Seattle author mistakes Norwegian flag for Confederate flag, alerts local newspaper

When a New York Times bestselling author noticed a blue-and-red flag flying near her home, she tipped off the local newspaper to report a “Confederate flag.” But there was just one little problem – it was a Norwegian flag.

The tip-off to the Seattle Times came from true-crime author Rebecca Morris. “Hi. Suddenly there is a Confederate flag flying in front of a house in my Greenwood neighborhood. It is at the north-east corner of 92nd and Palatine, just a block west of 92nd and Greenwood Ave N. I would love to know what this ‘means’… but of course don’t want to knock on their door. Maybe others in the area are flying the flag? Maybe it’s a story? Thank you.”

Despite Leftist Outcry, Americans Don’t Want Federally Funded Pornographic Sex Ed

President Trump’s budget proposes increased funding for sexual risk avoidance education in addition to cutting ineffective programs. Left-wing groups are succumbing to histrionics.

The Trump administration is bringing back sexual risk avoidance, or abstinence-based, education, and many on the Left are not happy. When the administration’s 2018 budget proposed cutting former President Obama’s ineffective and expensive Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program (TPP), which uses the comprehensive sex education model of sexual risk reduction, the mainstream media predicted an apocalypse signaled by unplanned pregnancies.

Now, after the release of President Trump’s fiscal-year 2019 budget, which proposes increased funding for sexual risk avoidance education programs in addition to cutting TPPP, left-wing groups are once again succumbing to histrionics. Debra Hauser, the president of the Advocates for Youth, has accused the administration of “refusing to put the health of our youth over their own outdated ideologies.”

Jordan Peterson urges parents to fight radical sex ed: It’s ‘a form of indoctrination’

February 19, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Schools are pushing Ontario’s sex ed curriculum on students in a “completely reprehensible” way, Dr. Jordan Peterson said in an interview with parental rights advocate Tanya Granic Allen, who is running to be the leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario.

If parents don’t approve of what their children are being taught at school, then “don’t send them to the classes,” Peterson said forcefully.

“Keep them at home,” he suggested. “And take the consequences.”

Barbara Kay: Delaware students can now choose their own race. This should end well

The state of Delaware is poised to adopt what is known as “Regulation 225.” Approved both by the Delaware State Education Association and Gov. John Carney, Regulation 225 would safeguard children’s “protected characteristics,” such as gender, age, race, sexual orientation and gender identity. Section 7.4(1) of 225’s Prohibition of Discrimination Code states, “All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race, which is maintained in the school.”

Gender isn’t news. But race? Are they really going there? Yes, they apparently are.

They do want your children: UMich presentation appears to ‘dignify and redeem’ sex between men and boys

A presentation at the University of Michigan will deal with the subject of pederasty, or sex between men and boys, with the professor giving the speech apparently hoping to “dignify and redeem” what he calls “intergenerational modern pederastic relationships.”

The workshop, scheduled for today and titled “Pederastic Kinship: Deidealizing Queer Studies,” will be presented by Kadji Amin, assistant professor of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Emory University, according to an event listing on the University of Michigan’s website.

Hosted by the university’s Doing Queer Studies Now “interdisciplinary workshop,” it will explore the “kinship form” of “modern pederasty.”

The Narrowing of Language: ‘Discrimination’

We live in a world Orwell described so well in 1984. Language, as it has been mutilated and twisted, is the enemy of truth. The compression of language so that a single catch-all term is used to describe a variety of discordant and even contradictory ideas does precisely what Orwell wrote about, so that the only moral terms in 1984 are “good” and “ungood.” Once we accept and adopt the language of totalitarians, we are in a prison with no hope of escape.

Mark Steyn on how the pussyhat became a symbol of oppression

From Mark Steyn:

Unfortunately, the Women’s March in Pensacola is having no truck with celebrating divulvaversity, as they explained in a post helpfully labelled…

Trigger Warning and Content Warning for comments: Transphobia, Cissexism, Racism, mention of Sexual Assault, Genital Mutilation, Misogyny and Trans-Misogyny.

They’re not kidding:

The Pink P*ssy Hat reinforces the notion that woman = vagina and vagina = woman, and both of these are incorrect.

Exactly. These days it’s entirely random. You never know what you’re getting into. As I noted a couple of years back, since the two sexes became multiple genders, and “transsexuals” became “transgenders”, and “sex change” became “gender fluidity, some 60 per cent of transgender persons now retain their original genitalia. For example, my compatriot Gabrielle Tremblay won a Canadian Screen Award for Best Supporting Actress for a film in which she showed her penis.More.

Reality check: But how swiftly! Less than a year ago, the pussyhat was big Big BIG. The left eats its own, as so often in the past. But today, it gulps its own without even tasting them. Getting involved with leftism isn’t so much like getting fattened for slaughter now as like rushing madly over a cliff.
