North Carolina was subjected to a year of being boycotted, until it withdrew its transgender bathroom law. Last month, the National Union of Teachers in Great Britain asked the government to teach children as young as two new transgender theories. New York recently presented the first “trans-doll“. American universities are wracked with hysteria over the correct use of neutral pronouns. Even National Geographic, instead of writing about lions and elephants, started covering the “Gender Revolution”. One of the first announcements of Emmanuel Macron, as the French President-elect, was that he would appoint officials from a “gender equal” list.
A feminist philosophy professor has been pilloried by an outraged academy for suggesting that transgender rights are not substantially different from transracial rights, and if one can choose one’s gender, the same should apply for choosing race.
Although Prof. Rebecca Tuvel’s commonsense arguments are not new, they have elicited particular opprobrium because she represents the progressive academy and dared to publish them in Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy.
EDMONTON, Alberta, April 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A Christian political action group and a parents group are responding to the controversy over a pro-life group comparing the Holocaust to abortion by accusing the New Democratic government of promoting unscientific and dangerous gender ideology.
If it’s tricky to see the connection between the International Day of Pink (It’s Time to Talk About Bullying, Homophobia, Transphobia) and what Eric Brazau was trying to say in court Thursday, it still feels as though there is one.
The Day of Pink was celebrated this week at, among other places, the Toronto District School Board, the biggest one in the country.
Many children and adolescents are “trying out” identifying as transgender because they think it will make them “different,” an Australian psychiatrist who runs a gender clinic in Brisbane told the tabloid The Courier-Mail. He said many more teens and young adults come into his clinic seeking transgender treatments than are actually suffering with long-term gender dysphoria.
Let’s examine gender dysphoria, the underlying condition of identifying as transgender, with a similar but different body identity problem.
An effective way to determine the fundamental nature of a thing is to compare it with something that is similar, but different. For example, what is an oval? It’s an elongated circle. Let’s examine gender dysphoria, the underlying condition of identifying as transgender, with a similar but different body identity problem.
Transgender advocates tell us the encompassing feeling about incongruity between transsexuals’ body and self-concept is unlike anything else humans can experience. Thus, they demand very intentional public acceptance.
University of Toronto professor Jordan Peterson is fast becoming Canada’s free speech crusader: he’s been reprimanded by his university for failing to use politically-correct speech and threatened by self-appointed language Gestapo students who demand gender neutral speech.
Peterson, a clinical psychologist, has become a magnet for controversy between those defending academic freedom and the prevailing leftist environment of academia that emphasizes microaggressions, white privilege and manufactured pronouns for students who pretend they are neither truly male nor female but “self-identifiers.”
President Donald Trump is junking former President Barack Obama’s unpopular federal pro-transgender policies, according to the White House spokesman.
The policy reversal will likely protect single-sex civic groups and institutions — including single-sex bathrooms — across the nation from lawsuits and will put new pressure on federal judges to preserve the central role of biology in defining whether a person is male or female.
A raucous and aggressive group of gays and lesbians voted at the Pride AGM Tuesday night to capitulate to Black Lives Matter (BLM) Toronto and ban police from marching or participating in future parades.
But asked after the vote whether Pride Toronto still welcomes the free police security offered to the yearly parade and other events, board co-chair Alica Hall told me “of course.”
(In 2016, Toronto taxpayers subsidized Pride with $512,000 worth of free police security. That figure does not include the cost of pay-duty police, which is subject to privacy laws.)
Children facing hormone treatment after being diagnosed as transgender could in fact be autistic, according to a leading psychologist.
Youngsters who believe they were born in the wrong body are seven times more likely than others to be on the autistic spectrum, said Dr Kenneth Zucker.
The autistic trait of ‘fixating’ on subjects could convince children they are the wrong sex, he added.
After Dr Zucker lost his job at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, 500 clinicians and academics signed a petition in protest against the ‘political’ decision.
He had been accused of trying to use ‘conversion therapy’ to cure gender-confused children, despite recommending medical intervention for those who continued to feel they were in the wrong body.
He was even told he could be putting children at risk of suicide by trying to discover if they had other mental health issues. Questioning whether these children should receive treatment, he once said: ‘A four-year-old might say that he is a dog – do you go out and buy him dog food?’
Have faith. The Liberal Freak Show won’t last forever.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has held a “public consultation” and issued “revised” guidelines on “hate crimes” and “transphobia”, which are likely to result in ever increasing numbers of people being dragged through court for speech crimes.
Pablo Gomez Jr. participates in a wide range of deviant behavior but still makes time for hating white people in his busy schedule.
A radical left-wing activist who attends the University of California, Berkeley is the prime suspect in a fatal stabbing, and all one of his friends cares about is that he’s labeled by his preferred pronoun in news articles covering the crime.
Pablo Gomez Jr., 24, is suspected of stabbing one woman to death in Berkeley on Friday and injuring another in a separate incident. He was arrested by police in Burbank on Saturday afternoon.
