been invited to give evidence to the newly-formed Women and Equalities Select Committee, as it moves to review provisions for trans people in the UK across a number of areas. As Parliament is set to reconvene next month, the committee announced the topics for September’s evidence sessions – with issues affecting trans youth confirmed to be the topic for a session on September 15. It will be the first time that the committee has scrutinised provisions for trans youth, with campaigners from trans groups Mermaids and Gendered Intelligence among those invited to give evidence. One of the UK’s leading clinical psychologists in the field of gender identity, Dr Ashley Miller, will also give evidence to the session.

Charity race for children’s hospice where runners dress in drag is ‘a hate crime’

Aug 23, 2015 by

From The Telegraph: A transgender charity has reported the fun run to the police, saying “We do not need to give the bigots any more ammunition”. A charity fun run that invited men to dress up as women is being investigated by police after a transgender charity claimed the dress code constituted a hate crime. Officers were asked to look into the ‘Dames on the Run’ race – where men run dressed as women to raise funds for a children’s hospice – by a transsexual support group. Chrysalis Transsexual Support Groups say the five kilometre run, organised by Derian House Children’s Hospice, in Chorley, Lancashire, is “dehumanising”. They are now attempting to stop the run, due to take place in October, which raises money to support the hospice that looks after sick and terminally ill children. Read...

There’s a simple reason why the Stonewall trailer doesn’t feature more ‘trans women of colour’

Aug 23, 2015 by

By Brendan O’Neill, Spectator: Aping Isis, trans activists have defaced a historical monument to make a political point. They blacked-up — seriously, with spray paint and afro wigs — the Christopher Street Gay Liberation statue in New York, which commemorates the 1969 Stonewall riots and the birth of the modern gay-rights movement. Their beef? That the monument and a new movie about Stonewall don’t give enough credit to the black and Latino trans women who apparently were among the first to hurl bottles at homophobic cops on that fateful night. Let’s leave to one side the ugliness of sticking a comedy afro on a statue to make it appear black — a PC version of the black-and-white minstrels show. More worrying is that this infantile gesture, and the bonkers debate about the accuracy or otherwise of the Stonewall film, suggests the infernal politics of identity is now being projected back in time. Not content with colonising Twitter and infecting academia with this bunkum, the identity-obsessives now want to rewrite history according to their nasty, narrow worldview. Read here  ...

The transgender suicide epidemic: is accepting their confusion really the answer?

Aug 19, 2015 by

By Fr Mark Hodges, LifeSite:

People who suffer from gender confusion are encouraged by the current cultural climate to “be themselves,” meaning reject the gender they were born with.
“Transgender” teens are taught that what they feel is who they are and that to be happy and fulfilled, they must become the opposite sex. When Bruce Jenner decided to publicly look like a woman, he was supported by the mass media. Even the president of the United States, when Jenner decided to have castration surgery, applauded him as a “courageous” hero.

Transgender 16-year-old freezes eggs so ‘he’ can become a dad in future

Aug 17, 2015 by

By Sarkis Zeronian, Breitbart: Transgender teen Riley Middlemore has frozen her eggs before undergoing gender reassignment surgery in order that she can become a ‘biological dad’ after becoming a man. Sixteen year old Riley hopes to undergo gender reassignment surgery on the National Health Service (NHS) when she is 18 – but says that this will not stop her having a family of her own. Riley was born a girl called Rebecca, but revealed to her mother last Christmas that she wanted to have a gender change. She now shaves what was once long brown hair and binds her 34C breasts ahead of full gender reassignment. At an estimated cost to the tax payer of £10,000, she will be able to undergo a mastectomy, hysterectomy and penis construction when she reaches 18 years old – reports the Mail. Riley initially came out as gay last December, but shortly afterwards told her mother she wanted to become a man. Her mother was due to meet her then-girlfriend, who knew of Riley’s male aspirations. She explained: “Mum was coming round to have tea with my then girlfriend. I was worried my partner might refer to me as ‘Riley’ or ‘he’. I said to Mum, ‘I need to tell you something’. Read...
